Well, I finally got around to watching Toonami at the house of a friend of mine that still pays for cable and holy shit, was that a huge nostalgia trip. It almost makes me want to go back to paying for cable, rather than just watching everything through DVDs or the internet.

Well that's straight wrong; the militaristic aspects were performed convincingly, dialogue was solid (and had a subtle callback to season 1), plot played out well, Batou's lecture to the guy at the end was good stuff, the Major's chewing out of Batou was also a solid moment that felt like a legit scene between a boss and her subordinate, and the twist at the end was foreshadowed in a subtle, yet slick, manner (the girl's atrocious handwriting).


How did she use the computer if she was blind? The dad's message was an audio file, granted, but how was she able to open it in the first place?

Fuck that "chance" bullshit, you ain't seen nothing but a stand-alone episode having nothing to do with the overall plot (which is, by the way, fan-fucking-tastic). Know your role.


A "stand-alone" episode? I'd think that all of the episodes would be stand-alones. wink.gif

HAAAAAWWW HA HA HA HA HAWWWWWWW puns.

Do you remember the line in MST3k's theme ♪If you're wondering how he eats and breaths, and other science facts (la la1)/Repeat to yourself "it's just a show, I should really just relax!"♪? Were I you, I'd apply that mantra. If you think too deep about any work of media, you're bound to find some holes. Just keep your willing suspension of disbelief on and you should be fine.

That was a comedy. This is a drama. Silly plotholes and inexplicable elements can be ignored based on the nature of a show. MST3K is one of those shows. Ghost in the Shell is a serious drama, and I think that the rules apply a little more strictly to a serious drama than they do to a show about a man and some robots making fun of bad movies.

It's not that I didn't like the episode, I just wasn't really wowed by it. I'm sure I'll be more impressed over the next couple of weeks. It took me a little while to get into Baccano! too, and nowadays, I consider that the best damn thing ever.

I was suggesting that you adopt the concept. I'm not saying that the shows are remotely similar: I'm just saying that you shouldn't over-think it unless it's an obvious, story-impacting holw.

Haven't been watching this show long, have you?

And Nihilistic One, the MST3K mantra does not apply with plotholes and you're dumb for bringing it up in the face of what seems like a plothole (but isn't because someone obviously hasn't been watching this show very long).

The future of GITS is a very "jacked into the system" kind of future (hence all those delightful circular status screens in Batou's POV). Considering most electronics can be activated with a good old wire from the neck, a blind girl accessing her email is hardly out of the ordinary. And considering that they've been developing computers for blind people in real world modern day...

As much as I love seeing Toonami back, I just see it getting canceled at some point. Either by lack of ratings, or corporate just pulling the plug on it for whatever reason. I hope that it doesn't come to that, because it has potential to regain it's former glory.

You've activated my trap card, Thread Necromancy!

So who's enjoying HD Bebop!? NOT FOR LONG, BITCHES!

Damn shame this is happening, but I kind of see why. It's hard to catch the later shows (which are all the good one's) and even then it's just reruns of things I already seen.

Hopefully things straighten out for them and we can get back more glorious HD Cowboy Bebop.

Well, it's confirmed that Kill La Kill is going to air. I'll probably give it a look just to say I've seen it.

Have you ever played Shadow the Hedgehog?
Cause really, that is what Kill la Kill in parts boiled down to. Of course only if it was done by some hyperactive Little shit of a kid who did not get slapped enough

Only thing that can save this block now is a potential Jojo dub. KLK (and its decent-ish dub) won't single-handedly save Toonami from diminishing ratings.

Hey, that's insulting to a hyperactive kid.
At least hyperactive kid will eventually mellowed out. Trigger? Doubt that shits gonna happen

I played Shadow the Hedgehog once. I didn't make it past the first level, it was that bad. Like I said, I'll see the series once and if it's that bad (and it probably will be), I'll never watch it again.

@Greetings: Have the Toonami ratings been dropping before or after Space Dandy and Attack On Titan completed their runs?
