It’s Monday, which means it is once again time for this! Welcome back to Don’t @ Me! The place where, like Fry on a saturday night. I have my two liter bottle of Shasta and my thoughts, opinions and views on the anime and manga world. This week I’m ready to rock, also the new WoW expansion hits today. Let’s do this after the cut.
- That last Chainsaw Man episode made me fucking gag. Like I get shivers just thinking about it. So yeah…well done to the animators I guess?
2. The recent clip from an interview regarding the live-action One Piece reminds me of how little good-will, if any, these shows have. I can see why they are making that change, it doesn’t translate well into live action. But the thing is, anime hasn’t earned that level of good faith in trusting the show runners, especially western showrunners. It just feeds the outrage cycle.
3. Been watching Super Crooks and like, holy fuck. You can’t just do that shit in your opening episode and never address it again. I mean Jesus Christ.
4. You know ‘having god and anime on your side’ is true when Japan won that World Cup game. Especially since their uniform was designed by Manga artist.
5. There is nothing wrong with a ‘mid’ show. Those anime are actually really good and give the art form the needed breathing room between the big hits and the trash. I am honestly starting to hate that term and how it is just thrown around like some insult. Some of my favorite shows in the last two years are ‘mid’.
6. Happy Expansion day World of Warcraft players! Let’s enjoy the gear treadmill once again!
