Episode 266 - Death in South America, parts 4-6

Episode 266: Death in South America, parts 4-6

Hitler; the baddie you use when you just don’t care anymore.

If you want a story about people dying in South America, then this funny picture weekly is for you. However, if you want plot, pacing, direction, characterization, believably or villains that have any motivation, goals or plans beyond just "they're bad guys" then you're plum out of luck, old chap. Instead, watch as Eagle, Major Bludd, The Baroness and Beanie Guy do battle with cardboard villains in the name of saving the world from a threat so bad that nobody ever bothers to explain what exactly it is. Throw in a forced ending and you have the second half of the linear series of illustrated panels that is Death in South America!

Episode 265 - My Way to the Championship, chapters 7-9

Episode 265: My Way to the Championship, chapters 7-9

Shining Finger unto others as you would have them Shining Finger unto you.

As the Gundam Tournament gets underway, things get more intense! And there's nothing more tense and dramatic then lengthy introductions of random user-contributed OCs and their custom plastic robot toys, right? Oh sure, you could give Darren a focus chapter that exists solely to crush his spirits or maybe introduce people that look like other people and have the same name as other people or even decide to jarringly shift the tone and talk about Monica's dead hooker mother, but that's not what we're here for. Because, in the end, it's all about Kale and how he should be allowed to godmode his way through the competition. That and the filler chapter. I'll let you decide which is more interesting.

Episode 264 - Dreamstar and the Court Of Dreams: The Gathering of Dreams, chapters 5-6

Episode 264: Dreamstar and the Court Of Dreams: The Gathering of Dreams, chapters 5-6

Yes, all the long, hard hours of shouting silly phrases, reciting rhymes, obeying your self-appointed leader, showers, mental intrusions, magic dinners, magic TV, magic leftovers and toiling under the merciless glare of a talking cat have come down to this one singular moment: shouting another silly phrase.

The moment you’ve all waited for has arrived! Yes, it’s the epic finale of Dreamstar and the Court of Dreams, and what a show the fic has in store for you! Um, actually that’s a good question. They’ve been training their magical powers for so long, showing off their samey attacks in repetitive training sequences, that you’d think it was time to use them against their hated foe, right? No? Well, how about the secrets of their final forms and ultimate attacks? Excited? No, me neither. Because first they’ve got to flounce around the magic castle, have some magic breakfast and forget about someone important (hint: you will too). But once all that’s done, we can get onto the action, right?
