Question of the Week was a quick'n'simple one: which do you prefer, Soul Eater or D.Gray-Man? Both series are style-heavy shounen action shows, one skewing slightly more comedy and the other slightly more drama.
The consensus was definitely in Soul Eater's favor amongst everyone who'd actually seen the shows (or at least one of them), and I'm inclined to agree that Soul Eater is a more solid, sleek package. There are definitely times when I'm more in the mood for D.Gray-Man though. Hmm!
Favorite points include:
"My favorite character is Black Star--YA-HOO! He's all brawn and no brain, but something about the way he just rushes into things and always wants to be #1 makes me love him."
"I really liked the scenes where the spirit of Medusa haunted Stein. All their scenes together were awesome. Even before she was exposed as a witch. In a way. she reminded me of Mystique in X-Men. Beautiful, intelligent, treacherous, and a secret agenda. Now that I think about it. Both also have questionable mothering skills."
"I haven't seen/read either of these series yet. Can I pick Pokemon instead?"
Since last week's question was a pretty quick one, I decided to make this one a bit more topical-- and more serious. Do you think that lolicon and shotacon (e.g. hand-drawn materials featuring underage-- sometimes VERY underage --characters in sexual situations) should be banned? It's something we've discussed here and there as news came out, but I also wanted to open up the topic for those who didn't feel like they could air their opinion in the comments of a news post.
