@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:34 PM)

Or do Japan's cultural values vary depending on exactly who you're trying to shut down?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Could it be that, perhaps, these different cultural values might lead to a different approach seeming appropriate?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Hm. Back when we were arguing about the Legends comic, I seem to recall being repeatedly told that Japan had different cultural values than the US (and therefore anyone who had a problem with anything at all was wrong to voice that opinion ever).

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:23 AM)

Plus, as much as I hate to admit it, every single anime character is built to suit the audience's tastes so they buy more merch/do other things that allow $$$ to flow in the production committees direction, so the authenticity is certainly not for representation's sake.

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Both those anime air at midnight and are aimed at a very specific audience in a whole other media landscape. Major projects have press releases about almost everything, and there are groups just waiting to pat anybody on the back for doing what they want (GLAAD, HRC, etc)

@  B-Fox : (19 February 2020 - 03:16 AM)

It's funny that a friggin' anime about zombie idols and an anime about a school of anthropomorphic animals can have really positive trans characters WITHOUT a press release about their inclusion in the series prior to the episodes airing or having the creators announcing it on social media and patting themselves on the back for doing a thing.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Vegans are better than kids if you don't talk to them. They'll keep the lawn trimmed anyway.

Hook up your sprinkler system to a canister of healthy organic carrot-juice. The kids won't be able to get off your lawn fast enough.

Japan seems to have a tradition of murder things where cellphones facilitate the killing instead. Like King's Game and Doubt.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 05:17 PM)

Or there's just conveniently no reception, or all of their phones are dead at the same time. Or they're just stupid and forget about them.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 03:54 PM)

Think of all the horror and mystery movies that involve the bad guys cutting the phone line. Now think about how many people don't even have a land line to cut anymore.

@  Telly : (16 February 2020 - 03:47 PM)

You people discussing the science of this are part of the reason why Red Dwarf is some of the only live action sci-fi I can stand. Really, four guys on a spaceship within infinite amount of time to kill. Rock on.

That too. Well, that first probably.

I always saw red dwarf as a writers chance to absolutely torture his/her characters. It can't end well no matter how you dice it. They either die in space horribly, die in space of old age, or make it to earth just to discover... something probably horrible happened to the planet/species/solar system.

Those could still be the same Lister, since the Cyborg one was alot older, and had children, which most likely would have come about with a woman's involvement, as his pregnancy turned out to be a lie.

I mean the one in the past was there due to those time portals, which were two way. There's no reason he couldn't have gone back to Red Dwarf after that encounter with his younger self.

The pregnancy wasn't a lie! The babies got sent to the reversed-gender universe, as per the super-fast exposition scroll at the beginning.

Or so my memories from 20-someodd years ago tell me.

Huh. I have literally no recollection of that whatsoever, but fair enough.

Still, no reason those two future Listers can't be the same version from two different points in the time line.

Yeah, some finality there would be nice.

I figured they just tuned the mirror to some relatively close reality to what they had (namely, an empty red dwarf.) and jumped ship. Since back to earth has them on a rather empty (and spectacularly rendered.) crimson short one.

I guess they just moved one or two universes to the side. Just enough to skip reviving the crew and the nanobot plaque.

I'd be more excited if Naylor took a step back into more of a showrunner-type role and allowed some new writers to come in.  There were some bright moments in the last two series, but they were spaced out by a lot of jokes that didn't land with me.

Back to Earth was close for me, as too much of it felt like retreading their most popular material. X showed though that it could still be good, and I enjoyed it much more.
