Really enjoyed Paranoia Agent, a very unique series and it kept me guessing until the end.
It also made me a bit sad, because this show signaled the end of the golden age of Anime on Adult Swim, it always seemed to me after 2005, the people behind Adult Swim decided to start phasing out all the the Japanese Anime stuff and go more towards the lower budget homegrown comedy shows.
Second that, I watched Fear Agent infrequently, but it was of a higher quality.
it was losing me in the beginning but the deeper in the better it got
plus one of the best intro theme songs for any anime
How apropos for my day today.
Children’s Hospital rulez!
So this kid came into my shop the other day and rented some Justice League episodes. I asked him his favorite superhero and he said “Batman, because he hurts people”. Regardless of the fact that Batman isn’t really a killer, it struck me as sad that little kids are more interested in a hero being violent and bloody then being an actual hero. Just my two cents.
Hey kids are becoming lil’ douche bags.
on the plus side he’s watching batman and not reading kick-ass
i watched justice league when i was younger and loved batman too but a lot of the time batman’s a douche too in more recent contineity (bruce not dick) and by all acounts is more insane than any of the people he’s ever fought.
still there isn’t a hero who would risk more or has been compasionate for their fellow man. he’s a better hero than kick-ass anyway
when i was a kid i told everyone i wanted to grow up and be the penguin. and my goal was to kill batman.
every other kid wanted to be a fireman or teacher, i wanted to be danny devito penguin..
i think all kids have always had odd priorities
Kids have been becoming LITTLE DOUCHE BAGS for a long time.
I went to a private school (long story) that had grades K – 12 in it. A little 2nd Grade boy came out of the cafeteria and for no reason flipped me the bird.
I was a Senior. I said amused, “Hey Kid. You might want to find out what that means before you keep doing that to people or your parents see you.”
And he said– I shit you not, “I know what it means. It means Fuck You. So FUCK YOU.”
I paused and said, “Well then… By all means, carry on with my apologies.” 🙂
..and that Kid grew up to be Ed Hardy.
Or Mark Millar.
or Dane Cook
LMAO I missed this perfect peice of comedic timing Gold
Isn’t that what being peddled around by the big 2 these days…
Why doesn’t Millar work for DC? Or, why doesn’t DC want Millar to work for them?
Because he’d have Wonder Woman being gang raped by the Metal Men with 3 issues.
Scew that guy
beacause joe quesada’s padlocked the vice with millar’s balls in it and won’t give up until ultimate avengers 48 issue 1 comes out. and it’s fast approching
They say, “Superior”
I say, “Shazam”
Spotty bait and switched me. 😦
5mins of this guy yappin’ wheres my Hendrix!?
Got me, ya’ Bastitch
Who doesn’t like Chappelle? Except for maybe hackslash2020. He he. 🙂
Hack likes his comedy sans color heh.
The Hall of Justice never seemed cooler.
thats almost as bad as being rickrolled!
I told you guys, if you post MORE THAN ONE video in a row I will be pulling them off of here. I have already had to remove 2 today. You ARE NOT limited to only on vid per thread BUT I don’t want the same person posting one vid and then another and then another all within a span of 5 minutes. Make sense?
I posted 2 vids because of those 2: Deemar and TheMSpot 🙂
hackslash tattled in other people lol
on other people
He’s the neighborhood Eddie Haskell (I’m old)
Anyone on here read Hawkworld the mini-series. A guy at the comic shop I go to recommended it. The first issue didn’t wow me I’m not particularly excited on reading the other issues, but I’m hoping someone on here enjoyed it too.
I haven’t Bello all I know is Geoff Johns run on Hawkman (Which was servicable)
more shameless self-promotion
is there any other kind? 🙂
no and we’ve all done it at one time or another
There is aways more room for shameless self-promotion.
edit: always room for more shameless self-promotion.
Jose are you planning on doing a review of Action Comics 890-892 in the future.
I had intended to put up something a bit different on the blog for today, given the upheaval in E’s situation I felt that perhaps would be inapprpriate. So in lieu of what I had initially planned to put up, I’ll put this up instead.
And E this may seem an odd choice of song to put up given your circumstance, but I feel that even thru the darkest times…a little light should shine thru.
