I think this is way too comical for a thesis. the "craaaazy" hair through me off as well as all of the (random asides), and the fandom references like the fanfiction. Honestly, I hope you didn't submit this to an actual college because this is kind of...well, immature.

Hey Concerned! Thanks for the comment. It gave me quite a laugh, even if you didn't intend so. My thesis went through a whole year or workshopping and discussion with my professors before it was published online. So its not like i wrote it in complete isolation. I intend to push the bounds of what is considered legitimate research. Plus, my topic and style isn't new. There's actually a published essay on yaoi fanfic called "Girls that like to read about boys bonking each other" or something like that. If that's not comical... well...

Ohhh! In my experience, papers are supposed to be very serious, so I figured this was a joke. If this style is allowed then more power to you, but if I submitted this to any professor it would not fly.

I have to admit, I kind of love everything on this website. I already love looking at fandom as a whole through a critical lens and this hits pretty much all my sweet spots within that. Plus, it's unafraid to use humor! Seriously, screw "Concerned," we need more light-heartedness in academia, it's too damn boring to outsiders most of the time, jfc.

Anyway, this has pretty much been the best thing I've read in a long time and makes me crave more fandom academia, ahaha. Much love for this! <3

Hey Caterfree! I'm very delighted that you enjoyed this! I had a great time writing it (when I wasn't staying up all night of course). I definitely agree that academia needs to loosen its tie. Think about how many more people would be interested in theory if they cracked a few jokes every now and then.

I think you're missing one important part of the Yu-Gi-Oh! phenomenon, hypocrisy. A good portion of Yu-Gi-Oh! fans are immature jerks and bullies. And a good of the Yu-Gi-Oh! cosplayers are spineless and have serious anger issues. It always baffles me that a show that promotes friendship can attract such cruel people.

Hmmmm, this is unfortunate to hear. Sadly, there'll be jerks and Fan Dumbs in every fandom. I don't know too much about the jerk population in YGO; personally, I haven't encountered a lot of hate. But with the card game (at the least) being competitive and all, I'm sure there's folks who don't exercise good manners. Yes, baffling, and really interesting actually. Would you care to share some of your experiences encountering these folks?

The closing of the first Yu-Gi-Oh! Abridged deviantart group and what happened right before it really gave me a negative opinion of Yu-Gi-Oh! cosplayers. I confronted the mods about it and they acted like they did nothing wrong. It was so disgustingly childish. Then I got a lot of negative attention and rude remarks after I made a post on Playthedamncard about how and not to deal with stupid quotes from Yu-Gi-Oh! Abridged being yelled at cosplayers at conventions. I managed to reconcile with a few people but some were totally jerks to me when I asked for an apology. Ever since then I've always felt a twinge of anger when I see anything related to Yu-Gi-Oh! On the bright side, later on I managed to get to know the mod from the first Abridged deviantart club who wrote the tear down post that started the whole thing, we discovered we had a lot in common and I'd like to think we've become good friends. In fact I see her as the sister I never had. So some good has come out of my troubles with the fandom but I suspect some of her friends won't be as accepting of me. And the hate I got from the playthedamncard post still makes me angry at times. There are times when I want to go to an anime convention just so I can hunt down Yu-Gi-Oh! cosplayers and beat the crap out of them but I know better. Violent reactions almost always have negative consequences and some Yu-Gi-Oh! cosplayers do NOT seem to understand that.

I found your essay from livejournal. As a yugioh fan who eventually majored in Japanese Studies in university and generally familiar with most sources that you sited, it was a really interesting analysis! I've come across several thesis on yaoi and anime, but none so detailed and focused on one specific anime. I enjoyed your writing tremendously, though I'm surprised your supervisors allowed such style and extends of freedom. I've personally never watched the dubbed versions so it was a very nice insight to them. (Conclusion: never ever watching them!) XD

Hey andrew. Sorry for not getting back to you. thanks for your great comments and willingness to share your experiences. :) Don't worry about this last comment you've responded too. I think its spam! The website has been getting waves and waves of spam... >___< i'm not sure how to block it. In response to your original post, it's great that you've been able to connect to others in the community, and i'm sorry that u feel anger at YGO! And yes, violence comes in many forms including the way we treat each other online. Your experiences are very relevant to current issues in our rapidly "internetifying" world. I hope that you've found other communities/fandoms that are respectful.

Thank you for the sympathy Liz. I really appreciate it. I've found another community/fandom where the majority of the people I've spoken to are respectful. I went to a meetup for some of the fans and there was no one near my own age at the meeting. The only people I ever speak to who are in my age group, which is early to mid twenties, are through facebook. Some of them are old school friends, others I've never met in person and chances are never will. I spend most of my time either working at my job or writing and producing comic strips during my free time. I rarely talk to anyone outside of work or the internet. I feel so alone!

Andrew, if you enjoy writing comic strips, you should just keep doing that and share it with others in any way that you can. If you're passionate about something, your energy will attract positive people to you. It's the same with this website. I think people cast a skeptical eye on the idea of writing a thesis about YGO, but it turned out pretty cool bc I was interested in the subject and how to present it; so therefore others found it interesting too. If you doubt yourself, don't! :)

Does this dating service you're considering or using use a complicated patented formula to decide who you should or shouldn't date? If this is so, do they offer you this as advice or limit your options to only those they feel are right for you? It is alright for them to offer you that as advice but you might not wish to be forced into a category where your option is limited to somebody else's concept of your perfect date.

Everyone has silly logic equations in their mind. Consequently, everyone has meanings in their life. These meanings are made with equation - like sentences. Some sentences will add a positive spin to our life, others can make our life miserable. If you think you lack meaning in your life, take some time to explore and examine the internal sentence/equations you are using. These equation-like sentences are built up over the years through experience and associations coupled with internalized dialogue and mental pictures.
