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.

    That is a bit of a representation, though. That part is not as clearly conveyed because as with most artistic works they don’t like to hold your hand through it. The fact that it can represent both elements of it being a comment on anime’s spiraling, and also some people interpreting it the other way, whether ironically or realistically, is mainly a mirror for you to perceive how you think of reality. For me it’s showing what could be for anyone in the otaku lifestyle, the blatant nature of the …

    Hey, look. It’s what Pokemon Snap should have been. The funniest part is I did game testing for D3, and I can already see what bugs would have to be looked for… and they would simultaneously be required to not be written up as clipping bugs, nor written up for ratings violations…

    For a time, and thanks largely to being introduced to Circle Kuusou Zikken’s One Piece Nami doujinshi, I consider Nami to be one of the hottest girls in anime. It evolved because she’s a great character at least as far as I have seen, and that rounded her out to be gorgeous for me. That is for much of the early style, Oda and the anime got rather strange over time, same with Bleach, everything stopped looking as good to me. But my entire perception of how hot she was was peppered by that …

    Okay, I admit, I did laugh pretty hard for some reason at the unabashed quick but steady degeneration into blatant hentai pics. Bravo for the creative and arousing pseudo-troll. You would not be arrested in the UK for this one.

  • Locodol Bouncy Bikini BD Extra:
    @ anon 23:59 That is partially true. Although there has been some truly excellent, original anime that has been created in the recent years too, so throwing the baby out with the bathwater is just a sad generalization. There may be many clones, but that is not limited to anime. It’s every genre, and plus the reality is the animes are not all that bad. The clones are here because it worked the first time. The only reason it didn’t keep working as well is because we’ve seen it before, it’s still …
