Pinkie Ponders: How Could Humans Transform in Dragon Ball

I have been pretty bedridden the last couple of days, which let me catch up with some games, tv series, anime and my thoughts… one of these thoughts went to Dragon Ball. I saw a bit about Krillin and wondered.. what would the next level of evolution look like for him. So I decided to let my brain come up with a way humans could transform.. and here is what I came up with.

Step 1: Pinkie’s Guideline for Transformation

So we won’t be doing this!

Now how do I tackle this problem?! Well first of all we need to make the transformation a functional one! Of course I am delving in the realm of fan fiction here but I would not want to turn humans into something they are not. So no giant form, or them suddenly becoming rubber or something. It would also need to do something. I can say humans get a 10x power boost and their hair turns purple and skin  turns pale.. but a 10x power boost will not make any difference and besides that there are possibilities to just use Kaioken for those levels of output. The tricky part here is that we can easily not actually provide a transformation for humans themselves. After all we could just say humans and saiyans are clearly compatible as they can interbreed, we may have the same forefathers and humans have a saiyan-like transformation as well. It would not even be that far fetched. 

No trash Gohan! Best of both worlds Gohan will rock!

This would not really allow humans to stand on their own though. Not only do Saiyans already have a faster base growth, there is also issues like Zenkai boosts, the power boost Saiyans get after they have been defeated. Humans don’t have that so just giving humans a golden form of their own.. would not feel right. Then there also would be the fact that humans getting blond hair and blue eyes and calling themselves a person which has transcended humanity is a bit iffy! Yet neither are the main reasons I opted out of this route! No .. the real reason is Gohan! Well him , Goten and Trunks to be exact. Hybrid Saiyans are made a big deal… However in my eyes the show does very little to establish humanity in Gohan, Goten and Trunks. It is merely reflected in their personality. If we give humans a transformation however.. I want it to be able to coexist with a Super-Saiyan transformation. This will mean that there will be big changes in the story and Goku and Vegeta might just take a back-seat towards the Hybrids later on.

We can’t mess (too much) with the iconic moments!

The third factor I am taking into consideration is that it has to keep humans relevant to the story. During the Saiyan Saga, humans were not relevant.. and only during the Namek Arc did Krillin have a few fights where he would be relevant. After that, it all goes down the drain fast. I do not say humans are weak but clearly they can not top the Saiyans in terms of sheer power. We must find a way to equal the playing ground at least a bit. Of course the series only started to be be transformation heavy on Namek, and I do not want to make the Super Saiyan moment less Iconic.. so transformations have to come after that. Yes.. most likely there will be gold! As golden Frieza is an ultimate form as well I might as well keep the theme up a bit. Either way… it does mean that this power is more or less stumbled upon.. as if a human had extra abilities people were aware off, it would have come up earlier. 

Transformation has to be show in Manga and sell toys!

The fourth and final factor I will need to take into consideration is that this transformation works both in Manga and in Anime, Dragon Ball is a Multi Media franchise after all. So stuff like an eye colour change, or the aura taking a faintly other shape will not be enough we have to make something up that  people can instantly see and go like “oh heck yeah Krillin is using his transformation”  Something that looks badass but also is unique to humans. That was quite a task..but I think I have come up with a great solution, that feels very in line with humans and martial arts alike.

Step 2:  Coming up with “type” of transformation

Clearly Humans would not use Transformations as restraint!

Now to make a unique transformation and keep humans relevant let’s take a look at all the other races that we know that do have transformations and how they work. First of all there are of course the Saiyans, who transform by anger/emotion. The power works as an enhancement. It boosts their power level by several factors, the amount of energy needed and wasted depends on what form they are in.  Then there is the Frieza race, who transforms based on mostly innate talent. The race has access to extreme raw power and the transformations are sealed as it were to keep one from being destroyed by their own power. The transformation works like a metamorphosis and is reached by unleashing power.

Our transformation has to be cooler than that!

The Namekian transformation is lesser known and it literally allows a Namekian to grow. As Namekian’s do “grow” as plants and are genderless this makes sense. It mirrors them well.  Then there are the androids, who in some cases transform.  Cell, Android 13 and Android 21 had access to transformations.. and while all work in slightly different ways, the concept of their transformation is Augmentation. The biggest asset of this transformation is to give them a higher reserve of power.. it is additive transformation. Meaning it is the sum of several parts not the multiplication of one. The Majin transformation basically is exactly the same as that of the Androids, one adds parts to gain that parts strength.

Our transformation ,should probably be less heavy on Trucker Hat!

Saiyans seem to be the allrounders,  that get better at what they already do. The Frieza Race gets more destructive as they transform and the androids, even Cell are slightly more defensively focussed. Android 17 is known for his barriers, but Cell uses these as well, 19 and Gero absorbed energy in a defensive capacity as well. Namekians trough the series from Z onwards mostly work as guides. Piccolo is more so a teacher and a Mentor rather than a fighter. Kami has always been a guide and Dende works as a healer. Majins are a bit of a mirror match fighter idea. While we later also see other transformations like magical girls nearly all of the transformations fall either in the “healer, Fighter or Tank”  archetypes. So with humans I wanted to go with the fourth option… support.  Clearly the show is about Goku, Gohan Vegeta and the likes and that will not change. So for humans to have a transformation it would need to  be one that can help the main characters.. but that also can turn Gohan into an absolute beast of a warrior.

Pokémon is always a good analogy!

How do we do this?! Well Saiyans are a race of Barbarians, a race of soldiers and warriors they grow through fighting. Namekians work like plants, they grow like plants.. so how do humans grow like earthlings? We evolve. We adapt. This adaptability is shown as the factor that keeps humans in the fight. Even in Dragon Ball Super this is shown. Roshi and Krillin perform fairly well as fighters in the tournament of power.. (as well as Tenshinhan)   because they fight smartly. So the human transformation will allow them to do that.. it will allow them to “evolve”. As such it will trigger in situations of near death.. Like a Zenkai boost.. but before the actual injury! If you are about to die or confronted with death you can “evolve” It can be explained as the reason why women can suddenly move steel beams when trying to save their baby from a burning home, and how people escape from near death situations by the sheer will to survive. Darwinism and the will to live triggers this transformation. So it might not be to much of a surprise that the first human we see transform in the series would be Yamcha.

Step 3: How does it Look, How does it work?!

My first Human Transformation!

The transformation will happen during the beginning of the Android Saga, when Dr Gero finds Yamcha and starts draining his life.  We flash back to how Yamcha was killed by  the Saibaman which now instead of a meme will act like a trigger. Yamcha, Grabbed by Gero finds himself in a fairly similar situation.  He is grabbed in a hold and can sense death is coming. However this time his body reacts instinctively. The Dr is draining his Ki but suddenly that Ki begins to take shape. It turns golden and rather than just being a field of energy it takes a shape much closer to Yamcha’s body.. as it forms two extra arms. Golden  translucent arms that Yamcha can move as his own.. and he can fire an energy blast with them?! Yamcha uses this ability to escape, damaging Dr Gero, who now is forced to retreat a bit earlier. Goku catches up sensing Yamcha’s Ki rise and the rest of the story would follow the normal trend for a while.. but a surprised Yamcha stands there with an evolved Ki Aura.

Bodhisattva, the deity of compassion

Humans adapt… and even in D&D or in most other fiction they are always depicted as a race that is good at fitting in.. at adapting to new environments to overcome new dangers.  So since the Ki of other races reacts to their state of being it makes sense that that of a human would be as well. Grounded in the concept of evolution, while it would not evolve the human itself, one skilled enough with Ki to create energy blasts can use their own live energy to evolve their life energy.. to adapt it. These transformations I will base on the Bodhisattva.. the goddess of compassion. The Saiyan transformation has some potential overlap to Chakra and I thought it would be fun to keep a eastern influence to the transformation as well, that works well with the schooling in the Dragon Ball world.  Being the voice of compassion and sympathy these transformations do not focus on raw power but allow a fighter to use his own strength to overcome and adapt.

Tien gets the more boring transformation but Japan doesn’t like Tien anyway!

Later forms could include a third eye, linking back to Tien’s history and his people never fully closing that off, that unlike Ultra Instinct would work more like Tsuna from Hitman’s Reborn Hyper Intuition allowing you to see when blinded, or allowing you to see enemy weaknesses. A third form could be a flaming aura that could punish an enemy from engaging in Melee too much, which once again seems to be a weakness of the humans. Divine Hands, Divine Eye and Divine Fury could later potentially lead into humans adapting it to god ki and potentially Ultra instinct as well.

Gohan using all three human transformations

Best off all.. this would all work on Gohan. When Cell broke his arm when Gohan saved Vegeta from perfect Cell, instead of just learning Super Saiyan 2, he could have learned Divine hands as well..showing Gohan is indeed.. not just like his father he is human as well.. wielding their transformation. Divine Eye he could awaken in his fight with Basil, in the Tournament of Power Exhibition Match. Divine Fury Gohan could learn either during the Buu Arc to shield himself from being absorbed by Majin Buu.. OR during the Tournament of Power when he fights Dyspo.. who mostly relies on Melee attacks.Unlike other transformations, humans can get theirs in random order. Krillin for example would probably Awaken Divine Wrath first, Tien Divine Eye and Yamcha like explained would be the perfect candidate for Divine hands!

