Sometimes during an examination, one tend to think of things unrelated to the paper in front of oneself. These are a few things on my mind whe I took my final year examinations: Read the rest of this entry »

First thing first , the reason why I did not blog for almost 100 years is because , the last 2 anime that I watched were Evangelion 2.0 and Evangelion 2.0 . That’s right , no mistake there and due to that , I lack of any ideas or stuff to write about . However , how can I let down my precious 50 readers who refresh non stop for an update? Hence I decided to just pull thing off my ass and write some rubbish to get the gear moving .

To start off , let’s talk about why I watch shitty anime like Sacred Blacksmith and 11 eyes. Actually , you don’t need incomprehensible bible symbolism nor complicated algorithm to understand the reason . The reason is really very simple , so simple that I need to add in lines about how simple it is to make this paragraph looks longer . I am bored , that’s why . Asking me why I watch shitty anime is like asking a child why he is wasting his time sleeping and not study something useful .It is just that those shitty anime is really very easy to watch and is definitely more enjoyable than doing homework !

People might think that terrible anime is hard to digest but they are wrong . Terrible anime is very easy to digest because one can  ignore 3/4 of it and just concentrate on the other 1/4 of  goodness. That’s right , goodness , no matter how heavily flawed and generic an anime is , there are still some positive stuff that I can enjoy and enjoy better than studying or doing nothing else . For one , 11Eyes’s red night is watchable and Sacred Blacksmith’s action scene although boring , it is still better than something like creating gui for an application that I have no ideas of . Not to mention , enjoying 1/4 of goodness take lesser effort than enjoying 1/1 of goodness because 3/4 of the time , you are resting .

Then what about investing time on better series? Firstly , I already am and secondly , I don’t have enough energy or time to watch a 13 or 24 episode series . 2 episode of rubbish need lesser time and effort when compare to 13 episode of goodness. Time and energy only allow me for 2 episode of rubbish that why I take the rubbish , it is at least better than nothing right?

All in all , the reason boiled down to the simple fact that I feel like watching it , that’s why I watched it .

If you are interested in knowing why I am not adding more useless dump into the internet shithole these few day , I actually entered a dreamland for two days and was forced back to reality just now . After that , I understand that anime is a dangerous hobby because it actually encourages you to escape from reality  . Even someone as manly and strong like me was deluded by the heat and passion of an anime convention .It is utterly demoralising after knowing the fact that  these 2 day are just a short-lived fantasy .

In the end , I am not any better than all those obese and over enthusiastic loser afterall huh ? Whatever , at least I got a chance to take a photo with my favourite cosplayer – Itasu from Eden of the East.

Obviously , I am the handsome one right?

It reminds you that you are middling.

No no , nothing about fist of the porken star . It is just me , being late to the game but still shamelessly uploading this picture.

Whatever . 11eyes should remain true to its own roots and give us more pseudo blowjob .

My face whenever I have to tolerate anothe episode of that lisa show.

After watching the epic 2.0 , you can (not) advance ,7 main doubts of mine are cleared .

Doubt Number 1: Hideki Anno really suffered from depression when he created Eva .

Doubt Number 2: Hideki Anno finally recovers from it . Everyone turn into likable characters and Shinji became Simon number 2 with all those manly power and such .

Doubt Number 3: The tv series is complicated for the sake of complication and some of those so-called answers are just speculation by fans. Evangelion 2.0 is surprisingly to the point without acting all mindfucking . I finally understand eva thanks to the movie. I don’t need to read guidebooks , wikipedia ,rewatch it one hundred times , make speculation to understand what’s going on in the movie .

Doubt Number 4 : Shinji is not a gay . Shinji loves Rei and he rejected the manly kiss from Ryoji.

Doubt Number 5: Rei and Asuka  liked Shinji . Between them , there is romance entanglement .

Doubt Number 6: The reason why Asuka kissed Shinji is because she felt lonely . This was never explained in the tv series or I simply just missed it . Actually , lots of things are not explained clearly in the tv series , especially the relationship between all the characters . Eva 2.0 explictly make the characters say out their true feelings and such , hence clearing lots of doubt. It is really a “rebuild” of the storylines to make thing sounds more coherent .

Doubt Number 7: The movie explained third impact with more details. From what I can gather , Shinji awoke Eva 01 true potential and some sort of became a divine being . This divine being togehter with the revival of Lilith turns everything into energy or so to say , the original form of all beings hence causes the third impact . Seeles(with their mark 6) and Gendo motive is to create this divine being . As oppose to the whole adam combines with lilith talks in end of eva , the movie is more clear cut with it .

Others think that the sudden change of personality of Asuka and Rei are new elements . However , I think that those personality appears in the tv series as well , though in the movie , they are  just more explict with it.  The whole movie feels like Anno telling you what is going on behind the scene in the tv series by being more clear cut with it . I also felt that Anno want to tell us that the movie is the right way to percieve Evangelion and how all those wikipedia is wrong. He explictly show love relationship between Rei , Shinji and Asuka  just to convey that .Not to mention , he also makes Shinji less gay to clear all those gay speculation . The lack of interaction between Asuka and Ryoji in the movie might also hint that Asuka doesn’t really take Ryoji as a love interest in the tv series . All in all , it felt like a less fucked up version of Evangelion , the true end of it .

One might argue that the movie version is the sequel of EoE hence what I felt might be wrong . I actually accept that because I felt that the movie might as well be a sequel of EoE due to the last segment after the ending song coupled with various hints  . However , that doesn’t change the fact that 2.0 might be telling you what’s behind the scene by creating some sort of an alternate universe to clear things out while acting as a sequel on top of that .

With that ,I am lost of words , before writing it down , I have so much to say , so much to analyse . However , now I don’t know what to write  . If the tv series is anything like the movie , I might really jump onto the evangelion bandwagon . . The CGs are one of the most breathtaking , natural looking , smooth and simply the best CG an anime can get .

Really awesome movie , top ten material definitely . I might rewatch it again with Holydreams this coming Saturday . If you have not watch it yet and is living in Singapore , I recommend you to watch the first movie so we can go watch it together again next time . To make it more clear , Alaric and JingXiang , go watch the first one  then find another time to watch the second one so I can rewatch it again for the third and fourth time .

Oh this was a blank. Some technical errors? Sigh, heck.

Oh , and to every Singaporean out there , NUS Comic is the best comic dealer , fuck tenchi and comic connection . Why the  best you asked? Today , I bought a set of second-hand FMA volume 1-18 for 22 dollars( about 14 US dollar) and you know what? Volume 8 and 9 is missing . Oh my god , what to do ? Don’t worry , being the best comic dealer , they provided me with superior , first hand unwarped version of it ! Not only that , they throw in a brand new volume 19 and two short extra volume into it ! All for just $22! Can you believe that?!

Also , they helped me to get hold of Eden ,it’s an endless world , Genshiken , Wild Life , Bitter Virgin and Suzuka when every mother fucking comic dealer said that they are out of stock !Not only that , they provide home delivery for your comic without any extra charges!  When you ordered books from them , you won’t need any deposit! They have an impressive list of second-hand comic for sale as well . They are very generous in giving free plastic cover for their books too!

Not to mention , their owner/dealer , I called him uncle Sam is a very amicable man .  It must be the first time I used the word amicable , that show how friendly and awesome he is .

It is because of dealer like them , I don’t read scanlation at all!
