About Killswitch

I'm just a guy with many varied interests and opinions.

Ange Vierge (Anju Vieruju)

Published by:


This show was from the summer 2016 season. It was one of the shows I thought of passing but once I start something I usually can’t stop because I want to know if a train wreck becomes good or a good show goes bad, etc.

The premise of the show is the fusing of 5 worlds and girls from each world must come together to stop it from happening. Each of the girls has special powers called Exceed power and they’re based on the worlds they come from. They stay on an island in the Pacific Ocean where they train and hone their capabilities.

Qualidea Code

Published by:

Qualidea Code is a show from summer 2016. It’s one that I don’t even want to waste too many words on. It’s one of those shows that starts out as one thing then rapidly turns into something else and they rush to finish it with another horrible twist. It’s like they didn’t know what direction to go with it so they tried everything. Continue reading

Trinity 7

Published by:

Arata Kasuga is “cursed” with something known as the Collapse Phenomenon which has the capability of destroying the world and there are people after him for this power. Some want to be able to abuse him power and there are others who want to kill him so this power doesn’t fall in the wrong hands. The ones looking to kill him are the girls of Biblia Academy. The girls each have their own powers based on the seven deadly sins so they are definitely capable of taking him out. What Arata doesn’t know is that the girls of the Academy may be his only hope of understanding the phenomenon and saving his cousin who seems to have disappeared because of it. Continue reading

Yuri Seijin Naoko-san

Published by:

I’m going to keep this short and sweet. This has to be the absolute worst drek I ever had the displeasure of watching. I don’t know how there are people who try to justify this crap. I even watched it twice to see if maybe it was just me but no. Japan already has issues with lolicons and all this pedophile bait like the Fate series with the little girls and Eromanga Sensei but this is just the worst. Well there are probably worse but this one is bad.

It’s about an alien who is trying to “yurify” the world. She tries saving a girl’s brother from some pedophile alien and keeps talking about the kid’s “appendage”. She makes calls from under a little girl’s skirt…don’t ask me that’s just how she has to make calls. I just can’t….

It’s only an OVA but they had the nerve to make 2. Have you ever seen me rate anything with less than 2 stars? This is getting a 1/2.

Shikabane Hime (Corpse Princess)

Published by:

Here’s one I went way back for. Well not THAT far back but this is one that most people seem to have ignored. At least the people I know of anyway.

The show is based around a concept of “Shikabane Hime” which is after being murdered, some people come back with the goal of killing 108 regular shikabane to earn entry into heaven. Aiding the Shikabane Hime is a contracted monk. They have to have a contracted monk or they become ordinary shikabane which is basically a zombie that’s out of control for one reason or another. Makina is one such Shikabane Hime with the goal of avenging her family who was killed by a group known as the Seven Stars. Continue reading

My LG v20 Nightmare is Over

Published by:

In December I got an LG v20 and don’t get me wrong, it was a great phone WHEN IT WORKED. My problem occured about a month after getting it where the camera glass shattered on it’s own. I put it down for the night on my nightstand and when I got up in the morning it was shattered. I had phone insurance on it but they still wanted $250 for a cheap piece of plastic which should have never made it into the phone. Supposedly my warranty was voided by this manufacturer defect. If I have insurance then why the hell would I pay for a manufacturer defect. I’m not the only one who has this issue. Check the web and you will see.

So of course I went to the insurance company and tried again but got the same response. I emailed LG and got a response 2 weeks later but then when I replied to that, they didn’t answer. So now I bring it to AT&T’s attentnion. I didn’t want to blame AT&T for the issue because it’s not their fault LG is a bunch of scumbags. I saw Verizon and T-Mobile just replacing some of these phones so I thought it was worth a shot since other knew about this defect.

Now I’m about a month in with a busted camera. I contacted LG on Twitter at @LGUSAMobile and @LGUS. @LGUS said refer to the other so I did. After a few weeks of getting nowhere with @LGUSAMobile (who took like a week between replies) they decided to block me. I’m a customer with a $850 defective phone and they blocked me because I was trying to get help. @LGUS did nothing. During this time I also sent an email to all the LG executives I could find to report their poor customer service and of course there was no response.

