    Toonami: Anime for Insomniacs

    New lineup kicks off tonight. Also, it turns out My Hero Academia got pushed to the back because Toonami ran through all three seasons. From Bleeding Cool: Writer offers her dream Toonami lineup. It includes a few anime that have never been in that block.

    I’m trying to remember the comparisons made in the SNY booth in regard to the white unis . . . Spy vs. Spy Oompa Loompas (in the sterilized room, after Mike Teevee fucked up) Droogies (A Clockwork Orange) Crap, that’s all I got.

    Just caught the Braves and Mets going into extras. Forgot this was Players’ Weekend. Do the uniforms have to be all white? It looks weird. Question: does the coaching staffs get custom names on their jerseys as well? I’m thinking Mickey Callaway would opt for “I’M SO FINE,” given how his team has been doing lately.

    It probably tastes decent, and there's protein. The main obstacle is getting over the hurdle about eating insects, which (wuss that I am) I probably couldn't do. Honestly . . . there are two plates in front of you. One with toasted grasshoppers, one with Rocky Mountain Oysters. Which one would you eat if you had no option to leave the table?

    I got an notice from the Mets about MLB Foodfest in New York next month. Here's the menu . . .there isn't a lot of options for me due to allergies and personal tastes, but it still looks appealing. ETA: Has anyone here ever had toasted grasshoppers? Dang, Seattle, you weird.

    gen:Lock thread has been established.

    gen:Lock

    From Wikipedia: Basically, it's kids uploading their minds into giant war machines, as opposed to piloting them. And Michael B. Jordan is the lead guy . . . a soldier who was blown to shit two years prior, and now exists as a hologram while his effed-up body floats in a tank. If you really need a selling point: the quirky scientist behind the "gen:Lock" process is voiced by David Tennant, and he speaks in a Scottish accent. I know that does something for a lot of you reading this. And he plays "quirky scientist" as well as "demon," "time-traveling alien" and "old, rich-as-hell duck." Anyway, the first season of gen:Lock is currently airing on Toonami, and it's pretty good.

    Food Wars! (Shokugeki no Soma)

    Latest episode in eight words: "I got a funny feeling in my underwear." Goodness, the fan service was off the charts, what with all of the meat and foodgasms. Naturally, Soma defeats Meat-Meat to save the Rice Bowl Club (or whatever) . . . but he doesn't wind up joining them. Meanwhile, Ms. God Tongue scowls in her private box, still offended (like most of the students outside of the Polaris dorm) by Soma's presence.
  10. Worse, while I'm okay with most of the newer characters (Gary needs to be toned down, if not outright murdered), I don't think they could carry the weight of the remaining original characters. If LoT were to end and replaced with a solo series on Sara, I'd be open for it. I dunno . . . get her to tour the Arrowverse, one city at a time. I'm good with Nate, but I think he's at his best when he's with Ray and they try to outdork each other. They are to LoT what Blue Beetle and Booster Gold were to the relaunched Justice League in the Eighties. Separately, they're tolerable; together, the chaos multiplies exponentially.

    Great jab at the Marlins from The Onion.

    S04.E04: Search and Rescue

    Ah. I thought it was instantaneous. Also: I thought that the other side of the U.S. would be China. Is that a myth?

    S04.E04: Search and Rescue

    In my eyes? "Anytime Jesse tries to help someone this season, they done get killed." Feuding guys? Both dead, and their camels to boot. Child that's in a house of omega pervs? Shot and killed by a stray bullet. Pilot who would probably not help Jesse if not for The Voice? Legs burnt to a crisp, hand bitten off by a shark while not knowing it happened, dead. I'm not getting Actual Jesus being here. If he's here, then why Humperdoo? He meets Tulip, and I wait for the pissing that doesn't come. Well put. 😜 Reasons! Or maybe writing inconsistencies. That was funny and awesome. And then Eugene comes out of the hole, all, "Okay, fine, let's go with this." Is it odd that it was daytime on both sides of the world?

    Naruto: Shippuden

    Yeah . . . but Gaara. I mean, the Kazikage is more chill than when we were introduced to him at the Chunin Exams, but Kabuto almost crushing a guy didn’t come close to anything Gaara did back then.
