There are few things as amusifying at 4 AM as reading the deep thoughts of teenagers pondering the mystery of their reproductive equipment in an online forum. (In this case, Gaia online.) I wonder if this will still be funny when I wake up tomorrow.
" Ok having a penis is just....I mean it's not bad. But some things can happen and embarrass the hell outta you."
"Penis's and politics dont go together, I'm sure Bill Clinton found that out the hard way."
"Don't blame the penis, the penis is not at fault. It is merely the tool, the brush with which the masterpiece is formed. What comes from it is up to the artist."
I dreamt that it was the near future, and they had made a new game based on Daggerfall. It wasn't a complete Daggerfall but a series of quests and stuff set in the world of Daggerfall. It was a console game with incredibly detailed graphics. And, you could play it in 3D in the holo-arcades. I lived in Rome at the time; the weather was much worse than now, with violent storms and flash floods; the political landscape was also in upheaval, but I did not bother much about that. I came to the holo-arcades each day to play the game. And I met a young girl there, or woman - she must have been around college age - who also came there every day to play. We became friends and it was like we had grown up together, we understood each other so well. Often we would say just a few words, but because we know all the references, those words said so much. It was so peaceful just sitting on a bench together or standing at the bus stop in the rain ... I did not want to wake up from the dream, and so time passed, day after day drifted past us like a river. At brief moments I was aware that I was dreaming, was about to wake up ... but then I turned my back on the world and went back to my dream. Nothing more happened, but it did not need to. Being able to play Daggerfall with my whole body rather than my wrist, and having a gamer girl for a friend - what more could a man wish from life?
This episode is a bit different. Not just because of poorer graphics quality, but because for the first time there is some serious violence. For the first time another Timeless shows up, and tries to protect the sisters from being discovered. But things don't go quite as intended. This is also the first time we meet a character from an earlier episode. Possibly two ... look at the hair.
I notice that they have kept the change in the intro movie, where now all the girls are wiggling their bottom, not just the pre-pubescent one. I suspect they have gotten some serious feedback. The series remain a curious mix of child-TV and ecchi, and while it is not quite pornographic by contemporary standards, I can easily see borderline pedophiles playing some episodes one over and over. (This episode is more adult, though.)
Me, I want to play the music over and over. It is very joyful and energetic, especially the Popotan song (intro) but also the technopunk.
