Okay, finals for winter are out of the way.  I did much better on the written final than I did on the hands on final, in part because the hands-on final had so many more parts to it. My bad score on it just frustrates me because I knew exactly what they wanted me to do on the hands on, but I freaked out on the time crunch and didn't have enough time to troubleshoot.  And they set it up so you would probably have to troubleshoot.

At least I managed to get all the books I'll need for my spring classes, and now I have time to work on stuff.  I'm practicing a new method of outlining my stories.  Going to use it on a fanfic project first, then if it works for me I'll try it on one of my novels.  I want to see if it helps me keep track of things better.

What have you been watcing/reading/playing lately?

I just finished Sailor Moon R today and yesterday Legends of the Dark King (Fist of the North Star spinoff revolving around Raoh). If I didn't state it already I've also recently finished the Star Wars prequel trilogy.

I am going to finish up the original Mobile Gundam Suit next week and The Maxx (cartooon based on comics). I will resume Jackie Chan Adventures, Courage the Cowardly Dog, Zatchbell, and start on Sailor Moon S next month (in no particular order).

How much do you recall of YYH?

I'm in the mood to discuss it with fans but sadly the fandom is FUCKING DEAD. All YYH forums don't get new posts and the most active threads on the series from anime forums (such as Gaia) are dormant.

If you still remember enough I'd LOVE to discuss the series mythos, style,etc.

I'd have to ask right now though-do you think the musical score for YYH is FUCKING WEAK for something thats considered a masterpiece and so revolutionary? Its definitely above average of your generic aniime TV series but the tracks as a whole are forgettable and at times feels very BUDGETY (esp. in the Sensui arc).  I feel this moreso after having recently watched series that have masterpiece scores such as Cowboy Bebop and Fist of the North Star.

I can search for tracks on Youtube if you'd like. But this is the primary thing that prevents me from giving it a PERFECT 10 I gave other classics on IMDB.

I mean Rose of Versailles is from the 70s but its orchestra is so BEAUTIFULLLY done it can easily be mistaken for real classical music. The original Gundama nd Ashita no Joe are also old but at least the music matches the time period they were from and they are even arguably VERY GOOD OST even by today's standards.

YYH's does not sound like its from the 90s in style more like an old anime from the 70s and 80s. I mean we got freaking mixed orchestra of rock, choir, and such in Saint Seiya!Granted SS is really one of the few series that have such a masterful score even outside of a medium its be rated as really good by people who don't even know what anime is.

But thats my #1 criticism for YYH. Its such a masterpiece in almost every other way that its very difficult to believe they couldn't get someone like Seiji Yokohama to do the score (moreso when you consider the manga was easily the most popular in its time right after Dragon Ball and it was made months after the series already established its a few arcs).

I also have to criticize the art style but thats for another time (and its more of a criticism on the manga than the TV series).

Have you ever notice character development in time frames that is good varies wildly?


answers.yahoo.com/question/ind…

I only discussed movies in the above link but I really notice a HUGE difference. For example seeing your favorite party character die in Mass Effect which is about a 8-12 hours long game is considered BIG CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT. But it would rarely work well in a long running TV series such as Dragon Ball in which it took at least 3 entire seasons for Piccolo to turn to the side of good.
