Freedom to Read and Compare

Geez, guys, lay off Akiko. This past Kanon episode has caused the blogosphere to form two camps: those that believe that the crash was emotive and point to the real-life crash that everyone seemed to instantly find, and those that laughed at the crash because Akiko was crushed and "disappeared". I am planted firmly in the former camp and think the latter is just trying to get attention for contrariness, for the record, but honestly, this is getting out of hand. I'm almost missing the Nayuki conspiracy theories.

So I couldn't take it anymore and checked out the back covers of a few of the Galaxy Angel manga I'm missing (I never seem to get the right ones so I'm stuck on number four). Let me say that it's very apt that the anime was a parody of adaptation decay. If you don't want to be spoiled, skip to the next paragraph, but apparently Chitose comes in early, Eonia stays around through Moonlit Lovers and beats out the Val-Fasq conspiracy (which, I guess, is probably for the best because they cut out the entire Eternal Lovers arc), Chitose actually turns evil, and who knows what else. Am I buying it? Course I am! Especially since I heard the newly released GAII manga does the characters a lot of justice. A few of my friends that hated Rico on principle now love her to bits, so it can't be that bad.

Happy Freedom to Read Week! In celebration, read something that was banned for a stupid reason.

Um, the same can be said about literally anything. Theres always atleast two views on something that are the most prevalent. So complaining about "omg everyones doing this about Akiko" is just adding to the people in the annoying group of complaining about other people. As for the accident, from what ive seen (including in my own entry about it), while the disappearing magic act akiko pulls off IS mentioned, thats never the main argument about it being shitty. So using that like its the only thing, or even the main thing, people who didnt like the scene are using against it, is totally incorrect on your part =/

Thank you for the post. I Watch TV Shows Online on every weekend. And this is the best way and source to get all the missing episodes and watched them in better picture quality.
