Oh right. Anyway, it's in Japan. So it's inaccurate to accuse Japanese of, err, nipponwashing the title in the first place.

Err, you guys are awware Ghost in the Shell is set in Tokyo, right? Immigration from China et al is actually pretty big part of the main story in 2nd Gig. Oshii's first GitS film borrowed visually heavily from Hong Kong but there's no implication it's set in anywhere except Tokyo.

I'd say both but more XKCD itself. They're not all bad but all too often XKCD strips I see let the character of the comic author bleed through in rather ugly fashion - and I don't like what I see at all.

OK no, shoujo-ai is a made up word that americans decided to create because "herp-derp shounen-ai is a thing so shoujo-ai must be a thing too!", a literal translation has something to do with loli love, yuri is the umbrella term regardless of NSFW or not, i wish people would stop getting ...

You know you can appreciate yuri without it being sexual right? in fact unlike yaoi its more 60/40 on non-sexual to sexual in terms of content. Uhh, that comment was about wonderful flamboyant guy named Kunihiko Ikuhara. Ikuhara is many things and there's no denying he's fond of fem-fem rom...

God, no matter what the forum, all people know to spam is ANN. *sigh* There's nothing wrong with that. ANN dominates English language anime news coverage almost like monolithic public broadcasting company dominated news in USSR. There are some other decent and semi-decent anime sites like Japanator...

Opinion: YuYuYu is far better than PMMM, because it didn't have the luxury of coasting on the Urobutcher and SHAFT reputations. Urobuchi only made his reputation big time with Madoka though. Saya no Uta had its admirers among niche of the niche market aka eroge fans and Fate/Zero novels were we...

such tedious chuuni stuff as Type Moon While Tsukihime and Fate (especially latter) have their chuuni characteristics - though I'd never dream of calling either tedious - this isn't at all true of Kara no Kyoukai. Have you ever checked it out? Also, Madoka says she 'wishes she c...

Queen's Blade would be an absolutely fantastic sword and sorcery fantasy anime if it did away with the utterly ludicrous "fanservice". That's like saying battle shonen series X would be good without all the action. Perhaps sensible in some sense but if you eliminate the reason the...
