Animation is generally harmful because it causes this niggling little unproductive flaw in offspring called "fascination". Parents hate that. They hate it more when their kid doesn't move onto bigger and better things in their lives.
Children should not have an excessive focus on fun and entertainment unless they are in war-torn or extremely poor countries, period.
People who watch things like shounen or seinen have perfect normal lifes, the real problem is those people who only watch cute high school girls doing cute things and just can't leave their own tiny little world of escapism.
Who the fuck cares about the society ? It can play a cruel joke with an individual though : in a lot of popular works MCs remain average and passive as fuck, yet they get into all sorts of adventures and cool situations.
What is more, the assertive characters who go for actually doing stuff are shown as being gag or uncool characters (think glasses guy from Nisekoi).
Obviously it's not purely anime's fault, yet it affirms the idea that you can remain an amoeba piece of shit yet life will still happen to you (it won't).
Sure, there are also MCs like >>137232705 pick related, yet they are too unrelatable to make a difference until is person is further into his life path.
No, but anime boards are. They bring together the disenfranchised who verify their own beliefs to each other: namely that the real world is suffering and 2D escapism is a convenient and somehow excusable way to bear it.
>>137233087 In contrast, Gene Starwind is really relatable. He's still a kid in more ways than one, but he's willing to learn from others and do the right thing despite fucking up multiple times. I know without a doubt that had I watched Outlaw Star when I was a kid Gene would have been my idol.
Shows like K-ON! and it's ilk are specifically designed to make you feel as if you're a part of a group of friends as substitute for the friends the otaku watcher is too afraid/lazy to go out and make themselves.
So yeah I'd say it's a silent killer, though I don't think it will ever cause any severe damage.
Anime always repeat the same formula, autistics Japs actually start to believe the real worlds works like that, with women being adorable, enjoying akwardness, with the same goals as a man
But then, when they face the real world, and see its not anime-ish like, they start to have a mental breakdown and isolate themselves from the world, because if real girls aren't what they expected from anime, real life is a lie
So, part of solving the problem would be creating more realistic anime/characters, personality wise, the designs can stay
Some of it, yeah. People with very limited social skills and who are afraid of the world out there, the people and especially women in it, try to seek solace in animation where cute innocent girls do mundane things and enjoy their lives. It's escapism
Basically moeshit is cancer which /a/ will never admit. It's no better than my little pony, I'd argue even worse
>>137236159 Because it would destroy the market profiting from useless weabs who breath anime
Its like why we don't have a cure for cancer/aids/alzheimer yet, we are so close, but the people who lives from keeping people alive through medication don't want a cure to be sold out because it would destroy their market
How not marrying and reproducing destructive for society? Marriage = Fail, depression, divorce with kids raised with single-mom or dad, leading to potential murderers and psycho Reproducing = 7 billions, half living poorly If anyting, not marrying and reproducing would be the best thing for everyone
>>137236250 >you Fuck off and educate yourself you pleb. Starving out the Japanese population while Soviets invade the mainland would have been better than ending the war in one go and bringing them under American control instead of Russian?
>>137236260 I can kinda understand why cancer and HIV haven't been cured though. No two cancers are the same so a blanket "cure" is almost impossible. For cancer, It's kinda like asking why there isn't a cure for viruses. There is no vaccine to prevent HIV just like there will never be one to prevent cancer. You need specific and individualized treatments for these kind of diseases.
>>137236446 They're not necessarily overcrowded, just living on top of each other. They need to invest in infrastructure and push more industry towards other parts of the country, not just Tokyo and Osaka. Nothing wrong with population decrease though, no. Means a higher quality of life can be achieved and birth rates will fix itself.
This whole birth rate thing is a meme anyways, only plebs that repeat everything the media tells them believe it.
>>137236494 I never did though, way to assume things and read falsely between the lines. Wouldn't expect more from a moefag who spends his days consuming shows that are made to appeal to the socially retarded lowest common denominator
>>137236312 Less children means less future adults. Less future adults means less future workers. Less future workers means less people working to support all the parasites and keep the society and the economy functioning. How comfortable do you think your retirement will be fifty years from now when for every single worker there are five people in retirement that workers need to support financially? Unless they come up with robots to do all the work for us, we'll probably all end up as Soylent Green one day.
>>137235921 They need a special hotline for their French foreign embassy, because their citizens go to Paris and are so devastated by the city not being some glorious, perfect European Wonderland ripped right from their delusions that they fucking break down and get hysterical.
>>137236446 One thing I could see being a problem is that less births means a larger percentage of the population are retired old people, which means less working age people to support them and a worse economy in general.
But it's true that they've had a ridiculous population for such a small territory for a while, they might be due for a completely natural drop in population before it stabilizes at something more sustainable in the long term.
>>137236114 >moeshit >escapism >using moeshit unironically And battle shounen isn't? Holy shit are you deluded as fuck. Anything with a different world or super powers is more escapism than CGDCT faggot
>>137236785 >they might be due for a completely natural drop in population Natural drop as in, constant growing population numbers that are related to boomers, are not normal. People believe boomer numbers are natural but they aren't.
>>137234870 Art is the same thing, fundamentally, as language. It's a method of transferring intent, thought, feeling, whatever, into an external medium. It's just as arbitrary as language, and whether or not it can be used to 'communicate' anything is redundant, for it's only for the sole satisfaction of the person who created it as a reflection of their idea.
>>137236613 >a moefag who spends his days consuming shows that are made to appeal to the socially retarded lowest common denominator >projecting this hard Makes sense coming from someone talking out of there ass about something they know nothing about
>>137236738 Yeah, that's why I said we will all end up as Soylent Green. I'm included in we, too. >>137236769 Pretty much the entire civilized world (and large parts of uncivilized world, e.g. Russia) has the same problem, birth rates below replacement level and population aging. NEETdom, otaku or anime have nothing to do with this, this situation is not unique to Japan. Germany has literally the same birth rates as Japan, and Germany's birth rates are inflated by brown people, meaning that the ethnic Germans probably breed even less than ethnic Japs.
Considering the price of BDs and the liklehood that people who buy anime merch are 99% likely to be working and watch anime to get away from the white collar job they have and whatever other pressures they have on them, especially things like mecha and CGDCT.
Maybe teenage targeted LNs and there adaptions might have a detrimental effect on kids that read them, but most anime does not, and probably helps people be less fucking depressed like books, film and manga.
/a/ and /v/ are filled with autistic manchilds but there is a clear difference in the way we deal with normalfagotry or at least it used to be. The fact this thread is getting so many bumps along with the /v/ comments is an indicator of how much the board as degraded.
>>137233092 Most are young, and will grow up to like normal things. Chanes of a grown up former Narutard getting laid > chances of a grown up moe lover getting laid There are the minority of adults who enjoy it, but every fanbase has its oddballs.
