    I'm afraid it's part of a private forum (one where you need to be approved as a staff member in a certain shady genre of comic translation group :P)

    You're not missing much though!

    The hell do you think Video Games came from?! ESPECIALLY RPGS, DnD, thank you.

    I'd go more into this, but that's all I have to say, that is really important. >Contributed to the rant! =D< And as for Magic, may it NEVER DIE!

    So we should turn this into a Western entertainment appreciation thread?
    Exhibiting the good things the West has come up with.

    ^_^ i like all those American things though! and, it seems like anime/manga is going downhill, in my opinion anyways...

    i was never really into comics, but i would love watching all their cartoons when i was a kid! Justice Friends, X-Men, Spiderman, Batman (which was super good!). it was all good! even now i like watching the Justice League now and again! there is one comic i like called Owly! he's a little owl that has a worm friend and he's so lonely! poor Owly~! Mouse Guard is also pretty good too! yeah, i like comics about animals! oh, Nightmares and Fairytales is good too!

    anyways, and who's been saying sh!t about Disney movies? every country that has a TV and VCR loves Disney movies! they're almost apart of humanity now~! lame!

    Well I like American cartoons and comics. When I was younger I'd wake up and watch Spiderman/Batman TAS/X-Men. I go and see the films they release as well (Iron Man looks amazing, CGI wise at least) I can't wait for The Dark Knight. and as for some other cartoons, Samurai Jack is one of my all time favs. But I do agree with most teens seeing anime more interesting because it's newer to us.

    Re: RANT: Read Some Comics, You Japanophiles!

    The reason (and I'm saying this as a 16 yr. old) I tend to prefer anime is because that is what I grew up watching. That is not to say that I don't appreciate western animation (Family Guy, South Park, Justice League, Batman. Nuff Said.) I personally watch anime for action and drama, and a little comedy. But I mostly get my laughs from western shows. Everything should be in balance. Appreciate the old school and embrace the new school.

    For example, rock. There are some ***holes that reject rock thats from a previous decade, completely closing their minds. Any person who claims they are fans of rock like most of the people here are of anime will name bands they love from AT THE VERY LATEST the late 70s.


    Thanks to _gwenibe_ for this awesome sig!

    How odd for someone to speak like you have stated... and be APPROVED to be in a group like that... that's crazy...

    Well, thanks for the info... I just love all the threads of yours I've come across. Very well spoken ...
