At first, I obviously thought I was correct.  Then I thought perhaps the spelling had changed for some reason.  Copyright/trademark law is weird, ya know?  Now I just accept I goofed. XD

@  Otaku : (13 August 2020 - 03:07 PM)

See, that one directly applies to me.  Apparently, I'd been misreading and mispronouncing it wrong for over 30 years... and I still slip and do it the wrong way much of the time.

Others say Joe sat down at this pond next to these ducks but really there's just no place in this world for an old man and his ducks.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:48 PM)

Even worse when I can produce those verifiable facts at a later point, and then the other person simply claims the argument was the other way round (as in, I was actually arguing their position and vice versa).

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:47 PM)

I can argue with people about my versus their memory of events when verifiable facts are not readily available, though, and I get really annoyed when I'm capable of presenting a precise, step-by-step summary with multiple key points that can be used for future verification, and the other person just goes "nope, wrong" without going into detail.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:45 PM)

I forget things, and I misremember things. But when presented with verifiable facts, my reaction is more like "Huh, could have sworn it was like that", not "this reality is not my own".

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:43 PM)

I have an extremely good memory (which I have proven time and again), and even I can be mistaken.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 August 2020 - 06:40 PM)

Might be worth pointing out that it only became "Mandela Effect" and not just "I remembered this wrong" when a conspiracy theorist insisted it was proof of alternate timelines.

@  Otaku : (10 August 2020 - 06:29 PM)

Incorrectly remembering Nelson Mandela's fate may be uniquely American... but is it really that strange to get South African political history wrong when you're no where near South Africa?

@  Otaku : (10 August 2020 - 06:29 PM)

I always assumed the Mandela Effect was a "human thing", not an American thing.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 August 2020 - 02:03 PM)

Then there are people who outright manufacture memories for whatever reason.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (10 August 2020 - 01:13 PM)

The human brain is so flaky that it is extremely unlikely that a given person does NOT have any false memories.

@  OverDrive73 : (10 August 2020 - 01:05 PM)

Perhaps it's simple word association the movie Sinbad and then our minds apply the same memories to a man named Sinbad.

@  OverDrive73 : (10 August 2020 - 01:04 PM)

The Mandela Effect is the same as people remembering Sinbad in a movie where he played a genie... Of which he never did.

@  MidnightFox : (10 August 2020 - 09:36 AM)

People that believe Mandela Effect things would rather come up with any number of reasons as to why their version doesn't have any actual evidence(like alternate timelines collapsing into our own) than just admit they remembered something wrong

@  MidnightFox : (10 August 2020 - 09:35 AM)

Sort of. It's more that when presented with a verifiable fact, they double down because it's what they believe instead of changing their minds

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 August 2020 - 09:25 AM)

"I could have sworn that ______."

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 August 2020 - 09:25 AM)

I'm not arguing with either of those two statements, but they're not really connected. Mandela Effect is, to oversimplify, people being widely mistaken about what they think *is* a verifiable fact. Nothing to do with opinions.

@  MidnightFox : (10 August 2020 - 08:52 AM)

Pretty sure the Mandela Effect in general is an American thing. Opinion > Verifiable Facts is sadly a pretty American thing

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:27 AM)

Ask these people how Apartheid ended according to their recollection, and I'm sure they'll draw a blank.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:25 AM)

You got two black anti-Apartheid activists who were imprisoned by the oppressive regime. One died, the other was Nelson Mandela. It's not a far stretch that Americans who don't know many details about the history of other countries would mix up the two.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:24 AM)

My own theory is that these people are simply mixing up Nelson Mandela and Steve Biko, another South African anti-Apartheid activist, who did indeed die in police custody in 1977. There was an Oscar-nominated movie about his life starring Denzel Washington that came out in 1987, the same time frame these people claim remembering Mandela dying.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:17 AM)

I met a few people from South Africa, and they either never heard of the phenomenon at all, or only know of it from the internet. Apparently, it's completely unknown in South Africa, and it might even be entirely limited to the United States.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:16 AM)

So does anyone remember the "Mandela Effect"? I'm talking specifically about the original case where many people vividly remember Nelson Mandela dying in prison in the 1980s.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (10 August 2020 - 03:16 AM)

Crisis of Corona.

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 August 2020 - 06:16 PM)

Which crisis crossover are we on now? I lost track.

