In an effort to build cultural awareness...scratch that, I'm just posting this because I found it neat, here's the POCKY SONG as "Pingu the Great" posted:

The Pocky Song!

Chorus
Oh! We all love our Pocky!
We eat it all day long!
And when we eat our Pocky,
We sing this little song!

Verse 1
I love all kinds of Pocky,
Almond, Milk and Straw-ber-ry!
But my favourite kind of Pocky,
Is Pocky inside me!

Chorus
For, we love eating Pocky!
And yes you must agree!
That life without our Pocky,
Could simply just not be!

Verse 2
My friends all love my Pocky,
They think it's theirs for free,
I hit them with my hammer,
And then it's all for me!

Chorus (sweatdropping)
Yes! We love eating Pocky!
Those little bits of glee!
For when we buy some Pocky,
Life then seems so free!

Verse 3
My Mom took all my Pocky,
She says it's bad for me!
She met Mr Hammer,
And stays away from me!

Chorus (bulging eyes, wavering voices)
Oh! We really love our Pocky,
More than life it seems!
For when we go to bed at night,
Pocky's in our dreams!

Verse 4
Hey! Pocky's not for losers,
But for genki bods like me!
And if you diss my Pocky,
I'll nail you to a tree!

(general stampede as chorus runs off)

It's all right, the problem is they'll watch that and refuse to watch any of my anime or other Japanese programs (BTW, the Japanese have some really...er...interesting game shows :p).

> You can't expect your parents to like Love Hina, can you?

Like I'd show them THAT first. Gee, why not something more congenial like Urotsukidoji. -_-

I was talking more about shows with wider appeal like Samurai X or Princess Mononoke or Escaflowne.

It was the fault of the storytellers, because I didn't like Akira's ending either. Let me put it another way. Urotsukidoji is extremely weird even by Lainish standards.

Of course they're considered anime. Not good anime, but still anime. I have ambivalent feelings about series like Pokemon. While it's accessible to quite a few (mostly young) people, they tend not to go past that stage and discover much better anime series. It's kind of like how most people who see FotR will not actually READ FotR (which is definitely a tragedy).

I'll admit I personally bought another set of the trilogy because of the movie (BTW, they have some really neat covers with ties to the movies), but I personally suspect fewer NEW readers will be brought by the movies. I hope I'm wrong, but that's my suspicion. In this case, however, I was only using that as an analogy, because, as we've already noted, the book is better than the movie (sheesh, LotR IS the "book of the millenium," after all).

Well, the previous set I had had only a ring for the artwork, so it was a significant improvement. BTW, congrats on the 1000, even if quite a few people have made it that far. Now shoot for 2000. ;)
