Count Zero?

@  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.

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)

@  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.

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

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 03:54 PM)

Think of all the horror and mystery movies that involve the bad guys cutting the phone line. Now think about how many people don't even have a land line to cut anymore.

@  Telly : (16 February 2020 - 03:47 PM)

its like that scene in commando. the bad guy has to get to a phone to call the big bad to tell him arnold isnt on the plane. that wouldnt happen today

Watching early episodes of the x-files will make you feel super old once you start to notice the techology they use, and the technology they lack.

@  Maximus Ambus : (14 February 2020 - 02:38 PM)

While browsing Youtube vids I read these comments: 'The X Files is such an underrated show' and another 'Brent Spiner is a underrated actor' I want to punch something.

@  Paladin : (14 February 2020 - 10:55 AM)

Valentine's day. Bummer.

@  Otaku : (14 February 2020 - 10:41 AM)

So is that an occasion for congratulations or condolences, Telly?  I see it as a good thing, but that is a matter of personal preference; easier for me to keep straight who is who when the names don't change. XP

@  Telly : (14 February 2020 - 12:48 AM)

damn. ive been going by "telly" on here for nearly 14 years...

@  TM2-Megatron : (11 February 2020 - 08:06 PM)

I've seen it. It didn't really deliver on the title

@  Paladin : (11 February 2020 - 05:28 PM)

we don't need to see that. we're living it.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 February 2020 - 03:42 PM)

Anyone seen an old British movie called 'The Earth dies screaming' it's like a Doctor Who serial minus the Doctor.

I hope you're right about the better person part: I read that JYB went to Vic for his blessing. I hope that's simply because Johnny is respectful of the craft and not because he's on Vic's side at all.

Until I hear otherwise, I believe its just a professional respect for another VA, as that's always the type of person he's came across as to me. Regadless of how Vic is as a person, he's a well known and popular VA, and a little professional respect should be permitted. And at the very least, his doing this might keep the Vic stans from going off on him too much as well.

Really didn't like this one, just kinda repeated the first one whilst being less funny.

I know TFS are burnt out on Abridged but if this is how they're going to round up the series I'm not really interested. The Abridged format worked for me because it had to follow certain confines of the source material and working around those/poking fun at them was part of the charm and measure of talent.

The idea of Buu just being a very loose adaptation whilst they basically chase Rooster Teeth's coattails...oh dear. Over the very long Cell Saga you could see them growing in confidence which is good but it was also the start of them over writing more of the canon with their own ideas. For me season 2 was the best because it balanced the canon with well done parody elements. Midway through season 3 they started altering stuff heavily and it just felt too fix fic for me.

They clearly want to do original content. Maybe they should just do that rather than turn the finale of something with a decade of audience investment into a prototype for it.

And it's over. TFS confirm DBZA will not be continuing in either form citing financial cost, the doors it closes for them and the fact it now hurts their love for the source material.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

This is really sad. Various people tearing into them, saying they exploited fans, betrayed their trust, no one cares about their non DB content, etc.

Really malicious.

It was a good run and a lot of laughs. People are cruel and demanding for wanting more when they themselves are very clear that there's nothing left to give.

 

I mean, I'll be honest I dropped their channel when they announced that no more DBZA, but that's more because the style of their other content simply didn't interest me in the slightest (Case in point - the above video and the fact they can't seem to focus a shot on whoever is talking properly). I dropped their gaming channel last year because the new, "looser" format wasn't to my liking. But I wasn't being malicious - I honestly wish them all the best in their future endeavors.

That video is very sad. I mean, how they bettay people exactly? Clearly, the did want to do more, but its been years in the making and the Cell saga ending so high, how were they going to top that. Plus, it has always been a fan parody and if they feel burnt out and can't find that spark in doing more. It is their choice.

 

How have they exploited anybody exactly?

 

plus, the lega hits they've taken for the abridging as a whole can't have been fun.

Because people are asses who want every tiny drop of "free" entertainment they can get and when someone says it's over, they scream betrayal.
