Specific characters you hate to see sexualized.
Posted 6/2/14
i'd prefer specific characters rather than blanket categories such as "lolis" or "shotas"

I'm curious if i'm the only one who experiences this, so I thought i'd make a thread where people can discuss it.

Are there some characters that you just hate to see sexualized? Perhaps because you look at them similar to a younger sister / brother or a daughter / son. Or perhaps you respect them as a character and hate to see them reduced to eye candy.

This can be either through the images that companies put out (such as swimsuit pics and dakimakuras) or through specific anime standards such as panty-shots or the "beach episode." Or maybe its just from the dialogue you hear other people using about these characters.

I'm not saying that I have anything against the people that do this... Its a pet peeve of mine, but to each their own...

Squid Girl is one for me personally. She's just so adorable like a little sister.
Menma from Anohana is another. I mean... really? Come on now... How could you T_T

Am I the only one who feels this way? If not, feel free to post your examples~

Interesting. I'm not familiar with Bleach, but after reading a little bit about her backstory, she does seem like quite a well-flushed out character, so I feel like I can understand that.

Basically any character in any anime, although I don't really HATE it because I can just ignore it. I just think that it's useless and brings down anime.

Don't even get me started on that shit...
I can't look up one picture of Lambo or Reborn without seeing some violent yaoi involving them...

Hehehe.


Unfortunately for this discussion, it is like... well any discussion really. Everyone has different levels of what is and isn't acceptable.

The particular bit you referenced didn't bother me, because they were all in swimsuits. Swimsuits are fine, hell in their underwear is fine. I don't care the age because its normal.

NOW if they were naked and only wearing towels like other anime usually do when it comes to Hot Springs, that might be pushing it a bit, especially given the age of Chino (the other girls are all in high school at least)

I will grant that (even for my tastes) the characters of Gochiusa are treated rather tastefully overall. But those swimsuits...something about it just doesn't seem quite right to me. They don't seem to fit their personalities to me. Plus the whole scenario just seems unnecessary considering the setting.

But that's just me. As I said, its just a pet peeve and I don't have anything against it, really...
