Hardly any sexual content (absolutely no fan service) great characters, great animation, great ending, great themes, great everything.

Its literally one of the best shows ever made. Please go.home and watch it if you haven't

Tatami Galaxy is better.

Ping Pong is great

Oh thank god. It was a bad enough line was it was, but they didn't think about the fact it would be dated in a few years.

Any word on what replaced the line?

Ain't a Japanese thing. I laugh at their stuff sometimes. Just anime.

Cromartie high school was close tho.

"Have you got a stick up your ass, or is that you pathetic attempt at talking to an older girl?"

And I'm with you, my issue with the line was just how out of the place it was. It'd be like inserting a Harambe joke.

That line works so much in context of the scene, I don't know why they didn't think of that first.

I don't mind references in my dub, but I wish more script writers would think "is this something that could stand the test of the time &/or most of the audience would actually get?" Highschool of the Dead has a few awful internet meme references, like having someone just spout out "i like turtles". Granted, it's by the same dude who dubbed Ghost Stories, which went the Shin Chan route of "let's just make up a brand new script & make the humor mature"

eh... it only has great animation at times. a lot of times it is quite obvious they didn't have a big budget and saved that budget for key scenes.

also... not great art... it's hideous (but it grows on you :P)

it was a good show, but for me, far from the best made anime of the 2000s.

I think if you put memes into something you either 1) go all in knowing that it'll be dated within years or 2) make sure they're funny even out of context.

Oh yeah, another important factor is "does this line/joke make sense/still work if someone doesn't know what the reference is?", which is why the original line was bad.

Exactly. & ensure it would actually fit the character/context.

.....I feel like I contribute more in more "knowledgeable" discussions for the most random things, like executing humor in comparison to what we usually talk about like character arcs & such.

Man.... I was looking for an interesting way to rick roll this statement for the fun of it... (how often is a rick roll a relevant post lol)

but then when i came across the answer...

I couldn't do it because i need to make sure that people know that the video at the middle is not safe for work.

A good example is Jaco going "Are you slogan-shaming me?!" which is a pretty funny thing to say either way, just from phrasing and the show's context.

You will be surprised how often I still find Harambe mentioned on dating profiles.

  • A Devil May Cry anime is a good idea. It's just the one that exists is bad

You get used to it. The subway's been a shitshow the last few months though, so it's been annoying. You should have hit me up, we could have grab lunch or something.

One of these days, maybe it'll finally get the rerun slot. I recall S2 was much better overall than S1, & I'd like to rewatch it to confirm if that's true.

Also, bummer, I go to GS an hour early to ensure I can be one of the first to get Crash & get the keychain which my best friend really wants, but turns out you had to pre-order before the 10th, which both of us didn't do. Ah well, least I can play an hour or two before work...

Driving in Manhattan is suicide. It's for rageaholics. And yea, we're not all as rude as everyone makes us out to be. So long as you figure out and follow the basic etiquette of the sidewalks no one will really care.

So I've started watching Level-E, kind of the forgotten series that Togashi made in between Yu Yu Hakusho and Hunter x Hunter. Best way I can describe it is the protagonist screws with people for the lawls.

I'm watching the dub on Funimation and Vic Mignogna got cast as Prince Baka, which almost feels like eerily perfect casting since the character almost sees like an exaggerated version of himself.

it's still less stupid than what they call a deep dish pizza in parts of chicago.

the cheese goes on top, not the bottom.

it doesn't go cheese and toppings and then sauce on top.
