The only problem I have is that we only have one ADA compliant dorm, and it only has one entrance with a ramp. If you were in a wheelchair, you'd have to go all the way around the building instead of being able to go into the closest door. Also, a lot of the older buildings haven't been updated ver...

Not all atheists: *hate Christians. Only those that claim to read the Bible more than they actually do. That is so funny because you can tell when they start talking and by how they act. I read, but I can't quote out verses with book and chapter and verse. I can tell you the location of it in my bi...

I gotta say, I completely admire anybody who can work with disabeled people (especially children), specifically severely disabled. I simply don't have the patience nor personal capacity to do so. I always find it amazing when I see a caring, nurturing, and patient special ed. teacher. Honestly, I c...

I completely agree with Rin. I've had many experiences teaching students who are disabled, either mildly or severely, and it's more than a joy working with them. They come to class with smiles on their faces, are more than happy to give hugs, and just for them to do something like play a game, throw...

Also about the waitress in Rurouni Kenshin with the southern accent, it might have been the dubbers attempt to capture a bit the original Japanese version of the waitresses character. In Japan much like the U.S Japanese has different regional accents depending on where you live just like we do. And...

What do you make of this?

Hey Everyone, Okay, this is how I stumbled onto this.

I really can't stand badly done Southern accents, and I've heard more of them in dubbed anime than I have anywhere else. The artist girl from Sailormoon is the worst example. Ugh. I know I'm digging this one up, but this is one of my biggest pet peeves. If they wanted, was her name Lori (?), to hav...

FLCL: It just felt like another fan service anime instead of something enjoyable (in my eyes). Elfen Lied: I like violence and I like gore, but that was a little too much for my tastes. Everything just felt unwarranted for the few episodes that I watched. Also, I really didn't need to see her naked...

Has anyone noticed now that if you go on any of the sites to buy anime (rightstuf, anime castle, ADV, etc....) you cannot find any Sailor Moon items? Even the dubbed versions!! Will they not release anymore for retail, I wonder?
