No, I don’t actually believe that. I’d really be in trouble or have some terrible taste if I did believe it.
Honestly, it’s one part sarcasm, and one part stubbornness. The stubbornness springs from the fact that I regularly converse with a person who’s only seen approximately 20 minutes of Dragonball Evolution, but swears that it’s the worst movie ever made. Which is in fact, untrue. Don’t get me wrong, Dragonball Evolution is a BAD movie, but I’ve seen worse. This attitude is just annoying me enough that I will now attempt to annoy that person by defending the movie every time he badmouths it.
It’s weird, but that’s the way I am. It really annoys me to read/hear people’s opinions when they don’t even bother to watch/listen/read whatever they have the opinion about. What’s worse is when a person accepts another person’s opinion as their own. That’s just lazy. Why bother having an opinion about something you never plan to watch then? I really don’t get it.
In non-ranting updates, I’ve finally finished watching Gurren Lagann, and I have to admit that the ending had some tears coming to my eyes. It’s been a little while since I really enjoyed what I was watching as much as Gurren Lagann, and I’m glad that the ending was…..an ending. Honestly, I really liked the ending.
Since I finished Gurren Lagann out of my personal collection, I’ve moved on to Vandread which is not as good as I remembered it being. I have the sinking feeling that this is going to be the trend for a lot of the anime I watched when I first became a fan, unfortunately. It has a great premise: battle of the sexes in space. Unfortunately, it really just turns into space harem with combining robots and one hell of a bitchy lead. He is completely unlikable, but I still like a few of the side characters, such as the elderly captain of the female pilots, and the merchant guy who operates their ship naked. Poor guy. I’m just going to try and get through both seasons as quick as I can and move on to the next title in my collection. If I ever finish, I will definitely be thinning it out. I own some terrible anime.
I caught up with Fullmetal Alchemist:Brotherhood on hulu, so I started watching Spice and Wolf since it expires the soonest (May 14). I’ll admit that a lot of the subject matter is pretty dry, and it’s definitely not for the average viewer, but I’ve been surprised by how much I’ve been enjoying watching it. There’s an excellent chance I’ll end up buying it. It’s a nice contrast to a lot of the other anime I watch, with it’s calmer pacing and excellent music. I think that the music helps to draw me in even when my attention starts to wander away from the screen.
It’s shocking that I’ve posted twice in the same week now. If you know Missouri weather, it’s been back and forth between summery warm and wintery chilly for the past month, and it really messes with me. I spent most of last week simply working and sleeping, since I was pretty run down. I’m feeling better so far this week though, so hopefully that stays true. I hope all you guys are doing well too.
