Comment on Moebyou: “Deredere Rikka = Overkill” by Anonymous:

It is about the oneiric/occult-themed fancy language (in the broadest of meanings) a few stimulatory deprived young waifs use to develop a sense of preoccupation with life in their stale, inconsiderate environment, and to train their creativity in the process. Their exploits meet with dismay on part of the rest of the characters, who are either already tired with their own efforts in the field, or never found the prospect appealing.

It shows you how, owing to boredom and self-consciousness, you get the proverbial everything and the opposite of everything in life. Also, about perspective, and where the boundaries of mindsets brought about by stages of personal development lie. And how quirky the straight-man renouncement of socially unfavorable peculiarities can be. It’s not sold as highbrow stuff, you get the regular noisy, tussling, cutesy delivery.

If you like girls solemnly acting out dark, bombastic battle anime in tepid slice-of-life settings, and are not put off by visual kei lyrics or juvenile blogging stereotypes, try it. Since the lines are elegant, vibrant and light-hearted (in the subbed versions), the show does well and is likeable. On the other hand, the jerkiness average across the character cast is astounding, but there are hints in some scenes as to how this may have been thought to serve realism.

  • Pokken Tournament: “Pokémon x Tekken!?”:
    Why does that matter? No one asked for anything, they are being made. And I can’t speak for your tastes, but Tekken is a great game. Pokemon already fight each other. I’d hardly call a pokemon fighting game with a good engine “frankenstein’s monster.” Throwing in marketing is just as dumb. Guess what, it’s a market. marketing is part of a markets. Mashups are in everything. Should they not do it because the cynics will start crying “baw i didn’t want this”?

    Well played Nintendo, you just sold me a Wii U.

  • Wake Up Girls Mend Their Ways:
    PROTIP: both of those are Shinkansen. Even the colours are mostly correct. So again, why the pointless redraw, unless someone put in the wrong train for the *location* or JR East/JR West lines, whereever the show actually takes place. Correcting THAT would be ridiculously anal but I wouldn’t put it past the Japanese.

    I think DHY was actually ADV’s first licensed anime, actually.
