Watched the first episode of SAO War of Underworld Part 2 tonight. I know a lot of people write it off, and I'm not going to claim it's a masterpiece, but I've really enjoyed watching SAO over the summer and into the school year and I'm super excited that the end of season 4 is nearly upon us.

I watched one episode of Alicization or whatever on Adult Swim, and I don't know if the translation was bad, but the dialogue was written like a kid's anime.
It sure as hell isn't as bad as the abomination that is the Alfheim arc, but it was not good.

Well, I guess we're still on the subject of SAO. It just finished its fourth season, so if you've never watched that or if you need to catch up, now's as good a time as any.

whenever anyone talks about watching SAO I just can’t think of why you’d watch the original instead of the abridged :”0

Rest assured, I watched Abridged as well, and I loved it. But I still wanted to watch the original as well, for the experience if nothing else.

I can't speak for SAO Abridged- but Yugioh Abridged was something I loved back in the day. Plenty of quotable lines that are totally products of old internet humor- but are iconic nonetheless.

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.
