A.WitherspoonVI

Pro

Recently Director Hayao Miyazaki spoke out that Otakus are damaging anime due to their obsessive behaviour and tastes. Otakus who are the prime consumers of moe and pandering shows, are thus the cause of why so many are produced.

Resolved: Otakus are causing a negative trend on artistic quality in anime.
