Lain

So I’ve started to watch this “Lain” anime. I’ve seen the first three episodes (layers) – of thirteen – tonight and I must say that it’s pretty weird…

I like it!

When the infrared beam searched his palate and her face got splashed with blood, I knew this was a series of my liking.

Death Note

So I’ve finally watched the entire Death Note anime…

It was good!

Probably one of the most exciting animes I’ve seen actually… not as good as Elfen Lied though. There’s no other Elfen Lied. ^^ Elfen Lied is the queen of animes.

Well, it’s about this guy Light who one day finds a note book (dropped by a death god) and he finds out that he can kill people simply by visualizing their face while writing there name down in it. He wants to create a new world free from evil and therefore he starts to eliminate all criminals that get exposed in media.

He works under the alias “Kira” and when some people – like the police force – wants him arrested for mass-murder, others starts to consider him as a savior. One of the central characters in this series is the mysterious “L” who leads the investigation with the police force, an extremely smart guy with an insatiable hunger for sweets. ^^

Well, I won’t tell you what happens ’cause I think you should watch the anime instead. The narrative was quite complex from time to time, so make sure you’re alert while watching it. And if you’re sensitive I can assure you that this was none of those blood bath animes, even though an extreme amount of people get murdered. It’s a well-made, pretty and exciting anime that makes you ponder about righteousness.

And since I’ve finally watched the anime, I can allow myself to watch the movies. I look forward to that!

I always watch something on the computer before I go to sleep. It’s my “sleeping pill”. (Yes, I have a computer at the bed… It’s very practical!)

Anyway, I’ve finally watched the entire collection of Star Trek Voyager Seasons. *sob* I always feel a little bit lost when I must say good bye to the characters I’ve followed for so long. Bye bye, Seven! I’ll miss you… <3

A friend of mine once made me watch the two first episodes of the anime “Death Note”. Before that I had read some of the manga but never really got hooked. The anime on the other hand made the trick; very well done, great graphics, dialogues and scenes. It has all potentials.

So I’ve finally provided myself with the following episodes and will continue my journey into the world of Death gods and righteous murders. For those of you who haven’t heard about “Death Note”: A death god decides to drop a magical book in the realm of humans. A boy named Light finds it and figure out that he can kill any person on earth within 40 seconds, just by writing its name in the note book. He decides to eliminate all criminals and create a better world.

Hm… is murder justified when it comes to save the world from evil?

What would you do if you found the Death Note…?

Tribute to Elfen Lied

When you’re born in the 80s and work with media, it sometimes feels like you’ve already seen it all. It gets harder and harder to get this “wow”-feeling while watching movies or playing games. Nothing scares you anymore. I know there are a lot of discussions concerning media’s affect on children and it often become a sensitive issue. Personally, I don’t think that violent media makes us to bad persons. It might expand our tolerance limits – in the context of media – but I’m convinced of that a clear majority have no problems with separating fiction from real life.

Myself, I’ve got picky when it comes to movies, series and games. I’m quite easy to entertain otherwise though… I can watch birds for hours or get excited by a silly air balloon, but when it comes to media – I’m unfortunately not that easy to entertain any longer.

That’s why I really appreciate these moments when I experience something new that touches my heart in some way. It happens so rarely.

One of this great moments when I got totally immersed with media, was when I watched the Elfen Lied anime.

The manga genre is often quite controversial and hard for western people to embrace. Elfen Lied brings these controversial issues to its peak. I would lie if I would say that it was all a pleasant experience. It’s really not about that. Some elements were really hard to watch, but they had their purpose. The brilliant and artistic mixture of gore, Japanese humor and cute manga characters brought an overall experience that blew me away.

I really love it and I want to spread the word: see it!

Therefore, I’ve made a “Tribute to Elfen Lied movie”. Warning: The movie contains violent and scary scenes and should not be seen by sensitive people.
