The Nihon Review - Anime Reviews & Editorials

The Normalization of Perversion

A year ago, I looked at the more hardcore moe titles with shock and horror due to its naked display of misogyny and spoon-fed pandering.  These days such seemingly extreme behavior has normalized to a point where something like Fight! Ippatsu! Juuden-chan! stops being outright disgusting and becomes somewhat fascinating.  Though I could not get into the show myself, TIF seems to enjoy it.

Also, AC reviews Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni Rei.  For those of you who have never been introduced Higurashi franchise, it’s something akin to watching a cute bunny rabbit doing cute bunny rabbit things for a few minutes before someone grabs it, throws it in a microwave and recreates the finale of Akira in slow motion.
