Review: Killing Bites

Review: Killing Bites (Non-Spoilery) Season Aired: Winter 2018 - 12 episodes MAL Link: Killing Bites I watched it at: Kawaiifu   Review: KIlling Bites is an R-rated B-movie. It's the kind of outrageous sex and violence filled schlocky sci-fi grindhouse you might have found on direct-to-video or late-night cable once upon an age ago.  The kind of show where you see somebody casually pick up their own chopped-off arm and beat their opponent to de

Part 8: Please Stand By

Part 8 --Backstage of the Grand Arena, Verse City   Four television screens operated in unison by some tech operator named Steve or Chuck, or whatever. Amanda Waller didn’t care to remember his name. She could see the GCGBTC logo on his uniform and that told her all she needed to know. He was a lackey. A cog in the machine. Waller crossed her arms, disinterested in the content of the feed. Instead, she watched the control operator edit the broadcast in real time. Removing M+

My ratings system is based on how pleased my brain is with the viewing experience.  There is a lot of anime out there to watch and much of it is terribly forgettab

"Greetings. I am Space Ghost. Welcome to my show." The empty studio echoed his voice. The silence was deafening. After several seconds, Space Ghost let out a frustrated sigh and faded onto the chair behind his desk. The long forgotten one time cosmic hero turned talk show host, Space Ghost, began his show like he always did: "My first guest tonight is--"  Zorak, his former enemy turned co-host, screeched, "You don't have any guests."

Part 6   --Alleyway Outside the Grand Arena, Verse City. Our blood-soaked Hero of Gallowmere swung his mighty sword, cutting off the head of the Meat-monster-man. It gave a blood-curdling screech as it’s head flew into the air and splattered onto the ground. Well done, Sir Daniel! The creature’s body went limp for a moment, then ejected another head from it’s neck. “Uhhh oh!” (Uh oh!) Daniel mumbled. It seems he’s not yet vanquished. No time to waste, Fortesque

One last punch to the big oaf's snout was enough to send him backwards into the wrestling ring ropes and rebound to the mat. The crowd, full of wannabe henchmen, had finally turned against him and cheered ‘Ogre! Ogre! Ogre!’. Their excitement was palpable. Shrek could feel their energy and it made the pain in his knuckles and face lessen. He roared to the crowd, feeding off
