Fresh to go, here's the second episode of my new series of video reviews for anime. This one's focused around the antics of Ai Amano and unrequited love in the old-school romantic comedy-drama Video Girl Ai.
For a listing of titles I have yet to review from my collection that you would like me to look into, visit my Youtube Channel at this site: http://www.youtube.com/user/ggn3.

Think of this as my effort trying a make a new anime review web-show. I take whatever complete titles I have in my collection and review them on title quality, English dub (if there is one), audio/video/subtitle options and extra features. Before the review, I talk about the history of the title's licensing, how I got it and how easy it would be to collect it. My first review is on Studio Ghibli and Hayao Miyazaki film, Kiki's Delivery Service. Check it out here:
And yes, I am open to suggestions for future reviews on titles that I have in my collection. To those too lazy to check my Youtube channel, here are titles I have in my collection that I will be willing to review:

Hands down, my favorite anime soundtrack comes from Key the Metal Idol. It's not really well-known nowadays, especially since the DVDs of the series have been long out-of-print from Viz and are hard to come by. But the series has a hauntingly powerful soundtrack from songs like Lullaby, In the Night and Watashi ga Soba ni Iru. Here are some songs from the series:

While I do find lolicon and shotacon to be lacking in taste for me, I think banning them outright would place a hazardous situation onto fans of that aspect of anime. Much like hentai, eroge and other similar outlets, lolicon and shotacon provide a means by which fans of it can let out their urges without inflicting them upon any real child in real life. After all, Japanese society does place very high standards on conformity and respect for others which there are people who find it very difficult to adapt to unless they have some outlet to let out any violent and/or sexual urges that doesn't inflict harm onto others in real life. I believe banning anything like lolicon and shotacon would increase the likelihood of such people committing a violent or sexual act in real life as without an outlet for their repressed aggression, there will be a breaking point where such people can't handle the pressures of society any longer.  There hasn't been any documented evidence that proves any lolicon or shotacon fans committing any real life crime against a living person. So as long as there isn't any such unbiased evidence behind this, I can't really support such a ban.
