19 Theme Ch: Gray by SailorEnergy 19 Theme Ch: Gray by SailorEnergy
The 19th theme of Theme Challenge is Gray.

   That is actaully based on my experience when I was in the vicinty of large number of people such as a couple of cruise trips I was on. I was observant of people aboard the ships and most seem to be dull and sorta behaving the same as of they're robots, doing  the same things over and over. The children seems to be "brighter" mainly due to their exictment, playfullness, happiness, randomness along with other stuff, hence, and more fun to watch. ^^; That's just my observation. :)
   I found it amusing to see that there was a similar thing with one Anime I saw recently but I forgot the title. It involved the founders of "Dollars" gang and Color Gangs and a headless "horsewoman" on motorcycle who couldn't speak. The general people in that show are colored gray while only the characters themselves are bright-colored.

Note: The title of Anime is "Durarara!!". Thank you, :iconbjartskularbrisingr1: !

Ark Commander: Reminds me of living on the road as an exile. *he shudders* very gray... Making good use of what I did have....going Bobtail (without a trailer) when I wasn't working... I was scared of dying while living that lifestyle. Yeah, it was that frightening.

The commander and his friends were kicked out of their home town because, while they were trying to track down a homicidal maniac, the mayor wanted them gone. The commander had to turn command of the hunt over to the town mafia. The mafia! Big scary men with fedoras and Tommy Guns! :O

(meanwhile, two robot children are in the crowd with dr ochanomizu hakase are, astro and uran, and their sitting at the chairs of the table, eating dinner, and after they eat dinner, they go play in the playground)

uran: wow, astro, this hall is so beautiful like the one i saw on hakase's computer back in metro city, this is magnificent, ani.
astro: why, yes, uran, it is beautiful, and we're not here for the robot convention for us, it's for hakase (dr elefun), and tenma, (astro's real father), and higeoyaji (daddy walrus), and the rest, while we explore on what's on this hall, uran.
uran: okay, bro, lead the way.
(just then cobalt and chi-tan (in cobalt's arms) comes to see astro and uran)
cobalt: hi guys.
chi-tan: (babbles in hello)
uran: hi cobalt, hi chi-tan
astro: hi cobalt, hi chi-tan
(and both are talking and laughing in the hall)

Heh, feels the same to me in crowded buses. XD
Oh, I know that anime you're talking about in the description! :D (Big Grin) It's called "Durarara!!" or just "DRRR!!" (funny that the creator himself said that it means actually nothing, and the title came up to his mind when talking to his boss with a dialoge like:
- So what's the title of your new series?
- <in his mind: Gosh, I don't know yet> Du.. Durarara?
- Sounds great! Lets add two interjection marks to it!
and it stays like it). Actually, I adore that anime (one of the first I watched) and manga, being a big fan since the start of the second season. :D (Big Grin) The original version ("light novel" book) was released in my country not a month ago, and I was so surprised that I was screaming with happines and running over my whole home. XD
I really like that trend with gray people in the episodes too. :D That moment when all members of Dollars have been revealed somewhere in the end of the first arc was priceless...

  yes but as you know "No rules" rule is starting to rear its ugly side in the 2nd season. :nod:

Thanks!

Nice! :D Sadly, we don't have any kind of those tv-like-sites in Poland yet, and anime (unlike manga) aren't often published in DVD or Blu-Rays. Heck, right now there are even no tv channels wich would emiting them, so the only way to watch anime for me is piracing on free websites. :(

Right, it also sounds kinda political... Ah, that series showed a lot of stuffs. No wonder I almost cried in the last episode...

