Abstract

A woman’s body is the most attractive side of a woman, so the beauty of this body is an attraction for many businesses, especially in the film industry. It feels lacking if a program such as an animated film does not sow a female figure with all her charms. In fact, the role of woman in the mass media is described only as sex objects. In the anime film Kuzu no Honkai displays sexual imagination from several scenes from each episode with appearance of a female body that looks open which shows female body parts that can stimulate men’s desires. Therefore, this study aims to determine the exploitation of the female body in the anime film Kuzu no Honkai using John Fiske’s semiotic analysis approach with television coding theory which consists of three levels, namely the level of reality, the level of representation, and the level of ideology. Based on the results of the study, it shows the exploitation of women’s bodies at the level of reality through codes of appearance, environment, and behavior. At the representation level, the exploitation of women’s bodies is shows through character codes, expressions, and dialogues. At the ideological level, the exploitation of women’s body is represented by the ideology of sinisme, narsisme in which the female body becomes a sexually imaginative object capable of stimulating, seductive, enjoyable, passionate and lustful for the men who watch.
