So apparently some models of air-conditioner are on trays inside the case, so they can be removed for easy access to the internals. I did not know that two hours ago: and have since cleaned three. It's been a learning kind of day.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 September 2018 - 09:15 AM)

There's probably been a Pokedex-themed 3DS cover.

@  Noideaforaname : (21 September 2018 - 04:34 PM)

I still got that Pikachu Edition Gameboy Color from back in the day. Yellow and Blue and with Pikachu, Jigglypuff and Togepi on the screen.

Quote of the day: I either need bourbon or aspirin, and I'm pretty sure the liquor cabinet is closer than the medicine chest.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 September 2018 - 02:38 PM)

I don't recall any Pokedex themed DS or Game Boy, but plenty of Pokemon-themed ones. My favourite, and the one I've got myself, was the Pokemon Red/Blue themed 3DS with the swappable faceplates that came out around the time the original games were made available via digital download

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 September 2018 - 02:30 PM)

I'm fairly certain Nintendo has done Pokéball red and white, but I don't know about specific Pokédex colors.

@  Paladin : (21 September 2018 - 11:10 AM)

random thought: has Nintendo ever made a 3DS that looks like a Pokedex? because that seems like a GOLDMINE waiting to happen...

@  Nevermore : (21 September 2018 - 03:23 AM)

Wiigii! Titans Return Grotusque for only 60 Euros (actually 70 but I somehow had an eBay gift card for reasons that escape me) with free shipping from within my own country!

@  Whirl Maximus : (21 September 2018 - 03:02 AM)

That was the plan for Predators too with the Super Predators.

@  Waspinator : (21 September 2018 - 01:46 AM)

So, apparently in the new Predator movie, the Predators don't hunt us for honor or the challenge or anything like that, but because they're stealing human DNA to modify themselves. Congrats Hollywood, on making a monster far less cool and scary.

@  Pennpenn : (20 September 2018 - 08:46 AM)

I only started playing it recently so I don't know what it was like before. Actually surprised they haven't finished the story yet. Then again, unless they introduce another world it's pretty much just Maleficent and whatever the Foretellers are playing at left.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 September 2018 - 08:30 AM)

Geeze.. I reloaded up Kingdom Hearts X for the first time in a long time. That game has massivily inflated from when I played it when it first launced in the US.

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 09:07 AM)

It's an annoying thing to have happen in any game. I'm hoping they actually finish releasing all the story mode parts before 3 comes out.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 September 2018 - 06:24 AM)

Ahh. Hadn't played that in a long time.. Since before the PVP I think.

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 04:33 AM)

Kingdom Hearts Union Cross. Specifically the PVP fights.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 September 2018 - 04:31 AM)

What game PennPenn

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 03:13 AM)

Man, I love it when you've got limited attempts at something in a game, said game crashes at the end of the thing, so you lose the attempt but don't get any credit.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 September 2018 - 08:44 PM)

I know. I'm back to the classic purple for the first time since the comic theme was introduced.

@  Fenix Twilight : (18 September 2018 - 08:32 PM)

Alright thanks, gonna be weird without the speech bubble boxes but I'll manage.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 September 2018 - 07:59 PM)

Nope, ongoing problem for a bunch of us. The mods know, so... just hunker down and wait. In the mean time: changing themes will sort it out for a bit. Only the comic theme is affected.

@  Fenix Twilight : (18 September 2018 - 05:36 PM)

Is something going on? I'm missing the buttons to go to the newest post and there's no banner for the forum list, it just says "logo" in the corner.

Awesome. Good job man.

@  Lazy Garou : (11 September 2018 - 09:30 PM)

cleaning up, mostly.but the little plastic piece where the power cable hooked up was broken. That I managed to put back together.

@  Patch : (11 September 2018 - 04:48 PM)

So he also has White Castle-like qualities?

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 September 2018 - 02:23 PM)

Just keep him away from the plumbing, he's really hard on the pipes.

@  RichardT1977 : (11 September 2018 - 01:22 PM)

Overlord has some castle-like qualities to him

@  wonko the sane? : (11 September 2018 - 12:15 PM)

Fix it, like, found a working power adaptor, or fix it like: there was saudering involved.

@  Lazy Garou : (11 September 2018 - 11:58 AM)

that feeling when you fix something and works like a dream. we now have a working snes in my house and I have tested 10 games on it and they all work.

@  Arazyr : (11 September 2018 - 10:44 AM)

...Now I want a Transformer that turns into a castle.

@  wonko the sane? : (11 September 2018 - 09:37 AM)

You should be careful man, lots of allsparkers life in castle law states. It's a good way to get shot you know.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 September 2018 - 11:54 PM)

There's been consistently good sc-fi flicks; most just fly under the radar as lower-budget or indie pictures

@  Steevy Maximus : (10 September 2018 - 09:28 PM)

If you can forget about that garbage Ghost in the Shell feature...

@  Steevy Maximus : (10 September 2018 - 09:27 PM)

Upgrade is a GREAT dark sci fi throwback film. Kind of feels like the genre has been nailing some good stuff after a LONG time of drek

@  Sabrblade : (10 September 2018 - 06:34 PM)

Hey, Steve is a Vehicon!

@  abates : (10 September 2018 - 04:44 PM)

I thought it was spelled "Stege".

@  Arazyr : (10 September 2018 - 02:10 PM)

So, "I before E, except after Siege"? :D

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (10 September 2018 - 01:59 PM)

Memorandum to all: the word "siege" is spelled with the "i" before the "e".

For Bella Rose Fraizer-Grant Sept 8, 2011 to Nov 26th 2011... Pop-pop will always love you!!!!

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.
