Is it weird?

Recommended Posts

Kinda an offshoot of someone else's topic which was about watching anime geared toward the opposite gender.

My question is a little more...personal.

If your 18+ and your watching one of those awesome harem anime. You know the kind I'm talking about the one with all the amazing looking TEENAGE girls.

Do you feel like a pedophile watching and enjoying these type of shows. Especially the ecchi ones.

Me personally I try to stay away from those types becuz of the above reasons. We can't control the culture of another country so it's kinda difficult for me to watch those shows. Anywho what do you think?

No, for a varriation of reasons.


1. Most of the girls are 15 to 17 in the anime, if you are 18 that mwans you are only a year to 3 years older, which kids even have friends and girlfriends that are younger than them, does that mean you stop hanging out wth them just because you grew a year older, no.


 


2.Just because you watch ecchi, does not mean you are interested in looking at anime girls, it is just a show, it means you like to watch shows. you could be watching it for that reason, or you could not be, but it is still just you watching a show, no big deal.


 


I enjoy some ecchi ones, because I like the story, I don't turn 18 till later this year, but I am not going to stop watching a certaint type of anime just because I am a year older, if I still like the shows, I will still watch them.

I don't feel guilty at all. After all, they are not sexualized and it is purely an art form! Plus it helps that there are 30 year old lolis and other things, for all you know they could all be older than 18 and you wouldnt be any wiser.


 


Anyways, I wouldn't stop watching the shows even if people said I was being a pedophile. They are designed for entertainment and I find the good ones entertaining (some of them just arent funny though). So there isnt any harm.

But see the problem is in the U.S that type of material is illegal. It just astounds me that if this rule was I enforced half of all localized manga/anime would be blocked. So since we're in this new age of surveillance you gotta keep a mind on this stuff. Sure the characters are not all underage but anime where it specifically says that they are in high school implies their all minors. And to see that type of stuff and enjoy it just seems wrong to me. This is something be debated in japan. Apparently the actual term loli comes a book were a man has strong attraction to a 12 year old girl. Needless to say it was controversial. It never thought about this till the other day I read about the controversial aspect I tell my self used to watch this stuff when I was younger and in that age group. Now it's like if I was to watch a tv series about high school kids in those scenarios with those elements I would promptly turn it off.

Nah.

Seeing as how some 50 year olds look like they're 17, I just do that whole 'o, that's so japan' thing.

So long as the characters are not sexualized, then it does not qualify as underage. Also they will rarely touch anything that does not fall into the category of pornography. This is why shows like Highschool DxD can and are dubbed and sold in the United States.

I see so anime like Demon king Daimo dont make a hint towards the characters age's so there able to distribute anime with mature content (mature content becuz of the nipple scenes)  and even infinite stratos with its ecchi scenes. So their safe becuz any age can be assumed since it's anime where a old character can be made to look young like Toma's teacher in certain magical index. Thanx for clearing that up lemington. It's just blew my mind that anime like that can be aloud to be distributed in america without a problem.


 


But if the anime says it's a high school not an academy and the characters are high school students and there are ecchi scenes then we can agree that anime wont be distributed in america.


 


Also nintendon's signature is just too funny with irony!

Nope, Highschool DXD is out in America, and it has naked girls and a whole lot more.

Also Dears, Girls Bravo, Cat Planet Cuties, Kampfer.

 

The release them all here if they do well in japan.

They are all about high school students, but it is ok, because it is anime, they arn't real people doing that stuf.

I look at it like this: anime years are like dog years. That's why everyone in anime treats 30 year olds like they're 85.


 


High school girls in anime have the bodies of 20-somethings. Hell, Misty from Pokemon was supposed to be child-age and she looked more like what an actual high school girl does.


 


So yeah, like I said: dog years.

When it comes down to it, it's not real. Who knows, maybe the governments have thought about it, and since it's not real, it doesn't count as pedophile stuff, or (excuse these touchy two words) child porn. Yes it may be weird but hey, they have those crazy Doujinshi websites out there that I have came across while watching porn (don't care what you think of me lol), and they have a TON of teenage content. HOWEVER, it's drawings, not real, so just from that... what? Just drawings. I don't look at those I try to avoid it, but I see it while browsing, and it's a legal website because if you practically type Doujinshi in the web search engine it will be the top 10 web results. Plus I've personally looked at the rights to the website, legal and all. Anyway, enough of that sensitive topic.


 


Same goes for Hentai, there's a few (probably a TON) that are in the teenage ages and such.


 


When it comes down to it, since it's not real, I don't even think pedophile comes to mind, more of the fact that you're a perv.


 


And as I said, it's not real, so it doesn't matter. 


 


~~~~~


 


As for your question, I don't care. I watch it because of the show, and a lot of those shows are quite funny, such as Girls Bravo, and several more, purely funny. And their ages are like 16 or 17 (like one of the persons above said), and you see everything. 


 


Not real, just drawings or animations. Nothing to it.

Well i see your point on the legality of it but on the basis of ethics could it be questionable? Creating something like that is like supporting something like that. IDK it's still feels fuzzy.

Very true. But also look at it this way, yes the whole pedophile is terrible gross, etc., but for some, it's an escape. For right now, it's legal, so for those gross people that want to see underage shit, they can take the temptation off, by watching Hentail or Doujinshi and the like instead. It saves them 20 years or life behind bars and such, and if you  think about it, for them, it's just better to do that instead of try to find the real shit. I know you might think or some others will think, "But you shouldn't do it in the first place"? Well that's definitely true, but for some, they just can't help it. And since it's a very touchy subject throughout the world, I don't think you can get help without screwing yourself over by telling someone you thought you could trust. 

 

Anyway, I'm done talking about it, just thought I would throw it out there, mainly because since it's a touchy subject throughout the world, I'm weirding myself out lol.

I understand what you're saying about how another may react or even how one may feel about this themselves, given the way they look at things. I think you're trying to say that if you're an 18 year old male, and the Anime, Manga, etc. stars 16 year old females then you feel as though you don't belong in that environment, and it gives you overall feeling that's it's creepy, or abnormal, or whatever.


 


But don't sweat it. There are plenty of animes with just teenage girls two that are close favorites of mine are Lucky Star and Azumanga Daioh.


 


It's really about what's inside, and I mean the story and characters and whether or not they peek your interest.

I couldn't have said it better myself. What's up with that anyway? I mean girls' bodies mature much earlier than that, and I'm not saying that it's a recommended thing, you know, adult with teen, but if it happens I don't think it makes the adult a pedophile and they should be jailed.

 

Doesn't make much sense but a lot of people seem to like it this way, who knows?

Honestly, I think the law they passed makes perfect sense. Anime is an exception to the rule as it's contents don't actually endanger children.


 


Not that I condone that sort of thing whatsoever. -_-
