Well do ya?!
Since I have just about finished my finals and am bored out of my mind like how I have always wanted to be since the quarter started I thought it was time to add a bit more to weep over now that 2008 is almost over and 2009 is a few days away. Given how I am a creature that thrives on negativity I thought perhaps it was time to go over some of the dick moves that we have seen so far… Let us recall for a moment the trolls and those full of fail characters.
So any one up for some RAGE? (Note shameless image dump ahead.)
(WARNING: this post will have a lot a rage and mean words for many a character if you cannot tolerate copious amounts of RAGE read no further)
Trolls of 2008
Shoji Kawamori (Macross Frontier)
Planning Conference for Episode 25, and some people thought he loved Ranka and Minmei more than his toys…
This man is my 3D hero, he trolled everyone twice, first with the pineapple cakey, and then with the end. I have already stated how much I love the ending of Macross Frontier and eagerly await the next crop of soon to be trolled people who watch the Macross Frontier Movie expecting an ending… If history is anything to go by these people will be even more pissed than those who wanted to see if Mylene ended up with any one in the Macross 7 OVAs. Mr. Kawamori is a life long troll, heck I bet one of the reasons why we never saw Battle Frontier transform was because of the grief we gave him back in Macross 7. He even brought Ranka up to a high only to let her character suffer from one of the biggest backlashes in Macross history, he even made the call to recycle shot Ranka so that Battle Frontier could look more GODLY when it socked the shit out of Battle Galaxy. That was some EPIC trolling Mr. Kawamori, let’s hope next time will be just as fun.
Abra Lindt (Gundam 00)
He even did a dance while Trolling Seel.
Lindt is a low level troll who lurks on /k/ I have to say that was a mighty fine troll on Seel for having Kataron for tea. Even if every one laments his lack of morals, Lindt is like Oberstien and Garak, he has no use for such small things. Not content with trolling the Sultan of Seel Lindt has also trolled Saji by trying to shack up Andrei and Louise, certainly Louise could do better, but Lindt will not suffer to see Saji happy. He might not get along all that well with Katie, but when Patrick applied to be in the A-Laws for the nth time, Lindt gave his blessing and now Patrick is back. I am sure that when this is all over Patrick is going to thank Lindt for helping him achieve happiness.
Mrs. Nakagami (True Tears)
Trolling her son for being dumb.
Even if I found Hiromi to a bit detestable and jealous to the point that she was greener than Impz’s hair, Mrs. Nakagami was by far more able to hold a grudge and make Hiromi feel it ever since she walked in. That was one awesome troll on Hiromi Mrs. Nakagami, funny thing is Hiromi bought it along with Shin. We still have no idea what the whole deal was with Mrs. Yuasa, but maybe some day we will find out. Still for telling a most cunning lie of all and turning Hiromi into a coward, Mrs. Nakagami was the biggest bitch of True Tears, not even Hiromi was that underhanded. Still let’s hope that Hiromi will never end up like Mrs. Nakagami, when the daughter of Noe blesses the sequel. Next time Mrs. Nakagami, learn to photoshop.
Crusader (The Cancer that is Killing Impz)
Me for making this post…
Failures of 2008
Jihad-kun (Gundam 00)
I make no secret of how much I dislike this traitor to the Kurds, and it has never been without reason. Frankly I have no idea why he was ever selected to pilot a Gundam, though granted I never understood how Shin Asuka was given one either. Suffice to say though Jihad-kun has made plenty of dick moves during the course of Gundam 00, perhaps he’s like some hopeless moron that can’t make sense of anything, but one thing is certain Jihad-kun has very poor judgment skills. First off despite his bitch, moans, and complaints to the contrary Jihad-kun’s first dick move came not long after he was squeezed out of his mother’s womb. Where any other child would have done something to thank his mother for her birthing pains with flowers or something, Jihad-kun repaid her by killing his dad, and then killing his mum too. Sure the rotten little bastard blames Prince Ali for this but if his brain washing was so effective why did the little runt try to stop his buddy the suicide bomber? That’s right folks Jihad-kun was too dumb to be brain washed effectively and as a result made all those stupid decisions on his own because Haruhi knows Ali would not have told Jihad-kun to try an obstruct a mission. Not limiting himself to killing his own parents Jihad-kun made another dick move by saving Nena…so much for peace and justice when the only person he did save in season one was a mass murderer. Not content on only saving mass murderers Jihad-kun went two steps further in saving that loser Saji so he could cry and drag down Gundam 00 with his woe is me attitude, worse still Mariana was freed to plague us with kiddie meat shield day care for the duration of the year. Out of all the people he could have save not one was a Kurd, sure Jihad-kun pretends to be a good guy, but judging by the people he has saved he might as well have saved Corner from heartbreak by Ribbons to cement his year of being an ass. Way to go Jihad-kun, may your inability for form coherent thought make for more dick moves in robbing every one of happiness because Saji is miserable.
