@  Maximus Ambus : (30 May 2020 - 02:14 AM)

Shockwave did it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (30 May 2020 - 12:21 AM)

I'm not in the US and at least some of the episodes seem to work for me. I don't know the actual list of places it's available, though.

@  Shockwave 75 : (29 May 2020 - 10:37 PM)

Unfortunately It seems Cyberverse is only available in the US on YouTube.

@  -LittleAutob... : (29 May 2020 - 09:19 AM)

Yes, and its ongoing.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (29 May 2020 - 01:05 AM)

Cyberverse is already officially uploaded to YouTube.

@  fourteenwings : (29 May 2020 - 12:36 AM)

Spin Master is abridging current episodes of Bakugan Armored Alliance and posting the result on YouTube. Maybe Hasbro does that someday too.

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 May 2020 - 10:59 PM)

I see... :/

@  wonko the sane? : (28 May 2020 - 08:14 PM)

Within the US anyway. Those channels aren't easy or cheap to access in other countries, and their website often region lock content. Tubi is the only good thing on that list: largely identical (but not perfectly so. Damnit. I wanna watch COPS.) country to country and free.

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2020 - 07:24 PM)

So yeah, Hasbro is using plenty of venues to spread exposure of their brands

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Starz currently licenses Transformers G1 and the GI Joe movie (as well as MLP specials). Netflix has more current series available.

Study shows: Holders of the title "world's oldest person" have a severely increased risk of dying.

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2020 - 07:18 PM)

Tubi TV and Youtube both host various Hasbro cartoons. Both are freely accessed and ad supported. Any basic TV package (barring straight antenna) includes channels like USA Network, SyFy and FX, all of which regularly air the films from Transformers and GI Joe.

@  wonko the sane? : (28 May 2020 - 06:18 PM)

I dunno what to tell you, media might be changing slowly, but at least it's still accessible. Even the folks that DON'T get one of the streaming services can watch it on the company website. It's a vehicle for the toy line after all, they need to make an effort to make it as consumable as possible.

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 May 2020 - 05:41 PM)

Well. Thats said, then.... I guess... :doh

@  wonko the sane? : (28 May 2020 - 04:13 PM)

As long as the the cartoons are profitable, then they'll make more. The media it's shown on is completely irrelevant. I say that as a guy whose earliest surviving memory is a big red truck turning into a big red robot.

@  ZakuConvoy : (28 May 2020 - 03:06 PM)

Might be the end of an era. With the rise of streaming, who knows if Transformers will ever be on broadcast TV again.

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 May 2020 - 11:46 AM)

3 seasons on a show is usually enough... but yeah ;-;

@  Roddie Luver : (27 May 2020 - 09:37 PM)

@  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)

@  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.

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

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

@  -LittleAutob... : (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.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 10:51 AM)

Perceptor would be more responsible.

@  -LittleAutob... : (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.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 09:39 AM)

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

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 08:16 AM)

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

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

He would!!!

@  -LittleAutob... : (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.

I watched the Tokyo 7th Sisters 2nd Anniversary concert and 4U were basically the best part of it.

UmmEeY7.jpg

Though it was kind of hard getting clear screenshots with the three of them in view

Judging by backstage photos from the 5th anniversary (among other things), they might have reached a point where their voice actors look more in-character than the actual in-game art.

I wonder if, in the vein of The Pussycat Dolls, eventually t7s will be rebranded t7s feat. SEVENTH SISTERS & 4U, considering how... well... forgettable the main unit is. Outside of the main character, they're all kind of the same sort of "Oh idol anime characters".

 

Even in terms of their music, I feel like when your side-units start getting their own shows, frequently, there's got to be a revaluation of what the brands main assets are.

The game's been going for more than five years already. At this point it's surely more likely to close than go through any rebranding, unless they're gonna shift focus to the future seen in Longing for Summer or something like that.

Plus, it's not quite at the level of 8 Beat Story, where the rival group got not only their own concerts, but also a joint thing with an actual (not in-character) artist, which feels like they're now less hipster than their source material.

