How come anime doesn't feature death, violence and sex anymore? So otaku like pantyshots, skimpy outfits and sexual innuendos, but why are they so afraid of the real thing?

Modern Anime has to try to cater to the lowest common denominator, that obviously means only tame shit gets through.

HBO is a paid cable service and most anime airs on broadcast television, the Japanese equivalent of NBC, ABC and CBS. They have their own standards that prevent excessive violence from being broadcast. Plus, ultraviolent anime from the 90s was produced as OVAs which prevented them from having to follow those same guidelines. Use your fucking brain, user.

I never talked about ultraviolent. If gantz can air on TV then so can a lot else. Obviously angel cop is very controversial, but dont be that guy who dont read the OP but just looks at the image and responds

TV anime of 1996 is equally shit as TV anime of 2013.

fucking nostalgia goggles of EOPs.

Liam Howard
Liam Howard

It wasn't an argument about culture, you ass. It was about basic television standard's and practice that happens in both Japan and the US.
Gantz was only able to show that level of mature content due to its late night time slot. There have been, and still are, shows that have mature content but they're still subject to editing and censorship because they're on broadcast fucking television. You're comparing TV anime content to OVA content and it's dumb as shit because the former is more likely to be censored than the latter. That's why people buy the BD of violent shows. It's because they're uncensored.

Sebastian Watson

well then japan is cancer. Thanks for killing the industry everyone, I guess more uguu moe school shit is what I have to content myself with from now on to the end of my days, assuming there will be an industry then because it's on such a decline

You're comparing TV anime content to OVA

I didn't, I just happened to post a picture of angel cop which you somehow start interpreting shit out of nowhere from because you're autistic

death, violence and sex
Literally the reason I started watching anime back in the early 90's.
Vampire Hunter D, homeboy slices up a nigga; vampire count dude uses Telekinesis to explode some other dude's head
Bio Hunter, some woman's getting fucked and keeps telling the dude to stop because she's so hungry; he doesn't listen so she transforms into a monster and eats him
Wicked City, nonstop sex, rape, explosions, people getting gigantic fucking holes shot in them all for some Romeo-Juliet eque love story
Gal Force, chicks in space that occasionally run around naked, alien race they're fighting devise an ultimate weapon that they've never seen before: a boy. Giant robots, inexplicable justifications for nudity and sexual humor and naughty tentacles
Nowadays:
am I kawaii uguu
fun things are fun
snarky/ apathetic protag high school student takes his seat next to the window and is immediately drawn into an ever-increasing love polygon that is inexplicably tied in to the main plot: A threat looms over japan and despite government agencies, departments, groups, squads, of highly-trained professionals, masters at the peak of their craft and skill and training, the future of japan (and thus the world, though it's never explored why some miniscule island nation has such global relevance) rests on the shoulders of a high schooler.

It's a fair assumption considering you posted a picture of a 90s OVA. If it was an incorrect assumption then I apologize. It makes your arguments even flimsier and more confusing.

Haha, 90s anime was much better than current anime. It had fleshed-out characters, gripping plots, fantastic music and gorgeous cel animation with hand-painted colors and shading. I don't think it's wrong to say that anime lost its soul during the transition to computer animation; digital animation took away the gritty, raw feeling from anime and turned it into a sterile, facile imitation of the original artform, and with that loss in visual quality came a loss in the rich (and sometimes experimental) creativity that the industry used to have! Sorry that I don't eat up the creatively-bankrupt, mass-marketed otaku-focused tripe that passes for "anime" nowadays, but I'll gladly take any of those shows over generic self-insert haremshit #2,543..

Why are you equating mature content with quality content? I'm not sure if you're an idiot oldfag with rose-colored nostalgia glasses or an idiot 15 year old pretending to be an oldfag. I'm not arguing for moeblob shit. I hate moeblob shit, too. OP's just being an idiot by making blanket statements about two completely different eras. It'd be like me saying that current anime is better by comparing Kids on the Slope to Mars of Destruction.

Henry Cox

Why are you here then if you don't seem to enjoy anime?

You take anime for what it is, not for whatever unrealistic standards you think it should be.

Your trashy grimdark ovas were nothing more than shit.

Adrian Edwards

No, I think you're insane because your immediate reaction to "broadcast television has certain content restrictions" is to call Japan cancer and complain about the industry supposedly dying because of "uguu moe school shit" despite the lack of relevance that has to the topic at hand.

Asher Ross

Why is the style you like the only legitimate form of animation? So many different techniques are possible now thanks to digital. But old people are going to be boring and complain like they always do I guess.

David Sanchez

I guess I'm not as subservient as you then, go ahead and be a boring dolt for the rest of your life, I don't care.

supposedly dying because of "uguu moe school shit"

Yes, that's a given. One follows the other and this is the state of the industry right now. Btw I love your token meme moeblob reaction image, despite claiming you don't like moeshit. I reiterate, we're not talking about ultraviolent anime nor japanese television standards, we're talking about you, the obsessive viewer, who only want one type of content and no deviation, which is killing the industry as far as diversity goes.

And I don't give a shit about certain TV-stations' standards, they're not that low to not allow any sort of deviation from the same old trite we've been served for half a decade now. I was merely commenting on the fact that I dislike it and your species, but yeah, keep on being an autist who takes everything literally and personally.
