Cool, we need good men and women with connections to the anime industry in office. Hopefully he serves his role well.

You mean it doesn't? Nonsense. And I fully support tea taxes. I mean, taxes for the afternoon tea.

There's no such thing as a good civil servant /cynicism


Might as well have an anime in office.

Also his portrait makes him look very kawaii. Another important trait for any elected official.

He's been vice mayor for two years already, according to the first post in this thread. He's not some guy off the street who conned his way into office on the very dubious "advantage" of being related to an illustrator/animator nobody outside of anime fandom would have ever heard of. I really doubt K-ON! has any influence on his work. That's a silly thing to be concerned about.

At least have the guts to post your ignorant and unwarranted insults outside spoiler tags. And your reply makes little sense, grammatically, for what you're quoting.

It would be awesome if the cartoon portrait of him makes some cameo appearances in a couple of KyoAni's anime in the near future.

Ignorant isn't even remotely close to describing his comment. Unless you're under the mistaken impression that "ignorant" just = "dumb." In which case, you're just ignorant.

cool story bro.
It's nice to see people from the anime/manga industries having somewhat important leadership occupations. Let me practice my Japanese here. :B 堀口悠紀子さんのお父さんは八幡市の町長です。

If Yukiko made a poster for her father's election, it obviously means she supported him during that time, which i think it's so sweet. ;u;

I hope he uses his new found political power to force KyoAni to make Little Busters! happen.

Ignorant of the point Hoppy was making, as evidenced by his reply making zero sense in context (or, ignorant of grammar). By the way, resorting to youtube clips and/or image memes to make your point is one of the quickest ways to make a reply look utterly ridiculous. And you never need any help on that front as it is.

Using them doesn't make me any less right.

Also, I'ma just leave this here, since you apparently still think you know what it means:

When your entire point boils down to linking dictionary.com and interpreting words in the narrowest sense - or rather, whatever sense makes you feel better about basing your contribution on semantic nitpicking - you know something has gone terribly terribly wrong with your argument. Or more accurately, that you never had an argument at all.

Congratulations!

I hope this unknown Nichijou character appear in the BD specials.
I work in VNs. Sometimes, they have h-scenes and I go "waai~". I also like to not write at Oppai is Justice, a blog with great urls.
