China Banned 38 Anime’s With More To Be Added!

Published June 10, 2015 by Shay Taree

alright so I’m sure that everyone has read this crazy news of China banning 38 anime titles from being seen and distributed. Some the titles include ones that many of us have watched and loved such as Attack On Titan, Death Note, High School Of The Dead, and Black Butler.

  
Now the reason behind this ban is because many of the anime show graphic violence, dark themes, and in many fighting against authority. It’s seems China feels like watching shows like these will make their citizens want to do these things. Sorry but I think that’s kind of stupid and I don’t agree with this kind of policeing (?) when it comes to forms of entertainment or expression of art. 

  
I mean yes there can be a time and place for it if it’s harmful for society but that seems to be rare and far between. So why ban it? I don’t think the government should have a say in what we can watch but if it’s who can watch it that’s a different story since there is content that isn’t suitable for certain age ranges. But that is purely a suggestion since many of us I’m sure have watched things that we shouldn’t have necessarily been watching. 

So it took me some digging but I found a completely list of the anime’s that were banned and here they are:

Terror in Resonance

Blood-C

Highschool of the Dead

Ergo Proxy

Parasyte

The Skull Man

Another

Inferno Cop

Afro Samurai

Tokyo Ghoul √A

Sword Art Online II

Tokyo ESP

Tokyo Ravens

Devil May Cry

RIN – Daughters of Mnemosyne

The Testament of Sister New Devil

Attack on Titan

Corpse Party

Strike the Blood

Death Note

Deadman Wonderland

Date A Live II

Psycho-Pass

Devilman Lady

School Days

Those Who Hunt Elves

Elfen Lied

High School DxD

Samurai Bride
So, I Can’t Play H!
Girls Bravo: Second Season

Kanokon

Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero

Sakura Diaries

Black Butler

Claymore

Dance in the Vampire Bund

Now I read that more may be added so we will soon see which of our favorite shows will be added to this already crazy list.

But what do you all think of this and how would you feel or what would you do if your government did this where you lived. Comment down below and let me know!

Long Running Anime Series?!

Published June 8, 2015 by Shay Taree

So todaY’s post is on the more normal side haha but my question is what is your thoughts on long running anime’s?

When I mean long running anime’s I mean any anime that has been going on for years.  So I mean anime’s such as Bleach, Naruto,  One Piece,  or Gintama.

  
My thoughts on long running anime is that I do like them and have found many of the series facinating and interesting. But I do feel that long running anime series can be daunting and also that the storyline may start to get stale. 

  
Now the reason why I say it can be daunting is because I find if there is a lot of episodes it can feel like a chore to start watching it especially if its still producing more episodes. Now as far as the storyline is concerned for some series it can become the same concept for each arc of the series where there is a new bad guy to fight and the main character is at first too weak to win then they go through intense training to prepare for the fight. 

But what do you think of long running anime series. Comment down below to let me know.

Favorite Random Anime Pairing?

Published June 5, 2015 by Shay Taree

So what I mean by random anime pairing is a pairing that isn’t in the actual fandom but one that you like that may or may not work. 

I can’t lie I have a few but one of my favorites is Sesshomaru and Kagome from Inuyasha.

  
I know that Kagome is supposed to be with Inuyasha but for some reason I really like this pairing. 

How I came to like this pairing is actually through fanfiction and I just happened to read a fanfic with those two as the main characters and the pairing. I know that Sesshomaru and Kagome are a weird pairing but for some reason it just works and I think it would happen if Kagome and Inuyasha didn’t work out. 

  
So what is your favorite random anime pairing? Comment down below to let me know what it is and why.  Also I would love to know how you came to like this pairing.

If Anime Became Mainstream?

Published June 3, 2015 by Shay Taree

So I know that there are some anime’s that have broken through that obscure barrier and have become mainstream shows. Shows such as Bleach, Naruto, Pokemon, and Dragon Ball Z. But what would happen if anime as a whole became mainstream? 

  
I mean if anime started airing on the major network channels and airing during prime times and not just at night I think it would be awesome. I think it would give more people the chance to know what anime was about and it would get rid of those assumptions (possibly) that anime is only for kids. 

  
Anime should be mainstream considering that there are now so many shows that have a huge following that are considered nerdier  shows. Sorry I couldn’t think of a better way to phrase but I’ve just been noticing that uprising of shows that seem to cater to an audience that is more on the nerdier or dorkier side. Plus I love it and I think its time that anime made its debut in a primetime slot. I’m so tired of anime seeming to be something that has to be hidden and I think its time for everyone to enjoy it. 

So do you think its time for anime to become  mainstream? Also what do you think would happen of it did?  Or do you think anime shouldn’t be mainstream. Comment down below because I can’t wait to read what you all have to say.

Romantic Drama or Romantic Comedy? 

Published June 1, 2015 by Shay Taree

As many of you may or may not know I love my share of romantic anime but I would like to know which do you prefer when it comes to romance.  Romantic drama or romantic comedy.  

Now I do like romantic dramas 

  
because the drama is what keeps the show interesting and at times will keep me watching.  But there to me can be too much drama where it just goes completely overboard and this I don’t like. 

My definite pick though has to go to romantic comedies. 

  
I don’t know why but the comedic nature of the show paired with romance always makes it interesting. Also I don’t know what it is but with romantic comedy anime’s it just relaxes me. 

So which do you like better. Comment down below to let me know!  Can’t wait to read your responses.
