How's it going my gumdrops? There are a few reminders I forgot to share with you all within the last 2 blogs. Recently, I noticed that those of you, who "Like" these blogs on facebook should directly COME to It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns, and "Like" them.
You may be wondering, "What's the difference?"
While browsing around here on my tablet and laptop last week, I noticed that even though you may have "Liked" blogs from your end, the Likes aren't showing here on these blogs. Therefore, it would be MUCH better for you to click on the facebook "Like" button HERE on this blog specifically. Then, it should appear.
Also, it would be really appreciated if you would give your feedback in the comments section. I may not respond back to you immediately, but I ALWAYS respond back to comments regardless of how new or old the comments are on my blogs.
If you need a better understanding of the site, the following blog is a re-sharing of important information about It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns:
Last week, I forgot to mention that Blue Exorcist is actually getting another season. This is fantastic news for us fans. Hopefully with a 2nd season, there will be more exploration with the character, Renzo Shima.
The finale to this Supernatural Shonen Jump Action Anime felt more incomplete as if it was a cliffhanger. Even though Rin Okumura is the protagonist, I still am quite fond of Renzo Shima. He and Rin Okumura are my favorite characters from Blue Exorcist.
Shima wants to act like he is Don Juan yet he is quite a cowardly character. That is always hilarious to watch.
About 2 years ago, I remember reading a summary about the Blue Exorcist Manga and its characters. Renzo Shima, if memory serves me right, becomes a double agent and is very skilled with his weapons. If this is the actual case in the Manga, I really hope the animators show this in Blue Exorcist's next season.
Aside from those reminders and brief news updates, how did you enjoy yesterday's Song Saturday? Are you feeling nostalgic from the 1984 theme song to the movie, Ghostbusters? If so, there's more '80s nostalgia for you today.
Last night, I was able to locate the old Ghostbusters cartoon I grew up watching from the 1980's. If you are at least in your mid-30's like myself, you should remember The Real Ghostbusters. The Real Ghostbusters debuted in 1986, which was 2 years after the original Ghostbusters movie. I CANNOT believe that it has been nearly 30 years, since I last watched this old cartoon!
The best part about re-watching old cartoons from your childhood as an adult would be having a better understanding of what is happening. Whenever I re-watch an old movie or show, it is more like viewing something without blinders over my eyes; It's like being a virgin to that show or movie all over again.
There are more times, when I re-watch a show or movie and think to myself, "I don't remember this happening. When did this happen?" or "Hmm, I never thought of it that way."
While re-watching The Real Ghostbusters' episode "Ghosts R Us," I began realizing how much Dr. Egon Spengler's physical appearance reminded me of some of the characters we see in today's Anime.
This made me question, if those in charge of the animation were Japanese animators.
After watching the ending credits scroll during the end of "Ghosts R Us," I saw a lot of Japanese names listed for the animation. This explained a lot to me. Even though The Real Ghostbusters was an American cartoon, some of the characters had more Anime- like physical features. The way Dr. Egon Spengler was drawn was automatically a dead give away for me.
It's amazing how much you can learn by watching Japanese animation! Things that make you go hmm...
Okay, now I am really showing my age here. Anyway, if you have NEVER had the chance to watch The Real Ghostbusters circa 1986, you now have the chance for today's Cartoon Sunday.
The Real Ghostbusters Season 1: Episode 1 "Ghosts R Us" (1986)
