<![CDATA[team gan-gan gurren - Blogs from Mar. 9th. to NOW!]]>Mon, 16 Nov 2015 15:01:49 -0800Weebly<![CDATA[what's in a name? Everything!]]>Wed, 20 May 2015 16:00:01 GMThttp://blackstarrules.weebly.com/blogs-from-mar-9th-to-now/whats-in-a-name-everything
Hey hey hey people! What is up? BlackStar here and welcome back to C.S.K. Studios on this fine Thursday afternoon! How is everyone today? I'm doing good, thanks for asking! So, as promised, I did a bit of research and, as it turns out, there are a LOT of C.S.K. Studios out there. One I found the most was this one.
As it turns out, this "CSK Studios" is based in Los Angeles and is a design studio. Now then, I would be a bit mad about his, but as it turns out, they've been inactive since 2012, so, since they're not open anymore, the name is technically free.
Now then, with that being said, it got me thinking. I mean, I only found this one result, but what if there are more CSK STUDIOS out there? What if someone wants me to shut down the website just because of that name? We can't let that happen, right? So, just as a safety measure, my friends and I have been thinking of alternative names just in case we do need to change it last minute. What are those names? Well...we can't tell you just in case someone steals THOSE names as well. I know, I know. It's complicated as heck, but it makes sense if you think about it enough. Well, with that out of the way, I best be off guys. And hey! Wait until tomorrow! Gatsby and Lord Canti have this game theory to present, and then there's gonna be a new segment from Axum that you'll just have to wait a see to find out what it is! Until next time, this is BlackStar, logging off!

<![CDATA[a true review]]>Tue, 19 May 2015 19:00:02 GMThttp://blackstarrules.weebly.com/blogs-from-mar-9th-to-now/a-true-reviewPicture
What is up people! BlackStar here, along with Gatsby Haslyn, and welcome back to C.S.K. Studios! TODAY, we have a pressing matter to get to and we are PRETTY LATE of doing so.
Affirmative. Salutations everyone. Gatsby Haslyn at your service and, as it turns out, we were going through the statistics and survey entries of the website and we came across a rather old one from February 5th, 2015. We both read the review, which was appropriately worded, and we're here to discuss it with you today. The review is only a few short sentences and is posted below.

"Hi, this is Anonymous. I noticed that this site targets a very select group of people. Expanding the contents of the site to include a wider range of topics would spark interest in more of the general public. I also incurred that much of the published writing needs editing. There are few grammatical errors, but in many cases fluency and proper diction are not fully present. This being said, I understand that "C.S.K. Studios" is not a professional writing blog, and therefore I suppose some leniency can be used in its review. Thank you for your time."
Okay. OKAY. I think I understand what this "Anonymous" person is saying. If I am correct, the person is saying that we SERIOUSLY need to broaden our horizon and apple to more people. To be honest, this website has gone to whatever we want to more about videos games and Anime reviews (which are still gonna be here anyway, but less often as before."
And then there's the matter of the name of our organization. C.S.K. Studios is only the first initials of the founders of our little group, but they do have a point. I mean, brother, did you ever check to see if C.S.K. Studios was copyrighted by any chance?
...Well...
I'll take that as a no. And I can see what they mean about the grammatical errors. Even I can say that, even though I check most of the blogs, exhaustion can get to me at times and I do tend to slip up.
And then there's the statement about "fluency and proper diction." Does that have something to with the way we talk?
No brother. Diction is the style of speaking or writing as dependent upon one's choice of words. In simpler terms, it is how one talks, such as the difference between you, Axum, and me.
Oh. I see. Well, I'll just have to try hard. We'll have to try harder.
In the meantime, I suggest that you try to get a copyright on the organization's name before we end up getting a lawsuit against us.
Right! I'm gonna do some research and I'll see you guys tomorrow for the result! Until then, you guys just keep being awesome! I'm gonna leave a link to the survey after our goodbyes so that you can tell us what you think about the website! Well, until next time, this is BlackStar, logging off!
And this is Gatsby Haslyn, wishing you a fine afternoon.
OUr survey!

