Destructoid is an awesome place.
Suddenly reminded of one of the few doramas I actually really enjoyed, Byakuyako. Will be rewatching it in the near future. See if it still holds up.
Physical proof I was at PAX in spirit.

Interesting how Game of Thrones is now as far as the Ice and Fire book series was when the audience already gathered what the entire ending would be. Except the TV audience is still afraid of seasonal spoilers.
Not even knocking the audience, but the quality of the TV show and their presentation of the story. It’s almost scary how afraid they are of building up a story, giving background information, or setting up an event. They just sort of happen, often without so much as a reason as to why this event took place, or why any of it matters. Then, as they cut away the warnings, the signs, the roads to events, they often skip out on massive events too because they don’t have the budget for them.
Time constraint is often brought up as a reason why something isn’t there, but then they’ll add endless amount of fluff (*cougheverythingthey’redoingwitharyacough*) that doesn’t do anything, while that time could have spent on better things (*coughagaineverythingaryahasdoneinthebookscough*). It doesn’t give any extra story, or any extra character development, it just gives some extra padding to make an episode the full length without building towards whatever it is that is going to happen out of nowhere next.
No shit, TV audiences never see anything coming, or still have problems recognizing names from the franchise after all these years. Watching Game of Thrones for the story is like watching kids dressed as Dragonball Z characters recreate scenes from the show on YouTube to try and understand the story.
