    About

    Death Parade Opening Parodies refers to a number of Anime opening parodies based around the first opening to the 2015 anime series Death Parade, Flyers, by Japanese band BRADIO. After the series first premiered, the song gained popularity online due to it’s upbeat nature, in contrast to that of the show, spawning many parodies.

    Origin

    The parodies originate from the opening to the 2015 anime drama, Death Parade, which was animated by Studio Madhouse and started airing on January 9th, 2015. The show stars Decim, a bartender at the bar “Quindecim”, which acts as a purgatory to help decide whether people should go to heaven or hell, forcing customers to play a game in order to determine who goes where. The opening to the show, Flyers, sung by Japanese indie rock band BRADIO (Shown Below), was first posted to YouTube by YouTuber DeathParadeOfficial[1], and has gained over 1,600,000 views as of March 2015.

  • 03/15/15--14:47: Captain Falcon
  • Author’s Note: This article is a W.I.P., so feel free to request editorship if you would like to help out.

    About

    Captain Falcon is the main protagonist of the racing video game franchise F-Zero. Known as the mascot of the F-Zero franchise, he is more commonly known for his presence in the video game fighting franchise Super Smash Bros.

    Origin

    The first addition to the F-Zero franchise was released in Japan for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System on November 21st, 1990. This game marks the debut of Captain Falcon, who is mostly accommodated by his racing vehicle, the Blue Falcon. Inspired by the Formula One races, Nintendo envisioned Captain Falcon as the flagship character of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, however the plan never was carried out, due to Captain Falcon rarely making appearances across Nintendo media. In F-Zero, Captain Falcon is one of the best racers in the circuit and is a relentless bounty hunter.

    Spread

    On July 14th, 1998, F-Zero X was released onto the then new Nintendo 64 in Japan. Only a year later, the fighting video game Super Smash Brothers was released on the Nintendo 64 and included Captain Falcon as a playable character, although locked upon startup. In 2001, Super Smash Bros. Melee introduced Captain Falcon as a playable character upon startup for the first time, along with Ness, the posterchild of the Earthbound franchise. On July 25th, 2003, F-Zero GX was released onto the Nintendo GameCube in Japan, ironically developed by rival company _SEGA_’s Amusement Vision department. In 2008, Captain Falcon became a playable character again in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Unlike Melee, however, he is locked on startup once again. Since F-Zero Climax was exclusively released in Japan on October 21st, 2004, the F-Zero franchise has been on hiatus.

  • 03/15/15--15:44: Stop it, Boner
  • About

    Stop It, Boner is a picture of a character having an unwanted erection. It has become a staple of reaction image when being confronted to any material that could provoke the weirdest boner.

    Origin

    The initial image comes from a 2-panes comic made by an anonymous user and featuring a man looking in dismay at his computer screen before turning away, revealing he has an unwanted erection (shown below, left). While there is no precise archived mention of its first appearance, its earliest recorded use was found in a 4chan’s /tg/ (Traditional Games) thread about tabletop games, in a post made on February 15th 2011[1] reacting to another poster talking about kobold porn. Then, as early as June 8th 2011, a cut version of the second panel with the character saying “Stop it, boner” to which the bulge in his pants retorts “no”(shown below, right) was posted in another /tg/ thread[2].



    Precursor: “why, boner?”

    As a similar note, two other pictures on the same theme have been circulating as reaction images on imageboards in order to describe this feeling of unwanted arousal towards questionable material. The first one is a drawing of a man’s lower half sitting on a chair with an apparent bulge[3] (shown below, left) posted as early as February 7th 2011 and the other, a 2-panes image of a stick figures looking at a computer screen in disbelief[4], posted as early as March 24th 2011 (shown below, right). Both displayed the phrase “Why, Boner?”, that has been defined on Urban Dictionary on April 22nd 2011 as “getting a boner for some reason you can’t explain; getting a boner when you consciously know you shouldn’t be having one. (see: should not want)”[5].



