Seems like they're on some sort of cycle again. The last letter was awesome.
Remember that your first Goomba boldly you walk? When Mario touched that mushroom being brought up more largely remember that you are surprised? Miscalculate your jump that pit remember that it falls?

I'd have to agree with Max. I almost fell out of my chair laughing after reading that one.

My compliments to the chef for the perfect headline:
Quote from: Deezer
Another mailbag already? I don't believe it either.
Also, I love that Sapphira has never actually seen any anime.  She is the Goddess Virgo, and I hope the streak continues.  I agree with the last letter being pretty awesome, too.  Other good things that came from this mailbag:  reading Deezer's NSMB review; feeling happy for the people who actually sent in new, previously-unknown to TMK information; and LD's as-per-usual witty and interesting responses--along with everyone else's of course, but this LD character strikes a particular chord with me.
Today's actually... nobody's birthday!  Quick, hurry up and make a baby!

:D

Oh, I may be a Virgo, but I'm no goddess. A princess? Maybe... ;P

I know Princess Peach, and you're no Princess Peach.  Superlative Princess Palmolive possibly.

I'm Princess Peach (Pt_Peach), and of course she's not me! But that first letter about SSBM sucking, that was wierd.

I never said I was Princess Peach.

And you're not Princess Peach; you're pt_peach! :P

Superlative Princess Palmolive... that made me lol.

The mailbag is back! Awesome! I have been meaning to write in about something... but I forgot what. ^^'

Dear DeadAwake: ? A lot of anime is good.
That was a joke.

Yeah, what's wrong with anime? It's just like any normal cartoon, just done by Japanese people.

So, if Sapph watched anime, she'd no longer be your vision of a "goddess Virgo"? That's stupid.

I think he was saying that Sapphira was a virgin to anime, hence the Virgo. I dunno.

Anime is not "just like any normal cartoon". There are fundamental differences in storytelling methods, animation style, and intended audiences. It has a different name for a reason.

I've tried to write a post arguing that, but I can't. :P Though yeah, anime is usually serial and other cartoons have different storylines in each episode. That's really the only TRUE difference I can think of, besides animation style. All cartoons can have intended audiences, though.

Well, oftentimes animes are much more sophisticated than American cartoons. Come to think of it, are there any actually serious American cartoons? All I can think of is like, live-action drama-type shows.
That was a joke.

Many of the superhero cartoons are serious, like Superman or Batman, for instance. It may just be the DC and Marvel ones that are serious, though.
Other than those types, I can't think of any others off the top of my head.

I'm a little scared to hear the respone to my letter in the previous mailbag.  "Sup, ma bro Chuppason!" What in the world was I thinking?! X__X XD

Edit: Okay, that wasn't so bad.  Wow, you guys were totally losing it! XD I'm a little worried though that I shamed you.

Professor Deepthrought asked whether or not I was going to write that fan fic I mentioned before (I think the one where I said TMK people would go to the real Mushroom Kingdom) and my answer is no.  I'm not going to write that, but instead I hope to work on a new fan fic that could be 100 times better.  DT, you can check out "Mario and TMK unite!" in the Story Boards if you want a story like that. ;)
