Anime - Japanese Animation
Baka - Japanese word for idiot or fool
Loosely put an Anime Baka is someone who's crazy about Anime. However interpretation's may vary. I tend to think of Anime Baka as meaning something like drooling fan boy/girl.
Wrote this a long time ago. Too short for an article:
Perverted - Hentai in Japanese. But the word pervert means deviation from normal or accepted. So, how can all guys be perverts?
Did you ever notice that the sex scene in the movie is generally at about the same realative place as the guitar solo in a song?
2009-05-28 Crunchyroll Looks Good
My friend Jesse literally stumbled across the Crunchyroll office in San Francisco while servicing some equipment at a office next door.
Crunchyroll is an interesting company. They provide free legal ad supported viewing for anime and other things. They also offer a premium service starting at $7 a month which gets rid of the ads and has newer releases as well as HD. They are officially licensed with TV Tokyo and several other ordinal content providers in Japan for broadcast of these shows. It's very much like a Hulu for Anime/Asian.
One disapointment for me is they only seem to have Korean (and possibly some Chinesse) Drama right now. I assume that this is only a licensing thing and that they will increase their product soon.
