EagleEyes’ Round Table – Soap on a Rope

Posted on Jun 10 2010

Once again EagleEyes takes 91.8 The Fan on a journey with a brand spanking new edition of the Weekly Round Table. This week we OM NOM NOM on assorted confectionery, beat anime Piñatas with sticks, and ignore Haruhi’s very existence. Also EagleEyes asks for your help in picking the winner of the Poké contest!

Weekly award – Week 6:

– Soap on a Rope Award – Daily Bathing

Dear fellow Otaku, with convention season upon us I would like to take this opportunity to remind you of the importance of personal hygiene. Deodorant is your friend. K THX BAI.


Now for the Round Table rules: As usual, each participant is given 6 questions covering various aspects in anime, manga, and Japanese culture. Each individual then has to provide their opinion on the said issue. Finally, I stir fry the contents together with soy sauce and serve on a bed of jasmine rice .

    Our Participants today are:

  • Little Devil – Earth!
  • Jubilee – Fire!
  • TehScribbles – Wind!
  • Yugi – Water!
  • PiSsEdSiLeNtBoB – Heart!
  • Arra – Go Planet!

If you were to watch an anime cross over show, what two series would you combine, and why?

Little Devil – One Piece and Naruto. That way they can have an epic battle and we can finally have an answer once and for all which is better, pirates or ninjas.

Jubilee – Cardcaptor Sakura and Yu-gi-oh! … I always wanted for there to be a Clow Card game…Maybe they could make one if they combined the two…NO! Even better! Clow Dice Monsters! :O

TehScribbles – Case Closed, and Pokemon, why? I wanna know who killed Pikachu, I bet it was Togepi with the knife-wrench.

Yugi – If you were to watch an anime cross over show, what two series would it be and why? Angelic Layer and Excel Saga, They are two of my favorite series and think it would be awesome to see them together.

PiSsEdSiLeNtBoB – PiSsEdSiLeNtBoB would like to see a mix of Negima! and G.T.O (Great Teacher Onizuka), they could name it GTN. It would be a perfect match as Onizuka would be crazy over the girls and Negi could learn how to ride bikes instead of his staff.

Arra – It’d have to be Saiyuki and Inuyasha. Come on, what could be better than the Sanzo Party destroying the filler in Inuyasha, Naraku? HA! Larin could take him.

Are you a fan of Japanese and other Asian foods? What are some of your favorite things to eat?

Little Devil – Only Japanese food I tend to eat is snack food (pocky), however, I do enjoy eating authentic Thai and Korean food. Spicy chicken gui has to be my favorite.

Jubilee – Absolutely love it. Chinese is by far my favorite cuisine, ever since I was little I have loved it. I find that the flavors tend to be more complex in Asian cuisines. Not only that, but the colors are very vibrant in many classic dishes, which is much better than the bland brown most fast food seems to be. The more colors in a dish, the healthier it is for you…usually. ^.^ …Oh, and I love seafood above all, so Japanese cuisine is also quite plentiful in that area….Sushi ftw! 😀

TehScribbles – Yes, although I can’t eat sushi for the life of me, believe me, I have tried. Many times, they’ve ended in disaster, namely Arra taking my picture when I try. My favorite Asian food? Well there is this little Asian place down the road in my town; I love the Spicy Korean beef there! It’s so good I order it way too much; in fact the restaurant doesn’t even take my order anymore because I ask for the same thing. I also enjoy the hot and sour soup they offer with it, my mouth is on fire when I leave the place.

Yugi – Are you a fan of Japanese and other Asian foods? What are some of your favorite things to eat? Yes I like it however I don’t really know what I do and don’t like although pocky is good.

PiSsEdSiLeNtBoB – PiSsEdSiLeNtBoB enjoys Green Leafy Kimchi and soy sauce meat with rice.

Arra – Ooooh, yes yes yes!!! I love Sushi, a lot of times I bug Scribbles to go get some even though she doesn’t eat it. I love maki too! Yum yum yum… You made me hungry EE >>

Do you have any collections? A particular type of object or merchandise from a particular series? Figurines? DVDs? Fan girls?

Little Devil – I have a large collection of Pokemon paraphernalia that I gathered back when it first came out that I is now taking up residence in my closet. Which isn’t limited to all the promotional toys from Burger King, trading cards, plushies, figurines, pokedex, and the list goes on.

Jubilee – If you want to count Yu-gi-oh! Cards than yes, I suppose so. Sadly, I don’t really have the money for any sort of real collection at the moment, as most of my spare cash goes towards many different series instead of all of it being focused on one series.

TehScribbles – Actually, my biggest collection is my Kos-Mos figures from the PS2 video games, Xenosaga. I count thirteen: three from EP I, two from EP II, one from missing year, two are from EPIII and three are swimsuit edition…I know what you were thinking and no. I also have two Shions, but no one cares about Shion anyways.

Yugi – Do you have any collections? A particular type of object or merchandise from a particular series? Not yet I don’t.

PiSsEdSiLeNtBoB – PiSsEdSiLeNtBoB has a collection of Negima! stuff, especially Nodoka since she’s as quiet as Bob.

Arra – Um… Well… I collect japanese fans actually, from no particular series, I just think they’re pretty.

Which anime character piñata would you like to beat with a stick? Do you hate them or would you just like to see what candy they would have inside?

Little Devil – Miroku from Inuyasha just because he deserves it for all the women he harasses in front of Sango. That and you never know what you could get from that hole in his hand….

Jubilee – Naruto…BELIEVE IT! I broke your nose and it is spewing out lollipops!

TehScribbles – I’d say Atoil, but she’s more Video game. So my vote goes to Matt or Mellow from Death note. Face it Matt has no purpose and Mellow is just a trap. I know what kind of candy would come out of mellow, but I’d still beat him anyways.

Yugi – Which anime character piñata would you like to beat with a stick? Do you hate them or would you just like to see what candy they would have inside? Hmmmm definitely would have to be a Icchan piñata just so I could see if he drops angels instead of candy.

PiSsEdSiLeNtBoB – PiSsEdSiLeNtBoB would like to have a Shizune piñata and when you bust her open, bacon would fall out in all varieties, fried, candied and etc.

Arra – Sakura… From Tsubasa… She’s so useless!! I despise her…

Anime of the day: The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. Thoughts, feelings, opinions?

Little Devil – Never seen it, but from what I’ve read I would probably watch a few episodes to see if I actually liked it or not.

Jubilee – Sadly, I have not seen the series, although I have seen several clips of it. It looks pretty whimsical and entertaining…so might have to try it out sometime when I’m in the mood for that kind of show. 😀

TehScribbles – I feel like this anime tries to be outside the box too much. Not really a bad thing, but Haruhi is just one of those people you want to smack upside the head for being too silly. I loved Kyon though, one of the most level headed guys I’ve seen in an anime in a long time. I like how Kyon was able to make a whole episode of him just getting a heater for the club room. THAT takes talent.

Yugi – Anime of the day: The melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. Thoughts, feelings, opinions? I liked it can’t wait to see the endless 8 just for the lolz.

PiSsEdSiLeNtBoB – PiSsEdSiLeNtBoB snipes Haruhi Suzumiya, the end.

Arra – From the few episodes I’ve ever seen, I’m really not a big fan. I guess I really can’t judge it all too well. But it’s TOO random and silly. I guess in some cases that could be good, but I never caught the point of the anime because of it.
