Well, yeah. No offense meant, but I'm just stating the obvious - why do all manga/anime characters have such large eyes?

Honestly i find that the large eyes is what sets cute anime girls apart from cute 3D girls lol.
As long as they're not super huge (which i run into a lot if i try a shoujo) then i would say the eyes are a more appealing factor than the breasts.

But those are in the manga world, not actual Japan. XD

I am sure even most who get fake boobs don't want the ridiculously giant ones in manga/anime.

No matter how small the sizes of movie actresses are, they are still real people. Manga/anime fans just want what's impossible in real life because that has become their "culture".

Quote from lemondude
what are these artists smoking, they ever go outside? Asian woman have small breasts in general. Also in high school most didn't fully develop yet, but these anime have some crazy sizes.

No wonder fake boobs is on the rise in japan.

BTW, not saying there are no big melons in japan just not many. Many are B at best. if that

I don't see any connection between oversized manga boobs and fake boobs rising.
From my experience 95% of ridiculously huge boobs appear in shonen manga/anime, which suggests that they're a male fantasy rather than a female ideal.

the character desgins were first orientated at western persons (sorry for my grammar but i don´t know how i should put this in english). Now it became common sense to make the breasts in mangas bigger then normal. You can also see it on the eyes. Western people have bigger eyes then asian people. they draw the manga eyes like that because of the same reason as the boobs.

I don't mind all the big boobs simply because it is aimed at a male demographic (and you would have to be stupid to ignore the fact a lot of males fantasise about massive breasts), I have more of a problem about how they draw the boobs, which is terrible, and what they make those poor girls do, sometimes without bras. Can you imagine how much that would hurt?

I want to see a manga where 40 years lapses and those same big boobs are now sagging and have caused back problems. Not really, I love the fan service.

it's like a "magicians sexy partner" while doing a show. they draw away attention from plotholes and stupid shit.

This is because—simply put—we all want what we can't have. Why aren't we getting on the portrayal of women in movies? Not every woman is a size 0 and 5'10", but you wouldn't know that if you looked at most leading ladies. It's because, as sad as it is, people want to look at things they deem attractive. It's all just fanservice. This is the world we live in.

But the difference between anime girls with big breasts and actual girls is that the anime girls have big breasts but almost always a slim and sexy body lmao >>
But sometimes those ridiculously large ones just annoy me lol.

Im only okay with redicously large breasts of therye meant as a joke or pun for the manga.

I don't really mind the big boobs(ok I'm male), but the fanservice shouldn't worsen the plot of a sereies.Also I have to say that some mangakas go to far with the boob size, so that it isn't cute or sexy or whatever anymore.
Besides, ok the boob-size with slim body and everything doesn't exist in real life, but a manga doesn't have to be realistic. A mangaka can write and draw what he wants as long as the series is popular and it sells.

Manga is fiction.

Why does it have to represent the real world?

All I know is that I hate the portrayal in manga because A LOT of Asian women very rarely have such large busts.

They're "oversized" because unlike reality, 2D women are usually close to perfect
