General Discussion » What's your favourite hair colour on an anime girl?

So I was messing around with my lists earlier, and I noticed something about the anime girls I have listed. A good chunk of them have pink hair...
Now, ordinarily I do my best to avoid the colour pink at all costs. I'm pretty sure I own zero pink things, at least of any importance, and when an actual person has pink hair it looks fairly ridiculous and off-putting. 

 This image had absolutely nothing to do with my sudden pro-pink attitude. Nothing at all.
 This image had absolutely nothing to do with my sudden pro-pink attitude. Nothing at all.
But in anime it just... works. Though obviously, lots of wacky hair colours are more popular among the female anime population. So, for a bit of fun and to see if anyone else realizes they too have a love for pink-topped anime chicks, I thought I'd throw a poll together to find out what hair colours are popular with you crazy Anime Vice people. I think I've covered the major shades, but if there is something I missed, tell us all what it is and why it's hot.


Take a look at the girls above if you need some help deciding. 
Oh, and if one of our female users wants to make the same poll for guy characters, do feel free.

@JJOR64: This appears to be a shameless copy-paste sir! This is not Giant Bomb! 
 
But anyway, I'm at my aunties massive house with family, stuffing ourselves silly and having a good time. 
HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE!

@CrazyCanuck: Only if they throw in a bonus episode of Yui rolling around on the floor and pulling silly faces for the entire episode. Then I'M SOLD!

General Discussion » who is your favorit bleach character?

Also, I like Rukia, I'm not seeing any love for Rukia in this thread. 
Kenpachi and Hollow Ichigo are badass too, obviously.

" @RJay_64: @Gaff:  While we're nit picking, what about the color of the ties? 1st year=green 2nd=red 3rd=clue  through out the hole 3 years the yui and crew always wear blue ties and Azusa, Ui, and Jun always had red ties WTF! "
Yeah I noticed that too... the hell? 
Ehh, I suppose it's not that important, they probably forgot to change them and just ended up rolling with it or something. The girls who were a year younger had a different colour to the other girls, so I guess that's what was important right?

General Discussion » K-On!! is over

@CrazyCanuck: If they don't have Japanese audio with subtitles I'll be really surprised, like Gaff says I'm pretty sure that's the standard thing to do with anime now. That's a shame about the manga, I was sure I read somewhere they were going to carry on K-On! into their college years. 
 
@Gaff: Oh god I hadn't even thought about the singing. I'm sorry but my throbbing stapler just won't be right in English... okay I may have got the lyrics wrong but you know what I mean.

@RJay_64: Ah well you should have been more specific, in that case it is something to look forward to. I just dread to think what the K-On! girls will sound like in English...

" Don't forget Bandai is making an English dub of the first season and releasing it in America.  We have that to look forward to as well.  "
That is not something to look forward too. K-On!, as with most anime, would be horrible in English. You should watch it the way it's meant to be watched, with cute Japanese voices that sound cool no matter what the characters are saying. The same just doesn't apply for the English language. 
 
@CrazyCanuck said:
" As much as I love the series, i would rather remember K-on as the great series and not a drawn out pile of garbage it could become. The manga is done, let it be! "
So has the anime covered all the stuff in the manga? I was kind of hoping if they make no more anime I'd have some manga still to check out... 
 
@Gaff said:
" @Newten YOU HAVE NO HEART INSIDE! Just some yarn that makes the cold, cold hearts of grown men squeal. Just like K-on, I guess? "
My warm, yarny heart is better than a regular heart. Screw blood, MY BODY RUNS ON MAGICAL YARN NOW!

@Kelleth: I just don't think we should post videos that don't come from official sources. A short clip on youtube though I think is much more acceptable.

@Gaff: I thought it was really touching. I HAVE A HEART BURIED IN HERE SOMEWHERE OKAY?! 
 
There is nothing wrong with looking forward to the K-On! movie.

General Discussion » K-On!! is over

I imagine there'll either be an anime or manga about them at college/university, if there isn't already manga on that, I haven't checked the K-On! manga out. 
I wonder how long it'll be before the movie is out... 
 
Oh, and it was so damn sweet when they were singing to Azusa, of all scenes in K-On! I found that the most emotional. 
I have not buckled yet though! Clannad is the thing that's brought me closest to tears, out of anything. TV, movies or anime. The Azusa scene in K-On! is nothing compared to some of the scenes in Clannad: After Story.

General Discussion » AlphaVictor #3: The One With The Giant Robots

Finished listening to #3 a little while ago and I'll be looking forward to the next one. 
 
Here are those three questions for your next podcast: 
  • How much fan service do you like in your anime? How much is too much? Is there a limit? (personally, I'm a big fan of boobs, so it doesn't bother me one bit) 
  • Would you watch a Kirby's Epic Yarn anime? Or would it be so god damn cute your eyes would melt off your face? 
  • Do you think a Pokémon anime, made for older viewers (mainly the people who watched it when it first came out) would be cool? With a decent plot and perhaps more violence (pretty sure an Arbok was sliced in half in the manga... perhaps not that voilent). What would be ideal for you? 
 
Kind of long questions but that's what you get for not having me on the podcast itself so I could word them better! 
As always, let me know when the next one is done.

General Discussion » AlphaVictor #3: The One With The Giant Robots

@DocHaus: Great to see this is still going full-speed ahead. I feel bad for not getting round to listening to the second one. I'll make it up to you by tweeting about this one to help get the word out. 
 
I listened to the first one and can say I was definitely entertained, so give it a go peeps. 
I'll get #2 playing in the background now I think, I did say I'd listen to it.

Pokémon » What's up with Pikachu?

@Kelleth: No... no it isn't Kelleth. Unless it was from an official source, which I doubt. If some dude just uploaded it to Veoh, then that's piracy ;P

Pokémon » What's up with Pikachu?

@rein: Oh, I don't really class those Pokémon as proper legendary Pokémon. Especially in the anime, since there are lots of them and regular trainers have them. Things like Articuno are pretty much on par with things like Charizard in the anime. 
Now if Pikachu beat Rayquaza or something, I'd be impressed. 
 
I don't EVER remember Pikachu being referred to as a she, by anyone. We are talking about the dub right? Find me a clip of Ash calling Pikachu a she, I want to see it! 
Pikachu has always been a he to me, but all I ever remember Pikachu being referred to as was... "Pikachu". 
Though Pikachu is voiced by a woman but that hardly matters.

Pokémon » What's up with Pikachu?

@rein: When has Pikachu ever fought a legendary Pokémon? And more importantly... when did anyone ever call Pikachu a she? Always been a he in my books. 
 
@Kelleth: Oh dude you so did not just embed pirated anime... damn it Kelleth, some example you're setting. I'll edit it out of your post.
