I feel a need to lighten up the mood.... ;)

@  -LittleAutob... : (30 May 2020 - 10:38 AM)

:p

@  Maximus Ambus : (30 May 2020 - 02:14 AM)

Shockwave did it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (30 May 2020 - 12:21 AM)

I'm not in the US and at least some of the episodes seem to work for me. I don't know the actual list of places it's available, though.

@  Shockwave 75 : (29 May 2020 - 10:37 PM)

Unfortunately It seems Cyberverse is only available in the US on YouTube.

@  -LittleAutob... : (29 May 2020 - 09:19 AM)

Yes, and its ongoing.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (29 May 2020 - 01:05 AM)

Cyberverse is already officially uploaded to YouTube.

@  fourteenwings : (29 May 2020 - 12:36 AM)

Spin Master is abridging current episodes of Bakugan Armored Alliance and posting the result on YouTube. Maybe Hasbro does that someday too.

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 May 2020 - 10:59 PM)

I see... :/

@  wonko the sane? : (28 May 2020 - 08:14 PM)

Within the US anyway. Those channels aren't easy or cheap to access in other countries, and their website often region lock content. Tubi is the only good thing on that list: largely identical (but not perfectly so. Damnit. I wanna watch COPS.) country to country and free.

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2020 - 07:24 PM)

So yeah, Hasbro is using plenty of venues to spread exposure of their brands

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Starz currently licenses Transformers G1 and the GI Joe movie (as well as MLP specials). Netflix has more current series available.

@  Nevermore : (28 May 2020 - 07:21 PM)

Study shows: Holders of the title "world's oldest person" have a severely increased risk of dying.

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2020 - 07:18 PM)

Tubi TV and Youtube both host various Hasbro cartoons. Both are freely accessed and ad supported. Any basic TV package (barring straight antenna) includes channels like USA Network, SyFy and FX, all of which regularly air the films from Transformers and GI Joe.

@  wonko the sane? : (28 May 2020 - 06:18 PM)

I dunno what to tell you, media might be changing slowly, but at least it's still accessible. Even the folks that DON'T get one of the streaming services can watch it on the company website. It's a vehicle for the toy line after all, they need to make an effort to make it as consumable as possible.

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 May 2020 - 05:41 PM)

Well. Thats said, then.... I guess... :doh

@  wonko the sane? : (28 May 2020 - 04:13 PM)

As long as the the cartoons are profitable, then they'll make more. The media it's shown on is completely irrelevant. I say that as a guy whose earliest surviving memory is a big red truck turning into a big red robot.

@  ZakuConvoy : (28 May 2020 - 03:06 PM)

Might be the end of an era. With the rise of streaming, who knows if Transformers will ever be on broadcast TV again.

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 May 2020 - 11:46 AM)

3 seasons on a show is usually enough... but yeah ;-;

@  Roddie Luver : (27 May 2020 - 09:37 PM)

I’m also sad Cyberverse has no season four.

@  Paladin : (26 May 2020 - 08:10 PM)

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (25 May 2020 - 01:37 PM)

I'm actually sad Cyberverse won't get another season. 2 and 3 (of what I've seen) have REALLY nailed it in being fun little actions shows, like the Sunbow series.

@  Rycochet : (25 May 2020 - 01:00 PM)

Yes.

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 May 2020 - 12:52 PM)

I'm waiting for Animated season 4. Am I insane?

@  wonko the sane? : (25 May 2020 - 11:22 AM)

I'm waiting for the next season to show up on netflix.

@  Sabrblade : (25 May 2020 - 10:59 AM)

Many of us have already watched the rest of the Cyberverse episodes since the whole third season aired in the UK last September.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 10:18 AM)

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 10:17 AM)

@  Bass X0 : (25 May 2020 - 01:28 AM)

Already seen it online.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 09:42 PM)

Who's excited for tomorrow? The only thing that makes Monday worth it is the Cyberverse episodes .-.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 May 2020 - 12:30 PM)

Welcome. I just came into that trick myself recently, so happy to share.

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 12:05 PM)

Thanks, wonko the sane? for the tip with the cloning. That helped a lot!

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 12:02 PM)

Heheh.... yes... I don't think a sniper would be very good at making a vaccine... 0.0

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 11:48 AM)

All right! Cloning my old HHD to an SSD and then swapping out the drive was successful, it would appear. Finally.

