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 ;)

@  CORVUS : (21 February 2020 - 08:46 PM)

Stupid, delicious Ben & Jerry's.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 February 2020 - 06:42 PM)

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.

@  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.

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

SAmsung has you covered. Exploding phones.

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 PM)

Modern problems require modern solutions.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 PM)

Japan seems to have a tradition of murder things where cellphones facilitate the killing instead. Like King's Game and Doubt.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 05:17 PM)

Or there's just conveniently no reception, or all of their phones are dead at the same time. Or they're just stupid and forget about them.

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 04:41 PM)

Now the slasher villain has to go and knock over the nearest cell tower before butchering horny teenagers.

Yay Lando!

 

Oh look its the concept from early versions of TFA where Rey and the other scavengers, were salvaging the second Death Star on a water planet.

 

Huh the Knights of Ren, can't even make it through the trailer alive. Maybe that dark,stormy place was Ren.

JJ said that you could tell a lot about the story by looking at the "Art of The Force Awakens" book. I was hoping it would draw inspiration from those sunken Death Star images and it looks like it is!


Yep.

So is Skywalker the term for a force user who is neither Jedi nor Sith going forward?

Huh the Knights of Ren, can't even make it through the trailer alive. Maybe that dark,stormy place was Ren.


I was wondering if that was one of them. I don't believe it is, but I am obviously not the only one to think that at first.

Not impressed by the title, it feels rather misleading considering the fact Ren is not a Skywalker as such and Rey isn't said to be a Skywalker, or did Luke quietly have a child somewhere else who going to swoop in and save the day? I was thinking the title might be better off with "Child of the Force of Children of the Force!" The trailer its self, ok, I guess but I still got the bad feeling about this movie having to work hard to answer all of the mystery boxes JJ setup and it will pretty much bring the movie down!

 

See, this is want a bunch of us wanted. The legacy is respected but this is Rey and co's story.

Why was that so hard for Johnson?

 

He a idiot, what do you expect? Its been confirmed whatever plan JJ setup went out the window for Last Jedi, so I think this trilogy will go down as a text book example of mismangement from start to finish, but hey, Lando back (will he die in this movie?)

I was going to avoid everything Star Wars because the series has been mishandled so badly, but fine, you've convinced me to watch the trailer.  I'll check it out when I get home.

No Y-Wings! Boo!

 

Abrams sure does love those low flying fighter shots.  I'm, uh, not complaining or anything. 

 

VERY interested in the end. Mostly for Walky's reaction, but, you know, also for how that's going to work.

You don't know WHAT the title refers to yet. No one does. So you can't say it's misleading yet.

Quit griping and let the rest of us enjoy this.

Bringing back the Emperor after redoing/undoing the OT and applauding TLJ for "allowing SW to go anywhere now" sure would be a sight to see.

On the other hand, old Sheev is one of my favorite characters and Ian's still around, so hug it why not?

Disappointed that after TLJ cast us into unknown waters, narrative wise, JJ is bodily dragging the franchise back into familiar and oft retreaded territory.

 

That said, I know that laugh. And he effectively carried an entire trilogy on the back of his performance. I'm not going to pretend seeing him again is a disappointment. And then there's Lando, and they got at least one scene with Carrie Fischer in the film.

 

Alright Abrams. Let's see what you have in mind.

Nothing here that's changed any of my thoughts on what's come before or is yet to come, but it certainly has my curiosity at least. It sure does flirt with the idea that it could go in a similar direction to TFA and open itself to criticisms of being an OT retread. Plenty of interesting tidbits though, and the title definitely has me wondering.

 

I think my favorite part of it is that brief shot of Lando. Every time I've seen Billy Dee Williams in recent years, he's seemed to be in very poor health. I really wondered what sort of presence he might have on screen. At least in that shot though, he's just so vibrant and alive! I hope to see more of that.
