why is it that we in america cant have blood shown in anime or no bad words ...even the animes on adult swim doesnt show blood or cuss...but there are shows like the boondocks(which is awesome by the way)....and why do parents complain about animes that show blood and things......and if they do is that how a anime/show gets canceled .....


Because some parents feel it is the networks moral obligation to show only "wholesome" shows to their kids and can't be arsed to police their own TV themselves. The networks also fear litigation from these parents and FCC complaints.

Yeah, it's pretty much a raw deal. Parents get panicy and picky over stuff like that. But I mean, if the show has a warning before it airs, then it has that little box up in the corner that says something like PG13... then... it's kind of their own fault.

But also, kids are really dumb most of the time, and think cartoons are real. You can't really win either way.

I saw one example of this.

Space Warriors, which is the Americanized version of the movie of the 1981 TV anime Baldios, had most of its violent scenes cut (the Aldebaron fighters directly attacking Earthling civilians, for instance). The movie was marketed towards children (despite most of its mature content and themes!).

I was amused by the dubbing and the renaming of certain characters (like most US localizations at the time, it was crap. Trust me).


"OH FUC- There's a little speck of blood there, erase it! Lets market these to lil' kids dispite the fact that there's many mature themes!"

it's simple America was founded by religious prudes and their beliefs were installed into the working of the American system; which was then installed into the minds of every American parent approximately at the founding of America years ago which was passed on to generation after generation until you come to the last generation, namely those between 8-21ish(differing from person to person by a year or so) who are finally realizing that we are being brainwashed to believe that our bodies are dirty and that the idea of any fluid (blood, semen, bial, snot, etc) exiting the body is an act that whether or not happens is disgusting and should be erased from the consciousness of television which should be used to pass on the beliefs of the prudes not of "kids who have been influenced by the violence on tv, and not the violence shown in every day life".
Back to the point, thus when a show which has these on is shown those currently holding the power cancel it. And those with power appoint people that think like them to places of power thus keeping the beliefs that are passed from gen. to gen. in the current system ruining the chances for us. Thus if you want to watch your fav. anime get out of this annoying religious country (which I don't have tooo many problems with) and move to Japan where you can find anything you want and not be ridiculed,...........so long as you are not an otaku high school student.
Thus ends my rant.....if i annoyed you sorry but I'm happy to have ranted
bwahhahahahha

...Actually if I think about most people learn more violence from the economy around them not the shows they watch and besides even if they say that I can guarantee you won't find a real bladed weapon that isn't stainless steel unless you pay a lot of money. Guns are probably much easier to come bye but you would need a permit.

sometimes they don't even pick the more dangerous like at this library I go to there had fake up to volume four and I think that the main reason the stop getting them was that someone complained about it there were also peach girl books there including one that dealed with way more difficult subject matter then Fake( the last volume of fake not included)
