Ah well, I'll stick to the classic British sitcoms: One Foot in the Grave, Til Death Do Us Part and They Think It's All Over.

@  TM2-Megatron : (05 April 2020 - 12:53 AM)

There's always the original, cheesy as it is

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (05 April 2020 - 12:10 AM)

Dunno... Tonight one of the major networks showed a movie with plagues.. including that listening to their leader causes the first born to die. ;P So nah.. I think the Stand could work. :D

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 April 2020 - 09:18 PM)

That's probably the last thing anyone needs to see, at the moment. Maybe when we get to the end of June/beginning of July and we can venture back out, it might be possible to find some enjoyment in The Stand.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 April 2020 - 02:08 PM)

I suppose the CBS adaptation of Stephen Kings The Stand will be delayed.

It arrived! Yay!

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 11:25 AM)

Given how the virus lasts about 3-4 days on metals and plastics, it's about the only way to go about getting stuff right now. I ordered a monitor mount for my desk and the delivery has been pushed back twice already.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 April 2020 - 11:04 AM)

He ordered it online, says it was to keep those delivery boys in business. I did the same a week ago with some Transformers Studio Series figures off Kapow. Don't know if it's wise or not considering.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 09:12 AM)

You'd be the first. Everyone else has either been frustrated cause the one they wanted was sold out (like during boxing week.) or rushing to replace something broken.

@  RYNO : (03 April 2020 - 08:53 AM)

I actually walked into a store the other day and just randomly decided to buy at 32inch TV. It was just a Vizio, and grabbed a Mounting Bracket for it. No duress. Just a spur of the moment wanted a TV for my master bedroom.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 07:31 AM)

Conversely: I've never met a person who wasn't buying a TV under duress... so... yeah.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 07:20 AM)

I think I've met maybe two people other than myself who count cables before buying a TV.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (03 April 2020 - 05:33 AM)

Seriously.. HDMI splitters and switches are so bloody finicky, but most tvs don't have enough inputs.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 April 2020 - 05:09 AM)

Just spent a hour trying to get my brothers new Samsung TV to read his Playstation and Blu Ray player only to find he was using a HDMI splitter.

This morning, for one of my online classes, I had to give a positive oral presentation about a play that I hated having to watch. I went into it completely unprepared and just winged it. My professor LOVED my presentation and thought it was excellent. She believed every word I said and honestly thought that I enjoyed that miserable play. Best April Fools ever!

Shame he wasn't around more. He seemed like such a jolly, happy soul.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 02:16 PM)

No, he was definitely Metroplex. You could tell because he was in Metroplex's distinctive red and green coloration.

@  Paladin : (27 March 2020 - 02:11 PM)

that was Leader-1. or possibly Jolt. maybe Grindor...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 01:57 PM)

Metroplex was in Armada, in a flashback. He was the same size as everybody else. I thought that was the joke.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (27 March 2020 - 12:39 PM)

@Rodimus Supreme: Gah! You are right! How'd I get that mixed up? x.x;

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 March 2020 - 12:14 PM)

There is no Metroplex. Only Zuul.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:13 AM)

@Tm_Silverclaw: There is no Armada Metroplex, he was in Cybertron.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:12 AM)

And they'd be better off just retooling Metroplex and Fortress Maximus to be somewhat more accurate and changing/adding parts for interaction with later play gimmicks.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:11 AM)

I honestly would prefer that for scale purposes.

@  Cyoti : (27 March 2020 - 11:07 AM)

They can redo all the CW combiners as Titan Class figures like Predaking/Devastator.

@  Dekafox : (27 March 2020 - 07:52 AM)

They could just redo Metroplex again too. Especially if it's going to be S3 based. They could also do another Primus to go with the coming Unicron.

I'm going to have to find a way to watch the 4th OVA.

