I know it's Saturday, but I was busy with a business trip over at Little Tokyo, Los Angeles that took the whole day. Pretend it's Friday. I ran out of fetishes that were unisexual. I wanted to cater to both guys and gals with my past blogs.
Looking back at the blog I started, Help Me Find Anime/Manga with Older Women & Younger Men Couples, I realized it was a fetish.
Sorry, I haven't wind down lately with finals approaching.
For older women fetish in anime and manga, it's not common, but it's not too rare. Thanks to
Let's go over why younger guys think older women are hot.
See Help Me Find Anime/Manga with Older Women & Younger Men Couples. Thanks to Dream, Taichokage, and the rest of the users in the thread for their help.

I forgot that this is a common trope in teacher fetishes.
This is more common than older women fetish because most societies have guys marrying down while girls marrying up in the social and economic ladder.
I don't have a lot of reasons listed.
If you got more reasons or characters you like to bring up, feel free to share them.
Welcome and good evening everybody! simmering from the heat, this is your host Hal, bringing back from a 5 month Haitus, the RoundTable Discussion! Tonight, we are looking at the anime Sket Dance, after just over 1 year's viewing, and we're gonna give our two cents on the show, its ups and downs, and where it should head from hereon. Joining me this evening are two guys fairly versed in all matters Sket, with Takashichea (AKA Taka) and KuroNekoXIII (AKA Kuro)!
We've seen this show out for one year so far, and this light-hearted High School comedy has made strides at being possibly a new mainstay anime for years to come.
The first part of the discussion focuses on the characters of the show. What are your opinions on them, do you like their development, what could use some more work?
Kuro: Personally, I love all three characters. I think Shinohara did an amazing job creating Bossun, Hime and Switch. They are very unique for a shonen cast.
Taka: This whole year of Sket Dance has covered the three main characters' origin stories. They're awesome, but the only thing I find left unanswered is how did Switch get into an Otaku: love anime, pop idols, and playing Sim games. For Himeko, it was a story about being betrayed and finally getting friends. Bossun's origin story is different because he actually lack something from the start.
For the supporting characters, Tsubaki and Momoka stand out for me. Sure, Shinzo, Roman, and Reiko are unique in their personalities, but they do grow up a little, but they don't change much. It's good for the show because they're funny in their own way. Back to Sasuke and Momoka, they change without having a prominent flashback arc. Sasuke is a mild tsundere character who acts harsh to Sket Dance and a rival to Bossun, but when you get to know him close, you know he cares for them. Momoka is a former delinquent who becomes a pop idol. She is just like Himeko: tough looking on the outside, but she has sweet side to her.
Kuro: We can't forget about the teachers, notably Chu-san and J-son. I like how Chu-san has that distant and care-free aura to him, yet he does have his wise moments. I think he has a great presence in the plot-line. As for J-son, he is also a very funny and random character. He adds more humor to the anime and plot in my opinion, and I personally think he deserves more screen-time!
Hal: I do like the cast of Sket Dance a lot, they seem to get a comedic and satirical interpretation of the general character types in high school, and do it well, making them well rounded with multiple aspects to their personality rather than one-dimensional. Bossun, Himeko and Switch are easily the funniest and best developed out of the cast, with a unique dynamic between the three of them. My only fault so far, which hopefully can be attributed to the fact that the anime is only a year old, aside from Momoka (waifu! <3) and Captain, there really isn't much history behind the rest of the characters. Humor is one of the major driving forces of the show, and has had many a sidesplitting moment.
What have been some of your favorite funny moments in the show?
Taka: Darn, there are a lot of funny moments. I love how Switch ruined the moment during episode 56 where Momoka waits for Switch's answer. Then, he wrote "Give me your autograph." Another thing, I loved the expressions on their faces. Bossun's face has that trademark blush face, and Sasuke and Rumi made that face as well. It is hilarious. Switch and Reiko are my favorite, funniest characters while Himeko and Bossun make a great comedic duo due to their questionable relationship. Two of the funniest and memorable episodes are episode 9 where Switch and Himeko become the parents of little Bossun, and episode 43 where Himeko tries to take Bossun on a date.
Kuro: Man I've got a lot of funny moments that I can't get over!
Man, I can go on and on, but those are the ones that come to my mind at the moment. If I kept going on, I'd probably take over an hour to list them all :P
