I’ve lived in Japan for awhile now. And although I often go to game centers (To play WMMT4), I find absolutely NO appeal whatsoever to the crane games.
I see my friends, and they all drop 100 yen coins like they’re skittles into these machines. It can cost quite literally, 1500-2000 yen for one of those little action figure things, depending on how lucky you are, that I can buy for 400 yen in a store somewhere else.
Not only is it a waste of money, but it’s a waste of time, and the cute little Japanese girls monitoring the game center will be the first ones to tell you behind closed doors that the crane games are geared to lose (I should know, as I slept with a game center employee awhile back).I’ve watched my friends go in and out and spend 5000 yen or more on these dumb things. And all they walk out with is a pillow, and a couple small action figures. Maybe it’s just Japanese culture or something, but I don’t get it.
My current girlfriend doesn’t like to even go to game centers, let alone play crane games.
At least with her I feel like I’m dating a grown up.
I didn’t know that the guy who directed Akira (a mediocre movie) also directed Steamboy (a great movie). You learn something new every day.
This app is horrible. I wanted to read the FULL comic Dredd because I saw the trailer at a movie,but instead this app lead me on. This was my first time ever reading a comic (I’m a girl and never thought I would ever read one of these things ^.^) and the experience wasn’t the best.
I think I’ll stick to manga for now on, at least they let you read the full series without making you pay for it.For anyone who wants to read the comic Dredd, forget about it. It’s hard to find any scans online, and the actual site makes you pay for it.
Jump manga actually allows sites such as Mangafox an Mangareader to actually publish the scans online FOR FREE. It actually helps business.I read the series D.Gray-man on Mangareader and liked it so much I went out and bought all the books. (there are 23 volumes and they cost at least $10 each, that’s $230!) So in conclusion, if you bought this app to read the comic Dredd, delete it immediately. Your better off reading some other comic or -better yet- switch to manga!
You don’t have to pay for the books if you read the scans online and comics are the American version of Japanese manga that has been around for centuries.
OH MY dear Friggin’ Haruhi on a cosmic cracker!! What Madness was that?? Dear Lord WHHHYYY must American’s RUIN EVERYTHING About Anime culture!!
I can see the meme’s on 2 & 4Chan now! - “Maid Cafe in….Detroit??” = YOU’RE DOING IT WRONG!!
Just because I can get naked - doesn’t mean I can be “Magic Mike”. If you’re not even going to duplicate the standards of the Japanese Maid Cafe’s DON’T EVEN TRY!!!!
This story is soooo disturbing I must share it with the TRUE Otaku’s of the Japanese way (SankakuComplex, 2chan. 4chan, basically everywhere MOE’ thrives).So full of “WTF?” - Political Correctness & Maid Cafe’s can not exist in the same Space!! (and I’m not talking about the Dude - women deserve a Butler) SOOOO SOOO Friggin’ WRONG!!!
**don’t Hate! be open minded & accepting of opposing POV’s like MINE, You don’t want to have my civil liberties or feelings violated by selfish elitist Liberals who think only there view of ‘Society’ is valid in the most public of ALL English Anime News forums do you? Just exercising my right to FREE Speech. Remember No one likes a self elected elitist Hater!** Don’t Be that Guy! Cheers!
I fail to see any heavy pandering to the Yoai fangirls in Gundam 00 and if it’s that well hidden to the point where I cannot pick it up then it must not be too thick in the source material.
Mickey has nephews, Donald has nephews, Goofy has a son.
And he wasn’t adopted, he looks just like him.
Goofy……has had sex.
Goofy…..has known a woman biblically….
Imagine what it must’ve looked like.
Imagine what it sounded like.
Male heterosexual moe fans are frequently made fun of. Being called manchildren, basement dwellers, etc. It seems any anime journalist that gets paid actual money for their content have a negative view of heterosexual moe fans but have gone on the record of saying they support homosexual marriage (and have homosexual friends).
