N. Harmonik’s Blind Reaction To Death Battle: Tracer vs Scout (And I’m There Too, lol)

Sorry we haven’t done this in a while, but I kinda lost the footage from our reaction to The Meta vs Agent Carolina, and we sort of skipped Cammy vs Sonya, so here we are. As always, if you haven’t watched the original video, here it is…

And now, it’s time to react to a Death Battllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllleee!

Upcoming Plans For Jyger’s Rant + DC Rebirth Questionnaire

So, just thought I’d keep everybody up-to-date with what I’m doing for the next little bit. First off, if you’re wondering where the updates to my Nuzlocke run are, I’m still playing the game and getting screencaps of myself, but updates are gonna be kinda sporadic. This is because of two things that are happening that I’ll get into in a bit, but for now, don’t worry, the adventures of Mikey, Oswald, and the rest of my team will continue soon.

One major reason why the Nuzlocke updates will be spaced out, though, is because of Marvelous May. Speaking of, today is the cut-off date, so as of right now, I’m no longer taking votes. That means that tomorrow, I will be posting the finalized roster for the fan-vote tournament. Please remember that voting on individual match-ups won’t occur until May, when said match-ups are posted.

As most long-time readers of my blog know, N. Harmonik is my proofreader, and the two of us have done vlogs where we watch the newest Death Battles as of late. However, for this week, her and her mother have gone to Disney World. As such, I’ll be doing the Death Battle vlog solo this week (which is actually cool for me, since I don’t need to wait a few days to see it). But, when she gets back, N. Harmonik has agreed to do an article talking about her time in Disney World, along with photos she’s taken, so look forward to that. ^_^

On top of all that, expect there to probably be a quick vlog and/or slideshow of me going to Free Comic Book Day, as I am prone to do, and don’t be surprised if there’s some coverage of news regarding the upcoming DC Rebirth. Speaking of, I’ve been meaning to ask everybody here, if you were Geoff Johns and looking to steer the ship that is the DC Universe in a specific path, what would it be and what books would you want running as part of this new direction? Just something that’s been on my mind a lot lately is all. Oh, and lastly, sometime within the next couple of months, I plan to do a How To Drop The Ball In Comics about The New 52. Just one last look at everything that went pretty alright and horribly wrong with the reboot.

And in regards to my writing, after all of this is out of the way, I plan to go back and finish J.A. Phillips Presents Batman and Robin. After that, I’ll probably get to work on either Primal Strife or the long-awaited Season 2 of Power Rangers Guardians of Gaia.

Anyway, that’s all I can think of at the moment in terms of future plans. Lemme know if you have any thoughts on my current gameplan and projects, and I’ll try to get back to you. Ja né!

N. Harmonik’s Blind Reaction To Death Battle: Bowser vs Ganon (And I’m There Too, lol)

Once again, N. Harmonik and I decided to release a reaction to the newest Death Battle, Bowser vs Ganon. I should note that there’s unfortunately a cut-off at the end of the post-fight analysis. Totally my fault, forgot to delete the previous videos saved onto it after posting them. But the bulk of it is intact.

And, in case you’re wondering, NEXT TIME ON DEATH BATTLE…

N. Harmonik’s Blind Reaction To Death Battle: Dante vs Bayonetta (And I’m There Too, lol)

Welp, here’s N. Harmonik and I’s reaction the newest Death Battle, Dante vs Bayonetta, as well as the first episode of DBX. First up, the analysis…

…And now, IT’S TIME FOR A DEATH BATTLLLLEEE!!!

N. Harmonik’s Blind Reaction To Death Battle: Pokémon vs Digimon (And I’m There Too, lol)

So, I was at N. Harmonik’s place today, so I thought I’d record her blind reaction to the newest Death Battle, Pokémon vs Digimon. First, the analysis…

…And now the fight itself.

