I'm not sure, but K-On and Lucky Star seem a bit... over the top for non-fans, wouldn't you say?
Darker Than Black. That's just about the only one I could think of.
My question is... what other candidate in the same category were there?
Whoa, you help operate Bulbapedia? Good show, my friend!
I learned Japanese from it. But mostly, it taught me a lot about relationships. How they're a bunch of hooey and how they can also be the greatest thing on the face of the planet. That, and the fact that if someone you like shouts your name, your power level goes over 9000.
The title is misleading on the meaning of the article. Given, if I don't like an anime, I won't watch it. But if someone brings it up in a conversation, I don't get a sudden urge to watch it just so I can discuss. I simply ask the person who knows about the said anime to fill me in... which is, obviously, a lot more simpler, and wastes less time.
Reminds me of how some anime sites removed licensed series, but when you use the search function for them, it provides a link to the page they're all on, much like how you'd find a normal page by browsing, except only accessible by search. :P
Reminds of that article I saw on MSN of "legendary one-tweet accounts".
I'm quite sure that everybody who's anybody would stay away from this like the plague. Undoubtedly, we'll see our standard share of typical Naruto/Bleach/One Piece fans on there, and let's hope nothing else pops up that stirs controversy.
If anything, this probably only fuels the hype that non-informed people already have towards manga, unfortunately. And likewise, as well, I don't admit my hobby of manga for this very reason as well.
The most obvious choice (and the one mandated by the ravenous followers of CG and Lelouch x C2 lovers everywhere), is that Lelouch is not dead. The most obvious theory, anyways.
@Archaic: My bad about that, should have added "'s work" at the end of that statement. Sorry for bringing up any misunderstandings. :P
This made me laugh, especially as one who knows the artist. XD
I do buy sometimes, but for the most part, the mangas/animes that I want to buy most are all overseas, unable to be brought over due to America's xenophobic craze against ecchi.
Yeah, I'm inclined to agree as well. All those games are horrible candidates. Making them into an anime of all things was furthest from my mind.
Bad guys? No. Anti-heroes? Yes.
Yeah, I thought that, too, when I first saw it... "Hey, Miku seems more scantily clad today..."
The problem is that people still buy it up. That's why they can afford to keep prices like that.
No doubt fan service... for people who aren't already familiar with the game itself, anyways.
Well, the American public isn't as receptive as Japan when it comes to anime, maybe they should take that into consideration, as well.
