Motorcycle on the Coast Road seems to be poorly expanded from "anime only" to "anime, with some other works, maybe".

How's it look now?

Also, is there any reason it needs to be specific to the credits? I don't think so, but I left that part in.

I don't think so, I believe it was just somebody writing around examples again.

Took a chainsaw to No Export for You, most of it is over on the analysis page.

Much much better.

Anyway right now Buxom Is Better use a clearer and more concise trope descriptions. In anyone has any suggestions, please post them on the TRS thread

I still think it needs more compacting.

Dunno, just seems rather short. I'm currently going through Anime Tropes and looking for problems as I'm prepping to finish up Stock Japanese Characters and want something ready to go.

Also:Sitting on the Roof: written Japanese specific with a quote from something older than animation.

Better short and clear than long and bloated. I'm fine with it.

Hollywood Hype Machine needs a trim, everything after the second paragraph seems like extra info suit for an analysis page.

Both Just Following Orders and I Did What I Had to Do seem to have a length issue caused by some Analysis on the main page. The former even has examples in the description.

Alright, I took a chainsaw to Hollywood Hype Machine, Just Following Orders, and I Did What I Had to Do.

Not an egregious one but Male Gaze seems a little long for a really simple concept.

Oct 1st 2011 at 8:49:54 PM

...did you post that somewhere else? I swear I saw that exact line about Male Gaze elsewhere.

Anyway, most of it can be moved to analysis without issue. How's this for a new description?

The Male Gaze is a term from Gaze theory that describes the tendency of works to assume a male viewpoint even if it does not have a specific narrative Point of View, and in particular the tendency of works to present female (or male, depending on the director's tendencies) characters as subjects of implicitly male visual appreciation.

One of the most obvious results of Male Gaze is the way a (usually male) director/cameraman's interest in women informs his shots, leading to a focus on breasts, asses and other jiggly bits even when the film isn't necessarily supposed to be a T&A-fest. For example, a sex scene between a man and a woman may show more of her body than it does of his, or focus more on her reactions than his (see Right Through His Pants). Alternatively, it could appear in shows that aren't overtly sexual - for example, scenes of bikini-clad female characters talking that emphasize their bodies rather than showing just their heads.

The term also applies in other mediums, such as video games and comic books. During the Dark Age, comic books were often perfect examples of the male gaze, with scenes being framed to show off a female character's "assets" over everything else. The trend continues at a lower level today.

If the female in question is aware of the Fourth Wall, she'll likely snap "Ahem, eyes are up here!" at the camera/artist.

The new one seems fine.

Made the changes for Male Gaze.

Any suggestions for Anti-Hero?

Asskicking Equals Authority's description doesn't look right to me for some reason. Too many short paragraphs, I think. Thoughts?

[up] That description gives me a headache. It's a simple concept that does not warrant a description that long,and that meandering. I just wanna scrap the thing and do a rewrite.
