Re: [Yuricon] What's everybody watching? (Sorry, a bit long)
- Hi everybody! Sorry I haven't been checking in of late. I just started a new position at work and I've been crazy busy trying to get used to it all. Hopefully things will calm down soon.
Yurikon was a blast! I can't wait to see folks again. I'm really looking forward to it.
Now, I haven't really watched as much anime as Serge lately. That boy is hard-core. I did however see Voices of a Distant Star.
I tend to gravitate more towards light harded stuff. Serge thought very highly of this anime so I checked it out.
I thought it was very well done. The long distance space communication with her friend, and the concept of such a young child being recruited to combat aliens reminded me a little of a book I'm very fond of called Enders Game. I found the story engaging and short enough to keep someone with my limited attention span interested.
I've also caught some episodes of Comic Party. It found a special place in my heart right away. It's all about Otakus. I knew this was a show I could get behind when the one character stands in awe of a mangaka and thinks to himself with tearing glazed over eyes " I never knew a convention could be like this"
I finally saw a couple episodes of Devil Lady. Thumbs up. Women dealing out ass whuppings always makes Donna a happy girl! It's my kryptonite. You go my genetically evolved sister!
Last, but not least. I now own my own very special copy of Naked Killer! I saw the last half hour at Yuricon and knew I must have it. I went to the guy I normally buy my Kung Fu and Anime from. He tried to give me a remake of it. I went into a frenzy. "Does this version have a cop that pukes every time he holds a gun?", I demanded, " Does the villainess wear a pimp suit and strut with a cane? How much groin stabbing is in this movie?" I think I managed to scare him more than any greasy fan boy he had ever met.
I guess I can offer my input to this survey... ^-^
Voices of a Distant Star
At the very end, i felt as if my heart fell out of my chest. I felt as
if there wasn't anything left to live worth, I felt "alive" in a meaningless
sort of way. To grock the idea of never able to see your friends and
love ones again.
I couldn't stop thinking about that 25min video for the past three days
when I -should- be thinking about Pennsic and Otakon.
