To make what OP said not absolutely retarded:
Why must the vast majority of fantasy series be set in Middle Ages Europe under a different name? There were ages before the Middle one, which had plenty of interesting things going on. Why are there so few fantasy works based around ancient civilisations such as Egypt, for example? There are plenty of non-European areas with rich histories and mythologies, like India, South America, Arabia, etc, so why are there so few fantasy worlds based upon them?

Noah Jenkins
Noah Jenkins

No.

And to be precise, there's not a whole lot of fantasy - let alone anime - based on the European middle ages. Typically fantasy authors go for the much more prolific Renaissance period. With good reason.

Also if I'm not mistaken there's at least 3 very popular anime/manga fantasy series based on the Islamic and pre Islamic Middle East airing right this fucking moment or in the last 6 or so months.

To be fair that happens with just any kind of media that approaches fantasy not only manga and anime.

In literature happens exactly the same, of course there is stuff if you look enough, but the usual is the LOTR style. In anime happens the same you have lot of medieval stuff but all that you say exists too like 12 kingdoms or Magi or Basara or Aion or Rokka or...that manga about Budha that mixes mythology and warfare that even got an anime adaptation.

About the "WHY", well, its simple, the same reason remakes and sequels from older things are constantly make: CONNECTION, if you give the people something they already know you fastly create a connection that makes more easy to sell them the product.

Mangaka don't seem to understand subtlety when it comes to certain genres like fantasy. Usually they find the most popular example in the West, i.e. Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, etc. and take them to extremes.

So looking at Berserk, it takes the pessimistic world of GOT and turns it into constant edge fights with demons haunting one specifiic guy.

Other times when it comes to fantasy, Mangaka go for the good old generic European fantasy story found in any JRPG or asian MMO. These stories have colourful worlds with races that all look super cute.

Magi and NGNL are guilty of this. Bright colours mixed with worlds that aren't very creative at all, races that are even less creative and history which is straight rip-offs.

Basically Mangaka are hacks and cannot respect the nature of fantasy storytelling, only becoming the 90% of shit that already exist in western fantasy series.

using fantasy (general meaning) and fantasy (gerne) interchangeably
retard detected
The fantasy genre is of the medievalist form.
Medievalism is the system of belief and practice characteristic of the Middle Ages, or devotion to elements of that period, which has been expressed in areas such as architecture, literature, music, art, philosophy, scholarship, and various vehicles of popular culture.
In the history of Europe, the Middle Ages or medieval period lasted from the 5th to the 15th century. The Middle Ages is the middle period of the three traditional divisions of Western history.
western = european
Of course not every fantasy novel is set in europe but in 99,99999% of the times fantasy is synonymous with european middle ages and has widely been accepted as such.
Goats have 1 head but if a goat has polycephaly its still a goat even though it has 2 heads. Still nobody would think of a goat with polycephaly when someone mentions or talks about a goat.

Austin Brown
Austin Brown

You talk as if western fantasy made in the west was better. If I replace "Bright colours" with "dark colors" I'm describing most of the western fantasy media.

Dark colors mixed with worlds that aren't very creative at all, races that are even less creative and history which is straight rip-offs.

Everything's boring until you make it interesting, they insert dragons in middle aged europe. They could insert demons in middle age America.

The real reason is because it's been so romanticized by this point it's hard to justify other historical fantasy places besides europe and Japan.

what went wrong?

Camden Smith

No.
The real reason is Europ was a place that could be romanticized easily.
Women were considered to be human beings - even if they were not completely equal.
People had rights. And obligations.
They upheld their beliefs but not with complete fanaticism.
And you could always outgrow your birthrights.

It's likeable and easy to work with.

Now lets look at Mexicostan
human sacrifices every day
women are animals
cast system
they don't even have a word for war, they constantly fight

Yeah, you could make a setting that is interesting out of this but, it's not going to be easy and in the end it would look more like Europe than Aztecloatlallalalttltltltc.

When we saw so many cities and villages built in the water and other great towns on dry land we were amazed and said that it was like the enchantments (...) on account of the great towers and cues and buildings rising from the water, and all built of masonry. And some of our soldiers even asked whether the things that we saw were not a dream? (...) I do not know how to describe it, seeing things as we did that had never been heard of or seen before, not even dreamed about.

And yet a couple of ships filled with impoverished Spaniards, managed to conquer all of it. What a conundrum.

You also have to bare in mind Europeans in that period liked to tell tall tales. Some of the spaniards wrote about fountains that could give you eternal youth. Are those real as well?

Where are all of those cities?

We find cities thousands of years old buried in Europe and they are still identifiable as such. Where are all the great Aztec cities? Southern America is pretty arid. If anything those cities would have survived much better.

There are some interesting surviving monuments but there's nothing that impressive in Southern America, Europe was building pic related in the same period.

No maybe you need to read one. At it's peak Spain had a grand total of GASP 40 ships going to the Americas yearly. Those ships were about as big as you would expect of the period so we're talking about 1000ish colonists dropping off in the Americas.

Come the fuck on.

The Southern Americans had a civilization. But if a 1000 people half of which women per year are enough to topple it, then we're not exactly talking about an overachieving culture here.

More amusing when the spaniards first came to "India" they had a grand total of 6 ships. Can you even imagine the laughable scale of things we're talking about here. 300 people conquered a fucking continent with a great advanced culture already present. Yeah right.

