Once upon a time, I only thought the radical anti-industry segment was the only group to come up with really stupid arguments. And don’t get me wrong, but they’ve produced some doozies. My favorite is the, “Fansubs should be protected by the First Amendment” argument. But there have been a whole laundry list of them […]Read More In My View: Why are the Anti-fansub people making my head hurt?
So I picked up this little gem off of the SciFi Wire (the news service for the SciFi channel) that Leonardo DiCaprio might be teaming up with Warner Brothers to produce a two-part Akira movie. Somehow the thought of DiCaprio being involved just invokes images of him yelling “Tetsuo!” Not that it’s really going to […]Read More From King of the World to Kaneda
(This is my slightly less informed opinion based on this post and these comments.) Ahhh… Bandai Visual, you crazy, crazy company. To be fair, I haven’t really spent a whole lot of time thinking about Bandai Visual. True tears and Shigofumi haven’t really been on my radar much.

Even the twist wasn’t really […]Read More In My View: A Case for Koi Kaze
So is it me or is this show a play on Arthurian myth? With Lelouch as Mordred, CC as Morgan Le Fay against Arthur (Euphie) and Lancelot (Suzaku)?Read More Just a thought on Code Geass
Claymore: So I finished up this series the other day and after a lackluster first four episodes, all I have to say is: AWESOME. Seriously, this isn’t a show that does anything really all that novel. It’s got a pretty classic shounen fighting show format. The characters meet badass monster. Badass monster powers up. Characters […]Read More Impressions: On a bunch more stuff
