I didn’t realize 15 days have gone by ever since I started playing Diablo III @_@ Sorry for the backlog. Luckily, I was somehow freed from the temptation of the Burning Hells after getting one-shotted a few thousand times by the smallest fries in Act II of Inferno. I guess you can call this a sabbatical.
In other news, I’ve kept myself busy by watching Kaicho wa Maid Sama, Midori no Hibi, Nazo no Kanojo X, Sankarea, all of which I promise to blog next, and of course, you guessed it, Young Justice. Thanks once again to Nerd Herd PH for informing me of this great show.
Me and my friends’ first impression of YJ is that it sounded like a porn flick, and that it’s gonna be another Teen Titan kiddie cartoon. But just by watching the first two episodes, I can conclude that it’s not. If you’ve watched Justice League and Justice League Unlimited before, some episodes from this series would offer a much darker setting that would morbidly break down our young heroes’ mental, emotional and spiritual state.
The story starts in the fictional universe of DC during a time period where superheroes are a relatively recent phenomenon, as the Justice League is only about 6-7 years old. In the first episode “Independence Day“, the day is spent defeating four ice villains attacking four different cities, and that the sidekicks are pretty much excited about ‘The Day’. It is later revealed that ‘The Day’ is step 1 in making them full-pledged members of the league.
Much to Aqualad, Robin (Dick Grayson), Kid Flash (Wally West) and Speedy’s disappointment, step 1 only meant granting them full access to the Hall of Justice in DC, which is supposedly a decoy base in contrast to their real base in space called the Watchtower.
The hot-headed Speedy was enraged and decided to ditch the heroes and his sidekick friends. He would later go solo in the alias of Red Arrow. The Justice League then takes off on a mission, advising the sidekicks to ‘Stay put.’ Feeling they’re just being babysitted around, Robin hacks the computer to look for other anomalies they can investigate while the leaguers have their hands full.
