Damn straight we need another season of Oofuri. The problem is that Mihashi started out as such a whiny little bitch in the series (moreso than the manga, which I didn’t think was possible) that it’s not going happen. The show settled down and Mihashi became a bit less murderable by about episode 7, but the damage was done and now we’ll never see them play at Koshien.
- AKB48 Fans Lose Minegishi Cards: “But I Spent $5,000!”:
No. A perceived innocence is important in the idol business, much like prostitution. An idol’s value is enhanced if dedicated fans think that they have a shot at being their favorite’s ‘first’

He has a point. It’s the same problem facing the entire developed world – the younger generation has to be even more productive than the previous one just to maintain the current standard of living. It’s a bigger problem in Japan because of the severely low birthrate. Hikikomori and other people who are non-productive in the economy add to the burden of a system now supporting two retired generations thanks to that high standard of living.

Nichijou’s ridiculous timeslot when it was first run (as I recall, it was about 12:30 AM or 1 AM) is what hamstrung it and cripples ratings and DVD sales.
- Top 25 Funniest Anime Ever:
This list just shows how short the memory of anime fans actually are. There’s the usual complaints of who is not on the list – AzuDai, Ranma 1/2, Urusei Yatsura… etc But for best comedy anime of the last 3-5 years, the top three are spot on. The order is the only thing left to discuss. I’d put Nichijou first, and Gintama 2nd.
