How's it going my gumdrops? 2 weeks ago, I joined Adult Swim's forum. OMG! I am no stranger to belonging to a forum and I wasn't expecting a welcoming committee, but the posters on that message board are fucking ridiculous. They validate my reasons for not uploading a forum (by using an app) to It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns.
Adult Swim posters are just as obnoxious as YouTube posters. They nit pick the shit out of the most trivial bullshit and are EXTREMELY judgmental of people they just meet.
Some posters have been civil and some have been welcoming. On the other hand, the rest are rude, antagonistic, accusatory (some accused me of being a troll), pompous ass posters.
There is 1 poster in particular, who is a complete know-it-all. I was informed, that he was banned numerous times for his douchebaggery. That poster has the tendency to be condescending and act like he is putting posters in their places YET he does NOT know the difference between "then" and "than" in a sentence.
It's "rather THAN" and NOT "rather then."
While that same poster is so busy trying to "challenge" other posters, he should challenge himself by studying Basic English. Here is where it gets better: He automatically assumed, that...
1) I had nothing else better to do or watch than Adult Swim.
2) I was "throwing tantrums" and happen to be "more sexist" than I claim both Cartoon Network and Adult Swim to be with my opposing views.
3) He went as far as to drag Barbie into an argument out of thin air.
Wow! Seriously? Talk about a major joke. It is a good thing I was unallowed to use Cristina Scabbia's (from Lacuna Coil) doll as my avatar. I always love whenever people declare a war on Barbie.
Being female and liking anything with feminine qualities is blasphemous! The female gender is forbidden from having beauty, brains, goals, accomplishments, a career, etc. Considering that I am "sexist" and all, why is that same dipshit posting in my thread?
Obviously, he is someone without a life of his own, if all he can do is instigate with everyone. That trollish poster is like a terrible rash, that won't leave.
Last night, there was another instigator in my Adult Swim thread. She psychoanalyzed and nit picked my username. It served no relevance to the discussion I was trying to have with other posters.
This included her assumptions, that I didn't think the female audience should watch Shonen and Seinen Action Anime. I had already addressed this issue in a previous thread, but some continue to misunderstand.
I NEVER said I had anything against the female audience watching Shonen and Seinen Action Anime. I have watched my fair share as a woman. However, watching Anime specifically meant for the female audience would be a nice break from always watching male-centric Anime.
Shonen and Seinen Action Anime are specifically for the male audience. I feel some Shojo and Josei Anime titles should be added to Adult Swim. In addition to the last topic, I mentioned that having the "Toonami" branding on Adult Swim, limits the Anime genre to only Action Animation.
Anime in Japan is NOT limited to Shonen and Seinen Action yet in America, this is the only genre Anime companies want to market, which is specifically meant for the male audience.
Shojo and Josei Anime supposedly do poorly in American sales. I believe this is because the female audience is barely acknowledged.
American companies and the media with their political propaganda brainwashed American Anime fans into believing, that everything is "gender neutral." In reality, everything is NOT "gender neutral."
We're watching Japanese Entertainment, which is a part of Japan's culture.
They are labeled Shonen, Seinen, Shojo, and Josei for specific reasons. Shonen and Seinen are specifically meant for the male audience. Shojo and Josei Anime are specifically meant for the female audience.
Although, it's not like heterosexual males and females as well as the GLBT community don't watch each others Anime besides Shonen and Seinen Action.
Speaking of Seinen Action Anime, 2 weeks ago, 1 male poster complained about Black Lagoon. The series is specifically meant for men, but it mostly has women as leading characters in a male Action Anime. I love watching Black Lagoon regardless of the characters' genders.
Hellsing Ultimate OVA Trailer
Hellsing Ultimate happens to be another Seinen Action Anime, which is Black Lagoon's replacement. The Hellsing franchise is Seinen Horror Action.
Overall, my main point is that Shonen and Seinen Action fans aren't the only Anime demographics in existence.
There are Comedy, Romance, Mystery, Supernatural, Horror, etc. Anime for both genders. People with little knowledge about Anime only know what the networks expose them to on TV. They are mostly exposed to Shonen Action.
I understand why Adult Swim's forum has such a high turnover with posters in general. The slightest topic about anything gets derailed into an argument and veteran posters are notorious for running away new posters.
Who wants to deal with that unnecessary drama and dysfunction? I have too many things to do in very little time to do them in.
Since Halloween will soon be approaching, today, I have the pilot episode of the Hell Girl Anime. You can learn more about Hell Girl in my Horror Anime Review. In case you missed my Horror Anime Review from March 2nd, you can read it in the link below. It's above the link to Hell Girl.
Let me know what you think!
