    Macross F

    Following a catastrophic war against a race of giants known as the Zentradi, humanity has escaped towards the center of the galaxy aboard a fleet of colonial vessels called the Macross Frontier. As the extraterrestrial threat is left further and further behind, life on Macross Frontier proceeds as usual. In the year 2059, a young mecha pilot trainee named Alto Saotome and his colleagues are preparing to perform an accompanying routine for the famous singer Sheryl Nome, who has come to Macross Frontier for a concert. During the performance, a biomechanical alien species known as the Vajra make a sudden appearance, breaking through the defensive perimeter surrounding the vessel and crash-landing near the concert venue, plunging the entire city into chaos. As the concertgoers evacuate, a young girl named Ranka Lee is left behind and gets targeted by the Vajra, but she is saved at the last minute by Alto. Following these events, the Strategic Military Services program notes Alto's skill in battle, resulting in his recruitment to combat the new alien threat. [Written by MAL Rewrite]

    Senki Zesshou Symphogear

    Senki Zesshou Symphogear. My favourite series of all time. Out of all 330+ anime I've seen, this one comes out on top. Why oh why, does this weird little musical sent down from the heavens by Micheal Bay himself, sit at the top as my favourite anime? Well, read the thing and see why. Spoilers ahead, not that it matters though. Not exactly a plot-heavy show, you can still enjoy it even if you know everything that happens. Story: 6/10 I'll be 100% blunt here, Symphogear's story is pretty crap. It has been done to death time and time again, the MC gets powers that they don't know how to use, then they get better at it, then a big villain appears that threatens the world, and in the end, the good guys win. But the thing is... this anime isn't about the story. It's about how damn cool it can get. So don't even consider this iffy story score, because in every other regard, Symphogear is quite good. The 6/10 is because on top of it's miraculously generic story, it does do a lot of cool things with its own lore, and relates a lot of stuff to mythology quite well. Characters: 9/10 This is where the show begins to shine through. You have a main cast consisting of a variety of tropes that, aside from the main character, don't get used a whole ton. The MC is the usual genki "gotta save people, never do harm" types, but a la Symphogear, it goes nuts and has her one-punch the friendship into things. Coupled with the sheer determination she puts out when the time requires it, despite being the most generic character, she's an easy one to love. The rest of the main cast consists of the cool, silent swordswoman type, who due to her upbringing and the tragic loss of her only friend, literally defines herself as nothing more than a sword, and is just as merciless and deadly. Her progression throughout the show as she gets to know Hibiki is a heartwarming one, and the way she acts is entirely believable. It was an easy trope to force, but they didn't and it wound up working wonders in creating just the right amount of drama for the show. The final character worth mentioning is the angry tsundere, but for once in the existence of all anime, it's a tsundere that has a VERY good reason to act that way. Her parents were killed and she was sold into child sex trafficking when she was young, for 6 whole years, before being rescued by the government. She later ran from them as well. Why? She doesn't trust adults anymore. Her horrific childhood entirely contributes to her lack of manners and quick temper, and overall was an excellent, though very dark, reason for her to act the way she does. Much like the sword, she too undergoes positive change after meeting the main character. Don't think the MC is some godsend though, a lot of the things she does, she doesn't do by herself, extremely suddenly. Most of the characters come to realizations by themselves, perhaps with some assistance from side characters here and there. The MC is more of the driving catalyst for the change. Overall, a 9/10 because despite being a pile of cliches, they work perfectly, and all have very specific roles to perform within the show, all of which are done very well. Always remember: Cliches are not bad, poorly used cliches are bad. Art & Animation: 7.5/10 This one is hard to accurately display with one number due to how I format these things. The art itself? It's pretty meh The animation itself? Well the action scenes are all fantastically well done, better than a lot of shows, however the non-action scenes are comically bad at times. I can honestly say that while the worst examples are REALLY bad, you can't help but just kinda laugh at them. So bad they're