Reaching You 2 #00 — Sparkly Bubbly Eldritchy

January 4th, 2011


This is much more amusing if you push the bass to full and turn out all the lights.

The Horror In Clay:

The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.

Theosophists have guessed at the awesome grandeur of the cosmic cycle wherein our world and human race form transient incidents. They have hinted at strange survivals in terms which would freeze the blood if not masked by a bland optimism. But it is not from them that there came the single glimpse of forbidden eons which chills me when I think of it and maddens me when I dream of it. That glimpse, like all dread glimpses of truth, flashed out from an accidental piecing together of separated things – in this case an old newspaper item and the notes of a dead professor. I hope that no one else will accomplish this piecing out; certainly, if I live, I shall never knowingly supply a link in so hideous a chain.

20 Shouts From the Peanut Gallery

  • alex says:

    so in other words was the ep. good or not ?

  • firecow says:

    @Alex, Does it matter? Aroduc hates this kind of show and he just went bat insane again. He also mention this this during the season preview too in case you didn’t check. Also I hate this show too because it’s boring after watching 5 episodes of this crap that I just dropped it. I don’t know about the other folks who likes this show but I can’t stand it either.

  • sage says:

    Last show you joked about it being Eldritchy was Motto To-LOVE-Ru, and that apparently turned out to be good.

    I’m not crossing my fingers for this one, though.

  • Aldonaris says:

    Talkin about Lovecraft, did you see Nyaruki or whatever is called that flash crap ? Man, even worse than sparkles and bubbles 2.

  • Rewriter says:

    The “summary” text made me laugh for a good minute or two, especially the preview text. Thanks Aroduc!

    And this show can suck my dick.

  • Jack says:

    Awesome Lovecraft quote.

    It’s actually pretty amazing how much Lovecraft has seeped into various cultures (American, European & Asian). I don’t think people realize just how profound of an influence he has become.

  • Ixidor_Real says:

    He cried in a whisper at some image, at some vision—he cried out twice, a cry that was no more than a breath—”The horror! The horror!”
    – Joseph Conrad, Heart of Darkness

  • Yue says:

    I can hear the fangirls miles from every direction scream and I quote,

    “Kyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhh!! Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!!”

    • Nanaya says:

      You’re forgetting the torrents of “OMG!”, “soooooooo [adjective]”, “Wahh~”, “KAWAII”, “[line with random letter CAPITALIZED for IMPACT]” and “>.<" (taken directly from the mu series pages when I went to investigate).

      • Yue says:

        And when you thought only a few girls watch anime, only to have your coffee cabana spill in suprise to their enmassed shrieking high~pitched glees.

        Then they force you to listen to their chatter for eons. XD

      • Nanaya says:

        Oh god, you just reminded me of this time I was playing an mmo in a guild and a rival guild came over to trash talk us. It was entirely of girls talking about how “sanzui” our base was (that was the only word not in English, and was used literally every freaking sentence).

        I have never since tried that hard to throttle somebody through my computer screen.

  • Solaris says:

    Whatever he sniffed to write that must have beeen very good stuff.

  • qwertz says:

    So there really exist people who are watching this utter crap?

  • Mesousa says:

    Again, I don’t see what’s so bad about this show. It’s just a romance show. It doesn’t look interesting to me, but it doesn’t look horrible.

    Sora no Otoshimono, now that’s a show that shoudl such my dick.

  • Nanaya says:

    @Mesousa – You weren’t here for the days of Kanokon, I take it. That show makes Otoshimono look a type-moon plot, they took the series and replaced whatever plot there may have been with [even more] fanservice. It got so bad it circled around and somehow became watchable for the wrong reasons.

  • Celestial says:


  • The Phantom says:

    I will never watch something like this, even the SS look retarded, where is my quote of anime violence of this season? I’m starving for animated blood and gore.
