Fair do's I'll agree with that, and I never elaborated. I believe the reason the West is creativily bankrupt right now is because of moral absolutism. Everything needs to "goodies and baddies", and baddies must always lose otherwise the kids will go out and be baddies! And the show must exhol family virtues and be dumbed down enough for global audiences and must have a moral blarghh. Its like 80's US with its ocean of crappy family sitcoms. Furthermore, shows *must* have the right political message, otherwise REEEE PUNCH NAZIS or REEEE DEGENERACY!>>95172238
The East can pump out some bad shit, but its not true to say they're more creatively bankrupt. In my opinion anyway, waifu shit isn't actually *that* big even just in anime, you just see it all the time because you're on 4chan.>where you can at least be a bit more experimental even if it means going full tumblr
You can't though. Its the opposite, because people have autism for moral absolutism (because of Christianity) in the West, they turn everything into a "good vs evil" thing and god forbid you have the wrong political ideas, whereas the East poke and prod from different points of view.
