Hunter × Hunter: Phantom Rouge

What is it?

The 2013 Japanese anime (animated) movie Hunter × Hunter: Phantom Rouge.

What is it about?

This is how the IMDb describes this anime (animated) movie:

Kurapika became a Hunter to take vengeance on the Class-A crime group Phantom Troupe who massacred his clan for their unique eyes.

The eyes of the Kurta clan turn scarlet in times of anger or emotional agitation and are considered the most beautiful treasures in the world.

Kurapika continues to pursue the Phantom Troupe but an unknown party has stolen his “scarlet eyes”.

With the help of Gon, Killua and Leorio, Kurapika’ s life was saved.

However, the Phantom Troupe shows up before them and blocks their way.

The true identity of the one with the No.4 spider tattoo is about to be unveiled.


My Thoughts

This movie had a good start with better animation, a more serious start, et cetera but unfortunately it became what felt more like a longer average episode of Hunter x Hunter.

Hunter x Hunter deserves a better movie than this, it was not bad though, but it was just average and it did not cover or better explain things that I wanted to see covered and explained.

This movie had none of the great moments like in the show, and so some episodes were better than this movie.

A Detective Puppet’s Booby Trap?

The Happytime Murders (2018)

I remembered several dreams and even thought about how to record them, but I went back to sleep without recording them so now I can only remember part of the end of my last dream.

This dream was possibly inspired by the trailer for The Happytime Murders movie.

All that I can remember of the end of this dream is that I was inside a dimly lit building / house-like place that was probably one-story with various hallways and rooms and a garage.

In this dream there were humans and puppets who could walk and talk et cetera like they were alive or something, and a short male detective-like puppet wearing a trench coat and fedora was probably trying to stop a human and puppet gang / group led by a human woman with dark-color skin with black hair who somewhat reminded me of my former female dentist Dr. VB.

Maybe the detective-like puppet was investigating them, maybe they murdered some of his friends but I am not sure, and I guess they found out that he was inside their building / house so the leader told her group / gang to kill him.

The detective-like puppet sneaked around the building avoiding them and possibly escaped but I am not sure, I just remember walking down a hallway when the leader and a male puppet and a male human walked down the same hallway but they ignored me and I was not with them, and they found clues that the detective-like puppet had intentionally left it seemed.

It seemed to be a message and a booby trap so I stayed back and the male puppet and the man cautiously looked around for traps et cetera, but the leader walked forward to examine the clues that were outside the door to the garage past the opening to a hallway on the left side that had a bathroom on the right side at the entrance of that hallway.

The leader seemed to really want the detective-like puppet killed, she did not seem to like that he was challenging her authority / property and evading them and maybe she was afraid that he would gather enough evidence to bring her and her human and puppet gang / group to justice, and the message / assumed booby trap seemed to be designed in a way that would attract the leader and make her overconfident that she could avoid triggering the trap.

I remember telling the male puppet and male human that it was not a good idea for the leader or anyone to be messing around the assumed booby trap and they agreed, and so we told the leader this several times but she was confident that she would figure out the booby trap so that she could avoid triggering it and so that she could disable it.

The leader walked completely through the assumed booby trap / message, nothing happened, and so the leader became even more overconfident after telling us that she told us so and she continued examining the assumed booby trap / message as we stood back.

I had nothing to do with this and wanted nothing to do with this so I walked past the leader and into the garage to try to find a way out the building before she triggers the trap, inside the garage was an automobile and various tools on the shelves et cetera, and I heard the leader and the others talking and them once again recommending that she leave the booby trap alone but she would not listen.

Before I could find a way out I heard a sound like she had triggered the trap, I heard the male puppet and the male human say that they should take cover in a room nearby, and I took cover behind the automobile.

I think that I heard the leader say that nothing happened and that maybe there was not a booby trap at all or maybe there was another booby trap somewhere, and she probably make fun of the others for taking cover.

Then I heard and felt a loud and deep and powerful explosion that sounded like it should have destroyed the walls and possibly killed me too, but to my surprise it did not.

I assumed that the leader was dead and that maybe the others had survived, but I woke up before I could check.

Ghost In The Shell And My Brothers KD And TD’s Automobile Search

I had several dreams last night that I remembered but I got awakened from my first dream by my brothers KD and TD talking loudly on the phone with our dad about their search for a new automobile, this disturbed my sleep and dreams causing me to quickly forget my dream or dreams, and eventually I went back to sleep.

I had one or more dreams but when I woke up to organize them in my mind I forgot the first dream or most of the dream while trying to remember part of an earlier dream, and so now I can only barely remember part of an earlier dream from last night.

