Why do so many animu have fictional settings instead of real Japanese cities?
>>

Money.

One reason is that they were going for a generic town and just really wanted to just be representative of the general idea of a Japanese city instead (or didn't want to hear complaints that they had gotten it all wrong from actual people living from an actual city)

A lot of comics and animation in general does this, even in the west, think of Springfield and The Simpsons for example
>>
Easier to do whatever you want to do with it.

I don't know but I wonder why these girls doesn't have noses.
>>
>>139002055
noses aren't kawaii

>>139002244
Not being able to breath isn't moe either. Are they some sort of aliens or something?
>>
>>139000674
Fictional universe might need a fictional setting OP.

Some art styles just look better without noses.

A crapload of anime has fucking Tokyo as a setting, you fucking bitch.
>>
>>139000674

Venice replica on Mars, small historical German town in a beautiful scenery or a normal high school in the middle of Tokyo.

Which one sounds the most interesting?
>>
>>139002827
What about a normal high school in the middle of a historical German town with a Venetian district
>>
There are lots and lots of anime that take place in Tokyo or other major cities, and when an anime takes place in a small town it often helps with tourism to that area. So this is far from uncommon.
>>
>>139000674
Depends on the anime.

Some towns literally sponsor an anime so that their towns are featured in the show
>>
>>139003580
what a nice way to completely destroy your town's credibility as anything more than an otaku pilgrimage site
>>
>>139004073
yeah but while you're here buy some themed merch

But it's always fun to compare the anime and the photographs
>>
>>139002055
Because they aren't jews.

Is this the reason Rinne no Lagrange was "Kamogawa this, Kamogawa that"?
