I went to bed last night thinking it was Friday. When I woke up today, my phone indicated that it is Friday. Can you imagine how shocked I was? No, it’s true, I was really shocked. I really thought after watching so many anime, I was finally caught up in one of those bizarre scenarios where I became the protagonist caught in a time loop or something, destined to repeat Friday over and over again. WTF!?
Took me a while to get over it and realize that I must have made a mistake in remembering days wrongly.
Anyway, that’s not what I want to talk about today. I’m only writing this to let you guys have something to comment about. What I’m going to write below, I guess won’t be interesting enough for comments…
You know what I do after work these days? I’m too tired to write/read blogs with a straight mind, so I have been doing relatively more relaxing things, like watching tons of anime and Youtube videos. I guess this is not even news anymore, eh?
My most recent anime discovery is a… is a… I don’t know how to describe it. The title is Maoyuu Maou Yuusha. It tells the story of Maou and Yuusha.
Maou is pronounced Ma-Ou, 魔王. Yuusha is pronounced as… er… Yuusha, 勇者. If you can read Chinese words, then you will know it is about Demon King and Hero.
Yup, I rather spontaneously figured out what I wanted to describe this anime as. By looking at the title, it appears that this is a pretty silly anime, isn’t it? I mean, the opening scene is something like this:
But if you go deeper, this is a somewhat educational anime. It tells about a Demon King who is a scholar of economics and doesn’t have any evil powers or fighting skills, and a Hero who is a crazy overpowered fighter with not much of a thinking ability. The Demon King tries to bring about an end to Human/Demon wars by introducing economic reforms to the worlds, and the Hero protects her.
There’s a lot of technical economy jargon being floated around throughout the series, and you get simple layman explanations on why the kings and rich people wars to happen all the time. Because wars create prosperity for the rich and elites at the expense of the poor. Or something like that.
It kinda explains why a certain global superpower country is doing what it has been doing for the past 20-30 years, sending troops here and there and destabilizing the whole world in the process. You get to learn serious stuff like this while enjoying yourself with anime. How nice is that? Right???
Ahhh, no!!! Wrong picture manifests itself again!! Stop!!!
I wonder if I will wake up tomorrow morning and find that it is Friday again. If I do, I’ll be sure to write it down here again.
Wait, no… if I’m really caught in a time loop, then this post will not be around. I will be writing something new and you all will never know the existence of this particular blog post…
I think I’m really going nuts… 🙄
