Is watching harem anime bad for you?
School has begun to be a chore (but it always is, right?). As I’ve iterated before, my irregular updates may just become even more intermittent, but I will try my very best to keep on writing (and, hopefully, writing well) about the different facets of and issues concerning anime.
With that said, I procured all the twelve episodes of Tsuyokiss ~ CoolxSweet yesterday, and it is sad to note that no one group has subbed this series in its entirety. A collaboration between Serin and AnimeU was done with its first episode; Serin did the second and third ones; and Your-Mom did the rest of the episodes. There was a person who was both a member of Serin and Your-Mom, I think, and he was the one who relegated the job to be done by Your-Mom because Serin was incapacitated at that time as its translators ran off and there was some INTERNET DORAMA between that said person and other AnimeU fansub members. In short, it was a mess as an anime and as a subbing project, but the anime still interests me to no end as a lot of people, in their ‘expected shows for fall,’ wrote this as among the anime they were going to watch.
Obviously, seeing its initial popularity, I decided to wait for its first episode and watch it. This more or less took a long time in subbing (see reasons above, I guess) and it may have been that the appeal to watching it may have been degraded because of the time it took for the first episode to appear subbed. Aside from this, however, a lot of intelligent bloggers who understood and were cognizant of the Japanese language either disliked or downright hated this show. I don’t blame them: now that I’ve seen the first two episodes, I would really agree that it’s downright bullshit right now. I have a weakness for harem anime, however. Of course I desire for and watch more intelligent anime than harems, but really, who doesn’t want to be in a position like those guys? Anime is escapism; to relieve one’s self from the troubles of the real world one watches implausibilities and impossibilities in anime because it is quor he can have fun. I’d definitely want to be surrounded by lithe and hot girls like in the different harem anime I’ve watched. (Quor means where, by the way; I just discovered it from material I’ve read, and I just wanted to use it for the sake of playing with it, trying to use it as a nonce. It’s fun to play with words.)
People may accuse others who do watch these kind of things to be dumb and stupid, and I admit I am both of those things (dumb and stupid), but really, if you want seriousness and tedium to pervade and permeate you, doesn’t real life seem serious enough (with the assignments, schoolwork, project, shitty teachers, and all)? You can also watch other anime, too.
PS. There are no pictures for today as I’m rushing to school. I promise I’ll try to make it up to the reader in my next post. Have a good day, minna.
