This is what people have predicted so far:

(starting from the end)


I predict that The U.S. Version of DBZ will be more popular
as FUNi releases more Uncut tapes. DBZ will rule! (The
Burger King Promotion proves this)

and episodes UNCUT so that all DRAGONBALLZ fans will be
able to view the characters for their true worth. Victory

anime otaku are lucky anime and pocky will one day rule the
world! and maybe some day the US will bring some original
anime over instead of doing stuff to all anime like they
did to Sailor Moon. oh and i believe Zelgadis and Lina from
slayers should get together. ^_^ i can dream right?

i predict funimation will finally realize that the
Dragon Ball Z series needs to be realeased uncut with
japanese dialogue and english subtitles on dvd. I hope
funimation realizes that they could be making a lot more
money by doing this. If fumimation does do this then they
should rerelease the first batch of episodes that were
ruined. And if funimation doesn't do this then i guess
they suck. And if no one does this then i will have to do
it myselp and put funimation out of business!

The decent job of dubbing that Pioneer did on the Sailor Moon
features will force DiC (aka, Do it Cheap, Dub it Crappy) to
do a better job on the Sailor Moon S series, which is going
to be aired on the Cartoon Network.

Philippines - Saturday, March 18, 2000 at 20:22:18 (MST)
you are ALL idiots.

1. Get this now, stupid people out there. SAILOR MOON SUCKs
DICK. Anyone who can stand the dub should be declared
legally insane and placed in a small padded room away from
ALL ANIME before they contaminate it with their vile
intrests!

2. On that note, Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon is vastly
underratted due to the shitty dub produced by that *cough
cough* (lets not go there) company DiC. Lets say it
together, children, Sailor Moon is not Sailor Moon. Tsukino
Usagi is not Serena. Luna is not a fifety year old bitch,
she is a cat who can still fall in love. I will always love
my BSSM, even if people continue to give is a bad name and
I have moved on to better animes.

3. On to happier things. The world shall end on May 11th,
2000, following my birthday and the release of the third
Tenchi OVA (which also has a crappy dubbing job [what else
is new] but will answer all questions about Sasami's dreams
and Tokimi-sama.)

4. Tenchi in Love 2 shall be renamed "A beautiful Life" and
the real Tenchi 3 movie will be about Tenchi figureing out
some wa y to save his mom. (GOD, Achika is the cutest
character!)

5. Tenchis actions during the first OVA series will be
buried under radioactive material. Look, I love the show,
but the kid needs some guts, not to mension some sex appeal.

6. The eva movies will be released.

7. Ranma ½ will suddenly dissaper, it will be announced
that it was a gag, and a new Ranma ½ will come out that
actually stays true to the manga.

8. The aforemensioned manga will be transilated faster.

9. Whoever draws the Tenchi manga should be buried under
some more radioactive material.

10. The BSSMStars manga will be released, and it will be
true to the names, plot and words.

11. Tenchi The Movie 4: Midwinter's day (Son of light) will
be released, fetureing Mayuka and Achika

12. People will quit putting extra "u"s after "o"s in
names. Ryoko, not Ryouko, Ryoga not Ryouga, Ukyo not Ukyou,
Tenchi Muyo! not Tenchi Muyou, ect.

13. I will go to an anime convension wearing a chinese
Chairman Mao outfit like Ranma wears with my hair in a
braid and red.

Flare me. I dare ya.

1.That people will realize that the orginal BSSM IS better
than the dubbed Sailor Moon crap!!!!
2.I WILL BURN ANYTHING DOING WITH DIC!(BSSM purists welcome
to join!)
3. POKEMON WILL BE A FAD!!!
4.I WILL LEARN JAPANESE!!!!
5. Pioneer will subtitle the episodes Dic lost the rights
too!(Yep, it's true)
6. I will experience other types of manga and anime.
7. I will learn to draw better.
8. My boyfriend will stop thinking Sailor Moon is a
slut.(Though he says he thinks she is pretty in the manga)
9. I will stop rambling on!

