Seriously, somebody please explain this to me.

Light novels are the bane of non-Japanese reading otaku the world over.

Even though I’ve seen this movie, I’ve never really brought it up. That’s because it was… kinda boring.

Characters I Like: Jinnouchi Sakae

You know what I like? Well, you know a lot of things I like by now, but you know what I like that you didn’t know I like? Old people being badass. Think Makarov going to war with Phantom Lord when Team Shadow Gear is attacked:imageThink Tellah using all 90 of his MP before casting Meteor, which he NEVER had enough MP to cast. Think Galuf single-handedly defeating the main villain at 0 HP.

Jinnouchi Sakae comes from the movie Summer Wars, a tale all about the importance of family, which I say didn’t get its best until the last third. In the large family our protagonist meets, she serves as grandmother and as the head of the family.

The world of Summer Wars is technologically similar to ours, with one exception: everything runs on the Oz system, and I mean everything, it’s on every cell phone and computer and controls even public services. Gaming, education, communication, it’s like a different form of the internet that has more direct influence over the physical world.

For reasons I won’t bore you by explaining, the Oz system starts running amok. Fire hydrants are bursting, traffic lights are haywire, communications are down, havoc has ensued. Lives are at stake in this chaos. This badass granny is having none of that. To protect everyone from the flaws of the new generation’s methods, she utilizes a secret weapon of the old generation’s methods: a landline phone.

Using nothing but a phone and her own influence, she single-handedly communicates emergency services in the area. The damage is contained, everything gets going again, and in the end, the death count is a whopping zero. ***SPOILERS: DON’T READ PAST HERE IF YOU WANT TO WATCH THE MOVIE*** Even in death, her words are able to move the hearts of her family and bring them together to survive the crisis that faces them. She had influence, she had experience, she had knowledge, and she knew how to sing a swan song.

So in last night’s episode of Soul Eater Not, we were introduced to a character I think another character I know would like. I noticed her name is Cana, which reminds me of Fairy Tail’s own tarot-using Kana/Cana. Must be some correlation between tarot cards and the name.
