I should add a tag for ‘holy shit this post was supposed to be fucking published three months ago’, but it’ll take too long to type out so I’ll stick with my good ol’ Rewrite History.
Maybe waterpistols weren’t such a good idea»
Oh gosh, this HSR is from the times when I didn’t screencap while watching, so arghblargh I have to go through all those episodes again…
ACTUALLY, NO I DON’T, BECAUSE THERE’S NOTHING REMOTELY INTERESTING ABOUT THIS AT ALL :|
(Also, will be updating some HSR here, so wait for my link!)
Here: Shiki HSR 3. Read it~!
Read and/or Walk On»
[Announcement: On the note of dead people…]
“Scientists tentatively call this green virus ‘grass’.”
HotD: Boobs, zombies, and grass infections»
“I don’t want to be in a poorly written post about a series that aired months ago!!”
Well, too bad.
I’m sure he doesn’t enjoy being dead either»
It’s not Nine One 1.
Posting this cause originally Choy was gonna post it; then he, y’know, died, and (in need of a quick post) looking through my post backlog (which is enormous), everything was half-season reviews, with my computer dying and all; besides this. Also, I need to clear some hard drive space.
Anyways, cause it’s so awesome, why don’t I post using pictures instead?
Our story starts here. The 42nd Advanced Dromedary Division was assigned to escort the two bunnies to this town, where we would wait for helicopter support.
Hopefully, there won’t be any enemies in such a tiny town. We only have three truckloads of camels with us today.
Hey, some bunnies. Don’t know if they’re hostile or not. Maybe they’re why we needed to escort our bunnies here. I’d say they’re safe.
We get off the trucks. This is me. I’m Mohammed. Why did they send three truckloads of people when there’s nobody he-
What? WHO DID THIS?!
Behind you! THE BUNNIES ARE SHOOTING AT US! I quickly run to cover; I can’t fight very well if I’m dead.
Dammit! He ran away. Wait, what’s that green thing? Maybe he’s signalling for reinforcements!
Fuck. The reinforcements are here.
I ready my RPG. Hopefully it’ll hit.
YEAH! Take that, bunnies!
Some of them came out alive. Oh well, we’ll deal with them later.
Wait! We forgot about our bunnies! If they die, then this whole mission would fail!
They’re torturing them! Damn it, there’s just too many rabbits for us to kill!
I run outside and blindly flail my blade at a nearby bunny. It didn’t kill, but at least he’s wounded.
But still they come. I retreat.
…Wait, is that…
THE CHOPPER’S HERE!
That should deal with them.
A field of destruction surrounds the area. Yet, we still escorted our objective safely to the chopper.
I’d say it went…
…just as planned.
Alright, here it is: the Finalized Summer Anime Season 2010 Blogging stuff (not previous season even though I’ll probably finish watching Working!! and posting on that) I-don’t-know-what-to-write-here-anymore-this-is-actually-a-filler-post thing. Well, it’s not really finalized cause you can’t finalize whether or not you’ll drop one of these, but…
Mushy’s Animovie Posts
Black Rock Shooter. Why? CAUSE IT’S AWESOME.
YuChoy’s Anime Posts
HotD. Why? Iunno, I’m making this post and I have no idea what YuChoy thinks of it. :P
Nurarirarirarirarirarirarirarisomething. Why? Read the above.
Mushy’s Anime Posts
Black Lagoon 3. Why? CAUSE IT’S AWESOME.
tl;dw. Why? I’m not really sure. But c’mon they have dango!
Ookami-san. Why? Cause it was the first one out and I didn’t know what to expect from it, so… I’m posting it.
Occult Academy. Why? CAUSE THEY HAVE TIME TRAVELERS AND OCCULT STUFF.
Mushy’s Half Season Reviews
Amagami. Why? For once, I have no idea. At all.
Digimon. Why? CAUSE IT’S THAT AWESOME. Not really. It’s just funny as hell how… badly they made it (I mean, episode 1, some Digimon kills an ENTIRE ARMY with a Final Spark 100 times the size it should be. IN EPISODE ONE. AND THERE’S SOMEONE CALLED “MADLEMON”. That radiates all kinds of… something)
Mitsudomoe. Why? I expect it to be somewhat funny even if several others have already dropped it at episode 2. But I’m only at episode 1! :P
Shiki. Why? Cause it’s supposed to become “psychological horror mindfuck”. And I haven’t seen enough of those yet.
Mushy’s Not Watching Because I Didn’t See Season 1
Black Butler 2. I am so watching this. Soon.
Sekirei. No. Not watching. EVER.
Sengoku. Maybe. They have swords.
Strike Witches. YES.
Mushy’s Not Watching
Asobe ni Ikuyo. Stupid premise. Stupid show.
Hamlet or whatever. Art style looks stupid, but I’ll judge after watching Episode 1.
