  • In What Are You Thinking Right Now

    Should I watch Titanic or anime. :1

  • In Is it still considered anime?

    @Taro_Tanako no don't be! We all get a little passionate sometimes lol~

  • In Is it still considered anime?

    @Taro_Tanako It wasn't supposed to be a debate, I just wanted to know people's personal views on the matter haha. But I agree, you're right, it really all depends on people's own perceptions and viewpoints.

  • In Is it still considered anime?

    @xiaden trust me i completety understand the difference between manga and comics. The two are different in many ways, but it's not like they so different as a tree compared to a fish. Why I posted this is because I wanted to know people's own opinion on the matter, what they personally think. If anime, in their terms, can still be called anime even if it fits, for example, on 7 out of 10 of the requirements for anime~

    Sorry if I caused any offense!! >o<

  • In Is it still considered anime?

    @Lieutenant I don't mean to sound like I'm talking fast haha. Technically, comics and manga, are almost virtually the same, probably their cliques and origins of creation is what sets them apart essentially. But when we think of manga and comics, we still think they're different, almost an entirely different genre. I know anime comes from animation, and anime was actually inspired by american cartoons, but these days its become a class of animation on its own, like claymation for example.

    And i agree that anime is an art style and can be replecated by following the characteristics, (@CloudVariasKira ) but i feel thats where the problem lies. Why do some people still not consider, replications as real anime?

    Maybe it's just because people are too picky, I don't know :<

  • Is it still considered anime?

    It's been three years since I've been on here. But there's no better place than this site to ask a little question or two~ Okay, here's my question to you, " Would you still classify 'anime and manga' as 'anime and manga' even if it's not made in Japan?" For example, there's been a ridiculous debate that Avatar the last airbender isn't anime.Even though it shares much in common with typical anime, but because it's made for western audience, and isn't physically produced in Japan, it isn't considered anime. But, look at subbed and dubbed anime for a second. A lot of people watch dub, its anime through and through, but it's in English. But that's okay, we still watch it, we still consider it anime. But perhaps that is because we know it's originally made in Japan. So in the case, that there is a show you come across that's animated in anime style, based in japan even, has all the anime clique's, japanese names, etc. However, it's voiced in English. ("That's okay maybe its a dub"). But then you find out its actually made from an unknown studio in America for example. Would you still consider that anime? Why and why not?

  • so manga is dying?

    ok so while randomly looking around on the internet i came across this page talking about how manga is like decreasing and such. when i read the comment section i noticed people saying how manga always has like the same kind of themes and how the japanese creators are too scared(perhaps) to put out anything new. i have to say i agree. i always come across the same type of stuff with the same type of characters. your typical heroine who's the never give up type and will complete his quest and grow stronger and defeat the mastermind, blah, blah. blah. also, i found "the power of friendship" to be way too much of an overexaggerated theme. take fairy tail, xxxholic for example. don't get me wrong, i love both of those animes alot (looooove watanuki) but i mean, seriously, i've been in 8 different schools in my 15 yrs of existence and i've never once come across a true genuine friend thats caring and gives me strength to move forward in life. there's always some type of 'type' story that mangas are usually about. ninjas, swordsmen, spirit see-ing people, etc. it's like one ninja show or detective show gets popular and now theres a whole mass of ninja/detective shows. ouran host club, eden of the east, cowboy bebop, FLCL, were pretty successful because they were original. i guess when it comes down to it, its the originality, that really makes a story successful. anyway, i just thought i'd post this because i thought it'd be interesting to see what everyone else thinks about this. comment away.

  • In Pandora Hearts

    i watched the anime of pandora hearts (still haven't gotten around to reading the manga yet) and the ending, in my opinion was terrible. don't get me wrong, the storyline is great and i really enjoyed, i just hate when anime's are just cut short (like tsubasa resevoir chronicle. sniff what was wrong with making a couple more seasons?)

  • In The longevity of human life

    @Kanna i agree completely. there wouldn't be enough resources for everyone. When i first read this the first thing that popped into my mind was that this new way of reversing ageing would be expensive and only those who could afford it could buy it and the world would be kind of split up. those who live a more luxourious life and can live longer, and those who can't afford it and will live normally.

    i also love cool tech advances but i saw on a documentary once that its possible to make mars into another earth. the way we're going now with all the enviro problems i think getting there should be the main priority. i mean, i wouldn't want t end up like the people from wall-e. O.o

  • In Best/Fave Anime couples

    @NGH what show is this from? if they're both guys i'm definently watching this
