Neon Genesis Evangelion 1.11 You Are (Not) Alone

So first off, I gotta say: I am absolutely thrilled that Toonami is back on Adult Swim. When I was but a budding nerd back in the early double zeroes, Toonami was the only place to find anime on cable (as far as I knew). And that was where I first saw Outlaw Star, Cowboy […]

Sorry, No New Update

Due to a number of convoluted and uncontrollable circumstances (the most important of which is definitely not “I forgot”), there will be no Letters to Superheroes this week.  I’m going to use this time to build up a buffer of letters instead of just spewing them out at the last second like usual.  So tune in on […]

Dear Man-Thing,

Dear Man-Thing, Sometimes, they make it too easy to make fun of you. “Women cower in fear of the Giant Size Man-Thing!” But seriously, what is up with your powers? You secrete a corrosive acid when you detect fear in others and try to burn it away. Makes for a pretty cool slogan: “Whatever knows […]

Palette of Holding: Baby Chell

Portal is an amazing video game developed by Valve. It is a puzzle game that involves two things: an in-portal and an out-portal; you shoot two different portals and can go in and out them.  It’s a bit difficult to explain, even though I found playing it and picking up the concept easy upon actually […]

I should be very disappointed in myself. This is one of my favorite anime of all time, and I haven’t said anything about it yet. I am shamed. Mushi are creatures that live in a world outside of human perception. Usually small and harmless, the exist in harmony with the earth and the life forces […]
