I think it best if you just drop the argument and enjoy what you like. I dont give a flying fuck if people like what I do or not. I just happily devour anime like the life sustenance it is for me.
However I would really like it if everyone watched Millennium Actress ;)

If you weren't interested in discussing the metric beyond a face value glimpse to push an agenda, you probably shouldn't have brought it up to begin with.

I think the problem is you're reading less into the things you're trying to imply.

It really speaks to the director's talent how well he guided the atmosphere of the movie from beginning with wacky hijinks to the sombre empty city to the group readjusting to their circumstances and so on

It does need some basic knowledge of the show to appreciate some of the character's motivations but it's a really fun movie in its own right, glad i finally found the time to watch this.

Why would you do that.

I suppose that's when you go Japanese and really are much more happy than with your native culture.

A weeb meanwhile probably just wants to more easily stockpile anime stuff or whatever.

Weeaboo tends to imply a lack of self-awareness to the point where the "gaijin" fully believes in all sorts of "Japanese master race" nonsense.

See: MAL forcing Japanese titles on everything, even things which have official English titles from the original creators.

This show wasn't even on my list until someone here mentioned it's basically Scrapped Princess -- and I loved Scrapped Princess. Then I found out this show is based on the light novel created by Ichirō Sakaki, the creator of Scrapped Princess and I became super interested. And it's also by Bones as well? Whoa! So far, I love it. The fighting in episode 2 was ace. I like characters. The mythology is interesting. My only criticism right now is that the art takes a bit of getting used to.

The only other bad is this is only 12 episodes and the light novels aren't done yet.'


Also, how the hell does Sakaki have so many on-going series at the same time?

Basically, yeah. I obviously like some aspects of japanese culture, but no way in hell do I think its superior to everything else. Its a unique culture and special for providing anime, but its still just one culture of many, and there are some truly fascinating things done in other cultures of equal merit and respect.

Man, the only time I could be close to that when we have a localized title is something like Laputa because Castle in the Sky alone sounds generic and doesn't roll off the tongue like Laputa, and I just find it silly they didn't call it Laputa: Castle in the Sky in NA in the first place.

Naturally, MAL calls it Tenkuu no Shiro Laputa. I guess I should be glad it isn't Rapyuta.

Hello there fellow Scrapped Princess fan! *waves*

Yeah it's the author of Scrapped Princess, the director of Scrapped Princess, and the same animation studio that made Scrapped Princess. It's pretty cool how they managed to get the team together again to adapt a fantasy series which is basically.... about another scrapped princess. Lol.

As far as the adaptation goes, I'm not sure what the plan is, but when the Scrapped Princess anime started, the novels weren't complete either. The final two volumes came out while the anime was airing, and I think the final volume was actually released in the same month the anime concluded. I wonder if there's something similar planned here?

This is a story about Shoe Aiba. He has red hair and wears a cool red jacket, but not like, all the time.



He's got a bunch of nakama who fight these weird giant monster people, and bugs as well. Some of this nakama even look like sonic the hedghog, but with more NTR possibilities.There's also a megane with long hair who he likes.

Anyway, one day they totally fuck and everything goes to shit. It was really dark, which was surprising, because I thought it would be one of the fun anime. Anyway, then like, it's all okay, because he becomes the NECRODIVER.



The NECRODIVER is totally cool because you really get to show off your abs a lot of the time and fuck up bad guys. He's really strong and really cool.



Anyway, another part of being the NECRODIVER means you get like, these goddesses protecting you and serving as your weapons so thats sweet. But they're like, not a harem because they're all tsundairyes.



Unfortunately, after the apocalypse Shoe ends up roaming around with these two girls with short hair and they really suck. All they do is get in his way and tie him down when he could doing cool shit. They keep getting captured and falling off stuff so I think they're gonna die but then they aren't dead and it makes me sad.



Anyway there's also like, a twintails girl in the show and she's like a witch or something? I don't know. She spends a lot of time in the post-apocalypse sunbathing naked and drinking wine in swimming pools.

Anyway this is a cool show with cool music and lots of action so I'd recommend it to be people who just want a cool action show.

So you could argue that weaboos have chuuni syndrome where they believe emphatically that they are "sugoi otaku" and dress and act funny. Until they grow up and look back and realise that talking in broken romanji and thinking harem anime is the peak of civilisation was ridiculous.

Of course calling them chuuni's already kinda weaboo-ish in itself so there's some kind of meta thing there.

(Damn Kyoani for bringing that word into public usage)
