First: In his evil priest outfit at the DAS 3rd Annual Halloween Minicon, 10/22/06.
Second: (Center, in black jacket) After the DAS Kanameiji Meeting
in Abington, PA on 3/30/07 waiting to eat at TGI Fridays.
Asian Cinema: I like Azyumi, Battle Royale, and Armageddon (Gordon Chan, though the Bruce Willis one was fun), and the Grudge is the scariest movie I have ever seen.
Thus, I would like this trend to continue rather than fall in to the trap of two-dimension characters into which so many American dramas fall.
Also, I think that fansubbers are very benevolent groups (if they count as an institution), and I applaud the Anime industry for, in general, permitting it to continue as long as the animes have yet to be released in the US (as opposed to the actions of the RIAA and MPAA in the US music and movie industries).
