Could you tell me what were some of the strongest Gundam dubs and the weakest Gundams dubs other than Gundam Unicorn , Gundam The Origin and the upcoming Gundam Thunderbolt because well all know that those dubs are essentially one of the greatest Gundam dubs the came out in recent history ?

I did an article about English dubs for Gundam a few years back on Otaku Revolution: http://bit.ly/1WBLQ70

How do you feel about the idea that if someone in (insert group here) does something extreme, then every member of said group should be generalised as being exactly the same as said extremist?

It depends on whether this is an isolated incident amongst the group in question or part of a larger pattern of behavior, how damaging it is, and whether or not that individual in question is condemned by members of said group. It's an incredibly vague question.

Thoughts on FUNimation loosing the Fullmetal Alchemist franchise, along with Baccano and Darker than Black?

Aniplex is a bad company and bad people support it (directly, anyway). I already have FMA 2003, FMA Brotherhood, and Baccano!. I should grab DtB soon, because I enjoyed that. I won't be spending 200-300 bucks buying it from Aniplex USA just because it has a chipboard box and a few postcards thrown in. Then again, it could be said I'm somewhat hypocritical on this, seeing as how I bought all seven Blu-Rays of Gundam Unicorn from another gouger, Bandai. They won't be getting my Blu-Ray money for The Origin though, that's an online rental for now.

What aspects or ideals of being a liberal do you personally disagree with?

I'm not totally on board with all political correctness. I think political correctness has its place and use, but I also think the euphemisms can deaden speech at times. I do think we ought to be sensitive towards the needs of others, but some of the Tumblr victimhood is a little much. The thing is, though, it's not really as prevalent outside those tiny circles, so I don't really exaggerate it's effect. You know, not even the most hardcore hipster GIF-fiend is in real life arguing about every little aspect of a movie or TV show being racist or insensitive. There are WAY more people who take right wing thought too far than left wing thought.

What do you think of Dragon Ball Minus?

I think it's a load of bullshit designed to make Goku part of a noble line rather than just a freak among his people because he got brain damage. That scene with Bardock and Gine sending Goku off to protect him is saccharine nonsense. Forget that it retcons the Bardock special, that wasn't Toriyama anyway, but Toriyama directly contradicts what he said in the DB manga when Raditz says Goku was sent to Earth to kill everyone. Granted, Raditz isn't the most trustworthy source, but he wouldn't have any real reason to lie about that.

What's your opinion of the dark knight strikes again? Do you think other people would like it better if it got the animated movie treatment(to make it WAYY easier to look at, IMO)?

The art is just the surface of the mess of that comic. It's a pompous, self-indulgent, excessive mishmash that makes a joke of everything the original story was.
