Ok now that is quite scary

Imagine... Zac being totally serious, yet funny, and gets sucker punched by girl who I have not yet horrifyingly imagined to see who they are going to pick. And him holding a gun in the battle field and piloting a giant robot. It's gonna be really funny just looking at him if you never watched FMP before.

Does this mean we'll soon have a thread about why are there no asians in the adaptation of full metal panic live action movie?

Besides where are they going to find an actress with blue hair to play Chidori?


for your fyi, not all anime characters with pink/blue/green/purplr hair means they really do have that hair color.

in Princess Princess (according of what they say in the anime/manga), Green/Blue is black, Blonde was Brown, and Pink was red. :/ you can't judge a book by it's cover.

I was kinda joking btw
also "for your fyi" made me lol a little

This is just sad, sad, sad. Plz dont watch this. Spread the word to all otakus you know to boycott this. We have a pretty extensive network, if we all try our hardest I'm sure we could make it flop.
