I'm off to watch some porno....

... which consists of a frowning boy with orange hair who has a sword as tall as he is, a tiny girl with long fringes across her face, a lion plushie and a whole lot more of characters. Whoa...!!! GB??

Nah... Seriously, it's not what you're thinking ^.^;;. Unless you think that anime "secara am" ought to be categorized as cartoon pornography as a certain tabloid newspaper did. Bodohness! Hentai (anime pornography) is a genre in anime, like how hardcore porno is a genre in movies. You wouldn't go 'Movies is hardcore porn', would you? If that's true, we'd have one heck of a messy after-show theatre [=.=;;; Don't even try to imagine...].

Despite a powerful online outrage that spreaded in blogs and forums, not to mention hoards of angry letters by anime fans, the reporter refused to rectify his mistake, instead insists that he's right and acted arrogant/know-it-all. He should had delivered the truth to the public, the whole pie and not just a crumb of it. As a fan of anime, I'm worried that those who had heard anime for the first time through Kosmo! will get a wrong understanding of anime.

Oh look....What is that tumbling down the drain?? Encik Faizal Zakaria, it's your credibility as a journalist. Congrats!

This is no child's play where you could make a mistake and easily brush it aside, without influencing readers.

However, when life delivers lemons (or people like FZ), make lemonades! (and not little FZs *swt*) I guess it's thanks to him that we now have a section on anime in The Star, a mainstream newspaper, in which people actually have some trust in it. Er, although mainstream newspaper did made a mistake in the whole Black Metal thing... what's this, a season for newspapers to boil themselves in hot water?

Actually I'm pretty bored writing this, because it's stale. It's been in my notepad for days but I forgot to update mah blog. Better late than never though. Hah.

PS: That 'porno' I mentioned is Bleach.
