Episode 317 - Gundam Build Fighters: Life's Gunpla Battle Championship MkII, chapters 7-10

Episode 317: Gundam Build Fighters: Life's Gunpla Battle Championship MkII, chapters 7-10

I know you're lying and that this kit was made by my dead twin brother because my one-dimensional prop girlfriend told me so.

Having run out of Gundams to beat up, Kale decides instead to beat up plastic toy robots from other shows instead. His team reacts to this decision in the most basic and obvious of ways that would come naturally in such a situation: they run around making strange noises, force comparisons to episodes of Gundam 00, wonder about Kale’s pre-pubescent brother and if he’s getting his rocks off (ewww) and find new ways to humiliate Darren. Throw in a trip to the biggest Gundam convention in all of Maryland (with attendance figures in excess of three) and the return of Kale’s infinitely more interesting evil twin brother (goatee optional) and you have the non-definite un-conclusion to this replacement fic for a replacement fic for a show about the fandom of a show! Eargblergh!

Art Fail - Headband people fight headband people

It's tempting to call all of Robotech: The Sentinels Rubicon one gigantic art fail. It's... a mess, with awkward characters that don't look anything like their original animated designs, skewed perspectives, weird-looking mecha and ships, cluttered backgrounds full of techno-junk and all manner of other things. Added to that is the heavy-handed and ugly inking and then the awkwardly executed tones in part one, and you have one gigantic mess.

Oh, and the terrible dialogue doesn't help any either.

Episode 316 - The Amazing Star-Spider, chapters 17-31

Episode 316: The Amazing Star-Spider, chapters 17-31

She beat up his men, broke up his arms deal, defeated his pet supervillains, crank called his office, slashed his tires, spammed his inbox and ran a leaf blower outside his mother's house at two in the morning.

The Amazing Star-Spider might actually be continuing! That's right, it's time for shadowy people to stand around in nondescript surroundings and vaguely introduce other indistinct characters. Meanwhile our heroine sort of fights crime, arguably battles bad guys and might actually fall in love if you want to be really creepy about it. However the real action comes when her new mysterious mentor (hint: not Hawkman) uncovers the most shocking and radical thing he can - a plot! That's right, our villain plans to... stand around in nondescript surroundings and vaguely introduce other indistinct characters, it seems. So join us for what promises to be the abrupt conclusion of The Amazing Star-Spider... Or is it?
