Err... in all this happiness some mistakes were made...

The Aquarian Age movie was licensed and released by Synch-point.
Also Aquarian Age is same universe, but different story than Juvenile Orion.

...I feel sort of like I've somehow fallen into the twilight zone.

At least the wannabe voice actor is actually doing the right thing and practing ACTING, instead of assuming all you need is a cool voice. Worthy of a rainbow, I think. Anime hyper

This week's edition is so happy! The world needs more kittens and rainbows. I feel so...positive. Thumbs up and high five!

Rant: Um...hm...I don't really know where it was supposed to go. And I am sure people have various reasons for watching anime. Mine is certainly not because I like women to be weak and stereotyped...

Why do nekomimi, meido, vampire girls, lolis, or any other type of cutesy anime girl appeal to today's male anime viewer so much?

Because cute things make people happy (like rainbows and kittens). And they're even better when you combine them into, say, a loli nekomimi vampire meido (yeah, I'm stretching for that one, because Hazuki isn't meido).

He's only allowed to be happy one day of the year...a magical day when the rapeblossoms bloom and ducks (and kittens!) can talk.

I like saying this line to people on the street. It's far more effective if you bug out your eyes and show them your pretty knife.

Make sure to buy the liquor at a store instead of going to a bar....you save more money and more Kitties. Very Happy This column was a nice a little change no one yelling or screaming at anyone, and pretty flowers.

Because then it would be boring.

So can we get Plastered Answerman next week?

I will never ever say anything bad ever again to another anime columnist for as long as I live... Shocked

Anyway, all this Zac-happiness is really off putting...I mean, I don't think he's gotta be an a-hole but, him being cheery like that is really freaky. Laughing

Wondered what was happening for the last couple of weeks, I didn't have time to read the forums lately... kitten was cute. Subjects were nice.

You might want to consider 100% ethanol though, you wouldn't have to spend much that way, or drink heavily. Plus the effects are quicker. And from what I just read from the previous forum I can see why you need it.
