DAYUM!!- Ichigo of Bleach vs Pain of Naruto -Fan animation!! – Lazar Corp

inchi-vs-pain

From a Russian animation group -Lazar Corp comes a fan animated short titled Ichigo of Bleach vs Pain of Naruto. Prepare to be blown away by the sheer amount of insanity the animation seem to throw at the audience. Being a lover of insanity this put into retrospect the animation of lore that fueled my lost love. This takes the best parts of both series and turn them up to ludicrous levels. After watching this I felt uterly lazy and that I have not been pushing myself as much as I should pertaining to my animations. I am uncertain as to how many animators worked on this nor does that concern seems valid or necessary. The colors, though used in limited contrast worked to convey the action that was taking place and allowed the animator to focus on subjects. This was far from a simple effort this was a solid flare. In a way I felt this was a throw back to all the over the top anime I have watched except that this was a straight ten minutes of pure insanity.

I would spend my time explaining and talking about this megabomb but I feel you should use this time to watch this amazing work.

Don’t forget to follow the link back to their own youtube page and check out the other things they work on. Can’t believe I missed this awesome work when it dropped back in April 2014 what the heck was I doing.

DAYUM!!– Avatar Korra- Book 3 Finale WOW what a wrap up!

Avatar korra was nothing like the avatar Aang, this was most certainly a grand leap forward in an animated shows taking a show focused around a male lead character to a story focused around a strong female lead. There were many that disapproved of the female lead and claimed a show would never work with a female lead which was proven wrong. To make things worst they moved one of their top shows to a pathetic time slot which then inadvertently pushed it to be an online only program. I personally do not mind the online only method as most program I watch are online via Netflix, Hulu or some other online viewable area.

As I watched avatar Korra I witnessed a huge character development, from a suborn adolescent know it all, who needed no support, to a person who felt she could depend on her friends to even risk life and limb to protect them while doing her cause as an Avatar. One of the great charms of the previous series was it’s jokes and senseless humor. The new show still retains these qualities from predecessor which premiere several years ago with the then leads Aang, Katara, Sokka and Zuko the protagonist. At that time Aang had one goal to defeat the fire lord and to do that he had to master the 4 elements, along the way he had his missteps and so on and learning lesson and had to grow quickly as a child to a warrior. The one thing he had over the current Avatar or past avatars was counseling from his past self, that part is actually very creepy when you think about it. Either way he had that support. On the reverse the current Avatar Korra had to learn quickly after the loss of her counsel of leader ship. The case was more mature with Korra being probably 17 or so I suppose and things being one more direct issues than simply mastering an element. This felt or embodied the feeling of watching the dragonball series and it’s leap to dragonball z with the action intensifying and the death toll looking very much real, or even for this generation naruto to Naruto Shippuden. This was a more flushed out avatar with more serious sub issues, it was not sugar coated for a child audience it was more direct in it’s approach of anarchy and chaos. Now with a more mature cast and theme this series was no long simply a kids show and in a way I see why they(Nick) had to move the timeslot from the children’s block as it simply did not fit their mold or brand. This was truly an emotional avatar series, the finale of book 3 was almost heart breaking to see Korra go through so much pain and then a great defeat.

In conclusion I have to congratulate the team for a job well done. Book 4 is looking to possibly be a great wrap up the team of Avatar Korra has their work cut out for them. Lets hope the conclusion is well met.
