    Re: Your Favorite Anime Genre

    You draw very valid point that satisfy your own opinion, however like most genres or themes (historical included) to what extent is it too much that it takes away from the anime itself.

    For example; there are plenty animes that claim historical but are overshadowed by a fictional fantasy based plot. Not to hate on inyuasha (its the only one off the top of my head) although i am a fan of it, the historical ties are kept simply by several aspects; clothing, profession of the time (monks preists). at which i think is over powered by other themes

    or other animes like hyakka ryouran samurai girl or shin koihime musou ( historical (in a sense) ecchi slapsticks)

    Do conflicting themes take away your incentive to compare reality with blatant fiction? or what about fictional history(made up history) which most animes revolve around?

    In response to PhantomZwie. That is a very low ratio. Do they all share your tastes, or are they completely different?

    Now for Mr. Tofoo12, In your own turn, you have also drawn a very fine point. I am an analyst. If it does not make sense or it has, as you said "Conflicting Themes" I get up and find out why it contrasted.

    A good example would be from Hayao Miyzaki's "Castle in the Sky" Old time setting, but held alien/advanced technology in the end.

    On Historical fiction, I find it most entertaining. I do get up and see what one anime would be based upon. Sometimes it appears as a paraphrase or a re-telling of a well known legend, hero, dynasty, etc in the Japanese history. But is told with new elements. Kind of like how we have so many versions of "Little Red Riding Hood" It is old, but has been re-told over and over again with new twists and turns.

    Not very often, but 1 out of 92 will I not bother to get up to find out wether what I just watched was correct in telling something or not. Those are for the days I do not wish to think.

    In my opinion, while there are many anime out there that emphasize on the theme, they're mostly targeted at a certain type of viewer, not for everybody. And while there are things like ecchi and fantasy blended in a genres (OK, I'll take historical as example), they're there so that people would want to take a look at it. Historical genre is not something many people want to look at if it's pure historical, but if there are "historical and fantasy" in an anime, there'll be much more viewers. And I'm pretty sure every producer wants as many viewer as possible lol. A piece, before becoming a good work, must have many people watched it first.

    Lastly I think, being realistic is good for anime and manga. But if everything in it is realistic, stays true to what had happened, then it isn't anime/manga anymore. So it's a good thing that historical are sometimes mixed with other genres in an anime.

    Last time I asked a friend of mine if he wanted to watch anime with me, he answered, "I don't like watching cartoon" lol

    Re: Your Favorite Anime Genre

    You speak very truly. If an anime (Historical) contained only the material for the most accurate telling it would be very bland. But on the other hand. If an anime was tell a story in the most accurate way possible, it would first be uncensored. When it's uncensored then obviously violence galore. I will say right now, violence in a History anime should not be dumbed down. Simple biology explains the reaction of violent disruption to flesh and bone. So it already falls into an Action, History sort of thing.


    But I must say the Historical anime 100% depends on what article of history is being told. The Iliad by Homer. That if put into an anime, would be and action, adventure, mythological sort of setting. That would be an interest to many viewers. Now if the telling of how the Shogunate came to be. That could be a little more bland. Mainly recounts of skirmishes and heroes grown old. That to most viewers would be a failure.

    I am fairly confident that when making an anime, the producers know of this and introduce an add-on element to attract viewers, but without destroying the image of what they are trying to create. Like as said earlier "Ecchi" It is a tease. Mainly for men. But what will take down an anime really fast in my opinion is when Ecchi is used excessively and any historical meaning is lost. This also goes hand in hand with fights. If you got women, you need guns, knives, swords! Then you fight! That does not appeal to me. Some creators realize and fewer balance it out evenly enough.

    Realism is a must. It must not be sugar coated, stretched and pulled. That is what gives a good ground to an historical anime. Hey was that, just now the sword known as Masamune? In reading, it is a legendary healing sword. So thus gives ground that this certain kind of anime is real. Or very close to the real world.

    Everything I have said here goes the same for Manga. I like it sometimes with a little twist or some third element not mentioned in the books, but yet put in check with a fourth element called truth. That element sadly does not exist in most works now.

    I must now retire to my bed. I have no idea what time zone you are in or where you live. But over here it is now bordering 2 in the morning. I have to be up 6 hours to do school work. Goodnight, Mr. PhantomZwei.

    Re: Your Favorite Anime Genre

    How many anime genres are their anyway? I sometimes come across new ones but forget what there called.
    I think I like psycalogical but of course I like comedy and action and romance but not romance alone or else it might be boring and everything else almost and I prefer a mix of genres.
