Captainymous Speaks: Stop Rejecting My Kawaii Rabu

I wish to remain anonymous through this submission, so I will refer to myself as Captain, my two friends as First Mate and Cabin Boy, and the weeaboo will be Landlubber. 

Warnings for mild violence and/or sexual content.  

My English isn’t that good yet, sorry. 

This was last year and I have since moved from this town. 

It was a pretty normal day, I think. I wasn’t in cosplay, and there are no cons in my town ever, so “normal”. I was heading home through town with First Mate, who was on the phone with Cabin Boy, and generally just minding my own business while waiting for First Mate to finish talking. 

Anyway, First Mate finishes talking and we start joking around, mostly inside jokes and general lighthearted things. We decide grabbing a pack of chips from the gas station is a good idea, so we do, and while I’m paying I start humming an opening theme to an anime. First Mate has wandered off somewhere, but he hears me somehow and starts singing along, and we exit the store with our chips and our tunes. 

That’s when He decides to burst out, screeching that we should “matte-ne, senpai desu! boku was haraheta mou!” Which, from my weak understanding of Japanese, roughly translates to “wait I’m hungry too”.

2 for the anime questions! :)

Sorry I’m so late! I just woke up ><

2: Has an anime ever made you cry?

Oh, definitely! I can be quite the crybaby! The ending of Code Geass made me sob horribly, so did Clannad but only the last few episodes. I cried when I saw the end credits of Sailor Stars the first time I watched it because I couldn’t believe that my childhood anime was actually over. Nabari no Ou made me cry a few times because YOITE!!! There are others, but I can’t remember them all XD

Some fluff to soften all the recent smut. Redid Lon’qu’s first kiss as a one shot~

“Lon’quuuu!” you look for your grumpy swordsman everywhere. After confessing to you, you haven’t seen the man for days. Well you have, but they’ve been for such brief moments that you’d blink and miss him. At dinnertime he would be conversing with Libra and Frederick, and look very distressed. You’d be concerned, if not for the lighthearted chuckles from his companions. At least now, you’ve finally spotted him, polishing his sword underneath a tree. “Lon’quuuu!” you sing his name again, and he looks up, looking half-nervous, and half-happy.

Man, what a fun little game that was.

If you happen to like Metroid and/or retro sidescrollers like Mega Man, please consider getting Xeodrifter, it’s only $10 and it’s avaible on both the 3DS eShop and Steam.

It’s like a minimalistic and more lighthearted Metroid that does everything it mimics from the series right but also has its own fun mechanics and charm that make it more than your average indie Metroidvania.

There’s HP and weapon upgrades (that you can use to customize your attacks as you like) and a handful of pretty cool abilities that you find as you beat bosses. Also four different little planets to explore.

Only downsides (to me at least) would be that jumps are fixed no matter if you hold the button or not (you get used to it but it was pretty annoying at first), only one boss design (you only fight similar looking bosses that have new abilities each time, pretty similar to Metroids in Metroid II), and that it’s pretty short (it took me around 3 hours to beat, but it depends of the person because of the difficulty, which is a little harsh at the beginning), although it was definitely worth the money for me due to how fun of a ride it was.

If you dig what you see then go for it, trust me, you’ll like it. 

People who have played Mutant Mudds will probably guess how much of a quality game it is; I personally liked it much better than MM (which is also a game I liked a lot).

But yeah, check it out.

Anime for Beginners and Non-Enthusiasts

I like anime. But not everyone does, and I can understand getting weary of its stereotypes or never having found an entry into its realm. So, I have compiled a few series (in alphabetic order, feel free to just pick any which sounds appealing) that come with my highest recommendation but require no previous familiarity with or pronounced sympathy for anime tropes. (The ones marked with an * are, in my humble opinion, great beyond measure.)

Bakemonogatari / Nisemonogatari / Nekomonogatari

A very wordy and pretty weird, but immensely rewarding, series of novel adaptations. Has some disorienting effects which only served to increase my fascination with it.

Blue Exorcist

Lighthearted, adventurous, beautifully realized coming-of-age fantasy drama series. There’s also a great movie set after the finale.

Cowboy Bebop

Retro sci-fi series whose episodes vary wildly in tone and topic. Very stylish; plus, it has an excellent soundtrack.

Eden Of The East

A rather down to earth and relatively realistic suspense story; overall on the light-hearted side.

Ergo Proxy

Hardboiled noir sci-fi.

Fullmetal Alchemist – Brotherhood

Lighthearted steampunk/fantasy fun.

Giant Robo – The Animation *

Grand, operatic retro steampunk/martial arts/superhero drama.

Haibane Renmei

Introverted, subtle, immersive, atmospheric, poetic fantasy drama.

Monster

An adaptation of the excellent and masterfully woven manga narrative by Naoki Urasawa.

Mushishi *

Part period piece, part fantasy; a strikingly beautiful, almost meditative viewing experience.

Paranoia Agent *

A surreal, brilliant masterpiece from Satoshi Kon, a stellar director at the height of his craft (I also strongly recommend checking out his movies, especially Tokyo Godfathers and Paprika). If this doesn’t blow your mind, you’re dead inside.

Planetes

Classic and very realistic sci-fi, without aliens and spaceship battles and all that distracting nonsense.

Samurai Champloo

Super-stylish martial arts series infused with hip-hop culture; by the creators of Cowboy Bebop.

Tokyo Magnitude 8.0

A scientifically accurate depiction of the aftermath of a massive earthquake hitting Tokyo. Caution: very sad.

Wolf’s Rain

Following a pack of mythical wolves on a trip to paradise in a dystopian future. Brilliant, allegorical, multi-layered apocalyptic fantasy epic.

Rehearsal Room

"And a one-two-three one-two-three one-two-three-four~!"
Lighthearted music was heard as the three practiced dancing, with the Kirlia sitting aside reading a book.

Tatjana and Siirke stood back on the sides, with Grenia fronting the group, the only telepathy user of the three used her skills to project an artificial voice to an audience. her rare skill making her a well-known idol.

The jousting match in Galavant omfg I laughed so much XD I don’t know how I’ve lived without this show in my life! Its charming and funny and I literally have a smile on my face the whole way through. For a lighthearted show I am genuinely loving all the characters especially king Richard, Isabella, Sid and the cook :) Its like a tonic to the miserable winter and even though I’ve downloaded all the episodes I don’t want to watch them all at once because having only eight I don’t want it to end yet!!
And I’m seriously considering remaking my Merlin musical episode video I made years ago because wow the footage I could use now!! XD

"I fought the idea of having security for a very long time, because I really value normalcy. I really do. I like to be able to take a drive by myself. Haven’t done that in six years. [Even in Tennessee, my bodyguards] have to be in a car behind me because just the sheer number of men we have in a file who have showed up at my house, showed up at my mom’s house, threatened to either kill me, kidnap me, or marry me. This is the strange and sad part of my life that I try not to think about. I try to be lighthearted about it, because I don’t ever want to be scared. I don’t want to be walking down the street scared. And when I have security, I don’t have to be scared."
