While it is true that people should be left to their own personal tastes so long as they don’t interfere with others, I do think Anon 11:56 makes a point: some things tend to be overhyped because the people who like them never bothered to expand their horizons and experience stuff of arguably higher quality (or worse, some of them automatically assume that what they like is the best there is and outright refuse to give anything else a fair shot).

Of course, people can like what they like, but if a MAJORITY of people enjoy crap, and they can’t at least try to look beyond their current interests, then the industry is only going to pander to their shitty tastes. This is why Squenix milked Final Fantasy VII to death with that damnedable compilation, and thanks to the likes of Call of Duty and Halo, there’s almost no place for you in western mainstream gaming if you’re not a Michael Bay-level war fetishist. In Kugimiya’s case, her fanboys are the reason why J.C. Staff couldn’t adapt some of the light novels featuring her worth crap.

    @ Anon 11:45 I was just stating an example. Although, I did choose Mizore as my example because I find her to be the most far removed from Rie’s standard tsundere voice (at least out of the roles that I’ve heard so far), whereas with characters like Alphonse and Ikuto, it’s still somewhat easy to tell that it’s her. At any rate, they all demonstrate that the so-called “tsundere queen” can actually do something besides tsundere. In fact, much like any professional seiyuu, she’s actually landed a …

    I agree with Anon 11:00. I consider myself firmly against Kugimiya type-casting, but even I’d be willing to say that when she isn’t being type-casted, she’s actually quite good. Seriously, go watch her role in Rosario+Vampire, it’s hard to even tell that it’s her. I’d be willing to say that her standard voice is quite cute as well, but unfortunately, I can’t listen to it anymore without shitty characters like Louise and Aria coming to my mind. -_- Would be nice if I could displace such …

    Saying that like it’s a bad thing?

    There’s a certain image going around that makes me think: I’d just love to see the number of attendees that leave after Miku opens for a Justin Bieber concert. XD

  • Lady Gaga: “Hatsune Miku Will Open For Me”:
    Except this isn’t an adaptation. I’m pretty sure she’s gonna be using the same holographic model as she does everywhere else in the world, and considering the song Gaga linked, she might still be speaking/singing in Japanese. Besides, there are already American Vocaloids… in fact, there’ve always been some (ex. Leon), they just never got much attention.

    What do you mean? Jojo is in 2nd…. or is being 2nd the problem?

  • Sega Hard Girls Nets Anime:
    Yeah, I didn’t even hear about the TeraDrive before looking at those pics. Thank god for Wiki, though… it’s described as being a flop and extremely rare on the current market. Combine that with the fact that, being a glorified MegaDrive attached to a PC, it literally has no worthwhile exclusive content, and it’s no wonder the thing managed to escape my knowledge.
