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.

@  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.

@  ▲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.

@  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)

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.

*sigh* Why does Superman need an edgy backstory? Is it so hard to write him as an orphaned immigrant, adopted by loving parents who instilled into him virtues and encouraged him to discover more about himself and grew up in a quiet nowhere where his more...peculiar...traits never really went noticed because the closest neighbors were miles away?

Because optimism, compassion, truth and unadulterated altruism are apparently, alien concepts at the moment. And the idea of 'Tge Big Blue Boy Scout' is seemingly antithetical to their modern view of an edgy, angst fuelled, morally grey 'Superman'.

It is very sad.

Look, Frank Miller was replaced by an angry talentless alien or something back around 2000, so I don't know why his name carries any weight still.

Shouldn't it be:

Frank Miller in his prime writing a Superman Year One would sound like a bad idea.

 

Today's Frank Miller? It has the potential to be hilariously awful, and if it is, I'm there for that*. Hurt me, DC, so at least I'll feel something.

To be fair, the image of rural upbringing as a progenitor of honest, decent thinking is kind of hard to take seriously anymore. Framed from a modern perspective, it's hard to believe Clark isn't a racist, homophobic, bible-thumper who thinks unions are the devil.

 

Not to say that this is a better option, just that Superman is in dire need of an updated, less whitewashed backstory. And Frank Miller nowhere in sight.

it was...almost completly terrible.  There were tons of weird stilted moments in the text...like Pa talked like a 30's hick, but i have no idea when it takes place. The gang rape scene...i'll sort-of accept, because atleast lana isnt a high school prostitute...these are the kinds of concessions that must be made with a current Frank Miller book.

I get where you are coming from, but honestly I think that's the untapped potential in Supes' backstory because "whitewashed" rural America is changing fast. So the concept of the immigrant/alien wanting to adapt to their new surroundings while not losing what they were...has some legs even without altering the fundamentals of Superman's upbringing.

 

But it may be that I'm a bit more jealous regarding said backstory since I pretty much live in Clark's backstory or as damn close to it as one can without the superpowers. I might not have been adopted but my wife was, so his backstory resonates. As for the more unpleasant aspects of rural life...again there's story potential there.

 

The typical teenager weekend involves copious amounts of alcohol and long stretches of road. A kid that's virtually indestructible and powerful? You've got a lot of chances for the beloved modern tragedies that teach valuable life lessons. Plus it'd be a hell of a thing for Clark to find out he's a mean drunk as a hormone raging teen.
