im so sorry i started this thread. It was originally in chit chat forum. I was just trying to make conversation in the chit chat forum but it got moved to anime section of the forum. ...........I agree let others worry about this


I say agree to disagree and lets get this behind us. We all friends. Im sorry. We can just enjoy the coming season of Fate/Kaleid


Don't worry about it. I was just having fun since these kind of threads come up pretty often. But from what I can gather is you like Kaleid. And any fan of Kaleid is a friend of mine.

Man, lurking this thread is...

Anyway, you don't need to be sorry for starting the thread OP. It's something that people can discuss. Personally, i don't feel wrong watching it...guess it just never bothered me.

Summer, you say. Well there is yet still time then.


Yeah and each season is only 10 episodes. So it shouldn't take you too long.

hey guys, how's it goin'?


tell you the truth I just wanted to hear opinions on the matter Its not a big deal or anything. Wondering if I should feel guilty watching Highschool DxD. Actually I am ok with it except for the lolis



If it makes you feel any better, Koneko might be around 100. She was Rias's second servant. I think Yuuto became one 10-20 years ago; Gaspar's flashback looked to be pre-WWII possibly even 19th century.

Even at 16 she'd be of age on most of the planet. Most of the "underage" characters would actually be over the age of shazam, since 18+ is freakishly uncommon as an age of consent.

I'm in an odd place as far as that goes as it really depends more on the appearance of the character than their given age (assuming, of course, that the age/appearance gap itself isn't really obviously absurdly problematic). If the character looks obviously young and is sexualized then, yeah, it does bother me.

Well you might miss out on a lot of good titles that way.

yea i skip over the heavy series. so i never seen the the titles you have listed.

um if i know its loli then i'll won't pay attention to it. but yea after watching anime for a long time you feel desensitize of it and it feels normal, part of it is because its not real that makes you feel its ok but then when you connect to it then all of a sudden you feel like its messed up.

there are plenty of good series that have fan service stuff in there that actually makes it better, not specifically anime but we have a bunch of emotions for different things and i think that going after sex isn't bad its just messed up when its children, but if theres a story to be told then i wouldn't mind sitting through it.

I would feel wrong not watching it.


The creators put a lot of hard work behind it, we have to honor their dedication and passion.

That's not how writing works. I'd be very surprise if a writer looked at his/her storyboard and all of a sudden and said, "I don't feel like putting any dialogue here, so I'll just put in a scene where the protagonist falls into the heroine's breasts." Have you tried writing a story? Not for a class or anything like that either, but from your own thoughts? I can tell you from my own experience that it's fun, but very challenging. It's not something a lazy person can stick with for very long.

You might want to read ToLoveRu Darkness :P. All it is, is the protagonist falling into girls breasts.

It's not though. Don't get me wrong, I'm aware its mostly fanservice. However, that's not all it contains.
