    Boruto: Naruto Next Generations

    Kakashi: "Boruto, you're a spoiled brat who's never had to work to succeed. Everything has either come easily to you, or been handed to you. You've never struggled or been defeated, or lost anyone close to you. And yet, for some reason I keep saying how much like your father you are, even though he had to go through all of that crap I just mentioned. Despite that, I'm not buying into your Mary Sue portrayal on this show. Now come over here and get your ass beaten."

    Anime & Toons: What Are You Watching?

    The bad dub may be magnifying the other flaws. Also, I forgot to mention that the translation could have been handled better. My favorite line in the two episodes was a pilot trying unsuccessfully to fly his ship higher and yelling in frustration "I can't get it up!"

    Naruto: Shippuden

    This episode of Naruto is sponsored by Armadillo Willy's! But seriously, I did not need to see that, and neither did Naruto, judging by his expression. Kabuto and Deidara manage to flip the island-turtle over on its back and capture Yamato. Not a bad consolation prize, since they didn't get a tailed beast.

    Toonami: Anime for Insomniacs

    A new UC Gundam series going back to the beginning that's completely faithful to the look of the original? I'm in.
  5. Speaking of words that look wrong, "souvenirs" tops my list.

    Anime & Toons: What Are You Watching?

    Today I checked out a new-ish thrift shop in town, and stumbled across a VHS tape with two episodes of Super Dimension Century Orguss. I remember it as being one of the worst anime I've ever seen (I only saw about three episodes), so I had to get it. It set me back an entire dollar! The tape is in nearly perfect condition; clear video with nary a dropout to be found. Everything else about it sucks as much as I remember. It's hilarious. The animation quality isn't so hot even for the time period when it was released, with "action" scenes largely consisting of people or mecha standing stock still while the background moves past. The plot is silly. The dialog stinks. But the real selling point for it is the abysmal, rancid, awful, no-good English dub. If you remember the episode of Aqua Teen Hunger Force where the hypno-germs put on a play, the acting is that bad. Even when it's Steve Blum. A show worthy of MST3K.

    Naruto: Shippuden

    Yeah, anything involving the ostrich is filler.

    Better yet, maybe he's the shape-changing leader of the demons.

    I'm thinking more along the lines of breeding stock.

    Here's a picture of the two little monsters dining. It's the only time that they bunch up and stop moving long enough to get both in one shot:

    The Promised Neverland

    Norman puts on his best stiff upper lip and marches off to become a demon delicacy, but we haven't seen a corpse like we did with Conny and Krone. I suspect he's not dead yet.

    Naruto: Shippuden

    Again with the damn ostrich. A giant armadillo falls in love with Naruto at first sight. Because he's just that amazing. He'd better be careful - armadillos sometimes carry leprosy. Also Naruto and Bee take turns tormenting Guy. Kabuto resurrects Deidara so he can do some goodwill building with Madara. En route to Naruto's last reported location, they tangle with the Tsuchikage. It looked like the old guy got killed by an excessively "artistic" explosion, but I doubt it was that easy, especially since his two bodyguards didn't join in the fight. And Madara has an army of clones.

    Black Clover

    The new guy with the trap powers doesn't seem to grasp the concept of teamwork. Asta seemed a little louder than usual this time.

    My Hero Academia

    It's just too easy to do dirty jokes about this episode. The guy who's conducting the exam needs to find another job. He could at least pretend to care.

    Maybe. We'll see if I can catch them and get them to the animal shelter. In the meantime they're awfully cute, and it's hilarious watching my cats trying to process these tiny grey thunderbolts.
