12 Days of the Teekyu Revolution – Day 12 with Sempai

December 13, 2013

1This year’s Revenge of the 12 Days Extravaganza is all about the Teekyus. 12 days dedicated to the Teekyu Revolution, wherein I will prove to the unclean masses that this thing is pretty much the perfect distillation of modern anime.

To start things off, let’s get some objective proof out-of-the-way. Ya’ll like those hard, provable, quantifiable facts– those undeniable facts that can never be debated and doubted. It’s one thing to make an argument, and it’s another thing to slap doubters in the face with the truth.

Only two piece of anime have won an Oscar: Miyazaki’s Spirited Away and Teekyu.

Yeah man, episode two of season two of Teekyu shows us that the anime won an Oscar. So, if Miyazaki is supposedly the pinnacle of anime’s artistry, and he’s won one Oscar, then by the standards of film criticism Teekyu has to be equivalent to Miyazaki’s works.

But then you have to look at the size of the Oscar award. Miyazaki’s was just a normal Oscar statue– the same sort of thing the costume designers and sound editors win. Teekyu’s Oscar? Look at that motherfucker. It must be the equivalent of every Oscar given away at any one Academy Awards ceremony.

That’s objective proof that Teekyu is superior to the works of Studio Ghibli, and if Ghibli used to be the pinnacle of anime standards, the sheer size of its Oscar must make Teekyku’s importance that much more significant.

Basically, yeah, Teekyu has proven itself to be the most critically rated anime of all time. There’s no questioning this simple truth.

      Unless they’re slapped in front of Disney or Pixar’s latest movie, those animated shorts may as well not exist. Even the likes of Teekyu and other anime have distribution through Crunchyroll. Most nominees for Best Animated Short never get seen beyond the handful of people who vote.

      Also, Teekyu’s Oscar is STILL bigger and therefore better.
