    I'm not a fan of the "adapt to fit a different audience/culture" attitude. I much prefer to watch something a little bit foreign and learn a new way of appreciating it. I find that way more rewarding and memorable.

    Real Life Keijo is going to be like Real Life Quidditch- it sounds great in theory, but in reality it's just a bunch of guys holding cleaning supplies up to their dicks.

    PSA for all Crucnhyroll Expo goers from someone who lives in Santa Clara. If you're looking for food or lodging that is cheaper than right by the expo hall El Camino and Homestead have more options. all you have to do is go right down Bowers (which the convention center is on) to get to them. Also if you want the best donuts in town Stan's Donuts is on the corner of Homestead and Bowers in the same parking lot as the Safeway.

    Keijo is now a real sport, Humanity has reached it's greatest heights. What more could we possibly hope to achieve to outdo that???? Also really does make sense that an anime is now real, as 2016 was the year the world became a parody of itself

    I just cannot comprehend why Bakugo is such a popular character. He's such an unbelievable asshat with little to no redeeming qualities that I just can't make myself like him, no matter how hard I try. Can somebody who likes Bakugo please explain to me why people like his character?

    • AnotherSpencer FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      Sometimes asshats are fun to watch. Also character development is fun to watch. Also he makes for a great foil against Deku.

    • DizzyTiger FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      If you don't like Bakugou it's cause you don't understand. It's because when he was little every adult around him made him believe that he was the best. Then this little asshole Deku keeps looking at him like he's not the best, but that can't be right because he is the best! Then it turns out, Deku who's supposed to be quirkless, is strong, maybe stronger than him, BUT THAT CAN'T BE RIGHT, BAKUGOU IS THE STRONGEST THERE IS.


      That's how Bakugou sees the world, and that super realistic view point is why he's amazing, because he is an asshole, but he genuinely believes he is the best, and he wants everyone to know that. We see many moments through out the series where his world view is shattered, and how he deals with that is what makes him such a powerful character. 

    • Yssa FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      The responses to this so far are pretty spot-on. There are a variety of reasons why Bakugo can be likable to some people (and unlikable to others, like yourself). I can attest that I like Bakugo bc I like to see him and his world view get COMPLETELY WRECKT 

      but also because, on an intrinsic level, I actually relate to Bakugo, and he is totally me if left completely unchecked. People supporting and praising you for a majority of your early life, leading you to believe that you were the best at what you do...then all of sudden, you're not the biggest fish in the pond anymore. It's a character arc set-up where you knock down the person on top and see how they crawl up from the bottom. The best part is that he's still presented as The Hero and not a villain, so then the "suspense" remains: how does he redeem himself after all this?


      Also he's not just any kind of jerk/bully. He actually works really hard to be good at shit. Like, he actually studies, gets questions right, and does listen to his teachers, even if he yells at them first. 


      Assholes with a heart of gold are always winners in a lot of people's eyes because they tend to be the most sincere out of everyone :') They're jerks, but they're completely honest about their jerkassery.


      Anyway that's my love letter for Bakugo.

    • JakovAces FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      2 days ago

      To piggy back off of Yssa's comment, Bakugo also has a surprising amount of maturity to him that seems to go largely unnoticed. Accepting defeat without making excuses is incredibly hard for anyone that prideful. After the training exercise though, Bakugo fully admits not only that Deku beat him, but also that Todoroki would have too. Any other asshole, "I'm the best" type character would have made a million excuses instead of accepting their own weakness.


      Where Bakugo really shines for me though is in the Uraraka fight. When Uraraka starts to get up after using her big "finishing move", Bakugo is pumped and actually CALLS HER BY HER FUCKING NAME! It's a minor detail with an enormous impact because Bakugo doesn't use anyone's actual name. At a moment when everyone else in the stadium has already counted Uraraka out, Bakugo is the only one who acknowledges her true strength and is excited to continue the fight. In this case, Bakugo is the least asshole out of everyone (excluding Uraraka).

    Metroid would be a fucking sick anime for sure but I would love an F-Zero anime where it's just Captain Falcon racing like Redline and Falcon Punching bad guys in the face.

      Yeah,.. that was a cultural 'eye-opener' for me. (another reason I watch this show.)

      I know we (Japan/U.S.) are histories of social differences, but it's the subtlties,.. like sunflowers, Cicadeas, and boob grabbing that have me scratching my head.

      Not to mention the serious delacasies thrown into both good and bad animes.


      It's a small world after all!

    You definitely should watch Made in Abyss. It's absolutely beautiful with exceptional world-building and storytelling. Huge Ghibli and Over the Garden Wall vibes.

    So glad Gosick is getting a dub. As great as the Japanese voices are, the setting makes it a little strange when the main guy is mentioned as the only Japanese person in the whole place.

    (Although I hope the 'Fugee!' moment crossed over well.)


    Gotta say though, I love the ability to inspire Fanservice has. Usually when I get back from conventions I'm hyped up to do something, anything, from all I see at those events. Just to make a video or work on a project I've been procrastinating on. Things like that.

    Fanservice gives that in video form. So I hope it remains 'Still not cancelled' for years to come.