The dream was inspired by my brothers KD and TD talking in the real world on the phone with our dad and the Ghost In The Shell films, the last few days I watched all the Ghost In The Shell films (Ghost In The ShellGhost In The Shell 2: InnocenceGhost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex – Solid State Society, and Ghost In The Shell: The New Movie), and last night I watched Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex – Solid State Society.

All that I can remember of the dream is that some of the dream involved Ghost In The Shell related things and some of the dream involved my brothers KD and TD complaining about their search for a new automobile, like they were in the real world, and I remember being inside a building or house looking out the window at a parking lot and/or parking garage with several strange futuristic vehicles like something from a Ghost In The Shell film or television series.

One looked like it could hold more than one person and it somewhat reminded me of a Tachikoma, I wondered why my brothers KD and TD were not considering using it, and I remember trying to see if I could control it remotely like a puppet.

I stayed where I was inside the building but somehow I projected my consciousness or ghost from my body to the vehicle (I am not sure if I used a machine or if I just used my mind), I was able to control the vehicle this way, I knew that my body was still in the building and I could probably sense how far away from it I was so it was almost like being in two places at once because there was somewhat of a connection with my body.

I was not sure how far away I could move away from my body or for how long so to avoid any risks I drove the vehicle close to the building and not for very long, and eventually I returned my consciousness or ghost to my body.

I was not sure if that vehicle was street legal or not because it seemed to be more military-like than civilian, I thought about various things and did various things that I can not remember, and I tried controlling that vehicle remotely several times but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

I barely remember part of my last dream from last night, which was a strange & confusing combination of things, and it took place at my grandfather’s house, a fictional area, and my parent’s yard.

I remember being inside of my grandfather’s house with several people and connected to or next to my grandfather’s house was a fictional area that was either connected to the house directly or we saw in on an electronic device of some kind, this area had a pool and next to that was a tall building with a lot of windows, like a building in a big city.

Several things happened in my grandfather’s house that I can not remember, but at some point I remember seeing parts of a show that was a combination of RecklessTortuga from YouTube (some of the cast and some of their style of comedy) mixed with a reality TV show mixed with something else; and I think that the dream between things happening in my grandfather’s house and things happening on that show, so this dream is very confusing.

At some point maybe the cast of the show were at the fictional area that might have been connected to my grandfather’s house, and they did a skit where they jumped around doing crazy stuff where they were partly injured after each stunt; and after that maybe the cast of the show came to talk with the other people and I in my grandfather’s house.

I wish that I could remember what happened in my grandfather’s house during most of the dream, because I think that it is important, but I can not remember; and I just remember leaving my grandfather’s house and I remember finding/coming across a naked woman who looked like the Ashlyn Rae, but I can not remember how I met her or why she was naked or anything else exactly.

I just remember sneaking her into my parent’s yard, it was dark or gray outside, and we went into one of the storage buildings in my parent’s yard; to avoid her being seen naked, to maybe try to find her some clothes, for some privacy, for her safety, and maybe a few other reasons.

The naked woman acted puppet-like/robot-like/zombie-like/et cetera, sometimes in some of my lucid dreams & some of my regular dreams, certain dream characters seem to almost have no personality of their own, like they are part of me & like I can control them & they do whatever I say; so I literally have to tell them what to do or ask them questions for them to talk or for them to do almost anything.

This part of the dream seemed almost semi-lucid and I was partly hoping to have some private time with the woman, sexual opportunities in my dreams are rare and almost always get interrupted and/or stopped and/or censored, and so at this point I was trying to avoid any other dream characters seeing us.

I remember looking through the windows in the building to make sure that no one was around and I remember starting to talk to the woman, I probably had to ask questions to get her to talk, and I was trying to get to know her a bit & I was trying to understand her situation; and I had noticed her puppet-like/robot-like/zombie-like behavior where I had to literally give her commands for her to follow me & for her to go in the storage building & I had to literally help her a bit to walk up the step to the storage building & I had to ask her to stay away from the windows & to wait in a certain spot & she would do everything that I asked/said & her only form of communication was probably short simple responses to my questions or commands.

I felt a bit weird like any possible sexual contact with the woman would be like taking advantage of her or almost like having sex with a mostly lifeless robot or something (because she would do anything that I asked probably & she seemed to lack her own personality), and so I started to talk/ask the woman questions to better understand her & her situation instead; but then the usual interruption happened and some of my family & some other people came into the storage building to hang out or something.

I found a blanket or something for the naked woman to cover herself with and I asked her to wait in a comfortable corner area in the storage building, and I stopped to see what some of my family & the other people wanted; and as usual there was no real or clear reason for their interruption, other than to interruption/stop any possible sexual or intimate contact that I am having or might have as usual in dreams, then I woke up.

The end,
