Anime. I don´t get it. As a hardcore Marvelite and comic reader back in the day I was very surprised to see this anime thing get so much attention. All I had known of comics was Marvel and DC. The closest I ever got to anime was watching Starblazers and their spaceship was so kind of weird ship that looked like a ship from the 1800s with a cannon up front.
It just seems all of the japanese characters look the same. I mean look at this guy...
I mean he looks like he could be a cool robot but then they ALL look like this with a variation of color. Why do they ALL have to be carrying a gun? Can´t it be IN the armor ala Iron Man? You usually do not see IronMan packing heat!
I mean look at this guy. He has SO much going on that one cannot figure out the design on him. He looks like a couple of War Machines exploded on em! And GET this...Both the white robot and the black robot are named GUNDAM! Does that mean DAMN he has a gun? How do you tell them apart if all the big robots with guns are named Gundam? You don´t see Whiplash being called IronMan do you? How does one tell who the villains and who the heroes are if they all have the same name? I do not get why collectors go nuts with these. AND, they are like hundreds of dollars! I would never pay for anything like this.
Now what about this...ALL of the characters look like this. All with huge eyes etc. They look like baby toys when it comes to their human characters. They look ridiculous. I do not see the fascination with it. DragonBall Z? Does a Dragon actually HAVE balls? Such a ridiculous title. And all of their powers they have energy blasts coming from their hands. That is BORING! ALL of the characters have that? If you think the men are terrible looking, check out the women....
She if from a line or a show I can never tell called Full Metel panic. She looks idiotic! The big eyes again. And why do all the anime women have to show their panties? ALL of the figures have panties visably showing! And most of them wear school girl outfits with some kind of weird hair. Blue or purple etc. Girl....Psylocke you are not!
If you think I didn´t get the others...then I REALLY do not get this! Looks like a walking turd. Why do kids like this....crap! And AGAIN with the big eyes! Geez...Inarticulated hunk of wasted plastic. Same thing with that Domo guy. A turd with teeth or something. Yet kids go bonkers for them! Are kids just stupid today or what?
So that is it. I know some bloggers DO collect this stuff for reasons only God knows why but hey...More power to ya! You can have it all. Leave all the cool stuff for me though.
