@  -Wildstrike- : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

I'll agree with you on that.

@  -Wildstrike- : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

*Figured -_-

@  -Wildstrike- : (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.

@  -Wildstrike- : (25 May 2020 - 10:18 AM)

*9th

@  -Wildstrike- : (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.

@  -Wildstrike- : (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!

@  -Wildstrike- : (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.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 10:51 AM)

Perceptor would be more responsible.

@  -Wildstrike- : (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.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 09:39 AM)

'Horrible consequences' would most likely happen with Brainstorm...

@  -Wildstrike- : (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

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

He would!!!

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

Horrible consequences? I... Doubt that would happen.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:55 PM)

Even if he would come up with the answer by tomorrow.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:54 PM)

I'd rather not deal with the horrible but unintended consequences of that.

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 09:52 PM)

Lets let Perceptor make a vaccine for COVID-19. Who agrees with me :)

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 08:43 PM)

I'll take your word for it. =D

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 May 2020 - 08:42 PM)

Although the TV edits of Robocop do contain some hilarity

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 May 2020 - 08:41 PM)

I can't think of any instance where sanitizing a film is a good thing.

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 06:42 PM)

.... and thats a good thing? :doh

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 May 2020 - 06:39 PM)

I'm watching Predator on Starz! That means it has all the language and gore uncensored!

@  Sabrblade : (23 May 2020 - 04:23 PM)

*grabs popcorn*

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 12:49 PM)

*watching everyone argue* O^O

@  fourteenwings : (23 May 2020 - 10:22 AM)

By that logic we might as well just get rid of the Shoutbox wholesale! I'd rather have like 3 or 4 things stuck for a week or so than one person dominating the whole thing (no offense Nevermore).

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 May 2020 - 03:30 AM)

I would argue that "full of something one doesn't read" and "devoid of reading material" are functionally identical at the end-user level. :D

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:58 PM)

If it emptied, it would become empty.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 07:53 PM)

It would be the same effect as if the shoutbox simply emptied once or twice a week.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:27 PM)

I don't see how having walls of the same guy on top whenever I go to any page on this site is "refreshing".

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 06:10 PM)

I don't know, I find the occasional flushing of the box to be refreshing.

@  Telly : (22 May 2020 - 04:20 PM)

but its gets annoying seeing a wall of text from him that takes up most of the shoutbox

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 03:53 PM)

Eh, that's just Nevermore.

@  fourteenwings : (22 May 2020 - 12:11 AM)

@Nevermore: Good rule of thumb is if you feel like you need not just multiple statements but also multiple shouts to make a point, best just make a thread.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 05:36 PM)

Dude, do you just, not know when to stop?

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:35 PM)

Instead of "I have only ten hours to get all my stuff from place A to place B", it's more like "I temporarily stored 90% of my stuff in easily accessible place C in my spare time, so now I have ten hours to get the remaining 10% of my stuff over to the new place before permanently saying goodbye to the old place".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 03:33 PM)

At these point you two are just repeating what you already said.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Again using my "moving apartments" analogy. If you can store the stuff you don't immediately need for everyday life somewhere else, it reduces the critical time of permanently switching your primary base of residence over to the new place because there's less stuff to move when the time comes.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:30 PM)

Well, my main point is that it will speed up the system migration so I have A) less system downtime because there are fewer files to transfer before the new system can be up and running and B) it reduces the risk of something going wrong during the system migration.

We're going to Japan for a week! Well, not until October, but that's only 6 months away! THERE'S NO TIME! NEED TO PREPARE NOW!!!!

*several minutes of running around screaming later*

 

...So anyway, my parents and brother were initially going, and we have been wanting to go for years, and couldn't really afford it. We probably still can't, but got a good tax return this year. We'll be spending most of the time in Tokyo, and a few days in Osaka. Mostly sightseeing, and some visiting of relatives whom we haven't seen in ages. I haven't been there since that one summer session around 2003 for college. This will be TMM's first international flight. Around 13hrs straight. XD Other than family gatherings, TMM & I plan to spend our time on our own doing very nerdy things and some cultural stuff too. So, if there's anything you want us to look for over there, let us know. Naturally you'll have to pay for the item and shipping, but not up front- I don't want to go out of my way to get something really difficult, it's more of a "if I happen to see X, I'll get it". Let me know here or in PM. Nothing too big/fragile or H, please.

