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.

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.

You didn't like Tiger and Bunny?

Had a weird experience in attempting to watch it and stupidly watched episode 11 (I think) first because I am a dummy who can't read episode title links properly. I've meant to go back and fix that, though.

I did not - I was really put off by Boss' voice at the time after being used to his Mazinkaiser voice. Could probably stand to go back and check it out, though.

Uh, how does everything look samey unless you're not paying attention? (or if the things are by the same studio/character designer, i.e. Kokoro Connect and K-On) And if things do look samey, why would anybody not have had this issue in earlier years? Or with male characters?

On a related note, I started reading the original Getter Robo manga, and Ryoma's design just looks horrifyingly generic compared to his New Getter Robo appearance. Or maybe he's not so much generic-looking as he makes me have to remind myself I'm not reading about an older, muscled-up Koji Kabuto. Maybe Dynamic Planning just had some sort of unified in-house style, although I don't think it really makes sense for these two to have similar facial features like that.

Heavens, no, that's not my intention, and male protags can certainly be adorable. I said that because after I made my point, you guys recced Symphogear, which to my knowledge is some kind of mecha-themed magical girl show. (I am likely terribly wrong, but that's what I've grasped from what people have posted here and in other places.)

Perhaps clarification is needed - my annoyances are based in the cutesy stuff getting popular and the fact that it appeals to the really skeevy neckbeardy fans that I really do not want to get lumped in with. It's the same idea as not wanting to go near ponies as a guy for fear of getting associated with Bronies. Obviously not all fans are like that, but that insecurity is there.

Lemme see... I guess that insecurity is manifested into something like a combination sour grapes and jealousy mindset. Since I can't get to the shows in question (because of my own imposed ways of thinking), therefore they must be terrible and disliked. And since they're popular and keep happening, jealousy stemmed up 'cause all the decent, not-skeevy folks are getting new stuff to enjoy while I continue to be a stubborn grump and grouse because of my own stupid ill-informed opinions that spawned due to hype aversion of Haruhi Suzumiya ...seven... frickin' years ago...

...



Jive, that got introspective and I did not expect to decipher a mindset at 5AM. Pardon the epiphany, that just sort of happened while I was replying. And now I know I'm an insecure dumbass who's missed out on a lot of potentially cool stuff. Or in short, in this topic, Wingus figures out he's been a dumb jive for years and some introspection has caused his To-Watch list to expand exponentially. icon-wildride.gif

I think I wound up shoving it to the backburner as a combination of my own screw-up in trying to start it, and it was still coming out about the time I fell into Kamen Rider.

I see Cute Girls without context, they blur together. It's mostly an issue of my own laziness because I can't be bothered to go look stuff up (or start to, get distracted, and never get back to it). And somehow, the few times I DO go look things up, it ends up being the stuff I genuinely don't like, which discourages me from looking up more. Yeah, I've got issues.

And I do have the same issue with male characters, so it's not a gender-related thing at all.

You should also try Star Driver. It's kinda like Gurren Lagann, but with the Hotbloodedness replaced by Fabulosity.

I can't remember why I stopped watching that show.

Symphogear doesn't rely on cuteness to sell things, you really should give it a try Wingus.

That's pretty true for most of season 1, but after the ending of the most recent episode, I'm starting to lose faith in it. (Although I'd say the second season isn't really necessary)

Could just be that after a while, the parade of Cute Girls all start to look pretty same-y.

Uh, how does everything look samey unless you're not paying attention? (or if the things are by the same studio/character designer, i.e. Kokoro Connect and K-On) And if things do look samey, why would anybody not have had this issue in earlier years? Or with male characters?

I see Cute Girls without context, they blur together. It's mostly an issue of my own laziness because I can't be bothered to go look stuff up (or start to, get distracted, and never get back to it). And somehow, the few times I DO go look things up, it ends up being the stuff I genuinely don't like, which discourages me from looking up more. Yeah, I've got issues.

And I do have the same issue with male characters, so it's not a gender-related thing at all.

Huh. Well, I don't have the issue with things blurring together or looking samey despite having interest in very little. Not sure why.

Eh, it was like, one scene so far out the four episodes that are out. If they did that at the end of each episode then I'd be worried.
