It arrived! Yay!

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 11:25 AM)

Given how the virus lasts about 3-4 days on metals and plastics, it's about the only way to go about getting stuff right now. I ordered a monitor mount for my desk and the delivery has been pushed back twice already.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 April 2020 - 11:04 AM)

He ordered it online, says it was to keep those delivery boys in business. I did the same a week ago with some Transformers Studio Series figures off Kapow. Don't know if it's wise or not considering.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 09:12 AM)

You'd be the first. Everyone else has either been frustrated cause the one they wanted was sold out (like during boxing week.) or rushing to replace something broken.

@  RYNO : (03 April 2020 - 08:53 AM)

I actually walked into a store the other day and just randomly decided to buy at 32inch TV. It was just a Vizio, and grabbed a Mounting Bracket for it. No duress. Just a spur of the moment wanted a TV for my master bedroom.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 07:31 AM)

Conversely: I've never met a person who wasn't buying a TV under duress... so... yeah.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 07:20 AM)

I think I've met maybe two people other than myself who count cables before buying a TV.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (03 April 2020 - 05:33 AM)

Seriously.. HDMI splitters and switches are so bloody finicky, but most tvs don't have enough inputs.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 April 2020 - 05:09 AM)

Just spent a hour trying to get my brothers new Samsung TV to read his Playstation and Blu Ray player only to find he was using a HDMI splitter.

@  Sabrblade : (01 April 2020 - 08:58 PM)

This morning, for one of my online classes, I had to give a positive oral presentation about a play that I hated having to watch. I went into it completely unprepared and just winged it. My professor LOVED my presentation and thought it was excellent. She believed every word I said and honestly thought that I enjoyed that miserable play. Best April Fools ever!

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:50 PM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 March 2020 - 06:29 PM)

Or Sideways.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 March 2020 - 05:26 PM)

On the other hand, this is Armada we're talking about. It could have actually been Metroplex.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 March 2020 - 11:08 PM)

Shame he wasn't around more. He seemed like such a jolly, happy soul.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 02:16 PM)

No, he was definitely Metroplex. You could tell because he was in Metroplex's distinctive red and green coloration.

@  Paladin : (27 March 2020 - 02:11 PM)

that was Leader-1. or possibly Jolt. maybe Grindor...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 01:57 PM)

Metroplex was in Armada, in a flashback. He was the same size as everybody else. I thought that was the joke.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (27 March 2020 - 12:39 PM)

@Rodimus Supreme: Gah! You are right! How'd I get that mixed up? x.x;

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 March 2020 - 12:14 PM)

There is no Metroplex. Only Zuul.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:13 AM)

@Tm_Silverclaw: There is no Armada Metroplex, he was in Cybertron.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:12 AM)

And they'd be better off just retooling Metroplex and Fortress Maximus to be somewhat more accurate and changing/adding parts for interaction with later play gimmicks.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:11 AM)

I honestly would prefer that for scale purposes.

@  Cyoti : (27 March 2020 - 11:07 AM)

They can redo all the CW combiners as Titan Class figures like Predaking/Devastator.

@  Dekafox : (27 March 2020 - 07:52 AM)

They could just redo Metroplex again too. Especially if it's going to be S3 based. They could also do another Primus to go with the coming Unicron.

@  OverDrive73 : (26 March 2020 - 10:56 PM)

If anyone is bored, or interested... I just added the last chapter to my fanfic comic in Allspark Pictures

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 March 2020 - 10:54 PM)

And no.. We could always get Titan Class Superion.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 March 2020 - 10:53 PM)

We need Titan Class Transformers Armada Metroplex.

@  Telly : (26 March 2020 - 08:39 PM)

ill be surprised if scorpy isnt the last titan

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 March 2020 - 05:57 PM)

Too bad a new character titan class figure is pretty much an impossibility.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 March 2020 - 05:56 PM)

I want a titan class, really good looking bucket wheel excavator. Like Cybertron Metroplex was supposed to be but didn't quite pull off.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 March 2020 - 03:32 PM)

I just taped up a shower curtain and took my first shower in three weeks. It was heavenly.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (26 March 2020 - 11:48 AM)

I would buy that...

The official English of STORY is almost on par with the Ono Kensho version. Actually convinced me to give the show another shot (I got one whole more episode in before quitting again).

 

 

Related, they aren't English, but I do know that Harada Hitomi and Suzuki Konomi both did covers of other anime OPs/ED for their Madan no Ou to Vadanis OP/ED singles. Hitomi did First Kiss from Zero no Tsukaima and Suzuki Konomi did a cover of nano's Born to be from Mahou Sensou with nothing but a piano backing her.

