This is actually a series of mini-posts that I decided to just group together. With 100% more link-love.
Kara no Kyoukai 6
Watched it. It looked beautiful (as expected of ufotable), but I had problems with the plot. Ray calls attention to stuff the movie edited or left out entirely, and it’s quite a lot–I’d have to read the novels some time.
The real star of the film, however, was Azaka. The Kasshu family might want to consider adopting a new member. She’s made of 100% BURNING PASSION, and loves her big brother. The original King of Hearts is no different.
Dr. lolikit’s creation is more fun than I’d thought it’d be–one of the good ends is achieved by murdering a certain someone. I really dig the art, character and background-wise. However, Baka-Raptor’s music gets old pretty fast, and needs some turning down on the volume.
Oh, and damn you Owen for not letting me have my way with Omo. 😦
I hope I appear in future versions of the game (if only as a lackey of better /m/en out there)–another good incentive to improve my blogging chops, that is.
The Debate On Fanart Usage In Blogs Hurr Durr
wah makes some valid points, but delivers it in typical wah fashion, which polarizes most bloggers to lash out instead of actually listening. I like omo’s take on it, since it’s a moderate view and I agree about link-love (which is something I should be doing more in this blog).
Some more posts on the topic at hand:
- Hinano rages
- RP strikes back at fanartists themselves
- Omo’s thoughts
- Digitalboy’s reaction
- A Day Without Me proposes a solution to the problem, and implements it immediately
Nevertheless, I’ll be more careful with posting fanart in my blog, and would take my time to look the artist up using whatever tools I have available. Might be a good way to increase my exposure to Pixiv.
Update: wah vs “Human Trash” part 2. IMO, it’s as necessary as Ghost in the Shell: Innocence. Except that Innocence was actually pretty.
SEED vs Astrays
Goddammit, Bandai. As if Destiny Astray wasn’t retarded enough, which featured a war journalist in a cutting-edge mobile suit THAT TAKES PICTURES WITH ITS CAMERA GUN. The Providence variant is seriously ugly and the colors on all of the new suits don’t help either. Just let Astray rest for good, please.
So it begins. I’m actually doing it just to ogle at the funny Shift-JIS art, if anything.
