Day 23 - Anime you think had the best, or most intriguing art
Welllllll I love anime/manga that’s different from the usual cute, big-eyed style. Prime examples being Ono Natsume:
and Nakamura Asumiko:
I know some people consider this style ugly, hah, I know I did at first, but when you add in the author’s wonderful storytelling then you can see it really fits. It does grow on you and ends up being quite charming.
In terms of style I love Shinbo Akiyuki/SHAFT’s acid trips.
The designfag inside me squeals. The absurdity, typography, mixed media and colours are all wonderful.
A white woman, about 51 years old, was seated next to a black man on an airplane. Obviously disturbed by this, she called the air hostess. "Madam, what is the matter?" the hostess asked. "You obviously do not see it," she responded. "You placed me next to a black man. I do not agree to sit next to someone from such a repugnant group. Give me an alternative seat." "Be calm please," the hostess replied. "Almost all the places on this flight are taken. I will go to see if another place is available." The Hostess went away and then came back a few minutes later. "Mam, I spoke to the captain and he informed me that there is also no seat in the business class. All the same, we still have one place in the first class." Before the woman could say anything, the hostess continued, "It is not usual for our company to permit someone from the economy class to sit in the first class. However, given the circumstances, the captain feels that it would be scandalous to make someone sit next to someone so disgusting." The hostess turned to the black man and said "Therefore, Sir, if you would like to, please collect your hand luggage, a seat awaits you in first class." At that moment, the other passengers who were shocked by what they had just witnessed stood up and applauded.
This constant hate on shows like Kuroshitsuji, KHR and Hakuouki, purely because they tend to the female audience. Now, this hate I’m seeing is mostly coming from male anime fans. Hmm, so you can over-sized boobs bouncing everywhere and we can’t have our bishounen? Oh, I love seeing a hot chick with great boobs so I’m not slandering that. It’s just that a harem of good looking bishies, on a decent show, only come once in a while. When compared to constant boob and panty shots in anime you’re slandering the fact that we finally get some fan service?
I’m not saying they’re the most amazing series or that you should love it, just do the common courtesy thing and if you don’t like it SHUT THE FUCK UP C:
