C episode 11: What a headache!

After the 11 episodes of C- The Money of Soul and Possibility Control, I find myself to think “WTF is the point of this anime?” 8-9 episodes of Yoga soul-searching for a path in his life. Present or Future…fight or not to fight…Get rich or die…Destroying the financial business vs destroying life. In the end, it turned into an epic fight between Mikuni who believes in the present and Yoga who believes in the future. Yoga wins by destroying the Yen currency in Japan which would weaken Mikuni’s powers. However, shouldn’t that apply to Yoga too? I don’t see how that makes much sense. While the fight was entertaining enough, I had to switch my brain off for a little while.

Yoga wins and what?

We get this shitty god-like dude who’s behind the Financial district saying to Yoga that its purpose is to lead people for a better future. RIGHTTTTT, suicide+people no longer existing = better future? LOL, maybe the anime is referencing that the world is a better place when there’s less humans. We need to to go back to the past and erase the existence of Willy Wonka in order to get rid of any source of inspiration used for C’s trolling.

Ok, the win of Yoga enables him to use the rotary press to give everyone’s future back. There’s a few catches. The present is a different world, so the future is different too. He doesn’t get Hanabi who is a different person. Msyu probably won’t become his daughter, but he does get her kiss in that episode though. The US Dollar currency replaces the Yen in japan…wait what? I’m facepalming at the fact this anime is trying to say that America is the Savior! Just ridiculous… Why not make Bush as the main character in a second season? Season 2 would be called B: Bush- The Debt of Soul and Possibly Retarded.

Questions such as “WTF is the Midas Money?” has yet to be answered. In the end, it is just black money with unknown effect to reality.

By using the rotary press, while it is to buy everyone’s future, it is really unknown if there was any change to Yoga’s future. He’s fighting for the future and all but using the black card means sacrificing your own future. A)Does buying everyone’s future include his own future? If yes, this black card is flawed. If no, then, what’s the point of fighting for everyone’s future when you’re damaging yours?

But seriously, after all the personal inner conflicts on choosing future or present, the climax is that the financial district district still exists and will still exist as long as there is a future. After 11 episodes, the animators finally realized they created an impossible dilemma to solve with the little amount of time. You bankrupt someone and the loser’s life and surroundings lose all future. You try to keep someone alive and it fucks everyone’s future.You try to avoid fighting and have your opponent or yourself cut your cash in half which should…still fuck you. 11 episodes to tell you that there is no possible choice but to buy some time with the black card. But since the future is alternated, is Yoga’s new future as strong as his past future? Will someone even have the same conclusion as him when the erasing of the financial district occurs? In the end, the anime showed that the animators had no ideas what to do with the ending. However I’ll give credit to them for making me think a bit, even though I got a huge headache.

C could easily become a visual novel game using the style of Higurashi or Steins;Gate, where we try to find the ultimate route to the happy ending (LOL). I already thought up of 2 possible ending that could work in the ideal circumstance.

1)To accept fighting: However, do nothing but have a cup of tea during the 666 seconds which results into a draw. You don’t gain. You don’t lose. You don’t receive damage. No change to reality? But like I said, it’s on an ideal circumstance which is still impossible in real circumstance due human’s nature to go forward with enrichment and power which would cause distrust between the opposing forces. You know world peace is impossible.

2)Yoga can always spend his life to expose the financial district to the real world and go witch-hunting on the entrees. However, senseless killing will occur which results into a bad future.

As you can see, no matter what ending comes up, it comes to the same thing. This anime is just telling us “Humanity is fucked and so let’s ask the help of the US”.

3)Have Hatsune Miku stand before the erasing power of C and activate this:

You know Mikuni fails compared to Abridged Seto Kaiba since he can’t screw the rules.

While I would consider the series a 7.5/10 when i turn off my brain, the last episodes gets a brilliant 10……………………………………………..out of 100 :p

In the end, Montreal picked Nathan Beaulieu

Well, my predictions for Montreal in the NHL 2011 draft was completely wrong, since no one could have expected to see Nathan Beaulieu drop into the 17th pick. I said Montreal needed big or super-talented forwards, but in the end, Pierre Gauthier did the right choice into picking the best overall player available in the draft that is the defenseman Nathan Beaulieu. It was surprising since I was expecting Montreal to go for a totally random guy from the US program (lol) or for Tyler Biggs which would make me rage. While still needing to become stronger physically, he is still reportedly the best skater of the draft who’s a good puck mover with a solid first pass and good shot. I find this move to be pretty exciting for the defensive corp in Montreal for the future seasons to come.

