For more episodes, go check us out at www.fivepointpodcast.com!
Captain Earth, he's our hero, gonna explain the plot slightly more than zero! With good and bad points exemplified, he is fighting on the planet's side!
And no, there isn't any cheesy 90's environmentalism. Ah well.
Popee the Performer(2001-2006), Popee the Clown
Director: Ryuji Masuda
Children, Black Comedy,
Key Words: Blood, Torture, violence,
Studio:Kids Station, Nippon Columbia Licensed American Publisher:
Popee is a performer that works with a circus in the middle of the desert. Each time he attempts to do a performance, it usually dissolves into the characters destroying each other in cartoon manners.
My Thoughts: What the hell can I say about this show? It’s really weird! There is really no talking during the show and so hard to understand exactly what is going on in any of the episodes. All I gather is that Popee is a performer who ends up dieing or being tortured at the end of every episode and his dog laughs about it or ends up tortured as well. It makes me wonder just why it’s for little children.
The animation is rather rough. It looks slightly stiff and a couple times the movement doesn’t even have fluid movement. Many of the faces that are used look like they would be better in a horror show rather then a kids show. There are times they actually squash and stretch the 3D animation to when the textures look really bad.
There are no voices, but there is a really odd music that sounds even creepier then the show. It has a bit of a Indonesian feel but you can’t really pick out the words very easy when its playing. (Well, I can say it is in Japanese so that might be part of it.)
In the end, I really didn’t like this show and just felt it boring with more what the fuck moments then I could care to sit through again.

Stitch! Anime (Oct 8, 2008 – June 26, 2009),
Director: Masami Hata
Key Words: Disney, Remakes,
Studio: Madhouse, Walt Disney Animation Japan Licensed American Publisher: Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment
Lilo has a boyfriend now and Stitch is annoyed that he isn’t the center of attention now so he leaves for an adventure. Along the way, he is sucked into a wormhole and crashes in the Okinawa Prefecture and the Ryukyu Islands in Japan. There he wants to get his wish but to do so, he must do good deeds.
My Thoughts: Oh my god… they made another one? So this one is supposed to be after Lilo gets a boyfriend or something. Stitch, up to no good as always, jumps on his little flying car and starts to create mayhem. We have the same enemies, the same stupid sidekicks, and the same out of control main character as before, but with a different girl. They have the same storyline with Ichariba Chodei (Also known as Ohana) which is pretty much ‘meet ones cuz forever’. It’s pretty much a Japanese Lilo and Stitch… bla…
Seriously, how do I talk about something that feels like it’s from America in storyline, characters, and concept? The only thing they use is that they are in some alternate timeline in order to bring a new girl and culture in. Well, there is one other thing… Stitch is collecting good deeds. I don’t know about you but if the little creature is doing good things for selfish reasons, I don’t think it works. Also, his goal is not really good so it messes things up. The show does base around Japanese demon mythology instead of aliens, but I don’t really care for this. And that is coming from a girl who loves supernatural stuff. It just feels really forced because it’s a ‘find and capture’ game with yokai instead of aliens now, although once in a while they get an alien or two. It’s good if they had one or another, but not both! The ending also didn’t have really a good closer as it left it open for the next season. How they made a second season out of this I have no idea.
The animation is pretty much standard series animation for a show that was created as a rehash of the original rehash of a movie. Yes, that’s a lot of rehashing and it seriously feels old. The artwork is bland is what I’m trying to say. It just looks like they pulled this together in a short time although pretty clean as a computer created. Scenes are reused many times over. Disney signs are all over the place from items that Stitch puts back together to some references. It got so bad that the dub even made fun of it. It’s just too much even for Disney. I found that the opening was changed rather badly between the sub and dub. The dub just used clips from the show in order to make a stupid opening just as how 4kids does most of the time.
The dub sounds like it was done by 4kids, seriously bad with a lot of off kid language. You can’t understand Stitch at all, though he should be able to speak a little better after living with Lilo so long. And this doesn’t make sense because half the time, stitch talks more then ever and others he acts like he doesn’t speak English. Now they do get better later on but it ends up to late. In fact, I think they even changed the voices for the dubbed version comparing it to the English version. It has the same childhood lesions as the show before, but they feel forced at times. Even the jokes are rather forced making me feel bored. The music is really bland with nothing that really stands out. The Japanese dub is so much better, actually having half of Stitch’s sounds actually being words. Seriously, most of the gibberish that he says in the dub is supposed to be complete sentences.
The only thing good about this was they brought Angel back.
