Dark hues of violet and blue

After coming from a difficult exam, wondering what to do with my life, I walked around our dormitory’s supposed parking-space and watched the starless night sky in the heavens juxtapose and seemingly absorb a mountain of leaves hanging from a tree. The sky was a dark hue of violet and blue, and its soft contrast with the now-black leaves forming seemingly a mountain placated my quiet self that was in turmoil within. I guess that no matter how I told my parents that I wanted to shift, deep inside I was still the same: I was still turmoiled; my thoughts were constantly in upheaval, and I was just like Shuu (of Honey and Clover): I was drifting. Unlike Takemoto, however, I couldn’t even try searching for myself, so I just looked at the night sky and hoped that the inner peace that it gave me would last more than an evanescence or something fleeting.

On other lighter things, it’s quite sad that I’m met with animosity in AnimeSuki’s thread on Ergo Proxy where I vehemently stood my ground in thinking that Honey and Clover (all in all) is better than Ergo Proxy. Someone even tried to point out that my statements of belief didn’t amount to much, and I agree, it didn’t. It was quite funny, however, when he himself was a victim of the crime that I supposedly committed, and that was the crime of redundancy. ‘Irregardless’ is a word that is non-existent in the English language (formal and general usage, anyway). It is considered a crime, because the suffix -less, and the prefix ir- denote something negative (and thus, redundant). That was quite fun, because I didn’t even try to start the fight. That was so cool. Despite all these things one would consider perhaps bad or unlucky, however, I was happy today: I, finally, after all this time, finally used a favorite hero of mine in DotA extremely well.

Still on other things, I never expected this, but I liked Air Gear a whole lot more than I expected. Sure, it is shallow and facile, but after watching ep7 and aside from thinking that IT HAS SISCON TOO (correct me if I’m wrong, but siscon is a term that applies to incestual love between brother and sister, right?), it sure is difficult for Ringo. Being in love with your brother is never an easy thing, because first, it isn’t condoned in society, and second, it just is weird.

    And having kids with your kin just isn’t worth it. You’re looking at retardation and/or 11 toes and fingers.

    Though… incest might not apply to those of adoptive origins. Couples in point: Asakura Jun’ichi and Nemu (DCFS), Asakura Yume and Otome and Sakurai Yoshiyuki (DCII), Urashima Keitaro and Kanako (Love Hina), etc.

    I love how you get all Honey and Clover style introspective and then say, “IT HAS SISCON TOO!” Beautiful.

    On a serious note, I can understand your sentiments about school; I often feel the same way. “What am I doing with my life?”, I wonder to myself. Sometimes I feel as if only doing my work during class time isn’t enough as I watch talented people move past.

    While reading the first lines of your post the song Starry Starry Night just came to mind…

    Anyway that’s why I don’t like posting at forums–there are lots of kids and know-it-alls who think that their fave series is the best anime there is. It is quite useless arguing points like that–they won’t admit they’re wrong anyway.

    Point them to my blog, and although I do like Ergo Proxy too, if they wish for it I will mangle Ergo Proxy the series to shreds if they dare say Honey and Clover is trash.

    Lastly, I do hope you pass all your exams. Study hard, and watch any anime you like later! =p And you’re from Ateneo right? I thougt I saw somebody post you study there…

    GOD. Listen to yourself. And so you think YOUR favourite anime is the best do you? This pisses me off. That sounded pretty much like what physics was doing in the EP thread.

    Be realistic people, no one is saying HnC is trash.. but pimping HnC in the EP thread? And just when people are feeling good about EP’s ending? That really doesnt sound right to me. :/

    I’m not here to compare between EP and HnC, neither am I arguing the case on whether HnC is better than EP.. but for God’s sake, STOP ignoring the preferences of others.

    I agree with Lost. You can take the bloggers account of events at face value(which will contain some bias no doubt) but if you were actually reading the EP thread there then you would understand where the forumite who was referenced in this blog post was coming from.

    Time and time again a certain someone has brought up Honey and Clover in that thread especially in the last few pages and I for one am not surprised that those wanting to discuss EP, got a little tired of that. So I think the animosity is justified and it’s not particularly like there was anything bad written, just most posters said in no uncertain terms to take it elsewhere. If you want to discuss those matters on a forum particularly one as strictly moderated as AS then kindly create a thread named “Ergo Proxy vs H&C” and post to your heart’s content.

    “PS: Can we move the Honey and Clover discussion to the relevant thread? I don’t feel like it has any connection to what we are discussing here, especially since the person who constantly brings it up doesn’t seem to want to duscuss Ergo Proxy at all.” EP. EP is mediocre. Doesn’t come near my top 20 etc…”

    ^ that is what was written when one of the posters got tired of the constant H&C posts. It’s not that bad. Sure there was slightly stronger stuff after but not that much worse.

    Most of your recent posts in the thread seemed to boil down to “H&C is the best. H&C > EP. EP is mediocre. Doesn’t come near my top 20 etc…”. It seemed, from the outside looking in, that you wanted to somehow hammer that opinion home with the number of times you were posting it.
    ————————————————————————————
    seems I wrote a little too much, oops. The above is a continuation of my previous ramblings

    Just imagine what it would be like if someone was doing the same thing in the H&C thread whilst you were discussing it with others. Wouldn’t you find it annoying?

    arkon, that certain someone is ME. This is just to let you know. It’s not only now that I’ve pissed that guy off – obtaining depth out of nothing more than pretense doesn’t really excite me. ^_^

    That one poster always gets tired of me. He must have ignored me already since before; we always diverged from one another’s beliefs, and that didn’t start only now. He likes to thinks his opinions matter, that his say rocks. Frankly, I can’t think of anything he should be proud of, when he’s like that and can’t even spell properly or use English well enough. Where’s the e-p0n0s there?

    Although if someone were to compare Ergo Proxy in the H&C thread, it would be FUN. I REALLY MEAN FUN. SERIOUSLY, SOMEONE PLEASE DO THAT. PLEASE.

    That would be my last post there for the time being. I do understand your points and what you’re driving at. But really, arkon, someone should try doing that over at the H&C thread.
