I Already Saw K-On Season 2

Everyone’s making a big deal about the new season of K-On, but none of them seem to realize that we all already saw the second season. First, let me break down the first season:

  • They form a band
  • They spend practices eating cake and playing dress up
  • Mio displays several personalities, none of which fit her character (or maybe they all do, seeing as she has no actual character)
  • They go to the beach.
  • They add a person to the band
  • They spend practices eating cake and playing dress up
  • Mio displays several personalities, none of which fit her character (or maybe they all do, seeing as she has no actual character)
  • They go to the beach

Do you see a cycle here? I sure do. Pretty much, it’s one stupid thing after another, and I think it’s pretty fair to expect more of the same from K-On season 2, because the first season was filled with the kind of shit that people apparently like. That’s right, some people actually liked K-On, which might surprise a lot of you (it surprises the shit out of me). But considering that people ate up all of the bullshit in the first season, I expect that the second season won’t be much different. I bet I could write a much better second season….

K-On: Second Verse

Remember how K-On was supposed to be a BAND? I think they were a band for two episodes in the first season.

EDIT NOTE: This is not what I think the new season of K-On will be like, this is my version, which would be better (although probably still inevitably suck).

Episode 1: The girls have finally got a gig somewhere, and actually practice for once. Sawako sensei turns back to her original self from episode 5, and goes crazy at the thought of performing in a gig. She beats the shit out of the girls (figuratively) by making them practice hardcore.

Episode 2: The girls arrive at the place of the gig, only to find that they aren’t the only band there. Another band, from another school is there, and their band is a lot better. They also are more on edge, as they have short hair and are mainly punky.

Episode 3: Ritsu’s band (that’s right, it’s her band) plays good, and the punk girls band plays good as well. However, the Punkgirls (I decided that that will be there name) are cocky as fuck, and think that they are better than Ritsu’s band.

Episode 4: The girls are back at school, eating cake and shit, when suddenly, Sawakko bursts in, foaming at the mouth and holding a paper for an upcoming battle of the bands sort of thing, which is a few months away. She says that they have been entered and that they need to practice. Just then the door bursts open and the Punkgirls are standing their with their advisor, who was in a rival band with Sawako during their days in school. Upon seeing each other, Sawako and the other advisor immidiatly decide to use their students bands as a way to decide once and for all whose band is better.

Episode 5: As Sawako gets more intense about training, the girls decide to skip out on practice, because they’re worn down, and instead go to the spa. This will constitute for the gay filler episode so that fans of the first season, who seem to hate interesting plot development and continuity, can enjoy.

Episode 6: The girls seem to be losing interest in the music club, due to Sawako’s intensive and split personality behavior (ex: in class, she’ll be normal, and then suddenly become crazed when something reminds her of the band, usually resulting in her throwing something or someone against a wall or out the window). However, just in time it seems, the Punkgirls show up to their school and kidnap Yui’s guitar. Yui starts to cry or do something stupid, and the girls decide that they have to do something to retaliate, so they contact that girl who is in their student council, and she sets it up where they will preform at the Punkgirls school.

Episode 7: Masked, the girls perform at the Punkgirls school, and as believed, they’re performance lured out the Punkgirls, whose egos are huge. At this point, they notice Yui’s guitar, and after going song for song, take the guitar back.

Episode 8: Instead of a beach episode, or a hot springs episode, Sawako Mugi decides it best to train in the mountains. However, instead of actual mountain training, they just camp out, and Mio gets scared of shit. Nothing is accomplished, and everyone is stupider for watching this bullshit episode. Cmon, I have to throw in a few episodes of bullshit for fans of the first season.

Episode 9: After returning to school, the group discovers that the music room as been taken over by the Male Beauty Club, which consists of all of the pretty boys in the school, who girls lust after. They say that because they are pretty, they have the right to use the room. Needing a place to practice for the upcoming Battle of the Bands, the group tries various ways to get the boys out, all of which are humorous. In the end Sawako asks them to leave nicely, but they refuse, so Sawako throws them out the window.

Episode 10: Nothing’s happening……nothing’s happening……..nothing’s happening……..something about a map…….nothing’s happening……it’s over. People in the audience look pissed.

Episode 11: The battle of the bands start and both Punkgirls and Ritsu’s band are both doing good. They talk smack to each other in between performances. Then the final between them two takes place.

Episode 12: The final battle takes place. Ritsu’s band loses because let’s face it. A band made up of girl’s who are punk, Japanese, and have short hair pretty much rule when compared to Mio and Yui. But for the sake of making fans happy, I guess Ritsu’s band would win. The Punkgirls are pissed, and kill Yui. In fact, Yui dies in every episode, just like Kenny from South Park.
Alternate Ending:

Everyone goes crazy and starts killing each other. Sawako bites someone’s head of.

