After watching a bunch of anime, reading Jojo, and playing Japanese games, I was wondering, why is it that Japan is able to have characters with strange or outrageous abilities and weapons, yet have them still be formidable or interesting, while America just scoffs at them and proceeds to treat them as goofy Golden/Silver Age shit or make them SUPER SRS TO FIT MODERN TIMES?
Like music. I mean, here in America, only sound powers are taken seriously like with Black Canary and Banshee, but ones who actually do use instruments are treated as silly or LOLNEILPATRICKHARRIS, while in a bunch of anime, videogames, and manga, characters who use instruments like I-No from Guilty Gear here are actually competent and treated as legit threats