Firing one beam and hitting your opponent with in the back with another seems powerful?!

Being able to shoot two beams might not seem very powerful, but Humans have the ability to bend their Ki beams, so shooting two could lead to a pincer attack. A Ki beam is always higher than the power level of the human wielding it as was revealed in several magazines.  A double Masenko fired at the same target might not do much.. but two bending Kamehameha’s striking from the front and back.. would have HUGe benefits.  Looking for a weak spot in an attacking would allow humans to use techniques like the destructo disc or Yamcha spirit ball to be way more precise and effective sealing punches away works great against henchman .. and let’s be honest here, the humans will still be fighting the henchman still!

The fights during the Moro Arc could be super interesting with transformations!

A lot of techniques would have implications during the Moro Arc as well, humans could use Divine Eye to work a bit more in an exposition fashion so Beerus and Whis could actually stick to their principals of not meddling. Divine Wrath can be used to shield against the new Android introduced in that arc and Divine hands can help Gohan use his new shield technique.. while also taking potshots at enemies from behind said shield!  It will keep humans relevant without changing the power levels to much! 

So how would you give humans transformations in Dragon Ball?!  Have you ever thought about it? What did you think about my idea? Let me know in the comments!  Now I am gonna see if I can develop Divine pillows, so I can take the best naps! Shine on my little lights! Oyasumi!

Pinkie’s Fantastic Five: Movie Themes

Hello Little Lights, it is time for another post! Mallow tagged me for something quite awesome! Thanks Mallow! Visit Mallow! He listed some of his favourite Movie Themes. A top  four!  However 4 is an unlucky number and I am unlucky already..so I decided to make it five!  I always feel a bit stressed when making a top 5 as it basically forces me to rank things against each other and maybe other movie themes would get sad! There are so many that are great! So instead of doing top 5, I decided to change this to Fantastic Five! A random grab of five things that are super awesome! Not ranked and maybe not even my favourite 5! Just five I want to talk to you about today!

This post will feature 5 videos and they are best Listened to while reading their respective Paragraphs! So please visit this post on my actual site!

Power Rangers The Movie (1995): Go Go Power Rangers

With a guitar Riff that immediately takes you back to the 90’s you know what is heading your way when you watch this movie!  Yet.. these first notes also surprise you.. where is that iconic sound.. of impending thunder and lighting, that guitar roll that is so linked to the show!
It follows soon!  In this day and age I think this is the best rendition of the theme because of those few opening notes!  Thus qualifying as a movie theme! As the series never had those first few Riffs!  I always wanted to be a Power Ranger, and to an extent I would still like to be! Not only is this one of THE best childhood themes out there.. it also also a theme of escapism to me! I’d be able to unwind with Power Rangers.. hoping that one day I might find the strength to stand up to my bullies! That I would morph into a more confident person that can stand up to them.. and that I did!  I never expected to grow up as a Pink Moth.. but at least I have a great idea of what my Zord would be!  “Mothra Pink Ranger Power”

Dragon Ball Super Broly: Blizzard

So a re-dub of a song that is about a movie.. that once again is a series! However this song really is unique to this movie! The music is so different from what you usually hear! It’s so unique and Megami’s textual interpretation shows how well she knows the source material!  I love how she wrote the song from Broly’s perspective. While I prefer subs in anime.. I really like dubbed music so I can understand the lyrics and while there is an orginal english version I have not found it as audible as Megami’s version! That doesn’t stop the music from this track to be pretty amazing though!  I really like it. Dragon Ball Super Broly is the most expensive movie I ever went to! By FAR! Not only did I pay top dollar to see it 4D.. which was amazing to have steam going off around you and your chair shaking at powerful punches, but I also travelled half the country to find a theater that ran a 4d version in Japanese. It was a great memory and the song to me reflects that.

Catch me if you Can : Catch me if you Can

If I have a favourite movie, it will probably be this one! Steven Spielberg did a great job of telling the tale of Frank Abignail Junior.  The casting was amazing, the atmosphere so fun and it is just an extraordinary tale! The main theme is unique and has this elusive quality!  Just when you think you get the melody it slightly shifts!  And that is exactly what this movie is about so when I first realised that I was like OH MY ARCEUS!  I love this! It might not be a thing I can bob my head to but I can flail it from right to left in a seizure like fashion as I do know this melody quite well by now!  It is just a very fascinating theme to me! A;also for some reason I really like movies featuring Tom Hanks and Airports! I am not sure why! I love the Terminal as well! But that one doesn’t have too much of an amazing song! It also misses the best knock knock joke ever!

Children of Dune: Summon the Worms

I am really messing this one up! Not only is this song from a Mini series rather than a movie, I also did not get it from said mini series. I actually know this song from another tv series where it was used as the title sequence. It was a dutch show called Peking Express, which basically is our translation for Orient Express. It was a show very similar to the great race and it involved people having to hitchhike from Moscow to Beijing. With some special challenges along the way. It was a great show with an even better opening. The drums in the song are timed with the beating of some sort of chinese tower at the end of the trip! Would your favourite couple make it to the finish line.. it got you pumped and hyped, and then I watched Children of Dune with a young James McAvoy …It was not what I had expected.
Dune.. to me .. is kinda boring! Not gonna lie! Luckily it will always have this amazing soundtrack! I know it has a lot of fans but it went way too political with me! I just wish my eyes were as blue as Leo Artreides! 

The Rock : Hummel gets the Rockets

Golly gosh I love this music Track! It would probably be my favourite Theme of all times. There just so much to unpack! So dynamic, so epic!  And once again, I fell in love with this not because of a movie but because of a tv series! In this case it was Expeditie Robinson. A show originally from Sweden that in America got adapted to Survivor. Sixteen people get dropped on an Island and have to survive and determine who is worthy to stay on the island. I loved this show for many many years, but at one point the scheming element got so out of hand that people could get extra votes and negative votes. At one point 8 people were left but 32 votes were cast, to kick the most deserving survivor off because he was too big of a threat. I don’t mind casting out a treat.. but the episode was so convoluted and sucky that I dropped the series after. Luckily the movie is still pretty good so if I want to hear the theme song I can still watch Nicolas Cage and Sean Connery break into Alcatraz to stop some sparkly ball missile treat!  That’s the worst kind of missile treat!

Tags

So Mallow tagged four people to do this challenge! It’s a bit of his own thing and this is not meant as a Blog Challenge I think… however! I am going to try something out! I am challenging my STAFF to do this tag as well!

Periwinkle, Sunny, Kuro and Indigo, I challenge you to come up with a list of movie themes that is as good as mine!… or Mallows! and like always my normal rules of tagging apply!
Mention that you want to be nominated and I will make it look as if you were nominated all along! I look good, you get a tag.. we both win! And with that I shall be off for now! I hope you enjoyed some great movie soundtracks with me! Shine on my little lights! Oyasumi!

Digimon Adventure Episode 18: The Battle in Tokyo Against Orochimon

Hello Little Lights, while I am trying to recover from my health issues I decided to start getting back into blogging slowly by tackling some easy to handle content! It is time to continue picking up those anime I was watching again! That way when I am forced to stay in bed, I  can at least get something done!  So yay!  We start with picking up Digimon again. Since becoming a VBlogger though, this will be more of a reaction blog to the episode than an actual review!

The First Act

I chose a bad time to burn out on watching anime as episode 16 is a direct continuation of episode 15, the enemy at the end  evolved  into Orochimon, from eyesmon! Luckily I am quite aware of the “digidex” and which Digimon evolves into what.. and how! So I did not feel lost! It would be kind of bad if I got lost in a kid show anyway I guess!  Anyway in the last episode the chosen kids fought Eyesmon in the fake Tokyo and after defeating it , the creature evolved. They had discovered that Eyesmon was responsible for the Tokyo blackouts  and this week we kind of see why?!

Orochimon has the power of EMP roars, which is treated as something way more serious than it should be… I loved how Digimon up until this point was very cleverly written and once again this power up does connect to everything going on in a very thematic way, but just like the last episode it feels a bit cheaper than before. It fits but it’s less earned. Kochiro’s laptop only flickers a bit while in the real Tokyo suddenly all sorts of light bulbs begin to burst as it is stated that the EMP roar affects the real Tokyo in the same way. Then why did Koshiro’s laptop not go poof?! The eight heads of Orochimon over-power the chosen ones and it is time to flee. Yamato however wants to solve this now, for a reason that has yet to be revealed as I react to it! If I were to guess I would say this is where Takeru and maybe Kairi come in…after all the group is with 6 right now… perhaps they need… 8?!

The first act ends with the party becoming separated again. Yamato and Taichi end up alone  due to the recklessness of Yamato. Orichimon does some shenanigans with water that destroy his “dimension”   Since they are in his dimension now, that is located more closely to the real world time flows differently here than in the rest of the digital world or something as is explained by Koshiro who works like a fine exposition tool, when the other four are discussing their lost battle and try to come up with a strategy. It is nice to see the four non leaders together and them dealing with problems that come with that. Without Yamato and Taichi we see the group depicted as slightly more fearful and less motivated, as a group should be without their leaders. Morale has dropped!  So the episode handles that pretty well! 

