Toonami Roundup: 9/29/18

Toonami

I honestly enjoy doing the podcast more than I do writing anymore. Why? Because the podcast allows me to just be myself, whereas writing posts involves me using formatting and stuff that takes time away from my real writing, which is writing my book. In any case, here’s a roundup of the week in Toonami.

My Hero Academia episode 20: It’s the World Martial Arts Tournament! Midoriya goes up against a guy who can brainwash him. But at the last second, before Midoriya can step out of the ring, a bunch of mysterious ghosts appear to break him of his spell. Then he goes back and wins easily. Very cliche, but also very entertaining too. Rating (out of four stars): ***

FLCL: Alternative episodes 3-4: Random slice-of-life with Haruko appearing from time to time just to say “Hey, look at me, I’m FLCL!” This can’t end fast enough. Rating: 1/2 a star

Attack on Titan episode 43: More… torture… Seriously, is this entire season just all about torture? Not just torture, but cliche and bad torture. Visit Star Trek: The Next Generation on how to get torture right. This is just disturbing to watch. Rating: 1/2 a star

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable episode 6: Another Stand to defeat, this time for Koichi. We get to find out what Koichi’s Stand can do, as it puts out sound effects that can hurt people, but it doesn’t really work that well since I can’t read Japanese. When are we going to get some direction for this season? Rating: **1/2

Hunter x Hunter episode 113: The narrator has to tell us absolutely everything. The audience is apparently too dumb to understand, so we have to have every last detail told to us by the narrator. Also, Pouf really really doesn’t like Komugi. Rating: *
