LAST TIME: FOUR-WEEK EDITION
Goku and Frieza kept on fighting one another as Namek crumbled around them. Goku won, but was unable to escape Namek before it exploded. Luckily, he survived, but it'll be a while before he makes his grand reappearance. Meanwhile on Earth, our heroes used the Dragonballs to bring Krillin, Yamcha, Tien and Chiaotzu back to life, and all was good... Except for the fact that Frieza's still alive, is now a cyborg, and has come to Earth with his father to get his revenge on Goku.
Night Raid's been doing rather well for themselves in the aftermath of Chelsea's death. While in Kiroku, they managed to eliminate Bolic, the four Rakshisa Demons, and Seryu with ease. Things started to fall apart once they moved to the Capital, though. First Lubbock died, then Tatsumi got arrested, and while saving him from execution, they lost both Mine and Susanoo. Eh, at least they managed to kill Twink!Scar and Shazam in the process.
Kana's attraction to Shinichi was so great, it wound up getting her killed. Shinichi immediately revenged her, which was good, but his inability to properly mourn for her, on top of his slowly draining emotions, are kinda ruining things between him and Murano. Meanwhile, Ryoko Tamiya, now under a new name and having given birth, hired a private investigator to spy on Shinichi, which ended in him learning about the whole Parasyte situation. And after her meeting with Shinichi resulted in her reopening some still-festering wounds involving his mother... safe to say, he kinda lost it.
Mugen, Jin, and Fuu's journey toward the Sunflower Samurai has begun, but was not without a few detours. First, a group assassination by the man partially responsible for their paths converging. Second, an unprecedented split-up leading to Mugen and Jin being on opposite sides of a yakuza turf war. And finally, Fuu modeling for an ukiyo-e painting but finding herself in the middle of a Japanese-European slave trade racket.
Naruto's collaboration training with his toad friends went into some fairly weird places, but wound up producing surprisingly effective results once he and the rest of Team Yamato were sent out to assist Kakashi and Team 8 in their ongoing battle against Guren and her flunkies. Their main short-term goal: get Hinata out of a crystal pillar, somehow. Yukimaru is still weird as f**k.
After finding themselves trapped on the Frozen Highway, the Straw Hats not only found themselves split up, but at odds with the various members of a family of bounty hunters. Luffy is fighting against twins while Chopper and the Phoenix Pirates watch, Usopp and Sanji got kidnapped by the world's most annoying couple and their army of monster penguins, Nami and Franky have been sealed inside a submarine by a crazed hockey player, Robin's stuck on the Sunny with an only slightly creepy loli, and Zoro wandered his way into their headquarters, and is face-to-face with the big man himself...
DRAGONBALL Z KAI
This new guy sounds a lot edgier than I expected. Again, my fault for watching the abridged series first.
Just like the farmer from the first episode.
Or maybe that was just a ruse.
I'm not really a fan of this new OP, or the fact that it lacks credits.
“I'm gonna cut you down the middle.” Foreshadowing?
Is this kid bluffing? I think this kid is bluffing.
You're making a bold assumption there, Gohan...
OR MAYBE HE WASN'T BLUFFING.
If Frieza still had his renal system, he'd be pissing himself in fear right now
Oh goddammit Yamcha.
For someone who physically lacks a pair, Bulma certainly has one on her.
Personally, I'd be more afraid of the wild animals than the enemy soldiers if I was a tomb raider.
[new guy cuts Frieza down the middle] Foreshadowing.
That is some freaky-sounding metallic gasping.
HOLY SHIT NEW GUY.
You know what they say about assuming, don't you, Bulma?
This guy doesn't seem as hung up about his son dying as he should be.
One million times folded Hattori Hanzo steel.
Whenever someone hands over their weapon to you, they're either dumb as hell or more than ready to hold their own against its use on them.
Blew a hole right through him.
The consensus on the new guy: split down the middle. Just like Frieza.
AKAME GA KILL!
And then there were four.
At this point, I'm not sure if I should sympathize with Tatsumi or agree with Najenda.
REPLY TO ANGEL 1: “Dying to save Tatsumi IS dying for nothing.” Oh hey, you finally remembered his name!
Even Najenda thinks her not dying last episode was a questionable move.
Oh Wave, you know it's pointless to reason with the foolish.
