The WWE's Championship Continuity Problem

Hello Dwellers and Welcome to the Basement

One would think that the WWE would not have a fragmented history with its championships that would allow for someone like me to go 'not so fast' when 'history is made' 

  • The New Day's 478 reign as WWE / RAW Tag Team Champions is the longest overall tag team title reign of all time in the WWE, however the history of the titles they held only go back to 2002
  • Demolition's 475 day reign as the World Tag Team Champions still stands as the longest reign for that particular championship, its history was discontinued when it was unified with the WWE Tag Team Championship in 2010
  • The WWE makes it clear that the titles are separate entities 
  • The only way the WWE Can 'fix this' is by adding onto the discontinued history of the World Tag Team Titles saying that all tag title reigns following the unification match add onto it, which they won't do.
  • A similar problem will present itself as it relates to the RAW Women's Championship, a title introduced this year with Charlotte winning the title 4 times and Sasha Banks 3 times
  • The WWE will 'push' the fact that Trish Stratus's record of 7 reigns as WWE Women's Championship will be 'broken', however there is no connection between the title she held and the one featured on Monday Nights.

Blue Seed: "Can You Feel It?! I Can't Ignore It! An Ominous Premonition of Catastrophe!!"

Hello Dwellers and Welcome to the Basement...

We are as you can tell, Talking Anime with episode 12 of Blue Seed titled "Can You Feel It?! I Can't Ignore It! An Ominous Premonition of Catastrophe!!"

  • Original broadcast date was December 21, 1994 (So perfect timing that I did this review on December 21, 2016), The English Premier was December 11, 1994
  • This episode is basically a 'bridge' to the second half of the series, with Murakumo going forward with his masters plan to summon something from the secret dimension of the Aragami
  • We got a few flashbacks of Kusanagi thinking of Kaede and some heavy reinforcement as to why he is willing to go up against Murakumo, even though in this episode he one-shotted Kusanagi twice
  • Speaking of Kaede, with how she's brought up in this episode, it's quite clear she's returning and not on the TAC's side
  • There is more of a connection between Momiji and Kusanagi, she felt when he was injured during the first encounter with Murakumo
  • The TAC is basically pointless in this episode, even though Mr. Kunikida has an idea of what the centipede aragami is wrapping around three buildings, he doesn't really act on it.
  • The centipede aragami is pretty basic, outside of being able to roll itself up into a death wheel, a pretty mundane monster
