>>82531692
People are insecure as fuck who are desperate to try and validate their children's cartoons. If you like a cartoon, just own up and like it, you don't need to justify it unless you're afraid of being judged about it.

This goes for anyone who tries to "justify" watching Adventure Time, old Powerpuff Girls, Steven Universe, My Little Pony, Gravity Falls, Avatar, Disney-Pixar films, How to Train Your Dragon, and fucking whatever. You'll seem more confident if you just admit to liking shit because who cares if someone laughs, laugh aggressively in their face back, idiot.

Vulgar language is the only time I'm surprised. Like when I heard "hell" in Ratatoullie and Cloudy Meatballs, because those are almost always censored. But those were feature films, I don't think I've ever heard hell in a TV cartoon in decades (Or possibly ever). You could almost count all the instances of a cartoon saying a curse word on one hand. I only vaguely remember Ren & Stimpy getting away with saying "crap".

Why can /co/ not accept that anime can get away with a lot more? It's not like that means cartoons are for shit or something, people just view them as being for children so they can't get near some of the shit anime does.

>>82534809
Oh sure anime shows violence and they're weirdos but if someone in England complains about Watership Down you'll go "Oh they're just being pansies, KIDS THESE DAYS NEED TO SEE THIS".

when it comes from one extreme in a country to another countries extreme you do have it both ways. Because the limitation for another country is not the same standard for every country. For instance, their age of consent is 13.
To some countries that's pretty fucked up.

>I think everyone here accepts anime can get away with a lot more.

Japanese creators are generally just given more creative independence because they have a much bigger market with many niches to exploit.

In America there's like 3 demographics for cartoons:

>Little babies exclusively
>young kids
>males: 18-35

The bottom two sometimes blend together too. You have to hit it off with one of those demos or your shit gets canceled.

It's more than just demographics, Japanese society in general is more open to things that would be considered weird or offensive in the west, just watch some Japanese shows or video games

Even if they are kids shows, a difference in what cultures think kids should see doesn't make one or the other superior, and shooting American shows down because the animes did it "better" is silly

They are. Not sure why anyone is even questioning that.

Because even getting past the mental barrier of differences in censorship, they don't seem like shows that are made for kids. I'm sure kids watch them, but they don't strike me as the target demographic.

They air during children slots and their manga are all published in magazines who's children are the main target demographic.

Validation. People need to show everyone else that they aren't watching something made for a different age group.

>>82533625
>Why do movies get so much more leeway

Movies usually make some effort not only to entertain the kids, but also the parents that are bringing the kids to see it. Make it semi enjoyable for them and they'll suggest other parents take their kids. If it's a complete chore to sit through, then they'll suggest to other parents that they take their kids to see something else. Execs want that positive word of mouth, but are a little more wary of outright adult oriented animation, which they don't think has as large an audience.

TV, on the other hand, is more likely to be watched by unsupervised youth. It doesn't need to appeal to adults. In fact, it doesn't really need to because jokes that go over the kids' heads are pretty much useless. The less childish stuff you see are the remaining shreds of dignity and love for animation that the folks making it were able to get past execs who are more interested in squeezing more money out of advertisers than anything else.

But TV animation for adults has really grown since the Simpsons, and now you don't need to twist an exec's arm nearly as much when trying to pitch an adult oriented animated comedy, even in a proposed prime time spot. Action/drama/romance/etc? Still risky.

Can people stop doing this? It's like they're completely unaware that Japan has its own social taboos that keep them from showing and doing things as well that would make them seem close minded from a western perspective. Their censored porn, for example.
>>
>>82535103
>For instance, their age of consent is 13.
Not really. The constitution says 13, but each prefecture has laws that are generally more restrictive. 16-18 is the real limit.
>>
>>82537366
The target audiences aren't different. The entire point is that in the west some "meh" stuff appears in cartoons and people go "Wow that's for adults! I'm mature!" while Japan has always done it all the time.
Except with smoking.

>>82534896
I'm not sure if you realize this, but most anime is considered to be for children, too. Yes, even in Japan. And the adults who like anime are considered in their homeland to be massive manchildren, much like anyone who watches cartoons in the west.

