A lot of the time, mass media and corporations often exploit one thing in particular. The human libido is a powerful instinct, one which at times could override certain thought processes. We’ve seen it everywhere in the media today, as they try to “sex up” their products or television shows. While at times we all can agree this is okay, since we live in a society where such instincts can run wild at times and even profited off of. The problem with overusing such tactics, is that it could possibly turn off viewers completely. That is what happened with the anime, Momo Kyun Sword.

Nihei Tsutomu is one of the leading manga authors of the cyberpunk genre. With his amazing artwork in pieces like Biomega and BLAME!, it was obvious he was on a roll by the time he got into creating Sidonia no Kishi. The problem became apparent though, in his most acclaimed piece BLAME!. People had a hard time comprehending the story. Though BLAME! was experimental and had beautiful atmosphere and artwork, the adaptation did not turn out well. This created a stigma with whether or not Nihei’s work could be adapted well.

Ginen Shounen, or Gelatin Boy, is a story based off of one boy’s love for his childhood friend. Now stories under this premise are a dime a dozen, but Ginen Shounen tries to add the twist of future shots into the mix of this romance. What this means is that, Matataki can take a snapshot of something, and see a lens flare of the future within the picture. This is the interesting new component this manga tries to sell, but was it successful in creating more than a generic childhood romance?

"Anime is intended to have ambiguous features. That's part of the art form."
- M. Night Shyamalan

In anime, you get a lot of stories that have a sense of a higher purpose and deeper meaning. They are meant to make you think about certain things in life from time to time and may stir up memories long since forgotten. Genocyber is an anime that tries to show this.

It's less about the physical training, in the end, than it is about the mental preparation: boxing is a chess game. You have to be skilled enough and have trained hard enough to know how many different ways you can counterattack in any situation, at any moment.

-Jimmy Smits

Looking at boxing, this sport is ruthless. The amount of training put in by each athlete is astonishing and all of it culminates when they step out into that ring. Though many people unfamiliar with the sport say that boxing is barbaric and the only point to it is to beat up the other guy, it's more sophisticated read more
