Fuck you, I'll post what I want where I want, If I want to know what my fellow gamers like I'll ask it if I damn well please. 
"Anime for jerks." is a tagline for douchebags.

Your logic is remarkable. So, in your opinion, any thread that has to do with technology, comic books, movies, tv shows or anime should not be on Giant Bomb? Rather, they should be posted on the respective Whiskey Media sites? How smart.

I agree.  Very poor image choice for an article about the community.  Surely they could have picked a more, erm, tasteful(?) image for their "bulging" pun.

Eh, that's what happens when the inmates run the asylum as they say. Can't blame them for advertising to their own audience either.  
 
I'm not quite horny enough to look up hentai as a result, but those responses made me laugh haha.

There's a difference between being rational and not turning a blind eye to the things that make anime awful while at the same time recognizing the great shows that anime provides and being one of the idiots who just hates on a whole medium just for the sake of it and senselessly repeats "anime is for jerks" because they can't make any intelligent argument for their baseless hatred of the entertainment medium.  
 
Those who claim all anime is wonderful and is a piece of art are also different but, honestly, I've never seen a person who could make such a claim.

But if they are "advertising to their own audience" then why use that image? The header at the bottom is used to share content from all the whiskey sites to all the other ones, so I think using a tamer image would have been more  appropriate for something thats going to be seen company wide.

You didn't describe the reason Anime Vice is terrible, you described the reason the Eastern world needs to stop their shit and grow up, and why I hate Anime so goddamn much. Full of disturbing levels of sexism, racism, and stereotypical bullshit.

Alright, I may be part of this so called "Anime Defense Force", even though I like to think of it as being rational, as I can't find it in me to ignore this comment. Can this not be applied to video games as well? Or really, can it not be applied to books, movies or tv shows? An entertainment medium is vast. Most of them are composed of the things you described but, like any, they have the quality work that people support and enjoy. I don't understand why anime is practically the only one of these mediums that is regarded as general trash when it has a comparable ratio of garbage to quality work as video games do.

Yeah you're probably right there, but at least this way we get to scrutinize the site more. My dream is that it disappears forever, so I'm guaranteed to have both Tested and Screened down there at all times, those are the WM sites other than GB I use, so that's just wishful thinking.

Anime Vice: Keeping it classy and reinforcing negative stereotypes about the audience since 2009. 
 
Also, everyone who just got offended by every use of "Anime is for Jerks" has been successfully baited. Yeah, it's old and not especially funny anymore, but getting super defensive about it makes you look like an ass.

Anime Vice pictures never have anything to do with the article. 
 
Also, Mr OP hates everything anyway, so i'm not suprised.

There's been a massive clean-up of that type of content since then.  When it comes to pornographic images, AV is about on par with Giant Bomb now.

This is not true, just because I don't like a few thing you like doesn't mean I hate everything. If it was I'd be bitching about the mere inclusion of the header at the bottom, but I think it's great. So your logic fails.
#88 Edited by DaveD (11 posts) -

I'd like to note that it's totally possible to have sexy anime chicks that aren't like, misogynistic High School of the Dead female caricatures. The ad isn't weird because there's boobs on it.  The ad is weird because it's exploitative and dumb and it's from a show that's exploitative and misogynist and dumb.

I'm not sure many people in this thread knew that the ad's picture was from High School of the Dead or even cared. I know I didn't know what anime the image was from.

I've yet to see a post where you have NOT complained, whined or hated or something. They seriously make up 90% of your posts. Not that i'm complianing about them, half the time they're warranted, and at least 1/4 of them are amusing comments.

I clicked on the thing on the bottom for Anime Vice once, and it was because it was a story about the next season of Avatar the Last Airbender. But while I was at the site, I felt lost and out of place, didn't stay there for long at all.

Your right, there is no point. I almost forgotten that most of the user population at Giantbomb are Jeff Gerstmann dick riders. 
Oh yeah, i stereotyped...makes a change doesn't it.

#97 Edited by bybeach (4976 posts) -

I saw it and laughed a little, jeez. In fact i went to the site and wanted to post about something growing on those poor ladies upper chest. And that they do look pissed about it, but I couldn't see where that post would fit. 
 
Fact is, I know what some of you are saying, but that  drawing isn't very sexual. I think it was used in fact because it was not, despite the blatancy. Where the hell are the nippless? Boobs do serve a function besides turning guys on(or pissing them off) 
 
Anime does seem sexually charged. it's when it uses young girls(really young) that creeps me. You find yourself saying wait, and then feeling fairly aweful. there was a cartoon series, anime, years and years ago about an intergalactic sentient inteligence that spread by rather fleshy oddly shaped  flowers speading seed and such. One charactor included was this very young girl, single digits age, who at one point you can plainly see her..well not neccessary. And of course all the chicks were a bit exposed. Not that we arn't born with one version or the other, but that was a wierd anime series..

#100 Posted by sgt_match (121 posts) -

Um... yeah... sexy ladies exist in Anime.  I think the criticism is a little bit narrow-minded.  Some things just happen to be an aspect of a medium.
 
To be fair, though, Screened and GB tend to avoid those topics directly, usually dealing with them in a humorous fashion, not that they should take them head on.
 
I guess I am saying, chill, dude, you can handle an ad on the bottom of the page.
 
Also, GregD, I don't care about your porno habits.  Chill out with that on Giant Bomb.
