THE PROMISED NEVERLAND midway impression

I don’t get it. 

T-o I feel like a div, I have only just now figured out what the numbers mean. I just kept look at the titles of each episode with a confused look on my face: 12/10/45, 13/10/45, 18/10/45, 29/10/45, 30/10/45, 31/10/45 (Date- month – year).

This anime is about a bunch of kids in a demon farm.

I don’t know what to think of this show. It looks beautiful and all of the sounds are perfectly timed….but, it just doesn’t do what it says on the tin.

I came into this wanting physiological horror, which I think it’s trying to give me. The problem is that its not shocking me or scaring me. I feel nothing for these characters (outside of me not wanting to see children killed).

I want to know how the mothers are making babies?

Where do they get there food from?

Whats with the flowers?

When it did try to shock me I felt annoyance, for at that moment a smart character was hit with stupid stick.

“He’s the bad guy, he wants to keep a good percentage of the live stock.”

I don’t really know how this is going to end.

I like kairosoft games (fight me).

It feels like when ever you want to play game that is small on you switch you get villainized for it.

game reviewer: “The eshop is filled with all these small trash games.”

me: “I like those games.”

I came from the 3ds to the the switch, meaning that I’m a lot more familiar with the studio names of a lot of these smaller groups. If you used the 3ds eshop you know there are lot worse games then what have been popping up in the switch shop (I would barely call them games).  We handheld gamer have are own style of games we like to play!

*Maybe they should split us into two sections.* 

I have had my fill of ‘Dungeon Village’ and am now moving onto ‘pocket academy’.

 

Think I like these games because they reminds me of ‘CIRCLE Entertainment’ games,  without all the horrible glitches.  I have a bad relationship with this company, to the point where I associate there name with: unfinished and poorly programmed.

T-o I spent a lot of my time trying to teach people on the miiverse how to play there 3ds games (I was basically there Q&A). The tutorials were really bad at telling you how to play.

 

kairosoft games kind of fall under the same category of: Don’t explain how the mechanics work.  “I accept your challenge game!”

T-o I don’t own a smart phone (I don’t want one).

This anime isn’t worth the effort of getting a new image.

This anime is about girls magically jumping into anime/manga to save them from being forgotten. 

Have you ever watch anime that has made so many dumb choice that you can’t fathom how it go created? That’s this show.

I don’t know who this anime was made for.

There are sections where I can go, “someone in there 20’s might get the joke” and then, “maybe someone who is 25?” to be followed by, “even I’m to young for that joke.”

When an episode tries to be action paced the animation becomes extremely stilted, along with the line work/shading looking nonsensically messy.

The episodes are passable, just along as they stick to simple story construction: bad guy + defeat =  victory.

The worst episode that I have seen is episode 7, for this one episode failed to do ANYTHING correct.

  1. The setting was all over the place.
  2. Why were they in a game to begin with? Why the nes?
  3. Tacking on the bad guy at the end doesn’t solve the pothole!!!!

WHY WERE THEY THERE!

Good thing I’m watching this with DB (you need to be able to have a good laugh when watching this).

Domestic Girlfriend ‘Drop’

She creeps me out.

I’m a little confused by this anime.

He has sex with a random girl, ok.

He has the hots for his teacher, ok.

How old is the teacher?………. I don’t know????????

*I’m sure she would be fired for secretly meeting on the roof and for have an inappropriate relationship with a student.*

The reason why I asked about her age is because she went with her mother to see who her new dad was going to be????? The school girl I understand, but a grown woman; is she still living at home?

Later in the episode: SHE LIVES WITH HER MUM! You’re a grown ass woman, get your own home! You’re a teacher, surly you make enough to get a flat somewhere.

Stopped watching

I’m dropping this like stone, no way do I want to watch a grown woman groom a school boy.

XD I got my first Tetris 99 WIN!

It took 77 rounds, but I did it!

I have it screen shot of it on my switch (I have no way to post it at the moment).

^-O I was so happy I got DB to text an image of the screen to my mum. she didn’t really understand, but still gave me a thumbs up regardless.

Has there ever been a better excuse to pour yourself a victory glass of your valentines present.

Magical Girl Spec-Ops Asuka first impression

Lots of blood, but no impact.

This anime is about magical girls who fight terrorist….or monsters, maybe? The show didn’t really make it that clear.

I was kind of hoping that the world was being destroyed by plushies. 

Here is my problem with this anime so far: Them being magical girls in the story is a little irrelevant, there is no real reason for young girls to become them or really want to be one.

It’s in fact a little strange to see a little girl say she wants to be one? In the context of another magical girl show that would be fine…. but here, it’s like having a 5 year old tell you they want to be in the army (I would be a little concerned).  Magical girls are established to be put in life threatening situation (lava monster) and fight terrorists.

Plus in this context why are there only magical ‘girls’???? Is it so we can see there boobs?

