Oh my God, this is hideous. One more reason to hate ADV.

I don't mind ads, but Jesus, people.

Well I was in the middle of reading the site when this turned on. Surprise isn't quite the word for what happened when I clicked and this popped up (more like blinded Shocked ) Laughing.

No worries. It's a joke.

It is a joke, right? Shocked

Okay, this is nothing short of godawful.

I was interested in giving the series a try anyway, and I still might, but OMFGBBQ this is just a wee bit extreme of an advertizing gig. ADV must've paid you guys bank for this.

I may end up having to add AnimeNewsNetwork.com to the "download no images" list in my browser during this week.

If you really dislike it you can set your skin to the default skin, or any other skin.

We expressly left that option open for people who don't like fuccons.

On the upside, I guess it's...a good plan... I mean. I never heard of the Fuccons before this. Not that I have any desire to watch it AFTER This- it's just not my type of thing- but hey, I've heard of it now...

Right now the whole site is red and yellow. I'm all for ads, but to change the entire site is just really weird and distracting to look at. I think we should really just stick with banners.

Can and will; thank you for that option.

I was worried some people would think that way.

There's a couple reasons I don't feel that we're "selling out". For starters, because of this ANN will not be reviewing Fuccons. It's just too risky that peopel would htink that the promotion would influence the review.

Secondly, other than the above mentionned fact, it won't affect content at all. It's just a binch of visual changes. It's not like we're posting a bunch of article on why Fuccons is great.

And lastly, anything that helps ANN hire more staff and get more done is a good thing IMHO. No one is getting rich off this site, pretty much every penny it makes goes back into it.

Not everybody, including myself, knows how to change that.

Seriously, the family on the front is creeping me out o_o

Wait, I think I saw this up on Anime-on-demand...

I feel the need to check it out now...

so it's about an American family in Japan?

There's a reason for it. Trust me, Fuccon's is not that well known, but honestly, I find low budget humor both scary and...well halarious Wink. Then again, that's just me.

Out of curiosity, will there be a "Not an anime but related" entry for this?

Click on skins and then click on the skin you want to change to.

The feature has been there for 2.5 years now.

I wonder if the poll about advertisement had anything to do with this?
