Not to be a hater but I wonder what made Japan's perspective on what sells change so much.


If you want a timeline marker, it's when anime stopped being mainstream in Japan:
When it was on afternoon channels, manly action heroes were for the teen boys, and cute magical girls were for the girls.

Now that Japan has nationally and culturally demonized anyone who watches anime as "Horny Internet-addicted NEET perverts who drool over busty anime girls because they can't get the real thing", the industry has retreated into the corners, and either "gives its public what it wants", or wants what it gets.

(Although we should talk--
How did GI Joe, Thundercats and the Transformers suddenly turn into Adventure Time and Regular Show when US cartoons moved to cable?)

You enjoy watching manly men rather than girls?

Are you a homosexual?


Are you a pedophile?

I guess watching men's sports instead of women's sports makes me a homosexual too.

Well I don't mind, it's not like I'm gonna go to jail because of it. Contrary to people who are pedophiles because they watch moeblob anime with teenage girls... Right?

Men like cute things. There no such thing has being overdeveloped ! My female cousin when she was 12 is fucking taller than most men ! Now she like 14 and is taller than most male adults. My sister being 15 has bigger boob and better body than most 25 years old women could ever hope to get. underdeveloped ? What do you mean ? Like flat chested girls ? or being small in size ? I may get hate for this but I like girls who are flat chested I know is shocking. I also like girl who are a lot smaller than me in size. What I not allow to like small and cute things ?

Now this. This call having a change in preference. This is call a change in taste or fetish.

overdeveloped (or underdeveloped)


In a personal note. I couldn't give a flying fuck if it is kawaii/cute or manly. Has long has I get a well writing characters. I don't care nigga.


The incest :D

Moe was always there. You just may not have noticed it.




As old as the original Sailor Moon. Sailor Moon Moe comes from Hotaru ToMOE, a 12 year old girl, cute, vulnerable, makes audience feel needs protecting. She was sickly, her father Professor Suichi Tomoe aka the Mad Scientist make a deal with Pharaoh 90 from the Tau Nebula to save her after a lab explosion in return he took over their bodies, its a fascinating trivia fact!.

To be honest it has been trending on the softer side in recent years than it was in the nineties imo.

I have no preference over watching anime with manly men or any kind of teenaged girls and, like you said, you weren't talking to me. So I don't feel hurt or any type of way from your comment.

I just thought the comment, by itself, was ignorant and ridiculous. And it's worse when you read the question the OP actually asked.

the girly stuff has always been around. but I think its more prominent because that's what most anime fans eat up. I really don't see that kind of fan on this site but most people on this site like crap no matter what. im no expert, remember that

Not that I watch magical girl type shows or anything super kawaii, but I also have no interest in watching guys with godly super powers running around blowing up entire cities.

Give me a show like Steins's Gate or Bakemonogatari with believable characters. They are imperfect. They have their strong and weak points. They develop over time. Hell, I'll gladly watch Toradora before subjecting myself to something like DZ.
