Basilisk (Rukun Anime Review)

Basilisk (Rukun Anime Review)

Hello everyone and welcome to an good old anime review post created by yours truly Rukun. This will probably be my first anime review on Thoughts of Everything. And all honesty I haven’t watched anime in a while but here we go with anime review. I would first like to mention I have watched this one I’m reviewing 3 times, twice in English dub and once in Japanese. I own the complete series DVD box set. Wasn’t even planning on writing a blog post review. But here we go.

Basilisk (TV) image

Anime Title: Basilisk – Kōga Ninpō Chō 

Anime Type: TV series

Number of Episodes/Parts: 24 episodes

Genre/Theme: action, drama, romance, supernatural. Themes of this anime historical, ninja, revenge, star-crossed love, tragedy.

Summary:  

The year is 1614 AD. Two warring ninja clans, each supporting a son of Hidetada Tokugawa as the next shogun, send ten representatives each to fight to the death for the possession of a scroll. The prize: the annihilation of the other and the staunch support of the Tokugawa government for the winning clan for the next thousand years.

summary taken from Anime News Network

Own Thoughts or Takes The Anime: I really did enjoy this anime though the story seem to be kind rushed and from those on lookers the story might be hard to distinguish such as my wife did as I was watching while she was in the other room. The reason I find this is a lot of people die and there is so much betrayal between both of the ninja clans. Which is maybe way the story gets hard to follow do to everything happening so fast. Some of the special ninja moves are so damn sick though, some moves will never happen in real life. But this is way I love fantasy and such. Now I have had to watch this 3 times to fully understand and I bought the complete collection box set since I enjoyed the anime.

But there is much more to be send about the story where 2 people from each clan who have been mortal enemies for many years. To make things worse the pact between the clans to keep them from killing each other was dissolved. I’m going to try and not spoil it for you all but I will the hate between the two is so bad the love and happy of the clan mate in love the other person in the other clan makes the sick. But this anime’s fight scenes are fucking brutal. Now I’m giving this anime a rating of 9 because I felt the story felt rushed but still enjoy for a rewatch. Then I watched again to get a better understand of the story for this review. Now at the time of planning this review I didn’t know there is a second of something. So I may have to check it out.

Rating (from a scale of 1-10): 9

We all here hope you continue to do well and would like to thank you for visiting this website/blog as that what start this all. To keep this story short as I, @Rukun the creator of this site plan on having a different page for that. But Thoughts Of Everything is a combination of a making money online or from home blog, an anime blog and an anime website. 

The Thoughts Of Everything website is basically about everything but I mainly created it a for a place to also promote my creative works. Now I plan this for other who become part of our staff. As this post can be edit I’m currently working on having some staff post content soon, such as art work and written works. I already have my music on here. But the creative side is much big and for a latter discussion as the Thoughts Of Everything project is something of it’s own with more to it as we do a lot of investigating of different earning project, including crypto and crypto-mining, lot and different software projects, reviews for many thing including anime, and other geeky stuff.

If Your WordPress Website Owner “Stop Spammers” Is A Plugin You Need

I will say that I have  Hello everyone how are you all doing today? Hopefully your all are being safe out there. I know I’m doing my best to be safe. I think we all get through this and thank you to those we have lost during this whole pandemic thing. With this being said I would also like to thank those of you who are essential workers and/or have been working the whole or most of the pandemic where you live. I have been working myself and again doing my best to stay safe. Sucks that others don’t as much. But I’m waiting to be able to get my vaccine and it sucks as I wasn’t able to qualify even with Asthma and working as a cleaner for a cleaning company. Anyways, that’s enough of that stuff and we shall move on.

So for those who maybe be reading this post and/or visiting this site for the first time, out website, Thoughts Of Everything runs on a blog type website script called WordPress and basically we are a blog and I, Rukun and the owner/creator of this site. But see and have been working on making something bigger then a little blog. But I have a couple of blogs on blogger that I don’t really post on them any more but we still maintain them for historical purposes and I had most of the post so far into this blog and those blog and a community style anime website which is the name of our anime category. But anyways some of the things I write about and investigate bring a lot of haters. I like to write about legit ways to make extra money online and as well also write about scams. Since the full launch of this site I have had one such problem scammer after I had confronted the scammer and the very first post I wrote about the bastard had disappeared after my webserver had got hacked or DDoS attacked while I was sleeping and was unable to recover the original. Since then I had add more then one type of security items to the site since this little bastard and then on top of that pretty much all website owners who allow some sort of communication with their whatever type of website deals with spammers and bots. 

So one such nice little plugin that I installed after this fucking thing pardon my language sorry not sorry but that how I feel. Anyways, this little plugin called Stop Spammers along with another plugin that I believe used to be default with WordPress called limit login attempts which has helped out a lot. Now what is nice about Stop Spammers is that plugin is that it allows you to use such services API keys like StopForumSpam, Project Honeypot, and BotScout. This gives it even more protection the the problematic spammers from around the need mean these ones hit a lot of sites and discussion forums, etc other type of sites.

So with just this bit I have stated I have been using the free version of this plugin and along side Limit Login Attempts Reloaded / Limit Login Attempts on the site for while. It many protections options such as blocking people who using what is called disposable emails to hidden who they are or check for exploits. There is also options for create your own blocklist or block whole countries. Now we don’t currently or hope to ever block any country on this site. Regardless, we have had a lot of extra protection with the Stop Spammers plugin which is kind of one of those must haves if you run a WordPress website and allow users to register. Since I have installed the plugin 2018/04/10 223992 spammers have been blocked by the plugin.

