Watched the Megami Tensei OVA. Hahaha, oh wow. 2/10.

Also this happened:





When I saw this, I reacted with incredulity for a second and then started laughing; in the middle of laughing, I suddenly stopped and cringed. If anything, at least this elicits complex emotions and reactions.

That was the best part of that OVA by far, and only because it's the only thing that was in any way memorable.

No, the best part was when it ended. That **** is barely better than Happiness.

Quote from: TV Tropes
Taking that one step further, consider the contents of the average Internet dweller's hard drive. D-Reaper may get the occasional innocent lolcat or text file, to be sure, but by dataweight, you've got to conclude that it's made up mostly of discarded porn. Eldritch indeed.

Hahahah, oh god.

I really want to watch Tamers this summer, but I don't know if I want to save that season for last or if I want to watch it now. It's the best in the series, so I'd want to arrange it in a way that places it on a pedestal.

EDIT: Berserk 322 - The true colors of Dagon!

Honestly, we have a whole lot of room open for horrible, messy and dramatic **** to be happening in this world, and instead we're spending time on a joke villain, with a joke character getting the spotlight and a random monster that's not going to be up to par with some of the stronger entities that Guts has faced. Honestly, those are some weird priorities.

Now watching Last Exile. Once this is done, I plan on picking up Canaan again and finishing that. After that, I'll figure out what I want to do with Digimon.

So, I decided to get started with my bottom 10 anime rush, and it's been one hell of a ride. Here's the list for reference, slashed out are things I've already watched, italics are for things I'm going to cover in this post:

10. Vampire Wars
9. Aos*
8. Isshoni Sleeping
7. Human Zoo
6. Apocalypse Zero
5. Armageddon
4. Garzey's Wing
3. Psychic Wars
2. Tenkuu Danzato Skelter Heaven
1. Mars of Destruction

* - The 9th lowest anime is Abunai Sisters, which has yet to be completed, so I'm not watching it. Thank fuck, too, since it looked like a sexed-up combination of Totally Spies and HiHi Puffy Amiyumi, except worse than both. Due to this, I moved Aos and Vampire Wars down by a spot.

-----

First on the list is Apocalypse Zero, a 2-episode action OVA from 1996. This is... absolutely stupid and disgusting. It's a nonsensical story centered around Kakugo Harakure, a young man who has been trained alongside his feminine brother, Harara, from childhood on to wear a sentient battle suit known as Zero and protect the common men and women of the world. The world is pretty much a total shithole covered in radiation and demons; it's essentially Fist of the North Star with radioactive monsters and demons. Now, his brother turns out to be evil (which is revealed in quite possibly the shittiest manner ever; he's first seen in a flashback before he turned evil, and then in modern day, he suddenly appears in a cut-away and announces that he's going to destroy humanity) after he fuses with his suit, Kasumi, which gives him delusions of humanity's evil and breasts. As such, he becomes the leader of a demonic army, comprised of uncompromisingly evil and disgusting creatures, and vows to fight against humanity. Way to go, retard. Now, Kakugo ends up transferring to post-apocalyptic high school, finds a dull love interest and a few friends, one of them being a bully who gets killed during a heroic sacrifice. Nobody ends up caring even though he's ostensibly friends with the cast. The love interest's importance also pretty much fades away after the final battle. Kakugo and his friends are accosted by all sorts of disgusting creatures, at which point Kakugo fuses with Zero and kills them in all sorts of horrible ways. Oh, speaking of those creatures, here's a few:

- The first demon is a gigantic, ugly and naked fat woman wearing barely-existent dominatrix bands wrapped around her, complete with several loving shots of her hairy vagina which is just barely covered up by a spiked plate. She has delusions of beauty, and as such kills every woman she encounters and rapes men. The man we see this happen to gets kissed by her so hard that his face is ripped off, which is then promptly sewed onto this woman's gigantic, bare breast. Oh, and she eats him too; she gets punched in the gut at one point, causing her to vomit 30 or so skulls along with his barely-living, dessicated body. I wish I was joking.
- The third demon is a "moe" woman wearing a nurse's outfit. She tries to seduce men because she eats them with her vagina, as one idiot finds out after he jams his arm inside of it. She eventually transforms into a monstrosity and her breasts elongate and become stretching weapons. She's also a total masochist who gets her breasts chopped off and experiences orgasm as a result. I wish I was joking.
- The fourth demon is a red-skinned old man whose saliva turns into metal and who has a dragon for a dick with literal balls of steel. At one point, he wraps his dick and balls around the protagonist and experiences orgasm. I wish I was joking.

