Hello! sothis is redesigning the anime-planet site, and plans to roll out an awesome new site design in July, we believe. The blog feature is not part of the new design, and it is going away. More information about this here: Announcement: the blog feature is being deprecated topic link. (Be sure to check out the new site design when it goes live!)
The blog pages are going away, and will be gone when the site redesign goes live. Your blog here will be removed from the site.
So, if want to keep the information posted in your blog, you will need to copy this information someplace else on the site. If you have any questions how or where to do this, please feel free to get back to me, and I will try to assist.
I am ready to counter any argument you may have. *Assumes Gendo pose.*
Oh, and I sent you a friend request. Feel free to deny it. (But it will take years to mend my broken ego. ^.^ I'm kidding.)
Because I am a grade A hypocrite, I will spam up your inbox with this response to your second comment on my "BTOOOM!" review page.
Hey, I don't mind if your "straight-forward"--that's what you want to be when posing an argument, right? As for the "rude" part, you were not NEARLY as rude as you probably think you were (and as I originally thought you were... yeah... -.-''), and I like that you actually put forth the effort to start an argument and give me some constructive criticism!
Okay, you backed me into a corner with that "rip-off" point. Yes, I was acting really haughty when I made that comment, and I was, for lack of a better idiom, riding a high horse. Oh, but since I'm not a huge fan of losing, I'll bring the "BTOOOM!" manga into this: The "Battle Royale" similarities are basically lampshaded in it: In a description/in-story advertisement for the game, BTOOOM! is remarked as having a "Battle Royale"-style plot. (I would find the actual quote, and I can, if you want me to.)
I'm not going to elaborate too much on the Sakamoto/Light similarities, because (as we both realize) it's irrelevant to the story as a whole. And, while I may have been thinking of the "rip-off" idea as I wrote it, that wasn't my intention.
I read this after writing my apology, and now when I look at your comment, I just feel like a jerk. (And please don't let this make YOU feel like a jerk. There isn't enough jerkiness to go around.)
Gee, now that I look at the quality of my response, I have only one thing to say: "You win this time."
I was rethinking about your comment, and I immediately remembered what I wrote in response to you:
But your comment about ElyOfIce was uncalled for. She's my friend, and I didn't brainwash her to not watch this show. When I do is the only time you can call her out for liking my review.
I deeply regret writing this. I reread your comment and not once were you a jerk to her. While I stand behind the rest of my review, I went overboard on this aspect. I apologize for that.
I think it's about time I respond to your response to my "BTOOOM!" review.
Yes, I admit that my review is a rant. I have a habit of making my negative reviews into rants (just look at my "11eyes" review [shameless promotion!]--it makes this rant look tame).
I apologize to Sakamoto right now. I am now made aware that the poor young man had no reason to not recognize that bomb. He probably thought it was a papaya, or maybe a hairbrush. I kid, I kid. Yes, I had a good reason to recognize that bomb, but he did, too. As a self-proclaimed BTEXPERT, he should have seen that time bomb about 396501 times before. Now, real-life is MUCH different from a RPG, certainly, but his genuine confusion was almost laughable. Obviously, you did not laugh, so that laughableness was my humble opinion.
What's next... ah. Ah, yes. That rip-off comment. Now, I'll tell you an important thing about that well-worn point--we (being myself and the others who use it) don't always mean it to be 100% true. I use it more as a substitute for an "unoriginal plot" comment. I can see why you would misunderstand it (I actually would be more confused if you actually understood it the way I intended for it to sound), and I'm sorry for using it. It DOES sound incredibly stupid.
Your continuation really does nothing to help your argument. I am no expert in formulating essays, but your response is rather petty. I must go apologize to my parents for being a rip-off. That being said, I understand the point you're trying to make, and I do agree.
... Yes, "inspiration and themes" is a better (and kinder) way to describe the relationship between "BTOOOM!" and "Battle Royale."
And I don't care how "annoying as hell" it is, but the main character does look like Yagami Light. I'm sorry. It's a pointless, stupid comment, and I feel less intelligent just knowing that I wrote that, but it's true. And I regret nothing.
Well, there you go. In short, if you don't like my writing style (and I won't blame you at all--even I sometimes look at something I wrote and want to punch myself in the face), you don't like my writing style. Don't read what I write, don't associate with me, heck, spam up my page with "F*CK YOU" comments, WHATEVER. But your comment about ElyOfIce was uncalled for. She's my friend, and I didn't brainwash her to not watch this show. When I do is the only time you can call her out for liking my review.
I'm done with my own little admiration letter/hate mail/rant.
Oh, but please don't spam up my page with "F*CK YOU" comments, if you can help it.
