Post Reply is incest neccesary for a anime story?
Posted 8/27/15 , edited 8/27/15
I was going to say something offensive towards people who like incest but....meh. Whatever! as long as it is not rape (which is 99% the case with incestuous relationships) I don't care.

Does an anime need it? no.

Well nothing in anime is necessary. I like watching some incest every now and then, its that forbidden love that I enjoy watching sometimes. Like Yosuga no Sora or kissxsis.

Who knows but I have only heard/read the same story: most incest incidents happen by the adult manipulating, forcing or raping the child. There are many people who have been sexually abused in their childhood by family members, I know someone who was raped by her brother for many years, and others by their fathers, cousins etc.

This is the reason why I'm against incest because most of it happens by abusing an innocent child. This is not a fantasy like anime incest is, reality is cruel. http://www.theatlantic.com/national/archive/2013/01/america-has-an-incest-problem/272459/

I have never heard of a healthy incestuous relationship where both parties were about the same age and gradually fell in love. It always starts with sexual abuse.

I see all this as only a fiction.
The same way in mecha anime, teens are chosen to pilot the mecha. From a purely rational and legislatif point of view, children are force to become soldiers, which is against many international laws. But nobody cares because it's just a silly trope in a work of fiction, nobody accuses anime of promoting the use of children in war, no more than incestuous relations.

lol nope not always. You've never heard of a healthy one? Well then that negative mentality must be blocking those out because it seems to happen a lot too. Love isn't a fantasy, even in the real world there are healthy ones, not always abuse. A friend of mine is around the same age as his sister and they live alone together and are actually dating.

Well, yours fall in the 1%

I know love is not a fantasy and incest is not a fantasy either but I meant to say that the romantic incest you see in anime is a fantasy, not reality. Kudos to your friend but that story doesn't mean anything against all the other stories. Also, I was never talking about love.

My "negative mentality" (I call it realistic) comes from all my friends' experiences, biographical novels I have read because I want to be a social worker someday, and the statistics I have found in google. There's also the 'Stockholm' syndrome where you love your captor, some abused children fall in love with their abusers but it doesn't make it any less wrong.

So, let's agree to disagree.

Its definitely not 99%, that's insanity. I think the realistic way to look at it is to see the good and bad, I know there's alot of bad, alot of good too. Definitely not 1%.

I don't have time for this, if you care to read my other posts you would know that my views have nothing to do with fantasy....which is what most people here only care about.

Ok, let's change it to: less than half of incest incidents were not caused by rape.

I actually read that from an article.

Oh? When did I come into the general discussion forums? Let's keep this to anime, and not bring in wild, baseless statistics, that aren't relevant to the topic.