Manga, on the other hand, is more of a general-purpose medium.

I think you're just an idiot anon, there's absolutely no way to interpret the "I don't think so" line other than the intended meaning behind the joke. The only subtlety is that there was pretty much no way kids watching it would get it.

Yes, that's the point. So are the western examples.

Anyway, the thing about Japan is that when they disagree with something on a moral level, they don't make this huge outcry or turn it into a big crusade. So networks are willing to let things through because they're not as afraid of angry stay-at-home moms waging social media wars, and people don't get stuck in a feedback loop where they think that they're supposed to get upset.

>>82539717
And yet, a lot of them probably wouldn't have gotten the chance had 4kids not proved there's a market for it. It's the old Robotech paradox again.

Aimed at different demographics. most of the shit on daytime CN/nick has to okay for kids from around 7 years old and up while most of the shonen battle anime that were posted here are aimed at shithead 13-14 year old boys.

Japan tends to have less stupid restrictions on kid's media but you're not going to see two women rubbing their massive tits together on something like digimon.
>>
>>82540252
The comparison is being made because they're both aimed at the same age group, but in one case people lose their shit and in another no one bats an eye.

I watched that TMNT recently and it was weird. Characters could be shown dying through gun shots, lasers, explosions, decomposition, and high falls, but getting stabbed or eaten was shown off screen. Yet, when people *did* get stabbed or eaten, they still had gore-y sound effects.

Why did 4kids try so hard to censor their anime but not their own show?
>>
>>82532068
There was the canadian yak's men song in R&S in which the word "hell" was censored, but it was so obvious what it was supposed to be, and you you could even see it in the sing-along subtitles, since it was just crossed over. In the same episode you can also see a dimembered intestine and an eyeball, with a little bit of blood. That was also the last episode under John K's directing, so he probably did it because he had nothing to lose.
>>
>>82535353
That's only true when you're talking about animation. The sexual and violent content in live action Western media is often very extreme (e.g. graphic rape and torture scenes), even on television. Japanese TV has much more strict broadcast standards. The kind of shit you see in HBO shows would never fly there.

>>82538800
Most anime in Japan is now late night anime, i.e. not aimed at children at all, and I'm not sure if there's ever been as much of a stigma against adult anime in Japan as Westerners keep claiming there is. I've never seen any evidence for it.

4Kids started bringing over anime at a point in time when anime had a really bad reputation for being needlessly violent and sexual. This is partly what inspired the switch from calling "Japanimation" to calling it "Anime". "Japanimation" had a bad reputation, but "Anime" was something "New and different."

They had a heavy hand in censorship because they wanted to dodge ANY controversy and appeal to the broadest range of children possible.

Yeah yeah yeah. People always have this kind of flabbergasted reaction, like "what the fuck is this crazy nigger saying," but then at the end they realize they can't actually demonstrate that pandering exists.

>>82547933

Well what kind of proof would you require? It's more of a common sense assumption that a lot of the animators who work on these shows are otaku, so naturally they would make things which appeal to their own sensibilities.

The studio in question has basically never produced any anime, and he was simply incorrect anyway given that there were plenty of other studios making "non-otaku" anime.

So you're saying he was lying? Based on what?
>>
>>82549782
The point of the image is that animator was an otaku, too. I'm sure he loves drawing but you're completely missing the point. I don't mind fanservice but a shit-ton of the anime they produce is all for otaku so they can buy the expensive BDs and figures and so on. The fact it's so isolated to Japan isn't just because it's so expensive, it's because only otaku would spend so much money on it.

How does any of this prove the existence or prevalence of pandering?

The same holds true for anime.

Nope. Again, panders all the time and animation isn't fucking cheap which was my point.

No. Because I'm not saying it for the sake of, "Wow this makes no sense haha it's so out there!!!" I'm saying it because it has the same kind of faux-philosophical up-its-own-ass navelgazing and abstractions where people mistake high for high-minded. Mostly talking about Xylophone here.

