    To Fan Service Or Not To Fan Service?

    Fanservice never really bothers me, but I can perfectly understand the sentiment of it being out of place in certain circumstances. At worst, I find it awkward or a bit unsettling at times. Honestly though, as strange as this may sound, the only times I ever really felt this way was in High School DxD. There's two things that are awkward to me. First of all, I don't know why, but I've always found the outtro with all the girls poledancing to be a bit creepy. Honestly. It just seems so... out there. I dunno. Maybe it's because it just doesn't make sense. I mean, the girls aren't strippers; you would never see them doing that (I don't think). The other thing is how in the fights the girls always get their clothes ripped apart, but the men (few as there are) seem to have their clothes unscathed. In this case it's really just the inconsistency of it that bothers me. If the girls are getting their clothes torn up in battle, it should be happening to the guys too. Holy crap that is hilarious. What is that even from?

    Wish granted, but...

    Granted, but everyone becomes so smart that they all go insane and start building weapons of mass destruction and blow each other up. I wish I could be one of Lina Inverse's comrades in the show "Slayers" and travel around with her on her adventures.

    Questions about "Monster" (spoilers)

    This still doesn't make sense to me because if he really wanted to erase all knowledge of his existence he would've wanted to kill Dr. Tenma and his sister as well, since they both knew so much about him; his sister at the very least, because he KNOWS that she knows everything about him, even if he doesn't know what Dr. Tenma knows. And then there was that therapist and criminal psychologist as well who had been both doing lots of research on Johann to exonerate Dr. Tenma, and even Karl and his father too.... really, there are still so many people left at the end that collectively know so much about Johann. But that doesn't even explain to me why he encouraged his sister to shoot him at the beginning of the show, unless he just knows what a horrible person he is and that's why he doesn't care at that point.

    Lostorage Wixoss dub??

    I think most people would agree that it's fairly common for the quality of a series to deteriorate over time, for different reasons depending on the show. As for Wixoss, I seem to remember reading that one of the key writers from the first two seasons wasn't involved in Lostorage, so maybe that has something to do with it. They really should've just left it alone. The story was complete.

    Questions about "Monster" (spoilers)

    So I just finished watching the anime "Monster" for the first time, and while I was pretty engrossed in it most of the time, now that it's all over I feel like I have a lot of questions. I understand this anime is very popular, so I figured it'd be easy to pull up some answers. My biggest questions revolve around Johan, which I guess makes sense, since he's kindof what the anime is about more than anything. I have a lot of trouble getting into the mind of Johan. People throughout the show seem to all have different ideas of what his "plan" is, but nobody seems to really know, except maybe Nina. As best I can tell, he seems to just want to kill lots of people and watch them suffer and be afraid. I think they pointed out more than once that he was very interested in fear. If that's his plan in a nutshell, then I don't understand why he wants to seems to want to die. And if he does want to die, why doesn't he just kill himself instead of waiting for Nina or Dr. Tenma to do it? I just don't get what he's thinking... Another point of confusion for me is when they very briefly suggested that Johan had two personalities; Nina yelled out to Dr. Tenma on the boat that "there are two Johans," and Dr. Tenma at another point also stated something like, "Johan has a split personality?" after seeing that "Help, the monster inside me has gotten this big (or something like that)," written on a wall or something somewhere. That was in the earlier half of the series, and it was never brought up again, so I'm really confused about what all that was really supposed to mean. There's one other thing on my mind, and it doesn't pertain so much to Johann, but to the police and their search for the murderer (who they think is Dr. Tenma). In retrospect, I really feel like it was kind of stupid that the police are so convinced that Johann doesn't even exist. I mean, all it would take would be a simple questioning of his sister Nina. For that matter, since she herself seems to be on this big quest to find Johann, as well as her memories, why doesn't she get the police involved too? She's not guilty of any crime (unless I'm forgetting something), and Dr. Tenma even saved her life early in the show if memory serves. Thanks in advance for any insight into these things

    Lostorage Wixoss dub??

    I've been on vacation and haven't had internet access for the last month. Because of the previous posts I decided to go ahead and just watch it subbed, and I agree with you, it is vastly inferior to the first two seasons. I think I'll just pretend that the first two seasons are the only ones that exist :D

    Lostorage Wixoss dub??

    So is there still no news at all about a Lostorage Wixoss Dub? I watched Selector Wixoss dubbed and loved it. I've been waiting for them to release a dub for Lostorage for a long time now. Any help or info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
