Random Stuff

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…)

Something that every random writer has thought about.  Is what you’re writing too ridiculous?  Is it random to the point where no one will care?  What if it hits a sensitive topic and someone goes nuke on you?  Ok, that last one doesn’t happen very often.  I mean, seriously, who’s sensitive about penguin mating habbits?

The question remains, however.  When is random too random?


Well the idea for this post came from a comment from Runningkid did make a real point saying Zombie-Loan has a lot of things that other demon killing anime, or however you want to classify D. Gray Man, Chrono Crusade, and Venus Versus Virus. So this post will go though (with only episode 1 knowledge) and pick out things that have come from or are like other anime. Even though I’m sure to mess it up because I’m not as cool as the other bloggers.


Well, well, well.  Here I am once again.  Even though our last poll went over so well, I decided to not do another one.  Instead, I’ll just take one of the options from the poll.

Obviously the music option is out of the question.  As sad as it is, I haven’t read enough comments to make a thorough post about them (and we all know how thorough my posts are ;) ).  And if you don’t know the about the importance of patience, feel free to yell at me and I’ll do that next time :).