>It's obvious so it doesn't need to be said.
Yeah, it always is. People can't actually come up with any evidence, they just say it's "obvious" because "everyone knows" that anime panders to otaku.

>Nope.
Why do you think it isn't true? Because "obviously" it isn't. "Everyone knows" it isn't. No need to even check.

"Serious," non-stereotypical shows like Joker Game, Death Parade, Concrete Revolutio, Shouwa Genroku, Erased, Ping Pong, Sakurako-san, Zankyou no Terror and Perfect Insider air all the time. Along with sports shows (e.g. Baby Steps), action shows (Kabaneri), mecha shows (Kuromukuro), ordinary comedies (Kyoukai no Rinne), and so on. And almost nobody in the West ever watches them. Almost nobody knows they exist. Because almost nobody in the West watches anime to any significant degree, they just talk about it as if they did.

Try watching more anime.

You have no proof. Nobody has any proof.

This whole idea of pandering is based on a misconception of how things work in Japan. People assume that fans and creators are different groups of people in Japan, which is completely false.

You've already indicated that you don't know anything about anime and this just shows it even more.

"Otaku" is a somewhat nebulous and frequently misunderstood concept anyway. You may think you know exactly what you're talking about when you say something is for "otaku," but you actually don't. Those OVAs you've watched were almost certainly made by and for otaku, and you didn't even realize it.

>You think blockbusters aren't made to be as average as possible so they can make as much money as possible?
We aren't talking about blockbusters. Late night anime is for niche audiences.
>>

This whole argument seems like a miscommunication of semantics. When people say pander they probably mean 'cater to' half the time because they don't appreciate the difference in meaning.

>>82550307
>"Otaku shit" is a category you've made up. It's not real.
He's talking about obvious weeb bait. You know, moeshit. The kind of stuff you'd see plastered all over Akiba and preserved in PVC figurines. The kind of stuff where they censor the raunchy bits for the BD because they know it'll get otaku to buy a show they've already seen.

People look at you like you're dumb because "otaku pandering" is as obvious a statement as "sex sells," since that is exactly what's happening. They're just playing to Japanese hikikomori tastes specifically.

>>82550393
>That still doesn't change it's all for otaku
m8 no one said that. We're not saying Hayao "Feed an Otaku a Glocku" Miyazaki is targeting shut-ins; just that it's prevalent, and it's gotten more prevalent with the uptick in moeshittery and waifufaggotry of this decade.

>>
>>82550528
>He's talking about obvious weeb bait. You know, moeshit.
Otaku and weeaboos are two different groups of people, and absolutely different when talking about Japanese otaku. Weeaboos aren't even a target audience anyway.

"Moeshit" is not a real thing either, and moe-type anime is not aimed at or particularly appealing to weeaboos, it's aimed at otaku.

>The kind of stuff where they censor the raunchy bits for the BD because they know it'll get otaku to buy a show they've already seen.
Moe-type anime has zero or very little "fanservice," and nipples are censored because Japanese television requires them to be censored.

>People look at you like you're dumb because "otaku pandering" is as obvious a statement as "sex sells," since that is exactly what's happening.
You have no proof that it exists, and you don't even know what you're talking about in general as demonstrated by your continuous factual errors.

Dude I was being glib. Are you really going to pick that apart? I'm aware of the subtle difference between "hardcore anime fans" and wapanese Ken-sama types if you're going to throw an anime fandom dictionary at me.

>Moe-type anime has zero or very little "fanservice,"
Yeah, that's why I bundled them together with "waifufaggotry," rather than expecting "moeshit" to cover the whole of it. And as for your BD point, you're forgetting the many instances where steam, camera angles, etc. obscured literally nothing of value, and it really was just to bait people into buying the BDs.
>>

Yes, it turns out that sometimes you need to read books to understand complicated topics like the culture and subculture of a foreign country. Did I just blow your millennial Wikipedia-addled mind?

>>82550828
>Dude I was being glib.
Uh huh.

