Let’s Go! #99 – Let’s Walk In A Straight Line


We stride boldly forward from one anime season to the next (not to mention straight past the episode I forgot to repost last week) as Summer begins in earnest. For now we get some quality time with continuing faves such as GeGeGe No Kitaro and My Hero Academia while also bidding fond farewell to Megalobox and Golden Kamuy before we're snowed under by all the new stuff. It's thattaway!

Show #167: Summertime Series Catch-Up


We got so distracted cavorting in the seemingly neverending sunshine that we missed quite a couple of TV animation premieres, so it's time for a catch-up!

We enjoy Summer as much as the next person here at SOTSM but even we could use a break from the relentless heat, so what better way to do that than by taking a look at the promising properties that managed to escape our notice for literal months. There's the brutal & bombastic Ballmastrz 9009, the futuristic foolery of Final Space and the resurrection of not one but two beloved comedies with the cartoon continuation of Corner Gas and the raucous return of Rocky & Bullwinkle. It's the hottest stuff from twelve weeks ago!

Show #166: The Lost Issues! - Conceptual Comics Cartoons


Somehow still not entirely sick of superhero media we gorge ourselves on a sample platter of comics cartoons that never were!

Despite our well-aired views on superhero fatigue we arrive on the subject yet again, but perhaps we can move on from it for a while by peering into the alternate universe populated by the animated adaptations we didn't get. Focusing largely on their heyday of the early to mid 90s is this parallel world something we were unjustly denied? Or are some stories better left untold? Questionable accents, historical revisionism, atomic mutation and sexy devil worship are just some of the things the general public just wasn't ready for!

Let’s Go! #96 – Let’s Give a Scorpion a Lift


Not content with throwing punches in the ring, Megalobox beats us all over the head with allegory as Nanbu shows his true colours. Elsewhere Albert lives up to the family name in Lupin The Third, tanukis take over Tokyo in Gegege No Kitaro, Bakugo is bailed out in My Hero Academia and everybody's stuck on each other in Bono Bono. Can YOU spot the moral of the story?
