My advice to a shounen action fan...
« on: May 18, 2012, 11:33 »
I posted this as a response to a person that, since Bleach was canceled, thinks that there all of the new anime coming out is complete garbage. I thought I would share, as I expect that many of you would agree with the sentiments and appreciate the humor:
Quote
@the OP: When you grow up you will appreciate good entertainment. Until then, please refrain from belittling that which you are hormonally incapable of comprehending to prevent people from thinking you daft instead of just hormonally imbalanced due to a perfectly natural state of physical and emotional flux brought on by the natural maturation processes that occur in adolescence. However, please be aware that not everyone is actually successful at emerging from this stage of life! Some young men, and even middle-aged and old men, are permanently suspended in a prolonged version of this chapter of life. We tend to have words that we use to describe these individuals that are related to portions of one's anatomy, such as a particular part of the male anatomy that protrudes from the lower mid-section of the body and another part that is not gender specific, but is in rather close proximity to the aforementioned body part and is an opening for the elimination of bodily waste. Ways that you can help your development and ensure that you do not grow up to be one of these sad specimens of humanity is broadening your interests to include entertainment that contains more complex character structure, more of an emphasis on emotions and character development, and perhaps even an emphasis on story over action. You might even find that, after engaging your brain with this expanded repertoire of entertainment options, you discover that there is another gender that sometimes has overlapping interests and concerns with your own and can be extremely... stimulating... to engage in discourse with, in addition to other forms of social and personal intercourse you might find quite fascinating.

Good luck!

They canceled Bleach? Huh. Must have killed it with fillers, or something. Seriously, there is more out there than shounen anime. Some of the best series are about character development as they are action. Madoka Magica comes to mind for me. Plenty of action, and tons of character development; a series everyone should watch.

I like some shounen stuff, but I wouldn't treat it like my funeral of those series were canceled. There's still plenty more out there, after all. And who knows, maybe once the Bleach manga is done, they'll go back and either finish the anime or start a new one that's free of filler and completely faithful to the manga (like Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood). :serious business:

I'm not sure about Inuyasha, but I know it happened to Ruroni Kenshin.

Oh wow, Bleach was canceled? I can imagine that generating a lot of rage. Some people are entirely too obsessed for their own good.

According to my son, who is 15 and watched Bleach, the anime was within spitting distance of the manga. His bet is that there wasn't enough manga left for a full season and the show is not profitable enough at this point to make it worth making a bunch more filler...

I'd believe it. A shame, but it is what it is. :XD:
