If I remember J-Pop had a surge of popularity in the early 2000's along with the anime community getting bigger and all the remakes of Jpn movies. So i dont think its an issue of one being more popular then the other (obv Kpop is worldwide though) but one was trendy 10 years ago and this is trendy now

Yeah who knows in 10 years Reggae might be the new hip music! 

I remember being more into Visual Kei back then though. Now that is a tiny niche of people heh.

But JPop and Kpop have their own good and bad. I mean you like what you like.

Can jobo just stick to what he does best: being an anime elitist gatekeeping jobless loser whose inappropriate interest in loli hentai makes everyone uncomfortable rather than giving some shit unresearched opinion on a subject he’s only talking about because of the global popularity of BTS/kpop atm

Hello, kinda new to the forums but I been lurking on the site since about February.

Anime Man.. I use to enjoy his videos. Now most of them are just noise. He's starting to judge things before giving them a try, and his whining about too much of this is being made, not enough of that is being made, is getting annoying.

I avoid his "Lets Fight" topics, they give me headaches.

 

AkiDearest... I don't watch much of her videos. If the title sounds interesting enough I'll poke at it and give it a watch. Is there an explanation on her obsession with underwear?

 

They're probably the only Ani-Tubers that I follow and only watch them out of boredom. I should find a Ani-Tuber who isn't as annoying as Joey has become.

K-Pop tends to be more popular because it has a really westernized sound, making genres like trap or R&B. In fact, a lot of the producers are actually westerners, or collaborations between western producers and Korean producers. A lot of them basically sound like something you'd hear on the radio in America, but are in Korean. Also, the outfits look pretty western too, like something you'd see in a high-fashion magazine:

I don't really follow a ton of J-pop, but from what I can tell, a lot of it feels very creepy and pedo-ish to the western world. Stuff like AKB48, which features 14-18 year old girls doing cutesy/sexualized dances in school girl uniforms is going to be a turn-off to most western people. I'm sure there is other J-pop which is "good," but I think when a lot of people think of J-pop they think of this kind of stuff and it makes them afraid to give it a try. (No offense to anyone here who loves J-pop, but you have to admit this side is creepy and pretty prevalent.)

I’m going to have to disagree with you on this. Both kpop and jpop pander yo creepy older men it’s just that one is more known for it. Let’s not act like there haven’t been kpop who have come out saying they were forced to do thing for older men. The difference between the two is how they market their product. Jpop groups are now less about creepy men and more about younger the people, Nogizaka46 AKB48’s rival group is very popular with younger women something AKB48 isn’t. 

Long story short kpop has done a much better job of promoting overseas because that’s what they want unlike jpop who seems adamant/just fine promoting nationally. But when it comes to creeps both of them have them and their obsession with young girls is unhealthy 

 

That's true, both industries really do take advantage of its idols. From what I've heard more K-pop idols are very poor and are indebted to their company, unless they're the top K-pop groups like BTS or Twice. And I've heard that unpopular K-pop groups are forced to perform sexual favors to try to get popular. But from a face value, like just watching a K-pop music video or listening to their music, I think it gives off a lot less vibes of pedophilia. The vibe tends to be "Hey look we're cool and stylish young adults doing fun choreographies" rather than "Teehee we're little middle schoolers/high schoolers dancing in tiny school uniforms for older men!"

As an American, there have been a few K-pop videos that make me feel uncomfortable, but for the most part I feel way more comfortable watching it than the J-pop I've seen.

Also, these neckbeards who say “muh naked lolis aren’t sexualized! Shut up feminazis!” Are usually the first to get triggered the moment a male character is sexualized in the slightest, or they make fun of it and act like it’s dumb .

Like he has plenty of videos where yaoi is the punchline. But why...? Are gay men funny? Is sexy media created for women funny? 

One thing that really annoys me about all these anime youtubers is how they act like Boku no Pico is the devils spawn. Like OH MY GOD NO ITS A LITTLE BOY HAVING SEX. EWWW!1!!! NASTY! 

While I agree that shotacon stuff like Boku no Pico is really gross and inappropriate, why is Boku no Pico a joke used for shock value, while lolicon hentai is just seen as... sexy? 

Sexy little boys = shock value/funny

Sexy little girls = Wow S-tier waifu, I’d fap to that 

Why? I guess some men seriously can’t realize how disgusting it is to sexualized children until it’s their own gender being sexualized. 

 

they dont want to admit its disgusting because it panders to them they dont care if its fucked up all that matters is they get to view degrading porn featuring women and brag about it
