pedophilia is real, that's why, cartoon villains are not. how did you miss that in your desperation?
Do you know what's not real?
The game and every thing in it.
the game is a depiction made be real people who live in the real world, kind of like a drawing or a story or a movie.
cool, none of that is real so I don't care
like @zaffy2005 is unaware media isn't food or life-giving, you don't seem to be aware that media (all of it) is made by humans with intent and agendas. you cannot live off of pso2 any more than your implication that you think pso2 popped out of nothingness.
I can't tell you what was going through the mind of the staff at sega when making scenes like that, though it seems there is a full-court-press worldwide to "normalize" that.
I can however tell you what is going through your mind while defending it, and I think any sane person can.
Pretty sure a sane person that knows anything about anime would see this, realize they've seen it a hundred times before, and move on with their life.
Sarcastically pointing out I clearly don't agree with your sentiment doesn't mean I'm automatically defending the other side. I just don't waste time and QQ over things that aren't real. I don't care who it's made by, nor do I care intent. A person can intend something all they want, it falls solely on who consumes it as to how it's received.
