Tiger & Bunny

not voting, sorry? and 1 more...
Finally. An anime theme with Engrish so terrible I don't even notice it's Engrish and so doesn't negatively affect my opinion of the song!

But seriously, I like T&B's opening a lot. I didn't, before. I mean I like it, but didn't love it or anything. It's grown on me a lot.

I'm only on episode nine, but I'm enjoying this series a lot. Especially the animation and design. The entire blend of traditional and cgi is actually pretty effective, and I love the look of the setting and the characters.
Tiger & Bunny didn't really draw me in with its first episode. Or its second. Or third. Not until its seventh, really. It was consistently enjoyable and I loved everything about its concept, but it didn't really made me want to watch more.

I think a lot of that has to do with the fact that, again, I wasn't in love with the music. If there is one thing I value in anime it's the openings and closings and other music. Maybe that's superficial of me? I don't know. But, for example, the biggest reason I watched more than one episode of FMAB was that I fell in love with the ending theme. I didn't really get into Panty & Stocking until the transformation sequence (ie Fly Away). and then came the ending (Fallen Angel) which is still amazing. I decided to watch Soul Eater in its entirety three minutes in simply because Resonance is fantastic.

Anyway.

Bottom line is I'll watch an anime so long as I like the tunes, I guess.The two anime series I'm most interested in watching next (Bokurano and Toaru Kagaku no Railgun) were chosen simply because I came across their openings by chance and just became unreasonably infatuated with them.

But back to Tiger & Bunny. I wasn't really into Orion wo Nazoru, but I noticed that as I came to enjoy the series more, my enjoyment of the music increased accordingly. I don't know what's with that. I guess I begin to associate good things with other decent things, and it never stops?

Also, I like Lunatic.

...

tl;dr: dotcom likes japanese songs.

This guy wanted to burn away ALL MY MONIES. Does he think I'm made of Great Balls or something? Sheesh.

Finally caught the sucker after exhausting my poke ball reserves like two times and having to restart like five times more. Had to capture a new Bellsprout to put him to sleep in order to follow some advice I got online, but he fainted real quickly. I ended up capturing hm after my Primeape kicked his butt.

Right now I'm wasting time at the safari zone. Blasted Chansey and Horn dude get away from me EVERY TIME. But at least I got a Dratini, so that's cool. The zone can be pretty infuriating though. I kind of want to catch a venomoth and parasect to save me the trouble of having to evolve them, but I'm beginning to think that's even more of a bother.

Anyway.

That was your irregularly scheduled entry on a Pokemon game from eight years ago.

Who knew that learning to draw skeletons would make drawing easier?

Turns out that in order to figure out anatomy you have to figure out anatomy.

Weeeeeiiiiiiird,

Dear Transformers Prime

unmarked spoilers, warning, rants
Please do not end your seasons by having fat guy Fowler battle the Decepticon armada in a helicopter. You have lost all my respect.

Really.
You were doing so well.
The previous two episodes were practically my favorites int the entire series, because Knock Out and Starscream and Knock Out, but you had to screw it up by permanently screwing my willing suspension of disbelief.

Also you kind of tried to make Wheeljack's fate mysterious except YOU DIDN'T because we've already seen his BH toy. So boo hoo to you.

Also Optimus Prime died. Come on. This doesn't even qualify as a spoiler, it's like saying Optimus Prime is red. Who didn't see that coming?


I do wonder if this means Airachnid is dead. I hope so! That would make me happy. Though another season without a single Autobot dying makes me not happy (especially Bulkhead), I am at least thankful that Knock Out has survived (unlike, like, Breakdown :( ). I think I'd ragequit if he died.

Prime is terrible in that all the protagonists are irredeemably boring. Optimus is boring (though he was pretty awesome these last past few episodes, I'll give him that), Arcee is boring, Bumblebee is stupid, Bulkehead is boring, and all three kids suck. Ratchet and Smokescreen are the only good good guys. All my support goes to the Decepticons, really. As I said earlier, Knock Out and Starscream are my favorite characters, and I quite like Soundwave and Breakdown as well. Megatron at least is a more charismatic leader than Optimus. I want them to win more than anything else.

"Patch" was basically my favorite episode. It was like Decepticons: The Show. I was watching it and thinking all the while Oh god, no humans or bots??? And Dan Vs is starting soon again? I must have gone to HUB heaven.


tl;dr Prime has the best bad guys, really needs to kill off its main characters.

Turns out I suck at naming mons

I have now gone officially off the deep end of terrible Pokemon names.

I named the Machop I captured "Buttugly." (Because Machops are ugly as heck.) I could think of literally nothing better.

I am utterly uninspired. Heeeelpppp.