    Spread

    Although the initial blank 2-pane comic continued to be reused as a reaction image of its own, as it was the case in the comment section of the “Oh No They Didn’t” Livejournal for example[6], the cut version became reposted on various websites such as Funny Junk as early as August 18th 2011[7] where several parodies were made, the Cheezburger“Dating Fails” section[8] or even TVTropes, as an online example referencing the “Strangely Arousing” trope[9].

  • 03/16/15--08:01: Open the Gate!
  • About

    Open the Gate! is an exploitable based off of a comic by the Belgian cartoonist Jeroom. While many edits are based off of a change of heart over something problematic, which was present in the original comic, other edits take a meta approach or focus on the relationship between the guards featured in the comic.

    Origin

    The original comic, which featured several guards discussing an approaching transgender woman, was published by Jeroom on February 27, 2013. The comic was translated into English and posted onto a Facebook page for translated Jeroom comics the next day.[1]

    Spread

    The day the original comic was posted, an unofficial translation was posted onto /r/funny, where it gained over 1,000 upvotes.[3] Some time afterward, said unofficial translation was posted onto 4chan, where users created various edits of it. An Imgur gallery of these edits was posted to the subreddit /r/4chan.[2]

    About

    Consensual Sex in the Missionary Position (often extended to Consensual Sex In The Missionary Position For The Sole Purpose Of Procreating) is a meme mocking the softness of missionary position sex. The phrase commonly gets ironic responses calling the act highly vile or lewd. A popular variation of it is holding hands.

    Origin

    The phrase was first posted on the Newgrounds Forums on November 8th, 2007[1] in response to a NSFW post earlier in the thread. Many also believe the phrase actually originated on 4chan’s /b/ (Random) or /d/ (Hentai/Alternative) board, which can’t be confirmed as archived versions of either boards don’t go back to 2007 or earlier.

    Spread

    The phrase gained most on its spread through 4chan’s /d/ (Hentai/Alternative) board, a board that focuses on uncommon and extreme fetishes that are often considered shock content. Threads focusing on consensual sex would be considered out of place and are quickly identified as joke threads. Other boards where the phrase can be found include /a/[2] (Anime & Manga) and /b/[3] (Random).



    The first definition to the phrase was added to Urban Dictionary on October 17th, 2008 (shown below);[4] followed by an extended version 2 years later on October 07th;[5] which have gotten respectively over 320 and 120 likes as of March 2015. over The phrase also appeared in fetish threads on My Anime List[6] in 2009 and the Bodybuilding Forums[7] in 2011. A page for the phrase was also created on the 1d4chan Wiki[8] in March 2011. A Facebook page[9] named after it gained nearly 500 likes as of March 2015 since its creation 5 years earlier. Trope Wiki Tv Tropes describes the reactions as “Your Normal Is Our Taboo.”[10]

    “The most disgusting act one can engage in.”

    Holding Hands

    Holding hands is another meme, that is used in a similar manner to Consensual Sex in the Missionary Position. Threads with hand holding as the topic will often receive satirical replies usually criticizing how the original poster is sick or lewd. Related images of this at time feature anime characters with unnecessary censorship photoshopped over the hands to add further lewdness.

  • 03/16/15--14:25: Are They Still On Namek?
  • About

    Are They Still On Namek? is a catchphrase used by anime fans in order to reference story arcs from popular anime shows that seem to be dragging on for too long or that may contain too many perceived filler episodes, thus asking if a story has moved on or not. The sentence is directly related to popular anime franchise Dragon Ball Z, especially its story arc taking place on the remote planet Namek.