Japanese Game Industry Needs to Understand the West

At least that is the opinion of Hideo Kojima, one of the most famous Japanese game developpers, creator of the Metal Gear series.

http://www.1up.com/news/hideo-kojima-japanese-obsession-overseas

It’s been a frequent chorus in Japanese mags and online sites for a couple of years now. There’s a gap in development skill between Japanese and Western developers; the US and Europe aren’t interested in Japanese games the way they used to be; something needs to be done about this. Hideo Kojima, mastermind of the Metal Gearseries, isn’t so sure about that any longer.”Do we really need to succeed worldwide?” he asked Famitsu magazine in an interview published in this week’s issue. “That’s what I’m really wondering about. Everyone talks about overseas, overseas, but nobody’s really thinking about what needs to be done if we want to succeed. We get obsessed with thinking about worldwide because we’ve had previous success with games and anime worldwide, but none of those successes matter nowadays. When you’re making a game, it doesn’t matter what nationality the team is — I think there was a lack of understanding among Japanese developers on that issue. It all comes down to the team you have. Even if I brought in the best developer in the world, it won’t result in anything if nobody around him understands what he says.”

It may sound a bit like Kojima, whose flagship series has always sold better overseas than in Japan, is hoisting up the white flag. However, he sees it more as simply accepting reality. “It’s hard to feel this when you’re in Japan, but there is a gap opening between the West in terms of pure quality,” he said. “If you’re trying to break out overseas, then I think the only way is to divide your development teams between the Japanese and global markets. It’s impossible to encompass it in a single group — everything needs to be separate, down to the office and pay structure. There are loads of talented developers overseas, but you can’t get them unless you spend the money. If you base your calculations off the standard Japanese salary structure, nobody’s going to come to you. It’s the difference between what you pay a Hollywood star versus a Japanese film star.”

So it’s a money issue, but Kojima also noted that it’s a case of Japanese developers wanting their cake and eating it too — in other words, striving for acceptance (and sales) in the US, but not really making the changes required to make that happen. “To put it in an extreme fashion, Americans like games where you have a gun and you’re shooting at space aliens,” he said. “If you don’t understand why that’s fun, then you shouldn’t be making games for the world market; you don’t need to. I mean, Japanese people might say ‘Why space aliens?’, but Americans will counter with ‘What’s with these games featuring these feminine-looking boys fighting in Japan with these huge swords?’ It’s no wonder the target audience for a lot of games is getting so compartmentalized.”

Diverging genres of gaming — and, in fact, the blurring of genres across the industry — also play a role. “In the 8-bit days,” Kojima noted, “you had to symbolize a lot of things and make gamers follow certain rules. In the West, that did a complete 180 starting with the PS2. It’s no longer the game designer’s job to think up the rules; his job is to dissect gamers’ preferences and build a world they can get addicted to. That’s why having FPSes dominate the US market into the future is absolutely fine by me.”

So where does the answer lie in Kojima’s mind? To him it’s simple: make useful changes. That was somewhat symbolized with Kojima’s reveal of the Fox Engine before E3. “Once that’s complete, we’ll be able to develop games more intuitively as well as far more efficiently,” he told Famitsu “That’s the way games are normally developed overseas, but we just didn’t have that.”

Archer: The Return of the Adult Cartoons

Ever since Family Guy and Futurama, there weren’t many succesful cartoons for the adult audience in America. Surely, there were some shows like American Dad or Bob’s Burgers which had their 15 minutes of fame and then quited down. Yet, it wasn’t anything spectacular and the American cartton industry started falli apart.

But eveerything is not over. With Archer, FX strike and strike hard.

The plot consists basically of the secret agent Archer, who works for his horny mother’s spy agency. Accompanied by his hot ex, his ex’s new boyfriend and other losers, Archer does funny shit and has a lot of sex.

This show is literally amazing, full with a lot of tits and incredible jokes.It is like watching James Bond written by Trey Parker and Matt Stone. In its third season, this show is definitely promising and, hopefully, will stay awesome for a long, long time.

Gundam Age Trailer: Couldn’t be more ridiculous

Ever imagined what would happened if Inazuma Eleven merged with Gundam? This sort of crap happens. Well, some expressed concern that Gundam Age would be a comedy like the SD series. I think we got something worse. This series will most likely join the Seed series as part of the worst gundam shows ever.
