Miyazaki: The Problem With The Anime Industry Is It’s Full of People Who Actually Buy the Content They Consume

 #I’M REALLY TORN ABOUT THIS #I LOVE MIYAZAKI AND THE THINGS HE MAKES #BUT NOW I FEEL COMPLETELY INSULTED BY A PERSON I LOOK UP TO #ALSO HE IMPLIES MASTURBATION IS AS BAD AS WAR????? #WTF MIYAZAKI WHO ARE YOU #I HATE SEEING THE PERSON BEHIND THE CREATIONS SOMETIMES #THIS IS HORRIBLE AND I WISH I DIDN’T SEE IT #IT’S JUST LIKE HORRIBLESUBS AND THE SHITTY THINGS THEY SAY ABOUT THE FANS WHO WATCH THE SHOWS THEY FANSUB #JFC FUCK THE WORLD 

Methinks Miyazaki has spent a little too much time going bar hopping with Hideki Anno

He’s the new Alan Moore. Was only a matter of time.

IN WHICH I WRITE A VERY LONG POST ABOUT WHY MIYAZAKI IS NOT WRONG AND I APPARENTLY CAN’T INSERT A READ MORE BREAK SO SUCK IT IN THAT REGARD TOO, I GUESS

tl;dr:

  • If you unironically call yourself an otaku, you’re lumping yourself in with some of the least-respected members of society in Japan, and you shouldn’t be surprised/outraged when a well-respected member of Japanese society looks down on you.
  • The things otaku like are off-putting, and because the anime industry makes most of their money from otaku, the anime industry in general is off-putting.
  • The anime industry should probably be restructured so that otaku have less power to decide what gets animated, otherwise the anime industry will collapse because NOBODY LIKES IT.
  • Gimme your lunch money, nerds.

Uh, he never implied masturbation is as bad as war. He’s being a cranky old man, as cranky old men are wont to do. The author of the article just listed those things as additional things Miyazaki doesn’t like.

And something you people really, really, REALLY need to understand is that "otaku" is not a term of endearment in Japan the way “nerd” has become so in the West. If I were to speculate, I’d say it has a lot to do with cultural values - here, we place a lot of value and pride in our individual identities, but that just is not the case in Japan. They, and the East Asian countries in general, place a lot of value in working to improve the collective. Being an otaku implies a lot of the things you’d think being the classical “nerd” implies - living in your mother’s basement, spending all your time watching anime/slacking off, and being a general drain on society. While that’s not “accepted” in the West per se, it is not directly contradictory to every cultural value we have. We’re just expressing our identities when we do those kinds of things. In Japan, they are the antithesis of a praiseworthy member of society.When the anime industry is, in Miyazaki’s mind, full of these kinds of people, who seal themselves off in insular groups and jack off to 2D waifus all day in between drawing said 2D waifus, that is a real problem.

Frankly, when I look at the entire catalogue of anime titles released over the past 5 years, I see what he means. Who the fuck is going to buy OreImo except lolicon siscon hentai otaku? Who the fuck is going to buy K-On! except ronery NEETs? I LOVE the Monogatari Series - but who the fuck is going to buy that shit except social rejects? 

Real-life people do not act like the people in those shows.Real people do not say to their friends/rivals in love “hey, let’s take a shower together while I fondle your tits.” Real sisters do not fall in love with their oniichan desu~s after many sessions of counseling. I love the tsundere archetype, but a real-life tsundere is someone that nobody wants to be around because they treat other people like shit.

I probably should devote an entire paragraph to lolis. (Most) people do not sexualize little girls, and in fact find the sexualization of of little girls to be repulsive. Why, then, are there so many lolis in anime? Because lolis represent a lot of things that a lot of men find desirable in women - innocence, petite bodies, cuteness in general. But for whatever reason, it has become not only okay, but the norm for anime to have prepubescent girls in compromising sexual positions. If you like flat chests - fine. If you like inexperienced girls - fine. If you like cute things - fine. Mashing all of those things together on a 12-year-old and slapping a bikini on her to appeal to otaku with those preferences? Most people will say that is fucked up. 

Fanservice is off-putting to a lot of people. Incest is off-putting to a lot of people. Lolis are off-putting to a lot of people. Unbelievable characters and character interactions are off-putting to a lot of people. But those things are things that self-proclaimed otaku audiences embrace, so that’s what the Miyazaki-proclaimed otaku in the industry draw. Because animation studios make so little money off of anything but DVD and merchandise sales, and otaku are the only people who buy that stuff, the anime industry of late has become inbred and stale at best, and offensive and pedophilic at worst.

Miyazaki is well-loved, both in the West and in the East. But he is not well-loved because his works are made for otaku. I’ve never seen anything he’s made, but the sense I get is that he’s loved in the mainstream because he tells stories that resonate with a hell of a lot of people. The problem he sees in the anime industry is that their works tend only to resonate with otaku, and otaku are not acceptable members of society in Japan. From what I’ve seen of what’s been released and been popular the past few years, I cannot blame him for thinking the way he does.

Thank you so much for writing this so I don’t have to.

It’s basically what Hideaki Anno of Evangelion fame also said:

He loves anime, but he hates the main consumer of it, because they are too influential in what gets made.

It only makes sense for Miyazaki to share this opinion: The man is passionate about his craft, and yet, when he checks any new anime season, he has to see his beloved art has turned into:

  1. Tons and tons of repetitive fanservice
  2. Harem
  3. Lolicon, siscon, incest, etc.
  4. Stereotypes that come again over and over.

He is justifiably fed up with an industry that has shifted most of its focus to sell fap material like Super Sonico or lonely-wish-fulfilling shit like harem.

It has become stagnant and fetid and you all should admit that already.

Aaaaand also? As the person before me said, Otaku is a very, very negative term in Japan.

It’s a huge insult.

People that enjoy anime or manga in Japan without getting to depraved extremes of pursuing only their wish-fulfilling fetish ridden bullshit shows do exist, and they are not called otaku, nor would they EVER call themselves otaku. People that call themselves otaku in Japan do it to take a bit of the edge off the insult.

You all oughta inform yourselves better and try to understand what Miyazaki and Anno have been trying to say for years instead of just diving into a cesspool of shit and calling it pristine water.

In all honesty ‘otaku’ isn’t the horrible insult that people make it out to be. It really depends on who’s saying it and the context, because there are tons of regular young people (and celebrities, mind you) in Japan who call themselves an otaku. People are NOT going to automatically recoil and run for their lives if you call yourself one ok??

10 years ago the word had a lot of stigma, but then everyone became obsessed with otaku culture from Densha Otoko. After that accessible anime like K-ON and sites like NicoNico douga made ‘otaku culture’, and generally obsessing over a anime/manga more mainstream. (let’s not even get into how obsessed Japan is with One Piece and SnK right now…)

Not to mention ‘a disgusting otaku’ is called a ‘kimo-ota’, usually signifying the kind of awkward NEET who hasn’t showered for days type you’re describing, and that’s definitely not something you’d call yourself. 

I’m just really sick of people acting like the word ‘otaku’ itself is a hush-hush, ‘might-as-well-say-i-molest-kids’ word in japan.
