- Dec 7, 2005Yeah, alot of anime comes off as soft core with tantilizing glances of shapely thighs and peeks at under-panties. Inuyasha(a regular on Adult Swim on the Carttoon Network) has a main female character(can't spell the name right,but it starts with a K) from modern times is dressed in a super skimpy school uniform throughout the series. And there are some anime that ARE very soft core ie show nudity etc ; where the main characters are very young(school girls).
I'm of the thought of why don't some of these anime use older characters and I'm sure that there are some. I've just haven't seen many that do.

It seems like alot of anime, some of which is ostensibly for kids, is
rather sexualized. I recenlt watched Kiki's Delivery Service with my
5 year old, who adored it. Kiki is a 13 year old witch who moves to a
new town to find her fortune. The funny part was, the character wears
a dress throughout the movie, and is constantly showing her
underwear. Now I know that if a person really didi fly around on a
broom in a medium length dress, that would happen, but the animators
seemed to be going out of their way to do this at every opportunity,
whereas American animators would have kept it to a minimum just
because it isn't seemly to show alot of 13-year-old girls underwear.
I wasn't upset, and my daughter didin't mind, but I'm just really
curious. Is this some cultural difference between the US and Japan?
Are they being realistic and just showing what things would look like,
or are they being deliberately titilating?