The Second Act

We begin the second act with a super lame visual of Taichi, Yamato and their Digimon sitting in some sort of underground location that looks quite similar to the location where the others were.  However the details of this picture are laughingly sparse. I get that it is hard to draw in details from a distance, but if that would be the problem I would not have chosen this shot! It lingers for a fair few seconds as wel so it kind of killed the gravity of the situation for me! It just looks a bit to yankee for me and I let out a chuckle rather than being concerned for their welfare. It is followed by a rather cool visual of Orochimon’s heads creeping past the location searching for them. I like how the sky is coloured white.. like empty digital space rather than some gloomy cloud that reflects their emotional situation. Normally in nearly every scenario.. in a situation like this the sky would be ashen  to reflect the despair .. but here the rules of the digital world stay in place and it doesn’t just start to rain to enhance emotions. So we are looking into a pretty somewhat strange sky!  It helps sell the alien world thing a bit more!  Something this show does quite a bit better than the original!

We then get a lot of focus on Hikari and Takeru, which makes me believe we may say two new chosen ones soon!  Hikari even sees an actual digimon! The mother of the family makes a very VERY strange decision though.  Because her car is glitching out a bit and stuck in traffic  she decides to abandon it and take the train back home?! What?!  Are you even allowed to abandon your car in the middle of the road like that?! And obviously people will stampede towards the train station.. so why would you let your daughter exit the car in a dangerous situation like this. Stuff just exploded not too long ago! Not so great parenting there! Of course Hikari gets trampled and separated from her mother. Also why is Takeru being left home alone during a black-out!  These parents are not very good! 

The second act concludes with a great team bonding moment from the chosen ones! The leaderless group says what they appreciate from their Digimon and tell each other stories on how they have grown and how they should not be scared.. because they have come a long way since coming to this world. We see Joe take on his Faux Leader persona and how it cheers the others up!  It is very wholesome to see and it makes sense! He wants  to be the Senpai and now he can when everyone is at a low!  We also see the strength of Sora and how proud she is of Biyomon, we see how Koshiro thinks his digimon is the coolest and we see Mimi tease Palmon that she is only the prettiest Digimon when she evolves. I loved these moments! It is followed by a strong moment of bonding  between Taichi and Yamato as well. Where the rest of the group kind of at times tried to slow down Yamato for reason, Taichi understands that sometimes you just have to step up, so when Yamato wants to fight to save his brother, even with chances not in their favour Taichi not only lets him he joins him!.

The Third Act

The third act and thus the climax of this episode is the battle against Orochimon! It quickly becomes clear that Takeru and Hikari won’t join the squad in this episode. However, I am beginning to see more and more similarities to the first episode. We have an enemy that evolves several times, a fight between a superior force in a realm that is somewhere between the digital world and our one.. and Yamato and Taichi who are the big focus. The rest does show up just a little into the fight.. but they accept that in this fight they are the support. It’s left up to their two leaders, which I think is a fitting end for the “Tokyo Blackout Arc”.  I suspect however that this fight will not conclude it.. something will happen here that brings back Takeru and Hikari to the digital world before it is over. I am sure of it!

The fight itself is quite nice as well, after a few failed attempts from Yamato and Taichi to do it alone, they do realise they need the group! Yet at the same time that group also realises they lack the sheer offensive dominance the other two have.. so rather than just fighting along, they distract the metal heads of Orochimon that it uses for defence.. Zudomon also shows some defensive skills, spinning his hammer around like Thor!  Kind of cool and nice to see everyone take slightly different roles in this fight.  Energy attacks do not seem to work on the snake’s water blasts so MetalGreymon and AtlurKabuterimon take a Melee approach that seems to work.  Sometimes a weaker attack is better than just the main attack! The classic show fell into that trap where everyone basically ended up spamming one attack! So these fights feel much more alive.

The fight is concluded by MetalGreymon… but hey Taichi has the goggles and it’s a digimon rule. Everyone got a moment again and even with Takeru and Hikari getting scenes here and there, it never feels too thin spread. Everyone is there and has personality, the music, the digivolutions , it all synergises once again and the battle ends on a high note!  We know have seen how a single Ultimate Digimon can still be on par with 6, so even Devimon being just a Champion for now seems possible..because unlike the old series there seems to be another force behind this all. Like how we have seen Omnimon in the first three episodes.. something is pushing them to this level.. and now yet again.. even after killing the Digimon, something changes. A new countdown shows up..towards the destruction of Tokyo.. just like in the first three episodes, and I am excited! I know I am watching this late..and not maybe not that many are into this series to begin with.. but I had fun again! I just needed to recharge my battery a bit!

For those who do not use Twitter, I have been currently having a lot of health issues that is completing consuming my energy pool or making me forced to stay in bed. As this is going on I can’t reliably put out blogging content, though I am slowly trying to get back in the swing of things. However since I have been quite unstable I can’t really tell you guys when I will be back full force! My apologies! I’m trying to recover as fast as I can! For now.. time for a bit more rest!
Shine on Little Lights! Oyasumi!

A New Video! My First Dislike! The Sweetest Beef Bowl

Hello Little Lights! I am still chasing that dream to be a VTuber content creator! So I decided to make a video about my favourite subject, Pokémon! Since I try to profile myself as a Seiso type character, which means it’s pure and wholesome! Okay I may have murdered a pokémon professor in the video because I did not get to nickname my sweet but I think I am still rather wholesome…compared to other VTubers.. I was kind of proud of this video.. It isn’t that great or flawless.. but I put a lot of work in it. Yet this was the video I got my first dislike on.

Sweet Ambition

In this new video that I really wanted to make when coming up with my channel,  I created the Pokémon Sweet version.  It’s one of the earliest Rom Hacks  I played on this channel , and despite its flaws is still one of the most unique and fun rom hacks that are out there!
It is just so cute and totally me!  The grass is pink! Well at least the low grass is! It is the pinkest pokémon game you’ll ever see! So of course I will replay this!

There have been some technical issues caused by me using a laptop. Which causes a slight lag between video layers so the lip sync isn’t that great! But luckily I think I might have found a solution for that in the next video!  Which will be awesome!  I just had so much fun making this video and I hope it shows! Like I said about my previous videos, this is really a dream that I now can begin to chase, so I would really appreciate it if you could interact with the video.  The last video did not reach my goal of 10 likes, but it got me 2 new subscribers!
So the goals for this video remain the same!

-Get 10 Likes on this video… maybe 11 because of the 1 dislike I have gotten.
– Reach 25 followers. 

I really would like to get this thing started a bit and interaction is a great way to help out with that. Of course if you have any pro-tips on how to make cuter Twin Drills in VRoid Studio I am all ears as well!  I know it kind of looks like I am begging for likes.. and in a way I am.. but I really wish to chase these dreams.. and I consider you all friends that can help.
My real life friends would not though…so I am not really expecting you to interact either, I am just asking you to consider. Check out the video to make up your mind!

Future Videos

So now that I have given this a bit of thought, I have a pretty good idea on what my next videos will be.  My next video will be me doing a top 5. Most likely top 5 , Switch games coming out this year. I may change my mind about that though I am fickle.. but at least the concept of the video will be a  non gameplay video. Which is more of a socialish video!  A bit more edit friendly and that allows me to just talk a bit. It will be fun!   These will usually have some angle of actuality! Like a Tweet that hit me very hard , or an event that took place.  Stuff like that.

The fourth video “series” is  not a let’s play but rather a review type  discussion of a game.  Usually from my past!  It will cover a game I played in the past, that is special to me.. or that is quite bad or straight up strange !  Think Angry Video Game Nerd meets VTuber, with some room for childhood classics as well.  The game I want to discuss first is Super Ghouls and Ghosts, since a sequel is finally coming out at the end of the month! It will be talking more about the game and less of a live reaction emulation. I am quite excited for this one!
After those two are done we will start my “routine”

-A Retro-Style Game Playthrough (Let’s play)
-A Pokémon Game Playthrough (Let’s Play)
-A Top 5/Pinkie Talk 
– A Game “Review”

I am really determined to make my channel work so I am really excited to be making these videos!  I have found new communities to interact with and I think this allows me to grow as a content-creator. YouTube is a harder platform to master though! It lacks the community WordPress has and guiding people to my videos is a lot more involved.  So I apologise if these types of blog posts are obnoxious to you!  I am just trying to get this thing started and grow my channel! I promise you that after I reached a few milestones I will bother you less with it!  Video or text though it still is my content .. so if you are following me for me.. I hope you do not mind!

Thanks for listening and I hope you enjoy my video! I will see you soon little lights!  Thanks for being such awesome community members! Shine on and keep being the awesome you that I love!    Oyasumi!

The Sound of Stupid!

