So anyway this episode was lols. Yea I’m still watching this show. Last week’s ninja episode made me roll my eyes but I loved this week’s. The whole foreigner assimilation in Japan kills the entire “HAI MY NAME IS SAM” image some Japanese have of foreigners so I guess that ho got what she deserved. Although I honestly don’t know. I think some Japanese I met/spoke to actually found it easier that I knew about some stuff beyond what a normal foreigner would and it made it a hell lot easier to converse when most of us understood the conversation. So maybe this episode is only true to some extent, but I think some Japanese are happy that foreigners understand their culture and blend in! Correct me if I’m wrong though
Also that onigiri looks pretty large
This is the first manga I ever read that had to do with teen pregnancy (who thought this genre existed??) but I can probably safely say it might be the last one lol. The 2 teenagers Yuki and Shigeru are the biggest fking idiots I’ve ever seen. I mean okay it’s one thing that like Shigeru’s just a big whore and likes p0n0s but no, it’s like they wrestle nude and then somehow he manages to stick it in. At the same time, I guess he has no idea he’s sticking it in because they don’t even know what a condom is. Seriously?? You have sex without even KNOWING what protection is? :| If that wasn’t bad enough, they don’t even consider themselves “lovers” until she finds out that she’s pregnant. The normal thought in my mind was “ok just get an abortion like the other slutty Japanese school girls” but they’re all like NOO I DONT WANT TO SCAR SHIGERU AND KILL THE BABY. Sigh whatever In the end she has the baby and they’re just as retarded as ever (they bring the baby crib to school wtf?) The art is kinda awkward most of the time, and well the entire plotline is retarded (especially the whole evil sensei bit) so I definitely do not recommend this lol.
Yea to the point where I made this last night:
I’ve even started reading the novels (in japanese…go my kanji knowledge or something!) I finally built myself a new computer and things are running quite smoothly. So yea no more dealing with the likes of Dell. I caught up on Nihongo but I’m still behind other dramas because I’ve been drawing a lot the last few days. I figure once I get this drawing storm out of my system I can catch up on the other dramas. The only other anime I’m watching at the moment is Fairy Tail & Kaichou wa Maid-sama.
Just got an email from NYCC staff telling me they got so many panel submissions that my Vocaloid Panel was rejected. I don’t know if this is a mistake and they think that I had applied to the Comic Con rather than the “Anime Festival” section of the convention…but I sent an email asking to clarify if this indeed was the case. It indeed was rejected because of “no enough space” bah. For now, I’m still considering myself out, so I won’t be attending this year. Too bad I guess, I really had a lot of ideas for the Vocaloid Panel and wanted to show a few really nice clips for those who weren’t too familiar with it and the whole Nico Nico influence. Oh well I’m sure some stupid panel about yaoi and spiderman was a LOT more important amirite?
So at first when I picked up Durarara I had no idea wtf was going on, there were too many characters to keep up with and nothing made any sense. I was only watching it for the Ikebukuro nostalgia factor. But yea no computer, I figured I’d finish watching it and around episode 8 or so is when things really got interesting.

As I mentioned in my last post, my motherboard fried (eat a cock Dell) so I’ve ordered parts to build my own computer. Until then though, I’ve spent a lot of time doing something I haven’t done in months: Watch US TV So last night Kill Bill Vol. 1 was on TNT, and since it’s on like TNT rather than HBO or something, it was heavily edited. Now I’m not really a fan of violence and someone saying the F word 5 times a minute isn’t going to necessarily enchance the movie for me…but maybe it’s this addition of profanity & violence that is actually a “part” of the movie..because otherwise the movie felt really stupid to me.
I mean the first part was cool. She’s going to get revenge, she’s kicking asses. Then it all pretty much went to hell once she got to Japan. I don’t know why they kept switching between Japanese and English especially since Uma Thurman’s and that Chinese lady’s Japanese was fucking terrible. When they were fighting I was like “alright, you both can speak PERFECTLY GOOD ENGLISH, for the love of god why are you sitting here butchering Japanese……” ==;
The fight scenes were terrible. After seeing Kick Ass (which was also another violent and profane movie) I can say that the choreography in that was much better. What JP tells me is the Japanese fight was choreographed poorly on purpose to be like those old timey Yakuza movies. I mean it works for those old timey yakuza movies because they were made like 40 years ago. It doesn’t work for a movie made in the last 10 years, especially when the fight sequence with the black lady at the beginning was done SO MUCH BETTER. It’s like the fight scenes got progressively worse throughout the movie. It’s like I could almost see the fake cables they had to pull Uma around so that she “flies” while she does her bootleg samurai moves
I don’t know if it was the editing, the crappy Japanese, or the attempt to be like a 1970s Yakuza movie, but Kill Bill was…retarded. I mean maybe Volume 2 is better if she’s fighting back in America with nice choreography and less crappy sword fights, but I don’t know if I want to bother at this point lol.
