Sorry for the lack of a post last week. My computer gave me no end of grief as it decided to just stop working until... well... it decided to start working. I really have no idea how else to describe it. With that, and the fact that after it started working I had an online class to take, and I finally gotten one of my life long goals accomplished; finally being able to play Shining Force III, I really didn't get around to actually sitting down to write a review. Anyway, this week, I had a choice between which anime to review, either it was a magical girl show about friendship or it was a show about a death metal band who's motif is killing and raping, and so I decided to go with the anime that didn't leave me feeling completely depressed. Thus, I present to you Detroit Metal City! (In case you where wondering the Magical Girl anime was Puella Magi Madoka Magica.)

Okay, my spring quarter is coming to an end. I just have to get through finals week and then I'm free... until the summer quarter... yeah. But I'm sure none of you are interested in that, mainly because I'm sure very few of you guys are actually reading my blog posts at all, or are even interested. Anyway, now it's time to talk about some anime and this week we have Sword Art Online, an anime about a fictional near future MMORPG that uses a virtual reality interface... I SWEAR this isn't .hack!

Crescent's Thoughts On: Anita Sarkeesian's Tropes vs Women in Video Games: Damsel in Distress Part 2
|How long does it take to make your videos?|
Anyway, in this video Sarkeesian not only looked at modern day Damsels in contrast to her old school Damsels talk last time (Which is inaccurate given she talked about Mario, Zelda, and Double Dragon up to present day), but also a series of inverses and modifications of said cliche used now-a-days, modifications she calls the "Damsel in the Refrigerator" and "The Euthanized Damsel" and how this relates to domestic violence because....... Violent Video Games? And so, here are my thoughts.
