    In honesty, Toriyama's style makes even the women look fairly manly. His style is very butch, so I can imagine why none of them qualified.

    You know, I did also expect for Holli Would to be on the list somewhere. I mean, picture a cat fight between her and Jessica Rabbit.

    Holli may have ranked in if more than a thimble full of people saw Cool World. It was such a bomb that few people even remember it now; it only occasionally turns up as the topic of a bar trivia conversation starting with: "Say, do you remember this movie that came out years ago called...?"

    Hmm. Maybe That Guy should do a review of Cool World. That could prove to be worth a chuckle.

    Well, the Sci-Fi Channel did use to put it on the air.

    Actually, I like to see a NC review on Cool World and this is coming from a guy who actually likes the film.

    Why? I dunno, I'm just tossing out ideas.

    That I'd like to see as well. Who wants to bet that Rei Anyanami will be on the No. 1 spot?

    Mr Suede seems a bit biased to me. Seems all he's doing is broadcasting the average anime fanboy opinion.

    Then he would needed to made aware of the fact that Cool World was originally conceived as very different (and better) movie, which you can read all about in the recently-released book "Unfiltered: The Complete Ralph Bakshi".

    Actually I several of the female characters in the Dragon Ball series quite attractive. In addition to Bulma, there's Chi-Chi, L(a)unch, #18, and Videl.

    I still think that would've made interesting movie. Hell, I say get Tobe Hooper to direct Bakshi's original.

    Why Tobe Hooper? I don't know, it's just that the guy does alot of crazy and disturbing Horror films and Bakshi's original vision of Cool World fits the bill.

    Animenia cometh

    His Animenia theme song is nice

    The AMV song with Azumanga Daioh was hilarious

    So, who else wants to re-watch RahXephon after seeing that AMV

    So far, all the new people on That Guy's site are really funny. And its cool to always see fresh content on the site. :)

    Mr. Suede is a lot of fun. As much as I love That Guy With The Glasses, its nice to have an equally talented anime geek doing videos on the site (even if he did start off as a shameless rip-off).

    Have any of you guys seen the rest of the spoony one's vids? They are freakin' hilarious. I mean better than the AVGN hilarious (he does video games like FMV's and stuff) And his website is even better. He has full page reviews of movies that he does and doesn't like and they are so good, I wish that they would become videos. For instance, he did a report on "Akira." Now I'm one who will defend that movie to my death but after reading the review and the way he tore into it, I seriously couldn't stop laughing (especially with his comment of Tokyo blowing up is the equivalent of "It was a dark and stormy night). However, I would advise him to check out the new dub to avoid the accent problem the old dub had.

    Follow that dude in the suede's and the NC's advice and check out the spoony one. He's awesome.

    Actually Spooney has been my favorite of the bunch of these internet mini-celebrities that's been popping up for a while now; I'm glad to see he's getting more exposure (with hopeful a bit less of the massive TMI moments like in the 'make my video' video).

    Why would he need to be? He doesn't need to know any of that in order to give the film a good, nostalgic review.

    Ah, thank you. Say, does he have any plans to do more video reviews on various movies?

    got around to watching the other users

    GYMDK was too weird for me. Plus he's french. But That Dude in the Suede is great, even though i'm not a big anime geek. didn't like the spoony Guy intro (except the Govonator Soundtrack), but the FMV video was great (Suede is still the best tho)

    Edit: Nevermind, Spoony is the best. His videos on his site are great, and are pretty long (one lasts a full 1/2 hour!), and is still able to keep up the NC/AVGN pace. Sometimes they do run a little too long and sometimes the jokes aren't as great, but I think he's going to be the next big Online Reviewer

    Looks like the Nostalgia Critic finally fixed his videos. I don't know what he did, but I can watch them now.
