Sonic The Hedgehog is an Eco-Terrorist

What the fuck did I just read?

The Reaf Debrief

If you lived in the 90s you would’ve hear of Sonic the Hedgehog, Sega’s mascot for its gaming systems. For those unenlightened Sonic is a popular video game character from the 90s who’s blue hedgehog that runs really fast and defends his forest friends from the “evil” Dr Robotnik. He then imprisons them in robotic “Badniks” that Sonic most smash to release them. Sonic has had many spin-offs, cartoons, comics, and really horrible stuff fans wish to forget.

There was always a bit of an environmental message going through the franchise, though that moral has been a bit lost since they put him in the human world in the 3D games. Running around trying to stop the industrialist Robotnik from turning the green zones into cities and factories. That gets a bit more blatant in the cartoons, especially in the second series fan nicknamed SatAM, with him being part of…

Let’s have a clusterfuck this time.

  • Wooser: I have to admit, this season isn’t as good as the first one. But that doesn’t make it bad. In fact, it’s pretty fucking hilarious. And oh yeah…

THAT FUCKING ENDING SONG!!!!

  • Tonari no Seki-kun: While I don’t find this show as funny as everyone else seems to find it, it’s still pretty hilarious, especially the second and the seventh. So it looks this will be a keep for good.
  • Wake Up, Girls!: This show is by far, the best show this season! The characters, the realism, and the second opening theme song is all it takes for this show to be my favorite. Who knew that a Lucky Star staff wouldn’t fuck this up?

Image

  • Go! Go! 575: For what it is, it’s not that terrible, but it’s still bad.

Expect a review later.

Image

  • Space Dandy: From the two/three episodes I’ve watched so far, this is one the best shows of the seasons.

Oops, I meant dandiest.

  • It’s hilarious, the dub’s amazing, the characters are a joy to watch, and the fucking opening theme song is so bad that it’s good!

Damn it, I meant dandy! Fuck!

  • Sekai Seifuku: I stopped watching this show because when I watched the second episode, Crunchyroll kept buffering, so I just gave up and never went back ever since.
  • Noragami: Actually, I’ve never watched this show so far, but I will watch it, so don’t worry.

Image

  • Nagi no Asukara: It’s not because it’s a terrible show. In fact, it’s pretty decent for a drama. However, the reason why I dropped it is because I’m too impatient to watch a twenty-six episode anime weekly.
  • Sonico: FUCK THIS SHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Sakura Trick: Its’ cheap characters, awful jokes, worthless cliches, and blatant fetishism made me drop this show and call it one the worst.
  • Pupipo! and Pupa: I put these two together because these went from my biggest hypes to my biggest disappointments in one episode. Pupipo!’s problems are the fact that the jokes aren’t funny and the one-dimensional characters are awful. Pupa’s problems, on the other hand, are the fact that Studio Deen fucked up and made it a short and not a full-length series like it should’ve, thus making the series rushed and incomplete.

Wow, this is a pretty mediocre season so far. Let’s hope that Spring will make it up. Though I do have to say that the songs this seasons aren’t as bad as the entirety of last year, the worst year for anime opening and ending songs.

See you soon! 

Spring 2014 Anime!

ALLLLLLLLLL RIGHT! It’s time to see which anime I’ll watch and won’t watch.

Image

Mekaku City Actors: Again with the Vocaloid fandom thing. Fuck Jin.

Soul Eater Not!: I kind of like Soul Eater, and from what I’ve read of the concept, this is a lot lighter than the original. Let’s just hope this is any good.

Black Bullet: This seems to have a pretty damn cool concept.

Captain Earth: I’m only watching this to make Captain Planet jokes.

Mahou Shoujo Taisen: I know this seems pretty normal in Japan, but hot damn! This sounds fucking awesome!!!

Image

Futsuu no Joshikousei ga [Locodol] Yatte Mita: Okay, this concept sounds entertaining enough.

Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka?: I’ve heard a lot of people hyping it, especially in Japan.

Isshuukan Friends: Am I seriously the only one who thinks this sounds cute…? Probably because I’m a sadist.

Akuma no Riddle: Yeah, the yuri part sounds like shit and all, but the other part of the concept sounds pretty cool.

 

 

 

And that’s all for Spring 2014! See you in April!

 

Let’s Review a Fanime: Quest to Save Gumi

“Shouldn’t this be on your MMD account?”

Yes, but this a reviewing account primarily, so it counts. Don’t worry; I’ll reblog this review to it.

Anyways, let’s review Quest to Save Gumi!

First, I want to say that the animation in the series is beautiful! I mean, gorgeous! The best MMD animation I’ve seen in a long time! I am certainly not joking about it!

