Anime vs Movies
Posted by Yamane Ishi on October 14, 2008
I don’t know, maybe it’s just me, but the more new movies come out the less I am interested in them. I fact the only ones I seem to be interested in lately are ether comic book or video game related, there that or have a deep si-fi or a wild fantasy theme to them. I think that this is a product of watching Anime. I mean how many movies can compare. Most new movies just seem to be the same old drivel wrapped in a new package. Now granted there is probably not an Anime out there that doesn’t have elements from other ones in it but they seem to keep the story and setting fresh. The only complaint that I can think of about a lot of Anime is that they have a moral that they seek to drive into your head with a fifty pound sledge. Kinda like the hole pacifism theme in Mobile Suit Gundam Wing or the fact that the crew of the Nadesico seemed to have a problem once them found out that there where fighting humans even though those very same humans had no problem fighting them. That and those damn Lacus Cline songs. Anime just does a better job of diverting my attention away from the mind numbing boredom of reality.
