is the destiny of mankind controlled by some transcendental entity or law? is it like the hand of god hovering above? at least it is true that man has no control, even over his own destiny.

stuff

Question? Why are you showing K-On in the kids room? It's not exactly a kids cartoon(far from it actually).

And why show Zan for Zetsubou sensei. The series was never released in America, so wouldn't you want to show S1? If they're watching Zan, it assumes the watchers have seen S1/S2/OAVs prior so A LOT of the jokes as well as plot devices will completely go over the heads, to an already incredibly hard to understand series.

K-ON as kids anime... I think you should screen first before throwing stuff up.
 
In other news, scorching weather reaching 92 degrees to be expected...yay

well lets see here,
k-on in the kids and why
1. k-on is a popular anime and the time we plan on showing it most of the kids will have left (probly 4pm)
2. theres really nothing bad in the ser its a fairly innocent anime like lucky star

Zan for Zetsubou sensei why screen it
main reason the other ser to Zetsubou sensei have been out for a long time already. plus like you said Zetsubou sensei make no sence so what would showing it from the start make any sence for.

Here are some things why I feel that it should not be in the kids section, even if kids have left after 4pm. Ep1 has the DMC reference, although it's not particularly bad at all, it already sets the tone that they're making a ref on an anime that shouldn't even be near kids. There's always the popular Mio "exploitation" aka breasts, Sawako's crazy character, and pretty much generally every theme in the show no kid will get (because the moe stuff is generally an older person kind of thing.) I can go on, but I think you should get the point. And for the Zetsubou Sensei, then why show it if no one will get it? Get something else.

K-On isn't exactly innocent, but besides that point... it's not geared towards kids in anyway shape or form. The jokes and the appeal are very geared towards older teen men. It's a moe anime, in the same sense that Ichigo Mashimaro is. There's nothing directly bad, as in, there's no violence, sex, or the such... but the humor and mentallity are for an older group.

As for zZetsubou... you realize that you're basically saying. "Well the first series is kinda old, and no one is going to understand it anywas, regardless of what part of it we show, so who gives a damn what the audience watches, nor if they get it, can follow it, or anything at all.

You're telling the audience, you don't give a damn what they think, you don't give a damn what they might enjoy, and are putting up something because "you want to put it up" and for no other reason.

Why even bother showing it at that point? There's 39287429385798436 other things you can show, that the audience might actually understand, or even... enjoy?

Jerry... you ralize I'm friend's with a lot of staff... and posting on facebook about this isn't the most intelligent thing to do.

As for "when to" and when not to... this seemed more apparent that it was a time to.

I'm wondering more why you're so offended that I pointed out how your choices are rather flawed, unless you seem to be realizing that what I said is rather true, you really had no reason to be offended. But whatever.

And no, I'm not going to the fest tomorrow. Jun and I are going to visit my family this weekend. Feel free to take it up with Mizuki. I'm sure he'll take notes for me and he can reppeat it back to me later.

I will say this right here, right now, if this goes on and I have to start deleting posts or I have to lock this topic I will not be happy, as people are trying to get gathering info together, and PyronIkari for once is being nice for once. DON'T MESS THIS UP.

Hey, If everyone dosen't settle down... I'll get >:(

My words may not have much weight here... They may even fall upon deaf ears, but here it goes...

I'm not familiar with K-on or any of the other anime mentioned prior... I really haven't viewed a complete series since '85...  BUT, I don't want a repeat of what happened at last year's festival...  A mother dragged her two young kids out a video room showing Soul Eater... and she was a bit pissed that no one was watching the entrance and allowed her kids to watch the show...  I overheard her complaint (Cos-Play has it's advantages) last year and I did't take this complaint very well because it reflects upon the whole Japantown community. I reminded Chairperson Kathy S. about this 3 months ago, and suggested improvements... I see little/nothing has been done.  Otaku God, is the one overseeing the Video rooms, so he sets the programming...  One questionable video selection will not end the world...  What titles he selects to show reflects his judgement... What is allowed to be shown reflects the Festival Committee's judgement... The rest remains to be seen.

The Spirit of Japantown Festival is supposed to be a family oriented, community sponsored event and should be planned and executed as such... I spend the better part of the day interacting with children, families and tourists... This is what I do for the festival... I challenge others to help do the same in finding ways to give back to the community...

Now, since I've been looking forward to this event since New Years...  I'm going to enjoy it as much as I can... Because, who knows, I can lose my life at any time... And it won't come back like in all your Anime.

We'll definitely take a look and see if we have that in our current storage.  Hopefully, we'll be able to display the game during the show.  ^_^
