>>188617263>Can you tell me which anime this graph is referring to?
A lot of them, actually. Pretty much every anime (or piece of literature) that offers an abundance simple straightforward entertainment like comedy, sex, pretty visuals, a good soundtrack and so on, in other words: has a low accessibility level, speaks to the low-intelligence crowd. Pretty much every anime/manga that has intricate themes, explores its characters, is well-structured and well-edited, in other words: something to think about, offers intellectual enjoyment. If an anime or manga manages to incorporate aspects of both, it will match that graph quite accurately.
Now, to explain the low for average-intelligence people ... well, they do generally have a problem grasping the meta-narrative elements that make things interesting to those with a deeper understanding of culture and science. And they do dismiss low-level enjoyment far too easily because they think it to be beneath them.
Manga and anime that examplify what the graph describes are, as I said, maifold, but someone who I always regarded as an easy-to-enjoy-but-hard-to-fully-appreciate author is Go Nagai. Another is Togashi. Or, if we look at anime direction instead of writing, Ikuhara.
The opposite is also true for many anime: Things that are hard to get into because they offer no instant gratification, but also ring rather hollow in the big picture. They usually get called "pretentious", because they try very hard to appear "serious", "artsy" or "deep" by design, but fail to actually substanciate that.
Yuasa is a perfect example for that kind of phenomenon. Also the things this retard ( >>188619563
