Megas XLR's new episode is a Sailor Moon pardoy.

Goofing on everything from the odango to the long transformations.

I didnt see it, bit I'm sure it was another shallow rip, and yet again dumbed the intelligence of the Japanese who can tell the difference between a gamer who pilots a giant robot, and a gamer who co-pilots/screams like a hungry baby with a full diaper.

a list of ripping victims, according to research...

DBZ (many rips, all annoying)
Robotech (a good number of rips)
Voltron (a PPG monster is called "the robeast" which is the group of robotic monsters in Voltron, name is copywritten to WEP)
Sailor Moon (a number of shallow rips, but still very insulting)
Godzilla (the big Japanese toxic mutant cant evade stalkers these days)
Power Rangers (annoying rips)
Howard Stern (king of all media, some king, he gets ripped on more than the Bush family)
Pokemon (you gotta be kidding me, this is ripped on almost as much as Howard Stern)
YuGiOh (few rips, annoying as hell though)
Harry Potter (ripped rarely, but still growing)
Lord of the Rings (crappy and annoying, talk about multi tasking)
Star Wars (rips that are annoying, and dull)
Star Trek ("truck", "Buck", "Luck", "Tuck", all ammounts to the same end, SUCKS)
G-Force (old anime, ripped on a number of times, a bit distasteful)
The Matrix (backward bending 360 degree trick, GIVE IT A REST)
Titanic (always the "I'm king of the world" line)
Cowboy Bebop(Venture bros ripped on it for intro)
DC comics (more superman rips than muscles on Supermans body, how can you not see em when he wears the spandex?)
Marvel Comics (Hulk, Thor, Captain America rips everywhere)
TMNT (ripped on in the early 1990's)
Gundam (calling all gundams, new mission, annihilate Dexters laboratory to cease the constant gundam rips, mission is mandatory)


so many rips, it makes me feel 84 years old, and I have enough complaints to write a collection of novels based on my complaints alone. it's like no American media can ignore the temptation of ripping on other media. but yeah, SM being ripped on is an insult to me, one that is taken personally as a hardcore heavily dedicated SM fan.

Note: complaints to me directly about my post will be ignored, so please dont waste your time.
I appologize for offending anyone. I regret the wrongs I have commited, and am deeply sorry.

ADMIN MODE: No, it's not a RIP. It's a PARODY. There's a difference. Parodies are made in good fun, to poke jest at something. A rip off would be if someone made an entirely new TV show that was so much like sailor moon in every way, that it would lack originality. PLEASE pay attention to the posts before replying.

*Cut of unncessarily long list*
This is not a discussion about which shows were "ripped' and which weren't. Again, this is a discussion about a particular show that parodied sailor moon in one of its episodes. Get off your soap box.

It's an American giant robot show, basically. Damn good one, too.

This isn't the first anime parody it's done, either. One of the early episodes was a parody of Voltron/Gatchaman/Power Rangers where a team of color-coded people in funny costumes come to Earth to take out the Megas because they think Coop is evil (because of all the accidental destruction that inevitably follows in the wake of Megas). It's a funny episode.,

I caught the end of it on Saturday when I tuned in for YYH. It's nice to know that Sailor Moon is still getting the traditional parody treatment. I hope I can catch the full episode sometime, even though I don't really like Megas XLR. ^_^;

I'm not really into Megas XLR either, but I caught the end of it when I was waiting for Yu Yu Hakusho to come on, and I was wondering about the bit of this episode that I did catch, and thought for a second that I might be seeing things. Apparently I wasn't.

apparently we see things differently, as a male, the term "ripped" pretains to a mix of flattery and mockery, we guys do this all the time to show our place amoung eachother. hence the use of the term "ripping on others", if you watched South Park you'd understand. I had a few buddies back in college and we used to "rip" on eachother all the time, throwing "zinggers" and "pulling punches", if you understood the full spectrum of "slang", or "lingo", then you'd see there was no grounds to threaten me. but then again, I should've pointed out the slang use of the word "rip".

Slang amungst friends cannot be labled as slang for the entire gender. I know pleanty of guys who don't use "rip" and that snese and I know pleanty of girls who use it in that term.

This supiriority thing you're doing isn't cute. Please do not assume everyone who doesn't see things the way you do is utterly stupid or completely sheltered from sarcasim or slang.

She simply said, "You're on thin ice". That, "I can say what I want, but you're opinion has no value" attitude will not be tolerated. If you make a post and someone has a disagreement or addition to the post, they are welcome to respond directly to you if they feel it's nessary. And if they're out of line by means of attack a mod and admin will reprimand them, like now. Admin, mods, members -- we treat everyone the same and everyone is bound by the same rules.
And really, why shouldn't we be afraid? In case you haven't heard, life is terminal. Cigarettes will kill you. So will your cellphone. Your car is a deadly weapon and alcohol is a quiet killer. Don't lick the lead-based paint on the walls. Don't lick the back of a postage stamp and certainly don't lick any strangers! That will bring you down quickly indeed. Don't drink the water but don't drink less than eight glasses a day. Your enviroment is toxic, your natural resources are dwindling, your days are numbered, but what ever you do, don't panic! The stress, don't you know, will kill you.

you dont live near me, nor have you attended any schools I have, so you dont know about some of the local traditions and whatnot. please pardon the superriority complex, it's my psychological defence against people who attempt to bring me down. it developed early in life mentally defending myself from "bullies" by finding weaknesses and exposing them, also valuing in the human error factor and this and that, it eventually brings down the people who bring me down to the point where they cant be in my presence without feeling the deep desire to appologize. if you could see a physichal manefestation of my psychie, it'd be like the labarynth in the greek legend of the minotaur. dark, and with countless coices all leading to the traveler getting lost within.

back on subject: I didnt see that episode of XLR, but I dont think I wanna considering the "spoof"(oh god I hate that word). did anyone send an angry letter to the CN execs and writers?

Unless it's made by Cartoon Network (which I don't know), what's the point of sending riciculous letters to the Executives if they didn't make the show? Honestly I don't think the creators would care if a minority was offended when the majority doesn't have a problem with it.

You are far from being the only member on this board to have been teased in school. Can the "poor me" act, please. We don't care about your school life. What we care about is whether you can follow simple rules or not, which it appears that you can't. If you think we're being such bullies, there's nothing holding you here.

o_O; and to add to that..why on earth would you complain about a parody?! Parodies are completely legal, and are meant to be funny, not insulting. For crying out loud, it's for FUN. I don't think anybody else here is insulted by this.

RAPTOR 948, one thing I don't get is this
apparently we see things differently, as a male, the term "ripped" pretains to a mix of flattery and mockery, we guys do this all the time to show our place amoung eachother.
...so, you addmit that it's flattery (which I believe is a compliment), yet you're offended by it. Given Sailormoon's decrease in popularity, I'd be glad that someone spoofs it because it shows that people still acknowledge that it's around. Would you rather no one mention it so that it gets forgotten and people forget what Sailormoon ever was?

I hope I don't start a fight by saying this, but then you should be finding this forum to be a safe haven if you listen to the mods. I was teased a lot until I got to college, even about liking Sailor Moon by this one girl. Compared to that time, even when I've been scolded by the mods or had people disagree with my opinions, at least we're all Sailor Moon fans here and so far as I remember, no one's made fun of me on this forum.
