I don’t think FLAG is all that
It’s already up to the 22nd episode of Ergo Proxy; the final episode would have aired tomorrow. It has already been three weeks since my last Ergo Proxy update: some frequent visitors (Danchik and others) have asked what happened to me. Aside from the pressures of school (think about it, we had classes from Monday to Sunday), I also am disillusioned when it comes to Ergo Proxy. I seriously believe that the show has gone to hell. It doesn’t even have what I consider to be plot; its plot is just a string of extremely loose and disparate events seemingly connected with one another. I know pretense and falsities abound sci-fi shows and series, but this was just pushing it. I like Ghost in the Shell in that although it was also covered with pretense, it still had a plot coherent enough to tell where the story is going towards. In Ergo Proxy, I don’t know, but I don’t see the story going anywhere. I’ll probably post about it in the near future, but don’t be surprised if I post about the last episode first before I do so with the other episodes. The shock value in doing so will probably be more, so I’m going to do that if I can: I will report about the mammalian respiratory system within this week, and that’s why it’s going to be a tall order (posting about the final episode of Ergo Proxy).
On other things, FLAG has been subbed already. With its subbing, my interest in it waned. The reason was that I loved FLAG simply because of the mystery enshrouding it, simply because it wasn’t subbed. Now that it has become popular, it lost its power over me â€“ mainly for reasons that are personal and are quirks of my character: for one, I like .wmv as a format (don’t ask me why, I don’t know), and I love rare finds. FLAG, as posted somewhereâ„¢ was only one of its kind alongside a chapter of Erementar Gerad, and that was only a trailer. There were no raws, let alone subbed episodes. Now that it has lost its mystery, I don’t think I’m too interested in it; I also have to personally pray that Cruzz keeps on making his scripts and wao editing them, because I think that it would be faster than Shinsen-subs’ intermittent subbing (and more efficient, too). (By the way, chiketto means ticket. It’s an Engrish form.)
I tried not posting anything because I tried to make my posts more academic. But that would just make me seem so uptight; I personally believe that my posts are academic enough as they are, and because I’m setting out to enjoy myself, not to be subservient to the demands of my readers (although I’m very thankful that there are people who do read this blog of mine), I’ll just post about anything and everything in anime. I can just try posting intelligently from my gut instincts, and from that point the reader can judge how intelligent or dumb it is. XD
That’s all for now â€“ expect more posts when I can think of something else to post about. (By the way, I’m sorry if my categories don’t seem to be organized. I guess that would reflect my character.)
