I'm watching Gatchaman again and, I kid you not, the villain (Berg Katze) had the image of Jesus carved next to faces on Mt. Rushmore. This was, of course, to house his newest weapon, the giant Lava Jesus Robot that terrorizes cities.

Seriously. The Lava Jesus Robot emerges from volcanoes to rampage nearby cities.

If I'm watching an anime, I kind of expect the voice actors to pronounce "karaoke" correctly. I mean, really!

Gods, I love this show.

I'm watching the new series of Gatchaman right now, subtitled Crowds. It's a very, very different beast than it's predecessor, with an odd art style, strange characters, and inexplicable events all of which are peppered with enough call-backs to keep you just interested enough to keep watching. Berg Katzen is here, as is a new version of Galactor, along with a Gatchaman team, logo, and transformation sequence. I don't know that I *like* it just yet, but I'll watch it.

In the meantime, I'm going to tuck the lyrics of the main theme under a cut as it's both a touch lengthy and complete gibberish. (I honestly feel like it out gibbers my Gibber tag entries!)

"Pedro, there's something I must tell you. I am a robot with a heart of steel and wires."
"Maria, I, too, must confess something. I am an alien; I don't even have a heart."
~futuristic Latin drama, shown on Technotise: Edit & I

Gotta admit, I'd probably watch that show.

1 hour of TSD, 1 hour of Kung Fu, and a 3 mile jog were completed today. Yes, I *am* tired, thanks.

Just finished watching an anime film on Hulu called King of Thorns. Interesting, not without its flaws, gory at times, and a few nice twists to round it out. Not fantastic, but above average. Wikipedia says it's a watered-down deviation from the several volume anime, but that's to be expected when compressing a convoluted story into a 1.5 hour time frame.

...[livejournal.com profile] toosuto tipped me off to this stupendously awesome anime-inspired DC heroes redesign.


(The following image is one of the examples from the website.)

Clearly influenced by Gatchaman, this Batman dons the sleek Science Ninja outfit as does Robin shown in a later image.

*Moved to day shift as the nights weren't productive enough to justify a whole other shift. Well, at least they kept us. Honestly, I'm looking forward to interacting with the entire dev team to get a better feel on the project.

*I can't remember the last time I was up before 7 AM. Ugh.

*If things continue as such at work, I'll finally be able to re-enroll at the Kung Fu school. That black belt ain't earnin' itself.

*Oh, and a regular schedule means that I can resume my weekly Japanese meals. I made a hearty curry with tempura chicken for the guys last night. Nom.

*On the gaming front, I've been playing a handful of smaller titles. Indie titles like Breath of Death VII, Cthulhu Saves the World, and Deep Deep Dungeon have passed the time nicely, while the Xbox 360's Child of Eden was a joy to play, watch, and listen. Oh, and the XBLA has the multi-player Castlevania: Harmony of Despair to play around with, though it relies a bit heavily on grinding for better gear.

*I was talked into watching Naruto, and I'm thoroughly unimpressed. The kids are obnoxious and unlikeable, the head ninjas are completely irresponsible, the character design is highly questionable, and I'm already worn out on the juvenile, over-the-top antics. I'm about 10 episodes in and I've only made this far because it happens to be something I can watch during my morning rituals of email and breakfast.

It's nearing 1 AM and I'm perusing my Netflix options for stuff to pass the time. I've stumbled across this early 90's anime series called Virus: Virus Hunter Serge.

Oh. Oh my. It's sooo 90's anime.
