POW! It's the cognitive dissonance card! This card allows you to masturbate to sexualized images of children without all that unfortunate shame, because it's just a cartoon!
Cena_mark, yah I get it. I flamed this, probably shouldn't have. Anime, and in particular what I see as the normalization of the sexualization of minors, has been on my mind recently. I'm having trouble squaring away anime as an inert entertainment medium, when it seems like almost every iteration has an element of child sexualization involved. Part of me wants to just call it out at every opportunity, maybe it was misdirected here.
" ...the sexualization of minors, has been on my mind recently."
Aha! Caminante is right, you are projecting your own guilt. You just confessed!
YOU GOT ME! That quote is evidence irrefutable.
You also seemed to protest too much there. Like when I protested too much about MLP it was cause I secretly liked it, or how Homer claims to hate Steven Universe, but is a secret fan.
It's that the Caminante card? I'll have to check my notes again, but I thought cognitive dissonance was into Scrooge McDuck penis?
And that's a dang lie, Cena. I'm not a secret fan of Steven Universe, because I haven't watched it yet.
Incidentally, speaking of anime and Steven Universe, I recently finished the last season of MLP, and I noticed that Fluttershy is a weeaboo. There's a scene in the Halloween episode where she draws pony versions of characters from Ranma 1/2, Sailor Moon, Evangelion, Utena, and DBZ - all shows which Steven Universe shamelessly rips off. Fluttershy loves anime. Rebecca-Chan Sonichu loves anime. I think the person here who's in denial is YOU, Cena_Mark!
Or should I say, Cena_Anime_Mark...?!
The only person in denial here is crasspm. The fox that cries the loudest, and all.
I don't hate anime. I liked One Punch Man, Cromartie High School, and Studio Ghibli films.
You really should try watching DBZ and Ranma 1/2, if nothing else. DBZ is super-manly and promotes good physical fitness, while Ranma 1/2 is arguably the best kung fu transgender teen sex anime ever made.
Normie? Is that someone who has "normal" tastes in anime?
I did watch DBZ back in the day, but quit somewhere in the Freeza Saga. I couldn't take the slow slow pacing any longer. I don't need an anime to be macho for me to like it. My favorite Ghibli film is Whisper of the Heart.
I'd say my favorite anime is Legend of Korra. IT IS AN ANIME. Anime is about style not country of origin.
What about The Boondocks? If you're counting Amerime, then surely you'd resonate with The Boondocks.
Chiming in here again. I have enjoyed anime in the past. I've enjoyed DBZ and I find the studio ghibli stuff uniquely interesting and inspiring. It's not that an entire genre of media is at fault for something, that'd be an absurd accusation just on its face.
I lived in Japan for a year teaching English, and I got to know my neighbours during that time. They were a young couple with a toddler, and we would often get together for dinners and board games. This is where I got my first education of otaku, but in the Japanese sense: adult males with an unhealthy interest in cartoon characters, in particular infantilized female characters.
Anime is extremely diverse and need not be characterized by its worst elements. But I challenge anyone who claims that there isn't a segment of the genre dedicated to the sexualization of children.
Sure, Boondocks is cool.
You're the normie, Mr. DBZ and Sailor Moon. You don't get more normie than that.
Caminante called you a normie! Not me!
I'm a 90s anime fan. I have normie tastes for an older millenial, and that's OK. You can be a normie if you want - you're a normie wrestling mark, for example - and there's no shame in that.
Well, I mean, there IS shame in being a normie wrestling fan, because John Cena is bullshit and every talent Vince has pushed since Stone Cold has been a tool, but being an ANIME NORMIE is ok.
I'm not a wrestling normie. I'm a hard core fan. I hate Roman Reigns cause he can't wrestle and has been shoved down everyone's throats. I understand some of those criticisms are pointed at Cena, but Cena is a way better wrestler, and Cena in his initial pushes got himself over.
There's a segment of every medium devoted to the sexualization of everything.
If you wanted to be more accurate, the mainstream stuff is more like the sexualization of teenage girls more than young children, and the target audience are teenage boys, not creepy old men.
You're a dedicated normie, but a normie nonetheless. Where's your ECW shirt, c. 1997? Where's your ticket to go see Jeff Hardy at Juggalo Championship Wrestling?
Cena's a way better wrestler than Roman Reigns, sure, but that isn't saying much. You could throw Fluttershy into the ring and she'd outwrestle Roman Reigns (and beat Cena to a draw).
I went to TNA's Bound For Glory 2007 as well as ECW's final pay per view December to Dismember 2006.
ECW didn't exist in 2006, Normie Mark.
I don't think you guys have watched the latest season or 2 of boondocks. It's gone downhill - has absolutely none of the style or philosophical substance it used to. I didn't even like it that much to begin with, but I had respect for it up until season 3 or 4.
As a fan of Uno, I appreciate this joke.
|Caminante Nocturno |
I don't want to spoil it for anyone, but Yuno wins thanks to a combination of drawing the Legendary Reverse Card left to him by his long-lost father, and because the other player forgot to say "uno."
There will be even more fantastic and amazing cards to be used in the follow up series, and the Motion Picture(s).
It doesn't matter, with the Draw Four Cards Dragon Yuno cannot win!
A better title would be "If UNO was Yu-Gi-Oh"
Yu-Gi-Oh isn't anime enough for you?
Because I agree, it's pretty normie-tier.
Our YT recommendations are all shit, that's why we find so much shit to post here. It's a never ending cycle.
just as exhausting as trying to watch real anime, well done
