It's probably stuck on the low priority end of Warden's to-do list.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 November 2019 - 10:45 PM)

Because the only full-body Nightbeat was that Bumblebee with a new head one.

@  Bass X0 : (20 November 2019 - 04:14 PM)

Why has there been no new Minerva toys? I’m surprised at Takara. The Titan Master head doesn’t count.

@  Maximus Ambus : (20 November 2019 - 01:05 PM)

On my shelf I have Ginrai donning the Star Convoy armor.

@  Liege : (19 November 2019 - 07:42 AM)

That he is.

@  Benbot : (18 November 2019 - 04:01 PM)

And a good boy

@  Liege : (18 November 2019 - 09:19 AM)

Hound is at least a very good toy.

@  ThunderWear : (18 November 2019 - 09:11 AM)

Hound is the only other one that even comes close to Chromia in my area, and he ships in two separate waves.

@  Liege : (18 November 2019 - 08:58 AM)

This might be how they finally get rid of all the Chromias. I've not seen a shelfwarmer like that in ages.

@  RichardT1977 : (17 November 2019 - 08:26 PM)

It's a good deal if you want a full set of Refraktor (and if they have them at your location)

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 November 2019 - 04:43 PM)

Here we can buy two and get one free, but at least two of them are gonna be the same toy, because lol distribution.

@  Bass X0 : (17 November 2019 - 01:01 PM)

In the U.K., it’s more like you but two, you only get one given how expensive they are.

@  Sjogre : (16 November 2019 - 10:46 PM)

Okay, that actually sounds pretty fun.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 November 2019 - 12:49 PM)

It was set in the forties, featured Nazi's as the villains and had Kiko fight mostly Ice Age animals and a mythical dragon that now ruled the island guarding Kongs treasure.

@  Paladin : (15 November 2019 - 11:37 AM)

and it was ALSO eleven hours long.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 November 2019 - 10:55 AM)

In a alternate reality Peter Jackson made Son of Kong.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 November 2019 - 09:30 AM)

To be fair to boba: everyone else to go into the sarlacc was a sacrifice. Stripped almost naked and tossed, and didn't have body armor, a jetpack and a weapon.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 November 2019 - 06:54 AM)

Nah, he just has to keep up his plot insurance payments so he can shoot his way out of the Sarlacc again.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 November 2019 - 02:59 AM)

Funny, but everyone knows he bounty hunts for Jabba Hutt to finance his 'Vette.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 November 2019 - 02:54 AM)

Okay.. Not sure why.. but streaming is harder than jsut playing the game.. even though that's pretty much what I was doing.

@  Xellos : (14 November 2019 - 06:47 PM)

What type of vehicle does Boba Fett use for time travel? A Man-DeLorean.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 03:55 PM)

Admittedly, it's been a long time since I've been to a walk-in clinic, as I tend not to get sick (and the one time I do every 4-5 years, I prefer just riding it out at home), but the last time I went I'm pretty sure you could just show up, no appointment. It may be different in Quebec,though

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:36 PM)

One thing to note about health insurance in Germany is that we have a two-class system: mandatory health insurance is basically the economy class, while private health insurance is the business class.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:32 PM)

My local doctor is actually a shared office with several doctors where you will get randomly assigned to one of the doctors available that day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:30 PM)

Also, employers are required by law to cover part of their employees' health insurance fees, so I only have to pay my part.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:28 PM)

Basic examinations and sick notes (known as "work-inability certificates" in Germany) for the employer are covered by our health insurances by default.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 November 2019 - 12:02 PM)

Around here, we can go to a walk-in clinic whenever, but might have to wait in the queue until there's a doctor available, which can take hours on a busy day. And then hope our insurance will cover anything.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 November 2019 - 07:38 AM)

There actually are a good number of clinics around here: but the walk ins require an appointment (what?) and are only done once a week. IF you can get an appointment, you see a doctor usually within 40 minutes, but good luck getting the appointment.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

Depending on the day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

We have family doctors (called "house doctors") with regular office hours where you may need an hour or two of waiting time.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 12:50 AM)

Two weeks? That seems a little long; are there not a lot of walk-in clinics around you?