Even More Alternate Ending:

Krauser-tan from Detroit Metal City (who is now the same age as Yui, Ritsu and all them) comes in with a band, and abruptly kills everyone else with awesome death metal. Sawako bites someone’s head off.

So ends my half serious, half completly not serious representation of a decent second season of K-On. However, we all know that every episode will be the same, and if this season is anything like the specials (yes, I did watch them) then this might be the first anime I give a 1 (if I even watch it, which I probably won’t).

Bottomline? K-On sucks, and watching a second season would be pretty much the same as rewatching the first season.

Best Characters of Every Show I’ve Seen – Part X: “K”

Err-hem……okay so yea here’s K. Some characters chosen still kind of suck, but I had no choice. As usual, spelling doesn’t count.

Kamisama Kazoku – Tenko Kamiyama

Tenko was cool, right?

What can I say? I’m a rooter. Poor, Tenko went through so many emotions. What can you expect though? She may be an angel, but she’s still a young girl in an anime, which means she has no idea what the hell is going on in regards to love or anything. Honestly, she was the whole backbone behind this series. Samatarou was pretty much just another guy, nothing special. I mean, sure, he was the son of God, but that’s neither here nor there. This anime was really about Tenko’s feelings, discovering those feelings, and expressing them, and all of that bullshit, and Tenko fit the bill to the dime. I really liked this anime, and Tenko was awesome.

Kanokon – Nozomu Ezomori

Kicks ass.

One thing about the “quiet, business” type character, is that they’re all the same, to a degree. They all look similar to Yuki Nagato. Nozomu is no anomaly to this typecast. like Yuki, and many others, she has:

  • The blank star
  • The semi short hair
  • The small/nonexistent breasts
  • The quietness, aka, she speaks only when absolutely necessary

Unlike Yuki and many others, she is horny for the male lead, and she can turn into some kind of wolf spirit. What also sets her apart from the other Yuki clones (most of which will be my favorite character in every show that they’re in), is that she loves to make jokes, in her emotionless way of talking, about Chizuru, her rival for Kouta (Kouta, by the way, is one of my least favorite characters ever). She makes fun of her huge tits and her horniness, all in her monotone way of speaking. I love it. The show itself? It was okay.

Karas – Yousuke Otoha

Karas = Kick Arse

Ummm, excuse me, Karas was the fucking shit? Yes or yes? Yes. Karas kicked ass. One of the main reasons why, was the sick nasty fighting done by this bad ass main character, Yousuke. Not just because he can fight nastily, but because his armor can change into pretty much whatever the fuck he wants. Okay, okay, sick ass fighting and nasty graphics don’t really make a character, so how about this?

Apparently, Yousuke’s mom fucked her own brother (what is WITH Japan and incest?), and silly old bad ass Yousuke was the child of this conjoining of blood related uglies being bumped. Now, as you know, one of the main reasons why people stopped doing the two person tango with their own relatives is due to the problems which usually showed up in the off spring (hillbillies still haven’t grasped this basic principle). In Yousuke’s case, he was born with a problem. HE CAN’T FEEL PAIN. HOLY SPANKY DOODLE DANDY. B-A = BAD-ASS.

Kaze no Sigma – Kazuma Yagami

Now those are some Gyad Dayum Blue Eyes Shiyetttt.

So what’s the deal with this fucker? Why do his eyes look like they’re buggin? Well, this mutha fucka was banished from his family, because he was a weak bastard, and lost to a girl. Feeling like a piece of shit he has returned year later with some nasty fucking fighting skills, and he’s pissed. Eventually he doesn’t end up looking for revenge, which is too bad, but the fact that he came back with some serious skills to flaunt, thus surprising everyone in his old family, was awesome.

I don’t think I’ve ever stated this, but I love to see other people regret. Hmm, let me re-iterate, because I don’t want to seem like a completely heartless bastard. I love when someone counts someone else out, but then the latter comes back stronger, and the former regrets that they ever counted the latter out. For me, that’s a BAM moment.

Kemeko Deluxe! – Misaki Hayakawa

This was the only semi decent picture of her on Google? Really?

Wait, is this the first Rie Kugimiya voiced character on the list? I can’t believe it took so long, and I also never expected to put this character as my favorite character for this specific show. Basically, I didn’t expect Misaki to be on this list (although I never ruled it out).

