My Love-Hate Affair with Anime



Pic: Some dude dressing up like Kenshin.Err friend.... you know Kenshin died of STD rite????

I give up.End.Kaput.I cannot/refuse to/would not want to understand the bloody names in Japanese anime anymore.And I do not understand people's crazy obessesion with it sometimes.It only took one week to break my spirits.Its just too bloody confusing, with so many names that sound like Japanese electrical product brands and/or single sounding syllables.Its a memory overload.

After watching a few, the premise looks the same, its like running around a trudged jogging path over, and over, and over.....first few hundred episodes will show you how great the hero is, and how everyone will wanna challenege him and how they eventually lose, and how our hero can take on three or four legends at a time...and the next few hundred will highlight how his 'ultimate move' isn't so ultimate anymore.

Then he will
a)Remember some stupid hidden move that his sifu taught only him, and not the opponent which more often than not was a fellow student gone evil(hint: don't worry, the sidekick will meticulously describe this in great detail to us who are wondering)

b)Preach to the bad guy

c)Use up all his energy to kill himself and the bad guy Kamikaze style.

Whatever happened to the good old days were Doraemon will pull out magical underwear that plays music from his pouch and save the day.When the bad guys can always be defeated using Super Saiyan x 5 million or something?And where violence simply meant some blood dripping from the hero's nose.

At least those huge, puppy dog eyes of the characters haven't changed.

:D lots of genre out there, one thing about japanese anime is the hero is fallable, if you think Samurai X is like an Arnold film of one man kill em all, try things like Air tv (love relationship theme), R.O.D. Tv (action & emotional tale), Last Exile (action & emotional) etc. haha

Mr. Eman...i suggest u stick to the action "sequels" i.e. Gensomaden Saiyuki which reminds us of the corrupt adventures to the west or the classic transformers. Atleast your childhood fantasies of seeing Optimus Prime wins a battle will materialise.

Optimal Primate, as much as I liked Beast Wars, I was never a fan of Mr Truck.

No Mr. Emman, i insist the next thing u should give a try is Bible Black. The anime kinda resemble the book u adore most. Suffice to say, it mixes pleasure with some dose of Ayah Pin lessons. If this doesn't go well with you, what are u waiting next man...get to another POST...

Chikyuu-sounds like a Malaysian fruit
Shoujo- 'show my baju?'
Arjuna- Name of character from the Hindu Bhagavad Gita.

Now if that is not mingled enough, I do not know what is.Consider this a formal request to pluck cikus.

Hindu, you just hit the jackpot. Well the story is something related to that history, in which I recently notice (gandeeva - the bow, Ashura, Khrisnan, Arjuna(the elite bow'sman) and many others) funny but most story which is based on scriptic history has very nice story background. I cant be the judge of the story, but if you have the chance well get this story(anime) from me, well do so. Anime addict am I not?, but I kinda interested more onto obeserving on how the director make up their story and what is his message through it. dont watch hentai or ero-guro unless for the sake of knowing it.

>.< cya emann, sleep mode now. oh yea, my bro said hi :)
