Hawaii Five-O, Dirty Pair TV

Really hurts me to have to vote out Pink Panther, but H50 is just too much

(They've done studies, you know. 60% of the time, it works every time.)

Fukai Mori was the last thing on my list but I figured that meant it was getting cut anyway which is why I didn't bother pressing the issue.

Anyway. Voting.



(I almost wish I liked the Wakfu song more so I could just put up a picture of peter sellers as clouseau)

Why is it that the OP puts together two beloved theme songs for one match, and two theme songs I have no great emotional attachment to in the other? This would have been so much easier if it had been Hawaii 5-0/Dirty Pair and Pink Panther/Wakfu.

Anyway. Pink Panther and Dirty Pair. I enjoy the Hawaii 5-0 theme but prefer the one they used in the actual show. Pink Panther is a show I spent much of my early childhood watching (until it got purged for Thundercats and Voltron...), and I dig Henry Mancini, so I gotta go with that.

That's been a lot of my experience so far. I actually think it's fine though, should give us more diversity of picks towards the end. We can only hope all of BEAT's ATHF picks get quarantined in a cage deathmatch where only one can survive.

The Pink Panther takes the lead with it's iconic theme in a close race, while Dirty Pair does what they do best, overkill, and creams the competition 12-3. They move on to the next round!

First on tonight's card is Wendell with Bernard Hoffer's SilverHawks, the cartoon where ThunderCats are birds or something. Mostly I remember the big robot bat toy I owned as a kid. That shit was awesome. Anyway, it's cool animation and truly 80's tune is up against Daikaiju's pick "Discotheque" by Nana Mizuki, the end theme to Rosairo + Vampite Capu. Really the only thing I know about that is it has vampires, math and Rosario Dawson. I think. Also, J-pop dancin'.



Next up, BEAT's first Aqua pick: the super chill Aqua TV Show Show by Flying Lotus and Thundercat. To put things in perspective, this was the third name change and 10th season for the show with one more after that. And it came out in 2013, even! Counter to this is my pick, the bubbly and sweet "Dramatic" by Yuki for the neat intro to the Japanese slice of life series Honey & Clover, about the life and times of art school students. Which reminds me, is March Comes In Like a Lion over yet? Because I want to watch it.



Voting Closes 12 PM Atlantic Daylight Time tomorrow.

Why did the Honey and Clover intro have a child’s pee-soaked underwear? No thanks, anime.

Silverhawks and BEAT.

The Honey & Clover OP youtube link doesn't work for me in the US, so here's a dailymotion link that worked for me. I just need to say holy shit that space cowboy on his guitar tho!


SilverHawks & ATHF

You just don't get Japanese culture. Try not to be so close minded! This is a joke please don't kill me. It also appears to be food? Crafted to look like that?

It's "over" in the sense that the 2nd season finished airing, so if you want to binge it you can. However it is not "over" in that the show still has a butt-load of manga to adapt still, and SHAFT seems to be doing the MHA model of make like two cours, then go away for a while to give the production some room to breathe. However, it might be "over" in that I dunno if this passion project for SHAFT makes them enough money to continue pursuing it. I'd still give it a look though if it interests you. The 2nd season leaves off at a good enough place.

I hate that I keep missing these, but on the other hand, this spares me the anguish of choosing between Dirty Pair and Wakfu.

Silverhawks and Aqua Teen. The Clover thing was blocked on copyright grounds, but I wasn't eager to experience it anyway.

For the record: The vast majority of the Honey & Clover OP is pretty inoffensive and simple. It’s just a bunch of stop motion animated food made to look like stuff. The panties in question looks like it’s some kind of cake maybe? Subtract the bizarre/offputting two seconds that’s on screen, it’s kinda neat, novel, quaintly abstract OP. It’s honestly a lot more suited to be a show’s ED in a lot of ways.

I would have enjoyed the final crab leg shot for its creativity, if I wasn’t still reeling from the EDIBLE CHILD’S UNDERWEAR SOILED WITH VISCOUS “URINE”.

Look what that damn vid made me type!!
