One More Week of May? Really?! *Sigh* Okay, Fine

This is the last week of May and I want it to be over with faster. Why can’t it be June already? Then I would be able to start season eight of my Wasteland Project. Season five of Black Mirror would start. Summer would be here. Oh well, I just have to get through this week and force myself to smile.

I will finish this latest book in my Ghost Doll series tomorrow. Next month, I believe that I will finish the series, Common. I will also start season eight of my Wasteland Project on the last Monday of June. (It’s actually Sunday, but it will be posted on Monday.)

I finished the latest season of Terrace House today. It started out strong but then it got weak towards the end. Maybe Tokyo will be better. I will be done with Ergo Proxy next month too. I will be watching the movie Erotic Ghost Story tomorrow too. I will also finish Love Death and Robots tomorrow too. It has potential, but most of the episodes feel undercooked. I can’t wait to start season five of Black Mirror and Synecdoche, New York next month. June is going to be great. But first, I have to finish May. Grr… Meanwhile, you can…

Can’t April End Faster?

One more day and April will be over! Then May will be here by Wednesday. I will be happy then. I ended Camp Nano early because I was bored. I finished a series and a story this month. I also finished volume one of Love or Hate.  I just want this month to be over now. I know I am beating a dead horse with this, but that is how I feel.

What is coming up for May? Well, I do plan to finish my Dreamland series. There is the season finale to Suburban Island II this week as well. I will wrap up the latest fic in my Yami no Matsuei fic this month. Oh, and I will start on my Night Hawks Files trilogy too. There will be stories that start on the fifth of May. I think there are other things too. But I will have to go back and check later.

I got to see Little last Friday. It was cliched but entertaining. I got some good laughs out of it. I would give it a Stream It (7/10). I finished One Outs on the same day too. It wasn’t too bad. It didn’t annoy me, but it’s not that great. I give it a Kills Times (6.5/10). Now, onto Ergo Proxy and a few more movies and series on Netflix and Hulu. While I do that…

April is Still Dragging On

Why is it still April? I officially can’t stand April. I wish that we can skip over it and go to May. Anyway, next week, I will wrap up season two of Suburban Island.  I will wrap up another story this week too.

I finish One Outs this week too. It’s been a pretty good baseball anime. I don’t find myself annoyed with. Afterwards, I am going to try and finish up Ergo Proxy. Also, I am going to start a British show called Fresh Meat. I finally got to see Crazy Rich Asians on Easter. This movie was so worth it! I give it a “Shut Up and Take My Money” (10/10).

Spectrum kind of messed up with our package. We were supposed to have the Travel Channel, but we ended up with Animal Planet. I thought Animal Planet was just a freebie. Whoops. It’s going to get fixed in the morning.

I just want April to be over already. Oh well, for now…

A Little Article I Wrote for Gamers Decide

For years, the genre of shounen anime has been filled with tropes. Some of them are loved. Others, even the most die hard of fans wish that they would just go away. Creators try to come up with ways to not make each trope drag down an anime/manga. One such trope is the overpowered main character. Why does this trope exist and why does it pop up in every shounen anime? Here are fifteen anime with overpowered main characters.

I Finally Did it!

Group

I finally finished all two hundred episodes of Sailor Moon. It was a long process that I began back in 2017. (Maybe it was 2016, I don’t remember.) I dove in on it. Then I stalled for a few months. Then, I picked it back up again. I literally finished Sailor Moon R when I was twenty-nine and started S when I was thirty. (I started S on my birthday this year.) How was it? It’s much better than the DIC/Cloverway. The more I watched, the more I realized that DIC didn’t understand the concept of showing and not telling. The Japanese uncut version relied on showing and not telling the audience what was going on. You could see what was going on and understand the story. Some of the edits didn’t make sense. (No, DJ Ranma S, I don’t care what you say. Even if they were trying to make it like Clueless, there were still some edits that didn’t make sense.)

The only downside is the filler. The ’92 version has so much filler. The first half of R is nothing but filler. If you can get past the filler, it’s a decent anime that doesn’t always follow the manga. Other than, it’s decent nostalgia. Sailor Moon Crystal corrected the filler and story line problem. It will a long while before I get to Crystal. Right now, I am going to watch One Outs next.

