it’s not even that snk tries to be something that it isnt and misfires in its attempt to deal with triggering material, the point is that it doesn’t address it at all. and all the triggering or complex things like abuse, mental illness, trauma, now sexual assault or getting handicapped that should be handled with care or at least show us how characters deal with it are by extension becoming dramatic plot devices to keep the audience excited. and what is even worse, snk is a manga which has a reception wide enough for there to be masses of people who are going to treat those complex things as nothing but a joke. its written in such a hasty way that it feels like it becomes one big clusterfuck. i think that snk avoided it for a long time, but last chapters are really fucking unsettling.
