Was that last jab racist? I don’t really give a shit, especially since all stereotypes are true. I could get into the fact that all white people are retarded, all black people love watermelon and fried chicken (who doesn’t?) and how all Asians are good at Math, but hey, that’s for another day, and besides, my lawyer Hershel Weinstein advised against the use of racial talk online after this recent fiasco.
As usual, I digress. Black Rock Shooter. A while ago, I was kind of excited to see what the hype was all about. People were going on and on about this OVA series (it is an OVA series, right? As usual, I have no clue what’s going on.) I thought to myself, “This main character looks pretty bad ass….black clothes, scar on her hip, eye flaming blue…I would probably love this!” And so, on to the bandwagon I went.
Today, not more than several minutes ago (with a couple hours break in between), I finished this OVA for BRS. Before I tell you exactly what I thought, here is another acute observation that I made, that will rock you to your core:
Yup, I win again. So what was this about exactly? Well, it’s kind of a split story between two…..well………stories (obviously). On one half we have the world of these two people going to school in a very boring and stupid slice of life story that makes me want to go suck a bag of dicks instead of watch it (it’s not really that bad I guess, I just wanted to say “suck a bag of dicks”). On the other end, we have these same two people doing this shit:
Personally, I enjoyed the fight scenes more at first, but as the episode went on, I began to see how both worlds wove together.It was almost reminiscent of the way that LOST put together their seasons. In LOST, there would either be flashbacks or flash-forwards or some other kind of flashes that interrupted the present flow of time. In BRS, the flashes were of the future (which was pretty obvious to me, honestly). As far as a single episode goes it was okay. The things that it lacked included, mainly and foremost, explanation.
Yomi seemingly gets whisked away to some random world, with a new personality apparently possessing her, and she stays there until Mato randomly is given the Black Rock Shooter “power”, and goes and saves her. Apparently, one gets whisked to this other world only when they become depressed when their best friend talks to someone else a lot more than them. At the end of this episode, that other girl (who was “stealing” Mato from Yomi in the first place) begins to show signs of depression, now that Yomi is back and front and center in Mato’s world again. What a bunch of poop. These girl just need to stop acting like pussies. So what, your friend has another friend? Get over it. Stop being a bitch.
One thing I really enjoyed was the animation quality. It was fantastic. As you know, I haven’t been ballsy enough to download torrents or anything at all ever since this fiasco, so I have had to stick to streaming. Of course, this isn’t a big deal to me, as I actually find that streaming anime is quicker, and these days, quality has become almost just as good as having a downloaded version (except for Tokko, the shittiest anime ever, which I still haven’t finished). Just look at this amazing quality I got to see:
Okay, in truth the quality was “okay,” nothing great, but what I said about streaming anime I meant 100%.
Overall, I thought this was okay, considering that it was a first episode. But I’ll say, it better get better, because if the second OVA is just like this one, than I’ll poop all over the place and smear it on the walls to piss people off.
I know I haven’t been posting much, but I’ve still been watching plenty of anime.
Okay, so I haven’t been watching that much anime, nor have I continued Aria yet like I said I was going to do. I’ve been busy working myself into the fucking ground. I haven’t had one day to sleep late in two weeks, except for this past Sunday, but considering I was sleeping through a hangover, I don’t think I got much of a recharge out of it at all. I woke up feeling like a gorilla’s ass.
What the fuck bro? I’ve got some money now, and this Thursday, I’m buying one of those new Xboxes. You know, the cool black ones that are supposedly better and don’t suck cock. And I’m not buying it off ebay again. I have one question…are they any good? Anyone know? I’m talking about these ones:
