#1: Vamps, Bots, and Ecchi Cheapshots…

(Ya see that #1 up there?  If you refer to my first post/my about page, you’ll know and understand what I’ll mostly talk about in this entry.) 

I’ve been watching Bubblegum Crisis Tokyo 2040 and for whatever reason I remembered reading this spoof this guy did on artificial chicks in anime (like robots and clones).  I went looking through google and after four years I’ve finally found it again.

Clicky clicky.

Yep.  It goes on for a few pages and features such man-made wonders as Rei Ayanami (from Evangelion), Chii (from Chobits), Gally (from Battle Angel Alita), and Ryoko (from Tenchi Muyo).  Beneath the page where Gally goes on her crazy rant, the artist (Vaz) goes on a rant himself about women in anime, and how they are used as men’s playthings (both in their stories and by the male audience.)  It made me want to read the manga for Battle Angel Alita.  It sounds like a tearjerker, but atleast I know there’s a happy ending…plus, Gally DOES sound pretty cool.

(That’s Gally, in case your ability to infer information has somehow been damaged)

Also…in other anime news (with me atleast) I’ve begun watching Blood+ after seeing the third episode on adult swim last saturday night.  I’m lazy and don’t feel like spelling stuff out (not today atleast) but I just have to say it is REALLY cool.  When I first saw it, I kinda paused for a moment because I wasn’t sure if it was related to the movie, Blood: The Last Vampire.  Research later proved that the show is supposed to be its sequel (though I’ve heard it’s instead an alternative universe story.)  Anyways, once I found that out, I went to go watch B:LV on Youtube (I have to see things in order, y’see,) and lemme just say…

You all need to watch it.  I don’t care if you’re into anime or not.  You need to fucking watch this movie:

Take you’re head out of your ass and click this. Now. And you WILL watch this, despite the fact that it is on Youtube. The quality is still good, and the fact that it is spliced into separate parts is of no consequence. What’re you doing? CLICK NOW YOU IDIOT!!

Yep….no really, go watch that ASAP, because there’s no telling when the moderators will delete that off the site.

Later I’ll give a more detailed report on Blood+, but for now just take my word for it.  I’ll give my thoughts on Bubblegum Crisis 2040 too, as well as this other crazy number I started called Elfen Lied.  The latter is really bloody and has an exorbant amount of nudity.  My eyes were bleeding by the third episode.

I’ve also begun watching Love Hina: Again!  …I’m not so sure why I’m watching it.  It’s not clever and seems a bit forced (and yeah, I’m saying that for a fanservice show.)  I don’t recall the original Love Hina being so…blah.  Or maybe that was just because I was in middle school when I watched it.  Oh well…

Now…to make up for my laziness, a few pics of the shows I’m watching.

Bubblegum Crisis Tokyo 2040

A very nice show.  Reminded me of super sentai at first, but then evolved past that.

…Cool outfits, anyway.

And be careful about those damn robots.  They take assimilation to a whole new level.


…I already said Blood+ was cool, didn’t I?

Elfen Lied

…Look, it’s just not for the faint at heart…I’d advise you not to mess with the pink-haired chick.

Idiots, why didn’t you believe me!?!?

Ouran Highschool Host Club

Woah!  Talk about a severe change in topic.  Ya mean there isn’t blood or monsters in this one!?  REALLY!?!?

No, seriously, this anime is very cute.  I know I didn’t mention this one before, but I like it alot.  I finished this sometime last week.  Expect this to be lumped into my major rant of anime shtuffs.

EDIT:  Click on this link.  This is the first time I’ve seen a website load up COMPLETE (not spliced into parts) translated anime episodes and manga.  The best part is…it’s FREE.  Blood+, Beck, Ah!  My Goddess, Bleach, Death Note, Ergo Proxy, Nana, Mai-Hime, One Peice, and XXXHolic episodes are on there. 

(Oh, and that Eragon movie?  Fucking sucks rotten eggs…so does Ghost Rider, too.  I only say that because I saw them both recently, and my soul burned in agony because of it.)
