To me mass complaining and rabid worship are two sides of the same anime fandom coin, and both show a discussional value of zero on their face. It’s all about balance and the rare chance that you can get that coin to lend end up. That is forum discussion nirvana in my opinion.

Awwwww Toeto, why so sad ;_____;
If this or that anime is so full of huge glaring plot holes, how come nobody can ever manage to point a legitimate and undisputable one out to me? :/
Or is it just that the defintion of the term plot hole has seen some degradation over the years? I’m not entirely certain yet, but I think plot hole has become one of those “I can’t define it, but I know it when I see it” affairs.
Kaioshin’s Anime Enjoyment Index = (Ability to suspend disbelief as a described by a number between 1 and 10 at the lowest and highest end of the scale respectively) + (Anime’s ability to entertain me as described by a number between 1 and 10 at the lowest and highest end of the scale respectively) + (Anime’s ability to tell a good story, have good music, good animation, good voice acting and intriguing well executed themes described as a number between 1 and 10 at the lowest and highest end of the scale respectively x 1.5) – (Time spent discussing said anime on forums in minutes per week where the discussion is informative and fun - when it is irritating) - (Time spent reading about said anime on blogs where the post is a purely bashing one with no room for meaningful commentary as expressed by a factor of time in minutes per week x 5)
If the index number is at or higher then 10 I am generally enjoying said anime on some level. If it’s higher then 25 I am really enjoying it on a multitude of levels. If it’s lower then 10 but higher then five I am feeling wishy washy towards it, but if it’s lower then 0 then I’m not enjoying it at all.

Setsuna F Seiei and Lynn Minmay, Changing The Future The Anime Way
In teasing over the events of Gundam 00 Episode 24 and discussing Macross a bit with ghostlightning I suddenly stumbled upon an interesting question that I had to ask myself. Which do I find a more unlikely event, a guy realizing his true potential and activating a system that releases a miracle particle that allows people who subconciously want to reconcile with others to have their chance to communicate on a more direct level instead of slaughtering one another, or a girl realizing her true potential and singing pop songs that allow a race of giant barbarians to experience culture and surrender instead of slaughtering the whole damn human race? Hmmmmm…I love asking myself impossible questions. :P Continue reading ‘Random Musing Of The Week (The Minmay Defence Vs. Trans-Am Burst Mode)’
Just want to talk briefly about something I’ve noticed with regard to Gundam dicussions lately, and that is what I like to call the Gundam Seed Destiny Test. What is the Gundam Seed Destiny Test? Well at the moment it’s that tendency of people to try and cross compare aspects of Gundam 00 with Seed Destiny and when finding a match to imply that said aspect is a reason that they are worried about or think that Gundam 00 will disappoint them or has disappointed them.

Katsuki was unable to tell properly to Misae about Igaarashi and various worries ensue. However, Misae will stay strong and despite how awkward both of them were interacting at first, Katsuki and Misae will share a bond that even reality would fail to sever.
The new Gene case happened and this time, a very familiar phrase is present right in the crime scene, haunting Takumi in the process. Cornered everywhere, Taku will try to find salvation in a sword, but he will actually find someone more effective than that.
And after a long hiatus and somewhat of a failed 7th video (which I didn’t post about because it really wasn’t that good even though the BGM used, Libra me, is easily my favorite track from the OST…shame). But with the 8th video I think all hard feelings are made up as they definitely did save the BEST for LAST ~ note the word “last” as it seems like this is the last video from this amusing little project but also one which holds most meaning for the series. Well without further ado…
Uu! Uu! Cute girl!
And just as we are about to finish summer and bid goodbye to those lovely, sunny rays (for some parts of the world anyway), Autumn is here again to bring us a bucket load of 30-something new series. As usual, summaries can be read from THAT blog whilst I go and copy-pasta their images. A special guest this time round as Klash has also found time to add his opinions ^^
