There's a typically fanboy argument going on over on the Usenet group rec.arts.anime.misc about ADV's decision to render a newly licensed title as UFO Princess Valkyrie instead of UFO Princess Walkure. Lots of yammering about loan words, and localization, and yadda yadda yadda. Me, I can't get over how they're so fixated on the localization issue, when we're talking about Pedo Princess Walkure, here. It's an anime featuring a female lust-object who appears to be a prepubescent little girl, until she's kissed by the post-pubescent male protagonist, whereupon she turns into an impossibly busty and nubile babe. It's a pedophilic fantasy! Lolicon fetishism! And it sucks on dry ice! WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE? Who cares what you call it? If there's a hell, you're going to it!
