Welcome Officially to the first episode of Virtuous Queen. This is actually part two of a post i made over at the site named Cartoon Electro, where I was talking about Modern Era (1998 - 2009) problems. Hayao Miyazaki, one of the greats (but not the greatest, that title belongs to the one and only Osamu Teskua) made a comment, stating that he doesnt watch many modern day animated features because its...too wild for him, too weird.
But to put in another way, Part of the reason - is the japanese animation companies going global - and that comes with massive growing pains.
Crunchyroll isnt helping matters.
In fact, it might lead into the end of the anime industry once held as the rebellion to wake up the american and european industries.
Crunchyroll, to keep it short are nothing more then what I like to call, the Socialization of American Business, they take but do not make deals to serve themselves and their industry they feel they are the "stewards" of. They say they are legit but just like Bernie Madoff Before them, they are nothing more than a ponzi scheme and maybe the worst of them all - because it effects how one country business men talks to those who want to make something of themselves and not create something that is against what this country stands for - or diss this country or make fun of those actually trying to find work and or working to feed themselves or kids if they feel they can take it (thats another matter)
Crunchyrolls fan base (or at least the majority of it) are nothing more than those that feel that America has failed them - and for some who are not white - up and until Obama's administration being sworn in, America felt foreign, these folks get the money after work to feed themselves but not feed the need to be free and the good things America can be. They felt they have no voice. Well guess what for both of yall in that majority of a fan base - your still dont have a Political voice, maybe not even a voice to speak...the only voice they have is the voice that would use them as joke and a curiosity - see the Pikachu Bread girl - speak in broken Japanese and you can be a porn star too - just be a honky tonky weeboo female with no sense of self or woman hood or self respect and you too can be famous on youtube. And there boyfriend's if they have are no better - they just want get tail and they dont care if its male.
Crunchy Roll is not Naspter - it not even close to its metameme nor what it portend to the music industry (which is in its Post Modern Stone Age, and thats because they couldn't find a replacement for its CD format- the music world was recovering from the death's of Tupac/Biggie/Cobain and the music coming out was badly produced and over produced - see Guitar Heroes Youtube comparing both the DVD/Blu-Ray sample in the game from the CD version)
Here is why you cannot respect Crunchyfail- and the fans that follow them. One, nobody in the anime industry worth any soul or morality stopped them. Two, Crunchy and Arlong to get along Part started this whole trend during the time of 4Kids's One Piece run. Their Board and Their connections with 4Chan and there script kiddies and Shakedown artists, that talked shit over at Live Journal; showed the American Animation fan base to look at the situation and realized they did not want any part in this, this Nonsense - they knew the rules they do need certian rules. But this Bullshit that AP and CR was playing was most foul.
The American Animation business, to protect there bottom lines and themselves, started asking Retaliers for better space in there video shelves. This in turn finally got the motor running for the Anime Correction of 2006-2009 but what they didnt know is how pervasive Crunchroll became after the dust settled.
What Crunchroll represents is a change, but not in the change that will bring true respect to this genre. In fact just like the Wii now with the Video Game hobby - it creates a brand new ghetto, where old memes come back and the fanbase doesn't do ANYTHING to change it outside of a few conventions north of New York. And note when I say fanbase I mean This Particular Era of the Fanbase - not the 60's one - not the 80's or 90's versions - not even the Pokemon/Dragonball Z fanbase - THIS Particular era. Its their behaviors, narcissistic overtly feminized weaklings that do fit the type of what the American Animation industry is trying to avoid for many reasons, some I strongly agree with and some i disagree slightly on their execution, of said plans.
When the fanbase is ready to make behavioral, economic and cultural attitude changes to their way of promoting there hobby, and when they are really ready to understand how to do business with the rest of the American animation community and stop supporting Crunchyfail and there cohorts at Arlong to Get Along Park - and until then - you do deserve to be mocked by the rest of the animation fanbase - your teachers do have the right to fail you when you cant even draw Jack Kirby Style - your girlfriend should worry about your anime female model collection if she isn't apart of that world and MTV has the right to laugh at you - because your acts and your behaviors and your anger are all fucking CHILDISH!
You live in a virtual world, where those shows you watch have no power, no wonder - no joy and no feeling - it might have some idea of it but when you dont hold the item in your hand, in the form of Blu-Ray or a UMD to place in a console or Blu-Ray player in order to show you the wonder of this business -you are nothing more than consumers, acting like drug addicts waiting for the next Dere fix or Uggu wail or "dont go there" moment. You dont see the pens, the paper the effects and the magic in many great series. You have falling into the same trap that the rest of the yuppie/college life folk has fallen into - a lifeless future, where all are the same and there is no change - no wishes hopes and dreams - everything has become nothing but ones and zeros.
That is what Crunchyroll means - its is the whimpering end of everything that real anime fans have fought for. And there maybe no one who want to stand up and show a real change and stand up for what is right. That is why the modern era reeks of death...
It took me a while to get this done, but Its finished. But Virtuous Queen is more than just doom and gloom - this Anon of the Internet has other issues and great series you may never hear about I will showcase here.
Until next time.
