I’ve actually sort of been watching the NHL for the first time since my beloved Hartford Whalers were uprooted and sent to North Carolina by a certain un-named peice of tash shit heap owner. Today, the Whalers were alive in my mind again as I watched the present team of their franchise, the Carolin Hurricanes, beat the Bruins in OT in a best of 7 Series Clincher. GO WHALERS! Here’s some awesome shit:
And here is my favorite player ever in Whaler’s History: BEST PLAYER EVER:
Dear God I teared up a bit with that Brass Bonanza playing (not really). If the Whalers never moved I would have a completely different life right now, as I would be an avid hockey player, have totally different friends, less teeth, and probably no interest in anime. Actually, I would probably still like anime. I mean, I’ve always liked it.
Well I watched a very good episode 6, and as I did, all of my assumptions that I had of the show following Oz’s escape from the Abyss came to fruition.
- Time in the Abyss is not proportional to time in the real world. Example, 1 year in the real world is a day in the Abyss. Kind of like a hyperbolic time chamber (DBZ).
- Oz is still the same age, but the world and people around him have grown older by x amount of years.
- Raven is Gil, just older.
As usual, I was right.
I'm pretty sure everyone knew this already.
As a matter of fact........IT ISN'T!
Honestly, these weren’t hard assumptions to make. All you have to do is take one look at Raven, and you’ll immediately recognize that it’s Gil. I mean, the second I saw him I knew it was Gil, and therefore assumed that it was years after Oz fell into the Abyss.
HOWEVER. We also finally learn about Oz, and how he is a key (or what he is a key to for that matter). Apparently he is the “Key to the Will of the Abyss!”
I don’t have a clue what that’s supposed to mean, but there you go. Also, the end of this episode left us with quite the cliffhanger:
That's Oz's finger on Raven's finger (which is Gil's finger) on the trigger.....so pretty much it's Oz's finger on the trigger.
A GUNSHOT is heard. The ED plays.
