    The 501st was a USAAF unit though, and was a bomber unit in the Pacific theater. :p

    The 610th was only created during the Korean War. :p


    Anyway, I dropped it for the same reason I dropped High School of the Dead.

    I like them when they're the "main attraction" so to speak, like To Love-Ru for example. But not as a distraction.

    Hetalia axis powers is also an accurate depiction of WW2.

    It's usually historically accurate. Except for the fact that it also involves yaoi...

    Really love it how creative the word yaoi was made. Essentially it's the first syllables from each word that translates as "no peak, no point, no meaning"

    They're basicly cutting of all the buyers who are under 18.

    Reduced sales => Reduced employees => Reduced anime titles => Anime industry goes to hell.

    Expect Ghibli studio only titles or Disney Anime.

    I'm not saying Ghibli studio's anime and Disney cartoon are bad, but Anime is NOT Cartoon. :/

    Does anyone have the Spring 2011 line up?

    Also it seems that this new law that was passed might affect future anime titles....

    I don't see the problem. Putting manga with sexual content and nudity with the porn mags makes perfects sense. Photos or drawn, it's still porn.

    Madoka has started, it looks epic and it sounds epic too...
    If shafts does a good work, hardly other anime will be better this season...
    Unlimited Revolver works...

    The thing is, it isn't just manga with sexual contents... it included non-sexual one too.

    From what I am reading, the law does not call for that. That's the stores' fault in that case.

    actually... it is.

    anime = animation = cartoon.


    what you're attempting to say is "japanese anime isnt censored to such extremes as american cartoons"

    I know really well the term "anime".

    Cartoon is known as a form of entertainment for kids. What i'm trying to say is Anime desert a new term, not just cartoon.

    Search for anime shows a lot of sexual materials, but not for cartoon.

    One of the manga is about an elementary school girl; the manga is slice of life. However depictions of schools as well as school uniforms are also banned unless the manga becomes 18+. So a slice of life manga about an elementary school girl is now adults-only.

    Young Jump and Manga Home are now 18+.

    Although Young Jump is for "mature" audiences, they're mostly action or comedy (Gantz, Rozen Maiden are the more popular currently serialized ones). This is also where Elfen Lied was first serialized.

    Manga Home is a 4-koma (4-frames) usually featuring manga about family, home, husband and wife, parents and children, etc.


    EDIT: Wow, just noticed in the picture now. One of the manga is GIANT KILLING, which is actually about soccer (football). A sports manga is now 18+, which is quite confusing considering one of the "main" fans featured is a middle-schooler, (whose father is also a fan of the team) and who also happened to be playing for the club's "youth team". Oh and at the bottom, One Piece is beside some idol magazines. Luffy and some idol beside each other LOL

    i wouldnt even say that.

    I would say that anime is driven more to a mature audience, where cartoons are driven towards a younger crowd /w mature overtones.