Imagine this as a picture sent to you by your contractor who’s working on your house. Thanks LG…

After a while I found the part in China and it took 39 days to get here. I got it from Aliexpress. It was an OEM part but here’s the kicker. So many people had the issue and these parts disappeared. I wouldn’t doubt LG found them and bought them all so they could keep trying to get $250 to fix a part that costs like $20 if even that. Probably around $10 to actually make it.

#shattergate is real and don’t fall for the BS.

The part is simple to replace. It’s just a bunch of really tiny screws that hold it in.

Here are places you can get the part:

I’m a contractor by trade and installed LG products all that time but after this nightmare I will never touch another LG product. I’d get rid of this tablet that came with the phone if it didn’t have an ETF. I am done with them. A company that treats people like this doesn’t deserve good customers and I can see why some people avoid them. I never had an issue in the past but now I will NEVER buy or install another LG product.

Luckily I now have an s7 Edge I got as a warranty replacement. At least I know Samsung will take care of their customers where LG doesn’t even give a damn.

Keijo!!!!!!!! (Hip Whip Girl!)

Published by:

Keijo. One of the most “controversial” animes in a long time even though there’s no reason for it other than people wanting to stand on a soapbox and be loud. The show is about a “sport” known as Keijo. It’s a women only sport where girls/women have to knock each other off these floating platforms known as “land” or other structures that are situated above bodies of water. There is one other aspect though, they can only use the breasts or butts. The show revolves around their training to become high earning players. Continue reading

Tamako Market

Published by:

I picked up Tamako Market because some of the voice actors in it. Without them I might not have watched even though it’s by one of my favorite studios, Kyoto Animation.

The show centers around Tamako, eldest daughter of a family who runs a mochi shop. One day she’s walking along and comes across a strange talking bird named Dera who is on a mission. Dera endulges himself a little too much and becomes too fat to fly so he becomes a freeloader at the mochi shop. The show follows Tamako, her friends, family and neighbors through their everyday life and Dera’s mission. Continue reading

World Trigger (Wārudo Torigā)

Published by:

World Trigger was a show I got into because I was being bombarded with ads from Crunchyroll. At first I didn’t want to want the show because the “enemy” were called neighbors. Which seemed absolutely ridiculous at the time but those ads were relentless so I had to check it out. Another thing that got my attention was that the show was greenlit for 50 episodes and I’m tired of shows only getting 12 episodes to try to tell a story. Most shows end up rushed or unfinished due to the lack of enough episodes.

Brief synopsis: Mikado City is where the events of World Trigger take place. One day a gate to another world opens and these monsters known as ‘neighbors’ come through the gate. Of course everyone is afraid of them, especially since Earth weapons have no affect on them. Then a mysterious group known as Border enters the scene to fight them off. 4 1/2 years later, a new gate opens where Yuma comes to Earth. Yuma and Osamu meet at school where Yuma is adjusting to Earth life and Osamu looks like an ordinary student. Not too long after, a new gate opens and Osamu reveals he’s a Border trainee and tries to fight off the ‘neighbor’ but it’s too strong for him so Yuma joins the fray. This is only the beginning, trust me. Continue reading

Kemono Friends

Published by:

Well the season is over and I thought this would be the first one I threw out my thoughts about. Yes I know I have like 3-4 seasons to catch up writing about but anyway…

Kemono Friends, the anime that seemed to take Japan and fan art by storm. It’s crazy to think this show would be such a runaway hit. I doubt it is over here in the US but in Japan it definitely made waves.

The show is one that seems to be aimed at kids but it was on late at night which leads you to believe there is more to it than meets the eye. When you first look at the show you will probably say something like “what the hell is this”. It has some very very janky CGI, a friendly “meet the animals” type theme and it doesn’t give off anything that would seem more mature or adult. Though you can tell something apocalyptic happened. I will say the background art is okay. Continue reading