Seitokai. Eh, 4koma thingy. Might watch, might not. Erring on the not side though.
Tono to Issho. Eh. Historical.
And that pretty much wraps up what’s going to happen from now until… the end of summer! Yay! Also video:
[EDIT: Well, whaddya know? Parental controls backfired, meaning that not even my parents can access the computer (where I store my music) anymore, until 4:00. Naturally, you can bypass the time restrictions by modifying the system time in BIOS startup settings, but I can’t tell them that :P So yeah. No composition. Canada Day tomorrow so I’m going to be celebrating, and I’ll update this with the final composition when I get it done. This also means I didn’t meet the deadline, but… well, that’s life.]
Thanks for all your help; this is the final copy (including the .mus! If you wish to use this for any purpose other than listening (e.g. showing other people, attempting to play it which is basically impossible as noone will want to), email me at firstname.lastname@example.org just cause I want to know).
As for composing, I’ve definitely learned some very important things.
One – NEVER, EVER USE SUCH A HUGE ORCHESTRA EVER AGAIN. The torture of it was too much for me to bear, modifying each instrument against each other. And the font is impeccably tiny.
Two – I don’t know counterpoint. So, I shall learn counterpoint. Königliche März was based not on the individual melodies of each instrument, but on a basic chord structure and additions to it. Because of that, it sounded quite hollow.
Three – I have infinite time. Not infinite time, but I take on so many useless items that if I needed to do something, I will finish it. I could probably finish a month-long project in two days (which I have done before) if I don’t do anything stupid, because I waste /that much/ time.
Finally – COMPETITIONS ARE FREAKING ANNOYING AND SO IS FREAKING PERCUSSION (research things before doing stuff!)
But wait, mushy, why are there two posts today?
Well, today (GMT-wise) is July the First. What does that mean?
It means that Summer has officially started.
Not only does this bring good news for anime fans, but it also means we have time to blog, twice a day (we have four bloggers now).
On a related note, thanks to my obsessive following of comment feeds, I have found an interesting plugin that may or may not work. This allows us to see who’s actually writing my post and thus kill the “MUSHYHIJACK” tag, even though that was pretty fun >_>
Second announcement: Maplestory has an event. Though I knew about it a long time ago, I was busy composing worthless crap so I couldn’t participate. Anyways, it ends on the 13th, and that means that I should try to get to level 40 from level 0 to get some awesome limited-edition item. I can maple 7 hours a day, so it should go smoothly enough (for those who remember my Evan excursion).
And, yeah. Enjoy your Summers everyone; I’ll update (cause I still haven’t watched them!) DRRR and AB with their final posts soon, but probably not tomorrow as I’ve got forums to catch up to~ (Oh, and buying items because of HST starting tomorrow >_>)
2010 Summer Anime Preview and stuff, after these videos/notes:
…It seems that FMA (both the manga and Brotherhood anime adaption) has finally ended… so I’ll probably rewatch that (I only watched the first anime) this summer.
Hayabusa‘s also back from wherever it went…
On an entirely unrelated note;
^ WordPress 3.0 is out…! (And it still screws with my font size and spacing)
^ …THEY HANG PIANOS ON WALLLLLLLSSSSSS
^ What they used to make Bad Apple!!…
^ Supposedly the “last” combo movie; one that you can actually watch without getting bored…!
So, I’mma just start this first; these are purely my opinions (don’t get offended), YuChoy’s gonna (hopefully) be blogging Summer too, but it’s hard to coordinate posts and such.
(read that while reading this post or else stuff won’t make sense)
…Eh. Slice of life, I’m pretty biased towards those. Not gonna watch at all, I mean for god’s sakes, it’s based on a dating sim >_>
Asobe ni Ikuyo!
…Alright, the premise is that some guy meets an nekoalien. :/ Sounds like another To-Love-Ru, not gonna watch either. Might turn awesome, though I highly doubt it.
Black Lagoon OVA
HOLY FUCKING CRAP THEY HAVE MACHINEGUNS AND BLOOD AND FLYING BOATS AND EXPLOSIONS AND SHIT.
Not only am I going to watch this, I’m going to blog this as well. Unfortunately, it’s Season 3, and I didn’t watch any of the previous seasons; I think it’s time for some catch-up >:D
IMO this seems like definitely one of the best anime of this season, at least in the top 3 if not the best. JUST FREAKING LOOK AT THE TRAILER GOD THAT IS JUST AWESOME
According to the Wikipedia article it’s about A BAND OF MODERN PIRATES
THIS IS TOO EPIC NOT TO USE CAPS IN
Black Rock Shooter
…It seems like basically EVERYONE on the niconets is waiting for this. Apparently it’s based on a Vocaloid (Miku) song/PV…
..For the Preview vieo, they even used the original song..!
