Batman is Anime, and Zelda's an RPG. These are a few of the most dumbest (sic) things.

General Discussion » Do you agree with IGN'S top anime characters list?

I vaguely remember this list, only because I remember thinking that it was total garbage. The author (or, god forbid, AUTHORS) doesn't seem to have a broad knowledge of the medium.

General Discussion » Why are Shounens so long?

The industry is becoming weaker by the day. Companies like Shonen Jump need those big series to keep them afloat, because there's no guarantee that someone has the next "Once Piece" waiting in the wings.

@MrASSH0LE: I don't really understand your fascination with the illogical extreme, nor with this idea of "winning" and "losing". I told you in both of those previous topics, if you are concerned with who "wins" this, then you're doing it wrong. If that's what fuels your nitpicking and irrelevant arguments, than this really is pointless.   
 
"Amusing" that I brought it up now? Only if you assume the world revolves around you. I have a nose for hypocracy (normally trained on politics) and your statement set it off. To think otherwise is to give both of us too much credit. 

Here's the bit about Sasuke v Angel Beats: 
@AgentJ said:

 that being that a twist (him leaving the village) is not a good idea just because it's unique, and that a more "cliche" approach would have likely served the series better.

I don't suppose you remember us talking about whether Sasuke should have or shouldn't have left the village, where I said that "while it would have been cliche, it would have still been better", bringing up M Night Shaymalan to point out that twists aren't indicative of good writing. That was then pretty much exactly what you said in your "hopping around in bunny suits" quote.  
 
Since you understand my thinking, I don't really think I need to say anything else. I conceded the final word to you, and to take anything else from it would, well, be just like you.

Here's the thread:

Actually that is the thread I was referring to if you scroll down you can even see the comment you used concerning your concession.

Have you ever participated in a debate? Have you ever watched one on television? Inevitably someone is going to have the last word, or the debate would go on forever.
Yes,yes,yes, however what happened was that we were debating and you decided to instead countering my point say that you were giving me the last word basically giving up. A debate needs two parties.One to defend the affirmation ,one to oppose the affirmation if one side doesn't fulfill it's objective it loses especially when your telling the other party so blatantly "that you are letting them have the last" basically giving up on fulfilling the said objective.
I suppose that was the thread :P 
 
It's funny you should call that a concession, because in response to that very thread, you wrote "agree to disagree" on my wall. http://www.animevice.com/profile/agentj/ By your logic, would that not also be a concession? Like debating with a tea partier, I felt like to continue was pointless. Doesn't mean that the United States would be better off if there were no government at all. I made my points, and had nothing further to add. And judging by the responses in that topic, the majority seemed to agree.

Ye i replied to your post in this thread I actually remember you being the person saying you weren't to argue and saying that you were using a cope-out.
Plus how is that not a concession to say your letting me have the last word.It's basically giving up.
@AgentJ said:
AGAIN though, you were referring to the wrong topic. Do you understand which one I was talking about now?
Show it to me I only remeber us arguing about Sasuke one time.
Have you ever participated in a debate? Have you ever watched one on television? Inevitably someone is going to have the last word, or the debate would go on forever. We unfortunately lack a moderator to tell us when to end. Besides, both of us know you wouldn't be willing to stop regardless of whether or not you were right.

@MrASSH0LE: Wrong discussion, and revisionist history (I admitted that I didn't watch the anime, but continued on about the plot points that you contested. Looking back, it appears that mine is the latest reply in that thread. "concession" my ass). I'm talking about the much more recent discussion about whether or not Sasuke is a good character.  
 
And are you really telling me that the difference between Angel Beats and Code Geass is that you "felt like they were going to be answered at a certain point?" Destinyheroknight, tell me if that sounds ridiculous to you or not, because it does to me. I can promise you that Angel Beats fills in all your questions as well as or better than any of the titles you named.

@MrASSH0LE:

be answered at a certain point when watching AB I thought the anime like most other anime with teenage protagonists would not explain why it's protagonist are teenagers

The show give you clues Iwasawa, Naoi, Hinata and Yuri. They all have something in common

And not just those four. Everyone at the school has one connecting bond.

Nope,the whole baseball game was Yuripee's idea for some random reason it was still silly.

The sad part is that nearly every question of his is answered by the end of the run
Well that is kind of beside the point know isn't it.If I told you there was this movie and during over 70% of this movie people where jumping around in bunny suits yelling and then somebody complained saying "Why in the hell is this happening?" and you replied that it is explained later it would still be a silly movie especially in anime where all the characters being teenage High Schoolers is not something that is explained or even acknowledged most of the time.
Really buddy, just watch the rest of the series. You're already half-way there.  
 
As for your example; you actually proved my point in our previous discussion about Sasuke, that being that a twist (him leaving the village) is not a good idea just because it's unique, and that a more "cliche" approach would have likely served the series better. Regardless, if your movie about people jumping around in bunny suits had a "GOOD" explanation, than I would have no problem accepting that and continuing. It is exceedingly rare that I don't finish a tv show or movie that I start. Even "This Ugly Yet Beautiful World", which I regard as the worst anime I have yet seen, I finished. And besides all that, your example is very hyperbolic and extreme, because none of that insanity or repetition exists in Angel Beats. While your example movie would likely not have great review scores, Angel Beats has widely been considered one of the best anime of 2010. So just give it a shot. I promise you there are good reasons for everything you are asking about (all of which are things you are SUPPOSED to be asking yourself at this point in the series). If they just came out with all the answers in the first episode, the rest of the series would be no fun. I'm confused as to why you only understand this idea with shows that you already like.

I'm about 10 chapters in, and it seems enjoyable. Also, comparing it to Bleach or Naruto is like comparing Apocolypse Now to Citizen Kane, in that it's completely pointless.

@hitsusatsu11:  Truer words have never been spoken.  A great and wise hipster once told me a proverb that has stayed with me my entire life.  I will share it with you:

He who enjoys what others like is a fool.  He who enjoys what others haven't heard of or hate is wise beyond his years.  Understand this and the world shall be in your palm.

The risky thing about this quote is that it assumes people enjoys what others like BECAUSE others like it, and that those who enjoy what others haven't or hate do so out of true love. But that ignores those who genuinely like a good product the same as everyone else, as well as those who only like certain things BECAUSE no one else likes them (AKA hipsters). Hipsters are as low as it goes as far as I'm concerned. Only liking something unpopular because it's unpopular is disgusting. There are great things that aren't popular (such as my shining treasure BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad), but they'd still be great even if they WERE popular.

Just Manga » Ichigo Back to square 1 ( spoiler)

Quite happy about the return (and revelation) of Rukia, 13th squad Lieutenant. Shouldn't be too long before we see what has become of Soul Society in Ichigo's absence.  
 
His look when he thought his father had stabbed him was great, even if it didn't make much sense (his father wouldn't stab him for no reason, even if he thought Tsukishima was a "friend", not to mention that Ginjo had already said he was going to spare Ichigo). I suppose with the state of mind Ichigo was in, he wasn't thinking about such things.