@  Rycochet : (09 August 2020 - 05:18 PM)

Much of the past decade has been the part of the comic series where less than stellar authors have driven the series into the ground and the editors are getting ready to either do a big multi issue crossover, leading to a reboot.

@  Bass X0 : (09 August 2020 - 02:28 PM)

At this point I've just decided to consider 2020 "not canon."

@  Steevy Maximus : (07 August 2020 - 08:28 PM)

@Bass X0, yeah, the Joe comic got REALLY solid in the upper 20s to the Cobra Civil War. It's interesting to see how well the Joe comic has aged relative to the cartoon. Where as I feel the opposite is true of Transformers

Guilty Crown is...interesting. It's got sci-fi super-high production values and some wonderful animation, but the setting is a bit simplistic and it suffers from "everybody is better than the main character who is a bit of a joke" syndrome.

Generally people want it to improve.


Honestly, if it was just about the rebellion fighting the evil empire, I think it'd be a much better show.

The main character just kills it.

Though it is very nice looking.

I don't have a problem with the main character at the moment. As long as he grows pass the wuss phase soon...assuming there are more episodes. Today's new episode really felt like a finale. Maybe it's just a season finale, but I can't help but wonder if it's over.

If it's over, I'll probably pick up one of these new shows.

I've been trying to give some of the new shows a chance over the last couple days.

So far the Symphogear one is fairly interesting, Mouretsu Pirates seems like it's going to be fun, Papa no Iukoto looks more entertaining than the manga, and I've only half watched Rinne no Lagrange.

Something about Rinne no Lagrange is driving me batty though. Madoka's in a jersey club, where she helps out other clubs.... and I've seen this idea in some other anime or manga over the years, but can't remember it or find it online. I remember had several members, and may have been called something like the do anything club. They wore tracksuits as well, and it seems like at some point some alumni members came to help the current members out of a jam. This is going to drive me nuts until I remember it. Anyone got any ideas?

Yes indeed, two OVAs which I'm very happy there's finally news about Akito the Exiled, there was nothing about it for so long.

And Nunnally in Wonderland which will probably be very silly and funny.

And a photo story that will run in run in both Hobby Japan and Newtype Ace, the Hobby Japan project will be a photo story about a terrorist youth who wants revenge against the death of his lover and the Newtype Ace project is a manga about a member of the anti-terror knight force that has to hunt him down, the KMFs in both stories will be released under the Robot Damashii line. And it's name is "Soubou no Oz" or "Oz The Reflection".

And a stage play and a musical.

No, I checked and I definitely haven't read that one. Same concept though. Seems like while the protragonist guy was a member of the helping club, but the story wasn't about the club itself. I seem to remember a scene where someone like the student council president sees the protagonist in his jersey with a girl he likes and is jealous... Likely setting off the scene that ended up with the alumni helping out... This is going to continue bothering me.

The latest ep of Pirates was pretty good. They have 26 episodes to work with so easing us into the world is best. Also loved the little bit of Pirate philosophy from Marika's mother.

Some of the recent anime show titles are just simply... hilariously misleading. Giant Killing, is for example, not an anime version of Jack and the Beanstalk, but a show about football (soccer, well, soccer IS football). Black Lagoon has nothing to do with the nominal creature that you'd expect, but is about pirates... But my biggest surprise was when I checked out the show called "You're Being Summoned Azazel-san!" -they have done the unthinkable, turning the classic arch-demons of hell into pokemon-like chibi creatures that help a detective/summoner solve petty cases. icon-fire.gif

Seems pretty straightforward to me - even as someone who doesn't care about football, I'm familiar with the term "giant killer" for a "worse" team that beats the big teams.

Two eps into Rinne no Lagrange and I like it so far. I've always been fond of the sort of wish-fulfillment "normal kid thrown into giant robot war is actually special and the only one that can pilot this robot and also they're super awesome at it right from the start" plot, and it helps when I like said normal kid character. The op and ed songs are nice, but nothing catchy.

Kill Me Baby, on the other hand, has a moderately catchy opening and a super catchy ending. The show itself is pretty funny too, and I adore Yasuna's actress. She sounds really familiar, but I don't think I've watched anything else she's been in. I wish I could find the name of the lady doing the time/scene change voiceovers, because she also sounds super familiar.

I've also watched the first two eps of Ano Natsu de Matteru. I like it well enough to watch some more, but it really just feels like Onegai Teacher with slightly changed character settings (no surprise then that it's written and designed by the same dudes that made Onegai Teacher/Twins. Ran out of ideas, I guess).
