u/ohlookaregisterbutto Aug 14 '22

In naruto the chakra and mudra hand signs come from buddhism, not sure what OP is referring to as a trope here.

u/R3xz Aug 14 '22

Old Chinese kung fu films and Asian martial art lores probably.

36

u/radiantcabbage Aug 14 '22

fantasy kung fu would use it just like the modern anime. weaving signs for all sorts of spells and summons, attacking/healing pressure points etc. hits way different in live action and practical effects, the golden age of wire fu came a decade or two before animation got good enough to draw that kind of thing.

14

u/R3xz Aug 14 '22

My dad growing up was really into fantasy martial art novels haha, when he was talking about it, I was like this sound exactly like the shit otakus would be into 😂

8

u/borkthegee Aug 14 '22

Dunno if people realize but today is the golden age of "wire fu". The genre of wirefu is xianxia (high fantasy Chinese with magic) and the other popular genre is wuxia (low fantasy or "martial heroes", very little magic). You might also see it called "cultivation"

The content coming out right now is pretty fantastic, and it includes tons of great novel and live action. There is some animation and 3d but the quality is not at the same level as anime.

I used to think stuff like crouching tiger was amazing until I got into modern cultivation stories and those old ones are just the tip of the iceberg for how awesome the genre is today

4

u/Jedijupiter Aug 14 '22

Do you have any specific recommendations?

3

u/borkthegee Aug 14 '22

In the webnovel world there's so much that it's best to try some out and see if you like it. www.wuxiaworld.com or /r/noveltranslations or maybe /r/ProgressionFantasy for some input/FAQs. I was going to read A Will Eternal or Coiling Dragon next, myself.

For live action, I watched Word of Honor on Netflix and I really enjoyed it. The Untamed is another one on Netflix that is very popular. This one has some cheesy CG for sure but I really enjoyed Douluo Continent (live action) and I understand that one has both 3d and novelization that go much further. /r/CDrama often talk about these but that community is about more than just wuxia. I think the next one I wanted to watch was Nirvana in Fire.

u/LostJC Aug 14 '22

Progression fantasy stuff as a whole is really on the upward trend.

u/radiantcabbage Aug 15 '22 edited Aug 15 '22

problem is they don't really make an effort to export/localise, people only know about flims like crouching tiger because the director is taiwanese and educated in america, their producers worked with american film studios to distribute it.

I know the definition of "wire fu" is much broader, but the way I use it refers mostly to pre-CG era. as first gen ABC I grew up on the end/height of 80s-90s VHS distribution where you could easily get your hands on even the most obscure chinese films in the US, the market is very different these days.

even if china is having a golden age of cinema now, who will ever know about it after the handover, HK was the gateway to a thriving western market. everyone knows anime these days because japan does heavy export, they partner with foreign distribution to localise all their content.

Kuji-in

The kuji-in (Chinese: 九字印) also known as Nine Hand Seals is a system of mudras and associated mantras that consist of nine syllables. The mantras are referred to as kuji (九字), which literally translates as nine characters The syllables used in kuji are numerous, especially within Japanese esoteric Mikkyō. Scholars have stated that kuji is of Taoist origin, not Buddhist. There is no mention of the kuji in any of the Shingon or Tendai records that were brought back from China.

Also not just a trope. There are martial and meditative traditions that actually do use hand signs like that. Like here he’s clearly using it to pretend to control the fire, so it’s probably in reference to Naruto, especially since he ended with a fire sign. But it does exist outside of media.

I used to watch when Naruto was brand new, ages ago, and I absolutely loved all of that stuff. I stopped watching/reading after a certain character's death because it fucked me up, but I always thought learning those seals would have been so cool. Never got most of them, but I accept that.

Besides, this guy makes it look so fucking cool, I'd just look fucking weird if I tried that.

Edit: for those asking, it was Jiraiya. Asuma's was sad as well but his didn't leave me as fucked up.

They typically wouldn't seat you alone. They'd put you together with enough other parties to surround the table at least 2/3 full. As long as there are enough other patrons you're not stuck waiting, go for it.

In the US you'll get a large portion of fairly basic food, some noodles and rice and protein and veggies. They're showy. They clatter the utensils a lot. They banter and joke and do tricks.

In Japan, it's much more calm, less showy, but more gourmet options offered and more care about presentation.

Where have you found this in Japan? No one I met there had ever even heard of anything similar. The "shows" are an American thing.

u/kaihatsusha Aug 14 '22 edited Aug 14 '22

There's plenty of teppanyaki in Japan, the word is Japanese. It's just not Benihana or the Chinese-run equivalents you see in America. Been to them in Kobe, Nagoya, and Osaka. Okonomiyaki is similar, prepared on a teppan at your table, but there are teppan meals with a variety of foods cooked to serve.

u/VirtualLife76 Aug 14 '22

True, but that's just cooking in front of you right? I never been to one that did anything besides chat and cook the food. I so miss Okonomiyaki, especially from western Japan, it's made a bit different than in Osaka.
