Oh wow, it was supposed to be a joke?

If that’s the case it’s honestly a little depressing.

*I*'m not trying to get at anything, since I didn't make the picture. What I believe the artist intended was a representations as Korea as a large, powerful tiger, displaying its dominance by humping the rest of mainland Asia into submission. Japan is represented as a smelly fecal spray voided into the Pacific.

That's just my interpretation though. Art is subjective. Also I can't read the word bubble coming out of the Tiger's butt, but I assume it's a fart noise.

Cool story, bro. Talk to yourself much on forums?

And let's not talk about looking foolish on a forum, when you've spawned more garbage threads here than anyone, including this one.

God. Fucking. Damnit. Some of you Japanese idiots make it really hard to defend you guys sometimes.

So, in the past few years there have been a couple of Zombie-animes out there. And they've somehow managed to be even more worthless than The Walking Dead. "High School of the Dead" had tons of great zombie-killing action, but used that fact to hide that it was basically hentai-smut. And then there was "Kore wa Zombie desu ka?" or "Is This a Zombie?" Which is a pandering, moefest and doesn't even bother to hide the fact. Both of these shows are dreadful. If you forced me to watch both of them all the way though, I'd probably swear off Anime for life. They were also unfortunately, commercial successes among brain-dead otaku. So you know what that means, right?

KORE WA ZOMBIE DESU KA? OF THE DEAD:

So you've watched Kore wa Zombie Desu ka? Or is this one of those kenzo makes broad sweeping judgements and generalizations based off trailers/PVs and a Google image search?

I'm sure it probably has a bunch of dumb pandering scenes but this guy being impaled by bear claws doesn't look that moe.

I can't say either way on both Kore wa Zombie Desu ka or High School of the Dead since I have not watched either of them aside from a 2 minute PV for the latter.

It's a magical girl, what you have not seen Sailor Moon before?

The dude bleeding out from multiple claw based stab wounds is a lot more prominent, also she has a chainsaw. Doesn't scream moe as much as you are saying the series does. There is much worse, at least it is not K-ON levels of pointless moe bullshit going purely off that screen shot.

Also the question you did not answer it, and to clarify it is not a rhetorical one.

I'm not going to get into a retarded argument with you about this. It's a magical girl - in a show marketed towards adult males. It's moe. That's a big difference from magical girls in shows like Sailor Moon - marketed towards young girls.

You're arguing about whether or not we're having an argument now? Could you possibly be any more needlessly combative?

What's the point? You want to know if I've seen something to make sure I'm not jumping to unreasonable conclusions, yet you acknowledge yourself right away that it's probably full of pandering nonsense and that I'm probably right. Dude, gimmie a fuckin' break.

I already said, High School of the Dead had a lot of redeeming features, but was blanketed in unnecessary pandering. There's a cartoonish-bear stabbing the immortal main character - oh snap! I judged this animu all wrong! Maybe I should get the DVDs and give this show a shot since I clearly misjudged it. Wait...

Spoiler: show

Nope. I was right all along. :lol: It's not jumping to conclusions when I'm judging like this. This is how the show chooses to sell itself. If there's something deeper on the inside that I'm missing, that's not my bad, that's theirs. If you want to be taken seriously by me, don't use naked lolis on your covers.

It's likely pandering in some form, but it's not moe. Moe is a very specific brand of cuteness. Fujiko isn't cute. I could go into the particulars defending Lupin III about how Fujiko was getting naked on screen before "fan service" was a thing, or the inherent nature of femme fatales, or how unlike these zombie shows, this new show is actually made by women. But I know you're more interested in trolling.

No, you are twisting my words. I'm acknowledging that it is possible there is more pandering moe stuff than most anime but more importantly I'm acknowledging that I cannot actually say whether that is true or not because I have not seen it.

How you decide to judge the show yourself is your choice I just want to clarify if you have actually seen it to or are judging a book by it's cover. You can rationalize your opinion with whatever logic you want I'm just wanting to know where the basis is from.

:? How is asking a question arguing? I just wanted to know one thing, I'm not concerned with arguing about what you think of the show I just wanted to know where you are coming from with why you believe what you are saying.
