    Music can make even weak anime great

    A look into anime shows that are not very well scripted but because of high intensity and well crafted music, it is able to make what is boring at times exciting to the eyes and ears.

    • To this day although he admits the plot is lacking, my boyfriend still clings to Dragon Ball Z as one of the best animes ever made "because of the soundtrack." I don't agree it was that great but clearly music affects people deeply in how they respond to a show, whether they know it or not! – Slaidey 5 years ago

    • I feel this way about Elfen Lied; its opening is beautiful but the show itself is horrendously gratuitous with its violence and shock value. – smarrie 5 years ago

    • How I feel about Terror in Resonance...there are a lot of plot holes, yet the music is so amazing and emotional, it still comes out as one of my favorite series. – psychedelicreme 5 years ago

    Television shows without closure

    A look at series that had not given the audience closure due to a bad ending to the series or being canceled by network heads. Also a look at shows that are being rebooted with a attempt to bring back the old audience from before the series ended to watch the show.

    • It would be interesting to look at the way Netflix and other online streaming platforms buy cancelled TV shows and reboot them - such as Degrassi or The Mindy Project. – dsubject 5 years ago

    • Cult followings have emerged from such cancellations, so it would be interesting to see how certain fandoms have kept the spirit of canceled shows alive. Firefly, for example, got the movie Serenity due to the massive popularity of the show, even after its cancellation. – scmblack 5 years ago

    • Very interesting topic to explore. I feel like now is the day in age that, many television shows are made, but only a lucky, lucky few are actually successful due to ratings. You can have the most well produced, written, and acted TV show, but if people are not watching, then it gets cancelled, which is very unfortunate. But you can definitely, find TV shows that have gone through that, and maybe find the reason why they were cancelled. – ADenkyirah 5 years ago

    The dark attraction to violence in anime

    A question of whether violence attract more audience to anime. Why are audiences attracted to bloodshed, gore and violence? A recent study from researchers at the University of Augsburg, Germany and the University of Wisconsin-Madison discovered that people are more likely to watch movies and anime with gory scenes of violence if they felt there was meaning in confronting violent aspects of real life.

    • Some anime have violence, just like some books, movies, games, tv shows, etc. There are plenty of anime that have no violence and are still considered great among their many fans. Violence in fiction is often put in to raise the stakes. If our protagonist could be hurt/killed audiences get more invested in their well being due to the fact that their well being isnt guaranteed. Thats true with ALL fiction (and a lot of non fiction). Your topic proposal lacks any type of real question to be investigated. A topic that you could explore with this could be comparing the use of violence in popular anime. Is there a connection between the desprate and brutal struggle of the Attack on Titan universe and the militaristic violence of the Bleach universe. Narrow down the topic and explore it more otherwise all you're saying is "things have violence in them" – Cojo 5 years ago

    • The reason why I watched Hellsing:Ultimate and Black Lagoon. Okay, it was more the fight scenes than the violence. What if you made the distinction between the two and also give examples of violence that works and violence that doesn't work? (Like Tokyo Ghoul - too violent and disturbing for my taste.) – OkaNaimo0819 5 months ago

    these movie of course are attracting to the audience who grew up watching the first and second, but Hollywood has begun to make the terminator concept redundant because it just never ends. They just continue to keep the series going by having little scenes at the end of movies making you wait for a sequel of a redundant film that should have ended after the unforgettable Terminator 2 Judgement Day. Yet they continue to milk everything they can out of something that has begun to lessen in its greatness as it did years ago.

    The Four Timelines of The Terminator Movies

    The show itself was great but it lacked character development with Suna even though the was about show was about Takeo’s love story it could of been a better to add more character dept in someone who played such a pivotal role as Suna did.

    I thought that the list of recommendation were good but I think some important ones were left out, such as psycho-pass which goes into the area of the concept of humanity and moral actions. Also it is in my opinion better not to have people start watching long series like Pokemon because it can put people off from considering watching anime.
