  3. Youtube decided to recommend me the first and second openings from Blue Exorcist and I just choose the only option I had, binge reading the entire manga with the anime openings in the background. GLORY TO THE MACHINE GOD.

  4. Hi everyone, The forum will be undergoing a major core update which will result in some downtime whilst the update is applied. The updates will include some UI improvements as well as significantly improved performance with the themes, particularly for mobile users. Also please note, we are suspending the Member Shop and Trophies/Medals features due to lack of developer support. We are looking at bringing these back in a new form sometime in the near future. Thank you for your ongoing support.

  7. Whelp, this week already has been a pretty good tester into weather or not I actually want to go forward with trying to do VA work... I literally adore the field. I cant help myself but wake up excited to write skits and start voicing them. And can I just say, I have had so many issues; I found listening to myself back to be a little cringe, I've struggled to find voices to fit characters, I've been unable to act out certain moods, as well as yell lines that I need to. The editing is weird and I don't quite understand exactly what I'm looking for sometimes, or why something sounds off. I need to work on my pacing, as well as my management of my surroundings. and above all else, I just need to keep practising. Which is why I'm going to keep on at it :3 Although its only been 5 days, I've already learned about the best ways to show off work, and the do's and don'ts. And I've fudged up a bunch, which means I now have a frame of reference on what to do and how to handle myself. And honestly, that's the best part of it all! I'm just really excited for the future, and definitely want to do more. Still, hope everyone doing ok, and if there are any VA's out there, please feel free to drop some advise! I would truly appreciate it, as I love your trade! ~Your benevolent cinnamon roll, XyroDonatus~

  9. Wonderful that you're taking care of your mother. I do the same for mine. She was involved in a bad car accident and almost paralyzed. It can be a challenge at times for sure. Gosh, it's got to be really difficult saying goodbye to a parent. My father is getting sick from years of smoking. I didn't know him too well, so I feel like time is taking something precious away. Sorry about your lab! I love every pet I have and it's the worst saying goodbye to a friend. They really do make you smile in ways only they can.

  14. So I know that we are in a pandemic and all, so meet ups and con's are pretty much off the table for a while yet. But I wonder if there are any of you on here, like myself, who live in really rural areas and have limited access to the anime/manga community outside of online? Growing up I had no idea that anime or manga even existed. Growing up in a pretty conservative house I had only brief glimpses of such things through mediums like Pokémon and my friend's interests, but even these influences were limited by my parents. When I was in probably the 5th or 6th grade was my first real introduction to anime through some fellow classmates, mostly because they wanted me to understand why it was so cool. Soon after I began spotting Japanese styled books and shows everywhere and became pretty obsessed with the language and culture as well. I even started a club with my school mates (though honestly there were only like 4 of us and all we did was meet at my house to watch shows and eat snacks). But soon enough that small group disintegrated, either by moving away or the slow ebb of communication once I went off to high school. In high school I went to a coed academy in the middle of nowhere (very generous private sponsors my whole life), filled with lots of young people my age from my church denomination. Strangely enough there were quite a few like myself who enjoyed the medium! To the boys dorm I became the download queen (Our school rules prohibiting private movies and dvds for our laptops), they would come to me for absolutely any and all anime, because unlike the other girls in my dorm I liked ALL anime and manga, not limiting myself to genera. Several of us made far off distant plans to travel to cons and experience the American world of anime, others (including myself) wanted to travel to Japan someday (though by this time my interests were not solely weeb and I had actual interest in the country itself). But time went by and people moved on. I graduated and went to China for 2 years (again sponsors), and while there never really lost my love for Japan. After two years I returned to my small hometown in the middle of the US. and here I have remained for about 6 years now? But unlike the rest of my story I have been pretty alone in my interests up to this point. There are a few fellow weebs where I live, but I am not particularly close to them. My closest book/entertainment store is severely limited in both the anime and manga sections, with prices being jacked through the roof for conveniences sake. So now at 25, with two years of Uni down and another two to go, my single and alone ass is out here looking for other people like myself just to have a conversation with about our mutual interests. I am also wondering where all the guys from my church who liked anime and manga went... did yall fall off the face of the planet? Yall need to come back because ya girl never left. But seriously though, I'm not alone in this problem right? At least the rural living, with limited access and few if any friends who share this interest?

