Start your own idol group, Gene. Just do it. Babymetal2. I'm waiting for it.

I can't tell if the girl on the far right has a discolored Space Ace face paint, Eric Carr's Fox, or Paul Stanley's REALLY obscure Bandit look.

It's true, that Boku no Pico HAS aged and the joke has become too obvious and the series too well known even for those who have just started their long roam on the road of an Otaku. But there should still be another good series to recommend....for the sake of lol's and trolls.

Any ideas? I'd say any ridiculous and somewhat awful fanservice-soaked and brainless show... Eiken? Bible Black with english dub? Or something newer? I admit that I loathe many newer series that only shine on the boob-department rather than the good script and characters.

Nnnnnnn-noop!
It's been around for twenty years, fellow geezer (or unaware newbie), it can't be done.
Even the very act of doing so makes everyone around you feel either old or superior to you.

What is this, anyway, cadet hazing?--We're already a decade past the idea that anyone would be unfamiliar with anime, now it's just a question of exposure.
Let's face it, it's just not "our" thing anymore to troll newbies about, so let's just all have a drink and cry into our beers about years gone by. Sad

How about Aku no Hana or Togainu no Chi?

At least it's not his son making a "homage" to Love Live?

CNN just recently did a half-hour piece on KISS. Yeah, while his other KISS partner leans more on the artistry, Gene is all about business. Part of his mansion is dedicated to all kinds of KISS merchandise. He estimates the KISS brand worth to be somewhere between $1-5 billion. Behind all that mask, he's a pretty smart businessman.

I haven't seen the episode, but when I first saw that screenshot I was wondering if someone was going to get a phone call from Gene Simmons lawyer.
