So I read a blog by Cecilia D’Anastasio who claims anime is misogynist, racist and needs to conform to Western standards. First, Miss D’Anastasio can fuck off. Anime is not hers to change. No one is forcing her to watch it. Have you not seen all the examples of racism in American animation? After watching 15,000 episodes I can honestly say anime remains fairly respectful of women and minorities. Anime is not afraid of tackling social issues such as exploitation and human trafficking. Numerous anime deal with a strong female protagonist–Those are my favorite!
Don’t change anime. Don’t make it Western because I’ll hate it. Don’t do us any favors.
サマリー: Cecilia D’Anastasio はアニメと日本の文化を嫌っている。彼女はキリスト教徒の信仰とモラルをアニメに反映させて欲しいと思っている。
