You totally disappeared from internet! I hope everything is fine with you.

So...I decided to go back to AN. On a temp basis anyway.

I won't be going back to the SD boards but if certain people start then I really will leave for good.

It's no problem. I hope you'll find AN to be enjoyable again after your break. After all, who's going to hate on Aniplex with me? :P

I still can't believe that Bernard and Haruhi are mods. Who the heck thought that was a good idea? They'd both probably be banned if they were normal members, but you never know since AN doesn't seem to like to enforce rules anyway. I know you thought he was funny, but look at how long it took for Clayton to be banned.

Hey, I heard you're leaving AN. Is that true?

I heard about the whole Serious Discussion stuff. I wish I could say that I was surprised to find out certain mods are horrible people, but I'm really not considering who they are. It sucks that they're chasing people off of AN.

Actually, I kind of doubt my being LT is that big of a revelation anyway. As I've said before, a lot of people already figured it out.

Hey there, Arch! Thanks for writing. I'm really saddened by what's going on at AN. The mods pretty much cut the throat of our small and diminishing community with that Serious Discussion forum which they HAD to have known would be toxic and would drive away members. That just doesn't make any sense, and I said as much on the General Discussion thread. Thanks for the info about Taleen, much appreciated.

One Punch Man is definitely worth the time! It's a pretty funny take on shonen and its tropes. Saitama and Genos are awesome


I really don't think I'll come back to AN unless certain people leave. The SD&D board was the worst thing ever and I'm sorry I ever agreed to it. It sucks, because I really did make some good friends on there...but for my own sanity and at the risk of sounding like Kenny and annoying everyone else even more, I'd rather just leave altogether.

Oh well. It was time for me to retire from there anyway

Certain people ruined it for good for me.

Oh, I saw your review of Spirited Away. That is also very interesting that you saw it that way. It was the first anime I watched, and so I only noticed what was extremely different from Disney, whereas it seems you noticed what was similar. I was completely floored by that movie, I had never seen anything like it. But it certainly does have a little bit of a childish feel: it is a children's movie, Miyazaki himself said it was for 10-year-olds. But I think that kids movies and books can sometimes be a little more mature than adult movies sometimes.

Hi, I know you wrote your review of Grave of the Fireflies a long time ago, but I just now read it and I wanted to comment. I consider myself a huge fan of Studio Ghibli because I love all of their movies except two (The Cat Returns and Porco Rosso). However, you make a lot of valid points. Studio Ghibli does have some messages that are shoved down your throat, and I usually just overlook them because I enjoy the rest of the movie so much. One of those themes is environmentalism in Princess Mononoke. I looked passed it and enjoyed the parts of the movie I liked, but really, it is very heavy-handed. I thought Pom Poko handled that issue better. Although Grave of the Fireflies is an Isao Takahata film and you disliked that one, you may try Pom Poko and My Neighbors the Yamadas (i.e., you may like the Ghibli films that most Ghibli fans don't enjoy as much). Anyway, it was interesting to hear from someone who wasn't crazy about Studio Ghibli. It would be interesting to hear your thoughts of Nausicaa and some of the others. I also highly recommend one of Ghibli's realistic movies, From Up On Poppy Hill.

Nevermind. Seems AN's back online right now.

Has going to the Animenation site redirecting you to some completely different website? It suddenly started doing that with me about an hour ago. I thought I'd solved the problem but now I can't access it at all.

It's really UC Purists that hate it I noticed.

It's pretty damn good so far! Wile I'm still not sold on Kamille as a character, I really enjoy the secondary cast like Emma, Quattro etc.

The animation also really impresses me, definitely ahead of its time for 1987. The attention to detail is great and I'm enjoying some of the battles.

So yeah good so far, I'll have to watch more of the series ofc and I'll see how much of my opinion will change by then.

Nice review on 00 Gundam. It's nice to see someone else who thinks its the best Gundam series.
