>>138406560 Dont know honestly. Been watching anime for 4 years and no matter how hard I try I always find shounen to be bland with no substance. I find that most people who like it dont really like anime and just follow one series to death.
It's not about the action. It's about knowing where you're going. Not forgetting where you started. It's about having the courage to fail. Not breaking when you are broken. Taking everything you have been given.
And making something better. It's about work before glory. And what's inside of you. It's doing what they say you can't. It's not about the action. It's about being who you were born to be.
>>138406738 Pretty much this. Written for children by peoples inner-child. Not a lot of thought put into them. Just a goal. A goal is being a long epic story to inspire kids across nations to strive for more, be better than what they are, always seek their passion and gain strength. It's an easy and fun idea to get behind, and part of the idea is for the story to go on as long as possible to entertain as many new children as possible and make as much money for the publishers/animators/authors as possible.
>>138407026 That's like saying people don't understand a series if they have a waifu from it, god forbid people derive enjoyment from their feelings from characters. Battle shounen is fucking simplistic, it's extremely easy to understand and generally so lacking in substance that it makes sense if shipping takes precedence over contemplating the depth of the power of friendship. Though the fact that friendship is so important makes it even more logical to focus on understanding the relationships between characters.
>>138406975 >>138407027 I like how a key feature of FMA is that people who are dead should remain dead. If there is one thing that pisses me off the most in most shounen, its that character dies then comes back 10-20 episodes later by some bullshit. Once death means nothing I stop caring about who wins a fight and the show becomes boring.
Be specific OP. Shonen can range from One Piece to To-love Ru.
I mean, unless you're talking about battle manga of course. Of course you can't be dumb enough to think that Shounen means battle manga right? That'd be as dumb as using Shonen/Shoujo/Seinen as a genre classifier.
Of course not. No one who goes here would be so ignorant about the medium. Unless you're a retard of course. But that can't be the case right?
>>138407272 Of course he is and we all know it, but there's always people who get really over excited and smug about dropping their slightly higher than entry level knowledge about the distinction between shounen and battle shounen. It doesn't contribute to discussion, but at least they can pat themselves on the back for being such an anime pro.
