It had been really long since I wrote anything. So in order to rub some oil on the gear of my rusty writing skill which is always rusting in the first place, I will write some short snippets of thoughts I have.

#1 I don’t like the idea of romance harem series taking the route of doing episodes that separate every girl’s arc and restart it after every arc ends. I rather they converge everything together like how they did it in the past. The previous formula of converging every routes at least has this tiny hint of decency where the guy choose only one girl and stay faithful to her. That’s the only redeeming value you can squeeze out from this genre but now they destroyed it by doing the 4 episodes per girl’s arc. This genre is really taking a huge dive with this when they are already falling so hard  in the first place. But why do I care, I pretty much have outgrown this genre and is not willing to try any of it any more.

#2 The more I think about it, the more I dislike Haruhi the movie. Yuki Nagato is definitely the silent moe pandering type but at least she was quite a badass with her crazy skills. So what the movie did to her? They pretty much gave her feelings where she felt angst to show that she’s becoming a human. That’s all right actually but they render her into this helpless girl and strip all her badassness off like how you strip of a helpless loli. Pathetic.

Now I am ok with the notion of damsel in distress and being weak in the first place because we know that girls are almost always useless so it at least is a reflection of  true life but I dislike the idea of  letting someone strong becoming weak for lousy reason such as upping the moe factor for a character. The whole movie felt like an excuse to show us the cute blushing of Yuki Nagato and her alternate persona of helpless moe.

#3 Mobile Suit Gundam 0079 aka First Gundam is really an influential piece. I know because so many episodes are so boring and generic  because other subsequent real robot series  clearly ripped off tropes from it, hence rendering the First Gundam to this uninspired “I have seen it” robot series .

Due to that, I guess I should give shit to all the subsequent real robot series instead but it still remain as a fact that the first Gundam does not hold up well because you probably have already seen similar plot else where, that is unless you are not familiar with your usual mecha anime.

Other problems I have with Gundam is its shitty romance where people fall in love with one another with not build up. The Mirai X Steggler case for example was just awkward and I can’t help but feel like it is a cheap attempt to make Steggler’s death more spectacular.

Speaking about deaths, there are lots of cheap deaths in Gundam. The worst I have seen is Garma’s fiancé’s death. She died after slipping off a ship because she trembled too much. Matilda’s death isn’t any better. She crashed into a Dom for no reason and guess what, the Dom killed her of course. Slegger and Ryu deaths are the few that actually make sense and work.

Of course, there are also lots of positive for Gundam such as its brilliant comedy. I particularly like Dozle Zabi because he is one of the funniest character in Gundam. There is this one instance where the enemy is attacking him and he got really hype up and command his troop to advance. Pretty standard stuff but that’s not good enough for the magnificent Dozle Zabi . For someone as badass as him, you just need to end your commands by asking for more coffee. Yea, coffee. I agree with him that coffee  is definitely the thing you should be thinking of during a life and death matter because you definitely can enjoy it when your ship is shaking due to enemy attacks.

Now talking about comedy, what about episode 14 where your enemies are so friendly, they can wait for you to deactivate the bombs they planted and act as civilians to say hi after that because they are so enamored by your skills? Brilliant, just brilliant.

Not to mention, the G parts bullshit is very useful and hilarious as well because it allows the  creators to mock you by wasting your time because they know you definitely cannot do without the Gundam transformation/separation scene when it will be totally all right if the Gundam is already separated from the G parts in the first place.

Well, that’s the 70s for you but I do have to say that the final few episodes where they reveal the New Type super saiyan shonen powerup awesomeness were very interesting. Some of the manly scene from the Zabi’s families and others where they fought to their bitter end were well done as well. The robot fights are surprisingly spectacular even with its dated animation.

As for those who are interested in the Gundam Franchise, I really recommend you to stick with the Trilogy movies  as 43 episodes can be really gruesome to plow through.  Not to mention, the movie touched up a lot of retarded problems I mentioned above. They also discard the whole G parts bullshit as well. Generally, it’s accepted that the movies are better but they do discard some really great episode such as episode 8 so well, you decide.

With that, I will end off by saying Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Views on Loli :I don’t even like lolipop – a sweet which look like giving blowjob when people eat them so why will I care about some cartoon small girl?

Views on Censorship: It’s not like I watch cartoons for uncensored boobs.

Views on Moe: It’s great excuse for me to skip a show.

Views on Slice Of Life: It’s not like K-on will turn good if it was call Kuuki Kei or something.

Views on Japan:In the past , they made 90% of the great games , 80% of the great television , 78% of the
oh so weird and awesome technologies but now? Pretty much the same still but I don’t know Japanese.

Views on Dropping Show: No time for things that suck.

Views on Otaku: In this time and day where people pride themselves for being nerds and jerks , you just couldn’t care anymore.

Views on Stopping Scanlation: It’s good so I can flung my e-penis by posting pictures of 989 manga and on facebook to show my awesome collections and use it as an excuse for me to pirate more anime because I SUPPORTED THE INDUSTRY!!! YEAH!!!

Views on Simulcast: I am always regional restricted .

Views on Fansubbers: They have their fun , I have my free anime . When they die , people just rip off official dvds and simulcast so no one really care about fansubbing anymore.

Views on Piracy: Hey! I bought like 989 volumes of manga so it’s ok if I pirate things right? No , I am just cheap.

1. I finally found and bought the Welcome to NHK novel today . I hoped that it will be good because it’s manga sucks .

2. Loli porn gets you in jail for 6months ,  American please be aware . Though in Singapore , if I remember correctly , owning and watching  of any porn is considered a crime . Yea , our Media Development Access block porn site . Ha! And American bitch about freedom of speech just because they can’t read virtual children get rape.

