The Culling is Upon Us | Winter 2020 Anime TKO
And now it is with a heavy heart that we must humbly bring you this most sorrowful conclusion to the first third of the Winter 2020 Anime TKO. This… is the Culling.
EvilBob: We’re here today to honor the passing of these four fine ani-
EvilBob: Oh, right. THREE. Three fine anime… and one joke. We did not know them for very long. But we will miss three of them, all the same. They left us doing what they always dreamt of – serving in the name of entertainment.
Voyager: They were unfortunately taken away from us before their time in the great Winter 2020 Anime TKO Culling. But it is how they would have wanted it. We will now open the floor for those who wish to offer a few words of remembrance.
EvilBob: *sniffle* Seton Academy. You were such a joy to be around. The humor you brought was an inspiration. You always knew how to keep me laughing… and checking over my shoulder to make sure I was the only one in the room. Your animal facts were always… so disturbing. Like… wow. Oh my god. Really disturbing. Super disturbing. Thanks for that, ya weirdos. But even then, you will be missed.
Voyager: *sob* Female Hyenas have-
EvilBob: THAT’S QUITE ENOUGH OF THAT, THANK YOU!
Voyager: What can even be said about this anime? It was so revolutionary. Featuring one protagonist that was somehow equal parts charming and insanely annoying. And another one that’s about as interesting as mayonnaise. Like… wow, dude. Really. Every time he opened his mouth I was as bored as a 2×4. But still. It was an interesting little show. Even if its treatment of human dismemberment was way too casual for my liking. Hats off to you, In/Spectre!
EvilBob: The one thing I can say about In/Spectre… is that I appreciated how much of a crap it did not care about the laws of physics. You keep doin’ you, up there in that big anime list in the sky, In/Spectre. Respect.
EvilBob: Ah. ID:INVADED. You were a weird one, weren’tcha? But, you know what? I appreciated it. You were bold. Except for when you weren’t. But besides that, you were really intriguing. When you weren’t being totally infuriating. However much we might’ve disagreed with some of your decisions, you stayed true to yourself. Good for you, man. Good for you.
Voyager: Props on being a police procedural anime in an age where that doesn’t seem to be very common. Even if you did have to fall back on a gimmick that… ultimately kinda got old a little too quickly. You had good ideas, ID:INVADED. And while we may have had our ups and downs, I want you to know that you definitely aren’t something I regret spending time with. You dove into our deep subconscious and brought something fresh and new to the scene. Great work.
EvilBob: You gonna…
Voyager: Yep. *snaps fingers*
Voyager: We got nothin’.
EvilBob: Yeah, it just wasn’t worth the effort.
Voyager: Or, put more simply.
V&E: Bye Felicia.
Voyager: So very sad. They were so young. Taken away from us much too soon.
EvilBob: Aye. But we must continue with the TKO. To honor their efforts and remember their bravery. They will forever be with us. In our hearts.
Voyager: Yeah… ‘cept Orphen.
EvilBob: Oh. Yeah. Screw that thing.
Voyager: All right. We out! Look forward to the next TKO article! Thanks for reading!
EvilBob: And letting us waste your time.
Voyager: Keep up the Awesome!
EvilBob: And Keep it Classy.
Voyager: Take Care!
