That awkward moment when you realize a fucking fictional character might’ve kept you from seriously hurting/killing yourself.
Goddamn I have some screws loose :|
if they can properly animate a horse and its gaits and anatomy in the 70s with half the budget, they surely could have done so in 1995
Reblogging because FUCK people need to LEARN HOW ANIMATION WORKS.
Reblogging because dumb fangirls need to realize that SHINY BISHIE KAWAII DESU is not the key to a good anime. If anything, it’s a shallow way to give a series easy appeal to the lowest common denominator.

The next in my line of Gundam reviews (sorry, I’ve been really slow with these) here we have the only other installment in the One Year War that I’ve watched, Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team. Heading into this 12 OVA series I had a lot of expectations for it largely in due part to its reputation as being “the most realistic” Gundam series to be produced thus far. With that kind of reputation it’s almost a given that it should be of the highest quality. What I was left feeling after finishing this OVA series was a bag of mixed feelings.
An 08th MS Team review I actually agree with for the most part?! Someone else who thinks Shiro is an idiot who gets far too much credit and the series is horribly overrated?!?! What is this madness!?!?
Granted I don’t know how much I can really say since we all know I think Ghinius is the best thing ever :|