<![CDATA[it's almost time!]]>Mon, 18 May 2015 22:30:01 GMThttp://blackstarrules.weebly.com/blogs-from-mar-9th-to-now/its-almost-timePicture
HELLO AMERICA! Axum Haslyn here, the badass from the flames, here on this toasty Monday afternoon on the East Coast! How is everyone today? As you can tell, I'm in a GREAT mood because, if you don't already know, SCHOOL IS ALMOST OVER WITH!  As the one and only Axum Haslyn, you guys know all know that I have a strong dislike for school and everything school related. Yeah...you can tell that I may or may not be what you may call "2cool4school".
At least English grammar isn't something that you're majoring in brother. Seriously, using numbers in place of words? How primitive is that?
I'm sorry, what was that Captain Can't-Get-A-Date?
Salutations everyone. Gatsby Haslyn of C.S.K. Studios here, joining my overly obnoxious but loving brother Axum. And we seriously need to start making our closing states because we have work to do Axum. Remember?
Fine fine. We do have to work on tomorrow's blog about why sandwiches are NOT better than a good pizza.
THAT'S NOT AT ALL WHAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT.
Anyway, until then, this is Axum A. Haslyn. PEACE PEOPLE.
And Gatsby Haslyn, wishing you a fine afternoon.

<![CDATA[no schedule policy!]]>Sat, 16 May 2015 14:04:26 GMThttp://blackstarrules.weebly.com/blogs-from-mar-9th-to-now/no-schedule-policyPicture
Hello everybody! What is up my people! BlackStar here and welcome b-b-b-back to C.S.K. Studios! How is everyone today? As you can tell by the picture on the left, I am in a jolly good mood! After talking to Axum, Gatsby, and the rest of the crew, we have decided to send our weekly schedule to the guillotine! THAT'S RIGHT! I've been thinking. I mean, the schedule hasn't been working. We're always worrying about how we're going to meet our deadline and stuff like that, so we were like SCREW IT! We're going back to being insane, spontaneous and all around AWESOME! For those of you who are confused, that means that we'll do whatever we want! We'll post game theories whenever we can, do an anime review whenever we can (preferable whenever I actually FINISH watching one) and we can blog about WHATEVER WE WANT! :D From kittens to murder sprees of course! Well, I best be off. There's a giant world around me and it's not gonna explore itself! This is BlackStar, logging off!

<![CDATA[blackstar's back baby!]]>Fri, 15 May 2015 17:50:59 GMThttp://blackstarrules.weebly.com/blogs-from-mar-9th-to-now/blackstars-back-babyPicture
OH MY GOD. OH MY FREAKING GOD. PEOPLE, I! AM! BACK! OMG I can't believe that it's been over 2 WHOLE MONTHS since I've written a single blog! You guys are still here right? Wait, of course you are. I just checked the stats just before writing this and I have to say, I am honestly surprised about how many people have been showing up daily! Okay, okay. You guys are probably wondering about where in the absolute HELL I have been. Well, as you guys know, I'm a junior in my high school, so I've been trying to finish up and all that jazz so that I don't have to worry about doing anything school related over the summer. Along with that, I have been around the internet. You know, building my fan base around the world. I've been making my videos, I've been one Wattpad for a while now (I have 2 followers! Yay!), I've been on DeviantArt, making art and stuff like that. We've been planning for this summer, so I've been thinking about typing up a bunch of blogs and having Weebly posting them automatically while I work on other things doing the day. Don't worry! I'll still be able to reply to comments that I see, and if I have to make an update, I can always log on and update it before it post! Well, I better get back to work! If you guys are curious for what I've been doing, I'll leave a few links below to EVERYTHING AWESOME! Well, talk to you guys later! This is BlackStar, Logging off!

<![CDATA[SHERLEY'S in repair!  oh no! ;-; ]]>Fri, 27 Mar 2015 13:53:53 GMThttp://blackstarrules.weebly.com/blogs-from-mar-9th-to-now/sherleys-in-repair-oh-noPicture
What is up people? BlackStar here. Welcome back to CSK Studios! So...today's blog is gonna be a bit worry-some. You see, Sherley's in the repair shop. For those of you who don't know who she is, Sherley is the faithful laptop that I used to type my stories, make my videos, and even type the blogs! She's really red, like a Sherley Temple drink, so that's why I call her Sherley. Anyway, after I typed up Wednesday blog about the updates that are going to happen to EVERYTHING, I went out to do a little research for next week's Game Theory on, well, Pokemon. I won't ruin anything. SO...I went to the library, went to the bathroom, came back and her neck was broken. Yeah, I know! The casing was broken off and some of the keys didn't work either! I took it in for repair and now I'm using a loaner laptop that the repair people gave to me. It's a lot lighter, but there isn't any delete key. (You have no idea how much I use the delete key.) It's silver, fragile, and really slow. So I'm pretty much typing on a baby right now. I can't wait until Sherley comes back. -.- I hope she's okay right now. I mean, neck surgery is a serious thing, whether it be on animate or inanimate objects. My AMVs are going to take a long time to make now. -3- Well, whatever happens, I'll let you guys know as soon as possible. Until then, I have a video to work on. Enjoy the rest of your day and I will see you guys next time! This is BlackStar, logging off!

