I guess that, following your point that an anime movie isn't a special medium but simply a movie done in a different way (good point, for sure), it'd be more of a matter of other anime movies being underrated as just "movies" rather than Ghibli's work being overrated a...

You don't need to watch most animes that come out in order have a better understanding of anime than somebody who's only watched Ghibli stuff. Also, watching a lot of anime, and sub-standard stuff with that, doesn't mean your taste is degrading because it doesn't automatically mean ...

I know plenty of people who can do the same and tell me what they like about Ghibli movies. My argument is that many of the people who know and appreciate Ghibli's works do not have anime knowledge outside of Ghibli's work. I know that for a fact when it comes the people I am talking about ...

2) James Wan is great at directing a diverse and inclusive ensemble cast . So into the rubbish bin it goes. 5) This isn't going to ruin Macross for you. If this'll actually be succesful it will mean there'll be no end to Harmony Gold jewgold diggery. So yes it's going to rui...

Well, you can be caned in Singapore for spitting on the street. And you can be fined in China for doing the same thing: code enforcements on public behavior aren't exactly a new thing. True enough, I didn't think about China (Singapore is in its own category in my mind so comparisons to...

This is a holdover from Mayor Giuliani's term. When he came into office, New York City was a miserable frigging city. They still had porn shops on Times Square. As part of several initiatives to clean up the city, Giuliani got really hard on code enforcement, including giving all New York City ...

Thanks for clarifications, guys. As I've never been to New York I don't have personal experience about the system there and I overreacted. I'd just read about frankly infantilizing Yes means Yes legislation passing in Connecticut * and the headline of article Squig posted made me assume ...

Xard, these rules aren't new. It's a rule of thumb: when you're on public transportation, you don't take up more than one seat. It's a dick move and it inconveniences people who might actually want that seat. To hear you talk, it sounds as if somebody taking up two seats doesn&#...

Alternatively, it's because it's written in the MTA code that you can't take up more than one seat! Simple, innit? Also, for what it's worth, that post sounds like... hmm, let me find the quote... Probably irrelevant since, uhh, "man-spread shamers" have been having countl...

I have this feeling, and I expect this to be reasonably uncontroversial, that the Golden Age of Anime is 14* (exceptions for those who weren't into the form at that age). *Also true for science fiction and rock'n'roll. Quite so. I'm just very happy I lucked out and ended up ...

In addition to Eva, Utena, and Bebop, there were also Please save my earth, Pet shop of Horrors, Escaflowne, Basara, Key the Metal Idol, Yami no Matsuei, Ranma 1/2 and even Getbackers (yes, well-done shounen comedy series can have good character writing too). I've seen almost all of tho...

And yes, I'm aware that I know way too much about 80's Euro Pop, but we all have our guilty pleasures. It's the most delicious slice of cheese. As fara s cheese goes 80's Euro Pop isn't that righteously guilty inducing cheese. Now if you said you were obsessed with 90s Eurodance...

Don't know if this is controversial or not, but I find that 90s anime - I'm talking about the ones commonly rated as being good - tend to have superior character writing when compared to even the best of what we have today. That's like what, Eva, Utena and maybe Bebop? That's far to...

The contrast between Astley's booming voice and his build is what has always amused me the most about Rickrolling. Song is pretty tasty slice of cheese for sure and that voice is rather impressive.
