Anyone into watching anime abridged series?

I've seen parts of some that were pretty hilarious. I love LittleKuriboh's work. Especially his Naruto one--way better than the other, more complete series that is so popular, at least in my opinion. I wish he'd add more to what he's already done with Naruto Abridged. His parody songs of Lady GaGa made me lol quite a bit too.

I actually met LittleKuriboh in person. He was present at a showing of the Yu-Gi-Oh! movie that came out...last year, I think? It was in New York City and my [ex] boyfriend and I went to see it and met him. He was funny as hell.

Anyway, there are a lot of Pokemon abridged series out there on YouTube as well. I've seen a few, but can't remember which one I liked the best.

So, yeah, any of you YouTube go-ers into these sorts of things?

Bumping this thread, because it's awesome and abridged series' are aweshum!

 

What made you like LittleKuriboh's one better?

 

I've seen DBZ abridged, which I thought was hilareous, and I'm going to check out a cowboy bebop one that someone has just started I think. I've also heard that the yu-gi-oh one is funny too.

That totally reminds me, I wonder if a new episode of 50% OFF! is up yet. The last one was... slightly disappointing.

Abridged series are basically when people do their own voice overs for a popular animated tv show (usually an anime) and poke fun at it, maybe within its plot holes or just develop their own inside jokes, stuff like that :)

know your meme does a really good job of explaining it: http://knowyourmeme....abridged-series

If you've ever seen Dragon Ball Z, here is a link to the first episode of its abridged version: https://www.youtube....h?v=2nYozPLpJRE

I never could get into abridged series, but I did really enjoy LK's Lady Gaga parody songs. An online radio station I really enjoyed played them a lot, and had him on air quite a bit too, he's a cool guy.

Would you recommend watching the original anime first? I feel like if I hadn't seen the original you gi oh I wouldn't have understood some of the jokes and references in the abridged series.

50% OFF! is constructed so that you don't need to know a goddamn thing about the original. And anything that helps to know to get some jokes, you can pick up contextually from the extra stuff.

Yes, it helps to have some grasp of the original series before watching the Abridged version.

 

Yu-Gi-Oh!: The Abridged Series by LittleKuriboh will always be my favorite one, but Team Four Star's Dragon Ball Z Abridged is brilliant as well.

Yu Gi Oh is awesome. Some other good Abriged series are SAO abriged, AOT abriged, Supernatural Anime abriged, and Hellsing abriged. All incredibly funny and worth your time!


Oh good! My favorite show...

Yeah someone introduced me to AoT abridged because I finally sat down to watch the series. It's pretty awesome, good comic relief to watch since the show is pretty emotionally heavy.
