Ok, let me see if I can sit down and finish season 3 of Japan Hates Children aka Attack on Titan.
@Are0h I thought that was Battle Royal not Attack on Titan :P.
@PaladinQuinn Christ that DEFINITELY qualifies.
@Are0h why are there so many compelling stories about child soldiers? 🤷♀️
@gattogateaux I think that's a great question that's worth exploring.
@Are0h I think ultimately it teaches kids the main way they can gain agency over things that hurt them is thru violence but I'm sure there's more to it then that.
In the meantime let's just enjoy our shows. Lol
a take i guess Show more
i've always speculated that a lot of anime through the 90s and the 00s is made by people who had absent parents, that's around the time when the kids of households with two working parents had fully grown
most of the shows we've seen from those creators are about kids who have to figure out how to deal with their problems with very little or no adult guidance or protection at all, which is lateral across many genres too, not just scifi and fantasy
Social is the primary social media platform for the forth coming fourth version of Play Vicious, a new initiative built to bring attention to the plethora of creative acts that don't get the shine they deserve.
