I blow the dust off my Logitech Dual Action, download and boot up an Xbox 360 controller emulator and run my recently bought Darksiders 2 for some gameplay!
Lots of swearing, plenty of exasperated outbursts of denial and disbelief and general stupid stuff. The usual in other words. Enjoy!
What a thoroughly confusing title eh.
Today’s video will have me talking about the interesting thought processes why I can write posts and tweets of hate directed towards an anime and still love it in the end.
It’s tsundere complex for fiction and it’s some entertaining stuff.
Also, sorry for this video being really late. I recorded the video early in the morning but I couldn’t edit and render it till late at night. So this will technically be released on Day 8 where I live.
It’s like what everyone is doing, the 12 days to Christmas, but much worse.
Today’s episode: Fate Zero and my insatiable rage at the ending. Screw you Urobutcher. You’re one big asswipe.
To get it out of the way, I’m not going to lie. I’m only writing this post because I feel terrible that there has been virtually no new content here for the past month except for my videos. But, I’m still going to have fun writing it so it kind of cancels each other out in a weird, illogical way. However, that being said, the writers of OP (excluding Selcouth) are once again quasi-free!! LessThanFree, SleepyNoYume and I’s prelims are over and we can post again (Disclaimer: we’re probably still too lazy to post or we don’t have time to post because we’re mugging our arse off for the “O” levels).
Either way, I felt bad for not posting so you readers can look forward to 8 posts by me soon, including this one. I’m trawling through my little notepad of post ideas and I’ve picked the 8 most promising that I’ve wanted to do for a while now. And some of them are reallllllllllllly belated. Like this one for example.
Canaan was an anime that was on my to-watch list for a long time. I added it about 3 months after I got into the whole anime/manga/Japanese thing but I only watched it at the start of this year (That’s about 8 months despite having downloaded it immediately after I chose to watch it). As per usual, I only watched it after a period of extended boredom and realisation that I had such an anime on my MAL.
I marathoned the anime over the course of two days but I was already loving it by episode 3. I thought to myself “This anime! I like it! This appeals to me!” as I ate my lunch. So yes, if you haven’t guessed by now (Firstly, you must be really slow in the head to not have by now), today’s post would be my review of the anime, Canaan.
On the day I write this post, I’ve watched both the endings of Legend of Korra and Fate Zero in the course of 2 hours. Knowing myself when it comes to finales, this was a f*****g stupid idea but I went ahead with it anyway.
So today’s post, whenever the hell this finally goes up, would be about my impressions to both of the finales of these wonderful shows I enjoyed. There’s going to be a lot of imcomprehensible text in the next 5 or 6 paragraphs so beware!
And if you’re too stupid to realize, there will be spoilers to both Fate Zero Season 2 and Avatar: Legend of Korra.
I almost stayed up till early in the morning to wait for the episode to air until I remembered it’ll be in Japanese anyway so it’ll be useless. I was really looking forward to it. Thank goodness today is a E-learning day for my school (When we stay at home and do worksheets the teachers email to us) so I had time to watch Black Rock Shooter and the other anime that ends today, Guilty Crown.
Of the two, I really can’t pick which I’m more upset over due to the fact they’ve ended. But Black Rock Shooter’s ending was slightly better than Guilty Crown’s in my opinion.
So now, let the final episodic begin.
Well, a delightful fruit on Twitter informed me that this episode would be intense and damn; was she right. That was such an enjoyable episode. Finally, most of our doubts are cleared and the main basis for the entire story laid out clearly.
This delightful episode starts of with Mato thinking about why she likes the Li’l Bird Li’l Bird Colorful Colours. Although the story does not have a happy ending, she wonders why she still likes it so much.
I thought the last episode was epic mindf**k but Black Rock Shooter decided to beat that with Episode 6. My mind is now sufficiently raped thanks to it.
Well, to start of the episode, we have Mato trapped in Insane Black Rock Shooter and she’s talking to herself about killing Dead Master, who looks like Yomi (I wonder why~). She’s convinced she has ruined Yomi and that she can’t fly any more. She looks around in the blue void of BRS’s mind and screams in anguish.
Black Rock Shooter begins transforming into Insane BRS at this point. She gets perforated by multiple chains and purple crystals/spikes and comes out of the maelstrom as Insane BRS. Shortly after doing that, she lifts up her now pimped out weapons and gets to killing Black Gold Saw. However, BGS evades all her attacks and shoves her great big sword into Insane BRS’s right shoulder. Being Insane, BRS rips her own arm off. The whole time this was happening, Mato was screaming in a banshee whenever Insane BRS was wounded. Cue opening song. What a great way to start the episode. I was eating when I was watching. Happily, I’m not squeamish about blood, especially when it spews out as black and purple crystals.
First, let me saysay “holy f****g shit, what was that addkgjlrvh *head-laptop*”
Ok, now that that is out of the way, the episodic can begin for the most mindf**k episode of Black Rock Shooter yet.
I have no idea how to start this but heck, let’s go
The episode starts with Black Rock Shooter going ape-shit on Dead Master’s armies, tearing them new assholes with 2 Chainguns. However, she gets smashed by a giant warrior with a hammer but kills it. Yomi sends out her 2 giant skull servants and they fuse into a giant 2 headed entity that tries to kill Black Rock Shooter. Black Gold Saw watches all this and then proceeds to vanish under the green liquid of Dead Master’s realm.
Mato and Yuu are then seen walking to school where Mato is hesitating is she should go to Yomi’s house to pick her up. Eventually, she gets there and presses the doorbell where Yomi’s mother answers, telling them to go away. However, Yomi comes out of the house just as her mother is done and they head to school with an air of dread between Mato and Yuu.
