    They seem to hint that this somehow may not be the end for the Undertaker. As in this might be a feud for a bit longer.

    *shrug* Some people I know think the new gen is awesome but I don't. *shrug* Daniel Bryan has had to prove himself big time to Triple H since while Bryan has all the skills, the submissions and the discipline, he is nowhere near the typical body/persona of a wrestler. But I think the way WWE burnt themselves in recent months with the return of Batista (yeah, did you know they brought HIM back too?!) and what Orton's been up to, things were set for Bryan to get a title run instead.

    As for CM Punk - believe it or not, he says he's taking a long break in his mid 30s. Which is a real shame since CM Punk was one of the few who could legit do the whole package. From what I can find, Punk last performed at this year's Royal Rumble then said to Vince 'I'm going home'. Then he didn't appear for a few events he was listed as performing at. He then contacted Vince saying that 'When I said I was going home, I meant it.' From the sounds of it, after his long run, Punk's character had been mistreated for months and he was getting burnt out. It somewhat mirrors how Stone Cold felt before he called it quits. You know how I said Daniel Bryan got the title? Here's what's interesting - CM Punk was the one who was supposed to verse Triple H at WM30, not Daniel Bryan. And the Heavyweight title was supposed to only be between Orton and Batista. But with Punk being permanently fed up and leaving, that meant Triple H was forced to switch things to Daniel Bryan. So a person they heavily built up a couple of years ago. Also, Punk said in an interview he did at Portland Comi Con, he thought Daniel Bryan should main event WM 30, he is fed up with the writers and his body is worn out. If he's like that in his mid-30s, you just wonder how those guys in that business are being treated.


    Onto better things - how about this April season? I've got six shows (One Week Friends, Mushishi S2, The World is Still Beautiful, Rowdy Sumo Wrestler Matsutaro, Brynhildr, Kindaichi R) I'm sticking with. And I feel I will for the journey. This season is throwing up some pleasant surprises for me. I know the popular stuff will be Love Live S2, Knights of Sidonia and Irregular at Magic High School, but I'm not interested in them. I have a season to be invested in. A few months ago I felt this was the one. And my best anime friend is agreeing with me about this season. He, who has been jaded and burnt out for quite a while, is with me on the titles he is going to stick with and he has genuine hope for this season. Like, I guess you find a title or two a season. It's rare to find five or more to like. Or it is for people like me.

    I know...why Lesnar....

    I think it's to do with what will inevitably happen either later this year or ealry 2015.

    Kurt Angle said in an interview that he definitely wants to return to the WWE. He said he has 'unfinished business'. And in interviews he did after leaving WWE, Kurt did say the one person he felt at the time that was still worth wrestling there was Brock Lesnar. So yeah, with people like Lesnar returning and with someone like Daniel Bryan there, as well as the sudden slide of TNA, I think Kurt wants back in to WWE for the final part of his career. An Angle-Lesnar feud is obvious. I'd imagine Daniel Bryan would be another. Not sure who else because I haven't watched any WWE in close to a year. And after 'The Streak' ending in this way, I don't want to.

    The only good that came out of WM30 was that Daniel Bryan ended up with the Heavyweight belt. If there is one person there at present that deserves it more than anyone, it's Daniel Bryan.

The problem is when a lot of the elitists are actually stupid people watching smart anime to make themselves feel smart, or so they think. Of course this kind of thing can only work in a self-affirming (aka mob thinking) fashion in which a community of self appointed elitists define quality. This isn't just true in anime, but almost every hobby really. To make this distinction, this group needs to raise itself above "popular opinion", but yes, in the end they create their own brand of popular opinions.

    There's a small chance people from this group know what they're talking about, but in my anecdotal experience like any group of fools needs to demean others in order to give them credibility. I've received plenty of private messages from pretentious hygiene products telling me why I am totally wrong for bashing their deep work or liking something pedestrian. Of course, most can't really explain what they think being the simplest of sentences, so there's that.

    Tl;dr Don't be a hipster.
    You know, this kind of place does exist. It's called anidb. Reading few posts there makes you lose faith in the anime community faster than hearing about Infinite Stratos' sales figures. Because at least, "those godamned otakus" support the industry in their own way. While "those hipsters" sucks the fun out of the hobby.

    Today I learnt a bunch of people in the local anime circles all think Nasu works are pure H-material.....

    What the hell....

    I'm beginning to think I'm of a very small minority that actually appreciates Nasu's writing. People seem to either want lashings of supernatural action or amusing sex.

    *facepalm*

    God damn, there's so much bad fanservice out there. Touch me and I'll beat the crap out of you!
    You are about to move into areas of the anime industry with wonders you cannot possibly imagine. And terrors to freeze your soul.
