The OGs of my blog will remember my mentioning this series a few times in the past. Most notably, it made the top 5 in my Top 10 on awful anime I came to love. That, however, was back in 2015, when my status as a person was still within a process of trying to overcompensate the right brain with the left. On a complete whim (literally), I decided to rewatch the series I remembered fondly as a lovely trainwreck of stupidity and sexuality. Does it hold up? Obviously not, but how much… not?

It’s been talked about a few times leading up to this post: that sort of essence of quality that I saw in my younger days. There was a reason I liked these movies at one point in time, if only for how easy it was to digest them. Generally, these re-watches have all been drastic positive-to-negative shifts, with my current self nowhere near as keen on the juvenile and occasionally offensive material these not-quite-current-age comedies provide. I expected much of the same with Fired Up!, and to my utter surprise, it wasn’t that terrible! Continue reading “Day Ten: Fired Up! (MotM 2020)”
