    What's the latest season that came out? Three? I watched that and stopped after like two episodes because what happened was stupid.

    But I think the problems with the show go deeper than what the plot is at that point. I think the overall conflict is poorly developed and the villains are weak, it has that Harry Potter effect where it makes less and less sense that people would just go to school as normal while the threat escalates (but at least HP addresses and thematicises that in its story), the world building is very superficial and it wears you down after a while, the same is true with the constant sexism and objectification of teenage girl characters. I know it's just your regular mainstream Shounen show so I don't want to act like it needs to meet some high standards but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

    Todoroki is still my son though.

    Yeah, the dangerous school thing is addressed in Season 3, Shigaraki is weak because he's learning to be a villain, and IMO MHA treats its female cast better than most other battle shonen. It's my personal theory that all the objectification is centered on Yaoyorozu to spare the rest of the female cast from the executives' demands for fanservice and Mineta is literally just Horikoshi telling everyone who wants that kind of crap that they are disturbed freaks just like Grape Boy.

    Well most anime is terrible, and a lot of that for this reason. There's enough good ones though that doesn't do that.

    I think this is a good suggestion presented extremely poorly.

    I dunno, I’d prefer to see Swahili, Zimbabwe, and so on long before a Niger Valley civ, since Mali is so close.

    Nigeria as a modern respawn of Mali, maybe.

    Okay, much too sane. So, for the silly effect: First of the UHVs: Steal 2000 gold from other players once the internet has been invented.

    See this is why context is important.
    I hate this statement, but given that you have picked Houtarou Oreki as an avatar in the past, it maybe that you have good taste in anime.
    Personally I can't wait to see Sarazanmai, given that it's made by Kunihiko Ikuhara (of Utena fame). his work often subverts the worst in anime trope while being super gayyyyyyy in a good way.

    BUT IM OF TOPIC THIS THREAD IS ABOUT BAD IDEAS!!!

    We should add great diplomats to the game and add the RX-78-2 Gundam as a Japanese Great diplomat

    add an "Anime is saved!" Event. Does not require an "anime is being destroyed" event to trigger.

    Add Hayao Miyazaki as a Great Artist with his famous quote:

    “Anime was a mistake.”

    Add "anime" as a tech with a 1000% decrease in productivity.

    PS the last anime I watched was Digimon... so I'm definitely an expert on this.
