They're listed under the production committee

Crystal seasons 1-3




Kodansha
Toei Animation

Eternal Production Committee




Kodansha
Toei Animation
Toei Company (listed solely as Toei)
Bandai
King Records
Kinoshita Group
Asahi Shimbun Company

That last one is the main parent company of TV Asahi, the network that aired the 90s anime. I assume they're involved because of the SuperS song covers since the credits list TV Asahi Music under the songs.


Is DEEN a part of the Committee?

So Toei wasn't a part of the committee until Crystal aired which is a combination of all producers?

As Cheif Supervisor, do the majority of approvals have to go through Naoko?

And in times when people would have fainted at the sight of a woman's ankle they were hanging nude paintings up.
There's a relation between the former & latter phenomenon: the latter was allowed to be a legitimate outlet for releasing the psychological pressure built up by the former, hence restoring the emotional balance. :wink:

It's listed under "animation production," along w/ Toei Animation, the only other one.

One of the funniest stories from the Victorian Era was how supposedly they covered the legs on furniture (such as tables) to prevent them from being too sexy.
Of course, this was (probably) all a joke to poke fun at themselves.
I can only imagine how ridiculous our current standards will seem in the next century. They will probably laugh and say we must have been joking when they read archived tweets.

That's under the assumption that societies will continue to become more & more open in the future - one which we can't take for granted because, like fashions, socio-cultural trends can be reversed, especially when we take a much longer view on history than just the past several centuries or even a millennium. For example, female status/power has become higher & female clothing has become more revealing in certain historical periods of ancient China, but such trends were reversed in the past millennium or so.

Personally, I don't think they need to become much more open. When nothing is taboo, everything is taboo. Kind of like we see currently...it's simultaneously empowering for people to be sexy and lewd but also perverted and wrong if you acknowledge it.
I wouldn't want to go back to "The good old days" but I do think some basic morals and a little modesty are the sexiest things these days.

To me, just like fashions, there's really no rights or wrongs regarding socio-cultural trends, because what people think as "right" or "wrong" also changes along w/ those trends, i.e. the socio-cultural environment they're living in. :)

I guess that's why the Golden Rule is the only one that has really (or at least should) stood the test of time in most cultures.

Such "golden rules," if they really exist, only stand for relatively longer times in relatively more cultures, & their content can also change - it's just that they change (much) slower & are (much) more widely applicable. :)
