Awww, filler? Again? Oh well, here it is.


Found on a fourm that will not be named by a person who will not be named:

“Its GAINAX and you question the awesomeness?”

I almost died from laughing, then people looked at me funny because I was in class when I read this.

Ugh, the problems of upgrading are always so fun.  Of course the old theme had to be…old so that couldn’t be used for the update, so I spent a good chunk of time bring everything up to date, which while I may be a programmer, this is not C++ or JAVA.   But for the most part its good…expect the banner, but that will be done once…once well the poll is answered, as I stated before I was going to change the theme after the upgrade, but hey I’ll make it the poll..and I’ll follow what it is…so FOR GREAT THEME, TAKE OFF POLL!

Yes no title could be found because this post has so much epic and awesome and excellentness..ism…thing…yeah.  No really more or less it is a few announcements and stuff that need to come out and all of that good stuff.  First off the obvious, is that the blogroll has some new blogs on there Anime Diet and That’s Not Kanon, both of which better than me so go read them, and for Anime Diet check out their podcast again which is also grater than mine.  Also again for the obvious thing…there is a rants, raves, and opinions category now.  So if you want one of the three you know where to click.  Oh but thats not all more under the tag..thing…yeah I should just call it the same thing every time..but forget that.


I’ve been playing this game for years.  Almost non-stop ever since it came out.  The copyright says 2001 so I’m going to take a guess that’s when it came out.  It ranks up somewhere in my top five games, easily.  It’s so amazing, beautiful, and has action that will keep you going for…at least six years.

What game do I speak of?  Super Smash Bros. Melee. (more…)

Great teller of time

Thank you for your dots and lines

Oh clock of the Gods

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder means that different people will find different things beautiful and that the differences of opinion don’t matter greatly.

True statement, eh? It can be applied to many things, thats the thing with like…views. So, it seems around lately there, along with the “do you admit fandom” stuff and all of that that is going around, but what I see is the whole talk about mature anime.

I will take a firm standing that, yes, there is mature anime. Though the problem comes into play when you try to list any. This is why I defined Eye of the Beholder. This is what really comes down to making the decision. Really anything can be a serious anime, I mean I’m sure people could tell me the depth of -insert series here-, but does that make it serious to everybody? Of course not.

Then really, content doesn’t really add to make a series mature or not. Or more or less it depends on the definition of mature. Does it count as audience targeted, content, or something else? Yet again, Eye of the Beholder. I mean I see Lain as a mature anime, while I know people will be like “wtf?!” to that.

Really, yes most anime is geared toward a young audience.  I’m not trying to say that isn’t true.  Though really people can have mature conversations about stuff that isn’t mature.  So where does that fit in the mix…I have no clue.  So,  there is my 2 cents.  The whole point was to say that mature anime is out there, and/or mature talks or whatever can come out of any anime.

Yeah…I’ve more or less been waiting for this game to come out after playing the never came out in the US classic, Super Mario Picross.  Then with the ability to make your own puzzles, it won’t be long till anime themed ones come out.  Though the game itself is more or less well known in Japan.

The game itself is simple enough there is a grid and there are numbers for each row (horizontal and vertical) those show how many squares in each row are filled in.  Fill them in and it makes a picture.  Simple and addicting, much like any other puzzle game.

If you have a DS do yourself a favor and pick it up, and make puzzles, great feature to have and online play.  So enough of me talking about it, I need to play more and watch Hot Fuzz  (may do a better post about the game later as well)

Oh you thought it was just a simple filler post, but what an aftereffect it had. After the post went up, there was quite the discussion about the very topic. So after the more tag will have the full transcript of this conversation (with little to no editing, so spelling and stuff may not be perfect). (more…)

“Difficult to tell, the future is.”  (Yoda, Star Wars:  The Empire Strikes Back)

It stood true in the 80’s, and it still stands true now.  What will happen in the future?  Will there still be anime 30 years from now?  Will it evolve into something else?  Is it possible for us to still be receiving genuine, beautiful moving art?  Or, will we be stuck with a generic, half baked mess?

Difficult to tell, indeed. (more…)
