I haven't been posting anything for a little while. Work has pretty much dominated my time. Any free time I have is devoted mostly to my friends or my anime viewing. But I'm still hoping to draw something before the end of this month. In celebration of the new Terminator: Genesys film, I might draw a portrait of Arnold Schwarzenegger as The Terminator from the poster of the first film from 1984(Great decade for cinema in my opinion, the 1980s).
Anyway, I recently had a falling out with someone on DA whom I thought was my friend, alexgameanimeex35.deviantart.c…
but he decided to act like an ass & continue a flame war that happened 2 months ago. He actually said I needed help from a doctor because I liked a certain series of Tokusatsu Superhero movies that he didn't like & actually DARED to call me a fanboy. Just because I like the Super Hero Taisen movies, doesn't make me a fanboy. It was the 1st Super Hero Taisen film that caught my interest in Kamen Rider in the 1st place. He even had the gall to compare me to a goddamned Michael Bay Transformers Fanboy. How dare he? I get that there are some people who are so ignorant to disregard the original source material of a series in favor of a remake or reboot, that's the problem with most Bayformers fans, but I'm not 1 of those kinds of idiots. I try to learn as much about a series as I can. I choose to embrace most facets of a franchise as opposed to just 1. But there are facets I hate & can't stand.
From the Dragon Ball series: I like the manga, animes, TV movies, & OVAs of Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z, & Dragon Ball GT(Yes, I like GT. SSJ4 is too bad-ass to not like.). But I hate that abomination, Dragon Ball: Evolution for many obvious reasons.
From the Transformers series: I like the TV shows, animes, comicbooks, & videogames of G1, G2, the Beast Era, Car Robots, the Unicron Trilogy, Animated, & Prime. But I hate Bayfoirmers with a passion. I liked the musical score & the fact that they got Peter Cullen & Frank Welker to come back to Transformers, but that's about it.
As far as Kamen Rider & Super Sentai go, I've been following Super Sentai for about 3 years & Kamen Rider for only 2. I haven't watched all of the shows yet, but I do enjoy what I've seen so far, including the Super Hero Taisen films. From Super Sentai, I've seen Bioman, Maskman, Jetman, Zyuranger, Dairanger, Kakuranger, Carranger, Megaranger, Timeranger, Abaranger, & Gokaiger. From Kamen Rider, I've seen Kamen Rider 1971, Amazon, ZX, Black, Black RX, the 90s Kamen Rider Trilogy, Kuuga, Agito, Ryuki, Faiz, Blade, Kabuto, Den-O, Kiva, Decade(My 1st Rider series.), OOO, & Fourze. Some all the way through, some only part or half of, due to either my schedules or KRDL not having a complete library of the TV episodes or movies. For any info I might be missing, I consult my friend who got me hooked on these series in the 1st place due to him knowing more about it then I do.
If you only watch 1 facet of something & not bother learning anything about the source material, that makes you an ignorant fanboy. I am no fanboy. I am a Nerd. There is a difference. But there are a bunch of hardcores who call you a douchbag or say you have poor taste for liking something they don't for no reason. We all have our preferences, that's our right. For example, here's a list of movies I like that a majority seems to dislike for 1 reason or another. Independence Day, Batman Forever, Batman & Robin, Never Say Never Again, Indian Jones & the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. I like these movies for my own reasons & that's all I need. I'm not going to change that for anyone. And now he's trying to kick me out of a group just because I disagree with him. That just isn't fair. I don't care if he's a co-founder. This is bullshit.
