I watched L.I.L.Y.Cat on there a while back, it was surprisingly good.

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 February 2020 - 08:47 PM)

@Dekafox, no DTP, but they DO have LILY Cat ;)

@  CORVUS : (21 February 2020 - 08:46 PM)

For me, it's "chocolate therapy".

Stupid, delicious Ben & Jerry's.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 February 2020 - 06:42 PM)

Ahh. I remember watching Bubblegum Crisis 2020 or whatever.

@  Dekafox : (21 February 2020 - 06:25 PM)

Next you'll say they have Dominion Tank Police and L.I.L.Y.Cat

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 February 2020 - 06:06 PM)

Bubblegum Crisis, going by several shouts down.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 February 2020 - 05:38 PM)

BGC?

@  Bass X0 : (21 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Enjoy the fudgy icing of this Hostess Cup Cake!

@  Telly : (21 February 2020 - 02:31 PM)

harlock is on tubi as well. not dubbed though :(

@  Rhinox42 : (21 February 2020 - 01:19 PM)

Blugh, the english dub of BGC is atrocious.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2020 - 07:02 AM)

I might need to update my software, or they face regional limitations, cause I found no evidence of either.

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 10:31 PM)

DUDE! Starcom and COPS are on Tubi too!

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 09:29 PM)

Spiffy! The english dub of Bubblegum Crisis on Tubi. It's gotten so hard to find these oldies on modern streaming services.

@  Nevermore : (20 February 2020 - 08:44 PM)

And now I know and now I know and now I know that you can hear me, know that you can hear me, know that you can hear me.

Oh, oh, people can you hear me? People can you hear me? People can you hear me?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (20 February 2020 - 03:33 PM)

Already did. It didn't take long.

@  Dekafox : (19 February 2020 - 06:14 PM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 February 2020 - 03:53 PM)

Oh boy, here we go.

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:34 PM)

Or do Japan's cultural values vary depending on exactly who you're trying to shut down?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Could it be that, perhaps, these different cultural values might lead to a different approach seeming appropriate?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Hm. Back when we were arguing about the Legends comic, I seem to recall being repeatedly told that Japan had different cultural values than the US (and therefore anyone who had a problem with anything at all was wrong to voice that opinion ever).

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:23 AM)

Plus, as much as I hate to admit it, every single anime character is built to suit the audience's tastes so they buy more merch/do other things that allow $$$ to flow in the production committees direction, so the authenticity is certainly not for representation's sake.

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Both those anime air at midnight and are aimed at a very specific audience in a whole other media landscape. Major projects have press releases about almost everything, and there are groups just waiting to pat anybody on the back for doing what they want (GLAAD, HRC, etc)

@  B-Fox : (19 February 2020 - 03:16 AM)

It's funny that a friggin' anime about zombie idols and an anime about a school of anthropomorphic animals can have really positive trans characters WITHOUT a press release about their inclusion in the series prior to the episodes airing or having the creators announcing it on social media and patting themselves on the back for doing a thing.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2020 - 10:26 PM)

Vegan meat needs bacon

@  Paladin : (18 February 2020 - 08:43 PM)

vegan meat must taste delicious. they're grass-fed and regularly exercised....

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Vegans are better than kids if you don't talk to them. They'll keep the lawn trimmed anyway.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 06:02 PM)

Do you want vegans? Because that's how you get vegans.

@  CORVUS : (18 February 2020 - 04:33 PM)

Hook up your sprinkler system to a canister of healthy organic carrot-juice. The kids won't be able to get off your lawn fast enough.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 03:59 PM)

Just use the hose.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 03:52 PM)

Ask bing. It'll be a FAR more effective answer.

@  TrnsfrmGod : (18 February 2020 - 03:26 PM)

Google, how do I get those durned kids off my lawn?

@  TrnsfrmGod : (18 February 2020 - 03:26 PM)

Please ignore.  Old man here apparently doesn't know the difference between the "Search" field and the "Shoutbox" field.

