NA SMS, seramyu, and japanese
- Wow, gone for a week and all hell has broken loose.
First off, when that first letter regarding NA SMS came out, my heart
literally seethed. I couldn't believe they were doing that. I could
understand on video and dvd, but on TV? That means big time censorship. I
doubt Michiru and Haruka's relationship will be too obvious, considering this
will be shown on Cartoon Network. However, they also show Gundam Wing which
is just slightly censored. (Late at night, they show the uncensored
version.) They could do this for SMS, but I don't know... When the SD
International Comic-Con begins in July, I'm going to go there and stock up on
SMS videos before they all get eaten up by hungry consumers.
And then I went further down the list....
Do I see stereotyping? (I know this has been beaten to death, but it
offended me so much....you can skip it if you want.) See, I thought that
people on this list were generally open-minded. Yeah, a few 'complaints'
about men and such, but nothing as big as this. Of course, being Japanese
myself, I have to defend my heritage. Saying something like, "Japanese
people are stout," makes me feel kind of bad. That's the same thing as me
telling one of my Japanese friends that, "American people shouldn't play
chars in SM because they're obese," which they all aren't. Generalizing a
group of people like that is extremely wrong and disgusts me.
Sorry about the ranting, everybody, especially if I offended anybody.
