What shows would you recommend to O'Reily?

I know the pokemon seizure,the girl with an axe,something illegal
>>
Pokeymans are evil

I know Pokemon got a lot of heat for a while for various retarded reasons.

Angel Cop and Magi.

Honestly? Probably Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt.

Though he has bigger issues to talk about than Japanese anime that doesn't even get on American TV.
>>
>>120894992
Space Battleship Yamato. I want to see his reaction.
>>
>>120894992
grave of the fireflies, in order to force him to sympathize with terrorists for once

I had an ultraconservative uncle that watched O'Reilly like gospel. He absolutely loved the Metal Gear Solid games. Something similar in anime form maybe.

Why? The children deserved it for disrespecting their elders who worked hard to gain their positions and were under no obligation to take care of them.

Kill la Kill

He'd love it

Funny enough, I just finished watching it. I would recommend this to anybody who has to report on politics, just because they can take it anyway they want.

Seriously though, why did they leave? They had everything going for them, food and shelter.

By national, you mean American? If so, probably only Pokemon - due to the cards and video games though mostly.

Pokemon

Stupidity and pride. The author freely admits he thinks the kids were in the wrong, and it's a semi-autobiographical story.
>>
>>120894992
Boku no Pico
>>
>>120895238
MGS is pretty pro America, so I can see why.
Or at least, pro American ideals.
>>
>>120895572
MGS is also one of those sorts of games where you could easily take away whichever message you wanted if you looked at it with a big enough bias. the viewer can decide on what's done straight and what was parody, etc.
>>
>>120895530
Pretty sure that's the only anime that got national coverage, but I remember my local news doing a segment on some manga issues because they showed a girl's panties and boobs. Some parents probably kicked up a storm

True.

>Bill O'reilly will die in your lifetime

>>120895639
Yeah, outside of Pokemon (which was hardly about the anime side of it), I only think anime will get thrown in the generic perverted or violent pool for the monthly "think of the children" story on the news.

Actually, I'm curious if anyone knows any anime controversies in Japan?

LOGH. If /pol/ likes it, he would too.
>>
>>120894881
>>120895530
There was an episode of pokemon that caused mass epileptic seizures in japan
>>
>>120895729
Kokoro connect
>>
>>120895634
Based kojima
damn shame 2 was his last passion game
>>120895729
You have the classic pokemon one where set off ADHD kids
then you have kokoro connect that bullied one VA and 2ch went for blood since bullying is taboo on nipland
>>
>>120895729
Only thing I can think of are the anime cancelled due to national events. IIRC of Higurashi was delayed because of a similar violent thing happening. Nice Boat too.

But that's kind of the reverse situation.
>>
>>120894992
You need something with a narcissistic main character that he can insert into, either of his characters from Those Who Trespass. I'd actually suggest Death Note if Light had won.
>>
>>120895813
I'm pretty sure all his MGS games are passion games.
Have you seen his interviews for MGS5?
He looks excited as hell.
>>
>>120895790
Kare Kano too.

Although those are somewhat more just production issues that probably never made the mainstream news.
>>
>>120895729
People where getting hurt trying to recreate the Kill Me Baby dance.
PTAs for years were trying to get rid of Gintama.
>>
>>120895813
It was epileptic kids, not ADHD.

FUCK IT! FUCKING THING DOESN'T WORK!

>>120895887
Gintama? Why?
>>
>>120895729
It's nice how Japan doesn't really get big controversies from entertainment unless it actually harms someone like the Pokemon incident.
>>
>>120895953
subject matter inappropriate for young minds or some shit, you know, usual PTA stuff. Also teachers would complain because the series got so popular they found their students would put the wrong name of the historical characters on history tests.

Also gintama is close to kintama, which means testicles. Of course someone's gonna complain.
>>
>>120896129
PTA in Japan are pretty insane. I heard a story of them combing the streets of Japan on a Saturday of a 3 day weekend at 7PM urging kids to go home. If the kids were with their parents they'd tell the parents that "That's not okay", basically. I'd hate to go to school in Japan.
>>
>>120896129
Don't forget the infamous Renho arc.
>>
>>120894992
Any anime that has a good concept on tides, and how they work.
>>
That episode of Pokemon that gave kids seizures

Mahouka. Unlike Obama, onii-sama sure knows how to deal with terrorists; and like O'Reilly, has old school morals and firmly believes in meritocracy.
>>
>>120895729
There's that Otaku Murderer case. The Genshiken mangaka mentioned it as a traumaticizing experience for already stigmatized otaku culture.

In the past couple of years, Japan has been cracking down harder on P2P sharing, and convictions for uploaders tend to get on evening news.

That wasn't even close to national in japan, it was 23 guys on the internet.

Not technically Anime, but I remember the RapeLay thing exploding a few years ago. It caused Illusion to pull it from their library and refuse to acknowledge its existence anymore.

I recall a story or three about kids getting in trouble at school for bringing those replica Death Note notebooks to school and filling in names.

This guy is looking much deeper into something that doesn't need to be looked into much, like an anon thinking Eva is 3DEEP5U. This is great.

No one cares about your random opinions anon.

I don't care that no one cares that I made a comparison.

When Mr. Anime murdered his whole family MSNBC was vocal about pointing out one the shows he had in his bedroom was Slayers. They never bothered to find out it was a children's show.

He was watching Slayers.