I wish I could offer more than a vid to fully exspress…well you know. So I’ll let Charlie and Mike do it for me
Last I heard things were on the upswing, I hope that continues to be true
Godspeed to you and your Pops’!
what’s going on with E. hope your doing okay bud
E’s dad had a bad fall, but he’s doing well.
thats terrible hope everything ends up okay Elliot.
My best wishes to Elliot and his family and hope for his Dad to have a speedy recovery. Hang in there Elliot!
I like it!
Very mellow, makes me sleepy.
Jose did you ever see Macross DYRL?
Ya, I have it on dvd. I have an old VHS copy too that I bought in the 80’s.
cool I saw it on youtube and it was awesome! are there any other macross series you would reccomend?
Besides the actual tv show?
Macross 2012 Flashback – It’s only 30 minutes and is kind of a sequel to the tv show.
well I know the actual show is an obvious reccomendation 🙂 but thank you for listing the others I think I might check out Macross Plus first.
Ummm…don’t watch this video all the way through. There is a major spoiler.
okay thanks for warning.
It is a kick-ass song though. 🙂
It is. That song was not on the 2 OST’s that they released for the OVAs. You could only get it on the Sharon Apple EP “Cream Puff.”
There is some useless trivia for you. 🙂
Wow! That really was! 🙂
If SHARON APPLE is in the comment, its never useless Jose 🙂
This is probaly the only anime I’ve watched regularly. Does Voltron or Tranzor Z count?
Jose… Check your inbox. You’ll be glad u did.
You guys have a porn stash or somethin?
Lordy I think I ate something bad, my stomach feels like the violent sea churning.
i getting very nervous about the cap movie
they are putting the invaders in it i hope it just a cameo
i just want a good cap movie
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SCvtcfSKX5Q I wish I was this guy right now
i dont love batman’s new threads seen here courtesy of andy kubert
Yeah that doesn’t look great.
Funny how soon ya’ miss the boxer briefs.
Me no likey.
It could be worse Ballsy
I kinda like it. Although the painted wings on the helmet look kinda dumb. Reminds me of that Captain America movie with JD Salinger’s son.
It’s kinda weird and flimsy looking, but that could just be the stuntman and not the actual on camera suit
yeah it’s probabely just so it looks like the suit in a few shots at high speed the hydra soilders intrigue me a little tho
yeah i am hoping it was just a stunt suit hey remember the reb brown cap tv movies? the one with the motorcycle helmet with painted wings?
man that got ripped to shreds over the years funny what goes around comes around. i was hoping for the original ga ultimate cap look or close to it. we will see
Yeah that’s interesting.
We do get Arnim Zola in the movie.
Maybe Baron Strucker?
No Batroc ze Leape?….Sacre Bleu!!!
arnim zola’s being played by the actor who played the dreamlord from dr who
on the otherside of the coin screenshots of batman in arkam city he looks absolutely awesome
japanese culture time!
Yeah. Insideman had this up on his blog.
Still makes me happy
shameless…..fantastic but shameless
Japanese Deculture time!
ok this might get me banned but im doing it anyway
if i ever need to hypnotize my enemies in a cruel and adorable way i know where to go now
lol thats pretty much exactly what i thought first time i saw it smoke
i havent watched this anime why was it so huge? seemed like the biggest thing in anime at the time
I don’t know. I never watched the series. I just know that dance. That dance haunts my dreams.
I too was confused at how popular it was when it was released, but upon watching it, it was really funny, but not childish funny, and then some real epic sci-fi “mini” battle scenes happened, and they were truly epic. And once the plot was fully developed and known, it had a bit of a clever, ray Bradbury twist to it. It was a good show while it lasted but season 2 really destroyed its rep.
@the J-wow vid; Suddenly I’m fiendin’ for some soy milk and I would like it to come in jugs 🙂
ye might as well post that danjo video if yer going to getall otaku! :p
I want to hate her but I can’t.
She looks she could be Elvira: The Next Generation.
where do we talk about comics on here?
the open threads are all anime. i wish we had a special section after each wednesday for fan comic reviews, or just general discussion of the new titles released that week.
Yes, all the open threads are all anime all the time. People never talk about comics on here. Even our weekly post entitled “CCW Nation’s Comic Picks of the Week” (where people who comment on the blog go to talk about what comics they enjoyed this week) is just always filled with anime too.
Sarcasm over load.
I have no idea what you are talking about.
Of course, you HAD to reply to Deemar’s criticism with an ANIME clip. Booyah!
