Tuesday Rumble: September 2nd

Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei: the lost chapters

Class has begun, but Sensei is nowhere to be seen, and in his place is a crudely made replica.

Chiri: What is this?

Kaede: I can’t be taught by a fake! I’ll sue!

[Meru: What a stupid reproduction.]

Sensei appears from nowhere!

Sensei: This is the new, automated Sensei! In an age where humans Continue reading “Tuesday Rumble: September 2nd”

Final Thoughts: Shion no Ou

Is it a woman? is it a man? No, it’s SuperTrap!

Eight years ago, Yasuoka Shion witnessed the bloody murder of her parents- and since that day, she has never spoken a word. Under the tutelage of her adoptive parents, however, Shion has learned to express herself through the game of shogi, even going so far as to enter the world of the professionals whilst still in middle school. But as the police continue their investigation into the death of Shion’s parents, it seems that the world of shogi might hold the answer to that particular mystery as well. Continue reading “Final Thoughts: Shion no Ou”

Allison and Lillia’s handbook for life

Do you have difficulty in social situations? Do you just not know what to do when put on the spot? Luckily, Allison and Wil have put together a convenient handbook that will sit snugly on your bookshelf right next to “How to Win Friends and Influence People”.

  • When old men tell tall tales, don’t hesitate to believe them. Who knows, their wild stories of war-ending treasures might just be true, and if not, at least you got a nice cup of tea for your efforts.
  • When suspicious old ladies offer you a cup of tea, drink it without reservation. Even if she locks you in her cellar, it shouldn’t be too hard to get out. Continue reading “Tuesday Rumble: July 8th”

Tuesday Rumble: March 18th

chibi-dii-blog.pngThe Aria Business Empire
Many have wondered exactly how President Aria made his millions, but in his inimitable fashion, he has only answered “punyu!” to the many questions directed at him. Nonetheless, Tuesday Rumble wasn’t willing to leave it at that, and so we have decided to delve into the origin and growth of what we now know as one of the universe’s most successful business empires.

Like all the best entrepreneurs, President Aria built himself up from nothing, with his dream of hitting the big time beginning in his early years. Whilst roaming the back streets of Neo Venezia, Aria dreamed of the day when he would be able to afford his own hat, and resolved to find a business partner to help him achieve this mighty dream.
