Yeah,

I totally agree. You have a gift with words. That explains rather well why I liked Shinichi so much.

Yes.

But that happened off-screen, didn't it? I don't know, it's been a few years.

Yes, that's why I said it was only *implied* sex. Like in Utena, where

Still, Parasyte itself didn't show much besides some blurred shots. Which is fine, I guess, given the context. It's not even that anime shies away from showing sex - it's that it usually shies away from even *acknowledging that sex is a thing at all*. It's always jokes and hints and wink-wink-nudge-nudge but there's precious few occasions where actual sex happens and it's treated as the fairly normal occurrence that it is.

Yes, not even in seinen anime. I tell you, there's a serious problem with the Japanese and their sexuality. All teen shows in the west involve scenes where sex is implied.

inb4 socky comes out with some very interesting correlation between sex on TV and teenage pregnancy.

Suddenly this reminds me of Clannad, which most definitely did not skirt around sex being a thing at all, but apparently had a horrible phobia of showing physical affection. Like, seriously, by the end of the series our main couple are married and have a daughter but they never even share as much as a kiss on-screen... despite the show outright stating that they were sexing (shut up it's totally a valid word) off-screen.
This sure is a signature.

I guess it'd be hard to ignore that sex exists when dealing with a girl being pregnant  :face-rolleyes...
