Everyone knows the original Power Rangers theme song, right? How many are you are familiar with the new themes from later seasons? Thanks to the Disney Channel (as well as having a four-year-old cousin who watches all the shit I watched as a child), I've sampled a little of just about every season of the series, and I gotta say... I dig the theme songs. Sure, they're the cheesiest of cheese and sound like they were all recorded the same afternoon by the same group, but I love that butt rock garbage! I love how there is some mandate that the lyrics contain the same "Go! Go!" chant in every incarnation. It's a carry-over from the Fox Kids days, I assume. Ever realize how every Fox Kids cartoon theme song mentions "Go! Go!" or "Gotta go!" or some other permutation? So damn lazy.

The Rangers will be coming back soon, this time on Nickelodeon, and I can't wait to see what schlock they cook up this time! I'm dead serious, though. If someone today offered me a role of a Ranger in an upcoming series, I would say, "Fuck yeah!"

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.