He loves spoiling my day.
Yeah, I’m sick an tired of you using that same girl with the Dirty Pair as your art for the open threads.
Oh, huh? That’s a different Dirty Pair? What?
Don’t mind Jose’s sarcasm, it’s something that grows on you. But we also love talking comics, I just picked up my stack and haven’t gotten around to reading any yet, but what’s on you mind Prying Eyes, Lets talk shop on the open thread, all these anime guys like American comics too.
They do, all forms of geekdom are welcome (except Larprs and Furries too weird man)
I just don’t understand you anime/manga guys
maybe it’s a cultural thing
Well I grew up on He-man, G.I. Joe and TF when I finally got 2 Anime and Manga I was older and anime/manga/comics wasn’t the “thing” growing up.
Now I try too get into this stuff, but aside from Ninja Scroll or Afro Samurai it leaves me perplexed and cold.
Love the visual, but can’t wrap my head around it.
I grew up with all of those too.
Sure, but how did you come to love what you love about Anime/Manga?
My love of G.I. Joe turned into a love of the military.
Didn’t you read my Anime/Manga post over at Swear All You Like?
Yeah, Deemar… DIDN’T YOU?
Yeah I did Foos
Need to reread it.
Yeah, only Hispanic people like Manga. You don’t mind if I call you Hispanic do you, Deemar? 🙂
I have afro/latin/Caribean lineage so sure, doesn’t really apply though.
dont know bout you guys but i think GL is back to being a great book.
I think Green Lantern is a great book as well.
I think Green Lantern is a great book…to help wipe the shit off my bathroom floor when I miss the toilet. It happens more often than you would think. For some reason out of all the comics I have I find Green Lantern is the best to use. 🙂
What about Bendis Avengers books?
I use those to clean up after “Tub Girl” comes over for a visit.
It’s 3 ply and also GREEN… So ecologically cool too.
Haven’t read it since issue#54. Felt like the same old, same old kinda thing. I also got sick of Mahnke’s artwork (the recent inconsistancy didn’t help either).
What about it did you guys find good about it? Just curious.
its fast pace now, much story is getting told. manhkes art has gottin better. larfleeze is in it right now so thats enjoyable. they just got past dealing with the predator in one issue. i just really love the creativness of the story really.
I may have to try Green Lantern again. I loved Mahnke’s art at first, but got really sick of it post-Blackest Night. I’ve actually met the guy a couple times. IDK, Johns has been letting me down as of late. I hope he can restore my hope in him. How has Brightest Day been? Haven’t heard anything about it recently.
Who’s the creative team?
I believe the creative team is Geoff Johns, Doug Mahnke and a thousand different inkers.
birghtest day summoned up IMO as….”ok”
Me watching the premiere of Nikita 2nite. Anyone else?
Me recording. Me like to watch shows like that in SLO MO.
Shit I should
In the American comic book industry other than superheroes what does the CCW nation think is the next popular genre in the medium?
Seriously though, that is a very good question. Have to think about that one.
lol JK I think one genre I like is Horror.
when it comes to comics i come for the superheroes i know there are good books of every other genre but i can get mysteries, sci fi, fatansy, horror, crime/cop and every other thing you can think of in other mediums tv movie books etc but if i want super hero adventures i pretty much have to go to comics apart from wildcard book series and the now popular super hero movie genre which are pretty far apart
so im not the guy to ask
Even though it’s not one of my favorite genres I would say horror.
I would say horror as well. Maybe crime.
You would think crime given the background of some of, I’ll say, Marvel’s “top talent,” as Deemar just pointed out it’s hard not seeing different genres blending or making it’s way into other genres.
I see stuff like Fear agent ya’know the genre Mash-up guys like Remender is doing, even Umbrella Academy and Cassanova.
More genre bending/mash-up books
Yeah, I see that a lot as well. I think that is why Planetary was one of my favorite series.
It’s the Prime example of the “mash up”
We shouldn’t be looking at a specific ‘Genre’ to replace or overshadow capes&cowls, not gonna happen anytime soon.
It’s Stuff like Hickman’s Nightly News,SHIELD,Pax Romana, Planetary as Spotty said.
Think of it like this, Superheroes are in themselves a “Hybrid” genre. Only that it centers on costumed protagonists, but has every other element of fiction within.
The next “Genre” I use loosely is exactly the same sans capes, a mash-up.
