  1. That is my leaning too even though I have her old 31 already. At least if the up-gunning is the same on them all. I just like the colour.
  2. Considering how much Delta curbed from Frontier and now this new fighter I'm going to place money on General Galaxy being the big bad as they are going after the ship Roid used to take over all of humanity for all of 5 minutes.
  3. Oh yeah. I need to go thru S2 soon. I was howling at the last scene of S1 cause that literally happened to me once in a RP.
  4. Binged through 86 and it was enjoyable, all but ep 12 as it was a full recap of the season. Interested to see S2 as the promo image now makes so much sense it made me go "Oh shiii.." Also started Odd Taxi and if what I've heard is even half true it will be an enjoyable ride. Liking what I'm seeing so far. Vivy is on my watch list, but might not get to it until I actually finish the several projects I've taken on.
  5. Much like @TangledThornsI'm in it for the pew pew. Knew how bad the writing was going to be since Marauder. If I want well written Starship Troopers I'll read the book. Just in it for the action, which the preview seemed to offer.
  6. Technically if you VPN yourself in Japan you can watch Frontier and Delta on Netflix, issue is that there are no subtitles.
  7. It started off ok and just plowed into a crap ending. Like original Eva ending bad.
  8. Well their keeping to the greek name convention, but the name does actually make sense in context of the philosopher's ruminations. Point of view was a minor point in the series as is the showmanship of the group. I won't be surprised if our mystery enemy is attacking based on perceived intel instead of actual recon, ie the subjective and objective experiences of the characters.
  9. My only complaint with this is that they didn't post Flashback with subtitles. That would have been amazing and hope they do a re-release of all the franchise with subs at least.
  10. Little of column A, little of column B? Honestly the dramatized event angle works for Macross as I highly doubt singing would be as powerful in the 'real world'. A decent example even in anime I think is in Gundam Seed cause I remember Lacus trying to pull a Minmay with a more realistic result.
  11. Oh just wait till the house party in S2, that will have you rolling.
  12. We technically already have proper english subs for Delta. Their just really expensive.
  13. Oh gods I used to have the originals of these. Might need to follow cause I always wanted their tier 3 suits.
  14. Yeah, friend showed this to me last month. I have never wanted a mob boss to win so much as I did in this movie.
  15. Sounds about the right reaction. From what I've heard S2 is his redemption arc of sorts, which with the grave his dug himself that has to be one hell of a climb and explains why people are loving it now.
  16. Welp that's another scene off the OP bingo card. If the hero shows up after this that will confirm the time displacement between the two plot lines.
  17. Maybe, honestly the catgirl ones were what spurred me to start collecting. Might have only gotten one or two to make my pathfinder bard conversion and stopped instead of the half dozen I have now.
  18. Oh I know that already. Since Shield Hero I have a tendency to do a little bit of wiki research on series I have an interest in. I'm in a series for the journey, but if the destination is particularly bad then if after a few eps I'm not sold I get off the bus. (looking at you AoT). Found out the spider's fate rather quickly and I'm good.
