This is a screenshot from episode 44 of Fresh Precure, demonstrating some rather noticeable symptoms that have come to be known collectively in the anime-viewing community as “QUALITY.” Just that. It doesn’t stand for anything, but don’t forget to hold shift whenever you type it. That’s important. Continue reading
With how I’ve been posting for the past few months, this post really doesn’t change anything. No reason to keep harboring illusions of posting something every week when I can just mention it in passing as I give you your usual dose of QUALITY screenshots, though, right? Long story short: I give up on posting every week. It doesn’t really work for me when I’m actually being productive in other areas of my life.
I’ll always end up thinking of something to say about anime as long as I’m watching anime. I just don’t want the self-imposed pressure of posting weekly right now. So see you the next time I decide to post, which might actually be next week anyway.
I took this screenshot many moons ago so I don’t remember what’s actually going on here, but anything that causes your eyes to undergo such a sudden enlargement is clearly not safe. Shouldn’t trust people who only have three fingers on one hand, anyway. At least not in anime. In real life I think you can, although as a child I learned not to anyway because this one guy liked pretending the stump (he had only lost like half of that finger) was my nose. You know, instead of the usual trick of using your thumb or whatever to fool kids into thinking you’ve got their nose.
I would also like to apologize for the random unannounced lack of posts. I haven’t felt like watching anime that isn’t currently airing, much less actually writing reviews. I’ll try to think of something else to write in their place until I feel like writing them again.
In the first screenshot, well, that’s just plain crazy. Your thumb wouldn’t be on the inside when your palms are out! The second screenshot is somewhat deceptive because her left hand is totally normal. But I question if the things her right thumb is doing are possible for healthy people. It might be a little late to be asking this since Smile Precure is over now, and all, but… do any of you readers happen to know a good specialist in Märchenland who would have any idea how to help her? … Does Märchenland even have specialists? If they had specialists, surely they would have already noticed their queen’s affliction and helped her…
I’m taking a break for all of November. Don’t think this is some scary slippery slope towards me quitting blogging forever. I did, after all, do this last year. It’s partially a break for NaNoWriMo (which you should be doing because everyone cool is doing it and you don’t want to be uncool, do you?) and also because NaNoWriMo is a good excuse to take a break from blogging. Because writing for Spherical Cows takes up all my time and energy every day of every week. Yes.
I may post one thing during November, as I did last year, but I don’t know yet. If I do, expect it to be worthwhile. No, it won’t be a Suite Precure review. I promise.
Those who follow me on Twitter might have heard something about Kouga and Eden learning how to extend the length of their arms (to increase the strength of their punches, of course). Here’s photographic evidence, because I know nobody else is watching it. This was on screen for a non-trivial amount of time, so no excuses. It’s just plain silly. It also wasn’t the only time it happened, and if you look close enough it appears that Eden has only three fingers on his left hand in this shot.
I know, the only QUALITY you’ve been getting from me lately is from Saint Seiya Omega. But how can I resist it when there’s so much gold like this?!
That is not how you eat with chopsticks! Why do I have to be the one to tell you this? I’ve only eaten with chopsticks four times in my entire life! You are not the only one who doesn’t know how to use eating utensils, true. But that will not make me forgive you, or any of the rest of these people. Because eating etiquette is serious business.

If you’ve seen the original series, then of course you have additional examples of this fact, notably one involving eyes. Saint Seiya Omega stays true to its predecessor. This time, as pictured, we have the Saint Yuna kicking an enemy into next week. I mean, I am all for kicking enemies into next week, but the fact remains that she’s only able to do this by dislocating her hip. Is that really neccessary? It must have hurt her quite a bit, even if it did pop right back into place…
And he says you did it! Tell me the truth. Did you chop off his index finger? Did you break all the bones in his thumb and curve it in such an unnatural way that it looks like a hook? Did you?! It’s too bad this was actually from a scene that was supposed to be serious and kind of a big deal… Just… Not with those injuries. He just got zapped a little. That’s all.
Note: This post is a side effect of guilt. That’s right, guilt. You people using Google need to stop finding this blog searching for Saint Seiya Omega. I mean it is one of my most common search terms, second only to “heartcatch precure review” (I guess we all know what this blag is really about). And this is like, the third time I’ve ever even mentioned the show here. And I’m still not writing anything substantial about it! Oh well, at least I’ve got a picture from it now.
