General Discussion » Why my sister thinks Harems would almost NEVER work

@Destinyheroknight said:

@AURON570:

It just occurred to me that OP's sister said that harems would not work in real life because even if a bunch of girls liked a guy, the guy would either be gay or turn gay. But wouldn't this still be considered a harem even if the guy is gay? or even bisexual or a hermaphrodite? Or does the guy HAVE to be straight and/or fertile?

What about reverse Harems?

That's the point. If we allow reverse harems and all other types of harems, as long as there is a main person being liked by a bunch of other people, then the OP's sister should also agree that if a bunch of girls like a single gay guy, then it is considered a harem. Since she believes this actually does happen in real life, then harems can exist in real life.

Harems does exist in real life, Kings in the old days have them (but not in the same way as anime show them)

Thats what I was thiinking a real-life Harem can happen if you got alot of cash.

Hmm I suppose. I guess we're left to question what qualifies as a harem and whether it is practical. I don't really think it's practical these days for either the girls or the guy, to many factors to consider. But I guess it's possible, even if it's just role playing or whatever. But then it still will never be like the ideal harems in anime obviously.

Harems exist in anime. Anime is fiction. Fiction is not real life. Therefore harems do not exist in real life. I feel like the argument should have ended there. 
 
But as already pointed out, your sister seems to think guys can "turn gay" by hanging out with lots of girls. It doesn't work that way.

5 Centimeters Per Second » Watch 5 Cm Per Second for free this weekend!

5 Cm Per Second is a roughly 1 hour anime movie by Mr. Makoto Shinkai. For this weekend (Friday July 27th to Sunday July 31th), you will be able to watch the entirety of the movie online at crunchyroll.com! Details are listed here!
 
Apparently it is also only for US Audience members, so I cannot confirm that it works since I live in Canada. But I do have a DVD copy of the movie, and I can only say great things about it! 
 
The movie is about two childhood friends who slowly drift apart. 5 Cm Per Second is apparently the speed at which cherry blossoms fall from trees. Movement is a primary theme in the movie. Artwork is amazing! See for yourself from this trailer:

Bug Reporting » adding images to episode, leave page error

Okay something weird happened. I was able to circumvent this bug: After I had attached the images, I closed the "Thanks, awesome you're changes went live" window. The page still had the gray overlay, as if the "Thanks" window was still open. Then I refreshed the page using my browser, and the pictures appeared, on this page.

Nami » scariest picture of Nami?

Some of you may know, I'm making my way through One Piece, currently on episode 33. Luffy and the others are getting to know Arlong and his crew. There's also a lot of set up to learn more about Nami. I think this has to be the scariest picure of Nami. This is when Zoro finds out Nami is part of Arlong's crew, and Arlong says something like "Hahahaha, Nami won't even flinch when her mom dies." And this is the face she makes. 

 
P.S. somewhat related... I somehow accidentally posted this on giantbomb forums last night, thinking it was actually animevice. Luckily I didn't get too much hate, but I still feel really really bad.

Bug Reporting » adding images to episode, leave page error

I try adding my images to an episode gallery and it prompts me to refresh the page, but then another window pops up and asks if I want to leave the page, I say yes, and the page refreshes and my images aren't added to the episode.

I am using Firefox 5. Windows 7. Here is the page that it is occurring on, which is the episode page. What makes it more hilarious is that it also happened on this page, but somehow it was lagging or something, or I hit Refresh Page faster than Leave Page and it added the pictures.
 
Also, somehow I can see the pictures from the series page, and here. But not on the actual episode page.

Editing & Tools » Should the Spoiler Tags in wiki pages be removed?

Really? Yeah I can understand it not being on the majority of wiki pages. But I think spoiler tags have a purpose in episode summaries. I've been writing my episode summaries to give a set-up of the major plot of the episode, then put the result of the plot and other action in spoilers.
 
In my opinion, this is similar to episode reviews, or even series reviews. You give just enough info for people who haven't checked out the episode/series yet, some idea of what to expect from the episode and whether to check it out (this would be the material not in spoilers). And on the flip side you give people who have already watched it a chance to clarify stuff they might have missed or didn't understand (this would be both material in and out of spoilers).

anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day » Forget-me-nots

Cool find, that is very interesting. And I'm willing to bet that it was intentional, seeing as how the plot revolves around how to properly send off Menma. Love this series so much.

Eden of The East » NEETs in Eden of The East?

@AgentJ: thanks for the reply! So let me see if I understand this now: the reason the NEETs think that the missiles was a good thing is because it is a sort of wake-up call for the government/people in power. Then the person that deflects the missiles or saves the people being targeted by the missiles ends up the hero, even though being hit by missiles might improve society more than not having the missiles. Sorry I haven't seen the watchmen.

Just Anime » Anime you couldn't keep watching/walked away from

@EquitasInvictus said:
" @AURON570:  Woah woah woah you dropped To Aru Kagaku no Railgun? I guess if you watched it on its own (without watching what it's a spin-off of , To Aru Majutsu no Index) it'd be really difficult to get into at first, but there are some really awesome arcs later on in the series. I'd also understand if Kuroko turned you off from the series, since her obsession over Misaka is something that takes a lot to get used to. 'xD   "
yeah, that's pretty much what happened...  I forget how I heard about Railgun, but I thought I'd give it a try, not knowing it had a parent story. I couldn't really get into it, I guess it's just not for me. I'm thinking about giving it another shot by starting over from Index, sometime in the... vaguely distant future. =S

Battles » The Cast of MvC3 "Canonical" Tier List: who would REALLY win?

Bombzai.com has recently posted an article giving a "Canonically Accurate" Tier List. Namely, what would the tier list look like if the characters were made to reflect their storyline and background. Although this is not technically a "Battle", in the sense that one character going up against the next, but the first thing that popped in to my head as I read the article was, "those crazy people that spend their time in the Battle forums over at Anime Vice might get a kick out of this." Admittedly I've only skimmed the article, this stuff does not interest me that much, but I thought it might be interesting to you guys. Short of going into each and every character match-up and reasons for who would win each match-up, the writer opts for the old S, A, B, C, D tier rankings, and gives brief reasons for his placement of each character.
