Re: AP 626 - Rivals

The first pair of rivals in Anime that came to mind for me is the semi-rivalry between Rintaro Okabe and Kurisu Makise in Steins;Gate . They are each very opinionated and intimidated by each other in the beginning, but they end up working together and eventually respecting one another, but still the...

Re: AP 623 - Loli Day

Loli characters usually cause me to cringe, particualrly in an anime where the art style is more realistic. And when there's the seemingly obigatory sexual overtones, it always flirts too close to the p.e.d.o. taboo, which is a no-go. But that is not to say I dislike all characters who qualify as be...

Re: AP 621 - Otaku

Otaku is not a favorable term among most native citizens in Japan, at least with regards the mainstream, "normie" or "polite" part of its culture. In fact, like nerds or geeks or other counter-culture subgroups in a given society, they are frowned upon. But then again, there's nothing wrong with a p...

Re: AP 620 - How You Watch?

Interesting coincidence that I was just now mentioning in the "Live Listeners " channel about trying some new features of Apple's latest tvOS update, when this forum topic opened. That's because I use an AppleTV to manage our family's streaming services -- which is how we view most Anime, streamed o...

Re: AP 619 - Funny People

This is a tough topic to come up with an answer for. I usually do not like true comic relief characters, particularly when they are inserted into more serious stories for the sole purpose of being "funny". In fact those characters tend to annoy me more than anything else. Of course, when the story i...

Re: AP 618 - Fans

As far as the survey goes, I chose Reviews, since it is the core of the show, but I like all of the segments pretty evenly. With regards to the topic itself, I tend to buy merchandise, I'd guess. I have a "Laughing Man" decal on the back of my vehicle, for example. Subtle,and only insiders get the r...

Re: AP 617 - Gateway Drug

As a good parent and Animation fan, I felt it my duty to bring up my children with an appreciation for the artform, including Anime. I think the first anime I started them on was Digimon, but they don't seem to think that counts. So, if I had to guess, it was likely Full Metal Alchemist https://prox...

Re: AP 616 - Short Shows

There are only a couple of anime shorts that I have watched to the very end of their runs. Most of them are adaptions of 4-coma manga strips, and I can only recall a couple of them. (1) Danna ga Nani o Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken ( I Can't Understand What My Husband Is Saying ) was a pretty enjoyable o...

Re: AP 615 - In Another World with _______

In Another World with My Ban Hammer.

With as many Isekai based on RPG games becoming reality, I would like the god-like ability to deal with any opponent like a MMO moderator.
*Boom* you're outta' here!

The following season could be "In Another World with My God Mode".
