Neptunia The Animation Even More Disturbingly Sexualized





Hyperdimension Neptunia has finally made its anime debut, and appears to have met with fan satisfaction for being a decent adaptation of the RPG series (itself a thinly veiled parody of the console wars heavily couched in 2ch’s “geha” lore, an unlikely subject for a game let alone an anime), while also providing the disturbingly sexualized young girls the game is infamous for

    I don't see "disturbing sexualization here". At least, not as much as in Tu Love-Ru. Here I would think it is the female body made beautiful and poetic (judging for these screencaps).

    This is disgurbing to some people, so it fits the headline.
    Still disturbing is a very stupid word to use when it comes to a TV show not meant to be taken seriously.
    It's like finding a joke disturbing, only stupid people can seriously get disturbed or offended by made up words that have no real world consequence.
    Get disturbed by shit that matter.
    Stuff like real world events where people get hurt are worth getting disturbed over.
    Riots or killings or world hunger and war. People getting disturbed over a show are fucking stupid.

    Mhmm, I see your point here. It's true that it can disturb people with different morals than mines. But yeah, war, hunger, rapes (and silly misogynic and homophobic comments in the posts about Free) are more serious things to be disturbed about…

    You said :

    Couldn't agree more. i mean this is fake! never intended to be real, it doesn't even resemble reality is as close to reality as lets say donald duck is
    close to a real duck. but people get offended by drawings, and they don't get offended by todays teen shows content or the ever present content of child abuse in police dramas. and what about the child abuse, and sexualization in real life in stupid tv shows like those where mother put their daughter in contests and dress them up, and make them act, as real sluts? and those are real children below the 12 age range!

    The average American man's penis is 5.6 inches (14.2 centimeters) long when erect, a new survey of 1,661 men finds.

    The study, published online July 10 in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, is relatively consistent with the results of prior surveys of penis size.

    Penis size has been the subject of dozens of studies, as well as countless urban legends, myths and spam emails. For many men, the idea of not measuring up can cause a great deal of anxiety.

    But whether penis size truly matters to a man's sex partner is up for debate. Some research shows that women who experience vaginal orgasms do so more consistently with men of bigger girth.

    Actually it was one female reviewer. Apparently she thinks young girls have nothing to do with sex-appeal, the foolish old hag.

    I remember two reviews, one male and one female, and they were both pretty equally harsh. Gaming columns (aimed at mainstream audiences) mostly said the same thing - judged the whole game on its presentation. Which really irritated me because no one could tell me about the actual damn game, but hardly any of the reviewers could look past the fanservice to review the game properly at all.
    I thought this episode was pretty interesting, though. I heard its different to the game, which makes me more interested in it.

    Of course, the original "disturbing" moniker came from Western gaming sites, and of course the West believes that any interest in any females appearing to be under 21 makes you a pedophile.

    right, because their round faces, huge eyes and tiny noses look nothing like young girls' features at all. because anime is full of girls who look and act their age.

    It's a parody of the many english-language reviews written by non-anime fans for the original games that used words like that. Sankaku have been using it like a meme when ever referening this series ever since.
    People got mad about 'feminism' then even though one of the reviews that made people angriest was by a dude. It's not 'feminism', its just the typical non-anime fan finding different depictions of 'sexy' disturbing. (tanned blond american in bikini who looks about 30= sexy! its okay!, cartoon girl who looks younger and has feminine features such as boobs - EVIL! PEDOPHILIA! What sick freak those japanitoony fans are!) Pretty sad really. But funny.

    hmm. Not sure why this comment thread turned into a feminism discussion. I only bought it up in my comment because someone said that it was feminists that complained about the girls being sexualized (it isnt, you get the OH NO SEXUALIZATION from every mainstream, not-anime-fan review) Not much for me to say except that anon, while I think your right that the common depiction of feminism isnt real feminism, the way I see it, there are many types of feminism. Unfortunately, many are bad,(and also the famous 'straw feminists' who may not even exist but fox-news likes to pretend they do) and make all the other types look just as bad. Sometimes I think it should be called something else, like, I dunno, 'equal rights for everyone, stop being a douchenugget and judging people based on their skin colour, or whether their sexual organs are internal or external, I dont care which you are but if you're a bad person I'll treat you like one', but that's long.

    You can tell your fairy tales about the "true feminism" somewhere else. Equal rights is not what most of the people who call themselves/are called feminists now are arguing for. Hell, I've never heard any of them mentioning, for example, equal rights for both parents over children with divorce. And this, "real" feminism is evil. So, don't pass your wishes as reality.

    18:52- I'm sorry you only know lousy feminists. Divorce equality is something I believe in. The reason that this issue exists is because of sexism as well - the idea that women=nurterer, therefore automatically better for the children. Again, gender roles! Challenge them!

    However, I have heard that men that want custody receive it overwhelmingly in cases where they actually apply for it. This could differ from area to area though.

    Gender and Sexual attributes are two different things.. Listen UP.

    Most Feminine <<<<<<<>>>>>>> Most Masculine

    A woman on the far right might be called a Lesbyn, A Man on the far left might be called a F@G.

    We all have sexual preferences that can differ from our physical looks.

    Status Quo thinks we should act the way we LOOK!

    Not the way we feel!

    14:59 You clearly have no idea what a feminist actually is, but no one on this site seems to, so thats ok. It's got nothing to do with 'stripping men of rights'. It's about treating women (and men!) like human beings, which is something a lot of people have yet to achieve. We live in a world where 'feminine' is seen as weaker or worse than masculine, which is an idea that hurts men as well as women. Men who arent 'manly' are ridiculed all the time.
    Feminism, that is actual, proper feminism (not the ridiculous man-hating shit this site thinks it is) is actually beneficial to men. Pretty much all the problems men have with women are due to dumb gender roles, which is what feminism is against. (For example, you hate the idea that men are expected to pay on a date? That stems from sexism, that women cant look after themselves. Which is bullshit! Feminism recognizes that. A true feminist will never expect a man to pay in my opinion.)
    If genders actually had equal ground, it wouldnt be need to be called 'feminism'. It would just be called 'humanism'.
    The fact that the word has such a bad connotation solely because its called 'feminism' is evidence in itself why its necessary.
    Hopefully this educated you a little, have a nice day.