@  wonko the sane? : (13 November 2019 - 07:01 PM)

Does germany make it quick and easy to see a doctor too? Cause an emergency doctor visit can take two weeks out here, and an emergency ROOM visit can take 18-24 hours.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:43 PM)

(Good thing is, under German law, if you call in sick during your vacation and see a doctor immediately, you get to keep your vacation days.)

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:42 PM)

Too bad. My plans wee to do two more overtime hours before having my last day of vacation for the year on Friday. Oh well.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:41 PM)

So I'm currently on medical leave for a particularly stupid reason: Burned my back with a hot-water bag while sleeping last night. Though the doctor said I'm hardly the first person to have this happen to them.

@  Patch : (13 November 2019 - 06:11 PM)

Just a particularly odious example of the 90s era of depicting transgender women as either the subject of crude humor, or "Jerry Springer" material.

@  Ashley : (13 November 2019 - 04:55 PM)

I think Ace Ventura legit contributed to me spending years in self denial. I will never be ok with Jim Carrey.

@  Benbot : (13 November 2019 - 01:22 PM)

I thought he since changed his tune.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (13 November 2019 - 12:51 PM)

Jim Carry Paladin?

@  Maximus Ambus : (13 November 2019 - 12:22 PM)

Don't doubt what he can do. Sonic the Hedgehog!

@  Paladin : (13 November 2019 - 11:51 AM)

not giving a dime to a transphobic antivaxxer.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 November 2019 - 11:25 AM)

It'll be a terrible movie if jim carrey phones it in. Otherwise it should be decent.

@  Paladin : (13 November 2019 - 10:45 AM)

sonics' still gonna be a terrible movie but at least they whined loud enough to make him look passable for a 2-minute trailer. "yay."

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:37 AM)

But of course to annoying people there's no such thing as different decisions made for different reasons, there is only "I like it so it's right" and "I don't like it so it's wrong."

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:35 AM)

Even if we pretend it's objective truth that they were both bad, then they were bad in very different ways.

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:33 AM)

Sonic's previous movie design looked genuinely bad. The Transformers '07 designs just looked insufficiently like what certain loud and obnoxious parts of the fandom think Transformers are required to always look like.

@  Otaku : (13 November 2019 - 08:50 AM)

Um... Purple Monkey Dishwasher?

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 November 2019 - 08:25 AM)

Do we really need to have Every Movie Transformer Thread Ever in the Squawkbox?

Officially done with "Maid-Sama!". The manga was still ongoing when the anime was being made, and so the series had to end on a cliff-hanger with the main love triangle introduced near the end not being settled. 

 

They're only doling out one episode of "Log Horizon" a week despite how long it is, but it's two episodes of "Hidamari Sketch" each week so hopefully they'll go onto the later seasons as well at that pace. 

 

 

But yeah... "Maid-Sama!", "Say I Love You", "Wolf Girl & Black Prince"... is someone at Anime Network just pushing teen romance series about dysfunctional couples, or are they having odd luck with what broadcast rights they're getting?

Looking on their Wikipedia pages, all three of those are (were?) licensed by Sentai Filmworks.

Re-watched One Punchman season 1 the other day, the eps do feel longer than they are and its entertaining but I do feel it kind of lacks a central villian who hasn't encountered the main character, yet as all of the villians in the show do not last very long before they get wiped out thou I kind of hope, the last villian of the season could surive to one day come back and challange the hero once more after they did some training but then I do think when they began making the anime, they were rather a head of themselves which is why its only 12 eps long compared to other shogan series that quickly gain trackion but then its likely hard to produce a filler arc for a show about a hero who beats every foe with a single punch.

All shoujo romance (and therefore most anime romance) is dysfunctional. No exceptions.

