Wakakozake is a beautiful anime about a woman, who enjoys drinking after work. Yesterday we discovered that it’s also possible to discover the world of Japanese drinks and food with Wakako in dorama format! Two seasons and this is that rare case when live-action is as good as original.
“A little sister is all you need” introduces itself in such a peculiar way that I almost dropped it the first two minutes. Laying eggs little sister, whose breast milk is amazing and who doesn’t bother wearing anything at all. Turned out that everything is not that bad, though dick jokes are still placed here and there (a modern trend, eh?)
Off topic – had a dream the other day that Azumanga Daio got a remake, whith 3d characters and scenes like one where a school nurse is playing something like strip poker against a cat (suspiciously looking as Morgana from Persona 5) and that cat is joyfully beginning tearing the nurse’s dress apart – both are laughing. Hope that’s just a dream.
The season started with a bunch of pretty average shows and basically there haven’t been any eye-catching moments yet, though this one from Anime-Gataris was kind of nice =)
Halloween and Thanksgiving Day are coming, people have already decorated their houses using pumpkins, squirrels are vigorously trying to gain some weight before winter and maples are half-red. But there is still no signs of fall in terms of weather – 22-24 degrees and sunny ^_^
I’m a lucky person, I rarely watch bad anime. Nowadays it’s easy enough to just say “Fuckit”, drop the show and move to the next one. And it was a huge mistake that I didn’t do that with the anime, pretentiously called “Gamers”. Yeah, it’s not the worst series I’ve seen in my life (it’s difficult to move Tsukuyomi Moon Phase from its pedestal) but it certainly can be placed to the honourable second place.
This anime is not about games and not for gamers. If someone’s hoping that it is and brave to the extent that he or she wants to watch “Gamers” – they definitely just need to give a go to episodes 1, 2 and 12. And skip the rest of the show. Those 3 episodes are okay – and they are about people who play games! All other episodes… they are about stupid characters doing idiotic things. Even the word “stupid” is a compliment, though – because all Gamers’ characters are horribly, impossibly dumb. “Gamers” has no plot. I wished they’d had no heroes and heroines either. All writers managed to come up with are “comedy” and “romantic” scenes (I mentioned that this anime is not about games), which are made on misunderstandings. “Oh, my relationships with my girlfriend is a bit tense (for an absolute ridiculous reason). How am I going to resolve that? Do I need to talk to her directly? Hell, maybe I will try to talk to her at least? Of course, no! I’m going to talk to other girls saying things which are as ambiguous and vague as possible and hope that my girlfriend is listening to our conversations.” How many episodes is it possible to repeat that non very tricky trick? One, two? Haha.
I don’t know Japanese, so there might be a chance that such situations are really possible (I doubt it, though) and we just lost something in English translation. Nevertheless, it won’t change the fact that it’s nearly impossible to find a single reason to watch “Gamers”, except for masochistic purposes.
Any anime about gamers should have a pool episode
New Cannibal Corpse album “Red Before Black” will be available on November 3! They’ve released a new music video (Code of the Slashers) that proves that the band knows a thing or two about death metal (who would’ve thought, right?) The video is kind of brutal – so I’ve decided to post the famous Ace Ventura scene instead
Hadn’t been using any ringtones on the phone for years but finally decided that it would take place no longer! Now “Asuka Strikes” is proudly playing when someone’s calling and for messages I scare everyone around with “Tuturuu~♪”. What a time to be alive.
