Netflix May Destroy Anime In The Future
Western Views + Anime = ???
Netflix, Crunchyroll, and many others allow people to watch their favorite anime and find new ones. However, over the years a lot of these corporations have become… Twitter-ized and with it, the content they produce. Said content is being used as a platform or soapbox for voicing one’s views or opinions. Something that’s inherently fine for those specifically seeking out such energy. However, not for those who want no part in it.
Take comics, for example, such content has been used by fans to get lost in a world of makebelieve. To take a break from the rough world one lives in, to unwind, and simply relax. Turning a blind eye to those who shout from their platforms about problems of all shapes and sizes. And because of this lack of attention, they will attempt to take control of one’s favorite tool for unwinding.
Anime May Follow The Path Of Comics
Comics aren’t what they use to be; Having become less about the stories and more about some kind of political message. Granted comics have been used during the war to boost morale for better or for worse. That being said, the point still stands. And that being, Anime is slowly following the same path as Comics. While it’s great to be able to access anime from large names like Netflix, the problem is their views on censorship. Today, said views may be fine but what about tomorrow? Today the CEO may love anime but what happens when a new CEO comes in and hates anime. Calling anime “too provocative,” or “problematic.” What happens then?
If these corporations are allowed too much of a monopoly on anime, it will surely become Twitter-ized while the corporation desperately tries to cater to those who simply wish to use anime as a platform. A tool or if they are unable to infect anime with their Twitter-like agenda, simply destroy it as the United Nations wish to do.
Anime lovers could simply go somewhere else to find untainted anime. But what happens when a country bans anime? These things can and will happen if it’s allowed to, but I digress. Anime is changing into something, so let’s do our best to make sure it doesn’t end up like Comics. Leave a comment below with your thoughts on the future of anime.

Fiction Representing Reality?
Do People Really Want Representation From Fictional Characters?
Isn’t it odd that people feel the need to justify their personality, their very existence by using characters or other people around the world? I’ve never felt such a need. The only one I would want to represent me, is myself. Because who else could do it better? And yet every day I see people despritaly trying to find justification, someone or something that could represent them better than themselves; At least that’s what I see.
One could say it’s much more than representing yourself and I could agree on some level if that’s what you wanted. But only because that’s what you wanted. There are those that give great importance to things or others that they care about. It’s an importance that can only be given, nothing more and nothing less. I could say my hands are the most important things in the world and that would be true but only in my eyes. I could say that you, the reader, are the most important person in the world but that doesn’t make it a fact. Importance seems to be nothing more than a chemical imbalance in the human mind. Because if you remove all life from reality, importance no longer is a concept.
There are those that want anime to represent specific groups of people; And I ask, why would someone want fictional characters to represent real people? Why would said person simply not make their own content of representation instead of begging others to do it? Is it because said fictional character is actually a stolen documentary of a person’s life? Or do certain types of people want to plug themselves into the main character’s shoes to get lost in the story? Or… do certain types of people feel fictional characters with large breasts, for example, set fictional standards on beauty and feel less like a person for not having large breasts?
It’s to my understanding that some people feel unseen in today’s media and in some cases even feel misrepresented due to things like stereotypes. For example, I’m sure there are those who will assume that because I’m a woman of culture, that I like the classic tentacle coitus, or because of my bust that I’m always moment’s from an ara ara situation; That’s understandable I suppose.
Stereotypes will come and go or change into something more. Still, stereotypes do not represent me unless I want them to. At the end of the day, I represent myself and I’m free to steer clear of those that don’t understand that. I don’t personally feel the need to demand someone to represent me simply to satisfy my insecurities. If I cared enough, I’d do it myself, better than anyone else in the world.
Do you know why others shouldn’t represent you? It’s because there is only one of you, and it’s impossible for anyone else to be you.

Rising Hatred Between Manga & Comics
Why Is There Conflict Between Comics And Manga?
Recently there has been a growing feud between Comics and Manga. Specifically, the creators who go on to “pass the torch” of hatred to their followers. I’m not the type to go searching for upsetting news, but time and time again, I’ve seen thumbnails of such content. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, then great! Neither do I on some level, I suppose.
Long gone are the days where it was simply, “Who would win in a fight, Goku or Superman?” And creeping right around the corner is “What’s better, Comics or Manga?” I’m very much aware that Anime, while loved by countless, is hated by a small majority in comparison. And that’s fine; everyone is different in this regard. However, slowly this hatred seems to be growing into much more than simply not wanting to watch it and extending to the point that those who love it should not be allowed to partake.
In other words, “I hate it and so should you.” or “I hate it, so you are not allowed to enjoy it.” There are many reasons why this path of destruction seems to present itself. Japan is a maker of content the world simply loves, but with it comes those who wish to change said content into something more “befitting” of the times. A form of thought not everyone can accept. While Anime has something for everyone, there are still those who want change in such content. Want change, but not pursue it themselves.
Rather than try creating their own content, the upset people would much rather shame anime creators and their fan base in hopes of getting what they want. And for those few who dare to create such “befitting” content, in the end, it doesn’t do as well as they hoped, and such creators may try blaming anime lovers.
Do you know why people seek out content? From my point of view, people seek out content to relax, laugh, and be on the edge of their seats. And those that love controversy will seek it here and there to get their “fix.” Something that will rile them up and fuel their rage to turn something that was simply annoying into something that they feel should be removed from the face of the earth.
But in the end, such anger isn’t very healthy; Still, I don’t judge. I am bringing this up because many content creators who want to do something different will make content by pouring everything they have into their work. But forget to leave their anger and hatred at the door. And before they know it, what they’ve created is so politically charged that consumers find it hard to enjoy what was supposed to be a labor of love.
I suppose it’s sad, really; Hatred of other content being what fuels some content creators, tainting their own work of art with negative emotions. But perhaps there’s still beauty in it, a beauty that might be best enjoyed, in theory only.
