  1. Ooh, Silent Voice. I haven’t watched the movie but I do own the manga and it was quite good, though they ended up focusing way more on the movie-making plot thread than I really cared for. I’d rather it had gone in a bit of a different direction, but ah well. Great story nonetheless.
    And a fun tidbit about the movie: They apparently cast a deaf voice actress for the role of Shoko in the english dub, which is a cool way to make her character more authentic.

  2. I should ammend my previous comments. ANN is super liberal, no doubt. I think they’re even more galvanized by our current president, and the supershitstorm that is tied to

    BTW, If Sankaku Complex is ever treated as a reliable news source over ANN, I’ll eat my friggin hat. If ANN are the libtards, Sankaku are the neo facists.

    OK, so let’s talk about Catherine: Full Bodied. I’m reading that what changed in the game is that a transgendered character is respected as the new name she chose, rather than her name when she was a male.

    There is also an editing out of transphobic words. OK, so I guess people want the new edition to stay “pure” or whatever, but is your game experience going to be crushed because a trans woman wasn’t called a slur? That’s what you’re missing out on? I get it, I get it: “slippery slope,” “principal of the thing”

    I don’t have that big of an issue with this. If someone creates a product, and they decide to make changes to it, they have the right to. Self censorship is not the monster than self censorship is. I don’t get the feeling that Sega was pressured or threatened to make these changes, so I’m not really concerned about these changes. Being a little more sensitive to a certain segment of the consumer base; EWW, how gross! [SARCASM]

    If you want to talk about the actual dangers of self censorship, let’s talk about the 4Kids changes to One Piece.
