Episode 313 - League of Champions #6

Episode 313: League of Champions #6

Giant superhero seeks giant super villain to fight. Must have own easily breakable doomsday weapon.

A comic based on a tabletop RPG based on the superhero comic genre? It sounds like a great idea in concept but actually, that's a terrible lie. It was the eighties so go with me here. Instead what we get is the adventures of the alleged superhero team known as The Champions (Rich White Guy, Big Guy, Iceman Clone, Blonde Victim Girl, Redhead Victim Girl, Brunette Victim Girl and Senile Grandfather) as they take on the subtly named organisation DEMON (hint: they might be evil) and their leader, Lifetime Movie Of The Week Man. But that's not all, as we have a character development subplot that not only never goes anywhere but is basically forgotten within the same issue. Add in a Batman Cosplayer, a nagging Dependant NPC and a Generic Immortal Evil Sorceress and you have the regrettable experience that is the League of Champions!

Episode 312 - Gundam Build Fighters: Life's Gunpla Battle Championship MkII, chapters 3-4

Episode 312: Gundam Build Fighters: Life's Gunpla Battle Championship MkII, chapters 3-4

Yes, you have to take part in a sport that you've dedicated your life to anyway for the sake of a girl who clearly likes you. Suck it up, princess.

Getting to take the day off school because a pair of big names from the sport-like substance you’ve dedicated your life to have come to visit in order to heap praise upon you sounds like a great deal, doesn’t it? Unless you’re Kale “I Like Zabanya” Cassel, in which case it’s just another bleak drudgery that the universe has chosen to heap upon him that he will complain endlessly about. Between that, his being considered at the top of his sport, a girl loving him unconditionally for no real reason and the entire universe arranging itself for his convenience, life is obviously one never ending cycle of bleak misery. But on, the upside, people do get to talk about what parts their plastic toy robots are made out of, and in the end, that’s what’s good in life.