@  Bass X0 : (24 May 2020 - 11:30 AM)

Scientist Perceptor is. Sniper Perceptor less so.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 10:51 AM)

Perceptor would be more responsible.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 10:48 AM)

Oof x~x

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 10:45 AM)

He'd cure the virus, but he'd probably commit at least two crimes against nature and weaponize a third in the process.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 09:39 AM)

'Horrible consequences' would most likely happen with Brainstorm...

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 08:16 AM)

Totally. And Percy's not even human. XD

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 06:50 AM)

Can't do much worse than our current government, I say go for it.

@  Sabrblade : (23 May 2020 - 10:13 PM)

Little do we realize that the Perceptor in question is the Mini-Con combiner. :p

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

He would!!!

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

Horrible consequences? I... Doubt that would happen.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:55 PM)

Even if he would come up with the answer by tomorrow.

Slowly working my way through "Maid-Sama" and "Say I Love You" via my cable company's "On Demand" service. X number of new episodes appear a week, and after a while the same number are pulled off.

I just loved "A place further than the Universe"  which is a story about 4 teenagers who desperately wanna leave their home for some adventure. In addition to that, I loved season 4 of Tokyo Ghoul. Like always, the story has gotten even better than before. Highly recommended for anyone who hasn't watched it yet


Just bought kaneki mask from tokyo ghoul shop for new years event!

Right Stuf just confirmed that my order for the Zillion boxed set went through. 

 

Someone got me a pre-paid debit card as an early Christmas present and so I decided to splurge, only to discover the hard way that they had decided to be "helpful" by registering the card themselves (this is the first pre-paid card I've encountered that had to be registered in advance) and thus accidentally put the card in their own name. Cue me having to make some phone calls to get the mess sorted out. 

 

So in about a week or three I'll be looking at some retro.

Just been watching an anime movie called: Blame!

 

Set in the distant future humans are on the verge of dying out thanks to a malfunctioning city and there is only one known major safe spot, the story is not about how humans lost control, its about hope, it begins with a group of teens borrowing these suits that make it harder for the machines to detect them and they are simply out to find food when their attacked, the machines show no mercy but then a mysterious man named Killy appears before them and helps them out, his origins, him simply says he is from level 6000 and nothing else, he doesn't talk a lot nor does he smile.

 

Not a bad movie, its a bleak future setting but no real bad guys as such in this film beyond something that appears towards the end but as I said, its a story of hope for the surival of humanty!

A tad disappointed in the abrupt end of Bunny Girl Senpai. While most of the characters arcs are pretty much fulfilled there are still questions over the one girl who appeared in the last episode again. Was she real? A figment of his imagination, what about the younger version? She seemed to interact with Kaeade too. And was hoping to see Mai open up just a bit more but where we left off still fits her character.

Presumably the upcoming movie will focus on her arcs? (no time-frame worries, it's already been dated for early 2019)

 

The LNs are still ongoing, so even the movie probably won't answer everything there is to answer.

Ah hadn't heard of the movie. Whether I'll ever get to see it or not I guess depends on if anyone licensees it stateside. I found it curious that Funi didn't try dubbing it immediately and still aired it Subbed. Possibly a ramification of the Crunchyroll break up or perhaps just had too many others going beyond their ability to keep up with currentlyOr maybe it's a situation like SAO and they aren't they ones responsible for the dub yet still get to air it on their platform as is.

It's licensed by Aniplex, which makes sense because it's by an A-1 sub-studio (CloverWorks). SAO is A-1 directly, for example.

 

The dub will probably be out in like... due time. Not too soon I'd wager. Plus the English physical releases will probably cost all the money.

 

On the bright side, they'll probably do theatrical screenings of the movie in North America (and maybe other places) in Q3/4 of 2019.

Bad news for everybody waiting on the Seishun Buta Yarou movie; the JP release was confirmed for Summer 2019.

 

That means screenings outside Japan will probably only happen in Q1 2020.

Fall 2018 Retrospective

 

SSSS.GRIDMAN - Can you even imagine this fall without Special Signature to Save a Soul? Goodness sakes, TRIGGER. I haven't been impressed with your work since Kiznaiver. In fact, I specifically want to not like TRIGGER works because they're so presumed to be good (FRANXX notwithstanding) that it's just obnoxious.

 

However, this show had everything. Not just the amazing plot and unique characters that'll stand out in my mind for years to come, but the pacing. Goodness that pacing, it was amazing, quiet, thoughtful and knew just when to blow up.

