So much of the combat is being skipped that it's getting nonsensical.

but it feels a lot more like a shoujo than a monster of the week show for little girls.

What's the point of a cliff-hangar episode end if the preview spoils what is going to happen?

>What's the point of a cliff-hangar episode end if the preview spoils what is going to happen?

To SM's defence it's hardly the first show to do that. Me, I never watch previews so the cliffhanger wasn't lost on me... not that it mattered because I genuinely don't care much what'll happen (to begin with nothing could happen either way).

Man, such mixed feelings here. This is such a weird situation, too. I'm sure most of people who watch this are fans of the old SM. Thing is this is nothing like old SM. Whether it's like the mnaga I can't say since I'm not familiar with the source material but I bet it is. This creates a pretty amusing situation, though, as I'm sure I'm not the only person who prefered the old SoLesque version: people like SM but they don't like Takeuchi SM.

I recently got into an argument with a room full of around sixty anime fans. The topic of "how can we support shows we want" came up. People actually thought that by buying localised, translated DVDs and such, they could affect the anime market in Japan.

The statement I made was as follows: "We are not the target demographic for anime and manga. We are separated from them by half a planet, a language, an economy, and a culture." I was immediately booed and people started yelling about Space Dandy and "how the American anime industry and Japanese anime industry are becoming one entity"

I backed it up by a disclaimer that "it is okay for western animation and Japanese animation to draw inspiration from each other, but American animation will never be designed for a Japanese audience, and Japanese animation should never be designed for an American audience."

I also said it is not okay for people to think that a product of another culture should also cater to their sensibilities. I got booed at this point. People brought up social justice and said Japan sucks etc etc.

Is this an example of Western Supremacist thinking conditioned into society by media and education? Why does it always have to fucking fit your sensibilities and morals?

I really just want to fucking boot a lot of people out of anime fandom sometimes. I really do. These stupid Sarkeesian Effect shitscrapes. If you don't like it, get the fuck out. We don't want bullshit western tropes shoehorned into anime. We use anime to escape that fuckery.

So what are your thoughts? What would make people think it's okay for anime to become another bullhorn for Amerocentric bullshit? Is anime becoming, or in risk of becoming, influenced by the American market? Or is this just yet another case of group narcissism and internalised nationalism?

I find that the pink hair color of 2D anime characters usually has a strong correlation with the character being weak and overall poorly devised on nearly every level. Because of this, the character with pink hair, although not literally being shit (that would be silly), reminds me stongly of a literal piece of shit, due to the negative connotation and general unpleasantness that we associate with fecese in our society.

tl;dr i just said pink sucks (not literally)
