As well we talk about anime of the new season.

Mini Review-Attack of the Super Monsters.

Turns out dinosaurs have been living in the center of the earth for millions of years. When the leader of the dinosaurs the Evil Tyrannous declares war on the surface world. A team is crated to battle these ferocious creatures. The Team is called the Gemini Force. Ok tell me if this sounds like a a really bad toy commercial. Well back int he early 80s a vhs company purchased the rights for a poorly made Saturday Morning Cartoon from Japan and decided to put their own spin on the franchise. What was the result? A Dinosaur sized fail and great comedy. As the show progresses . The dub company decided to insert their dialogue including rabid dogs looking like their ex wife to Cam Clark ( famous for TMNT and Akira) voicing a talking T. Rex dinosaur.

supermonsters7

To put things of the mixture of bad animation, puppet work and rubber dinosaur suits fighting thunderbird jets doesn’t even make much sense.

Attack of the Super Monsters

 

But with all these mistakes it creates a great comedy as you enjoy the cringiest thing ever created.

State of the World- For Geeks that are struggling

As I write this the world is this crazy brink where everyone is consumed with the idea that they themselves know all the answers in this world. Especially in Fandom, conventions this only gets worse for most people. The lines of who to consider your friends and which you don’t get more hazy. So this article is to help others and myself articulate the problems most people around my age or at any age to tell others know your not alone. Your not the crazy one here its just people have become afraid of admitting they don’t know the answers.

1 Polarizing Nature of the World
Somewhere between the Occupy Movement to GamerGate. Fandom and people in general have been polarized and just got to the point where they will not accept other opinions and viewpoints. This also happens from Social Groups, to conventions to the workplace. It can hard to create balance in our own lives. Whether its overly empathy or being consumed with frustration and anger. From Trump and Brexit to The New Liberal Left to Feminism we like to play the Black and white narrative viewpoint. It can be worrying when you see your friends becoming addicted to this over the top hatred of the other side without understanding each other.

relife-2

My advice

I know its frustrating but sometimes we need to stay moderate on issues because if we continue to lead down this path we will become so disconnected and become jaded by our own beliefs,interests and activism.

2. Finding our own place with our own personality
This is a hard one for everyone. A lot of people like to latch on to some sense of identity. “I am Feminist, I’m Poly or Pan whatever as a label to create a sense of community. This is very evident at conventions nowadays where people come to lose themselves for a weekend at a time in a false identity or recreating their high school days of trying to be popular or accepted. As we get older some of us become comfortable becoming different versions of ourselves. Others not so much especially when you yourself have gone through many drastic changes over time to adapt to the Real world. There’s the real you , the you portray to your friends, the one where you try to attract a partner or the business version of yourself.
It can be hard at times to juggle these roles. Measuring confidence and cocky. Balancing the true self with the the identity you want to promote or attract.

perfect_blue_screenshot_2

My advice
Its all a experiment really. While you find a balance with some personas such as our workplace persona or our convention persona.

3. Disconnection

As we get older we our social circles begin to smaller and smaller. Some of our friends we made in high school start to change sometimes for the better but other times for the worse. Some can be overly obsessed with interests and regress back to teenagers not . At times we can find it difficult to make new social circles as we get older. You can and most likely go through all sorts of online advice sites trying to help you try to make new friends and social groups. Finding the answers to
this is hard work and mostly frustrating.

My advice
I still struggle with this. Being a geek from 2 separate cultures . I struggle to balance my own personas with a constant feeling of disconnection. I am on the Spectrum and constantly feel like I have hit a brick wall on my own personal development. I have thought a good few times that maybe the things I enjoy are the things holding me back . Anime, videogames,tabletop rpgs,horror movies. In the end though I have figured out one thing.
Life doesn’t matter if you give up any of this.
All you can is struggle to strive forward. Really focus first on things that help you become independent as individual. Employment and personal mental health. Then you can have the funds to fuel your interests and get you out there.