You're welcome. :)

Oh, would it has to do do with Poland's cultural background? I'm just wondering since people tend to prefer something that are made by their own people. Sailor Moon had a rough start in North America because of its "Made in Japan" animated style.
   I know that there are a few fanatic Christains in USA who see Anime/Manga as "Works of Devil". =_=;; ":facepalm:

Yep, it did show why anarchy can be dangerous espeically when one throws in a bunch of bad people. :nod:

:D

BjartskularBrisingr1 Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2016
Well, not really. There was a time when everything from Asia was considered as "Made in China" thing, but now it's more twisted. I guess the reason is that there is not much anime-lovers from now and tv channels don't want to spend money on something like "serious cartoons", and all companies that tried to sold anime on DVD were going bankrupt wery quicky. Unlike anime, we have lots of mangas from many publishers and just a year ago they've started publishing light novels.
Actually, Poland doesn't look like "loving our culture" country. Mainly because many Polish people are leaving to another countries for better wages (our salarys are really low right now for many jobs, sometimes it's just 2000 złotych ("złoty" is our currency)  per year, while in other countries in Europe you can get into the same job end make ten times more money then in Poland). The ones who calls themself "real patriots" are very often just a silly guys who think that we're so mighty and everyone else is bad, mainly brainwashed by some
propaganda history...
Well, it's kinda the same with heavy metal music, but I haven't heard anything about that in Poland for a years... Also, they may think it's evil because of all those stupid hentai and yaoi/yuri stuffs(ESPECIALLY yaoi stuffs, you can see it almost everywhere now). People throw
everything into one bag very often and here are the effects. -_-

Yep, the ending also showed that you can't just find "unnormal life" to not being bored with
normality. It was actually a good lesson to me who was always like "Weird stuffs! Unnormal stuffs! Unusual life! Gimme, gimme!". Sweating a little...

SailorEnergy Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yep. :nod: It's same with "Made in China" stuff around in USA also.  There's also this "Cartoons are for children" bias that are still going strong which is ironic considering how the 1930s cartoons were made for older audiences and 1950s cartoons had few adult jokes in them. :)
 
  Ouch, that does seem tough to live in Poland. USA has have too many low wage jobs and too few middle-class jobs lately.

Yep, the people generally do tend to let themselves get carried away by their own emotions. Then you have the teens who tend to prefer something different. :nod:

 It seems that there is really no such a thing as normal since there are so many people with so different minds/ideas/whatever. I'm deaf so that's not normal. :)

Yep, not to mention that 1990's and 2000's had some hidden adult jokes too. But the newest cartoons for kids seem kinda stupid and nonesense to me. How could children educate themself with something like this...? <still crying because of twerking Powerpuff Girls>

Oh, it seems very disproportionately. But worse thing is that we have lots, I mean LOTS of taxes so we have far less money in our own pockets then we earn at work. All those nonsense taxes like PIT, CIT or VAT are in ridiculous rates. We have even a tax for inheritance stuffs. My parents needed to pay almost 10 000 złotych for the money I own after selling the house I've got from my deceased grandfather in his testament. What will our government do now? Nothing or worse. They've said not so long ago that they'll reduce VAT's rate from 23% to 21%. They didn't. Did you heard that the want to make a tax for a rainwater? No joking, they want to add melted snow too.

Yep, but that's quite lame that from peoples like that other people are making those stupid stereotypes like "drunken, car-stealing Poles" or "Slavic
workforce". -_-

I'm quite unnormal listening to heavu metal music and having all annoying
ailments like defect of vision with over -5 diopters or scin problems, but I guess the thing that makes me not normal now is that I have a beliefs that really few people still had. Sometimes something that was normal few years ago may be unnormal next year, so that's why I don't follow the fashion. XD

Yep. I have seen some of those recent cartoons and i do agree. Steve Universe and Legend of Korra stool out as one of the better ones. :)

  I thought the original Powerfull Girls were too violent. :XD:

Yep, they say that USA is the most expensive country to do a business in with all of the regulations and taxes. :nod: So similar situation. We do have a tax on water use in drought-prone areas to prevent people from overusing water. The corporations usually pay about 25% in taxes and that does not include sales tax, inventory tax, income tax along with few I can't recall.  What do you expect from the politicians?  Gridlock is quite common. :/

Yes, I have seen this "Drunken and over-religious Polish" stereotype (due to 90% being catholic). :nod: I wouldn't be surprised if there are any stereotypes about Americans (don't call Canadians, the "Americans").

Heheh, yep, everything always change. :nod:  You do seem to be doing well even with those ailments. ^_^
