Devil May Cry

As I mentioned Dante in the previous post, it got me thinking about actually introducing you to one of my favourite animes. The Devil May Cry anime. Why? Well… It has Dante! I mean, sexy half demon demon hunter… What do you want more? Oh, I know! For him to be real! xD But alas, we can’t have that so we have to do with just the anime and the video games.
I will not be going into the video games in this post, I’ll leave that for later. This is about the anime only.

So, Dante is a demon hunter in Capulet (I think…) city. He owns the shop Devil May Cry and for money, he goes and defeats demons that swarm the earth. Then, there is Morrison, his agent who hands him jobs.

Also, Dante is always short on money, because, his friend Lady, yes, that is what she’s called, always takes it from him. Well, he does owe her a huge amount… And then, there’s Trish. She’s a demon modeled after Dante’s mother. And she can control electricity to some extent. Honestly, I don’t know the full range of her powers.

Okay, so about the storyline.

It starts with Dante having to deliver a young girl – Patty Lowel – to some mansion in order for her to recieve her inheritance or something. He tries to refuse, but in the end, he does it.

They travel and are attacked by several demons. In the end, it is shown that this Patty is not the one the inheritance is for and she was only used as decoy.

Patty then starts hanging around Dante’s shop and some of the scenes are quite funny.

The plotline then continues with some missions, in the second, Lady is introduced and few episodes later, it’s Trish.

In total, there are twelve episodes and my favourite si ninth and sixth. The sixth episode has great music! I mean, the Rock Queen Elena Huston’s song is beautiful! Then, the ninth episode has POKER! Seriously, POKER! And that says it all! I like poker very much. And the version used in the anime, it’s interesting. Won’t go into it, though. That would take too much time, just go and watch the episode. It’s great! I promise!

11

Then, the last two episodes or so, there is the hell and underworld and the reason for Patty being there is finally uncovered. I again, won’t go into it. This time, because I just don’t remember it well enough. That part is boring anyway. I suggest you skip the last episodes. Well… probably not the first time, but if you watch it more than once, I don’t think the last episodes are interesting enough.

13

Other than that, the anime is great! I’ve read some reviews saying that it’s no good and so on and so forth, but still… It’s DANTE!

Sure, the games are so much more interesting than the anime, and the plotline is thicker and more thought out, but still, the anime is good. I wouldn’t say it is the best out there, that would be pushing it, but is certainly isn’t bad.

See ya.

Pet

Hi,

I just wanted to say that I added something little to the sidebar. I stumbled upon this site, you can adopt “pets” there and some of them look really nice. I’ll be looking into others too, but for now, there is this pet. If, when it grows up, it will look weird and ugly, I’ll replace it with something else. But for now, this is the pet that you will be seing in the sidebar.

The neverending story

The internet’s a bitch! A real big one!

Okay, I should probably start at the begining. You see, when I was little, there was this TV series. It was called The neverending story. And, it was live action, not animated! And that’s the problem. Whenever I try to look that up, all I get is the animated series which I’m so not interested in!

Watching_over_you____by_LucioCrescent

And, this one, the live action one, is nowhere to be found! Which is lame! I mean, come on! It’s way better than the animated series! Isn’t there anyone who would agree with me? The thing is, I like it more than the movies, which are good, but not good enough. I guess it’s because it’s more connected. The Fantasya land or whatever and the real world. In the movies, it’s not so connected. Also, in the series, he doesn’t finish the book in one go, and I quite like that.

So, if there’s anyone out there that know where to get this and watch it, I’m all ears!

See ya.

The difference between evil and darkness

A while back, I realized that many people see darkness as the equivalent of evil. It’s that way in a lot of stories and books which lets me to believe that even in real life people believe this.

And it is something that irks me very much. Because, darkness is not the equivalent of evil! It’s NOT! If it were, it would be weird! Considering, that light is somehow considered an element, at least, by some. Me included. And if light is considered an element, why shouldn’t darkness be? Which leads to my interpretation of elements. There are seven primary elements. Yes, seven, not four. They are Darkness, light, fire, earth, wind, water and lightning. Then, by combining two elements, you get different elements, those are called secondary elements. Then, combining secondary element with a primary one will get you terciary element. And then, combining anything else will get you the rest.

102

So, how did we get to elements from darkness and evil? Well, simply because darkness is element.

Also, evil can be done without darkness. And that in itself is a proof of it being nonequivalent!

