The Opinionated Animorphs Book Guide!
« on: September 15, 2009, 01:07:02 PM »
Hello everyone. My name is Pop Arena, and I have opinions. Don't we all? Yes, but mine are better then yours.   One of the things I have a strong opinion on is Animorphs and how largely ignored it is by major science fiction fans (present company excluded, of course). While it was never a perfect series, it certiantly was a unique one, and deserves another, highly sarcastic look.

And so, Pop Arena presents the Opinionated Animorphs Book Guide!!!! on Youtube! Hopefully about once a week (though I can't promise anything with the way my work schedule is) I'll post a detailed look at an Animorphs book with a healthy dose of analysis and an extremly unhealthy dose of bad jokes.

It's the theme song to a Christian anime called "Superbook" which I used to watch all the time as a kid. I wish I could've included the entire thing, it's pretty rocking.

By the way, LOVE the reading voice. I cracked up. It was like "Is Batman reading to me out of Animorphs? Does Batman read Animorphs?"
