Ass Dancing His Way Into Our Hearts

Good evening Painkillers, welcome to another addition of Anime Wednesday. Today I have something special for you. As some of you may know, I am a father, and many of you out there are parents as well. I can truly say that I am so happy that none of my kids act like the little bastard that I’m going to talk about, and I hope that your kids don’t act like this kid as well. So, let’s dive right into possibly the series with the most amount of episodes so far, here is Shin Chan. Now before I begin, yes I know that this series has many more episodes, then the 76 that I’m talking about, but I’m focusing on the first three seasons of the show, since those are the ones that originally came to the states. Guess that all they could bring over without getting heat from parent advocate groups. Also, I using the names that I know from the English dubbed version that hit America, so if there is a name that you don’t recognize, it might be because of a name change in your area.

Shin Chan follows the journey of the Nohara family, but mostly the five year old boy of the family. There is Mitzi, the mom, Hiro the father, Hima the baby, Whitey the dog, and of course Shin. Mitzi is 29 years old and a stay at home mom. She takes care of the house and her family. Unfortunately, she is usually the butt of Shin’s fat and old jokes. Hiro is 35 years old and is your basic salaryman from Japan. He is a loving father, and devoted husband. Like most couples he and Mitzi do have their minor conflicts, even though Mitzi is known to throw down here and there to get her way. Hiro loves nothing more than to come home after work, and have a cold beer. Hima is pretty much a baby in the show, but like most babies in other animated shows, she is way smarter than she should be. She has an attraction to shiny objects, and knows how to turn on the charm when needed. Whitey is the loyal fluffy white pup of the family. He is a beloved member of the family, but unfortunately he is neglected, thanks to the family being forgetful. He is very intelligent, so he is capable of taking care of himself. Finally, there is Shin……… Oh boy!

Shin is the 5 year old badass of the family. He has a smart mouth, and loves to show his ass, and I literally do mean that, hence the title of this article. Also, let’s not forget about Mr Elephant, yes we are talking about Shin’s cock and balls. He likes to whip it out as well. Ugh, thank God that this show aired on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim lineup, and is currently on Hulu, otherwise people might think that I was writing about kiddie porn or something.

Anyway, Shin goes to an American style school, and the kids that are in his class are no better than Shin, well at least they keep their clothes on. His friends consist of a girl from a rich family that is madly in love with Shin. A girl which seems to comes from an abusive family, that take out her frustration on a stuffed bunny that she keeps in her…… nope, not saying it! If you saw the show before you already know, if not just watch and see for yourself. As for the the boys, one is extremely timid, one is mentally challenged, and usually has snot hanging from his non existing nose, and the other is a conservative that comes from a middle class family. I really don’t know how this school stays open, with the crap that comes out of the kids mouths, and with the teachers and principle being completely out there.

When Shin is not at school, hanging out with his friends playing odd games, you can find him at home watching his favorite superhero show Action Bastard. Yes, you read that right, along with his young side kick Lollipop they tell bad sex puns, and take on super villains such as The Deflowerer. No wonder why the kids in this show are all fucked up, Action Bastard is the or one of the top shows on TV. Shin also spends his time hitting on older women that he finds attractive, especially one of his mother’s friends.

This show is funny and fucked up! All the characters bring something to the table that will make you laugh, and wonder what the writers were thinking. I know that the show is still going on in Japan, and I wish that the States get all of episodes one day. So wish that we could have gotten the espoides from the beginning, and not somewhere in the middle like we currently have. Like I said earlier, the show is currently on Hulu if you want to check it out, but do yourself a favor and not watch it around small children. Otherwise, they may start acting like Shin, and no one wants that. If you do, you will be spending most espoides explaining why Shin is wrong for doing that, and why they shouldn’t do what they just saw. Until next time Painkillers!

No Master Needed!!!

Good morning to all my Painkillers, and welcome to another addition of Anime Wednesday. Today’s addition is a good one. Many of us have grew up on one or maybe even all of the different Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Whether it was the original series from the 80’s, or even the latest series that aired on Nickelodeon, we all sat down and enjoy the show. The same can be said for Power Rangers. The franchise has been around for 25 years, and still going strong with different themes almost every season. So what does this tell us? That we like shows that the heroes are martial artists that wear different color outfits, for quickly telling the heroes apart, that take on and defeat evil within 30 minutes. So you may be asking yourself, what does all of this has to do with the today’s anime series? Well this show follows the same outline like the TMNT and the Rangers, but many of you might have easily looked pasted this show growing up. Well then, let’s get into it, it’s time to talk about Ronin Warriors.

