Even before this, various forms of youth-specific culture have repeatedly risen, but this is related to the part that is not powerful enough to overturn the mainstream, and the values ​​of adults who are the bearers of the main culture It is believed that it was moving society.

In the background of the times when this youth culture was clearly established,communication,TransportationThe net is very well developed.Until then, it was very difficult economically for adolescents of this age group to travel to remote areas, and it was also possible to know how adolescents in other areas lived. Because it was difficult, it occurred at the same time in a wide areatrendDid not progress.However, long-distance transportation such as road transportation network and Shinkansen was established, and magazines for young people and young people were targeted.tv set-radioAs the number of programs began to increase, it is thought that it became possible for young people in other regions to strongly influence each other and form their own culture by using them.

At the same time, in the past, these cultural media for the younger generation were not very profitable commercially because they were not economically rich, but after the same period, the younger generation gradually becameHobbies,Leisure timeThe time and money devoted to this will increase, and commercial activities aimed only at this group will also generate enormous profits.MarketIt is considered that the information transmission side can afford to strengthen the related industries.

Impact of declining birthrate

in JapanYoungerAs a result, the youth population is declining, and some are concerned about the decline in youth culture.

Sales of entertainment media such as music CDs and weekly shōnen manga magazines1990 eraIt has been decreasing since the second half.For example1990 era"Weekly Shonen Magazine Sales No. 1"Weekly Shonen Jump』, The circulation was 1990 million in the 650s,2006It fell to 290 million copies, less than half.Television AnimationAlso,1970 eraIsSpace Battleship Yamato],1980 eraIsド ラ ゴ ン ボ ー ル],1990 eraIsSailor Moon』The audience rating was over 30%, but2000 eraWhen you enter, the TV animationIndependent UHF stationIt was moved to such a frame, and the audience rating also dropped.

There is also a remarkable tendency in Japan to shift from what was previously thought to be a medium for children and boys (including girls) to work targeting a wider age group.Even in media such as manga and anime, which have traditionally played a part in youth culture, they are now taking a wider range of target generations.For this reason, it is thought that no significant changes will be seen while the populous generation born between 1965 and 1979 maintains its presence as a consumer of manga and anime.
