Le gasp, an update! On The (Real) Scratch Pad? What the hell is this bullshit!? Horrible jokes aside, since the entire Scratch Pad crew is pretty aware that we’ve done jack-all on this site for a month, we decided to come together and share our thoughts on some of the happenings that occurred at SDCC last weekend. We don’t discuss everything, obviously, but we do talk about all the Marvel stuff and The Last Airbender: Legend of Korra. There is also some discussion of the Green Lantern film. Finally, we all decided to save the DCnU stuff for later, so keep an eye out for that. As usual, I’m silent as hell while Tetris, Don, and Sketch do all the talking. Oh, and Dragonpiece is in this as well.

The first review is up already? Well will wonders never cease. Now if i could just churn out podcasts at this rate things would be golden. Those are still coming by the way. 5 are in the can and I’m editing them one by one.

In this post I give my introduction to He-Man and the Masters of the Universe touching on some common traits of the series and then I delve right into a review of the episode “The Cosmic Comet”. Click the post to read on.

What’s this a new segment for The [Real] Scratch Pad? What’s this all about? Read the rest to find out.

Mood Swings, Everybody Dies, and Space Race

Due to some miscommunication that was probably all my fault, these two episodes didn’t air on Toon Radio last Tuesday as was planned. As for the reason why these episodes would even air back-to-back in the first place is because we weren’t able to record episode 11 on the weekend it was supposed to be recorded, so we recorded them both the following weekend. Though I did send Robert the files for these episodes, a rerun of Episode 10 and an episode of the awesome GeekNights podcast aired in their place. Now time to talk about the episodes themselves: Sketch was on both on these episode, since he really wanted to be on at least one episode where we talk about Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. And who are we to deny him that? He was the one who suggested that we watch the series in the first place. There was also a bit in one of these episodes where we watched this Beat Crusaders music video…something I forgot whether I kept or not. One thing that I do remember cutting is a bit in Episode 12 where I admit that Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt is the first Gainax production that I’ve ever watched. Feel free to ridicule me for that in the comments below.

Literal Star Wars, Gratuitous Engrish, Silent Reading Time, and Die Hard IN SPACE!

EPISODE 11: The opening theme used in this episode is Bōken Desho Desho? (sung by Aya Hirano), which happens to be the opening theme for the first season of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. The closing theme is Hare Hare Yukai, also sung by Aya Hirano, and also from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.
EPISODE 12: The opening theme is Libera Me From Hell, which is sung by Tarantula (from the band Spontania) & Kasahara Yuri, arranged by Iwasaki Taku, and used in the latter half of Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. The ending theme is My World Down by the band Meister, and was used as the ending theme for the first half of BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad.– RacattackForce

In this episode we pay tribute to the late great Robotomy. I meant to get this episode up before the last episode aired on Cartoon Network but unfortunately I was not able to do that. This episode was recorded a few weeks ago so the news is a bit out-dated but if you haven’t heard it yet then it’s still news to you. We’d like to thank Tomato Surprise for joining us this episode and we hope to have him back soon. Thanks for sticking with us, we’re still working some kinks out. None the less we hope you enjoy this week’s episode of Not Another Old Cartoon Podcast

Hello Scratch Pad readers, I’m starting a new segment on the The Scratch Pad I like to call You Should Be Watching! This new segment will highlight animated series currently broadcasting on US television or available for streaming legally in the US. They’re basically mini-reviews giving reasons why I feel any animation fan should be watching this particular animated series. For my first entry in this new segment let me introduce you to the new Batman in town as I highlight Warner Bros. Animation’s Batman: The Brave and the Bold.

Tomato tasked the rest of The Scratch Pad crew with giving him and other new anime viewers a selection of Japanese animated series that might help him appreciate the medium. It’s my day so I’m up first. Ladies and gentleman let me introduce you to the bizarre world of Japanese animation with three shows that I think just about anybody would enjoy. We’ll start with series that are barely “anime” and ease you into series with more common anime traits that wont beat you over the head with them.
