As obliged to, i did a search for this topic, and i don't think i found one already. But if there i don't mind if this get deleted.

Anyway on to the topic now.. Have you ever read a post here by some user that leaves you all.. "omg, that's so true". Have you come across a meaningful post on here before? Have you ever read a post here that enlightened you in any way? Any post with words that moves you? Or the one you just think so plain damn funny?

If so, then post it on here on this Crunchyroll's best post award thread. Include which thread that the post were from, and also why you think it's good etc etc

Well then... let the nomination begin.

I'll start first...

note: this is from the thread called Fictional love = Real Life love?.. about wheter love and romance in real life looks like the one in tvs

I call this the "female syndrome". To explain a little bit further it's a little like this. Females tend to watch an absurd amount of dramas/movies/animes relating to romance. Then they take the information found here and compare it to their lives. Should their lives not match up (and they never will) they proceed to wonder why. They then poke and prod their relationships in an effort to get them to work like they saw on television. This is an effort in futility and it ends up driving guys insane. It's kind of like watching Rocky I, II, III, IV, and V and then assuming all boxing matches are a toe to toe slug fest. There are moments and days where something will happen that is close to an on screen moment. Sometimes a guy will take your breath away or a girl will stop you in your tracks with a smile. For the most part though fictional love is just that fictional, directors, writers, and artists take the most beautiful moments they can think of and throw them together in a combined effort to make every girl on the planet think her guy is failing her in some way.


i thought this was really good becoz... it's so damn true > <

Sorry, its a bit of a long quote...

No ones a stranger to this. Over zealous fans have murdered anime. Here are some examples

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya
I completely loved this anime. It was completely unique and beautiful from the art to the script. It easily became one of my favorites. However, when fans started screaming Haruhi in my ear, it soon became annoying. The more and more zealous they became, the more I realized that it wasn't as great as I thought it to be.

Death Note
The fans literally raped the shit out of this one. I liked Death Note, but it really didn't make me think like many other anime have. Despite the maturity and complexity of the plot, it really wasn't that hard to understand. I never really thought of it as AMAZING. I still loved it, but then came the fans. Claims of being the best anime ever made kept ringing in my ear. People saying, "Do what I want or I'll write your name in my Death Note" because really retarded. Fangirls that love L who is basically a genius who has bad sleeping habits, enjoys sweets, and makes you wonder if he bathes.

Evangelion
A while back in this forum, you may have remembered a user named Lusulpher. I respected him for being intelligent enough to respond to a question...or at least how I remember it. However, we had a discussion about Evangelion and he just can't shut up about EVA. The truth is that EVA has been overanalyzed to hell and back. I told him that all the religous references were simply used for aesthetic and really gave no insight to the human condition. He strongly disagreed. He was so thorough at his analysis even I started to believe it. Then I came to the reality that no one is smart enough to make a story that intentionally had different meaning to people and consciously knew every meaning as they made it. He is not the only one to over analyze Evangelion. I can guarantee that EVA's meaning was different to almost every viewer that tried to look for religious fact. The true fact is that the Judeo-Christian references were just used to help progress the plot. If you don't believe me, then here's the proof.


Q) Is there religious meaning to Evangelion?

A) No. Evangelion is not, and never was a religious anime and does not contain any direct commentary on the world's religions. The Judeo-Christian elements it contains are simply plot devices used to convey the story. Nothing more.

The cross shaped explosions, the Kabalah, and all other references do have religious roots and do have relevance to Evangelion but it is very important to remember that Eva is a work of fiction and should not have it's symbols taken that seriously. I think that Mamorou Oshii (director of "Ghost in The Shell" and "Patlabor") described religious elements in anime best when he said "These are used as the prototype for the stories; not for religious reasons, but for ideology and literary inspiration".

Finally, at the Otakon anime convention held in 2001, assistant director Kazuya Tsurumaki (who was the director of The End of Evangelion: Episode 25' Air - while Anno personally undetook The End of Evangelion: Episode 26' Sincerely Yours and acted as Chief Director) was asked directly what relvance Christianity had to Evangelion. This was his reply:

Tsurumaki: There are a lot of giant robot shows in Japan, and we did want our story to have a religious theme to help distinguish us. Because Christianity is an uncommon religion in Japan we thought it would be mysterious. None of the staff who worked on Eva are Christians. There is no actual Christian meaning to the show, we just thought the visual symbols of Christianity look cool. If we had known the show would get distributed in the US and Europe we might have rethought that choice.


