introspective

Full response to Rah Xephon

Non-spoily.

RahXephon redefines many parts of anime genre. It has amazing characters and the mecha are rather interesting and not your usual crash-and-bash toys. And, a majority of the conflicts take place within the characters themselves and not with the mecha, which made it rather engrossing. You can only care so much about what happens to a machine. But the characters?

Also, whenever Sou-chan stops smiling; fear. And no, I'm not talking about THAT Smiling Sou-chan.

Over all, it's weird, fucked up, and has more twists than even Infinite Ryvius (which I was sure took the cake on plot/character twists). I really enjoyed all of it, and I hope that it is successful when it makes it to the US. I know it's been liscenced, and there's talk of putting it on that supposed Anime Cable Channel. And when it's released here, I'm getting it. And there's a movie in production too! Man, I can't wait. Must see more!! Though the ending, after the fact, left me VERY satisfied.

Grumpy. Hurting.

I'm in a lot of pain right now. Big nasty physical pain. And I can't go get pain killers, because that requires going up front, and my mom is up and I don't want her to know I'm in pain. ... ... But I don't care throwing it at all of you? Apparently not.

Screw it. I suck. I can't do anything. Don't ask why I'm saying this, I just am. It could be the pain. It could be the fact that, because of the pain, I can't sleep. It could be because I'm going to have to help my mother host my cousin's graduation party, when I would rather walk on needles than host a party for these members of the family. I can't stand it. And the fact that I feel like I'm going to be ill all over my keyboard certainly isn't helping. Blarg.
