End of Year Special: The Best pt3 (Anime Series of the Year)

January 27, 2011 3 comments

It’s getting well into January and I realized that I couldn’t drag things out bit by bit until February roared around and decided to streamline my end of year awards.  Let me just say that if your show didn’t make it more than likely I just didn’t get around to seeing it… or I hated it.  And that being said, this can’t be called definitive in any way.  Like all my blog entries I’m really just archiving my thoughts and experiences to look back on at a later time.  Regardless, here’s what I most enjoyed about 2010 in delicious All-American list form.

End of Year Special: Favorite Characters of 2010

I thought about making this a “best of” post on characters of 2010, but then I thought it wouldn’t have the personal touch that I desired.  This is just a list of the characters I enjoyed the most from anime series in 2010.  If you feel I missed someone or you want to put in your own two cents, then feel free to leave something in the comments.

Anime Episodes of the Year: Highschool of the Dead ep8 (Super Sonic Boobs)

December 22, 2010 Leave a comment

Well this episode started out epically enough.  Air Force One being zombified and all.  How the f*ck did that happen?  The preemptive nuclear strike?  How is that in anyone’s best interest.  I guess that should’ve been a hint at how explosive this episode would be.  Other than that it starts out normally enough.

Check-out Station: Highschool of the Dead (don’t look away, it’s gloriously tragic)

November 19, 2010 Leave a comment

Wow!  That’s finally over.  A popular opinion I’ve been hearing on the interwebs is that the Summer season was one of the most horrible ones that they can remember.  That however does not mean that there was nothing to watch.  Sometimes it’s fun to watch a trainwreck or disaster as well.  There are actually movies out there that are legendary and popular because they are so bad.  There’s a reason Court TV turned into Tru TV and started showing all those horrible “Worst”, “Dumbest” and “Most Dangerous” tv shows where they show real life footage of  people in dangerous, or ridiculous situations.  There’s a reason Youtube videos of people getting hurt or hurting others or just making fools of themselves get so many views and make people so much money (just look up the Bed Intruder phenomenon).  And there’s a reason people slow down to stare at carwrecks as they pass by.  People are just naturally compelled to look at the outrageous and unbelievable.  I saw a video the other day of a motorcycle getting hit by a truck.  The guy (formerly) on the motorcycle was flipped in and through the air when he was hit.  HE LANDED ON HIS FEET!  The guy walked back to the site of the accident and exchanged insurance information with the truck driver.  I’m showing that video to any and everyone who will let me.  You can bet on that.  And that’s what Highschool of the Dead capitalized on, our natural inclination to observe a disaster and tell everyone about it.  Like it or not, this show was a terrible success.

DonKangolJones’ Images of the Week: It’s so much easier for girls (Sept 12th)

September 12, 2010 Leave a comment

A pattern has been revealed to me.  Lately two shows have been fighting for my attention.  One is obviously K-ON!!, which consistently is pulling my heartstrings, getting cuter and more emotional by the week.  I didn’t think that could even be possible.  The other is the dubious, infamous, ludicrous Highschool of the Dead.  Which is making a habit of starting a new meme and sending anime fans into a murderous, rabid frenzy with each episode.  Thank you God, that K-ON!! won out this week.  Even a declaration of wetness couldn’t stop the juggernaut that is HTT.

DonKangolJones’ Images of the Week: Matrix Boobs (September 5th)

September 5, 2010 2 comments

Hello world.  I didn’t want to acknowledge this episode of Highschool of the Dead, but I couldn’t help myself.  This show is legendarily outrageous.  But fear not, other stuff happened this week that did not involve insulting women or the ability of their breasts to be used for good wholesome entertainment.  Time for another week of happy, sad, pervy and the just plain best images of the week in the world of anime and manga.

DonKangolJones’ Images of the Week (August 15th)

My second week in a row of Images of the Week, I think I’m doing quite well.  The event of the week and probably the event of the next few months is One Piece.  The Marineford arc is starting and maybe besides the ending of K-ON!! will probably be the biggest event of the anime year.  Now then, let’s get to it.

Check-in Station: Highschool of the Dead eps 1-5 (a gang of teenagers and a pornstar run around beating blind invalids)

August 10, 2010 3 comments

Okay maybe saying they’re a gang is not quite accurate, nor is the blind invalid part, but it’s close enough.  This show has the set up of an awesome video game, coupled with the action of an awesome Jerry Bruckheimer production.  Too bad the plot, nor execution is awesome as well.   After five episodes of blood and boobies, and death and panties, I have to ask myself if Highschool of the Dead is a great zombie show or a terrible after school special.  Be sure to eat all your brains before you finish this post.
