I think Broadside should be the next Titan Class figure.

I tan nicely! But also have a family history of cancer... so... yeah, pasty for me it is.

@  Otaku : (23 February 2020 - 04:22 PM)

I really do begin to get sunburned after about 5 minutes of direct exposure, nowadays.  Side effect of already being pasty then going on a particular medication.  Yay?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 February 2020 - 01:36 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.

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.

like an irresistible disease that cannot be countered by mantras and herbs.

 

Thanks to modern medicine, this makes Karna sound kind of weak in effect?

 

 

This makes Bhima decide to kill seven hundred elephants.

 

So that's why Indian elephants are an endangered species!

So not only does Arknights have a character named Nightingale but she's also the first character from a non-FGO mobile game I've seen to have a really strong Saber-Face:

I don't think I've talked about this but

Seems really daring for T7S to do a story where everyone who shows up is older, considering that Love Live just made a new continuity where μ's and Aquors are contemporaries to avoid anything like this.

Aikatsu! is really confusing about this, because On Parade! clearly takes place before the potential 4th Season part 2 where Ichigo and Akari become a unit, but it takes place probably right after the ending of Akari Generation otherwise. It also takes place after Stars! as a whole happened, and right at the end of Friends!.

 

So, technically, it all happens just before the epilogue of the original Aikatsu! anime or the timeline splits right after the last episode of 4th Season but before the epilogue.

I started watching Digimon Universe Appli Monsters. One thing I learned immediately before I started watching was that the writer was the guy behind Yo-kai Watch, and he brings that same dedication to novelty here.

 

The protagonist is quite obsessed with his status, is simultaneously entirely unaware of it.

 

I don't understand why people don't like/talk about this show more. It's basically about a kid who reads Not Harry Potter teaming up with Google to save the World.

I wonder what this is supposed to mean, considering both of Adventure's protagonists were very good at soccer, but here the character who is good at soccer is the proxy for Leviathan (the bad guy).

 

Though here he does kind of put to bed exactly why he isn't the protagonist.

Using the word Buddy like this is so very Buddyfight, which is odd.

Another Mahabarata observation: this volume has been oddly persistent in referring to Ashvatthama as "Drona's son" and never by his name.

I think this might've happened in some scenes earlier, but it's really noticeable now since he's so involved in the action.

Page 207 (in chapter 1195) describes Karna's use of the bharghava weapon. Apparently it launches "thousands, millions, billions and crores of extremely sharp arrows".

Arjuna says there's no way to counter this, and Krishna's plan is to just go somewhere else and wait while Karna gets tired.

They go to meet Yudhishthira who seems to have collapsed somewhere. Yudhishthira assumes they already killed Karna, and spends like half of chapter 1196 asking "so you killed him, right?" in so many different ways.

This feels like the bow and arrow equivalent of glorifying a holy sword by saying it can slice a mountain in two.

I think the color distribution is a bit off to be an idol game character, at least with the hair. The blue or orange should be more dominant with the other as a highlight.

See: Yumemi (Cinderella Girls), Nicole (Tokyo 7th Sisters)

Maybe she's an idol design run through the general Fate aesthetic, which can result in designs that feel off. Like her shoes for example.
