Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Stars (Episodes #180-182)

Welcome back to more Sailor Stars reviews! This time we FINALLY see Sailor Uranus & Neptune show up again! Then we see the final episode for Sailor Iron Mouse… and the much-dreaded debut of CHIBI-CHIBI, who was one of the least-liked Sailor Moon characters to the ’90s fandom (who of course had mostly only heard ABOUT her, not actually seen her). EPISODE #180: And finally… … Continue reading Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Stars (Episodes #180-182)

Jab’s Reviews: TMNT (The Channel 6 Crew & The Neutrinos)

Hey all! Welcome back to more TMNT commentary! This week, I have a theme going of “1980s Cartoon Recurring Supporting Characters”, as we get the Channel 6 crew (part of April O’Neil’s coworkers), plus the uber, UBER 1980s Neutrinos. Channel 6 is on the air – and Irma’s on the hunt for news. She may be April’s best friend, but she’s out to scoop her … Continue reading Jab’s Reviews: TMNT (The Channel 6 Crew & The Neutrinos)

Sticky post

Follow The SWO Productions!

No new “article” today, as it were! Just a reminder that SWO Productions continues to grow and grow, and I’m not the most marketing-savvy person in the world, so it’s entirely possible you my not even know everything we have gotten ourselves up to these days! With that in mind, I’ve decided to create a little one-stop shop with direct connections to some of our … Continue reading Follow The SWO Productions!

Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Stars (Episodes #176-179)

More Sailor Stars! This time the other two Sailor Starlights get some focus. EPISODE #176:  School test shenanigans are afoof, as Usagi, Minako AND Seiya fail their tests and need to do make-ups, but Seiya’s ALSO struggling with a stage director, who criticizes his entire performance. Meanwhile, Rei continues her “teleports straight to Juuban High” gimmick, while now copying the “Noblewoman Laugh” anime cliché as … Continue reading Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Stars (Episodes #176-179)

Sailor Moon: Sailor Stars (Episodes #173-175)

Like these douches? You better- the creators fall in love with them and they run away with the spotlight for weeks at a time. Hey, we’re back! And now I finally reach the final, FINAL arc of the 200-episode series, as we hit the “Sailor Starlights/Galaxia” arc! The entire nature of the show shifts from this point out- this ends up being one of the … Continue reading Sailor Moon: Sailor Stars (Episodes #173-175)

Sailor Moon: Sailor Stars (Episodes #170-172)

Welcome back to more Sailor Stars reviews! The series is now in its last season, but has oddly brought back the villain from the PRIOR one, having found the way she went out disappointing. This is probably one of the most well-thought-of arcs left to go, and is the only time we see the entirety of the Sailor Senshi fight as a unit! So let’s … Continue reading Sailor Moon: Sailor Stars (Episodes #170-172)

Sailor Moon: Sailor Stars (Episodes #167-169)

The return of Nehalennia. Welcome back! And it’s time now for the very, very last season of Sailor Moon, as I delve into Sailor Stars! This one is the season I know by far the least about- final notes hadn’t quite been made of it when I first got into the fandom, and later on, the fansites had kinda disappeared and I wasn’t as obsessed … Continue reading Sailor Moon: Sailor Stars (Episodes #167-169)

Jab’s Disney Reviews: Brother Bear

BROTHER BEAR (2003):Written by: Tab Murphy, Lorne Cameron, David Hoselton, Steve Bencich & Ron J. Friedman -I figured “what the hell?” and rented this one- it’s one of the latter-day Disney films, and didn’t do to well or get very well-received, but it’s… okay. Ish. It basically has some cool set pieces and one VERY awesome transformation sequence that reminds you how mind-blowing this studio is, but … Continue reading Jab’s Disney Reviews: Brother Bear

Jab’s Disney Reviews: Home on the Range, Chicken Little & Meet the Robinsons

So we’ve once again hit a point where I wasn’t watching much Disney (I was away at college and mostly renting older stuff at this point). And most of these reviewed HORRIBLY, so I made no attempt to go see them. HOME ON THE RANGE (2004):Written by: Will Finn, John Sanford, Michael LaBash, Sam Levine, Mark Kennedy & Robert Lence -One of the most forgotten Disney … Continue reading Jab’s Disney Reviews: Home on the Range, Chicken Little & Meet the Robinsons

Jab’s Reviews: TMNT (The Archie-Exclusive Characters… yes including Cudley the Cowlick)

JAGWAR: -Jagwar is the de facto leader of the Mighty Mutanimals, a spin-off attempt from the TMNT Adventures Archie Comics series. Like I said earlier, they were short-lived (a three-issue mini-series followed by an ongoing that was cancelled after only 9 issues), and were killed after a six-part back-up storyline in the main “TMNT” book- a SHOCKING move at the time. The Archie comics were kind of messed-up in … Continue reading Jab’s Reviews: TMNT (The Archie-Exclusive Characters… yes including Cudley the Cowlick)

Jab’s Disney Reviews: Treasure Planet

TREASURE PLANET (2002):Written by: Ron Clements, John Musker, Rob Edwards, Ted Elliot & Terry Rossio The backstory to the making of this movie is more interesting to me than the actual film itself, which is totally forgettable. Clements & Musker, two A-level directors responsible for The Little Mermaid, basically begged the studio for 12 years to make this, being rejected every time. Again and again, they were … Continue reading Jab’s Disney Reviews: Treasure Planet

Comics’ Best Alternate Looks: Part 3

I’m still at this! We have done this twice before at this point (Exhibit A and Exhibit B), and I can’t stress this enough: I love alternate get-ups. I am the guy that, when I get a video game where the hero can unlock or earn various costumes, I will NEVER use the default look again. The Spider-Man PS4 game absolutely spoiled me for this. What an … Continue reading Comics’ Best Alternate Looks: Part 3

Sailor Moon SuperS (Final Summation)

SAILOR MOON SUPERS:-… sigh… well, HERE GOES… Out of all the seasons of Sailor Moon, the fourth seasons, Sailor Moon SuperS (said like “Supers”, but with a big “S”, because reasons), is almost universally the most disliked by the show’s adult fanbase. Even back in the 1990s, in the early days of the widespread online anime fandom, SuperS was seen as pretty weak- the only … Continue reading Sailor Moon SuperS (Final Summation)
