UFO Robo Grendizer Review
Say everybody, quick question. When you sit down and watch recent anime, did you ever find yourself thinking, "Boy, [insert older anime title here] was much better than this?" An obvious answer would be, "yes." And in some cases, I can agree. As time goes on, people start running out of ideas that others haven't already done and have a hard time thinking of something original so their audience won't get bored or constantly draw out similarities. If failing that, they can work on well-done reboots like Shin Mazinger Shogeki Z! Hen, New Getter Robo, Rebuild of Evangelion, Dororon Enma-kun MeeraMera, the 2004 version of Tetsujin-28, and hopefully the upcoming Sailor Moon reboot in 2013.
...What? Am I the only guy hoping to see that? I grew up on the series for crying out loud!
Yet, out of all these reboots made, such as the pretty good alternate universe sequel, Kotetsushin Jeeg, or the mediocre spiritual successor to Gravion, Dancouga Nova, and the great examples I listed above, why is i

Entitled Cheshire Cat
By Seth Vandenburg
Wonderlands mysterious grinning feline
His riddles, ever so divine
But on first sight to Alice
Who before, her heart never had malice
The cat was as strange as all the signs
As of now, the Cheshire Cat has changed
His fur, his riddles, all of him rearranged
Body a skeleton-form, a ring in his ear
And his grin was much worse to fear
His teeth, completely fanged
His sudden transformation, so very uncouth
All of him changed, body to tooth
No normal man would dare to delve
To fight the Cheshire Cats corrupted shell
Though Alice was calm, to tell the truth
They both journeyed together through Wonderland
Through treacherous hordes of enemies, band by band
The Red Queens domain, they soon appear
The end game forever near
Though sadly, the Cheshire Cat met his end by the Red Queens hand

The journal of Dr. Seth Michael "Victor von" Vandenburg, November 2012, Thanksgiving: It's been three quarters of a year ago since I have joined the Mecha Mental Hospital. It was a decent job, helping patients through their problems, listening to their stories… Thus far, I've only had seven patients that recovered with flying colors, probably because they just needed someone to talk to. These problems were never serious, so it was an easy job. At least, I used to think that.
I used to think that, until I had my eighth patient. This patient's name was Neon Genesis Evangelion.
Looking at the patient's record, this wasn't the first time it went to doctors for help. Yet the results were too diverse to even get a clear answer and the methods were sometimes… unsettling, as if detail and analysis were, for lack of a better term, foreign. It also came to my attention that some of these doctors would attempt to use forms of therapy that would rob the patient of its will, its original bei

Chapter 24: The Final Chapter of Finality! The Final Battle With The Final Boss Named Wizeman!
The heroes (and villains) find themselves walking through the darkest, blackest space they have ever seen in the realm of Obscurum. Surrounding the area were bubbles that shown areas of the world that were taken in by the darkness bombs. The heroes took only a few gazes at them before glaring at what was floating in the center of it all. Though it wasn't facing them, everyone knew who it was...
"So... You have escaped the fate of permanent trophication... I am surprised and impressed." Wizeman said, not turning his back. He chuckled a little bit. "But what I am really impressed with is the quality of your world. Just take a look. Cool, blue seas...

Entitled Rip Van Winkle
By Seth Vandenburg
Lady Rip Van Winkle
How beautifully your eyes twinkle
Your experience with your gun,
Matched only by how youve sung,
Shines brightly as you mingled
The next moment, youre filled with fear
You know that he draws ever so near
Try as you might to gain his obliteration
You couldnt avoid the realization
For Alucard is already here
Mien flower, with your petals all blue
What would you be able to do?
You try to kill the devil
But your power was below his level
And the grave was what you only brew
Just then, your hour was nigh
And as it came, you life slowly goes to die
Alucards bite tells you that he won
And your Nazi master says your work is done
So goodbye, mien beautiful Rip Van Winkle, goodbye
Dark Void TrailerA/N: To be honest, I've REALLY wanted to try doing one of these since Papa-T did really well with the other "Neo Earth Chronicles" game trailers. It takes place after all of the series but takes place in the distant future, so you'll see that some of the younger characters of the Neo Z-Fighters, Neo Outsiders, and Hero League Z are a little older. You'll find that some upcoming characters are in the trailer too, along with some original and returning characters. Anyway, please enjoy!Dark Void Trailer5 years ago in Scripts & Screenplays More Like This
(The screen reveals what looks like a scrap book with different pictures of Hero League Z, Neo Z-Fighters, and the Neo Outsiders. With the scrapbook were different child's toys, momentos, a couple of books, and even some spare outfits. The tune to the American McGee's Alice trailer is heard in the background as it goes around the area)
Melody's voice: If we're to fight Lavos, then this would have to be the wars to end all wars, right?
Coach Oleander's voice: I'll have to disagree with you on that, kid.

Prolouge: A Nefarious Meeting
The darkness... A truely mysterious entity. If one regular mortal were to find himself trapped inside this deep void, their heart would shatter with unbound terror and horror. But to those with hearts of evil, the darkness welcomes them with open arms. The same goes for one particular being in this empty realm.
This being was a man with raven hair, a stitch-like scratch on the front of his face, going from check to cheek, a green fur coat with the sleeves unused, an orange shirt with black rims, a blue undershirt, a cigar in his mouth, a golden hook for his left hand, black pants, and black shoes. This man is Mr.0 Crocodile, one of the Seven Warlords of the Sea. He looked a little bored, probab

Strong Bad: Whew! Man! Climbing castles really is hard work! (faces the screen) Now don't worry folks! I'm a trained professional when it comes to narrating stories like this!
Strong Bad then gets on one of the ceiling boards and balances on it.
Strong Bad: This is also hard work too. But enough of me! The story needs to be narrated! (clears his throat) We now go to later that day, where Vanessa is giving Prince Sonic some "advice".
On 'advice' Strong Bad moved his hands up and down to reveal he was being sarcastic. Then the screen goes down to the throne, where Vanessa was talking to Prince Sonic on the throne with Bubs standing near.
Vanessa: You can't go around giving royal jewels to commanors your majesty. Especially commanors that are street performers. You'll only encourage them.
Sonic: (with apple in hand) Well I wanted to encourage him.
Vanessa of course got a dissaproving look on h
Spongebob the Magnificent Ch.1We see a Russian-esque city where lots of toons and people alike are walking around, doing daily activities like shopping, chatting with others, and even cracking a joke or two.

Strong Bad (spitting out water): Okay, note to self: When entering a story, do not use the well as an entrance.
Then Strong Bad gets out of the well and faces the readers.
Strong Bad: Well folks, if you're wondering where we are, this is the old city of Cartoonia! One of the best places in history! It's known for it's shops, people, and heck, even its dear prince!
As he said that, Strong Bad passed by a shop, some people, and a huge castle. Then Strong Bad went off and leaned next to a cart.
Strong Bad: But those of course are only part of the story! The best parts of the story is the main character! The hero of our story! Speaking of which...
Then a gypsy cart drove by as Strong Bad noticed it. Then it started transforming into a