I wonder if this would involve a scenario where some hopeless idiot still believes SEVENTH will come back even after the timeskip.

 

I wonder if eventually 2_wEi will just have their own major debut without the 8BS marketing. Or they'll just reverse BanG Dream! them.

 

Meanwhile, LiveRevolt is having a unit vs unit live, but MC's unit is not going against main rival unit so I guess we're not that far in the "story" yet.

 

I should probably get back to reading the manga.

I dunno. Is there an implication that this one was somehow related to a different group?

Oddly relevant to thread title:

I'm almost at the end of Digimon Tamers and

IVVQE8a.jpg

it seems government boy can't differentiate between the Nibelungenlied and the Volsunga Saga.

But also it is just strange that they decided to give Dukemon's new accessory a blatantly Norse name when they haven't brought up Yggdrasil in this show.

So after some searching around it turns out that Yggdrasil might not have appeared in any Digimon thing until after Tamers, so maybe the Royal Knights having a blatantly Norse mythology boss is actually because of Dukemon rather than the other way around?

I dunno. Digimon seems to be unafraid to take influences from just about anything, from the Olympus Twelve to Sanzomon & Gokuwmon. So while I think it's a possibility that Grani led to Yggdrasil, it might be that Yggdrasil might have come about regardless.

Well I think for some reason we're supposed to just assume that Yggdrasil always exists. Except in Appmon.

Well now I'm really confused. Did the Royal Knights really not appear until Digital Monster X Evolution? Is my whole understanding of Digimons mythology dependent on a movie I didn't even see until this year? Dukemon was barely even the main character in that. Though of course he got more screentime than Magnamon, who didn't get to do anything except be like (well not really) "I totally count as a Royal Knight even if I am just a half-rate Armor Digivolution!"

Digging around, the Royal Knights have been mentioned even back in Tamers material, specifically, Toei's page for Dukemon. (Which doesn't make sense considering that this Dukemon doesn't work with the Knights) But no Yggdrasil there. Apparently Frontier had Royal Knights as a group but possibly without Yggdrasil.

I found a post detailing Yggdrasil's history, apparently written up during Tri (so spoilers for a lot of Digimon stuff up to that, but it has section titles if you want to avoid specific ones), and the earliest appearance for Yggdrasil mentioned there is something called "Digimon Chronicle", which from what I could find on wikis started right after Frontier.

So I'm now rewatching the first magical girl anime I ever cared about:

y2zt2KM.jpg

But also she sounds so much like Nero that this felt like sarcasm.

Did magical girl terminology actually get standardized a long time ago and I didn't notice?

I'm guessing we all just probably didn't notice some stuff before Madoka. Then again, before Madoka I mainly stuck to PreCure, which has it's own traditions.

This feels like one of those situations where a VA voices two characters who are exact opposites.

Just wanted to leave this somewhere:

<Naas> Do you think Symphogear "ending" just means something wacky like
<Naas> getting taken over by Bushiroad
<Naas> because Kidani has yet another prediction for the next big thing in charasong franchises
<fourteenwings> don't give him any ideas
<fourteenwings> If Bushiroad took over Symphogear there'd be like 30 new gears split across 5-6 teams by end of day
<fourteenwings> All of them somehow headed by Love Live! seiyuu
<Naas> by end of day <-- do you mean that
<Naas> this will just be the first day of announcements
<fourteenwings> Yes

Bushiroad makes card games, so I'm assuming 14W means they would turn it into a Vanguard clone where you have multiple teams and each team has its own theme.

Yeah I'm actually referring to their involvement in multi-media charason projects that they immediately push into every avenue possible. They're even involved in publishing the official Love Live! game, and the international push on that is all them.

 

Other stuff includes BanG Dream! (which they made popular through sheer force of will, basically), Revue Starlight, D4DJ, etc

 

Oddly enough I think this all started through Milky Holmes, who they kept around as a unit for so long that they're probably the longest-running anime based unit where their anime doesn't have singing as a plot point (well, until the third season).
