My thoughts and prayers go out to the ninjas.

@  Bass X0 : (13 August 2020 - 06:18 PM)

The president has been kidnapped by ninjas. Are you a bad enough dude to rescue the president?

@  Otaku : (13 August 2020 - 03:08 PM)

At first, I obviously thought I was correct.  Then I thought perhaps the spelling had changed for some reason.  Copyright/trademark law is weird, ya know?  Now I just accept I goofed. XD

@  Otaku : (13 August 2020 - 03:07 PM)

See, that one directly applies to me.  Apparently, I'd been misreading and mispronouncing it wrong for over 30 years... and I still slip and do it the wrong way much of the time.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 August 2020 - 04:36 PM)

I wish I could just sit by a pond and watch ducks for a while.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 August 2020 - 03:52 AM)

Others say Joe sat down at this pond next to these ducks but really there's just no place in this world for an old man and his ducks.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:48 PM)

Even worse when I can produce those verifiable facts at a later point, and then the other person simply claims the argument was the other way round (as in, I was actually arguing their position and vice versa).

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:47 PM)

I can argue with people about my versus their memory of events when verifiable facts are not readily available, though, and I get really annoyed when I'm capable of presenting a precise, step-by-step summary with multiple key points that can be used for future verification, and the other person just goes "nope, wrong" without going into detail.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:45 PM)

I forget things, and I misremember things. But when presented with verifiable facts, my reaction is more like "Huh, could have sworn it was like that", not "this reality is not my own".

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:43 PM)

I have an extremely good memory (which I have proven time and again), and even I can be mistaken.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 August 2020 - 06:40 PM)

Might be worth pointing out that it only became "Mandela Effect" and not just "I remembered this wrong" when a conspiracy theorist insisted it was proof of alternate timelines.

@  Otaku : (10 August 2020 - 06:29 PM)

Incorrectly remembering Nelson Mandela's fate may be uniquely American... but is it really that strange to get South African political history wrong when you're no where near South Africa?

@  Otaku : (10 August 2020 - 06:29 PM)

I always assumed the Mandela Effect was a "human thing", not an American thing.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 August 2020 - 02:03 PM)

Then there are people who outright manufacture memories for whatever reason.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (10 August 2020 - 01:13 PM)

The human brain is so flaky that it is extremely unlikely that a given person does NOT have any false memories.

@  OverDrive73 : (10 August 2020 - 01:05 PM)

Perhaps it's simple word association the movie Sinbad and then our minds apply the same memories to a man named Sinbad.

@  OverDrive73 : (10 August 2020 - 01:04 PM)

The Mandela Effect is the same as people remembering Sinbad in a movie where he played a genie... Of which he never did.

@  MidnightFox : (10 August 2020 - 09:36 AM)

People that believe Mandela Effect things would rather come up with any number of reasons as to why their version doesn't have any actual evidence(like alternate timelines collapsing into our own) than just admit they remembered something wrong

@  MidnightFox : (10 August 2020 - 09:35 AM)

Sort of. It's more that when presented with a verifiable fact, they double down because it's what they believe instead of changing their minds

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 August 2020 - 09:25 AM)

"I could have sworn that ______."

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 August 2020 - 09:25 AM)

I'm not arguing with either of those two statements, but they're not really connected. Mandela Effect is, to oversimplify, people being widely mistaken about what they think *is* a verifiable fact. Nothing to do with opinions.

@  MidnightFox : (10 August 2020 - 08:52 AM)

Pretty sure the Mandela Effect in general is an American thing. Opinion > Verifiable Facts is sadly a pretty American thing

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:27 AM)

Ask these people how Apartheid ended according to their recollection, and I'm sure they'll draw a blank.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:25 AM)

You got two black anti-Apartheid activists who were imprisoned by the oppressive regime. One died, the other was Nelson Mandela. It's not a far stretch that Americans who don't know many details about the history of other countries would mix up the two.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:24 AM)

My own theory is that these people are simply mixing up Nelson Mandela and Steve Biko, another South African anti-Apartheid activist, who did indeed die in police custody in 1977. There was an Oscar-nominated movie about his life starring Denzel Washington that came out in 1987, the same time frame these people claim remembering Mandela dying.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:17 AM)

I met a few people from South Africa, and they either never heard of the phenomenon at all, or only know of it from the internet. Apparently, it's completely unknown in South Africa, and it might even be entirely limited to the United States.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:16 AM)

So does anyone remember the "Mandela Effect"? I'm talking specifically about the original case where many people vividly remember Nelson Mandela dying in prison in the 1980s.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (10 August 2020 - 03:16 AM)

Crisis of Corona.

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 August 2020 - 06:16 PM)

Which crisis crossover are we on now? I lost track.

@  Rycochet : (09 August 2020 - 05:18 PM)

Much of the past decade has been the part of the comic series where less than stellar authors have driven the series into the ground and the editors are getting ready to either do a big multi issue crossover, leading to a reboot.

@  Bass X0 : (09 August 2020 - 02:28 PM)

At this point I've just decided to consider 2020 "not canon."

