Wolf's Rain » series thoughts

Finished watching Wolfs Rain. I always find it hard to sum up my thought on anime like this that's so full of philosophy and open to so many interpretations.

on one hand it can easily be argued that it has a very sad un-satisfactory ending but on the other there are so many ways to interpret events it will be stuck in my head for days and you absolutely care about each and every character.

my one genuine criticism is that its very slow paced and can he hard to watch up until episode 18 but the second half of the anime is absolutely gripping.

all in all if a show can make me think about the story after the credits roll and you cared about the characters then its Great.

now on to my next problem. what to watch next from my ever expanding backlog. Gantz or Code Geass season 2 , or do i finally open that Bleach season 1 boxset thats been taunting me for months.

General Discussion » Light and Lelouch- Are they really that similar?

@sharingan_eyes said:
@Lemegeton300:  
 

my thoughts exactly.  Light was fuelled only by his only Ego and his narcissism whereas Lelouch had an honorable purpose. Yes that purpose and his motivations were not exactly original but that is not always a bad thing if the story is well written and executed. 

this is the one thing that always annoyed me when Lelouch fans would claim Lelouch's motives were more honorable, i say, so what? just because one has a more honorable motive doesn't necessarily make them a better character 

i think the morality makes him more relatable to a lot of people and that makes him a better character in their eyes.

General Discussion » Light and Lelouch- Are they really that similar?

@sharingan_eyes said:
@Lemegeton300:  
 

there are similarities but personally i found lelouch a genuinely interesting character , and light was not likeable in any way.  
i think that at the end of the day Lelouch regretted his more heinous actions but knew they were necessary whereas light never showed any signs of regret. 

i actually found Light to be more interesting, i mean if you look at Lelouch, he's the typical anti hero, fighting for equality, and freedom, and blah blah, not to belittle his goals, but they're boring, you see it in many forms of media, like Robin Hood, or V from V for Vendetta, or any other rebel opposing a dictating force, Light on the other hand is very unique, i can't think of a show where the villain of the story is it's main focus point, Light is an irredeemable monster, a sociopath who cares for only himself, yet i followed him every step of the way, i found how he would justify his actions in his own mind interesting, i love how he thought every single step out, and how his mind worked, sure Lelouch is the character your'e SUPPOSED to like more, however Light imo is the more interesting of the two

dont get me wrong Light is a great character in his own right and he was very entertaining and interesting for the most part, but for me Light was at his best and was more entertaining when you put him up against L. The contrast between Light and L and the battle of wits between them was the highlight of the show for me and when the L arc ended the focus became all about Light and i lost interest in the show soon after that.

Two major differences between the two: -Lulu had motivation in his grand plans to kick Britannia to the curb while Light was just bored.-Lulu still showed remorse and concern for those close to him while masquerading under his alter ego. Light gave in to megalomania thanks to the Death Note.

my thoughts exactly.  Light was fuelled only by his only Ego and his narcissism whereas Lelouch had an honorable purpose. Yes that purpose and his motivations were not exactly original but that is not always a bad thing if the story is well written and executed.

Off-Topic » Wold Football (FIFA) vs American Football (NFL)

@Lemegeton300: No kidding. And it's funny seeing Ronaldo dive when Messi hardly ever falls since Ron is the strongest of the two. ND


 

 
Ronaldo is a disgrace to the sport and its beyond belief how people praise him and he is an insult to professional sportsmen the world over. 
 
i mean could you imagine if in an NFL game a WR on a 3rd and long pretended to get tripped or impeded by the Corner to try and get a Pass interference call. it just wouldn't happen and if someone tried it the league would not tolerate it. 
 
as much as i still love soccer it saddens me that now every striker who gets through on goal will go down at the slightest bit of contact. Everybody does it because they get away with it cos the leagues refuse to do anything about it

because of the lack of video referees and the amount of pussies who dive and cheat i think NFL is the better sport at the moment

Just Anime » Overrated animes


i think Death Note is waaay overrated. its good but not the masterpiece its hailed as. 
Evangelion for me also felt like it didnt live up to the hype.  I can see how it blew people away when it first aired but i only watched it in the last 5 years.

No No No a thousand times no. Live action animes are terrible 90% of the time. and FMA is perfect as it is. it does not need a Live action adaptation
