About Me:

Ask me why I do what I do:


A long time ago I became an anime fan because I though said anime was cool.  But then I noticed most of the anime being more anti-"average joe."  And its fanbase becoming more like a collection of bullies, social outcasts, and sadistic voyeurs (who enjoy seeing people in misery and pain) than it should.


The final straw came mainly via Hideaki Anno's Evangelion and every Bandai anime starting with Gundam Seed.  I saw the bar being lowered in terms of story-telling.  And then I had to send e-mails to companies, call them on the phone, and (when all else fails) publically scold them on YouTube for basically "digging the bottom of the barrel."


I'm the main reason why Bandai Visual USA had gone defunct; I asked them to dub their anime in English since they're charging around $50 for 2-3 episodes per disk.  They gave me the runaround on why they WON'T dub, they seem to hold their ears when I mentioned their competitor Funimation, and (nearing their end) had treated ME like a moron.


Why are some of these anime companies reporting quarterly losses?  Because they only relied on a small number of buyers.  A truly successful company sells a wide variety and doesn't treat outsiders like trash.


"The customer is always right."  "Voting with your wallet."  What's wrong with these concepts?