I MEAN GOD THEY HAVE GIANT OKUU CANNONS AND GUNS AND ZANPAKUTOU AND HOLY CRAP TIHS IS JUST EPIC
Goes right up there with Black Lagoon :# :#
Now if they made an anime for this one PV, they should really get to work on getting a Touhou one :P
I am DEFINITELY going to blog this. Like, 100%.
Burakku rokku shuutaa~
Digimon Xros Wars
…It’s Digimon. Need I say more? >_>
Highschool of the Dead
It seems just as good as Black Rock Shooter and Black Lagoon; since when have zombie animes failed us?
THE EPICNESS IT BLINDS MY EYES
I’m certain this will be AWESOME, just because IT IS AWESOME
Anyways, Choy’s prolly gonna blog this but I will definitely watch this as well. Just hope it isn’t too scary… >_>
…Perfect and Elegant butler..?
Seems interesting, not as good as HSotD but maybe worth a watch. Unfortunately it’s also the second series, and so I may need to watch the first as well.
…But judging solely from the preview, it seems that there is way too much talking in the anime, and not enough action. Nevertheless, could be interesting, I just probably won’t blog it.
The Legend of the Legendary Heroes
Redundancy is redundant… Maybe the Legend of the Legendary Legends would seem more Legendary >_>
..Some fantasy anime. Eh, not brilliant but probably not that bad either.
OOOH AND IT HAS MAGICK AND LIEK SOME SORTA MACHINEGUNMAGICKWAR
ALSO SOMEGUY HAS EIRINHAIR
Rating just went up to “worth a glance”.
…Eh. Moe really isn’t my style, so I’ll drop this. Sounds /really/ Kokonoesque, which is a somewhat bad thing. Points down for repetitive music, so all in all, I’m prolly not going to even bother looking at this.
Nanarihyon no Mago
…Admit it, when you first looked at the poster and realized that he was half-demon/youkai you thought “Inuyasha”.
..It really does sound like it; so it might be worth a watch. It’s ported straight from Shonen Jump as well, which means it has to be at least somewhat decent.
‘Choy’s going to be blogging this.
Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakamatachi
..THE VOICE IT BURNS INTO MY SOUL
That just killed like half of the points. Seems interesting but not very blog-worthy, probably just another haremina (anime backwards is emina teehee), and those get boring pretty fast.
I might look at it, but most likely won’t follow it very far…
The picture looks weird, and that’s enough for me to disregard it. I’ll see the first episode and then make a judgement, I guess….
Seikimatsu Occult Gakuin
So there’s an entire city within a building.
This is obvious horror setting, so I’ll probably watch it just because horror shows are generally more interesting.
Attempt to add mythology into it is… interesting. It might bomb, it might work; I’ll see what happens with this one.
…Another 4koma adapted anime, à la K-On and Hidamari Sketch.
…4koma = moeblob
…moeblob = no content
…no content = …
J00 HAVE FAILED
Sekirei: Pure Engagement
…First thought = EPIC SWORDSLASH WIN
…Second thought = Sekirei: Pure Fanservice
I didn’t even finish watching the trailer.
Sengoku Basara 2
Epic swordslashing again. And furries. :/
Iunno, the preview was too short for me to judge anything, so I’ll see the first episode. Seems to me like a lot of fighting though, and I didn’t watch the first season, so.. :/
Well, this seems… like a masterpiece. A horrible, horrible (in a semi-good way) masterpiece.
:S I’m not sure if I have the stomach to watch it.
I’m not going to blog it cause more than 2 series may be a bit too much, but I’ll watch it for sure.
The silent preview also gave the feel of something really, really, good. But god the corpses they’ll haunt my dreams forever
Shukufuku no Campanella
…Well, let’s just read the summary; “series based upon an adult visual nov-
Strike Witches 2
…Iunno about this. There’s usually a very, very, thick line between plot and moe/fanservice animes, but this sorta blurs it. I haven’t watched the first season though, so… eh.
Shou lazors though. Might watch a few episodes of this, but probably won’t watch the entire thing. Also, what’s with that purple Kenpachi-esquie eyepatch that person has…?
Tono to Issho
..Some Historical anime. Eh, Hetalia was a “Historical” anime, this one may be worth a try…
…Which means, for the final list choices, we have this:
Black Lagoon/Black Rock Shooter/Highschool of the Dead are obvious wins.
After that, Kuroshitsuji 2/Nanarihyon no Mago/Seikimatsu Occult Gakuin/Shiki should be rather good ones.
I’ll also check out The Legend of the Legendary Heroes/Osaka Hamlet/Sengoku Basara 2/Strike Witches 2/Tono to Issho to see how they’re like.
…The rest is just :/
And that’s the end of Mushy’s 2010 Summer Anime Preview Review! :D
