    I've actually pointed that out a few times. I don't remember if it was this thread or not, but yeah. I watched a few episodes of it, and the parents (all but confirmed to be Clark and Diana, despite a few differences) play a minor role at best.

    Honestly, you could even ignore her parentage and simply chalk it up to her simply being a super-powered kid teen (happens enough in anime, even older ones like that).

    Lol, it's Project A-Ko, not Ako, please respect the hyphen. A-ko is too Genki to be their daughter, but I can give you that if Superman has a daughter and she is growing in Japan written by Hideaki Anno, she will have characters like her. By the way, if you like the anime I recommend Kill la Kill, it has the same premise but more modern.

    Oh, you watched Violet Evergarden! What do you think about that? I think that Violet Evergarden is the anime that Superman needs to follow if Superman made into anime.

    To be fair the notion that battle shonen is just for young boys are really old school. Nowadays, the fan of battle shonen is young girls!

    ... Well, for obvious reason though.

    honestly,other than clark kent and some kal el.Clark kent with the whole writing letters thing while traveling.Kal el with learning human emotions,the disablity of losing arms and broken yearning for something long gone.while,these two identities are important.I want more focus on superman.I don't see much superman.That is the titular identity.I am just tired of clark kent and kal el.

    While,i do submit that young girls might read shonen.But,i haven't seen much dramatic shifts.Girls read shoujo,largely.Ofcourse,there are guys like miura who says his manga "berserk is more shoujo than seinen(for adults largley).But,storytelling seems to be targeted at boys and men in case of berserk.

    As said,i am more fan of goldenage comics where superman identity was the focus rather than clark kent or kal el.Superbooks were about the daring adventures of the outlaw/vigilante champion of the oppressed.he's a swashbuckling debonair and his story was high adventures beyond belief kinda deal.While,i can see the correlation between violet and clark kent/kal el.Superman?He has got personality in spades.He essentially smiling through every pain and puching walls even if his hands get broken in the process for the little guy.

    Hahaha, I mean by following up is not mimicking. What I mean is that the tone of the Violet Evergarden is what Superman needs to follow. Violet Evergarden is a story about human feelings and I think it will be good if there is a story about Superman that told like that. Instead of focusing on the fight and his adventure aspect, we focus on his human aspect. His interaction with other humans aside from daily planet and Smallville casts. It does not have to necessary on his Clark Kent aspect maybe something like the idea of before Superman went to Metropolis, he travels around the world, learning the world, growing up, as a freelance photographer and reporter.

    I think that's the true character development of Superman and that is what I think Superman needs if it wants to be anime. A story that feels wondrous, but still down to Earth. Essentially it's like if Birthright first issue is expanded into 12 anime episodes with the feeling of Clark Kent and Superman from American Alien.

    While,i do submit that young girls might read shonen.But,i haven't seen much dramatic shifts.Girls read shoujo,largely.Ofcourse,there are guys like miura who says his manga "berserk is more shoujo than seinen(for adults largley).But,storytelling seems to be targeted at boys.
    Oh, it's about rather common tropes in Shojo where the girls (Casca and Schierke) love a bad boy (Guts) and having a triangle love with a handsome boy (Griffith). But, it also has some shojo escapism elements like how a helpless girl saved by bad boys that is ignoring her and little girl love older man tropes that we always see in shoujo. Serpico's fighting skills are also I believe inspired by Rose of Versailes. But to be fair here, Shojou stories are not really dominant for girls too, it has many nasty kinds of stuff that Seinen will never be live up to.

    I believe stuff like Kuroko no Basuke, Katekyo Hitman Reborn, Haikyuu, Kimetsu no Yaiba, Boku no Hero Academia, and High School DxD is shonen stuff that clearly aimed with girls in mind. All of those shonen have a cute boy as male mc that is very different from some stuff like Toriko, One Piece, and Jojo. No to mention the increase of bromance scene in shonen really lent itself to how it's a buffet for girls readers. I said that but it doesn't mean One Piece, Toriko, and Jojo don't have any girl's appeals. CLAMP already proves that most of Jojo fans are also female.

    Both have defined Superman since Siegel and Shuster, there is Superman without them.

    Berserk is pure seinen and incredibly more adult focused than Superman ever was. Superman's been family friendly for generations.

    Superman does this but he's not smiling, because only a madman would smile doing that.
