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.

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.

I admit I do miss the intelligence inherent in the 2006 designs. While the K-on style does have its place, and definitely did show intelligence behind the girls’ faces in K-on which I attribute to why they were likable, compared to original Haruhi’s smoothly angular designs, this does feel like it lacks the same mystery of the original. That said, I agree with Sasazuka’s assessment, this is not a bad derivative. It, like everything, will take a bit of getting used to considering my nostalgic …

As soon as I saw the young girl in the swimsuit, I had the thought that I wish this were an anime in the sae vein of Hajime no Ippo so we could see some kind of creative writing on how she would win against the larger, stronger girls. Then my mammalian mind liked that thought, and then my reptilian brain said “Bouncing tits” and now I’m moving on with my day.

Only real complaint for the FFXIII battle system specifically I’ve heard is that everything wasn’t unlocked soon enough for characters. But really that didn’t matter, it gave a reason to use the other characters, because they were the ones with the abilities. Whether they liked the characters or not was kind of irrelevant to the uses. FFXIII was more like a commander of the battle than actual individual control like older games. It’s that part that everyone got up their own asses about. The …