Hello Little Lights, my old friends!  I have kept silent long enough! But there is a huge problem in our community! It is rotten to the core!  Rotten indeed.. you see our blogging scene is filled with fake fans!  Not just of anime who only watched Naruto, Dragon Ball Z , Sailor Moon and whatever else was on that guys list.. but also  fake gamers!  Like Naja who mostly plays Otome games or Irina who almost exclusively plays RPG’s .. or me.. who didn’t  denounce Pokémon Sword and Shield for having bad tree textures.  But our community is more rotten than that my little Lights… among us are FAKE OXYGEN FANS!

YOU are a fake fan.

Ozone.. of course a true fan would know that

You see Oxygen is one of the most important elements in our nature and we need the dioxide variant to breath!  We also have the element in our water, as it is the O in H2O. 
But just because you breathe and need water doesn’t make you a real fan of oxygen!  You are all friggin ‘N(O2)rmies! Stay the fuck away from my air! Many of you do not even know of Ozone or its chemical formula , it’s O3.. that is a whole extra O!  If you have never thought about Ozone … you are a fake fan! You do not deserve O2 if you can not appreciate O3!

Choke you sheep!

I am sure many people will take this message out of context and say “Well but you need to breathe as well so if you breathe O2 as well you’re just a fake fan as all of us”. To that I say .. No I specifically said if you only like O2 and H20 … you can still like them.. but if these are the only oxygen combinations you are font of … you ARE a fake fan and you need to stay away from my element!  I am a true fun! Take all of those environmental hippies for example trying to reduce CO2 output! See O2!  That is just as much as the air we breathe! A true fan can see the beauty of these precious molecules while a fake fan.. trying to “save the earth” is misled by the trend .. and the popular stuff! Following public opinion like sheep! Baaah! Choke on that you N(O2)rmies!Now I hear what you are saying.. if O2 is healthier than NO2 .. why make a problem about it? It makes people happy right?!  Everyone should be happy?! Wrong!  Companies will take examples of your cause to reduce CO2 in the atmosphere and those who can appreciate it will get less content because you n(O2)rmies just want to breathe? Fudge that shit! You are ruining Oxygen for the true fans!

Lungs of a true Oxygen fan!

Here is a take you might dislike… but it is the truth! I love oxygen and I need to preserve my Fandom!  Keep it pure for those who are really fans!  If you do not smoke you might just be to much of a casual to call yourself a true oxygen fan!  You see I am sick and tired of the fact that people say, “Oh I love breathing oxygen so much!, without knowing what oxygen really is and what it is in?!” People say cigarette tar is bad for example.. but let’s take a look at the chemical formula! C28H36S5O6(NH4)2 … .. So a little research into the deeper formula is very clear!  06! That is 3 times the O that all the normies enjoy! Six times!  You are not a real fan of oxygen if you do not know these chemical formulas… a real fan would at least take a look at what their beloved product means and research and see deeper meanings. N(O2)rmies just think smoking is bad.. because it takes your breath away .. but that 6 doesn’t lie!  It may be poisonous but a real fan would make a few sacrifices for their fandom!

Only for the Real fans

If you swim Under water.. you should drown!

Now I get that some people may not have the ability to hold such much scientific prowess as I just displayed, but that does not excuse you from just assuming!  You know you can google all these things! Yet if there is one thing I hate more than  the feeble minded and the lazy.. it is the people who say they are a fan of oxygen and then go diving or something… I am not talking about scuba diving.. but those posers that swim underwater while holding their breath!  If you do that as a hobby, you deny yourself from Oxygen.. and you simply do not breathe enough of it to be called a true fan! Why would you deny yourself the pleasure by having other hobbies beside breathing!  These people have their opinion about oxygen as well.. they will determine what gas mixture goes into that scuba tank eventually! While they are no where near as versed into breathing as me! You see .. I never stop breathing.. even if I have the hiccups I just keep breathing because.. I am a true fan!\

Oxygen fans cars go Brrrr

N(O2)rmies also try to find love.. love that takes their breath away! If you pursue a love like that… you are also a fake fan! Kissing in general is not really great for how much oxygen you can enjoy either!  So a true fan knows they better not do that!  If you drive a car that is not powered by NOS you are a fake fan of oxygen!  Yes, everything gets better with extra oxygen! Can you imagine if this was about an anime fandom… saying you do not need to drive with NOS is like saying that you do not need to see Tetsuko no Tabi to be an anime fan! I mean come on! Everyone knows if you haven’t watched Tetsuko no Tabi you are a poser in the anime world.. so why would you drive your car around without NOS.

Lidocaine is not Oxygen!

Speaking of Nos.. people who choose a needle over gas at the dentist’s office are posers as well.  If you get a chance to use oxygen and you refuse.. You are a fake fan! Saying I don’t need those unhealthy varients of Oxygen is like saying.. I mostly play Otome games in the world of gaming… if you want to be the laughing stock of the oxygen world go ahead but don’t be surprised if people call you out for it! You act like a poser.. and just like we are allowed to call out False Valour, we are allowed to call out fake appreciation!  Think of the consequences these N(O2)rmies can do the the oxygen world. 

They will fill in polls that tell you they don’t want to buy NOS or use gas at the dentist office. So whatever garage you use, or dentist office might listen to those forms and stock up less NOS for us to enjoy!  That means that the true fan is being hurt because fake fans think It is not that necessary! They ruin the oxygen industry resulting in more and more casual oxygen products flooding the market with little to nothing interesting coming out for the true fan! Who can appreciate all facets of oxygen! We can not have that.. so I will ask people to start a petition for me.. to me. I have been banned from the site for having too many hot takes!  But the people can not silence me I will fight on! Together we can take oxygen back from the N(O2)rmies and claim back what we love! Yes they may die.. but fake fans deserve nothing less.

High Oyxgen Brain Takes

Even if you disagree with this take, you at least have seen that I am a special snowflake that knows more about Oxygen than you do, so whatever arguement you may bring in is worthless.. I have more knowledge of the fandom and therefore deserve higher status in the oxygen fandom. Segregation is important because it gives me self esteems. I enjoy a openly available entertainment product more than others therefore I am your superior, and inferior opinions will not weigh as heavy! So feel free to argue with me all you want.. but if you did not know the chemical composition of tar .. by head.. you will only prove my point that there is always someone more deserving of your oxygen than you.. and that person is me!  I am saying this because I want people to validate me and respect me.. for being brave and having enjoyed so much oxygen!  I also only watch dubbed anime! It is superior because dubs costs twice the oxygen!

Priorities! Wear Pink and Oxygen Training!

My lung capacity is 7.8 liters of air.. which means I am equipped better than enjoy oxygen more than people who have lower lung capacity! Quantity is super important! So what you have a 9 to 6 job, three children and some friends you need to entertain..  your other priorities do not excuse you from being a fake fan!  I on the other hand did altitude training.. simply to increase my lung capacity! On my mothers birthday I was training at high altitude…. at my grandpa’s funeral.. I was receiving oxygen preprates. I could have fed my kid a sandwich after school but instead  I went street racing just so I could burn some NOS! It’s called priorities, people! A true fan always has their priorities  at their fandom never at something else..  One day I hope to become Vegetable so enjoying oxygen is the only thing I do.. only then will I achieve a status higher than I already have.. and if you have a status below me.. in the hierarchy I explained earlier.. do  not bother to disagree. I don’t react to   P(O2)sers.

Gatekeepers suck!

My sweet little lights, let it be known that this post in no way reflects how I truly feel. From the ground of my heart I hope that you thought the little text I wrote was dumb… because this … is how I see gatekeepers.  What they are spouting is THIS dumb.  No matter what you gatekeep for. The arguments are always the same and I tried to make these points stand out from my fake little rant as well.  It’s all empty semantics..and in a way anime can be just as needed as oxygen!  Anime or games are a form of entertainment, everyone needs entertainment. People are allowed to like the entertainment they enjoy and call themselves fans of it.  I am pretty sure there are a lot of games of throne fans that do not know how to spell Daenerys Targaryn, who the frick cares.   Just because you like something does not give you the right to ruin an entertainment product for others.

I am happy that Summer is interested in my Pokémon posts even if she has little experience, I am not afraid that her love for mobile games might spawn a pokémon fishing game I have no personal interest in.. good for her and the people who would be into that stuff. The industry does not cater to your special snowflake; it caters to all of us.. Just like how trees and greens produce oxygen for all of us without bias so do the industries. Yes more people embrace the genre of Shonen and yes that might make people more likely to produce that stuff… but Gatekeeping will only make that worse.   If you tell a “normie” to fuck of from your fandom, that normie will have only watched Shonen.. you denied him or her that bridge from advancing. As a result he will just stick to Naruto or My Hero Academia, meanwhile the next generation comes in.. whom you also call fake and once again they never move past Shonen because people do not encourage them to!

This is not where that cycle ends because Naruto Fan Boy  of Generation 2.. never watched anything else so he recommends only the stuff you find labelled as “fake”   to a new generation. Generation 3 as a result lives in a shonen bubble.. because you alienated generation 2 through gatekeeping. So Gatekeeping enlarges the very concept you are trying to fight. You are not very intelligent if you gate-keep in my opinion. You cause segregation, between real and fake.. or as I prefer it Casual and Hardcore.  Say you succeed in your mission .. make the division officially acknowledge.. which side do you think will get the media?!  It’s not that casuals are not open for other anime.. that causes this divide.. it is you telling.. These people who only watch Naruto and Digimon are a different demographic than you are.  One demographic is severely larger than the other.. so if gatekeeping is successful.. which side of the coin will land face up?!

