It's a rare season when I have more than 5 shows to watch. And Summer doesn't look too shabby either! Smile

My Hero Academia will always be the most anticipated show for me. Considering they are adapting two of the best shonen arc of all time, we already have our AOTY. I love studio BONES.

Tao Pai Pai isn't actually a member of the Red Ribbon Army, though. He's just a hired assassin. It's like if Freezer would hire Hit, and nobody would view Hit as a member of Freezer's army.

I'm pretty shocked they didn't make it on here. I'd have given them the top spot. Yeah, a lot of the generic marines are cannon fodder, but their commanders tend to have insane game-breaking superpowers. One of their admirals can kick you at light speed and then turn into a laser so you can't counterattack. Another one is basically a living volcano. Heck, One Piece has been running for so long and Luffy has beaten up like a million people, yet we've never seen a marine admiral lose a fight to anyone except another Marine admiral! And the result was so catastrophic that it permanently changed the ecosystem of the island they were fighting on.

Plus, while most of these organizations are powerful, the Navy has authority over the entire planet. Zeon and the Red Ribbon Army may want to conquer the world, but the Navy's bosses already have.

This, along with "scrub coral" instead of "scub" were both brought up in the talkback last time this ran. Maybe these can be corrected before a third run?

At least the "there" for "their" got fixed. Smile

The exclusion of the World Government/Marines from One Piece makes no sense. Their corruption and ill deeds in the name of justice are one of the driving forces for conflict in the series.

I thought that this article was released before.

Another error in the Gundam section is that the colony drop only destroyed Sydney and the surrounding areas, not the entire continent.

The most well known may be Dr. Gero,


Who never appeared in the series until much later and whose threat level is considerably less than his creations

With them being Mercenaries who by their introductions are made up a handful of people?
No.

We've apparently gone from having people who think Africa is a country to thinking the city of Sydney is a continent. Where's the cast of WLIIA to bust someone's chops.
