    Oh lol that was awesome… I never knew that you took it seriously… I mean, I was just joking that you should make this XD… I owe you one I guess🙂

  2. 2 FuyuMaiden November 26, 2008 at 1:58 pm

    I read it all. Even though my brain was dead I read it all and now my brain is even dead-er. Well, I actually got woken up quite a few times while reading the list when I was reminded of some anime specifically (a lot of them airing). Can’t say specifically because my brain is dead, but um yeah. So, a very successful list I’d say. I approve.

    I was glad to see that my own personal favorite rule of anime was in there, basically, “If they look like a girl and act like a girl…they’re a guy.” Traps are always the most feminine character in the series after all. It is the law.

    Things to add in would be some rules of shoujo and romance specifically I’m familiar with. “When you meet your future boyfriend/girlfriend wind will blow all around, even indoors.” “If a girl falls when no one is around, a guy will still catch her.” and “When in danger, shout someone’s name. It helps.”

  3. 3 Kairu Ishimaru November 26, 2008 at 1:59 pm

    -Everything cool happens in Japan-
    I KNOW. And I started hating my own country thinking it is UNcool. Which is true for some reasons.

    -There will be robots. If there are no robots, there will be ninjas-
    Alternative ver.: There will be gundams. If there are no gundams, there will be naruto.

    -Anime guys have better hair than the ones in real life-
    Yes. And I started wishing I have GOOD hair like them.

    -The vampire is not always the bad guy-
    Vampire Knight anyone?

    -The song “Cry Me a River” takes on a whole new meaning-
    I dont get it.

    Okay. Your list is too long that I cant reply to all of them.

  4. 4 tsuiteru November 26, 2008 at 2:15 pm

    @kanzeon: *ignores*

    @FuyuMaiden:O_o *worships* Hey thanks for reading them all! Trap characters are hot, in their ‘girl’ form… but nothing more than that😄. LOL I forgot lots of life lessons from shoujo anime😄

    @Kairu Ishimaru: I don’t literally hate our country, it’s just sometimes I just get jealous on Japan’s otaku culture ;_;. We all can be weeab00-much. And “Cry Me A River” pertains to how anime characters cry in an exaggerated way.

  5. 5 foomafoo November 26, 2008 at 2:20 pm

    @kairu
    cry me a river refers to the exaggerated flow of tears.

    by the way tsui, you mentioned about the jeeps. Others might not understand what it is.😄

  6. 6 tsuiteru November 26, 2008 at 2:25 pm

    @foomafoo: Oh lol… I guess I’ll make the line more international instead😄

    Btw, Jeeps = Philippine vehicles

  7. 7 7 November 26, 2008 at 3:49 pm

    @Kanzeon: Owe him a KISS KISS KISS…lol. I crack myself too much.

    @tsuiteru: Good job on the post. Agree with most if not all of them.

  8. 8 xiao_jie November 26, 2008 at 10:04 pm

    I read it all…and I’m saving it. *will credit, btw*
    This was awesome. I wish I had something to add but I can’t think of any at the moment. xD;
    Well, here are a few of my favorites:

    The harder she hits you, the more she loves you
    Tough love prevails the most!

    Even if your magical-girl transformation takes an eternity to finish, the bad guys will usually stand still and never attack until you finish
    Because what they are really afraid of is that if they break said “DO NOT INTERRUPT MAGICAL GIRL TRANSFORMATION SEQUENCE” law, they would have to face THE most ugliest, unknown consequences that humanity could only dare to imagine…which explains why they won’t ever disrupt it. xDD;;;

    Everyone wants to conquer Japan
    No, everyone wants to conquer Japan first.😛

    Everyone needs a hobby. Many need a life
    Yea-huh.

    Japanese shows can do just fine on American T.V. as long as you don’t tell anyone they’re Japanese
    Wow…so some of them can tell the difference! 8D;;

    Double suicide is romantic
    Awwz~, yes it is.❤

    No matter how many times you rebuild it, Tokyo keeps getting destroyed in a massive fireball
    And it will be up and functioning normally again the very next day as if nothing has happened.

    EDIT: Ditzy fangirls sometimes have the potential of being smart…they just do not try hard enough at all
    Wha? They try? Since when? *so mean* xDDD;;;

    Yea…thx for posting this. It made my day.😀

  9. 9 Kitsune November 27, 2008 at 1:34 am

    I see… Image deprivation can make people do crazy things😛

    The smarter/wiser a person is, the more likely he is to be perverted

    Oh, how did you come up with that correlation?

    There are an infinite number of alternate universes, each with its own version of Tenchi Muyo

    lol

    The longer it takes to say what your punch is called, the less effective it is

    The longer the name, the more powerful the special attack is

    Ah, everything is clear now – it is all about the speed of the tongue…

  10. 10 ffviiknight November 27, 2008 at 4:00 am

    tl;dr

    Well, skimmed it.

    “-Y’know the main guy? That girl he runs into at the beginning? Yeah, they get together-”

    Disproven by Cat Street🙂

  11. 12 tsuiteru November 27, 2008 at 11:23 am

    @7: I think I spilled my coffee.

    @xiao_jie: Lol you said it XD! Thank you too ^_^ Glad you appreciated it (even though a CERTAIN girl here made my efforts into waste ;_;)

    @Kitsune: The more things he know, the more things he know🙂

    @ffviiknight: I haven’t read that manga yet. Is it good? Did they ran into each other?

    law of nominative clamovocation

    the likelihood of success and damage done by a martial arts attack is directly proportional to th e volume at which the full name of the attack is announced.

  13. 14 kanzeon November 27, 2008 at 12:08 pm

  16. 17 amayalee November 30, 2008 at 7:33 am

    Aw…you missed that the little sister is almost NEVER the little sister! Some crazy whacked story about being adopted and the death of parents will come up!
