So when did someone decide to take advantage of the male market of shows intented for little girls?
I know Hideo Azuma invented loli-manga in the 80's...but that's not the same.
Where and when did it all start?
America in the 1930's with Shirley Temple
fuckin nigga stop projecting
>Doesn't know Japan took inspiration from America for a lot of what they do now
Do you even Bewitched and Betty Boop and the impact they had on Japan?
shut up. this is not what this thread is about.
this is /a/. not /tv/
it started when they found out grown men are watching shows for little girls
it started when they were making magic girls anime
No their intent were little girls from the start.
Creamy Mami was the first TV anime where the staff knew there was an older audience; Minky Momo was the first to have a big one. Lolicon in manga even dates back to the '60s
You really think so? Any sources to back that? Creamy Mami was used to advertise Idols, but that's it as far as I know...
And can you give me examples of lolicon mangas in the 60's? I only know the first appeared 1979 called White Cybele
Yuji Nunokawa who was the executive producer of Creamy Mami said he was aware of them and wasn't bothered. The goal was definitely still to sell toys to little girls and promote Takako Ohta's idol career but it was a landmark all the same. There were some OVAs in the '80s and '90s featuring the popular magical girls of the time but that's pretty much it. Serious cultivation of adult male fans of shows for little girls didn't come until the '90s and the process was gradual
Creamy Mami is cute as fuck and I have no idea why the producers would assume only kids watched it.
She just died to today, actually. I didn't even know she was still alive.
MLP situation really...or any other girlie, wtf are you even saying?
>Serious cultivation of adult male fans of shows for little girls didn't come until the '90s and the process was gradual
Can you pinpoint...like a manga in a shonen magazine that became an anime or something
If it's in a shonen magazine it's not intended primarily for little girls, unless they're into BL
yeah but k-on, azumanga, hidamari etc. are in seinen.
They're not aimed at little girls either.
Wow, didn't know that. Apparently she became a bit reclusive after being such a famous child actress so that's probably why
I don't get how my question is hard to understand, what was the first manga with little girls aimed at a male demographic?
They're also not really relevant when the subject is when the trend started. They're examples of the trend going into full swing, the point is that such manga weren't always so common in content aimed at the male demographic.
Weird how that works. I remember a couple weeks ago I had assumed that Yogi Berra was dead, but when I went to check apparently he's still around.
>influence on animu
just think weeaboo
To answer that we would first have to establish criteria on how to judge when manga has male demographics in mind.
This can be kind of subtle. People might erupt into argument about whether Mighty Atom's sister is fanservice to guys for example.
