I RULE

How to tell my mom that I have become socially awkward and terrified of people without sounding like a nutcase.

Or like an idiot. BUT THEN AGAIN. That's nothing new.

Mmmm, life. BUT GETTING A FOCUS ON THE SITUATION, meeting my counselor tomorrow I AM GETTING BACK ON TRACK.

In other news, to distract you from my soul-gorging emo (this is a lie. I'm fine guys), I did things! Things that make me happy! Things like watching Slayers Try and Gargoyles! Clearly I must subject you all to my thoughts on this.

Gargoyles
  • This show is beautifully EPIC. The music, the character designs, the characters themselves...just astound me. It also has some of the best written dialougue I have seen in a cartoon show yet.
  • SEXY VOICES ARE SEXY. God, Macbeth and Xanatos. Even Goliath's voice was mmmm gorgeous.
  • STUPID SEXY XANATOS (No, Booster, I'm not apping him okay)
  • "It's ALIVE! ALIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIVE! ...I've always wanted to say that" oh god Xanatos TAKE ME NOW.
  • god Demona. I know the circumstances (some of them) for her hate, BUT GOD WHAT A BITCH.
  • Matt the detective is adorable.
  • Elisa is HOT.
  • "I don't remember explosions in Bambi" o-oh Disney.
  • oh god, I cried for episode eight. I know WHY it was banned, but it seemed odd to ban it at all considering the continuity of the show.
Slayers TRY
  • uhhh
  • What did I just watch? Because that was not Slayers I know. The Slayers I know had EPIC BUILDUPS, well-planned tense battles, and beautiful pacing. WHAT I WATCHED WAS terrible filler episodes, overly dramatic monologues and somewhat CONFUSING PLOT (when a SLAYERS PLOT LOSES YOU you know there's something wrong). It just...didn't sit well with me.
  • I'm one of those weird ones who doesn't like Syphiel...and I didn't like Filia either. I LIKED HER IN THE BEGINNING but. Yeah.
  • Valgaav's existential emo annoyed me. LORD GAAV WOULD KICK YOU IN THE HEAD FOR THAT.
  • THAT BEING SAID, I did actually like Valgaav a bit. A teensy bit.
  • All in all, considering how much I LOVED NEXT BEYOND ANYTHING, Try really fell short of that. I...couldn't care much for it.
  • Xellos being evil again was amazing though.
Amatsuki
  • I FINALLY READ THIS MANGA
  • I...will never stop thinking of Bonten as Morpheus. "Choose your destiny, Toki. WILL IT BE ME OR GINSHU"
  • This is like Matrix in Edo.
  • I really, really like the art. I'm usually HORRIBLY picky about this stuff in manga (though not as much as miho is) but the art REALLY appealed to me.
  • my favourite character is Heihachi easily.
  • ...why are there only 22 chapters scanlated on onemanga.
Nabari no Ou
  • OKAY THE PREMISE OF THIS MANGA IS INCREDIBLY DUMB. Just. Really.
  • That being said, I still enjoyed it! (the premise is still incredibly dumb though)
  • This was one of the few times that I didn't get overly attached to the main character! I did like the girl though
  • ...man, I kept laughing. I LOVE THE FUNNY SCENES AND THE SERIOUS SCENES but. I. simply couldn't take it seriously.
Other stuff I explored, later. Plus, I need to write some fics for people.
  • Current Mood: cheerful cheerful
  • Current Music: Richard Marx and Donna Lewis - At the Beginning.
This reminds me of the fact that I've never actually watched Slayers TRY. Hmmm...
GARGOOOOOOOOOYLES soawesome. I don't remember what the eighth episode is about, though. It's been a few years.

psst, read Mirai Nikki
D: D: D: D: D: TRY.

Here's one of TRY's (many) problems:

"Defeating the Dark Lord" is a plot that took all of TEN EPISODES in the first season.

Also the fact that Lina is SO CASUALLY WILLING to cast Giga Slave in TRY sits with me as being completely and utterly OOC. And guess what? In the novels she seals it away so that no one can ever use it again.

AND OH GOD DID YOU NOTICE THAT THEY DIDN'T ACTUALLY SLAY A SINGLE THING IN THE WHOLE SEASON? Seriously.

But, uh...I liked the part where Zelgadis showed off his guitar skills?
Y-Yeah, considering that after NEXT she truly discovers the effects of the Giga Slave does strike me as odd.

...oh god they didn't. WHY IS THAT.

AHAHAAHAHAHA o Zel.
I liked Slayers TRY, but that's probably because I haven't seen the earlier ones. I wish I remembered enough of Gargoyles to fangirl with you. >:

WATCH THE TALES OF SYMPHONIA OVA IT'S PRETTY although the pacing's a bit fast
uhuhuhu. Best things I loved about Gargoyles was all the connections to Shakespeare and how I could recognize a lot of the voices thanks to Star Trek: The Next Generation.
AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO NEVER GOT TO WATCH THIS SHOW IN HER CHILDHOOD?

(Please don't answer)

...They were on Star Trek: Next Generation?
I WANT MY XANY, AERROW. I want him. So bad. Him and Owen. And Brooklyn and Elisa and Lex and....everyone. I want everyone. OOh, and Matt Bluestone, but we already have Fox Mulder.

The TNG thing: go look it up, it's nuts. Deana Troi is Demona, Riker is Xany, the....guy...Worf or whatever is Coldstone, Data is Puck...there are more but I can't think of any. <33333 I'M GLAD YOU LOVE IT. Oh, also, for ep. 8 they follow up with her being in the hospital a few episodes later, and being on crutches, so anyone who didn't catch the first run was probably like, "wait, whut?"
I WANT TO TOUCH HIM AND HUG HIM AND CALL HIM GEORGE BUT I CAN'T APP HIM. And yes, Owen too.

(and everytime you say Lex, I still think Luthor)

Yeah, they KEEP THE CONTINUITY which amuses me for people who missed that episode and probably going, "UH SHE GOT SHOT WHEN WHERE WHAT"
Re: voices. Not to mention we have Mary Tyler Moore's boss as Hudson, Professor Auturo from Sliders as Macbeth, TIM CURRY, super experienced voice actors just for filler like Jim Cummings (see, Razoul from Aladdin being Dingo? That's hilarious). Plus the six degree tie-ins to all the other superhero cartoons, like Goliath being Spawn's voice, means it's the best series ever for a geek to sit down and go "ooh I know this one!"