  19. Goldem Boy is short and bloody hilarious. Kintaro Oi was an inspiration.
  20. Saw this over the weekend, glad to see they aren't skipping arcs whole sale. Was worried when season 2 was stated to be the Visitor arc. Once I fix my funk mood I need to catch up on season 2. Going to try the dubbed version to see how well they did. Also heard they are adapting Honor Student as well. I'm hoping they do it in the bishounen style like Sailor Moon or Fruits Basket as it would fit the manga. As part of the group watch: Dr. Stone - was disappointed that the tank didn't look like the one in the opening. Still waiting to see if Tsukasa just one shots it or if one of his side-kicks do. Still neat how Senku is Macguyvering all this future tech. So I'm a Spider, So What - Seems that one mystery from the opening is close to being solved. Hugo seems ready to go full barbarian king (at least that's how he looks in the opening) last episode. There is a theory in my watch group that we have a time distortion as so far all the classroom seemed to have been born at the same time but the human ones are all in their teens and the spider has only been around for at best a month. I'm guessing this is a nurture vs nature allegory at least if the opening is any hint at what is to come and it seems spoilertastic. Higurashi GOU- Well the torch got passed, just when we thought we were finally out of the loops someone brings us crashing in. At least now the lack of a closing animation made sense for the last few episodes as it spoils what happens in the most recent one. Log Horizon S3 - last two episodes were a side story of what happened to Crusty after the events of S2. It was weird but a little helpful that it was done in the form of a puppet show for the members of Log Horizon. Jobless Reincarnation - Story seems to be moving forward now. At least Rudeus is showing his smart enough to play politics once he has the information. His uncle is up to something, just doesn't want to pull the trigger until he has a fall guy. Eris is a full blown tsundere, but is warming up. While granted Rudeus was a leech in his past life, at least most have given his more uncouth behavior a passed based on genetics considering his parentage. Also, damn Ghislaine. You not only could bounce a quarter off her rear, you mint them. Time I was Reincarnated as a Slime - Been kind of meh, at least it looks like things are going to heat up as Tempest is gaining power and about to be a rival to a powerful human nation. Our group is a little behind, but I did see an image float on my feed that the human nation is not going to take a monster nation being better then them kindly. Also been going through What if a kid from the Last Dungeon moves to the Starter Town with a friend. Been a fun watch, if predictable. Favorite moment was when one of the early baddies declared himself a demon lord just before his ready to beat the second most veteran of the heroes and said hero goes on a tirade about why he didn't say that early while they bolt to get Llyod.
  21. Agreed, but that is why missing his inner-dialog makes the anime a poor adaption. The LN is up front in the first volume that he screwed his entrance exam for his sister. He needed to pass enough to get into the same school, but fail enough to not out-shine her as he wants her to have a good high school experience. Plus there is his job as her Guardian, which yes I know there are times when that seems like his not doing it well in both version. Oh no, some know almost off the bat. It's why Mari fights to have him on the Public Moral Committee and Mayumi helps in getting him to positions that generally Blooms are assigned to. Hell Mayumi uses him as a political tool a few times to show that the Bloom/Weed system is borked. Just that no-one calls him out because it takes that long for them to look past their biases. Even Hanzo (the guy he defeats in Ep2) doesn't fully respect Tatsuya until after the Nine Schools Competition. But that is kind of the point of the series, that the class system is bad and biases can blind. To the world at large Tatsuya Shiba is a nobody, a low ranked bodyguard of a magic family's prize daughter. Hell even his dad holds him in contempt and he knows what the boy can do. The smart ones know Tatsuya is OP, just keeping that on the DL to tap into that power for their own means. In the end Tatsuya is a tool to those around him minus a few people, mostly supporting course 2 students and his sister. It's not really shown in the anime, though the LN lays it pretty bare and that is a shame. Heck the anime is even skipping a good backstory arc that would cover a lot of history for the siblings if done. In short, if you want to good version of [i]Irregular at Magic High School[/i] then read the LN, only thing you get out of the anime is visualization of the series world. The anime did it's job in it got me to buy and read the LN. Thinking on it I believe a good analogy to this would be if a newly hired janitor looked at a project you've been working on for months with no real progress, solves and improves it in a matter of minutes. Then goes back to sweeping floors. Said janitor has zero degrees in the project fields. How would you feel? How do you think your colleagues would feel?
  22. Well considering he cheated to lower his test scores... Yeah I can see that. He does give an explanation in the LN but in the anime it's a throw away line during one of the basic tests. Mizuki notices that Tatsuya is trying too hard at the test (basically to hide his good) and he flinches at her notice. It's the same test they use to explain how some of the magic system works. Same goes with his engineering except that is when Azusa is looking at his custom CAD and slowly starts putting it together. It just doesn't click because it would be absurd that the great Silver would be a weed. It's not until the end of season one that some of the students call him out for hiding his abilities.