 

Other awesome anime covers include:

  • Faylan's anime cover album, which includes a bossa nova version of FLOW's DAYS from Eureka Seven
  • FLOW and Diana Garnet coming together to cover Blue Bird by Ikimonogakari from Naruto on FLOW's BEST ANIME Kiwami album.
  • ClariS' cover album, which included sakura by NIRGILIS, also from Eureka Seven
  • ELISA's cover album ANICHRO, which included a cover of Himitsu Kichi by Takada Kozue, also from Eureka Seven

I think I said earlier if they ever want to do a recut of Eureka Seven where it was down to two cours they'd only need one more cover to make it happen.

 

Utaite tend to do really good covers as well, but I'd really rather see more established artists coming out and doing covers. This hasn't been a big year for them in anison (it's always a big year for covers in general Japanese music), but here's hoping~

 

Oh my gosh how could I do such a big post without mentioning the two most covered songs in all of anison; secret base ~Kimi ga Kureta Mono~ (which can be heard in Kyou no Go Ni and anohana) and disillusion/THIS ILLUSION (all of the Fate/).

 

(Also the other covers thread is in Mayhem so maybe this should be moved there?)

I cut up a clip of Minase and Ogura (the two ViVid Strike leads) performing the Nanoha As opening.

Even as far as live performances go, I can't say the two of them are even as good as Mizuki on her own.



But I guess that's to be expected.

I think if Minase tried to be a good singer she could be at least 75% as good as Nana.

 

Ogura is really not helping.

 

I'm starting to think Nana as a whole is just from another time, but Uchida Yuuma is trying his dardnest to be Miyano Mamoru so maybe we just need to wait for somebody who sets their sights on being "Next Nana".

This cover of Oath Sign has been a favorite for some time

 

 

And I've been enjoying Amalee's catalog of covers quite a bit. Her new version of Kiss of Death was great.

That was pretty nice to listen to, say what you will about the series but the openning theme was rather enchanting to say the least!

NatewantstoBattle's Clattanoia from Overlord season 1

 

I think Overlord season 1 openning is the best, the others are ok but the first one just kind of nailed what the show was about!

 

I'm generally not a major fan of English dubs of Japanese opennings, the ones I tend to hear, feel like they are butchering the song, but not to say I haven't found one that I think equals its original:

I'd love to talk about these in more detail but I don't know if anybody else wants to and I'm mainly interested in covers by Japanese voice actors that I'm already following.



Aoi is my favorite magical girl voice actor and Platina is my favorite magical girl song and it's not a bad match for her voice. It's the kind of thing I never knew how much I wanted.



Minase's cover of the Sailor Moon theme is like, I can't say she's doing anything wrong, I guess. Funny that her voice is a bit deeper than usual for this. Though as far as magical girl things go I'm not sure how she'll ever top Senkin Dur da Bla.

It's hard to remember that the original version of GravityWall isn't all in English.

 

I wish there were more covers by seiyuu I follow already, but male seiyuu don't tend to do covers of each other. I mean, I can't even find covers of Orpheus which feels like it should be a super covered song.

 

I think LiSA has also done a cover of the Sailor Moon OP? Here's a terrible recording of a sample featuring Takamiy from THE ALFEE for some reason. I like this one way better than the original, probably because I have no childhood memories to ruin. Apparently Ziyoou-vachi (aka Queen Bee, performers of the first Tokyo Ghoul:re ED) also did a cover for the album LiSA's version was on.

 

Aoi Eir did a cover of Yumesekai for her single Niji no Oto and I'm pretty sure it's like 5000% better than the original Tomatsu Haruka version.

Don't know if LiSA has but Momoiro Clover Z has a full album of songs from the original show they put out before or around the same time Crystal started.

 

 

Not so much a cover as a remix here. Two-Mix's remixed dance version of Rhythm Emotion. I actually remember a club near Fort Campbell playing this a couple times the few times I hit one.

At some point, Virtual YouTubers became a treasure trove for this. Or maybe it's a garbage dump.

YuNi has done covers for the third Cardcaptor Sakura OP, the first Saint Seiya OP, the Evangelion OP, the first Sword Art Online OP.

There's Evangelion songs by members of the idol group 22/7.

Cocoa Music's done covers of another SAO song, the first Mahouka OP, and the BTOOOM OP, for some reason.

And more than I want to keep track of. Like covers by Mari and Aoi.

I think the VTuber crowd tends to be more into Vocaloid songs though. I kept running across more and more covers of Roki, for example. And there's probably more covers of Sand Planet/Dune out there than anybody needs.

I'd say it's the latter.

 

 

This cover of Glory Days almost gave me the motivation to finish Hi-Evolution 1.
