What people seem to actually be sick of is the way the industry works, and that Aya is working within that framework even after having violated the doll-like image the industry tries to maintain for morons. People are just angry at the house of cards tumbling down, and that she is still ‘alive’ amidst the ruins, and don’t understand why.

You complain about her getting attention. If you’ve ever lived a life where you’re being scrutinized by people, you would have a clue in the world that that is not ‘attention’ that any sane human being wants. It’s thrust upon you, especially when there is nowhere that you can escape it.

You complain about her twitters being for attention… but have you had a tumor before? I have… you kind of want to talk to someone about it if there’s even a suspicion. And if a taxi driver kidnaps you? Yeah, I’d imagine that’d be an ordeal for a celebrity woman. If you believe she lied about it, that’s another issue entirely, but I have no real reason to assume she did.

If she is lonely enough that the only people she felt she could express how scared she was was to her twitter followers, she gets my sympathy. If you can say something like ‘she should get some friends’ then you know nothing about what friends can become when you gain celebrity. Your life changes, as does your relationship to them. It takes very, very strong bonds to survive that. Rock stars, actors, and various A and B-list celebrities haven’t ended up in rehab or killing themselves because it’s just the ‘way it is.’ Do you have any idea how lonely it is to be surrounded by people who love you, but know absolutely nothing about you, nor really care?

That is why people will still talk about her reasonably. They have perspective. She did roles that we love, made music we enjoyed, and we’re not liking her to spite the people who don’t like her, regardless of what those morons think.

    Do you have a reference citing her refusing to voice for KyoAni?

    Kyoani’s done stuff that’s not just guys. Free! was basically just K-on with guys who acted like girls. They weren’t even gay, just… effeminate for no real reason. Like episode 1 Makoto was just this pansy bitch clinging to Haru’s shirt in a dark building. It made no sense and felt completely fake. So much so that it was pathetic to just about everyone so they pulled him back over the next episodes to being the *reaction then smile warmly* character. Free was decent but annoyed me because …

  • Final Fantasy XV GamesCom Trailer Too Emotional:
    The experiences are stronger in many ways however. The reality is what you experienced in your formative years as a teenager on SNES and NES and all that will not happen again. There was a bit more imagination necessary with the worlds because voices were put to the characters in your head, and the scenes had to be pictured. But put simply, I love being able to see what directors, animators, and creators can create that I would never have imagined. I know what I would envision, that’s why I …

    Mass Effect, Spec Ops: The Line, Witcher… just look a bit and take your head out of your ass basically and you’ll find great things. I’ve said it before, if you go into a world, whether it be a game or an anime, with an expectation, all it will be is ruined. Start by going in with the intention of having fun, and you’ll basically reach a point quickly where you flow with the story and characters like a river. It’ll become harder to get disappointed, you’ll have more fun, you’ll find fun in …

  • Natsuiro High School “Beastly Hentai Action”:
    I scrolled through the images before reading what the fuck was happening with an expression of confusion I didn’t realize I had until I went back until I read the description. And then promptly lost my shit when the context clicked in my head for all pictures at once. Then I said a silent prayer to god internet for its grace.
