  2. Re: Gotta get back -Back to the past- SAMURAI JACK- Whachow

    The age gap isn't as important as the experience/mental gap. Ashi was raised as a soldier, and the training left her mentally unfit when Jack snapped her out of the brainwashing. The first time she...

    Watched both Glitch Techs and Harley Quinn.

    Glitch techs is a pretty fun Saturday morning action kinda show. I think it lacks depth and sometimes comes across as 'hello, fellow kids' in its line...
  5. Re: Gotta get back -Back to the past- SAMURAI JACK- Whachow

    Re: Thundercats hooooooooly shit it's pretty good.

    The 2011 theme is a straight adaptation of the main theme Bernard Hoffer provided for the original Thundercats, so he gets a writer credit. The "music by" credit just lists Kevin Kliesch.

    There's some Sakuga in the 'meet the characters' promos, cut with a lot more typical-looking scenes in the show.

    Re: Thundercats hooooooooly shit it's pretty good.

    The first six eps are out on the CN app. The writing is sometimes a little too juvenile, especially on Lion-o, but most of the eps leave me laughing on the balance. Tygra's the best so far as the out...

    Buying Sword/Shield plus its DLC is more expensive than just buying both, say, Sun and Ultra Sun new.
