How's it going my gumdrops? Earlier, I finished watching Parasyte -The Maxim-, Michiko & Hatchin, and Naruto Shippuden. I need to remind myself NOT to eat anything, while watching Parasyte. It is disgusting staring at an alien inside the protagonist's hand walking, talking, and killing people. Just gross!
By no means am I squeamish about Parasyte -The Maxim.- However, watching this Seinen SciFi Horror Anime spoils my appetite, while eating anything. Normally, I'm hungry around 12 am and start scavenging around the house for food/snacks.
Meanwhile, Michiko & Hatchin has only 4 more episodes left to air on Adult Swim. I have been asking around the board about what could be the show's replacement. It appears that no one knows anything yet. Hopefully, it will be something else worth watching. Otherwise, I will have to re-adjust my morning TV schedule.
Lately, I have been re-watching Naruto Shippuden on Adult Swim. There is no telling how many seasons I am behind on Japan's premieres of Shippuden. Episode 286 was the last episode I remember watching and that was several years ago.
The other night, I read this article on Anime News Network about the Naruto franchise.
Call me crazy, but I believe an old Carthage College classmate published this article. The name of the journalist reminds me of an old Japanese classmate. Her name is VERY familiar.
Supposedly, Naruto and Hinata are really married to each other. Sasuke and Sakura are a couple as well. Honestly, I enjoyed the original series of Naruto much better than Naruto Shippuden, so far.
Naruto was a lot funner to watch, until the entire franchise became Sasuke Uchiha centric.
As much as I really like the name Sasuke, I never liked that character, Sasuke Uchiha. I always favored his older brother, Itachi and was pissed, that the creator killed him.
Also, I was disgusted to learn, that popular heroes and villains were killed in Naruto Shippuden, the last time I watched the Japanese premieres of each episode.
2 of The Legendary Sanin were killed, which was ridiculous. We are supposed to believe that Sasuke Uchiha killed Lord Orochimaru and his older brother, Itachi Uchiha (a former double agent/rogue ninja).
Technically, Sasuke did NOT kill Itachi. Itachi literally fought him to death and sealed all his powers into Sasuke because he knew, that he was dying but Lord Orochimaru is another issue.
I NEVER understood Masashi Kishimoto's obsession with his character, Sasuke Uchiha upstaging his protagonist Naruto. The Sasuke Centricism ad nauseam started to repel other Naruto fans.
Even though Sasuke is a popular Naruto character, Lord Orochimaru, Itachi, Asuma, Jiraiya, etc, etc. were just as popular characters, if not MORE popular than Sasuke. Last year, an Adult Swim friend said that Kishimoto "blows Sasuke too hard."
I believe most of us Naruto fans continue reading and/watching the franchise because we all want to know, if Naruto Uzumaki EVER becomes Hokage. A lot of us don't care about Sasuke being the usual Emo brat, that he has always been.
Luckily, Japan canceled Bleach. As much as I enjoyed watching Bleach more so than the Naruto franchise, Bleach ran its course with us fans. In regards to this particular series, the following article is another article from Anime News Network.
I cannot help agreeing with this journalist. Tite Kubo really should've ended Bleach after Ichigo Kurosaki defeated Sosuke Aizen. Instead, Kubo chose to spread out his Shonen Action Anime and Manga like they were turkey meat with filler arcs rather than focusing on the main arcs.
Aside from these other Shonen and Seinen Action Anime titles, I thought it would be nice to revisit Blue Exorcist with some bloopers. I frequently mentioned this Shonen Supernatural Action Anime, last year.
Blue Exorcist is about the protagonist, Rin Okumura being Satan's bastard son. His foster father sacrificed his own life to protect Rin from the demons of Gehenna. Eventually, Rin studies to become an exorcist.
Today I found some Blue Exorcist Bloopers, that were shown at an Anime Expo Panel 2 summers ago. The line about rolling papers had me laughing.
