I heard about a japanese guy (who is still on the run) who murdered his british teacher, and killed her like in a manga he owned. I think they found her in a bath of sand from a shrine with her hair shaved off. Horrible.

Yes, it does corrupt some people. Only the dumb ones though. But seriously, if you like Death Note enough to imitate it, please don't get caught. It only shames Death Note. @Cops Stop blaming Death Note for those idiots, they were stupidedly influenced by it. Besides, they had no intentions of actually killing anyone, probably. Overreacting...-.- They're basically just writing a list of people they hate. >.>

As for the ones about people dying or getting arrested for imitating Naruto...OMG. The world has come to a end. Anime has gone this far in peoples lives to make them lose they're common sense?!??! Don't tell your friends to bury yourself in sand, don't bury your friends in sand. >.> Sure, they were young but even so, isn't it common sense?? >.> I'll defend Naruto on this one, Naruto shouldn't get the blame. Naruto is PG13, rated anyways, if anyone, blame the parents. They are the ones that let them watch it. They better up it to R soon though, people over the age of 13 might lose their ability to do things sensibly too.

It's up to how he's raised by his parents........not only anime can affect them...but movie or book too..

So...the one should be blamed isn't what they watched but what they were taught.

I've just read a thread about the two 12 year olds arrested for writing on a death note. Similar cases also happened and the punishment is more than it should be or at least I think so.

Do you think anime makes people violent and those people like the ones above should be arrested? I personally think anime isn't at fault and arresting young people for writing on a death note is cruel; It's not like no one makes a list of the people they hate right? Besides, they give anime a bad image. So what do you think? Should anime be censored like those boring cartoons in america? Or should it remain as it is because it depends on the person on how he/she will shape his future?

Personally, I made a hate list when I was around 6-8 years old; My perception of anime back then was the same as cartoons and anime wasn't as violent as it is now. Now I simply think of that list as some crap I made.

Note*Don't bother flaming, just my opinion.
I love anime and I want it to remain as it is.


what I think is that anime isn't bad, its just that children should be able to differentiate between anime and real life. Therefore, its up to parents to decide what shows are suitable or not. (I still remember my mom not letting me be able to watch simpsons until I was like 10)

What they were taught yes, Because it would dictate their current values, and their outlook on life. After a certain point in life what they were taught really shouldn't apply anymore. I mean its the difference between an ten and 20 year old, the ten yr old would be more prone to take in things in the media and enact it. older people have the ability to take in things in the media and decide if to or not to take it seriously, because they've lived a good 10 or whatever + years and thus have more experience in life. Then again there are older people like the ones mentioned before who are either weak minded, insane or just people who don't have many positive things in their lives (people who fall under these categories are probably depressed, anti social, extremely stressed, introverted etc.)

Only dumb people and kids can get corrupted by anime. People should be smart enough to tell the difference between reality and anime.

well if you are a kid maybe.... that is what the parents' jobs are; teaching the kids the difference between fact and fiction without taking out the fun of enjoying it.
the only animes that can corrupt people my age is hentai

its not the animes fault its like what happens to those kids with the video games they see violence and they thank its okay to recreate that violence in real life, i know people have heard this line a million times before but im saying it again. Its up to the parents to teach there kids what is right and what is wrong.
