I absolutely love the panda picture. The world needs more pandas.

Kudos to posting your picture too. For too long, I just imagined you as that guy on your banner for some reason.

And the rant really made me smile. I like it when people approach mundane topics from a satirically logical perspective.

I imagined him to be old witth glasses.
Since he worked for ANN for an amount of time, I thought he'd look more "experienced" (therefore old)

For the Flake:
Awesome answer; the best show is Digimon, Bitch!

I wonder if Digimon Bitch is licensed yet.

I used that image as my forums icon for a while as well, but I don't think your forums icon is supposed to be what you look like. If that's true, then Anime on DVD's userbase is approximately 98 percent female. .


spoiler[Shh!! Don't let the peasants know! ]

We are all Hot, Yuri Mamas on AoD, oh yeah!


Despite being in a bad mood, there was only a smattering of sarcasm this week.

I, also, seem to have this unshakable association in my brain that tells me Answerman = Howl.
I should photoshop your picture into Howl. Anime hyper

Erm... the rant sounded really overdone and... pretentious? Yes.

EDIT: Oh yeah, and the flake is totaly correct. Very Happy

I didn't think you were in a bad mood at all Zac! You were (mostly) quite pleasant, actually. For you. Wink
I didn't realize I was older than you. But otherwise I imagined you to look pretty much exactly like your photo. Frighteningly enough. Very Happy

I empathize completely with the rant, and completely agree that anime fans spend WAY too much time arguing instead of enjoying the shows we profess to love. Smile

Of course, having said that, the answer to his question is simple: Evangelion vs RahXephon? Escaflowne. *smirk* ;- )

I'm 27. That photo's about a year old or so.

Actually, the correct answer to that question is "Giant Robo."

I thank you for the high praise! Going squarely by the power contained within the episode's title, I would say one of the greatest episodes we've done would have to be this one. Title-wise, this masterpiece might be one of the finest Dave and Joel have crafted, though I do believe this is their personal favorite.

Really though, something tells me that if I had to choose one episode that I'd want people to actually take my advice on regarding content, it'd be Show 50. I think I'd better follow up Show 43's review of Ringing Bell with Sea Prince and the Fire Child soon, though. I've been giving assurances that one or both of those shall be the subjects of future Buried Treasure articles!

Indeed this week's was absolutely funny. I wish to congradgulate you on a job well done for making me waste my time when I should be sleeping or studying. I really enjoyed it.

Indeed I see you as Howl and Tony K. as Cpt. Bravo for some apparently reason. I don't know why but it's probably really weird.

That's...that's not what I was expecting.
I guess I pictured you looking completly different. Lol we should all post pics of ourselves.

I love how that person says they're a fighter. They could well be but I thought: Fighter of love and justice SAILOR MOON

You got death threats about the Nympht thing? Wow, that's...scary.

Digimon bitch! He'd better e talking about the frist 2-3 seasons...up tio the Tammers. That one was lame. But then it got good again with the Digi Evolution! So...it's complicated.

The panda makes me feel cold.

And as for the rant sorry Justin but everyone has opposing viewpoints on everything. Two people can agree on something but theres always going to be someone there who doesn't even if its a question like: "Is Earth spelled with an E in the front." Most would say yes but you'll have someone who disagrees.

like a falling paperweight crushing your toe even though its no where near your foot- its just the way things go.

Never pictured you as Howl Rolling Eyes but I did picture you as a 40-something at least. Which speaks volumes for your maturity and knowledgeability. Smile

I'm 29 Smile But look 17. Sigh. Mr. Green

Like everyone else, I just assumed you were much older because of your long involvement with the site and attitude in general, and I don't think that's a bad thing. I still respect you a lot, and I think it was brave of you to reveal yourself to all the 'haters' out there. If nothing else it proves your sense of humour can be extended towards yourself as well as others. *grins*

BTW is that panda from Cute Overload? I loved their panda-progression today. Smile

You're not weird at all! There's an entire forum thread dedicated to this very condition. Very Happy
