    I can't wait till the crew read or watches the manga or movie coming out for "A Silent Voice", I would really like to hear their option on it. I love the manga, personally! (I don't believe the movie is out, I haven't watch it if it is)  :) On Crunchyroll btw! Do you guys thing Fan Service should do popular magna that isn't anime yet?

    Once again, too many people once Mica joined.  Please have a max of 5 at the table (4 is still the best), otherwise the dynamic changes too much and it becomes hard to keep track of.  If you want to have a guest, please have Cole step off after he's done with Cole explains.

    I think they've made it pretty clear that Yuuri is going to retire after this skating season. Can only see him not retiring if he win gold in the Gran Prix which I don't think is going to happen.

    I haven't watched Attack on Titan season 1 yet, but I just wrapped up a lot of projects and will have some viewing time. Essential question: sub or dub?

    • AutumnOnFire FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold How may I be of service?

      1 month ago

      sub

    • farson135 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      I give a slight advantage to dub in most action series because English is a more aggressive sounding language, and it has a better range for action scenes. Since Funimation did a really good job with the AoT dub. Advantage dub. 


      In the dub vs sub debate there is one thing I usually say. It is very difficult to screw up a sub (though Sentai has made a go of it), but when was the last time you looked at a sub and thought it was amazing? On the other hand, it is very easy to screw up a dub, but we can all think of a few amazing dubs. AoT is not Baccino or Black Lagoon, but it is very good. 


      Overall, it doesn't matter. They are both fine.

    I am so happy that Mica was on this one~! Yuri!!! on Ice is absolutely beautiful and as soon as I heard the initial announcement for a figure skating anime I knew I would be ALL OVER IT. But my gosh the representation in this anime!! If only real life was so kind... But JOHNNY FREAKING WEIR WATCHING IT OMG.

    Hm? Are there no Kimi no Na Wa screenings in Texas? I watched the film last week. I don't go to the cinemas often and really didn't want to cry at the cinemas... but I did. I've watched Garden of Words and didn't even finish 5 centimetres and found them so boring but man, Your Name was so pretty and captivating. Totally worth watching it on the big screen!!! I feel kind of frustrated hearing that you guys watched it on a small screen lol. It's so beautiful! Gah!!


    Also Yssa eyeing the tit during Cole Explains lmfao


    Mica is a blessing. Love all the guests that have been on!! Also this episode made me so jealous--gahhh I want to go to Japan someday too!!

    I have two stories while I was in Japan this past January as part of a study abroad course


    1. I was on my way to walking towards the Giant Gundam while my friends went to the Venus Fort, a famous nearby mall that looks like you're in Venice, Italy. While I was walking, these kid on bike were going riding in the opposite direction. One of them had a Minion in his basket on his bike, and at the time I was wearing my Yang beanie(like in my profile pic). The kid with the minion pointed at me and went "Oh minions, Nice one." and at the time I was super out of it because I just arrived to Tokyo that morning, I really wanted to stop him and try to tell him that it was RWBY and not Minions. 


    2. This story might be a little NSFW, but then again, Cole talks about Keijo every other week; This was when I was in Akihabara, for like the fourth time that trip, when we had a free day to do what we wanted. My friends and I went to the main building, probably the same one that Miles, Kerry, and Gray went to, just doing some window shopping and scouting things to buy on our last day before we leave. While my buddy Brian and I were on the manga floor, I needed to use the restroom, and I didn't see any signs on that floor to where it was, so i assumed it would be in the back of the story where there weren't any books. As I turn the corner of these wide bookshelf, I see a guy going to town jerking off to this anime cardboard cutout. It was only for a split second, but I saw enough to know what was going on. I ran back to Brian you was literally on the other side of this bookshelf and I say to him "Brian we need to get the fuck outta here, I just saw a guy jerking off in the corner of the store over there."


