8ass X÷ has hijacked this conversation.

@  Bass X0 : (12 June 2021 - 03:37 AM)

Its Bass X0. I named myself after my three favourite Mega Man characters - Bass, X and Zero. I did consider going with Vile Bass X0, but that would have been going too far.

@  repowers : (11 June 2021 - 11:29 PM)

Bass XO has been trying to reach you about your car's extended warranty.

@  Echowarrior : (11 June 2021 - 09:25 PM)

Do not taunt Bass XO.

@  wonko the sane? : (11 June 2021 - 09:02 PM)

Please consult a technician before using Bass XO. Do not operate Bass XO while consuming alcohol.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 June 2021 - 04:48 PM)

Nine out of ten doctors recommend Bass XO. The last doctor is on my list.

@  Dekafox : (11 June 2021 - 01:51 PM)

Bass XO is available at these fine retailers.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 June 2021 - 02:01 AM)

Bass XO is not to be confused with Bay Sexo.

Bass XO is backward compatible with the Sega Master System.

@  Donocropolis : (09 June 2021 - 05:37 AM)

Bass XO has 9" long, dagger-like teeth and a 12,000 lb. bite force

@  repowers : (08 June 2021 - 07:26 PM)

Bass XO doesn't feel pain. He can't be reasoned with!

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 June 2021 - 02:57 PM)

Bass XO has no known weaknesses.

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2021 - 09:57 PM)

Had that happen once. Drilled a 1 mmhole in the peg and superglued a rivet into it for something to pull on.

@  tigerhawk : (22 May 2021 - 09:44 PM)

pliers, superglue, heat, nothing has worked so far but I had to take yesterday off due to pfizer side effects.

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2021 - 07:04 AM)

is there enough plastic sticking out to yank it out with pliers?

@  tigerhawk : (21 May 2021 - 01:05 PM)

Oh great my Legends Dai Atlas fell and the gun snapped in two, the handle is stuck in the port on top of the vehicle mode.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2021 - 04:14 AM)

Also, our compound terms are legendary among foreigners, because we throw them together as a single word, with no spaces and usually without hyphens too.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2021 - 04:12 AM)

You can have straightforward sentences that are a literal word-replace translation of stuff like "I go to school", but once you throw in perfect tense and prepositions, you end up with insane constructions where the main verb is at the very end of a very long sentence, so you have to listen to the whole sentence until you have any clue what is going on.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2021 - 04:10 AM)

And I stand by that. German sentence structure can be utterly insane.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2021 - 04:10 AM)

Fun fact: When I was teaching German kids English, I kept telling them that English grammar and especially sentence structure is more logical than German.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2021 - 01:17 AM)

e.g. Lion-Eating Poet in the Stone Den was by a Chinese guy pointing out the weirdness in his own language, rather than the frustrations of somebody learning Chinese as their second. So English isn't the only case where native speakers might enocunter funky issues.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 May 2021 - 01:17 AM)

Then I shall concede, and retire.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2021 - 01:14 AM)

I'm not sure if that's even all that unique to English.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 May 2021 - 01:07 AM)

Which is why I specified those comparing learning it to learning other languages as a second language.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2021 - 01:04 AM)

And I don't think "ancedotal frustration" means much, considering that every language has complaints from people trying to learn it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2021 - 01:03 AM)

The fact that these stand out certainly makes Japanese "not a smoothie". And it's only consistent within more recent loanwords. Older ones stick out in a different way.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 May 2021 - 01:00 AM)

Even writing them generally in katakana is a consistent treatment, and gives someone learning the language a general expected approach. I'd say the anecdotal frustration with English by those learning it compared to learning other languages as a second language is a demonstration that this sort of consistency and organization was not a valued thing in the past few centuries of the language's development.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2021 - 12:28 AM)

Frankly, it just sounds like you think other languages seem a certain way because you don't look into them all that much.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2021 - 12:28 AM)

It's pretty pervasive in Japanese as well, with how these feature into everyday speech.. And I don't know what you even mean by "deep", since writing them in a particular character set basically calls attention to not just their derivative nature, but their relative recency as well.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 May 2021 - 12:25 AM)

Indeed, every language has those artifacts if you examine deeply enough, but in English they're not deep, and they're pervasive.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 May 2021 - 11:56 PM)

like Japanese using three different script types together, and more recent word borrowings tend to be in katakana.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 May 2021 - 11:51 PM)

I don't know what you mean by "cohesively". Borrowings are probably obvious if you know what to look for.

