Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past.

Pretty soon this show will be nothing but shocked faces. But for now I find myself enjoying it.

Watched Elfen Lied. First things first, it can't be that bad, since I watched all 13 episodes. But ... man... wtf is it with anime and young children adopting younger children so they can play parents? Is this some sort of grooming? Weird as hell to have those constant excuses for nekkid bewbs and bewb-touching as well.

The last one I remember was Sword Art Online. It had the same "children becoming parents"-thing and it was super cringe there as well.

  • Gorth changed the title to Anime and Manga - fanservice, fanservice everywhere and not a character dramatization in sight!

I remembered something I read before I watched the first episode of Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon a while back. Motoki is eventually going to propose to Makoto. Which I thought was a nice gesture by the writers (considering Makoto is the butt-monkey of the team way too often), but this Motoki is a total moron who is constantly duped into accepting the silly home made arcade passes by the girls, so I'm no longer sure it was that nice a gesture.

Man. I hope he gets something useful to do, or at least something to say that's not dumb. Sheesh, he just asked a turtle to go on a walk. :no:

Edit: Usagi has a pyjama party with Ami and Naru. Rei didn't want to come because she's Rei. Rei also had the good sense to tell Usagi that she should not force Ami to do things she does not want to do. In theory, this is a decent episode, but it's a bit too early. Ami being intentionally bad at school because she thinks that will make her more relatable to Usagi is pretty painful to see. It also shows the biggest downside of the series. It's live action, and no matter what you do, some things just do not work with actors, and Usagi's exaggerated mannerisms when talking to Naru are amongst them.

The girls do their best, but that is also somewhat limited. Well, so far the series was rather entertaining, but I hope the next character focus episode will be better. Also, just when I thought the episode is not going to follow THE Sailor Moon formula, Nephrite and Beryl show up.

Edit 2:

Here is an image of Rei making her psychotic killer face looking supportive at Ami:

In case you don't recognize them (and I am not going to blame you), these three are the guys that bully Usagi before Makoto shows up and gives them a well deserved smack down. The show accomplishes that by making her throw the basketball back at them so hard it turns into a CGI ball and the guy with the orange hat just keels over from the force of the impact. The others get an off-screen smackdown because, uh, the stuntwomen had a day off or there wasn't any budget left for them doing another scene where Makoto fights.

I get that you probably can't find a trio of super buff dudes in 2003's Japan for your shoe string budget show that will let themselves get beaten down by a girl on screen, but seriously, those three twits up there, that was the best you could do? :banana:

Edit: also probably unfair to complain about, but Makoto's actress isn't tall enough, but she looks the part better than I previously thought going simply from her in costume in the opening sequence. :yes:

Did it reset your progress so you can pretend you never watched it at least?

Bleach anime has started up again. I want to watch that train wreck of a last arc again. The sad thing is that once Kubo got a break and rested from that serialization, he came back with some excellent stories. Do wonder when he is going to start up serialization again.

What? I feel like people wanted me to watch Bleach two decades ago and I said that they should keep their filler-ridden shounen stuff until it is done and I can figure out if I really want to go anywhere near it, and it's still going? Or... getting new episodes?

Oh boy, that is one minefield I avoided. Phew!

Chainsaw Man 8

We find out what happened at the end of the previous episode.

Spoiler

Spoilers!

Spoiler

Well, nothing happens. Denji wants his first time to be with Makima. That means Himeno won’t go to jail for doing it with a minor. However, considering what happens later, she might have been better off in jail.

Edit: btw, this was another hell of an episode!
