I drew some Dibs, mostly based on screenshots. Other characters snuck in.

Tumblr made it kinda small so I included a source link to a larger version!



I just found out from Eric Trueheart that after reviewing the story to the x-mas episode, some Nick execs brought up these criticisms. Because it was the last episode they were producing, they didn’t change anything, but added this scene to represent how they were simply ignoring those questions.

Wait, the execs asked why Zim wants to take over the world? DID THEY WATCH ANY OF THE OTHER EPISODES LIKE, ANY OF THEM



Invader Zim was a cartoon ahead of its time.

Running circles around Nick execs of the time.

"tea is just leaf water!" "yeah well coffee is just bean water!" wow, it’s. it’s like everything is made of things. this door is just wood rectangle. this poster is just ink paper. this lemonade is just lemon water. wow, it’s like you can combine ingredients to make things that are more enjoyable than the initial parts of the equation. sure is a magical world we live in

The real world has CRAFTING?!?

Watched Plague Dogs and Felidae. Plague Dogs is pretty bleak and depressing throughout. Felidae, not so much. But those dream sequences, holy hell



You reminded me to go find Felidae and Plague Dogs so I could finally watch those

In Keroro File: 017, Cats are the Ultimate Invaders! Meow watch and enjoy with great amewsment as Keroro experiences furst-hand what purrfect invaders cats are. I’m not kitten.

(Based on Chapter 206, Shonen Ace numbering.)

Like my subs? Then consider supporting me on Patreon, or sharing my Patreon page with others! Patrons get to see things like anime subs and manga scanslations early, among other perks, though Keroro Flash series episodes will remain available for all to see as soon as I post them. :>

So I was reading a Japanese fan’s impressions on Invader Zim, and…

"He looks like a maid frightened of a mouse XD"

The cute comments destroy me.

This sounds real close to the way I’ve been approaching my writing over the past couple of years.

In my view, a writer is a writer because even when there is no hope, even when nothing you do shows any sign of promise, you keep writing anyway.

Aha, I have been out of the IZ fandom for a few years at this point.  I seem to remember something about Zim using an inflatable Spork as a distraction but can not for the life of me remember if that was from one of the scripted but never animated episodes or from a fan fiction.

He always seemed like the kind of character who would boost about that blob while conveniently glossing over how it ate two Tallests.

The inflatable Spork was from The Trial, a canon episode which was never animated. You can read the transcript of it here. It’s pretty cool, and probably my favorite unaired episode!

Zim’s like “Yep my life sure is great” until the blob incidents play back.

Sergeant Keroro Movie 3, Part 2, on Dailymotion. In which Dark Keroro attempts to squish out all life.

Approximately one million years ago, when I was going by d2e6_260k on all my social sites for a while, I subbed Sergeant Keroro Movie 3. Mostly because it’s my favorite of the five movies.

Now you can watch it on Dailymotion! Here’s part 1.





Okay, Irk may have ruthlessly successful invaders, and Skoodge was the first to conquer his assigned planet in Operation: Impending Doom 2, in just two months.

But can any of them beat two minutes

Did IZ ever even talk about the point of Skoodge’s two month on Blort, seeing as the Armada showed up and just shot massive lasers at the planet’s surface from space in order to finish conquering it?

Also, Garuru’s not-a-real-invasion took less than two days from their initial contact to when they thought they had Keroro’s team beaten, so his platoon could also probably beat two months if they were actually trying for conquest.

On the other hand, I imagine that during Operation Impending Doom 1 Zim had done a great job of destroying Irk in only a few hours at most.  Wrong planet, but still impressive.

The organic sweep is the last part of conquering the planet. I guess it’s easier to do once the ruling species is wiped out/otherwise made non-resistant, because the organic sweep gets EVERYTHING still alive. Like flowers, and cute little animals.

And I’m sure you know Garuru and Zim are in entirely different dimensions of competence.

Ah, so the initial invasion phase would be mostly for eliminating resistance if the target planet has any means of attacking ships in orbit/space as well as removing any desirable organic lifeforms.

Very well aware.  I was just considering characters from both shows who could do a lot of damage in short periods of time.  (And so, to that end, also Momoka when she was temporarily given some of her father’s DNA and nearly took over the planet.)  Zim is incompetent, but he’s exceptionally destructive in certain situations.

Feels more like Zim’s doing the right things (with competence) in the wrong places. And a spectacular lack of foresight here and there, but who can’t relate to that?

Also some unfortunate accidents with an infinite energy-absorbing thing that killed two Tallests, and I don’t think he’s real proud of that.
