Japanese Influence Perversion/Anime/Schoolgirls

Postby rare as rockinghorse shat on Tue Nov 14, 2017 11:34 am

Can someone please explain this to me?

I'm sure a few of you are aware that I'm about as far from a sensitive soul as you can get and have a swinging housebrick where my heart should be, so I'm not outraged or offended by it, but I just cannot get my nut around the fascination with Japanese animation/pop culture which can quite often be based on either school girls or girls styled/animated to look of a very questionable age.

I often frequent HUKD and saw this deal posted
There's a couple of comments on there already, 1 saying how 'fun' it is and I know that actual fully grown adults will actually buy, play and enjoy this ****.

I know there's a huge amount of virginity of Japanese male adults and many often resign themselves to a life of voyeurism etc so I get that, but when it's western men and those who you'd think capable of something more, it's all a bit ****ing weird.

I absolutely detest most Anime style crap in the first instance anyway (I appreciate that there's some well made, serious work in this field that is an exception) and each to their own with what people like and all that, but this leaves me scratching my head every time.

They've been at it for years. Fortunately most of the stuff doesn't make it on to the shelves over here (but can be picked up online). It's not just schoolgirl type stuff; some of the earlier "games" were basically rape scenarios.

That, I get.

It's the 34yr old seemingly normal English blokes that are playing PS4 games where you spray young Anime girls at a swimming pool.

I'd imagine it is becoming increasingly "normal" to eschew genuine relationships with the opposite gender, in favour of solo gratification via different means (grot, anime, sex dolls, whatever). Being an obese, coddled, mummy's boy is hardly likely to make you popular with the ladies.

You've only got to look at the TV game-shows on YOUTUBE: somehow the Japanese manage to be kinky
and ultra-conservative at the same time.

This is certainly worth a watch. A Stacey Dooley documentary on the Japanese fascination with young girls.

Japan has only recently legislated for the possession of child pornography.

Burusera shops - WTF?!?!?

Prostitution is illegal in Japan unless you do it in the mouth or up the bum then it's all fair game.

While the love for anime is baffling, the fusion of pornography with anime is even more baffling.

Very strange sexual culture.

As for Western people being interested, I think there is a growing obsession with all things 'cute'. Witness the obsession with cute dogs, anime, and K-Pop.

I've said it before on another thread, but there is a worrying trend towards infantilism, and the 'cutesy' and school boy/girl nature of Asian culture (know as 'sieshun' in Japan) is being sucked in because of it.

There is a lot of things that confuse me in life, this one of the biggest

I can understand watching some of the films (Spirited Away or the original Ghost in the Shell) but the whole schoolgirl, rape, waifu thing is all a bit creepy

When it comes to fetishes, "strange" is an understatement!

Indeed. 'Deeply troubling' is probably more accurate.

I understand that manga and anime have a style and so a lot of the characters of either gender have childlike big eyes and small mouths even in things like Akira. Like everyone else here, I don't understand how these other cartoons filled with what look like busty five-year-olds being attacked by penis-tentacled demons is ever seen as 'cool'. I'm guessing that's a different kind of anime to whatever Ghost in the Shell and all that is - it's one that I can't see anyone ever having a good explanation for. I don't even want to look up waif and burusera to find out what they are.

Also, Dr Venk, good point about the drift towards infantilism generally. Weird how someone with a unicorn mug used to be the office weirdo but make the image on the mug look like it came out of a Super Mario game and it's a must have. Not the best illustration of your point but you know what I mean.

With regards to Japan's weird sex laws and porn, it used to be the Germans and the Japanese who pushed the porno limits (aggressors in WW2), then the Americans really got on their 'last superpower left standing' military wig out in the last thirty years and, simultaneously, their smut has become quite disturbing in parts. Russia has had enough of Glasnost and their porn is now frequently plain evil. **** knows what's going on in Brazil but I wouldn't be surprised if they annexed Bolivia tomorrow based on their filth.
