Censorship is anime's online pass

655d ago ... As many gamers know, there has recently become an issue with games featuring online passes that require a gamer to buy a game brand new if they want to access all of the features that used to be accessible to everyone. If these people who rent or buy used want to access this content, they have to pay a fee. Now in recent years, or at least recent in my six or seven years of anime watching, a...

Rise of Fan Service in Fighting anime

682d ago ... Considering I've built up a bit of a repertoire for talking about fan service and ecchi content I figure that it may be something to continue. Now this time around I would like to talk about how fan service is handled in most fighting anime. Now what is interesting with most fighting anime, the fan service actually swings both ways. First we have a large amount of fighting anime which focus...

Lay Dragon Ball Z to rest or give it a true revitalization

718d ago ... By this point in time, I'm pretty sure that nearly everyone who has watched anime has seen Dragon Ball Z in some sort of format. This includes either the original Dragon Ball Z shown on television back in the '90s or the more recent run of Dragon Ball Z Kai, there is obviously a lot of love for the series. In fact, there is so much love for the Dragon Ball series that companies such as Namco...

Does fanservice ruin a show?

749d ago ... Now before I begin, it is obvious that some people have certain tastes when it come to the anime they watch. However it has lately become abundantly clear that there is a vocal group of people who absolutely abhor anything with fan service, whether it be for women or for men. Of course, as mentioned before, not everyone enjoys fan service though there are a number of people who will absolute...

The missing Archaic and more moderation?

762d ago ... We all know that everyone has things that are more important than looking at sites like Animeshinbun all the time. Also Archaic, the only moderator I believe that is on Shinbun, has other obligations as well with his running of Bulbapedia and has become sick in the past which requires his full attention of course. On the other hand, it has now been over a month since Archaic has been online...

Toonami's positive effect on the anime industry

769d ago ... Undoubtedly the return of Toonami has been a major boon for the anime industry as well as fans of anime in North America. Many of us grew up with Toonami and its influence may have even caused us to become anime fans further down the road. Now the return of Toonami obviously has had a number of immediate positive effects, such as providing two, never before shown on television, shows to the...

Should mangakas reveal the true reason behind their hiatuses?

817d ago ... If there is one thing that fans of manga or light novels hate, it is when their favorite author chooses to take an extended hiatus without giving any reason for their stoppage in work. For example, Hunter x Hunter's writer Yoshiro Tagashi is notorious for taking long breaks from writing his manga, and the author of Highschool of the Dead has also been MIA for over a year at this point. While...

Is English Dub quality and popularity on the rise?

823d ago ... When I first began watching anime heavily about 4 years ago, the mindset for most of the people I spoke with was that English dubs were absolutely atrocious and everyone preferred reading the English subtitles for anime releases instead. Now a few years have passed and interestingly enough, that mindset seems to have shifted drastically. Now this is obviously still a matter of choice for the...

Would you import anime from Japan if it included English subs?

831d ago ... Occasionally there are games that are announced and released in Japan that gamers know will never ever see the light of day in the Western world unless they choose to pay the extra money to import the game. This obviously isn't the best option for most games, as not only does it cost more money but the titles aren't localized at all, meaning players will need to experience a title they barely u...
