I'm going to name my first born child "gunfire".

Also, the puppetshow line just about made me choke on lunch.

Made me giggle frequently. "No punsies this week!" shame.
But yay for androgynous anime characters, who all look the same, just with different wigs. Heh, there's a video idea in that somewhere..

Heh. "I dunno, it's water, right? I mean we're fish. How's the air, douchebag?" This one was definitely giggle worthy.

EDIT: I had brought up goat's bad link, but then he fixeded it. :)

Yeah, sorry about the link. An extra space got in there somehow, and php decided it didn't look enough like a link to... ya know... link it.

*shrug* That's what I get for not checking my work.

Very funny episode. Loved the fish trio.

I'm surprised that there was no discussion of the helmets considering the good guys look like firefighters and the bad guys have no faces whatsoever. That's swinging the 2x4 of symbolism.

As a fish, how did you react to the blatant fish voyeurism displayed by the main character?

Back on topic: My favourite part was the fish voices. That part of the cut-scene was just begging for it.

I almost didn't want to watch this one since I like Valkyria Chronicles so much and wasn't sure I wanted to see it mocked. But I did and I thought it was funny, so you're clearly doing something right.

You know, I was feeling like the last few Unskippables were pretty sub-par, but this one was actually really good. I think that Graham and Paul are in top form when they make fun of bright, pastel-colored anime cutscenes, judging from this, Eternal Sonata, Grandia III etc.

Re-watching this, something occurred to me: I know it was no punsies week, but funny as the bit with the fish was there were also sketches of plants in the book, and you really missed out on the opportunity to make a mint spy joke. I'm just sayin'.
