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 have no idea what Granblue Fantasy actually is, but I see nothing but great fan art on the top left on Sankaku for it, so an anime is welcome.

  • Escaflowne English Dub PV Emerges:
    Plus keep in mind it was a good story… kind of. It’ll allow a new generation to get the BD with both so different people can see it in the method they want. Those of us who can hear the nuances in the Japanese and enjoy its performance will enjoy it, but these dubs are quite good actually. As much as I liked the series overall it shit all over itself in character development, but it was good up until how they ended it. It still holds up today overall. Now that I’ve seen the fanparody …

  • Metroid Fan Remake Hit With DMCA Notice:
    Yes, if you do not defend your copyright at least in some form officially, you do have the chance to lose it. What should have been done was Nintendo backed this with support officially in a similar way to Square Enix TRIES to do with their community voting system. Not entirely hands on, but with support and helping with assets while even charging a for it a bit. There’s nothing really stopping them from working in tandem. It would allow them to shut down projects they deem unworthy of the …

    How dare you expect something so tasteful in a modern videogame. I refuse to have such interactions with such a heathen. Good day sir!
