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.

@  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.

Google, how do I get those durned kids off my lawn?

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.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 03:54 PM)

Think of all the horror and mystery movies that involve the bad guys cutting the phone line. Now think about how many people don't even have a land line to cut anymore.

@  Telly : (16 February 2020 - 03:47 PM)

its like that scene in commando. the bad guy has to get to a phone to call the big bad to tell him arnold isnt on the plane. that wouldnt happen today

@  Rycochet : (16 February 2020 - 03:18 PM)

Watching early episodes of the x-files will make you feel super old once you start to notice the techology they use, and the technology they lack.

Makes you feel old, don't it?

@  Maximus Ambus : (14 February 2020 - 02:38 PM)

While browsing Youtube vids I read these comments: 'The X Files is such an underrated show' and another 'Brent Spiner is a underrated actor' I want to punch something.

So is that an occasion for congratulations or condolences, Telly?  I see it as a good thing, but that is a matter of personal preference; easier for me to keep straight who is who when the names don't change. XP

@  Telly : (14 February 2020 - 12:48 AM)

I've seen it. It didn't really deliver on the title

@  Paladin : (11 February 2020 - 05:28 PM)

we don't need to see that. we're living it.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 February 2020 - 03:42 PM)

Anyone seen an old British movie called 'The Earth dies screaming' it's like a Doctor Who serial minus the Doctor.

What was sexist about it? It's a play on 1900s women's club videos. It's kind of a cliche parody of old girls' hobbies like archery. The voice-over comes from a really dusty old promotional filmreel that was found by the council president in her attempt to revive the school's long-dead tank club.

Thing is there's no real context for that in the trailer, it's presented as is as a Sentai trailer. Look at what FUNimation did when they made a trailer for Strike Witches, using audio and video filters to make it look like it came from a newsreel. So when I see a trailer like this that says "Watch Girls und Panzer, it's full of that sexist gumph Japanese entertainment loves!" it doesn't make me interested. An in-joke doesn't work when you make a trailer for those who don't have context.

Blame Sentai, then. The actual show itself is definitely one of the best shows I've ever watched. I'm not even joking. Like seriously, one of the most exciting, funny, and just straight-up enjoyable pieces of animated fiction ever. Nobody thought it would be anything more than a moe show, but it blew everyone out of the water on a shoestring budget and became an instant classic.

And yes, I know you won't believe me, but it's seriously true.

I am blaming Sentai though. They made a bad trailer that to me fails to sell the show. If they'd put more effort in it could have been clever or charming. Instead it shoots itself in the foot, in my opinion.

If it means anything, alot of people I respect have said good things about this show and being a Sentai title means I'll likely get a free copy to review. I'm just not making it a priority on my To Do list.

Complaining- It's how HC says 'Hello'.

Oh cool, can you let me know if this scene is on the DVD?



It's from episode 8, apparently it was missing from some broadcast versions because of copyright issues. Even Russian folk songs are owned by someone, apparently.

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)

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.

I'm not so much bothered by the cuteness so much as how shallow it was, at least compared to episode 4 in the first season. The training montage was something that was built up towards, since it was pretty clear for the few episodes before that how Hibiki needed to learn how to fight. But the school festival concert ending sequence was building up from what, two scenes of characters trying to get Chris to take part. Just a flimsy excuse to pander to the moe fans.

Anyway, this isn't really the anime thread, so eh.
