    The SOS Brigade in a NORMAL Japanese commercial...

    Alright, I found something rather shocking today when I was watching the TV today. A Gum commercial with Haruhi, Mikuru, and Nagato in it...
    I mean, it(the gum) has nothing to do with anime!!!
    you can check it out here
    ã*口の恋人 ãƒ*ッãƒ*|ガãƒ*|LOTTE ACUO|CM紹介|ブãƒ*ã‚ £ãƒƒã‚¯ç¯‡

    This isn't really doing any good for the anime community. This gives the "stereotype" to anime that all anime is like "Haruhi".
    I mean, I guess I can go on to say that it is a little dissapointing that they used the character design of the second season rather than the first season, but this just kind of angers me... If it was like using Spike from Cowboy Bebop for a cigarette commercial, but this is just...
    It's a different case than having Batman or Superman in your commercials, if you know what I'm saying.

    Anyways, what do you think?

    It is difficult to imagine, but yes, anime characters can become celebrities and even sex symbols in Japan.

    LOL!!! That sounds pretty funny!(yet weird at the same time)
    I always seem to not talk to you because i am embarrassed around you, but inside I enjoy the times we have, even if you don't know how I feel about you. The truth is, I love you. So take my hand and we can be together....if you love me too.
