Captain Yesterday: We'll cross that river when we get there

The General: I think it's a bridge...

Captain Yesterday: If you want to use the bridge, go ahead, but I'm swinging over on a vine

The General: This is why I married you!

So, you're a "big box" studio, you're handed one of the biggest anime hits of 2015, and you're asked to do Season 2. People are horrified that you're going to botch it.

Do you:
(1) Put your best people on it, do your best to match the style and flavor that made Season 1 such a hit, accept that some people are going to hate you just because you're different, but try to wow the rest, or...

(2) ...just mail it in with a cheap, by-the-numbers job, since enough people are going to hate you anyway that there's really no point in trying.

JC Staff has obviously taken option (2) with One Punch Man Season 2, and it's depressing. One reviewer just put up a screenshot from Season 1 and a screenshot from Season 2, and said, "Compare the colors." Season 2 is grey and lifeless compared to Season 1.

Having read the story arc of Season 2 in the manga, I like it much better than the story arc of Season 1, because it addresses the elephant in the room: One man, no matter how godlike, cannot be everywhere at once, nor can he protect everyone

Yet so far, there is no life in the anime. Episode 2 was one of my favorite books, as Blizzard's emotional progression through the series is really something that resonates with me. The anime makes her a boring, one-dimensional, throwaway character. I don't care whether I ever see her again. Some of the brilliant translations in the manga ("You're gonna attack with rocks and pebbles? Oh please, no, don't.") get butchered in the anime ("You're attacking with stones? Hmm."). One of the most powerful scenes in the manga is in this book, and is just utterly failed in the anime.

In short, Book 9 of the manga includes a lot of lighthearted stuff that lets you see a bit of Saitama's humanity. Episode 2 of the anime tries to focus on the action, which is in the background in the manga.

Another episode of Season 2 down, another serious disappointment.

EDIT: And for those of you who are getting the original manga instead of the compiled versions I'm getting,...

hello, I would like to introduce you to Mobile Suit Gundam...

All of us can clearly see why she married you...

So I'm kinda stunned at the moment. I have a neighbor upstairs above me who I think is a pretty cool guy, but a lot of people say he is inconsiderate, as he plays music super loud in the middle of the night and watches porn with the volume so high up you can here it outside etc.

I'm half deaf anyway so I never cared, as I also play my tv loud to hear it and he has never complained.

Anyway I got a knock on the door this morning and it was him and he cheerfully handed me an envelope of money. A year or two ago he asked if he could borrow $200 and I gave it to him but he never paid it back. He thanked me for being nice to him and never calling the cops on him for the noise or even asking for him to pay me back. I was like it's all good thanks for getting around to it.

I looked in the envelop and it was $2,000!!!

He said it was interest for being nice to him.

Holy crap, apparently being nice to people really does pay off sometimes.

I'm pleasantly surprised. Usually what happens in my case is I never see the money again, except I'm quite the nag because once we have an agreement I would want you to follow it through so I'd probably hound the poor sap day and night until he coughed up the dosh. I could not accept excess payment though, its part of my programming.


Clocking out. Good night, everyone.

I went to high school with a guy who is now a Buzzfeed writer. He once offered me $20 to hang out with me and his friends. I took it, but immediately regretted it. Turns out it was clique bait.


My son asked me "Dad, what's a Greek urn?" I said "About 20 drachmas a day."

My second girlfriend taught me an important lesson: Never get into a relationship with a tennis player. Love means nothing to them.

puts hand up to ear WHAT? I cant hear you over all this porn!

Also as a side note, pornhub has put up a bunch of beesexual videos that literally are bees having sex. For every video watched they will donate to a bee charity. Because we need bees to, you know, live.

That's and odd thing but I do support bees... Maybe I can just have it on in the background.

I blame Jerry Seinfeld.

I'm feeling a little buzzed from his jokes. They're as sweet as honey to my eyes. Maybee they'll help pollinate some other people's sense of humor.

Falling into a pool? That's diving. Also almost a sport.

Almost only counts in horseshoes or hand grenades, both of which would be more entertaining to watch then golf, bowling, or tennis.

Corn hole was our best selling game at Toys R Us, even more popular then Flip cup, and we're in a college town.

Now if only they could organize a National Milk Maid Championship then Freehold would probably move there immediately.

Every county holds a competition for this very thing every year to see who parades around for June dairy month and then the fairs the whole rest of the summer.


I forget that Wisconsin has even less going on then even TN.

Less going on!?! Did you not hear about the cornholing, fairs, and milkmaids.

What else do you want?

You wanna throw some s&~&? We have the national cow chip throwing championship in Sauk City.

You want to eat mass produced pancakes and scrambled eggs in a barn with five hundred other people? Breakfast On The Farm!

Cheese your thing? We have Cheese Days for that!

Drunkenly shooting fruit off a kid's head? Visit any rural community on a Saturday night, or if you just want to see a historical recreation of one, then the William Tell festival in New Glarus is the place to go.
