The anime community tends to unanimously agree and disagree on a lot of topics and issues. More so then most other fandoms. Unfortunately, that's not always a good thing. For instance, it's a big trend for the majority of the community to come down on or hate a specific anime or manga and it's fandom just because it's popular, such as K-On!! or Haruhi Suzumiya. On the flipside, we can get annoyed when a really good piece of fiction doesn't get the recognition we feel it deserves, like Summer Wars' consideration for an Oscar nomination. But, just like every other fandom I'm a part of, there are some things rub me the wrong way. One of those things is the anime community's stance on a certain characteristic that's been popping up a bit more recently. A characteristic that includes ditziness, big eyes, and cute actions. Let's talk about Moe....

Oh Marvel Legends. You were such a highly praised and much loved collector-oriented line of wonderfully detailed and perfectly articulated characters from all across the Marvel Comics universe. The line went through a lot of changes since it's beginning, especially after it's move from Toybiz to Hasbro, who's had it's ups and downs with the license at first. Now a days, though, Marvel Legends are a very rare find, with only one or two 2-packs coming out every year. Thankfully though, Hasbro has said that 2012 will herald the return of Marvel Legends and to wet our tongues have given us a 6 inch line of Iron Man figures until then. The Iron Man Legends line's first wave is pretty typical with two Iron Men and a War Machine, but the fourth figure is of a character fans have been wanting since his cancelled prototype was shown close to five years ago! Ladies and Gents; I give you Titanium Man!

Yeah, I haven't added anything new in over a week. I'm currently finishing up a new Display Case entry, but it may take an extra day since I need to charge up my camera. But to the two or three people that actually give a crap about my humble little blog, don't worry. I don't plan on letting this site die so easily....

The name's Joe, aka the Anime Addict. After spending some time wondering how to overcome my boredom, I've decided to start this here blog. You'll be able to find some thoughts on different anime series as well as other geeky things, such as toy reviews, movie and game thoughts and other such nonsense. If you're a geek, otaku, nerd or any variation of the three, then I hope you enjoy your time here. As a first-time blogger I promise to make things as interesting as I can.
