Tails the Babysitter! - Page 6 of 10 by SDCharm
Tails the Babysitter! - Page 6 of 10
NEXT PAGE - COMING SOON!
PREVIOUS PAGE - PART 5


Alright, here's the next page. Tails was dressed appropriately for the role he's playing as the uh... babysitter of these two kids. I assume. And now he has to pee but apparently it's stuck on there with glue or something. He's stuck now.

As for me, I'm going to be doing an overhaul on how I make these pictures yet again. I need to find a way to get these done quicker. I know that things can be relatively tougher without photoshop or whatever but damn. 
Loading...
Okay...so... I don't consider myself a Naruto fan anymore. I didn't for a really, really, really long time yet I still kept up with the series because it really doesn't take much effort to read a chapter of it each week. And if it's bad there was always One Piece to look forward too, which is always good so it never bothered me.

Also, I didn't particularly like the way Naruto ended. Hell, I didn't like the entire final story arc aside from a few choice scenes and battles here and there. The entire premise of the war wasn't very alluring to me. However, the shit-storm mostly comes by with how neatly everything is wrapped up in a bow at the end with everyone marrying and getting weird looking hybrid children.

Whatever though. It's done. It's over. If you liked the ending, more power to you. It's just a work of fiction. And hey, maybe now you'll have some time to check out something even better. I'd be glad to help anyone out with that if they valued my opinion enough.

However, there's always that one corner of any fanbase that's scary no matter how good or bad or predictable or obvious the outcome of a manga is and that's the pairing wars. There's Naruto X Hinata people and there's the Naruto X Sakura people. I don't give a shit about pairing wars obviously. I'm a guy who draws humiliating pictures of video game and anime guys on the internet (Still working on that next page by the way) so I'm not one for it, but I know a lot of people are. That's okay.

Then comes the problem of obsessing over this shit and that's where this nonsense starts. Apparently on the day the final chapters came out there was some heavy traffic on a few forums where the fans of "NaruSaku" (or however the name fusion is supposed to be typed) were just... going crazy for a lack of a better word. Not all of them. There's exceptions to every rule. It's like saying all Sonic fans are angry idiots. I'm a Sonic fan. I'm not an idiot. I admittedly get angry pretty often but I'm no idiot.

That's to be expected though. Their fantasy concerning these two fictional characters didn't come true. Even though, personally, I feel it should have been obvious Naruto was going to end up with Hinata (her character serves no other point really) I can understand being upset... I guess. 

So as an outlet, a considerable number of people who liked that pairing went out and started to do some crazy things. They created this... fan-character on tumblr called Shinachiku Uzamaki and he's apparently supposed to be the son of Naruto and Sakura. He doesn't look much different from Bolt (Boruto) except he's got a different hair-style and his eyes are green... like Sakura's.

Okay so... there's nothing wrong with that... I mean, its fan-fiction. Fan-art. I love that stuff... but then weirder more disgusting shit starts to happen. Apparently they made a facebook page (It's closed down now) that was created with the slogan of wanting to kill Kishimoto. Had almost 200 likes too...

Not enough crazy for you? Well, apparently Kishimoto's assistant was also flooded with tons of tweets demanding an explanation on why he decided to end it the way he did and even demand that he change it.

Now, keep in mind, that these are people who have read the manga before it's been officially released over here in America; which means they're all reading it for free on the internet and yet somehow still feel they were ripped off of something. Maybe if they were people who purchased the DVDs or bought the manga I'd understand it a bit more (The being angry. Not the lashing out.) but even then, do none of them understand just how insane and rapid they're coming off as by doing this?

I see even more now why Oda doesn't bother with romance crap. I thought this was bad when it came to the Inuyasha base but good God.

Bad ending or not, the only thing you really have a right to do is be angry and cope in your own way by writing fanfiction and making fan-art. It isn't license to react like rapid monsters towards the very person you have to thank for creating this series you're so obsessed about in the first place. I guess the mentality here is that "Now that Kishimoto is done with Naruto, he's no longer of use to us."

Cause fuck real living people right? It's all about the fictional characters and your fantasy pairings. Whatever.

I'm still hard at work guys. Just give me a bit more time.


I saw the premiere of this... just now actually. 7 AM is normally way too early and they didn't really have a commercial for it until after it premiered but... I still caught it thanks to the fact that I have work in an hour as of me typing this.

Anyway, I've seen it and I really, really enjoyed it. I had the thing set to record in case I missed something and it turned out to work in my favor since I woke up 10 minutes late. So I ended up watching them out of order. However, the show is episodic so it doesn't matter.

The first one that actually did premiere I think was the better of the two though. "The Sidekick" was specifically about Tails getting injured really badly and Sonic holding auditions for a new sidekick as a means to protect him. Really heart-warming moment from him there. I was surprised when I saw Sonic hug Tails like that. I don't think I've ever seen him do that in any other Sonic media before. Maybe it's happened but I'm drawing a blank. The show's funny too. Thank goodness.

