Does anybody ever actually learn something from Shonen?

    Particularly battle shonen, but other shonen as well. Things like moral lessons, trivia, a more effective way of doing things, anything? If you have what shonen was it and what did you learn?

    I probably learned something when I was kid, but they typically beat you over the head with the stuff. Which is a good thing that there is such a redundant way to beat in morals, if they stopped, then actual gaps might actually start to appear.

    Let your chakra flow through a piece of paper to learn what nen type you have.

    Bandaids and meat heal all wounds.

    And when you die, there's a fuedal Japan themed life of poverty awaiting you.



    Really though, shonen works for me as a motivational thing. They beat you over the head with 'work hard, support your friends, be nice' morals. But series like Naruto are a nice dose of empowering positivity for when I'm down and demotivated. Oh, and Hunter x Hunter taught me a bunch of random trivia about auctions and fictional board games and stuff.

    I don't think so. I grew up reading classical literature (that was technically written by adults for adults - thanks, school :catdefeat) and I've only started reading manga in my late teens so there wasn't much left for me to learn from literature aimed at teens I suppose. For me it's just entertainment value and occasional feels.

    Maybe. I think when I was younger and watched Naruto it had some positive influences on me. The show definitely aided in me becoming an extremely optimistic person during my high school years. I had English essay assignments where I had to write about a quote that had an impact on me, and I always chose quotes from Naruto. I wasn't a good writer back then, but my teacher liked me for how optimistic and thoughtful I was with it. I'm definitely not as optimistic as I used to be, but that's the effect it had.

    It depends on your current experience in life. If you are at the point where you are confused by certain questions and you stumble upon anime or manga that highlight them, you will definitely find something to think over and consider.

    Talking seriously, there are some things that remind that not only fighting for your dream is important, but also sometimes you should accept the reality and move with in in synchrony.
