    Eh. Sailor Moon. Used to watch it with my sister as mentioned in the other thread; Always throught it would make for a hilarious combination with Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei humour. The canadian artist Dan Kim likes to play with it's memes too... I guess that makes Reg a proxy fan?

    Dude, totally. Anna and I go waaaaay back. In fact, my sister's middle name is Anna (true story.)

    Nah, I'm stupid, I meant 4 decades...40 years. This is why my attempt at being an enviornmentalist failed...I suck at math and numbers in general. I just trust others to figure crap for me right...it's not a fun way to go through life...


    @ Reg: So, what's this Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei you speak of? And do you have any examples of these Sailor Moon memes?

    SZS is a really bizzare high school-type anime with alot more 'teen guy humour' (randomness, violence, lewdity) than average, and creepy-cute style animation to boot. Swaps genre pretty much every episode, and in perticular there was one about a magical girl armed with a shovel... I digress, through, since it's not really for everybody...

    Anyway. As for memes, I guess I'm just trying to say that all the standard characters and cliches are just begging to be used for a story in a differant genre; Lovecraftian horror, gumshoe detective story, gritty western... :333

    Oh it is Seeing as how it keeps coming up everywhere. And Sailor Moon/Dragon Ball Z crossover hentai seems to be popular (though I never could see why.)

    Also they are both - at least in the West - the most famous examples of their respective genres. Also while there were shounen fight manga/anime before DBZ, and there were, arguably, magical girl anime before Sailor Moon (although Cutey Honey is the Ur-Magical Girl I understand it is to Magical Girl what Gigantor is to giant robots - the prototype but not the first "true" example) these two really established and/or codified a lot of - if not the majority of - the tropes that define these genres.

    Haha - np! Gotta share the good news, you know? :3

    ANN's a cinch if you sign up for their RSS feed and just scan the titles. It makes life easier cuz, yeah, looking through their homepage is kind of a chore. =_=

    Anyways, on to text some friends with the news. Huhuhuuuu~
