It's funny that this game was made because the Original series was too anime

I stuck with Bleach far too long after I should have. I just kept hoping that it would get good again and it was the only show on saturday that I had to look forward to :/


I quit watching Adult Swim on Saturdays pretty much when they got rid of Samurai Champloo and Trigun and Cowboy Bebop.

Always though it was stupid they got rid of those but kept crap like Inuyasha and Bleach forever.


To be fair, they'd been running Bebop for like.... I don't even know how long. Probably since it was called the Midnight Run (anyone else remember that?), although they would take a break from it every once in a while.

Any time someone tells me anime is all cheesy over the top action like DBZ or something, I point them towards Bebop. Bebop is (imo) the pinnacle of anime, so I like to go all out when proving those people wrong.

Id point them to something which only has action for comedy sake. School Rumble comes to mind.

Here's a little tidbit for everyone...my guess is, anime is based off of Americans. Yes, you heard right...er, saw right. :P Think about it. Who naturally has big, round eyes? Who has different colored eyes? Who has different colored hair? Americans. When Japan was still a hermit country and saw Americans (or it may have been Europeans) for the very first time, that's probably how they saw us, since the Japanese have naturally brown or black hair and thinner eyes.

But an actual Anime game sold 1.7 million in less time which is 500K more than this game sold.

The Game in question was Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 3, it's pretty funny when you think about it.


Naruto's fan base is huge, the game had hype and advertising, and it has online. I am not surprised at all it's beating DmC. I'd pick the game up myself if I didn't know it was unbalanced.

The stereotypical depiction of white Americans in Japan is that we have pasty skin, blue eyes and blonde hair.

"This is too anime" must be one of the dumbest phrases I have ever heard.

Didn't you find it strange that all most every the none discrepant white Americans form the Street Fighter canon all shared the same palette?

And it looks like there's a steady whiting of the cast over time.