Watched the first episode of Kemono Friends 2. The pacing is way different, faster, but that might not be a bad thing.

 

It looks way prettier too, which is good.

This is two weeks now that Anime Network on Demand hasn't had a new series up. 

 

They've upped "Log Horizon" to two new eps a week instead of just one, but no new series. 

 

Guess they're waiting for "Maid-Sama" to go ahead and expire before putting up anything new.

Spilling over the Vic Mignogna talk here since he's affecting more than just Dragon Ball.

 

So due to this controversy He's been dumped from RWBY, lost most of his convention gigs, and I'm starting to wonder further work from Funimation. Rise of the Shield Hero is taking an awfully long time to come through Funi's service. I'm beginning to wonder if he was originally cast before the controversy hit it's stride and am now scrambling to recast now? That's only Speculation but Vic's latest Funi role besides Broly was as a demon in Reincarnated as a Slime which his last appearance dates just before this started getting steam.

At the moment, I'm watching just two new series from this season, the first is: Dororo, its a dark feel to it, the story of a man who spent his whole life under a curse due to his father's greed, the curse took a great deal from him as a baby, a new born to be exact, his father made a deal with a bunch of demons and as a result his first born son was cursed, the curses should of killed him but he lived, yet he had no sight as we see things, no hearing, no sense of touch, no arms, no legs, no skin either, yet somehow he lived, the main story takes place years later with the character roaming the land and killing demons, he can see what one of the other characters call the soul of living things!

 

The other series is Magical Girl Spec-Ops Asuka, another take on the magical girl gene, the big bad as such has been defeated and a couple of years later, Asuka is trying to be a normal school girl but because one form of evil has been defeated, doesn't mean the evil of humanty has been quesh! Asuka has a bit of PTSD from the events of the past, she was the leader of the team, there are four others, one of whom was the team healer and has the code name of War Nurse, she seems like a very kind and gentle girl. There's two characters who aren't magical girls and their Asuka's friends & class mates, one gets involved in a terrorist attack and its left her turmatised.

CR is actually in charge of the dub of Shield Bro and Mob Psycho 100, I think it is Bang Zoom doing it.  Funi just still has partnership stuff for this season with them, and I think it is done after that. 

 

In fact, CR premiered the dub of the first episode of Shield Bro a few months ago, but the delay was not announced until right before the series started airing, so as far as I know right now, there is no concrete information.

I'm watching too many shows this season.

Dororo, The Promised Neverland, Kemurikusa, My Roommate is a Cat, Girly Air Force, The Magnificent Kotobuki, Special Ops Asuka, and The Price of Smiles.

That's in addition to new seasons of Kemono Friends, 3D Kanojo, The Morose Mononokean, and the ongoing adventures of a Slime.

Question - 

 

https://en.wikipedia...isodes#Specials

 

The first run of "Hidamari Sketch" had a series of three specials, that is two full episodes and a preview for the next season. 

 

Anime On Demand has chosen to bypass these specials (unlike what they did with Maid-Sama, where they aired the omake once the main show was over) and go straight to the second season. Thing is, iTunes doesn't have them either. 

 

Does anyone know if the physical DVD releases had them? 

 

Thanks. 

 

 

Also, they've added Ultrawarumeno (sp?) to the mix as well.

I think one of the (many) reasons English BD/DVD releases wait so long is so they can bundle in the extra episodes too.

 

Of course thanks to Netflix (which really could just upload them anyways) we'll never see Official English subtitled High School AU Children of the Whales.

Utawarerumono is an interesting series, mostly about diplomacy and territorial conquest in a pseudo-feudal Japanese setting, but it kinda goes off the deep end for its finale.

Just watched the latest ep of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, it was a funny ep and a bit sweet as well, seeing Naruto spend time with his daughter instead of being sat in the Hokage office all of the time, obviously a filler ep but it was kind of sweet seeing Naruto's daughter given some spotlight as she rarely gets much time on screen.