>Yeah, that's why I bundled them together with "waifufaggotry," rather than expecting "moeshit" to cover the whole of it.
In that reply you only mentioned "moeshit," and "waifufaggotry" essentially is just another way of saying moe anyway.

>And as for your BD point, you're forgetting the many instances where steam, camera angles, etc. obscured literally nothing of value, and it really was just to bait people into buying the BDs.
When the characters are naked they need to obscure their nipples and genitalia regardless of whether they intend to show the nipples on the BDs. Not all shows feature bare nipples because it doesn't fit all the shows, so the BDs will remain censored too. It has nothing to do with baiting (which is also not a real thing).
>>

>Yes, it turns out that sometimes you need to read books to understand complicated topics like the culture and subculture of a foreign country.
Too bad we're not talking about that, then. Just anime and otaku.

No, that's retarded. I would consider Precure moe, as opposed to some fanservice-laden harem anime like Monster Musume (which I would put in the waifu camp).

Moe is a feeling of love, affection and excitement towards anime/etc. characters. Someone who really likes a character could consider her his "waifu."

>>82551107
Anime is a unique half a century old artform comprising thousands of shows, movies and OVAs and is preceded by another half a century of animation. It's very closely tied to manga, an even older and larger artform. It also has close ties with light novels, visual novels and other video games, and music, and their respective industries. It's a product of Japanese culture, society, history and language, and otaku subculture. It has its own animation, production and industrial practises, character and story conventions, and worldview, and so on.

Otaku culture has been a very contested topic in and outside Japan that's been subject to fairly significant academic interest and societal attention. The topic has its own history (or histories) and literature.

A foreigner starts with zero knowledge of all of these things and has to learn about all of them and how they relate to each other.
>>
>>82551229
why are you instantly assuming I think the 90s were good or better?
I judge narratives based on their quality, not their legacy.
>>
>>82551251
Well, you say "the shitty state of cartoons" so I assumed there was some kind of temporal reference here. Just an observation either way. Though I think you're underselling the relationship between quality and legacy; no one looks back fondly on Squirrel Boy or Super Duper Sumos.

You're a very literal-minded person, aren't you. This is a forum for Malaysian kinography, not a peer-reviewed journal. Be a little more adaptable, you know? I mean, kids say "hot" when they mean "cool" -- it's a madhouse.

Though I agree that otaku culture is a pretty nuanced thing, and anime and manga are tied irrevocably into the underlying society. It would be silly to argue otherwise.

>It's a product of Japanese culture, society, history and language, and otaku subculture. It has its own animation, production and industrial practises, character and story conventions, and worldview, and so on.
You mean underpaid animators, pandering to otaku, and unique character and story conventions? What? Like "onii-chan let me suck your dick!"? Because it's not complicated at all.

Nobody cares about otaku. Even the Japanese don't care about otaku. They just leave 'em alone.

As an /a/ crossboarder, it's always amusing watching people on /co/ argue about anime.

Because it's clear that both parts have no idea what the fuck they're talking about, and they probably have watched less then 50 series between the two of them. It's basically a contest about who can shout their personal opinion the longest.
>>
>>82556795
I was never used to it. They had a bunch of them on in the 80's to 00's inbetween other cartoons. I hated it. I've never been able to adjust to them. Anime always just seemed so jarring inbetween my other favorite cartoon shows. Western comics suck, it's all just capeshit and bad capeshit at that. I think whether you like American stuff or Japanese stuff depends on your upbringing/basic tastes. There's nothing wrong with liking either. I just like my cartoons. Always have.

Regular Show is one of the best cartoons I've ever seen. I enjoy just sitting down every week to see what the characters will don. I enjoy it.

Uncle Grandpa is the best western cartoon since Animaniacs/Ren and Stimpy/Spongebob. On point likable characters, visual gags, and all of that great stuff. Don't understand why people shit on it.

I feel that the over animation of many western cartoons add to their liveliness and funny tone. It's interesting to watch characters squash and stretch and other shit like that. At least to me

I've seen some Dragon Ball on [as]. Not bad, but they all look weird as fuck. Them fucking foreheads man.