Or at least try too. Well I now realizing how much shit there is to import. My goal was to have it done at by the end of the month. That’s not going to happen now. That’s fine as it more for me then you guys as they already exist online LOL. I just want everything in one area now but will be keeping the originals online as well. Second thing I started working on a page for information and description on what paid access is . As well as how to get it. I created paid access and content for many reason including if legal action or major repercussions from whatever entity . This also help cover the cost of off set my costs of running this web site.

Found my old blogs deep in the net

Well, something I haven’t done a long while but I know I had to do. Maybe you all need to to do this is as well. I was going through my bookmarks in Firefox and cleaning them out of dead links or link I find no longer useful. Sadly, I still had a lot of bookmarks I cleared out were research links that I used while I was in college. But also some dead links to domain names I had or lost. In this pile of bookmarks I found some of my old blogger blogs. Kind of fun finding these and I think what I’m going to do is import them into this blog/web site. Because if it were not for me starting those blogs I’m pretty sure I would have never started Thoughts of Everything. Thanks old blogs LOL.

Anyways over the next couple of weeks I will also be trying to get the forums to better match my layout as somethings are not displaying correctly and it makes it hard to see some of the things in the forums.

Thanks for Reading and don’t forget to sign up and participate in the site.

Well Massively update for the My Massive absence

So I haven’t posted anything here for a good while. And I’m sorry about that although, its not like a lot of people actually sit and read it. But anyways, I’ve been quite busy with job hunting and working contracted IT/Computer jobs. I’ve also been working on an anime/manga website that I’m hoping to have online sometime soon. This site will have a forums, downloads section, and blog like news posting and such. My site will be basically a CMS (Content Managment System) website. As I’m still doing a lot of the configuration with the site and database. I’m not ready to put it up online yet. Plus I’m still working on getting the funds to pay for 5 months of web hosting (currently looking at different hosting services)XD. So with this said I’m not sure if I will keep this blog up since I will be posting most o my posts there. But I might just keep this one running and double post news items on both. I will probably keep this blog running though, but I think I will need to give it make over. I will probably just design a new layout from scratch.

Other updates I finished watching all the animes in that I had posted it my last post back in February; Soul Eater, Witchblade, REC, Hell Girl, Code Geass R2. Well actually I haven’t finished watch Bleach just yet as it is still on-going. But in fact I actually finished quite a few other animes as well, I’ve almost watch 100 different animes, I’ve actaully at about 96 as you can see from this old post which I keep updating Animes I have completed, but once I have 100 on that list I will stop updating it and just create a new post for each 10 after. Some of those animes in that list I really don’t recommend as they are kind of crappy. For example Psychic Wars and MD Geist II: Death Force were not that great, in fact they were garbage. The only reason I sat and watch them was just to say that I have seen them. I will never watch them again though.

Last piece of updates I had beaten God of War for the PS2 for the first time. I beat it on easy, now I working on beating it on the normal difficulty. I’m also very close to beating Resident Evil 4 on the Ps2 as well. I think that I’m currently on Chapter 5-2.

Well that is it for the moment. Thanks for reading

My First Anime Boxset

After a long awaited time I finally got my first anime box set. My older sister got it for me for my birthday and just got it at around Christmas time. I got all the episodes of Elfen Lied on two dvd disc. Basically I got the box set known as the “Perfect Collection” with all 13 episodes and some of the art work in the extra section of the DVD menu—I think. I haven’t gone through everything in the menus yet. Below are a few images I have taken of this box set. It nothing really special but I love this series.

(This is the front of the DVD case)

(This is the back side of the Elfen Lied boxset)

(Finally the inside of the Elfen Lied box set with the two dvds. First dvd has episodes 1-10, second dvd has episodes 11-13.)

Last thing I would like to mention is that I also got a Naruto 2009 calender for Christmas. But to tell you guys that truth I haven’t watched Naruto yet. I still like the calenders though. Here is the front of the calender.

Anime retail websites get sued for selling Bootleg Anime Dvds

Originally posted on Anime News Network..

The North American anime distributor FUNimation Productions is suing a group of related companies in Southern California for allegedly selling counterfeit DVDs of its licensed anime on a website. FUNimation is alleging that a California resident named Hae Yong Ro and four affiliated businesses — N Trading, Inc, Discount Anime DVD, BuyDVD.com, and DOES — infringed on FUNimation and its licensers’ copyrights and trademarks by selling unauthorized copies of Fruits Basket, Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z, Dragonball GT, and Fullmetal Alchemist. Some of the DVDs are said to have included English dubbing. Read Full article here

Anyways, I found this article to be interesting because it was posted on my birthday and one of the sites was were one of my birthday presents was going to come from. With this said I had to look around and research a bit more to find legitimate anime product retails sites. LOL good thing I didn’t purchase anything from the DiscountAnimeDVD.com site like I was originally planning. I guess to say the it can be quite hard to trust some web site retail stores these days. Especially if you like collecting anime dvd and such.

BTW, I Originally submitted this post to the Otaku tidbit on generationotaku.net.

But anyways I thought this would be something to share with you all.

Thanks for reading.

New Month New Post XD

Well now it’s a new month. So I hope that you all had a Happy Halloween and stuff. It seems I still slacking off on some anime reviews, hopeful I get one or two done this month. I’ve just been kind of busy. Anyways, well I had a pretty good birthday, had some Korean food for my b-day dinner, mmmmm good. Now I’m waiting to see if I will get my Elfen Lied box set that I had asked for. This will be my first box set. Nothing too much else going on. I started watching Someday Dreamers, which isn’t too bad so far. I also am giving Soul Eater a look as well. I’m still watching Bleach, frist season of Code Geass and Moribito, slowly but surely. I finish the second season of Zero no Tsukaima and started the third season. There are a few other animes I have watched from DVD rented from Blockbuster Total access. But I don’t like the selection of anime blockbuster has. Anyways, that’s about it for the moment. Thanks for reading. 😀
