Lynzee Loveridge passive aggressively trying to start shit with Todd again.

Apparently Todd also told her she was unfit to be a journalist because she was too biased due to her being a feminist. Hello, Based Department?

Good lord, these people are pathetic in every sense of the word.

Lynzee, people won't do interviews with you because you are an activist pretending to be a journalist. For example, see how you say that someone won't do an interview with you, and for the reason why you put quotes around the feminist part but not the sexual assault victim. That shows me that the person never referenced your assault, but you lump that in as if it was a reason.

Seems like Todd is the next target if they fully win against Vic. ANN loonies were a mistake and I'm glad their lolcow thread is accelerating toward AWL and Cucksment levels of content.
Poor Todd had receipts and the public disregarded them due to the fact that Pridemore cried wolf. People and her friends in the industry took her side. Believe all women and ignore the evidence. Glad to see he had the balls to stand up to these fearmongers.

*UPDATE*
As for the Yasuke anime, people on ANN are calling out LeSean Thomas for taking the kickstarter money and not following through with backer rewards.

What's this? LeSean is grifting people?
I thought ANN didn't like grifters?

Nagatoro’s friends are actually awesome, and quite frankly that thumbnail he used makes me like the orange/red head a whole lot more.

Nigga says he makes anime for casuals and not for hardcore anime fans, yet he moved to Japan just to make his shows. At least he knows that anime is made mostly in mind for Japanese audiences.

I'm sure that your kurojin samurai mecha anime is better than Demon Slayer or Attack on Titan.

Yasuke being like by casuals won’t really mean much, since if he’s talking about anime fans being black, I wonder if he’s aware that people would rather watch Samurai Champloo over this.

>an active bias against feminists
I’m not sure what any of this has to do with being a journalist writing about anime for a living, but hey, whatever makes you sleep better at night :story:

Only the ones where they can’t dictate what type of fan service is “problematic” while protecting the rights of fictional 15 year olds in an isekai anime that they skimmed over while searching on Twitter.

I'll give LeSean at least one point for creating new heroes and new settings. He's not race-swapping existing characters and patting himself on the back like what's going on in the US comics scene.

And on topic, ANN still sucks.

Black people can't even make decent rap anymore. What hope does he have of making a good anime? Also, I hear that the "anime" was bad. Did they at least show the Japanese trying to wash the black off of the guy because they didn't think it was real? The guy wasn't even a true samurai or that good of a fighter.

I'd rather watch something on Benkei collecting peoples swords before he met Yoshitsune.

Well the only real review I could find was on YouTube:


It has been out for three days, but the comments section couldn’t tell if this were a sci-fi anime, a mecha anime, or a “Afro Samurai” ripoff.

Which is really weird. Was the first black samurai in Japan not a compelling enough story to tell? You needed giant robots to make it interesting?
Thing is though the actual story of the black guy wasn't that interesting. He wasn't a good fighter and was eventually captured and given back to missionaries to continue to live out his days as a slave. His only characteristics was that Oda Nobunaga thought he was interesting (because they've never seen dark skinned people before) and given some land. That, and given to Oda Nobunaga when the missionaries noticed that Oda Nobunaga found him interesting and wanted his good graces. Then again Oda Nobunaga was interested in European culture and customs. You could have given him a red headed concubine and get the same result.

Without that happening I doubt Oda Nobuhide would have turned to Christianity too.

@ LeSean's Kickstarter: Well Lynzee DOES have a point here, I can believe it.

Regarding rewards unfulfilled, I checked the KS, apparently people were still ranting about no artbooks (among other things) as recently as a month ago. Also, just a thought. If you took $150k for a kickstarter that basically never happened and then got a Netflix deal, couldn't you either make good on what was offered or just refund all the backers? I don't know what he was paid, but it seems like NetFlix could and would be able to eat an extra $150k (or less, depending on the actual cost of fulfilling everything) if they really liked his stuff.

I love how there's a somewhat legitimate article that's only tainted with the least bit of white weeaboo off brand processed soy substitute, but the forums aren't going on fire, and the first post that the article has gotten is "Itano is a jew hater".

This is what ANN is really like when the consuum switch is off. Sorry Jonny, but you'd be better off making your own anime blog than posting your stuff on ANN.

I'm just focused on the sidebar feed.

The ANN Aftershow? It's a YouTube podcast they've been doing for a while as ANNCast's successor (that ended when Zac passed away because they felt it was his thing and couldn't be without him). Focuses on the hosts discussing the latest episode of whatever shonen bigdog is currently airing (was AoT, now MHA), presumably because that's what gets YT views, though they do also talk a bit about whatever major anime news has came up. Hosts are Lynzee, that Jacki they have in charge of a videos, and a third guy (was James during AoT, for MHA he was replaced with some YouTuber that isn't an ANN employee).

Megazone 23 sounds like something I could get into, since I think the same people that did this also did Angel Cop. Still, I’m not sure how you can compare something like that to a more mainstream level anime like Evangelion.

Most of ANN’s fans only think Evangelion is 2deep4u and won’t touch something like Megazone 23.