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 August 2020 - 02:18 PM)

'member Pepperidge Farm?

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 August 2020 - 02:10 PM)

Before the 'member berries there was Pepperidge farm. Pepperidge farm remembers.

@  OverDrive73 : (09 August 2020 - 12:21 PM)

Maria's group are awkward. I get the idea is they're forcing themselves to save humanity but they're so amateur in the first half and then the second half over compensates by ratcheting up the drama.


Yeah that's kinda stayed the same last I saw (AXZ).
 

Ver is an entertaining villain but I wondered how his ploys worked given how transparently evil he was. The cast all know how twisted he is and then 5 seconds later put faith in him.


I haven't seen G in a long time but I think out of the FIS crew he was really the one closest to having a solid plan.
 

Hibiki's plot was interesting but feels like the writers had to escape a corner because this is a franchise now and Hibiki's power would be difficult to escalate in a balanced way.


This reminds me that YuYuYu's sequel somehow caught up with three seasons of Symphogear's power escalation despite being six episodes.

I think out of all the villians in the show, he had the best plan, thou season 3 villian plan or agenda is pretty crazy worthy of Shockwave from TF, because of what they wanted to do. Season 4 villians plan goes AWOL, but it does result in a awesome scene involving Hibki dishing out punches and a few new/old tricks for the final battle of the season. As for the fifth season, so far, its ok but the character who seems to be the primary villian, his motives make next to no sense currently while the three who are doing the dirty work, I can kind of get what their motivations are, thou how they are going to acomplish that, hasn't been revealed yet!

 

Anyway, still watching Saint Seiya, in the part of the series where the four heroes must break through the twelve temples of the Gold Saints to face the main villian directly, the ep I just finished was where DeathMask finally got justice served upon him!

 

Also watching Grandblue Fantasy from Netflix, not a bad series so far, thou the flying lizard (who believes himself a dragon) appears to be voiced by the same person who voices Happy from Fairy Tail (I watching subtitled with original langauge) and they are using the exact same voice for the character, I certainly like this series more than Revisions, I felt that was a weak series that is let down by its main lead being a totally full of himself for more than half the season!

I hope they do find and can add the old dubs, too.  I always loved when things, like the Giant Robo DVDs, had both dubs on them.

 

Now, the question is do I do the $60 or $90 tier.  Still have 28 days to decide, I guess.

I think he might mean that AXZ's villain goes AWOL, which I mean if you were to take the term lightly he does just never do much and expect the rest of his team to pull up the slack even though they constantly prove themselves extremely useless.

 

Actually

Spoiler

 

 

Hibiki's power would be difficult to escalate in a balanced way.

 

I'm slightly glad they never learned from this considering what happens in AXZ.

Just watched the latest ep of Astra Lost in Space, good ep, I am really enjoying this series, with each revelation the show provides about its characters, how the relationships unfold, of course the comedy parts of the story are making this a great series to watch.

 

On a unrelated note, the English Language manga books of One piece have now overtaken the anime completely, I blame it on the relentless filler/flashbacks they used for the Reverie Arc, but it had to happen sometime and it did, in Wano!

I'm not sure what you're even trying to say here. If there was no filler, the anime would have a more sporadic broadcast schedule, so the manga translation would've caught up even in this hypothetical timeline.

Actually, that last part sounds like you already know that your reasoning doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

So uh... someone wanna give me a complete rundown of what's currently going on with Funimation? I saw they were trending on Twitter and when I looked further into the matter, it did not look good... I'm at work so I'm not going down the NSFW rabbit hole on a work computer.

Essentially from what I'm seeing is someone found some very hentaish audio tracks with the DBZ cast that was never meant to be public and the internet is burning them alive for it being hypocritical after firing Vic for less.

The Vic stuff isn't for here or there, but this sounds like a bad joke that accidentally got out. If it was all just adults messing around who really cares.

 

I mean, Funimation brought us gems like B Gata H Kei, High School DxD, Hybrid x Heart Magias, and Heaven's Lost Property, they aren't exactly a bastion for the pure of heart.

Currently watching The Testament of Sister New Devil, not a bad series, thou I think it would benefit from the removal of the prevent parts.

 

I've also rewatched completely, Record of Grancrest War, not a bad series but in places it really lacks character development, mainly those following the two main leads of the series as many of the characters come off more 1D than fully fleshed out characters as much of the story focuses upon the larger picture of a war that being waged across a large continent and people seeking to claim crests and bloster their standing in the world.

Just been watching Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress, movie 3, to be honest, its rather shallow in regards to the story presented, the animation is ok but the story is rather weak, one of the weakest anime film stories I seen, granted its a sequel to the TV series of the same name, still it feels rather weak in regards to its story.

Just finished Astra Lost in Space, overall, good anime, good animation, great story, well thought out, highly recomend it if you like a bit of adventure, mystery and good character development. I think its one of the best animes this season, I know its based on a manga but clearly the writer had a set goal in mind as they plotted the series!

The manga was five volumes long, versus other shows where the manga is still ongoing when it ends. We've seen a lot more shows like this lately, especially in places like noitaminA.
