Time for a refresh.
Hi, my name is Michiel Veldhuis, which is Dutch, so most of you here probably don't know how to say that, so you can call me Mike.
I am an adult that is still a lot younger in the head.
I have ADD and PDD, I'd like to go into detail about it, but then I'd fill up too much space, so let's just stick with; It can be somewhat troublesome. For details, just google it.
I've been suffering from depression for quite a few years now and to keep my thoughts away from all the problems (not just my own, but all over the world as well) I try to keep myself busy with other things.
Therefor I have already watched a WHOLE LOT of anime by now and have recently also started reading manga, although I kind of hate reading, because I'm not too fast with that. (my eyes rush over the lines, so I think it said one thing, but then it turns out it didn't and I have to read it again... >_<)
Thinking about the manga's I've read or been reading so far (and even the ones I've browsed through to compare to anime) I wonder why they make up so much stuff and change it so often to make it into an anime. It surely doesn't always do it justice!
Don't get me wrong, motion is good! But Emotions are just as important, and in some cases it just doesn't make sense in the anime, when the manga does a better job at explaining why things are like that.
But when we're talking about who what when where how and why?
Here's some more clichés.
*If there's so many people born with 'weak body's', Japan must be quite full of very weak people...
*How the heck does your immune system work?! You're fine one moment and then you suddenly collapse/ faint because of... A fever?! And if 37 degrees Celsius is normal, 38 is 'a terrible fever'?! Sorry, but I've been out for dinner due to my (ex) girlfriends grandmothers birthday with 40,5 degrees fever. Yeah, a bit more and I could die, but heck, that birthday was important, so fudge it!
*How come if you're so ill, it's over the next day?!
*The overall image of Japanese people is that they're a bunch of prudes; Why are schoolgirls always fumbling each others breasts?!
*How do pantyshots get a person nosebleeds when the length of the skirts are almost a guarantee for an average of 45 pantyshots a day?
*What's up with those nosebleeds anyway?
*How does shouting the name of your skill or ability affect it's performance?
*Why do magical girls need transformation scenes that consume too much time and get annoying after you've seen it 3 episodes... Unless you're a lolicon?
*Why do I always get mislead by the ages of the characters? Kids that look and behave like they're 17/18 turn out to be 14/15 and the other way around? Why does that guys mother look like his girlfriend, why does that girls father look like her grandfather?
*why do I keep worrying about such details when anime is a work of fiction and all I need to do is sit back an enjoy the show?
Oh right, I don't. Not when I'm watching it. It's just after seeing so many anime you start to wonder how many people actually bother to try and be original.
Oh, just one more for the heck of it;
To the shows that just go on and on and ON!
People DO actually have a limit to how strong they can become and most people, when they are dead, they tend to STAY dead!
If you make that main character of yours so incredibly strong that it goes beyond anybodies imagination, what justice are you doing to those enemies he/she fought at the very beginning of the story? If they were too strong then, how weak are they actually now? It's pretty sad when you think about it, you know?
