  1. I am now 99% certain Ash is going to go into episode 12 not knowing who the hell Lance is.

    1. Cinematic Speedster CC14

      Probably means we can also pour one out for Lance's brief career as a Pokemon G-Man. (Speaking of, MAN did the supposed government DROP THE BALL and not give a SINGLE damn post-Hoenn. 😆)

  2. The graphic novel solicit reveals a couple more plotpoints
  3. I checked the Kingdom Hearts subreddit per reommendation and I now absolutely understand why Disney characters were left out of Data Greeting mode...

  4. Apparently Ash acts as if he’s never met a Dragonite before in the new episode ಠ_ಠ

    1. Teoskaven


      Nothing new, he had this behavior since the Black/White seasons if not even earlier.

    2. Ferno


      I mean, they can't expect kids to watch 1000 episodes so

      @Ferno what does that have to do with anything?

    4. Ferno


      He met Dragonite(s) in the early seasons right? Like around Indigo League/ Orange Islands? That was way back is all I'm saying so it would kinda make sense to reintroduce it as if it were new for new viewers

      @Ferno why though? The younger crowd go into the show knowing full well that Ash has travelled a lot (the second episode of this series makes that apparent enough) making it logical to assume he would’ve seen a Dragonite at least once during that time. And even if it hadn’t, why would a kid even think to question it? Ash has recognised just about every other pre-Gen VIII Pokemon in this series so far with no problems.

      The anime writers had absolutely nothing to gain from doing this.

    6. Ferno


      That's fair yeah

      @Ferno Narrative 101: that's what flashbacks are for, it literally could have take the span of 10-20 seconds by having a small clip of an episode where Ash had met a Dragonite and then back to the present with him saying "yeah, i remember seeing them in the past", even without having to be specific about it.


      If they wanted to have a case of having each new season being a fresh start they should have done like the games and have different protagonists for each with their own set of supporting characters; making your recurring protagonist dumb and ignoring continuity for the sake of not alienating newcomers (on top of the other problems the show has been suffering for a while now) is a hard thing for me to justify.

      Or they could’ve just removed the implication altogther. The line in question is “Dragonite, huh? I’d like to meet one!”

      They could’ve just had him say the first half and leave it there, not explicitely indicating one way or the other if he’s ever seen one before.

  5. I have some major gripes with data greeting mode. First, the way they incorporated Destiny Islands into it is just stupid. It’s split into two areas; the beach, where you’re stuck on the shore and are completely blocked off from going anywhere else; and the paupo tree area which, again, you’re trapped in, without so much as being able to cross the bridge. Not only is it pointless to seperate these two spots that are right next to each other, but it’s ridiculous that you can’t explore the entire map in any way. Furthermore, certain areas limit you to certain characters and forms, some of which are ridiculously inconsistent; the game has no problem with the idea of Kairi interacting with action figure Sora in Toy Box, but having her appear next to monster Sora in Monstropolis is a step too far, apparently! The Disney worlds you can pick are limited to really boring areas, like the final boss area in Toy Box, the bottom of the door vault in Monstropolis, and the forest in Corona. I’d much rather take pictures in Andy’s room, the scare floor, or the Corona town area! But the biggest sin of all? Aside from Mickey, Donald and Goofy, you can’t use ANY Disney characters. Anywhere. In any world. I just... why?!
  6. *finishes Doctor Who*
    ...what the fuck just happened

    1. The Tenth Doctor

      The Tenth Doctor

      The rules of regeneration have been rewritten again as far as I can see.

    2. Joy


      Very hype episode but there's definitely a lot of setting up for later here which might affect how people look back on it in retrospect once we have the pay-offs. I did like the initial small scale idea of the Judoon surrounding the flat and the Doctor having to talk with two equally believably innocent people to solve a mystery before the Judoon kills both. Would've been cool to have an entire episode of that.


      I'm curious to see where they go with this Ruth-Doctor revelation. I'm personally thinking the alternate-universe Master theory is true and this Doctor is from there as well.

      I'd rather she's not retroactively revealed to be pre-Hartnell or anything. They managed the secret incarnation once with John Hurt but I think it's gonna feel really forced if they try it again.

      I never heard this theory.

    4. Joy


      @Big Panda


      From what I understand. The light creatures from Spyfall come from another universe, and because the Master is directly tied with them there's speculation he used them to get to this universe (reasons unknown).


  7. Based on what we know about artist info for upcoming issues, I’m guessing that’s #27 cover A. EDIT: shit, new page
  8. Reaction: a Kingdom Hearts title that is a completely independent entity that has nothing to do with the main sagas. Its only connections are thematic similarities and, of course, Disney characters. Kind of like what all the main FF entries are to each other.

    1. Wraith
    2. Thigolf


      Yes please but the entire series like that

  9. There are things that never fail to pull my heartstrings to shreds.

    Big doggos nurturing tiny kittens is one of those things.

  10. Issue 40 of the Sonic X comic established that Metal Sonic never existed in this continuity and I still find that a little hard to believe.

    1. Celestia


      I thought it made sense because it'd be very strange if Metal Sonic was a thing in the X universe but Eggman never used him for some reason. Like, surely there's plenty of times where Metal would have come in handy.

    2. Soniman


      X Eggman could've simply never thought of it yet. I don't think any of the history between him and Sonic adapted the series (minus broad strokes) directly until SA1

  11. The zombot arc makes it basically impossible for there to be sub-arcs about anything else, since this is an epidemic that is directly affecting every single person on the planet. In comparison, Archie’s Shattered World arc allowed for plenty of room for sub-arcs since, while it affected the planet at large, it didn’t interfere with the day-to-day lives of its inhabitants for the most part. It also helped that the crisis as a whole had a lot more components to it that didn’t make it so same-y.
  12. I genuinely don’t understand why it’s considered cheating to count cards in a casino.

    If it’s a physical skill people have, why shouldn’t they be allowed to use it? That’s like saying it’s cheating to have a crazy-good memory when playing a memory game.

    1. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      It's because the casinos don't want people to be good at it since they make less money. 

      Basically scumbags being scumbags. 

    2. Tarnish


      Because they want "The house always wins".

  13. I wouldn’t call that an “arc” as much as I’d call it a “status quo”.
  14. It’s great that nearly all of the KH series can now be played on a single platform. All we need now is a console remake of Union X and it’s all-

    “Our next title will be a mobile game”

    ...god dammit Nomura.

      You expecting them to improve on this was your first mistake sonny.

  15. Ventus Adventure 2

  16. Re:Mind spoiler maybe?



  17. I hope the next period of the comic is some much-needed worldbuilding.
  18. ...then I officially don’t understand your original post lmao
  19. If you have a reaction image folder:

    first saved vs most recently saved


    1. Teoskaven


      Bit triicky for me since i have sub-folders tied to their sources in case are too many.

      -yes, i have something like 500+ reaction images stored on my PC-


      Still, here's an aproximation:




  20. What’s this cover got to do with Vecpio?
  21. You get to play as Kairi for the final boss. And she’s insanely fun.