 

So "That Time I got Reincarnated as a Slime" season 2 is starting in October, but is doing the same as SAO:A War of Underworld by braking the season in two cours separated by a winter break. :(

 

 

EXCEPT we are getting a Slime Diaries spin-off! I'm guessing it's going to be a season long slice of life comedy situation like the last two OVA's

So man the last Tenchi OVA and the current one is pretty much just railroading away towards War on Geminar. 3/4ths of the episodes of the 4th OVA set were working to Rea and Noboyuki's wedding and then we get fed all of Rea's background about coming from Geminar in the wedding episode which just confirms everything about making sure she has Kenshi to send back there. And the last episode is the entire Family working out everything possible to make sure he'll be prepared. I feel like Tenchi got pushed away out of his own series to set up a series that already aired. And the start of the 5th seems to be continuing that. >_<

 

Also I'm guessing Seina's series is set around the time of the first three episodes as he's already in space and when he comes home late in GXP Noboyuki and Rea are already expecting. They sure did talk about him a ton I was almost getting a bit miffed about him not making an appearance until the last episode of the 4th OVA.

 

Also I'm confused. Tenchi's mom was Yosho's Daughter. Yet it seems like a good portion of the Masaki family are aware of the families alien origins and said that Noboyuki wears a glamour similar to Yosho? And reading up on Wikipedia it sounds like Noboyuki and Kiyone (Tenchi's mom, not the Universe series partner for Mihoshi) are half siblings :doh Kiyone being Yosho with Airi and Noboyuki with Yosho and an earth woman?!

 

Then again Ayeka was supposed to be betrothed to Yosho too originally and their half siblings :doh "Tenchi Muyo!" has a really squicky look at keeping things in the family :drunk

Bingo and for the reacord not a huge fan of War but I was hoping for more for GPX and Tenchi shenanigans (spoilers) and to finding out what happen after Senia got kidnapped from his wedding at the end of GPX I love that motley crew

The comment was for the benefit of others, since I know there's been a lot of drama around him recently. I personally think he does fine as a voice, but have heard he isn't a good person and try not to let it deter me from enjoying a show he's done a voice in.

 

Also I actually don't own any FMA dvds. I have the two PS2 games though.

Kadokawa have another VR-themed anime based on an amateur web novel lined up already.

The main character's gimmick is... bears?

edit: Searching around, it might be like Overlord's deal of getting transported to another world via video game rather than just a matter of putting on VR gear. I can't say I understand what this actually is.

Unfortunately, it's pretty common for anime/manga live-action side projects to be cast to match what the fans of the product find appealing in terms of idols, rather than with people who fit the roles.

 

 

'Magia Record: Mahou Shoujo Madoka☆Magica Gaiden' Gets Second Season

 

This was clear from about episode 7, but I'm glad it was confirmed anyways.

Is this the new isekai? I mean I know Didn't I Ask To Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life? is an isekai, but it was more whatever this new genre is than that.

I've been watching Magia Record, honestly, it started out well but then the series seems to sidetrack and start going rapidly, like they don't have enough time to cover the whole story, but one thing I can't be critical of, is the animation, its just as good as the original series.

I think Magia Record's pacing in the second half was brilliant. Episodes 2-4 barely make sense outside of the bigger context, and in storytelling terms they're pretty poor.

 

However, I'll vouch for the show after that. They introduced Iroha's team really nicely, and the plot moved well basically since after Iroha learned about her... uh... "extra powers".

 

In terms of "covering the whole story"... I would say so far what's been presented to us is 3 hours of prologue (right up until about the end of episode 7) and then the very first movements of a story. I don't think they covered "Mahou Shoujo=Majo" very well, but that would have added like 3 episodes between 11 and 12 to do right, and it's mainly irrelevant to the story of this series and especially irrelevant to the audience, since presumably everybody has seen original Madoka already.

 

I also disliked how they introduced the Magius. It was a random tack-on at the end of a completely different type of episode, but I can't think of a convenient way to do that where you do one episode with it's own plot that still leads to the next.

 

It's pretty clear they're not trying to cover too much at once considering they put the "Mahou Shoujo=Majo" explanation right at the end of the first season, before any real plot points or resolutions can begin to manifest. That's being left for S2.
