Anime-nation or Animation......

My husband is absolutely obsessed with Anime. I know, it could be worse, he could be an addict of an entirely different sort. It wouldn't be so bad if watching Anime didn't make me absolutely nuts. While Mr. Kat Lady isn't a purist per se, (person who watches Anime ONLY in Japanese with subtitles) he is unnaturally attached to pointless Japanese plot.

I've noticed that they talk about penises a lot in Anime. A LOT. Most notably in situations involving young cartoon children. While discussing the phallus doesn't really bother me, I have to admit seeing two animated children discussing the pros and cons of large penises disturbs me more than a little. And then there is this somewhat well, infamous show called "Those Who Hunt Elves." Look it up. The whole premise of the show is making people strip naked. I'm not even kidding. And people do it! I do have to say though, that's one plot that no US TV show will steal... (*cough* Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles...*cough*)

The whole culture is a bit overdone really. While it's awesome to dye your hair in rainbow colors and wear short "school girl" outfits if you are in tip top shape....well lets just say some people who dress up as Anime characters should just leave it to the cartoon.

And then there's the actual animation. Most of it truly looks as if it was speedily sketched by a 3rd grader and the plot written by some semi-trained monkeys. And seriously- people riding around in giant robots that they fight with each other...should have just stuck with transformers and power rangers and left it at that.

Also, why do all Anime characters have those really high pitchy voices? Half the show is spoken above high C! And why are they always yelling? Are the Japanese children deaf from all the seizures they had from the flashing intros?

I do have to give the hubbster some credit though. He doesn't force me to watch Anime with him. I'm pretty sure he feels similarly about how I am obsessed with reality TV.

Hope you dodge the flying anvils.

  1. My ex sister-in-law and her first husband were into anime porn. I called it japornimation. It's some freaky stuff, schoolgirls being raped by headmistresses who are really 8-legged octopus aliens in disguise.

    I don't miss my ex-sister-in-law.

  2. ROTFLMAO! OMG! That is hilarious! Octoporn!
