I watched the first episode of Jojo when I had a friend over. Didn't watch any more episodes, because it was pretty bad.

Judging an anime on one episode is the dumbest thing you can do.

Surely there are dumber things. Gluing your eyelids shut, for instance. That's much dumber.

Also, first impressions should mean something. The viewer comes in expecting to get an idea of how the show will comport itself for the rest of its run from the first episode. If the first episode is garbage there's no point in throwing good time after bad.

Really, because I thought shitposting everyone was pretty dumb too? I wasn't interested in the show to begin with, so I don't know why I would continue watching when it didn't give me a good impression.

If I like a shows premise I'll give it 5 episodes. If I don't like it by the 5th episode, I'm dumping it.

Don't blame Golbez a bit even though I love JoJo. I dropped Kill La Kill after 3 episodes. Trash show.

Didn't Marvel have Doctor Octopus possess Spiderman for a year or so?


Yes, during Superior Spider-Man. Peter's spirit later took back over his body when Otto got wrecked by Green Goblin and realized he wasn't the superior Spider-Man after all and "deleted himself." His essence later inhabited a robot and later still got a new clone body that combined his own DNA and Peter's. Now he's the "Superior Octopus."

Quote:
Didn't Eddie Brock die of cancer?


No, he had the cancer purged from his body when he touched Mr. Negative whose powers combined with the latent symbiote cells in his body and turned him into Anti-Venom for a while. Then he got the Toxin symbiote and was part of some covert ops group. Most recently he got the Venom symbiote back.

I really liked the Superior Spiderman run. My library had the whole thing in single issue. I'd love to have an omnibus of it

I agree. I liked Superior Spider-Man pretty well also. I think maybe they dragged it out a bit too long, but it was a decent concept and a nice arc overall. First I heard of Superior Octopus though.

Sometimes one episode is indeed enough to know whether you enjoy something or not, especially if you're clearly not the target audience.

By the way, I think you missed my question on the previous page.

HKK: I was going to give Nana a shot since my sister already owns it, but she straight up told me not to because of the cliffhanger due to the writer's illness. Oh well still want to give Yotsuba a try

Cal: If youre still paying attention there's a good site for keeping shit straight.

http://crushingkrisis.com/crushing-comics-guide-collecting-marvel-comic-books/

That site has helped me plug some holes recently. Stuff I didnt even realize I was missing.
