Why did Rose have to teach Finn war is bad though? If you really needed that scene why was it taught to a child soldier? Maybe put Poe in Finn's place

Re: Star Wars Episode II - A New Thread

Oh yeah, the light speed ram! Which is funny because there were multiple times in other series ranging from comics, games and even the other movies where people would position their ships to block people from Hyperdriving. Didn't Darth Vader set up his ship to block that from happening at the end of...

Re: Star Wars Episode II - A New Thread

It's so weird that I just can't get into Episode VIII like everyone else and managed to enjoy episode IX. I think it's because by the time the Disney trilogy rolled around Star Wars had already broken me and I didn't have high hopes. Most of the serious dramatic things people seem to praise about VI...

Re: 2020 Positivity Thread (Good things that happened, you came across, etc.)

Re: 2020 Positivity Thread (Good things that happened, you came across, etc.)

I've been keeping up with the gym and classes! Something silly I would do at the gym is look up the official weight of anime characters and see if I could bench press them. I'm going to need to start doubling up on some of the lighter ones since I'm surpassing even the bigger ones at this point, hee...

Re: Top anime of the 2010s

I've been thinking of my top 10 for the decade. I'm sure this will change when I go home and think of stuff closer to the start of the decade but this is just my opinion for now. 1. SSSS.Gridman 2. Crayon Shin-Chan - Assault on the Dream World 3. Devilman Crybaby 4. Crayon Shin-Chan - Robo Dad Strik...

Re: Gainax President Arrested on “Semi-Compulsory Obscenity” Charges, Taking Nude Pictures of Teen Voice Actress

The terms of that loan seem so bizarre. So, if Gainax paid the loan back Khara would've received the rights to those two shows at the cost of just the time value lost of the money in between loan repayment? Why didn't Anno just buy the rights to the shows outright? Was Khara not financially sound en...

Re: Top anime of the 2010s

The problem is I'm sure a company that releases anime doesn't want you saying another company's release is the anime of the decade or even worse ... one you would have to download fansubs for! Off the top of my head I'd put two of the Crayon Shin-Chan films that came out over the last decade into my...

Re: SSSS Gridman - Studio Trigger (2018)

Pretty excited to see this not much to discuss except a few things that are spoilers Will this take place in the "real world?" I think it will be more like the tokusatsu than SSSS. If it comes back will we have a Gridman Sigma style situation where Akane works with the Gridman alliance in ...

Re: Shin Ultraman

Apple CEO Tim Cook posted a tweet showing he met with Shinji Higuchi recently. He specifically mentions SHIN ULTRAMAN. Honestly, Cook’s willingness to mention the film makes me think Apple TV+ might have already worked out a deal with Toho to stream the film (and other Toho project) outside Japan. ...

Re: Shin Eva - Official Social Media

It's a little odd because as someone who has watched Shinkalion and even got a toy that show is aimed at VERY young boys. We're talking like sentai age but it did get a pretty popular fujoshi fanbase like Inazuma 11.

Re: 2019 Positivity Thread (Good things that happened, you came across, etc.)

I started going back to school to get my MBA. It's really tough but I'm glad I'm doing it! Plus I've always felt like I was making poor use of my time and not bettering myself now but going to work, school and then the gym I think everyone agrees I'm actually being productive!

Re: EVANGELION BD-BOX Standard Edition Information + Pics

Do they have subtitles? I've picked up some series that had english subtitles based on american sets like Planetes and some series that didn't have a western release had english subs as well like Macross Frontier.

I had a big paper to work on over the weekend and had Dragon Ball GT on in the background for part of it. Got through the first 15 or 16 episodes and it was pretty fun. There's some obvious problems with it, most of which are in Super as well oddly enough like 'JUST TRANSFORM ALREADY!", but I l...

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

Apparently? I had no idea this anime was based on an 1968 show! I liked this new Bem, but I have no idea how similar it his to the 68 and 2006 anime. I've only seen 68 but I really like it; should be interesting at least to see this reboot. I'll post the similarities after watching it. We just had ...

Netflix is beholden to khara, who have no obligations to anyone but khara. And khara has every right to look out for their own interests, as opposed to those of fans who give an outdated adaptation priority over THE ORIGINAL WORK. I have no tolerance for the ADV dub. It creates confusion about the ...

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

Awwwww, guess I'll have to read the manga. I've really enjoyed the anime and got a few people at my gym to watch it even. My roommate and me even got a few goods from amiami like a sports bottle and keychains.