3.Oh , and Nana (the comic) is a porn book in Singapore . In other words , if I call 999(our police number) to raid any comic book store that sells Gantz , it will be on the headline tomorrow. Something like ” Comic Store sell PORNOGRAPHY book , THINK OF THE CHILDREN!!!” and lots of idiotic parents acting concern will appear.

4.The Spring Season actually look awesome . See my twitter updates to know what show I will be following . I need to tell you what show I am watching because I have great taste and if you follow my lead , you won’t be sorry …  or so I wished.

5. It will be Chinese New Year soon and like always , I will not bath and stay at home , avoiding all the visit because I am lazy.

6. If you think that I only say that I am awesome and cool in internet , then you are wrong . I said it everywhere even on serious final year project presentation to all the school’s important people because I am really that cool , in real life and internet.

7.It had been 3 weeks  and counting since I last watched any anime , this shows how hardcore I am .

8. Wohooo , Cross Game manga is ending , time to purchase it . My biggest dream now is to own every single Adachi’s work but Touch is a hell bitch to get.

9.I think my first $80 per 3 month purchase will be the two Ghost In The Shell season box set . If I felt really good about it , then I might really stop pirating anime .

10.Kimi Ni Iru Machi volume 7! Ha , finally out ! Oh and Bakuman 6 , though Bakuman is getting suckier and suckier . The Deathnote pair always have this problem of having an awesome first volume then drag the fuck out of things after awhile .

Man , we are getting really lazy aren’t we? Let’s write something to waste time!

1. Major is getting a season 6 next April , man , and I always thought that Season 5 will be the last one but whatever , more Major is always good .

2. Next year will be the 3rd anniversary for Genshiken season 2 . The time range between season 1 and season 2 is 3 years as well . Not to mention , the new DVD boxset of Genshiken 2 will be out during this 22th December 2009 . How about we throw away Code Geass 3 and do Genshiken 3 instead? Volume 8 and 9 although not fucking awesome per se but it is at least fuck awesome .

3. 1995 -Evangelion , 1997- End Of Evangelion , 2001-FLCL , 2004 Gun Buster2 , 2007 – TTGL . If we follow this pattern, every two to four years , Gainax will be producing some great work . So does that means that the kindergarten show will be the next big thing? Well , at least it is my most anticipated winter series after Durararararararararara.

4. You will know how great those big house animation studio are progressing when you found out that all of them will be doing ova for USA games next season . Man , aren’t I excited that I will get the chance to watch anime for games that I haven’t heard or play of especially afer I have seen how awesome games adaption can be thank to that epic Shining Tears X Wind.

5.What! Accelerando will be extended into 4 episode? Man , 2010 is a great year indeed .

6. Aki Sora is awesome because it show explicit sex scene (like having one whole chapter dedicated to a sex party ) and yet is getting an ova adaption. Seriously , what is going on with the world?

7. He is Qwaser , A Qwaser .His blood of Breast Milk and heart of Iron . He uses breast milk to make iron . He , breast milk … … WHAT!

8. Who cares about Love Plus when you can get all the virtual girl friends you want from Tokimeki Memorial . Man , those good old days of me playing Tokimeki Memorial 1 SNES version while reading its Japanese using Chinese . I will watch every Tokimeki Memorial anime adaption out there thanks to that , in other words , Tokimeki 4 ova will sucks but I will watch it nevertheless.

9. It is true that people think that TM 8.0 is an awesome series because the summer season sucks and it didn’t have your usual moe fare and whatever , just like how Kaiba is a great series because it has unique animation and a seemly complicated storyline or how Higurashi is a psychological series because people are killing one another . However , I will say that TM8.0 is still a decent series in the end . At least I finished it quite willingly and episode 1 , 5 ,8 and 11 is quite good. Kaiba and Higurashi weren’t bad as well .

10. Decade list eh? How about the best hentai this decade? I have watched quite a lot of it albeit , I only completed 19 of them . By the end of December , I think should be able to churn out quite a remarkable list.

Remember this shitty category where I wrote pretentious stuff in the past? Yea , now I look back at it , I can’t imagine how I wrote those gay stuff. But yea , I am like really gay nowadays , so I think I will post again for this category. Here goes.

1.I heard that Genesis of Aquarion is like a orgasm series where people orgasm when they combine! their robot. Woo , must watch.

2. People say that every manga fans must have a set of Genshiken manga or watch the anime , too bad , I am not a loser . Ok , I am , but I can’t find the manga anywhere. T_T please help .

No , burst is not an anime or manga but a new category in IWICSYI where I will just pen down some short burst of thoughts. Hope that this new category will help bring back all my dead comrade into posting again  as they can just pen down their burst of thoughts too ! In other words , it is like twitter without word length restrain .

Ok , let’s get the ball rowing and act as if there is a ball rolling.

1.Cliche and reusing of successful formula is just a thin line apart , it depend on how you  see it .

2. I only read two kind of anime blog , one that almost has the same wave length as me (RIUVA , Baka-Raptor, DarkMirage , Furu anime panikku and star-crossed)  and the other one is those that are totally different from me. ( Moesucks and Minaide Hazukashi).

3. Until today , I never had thought that my knowledge on manga is so much better than most pro lookalike .

4. Reading onemanga or watching fansub to test out any manga or series before deciding which to buy sound as ridiculous as torrenting  movies so that you can decide which to watch in theatre.

5.Whining about anime availability issue is just stupid . Do you see me whine about not being able to play professional baseball or even normal baseball due to space restrain and lack of popularity in my country?