Kemeko Deluxe was pretty good in my opinion. It was funny, I loved the OP, the characters were awesome (although I didn’t like Izumi, and her huge ass boobs) and the plot was pretty cool (I thought). But I’ve said before, I like characters that have a bit of an odd side, especially if these characters are female, and Misaki definitely is a bit weird….just look at the OP, around the 40 second mark. What the fuck was that about? She looked like she was about to get f-

Anyway, Misaki is only seen in her school swimsuit or her PE clothes for the most part, and that’s weird.Oh, and have I mentioned? Lesbianistic qualities (though maybe not full blown lesbian, yet). She often has…..provocative thoughts about Izumi, who she wants to she wants to play rock, paper, scissors with, but without the rock or the paper (get it?). Rie Kugimiya, we haven’t seen the last of you on this list, that you can be sure of.

Kidou Senshi Gundam 00 – Allelujah/Hallelujah Haptism

Hallelujah for Hallelujah........okay even I admit that was lame.

This picture was actually from Eye Sedso, that’s why it’s shitty quality. So why is Allelujah so great? Well, he’s got a split personality disorder, and that pretty much shoots any character right to the top of my list.

I’ve already shown that a character doesn’t have to be a main character to make this list (Taxi Driver in CANAAN?), and Allelujah never really got enough air time, I felt…..or I should say, Allelujah never got enough time to show off how awesom his split personality was. I mean, when Hallelujah took over, he became a killing machine. He became bad ass. He became….my favorite character from this show, which actually had a good amount of good characters, except for that princess….what a worthless piece of shit she was

I also found it funny how Allelujah’s GF had a split personality, but I guess they both came from that lab or whatever. Maybe that had something to do with it, or maybe birds of a feather flock tog-

Let’s do the next one, because it’s going to be interesting.

K-On – Sawako Yamanaka

Split Personality

Somebody made the picture, and it wasn’t me. I don’t know who made it, I found it on Google. Anyway, here’s another crappy show where almost every character was a piece of poop decorated with a shell of moe (but poop was inside).

I talked before about how split personalities were awesome (common knowledge really), well, here’s a case where it worked for a while, and then failed miserably afterward. We were really introduced to Sawako in episode 5 of this season (coincidentally, the only episode that was good). At first glance, it appeared as though she were some sweet teacher figure, but then, once she heard the guitar, she turned into a psychopath. It was awesome. “Finally,” I thought, “a character that makes K-On not as gay.” Well I was wrong, because that awesome split personality between crazy, rock obsessed Sawako and cute, fun-loving teacher Sawako became fused from the next episode on. Now, Sawako was a teacher who was obsessed, not with the awesomeness of rock and metal, but instead with dressing up the girls in costumes……every…..single……episode. This is the stupidest show ever. I should have made it number one on the shitty shows list.

Sawako wins simply because she single handily made an episode of K-On good, which is no easy feat. Ritsu was second. Mio and Yui can go die.

Kurokami – Steiner

STEINER SMASH

For some reason, I feel like I’m one of the few people who actually thought Kurokami was fucking awesome. The fight scenes rocked, the story was okay, the animation was fair……okay I only watched this for the fighting, and when it comes to fighting, all foes need to do one thing, and that’s GET THE FUCK OUTTA THE WAY, BECAUSE HERE COMES STEINER.

Just say the name….STEINER. That’s a powerful name, and unlike Kuro’s gay Exceed, which is just a normal punch (lame), STEINER (yea, I’m always going to capitalize his full name) has a sick ass exceed, and is ultimately more bad ass than anyone else. It’s called Stampede, where he splits into a bunch of clones and pretty much beats the shit out of anyone. He’s UN-FUCKING-BEATABLE……until he dies halfway through the anime, by making the ultimate sacrifice (that he really didn’t even half to make).

Kyou no Go no Ni – Ryota Sato

BANGERANG

You know, I had almost forgotten what made Kyou no Go no Ni so good, then I remembered: the funny situations tha sometimes came up, and most of all, the AWESOME, SERIOUS EXPRESSIONS that the characters would suddenly have. It’s like one minute they’re little kids, and the next, high school battle warriors (or something that doesn’t sound as gay as “high school battle warriors”….God wtf was that?).

Ryota was I guess the person I’d consider the best, because he’s pretty much…….uhh…he’s sometimes lazy, and he likes to fuck around….in short, he’s an average boy at that age. Honestly, almost all of these characters are simlilar.

Anime Films vs Anime Series

A post inspired by the poll on Cello’s blog, which is awesome in case you’ve never been there. Basically, this poll made me think about what I like more, Anime Films, or Anime Series. Personally, I think that the answer is pretty clear, as anime movies tend to always be superior to anime series.

Anime Movies

When I was at a party in Brooklyn this past weekend, they were playing this movie on a projector. Not only was I very surprised to see anime at a party, but I also busted in my pants, and then ignored it, because hey, I was at a party, and there was a fucking live DJ, so you know I was grinding with Asians (one asian....once) We mainly just made up retarded dance moves that kick ass.