    Origin

    According to the Lurkmore page[1], the phrase was coined on 4chan’s/a/ (anime & manga) board around 2005 in threads discussing the Bleach anime and its Soul Society Arc, a storyline that was cut into two season, displayed over 43 episodes and first broadcasted between March 1st 2005 and January 10th 2006. Considered way too long for an arc by many users, they drew comparisons with Dragon Ball Z’s Namek Saga and especially the final 5-minute battle between Goku and Frieza that was originally cut into 10 episodes for a total 3 hour-long broadcast time.
    While there is no archive of these events, One of the earliest use of the catchphrase outside 4chan was made on January 7th 2006 in a D-Addicts forum thread about the Naruto tv show[2].

    Spread

    On July 20th, 2007 a post in an IGN thread about random images highlighted a parody reusing the phrase[3]. In september of that year, a thread titled “Are they still on Namek?” was made on the stadium-arcanium website[4]. Another one, titled “Why are they still on namek?” was created in december in the Bleach sub-section of Naruto Forums[5]. On November 19th, 2009, a post about the meme and its relationship with the Bleach series was made in a GameFAQ thread[6]. The phrase became used as a prime example of the “Arc fatigue”[7] trope applied to Anime and Manga on TVTropes as well as being mentioned as a trivia on the Dragon Ball wikia page for “Namek”[8].
    In June 2011, popular Youtuber and Abridge Series makers TeamFourStar released the 24th episode of their parody series Dragon Ball Z Abridged. In it, the character of Krillin (voiced by Lanipator) is making a reference to the meme (shown below).



    Krillin: You know Gohan, it just occured to me.
    Gohan: Yeah Krillin?
    Krillin: We are STILL on Namek.
    Gohan: What do you mean?
    Krillin: Well I mean it feels like we have been here for like… a year.
    Gohan: But we have only been here for six days!
    Krillin: I know right!


    On 4chan specifically, archives featuring the phrase can be seen as early as 2011[9]. On March 13th 2015, a thread with a picture of villain Frieza and the sentence “this thread will be deleted in 5 minutes” was posted to 4chan’s /v/ (video games) board. Prior to being archived, an anonymous user answered with the phrase “Are They Still On Namek?”[10]

  • 03/17/15--17:23: Notorious R.B.G.
  • About

    Notorious R.B.G. is a social justice blog and cultural trend that depicts U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg as a “badass,” gangster-like figure.[1] The trend has spawned a variety of macros, paraphernalia, and even books, but Ginsburg’s reaction to the notoriety has drawn criticism from legal scholars who argue that the added publicity impinges on Ginsburg’s duty to remain impartial on the bench.[2]

    History

    Notorious R.B.G.[3], named as a nod to hip-hop performer The Notorious B.I.G., was created on Tumblr in June 2015 by NYU law student Shana Knizhnik in support of Ginburg’s dissent in Shelby County v. Holder, which struck down a portion of the Voting Rights Act.[1][4] The blog’s inaugural post quoted Ginsburg’s dissent:

    “Throwing out preclearance when it has worked and is continuing to work to stop discriminatory changes is like throwing away your umbrella in a rainstorm because you are not getting wet.”[5]

    Since then, the blog has posted quotes, stories, photographs, artwork, image macros, and merchandise related to Ginsburg and many social justice causes with which she is associated. The blog has been reported by the Huffington Post[6], MSNBC[7], Politico Magazine[8], the Washington Post[9], TIME[10], and others. It was featured in the ABA Journal’s “8th Annual Blawg 100.”[14]

    Merchandise

    The first instance of Notorious R.B.G. merchandise was created by Tumblr user charlesdingusesquire on the same day as Knizhnik’s initial post.[11] In approximately one year, Knizhnik is reported to have sold thousands of T-shirts of various designs.[4] Previously, shirt-selling campaigns have been used to raise money for Planned Parenthood[15] and the Advancement Project[16]. Ginsburg admitted to personally having a large supply of the shirts,[10] and enjoys giving them to friends as gifts.[17]

    Biography

    In January 2015, New Your Magazine’s The Cut reported that Knizhnik is teaming up with MSNBC reporter Irin Carmon to write a Notorious R.B.G. biography. The book, entitled Notorious R.B.G.: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg will be “an unobjective and irreverent celebration of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s life and role in the women’s movement.”[12][13]

    In March of 2015, a variant cover of DC Comics Batgirl #41 raised controversy over the cover art. A hastag called “#ChangeTheCover” was used on Twitter over the weekend of March 14, 2015 to convince DC Comics to not print any issues of the comic with the cover.

