The lights are on
Maybe you can't read Japanese, but you don't have to in order to appreciate anime or to hang out here. Talk with others about your favorite manga, movies, and artists.
ummm...YES, six is not an appropriate age for FLCL.... a lot of suggestive content.... what am I gonna do with you??.... ::shaking head::
Yet kids in Japan can watch dragon ball which shows nudity and other suggestive content... And here we can't even watch a Pokemon episode that was banned because one character had a gun that although he used it he didn't hit anyone
The champions come together and a new battle ensues!
Welcome to America.... the land of child safety hysteria. America really goes above-and-beyond with this crap, especially if it's anything that might even be remotely considered as suggestive in content... almost to the level of comic absurdity... I guess they think you're pretty fragile.... either that or they just have nothing to do.
The companies over here do go too far in censoring shows, but I believe that it's because parenting in this country has became so lax that parents can't be bothered to find out what their children are capable of watching, so they just let the companies decide for them. Or it could be that the companies are stupid, or are afraid that some crazed fruit loop of a parent will come complaining to them.
Now you're playing with power!
You're right Neku... welcome to America... the place where 8 year olds have to sit in car seats and super smash bros. brawl is rated T
So what I gather from the last few posts is that you guys are implying that America is the most hated anime character. Which it is probably not that from being the most hated hahaha.
yeah america is a pretty horrible character...so annoying and gets into other people's business to much
technically America is an anime character in Hetalia... so yeah we hate him
well i guess it all works out in the end then XD
@mUgen and Neku - If you really wanna blame somebody for that type of idiot thinking you can blame Al Gore's wife Tipper. Back in the late 80's or early 90's she went on a rampage for censoring things cause she didn't like the stuff being done. And it is the parents fault for letting the kids see things they ain't suppose to see
Basically, blame the people in the country not the country itself. I can't believe it, two people on the internet actually agree on something....that's just...unheard of. But yeah, the parents should know what their kids are watching and what the can handle.
Yeah I wish some parents could do so... If only
lol... That little comment I made sure got a lot of feedback! I basically agree with what everyone said. That Tipper Gore thing was news to me. mUgen-0, 8-year olds in car seats! Great line! ha ha ha. :D. Volt, I think your first comment was exactly right. It's funny, parents seem to be one of those two extremes. Either completely indifferent or hysterically overbearing...
While I don't really like America in Hetalia (I hate his stupid outfit... every time I see him I wanna smack him!). I think I dislike England more. I don't really like Austria either. My faves are Sealand, Latvia and Poland. I like Switzerland too.
I like Japan, China, Sealand, and Italy in Hetalia... I also like chibi Holy Rome