So, while Evangelion's basic plot elements are borrowed from some religious texts and myths, they merely act as inspiration for a different story. They are just there for aesthetics. Evangelion also borrowed several elements from earlier Tomino anime shows. Evangelion owes more to Ideon, than it does to Revelation.


I'm not telling you to accept EVA at face value. I actually found 4 levels of meaning in EVA and 3 I can say with confidence truly are themes of EVA. I just KNOW that EVA has been over analyzed to an extreme extent. That's why I don't trust fan commentary unless they own the Red Cross Book which is basically the End of Evangelion film program booklet. It has been called the Red Cross Book because of its appearance.

Naruto
I'm not completely sure if I would have enjoyed this anime in the first place, but I can say with confidence, that a lot of Naruto fans are REALLY annoying. I was watching Monster on youtube and me, being retarded as I am, read the comments. One of them said "Monster is the best anime EVAR" and then a reply to that was "HAHA no, but its good. Too bad but Naruto> Monster Naruto>>>>>>>>>>Every anime EVAR" I was stunned. Can you seriously say Naruto is better than Monster while watching monster? This comment was said well into the series as well. I wanted to barf. If that wasn't enough, I had a conversation with a friend of mine. I told him Naruto is overrated. He said, "You just have to see all the episodes." I told him that I did and then he called me a hypocrite. That is the most annoying thing about the fans. If I don't watch every episode, they will say I'm wrong and that I haven't seen enough episodes. I have seen all the episodes and because of it they all call me hypocrite because of it. Narutards have trapped me so that I can't be right, but I know I am.


Like you, I love this post and I think its the best because its 100% true. I was nodding and laughing the whole time I was reading this...

I have seen a lot of statements lately like "Bleach is a rip-off of Yu Yu Hakusho" and "Rahxephon copies Evangelion." N00bish comparisons like these are poorly said and proven by giving a bunch of random details that two anime have in common.
For example:
Naruto and DragonballZ
Goku is a carefree guy who doesn't care if someone is stronger than him unless that person threatens the people he cares about. Naruto strives to become the strongest to gain acknowledgement. They are both overrated anime, but that is all. Dragonball Z is merely waiting until shit happens and then stop that shit. Naruto has missions that he must fulfill while trainging to be stronger to become Hokage.
THE PLOTS ARE NOT SIMILAR AND THEREFORE NARUTO IS NOT A RIP OFF.

Bleach and Yu Yu Hakusho
Let's think. What was Yusuke's first case after he became spirit detective. He fought against Hiei to regain some stolen artifacts. What was Ichigo doing after he became a shinigami? Kicking random ass. How about after that. Yusuke went into a castle to kick some guys ass who was controlling these bugs that possess people. Ichigo was rescuing Rukia from Soul Society. If you think these plots paralell, then you must be on crack. There is no similarity between the two in plot.

Rahxephon and Evangelion
I'm gonna have fun with this. THE ONLY PEOPLE THAT SAY RAHXEPHON COPIES EVANGELION ARE THE LEGIONS OF PEOPLE THAT HANG ONTO EVAS BALLZ. Basically, the EVA equivalent to a narutard except with a better anime to hang onto. Rahxephon's plot was a war with the Mu after Ayato realized that he was isolated in a world that kept the outside world a secret. Evas plot was Shinji destroying the angels. They both go deeper than that, but their plots don't even come close to being parallel. People that compare these two are EVAs whores that watch one episode of Rahxephon and assume they understand the plot and conclude that Rahxephon is a rip off of EVA. I think EVA is the better anime, but Rahxephon too was a masterpiece. Everyone that says Rahxephon is a rip off is an asswipe who basically is trying to shit on the anime community because of their petty fanboyish nature.


this would be my nomination...one of the best I've read so far...

SO VERY DAMN TRUE... This person clearly understands how much the masses become inticed with fiction and fantasy and try to pointlessly incorporate it into their daily lives. I'm actually pretty ashamed that society as a whole is this shallow...
