      I don’t believe in a god, and yet I believe in this sentiment. ;_;7

    He makes me wish I was an American.

    Must be something to do with the smiley face badge/medal.

      Fun fact: Dan Eagleman killed The Comedian from Watchmen to get that medal.

    The Brits get the Jojo clan.
    The Americans get Dan Eagleman.
    The Irish get Clain.

    All right with the world.

    Oh hey, this was from the good episode of Guilty Crown! Shinmaru always has the best taste in anime.

      He’s killing it with these moments. All excellent picks so far.

        Both excellent and 100 percent true statements.

    You stave off my disappointment for one more day Mr. Maru.

      But will I continue to do so?!?! Only tomorrow shall reveal …

    Apparently Dan Eagleman transcends time, because I seem to recall him showing up and getting killed off last year.

      Um, yes, he is The Greatest Patriot, after all.

        So what if he died? He got better, as all American patriots should be able to do.

    I liked Dan. It’s a pity he showed up too few times anyway.

    But the series had too much Evangelion-derived content and overly typical shounen hero progression behind it. I didn’t find many of the episodes to be entertaining during the second half since things got simultaneously too creepy, under-explained and predictable all of a sudden.

    Hey, I like this short post the among all the 12 days anime post so far.
    Dan Eagleman is a rare character in Guilty Crown who is not awful.
    He even died protecting a woman he barely knows.
    Rest in peace, dude.
    You will be remembered.
    Instead of “Oh Ma Shoe”

    I knew I shouldn’t have dropped Guilty Crown like 4 episodes in. I never got to experience true American Patriotism.

    I felt Dan Eagleman represented both everything that was right and that was wrong with Guilty Crown. If there were more people like Dan Eagleman in it, perhaps it would have been a better show. I also think if there was no Dan Eagleman it could have been a better show.

    Dan Eagleman, you are an enigma. At the same time you’re an anti-enigma and that’s why I loved you.

One Trackback

  • […] The history of anime itself illustrates more directly how strong this soft power may be. Anime, contrary to what some may claim, was inspired by American/Western film. Many of the current styles of animation, now iconic to the genre, were often implemented simply to cut costs as a war-torn country emerging from the wake of total defeat tried to emulate the media of its occupier. Given this then, we could ask the obvious question: how prevalent is American influence in anime itself? The answer, surprisingly, is almost none, outside maybe negative tropes such as the “dumb American” (yeaaaa Dan Eagleman!).* […]