    Later, on our last day, we go do our last minute shopping, and I thought of the brilliant idea to see what the guy was looking at to get his rocks off. And amongst the anime cutouts, there was this single one that was similar to the Keijo one Miles mentioned; a scantily clad elf looking character with the mouse pad boobs on her chest.... And I think the floor was a little sticky too....

    I feel a bit bad for fans of Attack on Titan who only have seen the anime. It's a good anime, don't get me wrong, but the manga is so far ahead in terms of the plot at this point that the anime will take at least 2 more seasons to catch up to it. There are also several elements that I'm worried they'll condense/cut out of the anime, such as all the conspiracy stuff and Eren's psychological state (which has never been good, to be fair).


    I'm sure anime-only watchers still love it, but if you like the universe I encourage you to read the manga. It's much more complex than the anime would make it seem. 


    (I'll still be watching S2 when it airs of course. I'm excited for more Ymir and potentially best boy Zeke. Also hoping they cover the Kenny arc, but I'm not sure if they'll get that far.)


    PS VICTOR AND YUURI ARE ENGAGED AND IT IS WONDERFUL.


    EDIT: Completely agree with Mica about YOI. Everything about it is beautiful.

      @Invader-Jim Oh Jesus, I couldn't imagine lol. It's bad enough liking Negima!, which got two terrible "adaptations" that just did their own thing, but Berserk seems pretty fucked in terms of its anime :x.

      I started reading the manga after I finished season 1 immediately- however I just kind of stopped keeping up with it after volume 15 (and I pre-ordered that volume too) I just sort of got bored.


      I mean it's great that they're finally releasing series 2 and I get why they had to postpone it- but at the same time I feel like they've lost a part of the fandom that has just moved onto other shows (YOI for example).


      I'm probably wrong but that's just how I see it.

      Still- HYPE TRAIN FOR SERIES 2!

      Well, I wasn't specifically referring to the quality of said anime's and movies which is a monstrous debate all in of itself, more that we got season one 65 and a half years ago complete with reearranged plot and removed/added characters. 


      Then when they announced dem shiny new movies I stupidly allowed people to get me hyped with the thought of them actually continuing the story and if successful, making more until they basically caught up even if that made no logical sense (this is why misguided hope is very bad kids) but thankfully retold the story covered in the anime from last century much more faithfully to the source.


      THEN after many moar years of waiting we score an anime that is so polarising due to the cost saving methods used to produce it and the power the internet affords crybaby betas err, I mean fans, yea, that it's second season was almost cancelled.


      AND TO TOP IT ALL OFF Kentaru FUCKING Miiura the King of Trolls went on another indefinite hiatus less than a month from officially announcing regular updates (which he honoured for a bit) only to leave us stranded in a tree full of bloody fairies! Well, at least we are out of the boat.....


      Being a fan of Berserk is like being in an abusive relationship.


      Sorry for that rant, wasn't meant to be that long. 

      This Negima stuff, I would prefer to watch only one, so should it be the initial series or the comedy/action focused remake? If it is best to watch the original to get the most from the remake, I'll just have to add it on the list that's perpetually almost finished.

    Grey thought Kabaneri was really good? That's surprising considering most of everybody thought it was really bad. It had a pretty strong start and got really shit about 4-5 episodes in and then the ending was garbage.

      Problem is almost everybody hated it purely based on the fact that it wasn't AoT s2. Though it lost steam towards the end, I thought the first half was still awesome enough to warrant a good rating overall.

    I'm so, so happy for the boys (aka three of the main honeys) that got to have an amazing adventure abroad, and get cool toys, and do some secret business meeting stuff, and eat actual pork cutlet bowls (!!!), and bask in the love that Japan has for RWBY. I hope they get to go back soon. There was so much to talk about from episodes 8-10 of Yuri that they weren't able to touch on the huge airport scene or some of the funnier subtleties of the storytelling, but I don't even care because it was awesome to hear them talk about so much of their Japan trip. 


    And Miles, I'm especially happy for you having the best moment of your life singing and dancing to PPAP with some kiddos. You're a precious cinnamon roll after all.