On the piloting side of things, I can’t believe how this guy can claim to be Gundam when Gundam 00 seems to hate his guts and refused to Trans-Am against Bushido Bob. Really with the way Jihad-kun’s getting his ass kicked he better hope that O-Raizer will help him last five minutes against Prince Ali, otherwise come Sunday maybe his first kills will be team kills. Sucks to be you Jihad-kun now you’ll go down as the worst Gundam pilot ever, if he had to pilot a GN-XIII he’d be worse than Patrick.
Princes Poverty (Gundam 00)
I told her not to watch Cabbage Love…
You know for a monarch who has been ruling for almost a decade she has done less for the average Azadistani than Prince Ali. At least Prince Ali killed off the warring factions even if he had to kill every Azadistani infidel in Azadid to do it, but at least death by fire is faster than a slow death at waiting for Princess couch potato to get off her ass and do something. For all the poverty we see in Azadistan it’s funny how she gets to live in a big fancy palace all day watching TV, you have to admit it’s a real dick move for her to suck up tax money while her people starve and shoot each other on the street. Thank goodness the Feddies came in and stopped her bullshit rule.
Kataron (Gundam 00)
I see you got the message, good to know Kataron can read.
In what is possibly one of the more memorable dick moves of the year Kataron, the terrorists who need protection started a day care for children right next to their Mobile Suit Hangers. Despite their propaganda Kataron are almost as dickish as Hamas in hiding behind inhabited apartment buildings. Perhaps they fancy themselves as some sort of charity, but using kids to be a meat shield for your Anfs is a dick move Karaton…way to go. I am sure the Feddies are evil because they don’t put kids anywhere near their GN-XIIIs. Surprising thing is not even Ribbons is using a kiddie meat shield to protect Gadessa, GARzzo, or Liberty Prime (Arche).
Saji Crossroad (Gundam 00)
Always brings a smile to my face.
Any one who likes this guy needs their head examined, the biggest loser in all of Gundam. His only role is suck and drag down the series with his angst. Way to go Saji talking a big chunk of BS about how much you miss Louise as you flirt with Jihad-kun and Marie. I hope Louise kills Saji for trying to steal her Soma.
Marie (Gundam 00)
You heard her Marie GTFO!
Where do I begin with Marie, she’s disgusting and on the fast track to useless. Either Hal scares this clueless bint into the darkest recess of Soma’s mind that Space Loli comes back to kiss Louise or Hal kills her to spite Al. Either way I miss Soma… If Soma were still around then Saji would have only that lose Jihad-kun to talk to, but now Marie just has to have fake fights with Feldt and give comfort to Saji.
Desu-Yellow (Gundam 00)
God hate this kid, so freaking annoying that you just want to kill her with fire before she says desu again. I hope Prince Ali gives this bitch a cab ride.
Ranka Lee (Macross Frontier)
My Ranka folder nearly ended after episode 20.
One of the most heated fan camp wars to happen all year was from the Ranka faction that wanted to ship their Ranka over having Battle Frontier take on Battle Galaxy in the mecha battle of the year, suffice to say the Episode 20 Revolt was only one of Ranka’s daft decisions that broke my rage meter beyond repair. Such was the idolatry of Ranka that my duties as secret police became more heated as Ranka shippers took to the blogosphere using two or more IDs from the same IP address (You know who you are…) to justify her bullshit because Ranka was moe. Never before had I seen such dedicated worship for moe and loli than in the case of Ranka. Not even Hiromi shippers were as rabid as Ranka’s Moe Guards, I had expected True Tears to be the biggest battle ground, but mein gott is seem that Macross had suffered an invasion of shippers who had no love for the GODLY mecha ending. How it was possible that any one could have thought that I could have tolerated maltreatment of my Alto-hime despite my dogged determination to fanboy my hime until death was in for a great deal of disappointment. It was all fine up until Ranka cried and the Fleet almost died incident, that was the last straw and then she eloped with Brera. It was at that point I was no longer willing to give Ranka the honor of marrying my Alto-hime, and Ballte Frontier agrees.
