The indigenous people of Latin America are basically Asian, so...
>>
>>154803900
We got faithfull distribution and translations for over a decade.
Not like murricans with their own version of a censored footage.

Basically, we got quality over quantity.

All while being on prime time in TV.

Everything that gets licensed for sale outside of eastern asian, always gets a french release, sometimes before all the other non-asian countries.

Also, french animation is inspired by anime.

They speak in tongues or whatever, and they don't have anyone with talent among any of their nations to make their own media that people would actually want to watch, so everything needs to be dubbed or subbed. Anime and cartoons are some of the easier things to dub. Live action is a motherfucker to dub in a believable fashion.

america got shafted hard
anything we got was cut down if it was on TV, like it was all for kids because cartoons!
we didn't get stuff like manga for a good while, probably 1997 or so.

its why mexico has the hardest boner for saint seiya. even the fucking PS4 game got a fucking mexidub with the OG cast. when was the last time anyone cared to give mexican dubs ANY favor?

No local cartoons to compete against. Local TV stations could show either american or japanese cartoons. The japanese cartoons with their long stories with a lot of melodrama and plot twists are more popular in latín american market over the episodic content where every episode doesnt matter at all from american cartoons. The Simpsons was the most popular american cartoon because it has a plot.
SoL anime is not popular in latin america.

Tl.dr version: anime is 2d telenovelas
>>
>>154805754
Zelda Breath of the wild got Mexican dub
>>
>>154804850

Correct.

Relative violent/sexual shit was in public TV at prime times.

As far as I remember the only thing that was censored were exposed breasts from stuff like Ranma and even then the censorship was kinda shitty and some stuff still went to air.

Not to mention the god tier dubbing faithful to the originals.

Unsurprisingly some shit lately has been translated from the castrated American versions making them fairly unpopular for obvious reasons.

There were some scenes that were removed (no black bars) but as I said, they were small, irrelevant and at some point the censors stopped giving a fuck and things just went by.
>>
>>154804850

The redubs from american versions where usually censored, too. Sakura Taisen had some awfully obvius cus made here and there.

>Why is Anime and Manga so popular in Latin America?
Because it started airing in public television since the 70s.
One of the first regions in the West, along with France, Italy and Spain.
Why the early adoption? Not sure.
>>
>>154806694
My guess is that they were cheaper licenses since the japanese always seemed to consider exports as just a little extra yen when it comes to anime. And wholesone yet dramatic and engaging shit like the world masterpiece series weren't too foreign.
>>
>>154803900
So, is it safe to be a weeb in Mexico? Do you need a higher power level to be considered a weirdo.

you can even talk about dbz with the dude who drives the bus so, yeah
>>
>>154803900
They were telenovelas for kids and young adults. Also even grandparents watched stuff like speed racer so you could enjoy some shows with your family. Sure if you show them stuff like Madoka or an Izekai series they'd slap you but they can endure old school mechas and shonen.
>>

It's kind of like Pokemon Go.

No, it's true, they are just better than the mexican version.
>>
>>154806836
Only some shows get a pass in a casual conversation. Mainly 90's shit. And that also goes for non chinese cartoons. You'd get still end up in a weaboo circle if you watch modern anime, like this:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d46RacdV_RU

But nodoby gives a shit in college so it's fine. Don't try to hide your fetishes.

That's how happened in Europe too.

Just don't expect to find anyone with decent powerlevel, the best you will find is shonen and sports fags.

>most people I've talked about anime in the past seem to have a loose bolt (people with penchant for violence - the kind that carry knives in school, druggies) and they don't even have a decent powerlevel, they were into shonen like Death Note, Bleach, FMA.. I reckon they were probably watching JoJo and Drifters recently
>normal people immediately jump to conclusions; most often "detski" - children's cartoons, or "hentai shit" - it's either one or the other

Will I never find somebody relatively normal who likes things like New Game and Non Non Biyori? God, why wasn't I born in Mexico? At least people are somewhat accepting there.

Because they had less US instigated anti-japanese propaganda than a lot of other countries.

I was like 5 or 6 years old when they aired Ranma 1/2 and some o f the episodes had no censorship at all. Keep in mind that it was treated as a cartoon and it would begin right after a looney toons episode ended.

It's probably as popular as in any other place, but the average powerlevel that most people are willing to show is higher, so it seems more popular.

I guess when we enter puberty we start looking at girls sexually and since the first ones we see wear uniform we keep the good memories and associate with it.
At least that's my case.
