To show that I’m truly unrepentant and beyond cure, I’m starting Day 1 with a post that has nothing to do with anime and is completely meta! How exciting!
Of course, as a blogger, I can’t just do factual reporting. I’ve gotta review the event as well, right?
Well, I think the post title itself gives a good portion of the post’s substance away; but to hell with that, let’s plow on!
This is another one of those posts pulled from the depths of the icebox of my Iphone’s notes, which in turned was pulled deep, deep out of my ass about 6 months ago. It’s a post I’ve actually been wanting to do for a while now and after feeling guilty for not posting in ages, I’ve decided to break the seal on this one and enjoy writing it (I do take pleasure in churning out a good, long post).
As long as I can recall (which, frankly, is not a great deal. I honestly can’t remember what I ate for breakfast when it’s lunch), I’ve always had a preference for the written work over the other forms of media. To absorb a painstakingly constructed plot and to ease the consumption like a book can is a sensation that no other forms of media have yet to let me experience. Something about holding a physical copy of fiction and to slowly work your way through it at your own pace just clicks with me.
Thus, I’ve decided to write a post today to explain why I watch such a scarce handful of anime over the huge amount of manga I read. I’ve been asked that question a fair amour after all
Inspiration; it’s the thing that drives us forward as humans, but just how important is it?
AKB0048 may have been terribly panned by both critic and fan alike, but these people are all sheeple. Just following along with what others have said or done. But what many of these people have not done is to simply, watch the show for what it is, and then examine what lies underneath its cutesy exterior to come to the unmistakable, undeniable conclusion that the show, AKB0048, is fucking brilliant.
As the anime started, I heard the cheesy sounding school flute tune, then these 4 girls just appeared and talked to each other sideways, in the most awkward way possible.
“This is Xebec, after all…” I told myself. However, despite that horrid opening, I find myself conflicted and divided as to what I think about the show.
This post is partially a follow-up to my previous post on why I don’t watch “generic” anime (Yes, the one with loads of comments) and also partially to discuss my views on a certain matter at hand. You see, I’ve been having some really deep conversations with my friends and such lately and one of the points they brought up was that I happen to be very vocal about my opinions on anything. As they said, I was frank to the extent I seemed to be a dick.
