I swear Naruto episode 55 aired yesterday on YTV...Either way, a friend of mine waited out the rain for a PS3, that new Gundam Game, an Extra controller, and some other stuff. Me? I plan on getting a PS3, just next year, cause #1 I don't buy consoles on launch, it's in my rule book, #2 Blew the cash already...

Another chance for people on the internet to pretend they're mocking a "sacred cow" by using the term "Narutard" when in actuality there are cows far more sacred that aren't animated TV shows aimed at an audience of older children to college-aged adults!

Well to be true it's used in my book to describe someone so infatuated with Naruto that they can't see the anything wrong with it. Like a lemming jumping off a cliff.

Episode 20 of "Oban: Star Racers" was amazing. I've enjoyed this series since the beginning, but even this ep went so much deeper & darker than I ever imagined it would. It really deserves more exposer than what it's getting.

Am I reading this right? Yugi fights against the "spirit of Alexander the Great"? The face adorning much of my favorite flavor of Otter Pops? Man that's awesome!


Yup, Yugi's fighting against Alexander the Great. Razz & to make it even cooler, according to the series he was wearing the Millennium Ring during his world conquering days.

(Cartoon Network)
Saturday November 18 5:00am - Episode 2 "Twilight Brigade"

This week on Cartoon Network's "Why Bother? No One's Awake/Sober Enough To Watch Whatever We Put Here Anyway" designated timeslot, .hack//Roots continues with its sophomore episode. Tabby, a discomfortingly buxom feline player, joins a Guild and informs her other MMORPG-ing friends.


So, you think Tabby's breasts are way too large? Taking a look at the official website, she doesn't seem that big to me.

I'm always fascinated how Abel Nightroad's vampire transformation requires him to audibly pronounce some kind of math equation. "POWERS -AT- EIGHTY PERCENT!"


Why IS it that vampires...or at least Abel & Alucard say things like that before they transform? Did I miss something somewhere about that being a vampire rule?

Surprised Oh, wow, an Otter Pops reference? You truly are a dangerous person of wits for having that one in your arsenal. Laughing I was more a fan of...Poncho Punch wasn't it?

It makes me feel so much better that others have noticed this. I hope it is explained later because it sure doesn't seem to make a lot of sense. I have also wondered where Abel's glasses go after he transforms. They are always back on his face when he transforms back. Do they just not show the scene where he pockets them?

You'll have to click on .hack//character, then scroll through to the fifth entry to see Tabby, the cat-girl. The girl with the pink hair is Shino.

This Type Of Transition Was Last Used Back In 2002 (Or Around The 90's, If You live In Japan) Known As The "Utopian Eagle Effect" (You Know Where This Is Heading To...) A Major Scene In A Japaneese Show/Anime Being Shown, With Constant New Voiceover Content In Every Instance The Said Scene Plays. (Good Times.... spoiler[...man i miss FOX Kids alot...] )

And What's With The "Cartoon Network's "Why Bother? No One's Awake/Sober Enough To Watch Whatever We Put Here Anyway" Designated Timeslot" Line, It's Funny, Yet Stupid! (No Offence To The .Hack//'ers In America And "The World" Over.)

And It's A Nice Homage To The Knights Of Columbus Lodge!)

I used to wonder the same thing about where Batman's rope goes when he throws it. They always forget little things like that. Like how come no villain has ever attacked a magical girl while she's changing.

Thanks For A 'Nother Example On How The U.E.E Works (See My Post In This Thread About This Thiesis).
There Are A Number Of Shows That Does This Effect Since The '90s (or 2002, if you're living under a rock, or at a post-9/11 shelter with no TV) Do You Think That This Special Effect Has An Impact On Anime?
If You Forgot What I Said, Pleae Look At Me U.E.E. Explanation On My Post Of This Topic.
