It's Time For A Show Of Hands

Okay, here's the gig.  As many of you know, I devoted a good three months of my life to the horror that is Rio Rainbow Gate!.  Tens of thousands of words, dozens of pictures, and many hours of agony were spent chronicling the so-called adventures of Rio Tachibana as she strove to become the Most Valuable Casino Dealer.  After the suffering was over, I even revisited Episodes 02 and 03, which I didn't review the first time around, just to be complete.

At which point, I figured I was done with the whole show and I could let the healing process begin.  But an unfortunate search of my archives for something completely unrelated to RRG! called my attention to an unsettling fact: in truth, my writeup for Episode 01 doesn't match the same theme or tone of the later ones.  In fact, it's downright evil in its vituperation for the show.  To be fair, I hadn't seen the whole series yet, hadn't truly embraced the stupid fun of its lack of seriousness, and hadn't yet had enough braincells killed off to appreciate it all.

So I come to you, my readers, with a question: do you want me to go back and do a full-fledged writeup of Rio Rainbow Gate! Episode 01, or are you tired of visiting Casino Island?  Leave your decision in the comments, please. 

My soul weeps, for I suspect I already know what the answer will be.

3 I say do it - but only if you can somehow work into it some aspect of the World War II Pacific campaign.

4 If you can somehow include an animated GIF of the cut of Rio's bust jiggling as she walks, I don't care what you write.

5 So not only has RRG caused you to suffer some kind of mental damage, it's actively trying to spread, and manufacturing new opportunities to do so?  We need to quarantine you, and then hit you with antibodies.  I'll have to give some serious thought to what is the appropriate anibody for this affliction.  Rainbow colored ponies, perhaps?

6 No stopping this juggernaut, it seems. We should gird ourselves for the inevitable.
