“Graveyard of Empires” Claims Another Victim (by The Corbett Report) (H.T.T.P.S.) by CompleteDoubterII in Afghanistan

[–]CompleteDoubterII[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

There is one claim here that I doubt. That is that the 'Chinese are swooping in to make deals with the Taliban'. The New World Next Week link he gives has him saying, with regards to China and Afghanistan, that they're going to be there to make their deals, they will easily beat N.A.T.O.'s spending, their pledges and the demand to get rid of ETIM. The Xinhua article is mainly just about those pledges with that demand mentioned. The U.S. News article cites anonymous sources for recognising the Taliban as Afghanistan's legitimate ruler if Kabul falls. I don't find it very convincing. The article also links to a War on the Rocks article with verifiable sources and concludes that it will most likely stay neutral, meaning work with both the Afghanistan government and the Taliban in the future, or have a rather restrained relationship with the Taliban. Likewise, this is further supported by the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs declining to comment in the U.S. News article, for if they were swooping in to make deals with the Taliban it would benefit relations to confirm their recognition of them as Afghanistan's legitimate ruler; likewise denying it would anger the Taliban but improve relations with Afghanistan's current government; but they do neither, showing in my view a willingness to stay neutral.

You may wish to also look at someone's, seemingly the developer's, announcement of this on Reddit (through Teddit, through Kddit). I posted the announcement on Notabug and made the first two comments. In case the order of comments becomes difficult to figure out, the first one was 'It apparently can bypass age restrictions for some people, which is better than Invidious which has a problem where age restricted videos don't play.' and the second was 'Piped doesn't work for me, though.'

I cannot vouch for the Liar Game live action because I did not watch it and there is no anime of it. As I said, I highly recommend reading the manga.

I would say Hyouka is probably the anime least like Death Note on that list (with the exception of Moriarty the Patriot, which I cannot speak of since I did not watch it). The animes on that list most similar to Death Note are One Outs, The Promised Neverland and Talentless Nana, in my view. But the most similar thing to Death Note is Liar Game, and it's better than Death Note's manga.

Why did you stop watching anime in or after 2018?

[–]CompleteDoubterII 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

The flu seriously harms those who survive? I don't know much biology, but that seems absurd (also I am confident the point of saying something is like the flu is to say it is mild, not serious). Regarding the long-term damage being the same as the flu, some would disagree (to be fair, Moon of Alabama has gone totally insane (see point number six). Even if there is no proof of long term side effects, if serious long term side effects are a reasonable possibility, then the issue becomes vastly more complicated. It would be problematic if a very non-lethal virus spreads to the vast majority of the population, only to give them serious heart damage or something of that sort; although lockdowns themselves are serious health issues. Not that I have looked into Covid-19 much.

I feel obliged to emphasise Talentless Nana in particular because it is a direct spiritual inversion of Death Note. Marketing and the first episode disguise it as something else and the series' true premise is revealed as a twist at episode one's (or chapter one's, for the manga) end, but the story is far more interesting (and original) than the marketing's disguise. In a world where people with supernatural abilities have been declared dangerous, the government sends them to isolated islands disguised as what are essentially superhero schools (they made up an enemy which they call 'enemies of humanity' to justify these schools and sending them off) so they can send assassins to kill them. The show follows Nana, one of these assassins, as she tries to complete her mission. The inversion is that while Death Note follows a man who has a single supernatural power and he uses that single power, exclusive to him and a few others, to fight against the government with vastly more powerful realistic resources (Light only had a few underlings, L had the entire police force, L had the power to make a T.V. broadcast whereas Light didn't (until he used his supernatural power to make T.V. stations air his message, with the police's approval)), Talentless Nana follows a woman who has the government on her side and has the realistic resources on her side (she is a trained assassin, has poisoned needles given to her and can psychologically profile and observe people) which she uses in order to deduce her targets' supernatural powers, their weaknesses and then cleverly figures out how to kill them.

With regards to my point about the cat and mouse game; like Death Note's early episodes, the cat and mouse game between Nana and Kyoya (an intelligent student attending the fake superhero school) isn't very good. There is one epic confrontation between Nana and Kyoya, like there is between Light and L in episode two, but then the cat and mouse game declines in quality. Like Death Note, the cat and mouse game is at its best after Light kills the F.B.I. agents; before that the main entertainment comes from Light using his Death Note to try and figure out how to deal with the F.B.I. agents. While L made some cool deductions in the early stages, they were too few and far between, and only in reaction to Light's actions, if I recall correctly. This is much like the cat and mouse game between Nana and Kyoya, while Kyoya does make some smart deductions, they are few and far between and only after Nana has done something. The show's main entertainment, as I mentioned above, comes from Nana puzzling through her targets' supernatural abilities and weaknesses.

I must also emphasise that the finale, as in the final few episodes, are utter garbage.

If you liked Death Note, the following anime are also recommended:

  • Code Geass (tactical warfare and intelligent use of a supernatural power; be warned of some plot contrivances)

  • One Outs (if Light Yagami was a baseball pitcher)

  • The Promised Neverland (season one is a battle of wits just like Death Note, although the manga it is adapted from is better)

  • Talentless Nana (despite the OP advertising it, the cat and mouse game between Nana and Kyoya is not the series' best point; it is watching Nana puzzle out what the Talented's supernatural powers are, their weaknesses and finding a clever way to kill them. Also, the first episode disguises the series' true nature, so watch the first two episodes to find out if it is for you. Be warned that the finale is utter garbage.)

  • No Game No Life (some of the plots were ridiculous, but some were really impressive; I should also warn you of heavy fanservice)

  • Kaiji (gambling)

  • Akagi (mah-jong)

  • Moriarty The Patriot (I have heard this is a battle of wits but have never watched it, will do so soon)

  • Hyouka (a mystery show with a completely different tone from Death Note but good mysteries)

I'll link you to here, here, here, here and here.

By the way, although it is not an anime, I would highly recommend you read the Liar Game manga. Read it scanlated online, for it is not available for purchase in English.

The post you link to says your reasons for using it are personal so they do not apply to anyone but you. It is really easy to use YouTube yourself while posting links to Invidious. Alternatively, only some of the reasons in that post are personal. I can only see point number one as a reason to recommend YouTube above Invidious. For point number two and three, the same content that exists on ThemTube is on Invidious, so the ideas on there are the same, so no reason to promote YouTube above Invidious there. In fact, some of the content that would be region-blocked or age restricted on YouTube would be easily accessible on Invidious, so points two and three actually favour linking to Invidious. Regarding point number four, I cannot believe a decline in quality is a reason to use something. The rest of the points are obviously personal. Is it really worth supporting the Google corporation (and making others do the same) just for a better media player? The Invidious player isn't all that bad and the features you state (speed, resolution and playback) can all be customised on Invidious' player.