 

I haven't made an exact list yet, but here's some of the sites we'd like to see:

Spoiler

 

Thoughts? Suggestions on things to see and do/not do? Forgive me if I use this thread to ramble and sort out thoughts. I'm currently going through a Tokyo guide that's specifically for otaku, so I'm sure the list will grow...

 

EDIT: Adding/ removing things at will. Also, gonna keep a list of things I need to do/get before the trip, as a reminder to myself.

To Get:

Spoiler

 

To Do:

Spoiler

 

To Bring:

Spoiler

 

Gonna try to keep the luggage as light as possible and avoid my large suitcase, so we won't have to worry about checking in any bags (plus taking the trains b/t Tokyo and Osaka, there's limited space for large bags). The clothes we will hand wash as needed or use the coin laundry at the hotel. For stuff that needs to be shipped back, the post offices should have boxes and everything else we need.

 

Other than souvenirs, here's my wish list of things to bring back:

Spoiler

 

The difficult part is going to be impulse control with all the small cute things... :doh

I don't have any suggestions, other than to have a really great time. but not such a good time that you don't come back. America needs all the quality people it has to stay.

You sound like me.

 

I've found that whenever I travel, keeping a really detailed list of all the things I want to see/get* and updating it at the end of every day with new stuff whilst on the trip makes me feel way less FOMO when I get home.

 

*as an unabashed consumer capitalist it's mostly get though

 

So like, what's the most obscure anime characters-related concert you could go to?

 

This statement has definitely set a plan in motion where I buy out some rookie idol's CD and send MED all the event tickets so they definitely get in.

 

Serious Mode though I will look some up, but underground idols tend to be physical only anyways with no online presence.

Miku is really a strange target to complain about overexposure or whatever.

Vocaloid song might be among the least vocalist-centric, considering how much of it feels like the composers' eccentricities getting through without a filter.

That sounds like an awesome and very packed holiday plan. Hope you enjoy it!

The Gundam statue sounds like a sight to see. Shrines, temples, the Imperial Palace, wow. An Owl Cafe? How does that work.

I'd... kinda like to go to Maid cafe for, well, obvious reasons. Except i think i'd likely end up so self-conscious i'd either immediately, or spend 99% of the time staring at the table.

Can't deny the image of you and TMM at a Maid cafe conjures a great picture of TMM sat calmly, just one maid girl trying to take your order, while your face turns crimson and steams pours from your eats, boiling kettle style. ;)

Hmm. Not really obscure, just old. Slayers maybe? The anime series is way over by now so I doubt there's still be concerts going on. Unless it was just Megumi Hayashibara maybe. Not entirely sure if we'd be interested (depending on the merch they might have, lol).

On maids: I know it's their job to be extra cute and demure, and I know TMM wouldn't care, but that wouldn't stop me from wanting to throw their tiny bodies through the window.

If we're actually committing high profile virtual murder then the target is obvious; Kizuna Ai.

 

There might not be concerts, but there's always lots of anime-related random events going around.

 

I mean just pick a super-unpopular series and you're sure to get in by default (that is if they don't cancel after a lack of interest). All you need to do is watch something recent, and if you don't like it just listen to the OP or ED a lot and in six months you'll definitely believe you liked it. Trust me, To be continued... did wonders for my opinion of Infini-T Force.

I think Kizuna Ai is slightly more tolerable because she at least has a developed personality instead of just being a singing program.

I think Vocaloids are cool because they're tools by which lots of different emotions, including painfully dark ones, and they can be basically everything.

 

Kizuna Ai is basically just a real idol but with the humanity scrubbed out and I really don't get it.
