I Hope Nippon-sempai Notices Me: Gundam Wing and Why I’ve Always Hated Anime Fans

I’ve mentioned this story to some friends of mine, and listeners of older Nerdfit podcasts, but it bears repeating here. It is the story of how I came to be introduced to Gundam, and it bears this kernel of truth. That despite hanging out with friends who enjoy anime, and my convention goings – at the end of the day I have always hated the anime fandom.

I Hope Nippon-sempai Notices Me: Filler Arcs and Anime Sucks at Tension

One of the great things that I find in shows like Kill la Kill, or Breaking Bad is this notion of pacing. Pacing has and continues to be a constant problem in anime. No I’m not saying anime needs to go the Crank route and be pure octane fuel (although sure that’s fine). But a show like Haibane Renmai while slow, is still well paced, because it keeps it’s pace.

I Hope Nippon-sempai Notices Me: Military and Does Japan Love or Disrespect the Armed Forces?

So with the constant release of things like KanColle, and it’s predecessor Strike Witches it’s clear that Japan understands that even though it may not make much sense, a woman in military uniform has an attractiveness (to Japan’s loli lovers) mixed with wanted to have your ass kicked – a perfect recipe for your otakus.

I Hope Nippon-sempai Notices Me: S2 and Why it’s More Like Movie Sequels Instead of Multiple Seasons

In truth many feel that the 2nd and 3rd are better as the show begins to really find it’s footing. Compare this to anime, where if a show is broken into multiple seasons – it often feels more like with each season the show is just worse and worse.

I Hope Nippon-sempai Notices Me: Hetalia and Why it’s Like Joining ISIS

I normally try to avoid making title lines so click-bait-y so let me get something out of the way real quick before the fans get their usual course of angry. I am in fact generally okay with Hetalia – I enjoy jokes at Canada, DBZ references – and overall nationality based humor. However my enjoyment of Hetalia is tempered by something that most fans of it seem to ignore – that a whole lot of people fucken died.

I Hope Nippon-sempai Notices Me: Hellsing/Hunter x Hunter and Why Can Anime do Remakes Well?

There’s a large movement in current Hollywood movies in that there are a lot of remakes. Despite that many of these remakes can fix the 90’s vibe many of them carried, it’s rare that the remake is superior to the original. This however is different in anime where most remakes are usually much better – which doesn’t make sense at first.
