Yeah, I'm personally just not at all offended by stuff like that. I think in American culture we tend to be more uncomfortable with nudity for some reason, but it's cartoonish and done for entirely non-sexual purposes in those contexts, so it hardly even strikes me as PG-13 material. That'd be like saying it's inappropriate to take a bath. :lol: I find some of our double-standards pretty absurd.

Hunchback had nudity. Esmurelda fire image was naked. At least I read that.

True, but it was made entirely out of fire, so I doubt thoughts like that came into anyone's minds during that scene. 8D

I really only like Ghibli anime, and I don't read manga, because I don't like graphic novels. They seem the same to me.

^Have you tried any of Satoshi Kon's movies? I've only seen Paprika but they seem very much in the same vein/style of Ghibli's movies based on my exposure, I think you might like him!

I also like Kon Satoshi and have for a long time (7-8 years?), but I would caution newcomers to know that his films are often a lot darker than Ghibli movies. There's occasional nudity and violence and such, but I do rather like his movies. Paprika is undoubtedly one of his most popular films because of its surreal quality and colorful images, but I might even recommend Millennium Actress instead, which is my personal favorite but also has a deeper, more relatable storyline.

I'm actually surprised there aren't more quality anime films out there outside of Ghibli and Kon's movies. Maybe Japan should stop making so many Pokemon movies! ;-p

Yes, things like Pokemon and Dragon Ball Z make us who like anime look silly.

My point was not that no one likes them. My point is, they're bad.

Ha. Better not say that to the super fans or their freak. Anime fans can be violent.

I'm saying they're bad, which they are. It's hardly disputable. Now, is it enjoyable? Not in the least to me. But it likely is to a lot of people(just those 2 and ones like them, not all anime).

When I was in middle school, and also high school, my friends were all anime/manga fans. But I never got into it! But my friend was a fantastic, sorry Is a fantastic artist. And she does an anime style.
