I've had it with this crappy anime crappy crap. Elephant in the room is that it looks creepy and, yes, crappy.

Lets get back to real American animation and lets identify the treasonous bastards that push wide eyed horrors on the American people and get the CIA to send them to Gitmo.

Enough is enough. :x :x

Yeah, right.

I see your howeling creepy girls and raise you an American Icon, Clutch Cargo, featuring the patented Syncro-Vox technique that imparts mostly realistic lips on top of a static image thus eliciting horror howls of delight from the unsuspecting audience.

That's a pun in the Japanese. Kamisama means God. But it's usually written 神様
紙 is also pronounced 'kami' but it means paper.
A fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool.

Einstein had none of the local currency on him, so he took up a pen and wrote a note on a sheet of hotel stationery. “Stilles bescheidenes Leben gibt mehr Glueck als erfolgreiches Streben, verbunden mit bestaendiger Unruhe,” he wrote. (Translation: A calm and modest life brings more happiness than the pursuit of success combined with constant restlessness).

An American Tourist’s Photos Of Japan In 1908

In 1908 German-born American Arnold Genthe (1869-1942) was on a 6-month visit to Japan. Armed with his camera, Genthe recorded life during the Meiji period. Just two years earlier, Genthe’s studio in San Francisco (opened in 1898) was destroyed in the huge earthquake and fire of 1906. Genthe, who surveyed the ruins with the actress Sarah Bernhard, had secured his photos in a bank vault, which meant that they survived the carnage. He rebuilt his studio and then made his trip out east.
