It’s been a short while since the last time I’ve posted anything related to current standings of the series I currently watch; and with good reason. I guess I can blame that on that overreacting post I made on Episodics vs Editorials. Sure, not having to write about every single happening from what I watch was fun, not to mention how I was able to think of things I otherwise couldn’t have done with episodics. But you know me, I easily get bored. In addition, the lack of episodic posting made me feel what a floppy disk would feel when exposed to a very strong magnetic field – that is, bits and pieces of my recollections on a previous episode just vanish out of thin air, making it difficult for me to get a good sense of the episode I’m currently watching. I guess it’s about time I make changes in blogging…only this time, I’ll be sticking one of my feet back to episodic. With this, I shall introduce a new section on ∑Xce7ion where all that really takes place is anything that are of interest from what I’m seeing, be it plot-related or not. So here goes…
On Eden of the East – Why on earth did they choose Johnny?
Seriously, it bothers me a bit as to why they chose Johnny out of all the penile euphemisms they could have used. Okay, maybe I overreacted when I said it bothers me, but still. Wouldn’t it make sense if they would have used ‘Richards?’ I think it would. Then again, I’m not really sure to what extent do people know about truncated names (e.g. Richard is to Dick as Robert is to Bobby). I guess using Johnny is not so bad, but we have the majority of the people’s dirty minds to thank for.
On a separate note, I stumbled upon a so-called list, appropriately named the ‘Dicktionary’, for all penile euphemisms, and I just can’t help but ROFLMAO. You can visit this list here .
Here’s some of the notable ones I find very funny.
- African black snake
- Beastus maximus
- Crimson Darth Vader (Oh gawd, I died laughing on this one)
On Hatsukoi Limited – Wisdom about girls…
…well according to HL anyway. I didn’t realize it at first but when Kei told Dobashi she leaves no openings, I experienced epiphany! Push comes to shove, I guess guys should constantly look for ‘openings’; and if it so happens that there isn’t any in sight, they have to go make one! It might be a little inaccurate to state this observation but Terai did keep on contemplating right? And guess what, he succeeded, of course, with a little aid..but still.
And the other wisdom? It applies to Koyoi’s kind and to her kind only. Apparently, even bro-cons are suceptible to big fragrant boobies.
(Brief unreasonable rants) on K-ON!
While it pleases me to know of the latest addition to the Light Music Club (Hooooray Azusa! Move aside Mio, jk…I still love all of you EQUALLY!!) it insults my sense of neutrality to such an extent where I can kiss this graphic piece goodbye. UGH….
On 07-Ghost – Blah Blah..so what if another Kor appeared?
Is it me or does anyone else find the last episode (referring to Episode 07) somewhat a repeat of Episode 06 (I think it was 06). I mean, there has been no major development aside from seeing that magical jewel from Teito’s hand in action. Other than that, there’s nothing much to get attentive to other than constant Kor attacks. I mean for Pete’s sake, I want to get past the point
where Mikage dies and gets reincarnated
already. Wait, wait!!!! No, I don’t hate Mikage (please forgive me!!!); it’s just that I want to series to gain a little pace…any slower and I could risk the possibility of dropping stuff out of boredom.
I guess that’s all for now. I’ll do this again whenever there’s something worth mentioning.
