I understand your point but if you don't like it so much, stay off japan's head and STop reading and watching it. It's REALLY just that simple.

I've mentioned in earlier post this was my opinion of what would happen in America i even mentioned that japan wouldn't change... read my earlier post before saying things...


I also know what i can do by stopping support those i'm not going to stop all together because i do enjoy it wish there was a better system so i could avoid them but there really isn't and i even linked to examples as well as said i don't know if these have rape in them i'm going off comments, but i tend to avoid anything with drama or at least dark type of drama so i do what you said above and mentioned it many times in my post.

If your really concerned about a series go to a site like mangaupdates they have detailed tags on pretty much all manga series. If it has rape or anything of that nature it will be tagged. Same for smut, adult etc.

Well you see it in popular media, i.e. Movies, shows, etc. it's just not manga. It happens in real life so why not portray it in manga? If you like reading ecchi, then you're going to run across it. If you don't like it then stop reading dirty manga.

Elf... i will start checking that site out from now on before reading thank you for your input there... i said i'm new to reading manga i don't know what tages mean etc... i've watched anime for a while and i know how to avoid them just the reading which i judge stuff before it actually it even happens because i go by the comments and as soon as i see the word mentioned i move on just sucks because all the ones that look interesting end up dark... but that's just what is popular over in japan they are the main ones buying it so i understand why its found i don't agree and i have the right to not agree.. but i don't actually read these... im pissed because everything has some sort of dark side to it and i hate that...

I'm actually tired of this already i started this like i said in previous post as a vent session after spending and hour trying to find something to read and all the comments had some sort of ntr or rape most of them just had ntr but i lump them in one big group of things i avoid... this is my issue i wanted to see if anyone felt the same way guess not i guess im just the strange one that hates this crap...

Also i linked the two that i wanted people to compare and they had the same tags... that first one wasn't ecchi at all in my opinion if you compare it to others... they don't show mature on the tags and i thought that if it was showing sex, etc. it had to have mature but i was wrong i just recently figured that out most of the time i just read whats coming out go on wiki look up if that doesn't have anything i look up the manga and if i can't find that i wait until it comes out and watch the first episode... that is how i watch anime.

No Longer Human was an excellent manga that used manga to really drive home the despair and horrible world in that manga.

Im wondering what exactly you define as rape. So far, the only series ive seen that had actual rape (man using physical force to sexually assault a woman) was valvrave. That was pretty shocking, but it had a point. The guy wasn't in control, it was the AI system doing it (wanting to experiment) and the guy felt so horrible afterwards he proposed to take responsibility. The situation wasn't taken lightly, and like I said its only one that actually had it. There are some that have guys trying to force themselves on a girl, usually only to have their butts kicked/killed by the hero of the story. Considering the tens of thousands of manga titles, I cant imagine rape exists in more than 1-2 percent of the titles (barring genres that are based on it)

Seikon no qwser had rape (at least the manga) and Magi slightly had rape as well... I think some mentioned that the manga Ibitsu (not the horror one) had rape as well but i can't really tell... And then there's the h-doujins.

I mentioned a while back that i made a mistake i should have made the heading rape or ntr.. i lump them both together i understand that is misleading... i usually go down the list of the romance manga and click around on pictures that look interesting sometimes they are dark sometimes they aren't i avoid the dark ones just pisses me off to see so many with either of the two above... i think any is too much i'm very picky when it comes to what i read and watch i like light hearted stuff that never gets too serious.. i don't like it when they throw sex in the manga and well with anime i'm able to avoid that pretty easy... I know that not everyone is like me prob. more not than are i'm sure... i do think that some of these just take a real sadist turn but i normally can tell early on if they are going to be more serious or not ... i wish people would read all of my post before making comments asking me questions i feel i've mentioned earlier this was me being pissed because one of the ones i thought would be interested turned out to have a darker side... so i got on here to bitch.

I'm over it now i've had time to calm down and i'll be checking out the site mentioned earlier i've seen it before when i was looking up stuff but just thought it as a wasted click... i might add i have been classified with mild bi-polar i have meds. this switches me in that mode its not fun i have to avoid them at all cost because i really want to hurt people when i get pissed.

I do not think I have read any manga where rape is involved unless you look at h-doujins. The thing is though, just like in movies and tv shows, manga can use rape to portray the dark and inhumane side of humans that exist. If done right it can make the reader feel emotions it has never felt while reading a manga even if it is an uncomfortable and disgusting feeling.

NTR on the other hand is completely different and should not be in a serious manga.

I think rape is used to emphasize the tone of the situation, like some scenes in BTOOOM! and Berserk. Some series just add sex for some twisted sense of humor, such as the case in Vagabond. Sure, rape is not the only way to put a female character in a dire situation, but it does give real life emotion in the series.

I'm just assuming by manga/anime you mean H-manga/Hentai because it doesn't pop up that often at all in normal anime/manga

Also rape is a valid and powerful character building tool when used correctly, meaning the exact opposite way it's used in h-manga.

9.5/10, OP's comparison of all manga to h-manga made me want to run a few miles

Rape happens. And the only time I can think of rape being used for anything other than h-manga (if you know rape is a trigger for you why are you looking at rape tagged h-manga?) it's to add some sort of plot, or to add onto a person's emotions. Just because in the dialogue it says "she got raped" or "he got raped" doesn't mean they're literally showing the person get raped and I'm not sure how that makes it bad. No one is sitting there jacking off because the dialogue says "she hates men because she was molested," or something like that. I mean, I think of manga like Bitter Virgin, and the fact that you'd say anyone who reads manga with rape in it is sick kind of makes me angry. Rape is a struggle, and it can be used as such in plot. A main character can overcome tragic experiences.

The reason for that is because Japan likes that stuff. Mostly in the US people like whores, but in Japan they prefer raping women instead. I rather dislike both outlooks, but Japan is the worse of those. I have heard some of these things stem from severe repression laws of some kind, so they find any way they can to basically go nuts. Probably most or all of your adult series over there have that, but what sucks is that it invades even mainstream series, so it's almost impossible to completely avoid. The most recent series I watched that veers into this territory once or more would be Sword Art Online, and no I'm not joking. So good luck avoiding all of it, and boycotting rape fantasy manga/anime is useless because there are a lot of people in Japan that support that genre. So just try to avoid all your series and avoid what unpleasant material you can, and be thankful that at least the manga/anime isn't real and doesn't look it either.