Would have been more interesting.
I really wanted to like Ranka, but after her abuse of my poor Alto-hime I could not tolerate her antics any more. At first it was all nice and innocent and then after Galia 4 Ranka became famous and made plenty of dick moves against her former friends, she let Elmo get kicked out by Grace without a word in his defense. After all those hard times poor Elmo believed in Ranka when Ozma didn’t and how was he repaid? With treachery, sure Ranka had about much spine as a snail, but all of her cuteness and moe counted for nothing in the end. The saga of woe did not end there as Ranka let my poor Alto-hime get beaten to a pulp by her bodyguard Brera at school for a huge dose of public humiliation…way to go Ranka. Way to stick for my Alto-hime whom you professed to have loved, but not nearly enough to stop your Brera. Ranka thought she was the hime of Frontier and had my Alto-hime climb up a building like some adulterer to have a chit chat when a phone or lord even a visit to Alto-hime’s home would have sufficed…sorry Ranka, but you don’t treat my Alto-hime like that and get away with it. Worse part is you never even realized you were showing that stranger at the time more love than you did to my Alto-hime.
She went from Ninjin Loves you Yay, to Ninjin Loves you ? NAY!
Then Aimo Day came and Ranka decided to hang President Glass out to dry as the public booed him during the parade…that took some cojones Ranka to ditch the leader of Frontier like that without a word or an apology to his face. Little children can be so mean sometimes…Not limiting herself to unintentionally pissing on President Glass Ranka then had a bout of heartbreak and then a great slaughter commenced because Ranka suffered from emotional turmoil and didn’t even apologize. Ranka’s lucky that Sheryl and Alto-hime were there instead of me, I would have tossed her off the roof at that point. I won’t pretend I could sympathize with a little girl who had her heart smashed because she waited forever and a day to confess to my Alto-hime. Oh Ranka you could have shone, but alas your love of song was as weak as your professed love for my Alto-hime. Ranka did not let up on the deluge of disappointment when she saw Mikhail gutted by one of Ai-kun’s friends and then had the gall to ask my Alto-hime to piss on Mikhail’s memory and his oath to protect Frontier to help Ranka take Ai-kun home…if that was a big enough of a dick move she even let Brera kick my Alto-hime’s ass in one last fight and then turnabout and run off with Brera. Oh words could barely convey my RAGE at Ranka for abusing my poor Alto-hime like that. With love such as Ranka’s who needs enemies? All this abuse heaped upon Ranka’s friends and my Alto-hime…and let’s not forget how big of a dick move Ranka did to the Vajra in getting them all pumped up to mate only to have them get blown to bits, and tear her friends to pieces. No doubt Ranka’s fans would say that these were all very nice things Ranka did to these people, of course these same people might be masochists…not that there is anything wrong with being a masochist.
Hungry? Grab a Ranka…
Yeah I have been intolerant of Ranka for almost half the episodes of Macross Frontier, it just sucks when you get high expectations only to see it all blow up in your face. I don’t take lightly to treachery I don’t tolerate it form Jihad-kun and I sure as hell will never tolerate it from a little girl. No for me duty is the most important word in the English language, my standards are not so flexible and weak as to cut a character slack when they fail as hard as Ranka did. Ranka had the best qualities of Minmei at the start and all of it was for nothing all my hopes for Ranka were dashed and spat upon by her base damsel in distress act. Ranka made an oath to the people of Frontier and she broke that and to me that is something vile and detestable to my grunt sensibilities. Oh she was important alright, but good grief did my hopes for her turn sour and into a most powerful hatred I normally reserve to terrorist scum and Saji. Her ignorance of her own malicious behavior was nothing short of appalling and in the end I could not like her any more because she just didn’t do anything to redeem herself from fraternizing with Brera and pissing on everyone. But hey maybe one day when Ranka grows up I can forgive her for all the dick moves she never realized she made. It takes a lot of BS for a green haired loli to be panned even by Impz, but some how Ranka did it. I just wish it didn’t have to be like that. Ignorance is never an excuse Ranka, well let’s hope she learned something at the end, and just maybe in the Movie I will get to see an improved Ranka from that spoiled little brat who nearly sank another fleet. Children can be so cruel.
