day 3 T-o problem

I would usually have an anime marathon on Sundays however,  today i went to see a friend have not seen in a long time (thinking i would get back in time). When I decided to go home my mother called and said that my nephew had a seizure and had to be rushed to hospital (meaning that I had to watch the dog).

when they got back I was about to go and watch some until they turn to me and say “we are going out tonight bye” O_O You could have told me that!

T_T I spent my entire afternoon and evening watching a dog.

If I had my dungeon’s masters guide I would have probably spent the night drawing maps.

*I almost have players guide and the monster manual memorized.*

update: ^-o I’m better.

I talked to DB today and he managed to make sense of my mind (^-^ I love him).

*Pull out the figurative plunger and clear my head of sludge.*

XD I now know my ring size!

O_O It did raise an interesting question between me and DB, How do engagement rings work?

DB: “Do I get one?”

Icy: “traditionally it’s only the female.”

DB: “wonder why?”

Icy: “I think it represents that you own me, that’s why the father traditionally gives me away.”

DB: “I guess people did marry more for business reasons in the olden days. I don’t want to own you, I just want people to know that you are to be wed and in my head that means I should have one too.”

Icy: “why?”

DB: “^_^ It’s a symbol that I’m off the market and about to be wed to you.”

Icy: “It’s always been a tradition that has perplexed me.”

I was looking though my London photos and this one cracked me up.

post card pg

 

O_O It looks like a postcard for pigeons (why did I leave so much space?).

update: bad news.

Think I need a week off.

I’m having violent thoughts again thanks to the many questions flying around my head.

I need to reaffirm my world of neutrality in my brain (tie myself back to earth).

I will return soon as I can find out what’s coursing me this much pain (there is a big debate going on in my head at the moment). 
 additional: T_T  might just be Premenstrual syndrome.

dropping Your lie in April

CaptureI tried! I really, really tried to like this anime. TT-TT

I just can’t get past the emotionally/physical abusive aspect of it (it’s leaving a horrible taste in my mouth every time I watch it).

T-o she bullied him into a in contest that he didn’t want to play and then she has the goal to say it his fault she’s stressed? Y_Y he told you he can’t hear music and he told you he did not want to be on stage. Oh, you have to love the fact  she physical attacks him while trying to learn a song they never practiced together….like it would have mattered.  Even during the performance she showed that she was not trying to stray in tempo with him (she speeds up randomly), when her partner changes tone she arrogantly refuse to match up.

I can’t see her as anything more than a jerk (the show wants you to think she is in the right).

I’m sorry if you like this anime but, I just couldn’t take anymore (I’d much rather drop it then just complain about the same problems ever 6 episodes).

 

Parasyte -the maxim- 25% impression

Capture“He not picking up his phone” T-o and none of his friends or “girlfriend” thought they should visit him and see how he was???

I’m not quite sure what to say about this anime?

Do I find it entertaining? Answer: yes

Why? Answer: Because I like Migi……..and that’s it.

Part from Shinchi’s parents everyone ells feels really bland with very little personality to separate them form the backgrounds (I can’t even be bothered to learn their names).

*“I can feel how much you care for your family” I don’t think emotions literally come from the heart.*

I’m only watching it for the different monster scenarios by this point (I don’t know if this show will be able to keep my interest for another 18 episodes).

Girl Friend BETA midway impression

CaptureO_O I made it to episode 6 (that was hard).

I’m amazed that this anime has managed to have enough going on in order to keep itself out of my meh rating. Don’t get me wrong this anime dose make my brain leak out of my ears however, I understand why this anime is a mess and I oddly appreciate the organisation that must have had to go into each episode thanks to the stupefyingly large roster of characters.

Now!  I have bone to pick with you anime.  Y_Y You can’t say that the 4 character in your opening are the main characters if they are not the focus of any of your episodes!   The entire definition of protagonist is the principal character……which this show doesn’t have.

*Unless there definition of a main character is somebody that is seen in more than one episode.*

You never get attached to any of these girls because so far we have been introduced to a new set of girls each episode (after the 4-5 episode all of the females look the same and you start feel a little disorientated with each new introduction).

