I should ask a question and see if it gets answered by Tom!

@DBZ_universe:

You should! I can't think of a good question lately. I'll post my comments on the video after getting some Toriko work done.

I have never seen Evangelion before except for that movie that aired on Toonami back in 2013, so I can't comment on it. YouSigel's comment (sorry, if I butcher your name) on RWBY's place in anime and that anime's definition is evolving like a language. I did appreciate 's arguments on RWBY that anime is a style not based on its origins.

That certainly explains why Space Dandy is very appealing to westerners. When I was working on the winter guide, I look for series that had a lot of hype along with ones I watch for fun. Space Dandy was one of them. Space Dandy's fan service is over the top, but I feel it's forced. While in Kill la Kill, I do agree they say do hypersexualization and say that women shouldn't be ashamed and be empowered about their bodies. (Maybe, I got the point wrong). There is a line they crossed, and I feel both shows are just exploiting fan service. I do come off as a hypocrite. You can call me that. I don't mind fan service as long as it is done tastefully or isn't forced like Yu Sibu. Binbogami-ga to me did fan service well.

Psycho-Pass was a great show by Urobuchi. I enjoyed it how it asks us what is justice and the fear of letting machines judge our assessments, abilities, and etc. I voted it as one of my top 5 anime of 2013.
