A OK in my book. I have no difficulties separating cartoons from reality.

Well, technically, there have been a handful of threads like this in the past. Things are just going in circles and being rehashed and such.

Honestly though, I'd rather have a more active arena and a lot of people having fun than a few pissy people wagging their fingers on very frivolous things.

I agree, but the other lolicon thread is still on the first page of the forums...do we really need two threads on the exact same topic going at the same time?

Full disclosure: I've never waded into the other one, and would kind of like to see discussion of other things besides this topic take its place.

This will eventually die. That's the nature of these things. Being in an objective business view and social media, it's probably makes more sense to just like the actvity go on until it's dead.

Some people might be that OCD forum cleanliness where they just want to see things neatly stack and have "serious" discussions, but let's be honest. This place was designed to net in other people to keep people's eyes on crunchyroll; to go away from that point to appease a minority of people's prefences is just a bad move.

If this place is actually making a real difference at a consistent manner, then sure why not lay out the red carpet to optimize the effect. Although, since it isn't and this is most likely a playground for Anime fans to "discuss" things like Japanese, just let the activity roll.

Tbh, I don't really care either way. Like I said, not a discussion I care to chime in on. I was just interested in pointing out the silliness. Cause silly things are fun!

It makes me uncomfortable tbh to watch any anime were the male is twice as tall as the girl. But if the male and female are close in height, I can live with it. Can live with both but will probably avoid watching anything with extremely short girls as the romantic interest. Anime doesn't do much about the face, it's like different hair and height. They are almost all drawn the same lol except the extremes of no boob and big boobs.



I also find this kind of face ^ incredibly sexy .. those cheekbones, that chin. Not sure who she is thou.

Like has already been said, I think it is a matter of definition.
1. Thinks little girls (or those who look and act like little girls) are adorable, but no sexual attraction/acts - no problem
2. Thinks little girls (or those who look and act like little girls) are adorable, with sexual attraction/acts - BIG problem

I think this is why I have a love/hate relationship with the some series other people love. It really icks me when they include scenes of adult/close to adult characters doing sexual things with little girls who are obviously little girls.

I'm with Rito2Ru, anime needs more MILFs.

I get a bit confuse, when people say they lolicon it is when someone that finds little underage girls attractive... attractive in the sense of "wow she's sooo cute and adorable!" and not in the sense of "wow I wanna bang her prepubescent brains out!", but isn't that just moe? so whats the difference?

Lolicons disturb me. It is incredibly disturbing and creepy how this style of character sexualizes a little/young girl, or draws a grown woman in a diminutive, pro-pedophilia way.

The problem is that many newer animes/mangas blur the line between loli and cute - I think they do this in an attempt to make themselves less obvious, and more "acceptable"; when I am pretty sure their intentions are otherwise.

It is not "cute" to see a woman acting like a little girl both in mannerisms and looks. It is not "cute" to see a child character being drawn or acting in a suggestive way no matter how subtle. It is not adorable when a child character makes certain faces/noises. It is not appealing when a grown woman is nothing more than a kawaii-blob.

It is things like this which should not be accepted nor condoned. The public/anime crowd should be be conditioned into thinking it is okay for little girls and women to be shown in this way.

What makes it sick is how lolicon and even moe (quite often) merges childlike imagery/undeveloped body types with erotic, sexual undertones. Even if the body is not underdeveloped, the overall aesthetic quality of the image is this.

Innocence and sweetness is one thing. Being naive is one thing. But when you're acting like a child and looking like one, not out of immaturity, but out of a certain, creepy appeal - that is where the problem lies.

Moe definitely crosses the line into this type of thing many a time. It seems to have become more "naturalized" among the anime/manga crowd - something which should have never happened in the first place. Not only that, but more and more characters nowadays have personalities based off of how "cute" and "moe" they are - which are not character traits whatsoever. Honestly: what happened to the good old days of actual personality and characterization? Now the modern manga and anime throws these things away in favor of lolicon and kawaiiness!

If any other country but Japan did this, it would be condemned. I mean...Come on. Japan is the country where hardcore lolicon and shotacon porn is available out there in the public in certain stores. That is just not...Normal.

This lolicon garbage, and moe-blob characterization is just fueling closet pedophilia.

Edit: The classic book, Lolita (which I'm sure has something to do with how lolicon...ism, was coined), is about a prepubescent/tween girl named Lolita who is raped and molested continuously by the older man, Humbert Humbert. Make of that what you may.


To clear up the Confusion a bit I not-so-humbly offer this from the lolicon PSA thread.

http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-838619/lolicon-psa-an-in-depth-analysis?pg=22#45760523

Soldier Sangeria perhaps Lolicon IS feeding closet pedophilia. What's you're answer? if the words, ban, censor, sanctions etc. are included anywhere in your response I'm afraid then I will have to oppose that response firmly. Not because I'm a fan of loli-porn but because It's cartoons and we are getting into the issue of freedom of thought.

I may not like the thoughts of some tran-phobic sob. who gives me dirty looks on the subway. but as long as we both do whatever jobs we have and he doesn't take it to the physical. I have no right to impose my beliefs on him. distasteful as it may be I will defend the right of non-child molesters to think lascivious thoughts about children. Because that's still the better option than empowering some kind of thought police.

Oh god now we really ARE repeating the Lolicon PSA thread. I invite you to read it. 40 pages of should we, shouldn't we with shouts of
'lolicon aint bad!' from the bleachers.

One of our amazing Loli-Sensei's is tired of these threads.