Hal: Don't forget about The Invisible Bossun in Episode 58! starts off pretty awesome with Chu-Sensei cooking up a slick invisible potion, which Bossun drinks by accident. he goes to scare Himeko, but in order to work properly, he has to strip naked. then after he scares her, the potion begins to wear off, and the two of them have to make it back to school, covering him up as they go along! needless to say, Bossun owes himeko big time for having her look like she's runnign around with a moose head like a crazy girl!
Moving on. The story also played a big role in the show, outside from the episodic silliness that punctuates it. how did you find the development of Sket Dance's story?
Kuro: I like the development of the Sket Dance story. I like how each episode is a well-rounded story with at least one take-home message that the viewer can learn. What's also something that I like about the Sket Dance plot is that there are links to previous episodes. For example, episode 9 was when Chu-san created his invention that was supposed to grow hair, but he ended up making people become younger. In episode 19, his invention actually worked, and he created the Tocolotion-10 cream that lets hair grow.
All in all, I like how the series is outlined; its light, humorous, yet filled with loads of life lessons.
Taka: For story development, we haven't seen any drastic changes to the current cast of characters, so it's not much. Only a few characters change due to events such as the Kindergarten performance and the origin stories, but the story still remains the same, comedic with a few serious episodes.
Hal: The story is still developing, in my opinion. we've got a good foundation in relation to the main members, and a few of the outside characters, and in a shift from the lighthearted tone that most episodes have, these arcs are rather deep and dark in comparison. even though the other characters have their own charm, their still isn't that depth in their development yet, but so far (and also since I haven't read the manga for it) it feels like there is a lot more to come in the future involving these characters than their initial portrayals. Mokoka is a good example, with her character development, being as deep as the main trio, shows her going from a Yankee to a pop superstar. so I hope we get good character depth with Saaya as a new Sket Dan member!
Of course, no production is 100% perfect, and Sket Dance isn't any exception. tell us about some of the shortcomings that you believe the show has, and what it could do to address them.
Taka: I think the fan service aspect is pretty useless, and I don't mind fan service, but Sket Dance does not really need them to boost its ratings. Not every character and their special story is awesome. One character I disliked overall for their episode is Yamanobe. I just find the episodes too dragged out except for the video game references in the New Year Special. They got me there.
Kuro: It's hard to pinpoint shortcomings for Sket Dance (I guess I'm biased since I really love the series). I know for one thing that I don't like seeing in Sket Dance is fan service. I don't know why, but I feel it doesn't suit the anime. I think the little fan service moments that do come up from time to time ruins the innocent air to the series.
Hal: Ok guys, we are starting to wrap things up. the last question of the night is, what do you think Sket Dance's best approach should be now for year 2?
Kuro: I think Sket Dance should keep doing what it does! The only thing I'd suggest for year 2 is to slowly add in a few more linear story-lines and to add more development to the side cast. Other than those two pointers, I'd say Sket Dance is perfect the way it is!
Taka: More minor characters appearing especially Roman, Reiko, Chiaki, and Shinzo. For the newer episodes, I want to see them centering more on certain pairs like Bossun and Himeko, Switch and Reiko, and Momoka and Himeko.
Hal: Well for the most part, you've said what I wanted to for character appearances. I'm not sure that the producers want to go down the shipping lanes as of yet, but we'll see. Well guys, we've reached the end of the show here, care to say any last words before we head out?
Kuro: Thanks Hal for holding this roundtable! I'd also like to thank all of the wiki editors and Team W.I.K.I. Nation. that work on the Sket Dance wiki pages. Finally, I'd like to urge you all to start watching (for the new Sket Dance fans) and continue watching (for the current Sket Dance fans) the Sket Dance anime! You have my word that you'll never get sick of it!
That's all from me folks!
Taka: Please try out Sket Dance! If you love comedy and slice life types of anime, then you'll dig the marvelous misadventures of three high school students whose mission to help out their fellow students with problems stemming from bullying to quests for love.
Hal: You've heard it that this trio advise you to check out the other trio, the Sket Dan trio. this is your host Hal, signing out.

