    You must care since you click on the article and even bothered to comment. I don't know what your problem is with Ultraman, but you should respect it. They deserved that award. So screw you Anonymous #1 aka the sad lonely troll.

    @anon 1, don't be so hard on yourself. I'm sure somebody cares about you.
    In all seriousness though, I'm glad Ultraman is in the Gunness world records. It's good that people outside of Japan will know more about Ultraman.

    >>How can you be a toku fan and not love Ultraman?

    Because there is not such thing as a "True Fan", all things considered everyone enjoying and disliking the same things would be extremely boring (not that the troll at the top is helping anything either)

    I can respect what the Ultra Series is but it just isn't for me. Tried twice to get into it and sadly couldn't (though for all I know Nexus and Ginga were bad places to start, if anyone knows a better modern jumping off point im happily all ears)

    @ Kirito

  13. Kirtro Says:

    @ anon September 13, 2013 at 11:24 PM

    K-i-r-t-r-o nothing to do with that sword art online guy. (if I had a dollar for everytime someone has gotten that wrong...)

    and I guess i'll give Mebius a look one of these days then. xD
