The Anime Nostalgia Thread!
First off, a big thank you to all the staff who made this thread. (I only saw it today cause I've been so freaking busy lately! :p). I and many others will greatly enjoy having a one size fits all solution for rewinding and discussing our good memories. That being said, I wanted to blog because I'm still concerned about this whole expectation that members don't compare how the series past affects its ongoing development. Think about this; all the series are connected to each other and the primary participants of the thread are likely to be long term watchers who have much to discuss about all of them. To say there won't be any comparing I think is outright unrealistic. Trouble doesn't start when somebody has a complaint or concern, it happens when another individual decides they cannot accept that position. Its never why we compare, but how that shapes the community. It's a choice between discussing for the sake of intelligence and anticipation of the future, or for the sake of yourself and wanting others to agree with you.
Again, the Pokemon anime, the franchise is all intertwined and so are the respective fandoms. Are we really going to make progress fighting the root of our community's problems, or even more, are we really going to have peaceful and high quality discussions simply by creating little segregated havens for this and that? Are regulations and mod actions enough to actually accomplish this? Until the fruit of the recent efforts to make the anime section better is seen, I can only cautiously continue to enjoy my time here.
