"Five orphans with a spacecraft battle a lipsticked maniac from the Crab Nebula and his unlikely big flying robots. No one gets hurt."
In 1972, the anime action-adventure show Kagaku ninja tai Gatchaman
(Science Ninja Team Gatchaman,
) premiered on Japanese television. Featuring graphic violence, extensive profanity and a transgendered villain
, it was one of the most popular animated series of its time. Envisioning similar success in the US, Sandy Frank Entertainment
acquired the series in 1978 but deemed it too graphic and shocking for domestic audiences. So they hired two Hanna-Barbera vets to "
" totally bowdlerize
the episodes with new scripts, voiceovers music and effects, animation, etc., at a cost of $5 million and turn it into a brand new show: Battle of the Planets
. Here are the original 1978 Battle of the Planets feature film (in 7 parts,)
and the first 19 episodes of the show,
all available on Youtube. [more inside]

including Coldcut and Big Dada podcasts, a Ninjacast which delves into the record crates of various ninja artists, and of course a Solid Steel podcast with 60-odd mixes available.

The makers of N
) have been working on a new game - known thus far as TNG (that would be 'the new game'). They've been rather tight lipped about details - untill last month when they revealed a few juicy bits
of what we can expect.

Your clan was annihilated, now you're out for revenge. You are Ninjaman
. Pretty awesome little 2D side-scrolling Flash game; the trailer
(.mov) gives you an idea of the gameplay. Oh, and you can customize the keyboard controls in "Options." Possibly the best part is watching your enemies impale their own idiotic selves on spiky traps.

putting you to sleep? Battletoads
as challenging as Animal Crossing
? If so, consider saving up for an XBox and/or Ninja Gaiden Black
, expansion-of-sorts to the infamous Ninja Gaiden
(the game so hard it kills your friends
). Due out in September, the game's creator claims in an interview that roughly 1% of American players will complete the game's new "Master Ninja" difficulty. You can read the rest of the interview here
or grab the outlandishly large trailer
. Is there a legitimate demand for games this challenging, or is this just a case of misguided "difficult==better" thinking?

Have you checked your
humors today? Not the gunky jelly stuff
in people's eyes
, the other kind
Are you melancholic
, or choleric
? Are you a salamander, gnome, nymph or sylph? Earth, water, air or fire
? Elf, Ninja, Pirate or Dwarf
? (arrrr! buckets of blood! flagons of phlegm and barrels of black bile!)
If nothing else, the theory of humors adds to one's arcane vocabulary.

All right, so maybe everyone's seen this -- I have no sense of just how much of a meme it's become -- but a Mefi search didn't turn up any previous links, so hey. This, ladies and gentlemen, is The Official Ninja Homepage
, with the divine URL of "realultimatepower.net." And, err, yes, I do think there's irony involved.
Hi, this site is all about ninjas, REAL NINJAS. This site is awesome. My name is Robert and I can't stop thinking about ninjas. These guys are cool; and by cool, I mean totally sweet.
The "Big Pimpin" MIDI gives it a nice touch, I think. (I also recommend the Scripts. They're like Hemingway.)
Personally speaking, I'm officially done with the internet now. Nobody's ever going to make a better website.

Netninja Photo Contest
There's a little more than a week or so left in the contest, and I doubt it's going to be the next All Your Base, but it looks like fun. Hell, I'm entering.
