Getsu Fuma Den Part 1: Need to Fill My Sword Meter

And thanks to Isstvan82, we're back to our actual purpose: playing games in Japanese we know nothing about! Today he begins Getsu Fuma Den, or Getsu Fuuma Den, or Getsufuu Maden, or any one of the dozen spellings people have used for "The Legend of Getsu Fuma." Fuma himself showed up as a character and bonus stage in Castlevania: Harmony of Despair, and Isstvan and I were both intrigued. So here we go!

More Fun With HK Bootlegs: Naruto Episodes 1-3

After rewatching some of "The King Game: Fight Against Demons" I was sitting here kicking myself for not getting more Hong Kong Bootleg Anime when it was readily available. I'd kind of like to start a collection, now.

So I'm in Goodwill yesterday and there's the first 100 episodes of Naruto in glorious bootleg form. So how bad is it?

Meet Uzumaku Naruto! (Hey, they got pretty close!)

The villagers don't like him much, and they also don't like Ham very much.

Naruto gets into mischief.

No, the Book of Sealed. 

But Naruto saved the Book of Sealed from the evil teacher, and became a ninja, and all was well.

This is Konohamaru! His following art is sucks.

He's not much better at transfiguring.

Naruto tries to help Konohamaru learn to transform into a naked girl, because blah blah next Hokage.

Ultimately Naruto fends off Konohamaru's teacher by combining his Seduction Art and Shadow Duplication Art to form...

And in the next episode there aren't a lot of good captions, but we get this:

And the opening credits inform us of Naruto's real dream:

He wants to experience Open Heart Ninja Surgery.

So what did we do during the blackout?

Me, I played some Dragon Quest VI for DS until my DSi XL's battery died. Other than that I mainly sweated.

But Isstvan82? He did this:

An LED desklamp, I should mention. It wound up being the brightest flashlight in the house. The microphone boom is working out nicely too!

Back Soon As We Recover From Powerlessness!

We lost our power in that big storm that hit the east coast on last Friday and just now, at 1:00 PM EST on the 4th of July, got our power back. Gonna try for some kind of updates over the next couple days and get back to business as the new week begins. Sorry to leave you in the lurch, guys, but we're back!
