Is the image uploader not working or something? All I'm getting is "Oops! No image was selected." When I know it's a viable picture file.

Off-Topic » Just a random anime term question

I've asked a bunch of people about this... what is that fanglike tooth that some anime characters have? Surely it has some kind of name.
 
I have a link to a picture of an example, as I am having problems uploading images to this site

Seriously though, is there a name for that kind of thing?

Gravitation » This series is gay!

When YAOI is in the description on most websites, what do you expect? So, do you mean it's LITERALLY gay, or in the more figurative sense of gay?

Just Anime » How would you replace some of some of the english dub voices?

To start this off, when I was reading the manga I thought that Hercule from DBZ should be voiced by the guy who voiced Rassler in "Dial M for Monkey". If you have no idea what I'm talking about, here's a link:

Seemed melodramatic and funny enough that it seemed to work. What are your thoughts on how to improve other characters' dub voices?

Just Anime » Dubs or Subs?

I'm partial to dubs. Some of the Japanese voices make me cringe (god, tenma-chan, shut up, shut up, shut up!). Plus, some translated subs SUCK (to mention the infamous translation from a source  
I'm not entirely sure of.:
And again I ask... what? Thanks to google image search, you can see TONS of examples of terrible subtitles.
Dubs have voices I can relate to, connect to, understand the emotion behind it! For example, Edward Elrich sounds like a whiny girl with Japanese audio. In the english, he sounds like a teenage boy, what he's SUPPOSED TO BE. I rest my case..

Just Anime » Anybody else seeing an anime witchhunt on the horizon?

Guys, I'd really like you to weigh in on this. I'm genuinely curious about your thoughts...

Just Anime » Anybody else seeing an anime witchhunt on the horizon?

I'm beginning to get worried. Though I agree with how wrong the Rape Game was, I'm becoming increasingly more irritated with the media's response, "Ban the game! Burn down the studio! Put the programmer's heads on pikes!" What these people fail to realize is that these kinds of games have been around for YEARS and I'm wondering why they're just NOW catching up, knowing the buzzards some of those reporters are.
 
I'm afraid that this is only the beginning. I just recently read one of the news posts about a bookstore pulling pin-up art books and magazines for "inappropriate" pictures. I'm worried that soon, animes like Love Hina will have a hassle to deal with, what with Shinobu and Kaolla Su as possible love interests (oooooh! pedophilia, OoooOOOoooh! Morons...)
 
I hope somehow this will fall by out of the media's attention when something more audience-whoring comes out, like dogfighting or something, and it'll fall into obscurity, like the Mass Effect 2 sex minigame, or the Bully controversy, or the GTA crime statistics, and... wait. The media's really got a problem with video games and anime, don't they?
