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.

HOWEVER...

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.

You're welcome. I'm really glad you enjoyed the recs, I was actually super worried. It wasn't hard picking them out, but I don't normally make recommendations so I was terrified you might just hate them all, haha. And yes, Mushishi is definitely a show that's more enjoyable if you don't marathon it.
