Little Women: Now With Guns!

So I'm following a lovely little website located via Kids Lit that was created to accompany the upcoming PBS documentary on Louisa May Alcott's life. It's called Louisa May Alcott: The Real Woman Who Wrote Little Women. The site is beautifully done. There's a Timeline, great Links, a portion on Ms. Alcott's life, and so much more.

I'm searching through the Gallery of images, when I come to an odd link. In the lower right-hand corner is an odd little Anime picture. The caption reads, "March sisters as superhero anime stars."

Um. Come again?

Oh, it is true. So horribly wrongly true. And in an interesting twist, Beth is completely done away with. I guess it wouldn't be any fun to watch the show if you expected her to die each and every week.

That said: Whaaaaaa? What odd times we live in. What odd times indeed.

Oh. My. God.

Maybe "Sei" will die every week?

Says who? It works for South Park...
What? That's not the same? Oh, dear.

Maybe not, but I'm suddenly seeing South Park recast with the characters from Little Women. Or vice-versa. Whatever the case, Kenny's Beth.

Oh shucks. Say it ain't so.

Okay, clearly this is very very wrong.

But a part of me would like to see Anime Jo kick Laurie's ass. Is it just me?

Every week:

"You killed Beth--you bastards!"

It could work.
