How very odd

As part of the discussion on Artemis' excellent post I made:



Rumiko Takahashi is a difficult case to assess. She may be simultaneously the most successful female comic artist ever, AND one of the least feminist comic artists ever. The gender roles in Ranma 1/2 are horrifying.

Nara : Kofuku-ji & Nara Park

Continuation from ...



Heading back towards Kintetsu Nara station, I walked through the large park again.Saw this in the distance.

InuYasha the Movie: Affections Touching Across Time

Inuyasha: Affections Touching Across Time is a 2001 anime film directed by Toshiya Shinohara and is the first film in the Inuyasha series.The film follows the resurrection of a moth yokai named Menomaru who seeks revenge against Inuyasha for his father's defeat at the hand of Inuyasha's father.



Story comes at a slow pace but it does have some really cool action.It does pack a more emotional punch between Inuyasha and Kagome.The villain, Menomaru, was alright but hardly memorable.Liked the henchmen, Ruri and Hari, and enjoyed their fights with Miroku, Sango, and Kirara.

Kamisama Kiss (manga, vol. 1) by Julietta Suzuki

I'm pretty sure Kamisama Kiss counts as a SUPERNATURAL ROMANCE series, although, so far, it's heavier on the supernatural part than on the romance. This was one of my vacation reads.

Inuyasha

That time of year is here again! Our annual Japanese Festival is over and even though I'm partially glad it is, I have this bittersweet feeling about it since it was so much fun!

This year apart from organizing it along with three other friends, I decided to acts in our play...Inuyasha. For those of you who don't know it, its a famous anime series, you should check it out. I played Sango and did I mention how fun it was?


Animujaja

Because this wasn't supposed to be just a cosplay blog, I thought that I could write about animes/mangas I'm currently watching/reading. Now days I'm really lazy when watching anime. Not meaning I'm like "bleh, do I have to", or that I wouldn't like it anymore. I just might watch two or three episodes a week, plus the still airing ones that release one episode a week.

I can only watch, like, two completed series at the time. Because for some weird principle of mine, I have to watch them like one episode of this, and one episode of that right after. I can't do like, five episodes of Inuyasha, then one DBKai. I have no idea why l'D Lately I have improved a bit on this side, because I have not felt like watching DB.

I haven really liked watching animes while they are still airing before either. When Free! started, I made an exception. And there it started.... :'D

Anime

-Those ears! =QxQ= -

I am a fan of anime, I became a fan of anime after watching my very first anime on Adult Swim. I was in a good mood jumping on the bed (single digit age) and after 9 PM Cartoon Network turns into Adult Swim. Well this anime show came on with the very first episode. I watched it and fell in love with it. I loved everything about it! The half dog demon, the ending theme song, and the mix between love and gore that I liked. After I became handy with the computer, I finished the series and learned about "anime" overall. Then watched many other shows and soon fell in love with Asian culture.


A DELAY. Also, a post on the series Inuyasha

I do apologize but the NEXT post will be one on the Binding of Isaac. Also, I might start reviewing anime shows!

Now the series Inuyasha and Inuyasha: The Final Act. I loved it. Simply put, I loved it. It was a charming story that grew from an uneasy acquaintance/alliance due to some strange time traveling well. Into an unspoken love between 2 people and also a spoken love between another 2 people who the first 2 met along the way. My favorite character is not the main dude, or the main bad dude, or the heroine, or the fox, or most anyone. I personally liked Suikotsu with the split personality. Sesshomaru, the dude made out of diamond and the evil baby. yes in that order.

I liked Suikotsu because he is a person inhabited by 2 sentient people, one is a mass murderer, and the other is a kind physician. I like how he is so kind then he essentially becomes a feudal japan version of wolverine. Then when the 2 minds apparently merge into one and the body is of the physician as the mind is like a merged version of Suikotsu and Band of seven Suikotsu. He speaks so kindly, yet he beheads 3 people at once because they are suspicious of him. I also, as a side note, like how it looks like it was all painted. not drawn, painted. It is a nice look for it. Back to the main thing though, I liked Sesshomaru second most because he is epic, he fights things that are not of this world (later on in the season and during the final act), is immune to poison, can become a gigantic dog, is so cold to everyone and everything (but I'm guessing he was fond of Kagura though by how he acted when he could tell she was dying), has a sword that basically destroys EVERYTHING IT CUTS (imagine someone circumcising you with a weapon like that, LOL!) AND HE CAN CREATE A POISONOUS WHIP OF ENERGY FROM HIS FINGERNAIL. YOU CAN'T HATE SESSHOMARU. I like the diamond guy because, well, HE IS BASICALLY A WISE DIAMOND SKULL THAT CAN GROW AND REGROW A BODY. I liked the infant because is an evil baby .. IS SO DELICIOUSLY EVIL!!!!!! EVILE BABIES FOEVAH!!!!!!!! the character I didn't like. Hakudoshi. Yes, I know he is a good character and is pretty cool in his own right, BUT he is like a kid playing with mud (only instead of mud it is lives), he gets his hands dirty and only he and those like him like it. I found it weird that inuyasha announces all of his attacks and that line in one of the final act episodes where he is all, (insert retarded voice) "Are youu tthaying oi should yooz dis nuu tehtthoiguh!? (resentfully) Dith blayuck tetthoiguh????" It sounded weird and a little on the racist side. Sesshomaru's lines are all good. He has the consistently best lines. He even says tetsaiga's attacks better and more manly than Inuyasha does. The final act was the best. I didn't like moryomaru because he was just to asinine, pompous, and downright idiotically insulting with every word he said. It makes me want to jump into the episodes he is in and say, "YOU FUCKING IDIOTIC DIP-SHIT! GO FUCK YOURSELF INSTEAD OF SAYING ALL THESE SHITTY-ASS LINES!" and he'd stand there with his head down cowering and say, "Yes mother. :'(" (even though I am a dude) like a ever so infinitely slightly better little opposite of Sesshomaru.
