My dear island guests, I have been a busy bee lately and I had little time to prepare some posts! Luckily it is tag week which means I can now update my backlog on all sorts of tags. One of the most fun and unique ones was Dewbond’s give it a Light Novel Title Challenge and soon after I did That Random Editor nominated me for the challenge again. Well I feel creative today.. and in short supply of time so it’s time to do it again! This time I chose to ruin some of our favorite childhood shows! But this time we do it a bit differently. I will start with my Light Novel Title.. then discuss the show and then reveal what the original title is. Can you guess them all?! Let’s play!

(My sunset colour scheme) After which a small paragraph of why I chose this title will follow. If you can guess the correct anime by only the purple thing you get 2 points. If you need to read the text you get 1 point and if you need the picture right before the answer you get half a point! Leave a comment telling me your score and win absolutely nothing!

That Time I became friends with an Edgelord and my Spinning Top got Possessed by a Dragon!
This show used to run on tv when I was a kid. Following the adventures of Tyson who fights for fame.. and the safety of the world by letting it rip.Along with the juvenile delinquent Kai and his phoenix, Martial Artist and cat fanboy Ray with his tiger and… well Max and his…purple turtle, Tyson has to compete along with his spirit dragon to be the best spinning top team in the world…which of course also saves the world.
This was such a fun show in the day and I watched all of the orginal series even getting a fair while along in the “spin” off series Metal Fight. Not sure if it’s an actual spin off but it’s still fun to call it that!
The Answer was: Beyblade
All of this is to sell cards?! Grandpa’s Soul got stolen by a 24 year old loon. Now the voice in my head must cheat at cards! A lot!
Promotional anime usually aren’t very good, however many card battle anime are surprisingly well done. The first season of this show (not including season 0) is NOT really that good. There are barely any rules, there is no rhyme or reason and every single match was just a big rule of cool kind of thing. A card destroying the actual moon.. but also a tank tunneling through mazes or swords of revealing light that hold up a castle whose floatation rings get destroyed.. so it falls down on other monsters… what?!
Pegasus and his silver locks and majestic disposition is the antagonist of the first season. Yet did you know that that time he was only 24 years old? I’d always imagine him way older. How can he call the protagonist and the deuteragonist boys when he still is one himself? Regardless. .. fun anime but i call hax!
The Answer Was: Yu-Gi-Oh!
Why is that Referee everywhere? Our Storekeeper is A Master thief! He lost this medal and made me a robot-battler!
Ah more memories. The adventures of Ikki Tenryou fascinated me when I was kind of to old to be fascinated by it. Along with his trusty robot pal this battle of the week kids show brought so much joy to my world! Each episode we saw another opponent which often included dudes dressed up in skin tight latex suit with a big horn on their head. I am pretty sure one of them was a baby!
Unfortunately this show was dropped by dutch tv before I ever could finish it. It was dropped 6 episodes into the new series with a new villain and a different kind of robots! I have since finished this show but this was one of the few shows that actually had a very solid dutch dub!
At least the dutch people pronounced Erica like it should and not go for that weird E’Ry’Kah stuff. She isn’t an elf you know!
The Answer Was Medabots!
I didn’t wish for this! My best friend got blown up and in anger .. I became an Aryan man.
Now this show was well on it’s way before the titular event happened and while I do not think this show had any ill intentions in it’s message .. I live to ruin your childhood. In this show we see a dark haired character we all know and love transform into a character with blond hair and blue eyes. Even referring to this state as ..surpassing that of his regular standing. “Super People” as of sort. So there at least enough similarities to damage your childhood.
In reality famous mangaka Akira Toriyama made this form a reality because it took him to much time to colour in the protagonists hair. He got tired of doing that.. so he came up with a transformation of sorts that allowed him to leave the characters hair blank and he would just have to do the outline. It’s a practical effect that would have made the last part of the story so much easier to draw. As originally Planet Namek was supposed to conclude the series. Of course e wall know more would follow so that blonde hair really turned into a time saver. Especially when the hairdo’s got bigger!
The Answer Was : Dragon Ball Z
That’s not a Jelly Filled Donut : My ten year old son got a mouse to travel the world with! Now the mafia is hunting him down!
Ah even more childhood memories ruined. In this anime set in a wonderful world each ten year old gets either a frog, a turtle a lizard a baby fox or in this case a mouse before they are exiled from their homes trying to win a tournament.. tournament that mostly hold contenders that are twice their age. Sometimes they are even younger?! Of course it is dangerous to walk through a world filled with monsters all by yourself.. so take this!
So our protagonist is awarded with his first battle pet that turns out to be so strong a criminal organisation that shows a lot of similarities with the Mafia is hunting him down to gain that creature. This same organisation tries to use a clone of the “ancestor creature” to rule the world. The adventure would kill the protagonist several times (currently around 8) and most seasons do not get a very happy ending!
The Answer Was : Pokémon
