I'll agree with you on that.

I fugured

@  Steevy Maximus : (25 May 2020 - 01:37 PM)

I'm actually sad Cyberverse won't get another season. 2 and 3 (of what I've seen) have REALLY nailed it in being fun little actions shows, like the Sunbow series.

@  Rycochet : (25 May 2020 - 01:00 PM)

Yes.

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 May 2020 - 12:52 PM)

I'm waiting for Animated season 4. Am I insane?

@  wonko the sane? : (25 May 2020 - 11:22 AM)

I'm waiting for the next season to show up on netflix.

@  Sabrblade : (25 May 2020 - 10:59 AM)

Many of us have already watched the rest of the Cyberverse episodes since the whole third season aired in the UK last September.

I just saw the 8th episode... omg

@  Bass X0 : (25 May 2020 - 01:28 AM)

Already seen it online.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 09:42 PM)

Who's excited for tomorrow? The only thing that makes Monday worth it is the Cyberverse episodes .-.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 May 2020 - 12:30 PM)

Welcome. I just came into that trick myself recently, so happy to share.

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 12:05 PM)

Thanks, wonko the sane? for the tip with the cloning. That helped a lot!

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 12:02 PM)

Heheh.... yes... I don't think a sniper would be very good at making a vaccine... 0.0

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 11:48 AM)

All right! Cloning my old HHD to an SSD and then swapping out the drive was successful, it would appear. Finally.

@  Bass X0 : (24 May 2020 - 11:30 AM)

Scientist Perceptor is. Sniper Perceptor less so.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 10:51 AM)

Perceptor would be more responsible.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 10:48 AM)

Oof x~x

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 10:45 AM)

He'd cure the virus, but he'd probably commit at least two crimes against nature and weaponize a third in the process.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 09:39 AM)

'Horrible consequences' would most likely happen with Brainstorm...

Totally. And Percy's not even human. XD

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 06:50 AM)

Can't do much worse than our current government, I say go for it.

@  Sabrblade : (23 May 2020 - 10:13 PM)

Little do we realize that the Perceptor in question is the Mini-Con combiner. :p

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

He would!!!

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

Horrible consequences? I... Doubt that would happen.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:55 PM)

Even if he would come up with the answer by tomorrow.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:54 PM)

I'd rather not deal with the horrible but unintended consequences of that.

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 09:52 PM)

Lets let Perceptor make a vaccine for COVID-19. Who agrees with me :)

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 08:43 PM)

I'll take your word for it. =D

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 May 2020 - 08:42 PM)

Although the TV edits of Robocop do contain some hilarity

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 May 2020 - 08:41 PM)

I can't think of any instance where sanitizing a film is a good thing.

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 06:42 PM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 May 2020 - 06:39 PM)

I'm watching Predator on Starz! That means it has all the language and gore uncensored!

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 12:49 PM)

*watching everyone argue* O^O

@  fourteenwings : (23 May 2020 - 10:22 AM)

By that logic we might as well just get rid of the Shoutbox wholesale! I'd rather have like 3 or 4 things stuck for a week or so than one person dominating the whole thing (no offense Nevermore).

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 May 2020 - 03:30 AM)

I would argue that "full of something one doesn't read" and "devoid of reading material" are functionally identical at the end-user level. :D

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:58 PM)

If it emptied, it would become empty.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 07:53 PM)

It would be the same effect as if the shoutbox simply emptied once or twice a week.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:27 PM)

I don't see how having walls of the same guy on top whenever I go to any page on this site is "refreshing".

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 06:10 PM)

I don't know, I find the occasional flushing of the box to be refreshing.

@  Telly : (22 May 2020 - 04:20 PM)

but its gets annoying seeing a wall of text from him that takes up most of the shoutbox

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 03:53 PM)

Eh, that's just Nevermore.

@  fourteenwings : (22 May 2020 - 12:11 AM)

@Nevermore: Good rule of thumb is if you feel like you need not just multiple statements but also multiple shouts to make a point, best just make a thread.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 05:36 PM)

Dude, do you just, not know when to stop?

