Secondly you may read this and notice I attempt to inject genuine criticism and film theory into this blog. Disregard this as the rantings and ravings of a drunken madman. This blog is meant to be a form form of entertainment. There are spelling errors...many spelling errors as well as grammar mistakes and entire sentences may be unreadable. For this I am truly sorry, but that is my only regret.
Sacred Seven may just be the most stunningly mediocre show I have ever seen my entire life. I don’t know why I did this or why I watched this show. Technically I have already seen this show and thought then it was incredibly mediocre. I guess my theory is that drunkenness can make a mediocre show even better. Lets go and see if this scientific postulate proves to be valid! Also if you were wondering what I got drunk on it was Beck’s this time. I actually quite enjoy Beck’s and find it to be a quality product.
Well this show didn’t hesitate to get into some action. I got the Exxon Valdez on fire and a giant clay golem fucking shit up. Yeah why don’t we chalk this series up on the “Cold Intro” board. So Medusa has red eyes and this grey hair guy who has yet to be properly introduced is being Captain Obvious. So Captain Obvious gets poision by purple drank. Hey kid you neeed a purging stone to get rid of that and it costs 4,000 simileaons! Yeah life’s a bitch get use to it. Also an exploding boat causes the power to go out…that makes sense because boats are tied to the central power source of a city (not really). So you go outside to check out what that exploding sound is near where you’re living and suddenly you become the protaganist of a mecha show. Again life’s a bitch aint it? I mean I wish that all of the cra accidents I have seen were half as interesting as that. My life would be ten times more interesting if when watching a taxi cab run into a limo resulted in me gaining undescrubale power. Fuck...think of the bitches you would get if that was like real life.
OH FUCK! FUCK! FUCKERS! FUCKINTON! The colors, the montage editing, the rapidity of the camera movements! This is not good for a drunken brain. Also can I talk about the coloring? Well I will anyways. It looks like a piñata took a fucking diahrea dump on the animation cells. Wait a minute…did one of you put LSD in my beer? I'll find whoever did this to me and replace your baby asprin with heart medication!
Also I hate intros that feature characters that feature characters that don’t actually get introduced until five episodes in. It deprives you of any surprise when a new character is introduced. It’s also lazy. I mean you know when reality television shows that eliminate contestants and the intro still has people that have already been eliminated? It’s confusing and lazy.
Alrighty, I want to talk about cold intros in anime. They really are misused. I want to make a comparison to the movie Michael Clayton. Is it fair to compare Scared Seven to Michael Clayton? NOPE! But I’m still going to do it and my reasoning is show an example of a really good Cold Intro and why this anime is not an example of this and is in fact entirely a cold intro.. Parts of my reasoning hear is that Michael Clayton has what I would call one of the greatest cold intros in cinematic history. The viewer is thrown into the drama without really understanding what is going on. Then a cataclyism happens during what appears to be lull. Then the movie resets at an earlier point of the story to build up how the story got to that point. This is how these types of intros should be done. The problem about just moving forward is that it often leads to heavy exposition at the very start. Meaning a character has to talk for long lengths of time depriving the movie or television show of any actual scenes of action or drama. It bogs the story down and all but guarantees that the first episode is slow and uniteresting because SOMEONE is force to spell things out for the audience. The general mentality is just to tough it out and that the first few episodes are always the slowest and least interesting. In fact this sentiment is extremely prevelant in the anime enthusiast crowd. All I have to say to that is YOU FUCKING FOOLS YOU DESERVE BETTER THEN THAT! Live action television entertainment has already figure great ways of dealing with exposition in a ways that’s doesn’t bore you to tears for the futs episode. Fucking look at the first four oe fivew episodeas of Lost. If It’s just not compelling content you should nt have to put up with it.and right now ima tune out during these parts…especially so when I have been drinking the alcoholic beverages.
This bitch really just went up to Captain Noboy and ask him for special powers…oh wait this show needed a fish out of water segment so is that the loli would have to explain what the fuck is going on for like five or ten minutes. AGAIN this is not how a show should introduce itself. This is FUCKING BORING!Ten Seconds Latter….
Okay I was wrong. Something mariginally exciting is happening. Also Battle Maids and the protanist is Harry Potter meets the Hulk. This looks like it could be cool
Five Seconds Latter....
NOTHING! FUCKING NOTHING HAPPENED! They teased what could have been a potentially awesome action scene where the protagonist learns about the pure destruction he can create if he misues his powers and the loli and the butler just decided to leave and Devil harry Potter just let them! And what happened to the battle maids? Do they have some sort of transport to get them to the home base? Where did they go? WHY AM I ASKING QUESTIONS THAT HAVE NO PERTINACE TO THE MAIN STORY!
FUCK THIS STORY!!!!!!!!
Quick drunken question. The Medusa Head is turning people into statues and sometimes when they impact the ground they shatter. If you somehow gt returned into human form would you be turned into human form as parts? If you super glued a former human statute would it still come back to life in parts? Man Fuck Blackwater! They sjould have been getting all up in this voodoo magic bullshit in the first place.
