Old pervert master characters

I am wondering....
What do you guys think of the fact hat in many anime (DragonBall, Ranma, Naruto, Chrno Crusade, ...) the master, or the most respectable person is a pervert or a pedophil or has any other weird behaviour........
IT's fun characters usually, but anyway.... I have never really paid attention to that fact but now that i am thinking of it, in all cases it doesn't really prevent audience doing it.

well, they probably focused so much on their training that their sexual desires became bottled up.

Or they thought that just a regular wise old man would be kind of boring.

Annoying... HA.. they r the BEST. They are F*ing funny. I would have to say that hapusai (or whatever his name is) from ranama is the master of all perverts.

The only thing that bothers me though, is "why are all the perverts in anime, usally old men??"

All I can say is without the perverts were would these animes be? Without Jiraiya Naruto would be kinda humorless (sure we can depend on Naruto's idiocy but...not for too long) Roshi from Dragonball Z played a pretty important role ... now and then and the old guy in Chrono Crusade is the scientist that makes the weapons...What about Uchiyamada from GTO he's erm...yeah I think I'll stop there...

Some may see otherwise. [j/k] If you don't get it, see my sig.
*edit* Joke no longer makes sense [sig nuked]. BTW, I had the old man from FMP: Fumoffu? in my sig...
*edit2* My new sig [done by Slade] hasn't been nuked for 5 hours. I hope it's safe.

Jajaja, those characters are too funny. I can't imagine anime without perverts.
The best old perverts are:
*Master Roshi from Dragon Ball
*The grandfather of Kamome in Cyberteam in Akihabara
*The scientist in Chrono Crusade

And...young perverts...i can remember Kintaro Ôe from Golden Boy, and Ryô Saeba from City Hunter

Umm...just to make a remark...

they call him "Master Roshi" in the United States?!!!

Oh my some-higher-being, that is very interesting to the point I am just stupefied....

"Roshi" in Japanese is "Old Master."
you write it in the kanji: 老師
老 - Old
師 - Master

By that standards, calling "Master Roshi" is saying something like "Master Old Master."

They could've just called him by the other name: "Kame-Sennin" (Turtle Master). Granted he was called "Muten-Roushi," but he was more frequently called "Kame-Sennin" as the years progressed.

Who does these translations in the United States anyway!? I should really start thinking of moving to the US and offer my services as a translator.

eh, I suppose to the American Translators they are looking at it from the average viewer's point of view (i.e. they don't know nuts about Japanese, or very little): "Roshi" is just a Japanese-sounding name. It doesn't matter if it's really a title or something else, as long as they can put it there nobody can tell the difference unless they're kj1980 .

I personally am sick and tired of Old pervert master characters. Meh. To me they lose their funniness VERY quickly. One of the reasons I stopped watching Ranma 1/2 was Happosai. I might have given the series a better chance if it was the manga but I gave up on the anime version...
