@Turambar:I said I'd shut my trap but...It's fine to discuss it. I never said it wasn't. I should have clarified myself further, it seems. Some of the other discussions on the same topic on these exact same articles have been thought provoking and very good. However it came down to calling Babylonian out and him basically making some weird implications through his posts. (zaldar is more guilty of this, skipping ...

@Hailinel:I didn't say it was meaningless, I said it was going nowhere considering all that's happening is Nick saying 'I don't like it' and you guys saying 'But your logic behind disliking it is flawed'. The issue itself is fine and a prickly one for westerners like ourselves to deal with, but when it comes down to both sides saying 'your arguments don't work' what the heck is the point?I ...

Gawd, people are going to think is pretentious as hell, but I've reading the discussion and just had to say this. I can't see many people agreeing with what I'm going to say but, eh, at least I've said it.This argument is going absolutely nowhere.First of all, if Babylonian thinks that the fanservice in P4A is too much, what the hell does it matter? It's not like you can change ...

Yeah, of all things, beating children isn't exactly seen as a good thing in Japan to my knowledge. Which, I suppose, adds an extra degree of 'Holy crap' behind Holland's actions. They are genuinely bad actions.

@zaldar said:It would be cool for you to do a review of Mononoke. That was the first show of his that I saw and it was very telling in its effect on me.Agreed! I loved Princess Mononoke. My experience was the same as yours: First Miyazaki film I ever saw. In fact, I need to get myself a copy of it.

@zaldar: I kinda envy what you got to read. We were stuck with pathetic Australian authors from some jingoistic notion that they have some kind of merit or what they've done hasn't been done before.I like both Ponyo and Mononoke-Hime better than this movie though, I agree with you there.

@zaldar: I know a few people that did the same thing, and still struggle with issues from their time as a teenager. But I know just as many people, if not more, that didn't have such problems.Being a teenager can be a horrible experience. However, that's just it; it can be a horrible experience. There is no rule saying you can't have a positive time as a teenager. That's all ...

@zaldar said:I don't know ANY teenagers who go through things as easily as she didI never had any troubles as a teenager. At all. Hell, I thought the angsty/life is so hard stereotype was complete bunk. Key word there being 'thought'. Some people have it easier than others, and some people have a harder time. I realised, after I was a teenager, there is no true blueprint to being a ...

@mutha3:I think I'll have to take that advice. I was more worried at where the show was going to go rather than what was exactly going on in the first episode. I must have taken the cutesy, charming setting the wrong way or something. Clearly I should have stuck around for another episode at least.And I dig pessimism. The first episode sure wasn't super dark, so I clearly didn't even ...

@Babylonian said:@TopographicOcean said:However, it's frankly just as disturbing, to me at least, the Western depiction of teens and children. In the west, they act much more subtle way, using the tired old teenage stereotypes that basically act as a self-fulfilling prophecy, creating legions of idiots that think The Secret Life of the American Teenager is actually supposed to be a blueprint for how their life works. Delightful. That's really healthy ...

@mutha3 said:Good, then what's the point with bringing up the west? The only person comparing the two cultures was FoxxFireart for one post, and then he dropped it. This is a column about a Japanese cartoon, and this discussion spawned from the writer saying a certain aspect of JP culture bothers him.No one is saying the west is innocent, we're just talking about this extremely specific instance of Japanese culture.No ...

DISCLAIMER: The following isn't directed at any one person. It's just my thoughts on the subject as a whole.@Hailinel said:I think my frustration from this is the hypocritical nature that the west takes toward Japan in respects like this. We tell them "Don't do that!" when we're just as guilty, if not more so, of pandering in ways that other cultures would find offensive, if not members of our very ...

It's issues like these that show how pathetically short-sighted many people are. Not even mentioning how I think it's denial of the past (that's a WHOLE other kettle of fish that I won't be brought into discussion about here), it's the epitome of 'there is only side to everything, and it's the side I know'.Kowtowing to political correctness when it's not apt gets right up my nose. I find it ...

Eureka Seven sounds like it gets too personal so I'll give it a miss. I'd take stuffy dudes talking about world domination over 'drama' any day I suppose.And YYH just doesn't sound like my thing.

@FoxxFireArt:It made me think that he said it because he outright spared her and just didn't want to say it. I'm with you, I'd like her to survive.I'm interested to see what will happen with Rukia and Riruka. I actually kinda hope Riruka has merged with Rukia. If only because it would be rather interesting to see Ichigo's reaction to it.

@FoxxFireArt said:I really think Yen Press is doing a great job with the manga.I agree with this wholeheartedly. The translation is good, the actual book quality is good and the colour pages are well done.In fact I just got the Full Colour Omnibus edition today. It's of a very high quality. In fact, I was rather surprised how well the Omnibus was handled. Especially since I didn't think it would ...

TopographicOcean replied to the topic Watch & Learn: SEKIREI #1 on the Sekirei board.
@sotyfan16 said:This is another show I love watching. And apparently, another one that everyone hates for the sake of hating harems. Grow some balls people!Again, Tom, I have to go against all the shit you're talking. You're being such a downer on this show and continue to not even give a chance to the series you didn't even show the opportunity to. I am so disappointed in those commenting on ...

@All_StarSupes:Probably because if her ever got out it help if people could last more than 5 minutes? Yeah, Aizen is broken as hell and Renji would never beat him, but if her ever got out you'd like to think that they could put up some kind of resistance. There's little point in jailing Aizen, then not using the time he is jailed to try and improve in case he gets ...

@All_StarSupes:Just like to point out that 'training to fight Aizen' doesn't mean 'I am now as strong as Aizen, and could fight him now'. It means he has been training to get strong enough. It doesn't mean he can actually fight him now. It implies he's stronger now than he was. It also implies he that the Soul Society is making a contingency plan for when/if Aizen gets out.If I ...

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