    Why SD Valkyries? WHY?

    I have a set of clear Toynami morphers.. with a collectors cell... somewhere... I thought they were pretty silly IMO. I ended up Going all in on the KC SD Valks.. I have everything out except for the fokker 1S.. which reminds me I need to send them an email about that. I was using them as toppers for my SDF Macross Pachislo machine.. they replaced the HMR valks that replaced my original topper, which was a Max and Millia Super Posables from toynami.
  2. haha lmao.. seriously though these titles now are turning into full on sentences.. Full title is.. What Do You Do at the End of the World? Are You Busy? Will You Save Us?
  3. Rascal Does not Dream of Bunny Girl, blah blah blah.. was the breakout of last season IMO. Sad part is Aniplex has the rights to it, so expect an overpriced blu-ray if you want it. I was On Call this weekend so I was chained to the station which left me with lots of free time.. I finished World End.. Blah blah blah long title. The series was interesting, I think I will need to rewatch this title as I kept getting interrupted but it was refreshing coming off the drek that was Rosario Crapfest. I also got through most of High Score Girl, considering the main heroine says absolutely nothing the entire series I actually am enjoying it. Feel kinda sorry for the blonde in this series. The main heroine seems pretty 1 dimensional because she never says anything.
  4. Rosario Vampire Season 2 might be one of the worst anime's I have ever seen in my life. The first season was very bland, and while not terrible the premise was stale by the beginning of the 2nd season. The 2nd season took everything from the first and made it SUPER awkward. The main protagonist is your typical vanilla clueless and gutless lead, and this gets amplified when they start hinting at something bigger, just to end the show when he starts to stop being gutless.. -5/10 yes I went negative This is a shame as I have read most if not all of the manga series and it's actually not bad.

    Kitz Concept Robotech Toy Line

    I think that since this is a new endeavor for KC, and not knowing if this will sell.. you have to pick what your battles. And Fokker's 1S is a hill that makes sense in a retail standpoint to die on. Hikki's 1J will probably be right on it's heels if this is profitable.

    Kitz Concept Robotech Toy Line

    Doesn't look bad.. the stand could probably use a coat of flat black or something to make it less obnoxious.
  7. Honestly I think this was a poor anime adaptation of the source material. But your not the first person to mention this, I read the manga first and couldn't get past 2 episodes. The people who enjoyed this were first time viewers for the most part. The manga is good enough for me to recommend.. the anime... not so much. I slogged my way through the first season of Rosario Vampire.. and meh. I have read the source material for this series as well, as @Seto Kaiba mentioned previously and enjoyed it. The anime is a far cry from that at least as of the 1st season.
  8. Just wrapped up Eureka 7.. I dropped this series when it first came out because the characters were annoying.. I gave it a go again since I got the blu-ray cheap and my initial observations still stand. 50 episodes was too long for this series and the amount of teen angst and drama really drags this down. While overall I would give this series a 6.5/10 it is mediocre at best, never understood the hype behind it. Also finished Chivalry of a Failed Knight another title I picked up cheaply. This probably had some good source material, but the anime did not convey it very well. It started with a fanservice scene right off the bat so you knew where this was going. It spent more time on pointless fights early on, and then totally blew the last and only fight that I was looking forward to watching in the last episode. Then explained it all away with anime magica or something. I know I am being harsher then I should be since I picked this up cheap, but it deserves the bargain bin treatment. 4/10 Next on my list is What Do You Do at the End of the World? Are You Busy? Will You Save Us? and Rosario Vampire.. WorldEnd has my interest, Rosario Vampire.. not at all. Gonna take abit of a break first though Eureka 7 wiped me out.

    All things Voltron

    well lets discuss the "gay" character then. The whole Shiro is gay thing comes right out of left field.. it had no plot merit, and his partner is killed off in what.. 5 min? I can't look at that any other way then pandering to a specific fansbase.. Why kill the partner off so quick if it was to be a thing? 2nd.. the last scene Wedding.. really? Again right out of left field... no plot merit.. closing scene and... there it is. so Fail.

    All things Voltron

    Sorry, but this series was bad beyond just the SJW inserts.. Yes this series went Woke.. but that is not my only issue with this reboot. This should have been named Paladins.. not Voltron. The robot title character literally disappears for a good part of the story more so early on. This leads to some of the most boring content of this series.. and 1 season where literally nothing worth noting happens.
  11. Chugging along on a rewatch of Eureka 7. Currently on ep 20 out of 50. I remember watching parts of this series back when it first came out and I dropped it. Also started back up with Index 3 again.. I think the creator of this series just wanted to toss in random English words, and needed a reason.. the sheer number of random groups with English names is silly (School, Item, Member) The plot is so far gone at this point, I don't know who is on who's side and Accelerator is the only real redeeming character and that is stretching it. Ultimately I may end up dropping this franchise, which is a shame since this was one of my favorites.
  12. I think this series was the breakout title of this season. Possibly one of the best of 2018. SSSS.Gridman was also pretty good, more so then I expected.

