The boys are incarcerated in the Prison Block together and Kiyoshi is overwhelmed by the discovery that all the other boys are masochists that revel in the punishments handed to them by their attractive but vicious supervisors. read more

Bishojo and Moe Characters – The Ideal Female in Japanese Anime and Videogames

“Bishojo” is a Japanese term literally meaning “beautiful girl,” and usually refers to genres of anime and video games that are centered on them. What is considered to be bishojo is subjective to its artists and audiences; such characters can have but are not limited to:

  • Large, endearing eyes to convey her emotions — a characteristic of the anime-art style
  • An ideal female body shape — the hourglass figure
  • An emphasis of the breasts by making them large, giving her sex appeal
  • A wide array of hairstyles, even those that seem impossible in real life
  • Have a wardrobe that includes skirts, blouses, and dresses
  • Moe characteristics

“Moe,” pronounced “mo-eh,” literally referring to a budding plant, is an informal Japanese term meaning a type of feeling towards anime female characters. The moe character exudes an aura of innocence, through her appearance and quirky personality; we might be attracted to her so much that we desire to be with her — to protect her, to be her boyfriend, to be her father, because in our minds she represents the ideal female. read more

Anime’s Bad Rap in the West

Although more understood for what it is by some Anime continues to suffer from misconception by many people in North America which is a shame.

As a art form Anime has no equal with its visually stunning animation and deep storylines that appeal to young and old alike. Unfortunately the majority of western people have never even watched a Anime movie or TV series or would ever even consider letting their children view one because of preconceived ideas of what it is.

Contrary to popular belief Anime is NOT full of sex and nude cartoon characters, that is the provence of the more underground Henti animation. Sure, some Anime TV shows in Japan will show naked characters as they are more relaxed then in America about the human form but that is not the norm nor are those scenes usually contained in DVD’s sold in the west unless it is made quite clear on the packaging. read more
