… If you don’t care about the world, you can’t create art. I am misanthropic and self-loathing, but never nihilistic.
I fall in love with everything. I also hate everything. It’s very hard to be a misanthrope and a romantic.
On the subject of “Antichrist Svperstar”… This performance from “Dead To The World” always gives chills.
"REPENT! THAT’S WHAT I’M TALKIN’ ABOUT!"
Whilst watching “Hellsing Ultimate”, my mind immediately noticed a striking resemblance upon seeing Alucard undercover as “JH Blenner”…
NOSFERATU ALUCARD (2007) ≈ ANTICHRIST SUPERSTAR (1996)
Hey! Remember when I used to write long diatribes about classic Anime…? Well, I’m not going to do that now!
I will, however, mention that last month, I tore through the entirety of “Hellsing” (both the series and “Ultimate” OVAs) like it was Kleenex… And I certainly needed a Kleenex afterward ‘cause it was truly that damn good (I’ll let your mind wander with that as it may)! This show (especially “Ultimate”) has everything I want in a great series - let alone Anime - including the raddest female characters I’ve seen in a long time. More writers would do well to follow suit. Of course, with that said, all of the males - including our “hero”, Alucard - are total bad asses, because that’s practically a given in the genre, but EVERYONE plays a major role. No one character is left out of the conflict or forgotten about and each brings something unique to the table before the big finale.
Now that I wrote an inevitable diatribe about another classic Anime, GO WATCH IT! I’m fixin’ to do it all over again.
PS - The original series soundtrack (and “Ultimate”, for that matter) is spectacular! I definitely recommend trackin’ that down for your almost guaranteed listening pleasure, after you’ve finished watching the show(s).
THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A BETTER RENDERING OF STEAMBOAT WILLIE.
