Ex-blogger extraordinaire ghostlightning wrote a post called ‘Would our anime heroes enjoy anime?’ back in 2008, and it wasn’t until my viewing of Re:Creators that I would give the idea much thought. Though had I read his post way back when, I’d probably have reflected on it a lot more because it’s such a fun and interesting concept. Go read his post if you haven’t already by the way, it’s an interesting and awesome read!
I’ve already talked about the coolest aspects in Princess Principal, and I still standby what I said about the OP, aesthetic and (possibly erroneous) interpretation of the show in relation to the fickle nature of moe. Call it recency bias, but I still think Princess Principal is really cool!
I don’t know what compelled me to finally dig up the grounds of anime legacy and unearth this series, apart from perhaps a give-in to my long felt build up of guilt for having not watched such a classic. But I’m glad I did, because it was, despite some of its arguably dated aspects, an engrossing watch. Berserk is, I feel, a rarity, in that it doesn’t play around and try to bullshit the viewer. No, it treats you as it treats Guts. Like. A. Fucking. Adult.
Ponyo is an irrepressibly joyful movie. It’s just so wonderful and gorgeous to look at. You get a bubbly feeling watching it because it fully embraces its positive emotions, and through unbelievably beautiful visuals uses its art and animation to amazing effect in making these happy and joyous emotions felt.
Here at Humble Ace, I’m (not) always thinking of ways of articulating my enjoyment and appreciation when it comes to anime and anime-related stuff (among other things).
Nothing to see here, carry on.
What, you’re staying? Seriously? O-Okay. But let it be known that I gave you fair warning. I’ve nothing good to say about any of these characters. You understand that, right? Fine. Suit yourself. Don’t expect me to justify myself here though. I have nothing but contempt for these characters and words alone are not enough to express that.
It’s hard to believe I’m writing my 100th post already. It still feels like I’m only starting out. The Humble Ace blog has been around for about seven months now, and I’m very happy for making it when I did, because it led me to become a part of this amazing community. There’s been an awesome amount of support, interest, and commentary from fellow bloggers, whom I want to thank for their likes, comments, and shares on this journey. Reading and commenting on others’ blogs has been a humbling experience in and of itself, so much so that I kind of wish I had started lurking around blogs before I decided to make one myself.
