Also guys don’t forget that Korra is still airing episode 8: The Terror Within this Friday 8 p.m. (ET/PT)!

If you haven&#8217;t heard: Korra has been taken off the air of Nickelodeon http://www.nickandmore.com/2014/07/23/nickelodeon-pulls-five-legend-of-korra-premieres/.
I had a feeling that this would happen since the leaks but fear not guys! this could actually be a good sign. Digital=more accessible=more viewers. Can&#8217;t wait to hear what they have in store for the remainder of season 3 and season 4

Some context: entering this season, no woman had completed a televised course in either Japanese or American Ninja Warriors. I’d also argue that ANW’s qualifying courses are harder than any Stage 1 course on either.

This woman is a fucking badass. First woman ever to advance!

I’m not crying you’re crying

Favourite anime director: Shinichiro Watanabe

"It actually kind of sucks having to be a director. Once you do it, you discover how hard it really is. This is no kind of a job for a human being, let me tell you. I think I ought to quit, but I can’t really do anything else!"

If I was burdened with the task to constantly be a genius creator/director of animated TV series, I might feel this way, too.
