Well, did you get water?

@  wonko the sane? : (14 December 2019 - 01:56 PM)

Went to the bathroom, shaved, baked a cake... wait, I only got up to get some water...

@  unluckiness : (14 December 2019 - 09:01 AM)

That's a common misconception. You see compared to the first run, it's a new mold.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (14 December 2019 - 03:27 AM)

Wouldn't that just add packaging authenticity? :D

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 December 2019 - 01:44 AM)

I read a anecdote of someone recently receiving a Glacialord with mold because apparently online stores' warehouses have been sitting on Fansproject products like that for years.

@  Rycochet : (13 December 2019 - 11:56 AM)

Unlike many of his peers, Morton diesn't seem to have gone out of his way to try and take every drug going so he's aged remarkably well.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:39 AM)

Doesn't seem to have been a market for it, which is too bad, because it perfectly does what it sets out to do.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Just opened it and suddenly I'm 9 years old again.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Bought myself Fansproject Glacialord for my birthday during their Black Friday sale.

@  Nevermore : (12 December 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Morten Harket of A-ha might have aged 35 years on the outside, but his voice is still pretty much the same as it was in 1984. That's some great training and exercise for you.

@  wonko the sane? : (12 December 2019 - 06:59 PM)

Depends entirely on how badly you cooked them. What?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 05:33 PM)

Can it raise the dead?

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:33 PM)

Cheddar can do just about anything.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Cream cheese has to be on a bagel or crackers.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:31 PM)

(for example: I like Swiss cheese on sandwiches, but find it merely tolerable by itself)

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:30 PM)

I mean are you eating it by itself? With crackers? On a sandwich?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

I would ask, but I'd rather not know.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (12 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

With my mouth, usually.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 08:48 AM)

Depends on how you're eating it.

Man I wish IDW could do a season 2.5 with a few writers like Michael Charles Hill or Donald F Glut or Paul Davids involved.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 04:33 PM)

They were looking for Skids, but the animators forgot he existed again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 02:58 PM)

He regrouped with Omega Supreme, the Dinobots, Skyfire and the Protectobots.

@  Benbot : (11 December 2019 - 08:20 AM)

Did he get infected with the rest of the Autobots or did he smartly remain off-planet?

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 05:38 AM)

He really just went to the beach for a couple of days, then called it in. Who's gonna follow up on it?

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 05:05 AM)

Anyone really believe Cosmos searched far enough for more ingredient for Corrostop?

@  Nevermore : (11 December 2019 - 03:48 AM)

Oh, we are pretty good at "forgetting" about that. Insisting on sending people home on their overtime, THEN suddenly rushing to do the "backlog" stuff when it's really overdue.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 December 2019 - 05:43 PM)

I've yet to find an organization which didn't have a backlog of "stuff" that needs to be done, but isn't important enough to put on the schedule proper.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 December 2019 - 05:01 PM)

I'm sure most good/bad (depending on your POV) bosses would be able to find something for the worker to do, in most cases, even if it's spending 8 hours pretending to push a broom around

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (10 December 2019 - 04:39 PM)

Still better than American jobs. x.x;

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 December 2019 - 11:10 AM)

I'm pretty sure you've already mentioned this before. Especially that last one.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:05 AM)

That can be fun if you're strong-willed enough. "Hey, you want to go home? Overtime reduction, there's nothing to do..." - "Nah, not today. I want to work."

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:04 AM)

This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:54 PM)

If it's seasonal affective disorder, check with your doc about vitamin D supplements.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:46 PM)

That's what I was thinking too, It's the christmas rush and if that's not stressful enough the cold weather can also impact mental health.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Moral imperative.

@  Nevermore : (07 December 2019 - 05:13 PM)

Wishful thinking, rumor or leak?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

Snapdragon for Earthrise.

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 December 2019 - 10:22 PM)

Still not the weirdest thing a Nic Cage character has done in a film

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 04:00 PM)

Couldn't be worse than him pissing fire as Ghost Rider.

@  Rycochet : (04 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

The Tim Burton Superman Movie is the DC movie we deserve. It would have Nic Cage in a technosuit punching polarbears.

The Magia Record anime continues to be a thing that is happening this Summer.

