I'm actually working for the US 2010 Census right now, so this made me day.

And I'm all like...wwwwww, why can't our census be so awesome?

Japan would be doomed! Anyone remember the part time job episode where they were counting cars in traffic?

Yeah. And with Yui's counting, Japan will be down so low. And with Ritsu's counting, Japan will be more populated than the entire continent of Asia!

This news has now got me wondering if there has ever been an anime/manga about taking a census. Confused

If there was, wouldn't the series be over within one episode though? They could easily space it out, but I am not sure.

I remember three years ago, there was an anime about a guy who rode every train in Japan. Not that interesting, but it did happen.

Moe girls+census= better results than just expecting people to send sheets in. Especially with the hard core moe fans.

Ugh, why must this god-awful show keep showing up everywhere?

I'm really starting to get sick of seeing these whore's faces.

I won't bother with debating about how good or bad K-On is, but why "whores"? Do you some have a reason for choosing to use that word or are you a kid who thinks that calling women whores makes you seem tough?

At least they eventually turn 18 though. It's still moe, but at least they age.

Though that doesn't mean the show is any better though.

4nBlue: He might have made a typo. I know I've done that in the past and almost always by accident.

I call them that because I'm sick of seeing the faces everywhere. It's like they're(metaphorically) whoring themselves out --I'm just getting really annoyed at having to see their faces constantly when I hate the show.

Well you know what? I'm sick of seeing freaking Naruto, Bleach and One Piece everywhere I go that deals with anime and i'm sick of hearing people say those shows are their favorite animes but you don't see me calling Sakura or Orihime a whore.

That still doesn't excuse you for using that word choice, especially since no one on that show acts remotely close to being a "whore".

Also,
I knew a conversation similar to this would be in the thread.

I feel if the American census had pretty anime girls on it, I'm sure many people would of actually turned it in.

Except that would leave me with no job. Cool