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:35 PM)

Instead of "I have only ten hours to get all my stuff from place A to place B", it's more like "I temporarily stored 90% of my stuff in easily accessible place C in my spare time, so now I have ten hours to get the remaining 10% of my stuff over to the new place before permanently saying goodbye to the old place".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 03:33 PM)

At these point you two are just repeating what you already said.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Again using my "moving apartments" analogy. If you can store the stuff you don't immediately need for everyday life somewhere else, it reduces the critical time of permanently switching your primary base of residence over to the new place because there's less stuff to move when the time comes.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:30 PM)

Well, my main point is that it will speed up the system migration so I have A) less system downtime because there are fewer files to transfer before the new system can be up and running and B) it reduces the risk of something going wrong during the system migration.

I think no matter what my favorite anti-metal-idol group will always be original flavor LADYBABY (who I think released two singles total ever?). Wonder what Ladybeard gets up to nowadays.

 

I always wonder how much more specific anti-idol groups can get, but then they one-up each other over and over so maybe it's a world of infinite possibilities~

I feel like it would be something controversial like "performing as close to warzones as possible".

Yeah definitely but that was in passing flashbacks. I think even Hibiki's mother didn't appear properly until the very last episode of GX.

 

Though now that I think about it Hibiki's grandmother and mother may have appeared earlier in GX...

This game has a Saber clone named Jean.

 

 

And this one has a girl who looks so much like Kurisu Makise that she has to be drawn by the actual Steins Gate artist.

So this episode had both a new Rider transformation and a new Zero-One form. I understand the impulse to get everything out there but the new Zero-One form was literally just Izu going "You had a slightly hard time with the monster so here you go Aruto".

 

I think this show would benefit from having two-parters, but I guess they're alternating two-parter years and standalone years.

 

This just has a lot more... everything stuffed in every episode (last week just randomly had two entire separate monsters). The individual plots could do with some expansion, too. This one was fine, but it could have been memorable if there was more time to tell the story.

So this is... some sort of magical girl thing. Talking head with lots of pink on it reminds me of Koromon, and the full title does have "isekai" in there.

So, Symphogear is over. It actually seems like they mean it, even.

 

It's weird to think it's been going since Winter of 2012, and like... it's gone from being a really important part of my life, to... something I frankly might have hated for a bit, to something I do really love. XV was really great at playing at being the "Greatest Hits Season" and I'm glad for that. If this really it, then all that's left is my massive thanks to Elements Garden and Satelight (and Bushiroad?) for making it all happen.

 

Oh it's BLACKFOX.

 

Yeah I will totally watch that in a week once the full thing. It even has a fripSide theme song if memory serves.

To me, making the final boss of Symphogear Hibiki's best friend possessed by an evil god feels like the only way they could have topped all the previous bosses. It kind of has a "How do you top that?" vibe.

I mean, it helped that Shem-ha was basically Fine. Plus, they needed some way to deal with Hibiki and Miku's feelings without a) directly addressing them ever, b) making it last all the way to the end of the season and c) making Miku relevant in said battle (though I mean they showed how that could have happened otherwise towards the end of the episode).

 

Plus they didn't exactly need to top the AXZ boss.

 

I think XV Episode 13 is the only time it felt like a musical without it being a humorous element (Zababa's Orbital Beat and Beef Stroganoff).

 

The animation in this episode was amazing but I think it did get a bit deranged when

Spoiler
I hope they fix that for the BD release.

 

By the way

This is just my personal opinion and I'm probably wrong, but the concept felt like it had more emotional impact than the previous bosses even if it was just a side effect.

The emotional impact was the whole point, is what I'm saying. They just got there in a way that didn't require Miku to actually take up arms against Hibiki.

 

I'm not going to lie; Hibiki's stuff in this episode was pretty epic and I bought into it, but that didn't exactly absolve the whole "have cake and eat it too" strategy of not actually making Miku the villain despite her being clearly capable of it (even Miku herself apparently thought she would become the villain).

I just learned that Kurumi Tokisaki, the girl who fills the yandere role in the supernatural harem series Date A Live, is popular enough to get a spin-off novel. That has to be a first, I can't think of any other harem series where the yandere was popular enough to get a spin-off unless she was the main girl.
