When people say, “You don’t live and breathe ‘x,’ so you can’t possibly understand it and thus can’t possibly criticize it,” I imagine that this argument somewhat applies to how I feel about yaoi. I know what it is, but I’ve never actually sat down and read a yaoi manga nor seen a yaoi anime (aside from Genshiken’s hilarious parody). So how can I really criticize yaoi, you know?
After the utter failure of ~Phantom~~Tilde~for~the~Phantom~~ to excite the interests of the Moe Sucks staff, we decided to move on to the suspiciously semitic-sounding Fight Ippatsu! Jūden-chan!! What we didn’t know is that we were in for a surprise (Ed.’s note: if only we had seen the promo)! Although at first Juden-chan appeared to be embarrassingly lame fanservice, by the end of the episode we all felt the show had really made a splash!