Anime is for everyone! Games are for everyone and Oxygen is for everyone! It’s all products we can get entertainment from. It’s great if you are able to think for yourself and follow your own opinions and make your own choices despite what is popular, I applaud that.. but that doesn’t make those people colouring inside the lines worth less than you.. at best they might be slightly less interesting or strong willed.. but that doesn’t make them undeserving of great content. I have a few Dragon Ball fans who mostly watch casual stuff.. but I enjoy discussing Toriyama’s work with them very much! They got so much insight.  Same goes for games. I know nothing of Otome games but I find Naja’s insights in them often much more cleverly written and inspiring than someone who only played “I love you Colonel Sanders” , but Fortnite and Minecraft and Breath of the Wild as well. Both can lead to great interactions .. but different. Both are super valid energies to enjoy! No one’s opinion or way to handle this is ever the correct way. We all have various wants and needs and that is why anime became so diverse in the first place.. if you invalidate others and map out what a true fan should be like.. you are only creating a new form of casual.

Don’t gatekeep! You will sound as dumb as me in this article! Don’t be like me! Yet if you feel you are more entitled to call yourself an anime fan, if you feel you are more of a gamer than others.. or if you consider yourself a superior in your fandom in any way… I do not mind if you unfollow me!  We are all equals and no matter if it is books, anime games or even lewd drawings we are all just seeking entertainment, and we are not you so we do it in our own way! Let everyone do their thing in their own way!  This opens up the argument that you destroy other people’s hobbies as your entertainment and we should let you, but in that case I think you dear gatekeeper are just a shitty person! I rather hang out with the fake fans then! But I swear to you guys! I am a real fan!

Told ya I was real!

It’s Like That One Game! But With Anime Girls! Pinkie’s First Gameplay Video!

Hello Little Lights! It is one of these again! One of these Blog Posts where I promote my videos! As today my first gameplay Video Released! I am really trying to make YouTube work for me! So I would really appreciate it if you all go take a look and interact with the video a bit! You know be the sunlight so my garden can crow! Thank you guys!

RosenkreuzStilette

In today’s video I will play RozenKreuzStilette , a game developed by Erka:ES and Dark Squid Media! It’s a Doujin Soft , which means the game originally was made more for fun rather than making money out of it! You can buy the game on Steam by clicking on this link or you can just use it to check it out there! But you know what would be a better idea?! If you check it out using my video! Yaaaay! Sugoi-Desu!

Can you help me reach my video like goal of 10 likes?! We are also trying to go for 25 subscribers! Maybe you can help me reach that goal! I would be very grateful! You do not have to click the bell! That is for later! So come check out this game with me and together I am sure we can have a fun time with it! It’s a pretty fun game so be sure to check it out!

What is Next?

So what will I do next? I think I will be uploading 3 or 4 series on my channel! The second I have already decided will be Pokémon.. Pokémon Sweet Version as a Start to be exact. I will be doing a Semi Nuzlocke with it…by which I mean, it will be a Nuzlocke but Pokésweets start with two lives, and each resurrection item I find I toss upon finding it but it can restore a lost life. Why do I do it like that? Mostly because I do not know the Flavour System , compared to the typing system! It will be fun!

Another series I consider uploading is Ducktales on NES ,but I feel that might be something that would be fun as a channel growth reward! Say if we hit 50 or 100 subscribers! So I will probably leave that one waiting for a bit! I feel like playing Dragon Quest IX could be a fun series! I never finished that game and making a video out of it might make me able to complete it! Playing trough a Tales of game is another option for that.

As a possible 4th extra series I am thinking about doing more of a “talk” video. Where I rank Pokémon, do Top 5 stuff or do some random other stuff such as answering questions, playing a weird browser game or just something that is fun as a one off video! You know a bit of a “see what sticks” kind of approach to content! That seems kind of fun! What would you like to see? Let me know and we will see if I can make a video about that as well! We can always try!

Please help out!

I am really trying to grow both in terms of finding my blogging direction as well as picking up my YouTube project so please help me if you can! Subscribe to my channel, leave a like to a video, or share a video or link with people who might be interested. Every little bit helps! Even retweeting my Twitter posts already helps out a lot! I would just love to interact with people more! Get to know more people and grows as a creator!

Of course any tip or help on how to improve my model, will also be welcome as well as any other stuff! I am chasing a bit of a dream here! And I really want to see it take shape here! So if there is anything you feel might help, even if it’s encouraging comments here on WordPress just show it! It would mean the world to me! Now I am off to start recording my Pokémon content! Shine on my little light lights! Oyasumi!

It is here! My First YouTube Video! Pinkie Ningennoga goes Live!

Hello my little lights! It is time today for a shameless self plug! I have expanded beyond just WordPress and finally started my life as a VTuber. Well the non streaming variant of that at least. I started making YouTube Videos as a Virtual presence in pursuit of my dream! Yesterday my first post went live! So today I celebrate by taking a day off from content creation and just making you aware of my video!

So tell us about this “Video” You Made

Why certainly, Snary me, pretending to be my readers! It isn’t anything all that special really! Just an introduction video! No me playing any games yet! I have noticed that a few VTubers I adore do this character sheet kind of thing, filling in one of those “friendship book pages” of old as it where! The one you let all your friends sign in which they would tell their favourite food, their favourite colour and stuff! It does that whole thing. Not only do my superior peers do that , it will also help people get a good grasp of me as a creator and the retro vibe might actually fit my plans really really well! So i just went for it! It was Sugoi to make! The moment I finally made my Thumbnail felt so liberating. I finally took a step towards my dream!

I made the video using nothing but free software. The only thing I do use that is paid is Photoshop but that ws a gift from a friend. All the images I made can be made in Gimp or any free software that allows you to create transparent background images and use different layers, whatever you prefer. For the Video Editing Software I use a program called Da Vinci Resolve , which despite a few annoying flaws I have really taken a shine through as my editing journey started. It has so much features and it is relatively light to run as well! As long as I can get used to the fact that Audio and Movie tracks are always synchronized I will do a lot better with my videos in the future as well! It has a professional version and a free version, but the options on the free version are amazing already! I can green screen, I can colour correct do some pretty amazing things I haven’t even begun to discover yet!

My model is made with a program called VRoid Studio. Which is a free Program that is available on Steam! It allows you to 3d draw on a puppet and make it your own! With a whole website of extra tools being available on VRoid Hub. You can design your own clothes or buy one.. I did a combination! I found a free one I liked as a basis and drew my own signature outfit onto it! While it took me a fair while to get this done I spend relatively little time wading through tutorials. Overall I might have watched about an hour or so. Probably less! I had a lot of fun experimenting. It isn’t flawless and I already updated my model to version 1.1 after my last first two videos, but that is the beauty of this software, by seeing your model in motion you get a better idea where it’s flaws are. And you can fix it more natural.. just by being active and creating! That is a style that I really REALLY like to learn with! So while you may see it in the video you can also watch me develop as I get into this more and more and I think that tells a story as well! I want to document that journey so that is mentioned in this video as well.

So it’s just a video about you?! Done Clunkily?!

Wow myself making these titles! Rude! Though also not entirely untrue! I had some struggles with making the first video. The problem lies in the last two programs I use, 3Tene to make my model move. Which is another great tool! It is like Facerig, but it works for free! No water marks and allows for way easier customisation. It allows you to register your self moving the character and allows for a lot of poses and actions, and it comes with a lot of fun anime effects! The problem though! It supports a mouth that moves either based on your webcam OR Your Microphone. However My voice isn’t reliable due to my muscle issues and it is something I really hate so I use text to Speech! Which brings a lot of problems in the mix! Luckily I have found that if I use my text to speech program,do the edit in Resolve, I can use the recorder function of my phone to record that .. and then I add it to my capture software to fairly okay results!

Then there is a problem in overlaying the mute video and the actual words being said in the main project as well! For this I use a lot of timers. I record dead air with the Audio recorder making an audible noise as I start the actual audio track. Then when I record my avatar I make her look up or down quickly on the moment i head the click and then I try to sync up my time by counting the seconds of dead air and matching it up! I think 3tene does allow me to record audio as well but I am not sure! I will figure that out as I go! I will make it work! I need to find a way to add cuts though! That will make things a bit easier! Maybe add in some cool effect or change camera perspective at certain intervals. That is just stuff I need to tinker with though! The text to speech program I use is called Balabolka by the way! It is also whatever other text to speech things you have installed, but is very easy to use! Pretty good!

Okay so just plug the video already!

Patience young Padawan! I worked hard on this video, I’d say somewhere between 15 and 20 hours went into making this (though that does include a fair bit of concept creating time as well). I had a blast making this and I want people to know where it comes from! It will be another bit of humble beginnings! But that does mean I really will look to you all to help me out here! Please watch the video and like it! I would love to see you subscribe but I won’t force you to do that! But if you like this post, I hope you will leave a like on the video as well! It may just help make my character become a blip on the radar! I am pretty sure most of you will have a YouTube account anyway! Thank you in advance and for those who aren’t watching this in wordpress reader: Here is the video!

