YMMV: Hellboy Animated

  • Values Dissonance - Many Western viewers don't understand why the Samurai's actions in Sword of Storms shamed his Daimyo. A brave hero who rescues a fair maiden from evil demons and spares his liege lord the horrible choice between sacrifice and destruction is the foundation of European Legends and Fairy Tales and usually earns a reward of the maid's hand in marriage or a lordship of his own, not being turned into a statue and his love murdered by her father.