This 39 episode show debuted in Japan in 1988, but didn’t land on Cartoon Network in the US until 1999 on their Toonami lineup. Trying to explain the plot of the show can be a bit umm, windbagish, so I’m going to try my best to give you the cliff notes. A demon named Talpa ruled the human world, until a warrior mage and his loyal white tiger defeated him. The mage knew that Talpa was too powerful to be truly defeated, and might return, so his splits Talpa’s armor into nine different armors, and gave them to nine different families to protect. He was right, cause about 600 years later Talpa returned. He found found four of them, and turned those weak hearted men to his army. The remaining five families the men dawn the armor and come together to take down Talpa.

Our five heroes are Ryo Sanada, Sage Date, Cye Mouri, Kento Rei Fang, and Rowen Hashiba. Ryo Sanada is the leader of the group. He fights along side a large white tiger named White Blaze. Sage is a master swordsman and is the noblest of all the Ronin. Cye is a quiet warrior, and the calmest. Kento is the strongest of the warriors. He also tends to be hotheaded and rushes into battle. (Damn, that sounds familiar!) Finally there is Rowen, and he is the smartest of the Ronin. (That also sounds familiar)

Normally this would be the part, where I tell you how good the show is, where you can find it, and how you should see it as soon as possible. OK, so yeah this is a damn good show, that’s why I’m writing about it. Yes you should go find the show, and experience it for yourself. Unfortunately, I can’t give you a site or an app to see this show. I searched and searched the apps that I use, and the sites that I hit up, but the apps didn’t have it, and the sites didn’t have all of the episodes. The best that I can tell you, is to watch it on YouTube. Someone did put the whole series up, but it’s a crappy quality, guess to avoid copyright infringement. If you guys know where we could find a better copy of the show, please share with us in the comments below. Let’s see how many people comment a link to an online shop to buy the DVD /Blu-ray set. Lol. Until next time Painkillers.

Girl With The Living Sheath

Good morning Painkillers, and welcome to another addition of Anime Wednesday. Today I have a treat for you, but first a few questions. What would you do if you live in a world, where dueling with swords was still a thing? What if you had a special sword, that was drawn from a living sheath? How would you treat this living sheath? Well maybe this anime will answer some questions, so let’s dive into Revolutionary Girl Utena.

The show starts off following the main character, Utena Tenjou. At a young age, she was impressed by a very kind prince, that she decided to become a prince herself. Now as a teenager, she attends the Ohtori Academy. She is most known in the school, as a tomboy, since she doesn’t wear the normal female uniform, but a uniform that looks more masculine. While at the school she meets fellow classmate Anthy Himemiya. She is currently in an abusive relationship with another classmate. Determined to be like the prince she meet years ago, and to defend Anthy’s honor, Utena challenges Anthy’s boyfriend, and beats him in a sword duel.

Utena didn’t know and didn’t understand at the time that beating him in a duel, meant that Anthy now belonged to her. Anthy is known as the Rose Bride. She holds a special sword that is wielded by the person she is “engaged” to. Utena must now enter duel after duel to not only protect Anthy from people that want to hurt her, but to also keep the power that she has safe.

This 39 espoide series is a true classic. The show goes through four different story arcs, which is very odd for a series this short, but not only does this show pulls it off, they do it really well. The first arc sets up the relationship between Utena and Anthy, so by the time the fourth arc comes in at the end, makes what happens a complete surprise. The way the duels are set up are really interesting, since most of the time we are used to seeing/hearing duels to the death, unless its a card game. This is definitely a must watch show, which I rewatched recently on an app called Tubi TV. It’s free, so you have to watch some ads, but this show is worth it. Until next time Painkillers.

‘BMF’ From The Black And White Era

Good evening Leaguers and Painkillers, and welcome to another addition of Anime Wednesday. There has been a lot of talk about mecha and giant robots here on Anime Wednesday, and today we will be doing the same. This time we are taken back to the age of black and white, and odd angles. Let’s jump into Gigantor!

Now before I even start, there is a rumor about this show that I don’t know if it’s true or not, but I rather just clear the air about it, since some readers may know about it. The rumor is that Gigantor was created as an anti American cartoon, and had to be seriously edited before it hit the States and the rest of the world. Now this may be true, since this was created right after World War II, and all of Japan was probably still pissed about America dropping two nukes on them, and losing the war. It also makes sense that it says that Gigantor was created to be a weapon, but was reprogrammed to now be a guardian of peace. Again I have no idea if this is true or not, but it does seem like a very interesting discussion to have. If you know any info about if this is true or not, or just want to share your thoughts, leave a comment down below.

