Review: Zetman

Plot Summary: There are two forces in the world: the Zet, who are entrusted with the survival of humanity, and the Alphas, who have chosen an extreme form of justice. In a certain city, Jin lives under a bridge with an old man, struggling to pay off debts. He carries the destiny of humanity’s survival. Kouga lives on a hill and stands to inherit vast wealth. In his admiration for heroes, he seeks out the meaning of justice. They don’t know it now, but they are destined to one day meet.

The moment I saw the trailer to this Anime I thought of Guyver, at last they made something similar with the same dark tone. Zetman was heading in that direction and Zet was a cool character, with him slowly developing his powers fighting monsters. It picks up pace but then it just doesn’t grab you 100% and the other characters get a bit annoying, Kouga develops as well half way through as another main character and honestly I don’t care for him. The story diverts a little too much, even forcing a ridiculous romance, Zet is a badass and they should have capitalized on it. Its a fun anime but don’t get your expectations too high.

Kuwait Won The Gulf Cup 2010!

KuwaitFootball

Kuwait has won the Gulf Cup against some tough odds, our guys played well and beat out the competition. I don’t I have been this excited watching football in a long time. Our guys held out against the Saudis who were playing pretty roughly but the game was a really good game, both teams had some good shots but at the end it was a clear goal by Walid Ali to score 1-0 in the first half of extra time. When the whistle was blown I think Kuwait went into hysteria, we went out into the streets and everyone was honking, waving flags, dancing, clapping, and all kinds of fun. It just felt so good that we had something to be proud of at last, we haven’t had good news such as this in a long time that Kuwaitis just want to be happy and having fun. I don’t think there is a country in the Middle East that could have gone as crazy as we did last night, every highway, to every road, to every house was packed and celebrating insanely! Congratulations to the players who made us a very happy country! We are tired of the politics, of the constant problems, the stagnant country, and just all these stupid issues. These players have managed to unite a country in a sea of joy and we will welcome them back with open arms, thank you!
