“The 100″ Needs More Praise

A friend of mine and I have been texting about The 100 all day today and we finally came to an agreement that it’s one of the most unique and engaging shows on the air right now.

With all the shows out there playing games with ridiculous fake-out bullshit plotholes like having characters hide under dumpsters (*cough, cough* looking at you The Walking Dead) or resorting to “death” tactic cliffhangers…I have come to appreciate the writers of The 100 all that much more, because the writers have faith that their show has enough merit to stand on its own without having to rely on cheap publicity stunts to keep the show trending. They don’t need the dramatic theatrics to keep people interested, because their writers are BETTER than that. (Looking at you AGAIN TWD).

Thinking back to the first season we have had so many shocking deaths over the years that I still remember clear as day from 3 years ago.

SPOILERS

-Wells dying at the hands of Charlotte.

-Charlotte killing herself because she couldn’t live with what she’d done.

-Anya’s death.

-Clarke mercy killing Finn.

-Lexa dying in front of Clarke.

-Lincoln being shot in the head while Octavia couldn’t do anything but watch and cry. (That one KILLED me).

-The attack on Mount Weather.

-Monty having to gun down his own (non)-mom.

-Sinclair dying to protect Raven.

-That whole Hunger Games style conclave with Game of Thrones aspects, in which everyone dies. Roan, Illian, Luna. Effing everyone.

-And now…Jasper and his Jim Jones situation.

You have to hand it to the writers and show-runners of The 100. They got some beachball sized lady nuts, yo. They know how to compel an audience AND keep them coming back without having to rely on cheap tricks.

This show actually has me shook when I watch because I know they aren’t afraid to kill (almost) anyone. Even when there is a semi-cliffhanger, it’s usually resolved fairly quickly (and usually in the same episode!). Take Octavia’s fate after she had been stabbed and fell off of a cliff. TV rules dictate that unless you see a body, they aren’t dead. And the writers didn’t keep the audience in suspense for an ungodly stupid amount of time. In fact, we find out her fate at the end of the very episode she was stabbed instead of them dragging it out to “will she be alive, or won’t she?” over weeks or months. It pisses me off when shows use that plot. The 100 doesn’t do that.

I dig it when writers write a well rounded story and are able to close one chapter, but give us more to go on. That’s how a cliffhanger should be properly done. Close the door on the plot you’ve been working on ALL SEASON, and open the door to more adventures and mysteries near the end. Because if you don’t resolve the big moments you’ve been building to…it becomes a let-down to the fans.

All you other shit-shows using the same-old, same-old tactics of pulling PR stunts just to boost your ratings…you should take note. The writers on this show are pretty badass.

!SPOILER WARNING! IT’S WALKING DEAD TUESDAY…TO THE KING & QUEEN CAROL & DARYL. All The FEELS! HAPPY V YOU<3 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h8vT-87xSak&feature=youtu.be

One Piece Tokyo Tower

I went to One Piece Tokyo Tower on my trip to Tokyo this August, and I don’t ever want to leave that place anymore. One Piece fans should really visit this place. Unlike J-world which includes other Shonen Jump titles like Naruto, Dragon Ball and Gintama, One Piece Tokyo Tower mainly focuses only on One Piece. There’s an exclusive Mugiwara Store in there and also another Sanji restaurant which serves buffet.

When we entered the indoor theme park, we ushered into this 360 degrees cinema where we stand in the center of the room and they play all the epic moments and tear-dropping scenes from the anime. I remembered it showed Shanks saving Luffy, Sanji bowing to Zeff, Nami asking for Luffy’s help, Zoro losing to Mihawk, Usopp as Sogeking firing a shot at the World Govt flag, Robin yelling she wants to continue living, Merry’s viking funeral, Ace’s death and the Straw Hat’s reunion after 2 years. I kinda cried when I watched all these. We were then ushered out and then the staff welcomed us by singing “We Are”. Then we were free to roam around and play the games inside.

We were in One Piece Tokyo Tower!

Rolling down slope with the Kung-Fu Dugongs!

Partying with the Straw Hat crew!

With my favorite Nico Robin <3

Cut it out guys, stop fighting!

Thousand Sunny on the cruise~

Let’s go party, Chopper!

Let’s rock with the Soul King Brooke!

SSSSUUUPPPAARRRR FRRAANNNKKKYY POSE!!!

Road to Sogeking! You’ll have to use Kabuto and catapult rubber balls to the target. I am really bad at it. I’ll leave Sogeking’s job back to Usopp ^^;;

With our favorite Heart Pirates! Trafalgar Law and Bepo! *heart eyes*

One of the most epic moment, which lead Luffy to his long journey towards being the Pirate King.

Surrounded by fire with Portgas D. Ace.

Being picked up by Bartholomew Kuma.

Brooke’s haunted house. You have a mission to clear inside. You’ll have to throw a salt ball into the zombie’s mouth. Yep, make sure to aim the mouth.

That’s my friend peeping through a hole, watching Nami shower.

We watched another One Piece live in Tokyo Tower. They hand out some glowing crystal torch which changes colors according to the scene they were playing, and it was really cool! They were fighting against Kizaru and it was epic!

And there’s Law, walking towards the side stage, letting the fangirls swooning over for him XD.

The many sword collections from One Piece.

Law’s nodachi - Kikoku

Tashigi’s katana - Shigure

Mihawk’s gigantic sword - Yoru

Fujitora’s blade

Mihawk’s small blade

Another photo with the Straw Hat crew before I leave this great place.

I definitely recommend all One Piece fans should pay a visit to this awesome place! Well some of the games and rides have a no photography and videography sign in it so I can’t really take pictures. But please, if you have the chance, go to Japan and visit this place. I guarantee it is worth it! :)

And yeah, I have to do this XD

When you unlocked all the cool skins for your fave characters, but it’s just a beta version of the game :’)))))
