Thank you for that very entertaining review. That said, I'll avoid this show like the plague Laughing .

Amongst many other things, I am now blessed with the knowledge that the word 'codswallop' is employed to great effect on both sides of the Atlantic!

Between this and how Zac characterized it on the podcast, I must watch, nay, bear witness to this.

I need to watch this even more now. My expectations are even lower somehow then before. Glad to hear Jaden's dialogue in this show is often like his tweets, that somehow pleases me!

I've been looking for another incompetent fun time since I fell in love with Genma Wars (after my brain cells mended themselves back together from breaking at the mere stupidity of Genma Wars' every animation cut, poor music, poor story, inadvertently funny dialogue, awful characters, etc), so I'm really hoping this is going to be it! Some of what your review described reminded me of how I felt about Genma Wars, so I am eager to find out!

I am curious, is this one of those things where 6 episodes is way too long or mercifully short?

"Oh, look, Netflix was the responsible for this garbage"

Ahhhh, no. It was the people behind it. Remember folks, Netflix only gives you the money, you know what to do with it.

Even though I am curious to witness this train wreck, I refuse to watch it. Every person that watches it equals ratings and they may think that it's a "popular show". No way I want any more of this crap produced.

I'm going to watch. It's kind of like how you know you probably shouldn't watch a World Star Hip Hop video. It's probably something you shouldn't be supporting, but you just can't help but watch the train wreck.

I mean, the classic music tracks per se don't deserve an F

Their usage in this show does. I think it's important to point that out.

Oh know, Will Smith's brood is in anime now too?! After he ruins movies with things like After Earth he moves to voicing anime.
And why is Jude Law and Steve Buscemi voicing in this? Susan Sarandon? Talk about paycheck cashing.
And I also feel bad for the director Furuhashi because he did Rurouni Kenshin and Gundam Unicorn.

If I had any interest in watching garbage for the sake of it, I'm sure this would be magnificent.

That's what they make the rating system for. Even if a million people watch it, if those same people all give it a 1-star review, they'll probably think twice before deciding to greenlight any more.

So the leftover scraps from Animation Domination aren't very good? Should I be surprised?

Hopefully it will be a gateway anime for some dumb teenagers who will grow up and get over it... it's probably still better than the non-anime things teenagers like.
