Cameo is one of the characters from Okashina Okashi. Hakim: Hey! I object! This doesn’t make any sense! If I died in 1897, how would people in 1997 know to come to 1897 to kill me in the first place? Isn’t that a plot hole? Death: No…this is a plot hole. (I’m Death, by the… Continue reading Not Quite Victoria’s England 92/120
Cameo: Kryten, from Red Dwarf. Hakim: Oh, I see. Okay, it’s not a plot hole. So what is it? Kryten: I’ve never seen one before — no one has — but I’m guessing it’s a white hole. Hakim: A white hole? Death: No, no, ignore the mechanoid. This is a paradox: a state that contradicts… Continue reading Not Quite Victoria’s England 94/120
Loved the speculations on Integra’s fate. Hakim: If I’m dead, what happens to my granddaughter? Death: Her father marries a nice British baroness instead of your daughter. So she’s born a sweet white girl with no business sense. Hellsing collapses, then England. Finally, the world. But it really doesn’t matter, as the timeline is going… Continue reading Not Quite Victoria’s England 98/120
One last blast o’ cameos. Drosselmeyer (Princess Tutu; the fact that he was named after the Nutcracker character is just a bonus tie-in), writer of stories, and Helios (Sailor Moon), guardian of dreams, are from essentially the same realm.

The Four Horsepersons of the Apocalypse meet for lunch. Famine: Nothing for me, thanks. Death: Ooh! Do you have milkshakes, with those crazy straws? Famine: has adapted to the industrialized world… Continue reading Good Books 33/33
Meanwhile, back at the barracks… Pip: Mmm, mignonette… War: Ahem. Hello, soldier. Pip: Gah! Don’t worry, he’s still dreaming.
War: So, is that a gun in your pocket, or are you just happy… …to see me. [CLIK] Pip: Does that answer your question? War: Hang on, did you have two guns in there?
Pip: Listen, babe, security takes precedence over hotness. How did you get in here? War: Shoot me if you like, soldier. It won’t matter. This is a dream, after all. Pip: Why should I believe you? War: You haven’t looked down recently, have you?
Pip: Whoa. Okay, this is the last time I eat cheese on toast before bed. Unless you’re some kind of furniture-controlling night creature? War: Nope. Pip (fingers crossed): Soul-sucking sex demon? War: Sorry, soldier.
War: Let me introduce myself properly. I’m a manifestation of the force of War. You can call me Scarlet. Pip: Scarlet? That’s the name of my new gun. War: That’s right. I’m also the spirit of your Pancor Jackhammer. Pip: My gun doesn’t have a dirty old man for a spirit? Score!