Welcome everyone! This blog is designed to supplement Foxx's Community Spotlight articles, adding more breadth and showcasing more of user content and major trends in our community on a monthly basis. I was debating whether to make it weekly. Given my current responsibilities (school, family, wiki, and mod duty), I don't think I can keep up.
I do make wiki/review reports to Foxx on a weekly basis, making sure our reviewers and wiki editors get spotlighted. Seeing Acura Max and Zombie Pie's community spotlight articles, I thought it would great to incorporate more content. This will help the community spotlights.
Despite we had battle themes set up by our best battle users (Battlation of the Month), it's natural that we had some major trends that rock our forum, characters who become extremely popular with new feats revealed. Like What's Out of the Bag noted, the battle community hypes these characters by making lots of battle threads. I remembered Lil SMXLR8 was confused as I was during Might Guy March madness. This month, Gremmy is stealing the spotlight for this month's battle theme. We had a good Hitman Reborn theme going thanks to few users: Haiken, Low, General Van.
If you notice January is blank, it's because I can't remember what major character was popular in the battle threads during that period. Let me know if you remember. This is what stress does to me. Makes me forgetful.
I feel bad that our new wiki editors are confronting these 3 to 4 week old image uploading glitches.
Friends, rivals, brothers or comrades that something happened to them that made them become enemies, started to hate each other, one or the two of them want to kill the other or became on different sides.

The hottest discussion threads we have for Spring 2014 are...
|Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders Discussion|
Plot: The year is 1987 and 17-year-old Jotaro Kujo finds himself suddenly plagued by a ghost-like entity. Jotaro’s grandfather Joseph Joestar, a veteran of a fight to save humanity fifty years prior, arrives with his own supernatural aura and explains that this power, known as a “Stand,” physically manifests its user’s spirit and can be controlled by its user at will. The sudden emergence of these Stands is revealed to be caused by the revival of the megalomaniacal vampire DIO (the Joestar’s longtime enemy) whose awakening from his century-long slumber has triggered Stands to awaken down the Joestar family line, including in Jotaro’s mother whose uncontrollable Stand will ultimately kill her in a few weeks’ time. Jotaro, Joseph, and their allies have fifty days to locate DIO (using their Stands to thwart DIO’s network of devoted Stand-user minions along the way) and eliminate DIO himself in order to save Jotaro’s mother and prevent DIO’s ambitions of world domination.
|Chaika - The Coffin Princess Discussion|

The two travel with Toru's adopted sister, Akari, the employed member of the group and thus Toru's source of income.
|The Irregular at a Magical High School Discussion|
Plot: The story takes place in a world in which magic is not a fairy tale, but has existed for nearly one hundred years. In the spring, the Private Magic University Affiliated High School (Magic High School for short) is welcoming its new students, and names the top student with the best grades at the time of their arrival the Bloom (read as “garland” in Japanese), and the student called the Weed is the Bloom's replacement. Siblings Tatsuya and Miyuki Shiba are designated as the Weed and Bloom, respectively. Miyuki is given the title of Bloom due to her amazing grades, while Tatsuya is given the title of Weed due to his poor magical practical scores. Tatsuya, the young man who always has a farsighted expression, and Miyuki, the young woman who feels far more for her brother than sibling love.

Hello everyone and welcome to this week's manga releases. This blog was one of Sora_thekey's project back in Anime Vice where he informs folks about weekly manga releases in the states. This is our way of encouraging folks to support the industry.
For this week, I'm only familiar with Watamote after seeing only the anime version. I love the anime. The manga is on my wish list. Other manga series I'm interested is Animal Land, Bunny Drop, and Flowers of Evil. Being a big fan of Zatch Bell, I didn't know Makoto Raiku did another series. I'm curious about Animal Land. I chose Bunny Drop because it was an anime series that Sora loved. I'm not much of a slice of life fan, but there are some series in the genre I loved, Sket Dance and Pet Girl of Sakurasou. Of course, Flowers of Evil was the dark horse anime series back in 2013. I still haven't seen the anime or read the manga, but it was popular back in my community. I seen the anime screenshots with the infamous retroscope.
All comments are welcome. I would love your two cents on these series. What series are you interested in? Thank you.
Note: This time, I posted in Comic Vine first since Anime Vice's image uploading is lagging. Plus, it would be interesting to see how the list looks like from being pasted from CV in AV. I did the opposite way for the last Quick Picks.
Thanks to PikaHyper for uploading this week's manga releases.
For the Light Novels, I have to add them in AV's database later.
