Episode 353 - The Amazing Star-Spider, chapters 40-45

Episode 353: The Amazing Star-Spider, chapters 40-45

Oh come on, you rip off one guy’s face and nobody ever lets you live it down.

It’s time for more of The Amazing Star-Spider! But what does this section bring, you may ask? Well, if you’re a fan of dropped plots, then this is the fic for you. That’s right, it starts not one, not two but three brand-new plotlines without any thought of the story left by the wayside. And if you like teenage angst, then this is the fic for you. You can sit back and enjoy as Teresa moans and whines her head off about the sudden shocking and senseless twist in her life that’s brushed over and forgotten in seconds. And if you’re a fan of creepy women leering at other creepy women, then this is definitely the fic for you. Not only does it have more of the worst love interest ever, but we’ve got a whole new barely-described beauty to make you feel uncomfortable and wonder what the hell the writer was thinking. If this is what you want in a fanfic, then The Amazing Star-Spider is for you! And if this fic is for you – seek help, please.

Episode 352 - Razor versus Warrior Nun Areala - Faith

Episode 352: Razor versus Warrior Nun Areala - Faith

Nineties comics were a bit silly, weren’t they?

Not to be confused with Areala versus Razor, this is an entirely different and yet still near identical book. Straight from the horrors of nineties bad girl comics, we have a tale of... well, not much really. There’s some demons, and there’s a pair of ludicrously dressed, impossibly proportioned women who fight them in festivals of blood-soaked cartoonish violence. Oh, and they also fight each other, which is basically a given, what with the ‘versus’ part of the title. Throw in the Generic Anime Villain’s guide to dating and you basically have a wrap. So get your Sword of Catholic Guilt, stab a demon through the eyeballs and kick over a gravestone for the generic crossover action of Razor versus Areala.

Episode 351 - Gates of Oblivion

Episode 351: Gates of Oblivion

Asuka insisted they swing by to mock Hiditio, and frankly, who can blame them?

What would you get if you took all the Tom Dyron out of DELTA Invasion? The answer would be this fic, the final part of the Dyron Cycle. Having decided that DELTA no longer fit his “vision” for Evangelion, the author pulled it and replaced it with this reinterpretation that features ninety percent more literacy but otherwise is exactly the same. Okay, that’s not entirely true. True, it does have an odious new character (not the one you’re thinking of), an Invador Alert and a nonsensical fight scene. But it does lack a lot of the other classic Dyronesque elements such as dead Matts, Italian restaurant menus, dripping homoeroticism and any hint of entertainment. What does that leave us with? Read on and be surprised, dear reader as the last chapter of the Dyron legacy unfolds… and then crashes and burns on the first lap.
