Binbougami ga! ep4: her weakness is that she’s not a bad enough person

What a funny problem to find yourself in: trying to figure out if the person you’re with is an angel or a devil; a good person, or a spawn of misfortune that tortures the lives of those around her for her own gain?  Though perhaps I’m thinking much too deeply about this since the episode also includes a pervy monk who can’t stop obsessing over titties, and a masochist dog spirit that gets off on being whipped and having boiling hot water poured down his throat.  Indeed, perhaps the person who is just selfish, spoiled and oblivious doesn’t have the worst or most vexing of issues.

DKJ’s 2014 Resolutions

December 26, 2013 2 comments

It’s rare that I do posts that are personal. Generally, I feel that my “writer’s voice” should give you enough of an insight into what I feel and how I am as a person. But I also can’t deny that getting a little personal can add to the intimacy and entertainment. So here I am, committing to something before all of you now. I’m giving you my New Year’s Resolutions for 2014. Now what I’m writing isn’t just a bunch of the generic “must lose weight/stop smoking/stop telling others to f*ck off” garbage. And some of this will be properly filled with anime related material. I really do jump into the new year with high hopes for myself and those around me.

Now I did consider adding some incentive to these tasks by making a pact with Satan to give me the proper discipline and motivation to complete all these tasks, or I’d have to give up my first born, or promising baby Jesus that I’d give up the hot black lesbian pr0n to guarantee my success. But in the end I said f*ck it. I’m a man! And a man has to gather his own faculties and guts to complete his own tasks and handle his problems. Besides, this works better for my sex life and the health and safety of my daughter’s soul as well. And also I figured that all of this would be well worth it if in a year I came back and said I f*cked up, just to give you guys a chance to laugh at me.

Anyway, without further faffing about – here are my resolutions! Read more…

Binbougami ga! ep3: your morals are sh*t!

February 19, 2013 Leave a comment

Episode 2

I would say that Sakura Ichiko has become morally bankrupt piece of crap in my eyes, but that would prove that I haven’t been paying attention.  She’s what we imagine when the words “one percent” are uttered. She’s the epitome of the female women love to hate because of her good fortune and demeanor.  You could even say that she’s a guy’s worst nightmare and their natural predator, because as this episode helps demonstrate, she won’t hesitate to use a man for her aims.  And if that doesn’t work, she’d just as easily toss them away.  But with all that said, she somehow manages to skirt by by the fact that she’s actually not a horrible person.  Something deep down keeps saving her.  A horrible memory, a sense of obligation, or a small shriveled up conscience.  Sakura’s soul camps outside the gates of hell, resisting the void via the tug of a tiny string… and her massive surplus of good fortune.

Binbougami ga! ep2: if this is war, then you’re gonna need a bigger gun.

Episode 1

This show is just pure fun all around! To marathon this show would drain my soul into an abyss, for lack of energy. But in one episode spurts, the maniacally manic pace is exhilarating!  I was very curious to see how this Binbougami ga! would follow up such a well executed first episode.  Now I’m curious to see if the entire season can stay this fun.  Where episode one was a epic battle between strange enemies, with Sakura just barely winning through what would best be described as a miracle.  Episode two shows us just what kind of a mountain our “protagonist”, Momiji has to climb.

Binbougami ga! ep1: good fortune weighs heavily on your chest

Crazy recommendation number 3!  Binbougami ga!  And boy did I get side swiped by this show.

It’s pretty well know that many Japanese believe that spirits/gods reside in everything around us.  That kind of viewpoint tends to put other polytheistic religions to shame.  You have plenty of religions where gods take credit for harvests, the Sun, the Moon, pregnancies, emotions, the concept of war (a personal fave of mine) and many other things.  But I don’t think I’ve heard of a god of just direct misfortune.  And what do you know?  The anime has one… or two.   Read more…
