    I've been waiting more than a month for a new episode of RRTL to come out! A MONTH!!

    This review was absolutely worth it. Thank you so much...
  • Midgetfajita  - You call that wacky and awesome.
    You should read Yakitate!! Japan.
    It's a story about bread saving the world... and having the ability to bring people to tears and change them into different objects.
  • Redrally  - Nazis on the Moon
    So first Iron Sky, then this? Or is that the other way around? Either way, what's up with fiction using using Nazis hiding on the moon as a set-up right now?

    Actually, the idea of Nazi UFOs and a secret Nazi lunar base have existed since literally the 40's. There existed some people who thought at the time that the US went to the Moon to see this base. People be crazy. (:

    A fellow otaku bud of mine showed me this anime and the moment I heard of it, I was imagining it to be something along the fairly epic lines of Hikaru no Go. Then I saw it. And oh my, exceeding my expectations is an understatement. Especially when Hitler showed up in it. I would call this a guilty pleasure of mine, but that would imply that I feel any sense of shame for loving it.

    Great review as always, Y.

    Iron Sky was second. I still remember when my friend send me link to Iron Sky trailer and asked "Does it remind you of something?".

    Great review. I just love this manga more than anything.

    I also wanted to point out small, funny thing. Here in Eastern Europe Yulia Tymoshenko is quite known figure. Since the beggining of her political carrier till now (she's now imprison and people still wonder - is she really guilty or is it just political arrest). Anyway, when I talk about this manga on conventions, no one seems surprised by her being part of the great team. Everyone recognize her in a minute. Just a funny thing. I also love how subtle this manga were on a Margaret Thatcher desease that prevented her from being part of great team. Only after watching movie about her I realize what's the desease.

    Wait, Gurren Lagann was ruined/taken seriously at some point?
  • DMaster
    Watch JesuOtaku's review of the anime. She clearly was fearing a bit of backlash there.

    Bishounen Hitler. BISHOUNEN. HITLER.

    My god, that...that's just awesome. Cannot even. a;slkfj;ksaldjflasd;flsd; flasdfj;sadlfj

    Nice review, outside USA you do not have to be as mean spirited to satire something.
  • Kir-Tsu  - So this is new to me.

    OK, then. Must read this right NOW!

    All-so it is nice to see that RRTL is keeping up with it current monthly pace of episode releases. Here is hoping for another 12/12 year or better.

    And seeing as it made a brief splash in this episode, I am still hoping that the Mahjong Manga “Saki” will be featured in WMR (or maybe here in RRTL) in the future. Even if reading it will mean going through a sea of disturbing fan-service.

    After Koizumi defeats Super Aryan Hitler on the moon, this manga gets a lot less interesting.
  • TheXell  - Spoilers

    While I'm glad that you're trying to spread the word about LOK, i feel that this vid is a bit spoiler-heavy.

    Then again, the more ridicoulus parts of it were probably what got people interested in the first place.

    We saw a scene from the OVA in anime club and we all loved it. It was hysterical! The manga seems better though. I hope they adapt the whole manga into an anime. That will be a pleasure to see.
  • Sewblon  - Minor spoiler

    My favorite character in this manga is Pope Benedict the XVI, partly because he is the only character to beat Koizumi at Majong and partly because he is the only hero who has a history with the main antagonist.
  • Project_Mars  - yay
    Oh awesome, someone else is finally talking about this amazing series. (convinced me to make an impulse mahjong set buy) I stumbled across it on TVTropes, found it, read it, loved it immensely. While i do agree with Matt G that it is getting a little slow, but I think its going to pick up soonish. Also: everyone involved did their homework. Go look at a real picture of Yulia or Sorenzki. The characters in the manga greatly resemble them.

    I have been waiting on a review for this for a while. Such a f@cking stupid series that everyone has to see it.
    I am annoyed that this didn't make the TGWTG front page.

    I do hope we get a Gurren Lagan review.