First and foremost, this is a gross-out anime. It's entirely about being as ridiculous and disgusting as possible; I'd call it hentai if it actually had sex and didn't focus more on action. This all ends with no success whatsoever; this is absolutely creepy and disgusting, and not in any good way. Second of all, even when trying to ignore that, what you're left with is brainless action flooded with blood and gore, and a god-awful plot filled with cliches, plot holes (That plot summary up there leaves enough crevices and seams to form as system of valleys) and poorly-developed characters. Here's the ending; that fourth demon up there, Harara fuses his conscious with him and fights Kakugo with it. The body undergoes rigor mortis and, as a result, the fourth demon is killed along with Harara. No, really, Kakugo doesn't even personally fight the main villain at his strongest, Harara just gets killed in a lame-ass way. It's like a metaphor for how stupid this anime is, in its own way.

With all of that said, this isn't absolutely painful to watch; as said above, this is so stupid and gross that it enters the ridiculous and keeps running from there. It's almost interesting to see where it goes, but the thing is, it's not going to anywhere charming. We're not getting something that is so stupid that it's fun like MD Geist, we're getting something so bad that it just compounds with itself in new and creative ways. It's solely interesting just through it's own grotesque nature, which becomes so wrong and disturbing that it becomes fascinating. However, that's not to say that this enjoyable by any means; it's merely buffer that prevents it from descending into the league of Psychic Wars and Cosprayers --- 2/10

-----

Next up are Aos and Human Zoo, both of which are very short clips from the 1960's, directed by the same man. That man's works are all infamous for being terrible, due to the fact that he is fond of minimalist surreal artwork. Problem is, that generally equates to ugly drawings that are reused very often, ass-tastic animation, obnoxious sound effects and incomprehensible plots.

Aos was labeled as a "surrealist explanation of reality," which is... a lot deeper than what I got from it. It's a 9 minute long film comprised of short, strangely-drawn and repetitive clips containing... uh, fuck if I know, it's completely random all the time. Most of it seems to be a sexual metaphor outside of the parts where it becomes explicit, but this thing is just so abstract and ugly that I have no clue what to think. It's... still vaguely engrossing just because it's so strange, although it is such just because it's so incredibly creepy. Thing is, the film's audio is completely and utterly terrible. The audio is directed by none other than Yoko fucking Ono, before she had injected herself into Beatles history. The audio is entirely comprised of woman making repetitive noises that either sound vaguely or explicitly like she's having an orgasm. It's awkward, grating and disturbing and a massive detractor from something that really didn't have anything going for it from the beginning. In the end, while this sounds like there's too much to say for me to review it, it's actually the opposite; this really doesn't have anything to it and there's nothing to say, it's just... strange for its own sake. It's not unrelentingly offensive, but it's still very lacking of depth and... well, virtually anything. --- 3/10

Human Zoo is much more lucid, however, and that's not a good thing on its part. Note that, in the previous paragraph, I had a fondness for the word, "repetitive." That's word is a great adjective for Human Zoo, alongside "fucking awful." Human Zoo is a 2 minute "film" (the opening credits, which scream 60's, take up a fourth of the entire thing) comprised of, once again, poorly-drawn and repetitive clips that depict women treating men like animals. There are about 8 of these clips and all of them are used for 1 or 2 seconds each with obnoxious noises accompanying them. That doesn't make 1 and a half minutes, so they're regularly reused, and well, that's it. This is just terrible in all regards; it may not be as painful as other offerings elsewhere, but this serves no other purpose than to remain at the bottom of the barrel. --- 1/10

-----

Last thing on the list is easily the entry that I had the largest problem with watching: Isshoni Sleeping. This is the second entry in the Isshoni series of fanservice videos that star a completely generic moeblob, Hinako, who is treated as the virtual girlfriend of the watcher. For this particular entry, she decides to "sleep with the viewer" in the most virginal sense you could conjure; essentially, she's sleeping alone on a bed, while the camera pans on her breasts, her ass and her cameltoe. The first 25 minutes of this is spent doing nothing but alternating between these camera pans. I am not fucking joking. Afterwards, the rest of this OVA panders to more cerebral moe traits, as Hinako alternates from being awake and being asleep, with her sleepwalking to the kitchen, singing to the viewer about how much she wants you to sleep on her breasts and assorted dream sequences involving her weight. That's all there is to it, and yes, this is as awful as it sounds. I feel like a total creep for watching this. --- 2/10.

My plans fell through, so I'll say this just to make myself feel better: ESH, you're a total idiot, you're missing the point, please die.

...and to, well, you know who you are, you are a god damn pussy. Please die.

Watching Mars of Destruction to completion for the first time in 19 or so months was kinda fun, even if me and Ahriman slogged through an hour of pure shit. I feel like I have accomplished something by getting Ahriman to call Psychic Wars the worst anime he has ever seen.

Watching more Last Exile. Tatiana has only appeared three times now and she's already lol tier. It's like every adult Michelle Ruff voices is a total cunt.

Last Exile...

Oh yeah. Pointless firing squads on ships that could wipe them out with one of their cannons? Crazy flying ships? Crispin Freeman gets the best character and parts again? That one?

watch more than one episode

This show is actually pretty great so far, even if Gonzo is behind it.
