Can someone explain to me without joking why I hate lesbian shows? In general actually, I hate lesbians. Their love just feels fake. Its cute, I get it. However it doesn't feel serious like how relationships normally are portrayed with male/female characters.
>>
>>100444826
>it feels different from male/female relationships
It's the purity that's throwing you off.
>>
>>100444826
Because lesbians are crazy dykes that are only with other females because they hate men and don't want to be alone.
>>
>>100444935
Well see thats the problem. Their 'purity' is usually just confusion or experimentation. I haven't seen many shows where yuri couples deal with anything serious at all. Its just sunshine and flowers, and its painfully unrealistic.

There are yuri manga like that.

But they're not as cute.

1 cute girl = good
2 cute girls being cute to each other = better

I have difficulty relating to relationships in anime when they're primarily predicated on something as superficial as gender.

Whenever there's a male/female i have to overcome the barrier of "well she's only interested in him because he's a guy. If he were a girl, it'd be arbitrarily off limits" and vice versa.

The fact of the matter is, in anime, female characters (and their interpersonal relationships) are focused on a lot more heavily. It's a given, then, that consumating those relationships would feel more natural and satisfying. Rather than shoehorning in a self-insert, with no detectable personality, or relation to the girls outside of them both fawning over his limp dick.

What romance do you think is real?

In animu when shit is not idealized as fuck then gets DRAMA out of their ass.

No seriously this is what it feels like everytime I see a dyke in anime. They always have to ruin fun shows with their incessant clinginess toward their "love" and/or abuse towards the MC.

Read more yuri manga. And please... we are talking about anime. Most romances in anime are portrayed in a silly, unrealistic manner. Most of them are shallow fantasies for sad, lonely men.
It's really tragic when harems are the most popular romcoms. This ugly, superficial genre that objectifies both women and men.
>>
wait, I always thought fujoshi were more into yuri than otaku were

Personally, yuri (especially non-H yuri) is at the bottom of shit I'd ever consider reading, nothing appealing about 2 girls loving each other in the same way there's nothing appealing about 2 guys loving each other (can't relate to either scenario).

Not really. But if you relate to anime characters, which are usually pathetic and shallow then I pity you.

It should be easy to empathize with other human beings, no matter if the are homo, hetero, old, young, men or women. We aren't that different. It seems like anime really makes people less... human.

I know this is bait but I still don't think my opinion on this show would be much different. It's just okay and makes your dick hard every so often.
Most shows would benefit from having actual well written characters, instead of getting all these generic tropes. I will say in male characters defense that they have more potential to be well written in anime. I don't honestly think I could tell you a single well written and respected female character in anime ever.
Maybe the major from GitS but she's relies on her tomboyish actions to be different and unique.

>>
>>100451325
I'm just saying that neither is true. My favorite anime is Mushishi. But I love Aria and Kino too.
>>
>>100451198
I mean, you can try but really you can't . When you consider all the big and incredibly influential anime had either a mostly male cast or male leads. It just becomes apparent. There's never really been a female character that left me in awe and one I deeply respect. Also, don't confuse your sexual desires for being something actually well written. Maybe I was a little to harsh though. I know some good females but really no great ones that go out of their way to become legendary and influential characters. .

Not him but Shotaro Kaneda, Jubei Kibagami, Jotaro Kujo, Goku and Lupin the 3rd are all more memorable, respectable then anyone you just named. And that's just characters off the top of my head I can think of at least 50 more big game changing male mc's.

I can respect a lot of female mc's and recognize they have been in a lot of great and outstanding works but they're is definitely not more influential females in anime. It's like this in every other entertainment medium to man. This probably has to do with the fact men run all these industries.

Asuka and Rei might be more memorable and influential in the west.

But fuck nigger, learn a thing or two about Japan. They have the biggest raging boner for Jojo in general but especially part 3. Its a gigantic thing over there and its not 2deep4u either. Jotaro is definitely more memorable than Asuka or Rei in Japan first and foremost because he actually represents a traditional Japanese man. Strong, stoic and resourceful.

Again. What does this mean? Are you stupid? How can anime be influential in the West? No one gives a shit about anime there. Do you think famous, good directors were inspired by Evangelion or something? And you know that Evangelion is one of the biggest things in Japan?
