Oops! I nearly forgot about Friday's recaps! I've been spending way too much time playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf this week, which was a gift from my boyfriend (now that I have constant access to his 3DS since we're living together). It was a gift and a curse, since I don't know how I'm expected to get anything important done when there is a new Animal Crossing to play.

In Animal Crossing, I became the new mayor of Inaba (we're both really big fans of Persona 4), and quickly got to work building my house, meeting the neighbors, and catching fish. At the moment, my small house is mostly an aquarium of sorts, housing some of my favorite animals (squid, octopus, nautilus, piranha, ocean sunfish). I haven't found too much actual furniture that I really like yet.



My neighbors are all pretty cool, for the most part. Genji and Lobo are my favorites so far. Pancetti and Chops are pretty weird, and the other neighbors are OK but mostly forgettable. I always hope I get Bob or Octavian, because they're awesome, but I don't think I've ever had them in any of my Animal Crossing towns. Oh well.



Also, Nook's shop hasn't been selling any tools except the fishing rod and shovel all week, and it's starting to piss me off! No bug nets, no axes, no watering cans, no slingshots... give me options, Nook! I can't wait for the store to expand, but I'm not sure when that will happen.

Anyway, these recaps are late enough already so I better stop talking and just post the damn thing! ...and also I can get back to Animal Crossing ;)

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.