>>82534191
Yeah, that's for kids. It doesn't matter whether or not it implies murder, sex, or stuff like that, as long as the plot is very easy to follow and characters are easy to understand, using plenty of frequently used character archetypes and tropes/clichés. Avatar: The Last Airbender is a kids' cartoon. So is Batman: The Animated Series. So is Justice League. So is Pokémon. So is Dragon Ball Z. So is the first half of Naruto. Most American adults' cartoons are really just kids' cartoons with lots of dirty jokes and references to "adults' stuff" (like business, politics, and social issues).
>>
>>82557294
Dragon Ball? Dragon Ball is really childish, even if it isn't really "kid-friendly". Then again, it's based off a shounen manga, not a kodomo manga.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars has a shitload of deaths, mostly Clone Troopers, but important characters as well.

The clone deaths, though. Holy fuck they go full "WAR IS HELL!" in a lot of scenes, with whole transports full of troopers getting blown to smithereens, as the men not immediately incinerated by the blast are sucked out of the wreckage due to depressurization and left to fall to their messy demise. Or sucked out of a hull breach into the vacuum of space. Or Decapitated by lightsabers. Etc. Etc. Etc.

It absolutely is not. It handles issues in an extremely simplistic way that says everything directly to the audience, and the most "mature" themes it deals with are basic shit like "Not all people from an enemy nation are evil" and "Killing is a thing".

So not only are you ignorant of anime, otaku culture and Japan, but you're also ignorant of cinema. Cinema and anime aren't the same thing anyway so I don't know why you're bringing it up.

>You mean underpaid animators, pandering to otaku
I mean all of the things I said. Animators tend to be underpaid, but what does that have to do with this? Otaku pandering is a myth and does not exist.

>And unique character and story conventions? What? Like "onii-chan let me suck your dick!"? Because it's not complicated at all.
Like a lot of things, and I never said the character and story conventions of anime are complicated. I said the topic of anime AS A WHOLE is complicated.

>Nobody cares about otaku. Even the Japanese don't care about otaku. They just leave 'em alone.
As I just told you, a lot has been written academically about otaku. Otaku and otaku culture have also been of interest to the government on Japan. In the mid 2000s there was also a very popular book/TV drama/movie about otaku called Densha Otoko which made the topic very trendy for a while.

>Oh, get over yourself, man
Huh? I was simply making a factual statement.

It's just fucking incredible how you people don't know ANYTHING about the topic but still try to argue about like this.

I remember it, but it's hardly deep or mature or anything. They spell out "he lost his son, decided war was bad, and took on Zuko as a replacement" so that a 6-year-old could understand. It's nothing that would be out of place in a Disney movie.

>>82560074
Mufasa's death didn't make The Lion King deep or mature. It's very basic storytelling.

ATLA literally had it's characters say how they feel and why, directly to the audience. There's so much more telling than showing that it can't be called remotely mature.

The difference between anime and American cartoons is the way people react to them. If /co/fags see a female cartoon character with any kind of curves at all, it's "not appropriate for kids", but if an /a/non sees a female anime character showing off her tits or ass, it's "annoying fucking cliché and unnecessary fanservice".

Anime in japan is either for children or manchildren

>>
>>82573146
Adults enjoying Anime is looked down upon there. Manga , not so much as long as you read stuff about mundane non fantasy topics like fishing cooking, business and mahjong
>>
>>82573235
It's a convinient way for people to avoid recognizing that adults also watch anime in Japan. Because they're "manchildren," so they don't count as real adults.

That cute and all for the people who enjoy the respective series but the mainstream still thinks theyre cringe. The only people who watch those anime movies are the die hard fans and have poor longevity in the box office. Meanwhile your ttypical dudebro marvel for flick there earns 100x more. And dude anyone can buy sponsorships/advertisement deals, whats your point?

anyway i used to think japan was a happy place where the average citiZen watched anime and read manga all day then inread many japanese blogs and 2ch. Youd be surprised that they are a lot more interested in their local baseball team/politics than whatever flavor of the month waifu /a/ jerks over
