What an ass... and technically, Belldandy is WAY older than the guy in Oh My Goddess... I think the example they should have used would be Kite. That is one disturbing anime... but its not for kids! Geeze...

Yeah, its a joke. If you take the time to look at all the signatures, they're all making fun of the guy and telling him he's a complete moron. Won't George Bush be happy when he see's this comment.
"821. ANIMEFAN Who ever started this, is cleary a fucking idoit. Thank you and for the record. There is more trash on US cable then there is on Anime. SIncerely, someone thats not a fucking retard."

Don't worry about it, anybody who actually finds it will be smart enough not to take it seriously.

Don't ban the content, ban the style.

I loathe those eyes and chins and shortcuts . . . gad. Give me lame Tom and Jerry chase scenes any day, but leave the stagnant image on a moving line-only background out of my line of sight!

There are idiots in the world? WOW! What a surprise!

Seriously, no one's going to take the crackpot seriously, especially with the 1st Amendment in place.

Ah, so young and full of optimism, yet to be corrupted by the cold harsh reality of the world.

Yes, there are idiots in the world. And unfortunately, there are a lot of idiots. But some of these idiots also happen to have money and influence in political matters.

Beware of stupidity.

Actually, Clinton already did it... he's the one who did the defense of marriage thing originally... never heard any bitching back then... just against the "redneck."

yeah the doma also ticked me off but the fact that the radical right wants to actually amend the consitution astonishes me. but this is a forum for anime so I'll get off my soapbox.

George Bush will save the country in his own language, be it in French, German, or Mexican!

Is it me, or dose this guy seem more than a little racist against Japan?

That aside, saying we should ban Anime is like saying we should ban art. There are so many different kinds that you cant possibly say all of them are bad. I don't think anyone will argue the fact that there are some animes that are, shall we say "inapropriate for younger viewers," but you can't ban them all based soley on the few that this guy dosn't like.

Another part of the problem comes from the common assumption that all anime is for kids. Only a moron would let their kids watch some of this stuff, but not all fo it is ment for children. There is a great deal of anime targeted toward a mature, adult audience, and is made accordingly. This is the same prople we saw when the "Comic Book Code" was created. Yes, some anime is not apropriate for children, but it was never ment to be seen by children in the first place. It's like complaining that an R rated movie was not "kid freindly."
