No doubt people will debate if that’s better than “The Journey Starts Today” that kicked off Pokemon Journeys, but it’s all in good fun.
Remarkable, demonstrating a facility for realistic motion. Nothing quite like the distressed centaurette in animation before or after.
Sarge acquires a book which guarantees weight loss if the user follows three simple rules. Rule 1: Don’t eat! Rule 2: Don’t eat! Rule 3: When not eating – Don’t eat! Otto thinks this humorous, until a footnote in the book observes, “And that goes for your dog, too!” Ottto moans, as Snorkel clearly informs him, “When I don’t eat, YOU don’t eat!” Resolve, however, seems to go out the window, as mess call is heard again. Snorkel and Otto report first in line as usual, and again fill up their trays. Just when they are about to dig in, Sarge sees the words of the book’s rules superimposed over ever piece of scrumptious food. Reluctantly, he tosses away the tray’s contents, and those of Otto’s too. However, he turns to see Beetle and the others about to partake of their own daily rations, and his mood turns to frustrated anger. Now making his rule applicable to the entire company, Snorkel repeats to Bailey and the others, “And when we don’t eat, NOBODY EATS!” and throws all their food away. The platoon can see this situation is fast getting out of hand.

As for what’s next for Death Battle, that would be a break of sorts. They’re off until September, but in the gap in between the returning DBX will fill up the void. However, they did tease a shocking entrant for the next fight when it returns.
