Adult Swim took away InuYasha! Now what am I going to do?! I get up every school morning to watch this! NOOOOOOO! this is terrible. Cartoon Network is being totally idiotic, and completely betraying me as a viewer....first they kill toonami, now they've cancelled InuYasha on the weekdays......and replaced it with freakin HOME MOVIES. that's right. freakin crappin HOME MOVIES. a crap-shot, badly animated, worthless piece of low-budget crap. I don't even know if i'm going to continue watchin [as] at all. this is just.......agh!

Ok, I found this quote in a book by Nancy Werlin, titled "Impossible". I really liked it, and it seemed to fit my life pretty well. If you take it at face value of course. If you read the book, and take the quote from that perspective, weeeelllllll. Anyways, my life is nothing like the main girls, just to clear that up. Anyway, so here it is.
"I'm not sayin I'm glad it happened. Not exactly. But I'm not sorry to be the person I am today, and to have the life I have now. Even though it's not what I thought I wanted for my future, a year ago, it is what I want now. ..(skip a little part)...I'm glad for the truth. I'm glad to know the truth about her and how brave and loving she was."
So yeah, just a quote I liked, and I felt like putting it in here. I think I may start putting a bunch of qoutes on my site, some from anime, some from school, and some from books. ....No one comes here, do they.

ok, it's pretty much like, 1:17 in the morning, but this is important. I just found out that Toonami (Cartoon Network's anime block) ended tonight! Now, admittedly, if i watched it anymore, i would have known this a few hours ago, but since all toonami's been showing recently is crapy-naruto fillers, i'm usually just watching adult swim for my anime. But still! toonami has been such a big part of my life, as well as many other anime fans of my generation. it's where we first saw anime, even if it was just sailor moon, dbz, gundam, and tenchi muyo. that program is what helped us become otaku, which plays a big part of our lives. I just can't believe it. I've been with toonami since about a year after it came out, some of my friends since it first came out when we were about 5,6, or 7 yrs old. this is just such a big shock. i can't believe it. around a decade of anime, and they just shut it down. Toonami has been my major source of anime from the time i was a really little kid. ........i just can't believe it. i'm sorry for writing this, since there's really no point. However, since i seem to basically be making this an online anime-related journal, i wanted to type it in and save the date at the very least. this is just so, major. I don't even know what to liken it to.......

I really should stop going on to theOtaku.com, because now i'm thinking again. Anyway, i just read a few essays on the relationship between the companies (Viz, Tokyopop, etc) and the consumers (us). And that got me thinking about pirating. Last year in english i wrote an essay about pirating and fansubs and all of that related joy. Anyway, i just wanted to babble in a less-conformed way about the similar topic. Thing is, i know about the temptation to steal anime or even manga off the internet. In fact, i did steal manga off the internet briefly. In fact, the only reason i'm not stealing it now is because i told a friend of mine about this awesome site with free manga and she said "Sorry, I don't like to pirate." And i had one of those moments where if i was an anime character, my eyse would be wide open, i wouldn't be able to talk, or move, except to fall to my knees. Basically, i went into shock. Later, when i went back home, i thought about what she said and went on a major guilt trip. I haven't gone back to that site since then, and even stopped reading the manga i'd already downloaded onto my computer. I'm still ashamed that a.) i stole manga, from authors who's work i really loved and b.) i didn't even realize i was stealing, reading in essence fansubs, which i'd already written a paper against and was firmly opposed to. it took a comment from a friend to make me realize that i was being a freakin terrible hypocrite. But that whole story wasn't the point of this post. The point is, that stealing anime and manga,(and yes, taking it off the internet without the author's express persmission that it can be viewed for free, is stealing. plain and simple.) is wrong. totally wrong. One, it depletes the businesses that supply us with dubs, give us voice actors to idolize, and helps generalize anime and give it to a greater audience. I mean, for me, and many of my generation, we first were introduced to anime when we were little kids, watching tv after school on Toonami. for us, anime like Sailor Moon, DBZ, and Gundam Zero were what brought us into the world of anime. and we owe that to the companies. But, i also read that the companies depend on us, not the other way around. And they do, but, we also depend on them for legal anime dubs. I'm not saying that anime will disappear, far from it. But easy to obtain anime in the english language will no longer be so easy to obtain.
And i know that anime is freakishly expensive-especially compared to a box series of an American series. Think InuYasha (yes i'm obsessed-deal with it) and uh, CSI. Which one would give you more hours on the dvd for a less price. Now, i really don't know, maybe CSI is way more expensive than Inu-i didn't research and don't plan on it. But you get the point. An American TV series is normally cheaper than anime. but you also have to realize that producing anime in America is much more expensive. Not only do the countries have to pay the voice actors, they also have to buy the rights from the Japanese companies, hire a translator, and sometimes reformat things in the anime. All that costs a lot of money, which they make back by charging obscenely high prices for their products. Unfortunatly, many otaku seem to be in the poorer class. like me in all of my lower end of the lower middle class spectrum. Plus, if the fans don't pay, we aren't supporting anime, manga, or the authors who depend on us for their money. Anyway, i think i've basically gone off topic. Again. sorry.

Odd Thomas; Moribito
Ok, first, to get this out of the way-the new show on adult swim on saturdays that i mentioned before is called Moribito (:Gaurdian of the Spirit....?). It's a fantasy anime, primarily. The story line is similar to just any old saga style fantasy series, but is actually pretty good in spite of that. The characters are pretty well ...displayed? (that doesn't sound right, and i'm sorry, i can't think of anything better)Anyway, oddly enough, the series reminds me a lot of Ghost in the Shell:Stand Alone Complex. The drawing style, character's and their personalities, and the overall feel of the story is similar. Even tho the two are set in completely different places. Moribito is in some sort of fuedal-era japan with supernatural elements, while GitS:SAC is basically japan in the future, with cyborgs and robots galore. Anyway, i seriously think you should check it out. It's a good anime.
The second thing i was going to talk about was that one of the best sci-fi-thriller-suspense-mystery-fantasy writers, Dean Koontz, has begun producing manga. Well, it's not manga manga, it's ameri-manga, but you get the point. Mr. Koontz has turned 2 of his series, the "Odd Thomas" series and his "Frakenstien" series into a graphic novel format. Queenie Chan is illustrating the "Odd Thomas" series. I don't know who is illustrating "Frakenstien". Anyway, Dean Koontz is a great author, and his graphic novels continue that tradition of awesomeness. If u like Dean Koontz, or u think u might, check out his graphix for sure. They're definetly worth it. Even my not-into-manga-mom read the first "Odd Thomas" and actually liked it and finished it. I have nothing more to say. I'm gonna go now. bye.
