The Click
July 21 - 27

by Brian Hanson, Jul 21st 2007

Greetings galore, my fine and friendly readers, to another Click installment, imbued with fine features! Today there are new shows of practically every kind, with which to enjoy with both your ears, eyes, and mind. That is if a certain boy wizard with his latest chapter, doesn't take all your time away, leaving your TV alone as an unwanted captor.

So sit back and relax, my illiterate friends - herein lies programming to thrust into your ocular lens!

Astro Boy
(Adult Swim)
Sunday July 22 2:00am - Episode 2 "Colosso" (Repeats Sun Jul 22 5:30am)

Astro Boy is the first anime series ever made, to which most people would say, "I will not watch this! I must be swayed." Consider this quite the sway - Astro Boy has made my day! Cheesy dubbing and limited animation put aside, this is a series with considerable stride. The animation, while limited, is never crude, and is filled with personality and humor, and should not be booed! Osamu Tezuka's storytelling skill is on display as well, casting this professional anime viewer under a delicious spell! So watch Astro Boy, will you not? It's charming and timeless, and that's saying a lot.

(Cartoon Network)
Saturday July 21 10:00pm - Episode 66 "The Fishcake Frenzy; Freeze Dried, French Fried, Freaked Out Fracas"

General Lee Fishcake attacks Bo-Bobo and company, and oh crap nothing else rhymes with "company."

The proud and stubborn Re-l is hot on the heels of catching her pray, Vincent, but contact with the outside world gives her a fatal disease, and perhaps a terrible scent.

Eureka 7
(YTV)
Friday July 27 11:00pm - Episode 35 "Astral Apache" (Repeats Sat July 28 2:30am)

The Gekkostate stages a daring rescue attempt, but like most things in life, the results are slightly unkempt.

Gundam Seed Destiny

Friday July 27 9:30pm - Episode 20 "Past" (Repeats Sat July 28 1:30am)

The fearless Gundam pilots reflect on their past and feelings and philosophies and stuff, while all the kids watching at home wish the robots would start fighting and bleeding and acting tough.

Kyo kara Maoh!
(ImaginAsianTV)
Tuesday July 24 5:30pm - Episode 26 "At the End of the Life Cycle" (Repeats Tue July 24 8:30pm, Wed July 25 1:00am, 12:30pm)

The sordid history of Yuri, the current demon king, is discussed, and involves matters that are met with no small amount of disgust.

Ueki forms a new team to fight in the so-called "Battle of the Supernatural Powers," but his most-wanted teammate is targeted by an evil-doer, who glowers!

MAR
(YTV)
Friday July 27 7:00pm - Episode 9 "The Training Gate - Merilo and Bumoru"

Ginta and the others travel to alternate dimensions to train and hone their skills! I hope this somehow involves no small amount of thrills and chills.

Naruto
(Cartoon Network)
Saturday July 21 9:00pm - Episode 97 "Kidnapped: Naruto's Hot Spring Adventure"

Naruto and his dirty-minded teacher, in the buff! As though that were not reason to watch enough! And later, Tsunade's personal effects become stolen, which leads to punching in areas that later become swollen.

(YTV)
-Friday July 27 8:00pm - Episode 94 "Attack! Fury of the Rasengan"
-Friday July 27 8:30pm - Episode 95 "The Fifth Hokage: A Life on the Line"

Finally YTV hears my benevolent cries! I have honest and accurate Naruto listings, here before my eyes! Calough Caleigh, O Frabjous Day! I almost cannot think of anything else to say! Oh well, here goes: Naruto and Tsunade and Jiraiya fight Orochimaru, but why? Who knows.

Noein
(Sci Fi)
Monday July 16 11:00pm - Episode 5 "And Then..."

Several of the kids embark on a time-traveling escapade, in order to defeat a villain of which they are all afraid. A "Back to the Future" quote feels almost necessary, though working it into a rhyming scheme is decidedly hairy.

One Piece
(Cartoon Network)
Saturday July 21 10:30pm - Episode 99 "Pirate VIVI"

Luffy and his gang, having vanquished their most recent foe, politely ask Vivi to stay with them, and be their 'bro.

Tenjho Tenge
(Fuse)
Saturday July 21 12:30am - Episode 6 "Illusion" (Repeats Sat July 21 1:00pm, 1:30pm)

The fight in the bowling alley escalates, and while pounding seven flavors of crap out of other kids, seemingly uncover their fates.

Tokko
(Sci Fi)
Monday July 16 11:30pm - Episode 5 "A Father, All Alone"

Tokko isn't nearly as memorable as creator Tohru Fujisawa's GTO, but it contains enough boobs and blood for any sex and carnage aficionado. So basically this week's episode has boobs and blood, I'd fathom to guess, though whose blood and whose boobs... but I digress.

Yu-Gi-Oh! GX
(Cartoon Network)
Saturday July 21 7:30pm - Episode 114 "Win Mr. Stein's Duel, Part 2"

The game show "Win Ben Stein's Money" has been off the air for at least five years - what did they expect to receive for making this reference? Cheers? Stern silence is more what they deserve, and should learn to make references not from the stone age. The nerve!

(Encore Action)
Sunday July 22 3:45am (Repeats Fri July 27 4:20pmr, Sat July 28 12:00am)

There are Pokémon movies galore, as per any usual week, and the dull Weathering Continent rounding up a lineup I would describe as "weak." Maybe not "weak" per se, but "predictable," let's say.

I suppose I'm done for this week, and should go and beat a hasty retreat. I will see you all next time, though no doubt I am past my prime. Goodbye, all!
