I was having a conversation with my friend the other day. He used to watch anime years ago but now I asked him recently about whether he still watches anime or not and he tell's me that he doesn't like anime anymore because it degrades women?
What are your opinions on this matter? (I'll give mine later, I'm too tired atm to write more :3)

Not the hentai I watch. I mean, maybe Taimanin Asagi and Kangoku Senkan off the top of my head.

it took 1 minute for this to be reported

I don't want to be inferred as an inconsiderate ass but…

95% of hentais tag with rape is not rape. It portrays women as slaves of lust and can't live without a male.

note: I am simply answering the topic to the best of my ability and a hentai is a form of anime.

depends on the series

there are plenty of examples where the answer is pretty much yes

but there are also plenty where it's an emphatic No.



I defy anyone to say a character like Erza Scarlett from Fairy Tail is degrading to women.

I think in some respects it has, and continues to be, degrading to women. Though on the flip side, you see a lot of strong female leads too that aren't big titty, blonde, brainless, and baring their bodies to everyone like it's going out of style.

Depends. I'd say that some do but most don't. Some genres are more likely to have it than others

no i mean the girls are erotic but no homo so are the guys like that arent fat otaku. they make the appearances sexy for both gender and it also depends on the genre because animes can make males and females lusty so if theres anything that "degrades woman" it mostly likely the same for males. you got your good and your bad but wel that doesnt stop me from watching anime everyday (:

School Days degrades women, but then again they degrade themselves in that show.

You friend has not been watching the right anime.

Strong females have been around in anime for a while. Here are some characters with series, and just some series that have stong female characters, but can be bothered to look of the names on my phone:

Misa & Milia from Macross

Priss & Sylivia from Bubblegum Crisis/Crash

Gunsmith Cats

Taiga from Tora Dora

Akane & Shampoo from Ranma 1/2

Problem Children from Earth are Coming

Your friend just watches too much hentai and you need to introduce him to the other great types of anime. Sit him down with Gunsmith Cats and see what he thinks is degrading about that anime.

If he still has issues, ask him how he thinks he messures up to Tony Stark in Iron Man. If your friend is a millionaire playboy I guess he is doing fine, but I'm guessing he is not.

Does anime as a whole degrade women? No. Miyazaki writes great female characters.

Are there titles and genres that do? Yes. I'm generally not interested in those.

Blanket statements bother me.

There are some animes that are degrading to women and some that are not.

It's times like these where I'm reminded of the Bechdel test.

1.) It has to have at least two women in it,
2.) who talk to each other,
3.) about something besides a man.

Not saying it's perfect. Girl's High passes this test yet the whole show is panty shots.
