TCG Magic the Gathering: Eldritch Moon pre-release match (camcorder test footage)

mtglogo

 

Went to the Midnight pre-release of the latest Magic the Gathering expansion, Eldritch Moon, last night (the 15th of July) & tested out my new camcorder. I combined it with my mini-tripod, which is why the angle is awful.

Video is also a bit NSFW due to all the swearing in.

Like an insane amount of swearing. More than I usually do.

Edit: posted a better version of the video.

Please subscribe to my YouTube channel so can make more of these type of videos. Mainly when I get better equipment & such.

Please also donate to my Patreon, so can actually get new equipment.

More videos to come in the coming weeks too.

Warning! Do not support the anime Kenzen Robo Daimidaler

Kenzen_Robo_Daimidaler_volume_1_coverI’m really not one to get on my high horse & attack people for what they watch (at least on this blog) but there is a new series that I cannot condone in the slightest.

& that is Kenzen Robo Daimidaler.

The reason why?

Pretty much because the central protagonist gains his superpowers through sexual assault.

Not only does he grope women to gain power but is actively encourage to do so, with some scenes bordering on rape.

Now, fan service & hypersexualisation is the bread & butter for so many anime series but there must be a line drawn on such matters are sexual assault & molestation (speaking as a victim of the former). I mean, there are plenty of series -new & returning- these season that uses hypersexualisation & fan service as their selling points –Blade & Soul, Date Alive II, No Game No Life, et cetera, et et cetera but they at least (for the most part) actually do not cross lines (more on that below), where as Daimidaler not only crosses that line but burns it & salts the Earth so no protest can grow back.

Now, this rant may encourage you to watch it & I won’t belittle or insult you if you do. As a consumer you must make an active choice in what you watch & participate in but such series as Daimadaler are abhorrent & the producers of such media should be told the damage that they are doing to society, media & participation culture.

The other abhorrence of this current series is the hypersexualisation of underage characters (referred to as Loli after Lolita & the act of Lolicon [link NSFW]). Series such as No Game No Life, Black Bullet and Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka put pre-teen females into positions of sexual submission & suggestion. It’s bad enough when fan service focuses on girls between 14 & 16 but lines should be drawn to stop this loli shite on screen, thus condoning it for society.

Here Endth the Rant!
