@  -LittleAutob... : (09 July 2020 - 02:06 PM)

Okay?

@  Otaku : (09 July 2020 - 07:47 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 July 2020 - 03:14 AM)

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

@  Maruten : (08 July 2020 - 09:13 PM)

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

It could be Bass 10-0

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 03:43 PM)

And its not Bass XO, its Bass X0, as in Bass, X and Zero from the Mega Man series.

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:33 PM)

@Trpodeca :( :(

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Thats what a gray rock is? Then I'm not one.

@  Trpodeca : (07 July 2020 - 02:12 PM)

Man I just learnt about what seemed like a really cool show, only to realize it was a dream and it dosen't really exist.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (07 July 2020 - 12:15 PM)

Bass XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

@  Nevermore : (06 July 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Oh wow. Studio Series Offroad Bumblebee is awesome. His articulation is amazing.

@  -LittleAutob... : (06 July 2020 - 11:18 AM)

Oof-

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 July 2020 - 01:10 AM)

I got Studio Series 39 Cogman yesterday and woke up to find he'd decapitated my titans returns figures.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 July 2020 - 10:19 PM)

If I had a sarcasm powered mouth.. ooohh waaaiiittt...

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 05:01 PM)

Heh

The real clones were the friends we made along the way.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 01:47 PM)

So the Emperor in episodes 1 through 6 was a clone?

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:47 AM)

(And the 0th anniversary of the last time I couldn't do math.)

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:46 AM)

Today is the 24th anniversary of the day we fought off an alien invasion with the help of Will Smith.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Oh the end of the Ottoman Empire of course.

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 10:14 AM)

*ahem* 4th of July....

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 08:14 AM)

Nothing of importance has happened before, and nothing of importance will happen again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 08:12 AM)

Nothing of importance happened today.

@  Telly : (03 July 2020 - 09:54 PM)

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 July 2020 - 03:23 PM)

They should make the next book in the Survivors series 'I SURVIVED CORONA VIRUS 2020'

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 July 2020 - 03:23 PM)

It isn't quite a "merger", more of Sony having Funi be the main streamer and affiliating with the streaming services Sony owns in other areas.  At least for F/GO, they have a 30 days exclusivity for the streaming, and 1 year for whenever the dub comes out.

Currently watching Kaze no Stigma, not a bad series, so far, not great either, I just end up laughing a lot as one of the main characters, he acts all cool and stuff, yet he has his own priorties and a few times leaves the main female character to be the bait, thou she rather inmuture and short tempered which makes her much of the butt of comedy in the series thou it tries to be serious, I just can't help but laugh, in one ep, she keeps falling for various pranks while the main male character, keeps avoiding them and keeping his cool.

Playing a bit of catch up with Boruto today, I kind of stopped watching for a while, simply because the show was begining to bore me, its filler stuff is just plain bad and painfully obvious they don't know what to do. The ep I just watched was Team 25, a stand alone ep, honestly, it was a breath of fresh air, focusing on a team that not been doing to well with their careers as ninjas.

 

A few days ago, I rewatched Astra: Lost in space, start to finish and its a good series, I think about the best I seen in quite a while. With the latest season, so far, there hasn't really been much of interst to me, thou I think the latest Fate series seems pretty promising.

Something came to mind from reading these pieces. With live events becoming a bigger part of anime experience, is there much of a push to getting those translated? Might be strange to miss out on these things despite how often anime itself gets licensed and released outside Japan.

Maybe this is just another form of anime promoting something that doesn't get officially released outside Japan, like some video game adaptations.

Usually events are mostly just the seiyuu being seiyuu and performances of character songs. However, that is something I'd like to see personally.

 

There's lots of stuff that doesn't get translated. Like when the JP BDs come with extra side-novels (or even just like a few story cards), or the Egao no Daika side-story manga, which is now 18 chapters in.

 

I personally wish Funi and Sentai would translate the events that do get released on BD but I bet most wouldn't feel the same way. Insert or character songs specifically might have prohibitive licensing fees.

Watching Ascendance of a Bookworm, its a light hearted series, basic story is, woman dies and she has a love of books, before she dies, she wishes to be reborn in a world full of books but things don't go to plan and she reborn into a poor family, in a more primative world and while she cannot have her beloved books or newspapers as its very expensive, she sets out to make her own but so far, she not having much luck, aside from learning to read and write in the langauge of the world and in that world she is inventing stuff, such as pancakes, all in one shampoo, bare in mind, the character is a child who is about 4 or 5. If you want a chill out anime, I recomend this one just to relax to and not take to seriously

I don't think I've watched an anime that is as painfully subpar in all aspects, including technical ones, as Phantasy Star Online 2: Episode Oracle in a long time.

I was so looking forward to it as well.

Just watched the latest ep of One piece, its an adaption of Oda's prototype for One piece, Romance Dawn, Luffy's goal in it is majorly different to the Luffy we come to know and love, he wants to be a Peacemaker pirate. Its a entertaining ep with lovely animation that stands above much of what been seen resently in One piece

Saw One Piece: Stampede, the new theatrical film to mark the 20th anniversary. The plot wasn't anything special and the villain was powerful but bland and uninteresting. There was sort of a McGuffin plot item that you know exactly what is going to happen to it as soon as it shows up, which made all the fuss over it lack any stakes. What the movie did well, however, was bring together a lot of familiar faces, some from recent arcs and some not seen in a long time, and it was a blast to see them fight and interact. There were also some pretty hilarious moments and great gags sprinkled throughout the flick.

 

So overall good, one of the better One Piece films I've seen actually, but by no means great. I had a fun time but I'm not sure I'd go out of my way to watch it a second time.

Just been watching SAO III latest ep, honestly, I quite enjoyed it, it really felt like they put the critical missing piece of the story into place, at last, I wasn't exactly impressed with the first half of the Alicization story, mainly because it kind of dragged on out in places, so far with its second half, it feels like they finally hit their peek point and running with it.

Late to the party but I finished Kimetsu no Yaiba last week. I only got into it after I saw the pig guy (my profile name is Fero Mc-PIG-letron so it caught my interested).

Thought it'd be too depressing from the description but I watched anyway, waiting for 10 eps before Inosuke appeared. Aaaaand of course Zenitsu is the other funny character too.

Anyway, after the season, I went crazy and read the whole dang manga. Now I'm spoiled. Durn.
