Drink #034: Monster Mash,
A Warning to Those Who Fight Monsters
All Hallows’ Eve is when the most dreaded monsters stalk the Earth as the veil between this world and the next is thinned by the autumnal equinox (and we’re not talking about girls in trollopy versions of traditional costumes). In honor of this, we are looking at the monsters, ghouls, ghosts, goblins, demons, and yokai of shonen fighting. It is one thing to fight a guy with a magic sword but it is a completely other thing to fight an eldritch abomination. So get your best shinigami scythe, your priest’s robe, and delve into the world of darkness. Bustin’ makes me feel good.
And now your helpful bartenders at The Speakeasy present your drink:
- 1 oz. Rum, gold
- 1 oz. Schnapps, lemon
- 2 oz. Vodka
- 1 can Energy Drink (Monster)
Mix everything in a large beer glass and enjoy!

I feel that the main advantage of the Kick-Heart project is that it would become a channel for which other projects similar to it to be funded through the Kickstarter platform. The best consequence of Kick-Heart for the anime industry I believe would be the increase in diversity ie more shorts made by directors like Yuasa who often don’t make commercially viable projects.
Also Production IG naturally covers all the costs for international shipping which is a nice change.
I feel like a lot of really nasty monsters were the ones in 70s or 80s OVAs. I did think of a monster from Berserk, but I did not get to the part with the fetus (so I was spoiled on that). Berserk is full of very disgusting monsters, but the monster I did like in that series is Zodd Nosferatu. Why?
First off, his name alone makes him badass, but I love that Guts and crew just roll up on a castle one day and the soldiers meet this fucking giant crazy demon! WTF? Then Guts and Griffith figure “hey, let’s take him down” Just crazy. I just like him because I think I could read a series just dedicated to Zodd. Watch him punch demons in the face!
