    The Legacy of the Fate/Stay Night Universe

    In 2004, Japanese company Type-Moon released a visual novel titled Fate/Stay Night, with its first anime production following two years later in 2006. In 2015, the franchise just came off a pretty successful anime run In Unlimited Blade Works and is preparing to release a film based on the Heaven’s Feel route. Why has a franchise been this successful in its sales and merchandising? What makes this franchise endure the test of time and stand out from the rest of many visual novels?

    • Austin has already written a topic about this. I'd go find his article and make sure the content deviates. Otherwise, great idea. – Jordan 5 years ago

    The Impacts of Hatsune Miku

    One of Japan’s iconic musical idols is not even real. Her name is Hatsune Miku – an anime inspired program called a Vocaloid. Vocaloids are anime inspired characters based off of musical software that are often featured in original musical compositions, video games, fan art, music videos, and so much more. Hatsune Miku has been a driving force in Japan and is slowly making her way to popularity in North America and the rest of the world. How can a musical idol that is not even real inspire so many to express their creativity?

    • This is a very interesting topic and one I would like to hear your full opinion on. I have personally heard multiple songs sung by Hatsune Miku and I would like to hear other people thoughts on her/its success. A suggestion if your looking for references, the FineBros on Youtube did a react episode of elders watching a Hatsune Miku concert. – tylerjt 5 years ago

    As a growing writer myself, I believe that characters should have more than one side to them. I always ask myself what motivates the character I’m writing about and the choice they made to get to where they are today.

    When I watched Bebop for the first time, I was amazed at how the director has woven a clear cut story, with scenes that are at times minimalist and leaves you guessing for more.

    I remember watching Lain lat year. When you get down to it, it confusing at first, but the story seem to make sense to me somewhere in the middle of the plot. It had a very intimidating and dark atmosphere and the odd silences between scenes in the show jut added that sense of uneasiness.

    Out of all the shonen anime I’ve watched, none tackled such philosophical ideas of love, war, and peace like Naruto did. It started out as a campy action oriented ninja anime and has slowly evolved and developed maturely over time like many of the show’s fans.

    Spirited Away was an anime film that my sociology class once analyzed for a class project. We noticed a lot of Marxist inspired concepts in the film such as how Yubaba controls the whole bathhouse (means of production) and how each worker has a specific job or duty to fulfill, as where Chihiro fits in by working hard to get her parents back. I saw the film in a different light back then and I still believe its one of Ghibli’s best.
