Name that toon! Or: Yes, I'm back, quit bitching about it.

Post by The Scarlet Scorpion »

Some years ago, the Sci-fi Channel, an American cable network, had a programming block every Saturday call "Saturdy Anime". My Dad told me never to watch it, because they tended to show stuff with major-league adult content, stuff that you probably wouldn't even be able to show on "Adult Swim" (they commercials always had a parental advisory on them. The whole thing was a subversive twist on the old "Saturday Morning Cartoons" that have been a mainstay of televsion brodacts for decades.

AS stated before, my Dad was against me seeing anything on it, so I was quite surpriesed to one day seeing him watching -- and enjoying an installment of the series. After hiding in the other room, watching his reactions (something I always did when someone was watching something for "grown-ups"), I eventually wandered in and ask him what it was. If I remember correctly (and I usually do), it was set in medieval Japan, and featured a group of kids who had built a gigantic clockwork robot for their village's festival. They then proceded to fight a mad scientist with his own giant robot... made of bricks. The vilain blasted the kid's robot with cannons, and the kids fought back with fireworks. It was pretty sweet.

The film had a sense of humor, and may have been complied from an O.V.A. or T.V. series. That's all I know about it.

So... could anyone solve a mystery and tell me what the hell this flick was called?

P.S.: Okay Grant, pat yourself on the back: yes, I'm bisexual (I came out to my parents last week). Just thought you should know, and if you shouldn't, I really don't care. :P

I think I speak on behalf of everyone when I say that I didn't need or want to know that.

There is no such thing as a "bisexual." You either suck dicks or you don't. It's that simple.

I'm a furry, but you don't see me posting random arts about this. That's what Live Journals are for.

Chris is right. It's one way or the other, period. Either you like to suck dicks, or you're not allowed to come into his bedroom after 7 pm.

Ah, Saturday Anime. First movie I saw on that was Tenchi Muyo In Love, and has since remained one of my favorite anime movies ever. Second movie I saw was LILY C.A.T., which, thankfully, was shown one time and one time only.

They did edit a few films shown on there, though. I seem to recall watching Fatal Fury: The Motion Picture and if a shot had Mai with a little too much cleavage they'd blur it.

Never liked Robot Carnival. Always seemed too boring and disjointed to me back then.

"bisexuality" has become more of a trend than an orientation anyway.

I miss Scifi showing stuff like Gall Force, Night of the Cockroaches, Akira, Robot Carnival, Tenchi Muyo in Love, and Rojin Z. *sigh*

You are not manifesting a spirit of wisdom.

If you like penis, that's fine. However, I honestly don't give a rat's ass. I'm sure that the Gay-Straight Alliance would be happy to hear you out, however.

But for the time being, you can go take your love of cock and shove it up your ass.

Honestly? I think he's a bit gay for Grant. He's sort of like America's answer to j-man, like Heart was America's answer to Led Zeppelin.

Is this a recurring thing? Off to the old topics...
