I went to another anime club show last week, in 4+ hours of the "latest"
animes I found only Bubble Gum Crisis 2040 worth my time. At the end they
put in an extra tape for "audience testing", forgot the name but it's got
an weird in-your-face deliberately-pointless Pokemon-for-adult-loser style
to it. No wonder Tomino can't "keep up" with the times...
