The Craziest Music Video I’ve Ever Seen (Watch at your own risk!)

Pon Pon Pon by Kyary Pamyu Pamyu Released: July 16th, 2011 Genres: Electropop, dance-pop, J-pop Produced by Yasutaka Nakata

How to even start this review! If you think you’ve seen crazy videos, think again! This video appeared on Youtube in July of 2011, and quickly became a viral hit. It now stands at a whopping 138,793,808 views, and still continues to confuse and weird out people. I’m going to try to keep this as spoiler-free as possible, because you have to experience it blind. Let’s just say, it contains a bunch of random items, including multiple eyeballs. Sylvie Paula Paula, a character from King of Fighters, looks extremely similar to Kyary, and it might have been an influence on her creation. The song is also annoyingly catchy, so don’t blame me if it gets stuck in your head for weeks afterwards. Now, dive into the crazy world of Japanese music videos. I’d love to hear what you guys think of the video in the comments’ section below.

Asher’s Favorites (Webtoons Edition Part 2)

Hello everyone, and welcome to part 2 of my Webtoons recommendations. I really enjoyed doing the first part, and I hope that some of you checked them out. Now, let’s start part 2!

  • Carl by Hussein Traboulsi Genres: Comedy, Science Fiction, Heartwarming, Steampunk  Started: November 5th, 2017 Total Episodes: 77 Updates every Monday and Tuesday 

Carl is a very fascinating comic that I fell in love with right away. It’s about a robot psychiatrist that becomes sentient, and tries to help people out by expressing his feelings. His creator is worried about this, and tries to keep it under wraps. Unfortunately, his arch enemy finds out, and you are taken on a comedic adventure with robots, augmented humans, and crazy characters. I highly recommend this comic to everybody, and the characters will keep you reading to the end. Final Verdict 9/10 (A robotic hell of a good time!)

  • Boyfriend of the Dead by Ushio Genres: Comedy, Romance, Action, Zombies, Apocalyptic  Started: July 13th, 2017 Total Episodes: 105 Updates Every Tuesday and Friday

This is a fantastic and comedic take on the Zombie Horror genre. The world is ending, and zombies are everywhere. However, unlike other zombie stories, these creatures have kept their intelligence. Unfortunately, every time they speak, it comes out in growls. The comic focuses on one zombie that finds a girl surviving in the chaotic climate. We are then met with an amazing adventure of comedic proportions as the zombie tries to communicate and befriend the girl. If you love comedy, I guarantee that you’ll love this story. Final Verdict 9.9/10 (My first experience with webtoons and an amazing one at that!)

 

 

 

  • Sweet Home by Youngchan Hwang and Carnby Kim Genres: Horror, Tragedy, Mature, Despair, Psychological, Monsters  Started: January 14th, 2018 Total Episodes: 37 Updates Every Monday

Here we have an absolutely terrifying tale from the creators of Bastard. This comic is highly disturbing, and therefore recommended for mature audiences only. It’s about an anti-social high school student that has to move houses due to spoiler-heavy circumstances. Not only is this one of the best stories I’ve read in a while, but, it also is one of the best drawn. Final Verdict 10/10 (A goddamn horror masterpiece!)

More Fascinating TV Tropes (Every Other Saturday)

Hello everyone! I’m finally back from vacation! A post on that will be made in the near future, so be ready for it! It’s time for us to once again look at some more awesome tropes. This will be done randomly, so that each entry is unpredictable. Now, let’s begin!

 

  • WTH, Costuming Department?: This hilarious trope deals with questionable taste of the fashion department in films and other media. What starts as a cool concept in theory, soon deteriorates into pure cringeyness. It makes matters worse if the creator was being totally serious. Some examples include; Batman & Robin’s “bat nipples”, and Astaroth’s costume in Soul Calibur 3.

  • Gory Deadly Overkill Title of Fatal Death: This trope occurs when Horror movie titles try to be more edgy. This can involve stringing together several scary words. Unfortunately, this doesn’t emphasize terror, but disgust or confusion. Some titles include; Demented Death Farm Massacre, Johnny Sunshine Maximum Violence, Lesbian Zombies from Outer Space, and Violent Shit.

TV Tropes Randomness (Every Other Saturday)

Hello everyone, and welcome to a brand new topic! Every Other Saturday, I will be searching for some random tropes, and describing them in a spoiler-free way. In case you didn’t know, a trope can be defined as an expression or overused cliche found in movies and other media. TV Tropes.org categorizes thousands of these expressions and cliches throughout the world of media. This ranges from certain character quirks, to the series as a whole. I find it to be quite enjoyable, and I hope you guys will too. Now, let’s begin!

  • Depraved Kids’ Show Host: This trope deals with the stereotypical “Kiddie Show” host. They always appear to be happy, and love making little kids smile. Unfortunately, this is all a disguise, and backstage is where they let their true colors shine. They can be addicted to drugs, have lecherous behavior, be sex offenders, swear enough to make sailors transform into prudes, and makes everybody’s life around him a “living hell”. This trope is frequently found in The Simpsons with Krusty the Clown. Krusty can be found backstage yelling at everyone, and seems to be addicted to everything. It can also be found with Pierre from Tim And Eric Awesome Show Great Job. Pierre loves to dance with kids, and seems to be fascinated with the audience’s dads.

  • Technology Porn: This trope is used in almost every Science Fiction film ever created. The trope occurs whenever a sequence in media goes into great depth showing the inner workings of gadgets and other mechanical tools. This trope always appears in the Iron Man films when Tony Stark “suits up”. It also can be found in numerous parts of 2001: A Space Odyssey. One of my favorite examples of this trope is the use of it in Blade Runner.

  • Warning! This Will Make You Hungry!! Food Porn: This trope is pretty self-explanitory, but can be divided into two definitions. The first is food that’s usually used to symbolize something suggestive. The second is food that’s portrayed in such a manner that the audience salivates and experiences lust as if they were watching porn. I adore this trope, and I always am eager to see what people think of next. One of my favorite examples of this trope is in the film, Chef. Chef’s use of food is so important in the movie, that it actually becomes a main plot point. Then, we get to its use in Anime, and I can’t think of a better example than Shokugeki No Soma (Food Wars). This Anime was created by a Hentai artist, and the use of food in the series applies to both definitions. People literally have “Foodgasms” so intense that their clothes will occasionally rip off! The food in this show is so jaw-dropping, that even the most simple dishes, like scrambled eggs look like it should be framed in the Louvre! As an added bonus, Japanese chef Yuki Morisaki, adds real recipes from the series that you can replicate in each Manga volume!
