If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Welcome to the Anime Corner. Eventually I'll come up with a better name for this and the segment.
Here's how this is going to work:
I have a segment to fill. While God knows I have enough old anime and manga to ramble on about, we also want a certain amount of direction and (godhelpusall) fan input. This means you get to ask questions in this thread only. During my segment, I will pick ONE question to answer. Since I'm the one who has to explain my answer to the rest of the podcast, this had better be one damn interesting question or else I'll be illuminating you all on old-school shoujo manga and anime..
That's right. Bring the good questions or the next four segments are going to be about The Rose of Versailles, SWAN, From Eroica with Love and Brother Dear Brother.
I will also be playing favorites. My views on Naruto and Bleach are well known. You can safely assume that unless I get knocked on the head and wake up from a coma with a completely different personality that I'm not gonna answer many (if any) questions about them.
In the mean time I'll be doing my best to bring to light the good stuff that many, if not most of you, have been missing.
GO MY MINIONS! QUESTION LIKE THE WIND!
I haven't written in a while and I'm not sure whether the format of the segment is the same but I had a question I wanted to ask regardless.
During times of war, American Comics were sometimes used as a medium for prowar propaghanda. My question is, In Japanese history has there ever been a time when Manga/Anime was used as a platform for political propaghanda ?
Farewell to the many "most disturbing thing I have ever seen". To the brief life of the beloved gong. To the good natured ribbing that led to the April Fool's joke that would have made Larry David look on in shock!!
Farewell and thanks
Naruto has some good characters that I wish had more "screen" time, and Kishimoto is finally making Hinata more prominent than Sakura or all the other annoying chicks. Naruto isn't BAD, nor is it GREAT. It's just good.
How do you feel about the anime/manga made by Yoshihiro Togashi?
Or more, his manga, which can get lazy after a good while. Not in the sense of "Let's kill everybody" lazy, but story and art-wise, which has happened more in Yu Yu Hakusho than Hunter x Hunter.