Whoops, yeah, that's what I should have written.

Here's one with the old Japanese intro Oversoul song on the new intro. No editing, I think.



Saw the first ep btw. Was Mosuke that stocky before?

Seeing as the second season was announced a little over a month after the first, presumably it'll take a similar amount of time for the next part of the anime to get announced.

Well you werent wrong about Quintessential Quintuplets.

Maaan, I'm so worried about the Todoroki, Iida, Shoji and Ojiro team!

It's obvious that Todoroki and Ojiro will beat Tetsutetsu and the Spiral guy (since Ojiro has only been dodging so next ep, he will obviously unleash a cool new move).

But Iida showed his new move early so, similar to what happened to Tokoyami, he will lose in the next ep. Plus Mudman seems to be very smart.

Pony will obviously win. Not cuz Shoji is weak or has no long range attacks but cuz she's the cute character. Haha

Hopefully there will not be any bad CGI creatures from this point forth, whatever those creatures he summoned during the last season were horrible, the Goblin Army I could handle, hell that made me laugh when we got Ainz's reaction to its sudden appearance and the item he gave away.

Apologies if anyone else has mentioned this before, but I haven't read this thread in ages and didn't feel like spending the time to catch up. Those of you who read my Beefcake thread in Mayhem already know this.

Fairy Ranmaru is on Crunchyroll. It's a magical boy series featuring fairies ranging from smol to beefy. The first 5 EPs are out. I'm not 100% sure what it's really about yet. The main draw, of course, is the guys and the fanservice. The fairy forms of these guys actually have nipples and crotches and... I can't directly post the fun vids b/c they're not board safe. :D They also adjust the lewdness depending on which char is the focus.

I know this thread is mostly about recent and new series, BUT....

 

If you guys fancy some old school anime, www.retrocrush.tv has a BUNCH of older anime series for ADVOD viewing.  Library is still quite modest, but has been growing.  They recently added a huge load of City Hunter and the Star Ocean anime series.  It's run by a group called "Digital Media Rights" who've picked up a bunch of lapsed anime licenses.  A LOT of their stuff has also appeared on platforms like Pluto and Tubi, but RetroCrush is better maintained in organization.

 

Library seems comparable to HiDive's, minus RC being more retro focused than HD.

Just caught up with the latest ep of Eren's Zero, honestly, I'm loving this series so far, the power system so far isn't broken like a lot of other anime of the same type.

 

Also been watching that time I got Reincarnated as a Slime, I'm about halfway through the first season and its pretty good

There's a slice-of-life comedy spinoff/side-story called Slime Diaries that's airing now, but which seems to be set vaguely between seasons one and two (season 2A ends with a cataclysmic sequence of events, so the Diaries are basically a flashback to happier days).

A couple days late but just found out that the creator of Berserk, Kentaro Miura, had passed away.

 

Kentaro Miura, the world-famous creator of the manga Berserk, has passed away at the age of 54. According to a statement by the editorial department of Young Animal Comics, where Berserk is serialized in Japan, he died on May 6 as a result of acute aortic dissection.

 

Plenty of people had wondered over the years if he'd ever actually finish Berserk in his lifetime, but to die at 54 is still so young it's tragic. Even unfinished though what he leaves behind is a fantasy masterpiece. The 1997 anime is one of my favorites and also one of the very rare times I felt compelled to pick up the manga because I absolutely had to know what happened next. I'm glad I did not just to continue the story but to appreciate the insane detail and quality that went into his art.

 

The story has a reputation for brutally dark fantasy nihilism and while it does have that in spades and I adore it, it's also a story of struggling through that. A man consumed with revenge who lost just about everything but claws back his humanity by making friends and a family to protect.

 

 

 

I could be disappointed there won't be a conclusion but I'm instead grateful that he spent his life creating a work that I enjoyed so much and often moved me. As a bonus it introduced me to the music of Susumu Hirasawa who has done soundtrack work for the anime and games and is a genius in his own right.

I'm aware of its existance, I just finished the main series just a little while ago and moving onto the OVAs before checking out the Diraries series. Overall, the series is pretty good, that nation that invaded, I would pretty much say payback is a b****!! I did laugh at the password scene, someone going to end up with extreme posion resistance skill after that!

I've currently been enjoying the wonderful slice of life that "The Saint's Magic Power is Omnipotent" has been offering up. Really it's nothing special as a story but the animation looks wonderful and I'm a sucker for for a cute romance. That and the op is beautiful.
