My Opinion On AnimeANIME. Where do I begin?My Opinion On Anime2 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
I have a strong distaste for the general anime. Truth be told I really hate it. Why do I hate it? You may ask because I just don't find the majority of anime entertaining. I have unfortunately wasted many hours of my life watching anime as a kid. And I enjoyed it. However I started to notice something the more I watched anime. When I was about 11 I started to go a step deeper into the anime world. I started watching anime online. However I always knew something wasn't right. Around my 12th birthday I finally realised it.
Why the fuck was I watching this shit? What did anime honestly offer me that live action TV shows or even cartoons didn't? I used to think that anime was some sort of holy form of entertainment and anyone who opposed was some sort of monstrosity that didn't deserve to live on this earth. But what makes anime so special that it so superior to all other forms of entertainment? I was first attracted to anime becaus

The Story of a WeabooWeaboo (noun)- Someone of a non-japanese ethnicity who has convinced themselves that they are japanese.The Story of a Weaboo4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
You're typical Weaboo is somewhere between ages 12-17, but can survive as a Weaboo to be as old as their mid 40's. A Weaboo is born in the body of a loser, outcaste, or someone who is just an easily manipulated tool. They are most known for their incredible ability to repel facts and reason, particularly ones that attribute to them being of an origin other than japanese. The main food sources of a typical Weaboo is Ramen noodles and Sushi, or whatever their mom cooks them for dinner. Call of a Weaboo is "ZOMG KAWAIII DESU". This call will only succeed in pointing out the characteristic of being a Weaboo. The habitat of the Weaboo is mainly local, closed in areas, such as Rooms, Closets, and Basements. The Weaboo itself will rarely leave these areas, as it would take time away from the Weaboos schedule of watching Naruto, drawing anime versions of themselves, and going online to post

Cartoons, Good or Bad?Cartoons,Cartoons, Good or Bad?7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Good or Bad?
Some people say,
Cartoons are stupid.
That they're only for little kids.
They are wrong.
Cartoons can be for everyone,
Child, teen, or adults.
Yes, some cartoons are bad,
but some are actually educational.
Cartoons are even good for adults,
Ones with or without children.
Weither it's bonding time with your kids,
Or kicking back and having a few laughs after a stressful day.
Cartoons are healthy for you,
Granted you don't watch too much of it.
Some adults even make a career involving cartoons,
Cartoonist , movie makers, manga writers, authors, and more.
So cartoons aren't stupid,
But really it's a good thing.
But it's your choice in the end,
Are they stupidd or good for you.

I finally write written report since my return from BronyCon and it has nothing to do with the reporting organized details of the trip, nor responding to the dozens of messages I should be responding to. Way to go hima.
Didn't bother to re-read either.
Just wanted something to vent.
Chatting over with some friends on Skype, accidentally that irking and "hard to fathom the reason why" topic of the status of american animation today surfaced. I mean, let's go back to the 90's and the beggining of the last decade for a moment. What was on television then? How did Nickelodeon and Disney Channel operate? How did Cartoon Network start?
Nickelodeon had been around for a little while by the time Cartoon Network came to be if I recall correctly. And by 1993 it started producing original animated content. Animated content with creative settings and clever humor. Either characters we could relate to, or character
List of chickification victimsList of Chickification victimsList of chickification victims2 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
The definition of chickification, according to TV Tropes: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Chickification
Chickification is when a bad ass independent character starts becoming a stupid, co-dependant damsel character over time. Usually, the victim is female, but there are some male examples out there (I think...hmmmm....).
But anyways, chickification pisses me off more than your typical damsels. Here are a list of some of thie victims of this horrid act.
NOTE: Took Lara Croft off the list because the new Tomb Raider game is a prequel. That is excusable.
-Samus Aran (Metroid: The Other M)
-Aya Brea (Parasite Eve: The Third Birthday)
-Tifa Lockhart (especially in Advent Children. In AV, she basically fucks off and lets Cloud do most of the work)
-Elhaym "Elly" Van Houten (Xenogears)
-Jaina Proudmoor (Warcraft series)
-Alexstrasza (Warcraft series. She's a life binder, but spends most of her time being held hostage)
Hetalia sucks1. Every character is a stereotype of their country, and if that wasn't bad enough they're usually incorrect stereotypes as well. I mean if you want to represent an entire nation with an offensive stereotype atleast try and use the correct ones. No sense doing something unless you plan on doing it well.Hetalia sucks3 years ago in Comedy More Like This
2. All Hetalia is essentially, is porn for girls. We can pretend it's a satire on history or country relationships, but that's all it'd be; pretending. The only reason the countries are even there are so that the creator can easily create 20-30 diff't guys for girls to swoon over, and for the english dub a cluster***k of accents. Let's leave Satire to the real Satirists, rather than credit this man as one. Claiming you watch it for the "History" or "Satire" is like a guy claiming he reads Playboy for the articles, even if you do enjoy the articles/satire they ain't the main draw for you. If you girls enjoy your girl porn more power to you, just don't pretend it's a

