@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.

    Well, we in America do have some of those assholes who clear the whole shelf of a store-exclusive Amiibo to sell them at insane prices on eBay. Did Japan have similar incidents of that?

  • Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir Bewitchingly Beautiful:
    So her character trailer just came out, huh? How long until that dipshit Schreier writes an article forcing Kamitani to apologize for his character designs.

    You sure about that? Because I’ve been paying a LOT of attention to the Japanese side of both the Madoka and Nanoha fanbases (mainly via Pixiv, but also some NicoDouga and 2chan), and it seems to me like the dark co-stars get quite a bit more loved than the titular characters.

    At least it isn’t fucking Cure Black again (one of the only Precure I recall seeing on lists like this on more than one occasion). I swear, it feels to me like people vote for her by virtue of her being “first” and thus representing the whole franchise (Cure White, on the other hand, gets neglected, to say nothing of all the far better Cures that came afterwards; on a side note, it really sucks that Precures tend to initially come in pairs, but one is more of a main than the other just because) …

    But Kore Zombie doesn’t have mahou shoujo. It has maSou shoujo (also, one of them technically isn’t even a shoujo).
