Ummm... the description the first poster made is going too far. Not just for a show, but even for a post on a message board.

Remember, pscyhopathy is a disease. Many people don't even realize they have it... (until they rape/blow someone's brains out/etc. and feel no remorse and wonder why until a shrink sits them down).


As far as the issues dealt with... rape is fine if it's dealt with as an actual issue or problem for a character. Unless it is some kind of cheesy porn/hentai with the *THIS IS FOR FANTASY ONLY* jist about it, rape is NEVER something to be dealt with lightly.

As far as murder... there are plenty of anime series that deal with it in realistic ways. A big one that comes to mind is Monster. Other shows can deal with killing because they are fantasy or genre pieces, but I don't think a cold-blooded killer should ever be the hero of a show, the anti-hero, sure (think Lelocuh from Code Geass or Light from Death Note, both are killers but are not portrayed as being in the moral right, they always have a counter-balance, for Lelouch it is Suzaku and for Light it is L. Lelouch and Light might be the protagonists of the show, but they are both anti-heroes).

I don't think a show can go too far as long as it remains within the context of the shows story and characters. What i mostly hate are when shows do some completely random fanservice scene or storyline that has nothing to do with the actual story just for the sake of showing some boobs or some over the top violence etc.

As long as it remains in the spirit of the show heavy violence or sex scenes don't bother me. It'll irk me however if the show has been a certain way then they just throw in erotica for the ratings.

I've been a fan of shows like Violence Jack and Fist Of The North Star that have over the top violence and sex scenes and none of them ever bothered me. I knew what i was getting into when i started watching them.

Even in Elfen Lied with the child abuse scene i wasn't really thinking "omg that's so terrible this should be banned" i was more into the story and feeling sympathy for the character and the horrible stuff she went through.

I only care about certain aspects of anime such as plot, art style, and character development. Explicit content has no effect on me what-so-ever. Although there was one manga (wrong forum, I know) where, after reading it, I wanted to seriously jump out a window. For anyone here who has read Uzumaki, you can relate. That is good example of going a bit too far for me. Even though I read it to the end. (^_^")

Loli can go too far (usually when it's got rape involved), but most of it doesn't bother me, and incest is often hilarious (because it's being played for laughs).. but when incest, either real or assumed, is handled more realistically, like in Myself; Yourself, it's more sad than it is offensive.

Rape is usually bad, if it's dealt with seriously (as opposed to the old George Carlin bit: "Imagine Porky Pig raping Elmer Fudd.. See? Rape can be funny.") The rape scene in season 1 of Ikkitousen is the main reason I dropped it.. (The show being pretty much crap in all other respects didn't really help it any tho)

Guro falls into the "no, that's too much" category.. I don't especially care for a scene where someone crushes someone else's head and we see brains, bone, and blood gushing from between fingers, but it won't necessarily turn me away from a show. However, if that's followed by sexually violating the crushed remains, masturbating with the gore, etc.. that's too far, and if you enjoy that sort of thing, I'd seriously suggest seeking counseling as that is often a sign of sociopathy.


i actually like some comics that have a little rape in it but this is a huge but there is huge retribution at the end where the guy doing it is either killed or beaten the hell out of or if it's a big sis little bro.. but i am not going to go there because my fetishes are mine and mine alone. I do agree on gore though.... why people need to fap to goro porn is way beyond me, i don't mind gore at all being "american" we get exposed to the shit on the daily news for crying out loud but that's a little different. Ikkiousen to me wasn't that bad i just skipped most of it and to be honest the 1st season actually has a plot compared to the other watered down "yuri fest" seasons, agian I don't mind yuri but do porn of it, not a ball buster. If you have watched yousga no sora it has a incest ending and based off an adult visual novel "big surprise" but what struck me as odd even with the scenes of implied sex they still managed to pull it off. You can tell by my profile what kind of anime i like and don't and well i am not sure if higurashi is something that you would like, this aside the biggest to far in the anime/visual novel industry is where you played as rapist serial killer "I will not mention the games name not now, not ever" but you as the main character even go to the point of cutting two twins in half then sewing each half up together and proceeded to do things, i threw up, uninstalled it and formatted my hard drive. That's about as low as you can go, not even lotte's toy can go that low.
