What happens when you cross a considerable amount of sugar, endless boredom and an exciting episode of anime?
A F******G LIVE COMMENTARY OF SAID ANIME BITCHES.
I LIVE COMMENTATE OVER EPISODE 1 OF VIVIDRED OPEATION.
WHY? BECAUSE I GOT SO WORKED UP AND EXCITED BECAUSE I HAD SO MUCH FUN MOCKING IT I JUST HAD TO RECORD IT. F**K YEAH.
Have you ever been so spooked out by a dark passageway you ran down it to get into a lot area? Or have you ever walked down a dark road, covered in dry leaves and have the extreme paranoia that something or someone is following you when you hear leaves cracking behind you?
That is the human emotion of fear, a survival mechanism built into us (and most animals too) to safeguard our sorry arses when we’re in the middle of a s**tstorm.

Fanservice is an inevitable, unavoidable aspect of anime. In most shows, there would always be at least one scene or two with a female character being in some kind of sexually provocative situation, and we bloggers would thus term it as ‘fanservice’.Some bloggers even go to the extent of calling an entire show a ‘fanservice anime’. However, on the subject of fanservice, I have several points to raise. No ecchi scenes in here, move on
Look, I’ll be honest with you. I’m sick and tired of all the fanservice in anime today.