For those who are reading this in reader! It would be appreciated if you would log into my site to at least give it a watch! I hope you will like my YouTube Debut and thanks for reading! Shine on my little Lights!

Oyasumi!

Pinkie Plays : Final Fantasy VI – Return of the Dark Sorcerer Episode 4 – Poison Pokemon and Pigs

This is little lights! The make or break episode to see if I will put a lot of time in this game or not!  Last week I absolutely adored what was going on, after a rough start!   I am playing Final Fantasy VI .. remade with characters from all over Geek Media.  From Fighting Raditz to having Cloud Crossdress to get Shang Tsung some Booze!   It’s all possible in this game!  Yet when the writers have to create their own dialogue.. that is not referential it all feels flat a bit! Now on an adventure with nothing but original characters I wonder.. Will the game be as good as it is when Cloud is there? Or will it fall flat on its face?! Find out today with me!

Familiar but Edgier

As Ronan washes around the shore I find nothing on the map but a little Orphanage, I make my way there after defeating a few slimes with Parasols!  A kid makes a comment about stranger danger, which is pretty accurate since Ronan is a half naked man talking to strange kids!  However a nun tells me a story about Arc.. a boy who became an Onion Knight after he saw a thief kill his mother.. or he thought he did , in fact that man just robbed her and was a good guy!  He feels sorry for the kid while his partner killed him in cold blood!  I assume this blue haired bandit will play the role of our Locke..  The kid being an Onion Knight suspect will have the role of Gau. I am not sure yet but the story is a bit mediocre just as I expected.  It’s good enough but it can’t hold a candle to the original … all the names of locations and characters feel so.. “My first Fantasy story” .. but okay let’s see where this goes I am kind of intrigued!  Time to get into the Imperial base! 

The first bit of the base plays remarkably similar to the original. Kefka is here and he is laying siege to a castle, as things seem grim a new hero shows up. Normally it’s Cyan but this time it is the Magic Knight “Avalon” I assume he will play like Celes with runic but so far I can’t play him yet. He is incredibly edgy though keeping talking about reaping and how his blade thirsts for blood. Seriously he sounds like a 13 year old’s first roleplay character. He has a pretty great battle theme though!  Not long after his introduction we are introduced to his mechanic. He can deal his total health in damage to an enemy and maybe inflict damage to an enemy. It’s neat enough, his design reminds me of Lancer from Fate.. and I do think most lancers look the same at least the one from Fate Zero and Fate Stay.. I am not sure if they are different people or the same.. but you know that look!  He kills his boss .. although barely and it’s time to go back to Ronan again.

General Leo has been replaced with… General Leo so once again this story is super duper similar to the original. However that Thief is in the background!  He seems to replace Shadow! His name is Oboro.. kind of a gothish name.. .. so whoever wrote this part of the story must be some massive kind of edgelord.. I’ll ask Indigo if he wrote it! I am half surprised the battle music isn’t “My Chemical Romance” Unlike I what I had expected he doesn’t play like Locke though he actually does play like Shadow as well, except he has a lot more stuff to throw and it is all a bit more Naruto like! He has a bunch of Ninja Scrolls that give all sorts of neat effects and a healthy amount of Shuriken from the get go!  So that is nice! The Kefka fight isn’t that hard and a Ninja Scroll deals with the troops I face while he gets away.. but Kefka manages to poison the river! It sucks to be at Mist castle right now!

Valkyries and Pokémon

We move back to Avalon, hoping to find something of a fun reference,  somewhere but so far this scene has been pretty bone dry. I always wondered how Kefka’s poison worked.. he put so little in and did not get poisoned himself yet the castle is completely wiped out!   Avalaon spouts more edgy crap about praying to the dragon god and being the dragon’s right claw that will get revenge and all that.. and this really just feels needlessly edgy and there is no fun to be had here… I know this scene probably lends itself to humor less as we see a man’s wife and kid die.. but common.. give me a snippet! Mamma wants a joke or a cool screenshot to share on Twitter.. but no Mamma is starving .. like a moth with no mouth! (Those are  a thing by the way).  I finally get one on the battlefield as Ronan and Avalon meet up! It’s a Valkyrie!?!

Okay I did not expect that.. it came out of nowhere and she looks strange but hey I will take it! The music here is awesome and some more Mega-Drive’ish tunes!  It really conveys “edgelord going ham!”  The Valkyrie fighting the people of the dragon culture though?!  I think that is a bit off a miss! Let’s kill her for being a not so amazing thing in this game! It’s a fight that is a bit harder than I had anticipated but eventually the Valkyrie goes  down. We steal a bunch of Magitek armor and after a bit of Magitek fighting we clear the camp and we find out the only way to go to Fraust is by going through some sort of haunted forest. Time to suplex a train! I love suplexing trains!  As a Kaijuman that is something we do in our spare time.. but Gidora’s son keeps beating me! Gamera’s as well. .really getting some lift out of that shell of his.On our way to the Dreaded Forrest I only encounter some spikey generic alienish creature that seems out of Metroid or something .. we can just use the fight command to win… but everything changes as soon as we hit the forest.. the first fight is super hard.. but then I see a Gengar!  Ooooh this can be good!

The forest itself offers a fair bit of a challenge but I discover that Ronan’s Kamehameha Wave is really good for dealing with the Undead so we make good progress. I encounter two creatures staring at a lake .  one says he wants to see the Ocean, the other says he wants to see a pig watching the ocean. That’s .. random!  We encounter a few elite soldiers , who then turn into zombies  who then turn into dust and we spot a little Onion Knight in the forest boarding the Skull Train.. a guy named Reaper says he will only let us pass if we give him our souls when we die.. I refuse and have to do the area all over again.. not because I die I just got teleported out. Frick! Eventually we agree and this is the moment the random soldier in my party decides to sacrifice his own life…Wait.. you mean to say the guy with no abilities ISN”T a mainstay party member.. I am so shocked by his death! That’s right Moths speak Sarcasmn!

The Skull Train

Reaper takes the spot of the generic Knight and now we have to board the soul train! Reaper has to promise to leave Avalon’s family alone..and it turns out he is like a Dragon Born .. seriously.. Indigo did you make this character?!  The Ghost train normally has you rolling around with several ghosties which can make minced meat of the fights to come in trade for their existence.. that doesn’t happen here. Reaper tags along all the way and he has some interesting abilities but he lacks the quick kills! Which results in a much slower train experience!  Being the expert that I am however I progress more and more!  Fighting some ghosts that look like a pair of sheets and some demony gluttony demons that look quite horrible! I actually do like these designs and while not referential this is a segment is quite enjoyable so far! The music is just okay here though! Funny though is that the characters are aware of the ominous music and seem  to use it to indicate they are in danger. See even when you don’t use famous stuff you can be weird and funny! 

I make my way up to a save point which comes rather later, and I fully expect to almost be up to the final boss battle! Little did I suspect that I had to face a mini boss before! It’s Arc the Onion Knight, who attacks me! Avalaon however has a peculiar ability in which he deals his total HP in damage to an enemy and might cast a random debuff..  the debuff he casts this time is DOOM. This puts the Onion Knight on a clock and  the fight is pretty easy after that.  Arc does take down Ronan though .. after the fight so the little guy gets away. While the fight was easy I am left on relatively low HP and while I go to use a shelter on the save spot I just past.. my safe spot turns into the wreck of the Ralph icon! That’s a thing! Why does my mind work the way it does and try to figure out how that would be a shelter in Real life?!

The rest of the train lasts pretty long, I eat some ghostly food, I get healed, I face the Onion Knight again, I take damage, I move trough passengers carts, I discover a Mini Boss that guards an Angelic Pendant that is a REALLY good Item for Avalon as it gives him Regen.. I fight the Onion Knight again.. I encounter Finn and Jake from Super Adventure Time.. that’s right they are in a random cart having what they claim to be a near death Experience. There is so much content in this train and it’s pretty awesome.. there is just one thing lacking! Another Save Point! We get ANOTHER fight with the Onion Knight and this one is even easier.. because it’s not a fight.. our Party Member beats him up for us. However then the ghost of his mother appears and tells the boy the truth this man feels regret for the role in her demise yada yada yada, please take care of my boy Blabla. She then trades her soul with the reaper for her boys safety and he brings her to the afterlife… now  that’s cute and all and I guess the guy gets points or something.. but you are literally ON A TRAIN TO THE AFTERLIFE! Why would she need to be TAKEN there when she is going there anyway… well who knows! 

The Young Boy takes Reapers spot in the party and we prepare for the final boss… but I am spent… and I get rewarded with a Save Point! We save the game and will continue next time. While flawed this arc had some interesting events that are actually very different from the original game. The problem here is that it does feel to edgy! When it’s not a fun refference it’s all doom and gloom and the tones clash so hard for me! Even though in fairness I did not even really mind this arc on it’s own! I like he inclusion of an Onion Knight and Avalanon’s mechanics are interesting and their backstories at least have weight to to them… but is that good enough in a game like this?! I wonder! It is a great game.. but some of the writing is just to edgy or nonsensical for me to fall in love wih this version.  I DO wanna find out what happened to Raditz though. Maybe i’ll just play a little bit longer after the first arc.. maybe not.. we will cross that bridge when we get there. Time to crawl into Ralph again.. and see you all next time.

