Reflections of a Dreaming Girl

Found this via Google+. I have no idea what it is from, but it appears to be a sort of Japanese version of Doctor Who, or maybe a parody. Some person found it on a VHS tape and uploaded it to YouTube.

At any rate I think it’s actually kinda awesome. The bit with the “Sonic Screw Sword” is probably the best.

(This whatever it is is probably influenced by sentai shows like Super Sentai - the most famous sentai show, which has been running for 30+ years nonstop on Japanese TV and was loosely adapted for U.S. TV as well, becoming the show we know as Power Rangers).

The Dalek doing that “ho ho ho ho” laugh is pretty funny too. To laugh saying “ho ho ho ho” is basically the Japanese equivalent of the stereotypical evil villain laugh in the U.S. It gets used in anime a lot too.

If anybody knows what this is from, don’t hesitate to let me know!

EDIT: According to The Nerdist, this video is the work of UK filmmaker Joshua Kahan and is a parody. Thanks for the info Nerdist!

The Meddling Monk wearing sunglasses. This. Is. Classic Who.

OMG I loved this part of “The Daleks’ Master Plan.” The Monk lands in Ancient Egypt (to which he has pursued The Doctor), sees how bright the sun is, then ducks back into his TARDIS (which is disguised as a big block of stone) and comes out wearing sunglasses. The combination of that monk’s habit with the sunglasses is just hilarious.

Found this via Anglophenia…someone has created a “50 Years trailer” of what American Doctor Who might’ve been like, using casting lists from smugmode. Very interesting “what if” video. Like the Gene Wilder casting particularly…loved him in “Willy Wonka.”

Sailor Moon Crystal is on Youtube, and that’s something you should not be happy about. Toei Animation uses viewcount as a way to determine how popular the program is. By watching through official sources, you send a vote toward keeping Sailor Moon around and renewing the series for new content.

Just want to add…if you just HAVE to watch Sailor Moon Crystal on your phone, both Hulu and Crunchyroll are available as apps, both on iPhone and Android. (Windows I don’t know about). I know Hulu is free, and Crunchyroll offers a 14-day free trial. Or if you know someone who has a premium account on Crunchyroll, ask them if they have any free guest passes (Crunchyroll kinda randomly gives these out to premium members). These allow you free access for I think 48 hours. (I have accumulated a ton of these since I got a Crunchyroll premium account. They do expire after a while, though, so don’t hold on to them too long or they won’t be any good. I made that mistake). Or if you yourself have some, offer to share some with people.

There are many ways to access said apps too. For example, I have Hulu Plus as a channel on my Wii, and I watched Episode 1 through there so I could watch it on my TV. The channel itself is free I believe. Also Nintendo recently released Hulu as an app on the Nintendo eShop for 3DS. You need an internet connection to use it, but I have used it to watch stuff and it works quite well. Crunchyroll also has a Kindle Fire app, for those like me who have one.

Anyway, that’s my 2¢. Support the official streams everyone!
