Hmm...how to describe GATE. Basically, it's how many of us wish we could enter a fantasy world...armed to the teeth with modern weapons so we can just shoot the son of a bitch and hear the lamentations of their women. There's more to it than that, and despite some pretty glaring flaws, I found it to be pretty entertaining. Still, for the full analysis, check out the review, if you want to know what I'm really talking about. Also, a goth loli demigoddess who gets off on the pain, suffering, and death of her enemies! Enjoy!
In modern Japan, a gate suddenly appears in down town Ginza, and suddenly bursting forth from it...invaders! But not, your typical super powered alien invaders with science so advanced as to be indistinguishable from magic, running roughshod over everyone and everything, racking up a fucking body count so high that your average mujahid gets cock envy, until finally some plucky kid in a biotechnic robot suit does what professional soldiers cannot, and beats them back, oh no. No, instead, the doom that befalls us this time are...Romans. Yup, Romans. Needless to say, after the initial shock and awe wears off, with a few hundred people dead, the swat teams and SDF, with modern weapons and modern military tactics turn them back relatively easily. Still, that leaves the question of just what the fuck the gate is, why it appeared, the fuck were the people on the other side thinking attacking without intel or a plan, and so on and so forth. Aside from the international repercussions of a dimensional incursion, it's up to what amounts to Japan's armed forces, the SDF, to head to the other side and deal with whatever is there.
Hmm...Transformers: Devastation. We've always wanted a G1 sytle game on a current platform. Correction: A GOOD G1 style game. I suppose it was too much to hope for that High Moon would be tapped for it, as this almost gets into the area of good, but with some major flaws, it falls short of the G1 game we always wanted. Why not check it out in the review for the more indepth report?
Cybertronian planet cyberforming machines have erupted under the city, killing thousands, and causing untold destruction. In its wake fly in a plague of Insecticons, but not the ones who have pledged their loyalty to Megatron. A team of Autobots; Bumblebee, Wheeljack, Sideswipe, Grimlock, and Optimus Prime rush towards the scene, working to evacuate what remains of the humans and stop whatever it is the Decepticons are doing...only to find Megatron and his army as confused as they are. Though whatever it is, Megatron wants it, and if he wants it, it's a damn site sure that those who fight for freedom of all sentient species had do their utmost to make sure he doesn't get it. Can either side survive...the Devastation?
A very Merry Christmas to you all! For a bit of a present, here's a review of the anime Shimoneta: A Boring World Where the Concept of Dirty Jokes Doesn't Exist. While entertaining, it really needed some serious work. Check out more of what I thought of it in the review proper. As always, have fun and enjoy!
Matsuki Miyu, rest well. We'll see you when we get there.
So, basically 1984 the crank-anime where Goldstein is a Japanese highschool girl with big tits who has sex joke tourette syndrome, runs around wearing a set of panties on her head, and a sheet over her body for a disguise. Oh, what Japan hath wrought this time. Let's see where this one takes us.
