Look. It takes a lot to get me worked up,
but this time my boiling point is as low as it’s ever been.
The Copy Ninja Kakashi,
the man who copied one thousand techniques,
is about to go on a rampage!
It will come as no great shock, but we do happen to love some anime in this house. Well, to be completely honest, I love anime, and the Manimal – who, when we were first dating, mocked my obsessions with Cowboy Bebop and Full Metal Alchemist – has finally accepted into his life the truth and salvation that is…
His interest was finally peaked by the highly popular long-running anime series Naruto (based on the equally popular and long-running manga), which is currently on Netflix and stars such favorites as the reckless but lovable Uzimaki Naruto, the lazy but highly intelligent Nara Shikamaru, the stubborn but loyal team of Inuzuka Kiba and Akamaru, the tragic but extraordinarily gifted Uchiha brothers Itachi and Sasuke, and this guy: Team 7’s sensei, Hatake Kakashi.
I’m hoping to get Himself to branch out a bit between Naruto and Naruto Shippuden. I’ve finally sold him on giving Death Note a try (mainly because he wants to know why I’m so furious about the upcoming live action farce), and I think he’d really like Vash the Stampede so Trigun may be in his future, as well.
And eventually, after over a decade of mockery, we will come to Cowboy Bebop and Full Metal Alchemist. And he will find that he enjoys them.
Oh, yes. Yes, he will. 🙂
Kakashi is the first of a series that is currently planned to include Shikamaru, Itachi, and Gaara. Since Billfriend (i.e., Melissa) crushes on him hard, I finished Kakashi first so she can paper the walls of her office with his image. So, this one’s for you, Bill!
