@Nevermore yes.

@  Nevermore : (08 August 2020 - 09:11 AM)

Is $30 a good deal for Subscription Service Breakdown?

@  Trpodeca : (08 August 2020 - 06:24 AM)

Oh dear God no. Twitter has changed it's default layout to the terrible new one. Why waste so much space on the left?

@  Steevy Maximus : (07 August 2020 - 08:28 PM)

@Bass X0, yeah, the Joe comic got REALLY solid in the upper 20s to the Cobra Civil War. It's interesting to see how well the Joe comic has aged relative to the cartoon. Where as I feel the opposite is true of Transformers

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 August 2020 - 03:58 PM)

Its so fun watching past TF Conventions.

@  Bass X0 : (07 August 2020 - 02:20 PM)

I've been reading classic 80s G.I. Joe lately. Its still decent even though I don't have any nostalgia towards it.

@  Sabrblade : (07 August 2020 - 08:50 AM)

Think of it as Adam West Batman instead. ;)

@  wonko the sane? : (07 August 2020 - 07:49 AM)

That sounds more like the flash, or maybe booster gold than batman.

@  Sabrblade : (07 August 2020 - 12:27 AM)

They would get bored fighting each other and instead decide to take an epic cross-country road trip together.

@  RichardT1977 : (06 August 2020 - 08:57 PM)

What would happen if Batman were to fight Squirrel Girl?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (04 August 2020 - 09:03 PM)

Unless you count the Mask vs Lobo special, but that's less a duel and more a duet.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (04 August 2020 - 08:52 PM)

My favorite crossover fight was Thor vs Shazam/Captain Marvel. Early in the fight, Thor discovers that Billy Batson needs lightning to transform, and being a god of lightning he simply denies him that.

@  Sabrblade : (04 August 2020 - 08:46 PM)

Let's see a fight between Death Battle and Super Power Beat Down

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 August 2020 - 06:15 PM)

Which Lobo later claimed was because he was paid to take a dive. Yes, really.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 August 2020 - 06:15 PM)

And then there's the times it's been decided by a fan vote, which is how we get things like Lobo (who can go toe-to-toe with Superman at full strength) losing to Wolverine.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:49 PM)

And then there are the "but my favorite characater will totes win because I say so" people.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I mean, there are some people who really approach this from a somewhat reasonable standpoint, coming up with a plausible scenario and a setting that creates a fair environment that doesn't favor one character.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:46 PM)

My favorite stupid "why would they even fight each other" question recently was about three versions of Optimus Prime (G1, Bayverse and Aligned).

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:45 PM)

Batman obviously can beat everyone. Even Galactus. He's Batman. He's so smart, he'll just throw a Batarang and hit the weak spot at Galactus's forehead, knocking him out instantaneously.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 August 2020 - 11:37 AM)

It's almost like all drama is just manufactured pissing contests to keep us all entertained and distracted. :p

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (04 August 2020 - 10:16 AM)

Or they could go White Ranger vs Scorpion route and have both win. ;P

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:35 AM)

Besides, we all know the answer is nearly always "they fight to a standstill and then team up against a common enemy."

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:29 AM)

The best way to prove this is to give an example where the match is really lopsided in favor of one character but in popularity they're either evenly matched or the weaker one is more popular.

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:27 AM)

The "who would win in a fight" discussions are really just people trying to make "which one's better" into something you can theoretically measure objectively, usually in a very specific way they think they've predetermined their favorite will win.

@  Otaku : (04 August 2020 - 02:01 AM)

@Nevermore So... you're saying you didn't like DC Versus Marvel/Marvel Versus DC?

@  Steevy Maximus : (03 August 2020 - 06:59 PM)

So, what happened to Hasbro's Zoids relaunch? An English dub, some stuff in southeast Asia, and now a game coming in October? That it?

Tidal wave, cause shooting water gets you nowhere.

@  Darth Gonzo : (03 August 2020 - 09:57 AM)

Who would win Tidal Wave or Broadside?

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 August 2020 - 08:17 AM)

Btw Happy birthday to those people in the box to the right \o/

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 August 2020 - 08:16 AM)

The bottom line is obvious. It makes no literal sense to fight someone on your faction. :/

@  wonko the sane? : (03 August 2020 - 06:14 AM)

That's because you're doing it wrong. You're supposed to just stack skills and ability against each other. It's not the palace of doom, it's an episode of american gladiators.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:32 AM)

The only obvious winners of such a fight would be the bad guys.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:29 AM)

And what does it even matter? They should work together, not stupidly fight each other for the mindless entertainment of idiot onlookers.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:29 AM)

Why would two good guys fight each other? What are they fighting over?

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:28 AM)

I never understood these "who would win in a fight between two good guys" discussions. They make no sense to me.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 August 2020 - 04:17 PM)

If G1 had continued we'd have had Starscream back in spirit - through Krunk, Snapdragons partner and possibly Skullcruncher unless he was mute.