Pinkie Plays: Moemon Emerald Extreme Randomiser Nuzlocke Episode 6: It’s Froppy!

Hello again my little Lights, welcome back to a new Installment of Moemon Emerald Extreme Randomiser Nuzlocke. After the silly death of Souji next week I am really hoping I can get through a week without losing Moe’s! We got a pretty good team right now as we slowly will make our way to Flannery. We will get a fair few number of encounters,but a lot of trainer battles.. and an egg as well!  So today anything might happen!

The Team

Ace: Miku the Jigglypuff (Lvl 25)  Crush Claw, Camouflage, Flail, Super Sonic
Ability: Wonder Guard (Can Only be hit by Super Effective Moves)
2nd: Usagi the (C)Raichu (Lvl 24) Thunderpunch, Spark, Stockpile  Shockwave
Ability: Effect Spore (Can leave a Status Effect on Contact)
3th Murmur the Porygon 2 (Lvl 24)  Earthquake, Hyper Fang, Cut and Morning Sun
Ability: Poison Point (Can Poison when physically hit)
4th Ika-Chan the Tentacruel (Lvl 23)  Hydro Cannon, Hydro Pump, Bubble Rain Dance
Ability: Huge Power (Doubles Physical Attack)
5th Asuka the Fearow (Lvl 23) Sky Aerial Ace, Headbutt, Foresight, Milk Drink
Ability: Stench (Has a 10% Flinch Chance and encounters less wild Pokemon)
6th Hisoka the Mr. Mime (lvl 23) Heat Wave, Barrier, Light Screen, Pyscho Boost
Ability: Hustle (Physical moves are 50% more powerful but miss 20% of the time) 

Screams of Joy 

To continue our journey something has to learn Rock Smash.. will I take less Moe and Chi-Chi as a slave with me?!  Do I teach someone Rock Smash what I will do?!  Since Tentacruel has 3 water moves I decide to teach Ika-Chan  Rock Smash for now..it will be a useless move in combat.. but so is bubble right now.. and I really want to get everyone to their levels! The move deleter is pretty far away still .. but heck I might find a Kyogre Moe for me to catch anyone so let’s live a  little! And then it is encounter time! I think! Wait! I first need to get the HM for Strength in Verdanturf town! I encounter a few trainers but with an actually versatile team I don’t get. Hisoka learns Solar Beam.. because.. why not! I am not coming back to this town any time soon!  I decide to hold teaching strength for now but Murmur looks like she might be a HM slave! I do encounter a very cute Tsundere Granbull on my way back though! So it’s all worth it!

Time to head up North! Ika smashes some rocks and behind we find a journalist who wants to challenge me and interview me. Her camera man uses a Magikarp and she uses a Solrock and they are easily defeated. The next trainer has a single Celebi.. who falls to Asuka! I believed I could walk into the sandstorm a bit to get an encounter.. but apparently without the goggles I can’t even take a single step! I remember being able to walk here but it being a hassle without the goggles.. Maybe I have been hallucinating again!   Guess that happens from staring at all those Lava Lamps. Guess it is to route 112! This route has great memories for me! I found my first shiny ever here! A shiny Machop! What will my encounter be this time?! …EEEEEEEEEEEEEE! It’s a Bulbasaur! I need to  catch this! Sorry Murmur you will be booted off the team! I got my favourite starter! EEEEEEEEEE! It took me almost all my great balls but EEEEEEEEEE! Tme to skip some grinding and to add Froppy to my party!

Creepers!

After grinding Froppy has learned Strength (as she had no coverage and physical strength is mixed) she knows Giga Drain, Vine Whip and Synthesis.  Well actually he.. bit these are Moe so that’s debatable!  Next it is onto the Fiery Path to catch another Moe! What will it be.. will it be just as awesome?! It isn’t .. It’s an Onix.. that is not great ..but I did pick up a metal coat!  I name it Izumi and send it to the box for now!  I also get a static Rock Smash encounter .. A Magnemite that I call Yuhachigo.. it goes to the box as well!   But hey I have Moe in reserve now! Things are looking up for Pinkie!  Then we are on to the most confusing thing for a Pokémon Nuzlocke of these games! What looks like a new route is actually route 112 again! Hoenn has so much of these moments! Super confusing! 

I encountered a super strange Moe in the form of Lileep! I don’t even think it’s an anime girl! I am not sure what it is! I shared the picture with you! Tell me what you think it is! I know Ika-chan sure thought .. “I need to get the Distortion World out of here!” We beat the Lileep and some other trainers, before I discovered a house called Old Lady’s Rest Stop… Uhm…. is this a bathroom for old ladies?! No! This is a house where an old lady asks 10 year old girls to spend the night with her.. and keeps asking for you to stay over more! ….The heck is wrong with this world! I now get why Team Galactic wants to erase existence! This is NOT okay! I don’t know this old lady! Well let’s quickly move on! Rest my tiny bones?! It feels like she wants to collect them and build stuff with it or something! Creepy!

Next I encounter the weirdest trainer class I’ve ever seen.. Ghostwriter!  I never heard about it! I can’t even find info about it! The heck is going on in this area. a ghostwriter and a bone collecting lady!  I teach Ika-Chan Muddywater instead of Hydro Pump.. it is slightly more accurate and even though it is less powerful, the accuracy drop  is great. in Nuzlockes and it has a fair bit more PP which can be nice in stally battles! The next route is covered in Ash completely which doesn’t make the bone collector and the ghost writer less creepy! My encounter is a Venomoth .. which is okayish I guess! It is named Neppy and sent to the box! Now to get through this route! I remember normally disliking it because it has a lot of encounters popping up everywhere! I  see an item but I have to  get through a double battle to get it!  It actually has a Spinda, the thing you get too much on this route!

Through the Ashes

I decided to teach Usagi Night Shade, just so she has something else than electric moves to hit enemies with, it isn’t great but she hasn’t learned anything in over 20 levels of leveling! She needs something to deal with enemies as the electric type is resisted by a fair amount of my enemies! This fight turns out to be super scary though!  The trainer has an Armaldo that knows Destiny Bond.. a move that  kills you . .if you knock out the enemy that used it.. and Ika–Chan will definitely knock  them out!  Saving my baby Usagi chan, I decide to swap in  Asuka .. and she almost gets killed by a Rock Tomb. We scrape by but trigger another battle, which is witteling us down more and more!  The item I chased turns out to be a Fluffy Tail.. while that sounds cute.. it basically means you throw the tail of another creature in the battle.. so enemies attack it.. and you can run away.

Now I am running out of potions ..so I stop by a house hoping it’s another  bone collecting lady that allows me to rest.. but no .. this is a guy that is a glass blower.. he gives me a big bag to fill with Ash in order so he can make me glass tools! He huffs and puffs! .. Wait.. he is the Big Bad Wolf!!! EEEEEK!  Horror!  Well let’s collect come ash then if he ever attacks me I can throw it in his eyes!  I decide to lead Froppy since she is bulky and has plenty of moves to use! Maybe with that Moe I can reach the next town! I keep getting attacked by Ninjas though! Seriously what’s wrong with this world.. I mean they call themselves Botanists.. (again where can you find that trainer class?!)  but they clearly are ninja’s.. Chuunin though!

Everything goes a bit downhill after that. Miku gets burned, Ika-Chan gets paralysed, Usagi gets poisoned, Asuka is in red health,  and Hisoka gets hit by a Shadow Ball by A Magmar.. and puts on 2hp! We narrowly escaped death there!   As a result levels begin to grow a bit more skewed. Froppy is my strongest Moe now followed by Miku! I have to start using Repels more to make my way through this route!  We sneak by a few trainers and enter Fallarbor town! I heal everyone up and go back to finish off all the remaining trainers! I always feel compelled to do that!  A trainer class called “servant”  has A MAchoke that looks like she might be a Yare Yare Daze girl.. she also has a pretty sexy  Poliwrath.. well except for the boxing gloves!  

I then explore town a bit as I know there is a TM for Roar on a villager, as well as the move Dig.. these both get randomised. Roar gets randomised to… Roar… Eh?! Frizzle Sticks!  Dig gets randomised to Sketch! Son of a.. Skitty!  I have had the worst TM  luck!  I also decide to stock up on potions again! Since the store is randomised  I check for interesting items but there are none! Just some X items that boost a stat! They can be neat but with a Randomiser of moves they aren’t all that reliable for defence at least! So I decide to only use them if I pick them up from the ground. While investigating here I discover that some kind of professor  that has gone missing. Ah… you know you realise that PoliceMan is a trainer class right? Though with our luck they have been reclassed to Burglar.. or something obscure like “Bubble-Tea-Vendor or Something” .  So when you can’t count on the  police I guess you carry the 10 year with a bunch of magical girls! That actually makes a lot more sense now that I say it out loud! I am an immortal Moth after all!  Okay  guess I will be a good girl one more time .. but after that , no more chores! I am here to do the Pokémon League!

