I watched under 5 seconds of OP Themes instead of the Season (The Experiment Series)


First impressions matter. You have 25 minutes and I got less than 5 seconds per show. Watching anime is such a herculean task. Sitting through 25 minutes of uninterrupted animation, paying attention, and reading subtitles. That, that is something I wouldn’t say. Even so, the prospect of checking out every show that comes out each season is not something I’m terribly fond of. It’s like fishing. Pick a few and let the rest be. I’d compare it to watching every show that comes out in a certain channel just because I happen to like that channel. Much like fake tanning, I just don’t that. Continue reading

I watched Chu2koi and with only one Eye (The Experiment Series)

chu2koi experiment one eye

> Minus one eye. Sure, why don’t you?

Imagine that, you now temporarily can only see through one eye and only eye alone. What do you do as of that moment, aside from being troubled by the hypothetical idea of such abrupt imposition on your sense of sight, questioning what brought such request, and wondering exactly how many minutes and seconds means temporarily?

The thought alone is troubling, isn’t it. Understandably rarely does one willingly gives up gift of vision even momentarily unless there is a reason. From letting the individual know what is happening to what isn’t, vision plays one of the biggest roles in anyone’s existence shaping the world around them. Its importance goes beyond anything that could be stated to the degree that it would be far an easier task to list what one couldn’t do without it. So then whatever happens in the case the experimenter momentarily can only see through one eye. Whatever happens in the case a certain eyepatch comes into play. Whatever happens the world for that short amount of time. Whatever happens to our vision.

Such is the case.  Continue reading

I watched Jintai’s OP while Playing Un/Fitting Music (Experiment Series)

In The Experiment Series we’ve watched backwards, without sound, without subtitles, and so many others. A fundamental aspect in the art of experimenting that hasn’t been addressed, that is, one of the barriers that hasn’t been broken until now is to fully portray we mean and actually do here.

There is only so much that can be explained with words and clever pictures about how the experiments are carried out. The opportunity has presented to take it to the next level Continue reading

I watched Koichoco and messed up the Aspect Ratio (Experiment Series)

It’s time for another experiment. It’s all about changing the ways we view things by forcibly abruptly modifying a video in different ways imaginable and listing both positive and negative findings. Remember all those BD/DVD, TV, Blu-ray comparisons pics online? Well, this is nothing like that.

The video aspect ratio is the ratio a video keeps when it is normally played. It can manually change to different ratios though this however seldom happens as the original video mostly does the job. But why would you change them in the first place? Why wouldn’t you if the predetermined ratio isn’t of your liking? Everyone has their preferences. Me, I’m all for a full screen picture, no window borders, or volume controls visible. I only want to see picture. I want to see the video without being distracted from the story.

This experiment is going to keep me distracted. Continue reading
