People love to bitch about anime, as is made evident by the fact that blogs and /a/ exist. It’s understandable that people want to talk about anime that they don’t like, to possibly exercise the frustrations of having sat through a disappointing show. I know what it’s like when a show suddenly goes down hill or a character gets on your nerves in a show you like and you want to complain. However, it bothers me to see people complaining about things that they were never meant to like in the first place.
Oyakata-sama does not ‘ride’ a horse. He ‘rides’ a pair of horses that share a saddle. He ‘rides’ them standing up while holding a massive axe. He mounts his double-horse by slamming his axe into the ground, propelling him 50 feet in the air and he lands on the double-horse while it is moving. He then rides this horse straight up a several-hundred-foot vertical wall. At the top, he is attacked by a ninja who he guards against within a centimetar of being stabbed in the eye. The ninja proceeds to decapitate his horses and enter into mortal combat with him. After he’s punched the ninja through a building, he proceeds to kill the ninja’s master by vaporizing him with sheer manly energy. My friends. This is the greatest anime ever made. And what’s more, it appeals to everyone.
Baka-Raptor is extremely good at making short, concise points with both humor and intelligence. Even with the massive amount of sarcasm in the post, you can still get an idea of what he thinks of each show and have some laughs to boot. I love that the same format manages to work for every show, proving that Baka-Raptor is a genius and every other blogger is an idiot for straining themselves and wasting thousands of words to get across their thoughts. In the spirit of his post, I wanted to do a mid-terms review of my own. Unfortunately I’m not halfway through any fall shows so uh… here’s Soul Eater.
