We can post articles about Joan Rivers' death? About McDonald's workers trying to strike / form unions? About terrorism and 9/11/14 tomorrow? About my favorite brands of hummus?

'Cause all those nontech things affect me and others WAY more than someone's particular fondness for a style of animation.

In other words, NO WAY does this belong on Pipedot in my opinion. Unless it's just B's personal blog, which of course is his right.

Slashdot has had an "anime" topic since forever. Many anime series include hard sci-fi topics, such as space-junk, Internet, cybernetics, and the obligatory giant robots!

Surely at least some geeks are interested in these things, ne?

No, I honestly don't see a point there. "At least some geeks" are interested in knitting or baking or cars or country music too, but that doesn't merit a random new recipe or ballad or poncho or sedan design making the front page -- unless there's an interesting and unique tech angle.

Again, if it's here because you're into anime and it's your site, fine, I get it, but there's nothing inherently geeky, let alone techie, about a particular cartoon being released.

All that whined, I mean said, if you want you could take a poll, but I recommend you ignore my opinion and do what makes you happy. Rule by overthought consensus is what's making Soylent such a miserable place. :)

If it was three or for anime articles in a row I might be inclined to agree with you, but one every now and then isn't an issue. I for one am an anime fan and thought this was a nice piece to skim over. You could have chosen to just not read it if you don't like anime. For a lot of us "geeks" anime has been a part of our lives since we were clacking away on our first keyboards.

BTW, I've really enjoyed the content coming out of the pipe for the last few days. Lots of great and interesting articles. I've noticed the comments are also increasing too. Keep it up.
