There's just something inherently funny about an 11 year-old with Asperger's who doesn't even know he has Asperger's yet having to sit through an edited-down version of a mid-00s pop-rock song, shifting and twitching like a ticking time bomb with no one to vent to in the moment because it would be disruptive, all because the people in charge got the name of a song he occasionally listened to wrong. It also shows how out-of-touch people can be about music when they can't even get the names of popular songs right.
VENTO AUREO - Even as someone who's not all that bothered by petplay, Cioccolata and Secco's relationship is kinda freaking me out. (I blame the super-fast "good boys".) Uhh, did you miss the part where he asked Giorno how Narancia was doing? Seriously Trish now's not the time to bitch about this sorta thing. Oh shit, we pocket dimensions now. And also treadclimbers. "My gun, my STAND abilities!" Phasing through solid matter is an underrated ability, even if you're being subjected to it. Maybe they are, it's hard to tell with the whole petplay angle. SHIT COUNT: 2. IT'S MURDERIN' TIME! Goddang gimp acrobatics. No one knows what Bucciarati is thinking. ARI ARI ARI. Eh, I might watch more than just Gotham Knight, but I'm probably still gonna watch just Gotham Knight. One of the worst things that could possibly ever happen to someone is the inability to communicate, especially to oneself. RERO RERO RERO. Oh shit, he really can speak legibly. And so Bucciarati's team escaped... but the worst was yet to come. Mm, so the plot thickens. And it thickens even further. Yeah, I'd hate to check my own pulse and find out I have none too. WHELP. I get that you're a temporary zombie and all now, but you could at least patch up that wound so it doesn't weird anyone out. IT'S RAINING MOLD! As if Giorno saying it outright wasn't enough, here's some senseless civilian deaths to prove further that Cioccolata's evil would make even DIO and Kira feel uncomfortable. Aw shit, Secco's back. I normally don't ship yaoi couples, but damn if this show isn't giving me that temptation with Giorno and Mista. TEAMWORK, FUCK YEAH. Meanwhile, here's a Reddit thread with links to galleries showing off that one time Crunchyroll accidentally posted this episode with subs from the Fruits Basket reboot.
Goddammit Hibana a comment like that is exactly the reason why it's so hard for me to pick a side between either loving or hating you.
BLACK CLOVER - I miss when this show used to have previous-episode recaps before the opening theme. Looks like Gauche and Grey are gonna be out of commission for the episode, that's good news indeed. Goddang illegal immigrant traps making it hard for regular folks to get in. Hey, it was worth the suggestion. The background art in this show is actually kinda decent when it doesn't implement those godawful textures. Yeah, keep choking on that jealousy, Langris. "TOO SOON." Well, that one-note gag's back with a vengeance. And I kinda love that Langris is dragging it through the mud in his best Bakugo impression. [No]. I'm not sure how to respond to Mimosa showing off both her gimmicks in this one sitting, but I know many of you are probably hating it. Calling her "your omnipotence" wouldn't be a stretch. Ah yes, Queen Jamie Marchi of the feminist witch cabal. MINI TIMESKIP, GO! If not one, then two. (Show of hands, who got that one?) The ass-kicking he'll be doing is purely figurative. Damn, I was hoping we'd go a whole scene without Luck bringing up his love of fighting. BE SOFT MY DICK. "What the heck am I watching right now?" A lawlharem anime at its most basic. Calm down with those pelvic thrusts, Finral. Looks nice, if not a little on the generic side. That's... debatably suspicious. This Gaja guy seems awfully chill, especially for a Black Clover character. WATERFALL STAIRCASE. Okay, so that happened. He can do that 'cause he jumps good. They're really hammering in that whole "stage" system, though I like how it's a case where the the numbering order is from the top down. I had a feeling that giant fish lady was an undine. You could say he's below "9th stage" but if he's able to negate magic, wouldn't that make him "0th stage"? This kingdom is way more hostile towards nonaggressive guests than I was expecting. Well shit, there really is a 0th stage, disregard my earlier comment. Man, the Heart Kingdom and its super special awesome ranking system is dildos. I don't know who's doing that sakuga, but I bet it's the guy who did an AMA on the Toonami Reddit last night.
NARUTO SHIPPUDEN - Extreme close-ups! Oh hi Kimimaro, didn't know you were doing stuff already. This episode's really breaking out the anime presentation cliches, aren't they. Nice of you to join us, Hayate, even if it's only in filler. We're in the middle stages already? Okay, so we're flashing back to when he died in the original series. I'd almost completely forgotten that Gaara used the Shukaku to kill Dosu. Likewise, I remember Orochimaru being the one who met with Baki. Kabuto, you absolute madman. Well that made up less of the episode than I expected it to. I had a feeling that purple-haired chick was Hayate's former lover. FUN FACT: Batman in Year One is voiced by the same guy who played Jim Gordon in Gotham, which I think is a pretty cool connection. I wouldn't be surprised if Kabuto fucked a corpse. But wait, didn't Baki survive that encounter? Dang have I got nostalgia for these simply animated fight scenes against this old soundtrack. It's amazing what Naruto can get away with on a PG level. Oh hey, it's Kiba's sister. And then everything happened. "Long story short, I'm part snake now." Why's that guy's face look like Naruto's ID photo? Because Kishi can't write women, that's why she's there. Now cough so she knows it's you. Your mask is stupid and looks like it belongs at either a masquerade or an orgy. KUNAI SWEETGUM NO JUTSU. "Finally, a chance to be useful again!" This ending theme is easily superior in its non-sped-up form.
