Dimitri asks:Today I noticed a huge uproar in regards to Ai Takabe and her arrest for drug possession and potential usage. Now would this not have interested me, was it not for the fact that here whole presence in the anime society got 'erased'. Her credits got removed from the official websites of the respective anime, and Bandai announced their discontinuation of streaming the series she appeared in (Kill Me Baby, Sweet Blue Flowers, Wandering Son).

Cordelia asks:I noticed that in Japan, American movies are highly popular such as Titanic and Frozen for examples.

Alec asks:I am a big fan of both Gunbuster and Diebuster and have noticed that both contain an opening video and framing for a commercial break. I am assuming that Diebuster was merely following the lead of Gunbuster in this regard.

Chris asks:Over the Summer, there was a lot of talk about “Peak TV”, the idea that there is more good scripted TV being produced than there are viewers with time to watch it. The argument was succinctly made by FX's John Landgraf at the Television Critics Association press tour, who showed that there are more than 1,700 series currently on US television, nearly 400 of which are scripted.
