what my spammy posts?

I can answer that....

repeating the names of your favourite characters in 2 or more seperate posts after earlier asking people to 'get off topic'. doesn't matter if the character names were mentioned in a different context, it was an obvious cut & paste job. I don't know why this thread is even on a website like this, now that i think about it......

not children of anything in particular, i'm no cult leader.

just children in general. Basically, if there were ANY truly mature individuals in this world, we would not let our politicians, etc do the things they do.

I would not have to answer stupid questions.....

I adore anime as does my wife but we both freely admit some things they take a teensy bit too far :-p

Ah well at least I know the difference between that and life right?

I'm kind of thinking you have probably watched one anime, ever.

Plenty of animes have characters of varying body size.

Nothing wrong with cosplay...we've done it. The point is so long as it stops after the costume is off then there is no danger

fair enough, it was a joke tho
I organise raves with some friends & I secretly wish that we were throwing these parties in japan & a bunch of cosplayers would rock up in costume and hit the dancefloor to some dirty dnb or some intense psytrance....ahhh...it would be awesome...

japanese cosplayers have the best costumes. a costumed rave in japan would surely be the best costumed rave in the world.
IMHO.

I find anime every enjoyable but when i look at some north american cartoons for some reason i find it sick and disgusting, i dont if the style or something eles bothers me with it, the only north american anime style type cartoon i did enjoy last year was avatar the last air bender.

I thought that was a fresh start, no i dont like ben10, i enjoyed watching anime as a kid and still do, however when it comes to western catroons i dont enjoy them at all like i said i find them disgusting.

Looks to me, like y'all been watching the wrong anime...


-Lunk is a prime example of a hefty guy.
The Mospeda folks are all soldiers, so you'd expect them to be fit.


-No huge heads there



-all sorts of japanese physiques being trained here. Ok, they're not main characters, but this usually is a show about highschool -uhm- mercenaries...

I think, that's mainly because western cartoons are produced to sell stuff.
Asian anime is usually produced first, and merchandise generated afterwards.
(except weird stuff like Yogi-Oh, Pokemon, etc.)

Anime characters are thin, because that is the predominant view of Japanese women, and that is THE way to be beautiful in Japan.

Mainly because the animators want there characters this way especially large breasted young slim girls who usually act innocent. It's mainly a reflection ion the individual artist. However there is also the simple fact that it is easier to draw a small skinny perfect girl than a overweight large girl who would be more realistic. also the simple fact would you rather watch an anime with super hot cute little girls in and Muscle’y guys who have epic fights than an anime with meh girls and scrawny guys who can't even pick up a brush never mind a sword or weapon? Also drawing and animating realistic facial tones spots Greece blackheads etc is rather hard unless you have billions of pounds to spend on unprecedented C.G.I technology.

Having read all the posts in this thread I have to say a few things.

1. Its not bad to like anime characters (think there Hawt.) because that’s what the animators intend in the first place.

2. Cosplay is awesome I have done it. I have a cosplay of a giant Totoro ( a giant blue bear sort of thing from Hiyo miyazaki’s my neighbour totoro. although it's not so giant on me only being 5ft 7) and mainly it's about having fun doing it. Of course some people take it more seriously than others but then again that always happens.

3. if you want to know about any good animes just ask me i collect them have over 100 different animes and have watched far more.

3. Western animation does seem to be geared around selling first as suggested. however that doesn’t mean that eastern animation isn't made to sell things. for instance games get made into animes (Final Fantasy Pokemon Digimon, dot hack etc) and companies sometimes make animes to sell there stuff like the popular vocaloid programs. it hard not to hear about Hatsune miku Rin or Len to name a few of the program mascots in Japan, and I have recently heard that after having released games key chains plushies cosplay’s and so much more (some stuff that even I find strange.) they are now releasing an anime based on the vocaloid game featuring the biggest vocaloid character and my fave character Hatsune miku. Also you usually get but loads of sponsors just after the opening credits and before the anime starts or after the ending credits have ended. (most popular are Bandai Sony Mc Donalds and Dolby)

4. If you want more animes with cameras in i can suggest, eureka7.

5. If you do not know yet then it is inevitable that along as there has been anime there has also been "hentai" translation (loosely) means pervert. this is basically just carton porn but the Japanese being as good as they are at animation its rather more vivid taking on allot of forms to suit everyone’s tastes if you have seen an anime no doubt there is an accompanying hentai or doujin/ pornographic comic strip or fan made pictures.
