Whew. It's the beginning of Fall Anime Season, which means watching all the first episodes to sift out which series might be worth following. But this season seems to be extra full of crap so let me rant for a moment. I'll just go through all the titles in a row, starting at the awful and finishing with things I might actually watch.

Auugh teh Awful it burns )

More Awful was Made to Serve you )

Sparkly Bishounen are somehow also Awful whyyy )

From the terrible we segue into the senselessly violent )

From this point I actually managed to finish watching the complete episode. )

Series I will actually continue )

tl;dr: watch Coppelion.

Hello everybody,
as some of you might have already seen on yo, is this racist?there is - once again I must say - another theater production in a Berlin based german theater company where they use Blackface instead of Black actors!

Details under the cut... )

Yeah, so I walked past the ad for that piece of work on my way to uni last week and went WTF?

Look at that theatre director, so proud of his excuse: of course black actors can't play regular roles - it's not like they're regular people! - of course they can only play ~special~ *black* roles. But of course he doesn't want to put on so many of these, so he can't hire any black actors, as there wouldn't be enough work for them! So when he does need a good old-fashioned racist caricature (it's "traditional", don't you know?), of course it has to be played by a white actor in blackface! They totally had no alternative, don't you see?

*headdesk* *headdesk* *headdesk*

See also: I highly suspect that newspapers in the States don't feature kids in blackface in cheery holiday articles.

What is it with you Americans and credit cards? Do you do this on purpose to exclude everyone else, or are you just too stupid to notice that not everyone is like you? Do you just not give a shit?

AND 30STM WEBSITE, BLOODY SHUT UP ABOUT PRE-ORDERING ABL. YOU KNOW I WOULD DO IT IN A HEARTBEAT IF ONLY I COULD. ONE MORE POP-UP AND YOU'RE GETTING A BILL FOR A NEW KEYBOARD, BECAUSE THIS ONE WILL BE SMASHED TO BITS.

There's not even a release date in sight in Germany. Fucking hell. This is the capital of the world's 3rd largest economy, why does it feel like the middle of nowhere?

GRRRR.

So. Graduation. And Abiball.

It would've been a good night. The food was good, the air tasted of freedom and all my friends were there. It would've been a good night, if it wasn't for the fucking music. I endured two fucking hours of UTTER CRAP (hip hop & techno of the worst kind). Until - finally! - Edge of the Earth started playing.

...only to be immediately shouted down.
