Double Decker! Doug & Kirill – First Impressions (Episodes 1-4)

What’s it about? A police constable who dreams of being a hero finally gets a chance to join an elite detective team. Under the guidance of his cool and philosophical partner, they try to put a stop to the new super drug – Anthem.

What are your first impressions? There have been some very funny moments so far. Definitely enough to keep me going. In the first episode, Kirill stripped and emerged from a cloud of smoke pretending to be a time traveller in an attempt to confuse a criminal long enough for Doug to take him down.

Favourite character so far? Doug is amazing. I love his dry sense of humour… although I don’t think he’s trying to be funny. Whatever, he’s hilarious and really keeps Kirill on his toes.

Who do you want to see more of? We need more Pink. She may come across as a dangerous loner, and for the most part, she is, but she’s also calm and calculating. In the dubbed version, she’s also voice by Jamie Marchi which is always a good thing. She is badass!

Are you going to continue watching? Yes, definitely. There have been more than enough funny moments to keep me interested. I think Kirill is going to take a little getting used to, but the rest of the characters more than make up for him.

One Piece (Season Eight)

After a brief encounter with a giant frog and a Sea Train, the Straw-hat pirates find their way to Water Seven, and it’s just in time. The Going Merry is crumbling around them. Luffy, Nami, and Usopp take the gold from Skypiea and trade it for cash, but walking around with that much money isn’t a good idea.

After a couple of failed attempts, the Franky Family manage to steal the money from Usopp. He’s unable to stop them and takes quite a beating. Luffy, Zoro, Sanji, and Chopper pay them a visit and make them pay, but the money’s already gone.

In among all the activity, Robin has disappeared. Then the mayor of Water Seven is attacked and the Straw-hats are the prime suspects, but Franky wants his revenge too. On top of that, a mega-storm called Aqua Laguna is racing towards Water Seven and threatens to put most of the city underwater. Continue reading “One Piece (Season Eight)”

One Piece (Season Seven)

The Straw-hat pirates left Skypiea by sailing over the edge and plummeting back to the blue sea. A helpful sky octopus latches on to the Going Merry and slows their descent. As the air pressure changes, the octopus struggles to remain inflated and ultimately drops them down to the sea.

They land in the middle of the heavily fortified Marine base, Navarone. There the Straw-hats split up and sneak around the base, trying to find a way to get back to the open seas. Base commander Jonathan, a devious strategist has plans to catch them and restore glory to his crew.

On a strange island where everything is long, the Straw-hat pirates encounter the Foxy pirates and agree to a Davy Back, a series of games where the winning team can steal a member of the team and add them to their crew. Continue reading “One Piece (Season Seven)”

The Straw hat pirates will be pushed to their limits and beyond as they come up against Eneru and his priests. Can they come to terms with this strange new land and the weird people that exist there? Continue reading “One Piece (Season Six)”

Their next adventure takes them into the Rainbow Mist, a mysterious land that exists outside of space and time. There they must join up with a group of children who call themselves the Pumpkin pirates if they are to escape. Continue reading “One Piece (Season Five)”
