Since nobody interested making this topic earlier,so I decided to make one.Here's my first question:

In Saikano,I heard they are some English-speaking characters,mostly the enemies.Are they Americans? I never watched Saikano before.

Well,perhaps my question just too simple.

I don't think its limited the Americans, but I think its generally Americans. The whole world is in an all out suicidal war so.......

Now then on yet another completely unrelated question has any one been to a desient anime wallpaper site, my main site is dead. Yes I know I fringing on asking people to break the forum rules but I don't have nobody else to ask.

I don't actually remember what language the enemy speaks, but on the other hand, I think that's a pointless question.
In reality, it's pretty much pointless to the grunts. The nationality of the enemy is important for history books, but for the common soldier it's just kill or be killed.
As I see it the Saikano message is like that it's completely unimportant against whom the Japanese fight. What does it matter anyway? If the authors had given the enemy a national identity I think the story would have tended too much towards the political, and that is definitely not what Saikano is about.

ya, it is a battle of japan's xenophobia. japan against the world! it shows that they would rather have everybody die than cave into the evil gaijin ways! japan power!

that whole shuji tough love on the meek super power called chise is another metaphor, but that is unimportant right now...

You know, there are so many books about the cultural genesis of the Japanese... go read a few of them about aesthetics and you will be enlightened. There's enough to find to make for a 2000 words term paper I assure you.

Here's an interesting article for you to read: http://www.albany.edu/ws/journal/journa ... zawa3.html

As for a good website for anime wallpapers, Anime Paper is by far the best IMO.
