Episode 6 of Goldenboy crossed with Genshiken. Pretty fun show.

I wished that they had shown the full project that they were working on at the beginning of the show.

I could definitely identify with the old man who couldn’t/wouldn’t draw moe. Considering that the project that the showcased in Episode 1 was about ultra-moe lolis, I wonder what he was able to do then.

This guy is whom all animators should aspire to be,

if this is what moe anime is considered to be:

Niconico in Japan, Crunchyroll overseas removes episode listing

What kind of rights issue? Is it something like what happened with GuP?

That’s brutal. Is this another instance of a Japanese company getting struck by a crippling fear of the Internet and acting irrationally because of it?

This kind of foolishness is just one of the many reasons that Crunchy’s former brethren will always have a place in the fandom.
