Am I going crazy?

No, seriously. Real question.

I'm looking at some of the latest to-be-animated announcements and they look like complete JUNK. Not just 'oh, that doesn't look very good' but 'ugh, that makes me feel physically ill'. Sexist, racist... and more so than usual. These aren't adult OAV titles either, although they'll be airing late at night. They'll be widely broadcast too.

The following websites are safe for work, except... not. I don't know. It might just be me. Save them until you get home, if you want to see for yourself.

Here's the first one: Bounen no Xamudou. It seems that tentacle rape is passé now and we're using giant hands instead.
Actually, this one probably IS NSFW: Magical Academy. Ick. Ick. Ick.
I honestly wonder if I'm being oversensitive here: Kaiba (character designs). Billed as an anime whose simplistic designs belied its more serious message and with Paku Romi as one of the stars, I was initially quite interested. Except... well, look at the black/dark-skinned character. What were they thinking!?

Here, have a show about a kitty: Chi's Sweet Home. Stars Kiuchi Hidenobu, amongst others.
