BURNING MANLY SPIRIT – The Journey of MANLINESS
It’s been said that otaku are nothing but MANCHILDREN who only think about 2D girls and marrying pillows/consoles/computers/what have you. And for the most part, it’s quite true.
It’s also been said that most otaku are usually male, in their late teens to late 20s, although y9ou don’t have to fall into that age group to be a societial reject the Japanese know how.
And it’s also painfully ironic that the Japanese have had to, until recently, turn to anime for their fix of manliness. Mostly of the super robot variety.
…So yeah, I’m going to examine several shows and explain the JOURNEY OF BEING A MAN.
I was totally not inspired by a book I was reading. Nor is this an excuse to bash Eva. Okay, maybe it is. But it’s for a good reason.
The Youtube video? It felt appropriate.
