You don't have to like it, but there's nothing wrong there. It's all fictional.

My Little CaptainExplosion can't be this close-minded to not figure that what he sees as crazy is normal elsewhere and that he is not the target audience for such content and that he should stop watching what pisses him off out on his own?

Hey. I came up with a LN title.



That is a big turn off for me when it comes to anime and japanese games for some reason

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?

Mao and I had a chuckle at this. In a medium where a character's age doesn't often reflect their design, it seems like a silly thing to be all hot and bothered over. Reminds me of that old trap argument.

Anyways, if you don't like it, go invest your time into another medium.

No, the age of consent in Japan is 18 (local law matters, not the national "base" law). Let's stop with the uneducated rumors if you want a real debate.

Male dominated society, yes, and it's way too much. Feminists should try to come here if they want to do meaningful stuff.

 

But anime is not considered really "normal" by most Japanese people, they know it's crazy, they just kinda accept it. 

Found this: https://www.quora.com/Why-is-the-age-of-consent-so-low-in-Japan

Looks a lot like a legal construct that can be bent however someone sees fit, provided they have the money.

Also, it sheds some light on another thread we had recently: Japan losing interest in relationships. If things really work like described in that link, then it wouldn't surprise me if teenagers first have no interest in a relationship with another teenager due to potential legal consequences, and later on no interest either, because they've already learned to live without a relationship and not gained any experience in forging a relationship.

FMD, Newton's laws of physics are easier to understand.

 

Talk about vague for the poor teenagers. Wtf is an unethical relationship between two teenagers who want to date lol?



 

 

It's just a drawing, besides, it's not like underage people have no sexuality at all



"It's okay guys they're just drawing" Jesus Christ, even though their brains know they're underage and lusting over them, wish Japan just stop using fan-service in anime/games it's the biggest reason why I never watch most anime rn

The problem is I found it really sexy, but when it turned out she was only 14-15 I felt like a piece of shit. Then again, she's an anime character and I didn't do anything directly to her, right?



Some days I just blow up.

Don't worry about the age, she's not a real person. If she's drawn to look 25, then whatever age the author tells you she is is irrelevant...it just means you're attracted to adult women. Unless you're only attracted her because she's underage...which, yeah, is a problem, but it sounds like that doesn't apply to you.

I can't tell how many times I found a girl cute only for the author to pull out the old: "Oh she's actually a guy, ha ha got you!" Am I suddenly gay for being attracted to a female character design?