I like that everyone here looks antisocial and/or chuni.

If only there was a death game where everybody hates Japan as much as the writer of Battle Royale did.

I feel like this is the death game I've been waiting for, though any death game with "writing probably above 80s MegaTen-style pulp fiction" is more than I'd ever ask for given the genre's history.

 

Relatedly I did not know the mangaka of Darwin's Game was called FLIPFLOPs, I now have way more goodwill for that series.

Well, not really? I mean the most I got from the PV in terms of things I wasn't exactly expecting is when the narrator/MC is like "You watching this someone is behind you" at the very end. PVs usually have the stock lines you'll start to get after a few years, but that's nowhere near understanding actual Japanese.

 

As for "generic anime garb", they're all clearly from what is presumably the real world, but they're all dressed like... giant chuunis? for lack of a better term.

There's clearer pictures on the website. Even the most plain-looking guy has something... I wanna say chuuni about him.

This dude is definitely not how you'd make a character look friendly or approachable:

I don't think I need to say why this dude looks like a weirdo:

This one is the most amicable-looking, but she's gotta be delusional or something if this is how she normally dresses:

So we now know why The Promised Neverland wasnt simuldubbed. Toonami is airing the dub starting April 13th.

That said the last episode of the sub aired today and man it just finds ways to gut punch you to the end. Feels like the Attack on Titan rush minus the violence.

Well, the entirety of Gundam Build Divers just popped up on FunimationNow in English, so I know what the next thing I am watching after I finish rewatching Girls und Panser.  Now if Shield Bro would finally show up.  CR already has the simuldub going, so at this point I am guessing it will be once the entire thing is done.  And still no news on Mob Psycho 100 season 2's dub, which was announced as well as Shield Bro...

 

As for Promied Neverland, I hope the anime is to its manga like Attack on Titan's was to its, as in I could not get into either manga, found them boring and dropped reading them.  Then I saw the Attack on Titan anime and was shocked how better it was in motion.  Then tried the manga again, and still can't do much more than quickly scan the newest chapters for big events.

Coming in Spring 2019

This isn't a comprehensive list of everything that'll air, just a list of things I thought were notable or looked promising.

-Fruits Basket-

Spoiler

 

-Kimetsu no Yaiba-

Spoiler

 

-Kono Oto Tomare!-

Spoiler

 

-Gunjou no Magmell-

Spoiler


-MIX: MEISEI STORY-
Spoiler

 

Other notable series:

My personal favorite series from the upcoming cour is Shoumetsu Toshi, a sci-fi story about a city that has disappeared and the people who investigate the circumstances surrounding this. It's actually based on a mobile 'runner' game, and the main character rides a motorbike, so we'll see where that leads. Expect lots of conspiracies.

The visual novel YU-NO (typing the full title comes at your own risk) is finally getting a cleaned-up and comprehensive adaptation thanks to the folks at 5pb., Genco and feel. The ED will be by now-veteran anison performer Konomi Suzuki, and it's one of her best in recent years.

In what will probably be snapped up by Netflix only to never be heard of again, P.A.Works suddenly decided to shed whatever was left of it's 'kind' image and make a gritty original anime about soldiers getting surgery to turn eldritch abominations and it's ramifications in a show called Fairy gone. The frequently silent music collective known as (K)NoW_NAME (which includes my personal favourite musician/soundtrack composer R.O.N) will be performing and composing the OP and ED.

The formatting there looks weird since every spoiler box is closer to the next title in the list rather than the show it's actually describing (e.g. the Fruits Basket box is closer to Kimetsu no Yaiba, and so on).

I mean, I don't know if anybody will get confused about this, but

That's not to bad, I guess, at least their not doing what Buroto is doing and making filler arc after filler arc.

I can accept a something being called a filler arc in like... the original Naruto series or Black Clover, but when Boruto exists entirely because "more Naruto stuff needs to happen" to start with can any of the anime be 'filler' even if it isn't anything like the manga? Isn't the manga also essentially also a "more Naruto stuff needs to happen" series?

Disney's Kilala Princess is back, with a Mulan series! I guess this is better synergy for a more action-focused series, and with the recent popularity ("recent", he says) of Disney Princesses I hope this means they'll do even more series.
