@  Nevermore : (12 June 2021 - 07:08 PM)

Carefull, he is a Bass Xo.

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 June 2021 - 05:53 PM)

Aw, it's not even a shiny.

@  Sabrblade : (12 June 2021 - 05:27 PM)

A wild Bass X0 has appeared!

@  Bass X0 : (12 June 2021 - 05:20 PM)

I didn't even try this time.

@  Nevermore : (12 June 2021 - 03:43 AM)

8ass XÖ has hijacked this conversation.

@  Bass X0 : (12 June 2021 - 03:37 AM)

Its Bass X0. I named myself after my three favourite Mega Man characters - Bass, X and Zero. I did consider going with Vile Bass X0, but that would have been going too far.

@  repowers : (11 June 2021 - 11:29 PM)

Bass XO has been trying to reach you about your car's extended warranty.

@  Echowarrior : (11 June 2021 - 09:25 PM)

Do not taunt Bass XO.

@  wonko the sane? : (11 June 2021 - 09:02 PM)

Please consult a technician before using Bass XO. Do not operate Bass XO while consuming alcohol.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 June 2021 - 04:48 PM)

Nine out of ten doctors recommend Bass XO. The last doctor is on my list.

@  Dekafox : (11 June 2021 - 01:51 PM)

Bass XO is available at these fine retailers.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 June 2021 - 02:01 AM)

Bass XO is not to be confused with Bay Sexo.

@  Fenix Twilight : (10 June 2021 - 08:38 PM)

It's good to be back, after that outage I think I'll try to post more.

@  Steevy Maximus : (10 June 2021 - 12:16 PM)

Bass XO is backward compatible with the Sega Master System.

@  Donocropolis : (09 June 2021 - 05:37 AM)

Bass XO has 9" long, dagger-like teeth and a 12,000 lb. bite force

@  repowers : (08 June 2021 - 07:26 PM)

Bass XO doesn't feel pain. He can't be reasoned with!

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 June 2021 - 02:57 PM)

Bass XO has no known weaknesses.

@  Nevermore : (08 June 2021 - 06:15 AM)

Base XO is definitely unstoppable.

@  tigerhawk : (24 May 2021 - 07:42 AM)

I'm making progress with tweezers. It's no great loss given Dai Atlas minor roles anyway, I really do prefer this mold for Titans Overlord and Sky Shadow,

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2021 - 09:57 PM)

Had that happen once. Drilled a 1 mmhole in the peg and superglued a rivet into it for something to pull on.

@  tigerhawk : (22 May 2021 - 09:44 PM)

pliers, superglue, heat, nothing has worked so far but I had to take yesterday off due to pfizer side effects.

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2021 - 07:04 AM)

is there enough plastic sticking out to yank it out with pliers?

@  tigerhawk : (21 May 2021 - 01:05 PM)

Oh great my Legends Dai Atlas fell and the gun snapped in two, the handle is stuck in the port on top of the vehicle mode.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2021 - 04:14 AM)

Also, our compound terms are legendary among foreigners, because we throw them together as a single word, with no spaces and usually without hyphens too.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2021 - 04:12 AM)

You can have straightforward sentences that are a literal word-replace translation of stuff like "I go to school", but once you throw in perfect tense and prepositions, you end up with insane constructions where the main verb is at the very end of a very long sentence, so you have to listen to the whole sentence until you have any clue what is going on.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2021 - 04:10 AM)

And I stand by that. German sentence structure can be utterly insane.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2021 - 04:10 AM)

Fun fact: When I was teaching German kids English, I kept telling them that English grammar and especially sentence structure is more logical than German.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2021 - 01:17 AM)

e.g. Lion-Eating Poet in the Stone Den was by a Chinese guy pointing out the weirdness in his own language, rather than the frustrations of somebody learning Chinese as their second. So English isn't the only case where native speakers might enocunter funky issues.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 May 2021 - 01:17 AM)

Then I shall concede, and retire.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2021 - 01:14 AM)

I'm not sure if that's even all that unique to English.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 May 2021 - 01:07 AM)

Which is why I specified those comparing learning it to learning other languages as a second language.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2021 - 01:04 AM)

And I don't think "ancedotal frustration" means much, considering that every language has complaints from people trying to learn it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2021 - 01:03 AM)

The fact that these stand out certainly makes Japanese "not a smoothie". And it's only consistent within more recent loanwords. Older ones stick out in a different way.

Turns out there's YouTube uploads of the 1980s Mahabharata show.

I want to see this, but I'm not sure about getting back into the Mahabharata so soon after reading through it. Especially since the show is also really long.

Feels like it's kind of consistent with the theme for a moon cancer to be this broken.

Well giving what BB was like in CCC, it would have been consistent if the Moon Cancers' "gimmick" was breaking the game in certain circumstances. Though I can see why the game doesn't do that.

Probably easier and cheaper than using actual animals.

Considering that these tend to get chopped or stabbed, using actual animals would probably be against some sort of broadcast standards.

That's a horrendous anachronism, right up there with medieval farmers growing corn.

To be fair, most Arthur things are comically anachronistic, considering that they didn't have things like shiny plate armor and chivalry in sub-Roman Britain.

In my head canon, Camelot having shiny plate armor and chivalry are examples of how Camelot was more advanced and enlightened than its neighbors even though the original creators of the myths didn't intend intend it that way, and those things were lost and needed to be rediscovered after Camelot collapsed.

How much longer until some one creates an isekai that's just straight up World of Gor? The worst isekais are bordering on it.

The Gor series repeatedly depicts men abducting and physically and sexually brutalizing women, who grow to enjoy their submissive state.

 

Wait what the heck did I just step into.

 

Is this entirely about Redo of Healer because I'm pretty sure most other LN-based anime titles aren't like that. They might be seedy, but they aren't outright brutalistic. Even Death March was just using the slave thing so all the girls were more sadmoe.

 

In addition, from this wikipedia page that I've had to actually read now, Gor is very different in tone and reasoning from stuff like revenge fantasies ala Redo or if you really stretch it, Shield Hero. This seems like one of those false equivalencies that catches steam based on the hope that people never check either source.

 

Personally I'd think Redo of Healer is more a tame Rance than anything. Probably also vaguely by actual R18 anime, which has been pretty out there in premises for basically it's whole run as a genre.

 

Hey @Logicron ; I hope this doesn't come off as some sort of rebuke on you or personal attack of some sort, because I would like to hear your reasoning for such things. I personally have gone into stuff thinking certain shows were worse than they are, but I learned from people who actually bothered to check them out what they actually were overall.

 

In addition, I personally find a bunch of stuff objectionable but I'm not looking to set up a licensing place where I determine what everybody shovels into their head as long as the content is made ethically (this extends more to animated content than anything else).

 

Anyways I thought the Y.Aoi video was rather cute and so I wasn't expecting it to inspire this particular fork in the road.
