Otaku Evolution Episode 236 - Casshern Sins

Ahhh, tragedy porn. A lot of my favorite anime has tons of melodrama, but when an anime really overdoes it in an annoying, nihilistic (in a negative sense) way, it ceases to be tragedy and starts to be tragedy porn. Casshern Sins is, at the very least, borderline tragedy porn, the way that Now and Then, Here and There was. But unlike NTHT, it doesn't have a lot of redeeming qualities that pushes it out of the mire of wallowing. It's just this endless march into hopelessness. But don't get me wrong, tragedy porn can still be somewhat good. It's just that Casshern Sins is just kind of "eh"/okay, at best.

I also included some bookend material, this time involving my desire to affect current real world events... in my little fictional version of it. I wanted to do something with Penguinopolis' casino because it's one of my favorite settings. I think the "Slot Heaven" background is originally from a Double Dragon game. My casino office is a compilation background taken from various elements from different game backgrounds and some Rob stuff. You can also see a Fruitimal, Octocherry, on my desk. Forget the Fruitimals, though, and support Windy Woods now: https://www.etsy.com/shop/WindyWoodsDesigns
