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 …

    mobile, meh. But man, dat Rydia. ^^

    Yeah, they’re really shooting themselves in the foot by censoring games that would normally appeal to a fanbase of which quite a few members have at least some decent understanding of Japanese anyway. It’s made all the worse for them when said games are on region-free systems.

    This has Asakura appearing as a regular. Definitely looking forward to this. ^^

    @Anon 01:06 “Sure, they made a point. But it could have been done differently.” Indeed. As I’ve heard many people state, it could’ve worked as a unique little experiment, but it really should’ve lasted no longer than 3 episodes. Nobody asked for a short story to take up 2/3 of the entire fucking season, and for a lot of people such as myself, this is what really killed KyoAni’s credibility.

    I dunno. The majority of Orihime’s outfits may not show much skin, but they still do a great job of showing off her bodyline. I mean, it could be far worse; there are characters out there with tits about as huge as hers, but you’d be hard pressed to tell due to the clothing they wear.
