Re: Yuri and Yaoi

Yeah, MLP Yuri is pretty much fandom only. I've heard good things about SU, but the fandom has admitedlly put me off from being super interested until the hype cools down (plus I don't know if there's anywhere I can watch in on mobile).

Re: Yuri and Yaoi

The cars do actually mean something as Utena was Anthy's ride out of Ohtori.

That said if you all haven't the TV series you need to, as its the best version of Utena IMHO.

Re: Yuri and Yaoi

I haven't seen any Ikuhura stuff other than Utena, but let me tell you that series is life changing. By far, one of the most important anime series of all time. Its definitely a very cerebral watch, but highly worth it IMHO. That said you absolutely have to watch the entire series to get the most ou...

Re: Yuri and Yaoi

Considering how many yaoi characters just look like flat chested women that supposedly have penises, I'd say being turned on by yaoi isn't necsesarily something that invalidates being primarily attracted to women. Heck, i think one of the factors that helps fuel the misogyny of some crazy yaoi fangi...

AmuroNT: I remember Scott McNeil being at AWA, however I never got the chance to see his panels. That's appauling to hear what happened at that one, though. I would've probably punched one of those girls doing that nonsense. I absolutely think that a huge chunk of UC fan disdain has its origins with...

Re: Yuri and Yaoi

Yep, their was actually this one girl who ran a terrible Gundam Wing fanfic site back in the day who was a bit notorious for always going on about how she thought m/m relationships were the only "pure" type of relationships. She actually banned fics that contained most het pairings from the series, ...

Re: Yuri and Yaoi

Thing is I was actually personally involved in various yaoi forums and such, and I can tell you a disturbingly large percentage of the active posters were like that. When it comes to actively participating in yaoi fandom sane fans are surprisingly rare, probably because the sane fans either don't po...

Re: Mayfly of Space 2 Picture Drama announced

As a massive Cima fan, I gotta say this is pretty exciting. Definitely looks to be more interesting than Battlefield in the 3rd Dimension (the short from the 08th box set, which while cool and gave the Gouf flight type some love was pretty lacking in the department of doing anything interesting with...

Re: Yuri and Yaoi

To be fair, a lot of yaoi fans at least on the US end get up to some pretty ugly stuff. I already mentioned that the misogyny that goes on in yaoi fandom would make even the most misogynistic gamer dudebro blush (no lie, I've seen people whose dA galleries consisted of nothing but badly draw bishone...

Re: Yuri and Yaoi

Just looked up what the glowing invisible penis yaoi series is, its called Level C. From the sounds of it its a really terrible series, but possibly hilariously so. I'm gonna check it out on an evening when I have alcohol and nothing better to do. There's actually a yaoi series with mecha called Leg...

Re: Gundam Mega Marathon

Is disliking Char gonna get people labeled a heretic? My experience with the western fandom seems to be that many have a backlash against popular Zeonic characters (I know I've seen quite a few even blast people who like Zeon suits over others.) Though take into account my experience with western f...

Re: Yuri and Yaoi

I haven't seen Macross Frontier or Tiger & Bunny so I don't have opinions on those characters. I remember hearing speculation that Fire Emblem was non-binary, but I haven't seen the series so I have no opinions either way. I've pretty much given up on finding good yaoi series, both due to lack of in...

Re: Yuri and Yaoi

While I don't know much about comics, from the sounds of it there's a lot of tokenism going on with those characters. IMHO, token "representation" is worse than no representation at all since it presents a shallow, stereotyped, and highly unrealistic version of whatever minority. Of course it can al...

Re: Yuri and Yaoi

I've heard nothing but bad things about Junjo Romantica from reliable sources. I hear even for yaoi its bad, and is really awful on the front of glamorizing abusive relationships. You might as well just watch 50 Shades or Twilight. One thing I wish more fanfic authors would do is acknowlege bisexual...

Re: Yuri and Yaoi

I disagree, I think yaoi is more disrespectful. The genre used to be better, for example in the 70's things like Kaze to ki no Uta treated serious issues like rape and child molestation with respect and didn't glorify them, however these days you'd be hard pressed to find yaoi that doesn't glamorize...

Re: Yuri and Yaoi

I had my yaoi phase as a dumb kid (there are people here who witnessed it firsthand, trust me when I say it was awful for every one) but with maturity I've since lost interest and actually gained a lot of disgust for the genre and fandom. The yaoi genre, as defined by male/male stories written by an...

Trust me, if there's any CCA opinion you're gonna get blasted for, it's NOT hating Quess. EDIT: I assume I'm that one person ShadowCell is talking about. I'm not actually the only person in the English Gundam fandom who likes Quess (there are a few of us actually, we almost have a little support gro...

Re: Rape scene in 08th MS Team

I know the novels have a backstory for Ghinius (namely that he suffers from radiation poisoning from an explosion at age 12), but I too would love more info on Yuri in the novels.

Re: Gundam Villains - Who Can Be Saved?

Can't believe I forgot to mention Cima! Granted I'd say her status as a villain in the first place is somewhat debatable, as she might fit better as an antagonist/antihero thing. Gato maaaaybe, though you'd have to get him to stop being such a raging Giren fanboy (something I'm not sure is possible).