Pinkie Thinks & Sings: A Reflection and Song About Pursuing Content Creator Happiness

Hello little lights, today I wanted to talk to you about things that have been going on in my life. I failed to do a few uploads because I was busy chasing new projects.  This post is a little update on how I am doing, What I am trying to do, and how I am trying to achieve it. It will go trough a few struggles I have been going trough with myself, the community and WordPress,  as well as showing I am still working on realising my dream.

I am a nobody

This week, I got seriously burned on social media!  I try to get more into it, playing these games people do where people assess you or interact with your platform, as well as I have tried reacting to people!  However, due to my health being so frail over the past two weeks I have also been sleeping a lot and I barely manage to create my own content, let alone visit all your amazing content.  I had little focus because I am medicated into being super groggy or in a lot of pain due to my muscles going quite volatile on me!  Seeing people interact with each other on twitter usually cheers me up! Yet in a bad head space I realised, while people love to play these games with each other it is extremely rare for people to interact with me. Which is totally fair as I haven’t been always as sociable as I like either, but people don’t seem to really interact with those “who do you think Pinkie is”  kind of posts. From my bad headspace, I took that the wrong way and created a super toxic situation for myself convincing nobody cared for me. 

I know this to be untrue because my health updates got met with lots of love and sympathy, but you know that little devil on my shoulder explained that as, “they don’t care about you, they are just being polite and care about being deemed polite, see if everything is fine and dandy no one wants to interact with you”. I know I am the odd duck in the anime community, I might not even be truly a part of the anime community as that is not my main content but I always believed by simply being a geek, I’d also belong. Maybe I was wrong with that, maybe anime is truly the only things that binds us and by toning my anime content down I have estranged myself from you all. I need to be more social but for some reason my head is so full of stuff, Yet I struggle! Where do I belong?! I do not know and the past two weeks made me question everything. I do know you all are important to me even if I can’t always show it though!  So maybe that goes around the same way, I can not assume you do not care, that is the devil talking! But he is making me really sick lately!  I barely was able to get out of bed anymore!

I am me

Being confronted with my physical weakness and my sickness these past two weeks made me feel glum, the devil was there to devalue you all… or more accurately, devalue myself in correlation to how I would like you guys to see me. I want to do more anime content, but back pains are always present, just watching something doesn’t take away my pain, I  need to be engaged in a game or a project to shut it of properly.  Even then I just have a laptop, if I need to lay down and just watch something because the pain is to much, the laptop needs to be set up for that and the tv offers an easier solution.  If I want to watch anime I constantly need to lean over to make screen captures… and I can’t.. I am pain… my heart has been kind of poorly functioning properly.. it’s weak. Oftenly giving me much lower blood pressure and then I feel sick like a dog,  translating in my head can be overwhelming then.  So all in all, anime hasn’t been my most suited media right now!  Plus then there is my dream.

 My writing isn’t the most accepted. It is a lot quirkier, than some of my more successful colleagues out there. This on the one hand gives me validation, I am unique so I have a right to exist. I am known in the blogosphere as well and I love that.  Yet the devil keeps questioning on how sincere we all are. I know a lot of you are sincere in their interactions towards me, but how many would truly notice if I got to sick to blog and missed a week? I can not answer that question and I will never be able to!  How many would send me a message with “Are you well?” out of their own accord?! I sometimes wonder about that, the devil says not a lot.. but cheerful little moth self tells me, perhaps those people just do not want to bother you, they just think they are bloggers to you after all. I can never know how you think about me, unless directly told.. but that also means that I can not adapt me to be someone that is liked more, even if directly told, what about the silent ones! They have a voice as well! So I never can answer what is the best me for you all… so I just have to be the me that I truly am and take the pain when it’s not good enough and revel in the joy for when it is!   That is also why I am doing let’s plays and Nuzlockes now! I have a lot of fun playing those!  If that interests people that is great , if it doesn’t, at least I had fun! So while I know my new content isn’t as well received as some other posts.. it is something I have to do to be able to get up in the morning.

I am more than a Blogger

I have told several times that this blog was made because I do not have a strong voice, I can talk okay, but I can’t talk constantly, sometimes I just can’t bring out words and only whisper. I always saw that as a quality that will keep me off YouTube forever, and started my blog to be the “voice free” version of that. Yet as I grow I realise that this medium has its limitations, while I do love blogging a part of me feels as if my dream isn’t being fulfilled. Imagine asking your parents for a dog, but all you get is a Hamster.   While you love Fluffy Whiskerson with whole your heart and are super grateful to your parents for giving you this great addition in your live, it doesn’t take away that need deep inside you to play fetch with something, go on walks with a loyal quadruped that comes back to you when you call it’s name. Blogging is my hamster. I treasure it deeply.. but some things I want to do as a creator I can not do as a blogger. While my limitations on YouTube are ample, I lack proper materials for video editing, I lack the voice and the self promoting skills to make that work will probably prevent me from ever growing the size I am on here I feel as if I need to pursue it still as a bucket list thing of sorts.

I am a gamer that happens to like anime but due to my connection to OWLS I started fitting anime content in my blogging content as well, Pokémon Gaming got expanded as well as I realised more content made me happier. However I am now at a point where it has “stranded” me. Not in terms of content creation but in turns of development. Most of my readers are tied together by anime, and while I do enjoy anime, I do not think that is what binds me to you guys! Due to my content selection, I feel what binds “us” is WordPress. We share this amazing platform to show our ideas and we give each other time because we show up in each others Reader. That is fine because it connects us through a joined hobby! Writing! And I love you all for being there for me and showing off your amazing blogs! Yet I am like the little Mermaid here! 

Pinkie’s Remade Song!

I wrote a cover of the Disney Song to express my feelings! I Include the instrumental version of Part of your World that follows the text in a YouTube video, if you need to follow the rythm of my text please visit my website outside of reader!

Look at my blog, isn’t it neat?

How content can one website  hold?
Looking around here you’d think
Sure, she’s got everything

I’ve got Follows and Likes A Plenty!
I’ve got achievements and Views Galore!
You like loyal readers?!
I’ve got twenty!

I do care!
I love it!
But want More!

I wanna be where the people are!  
I wanna see, Wanna see them simping!
Following me simply for
What was the reason?!
Oh, Me!

While my blog made me go really far,
Vids are required to tell my stories!

Walking you trough my…
what was my focus?!
Games!

Up where they talk!
Where content plays!
Where I really hope to find a new space!
Creating more me!
Limitless Free!

My YouTube World!

What would I give! If I could live!
Out as my true self!
What would I pay, to spend a day
As the true me!

I need to vent, please understand,
I am not calling you out dear reader!

But this creator, needs to update her…
true content!

I am ready to spread my wings and Soar!
Find new Interactions,

And find some answers!
Can I succeed or will i get..
what’s the word?
BURNED!

When it’s my turn?!
Can I be Loved! Or Will I just end up getting Shoved?!

I need to grow!
Out of this low!

As the true me!

Who am I?!

Do not mistake this for me quitting blogging! I am merely expanding! I will not quit nor even take a break! However, I am in the pursuit of Happiness for myself and that might mean that I will one day rather work on a YouTube Video than post a blog! The other day I might photoshop over some scenes in an iconic song and post a blog 7 hours later than I normally would! I am overwhelmed, I am not doing to great mentally and physically.. but those limitations are just as much a part of me than my dreams. Yes I would love to give you content each day.. but if my heart can’t handle it, if I am in to much pain, that is a part of me I have to accept just as much as that part that says blogging alone isn’t enough! That is alright!I can’t force my heart to beat correctly for the sake of content as much I want. I can’t make my muscles relax on days anime content is supposed to released and I can’t always smile the sorrows away sometimes I just need to accept my lesser parts as well. And YouTube offers a more creative outlet to forget those pains.

Monday February 1st I will start with a long project of going to hospitals! Medicine, Psychology and later on even surgery will all be part of this and I do not know how it will effect me! I might have very rotten days where I need to stay in bed, or stay at the Hospital which is far away for me. It is so I can be my true self however, and live a much healthier, happy live, in that spirit I decided to already start taking a bit more liberty with content creation schedules! Do stick with me though becauseI have plenty of stuff left to tell!

As for you my little lights, I have seen a lot of bloggers talking about the importance of consistency to let your blog grow and be successful! Be sure to never let that overshadow yourself however! You are the most important element to your blog! Without you , there is no blog or no content what so ever. So if you want to try something else to see if it makes you happy, be it podcasts, YouTube or heck even pro-gaming or making memes or whatever. Don’t be afraid to chase a dream! Your dreams can be petty! Yes I would love a simp of my own which sounds petty but there are reasons I assure you! However that is to long of a story to still tell! By doing a lot of research I found a good text to speech program so I can get my words out there, I found a free 3d model program, free editing software and even free face rigging software! It will not get me to where I want, but it will help me start the chase! I am more than then what I create! I am also what I dream about and I am also defined by the things I can not do! Only by accepting it all will I find my true happy place and my true Paradise!