P.S. (Sorry, i lied)BSSM forever!!!!!

Forgot a few things. (These propably won't happen, but 1 can
hope!)
1. Luna will stop being so stuck up. Love ya Luna, but ease
of Bunny!
2. Rini will GROW UP and act her age. She will also loose
the crush on her father. Rini, that's GROSS!
3. The outer planet Sailor Scouts will stop being stuck up
about them being "best." (Except Pluto, of course. She
rocks!!! And she isn't stuck up.)
4. Ash (of Pokémon) will get a brain.
5. Misty will stop being mean to Ash and stop being afraid
of bug Pokémon. What ever happene to Tomboys? I was playing
with tarantulas before I was even Misty's age, an I still
do!
5. The Charizard bit will stop. Charizard, I've got
something to tell U. Quite frying Ash and listen to him 4 a
change. I know he's pretty dense (to put it mildly), but he
did rescue U when you were Charmander & your tail flame
almost went out!
6. I will be able to watch more anime.
7. I will think of more things to say in the middle of the
night and will have to wait 'till morning!

Moon Child (Usagi)
USA - Monday, February 21, 2000 at 19:32:38 (MST)
Redictions:
1. That anime will take over the WORLD!!!
2. I WILL LEARN JAPANESE!!! (I just love the Japanese
language. I love watching anime in Japanese so long as there
are subtitles so I can understand what they R saying! LOL)
3. I will then go to Japan to see anime in Japanese.
4. I will buy entire collections of anime in BOTH Japanese
and English.
5. Anime will live on 4ever!!!

Oh, by the way. I HAPPEN TO LIKE POKEMON AND SAILOR MOON AND
I'M PROUD OF IT! Doesn't stop me from loving other anime
though! *_* ^_^

Ya, I know I've been YELLING, but who (in their right minds)
doesn't YELL in favor of ANIME??? ^_^ *_*

Toronto, ON Canada - Tuesday, January 11, 2000 at 20:36:59 (MST)
Two well-to-do otakus in an American high school will enter
their campus armed with rifles and ruthlessly kill the
"ignorant rednecks" who know nothing about the Sacred Art
Form, anime.

Due to constant raving and ranting from otakus on BOTH sides
of the Pacific, the Japanese government will become
convinced that the country is indeed mentally, culturally
and technologically superior to the USA, thus causing them
to bomb Pearl Harbor again. Just for the heck of it.

The continuing influx of American anime freaks who want to
move to Japan will cause mass overpopulation in the land of
the rising sun. As a last resort, the Japanese will be
forced to randomly shoot down incoming American aircraft.

Somewhere, someone is planning a mass act of arson on the
Disney studios.

Somebody will finally give Hideki Anno his Prozac
medication.

In the streets of Los Angeles, an unsuspecting Roy Disney
will be shot by an otaku who is "punishing him for his --
and his brother's -- crimes against animation."

Sick of all the bootlegging by SonMay and EverAnime, anime
fans everywhere beg the USA to launch nuclear missiles
against Taiwan. The Americans are reluctant to do so, but
when some otaku/hacker breaks into the Pentagon's missile
launching system, he launches missles against Tijuana.
Whoops.

DiC releases the English dub of Sailor Moon S. The
apocalypse is upon us.

After reading this list, I've got a hope, not a prediction
Perhaps all those people writting in about Pokémon, and
Sailor Moon and how they suck will finally get thier heads
outta their asses and realize that those shows are anime
too! They many not like it, but hey Deal with it!
Those shows will never be as good as Evangelion, but then
few things are. And for those who bash Enagelion, please
check straight into a mental home. Maybe those arguing on
this list will finally realize, we're all Otaku and as suck
we here cause we love anime! Why are we arguing over petty
things like Pokémon? I have my own feeling about Pokémon,
while it isn't the greatest it is opening the door for
anime in the States. So sit, back chill out and relax!
and if any one has a problem or agrees with what I said
drop me an e-mail!

