>I briefly mentioned that Jack has developed an e-bay addiction, and recently he has branched out from DVDs into X-Box games (yeah, like we really need anymore games in our house). In the post yesterday arrived Buffy The Vampire Slayer: Chaos Bleeds.
Not only does it bleed, but burns and turns into dust also.
After 3 hours of solid play, I started to wonder about the characters, in particular the completely disproportionate figure of Faith. Her breasts were each bigger than her head and she was very skimpily dressed. Do guys playing X-Box think the characters are sexy?
I am not saying that the graphics in this game are poor, but they are no match for Final Flight of the Osiris (Animatrix http://www.intothematrix.com ) who’s female lead, by any standards is completely hot due to the extreme realness of the animation (imagine a slightly more Japanese looking Lucy Liu in a graceful and sensual sword fight in which clothes are slowly being sliced off then cut to her dressed in red and black leather leaping building to building out running the bad guys in a desperate final mission).
Now that I think about it, are those creepy over violent Japanese anime also sexually arousing with completely offensive (but, let it be said, extremely imaginative) plots? Let me give you an example of what I was talking about.
Legend of the Overfiend has a very complex story line involving demons, which probably could have made it an excellent animation if it weren’t for all the completely sick and outrageous sex! This review gives you a good idea of just how strange a movie really can be (http://www.badmovies.org/movies/overfiend ), and how perverted some people really are (not pointing any fingers, but why do a number of films like this come from Japan?)
Why, may you ask, have I seen this film?
Well, I am a big fan of Hayao Miyazaki’s anime (http://www.nausicaa.net/miyazaki/mh ). They are quite beautifully drawn and the stories are priceless. By mistake, I decided to check out some Japanese anime by a different director (in hope that they would be as uplifting and morally upstanding as Princess Mononoke or Spirited Away) and randomly selected one from my local video shop.
Lesson learnt: Never randomly choose Japanese movies, anime or otherwise, you just never know what kind of freaky stuff you are going to be subjected too. Always ask the video shop attendant for a description in case of possibly offensive content which will result in you having the unsavoury, slightly violated feeling I had after watching Legend of the Overfiend.