<![CDATA[where has the crew gone?!]]>Wed, 25 Mar 2015 23:00:09 GMThttp://blackstarrules.weebly.com/blogs-from-mar-9th-to-now/where-has-the-crew-gonePicture
What is up people?! BlackStar here and welcome back to CSK Studios! Okay, okay. I know that I have some explaining to do. You guys are probably wondering where I've been. I'm not gonna lie to you, I've been PRETTY BUSY. I thought that it would be a good idea to hire some more people for the website! I know, it's awesome! In the past week and a half or so, I've been wandering around on both DeviantArt (as BlackStarRules1), Wattpad (as Rival_Writer) and a lot of other websites because I have been taking the Studios out to the Internet! I'm in the process of writing two stories, I have videos coming out on my YouTube channel, and a lot of other things happening! But...I thought that the Studios was a bit...small, you know? I mean, it's only me, Axum, Gatsby, and Canti running the show now and it gets a bit stressful at times. So, I thought that it would be a great idea to have other people help me out! I'm having some people join and we're gonna make almost all of the accounts joined together! I'm making a DeviantArt account for the Studios, changing my name to CSK_Studios on Wattpad, and i'm making a second Youtube Channel so that we can all have fun and upload there! I'll be taking fan videos as well! Anyway, I better get back to work, so I will see you guys next time! This is BlackStar, logging off!

<![CDATA[how the drill spins! tengen toppa gurren laggan anime review part 2!]]>Fri, 13 Mar 2015 21:34:54 GMThttp://blackstarrules.weebly.com/blogs-from-mar-9th-to-now/how-the-drill-spins-tengen-toppa-gurren-laggan-anime-review-part-2 Picture
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN! BOYS AND GIRLS! CHAPS AND CHAPPETTES ALIKE! WELCOME! TO THIS WEEK'S ANIME REVIEW!


What is up people?! BlackStar here, along with Axum Haslyn and Gatsby Haslyn, and WELCOME to the second half of our anime review for Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann! This week, on this glorious Saturday morning, my team and I will be telling you about the second half of the show and the true ending that it much needlessly deserves!
We know, we know, you guys have been wanting this for a while. We had to actually finish the anime before we could do a review on it. I know. FOR THE FIRST TIME, WE DIDN'T FINISH THE SHOW!
But everyone here today is in for a jolly good time. As Axum and I said last time, we will be doing a full evaluation at the end of this review, filled with our own personal opinions and such and a final grade at the end. We will explain the plot and put as little spoilers as possible. So, without further a do, allow us to get started.

Picture
It has been 7 years since the fall of Lordgenome The Spiral King. The Beastmen War has ended and the humans have made their way to the surface above. The battle ground of the final battle has been transformed into what is now known as Kamina City, named after the great warrior himself. The city has advance tremendously since the humans have moved up, creating more Gunman that are used to defend the greater good of mankind.

Picture
Our once fragile and timid Simon has matured into the new Supreme Commander of the new world, keeping it safe from harm. His comrades have taken control of various positions of the newly made government and everyone lives in peace. A burning love between Simon and Nia has fully blossomed as they plan to become married in a matter of months!

But this happiness is short lived when the warning left behind by Lordgenome takes light. The population of the surface has reach a total number of one million humans. Out of nowhere, these mechanical monsters appear, attacking the city! The new Gunman have no effect on them, but Simon's Gurren Lagann get's the job done, destroying them in one blow!
Picture
But this victory is short lived once more when the city is informed that an ancient and powerful race has sent the moon to crash into the planet in a matter of three weeks! Now it's a race against time as Simon must bring the old team back together and stop these new villains! But will they make it in time? Or will the Earth be destroyed once and for all?

And that concludes our overview of the plot. This is literally as much we can reveal without spoiling the show.
NOW LET'S GO ONTO THE EVALUATION!

THE EVALUATION THAT WILL PIERCE THE Heavens!


