A show of power by any group is the ability to alter political discourse within another organization in order to manipulate them into accomplishing a certain objective.
There is a phenomenon that is occurring among our young people called “Otakuization” that is being perpetuated by Eastern Media and Eastern Cultures, primarily Japan. This phenomenon has been taking place since the late 90’s to early 2000’s when Japanese animated features and eastern media were at their most popular among the American population, especially young people, who are the most susceptible to succumbing to the imagery and ideas promoted within the animated medium. Countries like Japan have a vested economic and political interest in promoting parts of their culture within the west and, through their media and animation, try to cultivate an acceptance of cultural assertions among our youths, in our theaters and broadcast stations and in our universities. The goal of an eastern country like Japan is to gradually alter political discourse to favor them, and they start from the youngest members and the recently politically active in an attempt to play a long game. For example they tend and desire to covertly and insidiously promote certain liberal agendas. Shows like Azumanga Daioh (meaning “Azu-manga the Great King”) and High School Host Club are intent on and made for the purpose of promoting sexually liberal ethics and the LGBT lifestyle (Lesbianism in the case of Azumanga which is aimed toward young women). Since animation isn’t all primarily for children, a show like Serial Experiments Lain is featured in many Colleges and Universities in order to promote certain eastern philosophies in relation to the nature of reality and religion. Otakuization is the process in which a country like Japan promotes their cultural products in order to condition the population into accepting the agendas and philosophies they wish to instill, thus affecting for the purpose of manipulating us into fulfilling their economic and political goals. It is the will of the East to affect the western political landscape in the long run. Eastern media and the animation that is so frequently employed by them should be brought under scrutiny.

The author of this post is actually a Christian with some conservative values who happens to particularly enjoy the above mentioned shows. However there is bit of mischief in me that wishes that this reaches a major news network like MSNBC and Fox News to screw around with them for a while.

My family loves anime. We all are bit "otaku."
trinson Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2014
Secrets of my room.  No!  Sorry don't know.  I am a full blown, all out in the open, animation fanatic.  All who know me, know this.  So no need to keep it secret.  I am a grown adult man who watches cartoons and anime without fear.  I am proud to say I watch MLP, Lucky Star, Dragon Ball and TMNT (the latest series).  So yep, no nothing of this animation secret life you talk about.  I am who I am and not about to hide that for someone who can't understand.  :D

Bye the way.  What anime were you watching?  :D
Sharuda Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2014
can't help but notice that hat looks like maromi
trinson Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2014
Had to look up Maromi.  Hmmm ya I guess there is a similarity, but only cause of the size really.  It's a DevCat hat from the game Mabinogi.  Though the color and eyes do look close.  :D

Mom is just like that -.- everything hand drawn is cartoon no matter what the subject is or how violent they are. If they are hane drawn it is a cartoon and cartoons are for kids.
Capn-Smollet Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes because 'Ghost In A shell' or 'Sword Of The Stranger' are totally all about the kiddies :facepalm:
 I'm sure your Mums fantastic (as all Mums are) but damn thats annoying!
chili19 Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2013
Oh indeed it is. Even dad have to come in my defence at one point when I watched an anime and told her, it might not be for kids.
TwillightDestiny Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thankfully, my feminine parent (I enjoy comical formality, don't judge me XD) also appreciates anime to an extent...but pretty much everyone else I know is incapable of doing so.

The same with me! As if all Animes are for Kids -.-
Pkmn2Legacy Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2013
Funny thing is that people do not even seem to check before sorting it like that...  a local second hand bookstore had put manga books that (if you checked the back) rather obviously were hentai and ecchi in the childrens section...

I also wouldn't let children see stuff like Clannad, cuz I think ya need to be older to deal with the horribly sad parts of that anime :D

Ehehehee I don't have that problem because my parents got used to it when my brothers started watching anime. But they can't understand our fascination to the Simpsons or Southpark... -_-'