@  Bass X0 : (02 August 2020 - 12:28 PM)

There are some decent impersonators in fandubs though.

@  -LittleAutob... : (02 August 2020 - 10:45 AM)

The only true Starscream voices are Steve Blum and Chris Latta, hands down.

@  Sabrblade : (02 August 2020 - 10:14 AM)

Why they didn't have Scott McNeil voicing that Starscream, when he was the one who had imitated Chris Latta when he voiced Cobra Commander in the DiC G.I. Joe cartoon, is beyond me.

@  wonko the sane? : (02 August 2020 - 09:57 AM)

Say what you will, that was an awesome scene.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 August 2020 - 08:36 AM)

Beast Wars Starsream "I am AIR COMMANDER Starscream of the DECEPTICON BATTLEFLEET!"

@  Nevermore : (02 August 2020 - 07:02 AM)

I liked TF: Prime Starscream.

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 August 2020 - 08:36 PM)

Hearing Starscream's screechy voice in Cyberverse has to be the most annoying thing ever in Transformers. Even his G1 voice wasn't as bad. :doh

The use of Goddamn is the most surprising. That's TV-MA or higher, along with any other religion-based exclamations. (See: Venture Bros.' "The Incredible Mr. Brisby" in which Dr. Venture's exclamation of shock was changed from 'Jesus Christ Superstar!' to 'Ladysmith Black Mambazo!')


Being part of any fandom is fundamentally embarassing.

That's specifically a weird quirk of Adult Swim, though. (See: they also muted the third word in "Holy Zombie Jesus" in an episode of Futurama, which had been fine on Fox with the same rating.) Not a standard that applies across all media.

Do you think you could release the raws for this one? The process of scrubbing the subtitles for BWII was fairly time consuming for me, and someone may want to abridge Neo in the future.

They're soft-subtitling it (using subtitle tracks you can turn on and off), so you'll get raws.

Well, whatever decision you come to, I can't wait to watch this show.

 

I also dread it too, because, like after watching your BW2 subs, I'm sure I'll want to collect all the core main characters from this show too!

We did find it quite humorous that after we released BWII that several folks were tweeting us saying it was our fault they were picking up characters like Starscream and BB.   :D

"Butthole" ruins the immersion for me because it immediately makes me read any character as Beavis and/or Butthead.

 

Beavis and Butthead are teenagers.


 

 

Neo has a bunch of basically a group of teens who are out of military school who don't work well together and cuss each other out whenever they don't agree with something.

 

 

So it makes sense on that basis?

We wanted to throw this question out to the fans on the language content. 

 

Beast Wars Neo surprisingly uses a lot of really harsh words which at times can be translated as swearing.  How do you guys feel about this?  Our thoughts have always been that for a Transformers series, we want to make it as accessible as possible to younger kids and adults alike. 

 

We want parents out there to not have to worry about this kind of stuff if their kids are watching. But with Neo, it's actually quite difficult - due to Cohrada and Break mainly.

 

We'd love to hear your thoughts on this.

 

Please no swearing. I really only watch cartoons with my kid. And I think it really pulls me out of the viewing experience. It certainly does in the live action movies.

It would be much easier in a pdf or text file that's separate from the video.

 

 

I always find incongruous swearing in fansubs of kids' anime distracting and immersion-breaking, definitely put me down as an 'against'. Like Chris was saying, it surely can't be as harsh in the original Japanese-language context, because it was made for children...?

 
It is actually.  There's a big difference with the dialogue from the characters in Neo vs II.
 
Neo has a bunch of basically a group of teens who are out of military school who don't work well together and cuss each other out whenever they don't agree with something. 
 
It's not like every second line had swearing but they definitely don't hold back in this show.

 


Can you be more specific? Like, I'm pretty sure the Japanese exclamation usually translated as "bastard" doesn't literally mean "your parents weren't married".

 

 

Okay, so there's basically one scene in episode 10 where the Cybertrons are walking through the belly of this monster.   Break makes a comment wondering how long this path goes on for.  Then Cohrada pipes up and says "Probably right to this monster's asshole." 

 

It's lines like that where we can't avoid mild language.  Taka-chan and I don't feel it's right to use "rear end" because that doesn't convey the manner of how he said the line which was intended as a rude and sarcastic way.

 

 

Pretty sure "butt hole" is perfectly acceptable there. And funnier, anyway.

 

"I bet straight to the b-hole," would be even better.

Nobody uses the word anus in casual conversation.

"Butthole" ruins the immersion because it's pretty obviously going out of its way to avoid saying "asshole".

 

Some people actually don't cuss as incessantly as TV and movies might make us think. 

 

I mean, idiot kids with limited vocabularies, or just generally dumb people. Like me when I'm not watching myself. It would be GREAT to get more media where the cuss words don't feel so forced and loaded into the script because the writer thinks those words HAVE to be there to appease the moronic masses.
