Why are women creators in Japan so much more free to create whatever pleases them than women creators in the west?
Why hasn't EunYoung directed her own goddamn anime yet? I've been waiting forever.
Anime creators and fans are all shallow people who just want to masturbate to cute characters. The Western audience is more sophisticated than that, so Western female directors are usually auteurs with more complex views on society or sexuality.
Bullshit of the year.
50 shades of grey is not good. The story is poorly written and the dialogue is retarded. The only reason it is even "popular" is because women use it as masturbation material.
This is were you're going to pretend /a/ isn't a congregation of men using 2d girls as masturbation material right while pretending it's something more than that, right?
Let me laugh preemptively at your face.
No, I am in no way holding 50 shades of grey in a higher regard than anime that is obvious harem/echi shit. I am just stating objectively that 50 shades of grey is not an example of something "good" that western female content creators have made. Anime shows whose only focus is "HEY LOOK AT THAT GIRL'S PANTIES" are probably even worse than 50 shades of gray.
>The Western audience is more sophisticated than that
No, they just pretend to be above it, but every time marvel or the transformers guy shits out their next turd, everyone waits in line for their serving.
Western women probably have the same level of freedom but they're just not aware because the comic industry became very male-oriented in the 1950s (with those censorship laws that cemented superhero characters into American comics) and it's been that way since
Also most of their art is webcomics/tumblr-tier garbage most of the time these days, the good ones usually just do traditional gallery work
It depends on the medium. Manga for example probably has more women creators than western comics. But looking at the big picture across all media, there probably isn't any difference in number or freedom of women creators between the west and Japan.
