Ha! Talk about getting away with something!

@  Maximus Ambus : (01 June 2020 - 09:08 AM)

Carnivac was still an evil Decepticon at heart, and no one shot him in the back for it.

@  -LittleAutob... : (30 May 2020 - 06:52 PM)

*stares at the light switch* .... I see what you did there

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (30 May 2020 - 01:40 PM)

*hands llittleautobot1218 a light switch* There you go.

@  -LittleAutob... : (30 May 2020 - 10:53 AM)

I feel a need to lighten up the mood.... ;)

@  -LittleAutob... : (30 May 2020 - 10:38 AM)

:p

@  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.

@  Nevermore : (28 May 2020 - 07:21 PM)

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)

I’m also sad Cyberverse has no season four.

@  Paladin : (26 May 2020 - 08:10 PM)

it's too hugging hot today.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

I'll agree with you on that.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

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.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 10:18 AM)

*9th

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 10:17 AM)

I just saw the 8th episode... omg

@  Bass X0 : (25 May 2020 - 01:28 AM)

Already seen it online.

@  -LittleAutob... : (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!

@  -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!!!

I don't particularly mind you starting this thread here, videomaster, or I would have read it before now when I moved it to GD, but I gotta ask what the thinking was. You've said twice now you don't want to hang out with Mayhemmers; why were we the first people you thought to invite to hang out with you? X ] 


Shouldn't gravity be doing something?
 
Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

I suggested Mayhem, for a number of reasons. For one thing, if we're doing this once a week, I figured Mayhem could stay interested longer and keep this thread livelier than GD. It could be sorta hangout-ish.

 

This was not at all an evil plan to get Mayhem some new blood.

Fnu said most of the anime watchers hang here. Hence I came here to post the thread.

I'm not sure about actual numbers of people who watch anime and post in Mayhem versus people who do one but not the other but I definitely make anime-related posts more than anyone else on this site considering that I'm like 1/3 of the Japanese image thread nowadays.

At a glance, about half the posts in the Anime Recommendations thread are Mayhemmers. I'd say it's a part of our demographic, in about the same way Pony people are.

That's where I've basically always been with the idea. I don't get college "anime clubs" and whatnot. It's something that grew up out of the very limited access to anime Western viewers had in the 90s and early 00s that made "anime" a definable and manageable thing that people could be fans of. Now it's like being a fan of "television" or "radio". There are genres within the medium that have fan bases, but.

Well that's how it always goes with something like this. There will be shows some like and some you don't.

 

We've had people bow out because they weren't interested in a particular show.

 

The point of the stream is to just hang out, watch some anime, have a good time and maybe learn of a show you didn't know about so you can go get your own copy.

 

It's not uncommon for some people to see what shows we are playing, then go watch the rest on their own, only coming to the stream to hang out.

 

That's basically the point of the 'clubs' finding people who like certain shows with and hanging out.

And I'm not saying it's a bad idea. I said I wasn't interested when there were obvious reasons for them to be popular, so my interest level clearly does not indicate popularity. X ]

Now it's like being a fan of "television" or "radio". There are genres within the medium that have fan bases, but. 

I definitely know what you mean. In the 90s anime was defined was being edgy. Back then anime was more though of as sci-fi with some super national elements, serious drama, dark themes, mature rating, cussing and occasional nudity. It cool because it contradicted the cartoons you grew up with that had slap-stick and wacky sound effective. It took you on incredible adventures and changed your your world view on an emotional level. As a kid it felt like this was something only grow-ups watched. But, it was hard to come by so it also gave you that cool hipster feeling knowing you seen something so few others have like it was your own little secret from the world.

 

Imagine being a little kid and your dad is flipping through the channels to find a Saturday morning cartoon to watch and he finds Vampire Hunter D not knowing what it is about and leaves you to watch it alone while he does dad stuff...

 

The last decade it feels like anime has been flooded with assembly line, status quo, silly comedies. I guess before internet was a thing they only import anime they thought would sell well. Giving us the special stuff instead of everything, now that we have everything it doesn't feel that special...

FWIW, Original Livestream seems to be set to terminate their service on July 9.

 

I'm sad because I'm an Original Livestream user myself.  I like it.  Obscure, out-of-the-way, but works well enough.
