It's shame that the kiss-play figure is not food toy.

It's a good thing that I was told that this is a cultural thing with nothing to do with sexual perversity at all - else I would be really confused about now.

It's about a "cultural thing" as 17-year-olds going on a murder spree in their high school is an American "cultural thing".

It's PART of culture (since it's not taking place in a completely isolated bubble), but by no means is it a part of culture that's viewed as "normal" by the general public.

Mmm. Aren't stories and fairy tales about big monsters eating children more Central European in origin?

The original stories Red Riding Hood comes from (to pick one particularly well-documented example) are a bit racier than their modern counterparts. Interesting area of lit history to study.

Bonus drooling 'Cons:

so the japanese manage to draw a snuff comic with megatron and prime, easy to recognize and all, and mikey bay has done what he is doing..
i thought these weren't as good as the ones cliffjumper has in one of the movie conversations, though

:\
where did it all go wrong?

Question

Haven't we had Japanese comics with Destrons eating people before?

Convoy playing basketball is just the cutest thing ever.

And not unprecedented, if I recall some dodgy dialogue* from the cartoon where Op asked Spike about his drooling.

* - Yes, I know it hardly narrows it down...

Yes, but that's not as cute as Prime actually holding the hoop. What a guy.

People buy stories in which bad guys do bad things to prove they're bad.

That's pretty much it.

If I'm understanding "moe" correctly from links people have posted, readers like the protective element of the robots saving the infantilised women from the howwid evil monsters -- it's supposed to invoke outrage, but in the sense of wanting things to not happen to the characters, rather than producing images for people to wank over. If people wanted that, they'd buy actual porn or hentai.

It's like rape (and killing female supporting characters to get at the hero) is a thoroughly overused dramatic plot device in American comics. "Women in refrigerators" syndrome. Heavily exploitative, but not porn.
