Well put..

One of the most retarded topics I saw so far here, how can OP whine that they are representing females wrong when it's all just pure entertainment. If every show has to excist of independent strongwilled females it would be boring and misleading to.

OP get your ass to moslim countries and go make them aware that the female is equal to the male, you'll be more in place theire then on an anime forum, you turd.

the makers of the manga dont MAKE it to be sexist, and they hate it when people like u say they do, cuz they spend so much time on making this manga and all u care about is that its "sexist"...

It's not sexism. It's because of the audience they are directed at. The mahou shoujo genre, directed at young girls, tend to have a wide array of female super fighters, with average-skilled, cute male supports. The shows you pointed out tend to the male audience, who like seeing strong male figures they can look up to, as well as attractive female sides who might be weaker.

They show differently according to the differing wants of viewers.

What is sexism, anyways? It is important to realize that THERE IS AN INHERENT DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GENDERS. Do we mean stereotyping? You have to stereotype in entertainment for the most part. Screw with long-held views and you throw everyone for a loop.

Sexism in anime, what do you guys think?
I was raised to be indifferent in gender. (although my attraction falls towards the female sex.. meaning that I'm heterosexual.) But that isn't the point I'm trying to make..

Do you think there is sexism in anime?
I often see it.. Many shounen anime have the male characters as the most dominant characters.. Even though they sometimes have kickass girls who fight, they're almost always used as support characters.. "Dragon Ball, Bleach, Naruto, One Piece" one of the reasons I dislike them..
On occasions it's the opposite direction towards magical girl manga, where there are few or almost no male characters at all..

Romances go both ways a lot of the time, but sometimes, even they may be sexist..

It's alright to think that way for olden times when women still had no rights.. But equality is lacking for anime that are placed in modern times...

I think this is true..


Your limited point of view of the animes they actually have is what makes you think anime producers are somehow being sexist against females. Claymore and Shakugan no Shana are examples where the females play the dominant roles and Claymore is even a shounen manga.

One Piece has the main protagonist as male but there are also very capable and smart female characters that are integral in the storyline.

Naruto also has females that are equally capable and if not more capable than many of the male characters.

Bleach also has female characters playing important roles as fighters that are quite capable. Rukia, Nell, female espadas....

Support roles? Everyone besides the main character(s) has a support role. Just because they focus on the male protagonist does not equate to them being sexist or else everything can be considered sexist since they have to either have a male dominant character or female one.

Yeah.
But it's every once in a while.
It's hard to see because it might be use for a 'comedy' type moment.