Eggman is top-notch on the funny-scale in my opinion. He's got that extremely violent and hilariously uncaring streak to him. Seriously, when Sonic asks him about Orbot and Cubot's feelings he just replies, "They're robots. They don't have souls!" and I just... he's such an asshole. It's great.

I'm really happy with Amy's portrayal as well. She isn't the drooling fangirl she is in the games but she's still fun and eccentric when she wants to be. She had this whole therapist/peace-keeper thing going on when Eggman was crashing at Sonic and Tails' house and inducing their mass insomnia. 

Not much at all from Knuckles just yet so still waiting on that. Sticks didn't get much air-time either but she's okay from what I saw.

I had fun. Can't wait for more.
More on that later. I'm thinking of doing an entire write up about what went down with that entire war and what not. I've been keeping up with the series to write it out until the end with my main obligation being "I need to see how this train wreck ends." If I do decide to do it, I most likely won't hold back.

That said, I can't say I'm mad. Just disappointed. I'd be mad if I was still a fan of the way it had been going. I still have fond memories of the way it was though. Of course, even Naruto at its best was never better then the loads of anime I've listed on this journal before. I don't wish to insult those who do like it but... all I can really say is that I hope they have a ton of top quality manga and anime under their belt. I'd be a bit saddened to hear someone make that claim and not know about the kind of things One Piece, Fullmetal Alchemist, Rave Master, and loads of other series have been doing. 

There's quite a lot I want to get off my chest about the way it just didn't work out right in the end but that comes later. And only if people want to hear it.


The Book of Life

- Reel Fx Creative Studios

Halloween is more heart-felt then ever before when it comes to what people are doing with animation. It's simply stunning watching this movie move by, I tell you. 

I went and saw The Book of Life with my younger sister this past weekend. It was my choice of movie this time and we had a really interesting time. I've seldom ever seen anything like this before. Just from the trailer alone, you can tell you're in for something spectacular in how new it comes across design and animation wise. Truthfully, this movie moves and flows so well that its hard to even wager a guess at how they even managed what they did.

The brief, spoiler-free plot going on here revolves around a group of detention students arriving at a museum. They're the delinquents so they're given "special" treatment by the tour-guide and taken to a bright room with plastic figurines that make up the characters of the tale she wishes to tell them. It's about a boy named Manolo and his two best friends, Joaquín and María. Manolo's a boy who loves singing and is generally really kind-hearted. Joaquin is a bit more rough around the edges but he's ultimately a very good person as well. Both of them desire the heart of the young and beautiful María. It starts as a cute kiddie crush but a certain development makes it a bit more serious down the line.

Anyway, the two Gods in the movie are what drive the plot forward. Again, without giving anything important away it's basically a tale that gets pushed forward because these two Gods got bored and decided to make a wager. Don't you just love it when Gods do that? "Oh yeah, humans are gettin' boring now. Wanna fuck with them?" Granted, La Muerte, the ruler of the Land of the Remembered is generally kind-hearted and lovable. In contrast, the Ruler of the Land of the Forgotten is a bit of an asshole. His name is Xibalba and his motivation stems purely from being tired of ruling over the grim and depressing Land of the Forgotten. Even though he has no trouble going into the human world whenever he wants because he's a God, he just can't deal with the fact that he rules over something he doesn't like as much. He's not evil. He's just a dick. A delightful dick whose very entertaining to watch and has an awesome voice (Ron Perlman, who plays the Lich on Adventure Time, the Fire-Lord from Avatar the Last Airbender, Slade from Teen Titans, and Mr. Lancer from Danny Phantom to name a few). Oh yeah, and Ice-Cube is in this movie. If you see it, you'll know which major character he plays the instant he shows up.

The music, I found out, were actually covers from other songs. It didn't really seem all that easy to notice though since they were done in a nice Mexican style and weren't just straight rifts. That and the fact that only two songs were recognizable to me helped. One of them was played in the trailer as an obvious joke too, which is appreciated. Because it was funny.

The movie moves at an incredibly fast passe. Sometimes to it's detriment but it's actually pretty easy to ignore once you're wrapped up in the story. Sometimes it can be a little harder to ignore then other times. Specific scenes that I felt required a bit more breathing room to get the full weighted emotion out weren't given as much justice and attention as I would have hoped a few times. When they were though, it worked really well.

In fact there's a moment near the end of the movie in the middle of the climax that had one of these moments done so right it actually made me cry a little. 

That's the thing to take away from this. It's got stellar animation and a really unique style but the important thing beyond that is that it's got a lot of heart, despite a lot of dead people making appearances within it. I would recommend it. It's really something to behold.
Okay...so... I don't consider myself a Naruto fan anymore. I didn't for a really, really, really long time yet I still kept up with the series because it really doesn't take much effort to read a chapter of it each week. And if it's bad there was always One Piece to look forward too, which is always good so it never bothered me.

I like Sonic the Hedgehog and all the stuff he comes with. I'm an anime fan. More so of One Piece and Rave Master than any other.