The girls have to face hard conflicts like not getting the last potato, finding homes for kittens, weight loss and letting people harass you with camera’s because they think you look pretty…..pardon! I think it’s from episode 3 (the moral feels like its endorsing harassment).

Each episode (for the most part) plays it really safe and it doesn’t do anything that could be considered bad outside of just being disorganized.

*T-o Did I say it’s organised and disorganized in the same post?  ^_^ I guess that just leaves us with organised chaos.*

GJ CLUB first impression

Capture^_^ I can finally watch this show! *23 minutes later *O_O what did I just watch?

There is only one way to articulate my first impression of this anime:  who are you people?

The best way I can describe this show is….er..Imagine someone told you to hold onto a metal post and when they left it suddenly started to move, would you still keep hold of it? (You don’t really know that person and you don’t have any reason to stay).

There isn’t anything to really talk about outsides of the random moments that I presume are supposed to be funny.

 

Yuki Yuna wa Yusha de Aru midway impression

CaptureI’m not amused private Yunna.

How does one describe this anime?

It is predominately a slice of life……and I’m ok with that. I know that there is probably somebody out there calling out foul at the moment “why is it ok for the slice of life to overpower the magic in this show but not in “When Supernatural Battles Became Commonplace” ” The power in that show are superfluous to the workings of each episodes (you could change it to anything/ eliminate the idea from the story and not much would be different).

*WSBBC is a good anime*

One of the problems I have always had with magical girl shows has to be this: how the girls react to their new potions.  I find that a lot of shows forget that these girls had lives before they became magical. Don’t get me wrong!  You do get the odd girl with family issues and another with boyfriend troubles but, part form them two most magical girls are loners with no real lives outside of their powers.

It’s also a bit odd that just after meeting this new member for the first time they are suddenly ready to lay down their lives for their team.

4 of these girls already have a strong bond because they have been friend’s way before they became magical, they have a club that they can still run after all this magical mayhem has finished, they have a better of exploring the physical/emotional damage the these stressful events will have on them after all the fighting is done.

I really want to know where they are going with this idea of each characters losing an important function of their bodies (blind, deaf, unable to taste, mute).

The only problem that I have with this show is that whenever it tries to do drama it feel extremely forced and out of place.  If you want me to understand they emotions going through a characters head you need to show me that they are constantly bothered by these horrible regrets (you can’t have them be really jolly and then flip to very sad out of nowhere).


 

Am I the only person cheeped out by the idea of one of my friend’s staring at a photo of me/others in there bathtub? Are you concerned that she has placed the photo in a transparent container in the bathroom? This ether implies she doesn’t want to damage the photo while staring at it in the bath (that’s too much planning for my liking) or she regularly stares at a photo of her friend while she has a bath(it’s creepy no matter how you slice it).

*I don’t really want to be staring at a photo of my friends while I’m on the toilet.*

 

 

TRINITY SEVEN midway impression

CaptureSentient steam is back! ^-^

6 episodes in and I have only just realised that he is the voice of Kirito (recently watched SAO on Netflix’s).
^_o I love how even mal doesn’t know what this show is about.

In this “romantic comedy but sometimes serious magical school story,” life as Arata Kasuga knows it is wiped out by a bizarre incident known as “Collapse Phenomenon,” which causes worldwide destruction and takes his cousin Hijiri Kasuga to the next world. To resolve the “Collapse Phenomenon” and bring back Hijiri, Arata enrolls in the Royal Biblia Academy. Waiting in the school are seven beautiful female magic users — the Trinity Seven. mal 

I don’t know what’s going on! Why should I care about his friend? T-o Do you know what this anime should have really been named: “Tit cricket with a side of naked ladies”.

*That would make a good title for a book.*

You could easily make a drinking game out of how many times the girls clothes vanish, boobs are squeezed and panties are flashed.

I’m interested to see how far the eroticism in this show will go (the last 2 episodes had some questionable moments).

T-o I have an upside down manga

I now own an upside down copy of “puella magi kazumi magica” .

*sorry for the lack of an anime post but, how often dose this happen? *

Puella Magi Kazumi Magica, Vol. 5Puella Magi Kazumi Magica, Vol. 5 page

 

I have such bad luck when it comes to ordering manga online. U_U

O_O I don’t know whether I should keep it or send it back?

It’s not unreadable, it’s just annoying.
