Ironically I find that a lot of young people who are into anime may not overtly call themselves conservatives but they beleive in a lot of the principles of conservatism and liberatianism. A lot of them eventually become conservatives or at the very least non-liberals.
I think it has to do with a LOT of animes NOT doing the 80’s-90’s cartoon morality that stresses the group think and “play nice and share with everyone” mentality, but Anime instead stresses individualism or the “romantic ronin samurai ideal” which is something completely different than the socialist brainwashing they get from the Hollyweird media.
I mean the first Bleach Arc was all about Ichigo going in challenging the system and essentially exposing the brainwashing Aizen did to the rest of Sopul Society. Even if Ichigo didn’t know that Aizen was behind it he knew it was WRONG and worked to FIGHT it.
A lot of Anime series use Heroes who are downright Awesome in terms of living embodiments of “Absolute Morality”.
“Ironically I find that a lot of young people who are into anime may not overtly call themselves conservatives but they beleive in a lot of the principles of conservatism and liberatianism.”
Exactly. Almost every hero aside from the obvious high school male kid, surrounded by beautiful girls harem’ has the embodiment of conservatism. Try Zetman where the hero is just a kid who wants just stop the evil monsters using his monster powers which were not his in the first place. Even from Code Geass to Gundam, the heroes just want to prevail over evil. Period.
No wonder I’m more into manga..
