Saturday Morning Cartoons: Neon Genesis Evangelion “Numinous” (See Warnings Below)

I got kind of random yesterday and decided to look for an Eva vid for this morning… y’know, cause edgelord grimdark is exactly what the world wants at 11am on a Saturday morning, right? (Technically, this isn’t just Evangelion–there are other sources for the vid including FMA:Brotherhood and Animatrix, among others.)

I haven’t had to use any sort of content warnings in previous posts, but… well… It’s Evangelion. TW/CW: nudity, violence, violence against women, body horror, non-con, epilepsy warning, etc.

Head over to the vid’s page for a bunch of technical info for the video and how MrNosec made such a gorgeous Evangelion video even with End of Evangelion included among the various sources. There are also links to each of his AMV profiles, including the Org and a direct download. Which like… is a super throwback for me, because I think this is the first I’ve seen link backs to the Org and all since getting back into AMVs.

Saturday Morning Cartoons: The Clone Wars, “Man On Fire”

!!!!!!!!!!

I found this video Thursday night and. I. adore it. Man On Fire was on my list of videos I wanted to find anyway, but I was searching for videos to lovelytheband, not Oh The Larceny. Luckily, YouTube knew, or something, cause this was in the list that came up in my search. (lovelytheband does come up in its own search, just not what I’m looking for so far as show/song/chara set up.

Also? I would never have thought to look up something like Clone Wars for an AMV. My eyes have been opened, and I realize there’s more to this world than giant robots and harem romances… Anyway, time for the real stars of The Clone Wars to shine ❤

(Okay, I know I said the CTs are the real stars, and they are, but c’mon we know the real star is really Ahsoka. I’m totally going on the hunt for some Ahsoka vids, now.)

I’m A PokeStar! So, What’s Next?

So, I finally finished Pokemon Let’s Go: Eevee overnight Saturday. First, I’m gonna celebrate here with some Titus Jones (give him some love if you can!) before getting into the real post here.

Okay, so the real point of this post is to try and figure out what the hell I should pick up next. Up until yesterday, my entire Steam library was off-limits on the basis I had no chair to sit at my damned computer, and the room isn’t set up in a way that lets me connect the computer to the tv. But! Now Brian has his own chair, and I have my old one back. Finally! So, I have to figure out a list of up to four games per format to consider for my next adventure. I’m welcoming any suggestions that you guys might have, but in order to be added to the potential game list they have to ultimately be ones I already own but have never finished in any way, and that includes avoiding pretty much all ports, too. And considering my Steam library, like everyone else’s, has at least two dozen games I’ve never touched, I have quite the selection.

So, yeah. I’m going to dig through, pick those four-ish games per platform: PC, which is most likely through Steam but could also be EA Origin, Twitch, etc; PS4, Switch, and maybe NES/SNES Classic. I’ll do one poll on Twitter for each platform’s chosen games, then a final one to choose between those semi-final winners.

Hit me up with ideas! I don’t remember if Steam game lists/PSN trophies/etc are public, but if so you can find me under the BrennaCeDria, just like pretty much everywhere else.

Saturday Morning Cartoons: Fairy Tail “Listen To Your Heart” (Nightcore)

So, TIL that the app version of WP doesn’t seem to support blocks, or at least I couldn’t find the option while in the car, but anyway I’m at home again so I have them again now.

Anyway, today’s vid is another from Anime Safe Haven, but unlike most Fairy Tail vids (both theirs and others’), Happy and Carla get almost no love as anything other than sidekicks.

Saturday Morning Cartoons: Sword Art Online “Take Me Home”

I haven’t posted a Saturday Morning Cartoons in roughly a month now, mostly out of pure stubbornness. There are dozens and dozens by Anime Safe Haven that I can and eventually will post, but I don’t want to only post ASH’s vids; in addition, I keep having very specific ideas about what videos I want to post, and I’ve yet to find anything to match any of those ideas. Today, though? Finding this was a complete accident and I love it.

I was actually searching for possible AMVs for Country Roads, and there are some, but way down in the list I found this. I love it for two reasons: one, it’s a catchy song with good, fun editing; two, and more importantly? It only uses footage from actual Sword Art Online, as in the game the show’s named for. Cause I mean, the more recent stuff in the gun game is interesting enough, but SAO needs to be SAO, and Asuna is more than just The Girlfriend Type™. Only the original SAO really portrays her as that, even while also letting her have more domestic interests and skills as well. They could have gone all moody badass chick to go along with Kirito’s moody badass dude. They could have gone all Girlfriend Type from the start. They didn’t, though; in that early part of the show, she was actually a well-rounded person.

Asuna deserves more than what the show’s given her from the second half of that first season and onward. This video gives her what she deserves.

State of the Brenna, CAKE DAY!

So yeah, today’s my birthday! I have a ton of everything and nothing planned today; mostly, I’m planning on going around and collecting all the free shit offered by restaurants and stuff, followed by dinner and games at Chromatic Dragon’s (@gamerpubsav) more restaurant-y location. But, that comes with a slight problem…

See, I’m supposed to evolve into Charizard today, seeing as I’ve reached level 36. And Chromatic Dragon? They actually have a Charizard themed burger. But I was warned in advance a few days ago, by their own Twitter, that the Charizard is THE hottest item on their menu. And, well… Flavor-spicy I’m usually good with. BURNING HEAT spicy, though… I can’t do BURNING HEAT spicy. So I’ll have to figure out another plan for what to order tonight. I’m considering just making it a day of only ordering cakes, or things with cake in the name, all day today instead. Maybe, idk for certain yet. We’ll see.

Anyway, I’m posting from my phone today so I don’t forget to do so in the first place, and I’m too lazy to go hunt down pics or gifs for today’s post. Also, I’m running kinda short on time right now, cause I’m using a gift certificate from Christmas to get a massage in a little while and I still haven’t even showered or eaten breakfast yet.

(Oh, I do have a list of free places I’m planning to hit up, but if anyone has any suggestions shoot them to me, asap! I only have until maybe 1pm EST to add places to my list!)

Saturday Morning Cartoons: Martian Successor Nadesico “Superman”

This is another really, really, old AMV, but it’s by far one of my favorites ever. Nadesico is one of the best, most underrated series ever, and Akito and this cover of Five For Fighting’s Superman (acappella by Off The Beat) is amazing. The show itself is an amazing blend of space-mecha-harem-parody anime there is, always and never taking itself too seriously. Since there’s no official upload on youtube, here’s the original page for it on the Org: Akitoman by dji. (From what I can see, quality will seem better on phones than browsers, since they won’t stretch quite as much.)
