there is only one way to dance to this song
THIS WAS LIKE THE FIRST SONG I HAD EVER HEARD ON THE INTERNET
just the breath at the start of the song and i was singing along already fuck i miss this song
It’s not for nothing that it’s in a genre known as “hands up”.
Monocles and skeeball leagues!!!
From top to bottom: a Gawker article about the New York Times apparently declaring that monocles were the Fashion Trend of Now. Already pretty hilarious.
But then we go down into the comments section, and it also turns out that “Skeeball leagues” are a thing?? The last picture is just so everybody’s clear on what Skeeball is—those games in the arcades and boardwalks where you roll wooden balls for points and win tickets. Once again: SKEEBALL LEAGUES!! Are/have been A THING!!
This world is too funny for its own good sometimes.
The series of pictures I excitedly sent to Sandra once my Fuka figurine—ordered and been waiting for since about two months ago—finally arrived. She’s awesome for tipping me off to its existence and availability. Thank you!!
It’s a really nice addition to the overall collection. And with the past week of being sick (and just finding out today that I’ve got a sinus infection, w000t), coming home to THIS being on the doorstep was one hell of a pick-me-up.
Life is good. :3
How does that one saying go? Something like “There aren’t as many environmental effects in space”?
Some of my very first thoughts while watching came down to everything is gorgeous as hell, lemme lose myself in the world! Seriously, the visuals and animation are drop-dead beautiful. And then when they’re introducing a boy who can form fucking rings of rainbows from the palm of his hand, it just gets even more exciting, I’m practically sold, this may just be some excellent sci-fi!
Then they go into space, bring in the mecha elements, and just like that, the interest momentum drops. It doesn’t help that the scenery in space is downright boring compared to Bones’ Earth, plus the mechs don’t even look so fantastic either! And boy-uses-his-will-to-beat-up-the-enemy, personally speaking, doesn’t compel me as much as the intrigue of what’s up with that kid with the rainbow-forming powers.
Such is the way of my general impressions: Captain Earth is going for three aspects, from the look of it—space mecha action, the scheming of some diabolical corporation entity thingy, and the mysteries of teenagers Teppei, Hana, main character Daichi, and what the deal is with their “singularities”—and the latter one has me the most intrigued by a longshot, it’s not even close.
Well, there’s also the ultra-pretty visuals on top of all that…
…and oh my god, where could I possibly even begin with this?
Guess that’s what I deserve for having my curiosity piqued solely on the basis of “has the same writer who did Elfen Lied”. After the second episode, yeah, that makes sense; it’s starting to give off similar vibes hardcore.
For the time being, count me interested but worried—Brynhildr is so fucking all over the place right now in tone and quality that it risks derailing a meaty central premise with lots of potential.
I’ve been sick with a chest cold since Monday, and you know what happens? Apparently, it’s watching an uncharacteristically shit-ton of anime while resting up and trying to get better. And so that includes finally putting in the time to finish SAO after being on sixth episode since forever ago…
…but more notably, there’s also remembering that Crunchyroll has R.O.D the TV, and then watching the whole series in a span of three days. I’ve been seriously desiring to watch some Read or Die for a long time now, yet never did. Although I would’ve rather the movie or the OVAs first instead of the TV series, it’s all good, because R.O.D the TV was so entertaining and cool that it didn’t even matter!
Doesn’t hurt that the Paper Master powers are fucking awesome. Or that the leading ladies are all so lovable (especially Maggie; she’s a total sweetheart). Or that the theme song, in this permutation and all others, is an unsung classic anime OP as far as I can tell.
