totally agree, and there is also those nuclear explosions.... Anime is the least of their worries right now, sometimes i feel that people now a days are more worried to talk about japan's economy etc.. like, I open the news and instead knowing if they are still with food problems, transportation, and how are they dealing with this bbc tells me about economy rebound!! wtf?! When people are going to start to actually worry about how are they right now, this is quite sad.
So feelings is something people just wanna know if they are the ones created in the anime because it's fictional and when something like this happens we just pretend to be sad just because of the simulcasts...
great world we live.






Thank you both for your compassionate and sane logic here. There are families searching for their missing loved ones who either perished or were separated during this tragic disaster. It's sad and heartbreaking to read about the people who might be contaminated with radiation from the nuclear power plants exploding, the death tolls rising, people waiting for clean drinking water and food, rolling black outs...it's beyond the imagination. The images are just devasting and I tear up each time I see new images.

I think the simulcasts as noted by the two stated above can wait. Anime can always resume, lives cannot be replaced.

glad to hear news from japan even thought it's not the greatests news.
i can't be much help from here in Brazil [we have a lot of places were people face this problem (lack of water) daily which i think is pretty ironic considering the country i live have the most amount of water in the world...but this is part of a creepy world problem.] i can't imagine how is like to be in your situation right now but i'm wishing for better days to come.

i'd just like to add, that I hope none of the staffers of the anime/manga were injured/went missing. would just lose it if Ikue Otani (pikachu's VA) got washed away D: we can only wait and see if the shows changed actors...i hope not though...MY THOUGHTS GO OUT TO JAPAN.

Some have aired, some will air soon, some will not for a while. I expect most stations do not have the staff to continue broadcasting news 24/7 for days on end. If nothing else, the news staff need to time to sleep and be with their families.

Not to minimize to impact of what has happened, but there is a huge difference between an "nuclear explosion" and an explosion (apparently caused by hydrogen gas from superheated water) in a nuclear facility. Keep in mind there are people reading this topic who have loved ones and friends in the affected area. This type of exaggeration could cause them unnecessary stress.



Sadly, Governor Ishihara in Tokyo took advantage of the tragedy to once again make an ass of himself:

He stated:


The identity of the Japanese people is selfishness. The Japanese people must take advantage of this tsunami as means of washing away their selfish greed. I really do think this is divine punishment.

Agreed. I think some people haven't actually read for themselves about what's happening, the true extent of the damage, and the increasing death toll... I normally avoid news like the plague due to my sensitivity but I've been keeping up on this. And I feel ill and depressed the more I read, I can't help imagining peoples feelings and pain, and I'm getting nightmares.
Read the news which is easily found via the link on the google main page, at the bottom it scrolls through articles. :(

I'm considering starting a collection to raise the money for a ticket to Tokyo so I can toss a pie in his face. I think I'll have it lettered 'DIVINE PUNISHMENT'.

What is up with politicians using the sorrow of others to score points for their particular pseudo-moral position? Don't they see how immoral they themselves become by doing this?

We all know by now Ishihara is stupid.I feel depressed at how bad things are over there.Doesn't help that your former/maybe future politician thinks you deserved it...

Also I know we won't get anime for a while and I understand,but some are put on the Tuesday slot(Gosick,Card Fight),I was just wondering if this is official or if they just got moved up?I'm actually surprised that some anime are getting broadcasted.

My wishes go out to my friends family who still haven't been found,my moms aunt who she can't contact and well everyone over there.

Man, why can't they send people over to help the relief?
Like there are SO many people who love Japan and their culture, and a lot of them are without jobs in the US.
Why not send them over to help?
Yes most would just VOLUNTEER (I don't need money, I just want to help) but even that would give them something to do.
I dunno, I have been looking but they have nothing about it around the net for people who need jobs going to Japan for help.

Send people over there, make sure they get back, and just have them help out! Its a relief people!

Amended:
The Red Cross has people going over there. As far as things are concerned, they should teach people then send them.
Obviously there is a need for trained people, we should train people to go over there to help.

We'll see what happens.

I wish I was able to go out there to help volunteer in any way possible, but can't afford to do so at the moment :(


This sums up many of our feeling about this tragedy.
I recommend Everyone check out the Japancast episode. It has some incredible before and after google shots and gives a good rundown of available sites to pitch in.

Does anyone here know when Beelzebub Episode 10 will be available for streaming?

By the way, Fairy Tail Episode 70 will be airing today, right?


From what I can tell:

Beelzebub - Didn't air after all.
Fairy Tail - Aired. The simulcast will still probably be delayed slightly...


CrunchyRoll released Fairy Tail earlier today, and it looks like Beelzebub Episode 10 won't be streaming until this Saturday.

In regards to the simulcasting, ANN's (Anime News Network) latest podcast discusses how Anime studios are being affected by this disaster: http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/anncast/2011-03-14. It is very informative and worth a listen. Short version: the rolling blackouts are going to be the biggest problem for the Anime studios. I hope Japan is able to bounce back, better than ever, sooner rather than later.
