Oh, the turnover rates are high here as well.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Amazon.com and .ca, on the other hand, can be pretty terrible. I know from your squawkbox posts that you guys have your issues with Amazon over there, although you're lucky to have stronger government regulations and a union there. I gather the warehouse workers in the USA and Canada have it pretty crappy, with very high turnover, close to minimum wage pay, and no unions

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 09:38 PM)

Amazon.de doesn't really have the same issue. I've ordered from them (and UK, FR, IT and JP) several times, and their packaging is much better

@  Nevermore : (17 October 2019 - 05:22 PM)

I'm not sure how it works on the customer's end. As packers, we sometimes have items that are flagged as "overwrap", which means we absolutely have to put them into a box even if they're already in pretty sturdy manufacturer packaging.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 03:05 PM)

Yeah, I really do wish amazon had an option to upgrade packaging for an extra buck or something. I hate their bubble mailers

@  Benbot : (17 October 2019 - 07:17 AM)

That's how it works. I just hope my order from Amazon doesn't arrive crushed because they idiotically stuffed it in an envelope.

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

Run an anime stream, looking for new blood.

Hey, so I don't really hang out in Mayhem on these boards, but I was told a lot of the anime fans do and it might be the best place to post about this. 

 

So as the title suggests. I run an anime stream.

 

Every Thursday at 8pm EST my roommate and I stream a good four to five hours of anime. Two shows, four episodes each. We alternate which show we begin that night's stream with, with the other of course following it.

 

Once the two shows are over, we take a break and do a Movie/OVA night, then start two new shows.

 

We've had a steady group watching for a while now, but it'd be neat to have some new folks and this Thursday we just so happen to be starting two new shows, so I figured this was the perfect time to advertise it.

 

Being I recently picked up the complete collection of Familiar of Zero (one of my favorite animes) We are going to play the first season, and continue until all four seasons are shown. With a couple of other shows playing along side it.

 

First up we are thinking of playing War on Geminar, the Tenchi Muyo spin off. (Also given how long these episodes are, we'll likely only play two at a time)

 

So if you're interested, I'd love it if you came over to join in the fun. I'll post the livestream link in a bit, but there are a few things I think people will want to know first:

 

1- If the anime is dubbed, we play it dubbed. There are VERY few exceptions where we play it subtitled. 

2- We stream the episodes, but keep our mic on, and discuss or just comment on the show as it goes on. We try to make sure we don't talk through important scenes, but commentary will happen.

 

Hopefully those aren't dealbreakers, but if they are. I completely understand.

 

Anyway, here is the link:

http://original.live...akuascendedlive

 

If you have any questions, I'd be happy to try and address them.

Tora Dora is a much better show in that set.

Not particularly. From what I understand both of these are more on the obscure side of things. That tends to be a theme with me. For whatever reason a lot of my favorite animes are ones that aren't really in the public eye.

Buddy, if you think people vocally disliking something you like is a Mayhem-only feature, do yourself a favor and never, ever, ever look at the rest of the internet.

 

More on-topic, I'm not terribly interested in the idea, personally.  I'm weird about my media consumption, in that I tend to dislike being subject to other people's playlists.  One reason why I hate the radio is that I can't choose what I listen to next or skip a song I dislike.

 

I suppose one could always skip a particular stream, but it kind of comes down to the same thing.

I figured it'd be sitcom funny. Basically the 'crazyness' of Mayhem is leaking in, and me the straight man am like: "Ugh, this is why I didn't want to come here"

 

I've been watching this:

 

My roommate and co-host might know about it. Given this seems to be subtitled only, it's not something we'd likely show during the stream. Again, we tend to stick to dubs only.

 

Only exceptions are shows we have that just didn't get dubbed. (Sadly, seasons 2-4 of Familiar of Zero fall into this category, but damn it I want to watch the entire show. I never got to finish season 4.)

 

Or the Movie "They Were 11" as the English dub really does the movie that much a disservice. If you ever see this amazing film, don't watch it dubbed, they messed it up big time.

It's not even subtitled, as far as I could find.

I've just been watching it because magical girl humor (as in, jokes specifically pertaining to it, not magical girl anime with jokes) is a category that I end up looking really deep for anyway.
