Comment on Top 20 Singles of 2012: “Japanese Music = AKB48” by KingFisher:

Shitty songs and shitty list. I mean come on. THere is no real talent in the song or singing. AKB48’s only selling point is their stage presence, which I’ll admit. They work damn hard for a 3000 cd. They are more like a jack of all trades but master of none. Except their workload is 100 times greater. The sheer amount of work and the many types of jobs they deal with is amazing, aside from how well they deal with the schedule, that’s about as far as it goes.

Though I do notice though that when some members of AKB48 graduate and go solo and break away from the whole idol setup but concentrate more on the singing aspect, the song quality SOMETIMES improves. Sadly, most AKB48 graduate and disappear.

  • Ghost in the Shell Movie “Flops Dismally”:
    Not so much not caring about the original themes more like half-caring but not having the balls to go head deep. Also they adapted and mixed way too many different stories together from the GiTs franchise. Arise, Stand Alone Project and then the original anime film. Yup….they tried to respect the filim with eye candy and visual accuracy but just had no balls for the mental game, thinking that the majority of viewers might be the general public and too stupid to care about complex ordeas. Then …

  • Ghost in the Shell Movie “Flops Dismally”:
    I’m going to agree 100% with this guy. Did any of the other people commenting here watch the movie, or even watch all of Ghost in the shell franchise? The Ghost in the Shell live action was way better than Dragon Ball evolution. At least a descent amount of respect was shown to the source material. The main downer about this movie though was like what above was said, made way to stream lined. They took a bunch of different stories from Stand Alone complex, the movie, some bits and pieces from …

  • Brave Witches PV Promises More Pantsu:
    Disappointing. Their pantsu should be showing.
