I think that they are basically afraid of legal retaliations from other countries. Or maybe it's just that they do not want to face public hostility for certain thematics. It looks like they are aware that puritan countries frown upon over certain materials and they simple do not care enough to fight them, after all I think their major income comes from the internal japanese market.
Certainly that list is quite long. Shoujo? What exactly does that mean? Maybe they are talking about "teen sex". They are practically only leaving consensual adult sex.
I watched 6 episodes so far, it's quite good I think (I can't vouch for the rest though). It's kinda like Ghost in the Shell (Production IG too after all).
It's like an Old disabled man gets to be a "virtual world investigator" -kinda like the cybernet in GITS- (the old man was in stasis for 50 years, then he got a cyberbrain), and he needs his ~15/16 year old "nurse" to safely do the "dives". Plus some of the other characters also remind me of GITS characters. (Did I mention that was the first anime I've seen?)
Anyway It's good so far, but I don't really raise my hopes high as for example the thread about it here on Asuki is only 14 pages long (despite that being 26 episodes). I've thought you might heard about it though.
Well for me the whole picture starts like that => see pic
Now for the remaining 9: DO NOT WANT: Element Hunters, Umi Monogatari, Fight Ippatsu, Cobra. Don't know if want: Bakemonogatari, Needless. (depends on the reactions, I might give them a 2-3 episode try, provided I'm not gonna get disappointed during those 2-3 episodes.) Sort of want: Tokyo Magnitude 8.0. Hell Yeah. Some nice juicy looking catastrophe is always nice. I hope they won't be shy at censuring the series, as I just cannot imagine an earthquake in a huge metropolis could be some kinda happy and cheerful event. Canaan: Hell yeah. I think the char design are by Type Moon's Nasu, and Takashi Takeuchi (at least in the sourcematerial). It's definitely worth a try I reckon. It's not made by Type Moon, but definitely inspired by their most prominent members, so I have no reason to believe it's going to be crappy. DO WANT: Umineko. Hell yeah, albeit I have my doubts, since animating that is significantly harder than Higurashi, and the first Higurashi anime is generally considered a poor adaptation. Regardless though, Umineko is definitely going to be one hell of a ride for all the mystery and intrique fans.
I already have too many anime in my backlog to add one more, for the purpose of enjoying a continuation now.
Speaking of backlog I started watching Real Drive. You've heard of it?
actually I don't really like the whole concept behind blogs, I really can't care the less of reading on someone's life, but since I'm lazy I thought to use the interface to publish my strips.
Literally speaking what I'm doing is not a blog.
