    Thats probably true, if something really means a whole lot to you then you will go out of your way to get it done no matter what.

    Hmmm, maybe, I don't really know that many females who are into tv/anime anymore so its hard for me to say other then just my random thoughts. Yeah, well either way no matter what they do it is still a series I will probably enjoy.

    I feel like there were quite a lot of people who liked Ruri's character , either her or Ayase were pretty much everyone's favorites. As I said, Kirino comes off a selfish bitch for most of the series, but as long as you watch the series through / carefully its pretty easy to realize its all a front and that she is just as caring/weak as anyone else is behind their front. Well hopefully that little tid bit of news helped to brighten up your day

    Well, its very rare that I have seen a series turn into a ecchi when it doesn't start out as one, usually when people think of ecchi its the more obvious cases like To Love-Ru or Freezing or something else along those lines. As you said though, fan-service isn't bad as long as it doesn't hurt the actual story or its actually part of the comedy of the series. I think that is because of the mass of High School anime's that we have been getting though, if you got high school kids and need some fan-service, what place can be better then the beach? Recently though, I haven't been seeing as much fan-service as I use to, maybe its because of the recent releases or I am just ignoring the series that focus on that, but it seems to be appearing much less recently.

    If you really want to come to the states to study, I suggest going to any state but that one, cause as you said, its hell there right now. Well I don't know the best overall states for Media/Practical Arts, I know that New England has the best overall education/colleges in the states and the economy up here isn't that terrible (or at least no where near as bad as California) so you could look around that part of the states.

    Yeah, all that matters to us really is who wins in the end, that and the questions that we get to vote on, since it seems Colorado and Washington legalized pot, well I don't do that kind of stuff I am pretty sure its about time that we made it legal.

    Hahahaha. Oh my god. "Yeah, he's a professor.... of being a dog!" That scene is probably one of the worst things ever, and I can't stop laughing whenever I think of it.

    A worthy contender.

    Most people roughly our age in North America got their start through shounen action, and that's perfectly fine. It's not something I grew up with (there's nothing like that on television here), so I've no nostalgia for it, and on its own merits it's never interested me much. I'm not trying to suggest that there are anime tiers and that you need to graduate from the shounen action genre to become a "true fan" or any such nonsense. It's just not a genre I've ever been able to get much enjoyment out of.

    What I'm thinking about your inquiry is that we base off of direct Japan media, while dubs and Viz are licensing already released series.
    That is true, and American (and to some extension worldwide fandom, since it's affected both by American trends and by what gets licensed by American distributors) fandom only really matters in the sense that they determine what's available for purchase for me. That's my only concern. Western tastes rarely determine what gets produced in Japan. I don't mind being in the minority (in some ways, I even enjoy it), I just want there to be enough of a contingent that agrees with me to allow licensing of series with a less broad appeal. I could list of a few dozen series that deserve a release but unfortunately haven't, but overall, things are pretty good these days. With the amount of titles being released, it'd be unreasonable of me to complain, I think. I hope it stays that way, and I think that the diminishment of physical media is a bigger threat to that status-quo than the possibility of shounen action eclipsing the market could ever be. But that's a whole other discussion.

    What, are you saying you're not an ardent supporter of SOPA and its many cousins? Why, I'd never! I'm not saying piracy is fine and dandy, but the way big business are trying to deal with it through the government make it really hard to sympathize with their supposed plight.

    I'd agree with that. They're stupid, but in a good way. Certainly better than most of the stuff I watched back then.

    Two words. Chicken nuggets. You can't tell me there's a more efficient legal way to produce food than that. Well.... maybe hot dogs. A lot of the stuff we're eating these days is pretty disgusting and probably borderline toxic.

    I went ahead and read the article. You're a pretty smooth operator, man. Good job getting that guy to answer your questions, they were phrased professionally. Good idea reaching out to the industry too, you never know when that might come in handy down the road. As far as anime goes, Viz is really not my kind of company. I'm pretty much allergic to modern shounen jump titles, it's the one group of anime I almost universally dislike on every level. Not exactly a popular opinion for an anime fan to hold, but there it is. As far as manga goes though, they've got a great and far more diverse selection of titles. Most of the manga I own are from Viz. (But I don't really read *that* much manga.) I'm a little ambivalent about anime like that gaining greater popularity. On the one hand, yeah, anime is growing, that's a good thing, but will that result in more anime in general; or will it push the stuff I enjoy away and further enhance the popularity of the already dominant shounen fighting genre? I dunno, any thoughts on that?

    That's almost as good. Just one more push and you'll be there.

    Yeah, it's hard not to be cynical about the process at this point. I go through phases of wanting to be active somehow and just wanting to stop even bothering keeping up with what's happening. Although that Nichijou idea sounds pretty neat, maybe that could serve as a stepping stone to greater revelations.

    Well thats pretty cool, got to start somewhere right? Honestly I want to eventually work in making games, but any form of the entertainment industry is just such a risk right now with the economy.

    That wouldn't shock me if its true, I imagine they go for a more serious drama if there target audience is females. Even though I know they like each other, the series just seems to constantly make light of/fun of that fact it seems to me, maybe my opinion will change in the next few episodes if it starts getting more serious.

    Well, I was personally a bigger fan of Ruri but I saw nothing wrong with Kirino's character, she honestly seemed like a real person to me in the way that she acted (which might be why many people didn't like her). Well, I can see hating one of the main character's a reason for disliking a series being legit even if I don't agree in this case. Yup! A second season has already been scheduled for April 2013! They are currently re-airing the series in japan with the true route (the 4 OVA episodes) before they move on to the next season.