AnimationAnimation is not just for kids. Regardless of how moronic americans are about the subject, animation should not by any means be restricted to either child friendly productions nor to ridiculously childish "adult" comedy. Anime has long broken off this ridiculous ghetto, but the west is still deep down in this pathetic stereotype.Animation5 years ago in Editorial More Like This
First of all, serious animated movies and series have been made. In most cases, they are child friendly, but stuff like Watership Down, The Secret of NIMH, Plague Dogs, even a few Pixar movies can be serious and enjoyable for older audiences (and in WD's and PD's case, they are even child friendly). Moral Orel is a perfect example of a good, adult series, while some series aimed at children like Avatar: The Last Aibender and Gargoyles can be entertaining to adults and have much darker themes than most animation you see on Saturday mornings.
Second, its a medium. Every medium can be either childish or serious, and as me

I'll stop being all poetic. Rant time!
Cliche #1: The henshins. Not to be confused with hentai. Hecks, no. *shiver* Henshins are those sparkly transformations, where the heroine thrusts some trinket in the air, yells something she thinks is profound, and twirls around in a flurry of sparkles as the magic strips her nekked and then her clothes materialize on her body, one piece at a time. That's not ceepy. At all. Especially since a lot of shoujo is animated by grown men. */endsarcasm* Another annoying thing about these things is the fact that they take for freaking EVER. Especially group transformations. Just once I'd love to see an anime in which all 10 "SPARKLEH KAWAII DEFENDERS!!!!one1!!!!" transform in one big, sparkly henshin of sissiness, and when the henshin ends, WHOOPS! The world has L

1. If a deviation has just been uploaded it will be put on the front page in about an hour just because the deviant has more than 100 watchers and the deviation has lot of views ..doesn't matter if it's good or not the deviant's just famous
2. If a famous deviant requests a critique on his deviation it's bound to get a good critique since the deviant is famous and people will give a good review even if it sucks!
3. When a normal deviant becomes famous he starts to think too much of himself and thinks that since he's famous he shouldn't bother to reply...it's true I've seen famous deviants often never reply to you .they're pretty damn arrogant
4. For some reason drawings done completely by hand, are never as appreciated as drawings that are done on Photoshop or other Traditional Media

This happens all the time on YouTube. I am watching videos about Minecraft when I look at the comments and realize that there's a Hetalia roleplay going on in the comments. Guess what? If I am watching a video about Minecraft, I DO NOT WANT TO SEE YOUR SMUTTY ROLEPLAY GOING ON IN THE COMMENTS. If you want to see how bad the fandom can get, just look up, "The National Anthem of Prussia" on Youtube.
Also stop fighting over every little thing, if someone tells you to stop commenting on a video that isn't about Hetalia, STOP. STOP ACTING BUTTHURT AND JUST MOVE ON WIT
