This is a shirt being worn by one of our editors at Adult Swim, Phil. It was created about a decade ago for Adult Swim employees only. It has been misconstrued as being “anti anime,” by some people. Here’s the story: back in the early days of AdultSwim.com’s message boards, there was a vocal minority of posters who passionately hated Adult Swim’s action block, which consisted of several anime shows (some of which were initially slated for Toonami). Our bump writers pulled the phrase “cuz anime is the s uck” from a poster complaining about anime on Adult Swim and ran it as a bump. We chose to make it a t-shirt as a comment on the illiteracy of L33T speak, and internet trolling in general. We wore the shirts as a badge of honor- WE LOVE ANIME, and always will. Adult Swim has been on the air since 2001, and we’ve had a commitment to anime that entire time. We still do. Cus anime is the s uck. ;)
this website is comedy gold.
That site is pure lulz concentrate.
It also hints as to the average age of the visitor and possibly the interest in the history behind the issues that they like to complain about.
I mean not one trigger listed on The Birth of a Nation (at least at the time of visit)?
The movie represented by a poster of a fucking Klansman?
From the kind of people that spend a huge chunk of their free time stating how racist things are?
loving how there’s no Nazism or antisemitism listed for the sound of music
This website is awful. Documenting “triggers” in a fashion similar to TV Tropes just dampens the significance of actual triggers and further enables people to use them as accessories for their trendy online identities.
