5 Unreasonably Ignored Topics in Anime

Shinigami-sama: ''Hello everyone! It has been a long time since I have written a post for you that relates different shows into one single idea. Now, I will share with you my impressions on 5 very ignored topics that don’t really appear in anime a lot during the last couple of seasons. I hope this new short post of mine brings a smile on your face!

Gambling, romance and specific animal types – the lack of which one makes you ponder the most?

Also, do feel free to argue my reasoning and share your opinion on the subject in the comments – I always love a good, steady argument with a fellow anime and manga appreciator.

Here is my list of five most ignored topics in anime!''

I disagree with the author of this in that I think a show could work with a main theme of hatred. I was reading The Stars My Destination last year and that story of pure hatred driving on a relentless pursuit of revenge was absolutely fantastic.

If a studio get the story right then an anime centred around hatred could turn out to be a very good one.

I agree with you. But is hatred really being ignored? I mean most anime are filled with the "hatred" theme.

I'm not saying that its really being ignored, it's just not being thought about as a main plot point.

There are quite a lot of anime, as you say, which feature hatred of something or someone but I wouldn't say there are many (or any, I don't know) where that is the driving force behind the story.

Thats true though, I have also not seen an anime focusing on hatred alone as a plot point.

I disagree with the Hatred Point. It really depends on the show you watch. In addition, since Hatred is such a wide-ranging emotion it can be shown both blatantly and subtly . For example, many people consider Rage a form of Hatred. How often in Shounen anime do we see our main character power up in order to avenge a fallen friend. (DBZ, anyone?)

Going off of my previous example, we can also exchange hatred into numerous other driving forces since they are so closely associated. Vengeance, Rage, Spite, Jealousy, Hostility, and many others can all can be associated with Hatred.

I also sort of disagree with your stock market point since the relatively recent release of [C]: Control contradicts everything stated there.

I enjoyed reading the article, though, I'm glad to see fellow fans generating discussion.

Berserk has a lot of hatred in it. I think Berserk is the best example of hatred in a manga.

They is a lot of anime with hatred in it. Just about every battle manga/anime has hatred in it. Shamo is pretty much a manga that thrives off hatred and its good. Ichi the Killer is another hatred manga but man that shit is gruesome and funny.

I was going to take this seriously but it seems to be a joke.
