    sigh Google really dose want to own the world. I mean I like google services a lot, but they really should not be getting into gaming this way.

    Let’s discuss this years most popular anime for AF! What’s YOUR pick for the top favorite of 2019? ——- The anime I’ve most enjoyed as of June, has been The Rising of the Shield hero (big surprise everyone). I love how the story is fulfilling the points that I’d been wanting to see for our hero and starting a new plot as they venture forth into the coming season. I’m very excited to see where things go from here. Never a dull moment in this anime.

    Stalking implies there's something sinister about it, or you're following them around. That's creepy. No. I'm a stationary observer. Ignore her gif, it's all true.

    Actually, naps are amazing. I can't help but feel a crash throughout the day, and a nap can really pick me up for the rest of the day. I just have to be careful to not let them go on for too long. According to ScienceDaily, kids who nap are significantly happier, smarter, and nicer. I think the human body was designed to nap. It just seems weird to just sleep for 8 hours, then expect everyone to be fully awake for the next 16 hours without a break. Some people just need to recharge, even if its just for 20 minutes. In fact, I'll take a nap right now.

    I love strawberry ice cream @Muco never had a strawberry donut - If it’s a fruity donut, I’d do lemon cream flavor... only because I do filled donuts instead of just choosing flavored icing. Strawberry icing sounds lovely tho

    I voted for Dororo. It follows the quest of a young man to regain his physical body which his father traded away to a group of demons in exchange for prosperity for his territory. It paints a much more complex picture of ethics and morality than in many other anime, because the closer he comes to succeeding, the more catastrophe and suffering befalls the citizens & in order to defeat the demons he must resort to an “inhuman” level of violence and rage. The series has it’s shortcomings as the writing can seem a bit awkward at times and humor is in short supply but it still stands out as something special and the title character is actually an orphaned thief who accompanies the MC provides some much need optimism. I’m really enjoying Shield Hero as well, but it can annoy me at times as well. Plus, I’m certain that not all the loose ends will be wrapped up this year, whereas it seems like Dororo will reach it’s finale by the end of the month. Fruits Basket is another contender, but again I’m fairly certain it will need to carryover into 2020 and possibly beyond. On the lighter side I prefer We Never Learn which has a lot of similarities, but feels more like an oldschool harem anime. Plus the characters have developed enough now that it feels like each of them have a distinctive relationship to the male lead, making me more invested in them. It’s also pretty funny with a fair amount of fanservice without being as blatant as some other recent series. And of course Isekai Quartet is another fun series I’m really enjoying.

    Thanks for taking the time to give a detailed response, @Banri. I've done some browsing around the anime community, looking at channels like Gigguk, Mother's Basement, Digibro, Kurosai, etc. Currently my main channel is closest to a channel like Kurosai's, but I'm hoping to eventually head in the direction of Gigguk and Mother's Basement. (Of course, with my own flair to it like you have said.) I didn't know that YouTube favored consistency and engagement like that. I was already planning on doing my best to upload weekly, but hearing it in direct terms like this will hopefully motivate me a bit more. As for engagement, I hadn't even considered it. I'll try my best in that regard. Using other people's requests for my channel is another great idea I hadn't considered. Thanks again, @Banri.

    There are suprisingly many people who think Power Napping is just short sleeping (for some one - three hours!) while they should be between 20 to 30 mins. I guess many people think that they won't even fall asleep during this time or wouldn't get enough sleep - which wouldn't happen if they did it regularly... (power napping is something you learn over time and is shown to be immensely effective, while, as you wrote, any longer than that is actually energy draining) As for napping in general - I don't really do that. I try to get my 8 - 9 hrs of sleep, go to sleep at roughly the same time and wake up at roughly the same time and hardly ever feel tired during the day. Although there are days where I get wayyy less sleep due to assignments or studying but this also means that I can't nap due to them...

    I am intrigued by the idea of converting datacenter processing power into consumer gaming console hardware. Technically it is possible, but there's so many ways for it to go wrong, starting with the price of datacenter cores vs the price of gaming console cores. Gamers are used to paying about $300 for 8 cores (dual 4-core cpus), or about $35 per core in a PS4 or Xbox. Datacenters these days are mostly running Xeons, and those cost over $100 per core, or even more. For Stadia there will also have to be GPUs in the datacenters, so add a bit to that. Business users are willing to pay that because they're making money with the computing power. Will gamers? A Stadia console (the part that you plug in at home, or the app you run on your phone) will probably be pretty cheap. Maybe they'll even include it "free" with a subscription, like the lower-end phones on some cellphone plans. But I strongly suspect they'll more than make up for it with high subscription prices. I can't imagine the overall cost to the consumer being anything but very high. There's also some bad dynamics in terms of pay-to-play. I fully expect there to be "upper tier" subscriptions where people who are willing to pay more for their subscription get more cores assigned to "their" game console, and thus better gaming performance. You thought Candy Crush was bad? Just wait. Not all of it is bad though. If all they're doing is basically streaming results and all the actual interaction between the compute nodes happens in the datacenter then there's all sorts of intriguing options for things like MMORPGs, especially when you throw VR into the mix. Overall I'm looking forward to seeing how Stadia pans out. That said I have no intention of being among the first to sign up.

