Hi /adv/, it's been a long time. I've gotten into a pretty serious relationship now. Everything is sunshine and daisies, except in one small area of our lives. She's got this impression that all anime-esque depictions of women are sexualized to a pornographic degree and becomes extraordinarily aggressive when she's exposed to them. This, despite growing up on Sailor Moon and Inuyasha.

This has become increasingly apparent because we play Fire Emblem: Heroes together and every time new characters are released she explodes over how their "pussies are hanging out" and all that. Now certainly some designs are pretty out there, and I was the first dude in my circle of friends to complain about anachronistic swimwear, but it's getting out of hand. I want to introduce her to more weeby things that I like (TTGL, Kill la Kill, etc, I'd never dream of sharing that with her even though I appreciate them and believe they can be appreciated without whipping your dick out), but I worry she'll get caught up over sexy character designs and shit.

What do I do?

Of her mom agianst this kind of shit too?

Her mom watches Sailor Moon Crystal with her.

ask yourself: is it really worth being in such a serious relationship with someone who gets mad about what amounts to literally a fantasy?

that level of insecurity is a massive red flag and I think you already know this. I think you need to drop this girl, and I think deep down you know you need to drop this girl but you don't want to do it because its a band-aid you don't want to tear off, probably in more ways than one.

Newsflash: they kinda are you fucking weeb. She shouldn't be overreacting tho. Tell her if she doesn't like it to just not look at it, i.e. Don't watch anime you nob.

I mean she's 21, (and I'm 26) I figure there's still time to shake off some of that hate she's cultivated for whatever reason. She's a good woman otherwise who is work driven enough to follow me across the US while I work on my PhD.

The issue is that she plays these games or engages this media to share something with me, gets offended, then makes blanket accusations about its producers and consumers. This forces me to chose between things like watching One Punch Man in secret or hearing her put it in the same category as Kiss x Sis as she curses everyone who ever watched it.

Ummm... Just stop fucking watching anime? If you guys aren't 14 years old this is really sad.

This is true for 99.9% of anime

It's 2017 though. Ghost in the Shell just got adapted into a Hollywood movie.

This

normies don't watch anime unless it's AoT or Dragon Ball, and no one watches Dragon Ball Super

Can anyone offer any advice that doesn't recommend removing anime from my life? I've got several worldbuilding projects that draw lots of inspiration from sources like the Tales series, other tropey things. Creatively, anime is just a part of my expression. And reasonably it should be hers too, since she grew up with it.

Not everyone who watches KonoSuba owns a dakimakura and furiously circlejerks alongside a congregation of neckbeards.

I'd say show her cooler anime/ animation, educate her on directors and artists like Satoshi Kon, show her Miyazaki, if she still projects her insecurities onto you/anime consider suggesting therapy.
>>
Show her stuff that isn't like that, or where the sexualized woman is a strong beautiful woman who don't need no man.
Most of the Gundams barring G aren't bad. I don't think Big-O is either.
Shit, watch Mushi-shi or something like that, it's THE MOST innocent anime ever.

Believe it or not, I managed to watch all of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Fate/Zero, and Fate/stay night - Unlimited Blade Works. I was extremely worried about the last one, but the interest sparked by Fate/Zero was enough to carry her through the more fan service laden UBW. In the absence of any good recommendations we started watching Avatar: the Last Airbender because it has a lot of what I like. Worldbuilding, interesting use of tropes, etc. The thing is, as we get deeper into that that there will be more in-your-face fanservice.

I'll definitely try to swing through Gundam, Big-O and Mushi-shi though. I've actually seen a lot of Gundam, as well as both of the other two. I'm more worried about things like Hayate the Combat Butler, or other weebier things where gag tits might just pop in for cheap laughs.

>>18517053
Make her watch memories and monster, both have non-existent fan-service .
>>
>people on 4chan telling other people to stop watching anime
lul

Maybe your girlfriend is just closed-minded
