Just to restate it: Do not give up on the Dokapon playthrough, the past two sessions have gotten batshit nutso. Episode 42 (came out an hour ago) is the start of last Saturday's session, meaning the anime is almost to the simulcast of the manga.

I'm an anime watcher, but the past few episodes have been pretty good.

Regarding Naruto, today's episode made me wonder... is there a character in shonen that pulled a Sasuke-esqe turn, except that they were eventually rejected by the hero/es? I've been struggling to think of one, and nothing comes to mind. In all the shonen I can think of, if people like the character enough, they eventually get forgiven.

They're playing Dokapon Kingdom, the most ratfuckery of adventure boardgames, doing the story mode, which is approximately 40-60 hours long, and they're doing it for a (started a few episodes in) viewer-donated prize pool aka The Blood Pool that is currently approximately $3500 winner take all (a smaller "peace pool" is to be split between the losers).

They are 90+% done with the game.

(The youtube is currently about 37hrs of content with another 4-6ish is on twitch to be pieced out across the next few days, and more to be recorded on Saturday)

Endeavour in My Hero Academia is genuinely trying to turn his life around and become s better person after being an abusive piece of poo poo for decades. His family still told him to go gently caress himself.

Hah, I just watched the last few episodes of MHA S4, and I spent most of them muttering "stop trying to redeem this lovely rear end in a top hat." I mean, I'm glad Endeavour is trying to turn his life around, but gently caress him forever.

What I've seen of Sasuke in Boruto, he seems a lot better and recognizes how much of a poo poo he was as a kid, but it's still amazing that everyone is okay with him after all he did.

It's not a redemption story, it's an atonement story. This is a very important distinction.

I subscribe to the fan theory that he's only being kept around in case one of the kids needs to be killed off, mostly because I want him to die horribly.

I mean, jfc, the first thing he says to a little girl upon meeting her is "I can't wait to see you in ten years!"

Oh, Dokapon Kingdom, that makes total sense. At least I'm now finally caught up on this scorpion and frog hellworld that Woolie and Reggie are constantly cycling in for no good reason.

This is despite them cranking out 2 episodes daily (which is 2 hours according to woolie time) for the last month or so.

Dokapon is amazing. It all boils down to:
Woolie min-maxed the wrong stats at the start and now his only chance is to fight through the main quest and hope the rewards put him in first
Mihn is an agent of absolutechaos whispering bad things to the others, doing everything to stop Woolie and printing money.
Reggie is beloved in game so all NPCs basically bend over backwards to put him in first.

I was team Reggie, but he spent last stream doing nothing while Mihn and Woolie fought for their lives.

I mean I feel like the bolded is the important distinction with Sasuke. He defected at like 12/13 and by the end of Naruto he was like 15/16. "I was a traumatised child soldier" is probably one of the best excuses anyone can have for bad behaviour. It's still creepy Sakura and Karin are into him after the murder attempts, but I can get like letting him be otherwise.

Orochimaru is the weird one, though I guess the ninja countries all decided to blank slate their war crimes against each other and he (or is it they now?) got included in that.

Reggie is the absolute incarnation of Failing Upwards, making 95% wrong decisions but reality showering him in riches.

Minh is simultaneously Grima Wormtongue and Saruman - terrorizing everyone with his magic spells and dodge chances on the field, and his honeyed words keeping everyone from smacking his poo poo in combat as he rightly deserves and taking all his stuff.

Woolie is the hardest working character in Dokapon - just trading blow for blow with the very forces of Heck while Minh and Minh-suaded Reggie rain poo poo upon him.

It's weird that this, now, is the thing that breaks him.

"Everything is a cycle that repeats over and over" is like the core theme of Naruto. It's not subtle and it's all over the place and this is what gets him?

e: Come to think of it this isn't even the first time the story talks about the Sage and his brother so it's just repeating that information and Woolie just now puts two and two together?

It changes every hour. But you get poo poo like Woolie pulling the insane upset and finally clawing out of last place into first... only for Reggie to land in a spot and that Mitch Digger basically going "well, i'll just double your economic value for no reason."



I wish there was a way to get a stream of Woolie watching post-ending Naruto content. I wanna see him go through the hijinks of the "Buy Naruto and Hinata a wedding gift, ya child soldiers" arc, if only so that when he's finally starting to have a good time, he gets to explode seeing Orochimaru in the background just doing whatever. Or that Boruto episode where Naruto takes Boruto to Ichiraku Ramen for the first time and pulls out his old, busted "Naruto Coupon". The boys rant a lot about Persona 4 characters becoming cartoons of themselves in spinoffs, but post-ending Naruto takes that so much farther beyond and Naruto proper got so bad that it becomes the best poo poo.

Boruto anime has been good, almost oddly so. I wouldn't recommend the manga but the cartoon is strangely enjoyable.

It's a bit too stale for me to follow week to week, but a lot of arcs are super enjoyable. Boruto is a very good boy. That said, I want Woolie to watch the Movie even though the anime version is better; the way he started going on about Kishimoto having some relationship he's desperately trying to mend through the manga would go into overdrive when the movie's conclusion takes a 180 and has Boruto read to the camera "I, the son, was wrong to not love my absentee father. He is the coolest, and I want to ask him about his youth."

Yeah, in hindsight, the movie is a bit worse when compared to the show, but I pissed off my Harry Potter fangirl friend when I told her that Cursed Child basically ripped the Boruto movie off.

The reaction I got from her makes the Boruto movie one of my favorite movies ever.
