Japanese Spiderman Is The Marvel Hero We've Needed.

Just when I thought I knew of every single Marvel show and movie out there, I stumbled across footage from 'Supaidaman', a live-action Spiderman series that aired in Japan in the 1970s.

Need a superhero that will rid your town of one of many of Japan's notorious monsters?

SUPAIDAMAN!

Need a superhero that moves like a ninja and shoots hella fake-looking webs at your enemies?

SUPAIDAMAN!

Need a superhero who suits up in a way that more-than-noticeably defies the laws of basic physics?

SUPAIDAMAN!

Supaidaman's got it all - including a knack for slapstick comedy!

As for his theme song? This is probably the best soundtrack song I've ever listened to. (No, seriously. Listen to this.)

So what do you guys think about Supaidaman?

Have I convinced you of his epicness?

(Also, if you're curious, you can probably find subbed episodes online. Stan Lee actually had a lot of control over the creative direction, so I heard it's actually a great watch!)

So I don't know about everyone else here in the community, but personally, I'm a really lazy type of anime nerd. Like, I want to watch so many animes, all the time, but I am too lazy to always go looking to find them. I'm sure there are a couple other lazy folks here on Vingle who feel the same way. Folks who just want to sit down and relax with Netflix, and know what is available to them. I didn't see a comprehensive list of what is available in terms of anime on Netflix, so I decided to assemble this list for everyone. List of Anime available on Netflix: Arpeggio of Blue Steel Attack on Titan Black Butler Bleach Blue Exorcist Deadman Wonderland Death Note The Devil is A Part-Timer!

Working in the Anime Industry: A Struggle
The Japanese Animation Creators Association just recently released the results of a survey taken in 2015 of over 750 different people working in the Anime industry in Japan. Coming from an American standpoint, where our entertainers are paid staggering amounts of money, you might think it would be similar for Anime creators, considering how popular the medium is. You'd be wrong. Here's a collected set of averages from Kotaku that shows the median salary for each different position in the creation of anime. Series Director Average Age: 42 years old Average Monthly Salary: 540,833 yen ($5,036) Average Yearly Salary: 6,490,000 yen ($60,437) Chief Animation Director Average Age: 43 years old Average Monthly Salary: 470,000 yen ($4,378) Average Yearly Salary: 5,640,000 yen ($52,521) Producer Average Age: 39 years old Average Monthly Salary: 451,667 yen ($4,206) Average Yearly Salary: 5,420,000 yen ($50,471) Character Designer Average Age: 38 years old Average Monthly Salary: 425,000 yen ($3,958) Average Yearly Salary: 5,100,000 yen ($47,491) Animation Director Average Age: 38 years old Average Monthly Salary: 327,500 yen ($3,045) Average Yearly Salary: 3,930,000 yen ($36,602) 3DCG Animator Average Age: 34 years old Average Monthly Salary: 320,000 yen ($2,980) Average Yearly Salary: 3,840,000 yen ($35,764) Episode Director Average Age: 41 years old Average Monthly Salary: 316,667 yen ($2,949) Average Yearly Salary: 3,800,000 yen ($35,391) Storyboarder Average Age: 49 years old Average Monthly Salary: 310,000 yen ($2,887) Average Yearly Salary: 3,720,000 yen ($34,647) Art Director (Background Art) Average Age: 35 years old Average Monthly Salary: 285,000 yen ($2,655) Average Yearly Salary: 3,420,000 yen ($31,864) Color Designer Average Age: 38 years old Average Monthly Salary: 278,333 yen ($2,593) Average Yearly Salary: 3,340,000 yen ($31,120) Cinematographer Average Age: 34 years old Average Monthly Salary: 265,833 yen ($2,476) Average Yearly Salary: 3,190,000 yen ($29,723) Production Assistant Average Age: 30 years old Average Monthly Salary: 257,000 yen ($2,394) Average Yearly Salary: 3,090,000 yen ($28,788) Key Animator Average Age: 36 years old Average Monthly Salary: 235,000 yen ($2,189) Average Yearly Salary: 2,820,000 yen ($26,271) Inbetween Checker Average Age: 35 years old Average Monthly Salary: 217,500 yen ($2,026) Average Yearly Salary: 2,610,000 yen ($24,314) Layout Artist/Rough Keyart Average Age: 38 years old Average Monthly Salary: 195,000 yen ($1,817) Average Yearly Salary: 2,340,000 yen ($21,800) Paint Staff Average Age: 26 years old Average Monthly Salary: 162,000 yen ($1,509) Average Yearly Salary: 1,950,000 yen ($18,167) 2nd Key Animation/Clean-Up Average Age: 27 years old Average Monthly Salary: 93,333 yen ($870) Average Yearly Salary: 1,120,000 yen ($10,434) Inbetween Staff Average Age: 24 years old Average Monthly Salary: 92,500 yen ($862) Average Yearly Salary: 1,110,000 yen ($10,340) The people at the top of the pyramid make the most; that's something we can understand universally. However, even at the highest salary, the numbers still pale in comparison to what series directors would be receiving here in the States. It only gets more depressing as you go down the list, where some of these positions mean that these employees are making less than minimum wage. Considering the amount of work and pressure these people are under, it's a little disheartening to see how little they earn for their efforts. So, maybe rethink your foray into the industry for now...
FIVE Philosophical Anime Quotes
Aside from the amazing art, story, and fan service, avid fans adore the lessons learned from their favorite characters. A lot of the times, other people just don't understand what it is that draws us to what they consider childish cartoons. And for us, we cringe at the sound of that. Well, for one, anime series usually have a deeper meaning that's filled with fantasy, scifi, and everything creatively in between. This importantly goes for dialogue as well. Here are just 5 of many quotes I pulled from some of your favorite anime characters. By all means, comment with some of your favorite anime quotes. Wolf's Rain "Dying or getting killed isnโ€™t something unnatural. Living aimlessly without a purpose is." - Kiba Kiba is hard headed. But completely right. What's the point of living if your life isn't yours to control? Life is hard and it's too easy to give up. But when you have a sense of purpose, your mind is focused and you evolve as an individual. Nana "I always thought that life was about standing your ground, no matter how strong the current was. But going with the flow isnโ€™t so bad after all. As long as it takes you forward." - Osaki Nana Two girls with the same name but are complete polar opposites share an apartment together, but they end up becoming the best of friends. I love it when characters discover new ways to invigorate their state of mind. And Nana definitely isn't closed minded about anything. Sometimes looking at things from a different perspective can lead you to what you're seeking. Cowboy Bebop "Man always thinks about the past before he dies, as if he were frantically searching for proof that he truly lived." - Jet Black Jet, although not the main character, still delivers great lessons to be learned. Especially from his two partners who seem to be very lackluster in doing things. Jet understands what it is to be human and to live a fulfilling life. Code Geass "We wondered what happiness would look like if we could give it a physical form? If I'm not mistaken, I think it was Suzaku who said that the shape of happiness might resemble glass. His reasoning made sense. He said that even though you don't usually notice it, it's still definitely there. You merely have to change your point of view slightly, and that glass will sparkle when it reflects the light. I doubt that anything could argue its existence more eloquently." I can quote this anime all day! This one is sometimes overlooked. But the message is definitely deep. Friendship is how a lot of us stick together. We laugh, cry, and even get upset at each other. But no matter what, they're still there to help you up. Being able to relate friendship to a physical form is genius and beautiful. Fullmetal Alchemist "Stand up and walk. Move on. After all, you have two perfect legs to stand on." - Edward Elric Coming from a boy who lost an arm and a leg, there's no excuse not to pick yourself up and keep moving forward.
