5/31/06 - Anime
Maybe I'll take some heat for this one, but I hate anime. I just don't get it. Why is this cool? Why are adult men fascinated with this? It just seems like crappy animation to me. Please keep in mind that I was not raised on comicbooks but do have an appreciation for the tradational old-school marvel and DC comics.
I once saw a piece of anime I kindof liked. That was in Kill Bill 2 I think. Even then it seemed contrite and forced. The whole genre is mind numbing. What are they trying to accomplish?
Take a look at the kids in the pic above. Do they look like any children you have ever seen? They certainly don't look asian. If anime is Japan's great contribution to the world you think they would have imparted more of their ethnicity into their drawings.
The most disturbing part is the amount of porn associated with anime. Who is getting off to this? This might be the most disturbing porn out there besides women who f*ck animals. I say that anyone that enjoys this porn should be sent to the island where we send all the pedophiles. I have no problem with deviant sexual behavior. You like to drip wax on your nipples while hanging upside down with a turkey club shoved up your a**, fine with me. But if you get off to anime, thats just wrong.
According to Wiki, anime features a wide variety of artistic styles which vary from artist to artist and is characterized by stark, colorful graphics and stylized, colorful images depicting vibrant characters in a variety of different settings and storylines, aimed at a wide range of audiences.
I have two responses to that: 1. anime is crap and 2. that description of anime was probably written by a pedophile.
Anime: I hate you.