Ya, I think I am going to go with what D said. That is a definite trend and a good one at that.
Next to superhero? Hmm, I’ll go out on a limb and say fantasy/adventure. BUT I’m much more into drama and there is a growing market towards that. Which is grand.
@ the M-spot
I think its those para military usually post apocalyptic war games for X boxes etc.
I think what it should be is the destruction of muppets on a global scale
Kermit: in the former USSR in a school that disects amphbians, even ones made out of felt
Miss Piggy: Canada, where she can covert from American bacon to Canadian ham
What came 1st… the chicken or the egg? Who cares? Take that nameless hen and put her in a skillet with crisco and call it a day As for the eggs she’s always laying on……..
french tost anyone
BigBird: USA…gets a pardon. He hosted SNL back in the day
Anyway…yeah, the para military thing
Nikita was pretty enjoyable. I might just wanna write up about it on my blog. I’ll wait after next week to see if the show can carry good storytelling throuoght, and not just one episode.
PimpSlapStick! = Deemar that’s me
That list would be so much cooler if they picked stuff like Godzilla and Akira.
Because this series reduces the tension a bit between me and Deemar.
It’s the open hand of peace you’ve extended
Your off my shit list!
Well after having about the shittiest week of my life, I really want to spend this weekend drinking heavily…..damn age limit for alcohol
Sorry to hear that man. I’ll drink for the both of us.
Thanks Jose, I dont mean to bring this kind of stuff up here but Ive just been a wreck
No worries. We all have shit to deal with. Some more than others. I can sympathize. I had a couple of rough days this week myself. Actually, I’ve had a rough last couple of years. Hope things turn around for you.
Thanks man, i hope things get better on your end sa well
I just got done watching FreshInk online and she claims that she did not read Chew at first because she thought, and I quote, “it was another zombie book.” Now, I don’t know where to start, but I’m just glad she called herself a idiot.
I don’t care for Ms. Butler’s reviews anymore. Haven’t cared for a while now. Ever since she proclaimed how much she loved Old Man Logan. Her reviews and critiques are just awful now to me.
Yeah, that Old Man Logan was disturbing to me as well. There have been only like two books that she’s reviewed that I picked up, and any others I was already picking up anyway.
That whole “just another zombie book” thing is just fucking ignorant. Doesn’t she get paid to know that shit? If you don’t know what you are talking about chances are good that it would be better if you just shouldn’t say anything. The fact that she admitted to thinking it was a zombie book is just fucking dumb.
Well she did admit to being a idiot, doing a incredibly disservice to her viewers, and that Chew is original and funny. But, it’s unforgivable that it took a large amount of viewer responses to get her to review it.
Like John Suintres she’s a part of the Big 2 Machinery
I still think that her and G4 are Marvels bitch. Not only because they are the first to announce Marvels next big event, but also because they are airing those Marvel anime shows that are being produced by Jeph Loeb.
I honestly think X-play is far worse than Fresh Ink Online (I like Fresh Ink Online but I know a lot of people dont) because at least with Fresh Ink she likes and reccomends some pretty awesome books like Planetary, Walking Dead, and Invincible among others but X-play will give a piece of fucking shit like Halo ODST a 5 out of 5 but will give a good or decent game like Metroid Other M a 2 out of 5 and plus 70% of their reviews are jokes that arent funny and the other 30% is the review which doesent give me a good reason why I should Skip or Buy a game.
Makes ya wonder what’s really going down, scratch my back I scratch yours
Its probably all money based where Microsoft will shell out a shit load of cash so money whore websites like IGN, Gamespot, and of course X-play will give their games high rateings.
Should be a law against that.
Morgan Web is the hots, like a young Sugourney Weaver
I dont have proof of whether this is true or not (which it probably is true) but if you check out “Profesional Review sites” for Halo ODST it has 5 out of 5’s and 9 and 10 out of 10 review scores, but if you check out Amazon (which is a great place for checking out user reviews on any product)
you will see the average review scores for Halo ODST are 3 out of 5 review scores.
As soon as a media outlet receives income from an advertiser it basically becomes an extension of the companies and dependent on the success of their markets… Its SELF-censorship. There is no need for the companies to control or instruct the media from time to time. They know what the goal is. Its people like this that pick up the soap in the shower. These people have no soul or balls. That’s why the CCW is so important!
