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.

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 ;-;

@  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.

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

@  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)

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.

I may be one of the few wanting to see the movie here but Code Geass: Lelouchof the Re;Surrection tickets are up for sale now. Got me and my brother ours with our favorite seating area. I hope they got most of everyone back for the Dub.

Yep, looks like they got most back, which is fantastic considering how long it has been.

 

Then again, they got so many back for Fruits Basket as well, and that includes Laura Bailey, who doesn't really do anime anymore.

That's an oddly nostalgic move, considering the mangaka insisted on the Japanese cast being entirely new.

Interestingly enough, they are going to be premiering the Code Geass movie at Anime Boston on the 20th, along with a Q&A with Johnny Yong Bosch and Yuri Lowenthal, so I guess I'll be skipping the theatrical release.

Hopefully they will have the other VA guest panels scheduled better than the past few years.

Starting to get to be slimmer pickings over the past few years since simuldubs started. Sure, there are always Aniplex titles and movies (like this), but fewer big series.

Watching the Ultra Man anime, honestly, it kind of weird, the story makes sense, sort of, but the animation, its kind of poor for a CGI show, at times it can be amazing other times, it looks flat and down right horrible, as if they are trying really hard to recreate live action, if anything, I would say Gridman was better animated, with Ultra man, the animation keeps changing far to offen, while fluid, there are times when it looks horrible and painful to watch, good example of this bad animation is the alien in charge of the SSSP or at least scenes with him in, I haven't finished the series, yet. but I'm not exactly impressed.

Funimation got the Million Arthur anime, which was probably from the bilibili deal.

The most surprising thing about this news is that Bushiroad owns New Japan Pro Wrestling. Wonder if they've considered buying out a wedding planning business too.

Just saw the Code Geass movie today, and it was a pretty fantastic movie that has quite motivated me to rewatch the series next on my list.

 

I do highly recommend it to those who loved the series.

 

And as a explanation/spoiler of something that happened at the end that the producer had explained to Johnny Yong Bosch when they had the LA premier with some of the Japanese production team earlier in the week:

Also, I JUST found out that the recap movies (that were not dubbed, so prolly will never watch) are the cannon for the movie, and they changed a few things like:

Just watched the latest ep of Boruto, I know its filler but the story was kind of lame, the sudden reveal in the last ep of the guy being the "Big bad" of the arc wasn't great but to see him get his transformation demolished in seconds, was kind of a guilty pleasure. Of this season watches, there hasn't been much that really caught my attention, the only one I'm watching on a Sunday besides from Boruto and One piece is Shoumetsu Toshi (Afterlost), its a sort of action mystery series, the story starts when a whole city just disappears completely, aside from one girl and the main part begins a couple of years later when she broken out of a possible groverment facilty but there seems to be people with strange powers and the girl with the person who broke her out are heading to what commony refered to as the lost AKA the missing city.

It's another in a long line of constant Isekai, but one I at least find kind of charming with it not devolving into a straight Harem series. Rimiru is much too OP to make any threat feel credible or finds a way to get around things much to easily but I do enjoy the world of characters being built.

I stuck with it due to the interesting world, and Rimiru was a neat enough character. However what you say is true. He's too OP, and does get around things too easily. It's basically "Go here do thing" the anime.

 

Another thing that bothers me about it is we introduce characters that really have little point for the story. Hey meet these cool orges! Okay we'll focus on them for a couple of episodes then push them aside. Hey do you like that cool Lizard girl who's the Chief's daughter? (Like I did) Too bad, she changes and is just forgotten about.

 

It's part of what I feel makes shield hero so good. We meet characters and get to LEARN about those characters over time.

Are you sure they're actually gone and not just temporarily away? I mean, the novels are a lot of material and the anime already had a second season confirmed.

I did some snooping, and from what I can tell yeah they are THERE but get little focus. They mainly exist to move that specific piece of the plot along, then are basically demoted to "Background Character"

 

Even so, this 23 (Episode 24 hardly counts being a recap episode) anime series had more then enough time to develop SOMEONE other then Rimiru, and well it really doesn't. You learn a bit about Shizu, but it's mostly again just to set something up for Rimiru.

 

Everyone really only exists to serve as a plot point to get Rimiru to go do something. I know there are a few characters that do play a major role in the story, but we didn't meet them in season 1, and even so I don't feel it's a good thing to have all these characters serving this purpose for a 23 episode series.

 

Like I said, Rimiru is nice and all, but given he doesn't really have to struggle with anything, it gets a bit stale after a while.

LN shows are like SoL shows, except replace "people do stuff and it's relaxing and everything that's worth with the real world is okay for twenty or so minutes" with "MC is the best and you're just like MC and everthing that's wrong with the real world is okay for twenty or so minutes".

 

 

I know there are a few characters that do play a major role in the story, but we didn't meet them in season 1

 

IIRC from what I know about this series; the manga it's adapted from is adapted from a novel series that was meant as a meandering nothing on Syousetsu. Then it got really popular so the author finally had to decide stuff was going to happen in a serious way after like four volumes.

 

So you'd expect stuff to start heading in that direction around episode 13-19, but maybe it took way longer than that for things to solidify.
