  1. Hunter X Hunter

    Grandpa defeats King Ant with a deus ex podex. All of a sudden he has a mini-nuke installed that we were never given any hints about. I call bullshit.
  2. Megalo Box

    The butterfly during the teaser was a bit heavy-handed. Butterflies are a death symbol. I get the feeling that I'm supposed to feel sorry for NotMelGibson, but I don't. Boy this show really wants to be the sports version of Bebop. It even has three old guys for Spike Joe to jog past. Well, here's a list of sports and game anime to help you decide. Offhand, I'd say Basquash! sounds like it could be interesting. I haven't really watched any sports stuff other than IGPX, unless you count Chihayafuru.
  3. JoJo's Bizarre Adventure

    "Something weird is happenin' in my pants!" Yeah dude, you're at that age. Reminds me of Hank Venture (or was it Dean) running in circles and yelling "Teepee in my pants!" They entered general use (for non-nobles) around the 1870s.
  4. JoJo's Bizarre Adventure

    "Oh my god! My Hermit Purple is tingling!"
  5. Boruto: Naruto Next Generations

    I wave my magic doohickey and make it so.
  6. Toonami: Anime for Insomniacs

    New Megalo Box topic. New Boruto topic.
  7. Megalo Box

    Topic for the anime show about futuristic boxing with mechanically enhanced fighters. ------------------------------------------------------ Joe Boxer, aka "Gearless Joe", has his first fight under the new identity, and gets a nasty panic attack during the bout. Naturally it's the street urchin who joined the team last week who says the things that bring Joe back and let him win the match. Montage of his winning the next two fights as well. Gansaku sets up the fourth fight with a fighter who turns out to be someone he has a history with. The new fighter appears at the end and...holy crap, it's young Mel Gibson! Well, maybe not, but just look at him. Anyway, he says he's going to destroy Gansaku's new fighter Joe.
  8. Boruto: Naruto Next Generations

    The next generation sequel to Naruto and Naruto Shippuden. Please spoiler tag anything that hasn't aired in the U.S. ----------------------------------------------------------------- Latest episode: The class rep. turns out to be the mysterious bad guy! She unleashes a snake/tiger/ape monster that's going to suck all the chakra, and then detonate, destroying the village. Naturally Boruto wants to stop her without killing her.
  9. JoJo's Bizarre Adventure

    Don't get me started. I still have a pad of Mr Bill notepaper around here somewhere. Jotaro & Okuyasu meet a young kid with a spiky head who has the Stand version of the old "rounding error" bank fraud computer program. Getting rich one penny at a time. Naturally he turns into a jerkass the moment any real money is involved. Damn, those little Harvest collectors run fast! Japan culture note: Jotaro mentioned that Okuyasu should be able to collect on his lottery ticket as long as he has his ID and his name stamp. In Japan those stamps (hanko or inkan) are registered with the government, and are used instead of signatures on legal documents. People usually pay a professional to design theirs, similar to the way we might pay someone to make up some business cards.
  10. Naruto: Shippuden

    I wonder what the largest item is that Tenten can store on a scroll. I also wonder if she can store living things. ETA: New Boruto topic here.
  11. Reminds me of the old Dilbert strip where his miniature weather-system experiment didn't work out. Very "anti-climatic." I just saw a segment on the local news where the county Sheriff informed me that "These additional beds being added to the county jail means that the jail will have more beds." I'm worried that I may have a hand-shaped bruise on my face now. I should learn to facepalm less vigorously.
  12. Pet(s): Photos & Discussion

    Been a few months since I posted about the two new felines. They've both settled in fairly well now, although Calypso is still a bit nervous about sudden noises. Probably related to the injuries she got as a stray. Catsby now prefers to spend evenings on my bed snuggled up against my legs. He's mostly an indoor kitty. Calypso has staked out a number of nests for herself (on the washing machine, on the bathroom counter, behind the door in Mom's room, in front of the wood stove, etc) which she uses as the mood strikes her. She's more of an outdoor kitty. I've been giving them both dry food and canned food, but I've managed to convince them that the canned food is a special treat that they only get when I call them. In other words, I've trained them to come when I call. Rather handy that. Both cats have determined that the best time to approach me for petting is when I'm sitting down, usually when I'm trying to use the computer. I'm currently trying to type around Catsby, who's reclining on the wrist pad in front of the keyboard with his nose stuck into my armpit. Been raining a lot this week, and neither of the furry twits has enough sense to just stay indoors. They want back in almost immediately after going out, probably because the rain makes lots of noise on the metal awning over the deck. Catsby getting full use of the ratty old recliner in the living room: Calypso preventing me from making the bed:
  13. "If I Hear That Song One More Time..."

    Pick a "classic rock" radio station, then listen to it for an hour or two. I guarantee that they'll play Robert Palmer's "Addicted to Love" during that time. There's no escaping it!
  14. My Hero Academia

    He might be dressed as one of the Ainu people. The clothing is somewhat similar. I think it's a reference to the fact that he touches things to use his powers. Basically just a costume. I was hoping it would be something more interesting. Maybe it'll turn out to have some sort of functionality.
  15. Covers: The Good, The Bad, The Meh

    One of my favorite covers; "Purple Haze" in a Devo-esque mode, with vocals that sound like Kingfish from Amos & Andy, as preformed live by Frank Zappa's band: Talk about taking a song and making it your own.
