      What would you change about anime if you could?

      This I thought would be a interesting forum to start up.


      I love anime, I love the variety of shows and the freedom to be creative in ways other mediums cannot.

      However, as a near 30 year old there are some things I do wish I could change about anime. I would love more anime shows that have adult protagonists, and not be set in high school.


      What would you change if you could? Any cliches or troupes that bother you?

      Re: What would you change about anime if you could?

      The sexualization of minors, and the minor-ification of sexuality. Not just the fact that underaged characters are sexualized, but making sexualized characters look younger and younger over the years with more and more blase attitude about it.

      Anime feeds the doujin and hentai industry, loli becomes more and more mainstream, and it feeds right back into anime and back again, and if nobody thinks there isn't the same cycle between loli hentai and doujins and actual child porn, they're goddamn wrong. I've seen memes about artists admitting they model their loli art after child porn. And because loli is mainstream enough to be accepted in some circles now, you're starting to see meme circles giving a pass to pedophilia as well, and as a function of that acceptance, more people show lack of restraint in falling into pedophilia. It may be indirect, and it may not affect the majority of anime fans, but this aspect of anime culture promotes an acceptance of child pornography, which ultimately endangers children. I think there are other people who see this happening, and no one wants to talk about it--certainly not in the industry, since they know that if they make any waves over it, the public would force the government to regulate art and it could take the entire industry downhill and it would be a lot harder to sell anime and a lot harder to find jobs.

      Re: What would you change about anime if you could?

      I cannot think of too many cliches or tropes, but I would probably want it to be more focused on substance than just using eye candy.

      For example, I tried watching Attack on Titan, which people seem to be raving about and claim it is deep, but I did not really notice any of this deep stuff, as I only noticed some basic things needed to draw in audiences. Right now, I see it like some similar to what South Park brought up in the Tale of Scrotie McBoogerballs, where people see themes and other messages that are not really in a work.

      Mindless entertainment can be good some of the time, but I got into anime because things seemed to be different from the norm, and with shows like Attack on Titan, that is becoming less and less, especially with how much easier streaming has made it to watch anime.
      read my reviews at my blog.

      Couldn't agree more with this.

      I would change this about anime in a heartbeat if i could.

      Women treating men like pervs
      Parents don't exist

      Re: What would you change about anime if you could?

      The over use of filler, aka, episodes that don't have anything to do with the plot and/or reusing scenes from previous episodes in the form of "flash backs" in order to stretch out the series...

      Sexual fanservice can go and stay gone.

      Re: What would you change about anime if you could?

      I would like to see more adult protagonists too, I would echo most of what has been said here. I don't have a big problem with fan sexual fan service in appropriate series. However I do agree that I wish the characters were aged up.
      I would like to see more full relationships explored in anime, thier life dating ectr not just the romantic climax being holding hands or a small peck on the lips.

      "Look, that's just being happy, not having fun! Listen, what I'm asking is if you personally enjoy it. I don't care about others, I'm asking if there's anything that you can enjoy from your heart."

      nothing wrong with a bit of fanservice, when in the proper amount it can be of great benifiet to a series, however with that said many series do take it to far and I'd like to see that gone

      I know what you mean, loli does seem to be becoming more accepted sadly, the problem is Japan is far more accepting of such matters, the age of concent is lower, etc, you'll notice most of this content actually comes out of Japan, to be honest the anime industry really needs to be careful of this, if the media gets ahold of this it'll be a censorstorm against art, perhaps even leading to perfectly acceptable anime being caught in the crossfire

      In fact several games that don't even have primarily loli's have been banned in the uk, its only a matter of time before someone suggests a full on ban on japanese media, I predict we'll see it in the next 5 years..

      I know what you mean, I'd suggest looking into some more obscure animes, I find a bulk of otaku community like action shonen animes, which isn't an issue but it does tend to drown out shows with deep plots and substance, such shows exist, you just have to look for them

      Re: What would you change about anime if you could?

      less fanservice and Ecchi in out of place moments. Who falls on top of another person and coincidentally into a compromising position? and also distinguishing Mature anime from the others with themes other than Ecchi.

      more stories with characters aged 20-30

      romance series need more substances, and to actually deal more with different relationship problems, and I'd also like to see more that's actually about the relationship, and not completely just about the build-up to it.

      Shounens as a whole are too repetitive for the length of their series, and they have too many plot holes and power inconsistencies, or Deus Ex Machinas just for the sake of plot convienience. And they always have the protagonist who is ditzy or air-headed in general, then suddenly serious and knowledgeable in combat... That's why I've stopped watching them

      some anime series are far too different from their Manga or Light novel sources. Filler scenes to bulk up the content for an episode, fine, but sometimes they outright change up the order of chapters in the episodes and if you're into both the Source and adaptation, it becomes harder to jump from A to B and vice versa

      Well the UK is always trying to harass Japan in one way or another. problem is we have a higher crime rate here than they do there so we look stupid and should probably look into our own laws and problems, then get back to them when we're more behaved than them. And the BBC of all outlets pitched in on the banned Omega Labyrinth Z game even though they kept quiet on the Jimmy Saville scandal despite it apparently going on for years, and they've also been accused plenty of times of having a Paedophile ring up top but they never attempt to address anybody about it all.
