Full disclosure, in this article I’m going to be talking about something that is, in strictly technical definitions, pornography. The article is not about the sexual aspects, nor does it feature any sexual images. You’ve been warned in advance.
You know what I love? Taking something old and tired and making it new and interesting again. I love, for example, that Cabin in the Woods was able to take the played-out formula for an 80’s-style slasher movie and turn the whole thing on its head until it made that style fresh again. I think that sort of thing is brilliant. Continue reading Flipping Tropes On Their Head – The Case for Grisaia no Kajitsu
I was watching a new YouTube channel a week ago recommended to me by Greg, called Super Eyepatch Wolf. In it, he does really in-depth analysis of different anime. Some of his most popular videos are Why You Should Watch X (X being a favorite anime of his). They are very well though out, and interesting videos ranging from 20min to 50 min long. If you watch one you will probably end up watching the anime he is analyzing, and appreciating it even more because of his video. Finding this channel came at a perfect time because I was looking for a new anime to enjoy. I stumbled across his video on Mob Psycho 100 (MB100) and two days later I had finished the first season. It was a blast! Continue reading Mob Psycho 100 – A Good Time
All right, if you’re reading this I can assume one of two things: you either enjoyed what I wrote last time or you just want to see how much of a dumpster fire this will become. Either way, I’m happy you’re here. So let’s crack on.
Now, if you read what I wrote last time you’ll know that I’m attempting to address the Nuckelavee Grimm and how I feel like it was misused in RWBY Volume 4. If you’re jumping on now, a quick recap. I feel like the Nuckelavee Grimm was so goddam cool and had such a good build up that it was a disappointment to see it die in less than 10 minutes. So, in my insanity I decided to write about how I would do it.Continue reading The Nuckelavee Grimm: Part Two
I started watching Dragon Ball (DB) a few weeks ago. I love the screaming, power up, energy blasting madness that is Dragon Ball Z (DBZ), but had never seen its roots: DB, Goku as a kid. DB is very entertaining and follows Goku, Krillin, and Bulma (among others) learning martial arts, exploring the wacky earth they live in, and finding dragon balls. I hit a certain point and started to miss the epic battles of DBZ, and I knew that its sequel Dragon Ball Super (DBS) had come out fairly recently, so I started watching that as well. In doing that I came across two points in the story that mirror each other, and I think can resonate with us and teach us something. Never believe you are the best.
