@Taylor: At least “popular=good” can still be argued for the most part in regards to Akihabara’s sub-culture. Do you think the same can ever be said about American pop culture any more?

    I enjoyed AnoHana, but I will say this: any time I hear “noitaminA”, I think “pretentious, overhyped bullshit”. AnoHana was an exception (at least IMO), but nonetheless, it sickens me how people go on about these shows being the most intellectual of intellectual anime just because of what fucking block they aired on.

    The lack of Kotomi in those omake greatly concerns me. The best girl has always been lacking in exposure… hell, I didn’t even know about her prior to watching the anime (her and Yukine, though at least the latter can be excused due to being gypped out of being one of the main girls).

  • Clannad Gets Steam Release:
    Yeah, though things would go a helluva lot smoother if the mainstream sites weren’t still trying to cover their asses in spite of all that’s going on. What’s really disgusting me is that, even when a publication does cover the story, they focus on the “a woman’s being attacked for ‘personal’ matters” angle, but given the overwhelming amount of backlash in the comments of such articles, I’m hoping they can’t keep up this charade for long. Also, @Anon 20:57 You’re not familiar with the Zoe Quinn …

  • Comiket 86 Cosplay More Exposed Than Ever:
    Yeah, it’s nice to see there were a fair number of classic characters here. For a minute, I was worried this thing would be utterly dominated by KanColle, much like the doujin scene was.