4. Real World

From personal health issues , funds, trying to find employment to finding love
These can weigh you down and create a internal pressure.

chaos10144

My advice
This is a big one I try to balance my life as best as I can really. I know at times I will project a optimistic objective non-biased viewpoints and listen to both sides of a conversation on many topics some many of you agree with others not so much.
But with the external pressures in the world and my own needs to find new social groups , grow as a adult and as a person and find a partner myself.
I tend to have meltdowns occasionally, Moment of releasing the pressures of the outside world despite how much I change, evolve I know the fears of Statistics especially people like me . Numbers created way before topics of Nationalism, Social Justice became household terms. I know women have to deal with unnecessary standards of beauty, rape culture and dealing with either overzealous friends or pua tactics and men have have to deal with the same things but be constantly have to protect the way we think or act.

The only I can really say  is you are not alone. This writer also feels constantly frustrated with dealing losing chances to make friends or partners because of my disconnect or scumbags puas , or simply overly polarized people to make yourself feel alone.

Would you like a do over – Re:Life

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to redo your life or even just certain parts of it . I know myself I certainly do. What I missed out especially in my teenage to early 20s . Things we miss due to what we thought was the best decision or out of fear of failure.

relife-chapter-102

Sometimes life is all about second chances especially in cases like this anime.

Re:life is based on a web comic of the same name created by Yayoiso.

The story revolves around a 27 young man who has recently  made unemployed after quitting his  claiming that it’s because it “does not fit his highest potential”. As a result of this action, he finds it difficult to gain a full-time job at another company and instead he works as a part-timer at a mini market. One day, a mysterious man named Ryo offers him a new employment prospect but first he needs to become a tester for ReLife: a scientific experiment to make him look like he’s 17 again and attend high school for one year. After the year ends they will forget about anything he said or did .

relife-2.png

There he will be put to the test to see if he help others around him using the experience he’s learned over the years to make sure others don’t repeat the same mistakes that he made.

relife_13_16

This series really spoke levels to me. The way the series deals with serious topics from pressure to have sex to bullying. All topics are dealt with in a mature fashion that you rarely see shows deal with the issues this way. The humor is on point and doesn’t distract you from the concept of the show. The biggest thing about the show was the twist of why characters are involved with the program.

Overall I give this series 5/5 youth pills

Netoge no Yome wa Onnanoko ja Nai to Omotta? (And you thought there is never a girl online?

Back in early 2000’s you always hear stories of guys falling in love with people in MMOs during the heyday of World of Warcraft. As friends we have always made jokes of these stories that the female avatar was always played by a stereotypical overweight troll who agreed to go out to get some rare items or just for lol.

5f1e9982-f112-4a40-9b00-177e869b5239

This is what I originally thought this series was going to be about . But this series based on the light novel of the same name written by Shibai Kineko that was released in the Spring this year is about a young teenager Hideki Nishimura who not only finds out his team online are real life girls but are also classmates from his school.

1462380731_1_4_f977cc0e1b3a1a300547e197d5f66ff4

Sounds very Haremeque so far but Hideki has become disillusioned about his life after asking a female player in the game only to discover that the player was a guy.

I think all of us can identify going on a first date or talking with a potential interest only to discover they weren’t what you were expecting.

tumblr_o5agkkourz1ul1i17o1_1280

The series is broken down to 2 arcs . The first is the introduction arc where the players meet up in person and the founding of their school gaming club and the Romance arc where Hideki comes to grips with falling in love with character’s wife who in the real world is delusional female fellow student with severe anxiety problems.

High points of the show : Animation is light and bubbly which makes the show an enjoyable watch with plenty of humorous moments.

images

Low points : The goal of the show was to help the love interest realize she isn’t married but nothing is resolved here besides the main character falling for her. I wished that she was able see reality for what is was . The main character asked her out , or spoke from the heart it had no emotional effect on her because she already believed they were together.

Final Thoughts : Lacks any emotional impact but still enjoyable 5/10 Boobies
