Why is the school setting liked so much in anime? It cannot just be that the target audience is mostly children, because there are a lot of anime of this sort oriented to older otaku also. Do anime ever make more than passing attempts at portraying so called "adulthood" as a future to be excited about?

Even fucking shonen manga get censored too much. One Piece cuts out the entire first chapter just because it would be too gritty. Hitman Reborn cuts out alcohol and a smoking hs student despite both of these things being very plot-relevant. The real answer lies somewhere in that it's easier to get something past censors if it's just a boring highschool drama about feefees.

School provides an easy contained setting that is relatable to pretty much all readers: children are living through it, and adults can remember their days going through it. It follows a strict framework that makes it easier to write, given the expected conventions of tests, clubs, school trips, etc., and is thus very convenient for many genres (romantic comedies being a prime example, but not only).

As anons above have pointed out, the Japanese in particular have a weird idealized version of school in their culture whereas it takes this sort of landmark place as "the last time you could be free" since labor in Japan is so nightmarish that once you enter the working force your life becomes hell. This, of course, isn't entirely correct; school life is often quite terrible, with ungodly pressures from absurd and constant testing, tons of drama, bullying, and misery all around.

As I see it, school is chosen as a setting so constantly not for its concrete characteristics, which very few works actually have the guts to delve into ("delinquent" manga often being a prime example), but to follow an easy framework that feels like a comforting narrative device, guaranteeing the reader that nothing really unexpected is bound to happen, and they can read with certainty that their beliefs probably won't be questioned. It's form convenient for a work aimed at mass cultural output. This, of course, becomes absurd in those manga that have schools with like ten thousand students that are functionally a self-governing society, at which point the plot device unwittingly becomes a parody of itself.

The easiest way to demonstrate the way school is merely a convenient plot device is by the problem of parenting and reproduction (in the marxist sense): how many manga set in school have to come up with contrived plot devices (working overseas, not giving a shit about their children, just plain never appearing) in order to remove parents from the narrative, and thus not have to grapple with the actual reality that being school-aged entails: that the "freedom" of schoolkids is in real life anything but, given they must answer to several different authorities they have no meaningful way to recourse against.

I find that for better understanding of these kinds of plot devices reading "How to read Donald Duck", a marxist classic by some folks in the AllendPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Judge me all you like, but I love a good power/skill progression. What are some anime or manga that have a really nice progression? I've always been fond of Berserk's build up of Guts as the ultimate warrior, to the point where you really believe a human can defeat a demon.

I don't care about sticking to canon unless its really important to the characterization of a story. Netflix Bebop is just poorly done as a stand-alone, it being an adaptation only makes it worse. The Resident Evil movies aren't great and are very divorced in areas from the game, but as standalone films still have decent story-telling and plot and the 'bad' parts are part of the cheesy charm, this is just boring.

I wound up watching it from all the seething over it and it actually was really cute. Nagatoro was terrible horrible in the first episode how she acted and I really wish they would better explain why she went so far at first. But later just got into sexual teasing and her being protective and considerate and the dork actually has character development which is more than what you usually see in these type of shows.

Any petite girl can pull a cuter voice. They don't necessarily have to be Japanese. For example I've heard Russians that can do voices pretty similar to how Japanese VAs sound.

You're both taking extreme points of view. Dubs are generally considered worse because of the legacy of old dubbing being lack-luster narration type shit or inanely lazy mouth-voice sync. Today Dubs are usually much higher quality than they used to be, even for mediocre, single-season isekai-of-the-month shit. Japanese VAs are good, but ironically the quality control has dropped, leading to really poor and annoying performances.
