Japan, popularity of AKB48 is more shameful.
Had several chances to compare movies in native 1080 v. 720 – and couldn’t see any difference. Unless of course I watched it from a foot distance.
SD to 720 is a noticeable quality jump, but IMO 1080 isn’t worth the disk space.
Wow. Moeblobls, now not only ultra boring, but also in ultra resolution! Rewatching now the Black Cat, in SD. Not particularly good anime, but better than most of the current HD stuff. FMP also somehow doesn’t suffer from the lack of the resolution. If they wanted to improve something, then they should think about true [...]

Do not remember anybody complaining about the graphics of the previous FF.
Probably they should have elaborated on game play instead.
Yes, that would be definitely interesting.
Then compare the results with the AniDB and ANN scores!
IMO polls are the most missing feature here.

Hu? Is that norm in Japan to leave children alone in a street?

Can’t be. New name on the list.

Pretty normal, pro-looking retouching… Literally all pro-made portraiture and such are retouched to some extent. That includes: lightening teeth, extra dots of light in eyes removal, stray hair removal, smoothing skin, removing wrinkles near mouth and under eyes. What people call “photoshopping” normally is only applied to background to remove distractions. And before people would [...]

It’s about the Asian “not losing face” thingy.
For many admitting that they have witnessed or were aware of bullying – and did nothing – would be public humiliation. So they don’t admit.
P.S. Also, admitting that they have simply witnessed something so “unclean” like that would be a spot on the reputation.

It’s just general dissatisfaction with life. It has nothing to do with Japan per se – people just need another target to blame their problems on, to vent out their frustration and anger. And the war with Japan is sufficiently recent history. That basically are the first symptoms of what many geopolitical analysts predict: collapse [...]

Wow. I haven’t expected that it would get as high as 25th.
A must watch.

#13 – the character appears to be giving a finger.
The “old geezers” simply can’t accept that new generation is different. I have seen it in Europe too. Fortunately, the old geezers here are just that: old geezers. In Japan – and I gather other countries with age-based social hierarchies (India pops up as an example) – the old farts unfortunately bear most of the [...]
> and unarmed
Police in many countries is unarmed to prevent them becoming a target of criminals, willing to steal their weapon. FYI.

> 54.3% of victims found they had nobody to turn to, with the rest favouring family (26.5%)
That about sums it up.
Family dysfunction == society dysfunction.
> Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit The books (by Nahoko Uehashi) sold well. Probably anime adaptation wasn’t up to the level. Like e.g. with the 12 Kingdoms. I started hating the anime adaptation as soon as I finished reading first book. All shite I hated in the anime wasn’t present in the book. The books [...]

> ^ With a mind like that it’s no surprise things are the way they are. That’s the Western culture of “dating” for you. Remember the times when people we gathering to party at home?

I think all the lists should introduce rank 0 and it should be automatically awarded to the NGE.
