LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 2/18/18 & 2/19/18 + Why DeadMoon loves Shimoneta

   0

 

It’s been a goddamn minute since I’ve written a Cblog Recap, but I’m here pumping out some words about stuff and things.

Up on today’s docket is, the anime, Shimoneta. Assuming you aren’t a total prude who is averse to anything regarding fan service, this show is essential fucking viewing. Seriously, I have not been this enamored with a series since One Punch Man, and this doesn’t even have a bald protagonist to tip the scales!

First off, it’s hilarious. It takes the premise of a world that has outlawed everything lewd and milks it for everything it’s worth. Japan is now known for attaining the status of “the nation with the most pristine public morals in the world.” Clearly, this society, mixed with a bunch of perverts looking to sex up the place, is absolutely ripe for comedy gold.

On top of that, the story is genuinely enthralling as well. Just when you think you know how things are going to pan out, it slyly throws you another curve ball. Practically everyone in this series is a total hornball, and it warms my heart (and genitals) in a way that I’ve never quite experienced before.

The thing is, much like Kill La Kill, it uses its fan service elements to strengthen the core themes of the story. It’s not just there for the sake of jerking off. There is, legitimately, a point that it’s trying to make. On the other hand, this series is all about “fun.” It never takes itself too seriously, and it works that much better because of it.

In the first episode, one of the main characters stands on top of a train station’s roof, with underwear stretched across their face, screaming classy things like “Big dick!”, “Penis!”, and “A penis pounding a pussy!” Then she throws a bunch of pornographic cards into the crowd and runs away.

It’s fucking beautiful.

Also, it made me laugh a whole bunch.

An extremely handsome Destructoid user, DeScruff, recently introduced me to this magical show, and I could not be happier. It’s now one of my top ten favorite anime of all time. It’s simultaneously unafraid to make you think about what constitutes “decency,” and it also makes a hell of an argument for why sexy stuff is awesome in the first place. It certainly may be a bit too lewd for some folks, but who cares when the results are this much fun?!?

No joke. Assuming you aren’t a priest or holy person, you should fucking watch it. It’s some really goddamn good TV. Also, cocks.

* - This guy is obviously aping Vadicta's style, but I'll let it slide since he's still fairly new in the community. It's a blog about Mario, guns, the internet, and innocence lost. A good read from start to finish.

M - LaTerry gives us his entry for this month's Bloggers Wanted, and it's all about Kingdom Hearts. Spoilers abound, so beware, but it's a good fucking blog all around!

S - SrChurros drops his latest entry in his Eternal Backlog series. For a second, I thought he was going to talk shit about Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2, and I was going to have to ban him, but luckily, it was a false alarm. It's always inspiring to see folks tackling their backlogs head on, and maybe one day I'll finally start making a dent in my own collection. (Probably not though since the Nintendo Switch is intent on constantly releasing games I want! Those dirty bastards know what they're doing!)

S - Kerrik52 hits us with his thoughts on the game Matterfall. This dude is one of the best bloggers on the site, and his opinion means quite a great deal to me. I highly recommend checking this out if you've got any interest in the game!

E - It's time for COTW!!!!

T - Chris Bradshaw delivers this top notch blog about managing one's backlog of games. There's a few typos, but the intent behind the writing itself shines through wonderfully.

T - ViceProphet gives us some tips for what not to do in Fortnite!

T - The Baked Potato throws some words down talking about many different things. One of those things talks a bit of shit about Fallout: New Vegas, so he's alright in my book! I just wish he'd throw some pictures in there to break up the text!

F - What the fuck is this?

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment

Costume Party

When it comes to October, it's pretty easy to come up with an idea for Bloggers Wanted. Halloween presents a lot of options. People will start playing horror games and marathon scary movies, but then there's the ultimate question for the day itself:

"What am I going to wear?"

Costumes are, after all, at the very heart of Halloween's fun. Whether you're playing a game with a canon character like Lara Croft, Spider-Man or a customized character in Monster Hunter World or an MMO, you're still faced with the question of what are you going to look like. Sometimes you even have stat bonuses to further complicate things, while other games have made it so you can have all the lovely stat bonuses and still make something that looks nice to you. Some folks even take this all huge step further and will realize such costumes for real-life cosplay.

As someone that posts often about Final Fantasy XIV, I have spent countless hours obtaining all kinds of armor, weapons and accessories from various corners of the game and only for the reason of it looking cool. In fact, once I have a job at 50, I feel obligated to give each of my jobs a fanciful glowing weapon before I press forward.

And then I give each job their own little pet sidekick, because I have decided my character is a Disney princess. Then I write macros that give them a blend of super sentai/Sailor Moon transformations because henshin a-go-go, baby!

But, if I'm honest, my one true love in regards to outfits in the game is the Invalician Samurai set, which I got from the Rabanastre raid. The design is pulled right from the Final Fantasy Tactics' art concept of the female samurai and is wonderfully realized.

But sometimes looking good comes at a price, too. I remember my favorite look for my Corsair in Final Fantasy XI required me wearing pants that reduced my movement speed by twenty percent and some of the best stat-based builds in Monster Hunter can make you look silly.

So this month's topic for Bloggers Wanted is costumes. Whether the costume is realized in-game or in real-life, we'd like for you to to discuss your favorite creations or tributes to characters, whether it's a custom look, a canon character or even a character skin like you'd find in Overwatch or Fortnite. You can discuss cosplays you've done, or cosplayers you admire. You can even talk about the plights of stat-based function over fashion.

The sky is the limit on this one, so head on over to our community blogs and get to writing! Use the prompt "Costume party: [Your title here]" and be sure to place "Bloggers Wanted" in the tags!

Now if you'll excuse me, I have get Bayonetta dressed up. She's heard about everyone and everything becoming Princess Peach and she would like to remind the world she was ahead of the curve on that.
