@FullbringIchigo Looks decent. Watched a bit of anime (can't recalled which ones) when I was young so I'll be watching this when it releases.

Also, the makers behind Kill la Kill and Gurren Lagann have a new movie.

Huntin' monsters erryday.

@WanderingBullet that guy in the thumbnail is SO Kamina

@FullbringIchigo Yeah.lol Promare does seem to use a lot CG compared to the other two previous anime. I'm usually not big fan of anime that is CG heavy but based on trailer I think they've blended both traditional hand drawn animation and CG quite well in some of the scenes.

@WanderingBullet it actually looks pretty good, it probably wont get a UK release though sadly

@FullbringIchigo It'll most likely won't be screen here either. I'll have to wait for the DVD/Blu-ray since I doubt it'll be on Netflix.

@WanderingBullet to be fair the UK will be lucky to even get that

@FullbringIchigo I never finished my Maison Ikkoku DVD Set collection. Now all the ones I don't have are either unavailable or ridiculously expensive.

At least I finished my collection of the manga, though.

Current Games:

Astral Chain (Switch)

DOOM 3: BFG Edition (PC)

Paper Mario: The Origami King (Switch)

@Ralizah same with me and the Dragon Boxes, they go for hundreds now, i saw one for example a £399

it's ridiculous how much scalpers charge the greedy B*******, taking advantage of peoples fandom for their own personal greed, it should be illegal

"Now! This is it! Now is the time to choose! Die and be free of pain or live and fight your sorrow! Now is the time to shape your stories! Your fate is in your hands!

@FullbringIchigo Not really. It's just supply-and-demand. If you want a super OOP thing, then sellers are going to charge more, because rarity increases the item's value.

It is, of course, annoying being on the wrong end of that dynamic.

Not an anime thing, but there's a horror author I like, and he released a hardcover reissue of one of his older books for $30. I was a bit light on funds at the time and put off buying it at the time. A month later, it cost hundreds of dollars because of the apparently ridiculously small print run, and it hasn't gone down since. LOL

@Ralizah the issue is with things like limited run releases is the scalpers buy up all the stock themselves just so they can charge inflated prices afterwards, just look at what happened with the NES Mini when it first launched and that's what pisses me off, the B******* purposely create a shortage so they can jack the prices up

"Now! This is it! Now is the time to choose! Die and be free of pain or live and fight your sorrow! Now is the time to shape your stories! Your fate is in your hands!

@FullbringIchigo That only happens because these companies manufacture ridiculously low quantities of things in the first place. Although, in general, I think that anything with a small print run should be limited to one purchase per account. And, in fairness, I think most companies who release items with a small print run do just this. Scalpers are crafty devils, but there's absolutely nothing illegal (and shouldn't be, even if it's sort of morally dubious) about buying up and reselling rare items.

Companies like Nintendo need to do better market research in the first place and manufacture enough systems that these supply problems don't happen before the item even officially releases.

I've got my eye on the Pokemon Switch Lite, but I have no illusions that getting one will be easy.

@FullbringIchigo I usually order mine from Amazon but not many though since they can be are quite pricy at times.

Watching the trailer, reminded me that I still want to get Lupin the IIIrd: Goemon's Blood Spray Blu-ray but Amazon doesn't have it.

@KidBoruto unfortunately the UK doesn't get sales like that

Really suprised to see no one mention the story of the arsonist who set Kyoto Animation on fire today (I saw an article a few hours ago on Yahoo while at work).

It's apparently the deadliest arson Japan has seen in nearly 20 years, with dozens dead & dozens more injured. I haven't seen many of their series (I think just Eureka Seven & Deadman Wonderland, of which the former is one of my favorite anime series), but this is a terrible tragedy, and I pray for everyone affected.

@RR529 33 confirmed dead so far, I believe. While he hasn't been confirmed to be dead yet, the legendary Yasuhiro Takemoto is also missing.

Put it in your signature please. I know it's for a good cause but it can still be considered spam -Tasuki-

@RR529 Yeah, I read about it yesterday. It is really indeed sad news they lost the studio and workers from the fire.

Btw, isn't Eureka Seven by Studio Bones?

I'm trying to recall which KyoAni anime I've watched and I think A Silent Voice, Beyond the Boundary, K-On!, Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions, and Sound! Euphonium were by them. I didn't finished watching the latter three titles but I enjoyed the first three. Both A Silent Voice and Beyond the Boundary were especially great. Great animation quality in general for all the titles mentioned.

so anyone catch Knights of the Zodiac: Saint Seiya on Netflix yet, it's actually really good but it's also only 6 episodes long, not sure if that's all or if they are just releasing in batches like they sometimes do

Untitled

i also like that it takes the original story and sets it in the modern day, so people have smart phones and everything but it still strangely works

one downside is just like MANY other Toei shows it reuses scenes quite often (such as super attacks) but given that it's a CG series that to be expected plus the manga did it too anyway

"I pity you. You just don't get it at all...there's not a thing I don't cherish!"
