What are the differences between Western and Japanese audiences in terms of what they enjoy?
>>
It seems like western prefer action.
>>
Nips prefer garbage
>>
Which western audience are we talking about here? Casuals or the weebs?

Casual = Cool, Edgy, Action, Explosion and "Epic" Battles

Weeaboo = Cute, Moe, SoL, Healing and Fanservice
>>
Japan = shit taste
West = even worse taste
>>
The West seems to like their PLOT and CHARACTERS a little too much.
>>
>>152893774
Japan = Cute Girls Doing Cute Things

Western = Winter Is Coming xD

Watched 1ep of GoT and my fucking God it is booring and bad
Better stay with my chinese cartoon.
>>
Japs are Confucian so people doing retarded ass shit for the sake of their family is smiled upon

Westerners are individualistic

Japs believe in Yamato Damashii so what westerners see as "asspulls" makes perfect sense to Nips

Japanese folk see sex as just another fact of life, westerners see sex as inherently polluting

Japs like effeminate guys, westerners like manly guys

Japs think gay people are hilarious in the same way retards & cripples are hilarious, westerners hyperbolically believe either gays are evil or BRAVE

Japs think women belong in the kitchen, westerners love their stronk independent womyn who don't need no man

Japs hate drugs and anyone who uses them, westerners are mostly "live and let live"

Suicide is a perfectly fine way to regain honor in Japland, this view hasn't existed in the West since Rome

Japs think recklessly fighting due to pride even risking death is good, westerners think you should live to fight another day

Japs think cousin marriage is quaint, westerners abhor inbreeding

Japs think child abuse is a private matter, westerners think the child should be protected at all costs

Japs think kissing is some sort of magical act of ultimate intimacy, westerners just see it as a somewhat more intimate gesture

Pic related.

You're right though. I gave up on the show when Jaime raped Cersei.
>>
>>152893774
Not much. the only real difference is that the japanese have an otaku market while the west does not.
>>
>>152894758
But it was not rape.

Also, the series is fun if you like dark fantasy (it's not good, but it's what we have in live action).

You need some classic western fantasy/science fantasy in your life. Try Robert E. Howard, Lovecraft, Glen Cook, Gene Wolfe, the John Carter series... trust me man.

>>152894254
Reading through this and just looming over the fact how chinese cartoons ate my brain.
>>
It's interesting to me that the japanese abhor drugs, yet smoking and drinking seem so widespread.

>>152894254
>Japanese folk see sex as just another fact of life
Not part of their life, thats for sure.
>>
>>152893774

Japs don't notice ecchi or incest because they sexualize everything and have gotten used to it, while westerners view violence the same way.

Both audiences see the other side as standing out, hence the sadism-porn in japanese pop culture and the exaggerated focus on minor sexual references in the west (like censoring a 1 sec panty shot and cropping away a pair of bouncing boobs, despite this being normal physiology).

Western prefers intelligent writing
Japanese prefer virgin male fantasies
>>
>>152897989
Name 3 TV channels that display intelligent writing

>>152897989
>intelligent writing
Do you mean stories so complex even the writer doesn't understand it and obviously must have a deeper meaning because it's "muh" art?

Normal japanese audiences: kid stuff like Doraemon and Sazae-san. Shonen like One Piece and Dragon Ball.
Otaku: cute girls and idols
Western audience: Either shonen and stuff SAO or "mature" anime that pander to western audience like GITS or Cowboy Bebop
>>
>>152898115
I have problem naming even one
>>
Does anyone actually unironically think nips care what westerners enjoy?
>>
>>152898405
Doesn't mean they have to make utterly boring and uninteresting shows.
