Hey, I thought we all agreed that dogxing is wrong!

Edit: Oops, I didn't notice that @mento already made that exact same joke.

Didn't think Vinny would be on another one of these. Awesome!

Well now he's TWICE the dad he was before!

I think the closest thing GB has to an anthropomorphic embodiment of the site and its ideals is Cool Baby.

But one thing to note is that anthropomorphism and chibi caricatures are two different things.

@arbitrarywater: I loved Kill La Kill, but I agree that it does kind of lose some of what makes it so great towards the tail end of the show. What I thought was the best part of the show was the variety of over-the-top superpower representations of different school clubs (and later in the series, different cities/regions in Japan). That got kind of lost once they stopped introducing new characters and uniforms.

I'm not gonna say they're ASoF&I quality by any stretch of the imagination, but I had fun reading some of the Warhammer Fantasy Battle novels a few years back (the Gotrek and Felix series, specifically).

...I know, I'll leave now.

I did some soul searching and discussion with someone who first watched the series when they were in grad school (as opposed to middle school, like I did), and I've come to a sobering conclusion that Evangelion might not actually be that great. I fucking LOVED the show when I was in middle/high school, but I worry it might not hold up all that well this many years later.

I still want to believe, though :(

PS: The thing that first started me down this path of thought was watching Eren in Attack on Titan and thinking "Holy shit, Shinji had it EASY"

As 2 of the 3 brothers are writers for Polygon, video games sometimes are briefly addressed on My Brother, My Brother, and Me. Although it's mostly ghosts and horses.

An example of when a game was indirectly discussed.

When they say "the outskirts of New York state," I wonder if they mean "not IN NYC, but you can probably see it off in the distance" or if you're supposed to be "the scourge of the Finger Lakes" or something?

Flipper. Flipper flippers.

You're a genius and/or a monster.

@larmer: Please don't bring that in here. This is not a he said/she said argument thread.

Thank you, Hailinel.
