Watch it on Crunchyroll. They have everything on the free account, think I can get someone a 48 hour premium pass if they give me a nudge.

Do they have the English Dub? As I am finding the dreadful English accents used for the characters fucking hilarious so far.

Yep. But I always stick to subs, so many anime's just flow better with the Japanese voices. Very easy to read the text and get the sound of context, stuff like Konosuba is a must in Japanese because the actors sound like they are having a blast. The US ones in comparison almost sound painful :lol:

I generally agree with that sentiment except when it comes to Dragonball. Goku is absolutely insufferable in Japanese.

Don’t watch the dub, because then you miss out on this.

Dragonball is always the exception :lol: Watching it week by week for a bit was truly terrifying.

I've made a start on ye olde Galaxy Express 999. Bloody hell, not a jolly show, is it?

JoJo is on Netflix! Time to see what all the fuss is all about. 

I've just started it. I've been finding the English dub hysterical for its complete earnestness but I'll switch to Japanese now. It's not what I thought it would be at all.

Just finished Dragon Ball. It’s very dated now of course but I enjoyed it nonetheless and found the sub preferable to the dub.

Now to fit in something from my All The Anime Black Friday haul before getting stuck into DBZ.

Crunchyroll just announced that they will be adding the Konosuba movie to the catalogue on the 25th March! It's been getting rave reviews from all over.

If anyone's watching MHA; Gentle is the most empathisable character I've seen. He perfectly describes that level of mediocrity nearly all of us with ambition will feel as our luck/mistakes cast us to the sidelines.

 

Suprising feels.

Looks like Evangelion 3.0+1.0 has been delayed due to COVID19. Here is a poster that made me a bit sad.

I'm hoping Shinji can finally escape from his ever-repeating nightmare.

“Delayed due to Covid19”

 

It was originally due in 2012 :lol:

Anime is cancelled. An expanding list of current and upcoming shows postponed due to Covid 19. Some, even ones that started airing already, are just writing off the current season and will start again in the next season in July.

Damn it! Don't they realise that our entertaiment needs are more important than the lives of their staff and their families?

Anyone else watched that new Ghost in the Shell series on Netflix? If you can get past the uninspiring CG animation it's mildly diverting, but not a patch on the original GitS. It's nice having the characters back at least.

I finished it this morning. Liked the break in the middle with Batou getting caught up in a bank robbery gone weird. And there’s a thinly veiled twitter mob episode.

The Batou episode was actually the standout I think, along with some impressive action sequences. But the "soul" has been utterly lost. There is nothing particularly deep here or tackling any themes we haven't already seen done better in the original series.

 

Spoiler

The "posthuman" thing is just a copy paste job from the collective consciousness stuff thrown around in the latter parts of GitS. But with less philosophising. At one point 1984 is used as a visual hook but no commentary is actually made on the book itself. In the original series that would have been a 5 minute dialogue sequence with characters discussing its significance.

I really enjoyed High Score Girl, the mom and sister crack me up

 

It definitely has high points. I just feel terminally old and sad after watching it though.

 

I especially liked the use of the Final Fight infinite whenever anyone was beating the protagonist up.

I finished S2 of Hi-Score Girl the other day and loved it. It's as though they peered into my very soul, I feel exposed! I liked how tongue-in-cheek it was.

Thanks for that dude that was a great little watch this morning!

 

I bet there are loads of little gems out there waiting to be found.

Anyone catch the Suzy Lu reaction drama, maybe because I'm bored but its pretty delicious entertainment. She's scum if you want my shitty opinion.
