Is an ethical defect of a work of art relevant to its aesthetic evaluation?
We haven’t really done a topical, non-anime-specific show before. Let us know if you like it and want to see more.
Subs & Shadon (and their squeaky office chairs) use the oft-discussed anime trope of fan service to explore some more general questions re: aesthetics, media and art. We were inspired to have this discussion after watching an excellent video by Ollie Thorn aka Philosophy Tube on this very topic: www.youtube.com/watch?v=w45kh2PB8a0.
Ollie defines the concept of an ethical defect and explores some possible answers to the question posed above. We also echo the definition and proceed to have a far less concise discussion about all the topics mentioned earlier.
