#2099 – Anime Physics

Physics – especially time – seems to work differently in anime than in real life. Inner thoughts that happen in a fraction of a second take several minutes, and all the while things around the character seem to move in slow motion.

#1827 – Jiggle Physics

Man, remember the Dead or Alive fighting game, and it’s “jiggle physics?” It was titillating (which is a single entendre here, I think) for about five minutes when I was 15 or so, then I wanted to turn the damn effect off because it was just off-putting. As the Wife said of the anime we watched five minutes of (and then turned off because it was weird and kinda gross with the whole sexualized high school girls thing), boobs don’t bounce and jiggle like that every time a woman does anything.

Perhaps…perhaps anime isn’t the bastion of anatomy and physics we were led to believe?

#1769 – Anime

I realize Japan has a very different culture than America, but it does get a little old when virtually every single series I watch features the same overly-sexualized young teens and the breathy, squeaky vocal delivery.
