I tan nicely! But also have a family history of cancer... so... yeah, pasty for me it is.

@  Otaku : (23 February 2020 - 04:22 PM)

I really do begin to get sunburned after about 5 minutes of direct exposure, nowadays.  Side effect of already being pasty then going on a particular medication.  Yay?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 February 2020 - 01:36 PM)

It makes me burn. Accursed daystar.

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 February 2020 - 01:33 PM)

@  Vexwing : (22 February 2020 - 03:26 AM)

I watched L.I.L.Y.Cat on there a while back, it was surprisingly good.

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 February 2020 - 08:47 PM)

@Dekafox, no DTP, but they DO have LILY Cat ;)

Ahh. I remember watching Bubblegum Crisis 2020 or whatever.

@  Dekafox : (21 February 2020 - 06:25 PM)

Next you'll say they have Dominion Tank Police and L.I.L.Y.Cat

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 February 2020 - 06:06 PM)

Bubblegum Crisis, going by several shouts down.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 February 2020 - 05:38 PM)

@  Telly : (21 February 2020 - 02:31 PM)

harlock is on tubi as well. not dubbed though :(

@  Rhinox42 : (21 February 2020 - 01:19 PM)

Blugh, the english dub of BGC is atrocious.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2020 - 07:02 AM)

I might need to update my software, or they face regional limitations, cause I found no evidence of either.

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 10:31 PM)

DUDE! Starcom and COPS are on Tubi too!

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 09:29 PM)

Spiffy! The english dub of Bubblegum Crisis on Tubi. It's gotten so hard to find these oldies on modern streaming services.

@  Nevermore : (20 February 2020 - 08:44 PM)

And now I know and now I know and now I know that you can hear me, know that you can hear me, know that you can hear me.

Already did. It didn't take long.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 February 2020 - 03:53 PM)

Oh boy, here we go.

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:34 PM)

Or do Japan's cultural values vary depending on exactly who you're trying to shut down?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Could it be that, perhaps, these different cultural values might lead to a different approach seeming appropriate?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Hm. Back when we were arguing about the Legends comic, I seem to recall being repeatedly told that Japan had different cultural values than the US (and therefore anyone who had a problem with anything at all was wrong to voice that opinion ever).

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:23 AM)

Plus, as much as I hate to admit it, every single anime character is built to suit the audience's tastes so they buy more merch/do other things that allow $$$ to flow in the production committees direction, so the authenticity is certainly not for representation's sake.

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Both those anime air at midnight and are aimed at a very specific audience in a whole other media landscape. Major projects have press releases about almost everything, and there are groups just waiting to pat anybody on the back for doing what they want (GLAAD, HRC, etc)

@  B-Fox : (19 February 2020 - 03:16 AM)

It's funny that a friggin' anime about zombie idols and an anime about a school of anthropomorphic animals can have really positive trans characters WITHOUT a press release about their inclusion in the series prior to the episodes airing or having the creators announcing it on social media and patting themselves on the back for doing a thing.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2020 - 10:26 PM)

Vegan meat needs bacon

@  Paladin : (18 February 2020 - 08:43 PM)

vegan meat must taste delicious. they're grass-fed and regularly exercised....

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Vegans are better than kids if you don't talk to them. They'll keep the lawn trimmed anyway.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 06:02 PM)

Do you want vegans? Because that's how you get vegans.

@  CORVUS : (18 February 2020 - 04:33 PM)

Hook up your sprinkler system to a canister of healthy organic carrot-juice. The kids won't be able to get off your lawn fast enough.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 03:59 PM)

Just use the hose.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 03:52 PM)

Ask bing. It'll be a FAR more effective answer.

@  TrnsfrmGod : (18 February 2020 - 03:26 PM)

Google, how do I get those durned kids off my lawn?

@  TrnsfrmGod : (18 February 2020 - 03:26 PM)

Please ignore.  Old man here apparently doesn't know the difference between the "Search" field and the "Shoutbox" field.

 

Also doesn't know how to delete from the shoutbox

Huhn. Penny arcade was right, the division 2 is literally 3 dollars...

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 February 2020 - 11:05 PM)

Oh, Wicked Cool Toys got the Halo toy license. This is a big year for Jazwares

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 February 2020 - 07:02 PM)

iTunes/Apple TV has the complete Cowboy Bebop series for just $5!

Thanks! I've been waiting for Revolutionaries to go on sale, so I grabbed those, as well as Action Man: Revolution (which I had forgotten was a thing.)

I picked up a bunch of stuff, read a chunk of it, and now I'm not sure where to go next. And I know there's stuff I missed:

Spoiler


I just finished the first two trades of Lost Light and I think all of Till All Are One. Not sure where I go next -- Optimus Prime? I've read All Hail Optimus, but I'm worried I missed something between that and RiD.

This whole thing is such a pain to follow. If I didn't love reading it so much, I'd have dropped it ages ago.

That's from Windblade volume 2, which is in both "Distant Stars" and "The Last City".

All Hail Optimus is exRID volume 10. The trades are labelled as "Robots in Disguise" from volumes 1 to 6, after which they become "Transformers (2011)".

Oh, both instances are in the same one? Handy.

 

Oh wait, I think I have that one after all. Okay.

 

Okay, I think I'm missing just Transformers? Under RiD, I have All Hail Optimus, #38 Days of Deception, #39 and #42 Combiner Wars Prologue and Epilogue, and Transformers Annual 2017 under that banner... okay, I think I found what I'm missing. Yeah, turns out they're in my Wish List, guess they weren't part of the recent sale.

 

Does Transformers: The IDW Collection tell everything in chronological order? I might consider going for those, if I ever decide to re-read. I'd go with them now, if they weren't so behind.

There was a sale a while ago where I bought all the volumes of RiD/ Transformers v2. I got them because they were cheap, and because I forgot to convert the processing fee to Australian money so it was more expensive than I was expecting.

Then later I got the Windblade collection because it was cheaper than getting both collection individually. Sure Combiner Wars is now a disjointed mess, but at least there's less of it.


I sure wish I hadn't misspelt my username.....

--LBD "Nytetrayn"

 

The IDW Collection is broken into two phases. Phase One (which is not indicated anywhere on the books) covers everything published before The Death of Optimus Prime. Phase Two covers everything published from The Death of Optimus Prime presumably up through Unicron.

 

In Phase One, it's kind of a pseudo-chronological reading order. The story arcs that would have previously been collected into TPBs are kept intact and are presented in chronological order. E.g., you'll see the progression of Megatron Origin to -ations to Maximum Dinobots to All Hail Megatron to ongoing.

 

Beyond that, it's not exactly chronological. Spotlights and other minis get tossed in between other trades, usually in places that make sense for reading order. There are definite issues regardless of whether you prefer chronological order or a good reading order though. For example, Ramjet's spotlight, culminating in his death, is placed before the Avengers crossover where he debuts. AHM 15 is kept within the coda at the end of AHM, when it really improves the flow of things IMO if read before AHM, where it takes place chronologically.

 

I haven't looked through the Phase Two listings as much, but those strike me as likely to be more awkward in terms of the order. You have the books constantly bouncing back and forth between unrelated MTMTE/RiD storylines, the Autocracy/Monstrosity/Whateverity trilogy tossed in wherever, and then a few stray issues that don't fit anywhere else and can be set in any time period. At a glance, I'm guessing it's more or less the publishing order of the TPBs with a few tweaks.

Good lord... still, that might be better than --

Wait, "publishing order"?

Is there a way to list books by that in ComiXology?

The Optimus Prime comic follows on from All Hail Optimus.

Thanks!
