It’s Monday, which means it is time for this! Welcome back to Don’t @ Me! The place where, like a cart full of cabbages. I yell in absolute despair as I give you my thoughts, views and opinions on everything in the anime and manga world. This week we are entering those final beautiful days of summer which means it will hopefully cool the fuck down. Let’s get into it after the cut.
- I’ll talk about this later in the week, but upon reflection I probably should have picked something else for The Summer of Love IV. There really just wasn’t enough for me to chew on with Cardcaptor Sakura. Some great moments but there were just times I was straining to get words on paper. Oh well, you can’t win em all.
2. I think this year’s best anime (in terms of the community) is really coming down to whether nostalgia for Bleach versus the ‘ohh shiny’ newness of Chainsaw Man. I wonder which one will be stronger, though I have a feeling Chainsaw is going to get the nod. There is just something about the new thing that causes people to go gaga for it.
3. Which is a shame because the honors should go to SpyxFamily, but I think that is going to be cast aside because of the ‘shonen bias’ that the anime community always seems to have. What can I say? When a shonen show with good animation and balls to the wall action shows up, it sucks up all the oxygen.
4. Can’t believe it has been almost 4 years since I started this blog. It’s been a long time and I’m still going strong. Looking forward to the anniversary post and all that comes next. Hope you take a look!
5. As I get older I find myself really unwilling and uninterested to criticize older shows for shitty animation. Part of that is knowing a bit of how anime is made (and the crappy conditions in which some are made) and frankly just not caring anymore. I’ve seen what loving products does to people, especially in this age of the internet. I won’t take any part in that.
6. Which is really a long way for me to end up saying is that I saw clips of that old Tsukihime anime and yeah, doesn’t look good. Not going to crucify the series for it though.
