For anyone who is visiting this blog for the first time in a long while, I have to apologize. I was reaching a certain point where I’m not sure what I want to do next.
I’ve written anime reviews for over three years and I wanted to try something new. I then switched to writing video game reviews on a website called bitmob.com. There’s a specific way in which I can integrate Google ads with my profile. With advertising, I can theoretically make money from writing on the things I love.
I admit that I haven’t written as many anime articles as I used to. I’m a little scared that the anime industry will go under, because I was deeply disappointed at some of the recent shows. Thankfully, my outlook changed after I saw the most recent anime movie from one of the more impressive directors, Mamoru Hosoda.
The film, “Summer Wars,” is a unique summer vacation drama with plenty of silly cyber-punk twists. Although it is about an ordinary teenage boy and his awkward relationship with a girl, it is also an insane disaster film involving a worldwide computer crash which will cause an impending nuclear meltdown across the globe.
It’s not the most believable film, but the director has always impressed me with the childlike innocence of his drawings. More importantly, he creates some of the best romance stories from the most unlikely situations imaginable.
If anyone is into movies like The Social Network, they might definitely enjoy this movie. The scenario is a little hard to believe. I still can’t imagine a group of teenagers saving the entire world through playing geeky video games.
I enjoyed it though. I’m sure that anyone else will enjoy it too, as long as they don’t take it too seriously.
