Taboo: The anime you watch that you think would be frowned upon

Time to flip the question around for our second taboo feature!  In our first article we discussed content that you consider taboo.  Content that you don't want to see in your anime.  It's completely fine for you to pick and choose what type of content you want to watch.  Now let's take a look at the content you do watch, and what you think others may say about it.

We're not talking about anime in general, because we know that plenty of people look down on those that view anime.  That's another topic in and of itself.  We're looking specifically at anime that you own, and content that's in it that might turn a few heads.  You may be fine with that content, but once again, showing it to specific people may end up changing their opinions of you.

I hate to beat a dead horse here, but I once again have to turn to Dance in the Vampire Bund for my selection.  I can't say enough good things about the show because it really is enjoyable.  That's why I find it so unfortunate to see that some of the content in the show is not just risque, it's quite uncomfortable.  That's coming from an American perspective, I guess.  There are a number of friends/family I know would enjoy the show, but I dare not show it to them because I know their jaws would hit the floor with that uncomfortable content.  I'm not a fan of it either in any way, but I am willing to look past/through it for the overall show.

No need to be shy...time to fess up about the taboo anime content that you own or have seen.  What anime content are you okay with, but you fear that others might judge you for it?


  1. Highschool of the Dead and Hyakka Ryōran Samurai Girls with all the fanservice.

    K-on! with all the kawaii/loli stuff.
