Japanese Anime

While I don't pretend to be an expert on Anime or Manga, there are some themes that seem to endlessly recur: A sweet young thing in schoolgirl dress is corrupted. Usually there are scenes of lesbianism, bondage and rape. The men are given scant attention, unless they are some kind of multi-phallic monster or given to animal/fantasy characteristics. Sometimes the women will be fantastically endowed, with the usual saucer eyes and breasts larger than their head. There is a lot of fluid depicted and explosive art and lettering to signify climax. Interestingly, genitalia is rarely displayed. Whether this is convention or post-war censorship, I don't know. While the stylized graphics can be quite beautiful, the subject matter usually makes me cringe. It is my understanding that these graphic books, sometimes hundreds of pages long, are read quite publically in Japan without shame. Strange...