good, so to speak. And with the quality of the action scenes, it's rather hard to complain overall, especially considering that this is an action show. Making their action scenes look great while sacrificing random walking animation was a great move on their part, because they made the most important point of the show a serious positive. As for the art itself again though, a lot of backgrounds are actually really well done, with the exception of this one, which has shamelessly copy/pasted trees. Music & Sound: 8.5/10 As per being a music anime, it has good music. Really rather good music. In fact, they have Nana Mizuki as a leading voice actress. As well as Yuuki Aoi. And Ayahi Takagaki. (she has a degree in opera). My point is, this is a music anime filled with all-star voice actresses, two of which sing as a profession and are damn good at it, with the third being a ridiculously popular voice actress that commonly wins awards. Good music. Less rambling though, the musical aspect of Symphogear is not one that a lot of people expect off the bat of hearing that the characters sing as they fight. Many people imagine cutesy j-pop awkwardly overlaid on top of the action and they hiss and skitter away, then I have to drag them back again. BUT in reality, the music is far better than that. Not only is every song rather far from typical "pop" music, wherever you may source pop music from in the world, every single song is made specifically for the anime, with lyrics that tie into both the characters, their motivations, and events currently happening in the plot. Here's an example of a rock track, as well as it's accompanying lyrics. And that's just ONE example. Every character in the series has 2, maybe even 3 songs per season. And also just mentioning it, because people love that stuff, this is ENTIRELY the type of show to play its OP during the finale and it's the most hype thing. Really the only flaw with the music is that season 1 wasn't the greatest at putting the music into the fights. It more than did it's job, but there are examples where a character totally shouldn't be singing as well as they are. Yes, they do indeed stop characters from singing as the music continues if they get hit hard enough to knock the wind out of them for example, or if a character throws a hard punch, they'll scream the lyrics into the punch, and so on. They following seasons are much better at doing this, and it entirely becomes a non-issue. As for general sound effects, there's nothing overly fantastic, but they get the job done as well. Everything sounds as it should, all is well timed, no complaints there. Effectiveness: 9/10 Now THIS is why you watch Symphogear. No amount of simple explanations can quite get across just how great this show is at performing what it does. It's extremely aware that it's a dumb fun anime, and it's sticking with that till the bitter end. Simple story? Doesn't matter. Great characters? Only makes the hype flow better. Wonderful music and voice actors? Keep pilin' on the hype. Because Symphogear is an action show. And oh man, does it ever deliver effectively on that front. Even with a terrible budget, they realized their priorities and made the action scenes look amazing, and the amazing cast of voice actors put the passion necessary into the characters to really hit the epic moments home. Symphogear is a show, where you know EXACTLY how it's going to end, and what's going to happen throughout the plot. They are 100% going to beat up the villain and save the day. Would this normally be a problem? Yes. But not here. You won't be saying to yourself "ah man, I know they're gonna win already, what's the point?" because you'll be asking yourself "oh man, how hard are they gonna win next time?" and it's that question that will keep you glued because it does indeed deliver appropriately, consistently. Never watch Symphogear for its story. That's a dumb idea. You wouldn't watch Nichijou for it's plot, and you wouldn't say Death Note is terrible because of it's lack of comedy. You watch Nichijou to roll around laughing because that's what it was meant to do, and you watch Death Note for a serious supernatural mystery. Much like them, you watch Symphogear to watch a peppy teenager punch things so hard they burst into flames, when they entirely have no reason to burst into flames, they only burst into flames because it looks cool. Overall: 8/10 Honestly, I covered the biggest reason in Effectiveness, but I'll recap once more. Symphogear is a fun show. Nothing more, nothing less. If you expect anything that isn't a fun, over-the-top action show, then you're watching the wrong anime. It will deliver greatness to your eyeballs in the form of giant piles of hype, so long as you're in the mindset to accept that that's what the show is like.

