    actually i find tha most teachers are like that.

    well except for this one teacher that was really freaky. we had a guy in class that liked reading harlequin novels and she totaly blew up at him for it... but the girls in class read those books and she did absoulutly nothing.... :?

    but thats another discussion... don't want to stray too far off topic...

    Student: "Umm sensei, the question on the board is wrong."
    Teacher "SHAAAADD UP!"

    Well psychology can be found about everywhere in mangas/anime, so yes I think it might be interesting to discuss the subject.

    This is wat i have to say...not that i hate u guys and i think that all of you have agreed on the same concept over and over again...though i guess ill take the different side and side with the other side....=P

    While i dont want the censors to go take them all out....i mean...i think its a good idea to keep them in a library...i find that in almost many cases...manga is another essential part of literature...it may sound crazy to u guys...but here is wat i am thinkin here...reading..in the beginning was there for personal enjoyment mostly but was also incorporated into english and english related topics...now i dont know about u but i find that manga is part of the literature group as it does exhibit all parts of a story plot such as the climax and what not...not only that..but manga is also (in my own thoughts) in some ways basic english...I mean..if u take out the pictures and illustrations of what not...its exactly like a book like the way shakespeare writes his playwrights is it not? I think they should keep it in the libraries although i think they should monitor the age acceptance..i dont mind that manga is in my library if i had one...though letting someone read and checking it out is a whole different story..i mean..im not gonna give a lido 5th grade student a 16+ aged manga and let him read it right off the bat..i mean..there are age restrictions and i am one that will respect that and give what manga to the right age group...the fact that manga is actually in libraries interests me because where im from...there is no such library around...if u were to read manga in some library related type store such as Barnes and Nobles..i wouldnt mind...i mean..its there for personal enjoyment and maybe even incorporated into english related subjects of what not...

    On the plus side of getting them into libraries is the growing popularity for manga which thus might have an effect on the United States and thus promoting the translations of other mangas that have not yet come out in the America's...I for one would have to side with the librarians....if it disappoints any of you then sorry if i offended you..but everyone is entitled to their own reasonable opinion i think...and i think mine is reasonable enough for me to side with them

    Perhaps, but it also lets people think and understand that they have a % of the opposite sex in them as part of their personality, if you wish to go into psychology, which can be very constructive.

    I just noticed that someone took KenX's post seriously. What is up with that?
    Clan? What Clan?
    I'm the Master. I need no Clan.

    I mean seriously...come on. Why would you even want to watch someone who magically converts sexes when he/she gets water dumped on him/her. It's just totally retarded.
