And here it is, the soundtrack I’ve been waiting for ever since the anime was labeled to be one of the best animes of its season. Certainly it went off with some amazing graphic displays suited for every anime and of course, with redjuice as the original character designer, it certainly had the prospect of being one. The anime doesn’t cater to everyone, but as Cyborg and the rest of us are concerned, it’s all about your perception. And in that respect, I believe I wouldn’t be flaming someone when I said that I preferred this than the likes of animes like Naruto and Bleach. First and foremost this is my first ever anime music review so I humbly apologize that my opinions may end up being mediocre but it’s just the way I roll.
First of all, I would like to thank all the many readers we have been having this few days, we hit more views than we ever had for a really, really long time. So for that, I will thank you with moe, as I always have.
Anyway, back today’s topic. I have been spamming out episodic posts for the past few weeks and not shown you guys anything other than that. So for today, yes, it is another music/artist review. This time, about two fantastic songbirds and the singers I respect the most, ClariS.
Sunday is such a weird day, on the really down side, I have to go back to school, on the other upside, Nisem Subs get released and that is just totally awesome. After much discussion, LessThanFree has agreed to help me with the screen shots and will add his own words at the end along with mine.
Finally the episode where every, single, freaking character gets shown. We have the full cast in action at last and the action is already underway. For storyline progression, Araragi rushes home and haves a quarrel with his sisters who got into trouble. Talks with Hanekawa, has a bath with Shinobu and shares an awkward moment with Tsukihi and we realise that Karen is sick and in trouble.
Ok guys, for those of you who enjoyed Symphogear, I am terribly sorry. I did not enjoy it as much as I would expect to and the show does not seem to hold my interest. The first episode was so, so well done. After that it kind of went downhill a lot.
I will continue to watch it so if it does pick up, I will continue to blog. But until then, I will drop blogging it for the time being. And now for the first time, a negative post by me.
Once again, after a long wait, I bring you the next installment in my short story series, Forbidden Lilies. My usual editor has been hard-pressed to find the inspiration to do editing recently so this was edited by none other than LessThanFree. Give him a round of applause folks. Either way, enjoy the story!!!
Forbidden Lilies Part 5: At Odds
Aria sighed and put down her stylus before pushing the drawing tablet away. She groaned as she rubbed her eyes. A quick glance at the clock told her that it was 2.35am in the morning. She had stayed up the whole night trying to finish a commissioned artwork for her client’s website. It was pity she could not finish it today but she would not have been able to produce a quality product otherwise. Aria yawned and stretched as she continued to draw, feeling lethargic. “I’ll complete it tomorrow then!” she said to herself as she swiveled her chair around. Aria stood up and started to make her way towards the bathroom in her apartment when a movement from the bed caught her eye. Niko had turned over in her sleep and her crimson hair was in a fan around her head on the pillow.
Both the Appleseed movies have been on my To-Watch list for a while now and in fact, I had downloaded them quite a while ago as well. Of course it was only when I started watching at my friends house with SleepySlacker that I found out I downloaded the Blu-Ray versions but that hardly matters. They were still two of the coolest movies I’ve ever seen.
Appleseed and it’s sequel focus on Deunan Knute and her cyborg boyfriend, Briareos. In the future, a race of cloned humans with repressed emotions and reproductive capabilities known as Biorods exist amongst humans. The main plot of the first movie was to find a way to “save” the Bioriods as the renegade head of the Miliatary in Olympus (The city where the movies take place) destroys the facilities to prolong the Bioroids reduced lifespans as well as to create them. A device known as the Appleseed contains the information gives the Bioroids the ability to reproduce but the objectives of the Council that leads the city aren’t as simple as they seem.
The sequel’s main plot is around a madman’s plot to fully integrate humanity and Bioroids to ensure complete peace through any means necessary. His intention is to weed out those that oppose his plan and to induct the population under his control with Mind-controlling devices. So Deunan and Briareos have to embark on a journey to prevent the plan from going through as they are the only ones who know of the full scope of it’s intentions.
To sum it up, Appleseed is about Mechas, guns, girls and cyborgs (my kinsmen!!!). What’s not to like?
So here we are again… back on schedule. So it is time for more action with My Dog and Me Secret Service. Currently this show is not bad and more interesting than most people would expect it to be and the direction it is going is nice. It is getting harder to think of stuff to say at the start now… *sigh*
We continue with even more Soushi love and some deep family themes, both enjoyable to watch and stare in wonder at. He also thought us how to protect a message that is important to you. If all else fails, print it, laminate it and put it in a safe.
When we left of last time, it was the touching part already, however this show does not want to let go of your heart strings so easily but let’s save that for later! So far I have to say that I am extremely glad that PapaKiki has 26 episodes, because every episode just let you feel so relaxed, like it somewhat heals you.
Since we left of, Yuuta managed to man up and take care of the three girls, in the process, pissing off every single of the girls relatives. On the bright side, the girls will still be together. But I have to say that guy has balls, but does not really think ahead.
Well, this short story came into being after a rather fitful nap of mine on the way back from school. It wasn’t a dream as much as my brain planning out all aspects of the story in a still image (which is the final scene by the way). I thought it was most peculiar and decided to write it down. Obviously, when I got bored enough, I sat down and typed out the rest of the story. So I present to you, By The Light, a short Yuri story by CyborgCommunist!!!
Please note that this was also edited by me and not my usual editor as he’s been busy so the grammar or phrasing at times might be a tad bit odd.
By the Light
Rika panted as she ran down the hallway. She was determined to get to her goal as fast as possible. She had to or she’ll miss her chance for her plan to succeed. Thinking about her goal gave her a brief spurt of energy and she reached the door to the entrance to the girl’s lavatory. She bended over and rested her hands on her kneecaps as she struggled to catch her breath.
So after the rather long break we had, we are back! So, back to the show that was scheduled to be reviewed on Tuesday. Danshi Koukouse no Nichijou, aka, Nichibros. I have to say, as expected from this show, the comedy and stupidity are as great as ever and you will have many face palm moments throughout this episode.
However, there are moments when a teen like me reading this will start nodding and say,”I know how that feels like…”