THE STORYLINE

Now, many people think that Gurren Lagann is just a classic "underdog story", and it is, but it's a different kind of underdog story. It shows determination, courage, strengthening of the soul , and having the nerve to kick out logic and do the impossible!
This anime has the type of storyline where you know what's going to happen next and you just can't WAIT for it to happen.

OVERALL GRADE: A+ - 10/10


the characters

Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann provides a wide variety of surprisingly relatable characters. You have Simon, the shy boy who changes to become a hero when the time is right. You have Kamina, the older and more "manly" role modle, and you have Yoko, the serious girl who keeps everyone in place, as well as become the driving force behind everyone. Every character reminds us of ourselves one way or another.

OVERall grade: a - 9/10


the animation

The ass kicking animation of Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann is badass as the storyline. As we all know, Gurren Lagann was made by the ANime studio GAINAX, which are the people who also made Kill La Kill, Fooly Cooly, and Panty and Stocking With Garterbelt, so it's no surprise that GAINAX would spend a GIGANTIC amount of time on the animation to make sure that their shit is on point!

overall grade: A - 9/10


The soundtrack

Despite everything else that is PERFECT about the anime, I have to say that my favorite thing  was the soundtrack! :D
I can't argue with that brother. Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann has multiple ending themes and only one opening theme, which is known as Sorairo Days by Shoko Nakagawa.
The best ending theme by far is Love, Peace & Rock. Now that is a song that I want to play at my funeral!

overall grade: a+ - 10/10


personal enjoyment and final grade

Picture
Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann was an outstanding anime. It did everything RIGHT and everything was amazing from beginning to end.
It was phenomenal, unlike almost anything I've ever seen before the beginning will start you off with joy and the ending will leave you in nothing but tears because you will be heartbroken when it's over.
Seriously, JUST WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK WE ARE? Why wouldn't we give this anime a good grade?
Therefore, after coming up with the final grade, letting it live underground for 14 years, find a giant robot head and kicking some SERIOUS bottay, we the people of C.S.K. Studios hereby give Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann a score of...

96/100 - a+ for fucking awesome!

Well, that's all the time we have for this week guys! Thanks for joining in on this anime review!
If you are interested in the anime, we will be providing a link to the dubbed version of the anime, the subbed version of the anime, and the manga at the end of this anime review.
And as always, STAY AWESOME!

NEXT time!

Four girls. One school. And a whole LOT OF MONSTERS! Join us next time for a review on the anime that is great in itself! 

RWBY: The anime review!

<![CDATA[springtrap is still alive! NO!!!]]>Wed, 11 Mar 2015 21:16:31 GMThttp://blackstarrules.weebly.com/blogs-from-mar-9th-to-now/springtrap-is-still-alive-noPicture
Hello everyone! Lord Canti here, bringing you this week's stupendous Game Theory! Upon the release of the highly anticipated Five Nights At Freddy's 3, many theories have been around the main story of the game and the plot itself. Well, I'm here today to help you determine what actually happened in the ending of the game, having to do with the newspaper clipping to the left of these words. This is gonna be a small theory, but a good one! I want you to take a good look at the small Freddy Fazbear figurine. Do you see anything out of the ordinary? Take a closer look. Okay, now look at this.

Oh. Look. Springtrap is in the background. I guess that means that survived the fire. :) Just great.....Give me a second. *Ahem*
Picture
I KNOW YOU THINKING THE SAME THING TOO! SPRINGTRAP IS STILL ALIVE! HE'S ALIVE! WHICH MEANS THAT HE'S STILL OUT THERE AND HE'S STILL ROAMING THE WORLD, LOOKING FOR HIS NEXT VICTIM! THIS IS BAD THIS IS BAD THIS IS- Okay. Deep breath Canti, you need to calm down. Okay! :D Based on this photo, I can propose this theory. There may or may not be a FNAF 4 in the works, but that doesn't mean that Springtrap won't be back. Scott Cawthon, the creator of the game, uploaded this image about a week ago, showing Freddy Fazbear's hat on the stage with a single spotlight on it. This usually is the sign that the show is over, but that doesn't mean that a new one isn't gonna begin! And if you brighten up the photo a bit, you'll see what looks like the number 4 above the brim of the hat. What if Springtrap will be back? I mean, he might. We'll never know. But hey, that's just my theory. Propose your own and I'll see you guys next time, okay?