And I should probably shut up, because I’m able to rant about this to no end. And then, there would be no end and I would never get to posting this. So there.

See ya.

FF’s a bitch!

Hi,

this time, I just want to rant a bit! I mean, there’s like… a ton! of stories being deleted from fanfiction.net! Why?! Most of them are slash! Is it because it’s too explicit?! I don’t think so! And even if they are, there are fair warnings!

And, then there is like, another type of a story being taken down. It’s stories in which Harry Potter characters read the books. I mean, yes, there’s copyrighted material used in those stories, but come on! How many people out there are still buying the books anyway? The people reading it know the books already! It’s not like J.K. needs any more money than she already has!

So, a message for FF.net: Stop being a bitch and leave the stories alone!

1

Thanks. I know very much that this post is meaningless, but still! I needed to rant and vent! Those stories were good! Mainly, the story, because of which I’m writing this, the Unlikely Group “series”. It had four parts already, four finished parts! I was waiting for the author to post the next one, but hey, I wanted to read it again, I mean, there’s Voldemort/Harry pairing, my favourite, and what do I find? The story isn’t there…

So, if anyone knows of a place this story is posted on, let me know! Or if there is a place I can download it from! I wouldn’t mind archiving it.

See ya.

Inside the actor’s studio

Okay, I decided, that it was time for me to again write a response to the Daily prompt. This time, there were several question to be answered. So, let’s get to it.

What is your favourite word?

Well, I’m not sure if I have an actual favourite word, but I do say shees a lot. So maybe that? And if it’s not that, it definitely is some kind of swearword.

What is your least favourite word?

Well, this one’s easy. I hate the word pelvis with a passion! And it’s my high school gym teacher’s fault! I’m czech, but in my high school, we had PE in english! Together with the boys. And our teacher would, during streachign, always tell us to rotate our pelvis or to do somethign else with it. Ever since that I hate the word with a passion!

What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?

I’m not sure I’ll be able to answer this, as even I don’t know… It just happens… I’m not even sure you need a reason…

What turns you off?

My idiot father. Or boredom.

3

What is your favourite curse word?

Probably all of them. I use idiot, moron, dam or shit quite a lot. Oh, and SOB, which means Son of a bitch.

What sound or noise do you love?

Anything as long as there is not silence. Well, probably not anything, but I hate silence.

What sound or noise do you hate?

The alarm clock in the morning.

What profession or other than your own would you like to attempt?

Well, apart from a normal job, I always wanted to publish my own books. So that would be it. I want to be a writer. Only on the side though. I’d never rely on it to provide for me, as then it would be considered a job and it would take all the fun away from it.

What profession would you not like to do?

Hm… I probably wouldn’t be a teacher. I am bad at explaining. Very bad. Noone understands my explanations even if I know a lot about the subject.

If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?

That’s easy. I want him to say I belong in Hell! Heaven’s boring! I like Hell, there are sexy demons there! Well, at least in my view of Hell. I mean, the standard view of Hell is boring!

As for me hating Heaven, blame my creative mind. I have several stories in progress where Heaven is the bad side and Hell the good one. So there.

15

Okay, that would be the questions. I hope you had fun reading it. some of the questions were pretty weird, but still, I’m the person that likes to answer questions, so it was fun! It would be nice to have more daily prompts like this!

See ya.

Fishing

Hi,

Lately, I’ve been playing Minecraft, as you know from my previous post. Well, you know waht is the best thing about it? Apart from finding diamonds? Well, it’s fishing! I like it. Yes, it can seem boring, but I really like fishing out enchanting books! I’ve got about ten of em so far. And with time, I’ll get even more. Basically, what I do, is fish all the time while enclosed within a stone fence.

Yes, sometimes, I leave it to go mining something or other, but most of the time, I play on hard difficulty and just fish. Occasionally killing a zombie or other creeps that stand around my fence. Of course, when I go mining, I switch to peacefull difficulty. I seriously don’t want to deal with mobs when I’m balancing on the edge of lava. Just, no.

Fishing

But the fishing is good. Really. Apart form enchanting books, you can get an enchanted bow or an enchanted fishing rod. And other stuff. Like strings, leather boots, well, those are not the best, but still, if you combine them, it is worth something… Oh well, whatever. I just like to fish. It’s fun.

See ya.

BTW: The picture is from my game. It’s me that’s fishing.