The show is set in the year 2000, and follows a 12 year old boy name Jimmy Sparks. His father is the creator of Gigantor. Jimmy is the one that actually controllers Gigantor with a special remote control. That can be a bad thing, since whoever has the remote, controls Gigantor. Together, Jimmy and Gigantor travel around the world fighting crime, and other forces of evil.

This show may seem a bit odd for someone that has grew up on more mondern cartoons and animes, but trust me it’s a odd show no matter what. You can clearly see how far drawing styles have come from the 50s-60s up to now. I still don’t get some of the crazy camera angles, it’s like the animation team was drunk while drawing some of shows. I don’t want to even get into the the voice acting. If you saw any of the old Godzilla or martial arts movies from the 80s you already know how it is. Overall this is a good show, and I definitely recommend everyone should try to watch this. It’s currently only Hulu now.

Can Love Truly Conquer All?

Good morning Painkillers, and welcome to a very special Anime Wednesday. Today here in the States, and a few other places around the world, we are celebrating Valentine’s Day. So, on this day of love, I must ask a few questions. Can love truly blossom anywhere? Even on the battlefield? Even if the people are on opposing sides? Well, lucky for you guys, you don’t have to answer those questions, since there is an anime out there that might answer those questions for us. So sit back, strap in, and let’s watch Mobile Suit Gundam: The 8th MS Team.

The show takes place in Universal Century 0079, and if that sounds familiar, welcome fellow Gundam fans, thanks for reading my past post, or both. Anyway, on his way to Earth, Earth Federation solider Ensing Shiro Amada incounters a skirmish between Federation and Zeon mobile suits, and goes out to help. While out there, he ends up getting stranded with Aina Sahalin, who happens to be a Zeon piolt, who is currently working on an experimental mobile armor. They end up helping each other out, and got back to their respective sides.

Finally on Earth, Shiro meets his 8th MS Team. First there is Karen Joshua. She is the second in command, and acts as the teams medic. Up next there is Eledore Massis. He drives the teams support hovertruck. He is not very brave, and has admitted that he is not cut out to be a solider, and only puts himself in danger when it’s needed. Next we have Michel Ninorich. He is Eledor’s partner inside of the hovertruck, serving as the navigator and Gunner. During his downtime, he writes letters to his girlfriend BB. Most of the time, the letters act as narration, to inform viewers what is going on, or to advance the story. The final member of the team is Terry Sanders. He has had a run of bad luck with former teams. Past teams have all been killed by their third mission with, leaving him as the sole survivor, which he has been giving the nickname of “Sanders the Reaper”.

During their time together, the Federation finds out that the woman that Shiro Amada has been talking about, is a Zeon solider, so they throw him in jail for treason. They give him a chance of redemption, he has to take his team deep into Zeon territory and take out a secret base. While there, he runs into Aina Sahalin. What would they decide to do? Will they attack each other? Will they say fuck it, and run away together? Will the Federation or Zeon say fuck it, and decide to just kill them off? Well, you guys just have to watch and see for yourself. I just recently saw this series again on Hulu, and now this is your chance to experience it for yourself. So until next time Painkillers, and have a great Valentine’s Day.

Take Me Down To Paradigm City

Good morning Painkillers. Glad that you all could join me for another Anime Wednesday. Today’s feature, we will be talking about Batman. Wait, this can’t be right! Let’s see, a bad ass that dresses all in black with a bunch of neat toys, a cool sidekick, and a kick ass butler, okay yeah this is Batman. Alright, I’m joking, but it does have a little Batman feel to it, so let’s get into it, since we got some judging to do. Here is The Big O.

Our story opens up in Paradigm City, nicknamed “The City of Amnesia”. About fourth years ago, an “event” happened, where everyone in Paradigm city lost their memories. Here we meet Roger Smith, the top Negotiator in the city. He has a certain set of rules that he does his job by. He also has another special job, he is the piolt of the Megadeus, Big O. Along with his personal assistant Dorothy, and his butler Norman, they protect the city from other Megadeus’ and also try to find out, what happened fourty years ago.

This show is very good. Roger can come off as very straight forward, but many of his interactions with Dorothy are good for a laugh. Especially when she is trying to follow some of his rules. All of characters are well though out, and interact well with other main and side characters. The first 13 espoides run on like most anime or animated shows on TV. The last 13 however, tend to focus more on storylines, and try to answer all questions.

This show was on Cartoon Network back in the day, but now it might be easier to go out and buy it on Blu-ray. If you guys know where to find this show, please let us know. Would like people that never experienced this show before, to have a chance to see it, and definitely want the people that have seen it, to be able to watch it again.
