The earliest anime I remember watching when I was a little
kid was Gigantor
I was too young to know the storyline, heck, even know what
the show was about. All I know was a cool flying robot plus
some people trying to make out something.
The next anime I got hooked on was Voltes V.
show started around 5:30PM, although it was only a 30-
minute show, every second of it was like an hour to me. The
Voltes V show was the number one kid show,
beating other non-anime cartoons like superman, batman and
robin. I don't know, but the way how the scenes were taken,
it sure was totally different, though. Maybe I could come
up with a 3D game similar to the storyline of Voltes V, it
just might bring those childhood memories back. Just
downloaded the main theme song
, though sung in japanese they
sounded pretty good.
Here is another website
containing more information about Voltes V and its creator
Nagahama Tadao, basically, the father of the great Anime
Robots. Some video Clips can be found here
Well, of course, there was
. It was also one of my favorite show, too.
Not all anime cartoons were good, though. One of them
belonging to the cheezy types is Mekanda
. The storyline was kind of stinky, I guess.
That's probably why I avoided it like the plague.
Fast forward to the present, seeing these kids watching
anime cartoons reminded me of how I was back then. This
time, though, the quality and detail is absolutely
pretty high. One example are the Liger
, they look like real robots moving in fluid
motion, no kidding.
Is Greed Good?
While we were having leisure, a small debate started about
how the street's motto of Greed Is Good is going to create
problems for third world and developing countries. I argued
the cons of it, claiming it will re-colonize most of the
third-world, probably the developing as well. While some
may argue greed is essential in the pursuit of profit, I
countered uncontrolled greed is synonymous to slavery,
though. The exchange of ideas lasted for several minutes,
each one getting a different view of the subject. It was
quite an interesting topic to talk about, though. Might
write a simple article about it later.