However, just because a show has great visuals doesn’t mean that it’s automatically great *coughKyoAnicough*. And that’s where the problems begin.

The characters are extremely one-dimensional and have no depth to them. Especially the villains. In fact, the creator of this series, dEBUG, never really reveals why the villains want to kidnap Gumi, the title character. Maybe they’ll explain later on, but it still kind of baffles me. The dialogue is also painful to read as well, but hey! That’s what you get when you have bland, one-dimensional characters. The pacing’s okay, I do have to admit. But the biggest problem of this show is the opening sequence.

My God. If I were as sensitive as the average Tumblr user, I’d call the opening sequence disrespectful to the show’s concept. Actually, fuck it. I’m just going to say it publicly:

THE OPENING SEQUENCE IS DISRESPECTFUL TO THE SHOW’S CONCEPT!

I mean, damn! Way to shit on your own show, douche. It doesn’t fit, it hasn’t fit, and it will NEVER fit. It’s way too happy and upbeat for the dark and serious tone the show displays. If you want an upbeat opening sequence that fits the show’s concept and tone, watch Sonic SatAM and then come back to talk to me. Or hell, why not just use the ending sequence as the opening sequence? It fits with the show damn fine.

Overall, I give this a 60/D.

mediocre

I’m bored. Let’s call out some bullshit.

Image

It’s been a pretty long time since I called anyone’s bullshit (probably where 45% of my followers come here for) out. So I decided to celebrate Hobbes Day by doing so. Let’s start today, shall we?

I am here to defend YOHIOloid, because I can’t bare to see the lack of defense for my favorite VOCALOID.

 

sounds like Piko, sounds like a genderbent Lily

No, every Vocaloid sounds unique. YOHIOloid’s voice isn’t near as high pitched and nasally as Piko, and his voice is not as strong as Lily’s. Heck, his voice isn’t even as strong as Piko’s.

Every Vocaloid sounds unique…

Mr., the newest Vocaloid, Kokone, would like for you to step in her office for a minute. 

Okay, there’s your joke for today. On the serious note, you remember a small little rant I made on my MMD account where I rant about a topic that I still have the same opinion on? Yeah, you guys should read this, then come back to me, okay?

And while I do agree that Yohioloid does have his own voice that sounds unique, I can still see where the original complainer was going. Sure, he doesn’t sound like Piko in anyway, but he kind of does sound like a genderbent Lily.

bland design

It’s not bland, if you ask me. It’s not complex, but it certainly is unique from others. That’s just my opinion though. But have you ever thought that maybe, just maybe, you can modify his appearance to fit your headcanon? Every VOCALOID’s design is pretty much just a base, and you’re allowed to imagine them looking differently from their original design.

Bland doesn’t equal not unique (at least to me). I can agree with you, OP, on the fact that on its own, Yohioloid’s character design is not bland, and it is also unique. However, comparing it to other designs, yes, it kind of is bland. Especially when you compare it to a newer Vocaloid, Maika. It’s unique, yes. But unique ≠ good.

no good songs

You probably haven’t bothered looking for many songs, then. Try looking beyond his demo songs and popular songs. Please give him a chance and actually look hard for good original songs.

OP, fuck you. No really, fuck you. You don’t know this person. In fact, he/she might’ve looked up and listened to a bunch of Yohioloid’s songs, unpopular and popular. Don’t judge; it’s a rude thing to do.

not having a better name

He’s also being used to promote the singer, YOHIO. He is essentially the VOCALOID version of YOHIO, and they’re making it clear that he is the VOCALOID of YOHIO.

And that is what makes him a cash cow. This Vocaloid was made only to promote the singer YOHIO and nothing else. There is no other reason for this Vocaloid’s existence. Plus, there are ways to promote a singer and make it subtle at the same time. Gumi is a great example of this. At a first glance, some people may not know that this Vocaloid is promoting Megumi Nakajima. But if they do some research and find out some clues, it becomes apparent. Same with Lily.

not professional

Vocatone is a fairly new VOCALOID company, so they’re not as experienced and professional as the big VOCALOID companies, so of course his voice doesn’t sound as professional. As for his Japanese voice, this was their first time making a Japanese speaking vocal, so it’s understandable why he wouldn’t sound as good as other Japanese VOCALOIDs.

Hello, Vocatone has also made another Vocaloid. You, late in December of 2011. Yeah, his is Oliver, and he wants to tell you that he’s insulted because his voice is higher quality and more professional sounding than Yohioloid. If this was Oliver you were defending for this argument, I would understand. But it’s not. Bplats was a small company, and they managed to make some the highest quality Vocaloids out there- VY1 and VY2. And don’t forget that the quality for Yohioloid’s Japanese quality is the same as his English. 

Agree or disagree? Either way, it’s the end of the show for me.
