Drm is nostalgiatripping. Epically nostalgiatripping.
This was part of my childhood. No, I’m not kidding.
And yes, I have watched these shows before.
HOLY FUCK THERE WERE NINJAS BEFORE NARUTOE?
BEFORE NARUTO CAME AND PISSED US OFF WITH HIS ANTICS, THERE WAS… … … a ton of shows involving ninjas doing completely awesome things that didn’t resort to goofy maajeeks. Ninku was one of those shows.
There was once a bunch of fucking awesome ninjas that relied on the power of the elements to kick butt, restore order, and basically did awesome things for the benefit of the people. Then Raoh came in, punched one of their leaders’ heads so hard he became evil. This poor Raoh punchingbag became obssessed with power to the point where he tried to capture this awesome dragon dude. And then when that failed, he created an evil empire and killed off these awesome ninjas, save for a few since one of them probably would cause the UN to come in via time paradox and own his ass for child soldiers.
SOME TIME LATER, the aforementioned child, Fuusuke, who is also one of them totally awesome ninjas, goes on a journey to find the remaining awesome ninjas in order to kick that guy’s butt.
WHY IS THIS AWESOME: Farting penguin? Great story? The main character is just that fuckign awesome? HOKUTO NO KEN WITH NINJAS?
STARSHIP GIRL YAMAMOTO YOHKO
This is moé. MOERU WA YO I TELL YOU.
BEFORE HARUHI ANNOYED THE SHIT OUT OF SCI-FI, AND KONATA, THERE WAS… … … SHINBOOOOOOOOO- I meant, Yamamoto Yohko.
See, 990 years from now (1000 in the show), Earth is going to play wargames for planets. Not as ridiculous as mahjong for nations, I assure you, but still. The games are as such: 2 teams send out 4 of their very best fighters to kick butt and chew bubblegum. Last man (or team) standing wins. Winner gets a planet, loser gets to whine. Our heroine, the proto-Konata Yamamoto Yohko, seems to be your average geek, playing video games, helping out with everything, and just basically being the sexiest geek ever before Konata came along and made us all pedos. Unfortunately, she’s also an ace pilot who is helping out in these wargames by being THE BEST PILOT EVER (even better than Basara, Roy Fokker, and MAXIMILLIAN JENIUS AND MILLIA FARINA JENIUS COMBINED) and kicking tons of sci-fi ass. But she does not remember any of what I just said due to her being a derp and not wearing a helmet. Thankfully, with a lot of help from her best friend Kagariya Momiji (not related to Touhou’s Inushibari Momizi) and probably FUTURE CULTURE SHOCK, she regains her asskicking skills and proceeds to be totally awesome.
WHY IS IT AWESOME: What I said above is resolved in the first episode, thus turning it into AWESOME SPESS BATTLES. Also SHINBOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. And yes, Yohko was moé before the word was coined.
FLAME OF RECCA
Man shoots fire from arm, more at 11.
IT’S FUCKING YU YU HAKUSHO WITH A GUY SHOOTING FIRE AND THE MAIN CHARACTER NOT DYING. WHICH MEANS IT IS AWESOME. I have never watched Yu Yu Hakusho, so I may be way off here.
NAMI DA KANA, SUZAKU, IMA HOKUTO~
Ever wondered why I am such a Yuu Watase fanboy? I BLAME THIS. SOI T_T
AYASHI NO CERES
Annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd this was what made me a hardcore Yuu Watase fanboy. I’m serious. I really like Ayashi no Ceres a bit too unhealithily.
And that wraps up my nostalgiafaggotry.
