ThunderCats 2011 Episode 09 – Build-A-Berbil Workshop

Body: 

Man alive, I thought it would be a few episodes after what I had watched before I would be won over by the show. Yet about halfway through this one, I was already won over not just by the episode proper, but the whole show in general. Had I ONLY watched this after the previous episode, I would've probably finished this show earlier. Alas, that was not to be the case, but better late than never.

Otaku Evolution Episode 116 - Dragon Ball Z: Dead Zone

Body: 

I really should cut down on these long pre-credit and post-credit sequences, and I'll probably do that soon, but for now, I spend days meticulously putting them together. It makes me appreciate animation more, because they're barely animated, just a step or two above a slide show. I don't know if I intended them to continue story ideas from my comic strips (which frankly, I can't see anybody getting unless they read them, which nobody did) or they're there to provide atmosphere/pad runtime. I both love and loathe making them. Perhaps I simply want to show off. But if I didn't, I wouldn't be making these videos at all.

 

ThunderCats 2011 Episodes 03 – 08 – Boring Vessels, Lively World

Body: 

Some unexpected computer problems the last week created a delay in my rewatch of the ThunderCats 2011 I had already seen. Instead of going through with my plan of watching smaller chunks, I watched the whole cat and kiboodle instead. So let's end this so we can get to what I think of the episodes I HAVEN'T seen.

Otaku Evolution Episode 115 - Dragon Ball: Curse of the Blood Rubies

Body: 

 

Yikes, this one's pretty short. Introducing Dragon Ball Month on Otaku Evolution, where I comb through some of the movies and try to find the spirit of the source material in the midst of "original" stories. Here I start with the first Dragon Ball movie, Curse of the Blood Rubies, and you'll understand why the video's short, because the movie is less than an hour long. So I padded it with that wonderful book end storyline nonsense that nobody appreciates but me. There's still a review in there, though, it's not just a summary with quips.

 

For the most part, anyway.

Thundercats (2011) Episodes 1 and 2 – A Cold Omen?

Body: 

To be diplomatic, a word that could be used to describe the reaction to the upcoming ThunderCats Roar is… spirited. For the majority part it is negative in outlook, but like any cartoon final judgment ought to be made once episodes premiere. Another major consequence of this news is the pining for the 2011 iteration of the franchise, cancelled before its story completed, like other unfortunate Cartoon Network shows Sym-Bionic Titan and Beware the Batman (although unlike them, it wasn’t written off). Now the outlook on THAT show is the diametric opposite.

Otaku Evolution Episode 113 - Tenchi Muyo! OVA 3

Body: 

Ugh, it took me forever to make this video. For one, I had a cold, a bad back, and then I had to have my gallbladder removed, I shit you not. During and after that litany of health crises, plus recovery, plus my usual procrastination, I finally finished this beast of a video that really wore me out, because DAMN is this OVA just painful, emotionally and apparently physically. So I will probably never, ever watch this ever again after all this, and I say, good riddance. Maybe I'll finally get over my anger and just move on.

But, as you know, I'm not really a "moving on" sort. The third Tenchi Muyo! OVA is my "Slowly I Turned" moment. I guess sort of like that third Rebuild of Evangelion movie. This is an anime that is, quite literally, bad for my health.

Outlaw Star Episode 26 [Final] – Incomplete Legend

Body: 

After the somewhat disappointing rote nature of the penultimate episode, the final one puts us right at the centre of the Leyline with all the surviving players. So I guess this is where the series puts us through the ringer of some revelations and an epic final battle that really gets the blood pumping, right?

In three one syllable words: Yes. Yes. Yes.