Berkeley, CA USA - Monday, January 03, 2000 at 01:08:32 (MST)
Okay,so it's no longer 1999,it's 2000(well observed)
but,what the hell,here's my predictions:

1)As a result of the millennium bug,a japanese nuclear
reactor will create a bizarre new Kaiju:Half 50 foot
man,half roast chicken.It will crush Tokyo and all it's
Pokémon Centers before stopping in Akibhara to try out some
of Japan's kick-ass new arcade games.The world's military
powers will come together and battle it to the death using
mecha of colossal proportions.These mecha will be armed
with new technological AT Fields and a few select children
(hopefully myself included)will pilot it.Unfortunately it's
destruction will cause the end of the world as we know it
leaving 2 people left to start up the human race
again.Sound familiar?

2)Sega will go MEGA-BANKRUPT after they rename Sonic the
Hedgehog to Sonic the Monkey of Death.He will feature in
many hentai games and Dr.Robotnik will be armed with
tentacles.Naturally,many concerned mothers will take Sega
to court.

3)There will be a Sailor Moon live-action film.

4)And yes,it will suck!

5)Pikachu will be revealed as a satanic creature described
in the bible.

6)With the release in the west of the films,Evangelion
fever will start up again.Just more widespread.Until August
when it is decided that the world's schools will have to
change their uniform rules to match those as seen in
Eva.Then,A new government agency will...No,I've said too
much.

7)Tokyo will be re-built to resemble the designs and ideas
of it's future in anime.There will be mass riots and
arguments over it's new name:Tokyo 2,Tokyo 3,Neo-Tokyo,Mega
Tokyo,Tokyo Plus,Super-Death Tokyo:Capital of the
world.Take your pick.

8)Anime will,of course,become the world leader in animation
and a company will buy out Disney.And no,I don't know which
one.

9)There is intelligent life out there.

10)I will get the recognition I deserve as world leader.

11)The Final Fantasy Movie will have no need for any cuts
and be readily suitable for toddlers.

12)Someday,the UK will get an anime title before the US.(I
can dream,can't I?)

13)Sakura Wars shalt ROCK THY WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!!

14)There will be a list created which will show which Anime
on TV is most liked by anime fandom.And by the sounds of
things,Pokémon and Sailor Moon won't be there.

15)ADV will become the biggest animation distribution
company in the world!

16)I will miss a number in my anime predictions.

18)See?

19)I will leave College for Japan where I shall meet a real-
life Sumire Kanzaki,I'll take all her money and blow it all
away on drinks.

20)Then,I'll realise that she's not that much of a
bitch.I'll say sorry,marry her,etc,etc.

21)I'll bore the otaku nation to death.Like I have done
now.Only on national TV.

Later.

People will continue to call each other stupid over
differing anime and video game opinions. Someone will
misinterpret the sarcastic irony of my calling those people
stupid. I will eat cheese. you will eat cheese....maybe...
The earth will get an itch, roll over, and scratch it's
belly. A lot of people will wonder why. I will organize
the great Chaos Realm, (heh heh... organize chaos?) with
Concolor, put it on a web page, and none of you will care.
I may even be insulted by that, but probably not. The soon
to be DragonRealm storyline (5 years in the
making....woooh!) will finally be compleated, and not even
Concolor will care. I will say Bob 34672 times in
sucession, lose count, and start over. I will laugh at
Rachmanniaf (sp?) when everyone else is depressed.
AND.....

there will be Squids!!! ----> § §

Perhaps companis will finally get off their collective
asses and bring the newest stuff over here faster. I also
see more stores carrying anime, perhaps even a national
chain of stores that deal only in anime. (Anime "R" Us?)
Proably not, but it's nice to dream

By the way The Eva movies WILL be released in this country
but not by ADV, by Manga Hey cheer up, theres talk of a
theatrical release for the moves.

