JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders 33 – Child Beating

Chasing around and trying to drown a naked child is one thing, but imitating Kakyoin during a Shining parody? Alessi, you have gone TOO FAR. This episode definitely works better for me than the previous episode. Alessi is more of a threat along with still being a giant creep, so there’s at least some danger […]

Gundam Build Fighters Try 21 – that happened

That was … something. While I don’t want to be so dismissive right off the bat, this is the Internet, so I’ll start with the negative. I was excited for this battle, because theoretically it’s two heavyweights just launching bombs at each other from the start, and it works on that level to an extent. […]

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders 32 – JoJo Babies

There are so many, many things wrong with this image. Much like Mariah’s first episode, this is largely a comedy setup episode to the real fight in the next episode, but I wasn’t feeling it quite as much. The scenario is definitely amusing: I’m certain everyone scrambled to make the “Finally Polnareff is in a […]

Gundam Build Fighters Try 20 – The Moral Is to Be Friends With Your Toys

Remember, kids, if you have a beloved friend who will repair a gunpla whenever you break it, then you too will have a super powerful gunpla that will bail you out when you get close to losing. Also, it must have been constructed by one of the best gunpla builders of the decade. A minor […]

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders 31 – Pincer? I Barely Know Her!

I get that a lot … :( Mariah’s Stand would be so much fun to have. It’s activated in a silly, convoluted way, but you can fool people if you’re smart enough (like Mariah did with Avdol) or if they’re dumb enough (like Mariah did with Joseph), and if it’s the latter, then you’re already […]

Gundam Build Fighters Try 19 – Hand-to-Hand Robot

I’m enjoying this run of “You might have caught up to me … EXCEPT NOT, ACTUALLY!!!!!!” battles. The structure could get repetitive after a while if the “second forms” or whatever aren’t clever or interesting enough to carry the battle, but it’s at least more interesting than curbstomp battles where the result is never in […]

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders 30 – OH. MY. GOOOOOOOOOOOD.

I enjoy that the plot of this episode hinges upon Joseph Joestar being a big enough dummy to not just touch an electrical outlet on a rock, but to touch it with his metal prosthetic hand. He may as well have jammed a fork in there and twisted it around. This is an interesting battle […]

Gundam Build Fighters Try 18 – Winning Road

Oh hey, it’s the episode where I stop complaining about how Build Fighters Try is using Fumina, because SHE’S GETTING REAL Y’ALL!!!!!!!!! Seriously have no complaint about this episode. Well, maybe that it’s a bit convenient that China magically shows up with new parts after Sekai pushes his gunpla to the limit (guess Sei was […]