    Hi-Metal R

    so in other news... Any additional information on any other VF-4 releases.. I saw the Max and Millia versions, and have been getting the itch.. lol
  14. Stampeed Valkyrie

    This was bound to happen...gray market VF's?

    My order just came in. Not much to comment on that hasn't been said already. Overall quality is pretty good and I am happy with this purchase.

    All things Voltron

    So I Just finished the 8th Season of Woketron Legendary lameness and good riddance. It had much promise in the first few seasons.. then they went Woke.. and then it all went to crap. I'd take Voltron 3D over this dumpster fire.

    This was bound to happen...gray market VF's?

    Probably no customs.. I have my hands full with restoring other things.. let alone toys. I never went down the Yammy V2 route so probably good for display or the office at work.

    lol I was told to cut back my sodium intake by my Dr.. this thread just got salty!
  18. Stampeed Valkyrie

    This was bound to happen...gray market VF's?

    I ended up pulling the trigger on the Fokker 1S and a Super/Strike set and the DYRL Strike Hikaru 1S. I was looking at the stands but too pricey IMO. Between these and the Kitzconcepts valk coming soon I should have a plethora of KO valks.
  19. Index 3 is now on the back burner.. with all the holiday sales I have a large backlog of DVD/Blu rays to churn through. Sakamoto was meh.. I don't remember actually finishing it. Rail Wars.. again meh.. it should have been renamed boob wars.. if your into trains you will probably like it. Other then that it was pretty average, I watched it once and would not go out of my way to watch it again. I just wrapped up Plastic Memories... highly disappointed with this title. It started out really well and the writers just got lazy tossing out all the main plot points to write a love story about a boy and his robot... blah. Next up for me is Saekano (How to raise a boring girlfriend) I have watched the 2nd season of this already but never got around to watching the first.. so here it goes.
  20. I finally started watching the 3rd season of Index... Episode 5 currently.. and something is missing. After a re watch of the 1st and 2nd season, the 1st season was definitely the strongest of the 3 so far.. by the 2nd season Touma (sp?) was getting pretty wordy during his fights which got irritating. Now the 3rd season starts and the story is pretty absurd at this point.. I don't want to go into any spoilers for those that haven't seen it but the course of events seems to get more absurd as I progress. It's still too early to judge.. since I am only 5 episodes in so I am keeping my fingers crossed this starts to make sense.

    All things Voltron

    Yes you can do either lions or Voltron.. the lions look OK.. limited range of motion with the legs.. but still pretty neat. Voltron is where its at.. the range of motion with all the ball joints is really impressive. The hardest part about these is the application of stickers.. other then that pretty easy to assemble. I ended up getting 3 of them, 2 for me and 1 as a gift.. if you plan on getting them look on the JP side.. the cost of admission in the US will net you 2 from Japan.
  22. Well thanks to Sentai's black Friday sale, I ended up picking up more then 10 different series on the real cheap.. So starting things off.. Yusibu "I Couldn't Become a Hero So I Reluctantly Decided to Get a Job" I find this series to be a mixed bag.. Very heavy on the fan-service.. The plot kinda stumbles around and the premise is rather boring. Sub only.. (Thank god) but not something I would openly recommend unless you want your fill of Oppai. Himouto! Umaru-chan.. I don't really have anything nice to say about this title. I found the main character to be outright annoying and the running gag of this series is never really funny, let alone for 1 cour. What amuses me about this title is how much hype it garnered and continues to be popular.. I'd rather go visit the dentist. Bakuon!! I have yet to finish this series but so far so good. Out of the 3 this one actually has some relevant humor. I can see why everyone likes Rin.. 2 reasons.. just sayin. Overall I am about halfway through this title and it's managed to beat my expectations.. worth checking out. I'll come back and add more to this once I finish it. So 3 down and a boat load more to go.

    This was easier to PO then the VF-4. I just got my order in from Ami-Ami without issue.

    All things Voltron

    @obakesan very nice... the lego Voltron looks pretty neat, I just finished building my Mini-Pla Voltron... probably the most poseable voltron I have ever seen, and probably comes up to one of the knees on either of the above voltrons.. lol
  25. Violet Evergarden is not a show for everyone.. the story is not fast paced, but it does a good job conveying its message none the less. Not the greatest series ever, but not a waste of time. I need to watch Girls Last Tour.. I have a friend who loves this series and I can't seem to get into it. I am nearing the end of a rewatch of the 2nd season of Index... before I jump into the 3rd.. Touma needs to tone down the preaching in this series.. other then that it's OK. First season was better.. IMO.
