    I fully agree about the OS. I get that a lot of fans love it, grew up with it, and either feel nostalgically about it or genuinely think it's the best of the five series. And that's fine. I don't believe that any show, definitely not this one, is sacred enough that they deserve that kind of love. But I get it, and I accept that it's just something that happens in every fandom.

    Unfortunately it's not enough that the OS has become something of a sacred cow on this board, but that - and not to start complaining about other posters here - a couple of us have developed an annoying habit of derailing threads or twisting discussions just to talk about how great the OS/Kasumi was, or how Kasumi leaving doomed the ratings to fall, or whatever. I genuinely think DP is the best and I'm certainly not shy about posting that, but I like to think I've at least tried to find something to love about the others, even BW.

    We all have our preferences and love to talk about them, but this isn't something that happens with anything but the OS.

    I liked the post. It's one thing to have a discussion with someone about the pros and cons of a show. It's what fandom is all about.

    But when you're dealing with someone who hasn't seen the show, read a plot synopsis online, and then tries to hold a debate anyway? I feel that it's annoying, and just a little bit disrespectful to the other person who's trying to hold a debate in the first place and just wasted the effort. I might disagree with the other poster I responded to there, but his opinion is automatically more valid just for having watched the anime at all.

    That'll probably be the last time I engage with him in that thread, though, just so I'm not derailing it with unnecessarily huge walls of text.

    Thank you.

    As you can probably tell, I'm a big fan of that part of the series and I often find that there's a lot I like to discuss about it. And I'm a naturally long-winded person, anyway. I know my posts and opinions can be long, but I'm really happy someone is enjoying them.

About Me

  • About Hiroshi Sotomura
    Biography
    I'm the type of person who codes web pages and designs layouts, and enjoy anime, mostly of school life / comedy. And I'd call myself a pretty good gamer, but I'm not the FPS type (which I regularly play nowadays).

    I'm also the kind of person who enjoys tech gear, so I read up on various technology news sites. I also have a penchant for reading, to the point that sloppy writing makes me cringe, even if I don't mention it, but I admit that I have a reading deficiency when it comes to novels - simply because I haven't the time to read them. Reading long paragraphs about the development of the Wii (and the Wii U and 3DS) is probably more a hobby for me, though.

    I'm staunchly against anti-consumer practices in technology. I'm vehement against strict, pointless DRM as per used on Nintendo devices.
    Interests
    Pokémon, anime, video gaming, Nintendo games in general, drawing, ROM hacking, and… not much else.

So you've seen the post I've made, right? We have a new logo and it's official now. :D

I wanted to accompany it with a pretty video that went through the various logos that PC went through over the years, right down to the official logotype we used for some of our very first forum styles (née "themes") but I couldn't, for the life of me,...

You kids deserve a better life like these experimental kids.

Getting kissed for every generic thing you do rather than being praised for being a risk-taker is a little dumb. Have a real soul.
