What’s up guys?
(Gintama Second ED Theme, “Mr. Raindrop” by Amplified)
It’s been a while since I posted, so I thought I’d pop out of my turtle shell. Like Dazz said, although it’s summer break, were submerged into different things. Part time jobs, and other activities. I just “finished” a very long and tiring wedding week, and now my feet are covered with blisters, so it’s hard to wear any normal kind of shoes =_=…
That’s not the helpless part however. My computer is pretty much resting in peace, while I feel… hmm… handicapped?! Not because I don’t have access to anything anymore (because I abducted my dad’s computer :D).. but because I don’t have Photoshop :(.. I have these occasional urges to edit photos.. and then I realize I can’t.. Siiiiigh.. I need to get that junk fixed..
(Gintama 17th ED, “Samurai Heart – Some Like it Hot” by SPYAIR ((one of my all time favorite songs :D))..Notice how “some like it hot” sounds like “samurai heart” in “engrish”.. They purposely used it)
Otherwise, I am really really into the anime “Gintama” these days. One word : UNDERRATED! I have neglected all the dramas I had piled up, and just can’t stop watching it. I hardly get to watch a lot because of work, but still.. it’s so funny! I can’t remember the last time I laughed so much watching something. The humor is just awesssoooomeee.. Although at times there’s this boyish humor in it, there’s also the times when it’s just plain hilarious to anyone. The title means “Silver Soul“.. Soul likes that 8D.. But it’s also a play on words.. “Kintama” for instance, means “Balls of gold”.. ROFLOL.. So you can see how it’s a Shounen (male genre) anime. The words aren’t far off when it comes to pronunciation. They even joked around in one of the episodes, that the title was used in order to make it troublesome for the girls.
I must admit though, the English sub I found is not as precise as it should be. When I translate it on my own as I am watching it, I tend to do it differently sometimes. To be very honest, it sounds more correct, and even more funny that way. So I hope that people could “understand it that way” as well. I hope the sub had been what they exactly said, instead of the “slang” equivalent of it from English.
Moving on…. I have been putting off this anime because I read online that it’s “episodic“, as in “a new story every episode”, but in reality it isn’t quite like that. Yes, the episodes usually contain a new happening every time, but there is a coherence in the flow of these. There are things you find out about the characters or the story specifically, which you would only be able to find in some episodes. By the flow, I mean that you’re introduced to new things, and you would have needed to have seen the previous episodes to know what’s going on ahead.
Anyway, I seriously recommend this anime if you like the “big four” (One Piece, Naruto, Bleach, Dragon Ball). You will love it! Trust me. I was somehow expecting the main character to be a bit…. stupid? I have no clue why. Maybe because I knew it was a comedic anime. Still, the main character is really cool, haha. Not to mention the action scenes, they’re quite nice as well. I mean it’s a samurai anime after all! Doesn’t get cooler than that! So! Conclusion: Worth checking out, Soul recommends!
I seriously died laughing after watching this clip:
Hope the post isn’t too confusing! Was really tired after work x_x..
I’ll edit it once I’m more awake xD..
