i pretty sure everybody here can agree that anime is not bad. but i was wondering if there may be some anime that may influence a person in a bad way.

examples may be in hentai, about those with dirty old men doing, well you know stuff to girls. i was wondering if stuff like this affects anybody in any way. and im not only talking about hentai. may be in an action anime, somebody killed sombody else and a kid thought that it ok to kill people.

Evangelion brings man to kill mother
http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2003-12-02/evangelion-brings-man-to-kill-mother

For me its probably addiction to anime and losing alot of time because of it, this affects my grades a little though.

Also, I think too much harem for young males isn't good because it might give them the wrong impression that women are subservient to men and that they will do your chores while they fawn over you. Reality isn't anything like that.

I think people would already have to be mentally disturbed to be affected by an anime to commit a crime. Theres also people who have done it after watching real shows or even after watching sport. I dont think the shows are to blame.

Can it be bad...

*imagines a DBZ fan "powering up" in front of an oncoming 18wheeler thinking he can stop it*

Actually I think anything can be a bad influence in the media or even in life in general. It depends entirely on the person.

It can be over some of the weak-minded individuals anyway.

I personally view the usage of random Japanese words in an English sentence to be a horrible influence. In my mind somewhere I'm thinking, "This is it, the Japanese must be laughing at us right now..." I mean really. It's the scariest thing to hear people say something like, "That is so kawaii, ne?" >.< Stick to English if you're speaking English! It's not cool to add in a random words from another language!

Any other bad influences...I agree with the harem one. Many guys will be horribly disappointed I'm afraid. Also vice versa kind of because anime guys will spoil girls into thinking ALL guys are like that... If only...

I believe that influence depends on the person itself.

Overall i do enjoy harem anime, but it doesnt mean that i believe that many girls will sudenly like me or anything. Since i do know that im that cool or anything but just an average person.

Also i dont htink it would be strange for japanese to come into english words. If you think about it, Japan has been influenced completly by Americans so if u listen to things like songs, you will hear English words practically in every sentence.

It just depends on the person to see if they are influenced by things. If you are extremly obssesed into something, sure that may cause a problem later like that post above about a boy killing his parents. But ive seen the anime and really liked it, but i never even came close to the fact that humans are evil creatures (of course some are, but i dont care if it doesnt involve me)

yeah,, it can be bad for sure.. but in the same time, we should control our selves so it doesnt influence us.. i mean,, it depends on the person watching the anime right?? some ppl can control themselves.. i watch action anime but i dont go kill ppl ((duh)) i knw its wrong so i dont do it.. people should take there own responsiblities in their actions..
