what do you consider to be violent it all varies from person?


How dare you expose our precious snowflakes to your crude brainwashing? They're perfectly happy being told what to think and how to feel without having to decide for themselves, thank you very much.

People mature and get tired of the Kiritos anime and friendship anime, new ultraviolent series emerge from time to time, just look at Goblin Salyer. If it get animated it will be censored.


Honestly, I see those who move toward ultraviolent series are those who haven't yet matured enough to move past them.

??? There's some modern anime that are pretty violent. Drifter's is one example, made by the guy who made Hellsing.


It's a good bet there is still a good chunk of violent anime out there. There's just so much more anime that it's harder to see.

I hope we get more, yes, but I hope some of the newer style of anime/manga stays.

Has ultraviolence really been that common in the past compared to now? Psycho Pass ramped up the graphic violence in the first season to pretty good effect, the anime with the roach men from Mars was pretty much all ultra-violence behind some of the worst censoring to come out in recent memory, and Death Parade seemed to be about the shock violence (I only watched the first episode). And I'm assuming the upcoming Hell Girl will be in the same vein of detailed violence.


Their making a new "Hell Girl"?

It's nice to see another diminutive creature capable of unparalleled devastation around here.

I don't know how many times I've watched "Monty Python and The Holy Grail". It never gets old to me.

I don't think there is less violent popular anime, or even less violent dark (and depressing?) popular anime, just more anime of other types that actually gets outside of Japan. Think about how many of the anime you are thinking of and over what period of time they were in and then compare it to today. As far as violent anime in just the last 10 (actually less) years, just off the top of my head, there is Attack on Titan, Berserk, Drifters, Parasyte, Deadman Wonderland, and Black Bullet. If you are saying dark and depressing, you still have Berserk, Deadman, and Black Bullet. There have been many more, I can't necessarily remember them immediately.

Edit:
Also, there have been some violent and dark/depressing anime that maybe would have been popular outside Japan if they were one of only a few anime to get outside of Japan, but ended up not being popular because there was such a larger volume of anime available.

Nope. It's a market, and, as such, it goes where the money is.

Which so happens to be lewd figurines of that kawaii waifu from such and such anime.

I dream of the day it shifts back to that kind of material and more away from moe and weird loli stuff. I know that kind of stuff will always be around but shows like Drifters gave me small amounts of hope.
