Corporations decide what is in and what is not. Consumers are only taken into account when it impacts their bottom line. Thereby if the majority of people have an issue with content, then subsequently corporations will attempt to alleviate that concern UNLESS the content already makes more than enough to cover their bottom line. Conversely if the content isn't special enough, not enough people will buy into their content, so they have to resort to more extreme measures to get a reaction.

Running a business is like feeding a machine. It doesn't care what's in it as long as it keeps printing money.

I think most would accept that, but when a group sees a youtube video about a blog, they put two and two together and come up with a conspiracy.

okay, since you don't want to answer i will drop it.

Again, i agree with your "All I want is for my anime and video games to stay lewd and strange" statement.

But i'm not an extremist in which i will say, my country needs to accept loli games because Japan made it. EXTREME EXAMPLE.

Plus, you would think Parental Guidance Age limits would fix this. Maybe it's still the dumb perception that anime are cartoons and that means its for children. I don't know.  HULU says a lot of anime i watch is TVMA so i would not expect indecent to be an argument against a show.

I just hope people don't become reactionaries in large numbers. But i am seeing it become normal in anime community comment sections.

okay. since you mentioned it.

What group is using SJW and what group is using anti-SJW and for what purpose? You don't have to say which side you are in. 

I want you to answer that because the way you mentioned "we are in a culture war, whether you want to accept that fact or not" sounds alarmist to me. And if we are always in one, why are you alarmed???

Come on bro. I said elaborate, not beat around the bush. Everything you said is obvious.

Define the two groups and their ideals.

We can use your definition for reference in a couple of years. We can also see if the movement ever get co opt.

Since we disagree with the foundation of what licencing means and utilizing western reference points, there is no actual reason to continue to discuss this anymore.

but, i do want you to elaborate on what you perceive the Cultural War to be.

I want to see if i understand your points. So your arguement is that.

1) Referencing a fact in our world within a story (fake world) is wrong.

2) Prison School is an alternate world unless otherwise mentioned by the creator.

3) The original character's country has to be taken into account when dubbing.

4) Gamer-gate was nothing but an ethics argument and should probably not be talked about again.

5) SJWs will forever change Japanese media because Japanese see [not real] change and their process will change in order to meet the [fake] demand.

6) Changes in Game mechanics and changes in dub are linked and have no outside forces besides PC culture destroying media.

7) I want to experience media like it's suppose to be, everything westernized (language), but still retain the original media intent.

Sub : don’t disrespect me, I’m older than you.

Dub: don’t disrespect me, wait are you a gamer gate creep.

So now let’s see if it changes the outcome or if it reeks of agenda pushing.

Would a chick who plays game mention gamer gate? Would a girl use it to ask if the guy is hostile towards women?

You know, In a show about girls hating boys?  Is it relevant and useful? Yes it is. Did it change the story at all? No freaking way.

I gave in and started to play Fortnite.

At first i thought this game sucked, but it's drawing on my competitive energy. I'm not paying for anything though.

So basically

“I want to watch anime because it’s my window to another culture”

This entails laughing at their jokes, their references, their mannerisms.

So you guys are saying you watch dubbed anime to experience another culture and that’s how it should be?

Which makes me ask, at what point do you know you are experiencing another culture?  Real or otherwise?

Does this make sense?
Vic is innocent -> accusers are Liars -> funimation is to blame -> funimation is garbage = SJW are taking over media.

I am also on the side of anime tiddies.  But two articles that get attacked on a YouTube video does not mean it’s a war. Most are just criticism not accusations

I just saw a video of My Hero Academia where it critiquing the anime change of female characters from plump to always skinny. It was a real critique, not accusing anyone of anything other than altering the original content. But that is transformed into SJWs want everyone to be fat.  So what happened to the ethical side of altering other’s media?

Critique is evaluating, not assaulting.

 And then we get, they are trying to ban Anime. But it’s just ban indecent anime. So I guess you have to defend why it’s okay to have ass shots and boob shots of 14 year olds and why you think it’s okay to think it’s wrong for a country to accept or reject media that goes against the country’s mores?

I know, never read comments but the level of logic is to the ground.

I wish you both the very best.

I can’t say I ever felt that the universe has finally opened something special for me.  Did I just over exaggerate?

This all started with the Vic accusations. Actually it was spear headed with that.

It originally started with anti-SJWs commenting on how it’s wrong to use words like patriarchy and gamer gate in anime dubs. They see it as spreading propaganda.

But now that funimarion is being targeted, I’m seeing a rise of really extreme mentality.
1) companies that license anime need to be 100% accurate.
2) false stories where the Japanese authors hate how funimation  is ruining their anime.
3) Funimation VA need to all be fired because they were not on Vic side
4) funimation will be axed by Toei (no proof) because VA are destroying the property

So I’m seeing the ethical points being raised. But in the back, I’m seeing anti-feminism, anti-diversity, and anti-you name it.

So is no one seeing it happen like what occurred in the Gamergate days?

They will pretend it’s about ethics but it’s not.

break Room / Digibro Vs Destiny Debate
« on: April 03, 2019, 04:11:16 PM »
I am barely familiar with digibro. I first saw a video of his like three weeks ago. Then I see him debating on “good points” within a debate and why proving a point is not important. This is some epic fail stuff. Because everyone knows what is true apparently.

What’s even funnier, people see him as a creditable source of info.


This is just poison.

I think it’s a common assumption that manga and anime is “mostly” just entertainment.  People like to talk about surface level discussion points, like shipping, theories, and power levels etc. but this is mostly when the story is still on going.

Then people talk about stories from twenty years ago and actually place an ideological lenses and people find it more applicable. Because time has passed.

But when people use an ideological lense in real time, people get mad.

What are your thoughts on this behavior? 

My opinion is you have the option to read or watch an interpretation, so why get mad? You still have your story, it’s not ruined. why get pissed?
