Women are, in general, much better at writing human relationships. Men are better at stuff like technical worldbuilding. That's why they tend to write for different genres.

I just wish we could get the best of both worlds.
It's been done for western media many times, whereas there's only a handful of anime that does it well.

Because all Japanese males are perverts who don't care about human interaction just braindead hentai and action.

>>145706073
Maybe a male-female duo would be able to make something like that work.
>>
>>145705574
Because female writers know how to write female characters.

Honestly though the MC in Orange is pretty frustrating in the beginning with how stupid she was. The last couple episodes have been pretty cathartic though.

Most of my favorite authors are female, they include some of my most loved series.
But men write the philosophies, classics, and challenge ideas.
Women make good stories. Men lack structure in favor of pushing concept.

I don't know, it may be that they are more interested in romance so the best of them will write believable romance.

That being said, anime has shit writing and is nothing compared to literature, and in Japan I prefer male authors over female.

Even ugly girls are bound to get laid at some point in their lives, thus they can write romance based on their actual experience.

The male authors who write romance LN/manga these days are the forever alone DT types who only know how to write the shitty generic harem pandering that they grew up reading.

>>145705574
You're basically wrong about believable human interaction. Which isn't a surprise because you're a nerd on the internet all day who lives in a society where the idea of human interaction comes from a toxic blend of therapeutic reductionism and postmodern social studies. Both fields are of course dominated by women.

Most male written anime is romantic. Which to your castrated materialist brain means unbelievable characters.

>Is there something about women that make them be able to understand both sexes, men can't understand women?
Probably

You'd have to ask a woman for an actual answer though, not me.
>>
>>145710349
I'd rather not. Regardless of any real answer, the woman I ask would be encouraged to agree. It's impossible for her to know just what is going inside my head, just the same as in hers. It gives women power to keep up the image of mystery and natural empathy.
>>
>>145710226
The notion that men can't understand women is tiresome. The only thing there is to figure out is that women are irrational sometimes, because chemicals, and that is obviously inherently unpredictable. There is literally nothing else about them that can't be understood.
>>
>>145710226
>>145710642
It's not that men don't understand women when it comes to writing anime, it's just that they purposefully ignore realistic traits in order to pander to otaku virgins in order to create wish fulfillment waifu bait.

>>
>>145710642
Yeah, the joke you see in movies, tv, etc. always seems to be that women are some mysterious, incomprehensible creatures that men will never figure out and men are incredibly simple-minded and easy to understand.

But I feel like it's almost the complete opposite in reality.

Maybe it's because we have all this feminism nowadays that forces men to take women into consideration at all times, but we don't really have anything that forces women to take men into consideration ever.
>>
>>145710226
Women tend to be more empathetic since they're raised to prioritize other people/have a mothering urge. Men are usually raised to think more about themselves, which is why they're usually the ones in the industry who say "fuck it" and throw realism to the wind in favor of what makes their dick hard. Both have their charms.

>Women are more capable of feeling empathy.

t. women
>>
>>145710642
The notion that women are particularly emotional and irrational is just as tired and stereotypical. Men are statistically more likely to engage in emotionally driven behaviour (crimes of passion, substance abuse, reckless driving, risk taking stunts, actually going through with suicide, getting into fights, etc). The main difference is that women are forgiven for being open with their emotions and always have more of a support system than men, so they can let it all out without worrying while men can't afford to do so.
>>
>>145711418
>>145711527
Honey and Clover is shit, though.
>>
>>145711954
its actually in their nature tho. Why is the mother always portrayed as the emotional support of the family? Because it is in their nature to be one. It is actually understandable. Observe why 3rd wave feminist writers are shit. Its because they want to go away from the actual nature of themselves; to be caring

I was going to say you are just bullshitting, but some of my favorite interactions in anime, especially in rom coms, are written by women. Kimi Ni Todoke, toradora, tonari kaibutsu kun. I'd say it's mostly coincidence, but I'm sure there is some reason buts it's not "jap men are sheltered autists"

Not for lack of trying. GoT has a functioning central bank with inflationary policies, run by Venetian Jews.

Men are statistically more likely to engage in emotionally driven behaviour (crimes of passion, substance abuse, reckless driving, risk taking stunts, actually going through with suicide, getting into fights, etc).

/a/ will probably deny this, but it is actually correct. In fact, that's generally the reason that men have shorter lifespans than women on average. Rather than disease or other natural factors, they're just more likely to do something emotionally driven that results in lethal harm to themselves.

Actually, all the angry responses to the notion that women are generally more empathetic is a pretty good indicator of this. Because males are socialized to be proud, even objectively true statements such as these get taken like personal attacks.

Actually, research says that "letting out your rage" basically just leads to more rage.
>>
>>145712139
But they aren't particularly caring, or at least not any more than men. They are more nurturing towards their family, true enough, but that doesn't make you any better at understanding others, especially if their mode of thinking is very different from yours. >>145711973 got it right, plus they are wired to be more social in general. However, being social doesn't automatically prevent you from being a self-centered asshole; it just means you're better at manipulation.
>>
>>145712921
That's why the right approach is to solve and address your issues instead of just raging.

I dropped the manga after a few chapters but does the main girl still only read one line of her letter per chapter instead of reading it entirely?
Does the letter also describe perfectly like weather or what Xfriend or Yfriend ate on a day precisely in the anime? even though the letter was written 10 years later.

Dropped it because of these retarded writings.
