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!

Yokai Wednesdays

Konichiwa, everyone! It’s Wednesday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at some more fascinating yokai. Now, let’s go on a journey to the “Land of the Rising Sun”!

  •  Ungaikyo is less of a creature and more of a physical object. It’s essentially a haunted mirror that can show the presence of unseen monsters and demons. Humans have used this mirror to trap spirits, and the object itself can manipulate appearances. Supposedly, on the 15th day of the 8th month in the old lunar calendar, special water was used on a crystal dish to reflect the light of a full moon. If the same water is used to paint a yokai’s image on a mirror, the spirit will inhibit the object.

  • Tengu tsubute is a phenomenon that’s caused by the mischievous Tengu. The event causes random rocks to fall the sky. The rocks range from small pebbles, to gigantic boulders. People who are struck by said rocks will succumb to illness, and even those in the presence of the phenomena will be struck with misfortune.

Asher’s Favorite Animations (Special Post)

Hello everyone, and welcome to an extremely special post! I have been a major fan of Web Animation for my entire life, and have finally decided to share some with you. Most of these animations will be found on Youtube, with the exception of one. Now, let’s be blown away by these fantastic works of art!

  • Kaizo Trap by Guy Collins 2015 Music by Leslie Wai 

I just found out about this video yesterday, and my god, it’s fantastic! The animation is essentially a loving homage to the classic rage games. If you’ve ever played “I Wanna Be The Guy” or “Cat Mario”, you’ll know exactly what’s in store for you. The movie is about a couple that gets sucked into the most punishing Video Game ever made. The boy gets kidnapped, and its up to the girl to save him. The animation is incredibly fluid, and the pulse-pounding Dubstep soundtrack really adds tension. I’m not going to ruin the ending, but let me just say, it’ll leave you in tears!

 

  • Me! Me! Me! by Teddyloid (feat. daoko) 2014 Warning! This Music Video contains nudity, blood, gore, and adult themes.  

Me! Me! Me! is a mind-blowing music video by Japanese DJ, Teddyloid. It tells the story of a Hikikomori Otaku or “shut in”. He’s visited by a harem of busty anime chicks, and crazy stuff starts to happen. The music does a fantastic job of portraying suspense and anxiety. The piece is extremely catchy, and you’ll be humming the tune for hours on end. This video, however, isn’t for kids, as the subject matter and content is very adult.

  • MOO! by Cyriak Harris 2007 HD Version 2015 Genre: Comedic Animation

I feel like I’ve done Cyriak a major disservice for never mentioning him in any of my posts. In was you don’t know, Cyriak is a British animator whose style is unlike anything you’ve ever seen. It’s usually a mix of crazy fractals and shapes with some hints of surrealism. I absolutely adore his wacky style, and binge his animations frequently. This animation, is about a war between aliens and cows. The artwork gets extremely bizarre, and it’s accompanied by an even stranger soundtrack. I highly recommend this video, as it will get you a first look at Cyriak’s humor and style.

 

Yokai Wednesdays (Every Other Wednesday)

Konichiwa, everyone! It’s Wednesday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at some more fascinating yokai. Now, let’s go on a journey to the “Land of the Rising Sun”!

  • Hainu are canine-like creatures of Japanese folklore. They are nearly identical to the common dog, however they sport a beautiful pair of black wings. The yokai can be found in plains, forests, and human inhabited areas. People who approach this yokai must do it with caution, as they are quite ferocious. Fortunately, if you manage to tame a Hainu, it will become an incredibly loyal companion.

  • Nasu-baba is an extremely bizarre creature of Japanese mythology. Its name translates from Japanese to “Eggplant Hag”. It’s depicted as an old woman with dark purple skin and a toothy grin. She lives on Mount Hiei, and wanders around dark rooms. Despite her frightening appearance, she is actually quite useful, ringing the temple’s bell in times of disaster.