Also go call in having the protagonist drive a moped. It’s not like I didn’t already think he was super lame already. Also some much needed…WAIT A MINUTE! Did they just have a stone statue have a sweat drop?
Whatever, all this talk of eating and getting eating is making me hungry. Anways you want plot summary? Shit happens and the protagonist becomes a superhero but he needs trainging or something to control his powers. Now there's this circle jerk feeling of comradeship and working to deal with out angst. Eevn druk I find this show to be incredibly boring.
This is technically old news considering that Oxford's entry for "kawaii" was added in the book version of Oxford's way back in Spetember 2010 but it wasn't added into the online and free version of Oxford's until September of this year. That said...Oxford's entry for the ENGLISH USAGE of "kawaii" is a little unusual let's just say and worth talking about:
Pronunciation: Brit. /kəˈwʌɪ/ , /kəˈwʌɪi/ , U.S. /kəˈwaɪ/ , /kəˈwaɪˌ(j)i/Etymology: < Japanese kawaii cute, pretty, darling (1477 or earlier; 1603 as Cauaij in Vocabulario da Lingoa de Iapam, glossed ‘thing one feels pity or compassion for, or the feeling of compassion’) < kafayui ashamed, unbearable to look at, pitiable, lovable, cute, perhaps < an old compound, lit. ‘face-aglow’ (compare modern kao face < kafo ). With sense B. compare Japanese kawaisa cuteness.(Show Less)A. adj.
Cute, esp. in a manner considered characteristic of Japanese popular culture; charming, darling; ostentatiously adorable.1965 N.Y. Times 20 Apr. 35 (heading) When East meets West Japanese call it kawaii.1984 S. Ramsey in A. Wolfgang Nonverbal Behavior (new ed.) i. 153 One student study compared Japanese and non-Japanese reaction to kawaii behavior.1999 A. E. Raz Riding Black Ship vi. 173 The kawaii style dominated Japanese popular culture in the 1980s.2003 Face June 45/1 A future cult classic? Who cares: it's just so goddamn kawaii!2009 LA Weekly (Calif.) (Nexis) 1 Oct., For those who love anything kawaii, there are countless varieties of candies bundled in animé-style packaging.
That which is kawaii; cuteness.1986 Wall St. Jrnl. 21 Feb. 21/2 Contemporary kawaii is flourishing.‥ There is no Japanese word for ‘cloying’.1997 A. Cooper-Chen Mass Communication in Japan ii. 20 The cult of kawaii extends throughout the mass media: cute stuffed animals awarded as prizes on TV quiz shows, cartoonlike voices announcing station breaks, soft-sell commercials showing smiling babies.2005 C. Stross Accelerando iii. 78 Languid fluffy pink tentacles wave at him in an attack of kawaii.
So first thing is no "kawaii" wasn't originally coined in 1965. That was the first recorded usage of the word by an English Publication. Secondly Accelerando is a well know cyberpunk book so get your head out of the gutter you sick perverts. Anyways Oxford's Dictionary has been adding a lot of pop culture words that really don't seem to have any real link to what we could call prevalent common English. In fact I hinted at it when I told people on FormSpring about this but I think this is proof that humanity is doomed.
The other day I Googled "Pachelbel d minor," as soon as I got to the d, it brought up "Pachelbel dubstep remix," at the top result.....
Society is doomed everyone. There's nothing we can do about it. We are all going to die soon.
I don't know why but this question crossed my mind recently and I haven't been able to shake it out of my head since. So yeah do you think there's some sort of a players union? For Gyms there has to be some sort of union. They'd have to be organized and certified for them to be a stepping stone before you enter the Pokemon league. The whole thing about earning badges makes it seem like it is a pretty official thing. But does that mean that Gym Leaders have some sort of a tenure system that prevents them from losing their jobs in light of being defeated by plucky little kids? Are they nominated by some sort of a body or union? If there are unions do you think their are OSHA Standards for Pokemon trainers? Like if there is an accepted age when people leave home to become Pokemon trainers there has to be someone or something that sets that minimum age, right? And there have to be standards for how Pokemon are treated that shit has come up multiple times on the show. I mean they already have socialized medicine in the Pokemon world so unions and player/Pokemon health and safety standards as well as regulation bodies would be that much of a stretch, right? Right?
So is the disappearance of Jimmy Koffing soon after his meeting with Team Rocket somehow related? Does Ash's Pikachu have to worry about getting disqualified or losing advertisements deals after being photographed eating Ash's pot brownies? Why would anyone care about doping in the Pokemon world when there's all that shit like X-Seed or Rare Candy? Do we have to worry about the 2011 Pokemon season getting cancelled because Professor Stern couldn't negotiate better player conditions because he's incapable of negotiating?
Oh my God...my brain is imploding on itself.
