By your logic, defending Horikoshi means your saying it's alright to draw 15 year old girls nude? it's okay to be a pedo? i don't think so??! He's a pervert, and a transphobic, and then he made a sorry excuse for a character called mineta.
I wish you could’ve heard the long exasperated sigh I did just now.
Look, this little fanservice that the fans like you are getting so angry about, doesn’t bother me, at all. Fanservice is not new, it’s something that’s existed for a long time now and it’s something that will always be around.
In manga/anime there will always be those cliche tropes like the girls in the hot springs and that one character trying to peek but ends up failing miserably, that one scene where the mc accidentally grabs a girls boob/that one scene where the mc gets his face in a girls chest or the girl lands on top of him, and there will always be that character with BIG boobs. It will always be there.
I’ve watched so much anime and seen a lot of anime with ecchi in it (fairytail, soul eater, highschool of the dead, freezing, prison school, panty and stocking, dragonball, renai boukun, nanatsu no taiza, miss kobayashi chi, no game no life, kill la kill, gurren lagann etc) so the little amount of fanservice we get in bnha doesn’t bother me.
I’ve seen so many forms of fanservice especially after reading fairytail for a long time so it’s pretty much normal to me now, I only cringe when it’s just goes overboard.
I can’t even compare bnha to any of those because the amount of fanservice each of them have is off the charts. I honestly can’t understand why people get so upset over a small amount of fanservice though, really, I mean I assumed that they probably just started watching anime maybe? Because there are so much anime with school girls ‘who are sexualized’ and ‘underage’.
Horikoshi said he likes ‘plump’ girls, which means he likes women with slightly more body fat than normal, it doesn’t literally mean that he loves chubby 15 year old girls ffs. If you like dark skinned guys or girls, wouldn’t you draw them???
Also, going by your logic, if Horikoshi draws the girls in bnha nude and that makes him a pedophile, then that means more than 50% of shounen mangaka are also pedophile’s. Even Masashi Kishimoto, Akira Toriyama, and probably Eichirou Oda too, because they’ve all drawn their women nude before, more than once. Does that mean they’re all sexualizing minors and preying on little girls? :0
Or what about me? I have a five year old oc that I drew having a bath with his older sister, does that make me a pedophile too? :)
I think out of all the topics in the discourse, the one I don’t understand is this transphobic bs, like I really don’t understand it.
We didn’t even know that Magne was a transgender until he died. I think the reason why people believe Horikoshi is transphobic is because most of them read the fanscans.
In one of the early chapters of this arc, Shigraki referred to Magne as a ‘tranny’ which is pretty offensive, he said something similar in another chapter but I can’t remember the details but those words were never used in the official translation.
The thing is, too many people don’t know that the chapters we read every week are scanned by fans, they’re not the real deal. My guess is that the Japanese character that’s used to refer to Magne when other people are talking about him is a gender neutral term probably??
I think most people are just salty over the fact that Horikoshi killed off a transgender character. :/
Now when it comes to Tiger, people say that he’s just a stupid stereotype of trans woman I believe, which doesn’t really make sense to me. First of all, Tiger’s gender was only addressed once when Kirishima said “he’s the wring gender and the wrong genre” or something along those lines. But since then it’s never been addressed and honestly Tiger is a really chill dude, so I don’t understand how he’s a dumb stereotype.
