    If I needed to sum up my thoughts on K-ON and shows like it, this song is pretty much spot on.

    So Persona sells more than Shana, Mirai Nikki, Chihayafuru, and Ben-to combined.

    WTF!

    *burns something down*

    Japan has turned on Shana. What to do?
    Big-selling titles in 2011 were based around titles or directors/writers with considerable/loyal fanbases. I don't like using the word ;fanbase' too liberally but I honestly think it was the biggest driving force of 2011.

    Honestly, don't let sales dictate how you feel. Sales and quality are inversely proportional in a lot of ways. They're not things that associate that often. Marketing and fanbases are more important in making a show sell than actually being good.

    Just like what you like. Obsessing over what Japan buys will ultimately lead you to despair in the end.

    But if you do it better you can't pass it off as "artsy amateurish" work and nobodody would be interested

    Sounds like a plan! Let's get a fellowship together and have an epic adventure, space opera style!

    Umineko...now there's a show I haven't heard of in ages. Never liked the show, but I could be convinced to make a clip of it to this song.

    If you happen to notice/remember the crappy movie this was on the soundtrack for ages after it was first made, you'd probably get why I picked it.

    So then I went searching some posts with him and found this let's call it an "Okadaism"...
    I once considered writing a StrikerS fanfic that would have been essentially a rip off of the Full Metal Panic Fumoffu hotsprings episode, with Vita essentially playing the role of Sousuke's over the top security system. The outlines for my original fiction projects (I never seem to get time to actually write) can have their moments too.

    Meh, if people want to get butthurt about someone not liking what they worship, so be it. It's not like this year had much of anything to get that way anyway, but shrug, each to their own.

    See - there's the kind of witty sarcasm that everyone can enjoy. Keep it up.

    Allegedly the reason Jericho took so long to return was that he wanted to do the Y2J angle this time - as did his fans. He wasn't the only one taking that stance last year. CM Punk had long-going tense negotiations before he struck the deal to gradually make him able to go Austin-style tweening. I'd like to believe the Y2J angle will be Jericho's call and that he gets a proper choice in how his character goes this time. Considering he's stayed loyal and uninjured for as long as he has, I think it's time he was given the right to unleash that character as people want it to be. And considering the whole 2012 apocalypse theories nonsense, Jericho should be able to crank Y2J and take on CM Punk as seems likely. Predicting Jericho to win Royal Rumble, challenge Punk at WM28 and win.

    I have low thresholds for protagonists that take an extremely long time to grow up. Multiple Gundam series, Eureka Seven, etc. After I saw Edward Elric in Fullmetal Alchemist and how that was the one long-length show the anime club has positively digested in the last ten years, it makes me wonder why therer are so few protagonists like him. He certainly has flaws that keep him real but he generally rises to the occassion from Day 1.

    Admittedly when I told my Gundam friends that when I finally found a Gundam series I liked and that it was Double Zeta, their common response - despite being asked independently without the others knowing - was why I hadn't watched Zeta first. It was interesting to note they figured I wouldn't like the original but thought Zeta might have been one I could handle.

    As for other Gundams - Wing was deplorable. Seed - shiver. Destiny - whatever. 00 - CELESTIAL BEINGU SPAM! Wing and 00 have both been wooden spooners in club polls.

    From memory, Tomino's chauvanism came early. Daitarn 3 (1977) is as sexist as anything I've ever seen. Victory was made when a seiyuu he loved married another seiyuu, so he got inspired to kill every female in that series. Yeah, Tomino and women - not a good mix. Although most directors are generally jerks anyway.

    Well, you gave an amusing short piece of hate. So I figured I'd better give one about love in return. Why on earth it ended up that way, blame it on my daydreams about females making out and getting down with each other. I really struggle to think of a couple to write about where I like the guy as he originally was, so I seem to feel more comfortable when writing about two women. I can't say I've seen a case of romance in anime where I truly dug the couple. There's always at least two factors that rduce the 'Awww!' factor and make me facepalm. My IRL friends and I once had a series of messages back and forth talking about all the watchable romance anime we had seen and saying what we liked and what drove us nuts, all coming to the conclusion any romance anime would drive us bonkers before finally giving us satisfaction in the couple. I thought since it was Christmas and your piece gave me a temporary obsession with rhyming, why not just dive into the deep end and write something utterly abusurd yet deliciously yurilicious. I did alert Triple_R to its existence but no word yet. Maybe he's more in shock than you were. ^^

    I saw your top 10 list. A good list. Although on a personal note...you might be a bit disgusted at me. I've really tried to get into the Gundam franchise. But most of the series drive me bonkers or bore the heck out of me. G was okay because of Mister Asia. But the only one I've followed up and kept watching is...*drum roll*...Double Zeta! And I can imagine you facepalming after reading that. Sorry man. Kamille, Amuro and everyone else - I lose my mind quickly over them. Judau and the antics that cast get up to - I dug that right away. The sticking point for me is Judau is not a prick like most male protagonists are for me. He may be a bit in denial at times, but for the greater part, the guy just does what he has to and goes with the flow. I know that series made Bright look a lot more stupid than he was in the first two series and that it's really a parody series that was meant to kill the franchise since Tomino hates franchises. But...ANIME JA NAI! I love that theme so much! And that cast is...likeable! Something that's freaking rare for me in any Gundam title I've tried! Typical I'd like the Gundam series that a good deal of people consider the most unlike the franchise!
