Mouretsu Pirates 6

This was going to be my 666th post and then I reconsidered. Sure is beets, potatoes around here! So, instead, all you’ll get is a screencap collection of scenery and people’s FACES. No captions, no text – just pictures. See, I can even spin a post that was posted half a month behind schedule without content due to laziness into a post into an artistic form of posting without words. tl;dr: god, I’m lazy

P.S. Don’t worry, I’ve got two SCHEDULED filler posts coming up! It’s that ‘no-actual-post-for-half-a-week’ time of the year again, eh…

Just pictures after this»

Angel Beats!: Stairway to Heaven [Completed]

It’s Winter! Two more Fall posts and then Fall’ll be over!

…tl;dw t-t

It’s all about youth, da ze.

If that doesn’t give you a brief example of what the hell this episode is about, I hope the following pictures will enlighten you. A picture’s worth a thousand captions, after all. Make your own in your minds :V

Funny how anime’s all about multiple endings now. Oh, and FYI this took place between fourth and fifth episodes – that is, after they found out you’d disappear after fulfilling what you wanted, and before they found out Tenshi’s name is Kanade, got her kicked out of Student Council (she’s still the president in this), and Yui’s still here (so it couldn’t have been after Naoi joined the SSS, cause, well, he hasn’t joined the SSS). Not much of an end there, is it? :P

Overall Rating: 6/10 (Amazing)

Shinryaku! Ika Musume Half Season Review [Completed]

I just put that picture first because it’d be sorta paedophillic to show the first frame of the image below first…

Shinryaku! Ika Musume explained in one SIDNET’d episode.

Or, if you want it to be more concise [NICO NICO WARNING INADVISABLE TO WATCH WITH PARENTS]:

Shinryaku! Ika Musume explained in one minute and forty-seven seconds.

Even more concise?

Shinryaku! Ika Musume explained in one picture.

Cause there’s no point explaining plot, and because I don’t do my HSRs at the end of all the episodes (rather preferring to screencap after every episode, and then somehow joining them together at the end), Screencap Collection time~

So that’s why she tries so hard to scare people


Why don’t we take a look at Hourai’s true colours?

Ya think that was scary? Well…

And our casts’s reactions?


Well, she turned into a zombie so I guess that’s not very good

Wait, didn’t you want shaved squid tentacles?

It’s really an invasion now!

Mitsudomoe 2 – now starring Eiko!

Awww, too bad they didn’t do anything important…


Here’s an example when not having plot can be a very, very good thing. Indeed, there are many examples of the type, seeing as most failed plot-anime were anime that failed because they tried to add plot. But failed. As always, I stick to my conception that trying to multi-anything is always bad. Except when you’re cross-training in DF. That’s rather good.

Focusing instead on character relationships, Ika Musume reminds me a lot of Oreimo – a bunch of random characters nobody cares about centred around one girl with an ill-defined trajectory for future plans, finally summarized up solely on the final episode with a ‘to be continued…’ tag slapped on top.


Ah. Ha. Ha. Ha.

The individual stories touched me the most. That one in episode five, I think, when Ika-chan outlived Eiko by like 10,000 years, was an excellent example of what no-plot anime can do. They have no big plot, but little, individual plots range far and wide.

Indeed, such a story requires far more in intellectual creativity – coming up with 36 individual, yet compelling and completely self-absorbed stories is no easy job. I suppose it has been lightened by the predecessors of such form, in particular, Yotsuba&! – the same story of a little girl with no idea that umbrellas are scary things.

I knew it! They do change who’s fat and who’s skinny every year

Yet, such a story could have a very good plotline – if only a few antagonists were added. The border between anta- and porta- was bridged here; though really, seeing as this is 36 different stories, the protagonist of each story would undoubtedly change.

The appearance of the final, mystery, unnamed, and Wikipedia-listed character does bring some hopes to a sequel, for the manga is still running strong. Nevertheless, I, for one, have had quite enough of Squid Girl.


5/10 (Great)

Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai Half Season Review

Nerdy guy decides to date everyone in za warudo, or else he’ll die.

Let’s go through a day in the life of Katsuragi Keima…


Should I make a tag for alternate stories? But I need a witty(er) name…

I also realized I didn’t watch episode four yet, or at least I don’t remember it. Oh well, all the more reason for an alternate story.

All the above are SIDNET for laziness.

Sorry, life’s been horrible, so posts reflect the state of my current spiritual health.



Shinryaku! Ika Musume Half Season Review

Note to self – don’t empty your recycle bin. Ever. Especially if it’s from a USB stick. And the file is two gigabytes in size.

…Or rather, the file itself is quite small, but if you can only get it from a linked archive that’s two gigabytes in size…

The squid ink accurately portrays my current emotional state. Look closer.

Anyways, one day a squid girl comes from the sea and decides to conquer humanity. Too tired to make some sort of meaningful side-story, so here’s a collection of pictures. Don’t try to make sense out of them, even though they’re in some sort of order. Just watch the anime.

…So… Cirno?

Had a change of heart?

She’s not angry, just very tired. Midterms, y’know.


She’s riding a banana? Really now?

Lemme get it straight here, you want to be a giant with explosive footsteps that turn humans into shrimp? That’s some jumbo shrimp.

“Your little brother…”

Seems like Ika’s not very good at using mspaint… (Seriously I didn’t edit this)

This is seriously creeping me out now, but at least we have a hope in case of a zombie apocalypse…

“Hmm, this works too.”

“I have tentacles in my hair!”

“Stop trying to drop me in a well off the coast of Finland!”


I’m pretty sure the Boltzmann constant isn’t part of math, but oh well…

“What? That was a post?”

Why, yes it was.
