Fate Zero, why have you allowed this Quasimoto octopus demon to murder small children episode after episode...

The intriguing part is, this aspect of Fate Zero is totally irrelevant from the plot. Sometimes I wonder what goes on in these writer's minds...

Have you noticed other things that anime gets away with that movies/shows with real people cannot?

I don't see why it matters

Everything that happened in Fate/Zero contributed to the overall plot imo, and why does it matter if children get murdered? Adult/Teens get murdered/killed in anime all the time, it's not like it's a new trend or something.

He's 4 years old and is attempting double homicide. but as Decaflatte said, it doesn't really matter since you have sexualization of "little kids" why can't those kids be murders/murdered.

It's incredibly relevant. You realize that all of the class characters were based on historical or mythic figures right? The thing Gilles de Rais(Caster),a real life historical figure and companion of Jeanne d'Arc, is primarily known for is being one of the earliest examples of a serial killer(at least in theory. there is some speculation that he could have been framed by the Duke of Brittany). He would lure in children and give them a grand old time, and then would turn around then tie them up and hang them from the ceiling and masturbate on them, then he would turn around again and comfort them afterwards saying he only wanted to play, and then finally after the child was comforted and relieved he would kill them in gruesome ways sometimes sitting on their chest and laughing at them in the face while they died. The whole story was so horrific that it is thought that Gilles de Rais was the inspiration for the classic fairy tale of Bluebeard.

The way caster killed those kids in Fate Zero was an accurate representation of the the historical figure the character was based on.

^ pretty much.

I am pretty sure if anything the Fate series has done to put information at your face was, that the characters are historical figures.

There appears to be a general consensus that I was somehow eluding to an issue of morality that obstructs the creative freedom of the show to implore any means necessary to gain an audience... While the defensive arguments are intriguing, that was far from my intent

I find it curious that anime utilizes unnerving events in a way where Hollywood must exercise extreme scrutiny. My personal feelings on whether or not children should be murdered for the sake of entertainment are entirely irrelevant from this topic.

Asahinalnu, thank you for the history lesson. Perhaps my statement of the content being entirely irrelevant from the plot was rather all-inclusive. King Arthur is being portrayed as a female, so it does seem up to the writers to determine the content that moves the plot and in this way, killing children could have or could have not been a driving force in the story. As far as the larger plot structure, this is little more than a historical aside as you've so eagerly pointed out. Yes, it was used to facilitate yet another fight scene, however I would argue that anime has accomplished the facilitation of fight scenes time and time again without killing children.

BACK ON TOPIC

Has anyone noticed other aspects of anime that capitalize on the surrealism of the art?

Yeah. In fact I think one of the areas(of many) where the Zero anime outshone Stay Night was in a more thoroughly researched depiction of the Class characters. Stay Night seemed to just use a bunch of name drops without much detail and a with a much cheesier character design, don't know if that was different in the original VN, but hopefully the anime remake is much better.

Speaking of murdering children, time to tab back to the Umineko no naku koro ni VN that I happened to be reading when I saw this thread. "Uu uu!!"

Baccano! does some pretty horrible things but manages to do it in a way that has you grinning the whole time...

also, yeah, obviously an animated medium will have more freedom to do things that live action cannot. From showing torture or murder or nudity, these shows are able to get away with more because these aren't real people...

As soon as the first kid died in Fate/Zero, I thought to myself: "I'm going to like this show." It was such an amazing character introduction. It told us immediately what kind of sick bastard we're going to be dealing with.

This is one of the things that drew me to anime. Not child death in particular but their willingness to push the boundaries. If a show can truly shock me then I am happy. The prime example of this being Elfen Lied.

back when i used to watch anime via funimations youtube i remember catching an episode of Noir (can't remember the specific ep) that blew up a car (or was it a house) that some kids and their mom just entered. the comments was well occupied and many dropped the show

i don't think that this really bothers me to the point where i drop shows. i figure as along as its appropriate (that doesnt sound right) and not overly obnoxious then im fine