    Panic! at the Disco: High Hopes

    I absolutely love this song/music video and I think you have broken it down very well, pointing out all the important symbolism and appreciate the great choreography as well because, honestly, it was truly beautiful.
  13. Okay, so it appears this review/expose' will definitely have to be an expose', now I know a lot of people don't believe in the Illuminati or anything like that but if you would, please hear me out and read through my entire post before judging it. Here is the video, feel free to watch it now if you want to get your own impression of it before reading my review. I will provide time-stamps below when talking about certain parts of the song, so if you want to simply keep up with what I am saying and not watch the entire video, feel free to start reading right away. Okay, so at the 0:01 second mark we already see some symbolism in the form of an Owl, now some of you may not understand what this Owl symbolizes, therefore I will provide you with the details. The Owl represents Moloch (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moloch). Moloch is the god of child-sacrifice and was worshiped by the ancient Canaanites back in the times recorded in the Old testament. Moloch is still worshiped today, by elites and by the Illuminati. Want to see proof of this? Well here you go, this email was recovered and is one of the 33K emails Hillary Clinton tried to delete: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moloch <I mean hey, you can't really disprove the fact that there are elites who worship Moloch when you see them mention him by name right there. Also, if you think that the "chicken" referred to in this email is actually a chicken, then sadly and regrettably are you mistaken. Chicken just like Pizza, Hot-dogs and vegetables is a code-word for Children, therefore in this email we have proof that the elites do in fact worship Moloch and do in fact sacrifice children to him; its not so far-fetched now is it? The elites have always craved power and when worshiping the god of child-sacrifice what else would they sacrifice? Now you may be thinking, "Okay, but as we can all see, Moloch is not an Owl but instead a Minotaur" right? Well you would be partially correct, in the olden times yes, Moloch was predominately portrayed as a Minotaur demon, however in nowadays culture we see more and more the representation of him as an Owl. Take for example Bohemian grove; Bohemian grove is a very secret place where many elites go to meet up. As we can see here in this Alex Jones video, they worship Moloch and he is depicted as an Owl: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Mziyg9ofPM They perform (rumoured) mock sacrifices however, it is believed and quite apparent imo that they actually do sacrifice children to Moloch in Bohemian grove. In this next video Alex Jones asks David Gergen about the Bohemian grove's rituals and what he meant by "I don't run around in the wood's naked". Just watch his reaction to Alex Jones questions: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GHFoUZEjuNM Now if the Bohemian grove were really just an elite party where nothing really went on, he could have easily discussed further what they did in Bohemian grove. The name for "Owl" in Egyptian is Moloch. This explains why today it is represented as an owl, it is also easier to hide an Owl in plain sight in your videos and use it for subliminal messaging than a giant demonic Minotaur. Now an Owl by its lonesome does not symbolize Moloch automatically, however since this video contains so many other references to the Illuminati/Masons it is quite clear why it was incorporated in this MV. Okay, now on to the next part of the video I wanted to discuss. At the eight second mark we can see a doll/puppet wearing on her head some sort of a cage. Now some people would say "That is just to keep her hair in place" however it goes much deeper than something as innocent as that. Now before I get into why she is a puppet I will have to first explain to you the cage on her head otherwise you may not understand what I am getting at. Okay, so the cage symbolizes what is known as "Beta sex-kitten programming", a form of "Monarch Mind control". Now if you haven't heard of either of these I suggest you research them, for now though I will provide you with some information on said subjects. Okay, so have you ever heard of "MK Ultra"? Well MK Ultra programming is a mind control program, it was illegal at the time it was started but was officially sanctioned in 1953. The intended purpose of the MK ultra operation was to force confessions out of people through mind control, this my friends, is all documented. Note: Images retrieved from Wiki. MK ultra programming was officially stopped in 1973 (At least that is what we are supposed to believe) however it is quite apparent that it still goes on today. "The program engaged in many illegal activities, including the use of U.S and Canadian citizens as its unwitting test subjects, which led to controversy regarding its legitimacy. MK Ultra used numerous methods to manipulate peoples mental states and alter brain functions, including the surreptitious administration of drugs (LSD) and other chemicals, hypnosis, sensory deprivation, isolation, verbal and sexual abuse (including the sexual abuse of children), and other forms of torture" -Wiki. MK Ultra mind control symbols include: Cages over head, White rabbits, Animal prints, butter-fly's and more. Since the video has this far only shown the cage symbolism that is what I will focus on seeing as going over even the few other examples I stated would take too long. Alright, so the cage symbolizes mental captivity, it tells us that the wearer has been broken and is now completely and utterly under the influence of MK ultra mind programming have lost all freedom. Not only does it represent mental slavery but also physical, because the MK ultra victims have "handlers" or I guess I should say, controllers. These controllers keep them in check and use them for their own pleasure. Their are so many singers who portray themselves caged, such as: Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Selena Gomez, Brooke hogan, Justin Bieber and more! We can also tell that this is symbolism for MK ultra because many times it is accompanied by other symbolism. The American intelligence agency tattooed some of their MK Ultra victims with tats of Monarch butterflies, roses or bluebirds so they could identify them easier. Here we can see Lady Gaga sporting the ever so popular cage on stage and here in this next picture I will show you we can see her with the Monarch butterfly symbol, coincidence? I think not. So there you have it, Lady Gaga as well as many other celebrities openly show their allegiance to the Illumainti/Masons and their mental slavery due to MK ultra/Project Monarch mind control. (I don't think I need to explain the hidden eye symbolism). Okay, moving on yet again, because yes, there is still even more... So at 0:13 and even better at 0:25 we can see the All-seeing eye symbol. As I said, I do not think I need to explain this symbol, if you do not recognize it then please, go and research it for yourself. Around the All-seeing eye on her shirt we can see a thunder-cloud, like the name of the song. However all around it is lightning, if you watch further we see the Lightning symbolism a whole lot more throughout. The lightning symbolizes Lucifer's fall from heaven and has always been linked to such. Luke 10:18 "And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven" -KJV. Lady gaga has used this symbolism many times as well as other singers and bands such as AC/DC and KISS. Seeing as the lightning is seen surrounding the All-seeing eye in this video we can assume its intended purpose is to symbolize Satan. Also, if anyone could translate the Japanese around the eye for me, It would be much appreciated. ~♥ Moving on yet again. 1:42 seconds, the animal symbolism, and of course, it has to be cat. This symbolizes what I mentioned earlier, "Beta sex-kitten programming", this is a form of Monarch mind control that forces the victim to conform to the handlers every sexual command. Many singers display this kind of symbol in their work and wear animal print. For example Katy Perry, who in an interview straight up said "I sold my soul to the Devil". Here is the link to said interview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SPvtGvGtOzM After her change from Gospel singer to Satanist, Katy Perry has shown her allegiance to the Illuminati and to Satan. Image 1: Flashing the 666 (mark of the beast) while wearing animal print. Image 2: The official MV dark-horse portrays Katy Perry with the All-seeing eye symbolism (as well as much more). Onto the next part of this MV now. 1:50 Now there it is, what we were all waiting for. The final nail in the coffin, the butter-fly. Seeing as well have all this other symbolism throughout, It is obvious that this butterfly symbolizes Monarch mind control. Welp, that is that my friends I hope you enjoyed my expose' of "Thunderclouds" and I hope you have learnt something new. Feel free to comment whatever you wish in the comments, If I missed anything please tell me and have a grand day darlings. PS. Stay tuned for my next review/expose', I will be reviewing "High hopes" Music video, from my favourite band, Panic! at the Disco's new Album titled "Pray for the Wicked".
