Types of Anime
Since I’ve made a Tumblr account I haven’t watched as much anime as I have until now, and I feel the need to say something about the clichés in certain genres. I think I’ll make a series of posts about them…
I’m currently watching Kamigami no Asobi; it’s one of those anime where the main girl is the only female (but there might be one or two chicks that appear somewhere in the story) gets shipped in every episode until she’s gone through every guy.
I don’t want to go all TVTropes on the genre, but I thought it was hilarious in AMNESIA (different anime) where they took everything to the extreme. The character colors and personalities were really out-there, but the plot circulates around the bizarre idea that her existence depends strongly on whom she is dating.
I don’t really have a point.
Sword Art Online- still on season 1
Episode 3 me wonder how foreign then players’ old lives would seem if they survive through the game and can go home. Maybe there will be a plot twist where freedom is a special item that only one person can have and everyone else dies. Then it’s revealed that true freedom was death all along.
My biggest fear for the living players is a tsunami or a fire killing them in real life. Japan gets earthquakes and stuff, right? I wonder what physical shape they’ll be in when they awaken. They’ll probably be skinny and malnourished without any muscle or skin pigmentation.
Maybe there’ll be a halfway home thing that helps them adjust from the game back to a reality that they may or may not recognize at that point. I wish I knew the procedures for treating people with amnesia or people who have just come out of a coma.
Episode 7 taught me that dragons use their nests as toilets.
Sword Art Online
I’m falling back into my anime phase and I’m really liking the Crunchyroll app since the website kinda sucks. I saw the first episode of Sword Art Online and it reminds me of a few other anime so I’m only a little impressed thus far, but I just thought to myself how jacked up that game is. So I was thinking the real world should just treat the players like comatose patients and feed them through injections and give them waste buckets and personal nurses while they play… Which would be awesome if the game weren’t so evil… Anyway, the gamers can just pick some heroes amongst themselves and send them out to win the game while the rest stay behind to fight boars and not die.
When car alarms go off, everyone assumes it isn’t their car.
I could probably break into some car and people will be all “oh it isn’t mine” or like “shut up automobile scum” or “lolz I bet someone’s having sex on the hood” while I snatch everything of value and stuff.
I was thinking people should just personalize their car alarms like ring tones.
Like “CHANDLER I AM YOUR MEANS OF TRANSPORTATION AND I REQUIRE YOUR IMMEDIATE ATTENTION BECAUSE I MAY BE IN DANGER! COME HEREEEE. I SNAPPED A PIC OF THE PEON THAT VIOLATED ME AND I NEED TO BE COMFORTED. I ALSO NEED YOU TO GET YOUR ASS OVER HERE AND CONFIRM ALL THIS SECURITY SHIT SO WE CAN GET THE PHOTO TO THE COPS BEFORE MY ASSAULTER FLEES TO CANADA. *plays dubstep remix of elevator music and show tunes until you notice it* “
Given that supernatural beings exist in a show, it is debatable that a god does too. However, the God depicted isn’t God. He can die? He’s on earth? He’s always on earth and in heaven and hell and everywhere. He can’t die. He stopped caring? He knows everything and we will never understand Him. Deadbeat dad? Really? Does anybody know any biblical stories of testing peoples’ faith in Him? Yea, we gotta love God, but we can hate Him too. Just because you don’t love everything about Him doesn’t mean He isn’t real. He’s perfect. Deal with it.
Then there was that assembly of Gods of polytheistic and Pagan beliefs. Why is there a war between them and the God of monotheistic belief? I get that believers would be as annoyed as Kali, for example, was at western faiths, but that’s ridiculous from what I understand: Polytheism essentially names incompressible entities. Different gods for different things beyond our control. To put it in terms of the beliefs of the religious majority, it’s like giving names to parts of the God. (I’m going to start calling the god in monotheism “God” and other gods by other things for the sake of shortening this post by a few words. If it really offends you, let me know and I’ll change it, but that’s really not what I mean so try to be understanding. Actually imma stop the post here.)
