I know how you want it to be pronounced but I can't help but read it like "quiche" :awesome:

I think its the length and look in some ways. Its just something that I am unable to get into. I have watched some and read some manga for Naruto/ Shippūden so I know it has a really good story within it. I always try to keep on going even with how good Shippūden is getting, but I just can't. Its the same with Bleach. I really love the character Orihime, but the series as a whole I just didn't like anything but that ark.

Other series like: Ayashi no Ceres, E's Otherwise, Fushigi Yūgi, Flame of Recca, Saiyuki, etc. Are REALLY good in comparison.

I even watched DBZ when I was younger up until the dad went to the heaven training thing. And I just didn't watch it after that because I just didn't find it as good anymore.

Or even one's like Weiß Kreuz 1 & 2, X, X(1999), Record of Lodoss War, Eureka Seven, Noein, etc I can watch those and really love them. Studio Ghibli its different in its art style, but I like watching them.

But I there is just something in the art style that Naruto has I don't like. The Gundam's before Gundam Seed and Gundam Seed Destiny. Everyone always says how good they are, but I can't watch them. I can't even watch Trigun, and had a really hard time watching Cowboy Bebop.

So you can't watch older anime?

I can't identify me in one of these two types. When I used to watch animes (now I rarely do), I used to pay attention on the story, but characters have always had an important role in the vision of the anime. And I've never cared what other people know about animes, so maybe I'm closer to the type B, but in the end I just enjoy what I watch, without particular distinction.

Well Fushigi Yūgi, Record of Lodoss War, Flame of Recca, Bronze: Zetsuai, Cathedrix, and even Ai no Kusabi are pretty old you know. And I've watched them, and really enjoyed them. I think is mostly to do with the colouring, and just animation types.

If the cover of a book can't sell me I don't read it. Much the same as the colour and styles of anime.

So, 90s anime is old? It looks more like current anime than Tetsujin 28-go or Hurricane Polimar. By the way, I was referring Gundam 0079 with my previous question about old anime.

What's with the examples on that website? I seriously thought even K-ON! had a more mature "plot" than Eden of the East... Just that according to my experience when anime tries to get serious and complex it usually ends up a little bit embarassing. Consequently that's why I prefer slice of life kinda stuff with really down-to-earth themes and a loose plot.

So what you're saying is that Serious Business Anime is just lying to itself and making stuff up in order to make money while thinly masking it's plot as an attempt to seem philosophical? If so, you're probably right for the most part.

^ lol.. maybe. Mostly I'm just bothered with the lack of any subversive elements. Serious Business Anime should have a proper critical edge, no?

All the more reason to admire Miyazaki. His environmentalism boreders too much on new age for my taste but I totally appreciate his pro-feminist works :up:

According to wannabe porn site Sankaku Complex, 2chan has identified two kinds of otaku

Sure, I'll admit that Sankaku Complex has a bit of off the wall facts occasionally, and the word otaku has a negative connotation when used by Japanese people, but the information given still sort of makes sense in context and sounds like the kind of thing that 2chan would do. Besides, have you ever even been to Sankaku Complex? I'm not doubting your credibility or knowledge or anything, I'm just curious.

Regarding the otaku thing, I kind of assumed that a good amount of this site's members were more or less actual shut ins anyway(I am, to a certain extent, at least), so the term otaku was actually quite fitting. Besides, it's really a cultural difference thing, wouldn't you say? It's like how some words offend certain people depending on the context and who's saying them.

Regardless, don't you think that there's probably a bit of difference in terms of mentality and personality between the people who really like K-on! and the people who really like Legend Of the Galactic Heroes?(And no, I'm not bashing the fans of either.) I'm pretty sure that's all what they were really trying to convey here.

No, I have never been to Sankaku Complex, and I just checked it out and don't understand. Wannabe porn site? It's.... ugh, it's a bunch of drawings and people cosplaying suggestively. That's considered porn? Actually, now that I say that, that does make sense. Wannabe porn site.

This is where you lost me though. I'm not really into the whole terms or anything, so why does otaku fit with shut ins? And what's a shut in? o_O Is it literally a person who is shut in, like inside their home? And even moreso, how are org people shut ins? I'm genuinely serious because I don't know these terms.

Oh, sure, that makes sense. And their two types make sense, even though I'd break it down much further than that.
I literally meant though, I am neither type. I'm not an otaku, nor am I a type.