    And about date you are right – "true feminist" woman would never allow to pay for her. But the reason for that is not that she would be embarrassed to no share the burden, but that it would insult her as not being treated as at least equal (but actually of course far superior) being.

    Japanese obsession with child sex is quite exceptional. They only banned production of child porno a few years ago and were huge producers. They still do sick junior idol sheet.

    Yet Holy Crap, because disturbing isn't all of it. Pedophilia is still in the DSM as a freaking disorder and sex attraction to children is seriously f-ed up. It does not lead to happiness, the children are scrwed up for life. It does not lead to pregnancy and if it does often a 10-12 year old giving birth leads to death of both mom child and her baby. It's maladaptive. It's cross culturally f-ed up.

    Of course. Their speech driven by anger emotion, they tolerate no talking back (which is bad in a debate), and likely to fail to see the bigger picture.

    I read countless time of woman cry out of nowhere during her menstruation(hormonal imbalance), and some story about a crying woman during game convention (out of nowhere), and some woman complain to a customer service, then when the customer service person gather all the answer and call her back to solve her problem, you know what she said? She said she complain before because she's was in bad mood..

    Woman are just as brainy as man, or maybe even more, but some woman have poor emotional management. Many of them are in the feminism.

    Men have also been known to snap faster than women and commit violence a lot more quickly.

    Yes, but woman are known to using the backdoor strategy, by spreading false gossip and more prone to holding grudge.

    The woman may not look angry or doing anything suggesting she is mad, but its not mean she is forgiving or lighthearted. In some case, tongue is mightier than a fist, and woman can be very abusing with her tongue.

    ...doesnt match the fact that men seem to be emotional all the damn time.

    Man emotional all the time? Ever heard premenstrual syndrome, sir?

    Bloating, swelling of arms or legs, and breast tenderness are the usual physical symptoms. Feeling overly emotional, experiencing depression, anger and irritability, or having anxiety and social withdrawal may be present. As many as 20% to 40% of women may have PMS at some point in life.

    I think man and woman can be emotional, but woman, some woman can be VERY emotional especially during menstruation. Woman have menstruation 7 days every months (average) in her younger day, so about 1/4 times, young woman are emotional.

    Also, man get emotional mostly by outside source(bad boss, low salary, etc), but woman can get emotional by both biological and outside source as well. The emotional time's frequency, is more rapid for woman. Woman are more prone to be emotional than a man.

    Its no mystical myth, its a real science.

    "It's a fact Taylor: nowadays, men have globally more rights than women, this applies almost everywhere in the world, and women want these rights because it's just equality. After all, if you were born as a women, what would your opinion be?"

    Legal rights and social human rights are different things. Men want the right to not have to be rich and look like a bishounen in order to get love attention affection and fidelity from 3d women. Men want the right to keep their children after their wives divorce them when the money runs out during hard times and not have the courts always favor the women. Men want the right to be given the benefit of the doubt when a bitter girl is LYING when she says she is raped. Men want the right to have women share in giving attention in relationships and have women make it about the men half the time itself of always about the girl. Men want the right to be emotional if they choose to without it grossing out most women. Men want the right to have women plan out a date for them for a change, to be pursued and feel special for a change and without superficial reasons, to be the center of attention and attention every now and then for a change. To be finally supported without it being a problem for a change. I can go on and on forever with this.

    What would I do if born a woman? I wouldn't live my life as though I'm special and precious just because I'm a girl. I would do things that would make myself deserving of any attention I get that doesn't include makeup. I'd work hard and make a way for myself according to my interests and gifts and not just wait for some guy to sweep me off my feet and live off him and do nothing with my life. I can go on and on with this too.

    I noticed when the facts came out the women stfu. This is the same way I shut up shuubi. What I've learned from women is that they will argue their dumbass opinion to the grave because its how they "feel" but when you show them facts proof and logic they can't deny, thats the only way to get them to stfu. They'll still try ti change the argument and make it about something else, but its still the best way to shut them up and prove their "feelings" and opinion on an issue doesnt mean shit and they are usually wrong when faced with the facts.

    Sorry, but the fact that women get more emotional during menstruation (which is a huge generalization, by the way, not everyone does) doesnt match the fact that men seem to be emotional all the damn time. Have you even seen the coverage of the super bowl? Men are terrifying when they watch sports.
    Men have also been known to snap faster than women and commit violence a lot more quickly.
    This doesnt mean all men will. But have a think about all the crimes you here when a man who neighbours said was 'such a nice guy, never showed any signs of anger' suddenly and inexplicably snapped and murdered his family. Then try to tell me women have problems 'controlling their emotions'.

    Well, this also apply to woman as well. In freaky incident, there are woman that biting man's ding dong because she suspecting adultery..

    Woman are better hiding their emotion than a man, by the way.. but sometimes it burst(usually during menstruation) and the real side f her are shown.

    Ever heard "wife changing" after a marriage? Yup, that is one of those emotion hiding, and pretending to be someone else and only show the real selves once the date/husband is secured.

    This is a lie. Do you know that 2/3 woman have menstrual cramp during menstruation?

    This is the main reason why MANY woman are more emotional during menstruation. Even for those aren't having any cramp, they still emotional, and it was theorize this behavior change is to keep man away or show that the 7 days period is the no sex time.
