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

Villains that did nothing wrong

Villains in all media, not just video games, can end up being a dime a dozen. Far too often, a villain's motives boil down to "I am a bad, and so I do bad things. Fear me." While this format has worked for countless stories, at this point in my life (the ripe old age of 20) I’ve become jaded and grumpy, finding myself rolling my eyes when I see yet another antagonist wreaking havoc with no background or reasoning presented as to why they’re being such a butthole.

What’s far more interesting to me is when a villain’s motives or actions come across as justified, perhaps leaving you rooting for them to defeat the protagonist [insert Elder God Tier villain meme here].

My favorite example of this would be Meruem from the Chimera Ant arc of Hunter x Hunter. While he doesn’t necessarily fit the exact mold I laid out above, he’s easily one of the most dynamic and curious villains I’ve ever come across. For the sake of not spoiling what is perhaps one of the most exciting, action-packed, and tear-inducing arcs in anime history, I won’t delve into the details of what makes Meruem so great. Instead I encourage anyone who hasn’t seen Hunter x Hunter to set aside some time and plow through the series. Really, it’s that good.

But hey, that’s just how I feel. I’m sure there are folks out there who prefer their villains to be simple. If I ever met one of these theoretical people I might have a panic attack, but I’ll deal with that should the time come. I’m sure after some deep breaths we would get along. Maybe we could even snuggle, should my husband allow such an event to transpire.

All said and done, we arrive at the topic of this month’s Bloggers Wanted: Villains that did nothing wrong. Due to communication errors, this entry in the hallowed halls of Bloggers Wanted is a tad late. Regardless, all you have to do is head over to the Community Blog section of the site, and whip up a Cblog about a villain who you feel was secretly the good guy all along.
