Months ago I found this interesting "little" site on the internet regarded towards anime. What I get is a LONG list of rules based on the things that happen in almost every anime series. Has anyone see this list yet?



I've posted this before somewhere on a thread. I felt it was better/easier to put this on my thread instead.
Excuse me for that. We can all discuss about the rules listened here. Choose which one you like or dislike and talk about it.
Thanks a bunches.

Number 3 got me thinking, would there be sound in space? Since there's not atmosphere would there be any way for the sound waves to travel? Oh God, I'll never sleep now.

sound as humans understand it would not exist in space. neither would explosions or fire. these all require oxygen.

however, there have been instances of magnetic waves brought back from space that had been converted to sound waves.

There damn needs to be! The list is too long and quite unquotable! That said, I'm not going to break down why some are super wrong...but only a few. And only because they're super wrong, not just kinda wrong.


*#80- Law of Stereotype Captain characteristics- If a captain of any type of ship is
male, he will invariably wear a big captain’s cap, a long overcoat, and have a
shaggy beard and mustache (pipe optional), and be a great tactician. If the captain
is female, however, she will invariably be young, well endowed, and ditzy as a pole
(horny father optional). Yet, she too will be a great tactician.


Counter argument - Bright Noa

Bright Noa. No cap, overcoat, beard, or sideburns. He's the first, and most famous Captain from the Gundam franchise. He's also absurdly sexy, and scores all the bitches. After he got married he only got more bitches, thats how amazing Bright Noa is! Of course...this is a space ship we talking about...no, it counts. Every other Gundam Captain? Falls under this law, unfortunately.


*#98- Law of Stereotype Crew Characteristics

Original Gundam's crew uses 3 of the 7, but that's not all 7! Damn, OG Gundam is on a roll!


*#79- Law of Martial Arts Training Invulnerability- The Myth that certain martial
arts will enable you to become so strong, that you can stop a nuclear warhead with
your bare palm. Unfortunately, for most otaku, they found the hard way that it just
doesn’t work in real life..

This one has more to do with Japanese Culture. They tend to look at things from a growth mind set ,while the west is more concerned with "doing the right thing"
Does Superman need to train to use his powers? Or does he have to use them right?
Does Goku ever think if Cell's evil? No, bug-man is evil. Do 100 Pushups, kick his ass, in that order.
That one isn't wrong...I just like reminding everybody about the cultural difference here....

Last one I swear


+#63- Law of Needs to Few and Many- The needs of the many, outweigh the needs of the
few... of even the one


THAT'S A STAR TREK QUOTE, YOU CHEATIN!

Those rules have been around for nearly twenty years. I first saw them posted somewhere at LEAST 15 years ago.


Just re-read them. If you read closely you can see references to Ranma 1/2, Macross and maybe something as new as Martian Successor Nadesco. Not that it's relevant I geuss. but it was a nice trip down memory lane.

It's odd to think the anime made today is probably made by animators who grew up watching the anime that inspired that list.


I bet some of the rules have been deliberately violated in the current generation.

Most impressive thing about the list is the titles.
