OtakO’clock Episode 13: Shonen Anime

48 0

Shonen: the oldest type of anime, and the genre which continues to be the biggest and most profitable of anime genres. Every shonen has certain tropes and characteristics that make it distinctively shonen (like filler), and we discuss how those tropes have evolved and which ones remain consistent throughout the decades. In addition, we talk about how shonen has influenced all sorts of other genres, from the crossover between shonen and sentai shows to American action movies through its influence on the Matrix.
