Imagine being raised by someone who takes stock in about.com's anime recommendations.
>Implies happy endings should be mandatory
Fuck off Disney.
Would you prefer they call it shounen anime, OP?
They should. I paid 70 bucks for that massage, it better have a happy ending.
Then in this sense, about.com is smarter than you. Let the implications of that sink in for a bit.
Are you splitting hairs over genre versus audience? That kind of autism's more of a Wikipedia kind of thing.
I'm amazed /a/ isn't buttblasted over Avatar being on their Anime recommendations
We'll get there, give it ten posts from now.
>Not all animes have happy endings. In fact, sometimes characters die and sometimes the bad guy wins. Japanese culture doesn't shy away from death and this is often evident in anime shows.
What is Star Wars: Clone Wars
if you're actually supporting the use of "shounen" as a genre, then you should lurk more.
Aside from the avatar comment, this list isn't near as retarded as you made it out to be. It explains it in a way powerlevel 0 parents can understand without being total christfags about it. I'm somewhat impressed actually.
Why would anyone give a fuck?
This isn't the MAL forums
What are you even talking about?
I think anon is trying to say that he's watched that awful /co/ shit and that he's a fucking retard.
fucking retarded yes, but don't shit on samurai jack: star wars edition.
I'm more amazed by their attempt to establish the author's credentials.
>30-year anime fan
>Watched DBZ, InuYasha, and Bleach
Why, yes, I am. The only people who get butt-blasted are the ones that lurk Naruto threads.
It's a valiant attempt, but it paints a grim picture of the intended audience's parenting. Warnings like "even PG shows might have serafuku!" imply that 1) you care enough about what your children watch to be offended by kneecaps, but 2) that you're too lazy to Google (or even watch!) a particular series before parking your kids in front of it.
What the fuck anime is "Peach Girl"?
Haha oh wow
The grim picture has been there for awhile. We already knew american parents are dumb and lazy as fuck. This is more like "hey kid we're gonna get your parent to let you watch it without lying to them"
Well, yes. It may very well be a shining example of its genre, but it still makes for depressing reading.
>She has since covered a variety of anime series, ranging from classics such as Astro Boy and Evangelion to the more recent InuYasha, Bleach and Witch Hunter Robin.
>the more recent InuYasha, Bleach and Witch Hunter Robin.
Fact: Inuyasha, Bleach, and Witch Hunter Robin were last released 10, 2, and 12 years ago.
Hey OP, battle anime is an actual term even in Japan.
You're not one of those guys who think every battle anime ever is in the shonen demographic, are you?
I can almost guarantee OP is exactly that, and is therefore retarded.
>Some good ones to try include Case Closed, Avatar: The Last Air Bender, Pokemon, Card Captor Sakura, Tenchi Muyo, Yu-Gi-Oh! and Spirited Away.
>Avatar: The Last Air Bender
I was a little confused by that too. It sounds like they're saying that western media never portrays death or sadness.
Shota/Shotacon and Lolicon
Rating: NC-17, X, a big fat “NO”.
Translation: Crabbed together from “Shotaru complex” and “Lolita complex”.
General Content: This is something to be avoided at all costs; the terms generally refer to an adult with an unnatural sexual attraction to children, but often they point more towards the reader than the content, for the content usually depicts explicit acts between two or more younger children rather than a child and an adult. Shotacon depicts young boys, while Lolicon depicts young girls. Just back away. Back away very, very slowly. Thankfully it’s easy to avoid media in this genre, as it’s as unacceptable in Japan as it is in the Western world and thus isn’t drawn as much as the other genres.
Me second from the left.
>isn’t drawn as much as the other genres.
"Action", like a normal human being would call it.
