I think that anime cartoons should be banned. There are many reasons of it . It can harmfully influence children. The most important and meaningful reason why anime cartoons should be banned is an inappropriate information for children. First of all it is platitude. Recently more and more obscenity scenes appear in anime cartoons. It is unacceptable because of age limitation. According to Aleardo Zanghellini (2009) Yaoi " is a Japanese genre of anime, which focus on love between males. It shows love not only between man " man, but also boy " man, so "its erotic and even sexually explicit subject matter makes yaoi /BL work a possible target for censorship in some western countries". As it was mentioned in the article "Adolescents' anime-Inspired "Fan fictions": An Exploration of Multiliteracies" anime includes inappropriate topics, because "the Japanese have a much better grip on gays, sex, violence etc. than we do" (Kelly Chandler-Oclott & Donna Mahar, 2003). Children used to watch it in cartoons and they begin to think that it is normal, so it can lead to psychological destroy. Such obscenity scenes are unacceptable in cartoons. In early age children have flexible memory and they are arresting all seen and heard. Therefore, all the information that a child absorbed in shildhood fixed in his mind forever and parents should be very cautious in choosing anime cartoons, because many of them are full of obscenity.
What about cartoon "Avatar"??? It teaches children and even adults moral things such as kindness, tenderness, love etc. My little brother finally understood after this cartoon that his behavior frustrated us especially parents. then he became polite, kind but at the same time he still stay manly and strong. I am sure that this is not single example. I recommend you to watch "Avatar" if you did not do that yet.
I can disagree with you, because researches prove that today more and more anime cartoons with violence scenes appear. It is good that some children can become more polite and kind with the help of anime cartoons, but practice shows that it has more negative effects on children's behaviour than positive. According to Napier (2001) animated features account for about 50% of all movie tickets sales in Japan. Anime"s fan clubs appear in different world corners and the number of fans increase every year, it has grown into an important social and cultural phenomenon especially in Asia. The amount of money spent on the purchase of CDs, books, pictures and notebooks featuring anime increases every day, so it became a big business. Even America has caught up in this wave. Anime cartoons are so powerful that its influence can even be seen in children at early ages. They spend most of their time in front of television and cannot break away from it. As scientists proved, pupils devote their time to lessons about 12 hours a week, but 18 hours to cartoons. They cannot control themselves and manage their time. So it is obviously an addiction. The consequences of anime cartoons" addiction can be underachievement in school, psychological problems and health damage. A big number of people today are addicted on anime cartoons, so despite although it seems to be not serious, it can lead to unacceptable results.
Again I say you that anime has many advantages. My arguments: 1) study history. For instance,Japanese culture and history is ingrained very much in anime, even those that take place outside of Japan. There are a number of anime that take place in ancient Japan or during a specific time in Japanese history. 2) show real life. for example, Romance in anime very rarely subscribes to the typical "love at first sight" or "living happily ever after." Over the course of anime series, the relationship between two characters grows and changes, and they face many misunderstandings, betrayals, and love triangles along the way. Emotions and inner conflicts run strong and deep in anime relationships. 3) depth characters and depth of the story...
Yes, there are some advantages of anime cartoons, but against disadvantages are more dangerous. Against it is showing violence in cartoons. Cartoon"s characters fight with each other, and even positive characters kill people, so after this children will think that murders for a good reason are justified. According to Huston children at the age of four spend about 50-70 minutes in front of television, watching cartoons, most of which is animated cartoons. Researches showed that 92% of children"s Saturday programs contain aggressive scenes and immoral actions. Showing violence in cartons can lead to some negative effects, which cause children"s behavior. For example: when a child sees the violence in cartoons he/she can be aggressive in real life and take it as a normal behavior. So eventually children will become desensitized to the victim of crime. Another side o f this issue is the fact that today there are a lot of anime cartoons, in which some characters remain uninjured, so it creates misconceptions about the death. Because of it some children fight with each other and sometimes can really injure someone. This information is not for children, because there is a thin border between reality and fantasy. Therefore, fights and murders in anime cartoons can form a mistaken conception of the world and a man, which can lead to serious consequences.