    @Kinbaryu I think, to run a successful YouTube channel you have to be passionate about the subject, one thing you could do is research other YouTubers in the same field to see what they are talking about, and then but your own spin on it, if that makes sense? I do know, from past research, the YouTube algorithm looks for consistency in uploads and engagement with the community, if it's possible try to upload one video a week, on a specific day of your choosing, that would help your chances of being recommended by YouTube. For the engagement with the community, visiting other YouTube channels comments section and engaging with the community there is counted as an advantage for your algorithm result, because the algorithm see's you as an active member of the community, and once you upload with consistency your videos have a greater chance of being shared in the recommendations on YouTube. To follow on from above, if your engagement with the community on other YouTube channels is of good quality, you are likely to have a greater chance of people there clicking on your YouTube channel name in the comment section. One thing you could do while in the comment section of high profile YouTube channels is to look for recommendations by people in the comment section, as there will be times the community will make recommendations to YouTubers within the comment section, but high profile YouTubers are likely very busy and have a greater chance of missing recommendations in the comment section, so, you could help the community by filling in these requests. I hope the above helps in some way

    Well, I don't watch as much anime as I'd like to these days, but who can forget this scene. I, and probably Master Roshi, think this is one of the funnest beach scenes ever! hope I don't get in trouble for that

    I think its just people wanting to be cheap and not hire real voice actors, and instead they think they can save money by hiring some people to voice act who have never voice acted before. You can tell the voice actors in cowboy bebop and ghost in the shell had some talent

    I wish that naps were more common in the workplace. I know some companies like Google allow naps, but I wonder why it's so common to just expect your workers to be fully energized for 8 hours a day. Allowing your workers to recharge would definitely lead to happier workers and less accidents, I'm sure.

    I understand what you mean. In truth I am not to much of a beach guy myself. It is just boring. If I were to be doing outdoor activities I'd rather be walking or running.

    I used to go to the beach as a young'n, but I haven't been in like twenty years. Just not much of a beach guy, don't really understand the fun in being out in the sun all day. Sounds too much like work, lol. Checking out the pretty ladies is about the only thing cool about it. ~says this boring human

    For Nintendo, apparently they were only ever intended as a stopgap while the company released itself from the Wii U to get ready for the Switch launch, I have both units myself and really like them, I do wish they had released an N64 mini though, as it stands the units are nice collectors items to own. For Sony, I think it was an absolute cash cow attempt that massively backfired by all accounts, they wanted to cash in on the craze that Nintendo was riding all by itself, but from all the reports I've read the team behind the playstation classic made a lot of mistakes, I can only guess Sony must have ordered far too many units resulting in their warehouses still having a backlog of stock as I've seen them marked down in store clearance for as low as £19.99 I'm looking forward to the Sega Mega Drive mini that's due this September, with Sega handling it - I expect it'll be a great seller for the company, it'll be the first gaming console from the company since they exited the hardware market when the Dreamcast was discontinued. I'm also looking forward to see what official hardware Retro-bit release from their partnership with Sega, http://retro-bit.com/sega-collaboration

    Hope you guys don't mind me posting this here, guess I just need to vent a little about what happened tonight if that's okay? So I accidentally missed a payment on my credit card due to stress that my parents have caused, as soon as I got the later to say that it was overdue I went on the app and paid it straightaway. When I got back from my course today my mam said the letter had fell off my desk and she saw what it said which is impossible as I had put it back in the envelope which means she lied to me and actually took it out of the envelope to read it. They are have literally took my credit card off me, if I don't have enough money for food towards the end of the month I am not going to be able to feed me and my daughter. I hate living with parents. They think they have a right to rummage through my room every time I am out. I don't need this stress. Sorry for the rant. It's just not right what they have done. I am a 29 year old single mum who sometimes relies on my credit card to get extra shopping in if need be. Hope it was okay to post about this. Sorry if I annoy any of you.
