Why Gun Gale Online is Hard to Take Seriously

https://youtu.be/uKcusKv2w34 Gun Gale Online’s inconsistencies in the form of weird mechanics and player behavior make its world and meta hard to take seriously.   The worst offender is LLENN’s ridiculous speed. She can dodge bullets mid-flight while the next closest power is Pito’s just above average strength.At least Pito’s 20-man killstreak is the result of … Continue reading Why Gun Gale Online is Hard to Take Seriously

Is Comic Girls Generic?

https://youtu.be/PZsD9l8084o   I know I haven't updated this blog in eternity, but I figured I should post this on my blog old times sake. I miss you guys *sniff sniff*. I'm more into making videos now, so if I do create stuff it will probably be in video form, and I'll probably post it here. … Continue reading Is Comic Girls Generic?

Anime Challenge Day 5 – An Anime I’m Ashamed I Enjoyed

Being emotionally manipulated - even in the subtlest ways, even by entertainment - is an upsetting feeling, but the real trouble is when you know you’re being played and it still works.     Kimi no Na wa, Makoto Shinkai’s most acclaimed movie, pulled plenty of my heartstrings but few of its punches in concealing this … Continue reading Anime Challenge Day 5 – An Anime I’m Ashamed I Enjoyed

Lucky Star Makes Inanity Interesting

What makes Lucky Star worthwhile is that it epitomizes the “nothing happens” anime and still brims with characterization. Each scene focuses on the characters expressing their respective personalities and exploring the group dynamic–creating a cast so compelling that its lack of a serious plot feels irrelevant. I’m not trying to copy Mother’s Basement, but Lucky … Continue reading Lucky Star Makes Inanity Interesting

Why is GunBuster so Good? Somebody Please Tell me

I’ve been planning to watch GunBuster for some time after I learned it is the predecessor to the likes of Evangelion and heard that it contains the prototype for Asuka’s character (the latter of which is questionable at best). Since I clearly love Hideaki Anno, with NGE, EOE, and Kare Kano all holding 10’s for … Continue reading Why is GunBuster so Good? Somebody Please Tell me
