Netflix?
Unless I've made a mistake, that is not true, since Netflix is not free.

I'm not sure if they still offer it, but you can get 1 month in a free trial.

I just finished watching the latest dubbed episode of Jojo DiU, where Kira's new power was revealed...

Talking about One Piece.
Someone said that the Human Human Fruit is the worst devil fruit. While it isn't the best fruit, and probably deserves a spot near the bottom, he said its because it is useless when eaten by a human.
It explicitly gives its user to speak all human languages, which, while not super useful, is far from useless.
And it theoretically doubles its users strength, durability, Etc., Though that is speculation.
In addition, unless the Jailer Beasts are not human, the Human Human Fruit is probably the best awakened zoan ( Of a non-mythic.), since it would not give you animal intelligence like the rest.

I don't remember how Kira's power worked in the manga, but I don't think I remember being confused by it at all.

Heh. A random redditor doing a First Million Words project wrote a short story about shapeshifters who would turn into their spirit animal, and one turned into a human, becoming twice as human.
Definitely has a HFY angle, but I'd say it agrees with what you're saying. A human eating the human-human fruit would probably be a superperson.

'Course, twice a human in one piece world probably still leaves you basically cannon fodder tier on its own, iirc, so... yeah. Baseline human doesn't seem to mean much in that setting. Multiplier would help but you'd need like more than just double to be particularly meaningful without some sort of assistance.

True. Still makes it better than most zoans though.

When I was young, a buddy of mine had a relative (don't remember, it was either an uncle or an older cousin) who had a bunch of bootleg anime OVAs on VHS. I found a clue recently that let me track down one of 'em, a four-episode OVA that apparently got a followup at some point. I can't speak to the rest, since I'm pretty sure I only ever saw the first episode. Anyway, it's even weirder than I remember, and definitely very '80s.

Dream Hunter Rem is, in a phrase, Mahou Shoujo Loli Harry Dresden moonlighting as a one-character crossover between Scooby Doo and Yu Yu Hakusho, set in the universe of the Heavy Metal film.



As I recall it, the story of this OVA series is that it was originally intended to be made as a one-episode hentai OVA, but the premise generated enough excitement that the studio shifted gears and made a full, non-pornographic show out of it (at least "full" by the standards of 80s OVAs). That said, the apparent origin shows through from time to time.





Spoiler: *cough* (click to show/hide)



That was about 18 minutes of the first episode, which is 45 minutes long. I won't spoil any more if anyone's intended to go dig it up. Good luck, incidentally; you'll likely either need to buy a VHS off someone or yar har har, 'cause this ain't getting imported any time soon. What a goddamn trip, I'm so glad I found out what this was called.

According to Wikipedia your chronology is only slightly off.

They did release it as a hentai, which subsequently got popular, so they decided to reboot it straight after by re-releasing the first episode as a "special version" which is cleaned up. So the hentai version (listed as episode 0 on wikipedia) should be floating around too.

Fair enough, I was working on what my buddy's relative said about it the better part of twenty years ago. And he may well have been lying, since we were, y'know something like eight or nine. Might have actually had the uncut original in his collection too, hah.

e: I went back and did a spot of research to dig up the original episode 1, and it turns out that it was basically identical. They cut and edited maybe ~45 seconds of masturbation and naughty tentacles to make it suitable for TV broadcast (since anime could get away with full frontal nudity on daytime TV waaaay before Highschool DxD became famous for it). No wonder it became a cult hit, it was more crazy 80s art project with a bit of lewdness than repurposed hentai.

So, wikipedia says One Punch Man has been airing a second season in Japan.

Any bets on when (or if) us filthy gaijin will get a release?
