I wasn’t really sure what to expect from Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya) when I started watching it. What I saw was a poorly sung OP, a terribly acted anime, and lame production values. And I enjoyed every minute of it!

KIBA – Anime First Impressions

KIBA appears to be this Spring season’s popular shounen anime. Do the magic balls and summons put this show into the kid’s category, or does the art and plot make it something more?

Enter the Basugasubakuhatsu Naruto Blog!

Hey all,

After reading that some in the anime community are quitting their blogs, I’ve decided to find my own true calling. Writing about Naruto! That’s right, I’m sick and tired of doing previews on stupid anime about girls in space, magical harems, horny shinigami and slice of life crap. And did I mention the magical harems!? Seriously, who cares?

Everyone knows that anime is all about ninjas. Without ninjas, anime wouldn’t even be around! Ninjas rock hard, and the hardest-rocking ninja of them all is Uzumaki Naruto! He’s sooooooooo sweet! He’s got the super air ball rasengan, and is so much stronger than Sasuke!

That’s why, from today on, I’m changing my anime blog to focus solely on Naruto! That’s right, it’s the Basugasubakuhatsu Naruto Blog! From in-depth Naruto video game reviews to the latest on Naruto cosplay, it’ll be all here!

Stay tuned as I start my 5 part series on the importance of Naruto fillers.

EDIT: Okay, I think that’s enough. If you wanna see what the Basugasubakuhatsau Naruto Blog looked like, I have a screencap here:

Anime and Manga Banned in the US!?

I just found this CNN story on digg.com about the United States banning anime and manga sales! Apparently they’ve decided that ALL forms of anime and manga are pornography, not just hentai:

The Child Pornography Prevention Act of 1996 made it illegal to possess or distribute any visual depiction that “appears to be” or “conveys the impression” of a child engaging in a sexually explicit act.

The Japanese media regularly presents under-aged characters in compromising positions. Some stories are merely suggestive, while others show graphic nudity of minors.

This is utterly ridiculous. I knew that Canada and Malaysia didn’t like anime, but the United States? This is the home of free speech! Just because some porn exists in anime and manga form, it doesn’t mean all of it is! They’re creating a blanket statement on all forms of anime and manga saying they’re porn! They’re even using Negima! as an example of underaged porn!

If you live in the United States, or care about free speech rights at all, I’d suggest you call your Senator or Congress person at once! I’m calling mine at 505-555-0401!

If this really happens, I might have to shut down the ol’ anime blog…
