A message to cosplayers

Since the 1990s, cosplaying has been an increasingly popular trend around the world. To most it’s for fun, but for others it’s a serious hobby. It’s nice and all to have fun, but the fact of the matter is that most people that cosplay have no business cosplaying. This message is for all cosplayers, but I am specifically hoping to get this message out to anime, manga, eroge cosplayers. Now, it may be your right and business to cosplay if you want, but don’t get upset if someone calls you ugly or laughs at you. I am not encouraging bullying, I am just stating the facts. Same for people that actually look right cosplaying that gets a lot of attention that they don’t want. When you cosplay, you are clearly looking to be flashy and stand out, so you shouldn’t be upset if someone calls you sexy, take a photo, or oogles at you with a dirty look in their eyes.

Basically what I am saying to cosplayers is that you should not put a big fucking flashing neon sign on your head saying “LOOK AT ME” if you don’t want people to look then judge. This message especially goes for people that cosplay and gets upset or offended when someone gives them a negative reaction. And lets not forget that the character you are cosplaying as “for fun” is likely someones favorite character, so to see someone fat and/or ugly(same thing?) cosplaying as that person’s favorite character….that is likely going to be seen as offensive or blasphemous in their eyes. Don’t put yourself in the public spotlight if you can’t take all types of criticism from all sorts of assholes, perverts, and otaku.

Finally, I’d like to highlight the fact that, to me, fat girls shouldn’t cosplay as skinny girls, black people shouldn’t cosplay as obviously non-black characters, and overall, westerners and many Japanese should refrain from cosplaying at all in public because if your body type doesn’t match the character you want to cosplay as and you aren’t cosplaying ONLY to make yourself happy, then maybe you shouldn’t cosplay because someone might have a few choice words for you. Just staying….stay within your own league. Cheers.

My 2-D attraction isn’t the same in real life

Sister post: LOLICON IS NOT BAD

Every person that opposes lolicon legalization seem have it in their minds that all lolicon fans are pedophiles and that it is not possible to not be attracted to children if you’re attracted to 2-D “children.” Well, as someone that actually knows lolicon a hell of a lot more than you do, let me be the first to say that my attraction to 2-D differs from my attraction to 3-D(real life)….well, to an extent. You see, When it comes to 2-D, almost every girl(in modern anime) and some guys are attractive to me. And while I love loli and it is my biggest 2-D attraction, it is not however my exclusive attraction. For example, I also like traps(hence why I said “some guys”) and non-loli anime girls(Example: Nagisa Furukawa’s mom….deliciously nailable).

Why I stopped watching ecchi

NOTE: This is post is primarily about ecchi-harem Anime.

I have been an anime fan for many years, and in those years I’ve seen hundreds of Anime. In my early years, I use to enjoy and crave ecchi harem Anime. I use to love watching panty shots, nude scenes and the main male character making several screw ups that look like sexual harassment and sexual assault and his reaction to said incidents. But after a while, I started to realize just how ridiculous it was and I started watch it less and less and now it’s rare for me to watch such Anime. Why? The reason might not be what you think it is.