Rating: 6.5/10

I Need One More Film for My Asian Horror Month

I have been watching mostly Thai horror films this year. I don’t know what it is, but I think Netflix struck up a deal with Thailand and are streaming a lot of Thai horror movies. Some of them are meh and couple of them are that bad. Only two of them were good. I got in one crappy Indonesian film and one good Vietnamese film. No K-horror this time. I did manage to find some J-horror. There will be one Filipino film tomorrow. It’s bit tit-for-tat with searching.

I need your help. I just need one more film for Halloween. I am going to re-watch Tag and Kairo for the last two days of this month. I just need one more movie to wrap up Asian Horror Month 2018. I am open to suggestions. Post your J-horror suggestion in the comments below. In the mean time…

(Light) Rant Corner #7

I’m not too sure if I should do this. I’m not really angry, just really puzzled one this. It’s just one big mess when you break it down. The story goes like this: More

Controversial Album Covers IX (Pt. 21)

Year: 2002

Impaled: Choice Cuts

fzy8k0y

The Problem: When it comes to goregrind, there’s not much that can be considered shocking given the grotesquery found within the lyrics. While overtly violent, the genre has always maintained an aura of fun with tongues firmly in cheek. However, that doesn’t make album art like Impaled’s Choice Cuts compilation easier to look at, as it features a newborn baby lying in a pool of blood and guts with a hacksaw placed to its throat by the doctor.

My Take: Well, that’s one way to control the population. The gore doesn’t really surprise me at this point. (Just go back and look through this project through all of the gory album covers.) At this point, I am so numb to the shock.

Lore Gore: The Autophagous Orgy

dzgtadw

The Problem: Lord Gore tapped Japanese hentai artist Waita Uziga for their debut record, The Autophagous Orgy. Uziga needed no inspiration considering the word “autophagous” means “self-devouring.” The album cover is a particularly brutal take on hentai (anime porn) with caricatures of women drenched in blood in a sexual feast of human flesh. Lord Gore certainly live up to their band name with this album cover.

My Take: Ero Guro rules this cover. This would make Dir en Grey proud. A little note here: “hentai” means perverted. Americans are the ones who decided call Japanese animated porn as such. I believe it’s egore. I have to look it up later. I tried to look up Uziga-san, but couldn’t find much about him. He does have a manga called, Mai-chan’s Daily Life. It’s just like this album cover. So, yeah… (Plus, there was a live-action movie too. Oh buddy…)

In Need of Something

I want something exciting. I could watch some of the stuff I loaded up on my Hulu list, but I have to beat my laziness first. I could resume my anime watching again, but I’ve too lazy from that too. I’m slowly burning through my podcasts. (I estimate that I will be finished with one of them by the end of this month.) I wish to read more, I’m too lazy. Sims 4 is starting to get boring, but I think I just need a new way to play it. I keep stalling with Durarara x2 with Netflix. I have been watching videos from Double Toasted, but that isn’t enough anymore. I did watch a video on Angry Joe’s channel today, but that’s about it. I did video the Batman and Robin Hilariousity video from Chris Stuckmann’s channel for a little bit, but then I went back to work. Last night, I listened to Lara Thompson read that god awful Harry Potter fic, My Immortal, and critique while I played Sims 4.

<Sigh>

Maybe, I will just stuck up and get over my laziness and pick back up with Misfits. Wish me luck, but for now…

Rating System

I thought of this while I was in bed last night. I decided that if I ever get off my ass and start reviewing anime/Japanese movies/J-Dramas, I will put in place a rating system. It will go zero through ten and the names will be all of the following starting from ten downwards. These might be subjected to change if I come up with better labels for them:

10: Shut Up and Take My Money!

9: Download

8: Rental

7: Stream

6: Kill Time

5: Meh

4: Could be Better

3: Nothing Else On

2: Garbage

1: Background Noise

0: Fuck This Shit!

I think that’s good for now. And while you’re at it…
