->''“Nanoha may appear to be an average third-grader, but she has a secret: she’s actually a clone created by an evil animation company, imbued with a personality culled from millions of outgoing animated magical girls, and sent to suck the life from anime fans who walked into the series expecting quality entertainment.”''

->''"It's got ''Ultima'' words, and ''Ultima'' pictures and characters in it. But it got it all wrong. The characters are all there, but they don't ''mean'' anything and they don't contribute anything. It's like ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts.''\\\

->"If it's an idea you would have thought of anyway, fine. It's okay for a manga artist to adapt like that. But if you go around absorbing everything your fans give you, you end up with gibberish, like this. Listen, fan mail is something to encourage you, not something to steal ideas from. If you start using all these suggestions, then your work won't be Muto Ashirogi's anymore. It'll be something your fans created... understand?"

->''"...I think there’s a great cautionary tale here about what happens when you listen to the fans. Because the hardcore followers of any franchise, ''Franchise/StarTrek'' or otherwise, [[VocalMinority who make the most noise]] are generally the ones most bogged down by their own personal hang-ups and obsessions, and therefore the least capable of knowing what would make for a good story."''

->''"Why give legacy comics fans what they think they want at all? The notion that the longtime readers somehow have a greater claim on a comics character than the new fan – and that both outrank the artist – has plagued the industry for as long as there have been superheroes; people who spend 20 or 30 years reading the adventure of a single character develop proprietary feelings that have nothing to do with the nature or intricacy of the creative process."

->''"Tapping into the heartfelt meanings we build ''in our lives'' is one thing (that's what art does), but recycling the ones we associate with other art is something else altogether. The "technical term" for it is pastiche, and on ''Smallville'' the approach is at once respectful of the primary referent (again, [[Film/{{Superman}} Donner]]) but somewhat disrespectful of the audience because it assumes that we will slavishly eat it up. It's manipulative, it's lazy, and, in many respects, [[ViewersAreMorons it seems to have succeeded.]]"''
