This week we are looking at some random anime clips from some of my personal favorite shows. Don't worry, as all of these videos are in English audio format (sorry die-hard anime fans. I am a dubber, not a subber. Sorry if I disappoint). The best part about these clips is that you need to know nothing about the show or anything to enjoy them (actually, in order to appreciate one of them, you do need to know about a different series...). If they need some background, I will help you out. Good? Good. Let's get to it.
Sgt. Frog Demo
Sgt. Frog is something I stumbled across a few days ago. Evidently Funimation wants to do the English dub to the popular anime series, and this is a test run. All you need to know is that alien frogs are trying to take over the Earth. Yes, that it all.
Unfortunately, I can only link to it. Boo!
Azumanga Daioh - The Very Short Movie
This is actually the theatrical release of the anime series. It is the crux of the series in under 6 minutes. If you like it, check the rest of the series out!
Lucky Star - Haruhi Cosplay
Ok, this one may require some knowledge of the infamous Haruhi Dance. Lucky Star is an anime that is actually made by the same company that does "Haruhi", so they can get away with this.
This is what I spoofed in the intro. Lucky Channel is a segment that is at the end of every Lucky Star episode, and is totally the best part of the series. Enjoy the first three!
Mahora (Baka) Rangers
From Negima!? is the Baka Rangers (Baka = Idiot in Japanese)!!! These are the five with the lowest scores in Negi's class, and they parody the Power Rangers. What's better than that? Watch it. You will not regret it!
And that concludes week 40 of the Mega Media Monday franchise. Yes, we are 40 weeks in/old, so the one year anniversary is on its way...in about 3 months... I am out of good ideas and would love some input or suggestions, so leave me a comment and I will do my absolute best to fulfill your desires, unless its a "Charlie the Unicorn" suggestions, in which case you can stop with that request. I refuse to let him tarnish the...er...reputation(?) of this series.
So yes, suggest, comment, praise, no flames, and anticipate the next one...well...or maybe not. No, you will. You know it ^.^*. Until then, happy watching!
