Some of my friends noted that I had sent ANN’s Answerman a thing in 2007 and he never published it, so I cussed him out on the ANN forums. Thanks to Gmail here it is. It’s kind of hilariously obvious trolling, and I guess he just didn’t take the bait, but I thought you might to read it anyway. Just skip this if you don’t care. (more…)

Now, recall that RapeLay was released in 2006, but mysteriously became big news starting on May 28.
Yesterday the investigation culminated with EOCS changing its regulations, by brute force, without a joint vote, to outlaw naughty games.
Who could have such political sway?
Especially with Taro Aso being a bizarrely intense force for promoting anime and manga,
and the Diet in general being completely ineffective since Koizumi retired.
The softhouses came up with a creative answer to this question.
Somehow, somewhere, a cabal of foreign politicians had convened to ban rape games.
They decided this without any evidence whatsoever.
Furthermore, since there was no public evidence that anyone outside Japan cared, this must have been a secret conspiracy!
I wasn’t going to post this originally since it seemed too out there, but now that Hagaren’s cast has changed I feel marginally more comfortable posting these completely unsourced rumors from a random 2ch post, many of which have already, by pure chance, come true! via yunakiti since I am a busy adult with no time to actually read 2ch

I guess we have to sit back and see how this pans out! Maybe it’s all part of Kadokawa’s master plan. even this very blog post.
Hey, reader, this doesn’t have much to do with the rest of this blog, but hear me out for a second.
The other day, I went to a doujin fair; you know, like Comiket?
Well anyways, there were an insane number of people there acting fairly normal.
Then I looked in the guidebook, and it said “no cosplay” in the rules.
What is this? How could this be?
Why would you come to an “anime convention” if there’s no cosplay?
It’s 700 yen, 7-0-0 YEN for crying out loud.
There are even entire families here. A family of four, coming to a doujin fair?
That’s when it hit me: this was not an “anime convention”.
In fact, there is nothing in Japan remotely resembling an “anime convention”.
Panels? Screenings? Aren’t these things really just a waste of time?
Maybe some people have no computers and spent their last $30 to watch some Mazinger-Z and listen to fat women talk about yaoi.
Maybe some of the congoers have no access to YouTube or Hulu, and are unable download podcasts.
But I’m betting most people come to meet other anime fans whom they already know.
I’m betting most people are doing something that they could do in private, but are doing it in public instead. (more…)
In Japan? Want to work in the doujin world? Don’t mind long hours and no pay? Has Hachimitsu Kuma-san got the job for you!Saturday, January 31st, 2009
In essence, they are looking for someone to do odd jobs for them, basically filling in whatever need they have at the moment. A few more details:
*Must live within an hour of Omiya city in Chiba prefecture.
*Must be able to be on call even after midnight on days off.
*Will work for free. (this part is only mentioned on the mixi posting.)
Sounds like a dream job, right?
Well, apparently those nay-sayers at 2ch don’t think so. What a bunch of negative nancies! They’ve even gone so far as to post a lot of copy/pastes making some pretty harsh allegations about Hachikuma-san’s business practices, but you can find those on your own, or I’m sure some other blogger will post them as The Absolute Truth, cause 2ch kopipe is never wrong. Anyway, any of you folks out there thinking of applying?!