Because fantasy is pretty firmly entrenched in tropes from Tolkeins literature, which was based off of north european mythology. Trying to find parallels in other cultures is tricky at best, and could possibly leave out more interesting parts of the culture which don't have a european equivalent. For example i cant think of any equivalent to paladins in subsarahan africa and it would be pretty hard for many people to defferentiate druids and clerics in a plains indian fantasy setting.

maybe i was a little hasty in noming off Tolkein without talking about Gygax, who sure as hell helped mold the fantasy genre as it is today, but the fact is that both of them drew heavily upon european folklore, and as such it has permeated to this day. im also not saying there are no other cultural influences found in fantasy other than europe; the fantasy monk is clearly based off of shaolin monks, but its influence is small in comparison to the amount of european influence in the traditional fantasy genre.

Going by the definition from the encyclopedia of fantasy:
The identifying traits of fantasy are the inclusion of fantastic elements in a self-coherent (internally consistent) setting, where inspiration from mythology and folklore remains a consistent theme.
and what sets it apart from a modern folk story?
This I do not know. The whole thing is intertwined, and even with the prevision of the components that make up fantasy provided, to say it ends there would be selling the genre short.

Persian and Egyptian and even Roman culture is Islamic culture because the Arabs had no real culture and thus began aping Roman/Greek churches to build their mosques and palaces during the Umad caliphate and the Persian temples and palaces during the abbasid caliphate

Then the arab urban elites got completely wiped out when the Mongols stormed through, killed the turkish overlords of the arabs and then slaughtered everyone in baghdad resulting in islamic civilization largely recentering itself around the turks in the anatolian peninsula. And then Mongols converted to Islam and began pushing Persian stuff again because they owned that part of the middle east.

In any case Islam had no culture, they stole everything from everyone else and now claim arabic numerals and "muh islamic golden age" for themselves while simultaneously denouncing the islamic golden age as an era of decadence and wanting to go back to the rashidun caliphate.

The Aztec backdrop was really cool. The series could have been so much better with a different studio; alas, it is doomed to be forgotten through sheer mediocrity.

I'd like to see some more Arabic-inspired settings like A Bride's Story. If nothing else I love music with arabian influences.

Persian and Egyptian and even Roman culture is Islamic culture
wat

Arabs had no real culture and thus began aping Roman/Greek churches to build their mosques and palaces during the Umad caliphate and the Persian temples and palaces during the abbasid caliphate
Well Persians are Muslim too and Islamic culture is a synthetic fusion between Iranian and Mesopotamian culture with some Roman/Greek added in.

they stole everything from everyone else and now claim arabic numerals
It's not theirs but they modified it.

muh islamic golden age" for themselves while simultaneously denouncing the islamic golden age as an era of decadence and wanting to go back to the rashidun caliphate.
Islamic Golden Age was the only good time for Islam and just about better than anything the Ottomans had.

You mean crypto Zoroastrians?

Wouldn't fly in Japan- would probably be too reminiscent of what happened to the Ainu, and that's not something that they like to even think about over there.

Well Persians are Muslim too and Islamic culture is a synthetic fusion between Iranian and Mesopotamian culture with some Roman/Greek added in.

The Abbasids began adopted Sassanid building styles before the majority of Iranians were muslim in the 800s AD

Islamic Golden Age was the only good time for Islam and just about better than anything the Ottomans had.

Nani? The Ottomans did stuff too, the fact that Turkish islam is so mild is because the Hanafi school of Islamic law dominated in the Ottoman empire- the Hanafi school was influenced by the European Enlightenment. So crimes which you would have been executed for in other Sunnite law schools had their punishments changed to 50 lashes in Hanafi law interpretations.

The Japanese are hopelessly innocent when it comes to this kind of stuff and while they have their own "MUH AINU MUH OKINAWANS MUH KOREANS" moral crusaders against racism n sheeit over there the bulk of the Japanese wouldn't realize the conquest of Hokkaido mirrors the American conquest of the Injuns.

And this is keeping in mind that the Ainu never got reservations- Americans gave injuns reservations to preserve their racial and cultural differences so they wouldn't die out while Japanese just banged the round-eyes out of those hot Ainu chicks.

Probably as close as you're going to get, most people don't know anything about what happened in the Americas, and a lot of it is made up. (See Book of Mormon or First North Americans series.)

But there's Chinese-style stuff fantasy if that's what you want.

They had similar monsters.
The incas had the amaru. A dragon like creature. Threw lightning instead of fire and dwelled in mountain rivers.
The appearance of amaru is a combination of the body of a serpent, wings of a bird, neck and the head of llama, in some versions is said to have deer antlers and crystalline eyes, they also have a red nose and some have scales on their body.
Some of them could become fucking huge, a leyend of central peru (the black amaru and white amaru) says that in the last moments of their lifes the white and black amarus grew insanely big making the black range and white range of central peru.
I don't remember who, but it is said that an inca emperor fought and killed the last one of them.

Also pic related is moon animal of the moche culture, also similar to dragons and feared by the moche people, here is a video here that explains best

The reason Fantasy Anime tend to base their mythos around European and Japanese legends and fiction, is probably just as simple as "that's what sells."

They have a boner for it, and people are familiar enough with it, that they can just throw in Elves and Dragons, and viewers know what they're looking at.

Magi is an exception that's rather popular, but how many references to arab culture do people really understand in Magi?
