Stuff we want to talk about
Wednesday, July 12, 2006

The entire point of this strip is to point out that cats are dicks. Evil evil dicks. Karen (the real Karen) just can't get this through her female head... Honestly, it seems like all women believe that cats are the cutest wootest siwwyest aminals on the face of the planet. The truth is that they want us all DEAD. They don't care that they'll never taste Friskies (TM) ever again if they succeed, they just want every last human to die by rabies. Fuck 'em. Friday's strip will elaborate a bit more on tabby's insatiable lust for human blood.

The other thing I wanted to talk about today is some of the anime licenses that were recently announced at Anime Expo last week. FINALLY, we'll be getting Gunbuster on DVD in R1! This is the greatest news I've heard since finding out that we'd be getting the hyper-encoded Giant Robo in picture perfect digital quality a few years back. Gunbuster is a dream come true... But then where does that leave other shows that were announced like .Hack//Roots and Guyver (GUYVER?!)? Well, they are the nightmares that keep me awake at night.

Seriously, are people still buying this stuff? The .Hack series is the lazy man's WoW (it's for retards who are too lazy to play a REAL massive online RPGs and have to resort to another person writing their own lame adventure and setting it to shitty animation). And Guyver?! Are they still making this series, or is this just the old, really terribly animated series that anime companies think is good and people will buy because it's ooooold and a *cough* classic? Either or, the big question ADV should have asked about this title is "how many old school fanboys still remember this show, and how many of them remember that it is beyond terrible?"

Solty Rei and Black Lagoon both sound promising (haven't seen either yet), and it should come as absolutely no surprise to anybody that we're going to get the Ghost in the Shell: SAC movie once the 2nd Gig is done. Not too shabby, but still, if people can remember Gunbuster, why can't they get Combustible Campus Guardress too? Or how about buying the rights to Tenshi Ni Narumon (I'm Gonna Be an Angel) away from Synch-Hole-Point and releasing the last half (the better half) of the series Stateside? Do I have to think of everything myself?
