Me: So i hear Gainax liek controversys… … …
Gainax: OH YES I DO
Me: Well, I happen to have this Gurren-Lagann plush-
*watches in shock as Gainax raeps teh robot plushie
*backs off real slow into the toilet
2ch: GTFO FAG
Gainax: You otaku are smelly and dirty. I shall rape this robot plushie in from of your face.
Okay, so that a 4chanization of how the whole frikkin’ debacle happened. And I wished it happened that way. At least we’d all get some laughs out of it. Instead of this full-blown drama reassuring me that I would be better than that.
After all, Gainax is famous for trying to anger the fans. Just look at Evangelion. Depression or not, Shinji was made to ridicule otaku, episodes 25, 26 and the Eva movies were made to throw the fans into a frenzy of negative emotions, and now, this. Man, I would love to meet Anno. He’s like, the most awesome man in animation circles.
If this is what animé turns people into, I am very worried for the true fans. Not only because they have the possibility to turn into that, but also because of the backlash. (And this stems from personal experience.)
Also, a followup to come soon.
