Hmmm... I'm particular to Hellsing Abridged myself, to be honest. YGOTAS is interesting, but not totally my cup of tea. SAOA is... concussive maintenance on a really really bad show so bad that the fact that it's bad is a meme has become a meme of itself. Surprisingly, it works. Kinda.

Cynical Toast could hack it as a member of Something Witty Entertainment. Look no further for an encyclopedic cascade of Internet memes.

Random guesses:

Way of the House Husband = stay-at-home dad manual

Spy x Family = 2000s Disney Channel original movie

How close am I?

I heard about Way of the House Husband but not Spy x Family. I've only read a little bit of both but I'll happily watch both.

Ngl, I immediately thought of that Jackie Chan movie "Spy Next Door".
Which I imagine is much worse than Spy x Family will be.

way of the house husband is a manga about an ex yakuza member who becomes a house husband. it's hysterical and i highly recommend reading it.
read right to left!


spy x family is a manga about a spy who needs to pretend he has a family for Spy ReasonsTM and so he ends up with an assassin willing to be his fake wife for her own reasons. neither knows the other's identity. he adopts a kid who is secretly a telepath so she's the only one who knows her new parents are spies. cue slow burn romance and hilarious chaos. also highly recommend this one, especially if you enjoy spy vs spy antics and fake relationships gradually becoming real.


I don't know if I've ever seen spy next door :"D

I'm not much of a manga reader but both of those do look great! I chuckled hard at the House Husband panels.

Much agree about the chuckling part for the House Husband panels. They are amusing. Though I don't much read manga either, these days.

If you're looking to get back into it and read legally to support the artists, shonen jump and mangaplus have a bunch of titles where you can read the first 3 and latest 3 chapters for free! Then if you really wanna read the rest, you can pay I think 3$/month for unlimited access to their library. Not to mention you can get a free week trial. You can check out their selection on their website; it's extremely worth $3/month imo.

I sort of fell out of the habit of reading manga for a while but got back into it when I found out that these apps existed. Now I'm following a handful of series' and it's like a bonus thing to look forward to every week. :)
I wanna make my on kinda comics sometime so I consider it...research. yes. research.

So according to my calendar, today is my 13th anniversary of being on Marriland/Azurilland/Marriland. I went and looked at the old forums and it appears to be gone completely now. Sad day. Anyway, hope you are all doing well!

Heya Slix!
Unfortunately the only thing remaining of the old forums is anything saved by the wayback machine.... but it's better than nothing!

Hi! Yeah, sadly that's where a lot of the internet lives after some time. I wish more companies cared about preservation, but alas.

Happy Marriversary, Slix!!! My 11th is at the end of the month.
Huzzah for being old timers! Lol.

But, yeah. Sadly archiving isnt always something companies think of.
.
Azurilland was pretty much just lost to Curse's demise. I really wish it could at least redirect here. But that's probably impossible at this point.

They didn't even give us any heads up, either. It was truly heartbreaking.

I mean...I don't think we should have expected any kind of heads up from Curse.

And I'm not sure when it happened, but congrats on becoming Admin, Ben! That's awesome!

Oh yeah congrats on being an admin!

And while a part of me is glad to not have my embarrassing old posts up anymore- I can't deny I'm bummed all that history is gone. Even beyond the grave- Curse continues to be annoying

I think the day I found out the old forums were "gone gone" were one of the saddest days of recent times. I guess at some point, all of the corners of the internet will be deleted at some point, but it's just sad that someone out there thought it wasn't worth storing.

Isn't that a weird thought? The vast majority of human progress, knowledge, and accomplishment these days is tied to something completely intangible.

When a solar flare fries our entire planet plus every piece of technology thereon, will the aliens think human civilization basically ended in the early 00's?
