Time for Utter Nonsense!

May 28th, 2007

You may have noticed that I’ve been doing reviews and posts something like 6 days a week recently. Or maybe you haven’t. But I have. :-) And now, I am tired. I am also beginning the last couple of weeks of production work on Yuri Monogatari 5 (which, btw, is going to be brilliant. And I’m not just saying that.) And I start a new job tomorrow. So…no reviews for a couple of days while I reconstruct my daily schedule and figure out where and what I am doing.

In the meantime, as I have done the last few times I needed a break, I am once again taking questions on anything – life, the universe, Yuri, my favorite flavor of jellybean, whether jelly bean is one word or two, Maria-sama ga Miteru, Yuriko, anything. Feel free to post your questions here in the comments field, or email them to me at anilesbocon01@hotmail.com. I do not promise to answer every question, but I’ll do my best. The better the question, the better the answer, usually. Hint, hint. ;-)

The last few times we did this, it was a total scream – I can’t wait for your questions this time!

    If you could have a plushie of any one character (not of your own creation, but any other book/anime/manga/movie/ova, etc are fair ground) who would it be, and why?

    I have been ruminating for some time and cam up with one serious and two spurious questions.

    1. Serious. I have been thinking for some time and come up with a theory: Any series that markets itself _primarily_ as ‘Yuri’ or ‘yaoi’ is going to be, at best, second rate – for the same reason that we are knee deep in asinine Harem animes. For example, Utena contains a strong Yuri component, but that isn’t what the series is about primarily; similarly, Tokyo Babylon contains a strong yaoi component, but, again, it isn’t what it is about primarily. And both of those are first-rate. Yet, anything that tries to base itself _primarily_ on that will, at best be second-rate – witness Simoun, Devil Lady.

    Your Thoughts?

    2. First Spurious question: What the most annoying type of Yuri fanfiction out there?

    3. Out of all the anime lesbians, and particularly the EPLs, which character do you think would be most likely to wear a “Cardinal Ratzing Fanclub” t-shirt?

    -Do you believe in fundamental gender differences between men and women? If so, then how?

    -Suppose there’s a transgendered man (a person with a man’s body but is woman-identified). For whatever reason, ‘he’ never gets a sex change. At some point ‘he’ marries a woman. Does that make ‘him’ a male lesbian?

    -What Yuri manga do you believe would make a great feature film? Maybe specifically an American feature film?
