Do you want anime to become Mainstream?

During this week i watch Gigguk Video about anime becoming mainstream

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ryzAJqGDz40

Near the end of the vid he asked a question “Do you want anime to become Mainstream?”

Here is my answer-NO

No for the simple fact that  i see the anime as a gated community a little slice of heaven on earth that only those who have the golden willy wonka ticket that  can gain access to it. Anime Has been my vice since i was 9 it help me when i was in middle school going to high school and all through out high school and during the three years of college i  did. Anime is the cure for my depression when i am sad. when i am feeling lonely  i put on anime, when my friends are unreliable i put on anime. ANIME REALLY SAVED MY LIFE.(that and a bunch of other things) But it was and is anime that is keeping me alive. If it was to go mainstream the sentimental value it holds to not only me but to other people  will be  tarnished and almost be made a mockery of.  corporation will try their best to add what  they think the western audience want to see and  granted we might get lucky and get a IGPX or a Afro Samuri but we are more than likely to end up with shitty water down stuff.

If it was to go Mainstream we could see a boom in the anime industry BUT it wlll be a quantity over quality situation.   The Quantity being anime being made for the masses who do not care about it or are just getting into it just because  its “New” “Cool” or the “It” thing at the moment where as true authentic anime fans who care about quality anime shows will be forced to the way side and some might even be turn off anime forever if it does go mainsteam.

If you look at it it’s a loosing situation.

What do you guys think Do you think anime should become mainstream?

Free Episode 7 Impressions

What the fuck? ok now they really can’t deny the sexual tension between the characters when ITS FUCKING OBVIOUS!! This episode  was so um gay. Including the Rin dream sequence which was suppose to be sad but ended up to being a sexual innuendo on how he want to beat haru in a swimming race or fuck him in the water  i really don’t give a shit. The only thing i got from that dream was his dad was the fisherman who died and  who makoto knew and seen  when he was little. Let get on to the grey hair dude who shares a room with Rin  he so wants to be butt buddies with Rin to the point it got a bit creepy. Fast forward to the relay  Rin Vs Haru  Haru looses the Free style race and Rin wins at after he wins he tell Haru that “he will never race him again EVER!!”  Some how this mentally breaks Haru. This whole episode was just too funny and they wonder why people makes fun of this show. I mean i can look past the manservice but when you are forcing subtle shonen ai down are throats its kinda hard not for people to call the show “Gay”

Last review i did i wrote 

“as far as i can tell im still waiting for that beach episode where they are just “practicing” swimming and not dicking around.”

 

and what happen? BEACH EPISODE!

Only thing interesting that happen was near the end which we have to wait till next week for and that was (spoiler) rin getting caugh swimming in the rain storm and is drowning and makoto has to save him.

 

Gatchaman Crown First Impression

Three episode in and i still do not know what the fuck is going on. Seriously what the fuck is going on in this show?!

The main cast consist of:

A girl who is fucking retarded and might have a slight obsession with books and paper.

A anal retentive twat who i can predict by mid series will fall in love with set retard.

A typical Sterotype gay male with purple hair and yellow lipstick.

A mute who when not lounging around in a two piece bikini is watering plants and saying “im dreamy”  in response to what somebody had said to her

A smoking badass who might become relevant later in the series or might die later in the series(he seem less important to me that the other two)

and i want to say a girl i honestly think this is a girl but i could be wrong it might be a cross dressing boy who apprently runs the biggest site “X”

and a FUCKING PANDA. A FUCKING PANDA!

I really don’t know what is happening because the first two episode had me  interested and had me thinking that it was going to be about kids who turn into mecha robots who fights  these monster call “MESS” it wasn’t till episode 3 where they just through this shit down the toilet and five minuets in after retard befriends one of the “Mess” at the end of episode two   the group have a discussion and basally decided that fighting them was a complete fucking waste of time!

My whole problem with the series so far is that is trying to be like Tiger &Bunny in some ways not only that is just.. WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON?!
