Toonami Saturday night!

Bleach - Yes, l love this part (Don Kannoji trying to fight Aizen, lol). Ichigo continues training.

Naruto - Sasuke went psycho, and with newfound powers, devastated the Sound ninja.

One Piece - I'm looking forward to the next arc, because I'm starting to get bored with these Davy Back games (and Foxy's laugh is getting irritating).

Soul Eater - Another great episode. Mostly dealing with overcoming inner mental demons.

IGPX - didn't watch.

Eureka 7 - Eureka is evolving! Eureka evolved into Butterfree! (Oh, and Dewy is about to strike!)

I liked their new montage about everyone being equal, and to not let anyone keep you down just because you're different. I felt they seriously underused InuYasha video & sound clips for this though. Outside of Naruto, and maybe Eureka 7 (which were both used well here), InuYasha is the only show on the schedule that tackles that exact issue in a meaningful way (with Inuyasha growing up being told he didn't belong anywhere, and was inferior, because he was a half-demon).

BTW, in two weeks, ThunderCats & Sym-Bionic Titan will be leaving the lineup to make way for the premier of Sword Art Online, and return of Big O (aired on both AS, and even the original Toonami, in the past).

I watched Silver Spoon, it was hilarious! I'll definitely be looking forward to future episodes. A bad coincidence my last meal was eggs, though.

Best YT show here!

Totally agree with Silver Spoon, it's shaping up to be an excellent slice of life series! I thought the first episode was a little frenetic, but the cast is very likeable. Also, the eggs D:

Well I've watched both parts of A-Ko the Versus (on YouTube)!

This is a completely seperate story from the four original films (although it's implied at the end that they are parallel universes).

In this two film series, A-ko & B-ko are bounty hunters living on a desert planet, and are trying to rescue C-ko (the daughter of a corporate bigwig here) from an ancient cult trying to destroy & rebuild the universe.

Don Konoji filler in Bleach is painful. Episode 50 was such waste. Don really starts to getting annoying soon. He is just a painful reacurring character.

Currently playing: inFamous: Second Son Gonna I've 100% it. Now just running around and doing the paper trail DLC.

I liked the first episode of Fantasista Doll (Fantasia Doll?). It was nothing special though so I'll just ignore it until a decent number of episodes are out.
Here's hoping it gets milked like crazy in merchandise. I wouldn't mind a trading card game based on it.

Oh my lord Brother's Conflict.
...What the crap have I gotten myself into.

I, can't even begin to describe what I just watched. I just.. Ahhh I don't know what to say >_<.

Okay so like 2 seconds in there's a talking squirrel. 4 minutes in a step brother starts hitting on her. 15 minutes in a DIFFERENT brother hits on her and by episode 2, you can tell 5 of the stepbrothers are in love with her.
Why do these stepbrothers think it's okay to fall in love with their stepsister?
I don't understand x3.

I'm sorrryy I keep disappearing >_<.

Don Kannoji doesn't appear that often, at all. I could be wrong, but I think his only appearances are:

  • When he first appears, and helps Ichigo with the hollow (canon)
  • One, or possibly two, episodes during the entirety of the Soul Society arc (filler)
  • Two episodes during the entirety of the Arrancar/Hueco Mundo arc (filler)
  • During the fight with the main villain of the Arrancar/Hueco Mundo arc (canon).

He may appear in the filler arcs, but TBH, I don't think I remember any.

I actually kind of wish he'd appear more often (around the main characters though, and not the side stories he's usually involved in). He's kind of like Bleach's Hercule.

I saw the title and the the promo pic for that, and was like "crap, this is gonna be another incest harem anime, isn't it?" Though I read the description and it sounded like it might actually avoid that direction...sorry to hear my first inkling was right. If I had known, I might've warned you...

I watched the first three episodes of Bastard!! on YouTube! (It's a six epidode OVA)

Long story short, 4 warlords are about to conquer the world (and soon thereafter release a monster that will destroy the world), and as a last ditch effort, the last vestages of civilization unseal a powerful sorcerer, in the hopes he will stop them (as he has world domination goals of his own).

I'm really enjoying this so far. I'm a big fan of the art style, the action is great, and the blend of lightheartedness & seriousness is perfect. It does tend to lean a bit heavy on the innuendo & fanservice, though.

I'd say it's kind of giving off the same vibes as Fatal Fury II: the New Battle & Fatal Fury: the Motion Picture, in terms of content.

Also, a bunch of stuff has been added, since I last watched this guy's stuff (on YouTube):

  • Wrath of the Ninja - the Yotoden Movie
  • Madox 01
  • Wild 7: Biker Knights
  • Wicked City
  • Demon City Shinjuku
  • Dominion Tank Police
  • Bounty Dog

Any ideas if any of these are good?

Sorry for the double post, BTW.

Checked out Servant x Service, and it was very funny! A little frenetic again though, but the main cast is excellent. The balance between mundane life and silliness reminds me a lot of the US Office.

So far, this season looks great for SoL fans!