 

Also doesn't know how to delete from the shoutbox

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 07:33 AM)

Huhn. Penny arcade was right, the division 2 is literally 3 dollars...

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 February 2020 - 11:05 PM)

Oh, Wicked Cool Toys got the Halo toy license. This is a big year for Jazwares

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 February 2020 - 07:02 PM)

iTunes/Apple TV has the complete Cowboy Bebop series for just $5!

@  Paladin : (16 February 2020 - 07:20 PM)

business is booming.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 February 2020 - 06:49 PM)

SAmsung has you covered. Exploding phones.

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 PM)

Modern problems require modern solutions.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 PM)

Japan seems to have a tradition of murder things where cellphones facilitate the killing instead. Like King's Game and Doubt.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 05:17 PM)

Or there's just conveniently no reception, or all of their phones are dead at the same time. Or they're just stupid and forget about them.

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 04:41 PM)

Now the slasher villain has to go and knock over the nearest cell tower before butchering horny teenagers.

Updated brackets: http://i.imgur.com/xOTpWKm.png

 

I put in the final picks of those who I originally said were wrong in their bracket analysis (BScorpinok, GB Blackrock, Rosicrucian), since it was apparently the other 25 of us who were wrong. It ended up not mattering since two of them already had all their picks eliminated, and Blackrock had only Defensor, who lost. So no points for them anyways.

 

For everyone else, I just gave them a victory if they had Computron or Liokaiser winning, regardless of matchup. The only two people the screwup potentially cost points are NovaSaber, Orionpax44 and SoS, since they were the only ones who had both Liokaiser and Computron in their final 4s. 

 

Leaderboard:

50 - SoS

46 - TheSupernova

45 - Galenraff

44 - NovaSaber

 

Only two people have a champion remaining - Gryllid (Computron) and Fenix Twilight (Liokaiser). With the final round being worth 12 points, Gryllid wins if Computron wins (53 points). Fenix Twilight is too far back even if Liokaiser wins, though (41 points with a victory). So it's down to SoS and Gryllid!

Son of a. COME ON DEFENSOR YOU'VE GOTTA WANT IT!

At least as far as my bracket goes, this is a fairly good approximation of the NCAA tournament. I do alright, get tantalizingly close until some bullshit derails it all. :D

ALERT: Everything is fine.

Final bracket: http://i.imgur.com/anSzY9U.png

 

Fenix Twilight was the only one who had Liokaiser winning the whole thing, but 12 points is only enough to bump him up to a tie for fifth.

 

SoS is your winner.

The thirty-four people on this board who voted for Liokaiser are dead to me...

 

Kidding! I'm amazed I got as far as I did -- I was sure I'd be mathematically eliminated in the first round.

 

Congrats to SoS, and thanks to Shattered and anybody else with a hand in putting this together!

So, conflicting information here. Is the prize going to the bracket winner (congrats by the way, SoS) or are we holding a drawing?

SoS was the prize winner.

We kept a little wiggle room this year in case a bunch of people tied, but I think SoS is the clear winner, both in terms of the points earned on his bracket and in terms of his interaction with the event. :)

Woohoo! We're back online. I totally missed all the recent posts. Thanks guys for the kudos, really appreciate it. :)

 

As I've mentioned before the two Liokaiser and Computron are two of my top three combiners. So I was extremely happy that both of them were at the finals. I really hope Hasbro, Takara, or even FunPub gives us an update soon especially after this event's and the recent increase in IDW's exposure for Victory characters. We already know Computron is coming down the pipe so I'm not too worried about him. :)

 

Those CW Battlecharger customs are so to join my Stunticon ranks when they arrive. I've always liked the idea of having extra members for the Combiner sub-groups.

I admit at the start of the event, I got the impression it was just "prize will be awarded to someone randomly drawn from the pool of everyone who made brackets." But I have no problem with it going to the actual winner.

They might have been expecting more then one person to actually 'win' The whole last half of this was almost pure upsets.
