I've never read the source material and don't know much about it, but I enjoyed the first film quite a bit, and found the second alright

@  Sabrblade : (17 September 2019 - 09:49 PM)

The first movie was definitely not for me. I flat out hated it. Didn't even bother with the sequel.

@  Maruten : (17 September 2019 - 05:02 PM)

I liked the first movie a lot and enjoyed the original volume of the book, and the way they were developed in parallel was really interesting. It all got super extra unpleasant as soon as they went back though. I don't remember really whether the initial sequels are "good" or not, but either way both the second movie and the second run of the book quickly demonstrated that the property sure wasn't for me.

@  Paladin : (17 September 2019 - 04:45 PM)

i have a real hard time offering praise of anything connected to an utter shitstain like Mark Millar.

@  Rycochet : (17 September 2019 - 01:23 PM)

Kick Ass 2 was okay for what it was, a sequel to a film that was okay, just okay. It had a good performance from Nic Cage while the sequel had Jim Carrey who decided he didn't want to promote it after one of america's regularly scheduled massacres.

@  Benbot : (17 September 2019 - 12:20 PM)

Was Kick Ass 2 really that bad? I never got around to seeing it, but after watching the first movie again the other day, I'm thinking about it.

If you owe, you're expected to actually pay it at the time you file, before they even process your return

If you file electronically, I find you usually get your refund within a couple weeks

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 06:22 PM)

Well, lucky it took less than two months for me. For a little over 200 Euros.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 06:11 PM)

Pretty much, yeah. Canada revenue will be all up your ass if you earn less than 200K and owe tax, but your refund is basically "duke nukem forever".

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:34 PM)

Whereas if you overpaid and they have to refund you, they will take their sweet time to let you know.

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:34 PM)

Like, here in Germany, if the tax authority responds to your tax report quickly, you can rest assured they want more money.

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:33 PM)

Do tax authorities in other countries base their time to respond to filed tax reports on whether they owe or are owed as well?

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 11:13 AM)

Check what the requirements are for your cad program, and try to beat them by about 20%, and understand that software requirements have been stable for a few years: not really keeping up with the advancements in hardware. Unless you're doing something SPECIFIC which requires ludicrous amounts of power, just give your self a cushion on hardware and don't bother going whole hog.

@  Benbot : (10 September 2019 - 10:16 AM)

What I'm currently using is an i5 2018 Surface Laptop. My current desktop is all but dead. I think in the end affordability will win out over specs. I need to use CAD programs, but I'm a student, not a professional.

Alright. The damages now seem to include my primary SSD. Thankfully, the gaming drive (I have now lost all my games and mods entirely.) Let me wipe it and install there. Once the crucial utility is installed again, will verify the drive.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 September 2019 - 03:32 PM)

Three more crashes since I pulled the ram. Verifying the OS now... tonight might be a reinstalling kinda night.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 September 2019 - 11:46 AM)

And thankfully it wasn't totally dead, so it was working on occassion. If the problem is actually solved, I just need to wait and see if the program/system crashes are over.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 September 2019 - 11:45 AM)

Got it. I wound up running the memtest four more times, because of course it's always the last dimm. But I got the culprit. I lost 8 gig, but I'm still at three times the "recommended" amount.

@  Hg Dragon : (07 September 2019 - 11:09 AM)

DL and run MemTest86. It'll help weed out issues. Run 1 stick at a time. Then run a stick that passed in each slot. Will help you find out if it's the RAM or the slot/motherboard

@  Patch : (07 September 2019 - 10:45 AM)

How many RAM sticks do you have total?

@  wonko the sane? : (07 September 2019 - 09:57 AM)

Great, two weeks of random BSODs, and I manage to finally work out some ram has gone bad. Just need to work out which one(s) and then I can go from there.

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.
