How's it going my gumdrops? On Thursday, I read on Anime News Network, that Sasuke Uchiha from Naruto/Naruto Shippuden is getting his own spin-off Manga. I think us remaining American fans of the franchise are asking, "Doesn't the entire series revolve around Sasuke, already? Now, he needs his own spin-off?" I'm always astounded by the fact, that Naruto mostly revolves around Sasuke rather than the main character, Naruto Uzumaki. Some ANNCast podcasters claim, that most American viewers stopped watching the original series because it became too focused on Sasuke.
Sure, maybe if I have my own son, I'll name him, "Sasuke Naozumi" because it sounds cool. Actually, I'm starting to re-think the name because I'm worried about having an emo brat for a son. As I think more about Naozumi being his middle name, I'm worried that he'll be a trumpet-playing crybaby like Naozumi from Kodocha. LMAO! Wow! I think I've been watching too much Anime these last 8 years. Oh well.
Like I said, there's no point for Sasuke to have his own spin-off. He and his tragic childhood have dominated the entire Naruto franchise. Before Naruto Shippuden began, Naruto and his peers were sent on a mission to retrieve Sasuke. I'm seasons behind on Shippuden and I can't remember the last time I watched it in Japanese. The show turned into a bad soap opera. The original Naruto series was more interesting and most of the characters were alive. I'm still pissed that Jiraiyah, Orochimaru, and Itachi Uchiha are dead. To be more specific, I'm still reeling over Orochimaru and Itachi dying and losing to Sasuke's supposed "new powers." That was such a crock. There are no words for that unrealistic storyline. If Naruto's Mangaka wouldn't have killed Itachi, I would've loved watching an epic battle between he and Kabuto. That would've literally been a battle of spy vs spy. LOL! The Mangaka needs to hurry up, make Naruto the Hokage, and end the franchise rather than constantly write spinoffs.
Aside from that, a cyber friend sent me a Toonami link, last night. Jason DeMarco and his staff supposedly want to get Toonami viewers' input about their programming. I messaged that man earlier this year on stalkbook and he never responded. Him not replying doesn't surprise me in the slightest. If DeMarco didn't respond to my other messages in the past, he's most likely not going to respond, now. I'm not some brown nosing cheerleader for his Swimnami lineup. As long as Cartoon Network and Adult Swim continue to blacklist their female audience (and their male audience they claim to cater to), we're all screwed. I may sound pessimistic to some, but I'm being realistic. I'm not re-activiating my Tumblr account (which only lasted a nano second) to beg for shows Adult Swim won't buy.
Tumblr's rules and regulations alone are ridiculous. That's not including the site's layout. Tumblr looks like some headcase created the site and it's like a state of confusion.
Meanwhile, it's Cartoon Sunday. Today, I'm taking a break from Anime. It's been a long time, since I posted anything from The Powerpuff Girls. Speaking of PPG's, I ordered myself a Powerpuff Girls T-shirt 2 months ago, through Cartoon Network's website with my leftover birthday money.
Yes, I know. I'm a 32-year-old woman with a Powerpuff Girls T-shirt. Shortly after I ordered my shirt, I wore it to do a store pick-up of my Tie-Dyed, Route 66 dress from Kmart.
When 1 of the clerks saw my Powerpuff Girls T-shirt, she complimented me and asked where I bought it. I told her, that I ordered it through Cartoon Network's website. Luckily for me, I still look youthful. Had I looked older, people would've assumed my future daughter bought it for me or something. As I quote Guy Sensei from Naruto, "Let the power of youth explode!" LOL!
Anyway, this Cartoon Sunday, I have 1 of my favorite episodes of The Powerpuff Girls. I always enjoy watching those gender battle episodes with The Powerpuff Girls fighting their counterparts. When I say that, I mean The Rowdyruff Boys. I would've posted their introductory episode. However, chances are great YouTube stripped it. This episode of The Powerpuff Girls is when HIM (a.k.a. the devil dressed like a drag queen) revives The Rowdyruff Boys and makes them stronger. I really love the psychology behind this episode. When Mojo Jojo created The Rowdyruff Boys, they exploded from The Powerpuff Girls' kisses. HIM made The Rowdyruff Boys immune to their kisses by making them grow. The moment The Rowdyruff boys feel humiliated or emasculated, they shrink in size. Their sizes represent their egos either being inflated, or deflated. There's always a great hidden message(s) behind each PPG episode. LOL! With that being said, here's "The Boys Are Back In Town" episode from The Powerpuff Girls.
