    How come %90 of all anime shows have a "teddy bear" like character?

    I mean WTF? WHY? Do they think it is original when they do it and make theres look different then the other shows?

    They are usually shown holding large guns and being "badass" or being "the wuss that runs away and makes jokes"!

    I MEAN COME ON!!!! [​IMG]

    Watch Gurren Lagann, Black Lagoon dub, Baccano!, Shigofumi, Seto no Hanayome unless you're so retarded, that you can't watch anything.

    Gurren lagann: Guns, fanservice, and giant robots fighting. What more can you want? Has a thing that's similar to a bear, but it dies, by getting pierced by a drill.

    Black Lagoon: Best fucking dub ever. Has a big awesome black guy. Not even close to looking like a teddy bear.

    Shigofumi: Letters from teh ded coming to you. No bears, no shit.

    Baccano!: You'll hate it, because you'll think this is boring, stupid, and call me an ass. Has no bears. Or any shit.

    Seto no Hanayome: No bears. Has mermaids, man eating sharks disguised as people, etc. Hilarious anime.

    If you don't like subs, you're probably watching shitty dubbed animes, like Bleach, Naruto, or stuff like that. Don't come to me, and say "It's not in English, and I'm too lazy to read the subs". Watch Black Lagoon in dub.

    I never said it to be bad. Surprisingly, I like both sub and the dub for this.

    Sub has a bit better acting for some of the minor characters, but the Dub has a much more realistic script, IMO

    I am NOT saying I don'y like anime!

    All I am saying is why do most of them find is necessary to have a bear type character!

    Read what I wrote. Has animes with no bears. If you love watching shounen, you can't hate Gurren Lagann.

    Even if you don't like shounen, you'll love Gurren lagann. Unless you do the same with anime, the way you do with games.

    Or only watch anime in dubs.

    I don't watch any anime and hardly any TV so its a moot point.

    EDIT: I do enjoy the cowboy bebop tho. [​IMG]

    Watch Death Note, it has death gods(shinigami), sweets, idols, mafia, annoying smartass kids, a god wannabe, "JUST AS PLANNED", epic potato chip-eating and writing, Ronald McDonald and it also has no bears, only a fish-faced shinigami. What's not to like?

    Get the manga instead, so much more epic.
    Also, watch code geass. Its basically Death Note with epic mechs and helluva lot more fanservice.

    Oh, and no bears.
    Though your dislike of bears makes me sad [​IMG].
    Every show needs comic relief, most animes simply choose teddy bears.

    Can't think of many that don't have a mascot character, but that's the deal, they're mascot characters of the show.

    It's just a device of the show, nothing more. They're not always bears, but I guess bears are popular.

    I say manga is good if you want the storyline. Anime is good for Bleach and stuff, where the fight scenes are like epic. In the manga (for Bleach anyways) the fighting is like "WTF IS GOING ON?! ALL I ARE SEE IS LINES AND EXPLOSIONS!". Once again, my opinion. [​IMG]

    That's very true. They can't pronounce most of the names right to begin with, and most of the time, the acting is much more corny. For example, in the death note dub, they say Kiira, like something off of mexico (No offense), and again, they can't pronouce things right. Rem's voice doesn't fit the character, and so on. A lot of the time, the voices don't even fit in well as the character.

    There are a few shows I've watched that has a dub that's equal to or better than subs. Fullmetal Alchemist, Chromartie high, and Black Lagoon. I did hear that Cowboy bebop dub is good too.

    Hahaha. I loved it, but it may give him a brain damage.... Also, it's probably gonna be the most goriest anime he'll ever watch. Either that, or think it's stupid, because of the group's club activities.

    He will shoot down the animation quality before he even sees a club activity, go watch School Days instead, there's nothing wrong with it, it also has a NICE BOAT.

    Awww, don't they look so sweet?

    Oh and Higurashi doesn't give you brain damage, it just makes you more prone to going psycho when threatened, nothing wrong with that right?
