Here in Austria and Germany there's one popular kids channel that used to air a ton of anime like Pokémon, Naruto, Inu Yasha and whatnot but since it was a kids channel and they aired all those during the day they had to cut and censor...a lot. Especially Naruto got hit really badly by that, with deaths being censored as "He/She disappeared or got kidnapped.", whole bloody and violent segments just completely left out to make the story really hard to follow. Of course, on top of that you had some lovely German dubs capable of scaring you off any anime for life. Thankfully I managed to recover from the shock once I found out about Japanese voices+subs years ago.

Pretty much everyone has seen some bits before from switching through channels and formed their preconceptions from that, so in my country it's impossible to get anyone to accept or understand that anime is far beyond silly, childish cartoons (or the completely butchered versions airing on that channel).

I think the misconception of anime in the west will be that it's childish for a long time.

Either that or pornographic cartoons, that seems to be the other popular misconception...
It'll probably take more directors like Miyazaki to change that, it might not happen for a while even though it's such a mainstream form of entertainment in Japan.

It's sad how people shun/hate/ridicule anime because there exists hentai. Using the same fascinating logic, shouldn't people react the same to regular TV shows/series or movies with real actors because there exists porn?

It's good that this topic doesn't actually have a topic, otherwise I would have derailed this already. Smilie

Either way keeping the nsfw discussion to a relative minimum is probably a good idea Smilie

But yep it's ridiculous, at the same time anime has an increasingly perverted reputation even in Japan. Too much moe or fanservice anime these days. Smilie

This board doesn't affect your postcount at all silly Smilie

Exactly. I've just over a hundred posts left to make in  4 months, a thread I can keep writing in that doesn't affect that counter will be ideal. Smilie

Well, at least I know now that people are around to save me when I'm posting random funny stuff I see. I remember times when I wanted to post something but I still had the last post. Even with this not affecting post count and the whole point being actually having the last post, I've been a mod on too many forums to double post. Smilie
