Last Exile – Fam the Silver Wind – Ep14: Scorched Earth

Posted in Last Exile - Fam The Silver Wing - tagged , , , at 7:37 pm by meotwister5

It’s one thing to conquer another country, and another thing to want to burn it to the ground.  It’s honestly hard to gauge what Ades really wants to do, and given the level of control Lusciana has, makes me question whether the child empress even fully aware of the actions of his subordinates.  Glacies for one doesn’t look to be a very hospitable or even arable land; it looks much like how I imagine Siberia to look like, and yet the Ades fleet thinks that carpet bombing the hell out of the land is their best bet to counter Glacies’ high tech weaponry.  This is the scorched earth tactic often used by many armies.

What you can’t have, you burn to the ground.

Last Exile – Fam the Silver Wing – Ep9: Like Sisters

Posted in Last Exile - Fam The Silver Wing - tagged , , , at 12:06 am by meotwister5

They say that blood is thicker than water, but true bonds are thicker than blood. I’m sure that some of us probably have adopted or foster brothers or sisters, and most of us some friends we thought of as family. So much importance is placed on blood ties that sometimes I think that we forget that blood means nothing if there aren’t any bonds that tie people together. Family is not limited to sharing genes and a house. Family is not merely a physical and genetic distinction. Family extends beyond something simply tangible but also to something more emotional and more profound. Who is to say that someone isn’t your family just because you don’t share any chromosomes? Family is all about the connection, and when that connection exists, then you are a family.

Last Exile – Fam The Silver Wing – Ep8: Jetstream

Posted in Last Exile - Fam The Silver Wing - tagged , , , , at 7:56 pm by meotwister5

The concept and practice of rocket propulsion has been in use even during the ancient Chinese eras, but it was during the second world war that jet propulsion really came into being.  I forget who was credited with the original basis for rocket propulsion, but the first widely publicized use of jet engines was under the Third Reich.  Upon the defeat of Germany during WW2 their most talented scientists fell into the hands of the Americans, British and the USSR.  These countries benefited from the rather advanced technologies they captured, and this helped form the weapons of war the would ultimately shape the Cold War.

The jets and rockets in this series look pretty basic, as opposed to the rather thick Russian accents, but presents even then just how different the techs between countries really are.  Ades may have the number, but Glacies have the obviously superior technology.

Last Exile – Fam The Silver Wing – Ep4: New Ship On The Block

Posted in Last Exile - Fam The Silver Wing - tagged , , , , , at 11:18 pm by meotwister5

Perhaps Fam was reaching too high.  Perhaps the Silvius is too lofty a goal for her to reach for.  You can’t fault her too much for wanting to take over the legendary ship that is all but a ghost to the rest of the world.  It’s the new ship on the block and already it’s showing to be a ship far more advanced than anything the planet has seen before.  Curbing her enthusiasm aside, Fam of course doesn’t know the same thing we (or most of us at least) know:  The Silvius and it’s crew don’t mess around.

It may be shrouded in mystery, but it sails for a purpose.

Last Exile – Fam The Silver Wing – Ep3: Prayer For The Departed

Posted in Last Exile - Fam The Silver Wing - tagged , , , at 5:14 pm by meotwister5

War is hell, war never changes.  During the lull between battles one will realize that the bigger the war, the more dead lie in the streets.  Who will bury the?  Who has the time to?  Would even care to give a proper one for the dead of your enemies?  Perhaps one single piece of humanity that still exists in the middle of a bloody war is the way we treat our dead.  Behind the front lines, between the battles when everyone is supposed to rest, it is characteristic of humans to pay respects to the dead, any dead for that matter, even of your enemies.  We give the time of day to bury them even if they were just shooting at us minutes ago.  No matter the circumstance, humanity honors the dead and departed no matter the reason.

It’s almost ironic that this episode comes out mere days before November 1 and 2.

Panty and Stocking w/ Garterbelt Ep8: Angles of the Dead

Posted in Pant and Stocking tagged , , , , , , , , at 10:24 pm by meotwister5

You may have noticed that my posts for this series have been late as of recent.  It’s not because the series sucks and I’m only obligated to do it.  Far from it.  It’s because, sometimes, this show is too awesome for words, and screenshots are the only things that can justify it’s bizarre glory.  That and subs appear on Saturday mornings when I tend to be really busy, so yeah.

So again, pics only post.  You may notice that the first part is a complete ode to Dawn of the Dead.

Panty and Stocking w/ Garterbelt Ep7: Dildobot Transhome!

Posted in Pant and Stocking tagged , , , , , , at 12:50 am by meotwister5

I love transformers.  I love them to death.  I cried when Optimus Prime died in the G1 movie (ohs nose spoilarz!) and it was never the same since, not necessarily bad mind you.  When I heard that Panty and Stocking would be parodying the show, I knew it would either be completely awesome or completely horrible.  Nothing in between.

Thank god it was the former.  These shots are in no particular order because I’m too sleepy to do text posts right now lol.

Yes I know I didn’t forget to blog last week.  Just had been busy with school stuff so I decided to wait it off until episode 7 aired, so I might as well do it now.

Gonna be a short post because I’m running out of brain cells lol.

Panty and Stocking w/ Garterbelt: Epistaxis and Emesis

Posted in Pant and Stocking tagged , , , , , , , at 11:19 am by meotwister5

If nose picking becomes a fad… consider me first in line?  As someone who tends to have a hypersecreting nasal cavity I do sometimes find it hard to get a private place where I can… pick to my heart’s content when blowing my nose just doesn’t do it anymore.  Whether the inside of the nares is considered an erogenous zone is another matter entirely.

Also, the animation head for the second segment is Kobayashi Osamu, so if you recognize the shift in art style it’s because he worked on Paradise Kiss, BECK and some Studio 4C works.
