Now im pissed off Kamisama Dolls sold poorly season 2 better still come.

Also mad about Giant Killing and The Legend of Legendary Heroes selling poor. Had such good animation wtf is up with japan. Only thing that sales is ecchi or lolis. Seinen shows never sale good over there.

Seinen Anime is a niche in Japan, but is the most interesting for us Gaijin.

unfortunately anime production in Japan is most influenced by "market study" that is why we get many copycat shows that cater to the same crowed.

another reason i think is the boom of "Hentai" and "ecchi" anime, it is the thing catered to the adults and overcrowding Seinen Anime. instead of something like Fist of the North Star and Ghost in the Shell we get a show about schoolgirls breastfeeding to power up

SMH ! :(

LOL I know right. I guess i like seinen more because most of the characters always have common sense. Even when i grew up and not knowning anime the old batman, gargoyles, x-men, and other american cartoons. The main character always had common sense and never was a dumb ass.

The ecchi and loli bullshit is not for adults. Just for them horny ass teens. You know they censor it on purpose and dvd they uncensor it just to get sales.

At least they did Hokuto no Ken something they deserved with all them back to back movies. Just wish the new anime series did good. I am glad we got another Lupin III anime. Today's anime are too soft they are scared of death in animes. Even if they die they come back some crazy way.

Have you heard of a wedding ring style called tension set wedding rings? This style is very different from traditional wedding rings; it has a stylish, modern appearance. There are many advantages to getting a tension set ring, but there are some disadvantages as well.<br />
<br />
This style of wedding rings is not as widely spread as tradition channel set rings. But they are becoming more popular in recent years because of their elegant beauty. The reason they are called tension set is because the stone is hold in place by tension. In tension set engagement rings and wedding rings a stone is set in an opening in the ring itself and held by tension of the open ends of the ring. This style gives your stone a better exposure.<br />
<br />
Traditionally diamonds are used in this style rings, but in fact you can order a custom made ring with any precious stone which is large enough.<br />
<br />
Tension set wedding rings pros<br />
<br />
Tension set style makes your ring exceptionally beautiful. It will always be the center of attention because of its uniqueness. Your friends will look at your ring and you will hear many compliments to it.<br />
<br />
Tension sets can be made of any material that is used for traditional wedding rings. You can have it in yellow gold, white gold, titanium or platinum. Since this style gives your ring a very modernistic look, platinum and titanium are most popular materials for this style of ring.<br />
<br />
If you are worried about loosing your beautiful diamond, don't be. Manufacturers of tension sets claim that the stone is hold very securely and will not get lost. You actually have more chances of loosing your diamond from a traditional channel set ring. If you handle your ring with care, your gem will stay there.<br />
<br />
Tension set ring cons<br />
<br />
The biggest drawback of this style of rings is that they are very difficult to resize. Resizing this style of rings can break the tension and the stone may come lose. This might be a serious problem for a wedding ring, because you are going to wear it for the rest of your life. You may gain or lose weight, and even if you don't, with age your fingers "shrink". Most people need to resize their wedding rings as life goes on, but with tension set rings this is almost impossible.<br />
<br />
Another disadvantage is not really any concern to you; it is a problem for jewelers themselves. While the stone can't come loose accidentally, it is easy to remove if a person deliberately holds the ring open. So many not so honest people remove the diamond, and then come back to a jeweler complaining that the gem is lost. But as we already mentioned this is not your problem as a customer.<br />
<br />
Tension set wedding rings are for people who want something different. Surprisingly, considering the cost of diamond and the material, they are not much more expensive than traditional rings. So if you want a unique, stylish ring that shows your gem in all its glory, go for a tension set ring.
