"Today's manga such as dragon ball is hardly edifying – and they are seen even by adults."
"Many popular manga such as dragon ball has, admittedly, a darkness not previously associated with the genre. Nevertheless, the largest the darkness is not in the increased violence, sex and evil, but in despair. The adults are either completely absent, or the root of all evil (as in Stranger Things, Riverdale and The End of The F***ing world). They divide families and set off våldsspiraler, they don't care about the planet or society, within their own children (as in The magicians, 13 reasons why, and Everything sucks)."
"the Trend is also evident in Sweden, where SVT is currently playing in ungdomsserien the Party. It follows a bunch of young people during a late summer evening who asks when love and sex mixed with intrigue and fights. The series with the Eagles, also under production, revolves around young people in a Swedish small town and, in particular, the local hockey team."
"One of the reasons for the companies' new major initiatives on the so-called ”young adult”genre is that it is equally popular with adults, if not even more, that of the young. "

"It is interesting to see how a movie like Witches, homework and deadly lessons when it came in 1988 shocked with the humorous and almost cool portrayal of bullying and weapons in schools. Today feels-envisioning of the series (in the original game, Heathers, HBO Nordic) not particularly funny. And that's lucky!"
"You can also see that the screenwriters want to approach dark topics, but to simplify. As such, development is of course interesting, albeit dark at the same time."
"The new, updated archie comics don't really have more in common with the model than the red hair. Betty and Veronica no longer compete for his favor (talk about an outdated phenomenon), but is instead best friends. Turn it, for in Riverdale are dark forces at work. "
"When Holly is starting at the university she gets a chance to hang with the school's toughest girl gang. It may sound like the setup in the 80's-era film anytime but this is the dark 2010-version where the rock.-generation is portrayed as equally aware as blasé. "
"the Gap (SVT Play, from 1997)"
"Expectations are not in line with reality is one of the saddest there is. Teenagers Ella and Josephine find themselves right in the gap between the child and the adult, and is eager to deal with real life."
