    "Whoever voiced him"?? That's Miki Shinichirou, I'll have you know - one of the finest seiyuu in history! And a role for which I awarded him my "Best Actor" statue for 2013.

    Gintarou was the star of the series. Whoever voiced him too did a phenomenal job.

    I ended up loving it, just not quite enough to fit in the Top 10 (11-13 were basically tied, and just missed). I see people dismiss it as fluff and lightweight, and that saddens me because Gingitsune is actually quite deep and emotionally and psychologically subtle.

    As I mentioned on twitter, finished absolutely adored Gingitsune. Think I actually liked it more than you did actually. I think I have a weak spot for these heartwarming, bittersweet, mono-no-aware type stories as of late. Must be getting old or something .

    Very nice appetizer before the new Mushishi season starts next season. Which also reminds me, I have still have to watch the 4th season of Natsume...

    That kinda stung you know .

    And I didn't get banned for making ad hominen attacks or any sort. It was because I was constantly derailing threads that involved PA Works or Mari Okada.

    Nothing that bothered me. Don't get banned again, though!

    You know, just ignore like half of what I just said in the past hour or so. I just went full out hater mode and a bit disgusted about it.

    Well, I suppose there has to be some truth to it because I post here and rarely other places. But I honestly don't see the core tastes of ASF posters being, generally, that different than the Japanese who buy Blu-rays. This place loves lolis, imoutos, idol shows and moe. And the huge mainstream shows that dominate sales (Isin, Shingeki, Madoka, S;G etc) are hugely popular here. About the only major area I see as being underrepresented are fujoshi, which you see with a hit series like Kurobas getting very little discussion.

    I don't see hipster as a pejorative, though that's how it's typically used by fans of moe and imouto and harem shows to describe anyone who dares to disagree with them. Obviously elitist is a derogatory term anywhere, though the haters use it and hipster interchangeably as if they were synonyms.

    I actually got quite irritated and I lashed out more than I intended... so I had to do a lot of editing to my posts. Probably will need to edit more because it still sounds too harsh.

    My brain is completely not working atm which is why I blurted out the hipster/elitist phrase, but I meant to use it a positive term not a negative term. What I was trying to say is that at least to me Animesuki isn't swayed by the hyperpopularity that plagues other major forums/communities have. It's still effected no doubt, but no where near the amount it affects other forums. Also, I just generally find the average poster on AS "smarter" and have "better tastes" than your typical anime fan. I don't mean to bash this but it's like comparing the

    Spoiler for Criticising a certain blogcommunity here.:


    As for mainstream, unless if your definition differs I disagree. When I talk mainstream, I'm talking about the hardcore latenight audience, where stuff like popular LN adaptations, harem comedies and merchandissable females dominate the industry. To me the Japanese otaku audience and your typical non-Japanese speaking anime fan that are really into that stuff are nearly identical.

    Outside of that, I think ANN represents the anime mainstream for the English fandom if they do not fall into the above category.

    Though if you want to go beyond that and talk about mainstream in society as a general... Ghibli. That is about it.

    EDIT: Brain still not working. Edited this response like 4 times by the time you read it...
