"Too Hot for TV": Japanese Fans Rank Risqué Anime
Anime can go in some pretty “adult” directions on occasions, even just in terms of jokes made — not that Western television is any less guilty of jokes that go over kids’ heads. But generally when something is a little too mature, it goes straight to DVD. Sometimes, that’s a pretty fine line… and Japanese fans spoke up about which shows they think were too hot for TV.
Everyone’s favorite ranking site Goo asked fans which shows they were shocked to see make it to television. The full results are available over on the site, but here’s a run-down of the top ten.
8. Manyu Hiken-cho
2. To Love-Ru
1. Ranma 1/2
Runners-up on the list included Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt, Highschool of the Dead, and Cream Lemon.