There’s blood, over the top bad guys, attempted shock and out of place eyeballs (they look so strange).

This show might struggle to hold my attention.

I don’t get it ether. 

This anime is about planes…..I think.

The animation is bland, the character designs are bland and are main lead is bland. Here are some notes I took while watching.

Let me get this right anime, are you telling me that he is surprised that a military plane is going to military location? Pluss your telling me that a military plane landed on the water and no military bases were tracking that plane? Or am I meant to believe that are main lead truly didn’t think anyone would come to help??????

It just seems odd to see a civilian jump out of his sub/boat onto a jet.

I have big question (15 minutes in), HOW DID YOU FIND HIM! “I followed him” no you didn’t, you where at home making dinner, that’s why you texted him.

“I have to keep you locked in my house, and treat you like a child, because I’m lonely.” *paraphrasing*  Was that really meant to come off that creepy, it sounds like the premise of a psychological thriller.

 

Think I have figured out what is wrong with this anime: It can’t transition. Whoever is writing this doesn’t know how to make one scene flow into the next one.  A lot of the time nonsense has to occurred just so the plot can move, which is problematic when your trying to keep a particular tone.

My favourite moment in this episode is a piano playing in the background:

Anime: “Are you feeling anything”

Me: “no, it just feels awkwardly funny”

*It goes on for way too long.*

 

“I’m going to tell you all my plans and show you are secret equipment.” WHY?! Because he stood by your fence? Your telling me those two are the first to walk there? He found it using his normal phone location app.

“It had a ugly crash” Yes that ugly crash that landed it perfectly on the water.

 

I have one big problem with this anime: If humans can’t the G force to keep up with the other plane, Why have a human in the plane at all?  Just make an AI that represents the Jet, That way you keep his obsession with planes more focused.

I want to see the plane, not the girl.

Think it’s about time I talked about this:An advert that traumatised me.

O_o It’s such a strange story, I always felt that trying to explain it would be like telling someone a creepy pasta.  These days it doesn’t freak me out as much, but I’m still really fascinated by how it happened (it could with a documentary).

 

Seeing as this happened over 20 years ago, I don’t think I will get in trouble for talking about it. Why would I get in trouble, because this incident ‘never happened’.

In the 90’s during a preschool television block a screamer advert was aired for about two weeks.

I remember this advert frame by frame, as if I had only just watched it. This is because someone told me that in order to beat a fear you must face it, they didn’t tell me this could also make it worse.

The advert was taken down and redone for a later time slot, where it was promptly canned for being too much like the first one.

For a little bit of context: Adverts used to be a lot louder than tv show, this was so people could hear them when they left the room.  How loud do you think they went for their advert?

T-o That’s not even going into the visual choices they made (It gave me a deep fear of the colour yellow).

^-^ It’s nice to finally find the confidence to get this off my chest.

T-o what have I watched?

Sometimes it’s good just too keep a list.

T-o I’m now stuck with the ones that don’t really grab me, guess I could start moving onto to midways.

T-o Monday and Tuesday are the days DB is in the house, I do love being down stairs with him (less likely to watch anime).

My Roommate is a Cat first impression

Are you sure that’s not going to make him sick?

Can I state for the record that I love the timing of that opening song.

We at a funeral, everyone is very sad.

^-^ Happy music time; Doop pa dooby doody!!!

This anime is about the writer and his cat. It’s kind of like dog and scissors, but without the violence.

 

I know that anime is telling me that he is a good writer, but is he? Taking one month to write one chapter? Not wanting reference material? Only caring about the ending and not the way/how it’s written? He kind of comes off a little useless, how the hell does this guy have an agent…or is he truly that close to his publishing house. Give me a feel anime, is he a mega popular writer or your everyday writer (you can’t treat them the same).

I don’t like people, but I understand people need to do there jobs. How the hell has he been advertising his books, getting them checked or even pitched in the first place if he hates people that much.

Plus wouldn’t a publisher care more about how many pagers are done in the current manuscript over how many chapters there are? They only care about the complete manuscript, why would they care so much about this one guys ability to write 20 page in a 300-400 page book in one month? “You know what will happen if he doesn’t hit his deadline” fire his ass!

 

When I was doing my art course are tutor told us 3 important truths you should always remember:

  1. Eat
  2. Sleep
  3. Drink

It’s very easy to forget to these things when your are focused on a project (even if you need to set alarm clocks for it, DO IT!).

One day, ONE DAY! You got sick from exhaustion, from one day. Y-o How does this guy have a writing  job? How could he be a popular writer and only now face this basic mistake (not pacing yourself).

Plus why would you give your publisher an idea for a book that you have no idea how to write????

 

Final thoughts: I love the cat, but hate the writer.

If it was his was set up as his first book I would have been OK with him, but telling me he is popular and written before makes his mistakes nothing more than frustrating.

T-o Sorry guys, love the technical side of writing too much (even if I’m not disciplined enough to write myself).
