    Bandai DX VF-31

    I'll do through CDJ if they get it, that way I get the points too. Just have to have the funds earlier for the PO.

    Bandai DX VF-31

    Might have to ask for a favor then, less someone can point me in the direction of some (hopefully) simple instructions to ordering the TWE from the US. Thanks in advance on both points.

    Bandai DX VF-31

    Well gives me time to save up, and if this is just for the armour then I'll have to repaint it for my VF-31C. I hope that this will be available through HLJ, but my guts is telling me it will be a web exclusive.
  4. Sorry for the lateness. What I thought was the barking Tank! wasn't what I thought it was. Since it wasn't under the Tank title I had to listen to the discography. Song is Wandering Cowboy (Ein) on the Cowboy Bebop Boxed Set (2002). It's a remix of the Tank! melody with Ein barking every now and again. There is a better version with Ed (Aoi ED Tada) if interested.

    Netflix: The Umbrella Academy

    Me and my group binged this last weekend. Personally I thought it was ok, the time travel and paradoxes was a neat hook. Saw the ending coming a mile away, but was still a fun ride. Never read the comic but my buddy (who requested we watch it in the first place) stated it was close enough though deviates from the comic just after the halfway mark. The tone and general feel was still kept up though the end. So if you didn't mind what the MCU did with it's source material then this adaption shouldn't be too bad for readers of the original series.
  6. Basically the events shown in the closing. Figured but one could hope.
  7. Honestly this has been keeping me in the series, granted the last ep was a bore, need more politics with the other kingdoms soon. It's also keeps me in Sheildbro due to what he gets saddled with soon. Like to see him turn what seems like a POS into his own nation just to spite the princess.
  8. About the barking Tank, there is a track of that in one of the Seatbelt albums. I'll track it down tomorrow.

    What Current Manga Are You Reading?

    The mecha in the series have so little screen time I had forgotten about that. Will look into it. Thanks.

    What Current Manga Are You Reading?

    That's fine, figured I look for an alternate. Also speaking of mecha books, does anyone know of a LN that has mecha in it. Need to find one for research, it doesn't need to be in english btw. Thanks in advance.

    So checked and if you don't mind digital, Bookwalker has each vol up to 15 for $7.90 each or you can just drop $84 for the bundle (1-15). If you don't have bookwalker check out some ani-tubers and in general someone has a discount code for your first purchase.

    Retro Gaming

    No lag that I noticed and I use it mostly to play Macross Delta Scramble.

    Aoshima VFG

    So I have a few questions for a crazy idea I have to my 'spare' VFG. 1) I'm not too hot on the 31A design, I like my forward swept wings more then the delta wing design. If some-one wants to swap me their 31J for my 31A I can work out a trade. 2) Does anyone know the scale of the girl, need to know to get the proper accessories from shapeways.
  14. The second season has some bad pacing issues, otherwise the series overall is really good and the dub is on par with the original voice cast.

    Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

    I mean, the fighter and gerwalk modes are spot-on/close to the original. I think the scale is just under 1:72. Once I get out from my 40K and start working on these I'll confirm. Heck if some one offered me a vf-31 I'd swap the kairos for it. I only got the 31A for the cat-girl.

    Retro Gaming

    From what I've seen on my 70" for PSTV, the graphics aren't too bad. I can see individual pixels but not to the point that it takes away from the games.

    Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

    Got an order form HLJ in, this will be my last for a while. At least I got enough stands for the kits I have to get to work on.

    What Current Manga Are You Reading?

    Looking at this I kind of want to pick up some of my old mangas for a re-read and see about completing a few collections. Only currently running manga I've hit was Honor Student at Magic High School, mostly due to me being a fan on the LN and anime Irregular at Magic High School. Having hit this franchise from all three side the manga is pretty good for a shoujo manga. General premise is it's a retelling of the events in the LN from the prospective of Miyuki (Tatsuya's sister) as well as side arcs about some of the other girls in her class. Older ones I want to get the full run of are Hyper Police, Gunslinger Girls (would pay JPN prices for an Italian dub) and Lucky Star.
  19. If the series has enough of my attention then I'll get the LN (happened with Irregular and No Game). For Lord marksman most of the appeal for me is the art so it's kind of lost in written form. Same goes for Violet Evergarden, though the story is really close to getting my urge to continue.
  20. It should but most likely won't. It's part of the current trend of making an anime based on a LN so you'll buy the LN to get the rest of the story.
  21. Honestly the only reason I've seen the last few star wars movies in theater was because it was part of a family outing and I have a hard time saying no to a free show, even if it was trash fire.

    Gen:Lock from Rooster Teeth

    I got thru both eps (thank you VrV), loved Tennant in the second ep. He works well as the semi-crazy scientist. I'm not sure on the OverWatch mech squad they have assembled, but hopefully that will flush out as the series goes on.
  23. I hope it gets more episodes, I don't want this to be another Irregular. Though if it does at least release the LNs faster.

    The Batman - June 25, 2021

    What you are asking for is a Batman Beyond movie, to which I would pay gratefully to see.
  25. Agreed. Read the wiki after hearing of a tigger warning in ep4 (it's not one, but it will make you hate someone even more) and can't wait til it crosses over some of Slime's territory. Like to see how Shield bro handles this.
