I can't really tell over the internet, but I hope you're not claiming that I disagree with what you're saying. You're saying it as if I don't know that they're unhealthy aswell. It's common sense, mate. The only girls I talk to are more on the thick side, I can't stand arms that look like I could snap them off by accident.


So then what do you think of One Piece? The waists could break off!

I just hope nobody hugs them. The top half of their body would get separated.

There is a manga I'm reading and it's about a chubby girl and it's so cute! A really cute guy ends up falling for because he likes a full figured woman than an anorexic stick.

Really, I would perfer to see anime girls where they are full figured but not actually FAT like obese. I mean when I want to cosplay as some girl from an anime I have the feel that I'm not "skinny" enough to cosplay them even though they are impossible skinny. Plus when they are too skinny they end up looking like little girls instead of young ladies or women.

Am I really an ignorant person if I believe being overweight and " living a healthy lifestyle " shouldn't be in the same sentence? I don't think I am.. I mean im overweight ( not by a ton ) and I know why I am... im not living a healthy lifestyle... i don't try and put the blame on something else.

I see, because I too couldn't tell over the internet that you were gonna run away with what you said about fat girls.

The problem is the media keeps harping on us about being healthy, yet they shove down our throats those women as you describe them as the norm. Then they tell all the young girls that this is what they're supposed to look like in order to be "relevant", including getting tramp stamps and pericings and even boob jobs with that wafer thin frame of theirs.

Assuming your point is valid, young girls are surrounded by women with normal, healthy bodies, but believe what they are told by the media instead. If that is the case, they must respect the opinions of the media more than those of the people they see every day.

You say the problem is the media, but is this the fault of the media? Who taught them to place their respect in the media instead of thinking for themselves or looking to their family and friends for answers?

I do agree that it would not be a bad thing for the media to cast people or draw characters with more normal appearances - not just in terms of weight, but general attractiveness. It's just easier though, to get the emotional effect you want in media when you make the character you want the audience to like good looking and the one you want them to hate bad looking, than it is to show through their actions that they are good or bad. It's the same thing in politics, if you research the effect of appearance since the advent of televised political campaigns.

Even so, I'm not sure the media has that much effect on the overall population. I see plenty of women that aren't fat and don't look to be starving out there. All I would change is try to encourage more of them to exercise some, since that's rather important for health.

An anime about fat people wouldnt really sell. Its just the way people are, even if the anime is really good. With todays anime audience, the only fat they wanna see is the fat in large tits and a nice round ass.........for example

To be honest Ive never seen an anime where the protagonist is a fat girl that saves people and things like that.


Who would want to watch a fat girl for entertainment?

If you take it in context, my point is that I don't see all that many girls that are so skinny as to suggest malnourishment, so the suggestion that the media is brainwashing a significant portion of the population into starving themselves is, to my eyes, a bit hard to believe.

It is possible, I admit, that the media is in fact doing so but that I simply don't have anything to do with people that are so easily manipulated.

Possibly I am being overly generous to the population in assuming they are as little influenced by the media as I am.
Perhaps I should ask the women I work with if they are malnourished and have tramp stamps... that could turn out badly though.
