Re: Good Anime/Cartoon Parodies

Well, there is the other fact that it seems most American cartoons actually synch up to English. Whereas there's the stereotype that when someone is talking in a Japanese animation, it's never going to match english. Perhaps that aids in the parodies.

Even with a vegan diet, you're killing animals.

I haven't gone to see the movie, but I do remember ridiculing one of my friends when he asked for "No spoilers."

Re: Good Anime/Cartoon Parodies

Good Anime/Cartoon Parodies

So, I've seen a lot of good anime parodies out there; ranging from voice overs and fake dubs to full on flash parodies. One of the more famous examples I can think of is the Juggernaut example that actually made it into the 3rd X-Men movie. Billy Vs Snakeman If you haven't heard of it, it's an enjoy...

Cool games on the interweb redux

Does anyone here play Billy vs Snakeman, and if so, what village are you in?

If you haven't heard of it, it's a fairly enjoyable little browser game. Here's the link.
Billy vs SNAKEMAN

It's somewhat similar to Kingdom of Loathing, though replace some of the wit and charm with anime parodies.
