Manga does NOT equal porn!

In my school there's some moron who thinks manga is automatically pornography.
Also, he said he never even read a manga because he has a "life" and it's only something for peopple who can't "get some". Yeah, I told him twenty times that manga actually has a plot but he's way too stupid to listen.

I thought if I could get many people to support me he would finally get the picture through his thick skill. Is manga only about prnography? You be the judge.

(P.S. I voted no.)

P.P.S. See more in my lj. Never swore so much in 4 minutes.

Obviously everyone in this poll will vote no. The poll is rather black and white. While many manga are in no possible way to be considered p0rn some have a few more mature scenes which might make outsiders think it is.

So basically I think we can all agree that action manga like Naruto Inu Yasha Kenshin or adventure manga like cowboy bebop or even magical manga like Oh My Goddess and shoujo stuff like Fushigi Yuugi isn't p0rn at all

I believe we should narrow the poll and thread down to manga that contain explicit scenes or alot of fanservice and ask ourselves wether this is soft p0rn or not. I'm talking about manga like Get Backers (excessive fanservice) or Ai Yori Aoshi (while true romance in reality it has alot of nudity as well).

In that respect I'd like to refer to this thread where a similar discussion is going on.

PS I voted no

i deal with the SAME thing everyday from (any number of people you get it from) x10...
some even creatively call it "Japanoporno" (very scary...it ALMOST sounds like an engrish word...)
i cringe when the knuckleheads ask "Are you reading anime again?" (subtitles don't count)
just remember, if people mock you for your hobby, consider them ignorant and brush it off

100% of all manga porn? Thats an obvious no, but there is a great deal of it that is porn. Ive mostly been reading the darker, more adult oriented stuff and there is always a few explicit scenes. Berserk/Gantz/Battle Royale are my main three right now and all of them have at least one rape, or attempted rape in the case of Gantz though I haven't read all volumes. But do boobies every now and then make the entire series porn? Hell no, porn with storylines this good? It doesn't exist or I havent seen it yet. Sometimes its needed for the storyline though, like in Berserk.......

One word (although really, there are several more but for the sake of simplicity...): Nakayoshi.

No, not all manga are porn. I'm just curious about the two "yes" votes.

In my school there's some moron who thinks cats have automatically ten legs.
Also, he said he never even seen a cat because he has a "life" and it's only something for peopple who can't "get some". Yeah, I told him twenty times that cats actually have 4 legs but he's way too stupid to listen.

I thought if I could get many people to support me he would finally get the picture through his thick skill. Are cats have 10 legs? You be the judge.

(P.S. I voted yes.)

Well there are a lot of manga that are hentai, but not all of them are hentai (I don't like the word porn).
So I guess it's a no.
That's a quite stupid question since there's not only 18+ mangas/doujins out there in Japan

Lightbulb Key differnces and pointless rambling of comparsions.

: Looks up "pornography" in the Webster dictonary :

"Pictures, writing, or other material that is sexually explict and sometimes (or hense the name, all the time.) equates sex with power or violence."

: Then remembers the definition of "manga" :

Japanese graphic novels (not listed as pornography) with pictures and dialogue.


Strange, the manga definition says nothing about the word porno, sex, or anything about adult content. Also, isn't porn with using real people and it's always used for sexual desires?

Not all manga is made up of hard core sex. Usually people who say this never read a manga in their life and have no right to say such things and if you have and think manga = porn.......... you never read many manga not for 15 and younger have you? For shame. Then that must mean that all anime based off of manga must be XXX/NC-17 rated films, even Naruto and AzuDai! (No, fanservice is not porn because it's not mostly/full nudity, but just a little eye-candy.)

So manga is just a non-animated version of an anime gone to hell? Yeah, right.

Edit: If you must go off topic about a person thinking a cat has 10 legs, please use the topicoff icon. Also say why you said yes. It would help a little for not thinking you're a copycat stereotype.

His post was completly on topic. He showed how ridiculous the person's logic was that thought all manga was porn.

I don't know if he really voted "yes" but he was parodying the original post which voted "no".


The original poster should show that one to the moron at school.

EDIT: Ah, the original poster is you. Tell the dumbass at school he can't judge something he's never seen.

EDIT2: I read your blog entry. Don't even talk to that person, it's so not worth the time. Enjoy your hobby and let him spend the rest of his life trying to fit into the mold of what's "cool" and became a self-loathing robot like the rest of them.

the person in question may have only read hentai or hentai manga which is 100% porn. The person in question may not know other kinds of normal manga exists. Sometimes you just have to assume people don't know anything and ignore them instead of arguing over their stupidity. btw I voted yes just to even things up

*Shrug* You already said he hasn't even seriously read manga nor watched any anime because he has a 'life'. It is impossible to argue with this kind of people because they are already so set against it. I bet the only anime/manga he has come across are those hentai websites online.

If he keeps harassing you, just ignore him. That is the best type of treatment to give people who delight in harassing other people.

And I really mean 'ignore'. Just treat him if he was transparent. Or invisible.

Just be careful if and when he tries to bully you when you start giving him the silent treatment.

"I have a life" or "Get a life no-life" arguements are hella stupid.

It doesn't imply anything. What is life? anything that lives, breathes and all that biological ideas.

Well if someone is able to hear the "insult" on getting a life, obviously has a life, if they don't they'll be dead. I never understood those having a life arguements, it makes no sense and the person saying that are 1 of the following 3 things:

1. Can't think of any good comebacks and thus, a moron
2. Too closed minded on any issue and can't accept the opinions of others, thus a moron.
3. Just a plain moron.

"get a life" means to conform.

Anime/manga is a life, just not one to this guy because it's not what he deems to be a "cool" interest.

Screw him.

You could just ignore him, like how everyone is suggesting, or option two: play the manga game...

Pick any manga you either have already read and don't care if it gets messed up, have a spare set, or whatever if you feel trusting enough... show it to said annoying person and say "just to shut you up, I'll bet *whatever* if you can find one image which shows any sort of porno whatsoever... and when he cannot find any he'll shut up (or if he stupidly points something out which is obviously not porn oriented), just call him Amish from now on.

There's a chance it may backfire if they make fun of the fact that you did that though

Everyone knows the answer is YES

EDIT: to prove my point, since apparently posting stupid answers to stupid questions is "pointless shit," I have a new avatar.
