List of popular anime pet peeves"Why don't you watch anime anymore?" they ask me.
Answer is simple, it seems I have lost interest for such thing because it was a complete waste of time. Or, it could be the excessive pet peeves I found.

Alice: Madness Returns vs. Sucker PunchAs most of you have probably already guessed from my profile and favourites, I am a huge fan of American McGee's Alice. The demented twist on the original source material, creepy atmosphere, excellent story, everything that I love about horror/fantasy is in this game. Recently, the sequel Alice: Madness Returns was released and I obviously loved it. It kept the same dark under(and over)tones of the first game while also adding something new, the story, while a bit confusing at times, was intriguing and added more depth to the character of Alice, and the quality and graphics VASTLY improved over the years. Naturally, it has its flaws, but what game doesn't have the little annoyances and niches? But one thing's been really erking me and while not a whole majority of people have been talking about it, I still have to talk about it.More Like This

My Top 11 Most Hated Storytelling Cliches (Ver. 2)So a couple of... years back it seems (time flies, doesn't it?) I made a Top 10 or 11 list of my most hated cliches in storytelling. Considering how our tastes evolve and change, and how much I've learned about media and storytelling in that time I thought I'd do another... more refined list. The rules are simple, in that there's only really one - each of these cliches must be (at least a large chunk of the time) an intentional choice by use of the author. I can't put in things like "Mary Sue" or "filler." Each of these types of cliches, while it doesn't exactly tempt me to do an atrocity review on it, instantly loses some goodwill with me when it comes to the story. The order here is how much they annoy me, and nothing really else. It's a personal opinion list kind of thing.More Like This

Writing Tips - Myths You Probably BelieveGirls will read books about boys or girls, but boys will only read books about boys:More Like This
False. The gender of the protagonist in children's or young adult's literature does not matter. For example, in the 90's, Goosebumps was really popular. About half of them had first-person female protagonists. This more closely ties into subject matter. Something like The Princess Diaries--written for and by females will largely be enjoyed by an exclusively female audience. Something like The Golden Compass/The Northern Lights, which has a female protagonist but has subject matter like adventure, is very accessible to both genders. If you care about having an egalitarian audience, and you know how to write well—whether or not you use a female protagonist—you will most likely succeed.
You need to revise your novel/work like 10 or 20 times until it's perfect
Honestly if you're efficient, and you pay really close attention, you only need to do it like once. (Unless
Writing Tips - The CSI EffectTime to talk about a really fun topic: the CSI effect. This is something that every writer should be aware of, and it's probably something that every person should be aware of. The bottom line is that a popular media presence grows expectations that cross over into the real world by its watchers. It's named for the show CSI, which debuted in the year 2000. In the show they use forensic evidence to figure out why criminals did that and sentence them without a reasonable doubt. It actually had an effect on society, in which people on actual juries began demanding more forensic evidence to require people being guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. And it affected criminals, trying to trip up how they thought that police or forensic teams would try to go about things. For example, in many American television shows, suicide victims frequently leave a note about why they're doing what they're doing. This lead to people in real life leaving suicide notes before they committed suicide because thatMore Like This
Miyazaki vs OtakuIn case you haven’t heard this, renowned Japanese animation icon Hayao Miyazaki was quoted as saying that the reason the anime industry is suffering is because it’s overrun with “otaku.”More Like This

Naturally, such a high profile artist such as Miyazaki coming down hard on Otaku has offended a lot of people and a bit of backlash has sprung up because of it. I’d like to try and reassure some of you that it’s not as bad as it might sound, and here’s why (please keep in mind this is from an American perspective).
“Otaku” in Japan is (or was) an offensive word, usually embodying the worse traits of obsessive basement dwelling collection completing socially inept geeks. It gained widespread negative connotations after the 1989 “Otaku Murders” carried out by Tsutomu Miyazaki (which are to
Problems with AnimeMore Like This
Anime, the distinctively Japanese variety of animation. I don't really like it, and I have quite a few problems with it. But this wasn't always the case: I used to love the anime culture, the cutesy saccharine drawings of anime girls all over Photobucket and Flickr and Deviantart that I collected religiously, the cheesy J-pop stylings of one Hatsune Miku, the total anarchy that was a regular part of Nico Nico Douga's most prominent memes. I was even a part of my college's anime club, where I found solidarity with some other resident geeks. But eventually, I stopped liking it. For one thing, the club members stopped watching anime and just played Yu-Gi-Oh, and something changed with my personality as well. And it started around the time I started watching Strike Witches, an anime about teenage girls during the World War II era who fight aliens with guns and magic and have propeller legs, and also they don't wear pants. I don't know what I was thinking either.

You Will Probably Not Become a Famous MangakaEveryone who likes anime around puberty goes through a phase where they behave irrationally and silly. When young artistic people go through this phase they sometimes dream of becoming a "mangaka." A dream that is almost impossible to fulfill. Most people grow out of it, however, some do not.More Like This
Being a comic book artist in the United States is very stressful. Putting out a monthly comic is very difficult, writing and illustrating an entire graphic novel is also very difficult. Now, Japan is considered one of the most stressful environments to work in. According to Wikipedia, the average Japanese worker is given fifteen days of paid vacation a year, but only takes seven. Being someone who works in the comic book industry means that you are working a lot of hours and very under appreciated. To become a comic book artist in Japan means that you will need to take on an apprenticeship with an already established comic book artist. You have to meet one who sees talent in you and is willing to
Writing Tips: Adult Cartoons (Part I)How I'd make a cartoon specifically for adults without shoehorning in shock value and grossout (or how to not make Mr. Pickles). This is going to be a very broad topic and I'll be speaking generally because there's just as many ways to make a cartoon for adults as there are to kids. There is no right one absolute answer, and everything does have the ability to fail if one unpredictable thing goes wrong. My opinions on adult cartoons are well-known at this point. The majority of them are 22 minutes of shock humor with some "social commentary" deliberately designed to be "edgy." So, if I were to make an adult cartoon, which would I do? Well the first hurtle is asking the question where do we begin?More Like This