 

Ken En Ken - Aoki Kagayaki - I love when a DEEN anime pulls through, because I love DEEN and their love of taking the most obscure jobs. This sequel to a Chinese PC game actually managed to lay out an interesting cast of characters in a world that might not have been full in terms of activity and structure, but was practically wowing in terms of interpersonal relationships.

 

Plus, we finally have a waterboarding anime. You really never know what you needed until anime gives it to you.

 

Akanesasu Shoujo - Already talked about it here. To recap: not a fan.

Anime Network's been putting up more shows on Spectrum's "Anime Network On Demand". 

 

To recap, I'm almost done with "Maid-Sama!" because of this, and I'm chipping away at "Hidamari Sketch" & "Say I Love You". 

 

They just put up "Log Horizon", so I'll be checking it out tonight.

Nope it’s Sword Art Online lite. Less die in the game die for real and more oh hell we gotta make this our lives on every way possible as it is reality. It gets a bit more Economical and has them starting food stands to buy up the player housing, diplomacy with the neighboring NPC kingdom who are now just as real and making sure the higher level guilds aren’t taking advantage of newbies.

It also has the most dashing Catman ever.

Watched a bunch of animes resently from Netflix:

Aldnoah.Zero (intersting in some ways thou the setting is kind of odd with little to explain the background to the story, the early parts of it, feels like it takes cues from Gundam Seed)

Vampire Knight (honestly, its a desent show thou I feel the title could really be Vampire High, but its not without its problems, a large chunk of the cast are undeveloped and the show relies heavily on the love Triangle between the three main characters)

Currently watching: Children of Whales (feels like it was meant for more but time restaints and crummy story telling hinder this one from what I can tell. It very similar to a movie, Water World but instead of water, its sand, massive desert sea and the bad guys motivation seems to be merely kill a bunch of innosant people because their ancesstors did something different to them and didn't give up emotions!)

I thought Children of the Whales was a beautiful, poignant show about people dealing with living in an isolated community. The characters always really resonated with me and the animation really went above and beyond at times.

Voting for the Crunchyroll Anime Awards is live. Thankfully it's not a sweeping My Hero love fest this year, though it did get in a few categories it really shouldn't have been in. However it does seem like 2 or 3 shows did dominate the categories again this year.

 

And two for best Antagonist are a tad puzzling. One despite liking her character just doesn't seem to fit the role, and the other both fits and yet should be in the opposite category as well.

 

But the hardest struggle for me was the best Dub VA. I wanted to give it to four of the six but I ended up giving it to.

Alrighty...

 

The anime version of Maid-Sama! had 26 episodes and a 12-minute omake that was originally direct-to-video. 

 

Last week, the "On Demand" bit uploaded the final two episodes of the main series. 

 

This week, they uploaded the omake. 

 

...But instead of including the omake in the listings for the main series, it got its own entry in the "On Demand" screen. Oof. 

 

 

 

But yeah - if you have digital cable through Spectrum, you've likely got a massive catalog of "On Demand" at your disposal. 

 

*Anime Network on Demand updates at 12:01 AM local Thursday mornings, and they've got a dozen or so shows going at any given moment. However, you've only got a few weeks to watch each episode of each show before it gets pulled. 

 

*Disney XD on Demand has Pokemon, Beyblade, and Yo-Kai Watch.

 

For Pokemon, new episodes of Sun & Moon go live at 12:01 AM local Saturdays most weeks, meaning you can usually watch it On Demand before it's supposed to debut on TV. They also have the entire archive of Pokemon episodes barring that one season of side-stories and the "banned" episodes, but Diamond & Pearl is having issues because some of the early digital effects aren't displaying properly in high-definition. 

 

For Beyblade, at one point they had the entire Metal series from a decade back in addition to the new shows. 

 

*Kabillion on Demand is supposed to have episodes of Yu-Gi-Oh 5Ds, but every time I try to cue one up I get the first episode of Diamond & Pearl instead. I may need to contact the cable company about that. 

 

*Adult Swim on Demand has a mix of current and classic Toonami anime, including Outlaw Star, Gundam Unicorn, Iron-Blooded Orphans, and Attack on Titan, although for some of those older shows they're about to get pulled due to expiration.

I love streaming because you're always halfway into something 100 episodes long when they announce it's going to be gone in a month.