Why the hell is Run still alive? I would've expected him to die sooner.
It's nice to know his heart's in the right place.
Just kiss already, you two.
“An Imperial Arms? How cute.” Wait how does she know tha-oh yeah, that's the EXP guy's weapon.
For a second, I thought half of him was frozen. Turns out the ice was just acting as a mirror.
“Have we not been good rulers?” That you have not.
Judging from the tone of his voice, Tatsumi must've seen enough bodies for all these random crucifixions to leave him unfazed.
The final battle's about to go down.
With the personal vendetta out of the way, it'll be easier to focus squarely on what really matters. That's why she's going.
“Seems like the perfect place for me to kill you.” “Likewise.”
Back in those days, Akame was an Asuna cosplayer.
Take that, random businessmen!
Well... okay, that's actually a kinda sweet, if not macabre, reason to kill her.
I'm almost tempted to enter that poll, even though I don't watch Pre-Flight anymore.
Kurome's gone, so now's the time for Run to make his move on Wave, if you know what I mean...
Three on one is almost kinda unfair.
And then Big Daddy from Bioshock interrupted the fight.
THE BULLETS DO NOTHING.
Hoshit, more flunkies.
This is actually a pretty stylish episode.
Oh goddammit Wave.
OH GODDAMMIT TATSUMI.
Isn't it a little early for it to be raining, I mean, nobody's died yet.
HIRONORI TANAKA SAKUGA SPOTTED.
Welp, she's dead.
“Make sure she gets a proper burial.”
YOU'RE GONNA CARRY THAT WEIGHT.
And then Wave disappeared into the wilderness, never to return.
“That's it, let it all out...”
What in the fresh hell are those two planning on doing?
And why the hell is Akame missing from the end credits again?
PARASYTE: THE MAXIM
Puffy vest guy is going to get himself killed.
An underground parking garage? That's never good.
Told ya you were gonna die, dude. Something wicked this way comes...
Oh, so puffy vest guy was private investigator guy's accomplice.
“Something smells really bad in here.” Must be rotting flesh, it's always rotting flesh.
This time, the victim has a hime cut.
Oh goddammit Shinichi.
Am I the only one who thinks these Parasytes are a little too overpowered?
Well, at least the fight's awesome.
I love you, Migi.
Bravo, excellent fight.
And now something else smells really bad in here.
Private investigator guy is 110% done with this show.
Welcome to Children's Hospital: where everyone is too incompetent to wipe their own ass properly.
Now's not the time to be difficult, Migi.
And then he decided to fight for the greater good.
Oh goddammit Murano.
Sometimes it takes me longer than I'd like to understand what they mean by “dining area”.
STRANGE PASTTIME OF THE WEEK: Playing piano in nothing but your tightest speedo.
Meanwhile, in Shinichi's dreamspace...
Nightmares for days? Nightmares for days.
Why are you so worried about going to class right now? With as many times as you've walked out, you might as well be a professional hooky-player.
Oh goddammit Migi.
Neat, a Warren truss bridge.
This guy seems pretty cool for a murderous Parasyte, though that's probably thanks to his expressiveness.
Interesting music choice.
When you're paranoid like Shinichi, you can never be too sure about anything.
IMPERFECT LANDING 6/10.
Three Parasytes to one body. Should've seen that one coming.
Of white populations. It's an epidemic you don't hear about. Whole communities strung out. It's because the drug war focuses primarily on blacks. President Clinton even spoke about it. He says white middle class death is at an all time high because of overdoses and suicides.
I recently purchased a PCI-E SSD card, but it's running st SATA speeds.
Apparently, I need to delete the system32 virus to make it run faster. But I heard renaming the folder to system128 makes it run faster than a Dreamcast. So what should I do, delete or pour water on my power supply?
obvious bait, but with pci-e SSDs there should be something in the bios you're supposed to change for that. or your motherboard only supports sata speeds for it
I love that video so much. I think at first Trump was suspicious of Carson lying in wait to ambush him and do something to embarrass him, then when he realized that wasn't the case didn't know how to play it off and didn't want to be out-crazied, so he hung out. I think Bush was also nervous about the two weirdos embarrassing him before walking by them and realizing they were just being nuts.
Really just a glorious piece of retarded American alpha male tension
