i hate how the titles of my posts are all lowercase: a rant in 2 parts.

It surprised me the other day when I had to explain to a person that the purpose of anime is to create fantasies.  Humans have dreamed of other worlds to cope with their situation before long ago.  Have you ever daydreamed while looking out the window of a more stressless time? Say summer break when you went to the pool.  Or maybe you’re daydreaming about reading that book you stayed up late reading.  Thinking of something you would rather do than what you’re doing now is a very common coping mechanism for humans.

Comparing the visual detail and quality to Haganai NEXT is like comparing a Ferrari to a Shopping Cart.

Slaves to Society We Are

Poro, Junior Editor

Slaves to Society

We are slaves to society.  We know our rights and wrongs from society.  We wear what society tells us to wear.  We eat what society cooks.  We watch what society thinks is appropriate and allowable.  We read what society writes.  Because society basically intervenes in almost all sectors of our lives,  how we perceive and judge things as society tells us.  Including anime.  Sometimes anime blogs are eye-opening, amazing, and filarious (fucking + hilarious = filarious) like this blog ;).   It could be what our parents define as “peer pressure.”

In Engrish?

Society and Sunrise make and select what anime you watch and the aniblogsphere affects how you view it.

When I was an Anime-Fanling…

This has nothing to do with the post

The first blog I ever ventured to with my old Dell computer ( I was a noob then)  was Darkmirage.com.  I stumbled upon this by accident when I was looking for info on anime.  This guy was funny, awe-inspiring, and very, very critical.  He made taught me to view anime quite a bit more criticizingly and how to filter what sunrise fed me.   Instead of thinking “oooooo… pretty colors,” I thought “WTF this has way too much action and no substance!”  I realized that just because everyone watches Naruto doesn’t devoid the possibility of it being overrated, slightly shallow, and fanservice -saturated.  I was embittered and fascinated at the same time.   But from that point on, I didn’t enjoy anime as much as I did before unless it was REALLY good.  I didn’t enjoy Gundam OO, Code Geass, Nyan Koi, and other superficial, stereotypical anime.  I digress.

This is actually relevent

Sora no Manimani

Let me tell you another story.  This time  Sora no Manimani.  Interesting enough “mani” in Korean means many!  Because of this simple coincidence I decided to watch it. I watched the first 3 episodes without glancing at a blog I fell in love.  It was realistic, funny, and well astronomirific.  I am a nature-hippie who just is at awe  by non-light polluted night skies.   When I clicked to my usual blogs, including Bokutachi, I frowned :(.  They all said it was bad or lacking something.  Usually if a blog said that it was bad, I wouldn’t rock the boat and just reluctantly go with the flow.  But this time I ranted something like this: Fuck the aniblogsphere and screw the hell with everyone else!  No one is going to fucking stop me from liking this damn anime.  You got a problem?  I DO NOT care.  So there!  It isn’t corny, had no fanservice which shouldn’t exist in anime at all (I’m beserk ranting in wasp wrath), and superficial.  I liked watching Sora no Manimani every week and no blog (even this one) stopped me.

Conclusion

This has absolutely nothing to do with the post

I spent 10 minutes on something that needed only a minute.  But WTF.  It’s winter break and just because your favorite anime blog says that X anime  sux dix and should be nuked doesn’t mean you have to follow suit.  Don’t jump on the bandwagon.  Remember, when you watch an anime for the first time, just clear your head of all that pent-up excitement, anime hype building, or whatever that could influence how you look at an anime and enjoy.

This is not a season preview, this is just a rant

Chartfags amazing chart came out the other day as I’m sure most of you know by now. My thoughts while looking at it were ‘quality over quantity’, which is totally the opposite approach to the current season. Instead of the usual sequel laden nonsense that often appears, we have a season full of original ideas and recognised talents taken the helm. And yet, as fucking usual, we get everyone saying ‘god this looks crap, all moe-fanservice rubbish’. Now there is nothing in anime fandom I hate more than oldfags complaining that everything was better back in the good old days. This proclaiming that the latest season is rubbish is just a tangent from this thought-process. This year will obviously be crap because it’s further away from those years when I was wearing rose-tinted specs. So now, for your convenience and viewing pleasure, I’m going to explain why this upcoming season is not a failure. I stress, this is not a season preview. That will come at the end of this month. This is an angry Irish otaku person who likes anime. Enjoy.
