Re: News of Anime in Japan

Translated from the original Japanese https://i.imgur.com/s2XBXcm.png Episode 3 was where it suddenly leapt from being down in the noise so far as sales and pre-orders went and launched onto a trajectory that had it cruising past even the big name series that season -- the tweet counts alone give an...

ISTR that Toblerone had acquired memetic status previously in relation to Japanese media; possibly having been used as a censor in some scanlation, certainly in some scurrilous use.

Crunchy UK goes straight from Onee-chan ga kita to OneRoom, which rules that one out. Myriad Colours and Mob they do have.

Because the original series was perfectly delightful (if you haven't watched it, you should), and people were hoping that the same team, carrying on in short order from where they left off, could do it again.

The first titles that come to mind that fit those criteria would be Akagi and Kemono Friends.

sadly, no overpowered magical-girl anime to my recollection That would have been Symphogear AXZ this season, if it had been where I usually look for these things (OK, that one you can argue is actually mecha musume ). And next season, there's YuYuYu S2 , which again you could argue is technically &...

Re: C.T.1290 versus Asuka. Examining the good and bad.

I just watched the dubbed. And I only saw the series at least twice now. And EOE just one time. The voice acting in the US dub is far less nuanced than the original, if only because of not having the same director. Even if you don't hear anything other than a clattering of mouth noises in Japanese,...

Re: Everything is Rockin'! [RML Thread 4]

That's a positive "can" -- the result of having saved religiously since I was little, having maintained a modest lifestyle since being a student, and, most importantly, not having moved house for over 30 years, and thus having long paid off the mortgage. It was only comparatively recently ...

Re: Official "What should I watch next?" thread

As the autumn closes in, I start to get that gap in the evenings between dinner and bedtime when I have the space to watch something again (rather than pottering around the house and garden). I do have a backlog, including series acquired over a decade ago and not yet watched, and things awaiting a ...

Back in the day I wrote this Start by taking 160km/100 miles as a round number for Giant Naked Rei (GNR)'s height (though actually she looks taller than 12 geofront diameters) which pretty much accords with your value, with the caveat that I was going for a round number and felt that might be an und...

Re: C.T.1290 versus Asuka. Examining the good and bad.

Of course some of that is Shikinami only. black I can't remember if we established whether C.T.1290 watched dub or sub. My first viewing I began with the dub and felt that Asuka was being played as a stereotypical strident redhead, but changing over to subs around the mid-point, my estimation of her...

We already have a lot of image decay on this site -- see e.g. this thread as just one of many rendered nigh incomprehensible by the loss of image hosting and originally uploaded by members now long departed.

Re: Wait so how did Spoilers die in EoE?

Whatever syncing to berserk levels did, followed by the harpies feasting, the gigantic explosion as the Black Moon gets ripped out of the earth would make a definitive coup de grace.

She's an emotionally damaged (and emotionally starved) teenage girl, living in a foreign country. That alone would be enough to cause problems, before we start in on the UHIQ and child soldier parts.
