Re: Controversial Anime Opinions B/

^^^ I think the reason One Punch Man and Mob Psycho are well regarded is mostly due to the excellent animation. Other than that, all you have is a decent story(a bit above average in Mob Psychos case) and a couple good comedy moments. . One Punch has got something pretty good happening under the ho...

Re: Controversial Anime Opinions Bl

I still like Gundam Wing. But from everything I've read about the franchise it's . . . decayed in recent years. Like people seem to hate it nowadays. Did it really not age that well? Too much beam spam, politics of the setting are bone-headed stupid, character motivations left me rooting for someon...

Re: Manga Recommendations. B/

Just noticed that Mob Psycho 100 is done. I wonder what One will do next? For Mob , the relationship between Mob and Reigen was tops for me; trying to offer someone else what they need to grow up, when you know you're not altogether yourself. Straddles two periods of developing maturity quite nicely...

Re: Gundam (In All Its Incarnations) Mk. II B/

Gundam Build Divers I thought this show was turning the Gundam Build Fighters formula into an advertisement for a game they could realistically make. Like a Gundam MMOFPS/TPS I was... sorta right? As in it's kind of an advertisement for the new Gundam Breaker release. Which isn't a MMO at all, but ...

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now Bl

I'm talking more about how well animated and choreographed they are. And that's what I mean; well choreographed to me would be you don't see free actions taking place, everything is moving together as it should be, with all the people involved moving as you would expect to foil the sword guy, only ...

Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens : A town of Hitmen. Said hitmen have colorful personalities and get in silly(and sometimes not so silly) adventures. The way the action goes through the lens of various characters reminds a bit of Durarara but Hakata has a much more defined set of main characters and is easie...

Darling in the Franxx I love how this show visually tries to be Evangelion . This week, they went a step above, and made a homage to Misato walking down the NERV corridor in EoE. I don't like the mecha designs though; they're Star Driver faire with anime faces (when activated). https://thumb.ibb.co...

Re: Net Neutrality Vote on Dec 13th! Bl

Not at all. There is indeed unequal handling of traffic using different protocols , through the mechanism known as QoS - Quality of Service. This is what enables streaming and VoIP to work reasonably well within constrained bandwidth. This is entirely different from treating the traffic of differen...

Re: Net Neutrality Vote on Dec 13th! Bl

Why not both? Why not Net Neutrality Because Net neutrality pretends non-neutral behavior is always wrong, when it isn't . Supporting it is a headwind to the industry developing itself; decreasing the pace that technology & services are created. It misunderstands entirely that a use case exists...

How much unfairness do you judge to be OK meanwhile? Would your view change if it happened to affect you personally? It already has; because I understand I don't use internet data rates at levels necessary for me to have the same speeds as business class in my area. Streaming is high-demand, but it...

Re: Net Neutrality Vote on Dec 13th! (#SaveNetNeutrality) Bl

Many people are too poor to just move. You can set a limit case for when a central authority needs to step in; you're mistaking a direction I'm pointing in for a destination. I just don't see the need for this here, because of the stakes and the time horizons. Given time, this will solve itself. Ei...

Re: Net Neutrality Vote on Dec 13th! (#SaveNetNeutrality)

Your whole argument is based on the assumption of consumers having power More than voters at least, yes. Consumers to a person, do far more to shape the market than voters do to shape the political landscape. It's only the median voter who really has any power in the latter. Markets meanwhile have ...

Re: Net Neutrality Vote on Dec 13th! Bl

I would rather that development be hamstrung by a government which has in mind a neutral approach to it, and over which the voter has some slight opportunity to have a say, Consumers are more rational than voters; both because they update their preferences in real time (not every 2 or 4 years), and...

Re: Net Neutrality Vote on Dec 13th! Bl

ISPs have monopolies and maintain regulatory capture (especially by exclusivity contracts with municipalities in exchange for building infrastructure) and the benefits of a free and open internet with high speed and reliability is too great to leave in private hands. Yes, so it's a municipal dysfun...

This is really crazy. I'm not a Kenshin fan but it's a big popular shonen battle series. I know quite a few people who grew up adoring it and still do. I mean if you think about it over 90% of anime fans get introduced to the stuff through some shonen battle series. Shows like Dragon Ball in the 90...

Re: Net Neutrality Vote on Dec 13th! (#SaveNetNeutrality) Bl

The 2015 decision didn't establish net neutrality - it was the default state of the Internet (and the FCC had fined a company that broke it as early as 2004, one year after the term was coined); in 2015 the FCC made clear that ISPs in the USA were to be regarded as common carriers. Put simply, the ...

Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans I was a latecomer to the whole Gundam craze (as I so often seem to be with anime series--I was also late to the party with Pokemon and Evangelion), so the first series I watched was Advanced Generation--which isn't as terrible as everyone says.

Re: Gundam (In All Its Incarnations) Mk. II Bl

SEED does have way too many Gundams. I was thinking the same of Zeta; the antagonists kept changing their suits, I couldn't keep a visceral "power level" scale in my mind for whether they were close to a Gundam or not. With Seed Destiny I didn't quite have that problem, as it was establis...