…So, with that out of the way, I said in the video that I “did the math” to determine if Mewtwo could beat WarGreymon or not. Strap yourselves in, guys, this is gonna be a long one…lol

If we’re doing this battle by the logic of monsters and their trainers, then we’d have to use Red’s Mewtwo here. In Pokémon Origins Episode 4, Red’s Charizard beat Mewtwo after Mega Evolving, and this was after Mewtwo had used Recover to regain a lot of its health from fighting the rest of Red’s team. Also, comparing base stats, it’s clear that Mewtwo is still slightly superior to Mega Charizard X when at the same level, so for the latter to beat the former even after using Recover, he must’ve been higher than Level 70, the level that Mewtwo is at when you encounter it at Cerulean Cave. But even if he wasn’t then, we know for a fact he became so later. In HeartGold/SoulSilver, Red’s Charizard ranks in at Level 84, and considering that Red had his strongest team with him there and Mewtwo wasn’t on it, clearly his whole team at that point were stronger than Mewtwo at the time. And lastly, if we went by Pokémon mechanics, since WarGreymon wears armour made of Chrome Digizoid, Mewtwo’s Psychic attacks would likely do less damage as it would be akin to him attacking a Steel-type Pokémon.

NOW, with all of that said, Mega Charizard X actually did put up an excellent fight, despite a clear difference in the two’s power levels. The reason for that, though, is Red. Once that element of the fight was taken out of the equation, Charizard was left wide open as we saw. And, with that in mind, we have to look at Red and Tai and compare the two. Red may have been the better tactician, but he’s not used to getting into fights himself. Tai and Matt fought all the time, whereas Red and Blue occasionally got up in each other’s face, maybe even shoved each other a bit, but never an all-out brawl. Also, while Red was fit enough to travel Kanto and make his way to the heart of Mt. Silver, Tai’s dealt with comparable traveling situations while traversing a large portion of the Digital World, which is supposedly the same size as Earth.

*sighs hard* Anyway, that’s all I wanted to say. Hope you enjoyed, and lemme know if you’d like to continue to see our blind reactions to stuff like Death Battle. Also, feel free to check out the music from the Death Battle below. Ja né!

About Comments On My Blog

… … …So, um… …recent events in my life have kinda made me rethink how I do certain stuff and conduct myself in different aspects of my life. One thing I’ve kinda had to take notice of is how I generally look at and treat comments on my blog. As anyone who has read my blog for long periods of time knows, at some point, I started requesting comments a lot more at some point when I noticed that there weren’t many. In fact, and I probably shouldn’t even give these numbers away, but as of the time that I am typing this up, I currently have 692 posts (not counting this one, and unfortunately unable to be certain of how many of those are reblogged articles), 175,112 views, and yet only 536 comments. And guess who the two top commenters are? Myself and N. Harmonik, who I would like to remind is, in fact, my proofreader, and has actually posted a couple of articles on this blog. And even N. Harmonik has rarely commented without me having to directly ask her.

Now, when I say all of this, I’m not trying to guilt trip anyone. In fact, the point is that, once upon a time, I might’ve been tempted to do so. No, instead I’d like to simply explain why I want comments: The thing is, I want people to give me feedback on the stuff I write. Agree with my viewpoints, disagree, talk about stuff I missed on certain subjects, maybe even suggest other stuff I can talk about, or hell, give me tips on how I could improve in my writing. After all, I wanna someday transition into writing for a living, and how can I improve to the point where I can do that if no one tells me how? That said, I don’t want anyone to leave comments solely because they feel obligated to do so. I just wish I knew what to do to make people care more about what I do.

Anyway, that’s all I wanted to say. Leave comments, don’t, whatever. I just want you all to know how I felt about this. Ja né!

N. Harmonik’s Favourite 5 – 5 Favourite (Wacky) Oggy and the Cockroaches Episodes

Time to give my dear friend another break! It’s for his own good and I need to rectify something. Last time, I only focused on the cutest episodes. But Oggy and the Cockroaches is primarily about slapstickery, wanton chaos! What kind of fan would I be if I didn’t showcase the zaniest episodes?! So, without further ado…

1: The Ghost Hunter

Oggy’s viewing of a late-night horror film is interrupted by the roaches trying to scare him. Apparently, the only thing their species isn’t immune to is getting smashed by a frying pan several times while hiding in a roasted chicken because that’s what actually kills them! Although Oggy has the decency to give those ornery insects a proper burial, that isn’t enough to stop them from coming back as ghosts. Naturally (er, so to speak), the trio gets to haunting our hapless cat through illusions, reality warping or both. At one point, they even make copies of themselves and yell “Boo” at Oggy… while he’s dancing on an illusory stage. *ba-dum-ching!* Unable to take anymore (and perhaps afraid that an attempted exorcism will only incite their wrath), Oggy retrieves the cockroaches’ bodies and resurrects them using a spell book. Surprisingly grateful (maybe they missed being able to eat), Dee Dee, Marky and Joey call a temporary truce and watch the now-laughable horror movie with Oggy… Only for remnants of the enchantment to bring the movie monsters to life!

