    I got it and also there making a 3rd one its one Keanu isn’t doing the bebop live action

  • Aythya

    As an ex-rat owner, I can confirm rats *will* lick you face. They’re affectionate and social animals! =3

  • Emblyon

    There is a good golf manga, but i don’t think it got an anime release, its called king golf.
    And if you want some comedy with your golf then check out happy Gilmore.

  • Emblyon

    Past the fanservice, gxp wasn’t that bad, I got a few giggles from it, some things were pretty terrible though, jumping from serious to romance to joky to stupid to fanservice.
    It would actually been far better if they cut out the last episode, or at least did something else with it.

  • Kerberous

    If Sean Russell learned how to debate by watching these guys, then it will be a hilarious debate :)

  • Max-Vader

    Yeah, Mikasa is fucking horible. I can’t want to see Cody’s reaction when he gets to the flashback that “explains” why she is so awesome at everything.
    “I only had one job, and that job was to make his points irrelevant. And that’s what I did.”
    Hahahahahahahaha…
    “He has to prove his case, I don’t have to prove my case.”
    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA…
    Also, you actually forgot the name of one of the four main characters.

    As for Watch Doges, all you need to know about it is this picture:

    • Kerberous

      “Also, you actually forgot the name of one of the four main characters.”

      To me, this becomes even funnier when I remember that he completely ignored everything I said about the show, but replied with something like “You just don’t understand !”

      This is a show that’s supposedly near perfect… If you like it so much, how can you forget the name of a main character ?

      • http://www.anime3000.com Sean Russell

        It’s because I suck and Hunter x Hunter is overrated. Now let me get back to running anime3000.com and watching anime that makes me happy.

        • Kerberous

          You’re actually awesome :) It’s just that saying “HxH is bad” seems to be your trigger warning.

          • http://www.anime3000.com Sean Russell

            Guilty as charged. It’s my “insert show” that gets everyone mad at TOS. But honestly, I’m not too big on the back and forth stuff when it comes to defending the show. I blew my load on the podcast with Max and have moved on.

  • Wakashi

    I think Max will have legitimate points with the HxH debate. The part where sides divide will probably be whether or not a person believes that his points are good enough to say that the series isn’t good or that his points aren’t enough to discredit the entire series. I’m used to this kind of thing after my debate with a friend over Berserk, where she thinks that the rape factor in that series ruins the whole thing. You either get past it or you don’t. Hunter x Hunter isn’t perfect obviously, but whether its good points out-weighs its bad points (or vise versa) all comes down to preference. I see a lot of reasons why people would make fun of it, and there’s plenty of reasons why I like the show over those faults.

    • Cody Baier

      Are you a genie cleaning his house? ‘Cause that was wishy-washy as fuck.

      Also anyone who thinks there mere presence of rape ruins Berserk simply has an objectively wrong opinion.

      • Wakashi

        What are you talking about? Based on what I heard from this podcast, Max tried to complain about things that are either good points to some, or nit picky to others. For example, you intentionally pirating something over some name changes is some of the nerdiest BS I’ve heard in a while. Tell that excuse to the average person and try not to look like a dork.

        “Also anyone who thinks there mere presence of rape ruins Berserk simply has an objectively wrong opinion.”

        I don’t agree with their opinion either, but I can understand why someone would have a problem with that. And calling it “tasteful rape” makes me never want meet you in person.

        • Cody Baier

          Good lord you went into a full pissy bitchfit. And obviously didn’t listen if you’re saying I’m pirating over “some name changes” when i sat there and implicitly explained why I’m ditching Crunchyroll.

          “And calling it “tasteful rape” makes me never want to meet you in person.”

          You’re an idiot. Learn about this thing called storytelling.

          OHMIGAWD DID YOU SEE THAT MOVE CALLED “THE ACCUSED” WHY WOULD THEY HAVE RAPE IN THAT?! I BETS DA MOVIEMAKURS WURR DA SCUMBAGZ

          Clod.

          • Wakashi

            Lol the only one throwing a fit is you dude. All I remember from the podcast was you fussing over names for 20+ minutes, so forgive me for that part being what I got most from your complaining.

            It’s one thing to imply rape, but it’s completely reasonable for someone to be against it being visually depicted in any context. I’m not like my friend who drops the whole series because of it, I’m just saying it’s not necessary to show it.

          • http://www.anime3000.com Sean Russell

            Both of you stop or I’m putting you in time out.

          • Wakashi

            .__.

  • DraculaMarth

    jahmere did you pre-order the special fedora dlc for watch doge

    • Max-Vader

      In case anyone thinks he is kidding: There really is a fedora-DLC for Watch Doges.

      • Wakashi

        nice. I want to get that game…and Ultra SF4….

        There’s just too many games I want this year, and my wallet says no.

    • Jahmere Durham

      Uhhh

  • Max-Vader

    And just by sheer coincidence, RockCock64 aka. the greatest gamer in human history has made pretty much THE video about Watch Doges. Check it out:

      You can never go wrong with The Best Gamers.

    I am so glad that Cody cleared up the whole nude scene in JoJos. It felt very weird to me, and I’m glad Araki has nothing to do with it.

    I’d give you some sort of gift, but you were already given an overly long laughing fit from JD.
