The well-known psychoanalyst Dr. Fasier Cane?

In theory it should be “pored” at the end, but perhaps “poured” also works in this horrific context.

I don't know what got me the most, the dominatrix interrogating an 8-year old and then defaulting to the Katsudon gag or Seiichi summoning Abe Lincoln to free a slave.

Shame that we just got the full Harem together and now Louise has to go off.

Did the doctor cast "Get Better!" on James Beckett?

Honest Abe's ghost is either proof the author has no idea what they're doing, or knows exactly what they're doing, and the fact that no one can tell which is true is probably the biggest stroke of genius of all.

Until you brought in "Dr." Cane, I feared John Trent was a reference to the Christofascist psychobabble author with Focus on the Family. Then I realized this was a delightful homage to John Carpenter's In the Mouth of Madness. Very Happy Well played, sir. well played.

Well, it was nice to see the reviewer got his money's worth from that creative writing class he took at his local community college!

Man, I love you're writing. Madness can sometimes bring about great art. I'm glad you decided to seek help, some people find it very difficult to admit they have a problem. I don't think you've realize that you aren't insane, really. You see the thing is that this show really is stupid. Proud, unabashedly stupid. There are few things that can take stupid to such high levels. The only issue I have with your review, is that I was expecting the doctor to be in a chair and when that chair turned around, all that was left was his skeleton, clutching his book in his shriveled, rigor morticed hands. A lone light bulb hanging over his head.

Ugh. I live within a stone's throw of that godforsaken Focus on the Family center. I had no idea that awful man shared a name with the *superior* John Trent.

[sees this week's thumbnail]

"Hank, wake up! It's the ghost of Abraham Lincoln!"

*gasps* "Who?"

[reads the review]

Okay, so it wasn't just me.

Lincoln: What matters is that you need to believe in yourself.

Finn: NEVER!!

I am loving these exceptionally creative breakdowns. Sorry you have to watch the show, but, well, schadenfreude indeed.

And there is two more episode of this anime, so your brave reviewer finally can ascended to next level of reality because any one who survive this anime, level up to become invincible immune for everything demigod, so you become ready for future when come season two and if you level up enough you maybe discover truth that Fruit of Evolution is brother of Moonlit Fantasy Laughing Twisted Evil

Ep11- So hard to remain positive when we get such witty banter (twice!)
Rantze:"Barnabus-sensei!"
Seiichi:"What's thier relationship?"
Mage:"He's Rantze's sensei (teacher)"
I checked out at the "triple-anus punch". James will have to level up for this one...
