September 6th - 12th

by Brian Hanson, Sep 6th 2008

Hey! You, there! The person who is reading this column right now, who missed the column I did last week! I am going to single you out and make you read it before continuing any further. It has lots of stupid cartoon doodles, made by yours truly! Sloppily made by yours truly, but made by yours truly nonetheless.



Gurren Lagann
(Sci Fi)
-Monday September 8 11:00pm - Episode 9 "Just What Exactly is Human?"
-Monday September 8 11:30pm - Episode 10 "Who Really Was Your Big Brother?"

Now and Then, Here and There
(Sci Fi)
-Tuesday September 9 12:00am - Episode 9 "In the Chasm"
-Tuesday September 9 12:30am - Episode 10 "Prelude to Chaos"

The Sci Fi Channel finally sobers up after a few weeks of lame repeats of stuff that fell out of a time portal from 1997, and remembers that, oh yeah! They were showing two markedly different and yet equally quality shows. Gurren Lagann returns to pure giant robot bliss, with a duo of episodes involving the mysterious, doe-eyed girl Nia, who takes a little shining to Simoun precociousness, while Now and Then, Here and There once again depresses the ever-loving s*** out of you as the devastation and sorrow and madness of war pile on for the big finale.

PREMIERES:

Bleach
(Adult Swim)
Sunday September 7 12:30am - Episode 79 (Repeats Sun Sep 7 3:30am)

(YTV)
Saturday September 6 9:30pm - Episode TBA

Some time ago somebody, wise and kind, told me which episode of Bleach was airing on YTV. As the weeks wore on, I have forgotten the kindly man's words, and now, faced with inaccurate and unhelpful TV scheduling sites, I am forced to wear the badge of shame; Bleach's premiere on YTV this week is a big, fat TBA. It's new, though! Just not AS new as the episode airing on Adult Swim, which has our heroes invading the dangerous "Bount" mansion to put an end to their ethereal chicanery, once and for all.

Blue Dragon
(YTV)
Saturday September 6 8:30pm - Episode 1 "The Shadow Comes Forth"

Shu is a plucky, high-spirited little scamp who dreams of being the best Knight Master ever! Which means his life is unusually droll and dull until he is called upon his inner power to protect the people he cares about, and then must set out for adventure! Why can't he just stay at home and enjoy his powers, you ask? Because. Just... because.

Code Geass
(Adult Swim)
Sunday September 7 1:00am - Episode 19 "Island of the Gods" (Repeats Sun Sep 7 4:00am)

Zero and Kallen and Suzaku and Euphie are whisked away to a deserted island after an unprovoked attack! Actually that's a lie, as the attack was entirely provoked because of Zero's numerous and well-publicized attacks against the various powers-that-be. It's a deserted island, though! All kinds of Gilligan's Island-esque shenanigans are bound to result.

Ghost Slayers Ayashi
(ImaginAsianTV)
Wednesday September 10 10:00pm - Episode 6 "Dragon Aura Running" (Repeats Thu Sep 11 2:30am, 7:30pm)

An evil snake monster runs amok, slinking about and generally doing giant evil snake-like things. What can possibly get this inhuman demon to leave poor Edo alone? Perhaps maybe a human sacrifice??

Mai Hime
(ImaginAsianTV)
Wednesday September 10 8:00pm - Episode 6 "The Burning Age of 17" (Repeats Thu Sep 11 1:30am, 6:00pm)

If you're "burning" at the age of 17, something needs to be inspected by a certified health professional. Physical wellness aside, Mai gets roped into helping out at a friend's wedding, where all kinds of mischief and roughhousing erupts.

Moribito - Guardian of the Spirit
(Adult Swim)
Sunday September 7 1:30am - Episode 3 "A Fight to the Death" (Repeats Sun Sep 7 4:30am)

Balsa, the badass, buxom, spear-tossing bodyguard, pushes herself to her physical limits as she attempts to elude the Emperor's highly-skilled team of assassins. I can think of no better time when a large rack and spear-skills could come in handy.

Naruto
(Cartoon Network)
-Saturday September 6 9:00pm - Episode 194 "Mysterious Curse of the Haunted Castle"
-Saturday September 6 9:30pm - Episode 195 "The Third Super-Beast"

(YTV)

Ninjas and their ninja tricks! Naruto and his ninja-like compatriots visit the so-called "Land of Honey" in search of a missing person(s) on the Cartoon Network, and on YTV, Naruto falls into a trap while trying to save Hinata from a band of

Planetes
(ImaginAsianTV)
Wednesday September 10 9:30pm - Episode 6 "The Lunar Flying Squirrels" (Repeats Thu Sep 11 2:00am, 7:00pm)

Speaking of ninjas, the crew from Planetes encounters a group of wacky space ninjas that entertain us with some tricks through the Moon's lower gravity. That sounds rediculous, yeah, but... just watch.

Pokémon
(Cartoon Network)
Saturday September 6 9:30am - Episode 540 "Our Cup Runneth Over"

Dawn, Ash's new erstwhile female non-sexualized compatriot, plans to make a comeback to the world of Pokémon wrangling through a contest held at a Pokemon Center.

Scrapped Princess
(ImaginAsianTV)
Wednesday September 10 9:00pm - Episode 6 "The Knights' Enchanting Melody" (Repeats Thu Sep 11 6:30pm)

Pacifica had been poisoned! Except that now she's fine, because of an antidote! An antidote brought to her by her faithful traveling companions, who have since learned of her particular, strange malady. Of being a girl that is supposed to bring about the end of the world.

Shin-chan
(Adult Swim)
Sunday September 7 12:00am - Episode 47 (Repeats Sun Sep 7 3:00am)

Poop, fart, Santa Claus, urine, (crude euphemisms for testicles), pee-pee ca-ca, butts. Oh, and here's a new episode of Shin-chan!

Zatch Bell
(YTV)
Saturday September 6 9:00pm - Episode 93 "A Voice From Another World"

A new episode of Zatch Bell on YTV?!? Outrageous! In this here episode-thing, Zatch and his human pet Kiyo do some investigatin' on behalf of the now-reformed former villain Dr. Riddles. DR. RIDDLES. Doctor. Riddles.

No big movie-feature shows are on this week, so I'm off the hook as far as trying to find something potentially humorous yet possibly deadly to say about Kai Doh Maru or Blood: The Last Vampire. I'll be back next week! Of course!
