I've never been more terrified to look up fan reactions to something than me right now with 'Stevani'.

Holy shit that episode was uncomfortable.

Lots of arguments about Stevonnie's pronouns.

I find it funny that overly politically correct people get angsty about proper pronouns when the argument they should be having is to disgender pronouns all together. Gendered pronouns is so last millennium.

You'd love this show LiQuid. It's about a fat kid with a wafro who has a magic beer-gut, and goes on misadventures with gay magic space rocks. All to the rhythm of rad chiptunes.

Oh did I say you'd love it? Sry, you'd probably kill yourself watching it.

Lot's of in fighting with the fans after that episode, because the obvious question of what the heck Stevonnie is was taboo or something. People tried to nail down what to call her, but then people got butthurt. Man, woman, both, neither? Eventually one of the creators responded to a question on twitter asking this and said she was "an experience." That doesn't help when trying to nail down a pronoun though. I just default to she.

I've got two more episodes left in the first season of Steven Universe. I dunno how I feel about this long term plot they keep teasing, I'd rather just have fun/dumb adventures.

Also, steven's girlfriend, out of nowhere was like "itadakimasu" before eating something random. Is she just a giant weeb?? Or is it the show runners that are giant weebs. Either way I face palmed pretty hard that time.

Kenzo is basically begging for people to watch a new show from this season, Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu. He even offered hostage trades to do so. Since I don't know shit about anime, I once again propose a webcomic for my end of the deal, Namesake.

http://namesakecomic.com/comic/the-journey-begins

By my count, there are 858 "pages" so far. This includes any update shown on the homepage, including announcements and art posts when it is on break. That's like 500 pages less than the last webcomic I recommended you. You should be able to burn through it quickly.

As we discussed earlier, it seems that the airing situation with this show is really up in the air at this point, which kind of makes it hard to gauge the length of it for fairness sake. Figure that out, or suggest other, shorter, animes to tack on if necessary and I can see how the trade would stand up then.

Kenzo doesn't keep his hostage promises. He still hasn't watched Babylon 5.

I wasn't trading Gintama, I was trading that Space Dandy show.

Yes, which is why I didn't watch Gintama. How is that hard to comprehend?
