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.

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

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.

DUDE! Starcom and COPS are on Tubi too!

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

@  ▲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.

@  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.

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

GENERAL SPIDEY DISCUSSION, EVERYONE.

Especially considering the current storyline, Dying Wish. Which leads to Amazing Spider-Man #700, ending the long-running series. Which leads to SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN.

Big things happening in the world of Spidey, especially considering Dying Wish.

Discuss. There will be spoilers.

But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

Ultimate Ben Riley was black. He wasn't a spider-clone, but retconning 616 Ben into a different race could be one of the unseen effects of OMD.

How on Earth can they say "I feel like we've done as much as we can do in terms of Peter Parker's time as Spider-Man." with a straight face? All that's been done the past decades is rehashing old ground to the point where they've even retconned his marriage, certainly one of the most character evolving moments of Spider Man's life.
There are so many things that could be touched on that they haven't even attempted. Letting the character grow naturally, middle age, kids, the whole 9 yards.

This 'we've done everything' jive smacks of a writer/editor who can't look beyond the 20 something years and find worth in middle age. What a horribly short sighted, stupid thing to say/attitude to have, especially for a comic book editor. If you truly think you've explored everything you can, then walk away and let someone else have a crack.

This reminds me of the early 90s, when the Justice Society of America comic was a fan favorite with good sales yet was canned after ten issues because Mike Carlin didn't like the idea of "old superheroes".

Marvel is also getting ready to introduce the new Spider-Girl shown in "Young Allies" in "Amazing Spider-Man 637 (I thought that was the arc name for the first Avengers arc). This sounds like Alexander Luthor from Infinite Crisis, "we must find a better Spider-Man!" how the hell is Peter Parker not a "better" Spider-Man? I'm intrigued about the notion but they'd better not hug around with this too much or else it'll be Clone Saga part deux IMO.

I'm still begging for them to finally stabilize Kaine's molecular structure and have him take over as Spidey once Peter's memories get fixed.

But from the events of the last ASM...I don't think Kaine's even alive.

Okay I didn't know since I was getting confused with the "Spider-Girl" shown in the Avengers first arc that was standing next to the future Hulk at the end of the first issue. There's been speculation that is Peter and Felica's daughter.

HIGHLIGHT to view:
I want to know how Kaine looked "normal" in the cemetery scene -- he was too bulky, there's no way a mere shave/haircut would make anyone mistake him for Peter icon-depth.gif

But yeah, on another board the speculation is that he somehow switched places with Peter in between their argument and the final fight scene, and that was actually him that got "killed" (hey, this is comics, death is never permanent! icon-fire.gif) in the cliffhanger icon-ball.gif
