How's it going my gumdrops? Last night, I read on Anime News Network, that Adult Swim will be premiering Michiko & Hatchin on June 20th. Akame ga KILL will be premiering August 8th.

Akame ga KILL Trailer [English Sub] (2014)
I have never watched any of these Anime titles. I only know that Akame ga KILL is a Shonen Action Anime with Horror elements to it, whereas Michiko & Hatchin is an Action Crime Anime. I am uncertain if it's another Seinen title, but it looks like it. Regardless, both shows are Action Anime. I will have to try watching them both, before Adult Swim premieres them this summer.
The fact that I haven't watched any more recent acquisitions on Adult Swim within these last few months is surprising. Throughout my 20's, I used to spend my nights watching animation on the network. Last year was the most that I watched Adult Swim for Anime, since 2008.
After Hellsing Ultimate ended earlier this year, I sometimes watched reruns of Naruto Shippuden. The current arc being aired on Adult Swm is boring. Honestly, the original Naruto series was more enjoyable to watch. That was until the entire franchise began revolving around Sasuke Uchiha. As much as I love the name Sasuke, he is such an annoying, bratty, Emo Anime character.
As soon as his older brother, Itachi Uchiha made his appearance in the series, I was so happy. Watching him kick Sasuke's ass made me laugh sinisterly. For us Itachi fans, it was such a HUGE disappointment watching the way he died in Naruto Shippuden.The creator just HAD to kill Itachi like all the other Naruto characters with huge fan bases.
I'm seasons behind in watching the more recent episodes of Naruto Shippuden from Japan. The last time I watched it, Orochimaru's double agent (Kabuto) took over his body, after Sasuke killed him and Kabuto began reviving all the dead shinobi. It suddenly felt like I was watching an American soap opera.
You know how those soap opera characters are always supposedly "dead" and suddenly come back to life?
That is what the dead shinobi being revived from the dead seemed like on Naruto Shippuden. The series became really repulsive, when the creator of the Anime and Manga introduced that stupid Killer Bee character. He's supposed to be an 8-tailed Jinchuriki (tailed beast) and a ninja.
The most obnoxious trait about Killer Bee is trying to listen to him rap in Japanese. When I say rap, I mean rather than talking like a normal person (even though he is already abnormal), he raps every time he speaks. Killer Bee is not a real person but I'd love to punch him in the throat because his rapping is so fucking annoying! It's like, "Why not have a nice cup of Shut The Fuck Up?"
Getting back to the topic of both Sasuke and Itachi Uchiha, I mostly enjoyed their brother vs brother fights on Naruto and Naruto Shippuden. My ultimate favorite scenes were watching the way Itachi tortured Sasuke. You are probably saying to yourselves, "That was cold watching how Itachi tortured his little brother and killed their entire clan."
It was really cold watching the flashbacks of how both Itachi and Madara Uchiha massacred their entire clan. I don't know how much the story changed about The Uchihas, since the last time I watched Naruto Shippuden. However, I remember Madara telling Sasuke about their family supposedly being crooked and that he (Madara) and Itachi massacred them.
Well, I might as well utilize this Mercury Retrograde. Since we're on the topic of Itachi and Sasuke Uchiha from the Naruto franchise and because Sasuke always annoyed me, it's only fitting that I share some old scenes. I have scenes from the original Naruto series for today's Cartoon Sunday.
If you watched Naruto when Cartoon Network originally aired it, I'm sure you remember Itachi returning to the Leaf Village for Naruto, while Sasuke poorly strategized how to kill his big brother the double agent. Talk about an epic fail.
Even though Itachi Uchiha is dead in the more recent Naruto Shippuden episodes, I'm still Team Itachi. Yes, I know. I'm a horrible person, aren't I? Anyway, here's Itachi Vs Sasuke Round 1.