2: A Night At The Opera

Did you know cockroaches can sing? Well, Dee Dee certainly can! One evening, the insect approaches Jack, who’s about to perform as a tenor in a production of “Carmen”, with the offer of becoming his partner. Egotistical as ever, Jack simply trashes Dee Dee and his offer. So his brothers basically tell Dee Dee that, if he can’t join them, beat them! Thus Dee Dee makes like a puny Phantom of the Opera and wreaks havoc on Jack’s act. Instead of a chandelier, he drops various props that ultimately knock both Oggy and Jack out of the theatre and into a bank which gets them arrested. To add insult to injury, the jailed cats have to watch the roach’s performance because the police are viewing it on TV and they enjoy it so much, they sing along!

3: Hide and Sick

What’s better than a punny title? A punny title that describes the plot! Oggy comes down with a cold so his cousin goes out and buys some medicine. Unfortunately, Oggy hates needles even more than being ill so he continually conceals himself by using camouflage; have you ever seen a character disguise themself as a stair runner? What’s more, the titular cat’s sneezes have the force of a hurricane; hence, whenever Jack gets close enough, he and his serum are sent flying. Thanks to Finagle’s Law, the syringe (which increases in size each time Jack buys a new one) invariably ends up getting injected into Bob through his posterior. A few beatdowns later, Oggy is seemingly cured whereas Jack contracts the cold. With the tables turned, Oggy gleefully tries to cure Jack and the cockroaches (who had been taking a backseat to most of the antics throughout the episode) get in on the act!

Speaking of backseats…

4: Abandoned Cockroaches

The two cats decide to take a long drive to the coast for a bit of sun, sand and surf. The three cockroaches have the audacity to sit in the back of the car and expect Jack and Oggy to be okay with that! Then Oggy gives his cousin an idea: Why throw Dee Dee, Marky and Joey out now when you can throw them out many kilometres from home? And so the gang are allowed to tag along. Amazingly, the roaches are, for the most part, well-behaved. It’s the felines’ desire to get away from them that causes the majority of the mayhem! Oggy and Jack’s efforts to separate themselves from Dee Dee, Marky and Joey become increasingly desperate and ridiculous (especially in light of the latter’s relative lack of pranks), culminating in them getting themselves lost in a forest. By episode’s end, the cockroaches are sunbathing and girlwatching while the cats are scrounging for grubs.

5: Mind the Giant

One night while rummaging through a trash can, Marky uncovers a bag of tree seeds and chooses to keep them for himself. The next morning, after gorging on them, the tallest roach and his brothers are astonished to find that he’s gotten even taller! The drawbacks soon become clear to Oggy, Joey and Dee Dee as Marky’s increase in size leads to an increase in appetite; he hogs all the food the roaches snatch, usually while pounding them in the process. It isn’t long before he’s as big as Oggy and Bob and taking their vittles too. When the luckless feline goes broke from providing for the now-gigantic cockroach, (…Well, would you refuse to feed someone who’s bigger than your house?), Marky heads into the nearby city to steal a meal or twelve. The ensuing robbery lands Marky in prison (I’m guessing he realized his largeness couldn’t protect him from guns). Luckily, the bag of seeds had been discovered by Oggy, Dee Dee and Joey so they have a solution: bonsai seeds! One gulp later, Marky shrinks back to his normal size… then shrinks some more! Upon seeing that their brother is now only waist-high, Dee Dee and Joey go from joyful to vengeful and begin chasing Marky as Oggy guffaws, having apparently planned that.

And there you have it! If you wanna watch more episodes (Wait, did I say “If?”), there is now an official channel on YouTube! Sure, finding OatC episodes on that website is extremely easy but the ones that the official channel uploads twice a week have the audio properly aligned with the visuals and are HD, uncut and uncensored! …Well, except for the episode “(Un)Happy Camper”; after a hullaballoo in which a kid spotted the image of a topless, female human inside the camping trailer, Xilam replaced it with an image of the campground. Did you know most European cartoons are a bit more liberal with children’s content than America ones are?

Anyway, leave a comment…or else! Kawoom!

…-t on my blog… … … … …GODDAMMIT, AIBO!!!
