Being that I watch anime shows and about every other anime journal happens to be the same generic boring likings to certain fetishes from high thigh stockings to lolis and moe characters I am gonna do something different from those.
Aside from watching cartoons since I was a little kid, anime shows gained interest in me since I started watching Naruto. First, I didn’t consider Pocket Monsters, Mega Man or Dragonball Z anime because I was a stupid kid back then when TV aired lame English voice actors.
I wouldn’t consider Japanese animation top notch because there are times when studios have to cut the budget and go for half ass animations that are more frightening than I imagine. Sometimes the studios fix these errors for their DVDs.
Apart from my own personal tastes for certain anime shows, there has been a substantial amount of issues with anime shows. From fansubs, hardcore otakus/weeaboos and licensing shows, to adaptations, moe and subs vs. dubs.
To start off, Clannad and most of Jun Maeda’s works is about as interesting as watching paint dry and then peeling off. His triforce masterpiece Kanon, Air and Clannad are what his fans praise as great works. They all started as visual novels which is a cross of choose your adventure novels and adventure games. Not much as a game but more as a novel. I’ve played Clannad Visual Novel for a good 7 hours and I wanted my 7 hours of my life back.
And there is word that due to backlash from Megaupload, other file sharing sites ceased file sharing thanks to the Department of Justice and others for breaking Copyright laws. Torrenting anime is your best alternative but regardless, you will be tracked by your IP address. IRC? Maybe.
More on this when I finally get my thoughts together.
