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

Blugh, the english dub of BGC is atrocious.

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

DUDE! Starcom and COPS are on Tubi too!

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.

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.

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.

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

Good gaming/computer chair?

So probably from me falling asleep in it a few times. (And my cat loving to climb up the back of it) the Computer/gaming chair I was using pretty much died.

 

I currently have my futon pushed back in front of my computer so I can sit on SOMETHING while I type this.

 

I'm looking around, but am unsure of what I want to go for to replace my old one.

 

So given I trust you guys, what kind of chairs do you use? I basically come home and sit at the computer and either use it or play videogames, so it's something that I'm hoping to have last a while.

 

I'm really just looking to have it be tall enough to support my head. (I'm about six feet tall).

 

I'm trying to keep it "around" 100 bucks. Going a little over (Like maybe 30 bucks over) Is fine.

 

Just, anything you'd recommend? I basically made this thread because I can trust you are real people who will give me real suggestions, rather then the 'reviews' on places like Amazon. I got burned pretty bad last time I did that. You think I'd know better. (Well I mean you guys have seen my posts, so you likely know I'm an idiot, but still. >_<)

I don't set at a desk for my gaming, but I like a nice low, upholstered chair. Something similar to this

I finally got rid of that big white box.

Unless you already have an idea of what you want: I think you might need to hit up a furniture store and start sitting. That's how I did it anyway, I went to the local staples and just sat until I found a chair that met the intersection of comfort and a price I was willing to pay. In my case, it was a mid level manager's chair.

Chair does look nice Ultra Magnus, but not likely to work for what I need. I really do probably need something that can swivel/roll like any usual computer chair.

 

I'll look into being able to go to a staples, or maybe big lots will have something.

 

One of my concerns is that I've read a lot of reviews about 'good chairs' that say "Yeah it was comfortable for the first few weeks, but then the padding gave out and now feels like you are sitting on a park bench with some leather over it."

 

Given my plan is to basically be sitting on this every day for long hours at a time, that wouldn't work.

 

Also given I use a bicycle to get around, transporting a chair will have to wait till I can get help from a roommate with a car. So part of me was kinda hoping to order online to avoid that, but yeah, might be my only option.

 

I suppose if I think about what my goal for this thread was, it was the hope that someone might have been using a chair for a couple of years now and it still feels comfortable to sit in and could suggest it.

 

Also thinking about it, the last time I bought a chair from a store that I got to test out. It felt fine just sitting there for a few moments to test, but trying to sit in it for long hours proved not to work AT ALL. So there is that too.

 

I really don't want to drop 100 bucks or so on a chair and then find out it's only going to last me a month or two at the most before I can't stand sitting in it anymore.

Where did I say you can't order it? Staples does delivery. Just find the one(s) you like, write down the name and model number, then look it up online. If it has some durability to it, you buy it online.

 

You're furniture shopping man: internet shopping is great, but you basically NEED to try before you buy. Take your time, visit a couple of stores, and test out the display models. That's what they're there for. Once you have a better idea of what you liked: research, research, research. It'll take a while, but you'll nail down the one you like and then you can just order it.

Don't be afraid to spend a lot of time in the chair at the store if your concerned about that. Bring your phone, start watching a movie or something.
I finally got rid of that big white box.

When you don't have the coin is the best time to go furniture shopping. You can't satisfy the need to purchase NOW so you're more likely to focus on the other elements your looking for.