I have been an anime fan for but a single circumnavigation of the sun, but I feel in the depths of my soul that if
one were so inclined to put pen to paper, they would first have to submerge themselves in the profound
worlds of HAYAO MIYAZAKI or drudge through the merky waters of HIDEAKI ANNO's delicate social
circumstance if they wanted to animate something even remotely reminiscent of quality animation. However, it
seems that ANIMEtors feel the need to bombard our very sensibilities with rehashed expressionism that never
held true in the first place. This may be okay in Japan where this is televised, but outside of Japan where
purchasing videos is enough to make you start selling crack to compensate for your anime fix, this is obviously
unacceptable.....and my PREDICTION is that someday you will feel as I do and put all of these imposters out of
business...........Thank You for yo

Hideaki Anno's KARESHI KANOJYO NO JIJYO will start to come out in america (thats not a prediction obviously
but fact provided everything goes as planned)...and it will sell based on the merit of his last series...people will
find out that anno's wacky style is not based on money saving techniques (im sure gainax is not hurting
financially anymore)...the majority will not like the series because of the lack of animation...it will be pushed
aside and forgoten...america will turn it's back on what i believe to be the world's most introspective filmmaker
(more so than ingmar bergman but that is just my opinion)....and a few of us will cherrish kareshi kanojyo no
jijyo for it's insight into the human experie

Nothing important is gonna happen cept KDX will start

Great confusion. Ragnaroks sit high on his perch glaring in his capricious stuper. The time is come for a great blow. Upon the strike of the new come year, the great echo of revolution/evolution will ripple through a virgin generation and the and the unsuspecting Gaia will feel the misdirected wrath of the time-old weighing of the scales. The pain is inevitable, but the suffering is optional.... for the young. The technology will surge and the terrorists will smell the ever pungent aroma of opportunity. The plexes will release their withholdings and the sudden mutation will be the start of new evolution. Our young minds are always The Future.

A prophecy for The Future

back... AND I'M GONNA CATCH THAT BASTARD WITH MY POKEBALL!!!

Demons, Beasts, Monsters, and Dragons will appear after their great hybernation in an attempt to destroy all of humankind, but those of us who watch anime and pay heed to all of the weaknesses of the Demons, Beasts, Monsters, and Dragons will destroy the evil which will come to attack us. The rest of the world will finally realize the importance of anime too late as they are being devoured by the evil that the people of Earth have created!!

But in real life. . . . I don't really care! Have fun with the Monsters hahahahahahahahaha :)

station in the world and that the show will be a big fad

they are getting their butts kicked. It should be called....

Thats the only thing they do, scream and get their butts
kicked.

What I predict for '99?...
ichi(1)Angry Christian moms will but into Disney and start
killing people for all of the porno crap the stick in their

sees that their knowledge of dubs and 'sayonara' isn't gonna
get them anywhere.

san(3) ADV will try to steal VKLL's End of Eva script.

yon(4) America will see that it doesn't cost $30 to sub 2
anime episodes, and there will be a rush on fansubs.

go(5)Kodocha's disbanded. (Check if you don't believe)

roku(6) Anno Hideaki sees an Eva dub & gets so pissed that
he catches the next plane to America and wants to know what
the fu#K they were thinking when they made that piece of
crap.

nana(7) America gets Hooked on Phonics.

hachi(8) The X movie dub WILL suck.

kiyu(9) Clinton will be found in bed w/a Nagha life size

I say that all you fools out there that say Pokémon is gay
will get fryed by a giant Pikachu....HA HA HA....and then
flatened by a giant Snorlax. And there will be more
Pokémon video games, movies, T.V. shows and more.
P.S. We will be screwed by anime companies (Ninja
Ressurection is not a sequal to Ninja Scroll).

That "Birdie the mighty" will be the sleeper hit of the
year. Even though it is not as well known as some of the
others. I predict that most people will find it unusually
appealing.

I predict that Viz will release the Steam Detectives anime
and it will become a big hit, and they will put out various
products and it'll sell so big, the manga will get moved to
their own monthly comic, and then they'll put out the movies
and the OAVs and everyone will realize how stupid they were
to say Steam Detectives sucked. IF YOU DON'T LIKE STEAM
DETECIVES YOU SUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
