Hell yeah, Futurama! Can't wait to see that "anime" segment, LMFAO.

So excited for the new episodes tonight! Very Happy

Wow, Reincarnation is the last episode of the current season. It'll be a while before we get there. Anyway, can't wait for more new episodes.

Smile I read about this about an hour ago and I almost sent a tip in to the interest feed. I'm glad somebody found it.

Futurama is awesome...

Looks like kind of a shallow parody.

Yes, I agree with the ones who think that this parody will be lame. It'll be the kind that only appears funny for people who're not into anime. For the ones who are familiar with the tropes, it will just seem clumsy and amateurish.

On the other hand I'm glad that Futurama gets more episodes. The last season had some impressively high quality episodes (The Late Philip J Fry), which shows that it hasn't run out of steam just yet.

Aren't they all?

Stuff like this is always either anime = Speed Racer or anime = Pokemon.

I prefer the anime = La Blue Girl parody route.
