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 ;)

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.

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.

@  ▲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.

@  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.

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.

I think we should take it easy, wiki-wise.  Do a clinical write up, then add snark judiciously.  Although it probably does need a lot of "Windblade, exactly as you remember her from the G1 cartoon!" kind of stuff.

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.

Windblade got her cheap shot in because Megatron was clearly winding down into, "Okay, I suppose I'll listen to what you have to say" mode.  Fight's over...oh wait, Out-Of-Character Lass needs to get in her cheap shot.

 

Personally, I found that to be the worst Megatron voice acting outside of a fan production, and the textures on the scenery gave me TF:Cybertron flashbacks to the crappy skins they used to try to make Primus and Unicron look huge and highly-detailed.

It's pretty in-character for this version's deranged Windblade, though.

 

Heh, a lot of Cybertron flashbacks lately, really.  At least Cybertron's framerate didn't suck, when it wasn't using still frames anyway.

So for those who wisely resisted watching that piece of drek, but still want to know.

 

10 Maxima

9 Computron

8 Menasor

7 Victorion

6 Rodimus

5 Devastator

4 Starscream

3 Windblade

2 Megatron

1 Optimus

 

So of the top ten list, three are dead, two we technically haven't seen yet, and one is completely and utterly obvious. You'd think the Mistress of the Flame would at least take the ten spot for still being alive, even if she hasn't done anything so far.

When it got to Rodimus, I felt certain they were going to go into a "Har, Rodimus was LAME!" bit, but they actually didn't really talk about him at all.  Well, plenty of time for the actual show to do that, so I guess I'd better reserve my bile for a better time.

That stroppy walk before she slaps Megatron. That random giggle.

 

They made Windblade a generic anime tsundere!

 

 

Lots of bad reads/scripting this time. Particularly "Ah, the speaker who became a killer" exchange. Yeah, Megatron, you're a famous tyrant. I'm pretty sure everyone got you were praising her killing, not her speaking.

Megatron's been the best part so far. Meanwhile, we've still got very few combiners in these Combiner Wars...

 

Really, this should have been called "Transformers: More Than Meets the Budget."

 

Stop-motion would probably have been a better, more affordable way to do this that would allow for all the Combiners to be used in some way. Hell, I'd take Robot Chicken mouths if it helped tighten things up in other places.

 

Incidentally, regarding Megatron being his G1 model, it looked sort of like the Devastation model to me. That is, as G1 as G1 can be, but for a few tiny bits -- aren't those the fenders, or whatever they'd be called on a tank, of his treads on his backside? Very downplayed, but still.
