Do you like Anime-themed packaging on toys?

There are a lot of Anime-themed toys available. Regardless of what you think of the actual toy, does the packaging influence your desire to want/use the toy?

I voted no. I don't hate anime, but there's something very disturbing about getting off to anything involving cartoons. Makes me feel like a pedophile.

I said yes because I could care less about what my packaging of my product has on it. I usually recycle packaging anyway. Unless it's a luxury vibrator, then I might not be too into it. I want my luxury vibrators to have sleek, classy packaging.

I don't care for anime on the packaging my toys came in or on my toys. But, (sorry B8trDude ) not because I think it's "ugly" but because I think it's cute. Too cute for sex toys. Yeah, I know anime has a LOT of sexual undertones, but the characters are so child like that it squicks me out to see them on sex toys or sex toy packages.

To start off, I have NOTHING against anime. But you only had two options, so I chose the second. I don't like anime cartoon characters because they simply aren't my style. There's a possibility that I might buy the toy, but I'd probably be so turned off by the packaging that I would pass it up and buy something else.

As P'Gell said, many erotic anime cartoons are of children, whether anyone will admit it or not. When I was 18 I saw an anime porn video sent to me by a friend in which a 4th grade teacher was seducing his student. That's disgusting. I just can't take anime seriously.

But hey, if you like it, you like it. Nothing wrong with that, it's just your style.

I don't like anime packaging, but it doesn't influence my decision to use a toy. I also don't think anime is ugly it just doesn't do a thing for me.

Agreed. Pedophilia is very consistent in anime porn. I feel like a bad man to buy something in that field, and I don't think I could be aroused with that kind of feeling.

If it is made in Japan then yes, it is fine. I know that over there it is the norm. For a toy made anywhere else, no, it just does not work and looks a bit cheesy to me.

I prefer not to have a body of any kind on the packaging, it looks to old school to me.

It makes me feel gross too... Almost as if I am promoting it or something! I can't remember what dildo it was, I'll have to look later and post a link, but there was basically a very young looking female getting penetrated by a male on the cover. I don't know if it was from EF or not because it wasn't something I bought myself. A friend of mine sent it to me via e-mail to ask if it looked good or not. I said no simply because of the cover.

I don't see what's so "gross" about it. It's just artwork, it's not as if they're saying, "Think about this or that while using this!"

+1 on this.

I absolutely love anime and I feel erotic and lustful over it, not so much horny.

@ Everyone saying it is pedophilic- I don't know what you are watching, but hentai is just like american porn- it consists of adults or barely legal. Just because they look all innocent doesn't mean they are 12, and the innocent look is usually a big hit in the porn world as far as I know.

I don't really watch that much hentai, although I would. I love anime period and I think there is nothing wrong with it. In fact, the first male masturbation toy I bought had an anime girl on it.

Thanks Cherryredhead88. I'm glad to know someone else has noticed that it's not about being a pedophile!

I've watched a lot of anime and cartoon porn in my time and I do mean A LOT and am yet to see any that depicts actual children characters. Yes, they do tend to make the characters younger looking but it's just like the barely legal stuff.
And to say that all anime is pedophilic is just like saying that all porn is pedophilic because some sickos have gone and made child porn. Nothing is a s black and white as that.

Again YAY for Anime and all the sexy toons out there!

I voted yes only because I don't think I would not buy a toy solely based on an anime photo. It depends though. I'd rather see anime than the popular obscene BS that's usually trashing up the packaging. I usually will not buy something if it's got those trashy photos. Now, if the anime is dirty then I probably would say hell no. I don't like that & I find it vulgar and distasteful for toys/pacjaging to dislpay any kind of shit like that. I DONT NEED to see that & I prefer not to. I don't know why companies think that every female who uses sex toys MUST want them to be packaged in filthy photo covered trash. I don't like anime. Haven't ever watched it or whatever and would not be a fan since I was the kind of girl who grew up with cartoons like bugs bunny & hey arnold,etc. I think the anime is more popular among the younger generation these days. Teens are into that, but not me. Now, as long as it was kept clean & if it was a toy I really wanted I'd still buy it. Although I've never seen them with anime yet. ?

Anyways, the only thing that would influence my decision on buying anime toys is if the toy itself had anime or if the anime on the packaging was obscene, dirty, vulgar then I would NOT buy it.

I also answered yes, but I wouldn't buy "anything" that has anime characters on it.

I don't hate anime, but I wouldn't buy.

I'm afraid that I do think that Anime looks UGLY, stupidly cute and, if anything, think it greatly distracts from the appeal of sex toys or, for that matter, everything else.

I love anime, and hentai, but I still don't really want it on my sex toys... On a similar note, the Hello Kitty vibrator really freaks me out.

I love animation from all around the world, anime included, and I've watched a number hentai cartoons as well. Not sure where everyone's seeing so much pedophilia-themed anime - I mean, yeah, it certainly exists, but it's not the majority.

But when you get right down to it, I don't really think the presence or lack of anime would effect my decision either way. I prefer to look at the toy itself rather than the packaging, since that's where I'm actually going to be getting my fun from. Besides, I rarely hang on to the packaging anyway, unless it's really high-quality.

i voted no, however there should've been a more neutral option to be more fair. i dont really care for them but recently reviewed a piece that featured one. they don't really work for me visually but i won't turn down a cool toy just because there's a jagged-edged cartoon babe on the cover of the package.

I would be no more or less likely to buy a toy with an anime character on it that I would one with a real porn star on it.

Hsha i feel the same way--keep the packaging on more of an adult level.

I voted no, but really don't care. The packaging is a mute point after you have opened the product and disposed of it anyways. Plus, I wouldn't stare at the packaging if I did keep it.

Sure, why not? I love anime. I wouldn't buy just anything because of the packaging but it wouldn't discourage me from a purchase.

I mostly base my purchases on reviews and the price of a product. Though, the attractive hentai character on the packaging does pull me in.

I voted yes because it's closer than no, though reality is more of a maybe. I often find it has nothing to do with the toy, but good art will definitely catch my eye.