    History

    In March of 2015, DC Comics revealed a Joker themed variant cover for issue number 41 of their most recent Batgirl comic story arc, which was drawn by artist Rafael Albuquerque. According to Albuquerque, the artwork was created as an homage to Alan Moore’s famous Joker centered graphic novel The Killing Joke (released in 1988). Controversy over the artwork soon erupted on websites such as Twitter, leading to a hashtag campaign called “#ChangeTheCover” in order to convince DC Comics to not print any issues with this specific cover art.

    Concerns raised about the artwork came from groups who felt the artwork depicted a situation that comes dangerously close to depicting acts such as sexual assault, or that depicting Batgirl (Barbara Gordon) in such a vulnerable position made her look too similar to female victims of other violent acts. Artist Rafael Albuquerque asserted that the cover was not meant to depict such actions, but rather showcase the dark history between Batgirl/Barbara Gordon and The Joker. In an official statement, Albuquerque stated:

    “My Batgirl variant cover artwork was designed to pay homage to a comic that I really admire, and I know is a favorite of many readers. ‘The Killing Joke’ is part of Batgirl’s canon and artistically, I couldn’t avoid portraying the traumatic relationship between Barbara Gordon and the Joker. For me, it was just a creepy cover that brought up something from the character’s past that I was able to interpret artistically.”

    However, despite affirming that the artwork was not created with the intent of depicting the acts raised by those who complained about the cover, the decision was ultimately made the following week to no longer publish any issues with the variant cover. Both Rafael Albuquerque and DC Comics released further statements on the decision:

    Albuquerque:

    But it has become clear, that for others, it touched a very important nerve. I respect these opinions and, despite whether the discussion is right or wrong, no opinion should be discredited. My intention was never to hurt or upset anyone through my art. For that reason, I have recommended to DC that the variant cover be pulled. I’m incredibly pleased that DC Comics is listening to my concerns and will not be publishing the cover art in June as previously announced. With all due respect, Rafa

    DC Comics:

    We publish comic books about the greatest heroes in the world, and the most evil villains imaginable. The Joker variant covers for June are in recognition of the 75th anniversary of the Joker. Regardless if fans like Rafael Albuquerque’s homage to Alan Moore’s THEKILLINGJOKE graphic novel from 25 years ago, or find it inconsistent with the current tonality of the Batgirl books – threats of violence and harassment are wrong and have no place in comics or society. We stand by our creative talent, and per Rafael’s request, DC Comics will not publish the Batgirl variant. – DC Entertainment

    About

    “Intelligent, Nihilistic, and with a Wicked Sense of Humor” is a copypasta used to describe oneself as being similar to a fictional character from some sort of medium, usually to make oneself look edgy and dangerous.

    Origin

    The copypasta originated from 4chan’s /v/ board. On July 23rd, 2014, an anonymous user started a thread[1] asking others if video game characters reminded them of themselves. The original post had a picture of Final Fantasy VI antagonist Kefka and the following comment:

    ITT: Characters that remind you of yourself

    For me it’s Kefka – intelligent, nihilistic and with a wicked sense of humor.

    Spread

    For the most part, the copypasta was associated with Kefka, though on September 16th, 2014, it was used with another similar character, the Joker from Batman comics[2]. On November 7th, 2014, the copypasta started to be more widely used with other characters like Max Payne[3], Legate Lanius[4] from Fallout New Vegas, Kyle Hyde[5] from Hotel Dusk: Room 215, and Master Chief[6] from Halo series.
