Have you seen how some real 14-17 year old girls dress?

Yes, but I don't think they won't older guys to get off to them.

LOL pokoko

Captain, they are fake characters... LOL, they could be 30 years old and will look exactly the same in anime. It's just that they love the whole "school" environment. That's really what you're commenting on. Most of those things don't touch on an actual age. Everything is hypothetical, and presented based on culture. It's not a big deal. You need to relax. We  have so much fucked up things happen in real life, you shouldn't worry about a drawing made by some random guy. It's like condemning people who like to have sex in school-girl role play outfits. You need to separate things. Stop getting offended by literally nothing.

My issue with a lot of Japanese creations in that medium is that they are designed poorly. Not only do they look dumb to the role, then they get the most annoying voices, and act like complete morons. I dislike it on a creativity standpoint. The end result of their work. But again, I preach no starting biased based on a form of art. And it is art.

So this is ok to be aroused by?

I didn't know how old they were till I looked them up in a wiki, now I feel disgusting. >_<

Captain, I don't care if painting miniatures or hentai turns you on. I don't see this as black and white as you do.

To answer your question. Your video didn't "arouse me". I just saw a dumb show I never want to see again. Captain, it's not real. For me it's that simple. It's not for me, but I am someone who hates most of these anime characters. I like substance in my anime, like Claymore. As much as I used to like Bleach, I hated almost every female character on it. Naruto is just as bad. But again, for me, this is creative differences. 

I am jumping off this subject. It's just baiting, lol.

Yeah, answer the question.  If you see a female who is really, really hot then later you find out she's 14 years old, what do you do?  Go back in time and yell at yourself for being attracted?

What if you learn that it's only an artist's drawing and not an actual person at all?  What if the artist said, "she's 14," and you got angry, then he laughed and said, "no, she's 18, because it's not a real person and the age is something I made up"?

What if you see a drawing of what appears to be a young girl with no breasts in a sexy outfit?  What if the artist said, "no, she's actually 35"?  Because you honor the made up age of the 14/18 year old as "real" does that mean you honor this made up age, as well?



Here's a novel idea. Stop consuming content that doesn't interest, or even offends, you. Clearly it's not something you should be wasting your time on.



I am currently sigless.

Lately I've been rather concerned about how Japanese female cartoon, comic and game characters tend to be in skimpy outfits.

No I'm not saying it's wrong, but it feels like it should be when said characters are only 14-17. How is this considered ok?!

Because Japan considers maturity to come earlier than 18. And Japan can distinguish between fiction and real life

So there's nothing wrong with enjoying this?

It's fiction. It's pen and paper. So one would start there's nothing wrong. Just like you enjoy slaughtering people in God of war but won't consider maiming people with blades and axes in real life ok. I don't enjoy it you don't but if someone does, there's nothing really wrong there unless you consider murder not ok in the arts. You need to learn the difference between fact and fiction. The japanesJ are very conservative in real life and they would never tolerate this in real lofe

In other words "Don't be Master Roshi."?

Fiction is fiction, liking kill la kill because character girls looks yummy doesn't make you a bad person. If you try dating an underage girl then you are a bad person and deserve punishment

I suppose it's a good thing if you've only seen 14-17 year olds so far.

And yet in anime girls already have gigantic breasts and parade around in skimpy outfits, whereas over in North America that's pretty much pedophilia.

Do they think they can give it a pass because by then they look 18 or older?

Having sex with a pubescent person isn't pedophilia even in the US. It's against the law for some reason but it's certainly not pedophilia. Or else every 14 year old with a sex partner is a pedophile. And if you want to get really technical finding an underage or even a child sexy is not instantly a philia, because philia disctates that it has to be a preference over everything else rather than just mere attraction. So don't worry, that you feel sexually aroused by a 16 year old girl in skimpy clothes does not make you anything out of the ordinary. It's natural and healthy.

But to get back to your initial point, this isn't a recent development. Since manga and anime exploded in Japan it has been catering to every single genre, age group, fantasy, you name it. It's natural that some are of sexual or titillating nature because people enjoy it. it's also extremely popular overseas. I'm pretty sure that more people outside of Japan enjoy anime and Manga than within Japan. Despite all the lewd stuff coming from there and an absolutely booming porn industry, the country is very prude and you will be eyed by a regular citizen if you read your loli porn on the train just as in the west. In some ways they're both more progressive and more prude than the west when it comes to sexual material.
