    Hey, my name is Shawn Mitchell. You can call me what you like. I like anime, writing, music, rapping, doodling, and web design. All the goodies!

  1. 'allo. Since there's already a thread here.... I didn't want to repost it, and my question was already asked in my previous reply. Does anyone have an answer?
  2. I did a brief search and didn't really find anything that addressed my question directly. The Initial D topic that I did find discussed the fourth stage, and this simply discusses an issue with the first one. I recently bought vol. 1 for the first time, excited that the back on the description said 150 minutes time. Unfortunately, when I w atched it, I was disappointed to find no more than 75 minutes or so of anime. Am I watching it wrong or what?
  3. Ohhh, I loved that show. And I had the "Spider" one. I always used to get up early in the morning to watch that show. Question - which came first Mighty Max or Polly Pocket?
  4. I spend about 20 bucks every week... I recently just spent 60.00 on Ebay. Basically however much I have, minus 15 dollars for other expenses. There's no anime places around here, so I have to go online. >_<
  5. I like rap. There's a lot of artists I don't like, so I stick to the underground stuff. [url]www.soundclick.com/myst[/url] is my own rap! I suck though. >_<
  6. X the movie... I liked it. I liked the drama, and found the effect of it to be very saddening. I wasn't for the sounds, I don't know exactly how to explain it. It felt kind of... empty. But I still like it. One of my friends watched it, and didn't like it too much. She has the series, and while she liked much of it, she said she's not sure if she's going to go on into it.
  7. Thanks! I don't think saying that "Anime is revolutionizing American culture" is vague. Because revolution, itself, is so broad. I do, however, agree with what you were saying in the "intellect" field. BUT. I can still say it. Because the titles you referred to, aren't shown in America. They're still considered "Underground". 50% of the animes that are shown in America DO boost intellect though. From Bebop to Kenshin, we have gained different philosophies and historical knowledge. True, the other 50% is made up kid animes such as Medabots and Digimon. But, that's not to say they still don't help the process along with their target audience. The subject of addressing, is simply anime and culture. Since the day of Osamu Tezuka, so many artists have went of what he started. It's like Shakespeare. He carved drama. Then, other playwrites began to carry on his legacy, in the process of making his own. The same can be said or Osamu Tezuka. He's an inspiration for artists that are making landmarks in the US right now, like Akira Toriyama. And although anime is a big and broad subject, this paper is a 5 page report. It isn't an essay, which I think is the common mistake. It's a "term paper". We have to use the MLA, and blah, blah, blah. Anyway, thanks! Lots of help. ^_^
  8. Hi, Well, I'm beginning to write a term paper for my English class. :o And I'm writing about how "Anime is in the process of revolutionizing America." So I'm trying to find different angles. I want to compare Osamu Tezuka, to Shakespeare, and how they both created something that was influential on today's culture. I also want to analyze how anime has increased the mainstream market value. But, I still feel like I'm lacking certain perspectives to add versatality. I would REALLY like to go into how anime is a huge boost of intellect. Naturally, this is very subjective - so how would go about it? We're allowed to cite our opinions, but we can't go into first person. Also, my friend who is sitting next to me as I type this, is doing his term paper on Akira Kurosawa, and how he has influenced the process of film making... So if anyone can help him out, that'd be cool too. ^_^
