Does Japan have something against showing expecting mothers?
Why are pregnant women a rare sight in anime?
Because pregnancy in itself, is fucking disgusting.
Especially the act of giving birth. It's best if they never show it.
Why is this an issue? Next you'll be complaining it's a cultural thing to not show sweater vests.
Frankly it's not important. Pregnant women can't do action movies, so why would anime (known for action and kids shit) show someone clashing with the themes.
Pregnant women make most people feel slightly uncomfortable. They are delicate and we naturally pick up on that and feel we need to be careful around them. It's one of those primal things like having a hard time not staring at wide hips and big tits on women. Plus, pregnant women act really weird and emotional because they're hopped up on hormones. I drove across a city to get fucking Arby's for my pregnant sister one time because she was dead-set on eating some, and then the bitch didn't even eat the whole thing because she started feeling queasy because of the weird stuff pregnancy does to their appetites. Pregnant women are crazy.
Pregnancy is used commonly as a stock cliche of either the 'miracle of life' teaching moment or some flashback to tragedy.
It's nice when something different shows up. Sket dance had a Precure Parody in the show that had a pregnant magical girl.
An entire series about a pregnant woman trying to get sex is proof that manga > anime.
Of course they can. A billion people already do.
That is, literally, heresy onii-chan.
I got mad because the asshole husband doesn't fuck his wife because her being pregnant turns him off or some shit. Most of the story is about her being so desperate for his dick and he refuses to give it to her because he's a pathetic otaku faggot.
>being turned off by your pregnant wife
I don't fucking understand
Being in a relationship means doing things you don't want to do. Especially when your poor pregnant wife is super desperate for sex to the point that she's getting depressed and angry.
Well to be honest as a guy who has a preg fetish I find the act of fucking for a child to be incredibly arousing as well as the pregnant form being a display of girl being formally conquered, however, if it were with my own child then it loose attraction because to me it's used goods and I lose interest in pursuing a vigorous sex life with this woman who is now a mother.
Come on man do you want me to do what this >>138613115 anon said and have a complete and emotionless relationship with a woman I no longer find attractive. There is a difference between taking one for the team and forcing sex into a relationship.
I'd buy it and proudly display it absolutely nowhere.
In all seriousness though, it's this. Pregnancy is kind of a major event and you can't just toss it in unless it helps advance the story. Otherwise you're just pandering to a niche fetish.
Yeah, of all the anime I've watched, I've yet to see one series that would have been aided by pregnancy/added emphasis on pregnancy... except one.
Not to say there couldn't be a pregnancy-focused show/series, but it'd have to be a primary focus for it rather than something just thrown in on the side. Probably a slice of life series, or continuation of a prior-existing series (the new Tenchi, anyone?)
Not pure enough to be a regular female character, but not yet motherly enough to fill the role of a parent either. They're just stuck between two roles and can't do either of them properly.
Shame, because stuff like that pic get my dick rock fucking hard.
