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.

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

Time to Start Kicking My Business Up A Notch

So I kicking things up a notch with my company and brand ideas so I decided to setup a gofundme to get fund for my business and as well to help prepared for the possible of surgery i.e. make sure my company can run with some employees while I recover. This may not happen in which I have an idea to start a kind of disability or something for employees such as myself who have disabilities. Anyways, this is what I think is need to start. Here is the gofundme link for my business idea: https://www.gofundme.com/rust-of-all-tradesrutakus

So it goes to say I’ve been in business on and off since 2010 and was in a bad car accident in 2012 where I got permanent back and spine issues with multiple bulging discs from my neck down to my lower back and I still bust my ass harder then some of these healthy fuckers. I do work another job but part of this money is so I can slowly work my way into focusing more on my services and products I already provide and get more inventory to sell as well.

Lately, my brain seems to have been running in overdrive to start try and kick things up a notch to start growing my business and try something new with my ideas. More or less because I find working for other business/people/etc where your nothing but a number and/or just don’t give a shit. So here at Thoughts Of Everything I will be uncensored here because there is just a lot of things that irritate me to no end with work life and other things going on in the world. This web site help me because I can careless if you actually read my post because I know there is always something for someone to read on Thoughts of Everything.

Anyways as Thoughts of Everything is part of my business in that this site if for my creative stuff and hell posting or blogging is in a way creative but this is the home for my music. So Thoughts of Everything is more for me but as soon as I have less time for admin stuff on the site I would like to be able to pay a couple other people to do the admin stuff so I can focus on the creative side of this site and my music. And this is part of the idea I have for Productions of the Human Mind which is also one of my brands/tradenames.

But the main idea is to create a kind of jack of all trades thing. My company name has been Rutakus pronouced Roo-taku-us and has been computer repair/sales and domain name/web hosting reseller for a while. I’m currently playing with my up coming new name Rust of All Trades. Right now my business is making enough money to maintain all current company bills and still have some income but at this this not enough to survive off of where i can leave my current job and be able to focus on providing service and thinking of new innovative ideas.

Anyways today is my nephew’s birthday who took his own life at a young age. Happy Birthday Travis Crane. I love and miss you man.

Thanks for reading everyone and if you donate to my gofundme please let me know and I will give you paid access on this site.

American Dreamers. Music sometimes…well..um…always really moves me

So lately I have been under a lot of extra not needed stress lately due to some issues at work that I have never experienced or I ever would have believed to have happened to me. But it happened and my anxiety and ultimately my depression has been on the rise. I hate how much emotions can make physical health much worse if you already have issues such as I do with a back and neck injury that doesn’t go away. I have it managed to a point but pains are never going away.  So as I have been feeling like I have been walking on egg shells at work with this situation that had happened, because I’m a goofy white man LOL I’m not going to go into that but maybe later in member only content. Anyways, I glad I got this site up and running again as it is kind of like my therapy. Anyways, before I begin I will say that I listen to just about everything from rock, metal, rap, blues and even electronic and dance music.

Anyways at the place that the situation had occurred I have been hearing this song playing overhead while I’ve been cleaning the store I felt it was kind of catchy but also I kind of felt a sadness that I couldn’t explain. So I spent sometime looking it up-the internet is so damn awesome-I probably took longer to find them without the net. I basically looked them up by song lyrics in Google. The song is called American Dreamer by Kyd the Band. Very good song and I plan checking out the other songs a bit more later. When I looked up the lyrics I started to understand the sadness a bit more. Maybe I just read to much into things but this is Thoughts of Everything and I the creator am the sole thoughts provider right now at the moment. But I was much moved and glad to have heard this song. In a sense this is how I feel about the girl I am with I want to buy her a house and share it forever. Even hand it down to her daughter. What saddens me is how most who end up in the situation where they lose the house or even when having hard times with making ends meat they fear that person leave them as it happens all the time in society as love seems to a bit more materialistic which doesn’t make a good team at all. But it happens.

Quote from song: “I think I wanna buy you a house
I think I wanna share forever right now
And if the bank man comes to steal it away
I hope you, I hope you stay” American Dreamer by: Kyd the Band

See what I mean. Here is the video as so good:

Thank you Kyd the Band for a great song.;