    Well I believe there is a word for a series that is just fan-service, its called Ecchi and/or Hentai depending upon how far the fan-service plans on going

    I hear yeah, I don't live in a apartment yet like you do but talking to people I know its silly how much it can cost to just rent a apartment. Its hard to say, it seems like the economy is getting worse everywhere but places like China so assuming that keeps up, things are only going to get worse for us here on out.

    I think all American's treat the election the same way, well pretty much like 3 Years and 10 Months of not caring and then for the last 2 Months we all watch the debates and watch the politicians all make fools of themselves at one point or another xD.

    Oh, absolutely. I loved Jim Carrey when I was younger. Ace Venture, Cable Guy, Liar Liar, even the more serious-leaning The Truman Show. Most of it just doesn't hold up that well in my opinion. Though I think I'd actually still enjoy Truman Show if I rewatched it today. Been a good ten years I think.

    I don't think you get get anything that legally qualifies as chicken for cheaper than KFC produces them. 900 dollars per half-disk, huh. In other words, the Aniplex USA model.

    Grubby mitts? I resent that, I wash them at least once a week! Why, recently I've even started using soap. I don't believe that you're not a racist, though. You just always exude that sort of boiling anger and intense intolerance of anything foreign.

    Hard to miss when it actually hits. Following politics is a nigh-masochistic endeavor anyway. It'll drive you up the wall no matter which side you're on.

    I don't even remember that scene. I think the only Carrey comedy I still enjoy is the Cable Guy. I know that's a contentious one.

    Hong Kong already beat you to it with that torrent to disk idea, unfortunately. Maybe you could revolutionize the whole thing by adding English subtitles that are actually legible, though!

    That's a lot of cool stuff there man, I find that sort of information quite interesting, and it's fun to know for sure. Thanks for detailed explanation of everything! Sounds like there's a great deal of incentive to play those games for an intellectually fueled mystery. I especially liked that theorized ice with a higher melting temperature. That'd be awesome to own. I liked Knox's rules for writing detective fiction too, they seem to cover what'd be "fair" in that sort of a scenario, and it's neat to see it all laid out like that. I know a lot of bad mysteries that break at least a couple of those, and when it just comes out of nowhere or is too elaborate to look even remotely feasible, the impact is often lost. Oh, and I couldn't help but think of this when I read "Chinaman."

    Oh, and I bet that 999 would be Herman Cain's favorite game. Sorry, I don't know if you even follow politics. I just had to.

    Can't hurt that is for sure. Hmmm, that would certainly be a interesting job to have, but I feel like its hard to get actual work inside that industry though. I want to learn Japanese as well, but my college doesn't offer a course in it so I have to try and learn what I can from the internet (which, trust me, is not much). Yeah, I kind of imagined that would be how it would work but I never went past 100 level since they were just electives so didn't know for sure.

    Thats really what I like about it, it doesn't feel like your typical anime, even for a shoujo (although I have little experience in this genre, but it feels different from the other shoujo I know). Hmmm, honestly I think I would like this series better if they didn't end up together and just ended up being friends.

    Well I personally really like her character ... maybe it is because I have read all the novels ... and watched/played all the games ... and read the manga ... okay I am kind of a fanboy of the series -.- Honestly though, the anime makes her out to be more of a bitch then any other of the other materials based on the series. l think they did that so there was no way that the idea of incest in the anime series came up so they made her out to be a huge bitch for most of the series except toward the end. If the second season of the anime goes off the novels though (which it better o.o), then we are in for some hilarious stuff in the second season.

    I don't mind fanservice, as long as it doesn't take away from the story or fun of the series, like High School of the Dead was a series that was completely ruined by fanservice, I think it would have been decent without all of the Boobs every 3 seconds.

    I like to think that once I have a stable income and am not paying back $20,000 in student loans that I will be able to use my money I what I love, and what I love is anime ^(^.^)^

    Just a random question, is Canada all that interested in the U.S. Presidential election? Cause I know that certain European countries and China are watching closely (maybe because we owe them $10 trillion dollars but that is besides the point), was just wondering if they are talking about it there at all.

    Thats pretty cool, I do photography as a hobby of mine, I really enjoy doing it but as with art, I is not very good xp. What yeah hopping to do with it all? work in film or concepts? cause that would be pretty awesome. Yeah, since pretty much everything is caught up in the business world now-a-days so taking some courses on it will help, although the few business courses I did take seemed so ... common sense that I wondered why they were classes, mind they were intro 100 level courses, but even for 100 level they seemed so common knowledge.

    I really liked the characters and the way they were presenting the story, the issues seemed to be around Muzi and Yosh and there internal relationship, not external drama which is what I am afraid they are going to shift focus to. I have no problem with a love triangle that is done well, its just that I never really have seen one done well, it always results in either the two girls beating the shit out of each other at one point or the two of them getting supper girly girl to try and get the guys attention. I will watch it to the end for sure, maybe it will surprise me for once and do a love triangle right ... or it can end like School Days when Yosh prevents Mizu from studying and she fails her finals o.o

    I really don't know, I mean I myself am a massive fan of My Little Sister Can't Be This Cute, just because I honestly find the series hilarious and love the characters, but besides that most of the shows/manga of that genre kind of scare me. My guess is its just the phase that the anime community is going through, they usually seem to go through them.

    Then they are very good at making characters

    Yeah, manga is pretty expensive compared to anime, although neither one is really all that cheap for a college student. I honestly just read most of my stuff off of online sites, I usually try and buy stuff from the manga's I really enjoy, but its hard since really the only way for me to buy this stuff is online (and I lack a debit/credit card) or at the Boston Convention once a year. Well thats awesomeful, I am pretty much caught up on all my manga right now so got to wait for all the releases this week, oh well, at least I got something for every day
