1. There may be a higher level of incest, but the rate of this occurrence would be of such a fractional level ir has no real meaning or consequence. And indeed it is mothers with sons which is the main one usually.

But. This is almost entirely a media thing. Whereas a lot of Western countries had made sex more and more a activity almost like sport, competitive and with strangers, in Japan for the last 50 years it`s become the opposite.
Since the conversative backlash in the 60`s, media representations of sexual behaviour have become more sparse and more disapproved of. When younger people adapted with things like compensated dating, the media immediately picked up on this and started harsh repressive aggrandizing of the topic.
Basically the result of all these sorts of things is that the individual now in Japan is more isolated than ever before, and as such the illicit portrayals of sex started to take into account more immediate relationships as fantasies- because this is something the target audience could relate to.
Everyone can relate to fucking their mother (or sister), as all it requires is relating to the idea of family. A order of magnitude less can relate to going to a mixer, seducing someone, taking them home, and having sex with them.
It`s the same story with girl games. We get all these simulations of relationships that we build, with people immediately close to us.
There`s no real acceptance of sexual relationships with strangers unless it`s outright rape or harassment.
So rather than it being snowballed by the media, it`s been snowballed by fictional adult-content matter in general. Though at certain points, the media have conflated particular stories, again mother-son relationships rather than sibling or father-x incest.

2. Is this a trap?
The lost decade is a huge debate. Many people have written books on it. I can give you a simple view that I`ve come to see, but you really should just read more about this if you are curious.
The economic downturn is no myth. Major companies found their capital gone overnight. There was a large contraction in domestic stock. Why people call it a myth is because other certain economic measures still saw growth. For instance trade surplus rised (which is interesting given that lack of import is exactly one of the impacts of the lost decade). Often sited is living standards improving, however this is related to standards of products rising, prices of food and certain commodities being fix to cheaper prices. Really, Japan was stagflating for most of the period despite the perceived contraction of Japanese business.
So, the answer is probably, based on a purely economic persuasion, no.
However the main reason its call the lost decade isnt economic, which is what a lot of prominent economists like to ignore. its called that because of the perceived decline in cultural affluence.
there was a large decline in real wages, between 10 and 15 percent, on average, in the 1990s. people stopped consuming as much. publishing, advertising, and television companies downsized operations significantly.
see when things like private schools reduce their prices, food gets cheaper, technology is improved raising living standards, and a hundred other factors become better for consumers, you can argue that the net effect wasnt deleterious for the population.
however, despite all these factors you as a consumer see everyone spending less, and that takes its toll on you. for instance just the fashion of the day became a lot less flamboyant in a couple of years, despite people still owning the clothes they had.
it was a shift in thinking- well a crash in thinking, on the part of the everyday person. no longer was it seen as simply okay to believe in growth and investment, especially when suddenly the banks changed loan conditions radically.
and to say this was a contrast to the 60s and 70s, especially the izanagi boom, is a huge understatement.
yes the lost decade was certainly a thing. the economic effects may have been limited but in the consciousness of japanese society it was and still is apocalyptic.
of course, to talk about the lost decade has also been hugely important politically, so its gained importance that way as well.

3. you have to be able to draw well.
or be really good at stories.
so that already limits the amount of people who can hugely.
being a mangaka also pays peanuts. as im sure you know doujinshi run on a loss over 90 percent of the time, and for instance a large proportion of adult comics artists make virtually no money.
you have to be successful to make any kind of decent wage.
so you really need to have a passion for it to be a mangaka.
which is also why we have all the assistants earning nothing we do, because theyre passionate about manga.
no its a terrible industry for most of the people who partake in it. its also morally draining. even for mangaka who make a wage, their works may not be the most popular and so they wont feel great.
which is why we get stuff like inumaru rin commiting suicide and countless other examples.
no its a terrible industry to be in. your chances of making it are miniscule. and its based on your own skill so you are constantly questioning yourself.
also the way publishers and editors operate doesnt leave much freedom as to how you can express your stories either.

being a hollywood director i imagine would be a lot more about knowing the right person and being able to self promote well.

You profile pic wimp. Look at this guy.

Gonzo-nyan | 07-27-14, 11:38 PM
It's okay, it was just something that made me wonder for some reason.

Considering I have 800+ books on my backlog, I plan on being quite busy with it later in life once I'm done with most old games and anime.

That's what I think too. Like, I read them and think that they are not that grand as many people seem to think.

I know, just not my top priority.

Thanks for the birthday wishes, Stellio!

Chiyo has orange-hair tho.

People didn't like the DRAMA in Hataraku Maou. I found that the drama is Gintama-serious, pretty light-hearted. Basically a less serious version of Kore wa Zombie Desu Ka?

Too many Yusa Emi moments especially when her colleague starts shipping her... :3

And of course, Komoe-sensei is as adult as how all chracters in Fate/Stay Night are over the age of 18. =))) With DDK-vision, Komoe-sensei is a grown-up. Afterall, he is not a lolicon. =)))))))

DDK and Dolphy are lewd. They love ths pic.

X10A_Freedom | 07-24-14, 9:34 PM
Yes, dat redhead was delicious in EP1. DEM CAMERA ANGLES too.

Troll'd DDK.

Lol Yusa Emi in your favs nao... <3

X10A_Freedom | 07-24-14, 9:06 PM
:3 :3 :3

Dat redhead who's sew shy. <3

As for ratings, ever heard of Sturgeon's Law? :D

X10A_Freedom | 07-23-14, 1:20 AM
Why did you drop Nozaki? SO MUCH LEG.

Gonzo-nyan | 07-21-14, 11:50 PM
I know this may seem random, but did you respond to my last comment and deleted it or am I just imagining you did?

Gonzo-nyan | 07-16-14, 10:45 PM
It's better to be an S than an M~

The ones I'm wanting to see are Slint, Jack White, Beck, The Replacements, Against Me, and Sun Kil Moon. Right now I'm reading The Plague by Albert Camus, Less than Nothing by Slavoj Zizek, and H.P. Lovecraft short stories. Games I'm playing to beat are Tales of Xillia, Chrono Cross, FF6, FF9, and Grandia.

That's cool. You should tell him that, since he thinks everyone hates him and his reviews. ;__;

Thank you~ It's one of my top rated ones and it deserves it.
Ugh, I don't know. I'm hesitant to start it from what I've heard about it...

Gonzo-nyan | 07-16-14, 7:13 PM
Hmm, I'm the opposite. I have time for leisure stuff since I'm off for the summer! Summer school and chilling with friends daily is soo boring~ Ohhh, so you're still a shouta? :3

As I've said, nothing really super happening, although I might go to Forecastle 2014 to see some bands playing there. Mostly I've been catching up on a lot of shows to release the pot on anime quickly. This is so I can finish a lot of books and games more often...

Someone asked me what I thought the best reviewer was on my ask.fm and I said veronin you were. :)
