BOW BEFORE ME YE MERE MORTALS!!!

EDIT: But alas, my prideful boast has pushed both off the current page. Curse my hubris!

dtm42 gets it so right here:

Referring to PMMM's Homura Akemi I wrote:
And she suffers, so you gotta make allowance for that.


Homura could reduce her suffering by quite a lot if she chose not to fight in high heels. Her ankles must hate her.


That just might explain why she's always grimacing.

Time to continue the ikillchicken train:

In the Fate/Zero review thread, levels of complaining and flaming of the reviewer (mostly for giving an animation score of C) had become utterly ridiculous. Someone expressed their distaste for the review with:

Quote:
I agree with Illya.


to which IKC replied

yes, I concur. A child throwing a temper tantrum is a highly accurate summary of whats occurring in this thread.

Uh, ikc has a lot of very worthy quotes in here, but I confess the value of that last one escapes me. Didn't he simply agree with something somebody else posted? Am I missing something here?

eta: wait, I understand the full context now. Yeah, I'd say that one is borderline.

From the Recently, My Sister is Unusual thread:

Utsuro no Hako wrote:
Crunchyroll's plot description sounds downright passive-aggressive:

Quote:
The latest entry in the “my little sister” genre, Recently, My Sister is Unusual is based on an original manga written and illustrated by Mari Matsuzawa. As usual, the story features a younger sister named Mitsuki Kanzaki who goes to live with her step-brother Yuya Kanzaki after her mother remarries.


I can't help but read that last sentence as, "As usual you people make us spend good money on creepy shit like this. I can't believe I have to write a plot description about some sister wanting to bone her brother for the third time this year. Seriously, is McDonald's hiring?"

Utsuro no Hako nailed it. Laughing

Perhaps I am too easily impressed; nevertheless, I cannot help but commend the poster here.

From this thread which will probably die soon. Regarding the dubbing of "Date a Live", our troll friend seems to have got it into his head that:
a) ANN = 4Kids
b) 4Kids are going to dub the aforementioned show.

some troll wrote:
To whom it may concern and please let it concern someone of any kind of status in the 4kids entertainment industry.

I have recently been informed that 4kids is going to 4kids-ise (4kids-isation is a term I will be using in this comment) the Japanese anime Date-A-Live, but clearly you know that because you're on this particular thread, so let's get to the point.

Blah blah blah

My final point that I leave you with is this. Why would you promote an anime that has implications of incest towards kids?

Thanks for reading and I hope to Jesus that you change the type of anime that you 4kids-ise later on.
Sincerely scrub225


This response is perfect.

I just finished talking to Jesus and he's upset about your lack of faith in the power of incest. He is his own father after all.

Ohh, gotta buy that if it reaches Europe. Smile


The United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Austria, and Switzerland happen to be in Europe. Rejoice!

Theron: The blame for this falls on light novel writers which are increasingly becoming a primary source for anime adaptations. So who was the one who started this hideously annoying practice of making titles that are compound sentences so I can crucify him/her? And when does Japan's ever-inventive AV industry get in on this (if it hasn't already)? Just imagine: No Matter How I Look At It, It's Your Fault My Penis is Erect or I Couldn't Come on My Own, So I Got This Handy Vibrator?
(emphasis added) Crass, puerile and prurient but hilarious and, IMO re: the general point expressed here, true (when you're meting out justice, make sure you nail the punk who started that whole semicolon-title idea too).

Just when I think that the overly snarky, "ironic/self-aware" tone of the ANN articles is getting too monotonous (I still stand by my theory that ANN's executive editor has spread his "snarkiness virus" to the whole of ANN's staff lol) y'all go to new highs (or is it lows?) and post something like that quote which causes me to crack a smile despite myself. Bravo Laughing

I completely agree!

I always find it amazing when somebody accuses FoE of elitism,when it is quite possibly one of the most anti-elitists things ever.

Without a doubt, when dtm42 types with razor blades, he does so with style!
From the Anime in America: The Best (and Worst) of 2013 thread (P.10):
dtm42 wrote:
No discussion about anime in 2013 is complete without mentioning Samurai Flamenco. There surely should have been two awards for it. One award for Biggest Ever WTF Scene, the other award for Most Complete Trainwreck In Anime History.

I doubt anyone could watch the first seven episodes (with no knowledge of what was coming) and not have their jaw slam through the foundations of their house or apartment building.

Why thank you.

It really is a total trainwreck though. I have PTSD just from watching it.

From the new Vividred Operation review:

AsherFischell wrote:
Some of the reviews on this site could be about a dump the reviewer took the day before and they'd still manage to give it a B.

Got a good laugh out of that. Laughing

Personally, I like ANN reviews, but some reviewers really should improve their grading system.
