Uncle Yo’s 10 Commandments for Watching New Anime

  1. Thou shall not judge a new anime based on its title. Look at Bleach…
  2. Thou shall not judge an anime based on its opening theme.
  3. Thou shall not judge based on its random misuse of English (because at least they’re trying).
  4. Not by said anime’s opening theme song’s random misuse of English.
  5. Thou shall not judge a new anime based on its first episode. It’s call the bait-and-switch people, be aware of it.
  6. Thou shall not judge based on the fan girls.
  7. Thou shall not steal new anime from the Internet….unless thou intends to share with thine anime club.
  8. Thou shall accept that gravity is optional. Especially when dealing with hair.
  9. Thou shall not say the manga was better unless thou hath read the manga.
  10. Thou shall forgive thy parent’s for calling anime “cartoons,” and thus grouping Spike Spiegel and Light Yagami with Mickey Mouse, Bugs Bunny and SpongeBob Squarepants.
