Police officers can be very nice and they are regular people just like you and I, but nonetheless some of them have teenage girls who watch anime and watch episodes here and there and introduce them to the phenomenon. It's silly to think that one group of people wouldn't watch

I mean police officers need to look and be tough. There is an idea in non-anime society that men have to be tough and powerful, which is supported by the media. However, there are anime that is filled with tons of moe. I would not think that the typical American would think the police officer is tough anymore if he was watching cute characters doing cute things. Like a non-anime watcher friend of mine, he jokingly said that he needed to punch a wall from watching a youtube video about puppies.



I just can't agree with this. The media doesn't determine what things are, it's up to the individual to do that. You can't just underestimate a tough person for watching something cute. That person might enjoy it, but that doesn't mean the person can't easily stomp your face in.

Not everyone has an open mind like us. The media may not determine what things are, but it definitely has an influence on society.

Well Police Officers requires to him or her to seem powerful against criminals. Criminals would fear a well-built officer, but a criminal would more likely resist an otaku law enforcer.

Okay, now officially I have to question how stupid this can get. Pretty sure it is beyond stupid. I know 30 year old males who were/are in the military and watch anime. Some would say they are more tough than police officers. I watch anime, but that doesn't mean I'm not tough or weak or that people don't listen to me. For you to generalize that police don't watch is to generalize men as only liking women, absolutely false and unfathomable. Some men like women, some men like men, and some men like both just like some police watch anime and some don't.

This post is full of truth. It's completely wrong to justify someone of their profession.

I doubt that there is any correlation between occupation and anime viewership. At least to the extent that a certain occupation would never watch it. There are people of all types in all occupations.
