Best Animate shows for Adults

Alright I tend to avoid list, so please note that these are not in any sort of order! Basically the only reason I am doing this is cause unlike most fools I do have a grand love for all things animated(from anime, to kids shows), and I don’t feel like enough people understand that it’s not just for kids. As well as that I am trying to find a new show similar to these and all that ever comes up is family guy or the Simpsons! So if you know of any feel free to let us know.

Archer

ARCHER:

Alright I know it’s an obvious one but bear with me, not nearly enough people I know have watched it. Basically it’s a show about what not to do if you’re a spy, you know simple things like don’t date co-worker, don’t come into work drunk and don’t piss of a cyborg… you know the basics!

All of the Avatar Series

legend-of-korra2

So this is a kids show but like everything I am mentioning it does not deserved to be overlooked. Both shows follow the journey of the Avatar, a person who in each generation has the power to control all four of the elements. Honestly despite the fact that it is indeed a kids show  I would have to say that this show deals with more emotional growth and doubt (such as Zukos Journey) than any of the best dramas on tv. seriously if your kids can tell this you should be old enough to cope on to it as well.

Rick and Morty

rick-and-morty

So moving away from kids shows Rick and Morty is exactly what it says on the tin, its a show about a mastermind-scientist-alcholic-grandad and a not-so-bright Morty. Honestly it just about adventure’s they go on, which isn’t as lame as I am making it out to sound, it honestly pretty decent.

Fairy Tail

I don’t care how old you are this show is ridiculously good. It takes place in a land with magic where a troublesome and excentric guild exist by the name of fairy tail. Its one of the funniest shows I have ever seen, with characters that I wont even try to explain with words… seriously just watch it

FullMetal Alchemist

banner_528This show it not for the faint of heart, within the first few episode you watch as two young boys attempt to defy the laws of alchemy to bring back their mother from the dead, one losing an arm and the other his body. And I promise you it doesn’t get much happier after that. Its set in a world where the laws of alchemy exist, as you balance out what you take by giving an equal portion back to the world. It filled with “major” and more often than not, tragic plot twist as the two boys attempt to return to their original bodies, while getting caught in the middle of an all out civil war.

Daria

All I can say is that if you have a dry, and I mean like Sahara dessert dry sense of humour, this is the show for you

Death Note

death-note-death-note-666036_576_460Another dark anime here about your normal honour student who happened to get his hands on a Death note, allowing him the power to kill at will, a power he embraces. All he needs is a name and a face and you can be dead as he see’s fit. Corrupted by this power he attempts to cleanse the world by killing all villains and thugs, while a mysterious man who goes under the alias “L” follows in hot pursuit. Out of everything I ever watched I have to say the ending for the first season of this was one of the most well written that I have come across, although I am not gonna lie its best to stop their, the only good thing about season two is the weird opening credits.

Ugly Americans

5147071719_3272626a40I know I said that I wasnt doing a list but I did save the best for last. Ugly Americans takes place in New York, in the department of integration, where zombies, demons and vampires go to get citizenship. Its full of reference that I can promise you’re not to old or young to not get and it just brilliant from the concept to the zombie roommate to the demon boss. Their only 20 minutes long and only two season, I promise it wont take up that much of your like!

The Stop Motion Jazz

Right so I mentioned my project last time for my stop motion piece ‘The Everyday Situationist’ and I taught that I would show you a simple way for making your own stop motion. Keep in mind this was just a prototype and will be easy to replicate if you wanna try it.

Basically it involves a camera and slowly moving a piece in front of a camera .And its in these pictures that make a frame, which when placed together can make a short video piece. Depending on how realistic you want the video to be you can add more frames a second, which takes more time and will power to only change the object in the frame as slightly as possible between frames. For how I made my actual video you need a live feed from a DLSR camera and a program for stop motion (if you use dragon frame theirs a months free trial and it’s pretty decent) and from then on it pretty simple, until you get to the joys of editing the video piece together (with movie maker, or premiere)

The Everyday Situationist set

So the Situationist art movement was a movement unlike any other, and the movement that I got placed with for my final assessment for college. Basically what they wished to do was create a new everyday, where people wouldn’t be burdened with the mundanely of the nine to five. One of my favorite artist of this Constant Nuremberg ,who took this philosophy and created what he referred to as a New Babylon.

So it’s with this movement and man, that I pieced together my own reality in a short video titled “The everyday Situationist” which I will upload shortly. Underneath is the set that I made for the production, fell free to let me know what you think;

Dragon Ball Z

So like most people I watch Pokémon and Dragon Ball Z as a kid, and despite how ridiculous they would look on a real person, I still find myself loving the hair styles they had (all I am saying is that between blond dye and hair gel I would hate to see what Goku had spent on his hair, per episode) And as a kid, on the old playstation (yes that thing that hiding in a shoe box in your cupboard) I realised that I would love to go into animation growing up, so here’s a tribute post I guess. As well for any former fans of Dragon Ball Z check out teamfourstar (google it!), it unreal. So hope you enjoy and Keep Posted…

 

Avatar

So I when you think about 3D, 9 times out of 10, Avatar comes to mind. It MAY not be the first 3D movie but I have no doubt that is iconic in the fact that it was the first realistic 3rd Dimensional Movie, followed closely by UP, Tangled, and a whole range of movies. As well as this NOBODY could possible deny that its story line was amazing and I have no shame (alright maybe a little shame) in saying that I was on the edge of my seat in anticipation all throughout the movie (well not all throughout, it was 3 hours, but you get the idea)

Anyway I figured it was worthy of a post for film Thursday, if you haven’t seen it buy a 3D tv and watch it, and as always Hope you Enjoy and Keep Posted…

Doodle 4 Google

Hello again. So last year I entered this competition called doodle 4 google, and the prize is a grant for the school (YAWN), but what I was interested in was the fact that your doodle would be a feature on the google (haha, yes. yes doodle for google), home page. So I entered and made it to the regional finalist and then lost to a child still in primary school (all I am saying is BRIBE) Alright the kids design was great, I was just being bitter.

So I posted up a few doodles I found on the net and Hope you enjoy and Keep Posted…

Disney

Good evening. Soo every child has grown up watching Disney movies. Not that I still watch them (alright Tangled was amazing) so I thought it’ll be cool to do a short post about it. So you know that, Mickey Mouse, a true talking mouse of ever there was one (sorry Tom), was but the beginning to the world of animation that we know of today.

I have to say that watching Disney movies and programs through the years is a great example of how the world of animation had shaped itself, into the phenomena it is today.Hope you enjoy and Keep Posted…
