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 ;)

@  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.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2020 - 10:26 PM)

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

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 07:33 AM)

Huhn. Penny arcade was right, the division 2 is literally 3 dollars...

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.

Tomino comments on Hathaway's Flash:
 

I'm looking forward to the movie - Original author, Yoshiyuki Tomino

As the original author, I am very pleased and surprised that a novel I wrote almost 30 years ago would get a movie adaptation, let alone a trilogy. When I heard from the people involved with production that the themes in it are ones necessary for the current world, I went back and took a look, and was just stunned.

The real world may very well have regressed instead of progressed. That is why there is meaning to show these themes to the real world here and now, and this is happening thanks to the Gundam fans leading the way.
I have nothing but thanks to everyone pulling the series along.

At the same time, I can imagine that each and every one of you also wishes for the hope of the message of this work, to let the next generation pioneer the solution.

In other words, I imagine that because the generation of Gundam fans that has become adults has realised that the power of fans alone do not have the power to break the stagnation and regression of realism, they have passed it on to this work.

I believed that while there is no need for anime to be realistic, if it is something to be shown in a public place such as in a movie, it should be something that resonates widely with youths.
I believe with the generations of creators being younger, and the audience being younger, these younger generation will one day blaze a trail to the innovation of man - Newtypes.

 

So he's saying, the younger generation will A Waken into Trailblazers to Innovate mankind.

 

What does Tomino mean by this? :???

 

 

I'm very excited about the Maganac, but at the same time the inevitable P-Bandai kits puts me off. They couldn't have included parts to make at least one other like how the NPD Leo has various heads and shoulders (that is I'm assuming, if it did have variations I figure pictures would have been shown by now.).

 

On the flip side I can't believe the HGCE Destiny has all those effect parts, they were a highlight of the first HG for me and might make me get the new one.

Also, that site, Dalong's Gunpla Review, is a great site to scope out the kits of units that catch your eye - or cause you to spend even more on this money sink of a hobby. :wtf


Thanks, I've been devouring review galleries but hadn't come across this guy.

Have almost finished a second HG, and started my first RG (this one). I've completed one leg and I'm just blown away. There's a lot to appreciate about what the HG kits achieve with fewer parts but if this, uh, "Full Burnern" is anything to go by, RG dudes are just heaven. I have an MG on the way too, I can't even imagine what that bastard will look like.

 

How do human brains design these? HOW? How can a person conceptualise these builds and engineer a situation where the necessary pieces of perfectly-fitting plastic can be squirted out onto these ludicrous runners? It's inconceivable.

Well, Bandai's been doing all the work in house for nearing 40 years now. There's a lot of institutional knowledge, specialized software, and good old fashioned experience going into these things.

 

There's an informational video, even.

 

 

As for kits, like how Mazinger can be a demon or a god, Real Grades can be heaven or hell. They've got amazing engineering and a ton of small pieces, but if you misallign things (or in some cases, especially early on, even if you do everything right) they're plastic grenades. The Full Burnern has some problems with waist stability, since it needs to fit the Core Fighter, but it's mostly alright, and the gimmick is pretty impressive.

Gyan-Vulcan01.jpg

 

The Valuable Pod has a cover for the new head in support fighter mode, and it has what looks like a knight's visor. It sadly doesn't securely lock onto the head itself when the head is attached to the Gyan body, though, which would've been nice. :(

I wanted the Gyan's shield to be flat against the Gundam's face in this shot, but the Gyan just doesn't have enough articulation to pull that off without a stand. The shot still came out decent, I think. :D

RG Zeta is one to avoid. In many ways it's a marvel but also showcases why other Zetas use parts swapping to transform. To be capable of full on transforming it has so many fiddly parts. When I got the Amuro colours one I kept the original in MS mode and the Amuro one in Waverider mode.

If you want a good solid RG, the Mk-II is great.

Went and built the second Haro with the transparent shell.

 

The problem I usely have with clear kits is they're tacky, lacking inner workings to justify the transparent armour. Haro mostly steers clear of that, bar 2 annoyances-

 

The mini Haro on the forehead makes no sense

The feet have inner detail parts but not the ears.

 

Ignoring those 2 points it does generally look pretty nice. Found out this week HLJ sells the LED add on part so maybe I'll grab a pair whilst I still can.

 

Really as a whole impressed with how much the Figure-rise entries have upped Gunpla's game.

It's a surprisingly big stack. Been busy so haven't had time to work on it, which I should probably do before thinking of picking anything else up.

 

Thinking I might just straight build most of them which would give me some space and then go back to paint them when I have time later.

This is probably why I don't Gundam: looking at that stack, the ones jumping out at me are the lady with the round shields on her shoulders, and that gray Guntank looking guy that looks more like an Armored Core. X]
Shouldn't gravity be doing something?
 
Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?