Anime movies win here because rarely do I see an anime movie that disappoints me to the point where I don’t want to keep watching it. The worst movie that I ever saw was probably A Kite, well, statistically, that’s the worst, but I also look at all of the Naruto movies and One Piece movies for being pretty shitty. Still, those movies aren’t half as bad as many of the shows that I’ve seen. For a full list of my movies you can look at “The List” page up at the top.

So, what makes anime movies so great? I’ll list and explain with bullets today:

  • Plot

For one thing, movies are able to incorporate an entire plot, beginning, middle, climax, and end, into a short, 1-2 hour time period, which usually yields better results for those who want to take in an entire story, but don’t want to spend a day or so doing it. This also rings true for anime movies that are based off of a series, as the movie usually contains the same characters, albeit a different and usually unrelated story line. In case you didn’t understand the point I was trying to say, here’s an example:

InuYasha is an awesome show, we all I know this. Likewise, InuYasha movies are awesome too, in accordance with Glo’s Law. They never have any real correlation to the plot in the manga/visual novel/video game/anime series/pachinko game/etc, but that’s what makes them great.

Doesn’t that make them like…..giant fillers?

No you giant fuck-head! A movie such as InuYasha: The Castle Beyond the Looking Glass is not just a long filler. It’s an entertaining side story with a cool plot, bad guys, etc. I mean, if you look at it that way, isn’t any non-main plot related episode or side-story just a filler? I mean, what’s the difference between some anime series related movies and regular anime series filler arcs (notice I said filler arcs. This will come into play again later in this post). Wow, I got way off track.

Basically: Anime Movies have great plots.

  • Animation

Name me an anime movie with horrible animation, and I’ll tell you that I probably haven’t seen it. The movie with the best animation that I’ve seen was probably definitely one of the films by the great Hayao Miyazaki. Although I don’t know which one. I liked Ponyo because it was all hand-drawn animation, although Spirited Away was simply amazing. You know, I bet Miyazaki ends up dying in 2012, because that’s when the Apocalypse is supposed to happen, and I can’t imagine any other reason for an Apocalypse. I still hold on to my belief that Miyazaki is immortal.

Anime Series

Welcome to the N.H.K.

This show was fucking awesome and probably won't ever come off of my top ten....unless it does.

Now, when I say that I think anime movies are better than series, I obviously don’t mean that anime series are by any means bad. I mean, right now, I can’t get enough anime. All I want to do lately is watch anime (or play soccer, which I CAN’T FUCKIN DO BECAUSE INTRAMURALS AT CCSU ARE RETARDED AND SHITTY!). But there are certainly differences between them, the major difference being:

  • Time

Obviously, an anime series is going to be longer, and take longer to watch, than pretty much any anime movie. I mean, sure some anime are short (FLCL), but for the most part, you’re going to find it more difficult watching an entire series in one sitting than a movie. Of course, one good aspect of this is:

  • Progression and Character Development

Usually, due to the amount of time we spend watching an anime series in comparison to a movie, we end up seeing more character depth and development in series (except K-ON, which is just stupid). A good example of this is a show which I just completed, Touch (I’ve been saying a lot about this show of late…I also just watched Daisuke shut down the Angels, and was comparing him to Tatsuya as he pitched). The character development in Touch was phenomenal, as it should be, seeing as it’s 101 episodes (and two movies I have yet to  see……5 if you want to get technical). The plot can also be more intricate, of course, with that being said, lengthy anime (even some non lengthly anime) can also have drawbacks, and I think you know what I’m  talking about here….

  • Fillers

I already talked about fillers. To me, a filler isn’t a couple episodes that have nothing to do with the main plot. To me, a filler is one or maybe two episodes that by themselves have nothing to do with the main plot….well….sort of. I’m more defining bad fillers, because there could be good fillers. I already talked about the Bleach Bount arc (which I didn’t even know was a filler until weeks after it ended….I don’t read the manga…in fact I’ve stopped watching the show). This is an entire arc, and entire arcs can be entertaining. A good example of a shitty filler (which is the usual type of filler) would be this shit. Or this shit. Or any of this shit. Get it? If there’s a whole arc, with a bad guy, premise, etc, then I don’t really tend to get annoyed, just don’t make a shitload of Naruto fillers that are all one episode and all similar in some way (I still watched them all, just like a champ).

Fucking End

So yea, This was a filler. Good filler or bad filler? All in all I just like the way that movies are put together. I’m sort of running out of good ones to watch, so if you see any that aren’t on my list, feel free to give me some good ones. This leaves me with a question:

What do you like more, movies or series?
