swaggity replied to the topic Vice Pit Question Thread on the General Discussion board.
@No_name_here: @samweller999:Sam and Tom. I got a question. In terms of single characters, which characters in both American and Japanese media do you think have had the most standout/are the most recognizable characters worldwide? And even have had the most impact in their home country and worldwide.For example, I think as many people know of Spongebob equally like they know of Pikachu.-Although Asuka is very popular in Japan(there is even ...

@metalsnakezero said:Highschool of the Dead is actually pretty popularExactly. I don't know where Sam got that HOTD was underrated...I, personally, don't like the show. I've tried it. I don't dig the whole zombie(overdone) + boobs(overdone) concept. However, I know MANY people that do.

@sickVisionz said:@swaggity: You can watch Bleach 100% for free on Crunchyroll and Hulu.Bleach was just an example. But that's nice to know that they have it for free.

Well, my issue wasn't really "why should I get it for free", because I do have Netflix. But Netflix doesn't have EVERYTHING.They recently took off Bleach, for example. So what? Should I go and start paying for Hulu and Crunchyroll, spending all my money on these different services to get all this different anime that some services have that others don't, when it is already free online and all the ...

(( Something I saw online and decided to post here ))While visiting Japan for business,me(Victor Sleever) and Mike Birnton, from Viz Media, decided to spare some of our time and go to Comic Market 78, the biggest manga festival in Japan, something that happens only twice a year. The festival lasts for 3 days, from 23 august to 25 august.After some time wandering around the Tokyo Big Sight convention center, ...

@Top8cat: I'm not gonna lie. I'm trying to not really care because this is the internet, and it's just a bunch of opinions, but I really, and truly HATE when Japanese anime gets involved in American media... to a degree. I showed you a picture of AME-COMI toys. Supergirl does NOT belong as a Japanese anime character. And I'm sure there are a lot of people out there who would ...

@Destinyheroknight: Well, I stand by that. Keep Japan anime out of American media. It doesn't work. I don't like it at all.And if you Google it, you can see fan drawings of Family Guy in anime form. They look terrible.

@Destinyheroknight: Well, me not liking something =/= being close-minded. At all.I really don't like when anime takes American shows and makes them into an anime.The Wolverine anime? Dumb. X-Men anime? Dumb.Iron Man only worked because he's a robot/mecha. That's it. Other than that, no. Keep anime out of American media.Seriously, when people try to make the South Park characters or Family Guy characters look like anime, I just facepalm at ...

"Ameri-Me". Never heard of that term. However, I remember going to a comic/anime shop, and I see those new toys - Wonder Woman in anime form, Supergirl as well, etc. I hate that. I cannot stand when American things gets Japan'd-up. It doesn't work. Let's keep American things American and Japanese things Japanese.

@samweller999: @No_name_here: What do you think about the future of anime?Topics to discuss, for example -. Flash animation seems to be hot on the rise. Do you think Japanese animators will take that into account and make a Flash-based anime?. (At least this applies to me from what I see) The newer generation of kids just don't seem to have that "drive" to watch anime. When I had Toonami, that's ...

@Destinyheroknight: Haha yup, You got a point. I can tell by the difference in covers exactly what you mean. Like I said, I wasn't afraid to admit if I was wrong.However, I don't know if you agree or not, but the exploitation of fanservice is definitely more frequent in Japanese anime than it is in comics.

@Destinyheroknight said:@swaggity:It kind of does, since it the point of the book is the fanservice and if someone was buying it for that reason they won't be saying it is to much (since they know what they are getting into)That like me saying there to much action in AvX VSIf you want to look at it from that perspective, fine. Individuals can find things not too much, but then I ...

@Destinyheroknight said:@swaggity:Even I think fanservice can be a bit too much. Not only that, but sometimes it gets a little too pointless as well. Really, Power Girl's breasts aren't over-exploited for the reader. Sure, they are there, but they are definitely not over-exploited like you see in shows like Rosario + Vampire and Girls Bravo. Sometimes, the fanservice gets a little too much and pointless in those shows.But, those titles ...

@Lurkero said:There is also the problem with continuity shakeups like what DC Comics did last year. Suddenly, there are parts of the DC Universe that have changed, some are still the same, and some are kinda the same but not really.This is all that I agree with you on. All the retcons over and over can be ridiculous. But, understand, they do them because it's a business. To try and ...

Also, one thing I have to address in regards to "things being long", what do you think would be easier to get into? One story arc of Superman, or 20 of One Piece?Sure, comics have multiple story arcs. Some tie in. Some don't. Let's go with the one's that don't. And that are GOOD stories by good writers.Reading Superman from Jeph Loeb or from Brian Azzarello or from Mark Waid, ...

I dropped this response to Foxx Fire. You all are more than welcome to disagree with what I say, just lemme know what you disagree on.Just gonna quote my post.--In my honest opinion, something like this has to be looked at from a cultural standpoint. At least I believe so. For example - comedy. A lot of japanese anime references japanese history and culture in their work. How will an ...

Batman is Anime, and Zelda's an RPG. These are a few of the most dumbest (sic) things.