  15. Naruto is know for it's large cast of lovable characters but as of episode 112 of the original series I can definitively say that Rock Lee is easily my favourite character in the series. Everything from his positive demeanor, to his underdog background is so very beautifully shounen, he's so very cheesy with his background of fighting back against those who didn't believe in him, finding comfort in Might Guy and rising to become a splendid ninja. But what I think makes him special is just how genuinely sympathetic, yet still endearingly passionate in the face of absolute failure and misfortune he can be. An example of what I've expressed comes from his legendary fight against Gaara in the preliminaries before the finals of the Chunin Exams. When he is defeated by Gaara we learn that he will never be able to return to being a shinobi due to the severity of his injuries, this causes Lee to question his future and everything up until this point becuase of his ethos being to never give up and that with hard work even he can become a splendid ninja but in spite of it all he keeps a positive outlook and whole heartedly believes he will one day recover with perseverance. Eventually Naruto finds the legendary healer Sanin Tsunade who is famous for her healing capabilities, however she urges Lee to quit being a shinobi due to his only option being life threatening surgery, at this point, desperate for an answer he asks Might Guy what to do, in a highly emotional climax both Lee and Might Guy decide that in order to coninue his dream he must never give up as that is his nindo, his ninja way. In the end he displays something so beautifully simple, that passion and perseverance will always pay off and that even in the worst of times we can continue to be better for ourselves and for those we love. Rock Lee is my favourite because he's corny and goofy and simple and so emblematic of what I love about shounen anime.

  17. Just a quick rant. Please, please, please practice safety and responsibility. Follow guidelines. Keep yourself, friends, family, safe. You know what is right. I know you're all tired of hearing about it. I am, too. But I'm faced with it every day. I've seen patients suffering and in some cases losing their lives to this. Don't be part of the problem. Choose to be a part of the solution. This is getting bad. Worse than it has been all year. Stay safe, everyone.

  18. Hello everyone. (o・ω・o) My name is Ayu (just a nickname). I came across this forum as I was searching for groups/communities for artworks. I don't call myself a professional artist or suck at it but I guess decent enough to keep learning and practicing new tips and tricks. I love meeting new people especially people that I can relate with, so I hope I can meet lots of people here and just have fun! I may be shy at first, but once I feel comfortable, I will be sure to open up towards lots of new and fun conversations. Don't hesitate to message if you want to talk. ヽ(o^▽^o)ノ Hope to see everyone around!

  24. actually, technically, a good while longer, since i vaguely recall sitting through an episode of ROBOTECH as a very young boy around what must have been sometime in 1986 or so. a nephew gave me his old 1985 REVELL ROBOTECH CHANGERS VEXAR transformable model (U.S. market reboxing of 1983 IMAI MACROSS VF-1S Focker 1/72 VARIABLE TYPE) around 1988/1989 or so, and then i got a taste of Mecha Anime tropes at a more readily-impressionable age around 1991, thanks to the Mecha action-platfomer game "ASSAULT SUIT LEYNOS" (TARGET EARTH in the U.S.) on the SEGA GENESIS games console. my Anime fandom truly began to consciously coalesce around 1995, when my dad bought me an old IMAI MACROSS 1/100 VF-1J Ichijo GERWALK mode model kit, and PLAYMATES toy company reissued the old original MATCHBOX-made ROBOTECH Mecha toys under their "EXO-SQUAD" line. around that time, i discovered SUNCOAST VIDEO at the mall, and their Anime selection. first i concentrated on ROBOTECH, -via the dual-episode FHE VHS cassette volumes- found VIZ MEDIA's ANIMERICA Anime magazine, and began picking up issues often as i could, and then i discovered MANGA VIDEO's MACROSS II and MACROSS PLUS movie compilation releases, Pure, uncut MACROSS, for the first time. from there, i began to branch out from Mecha-themed anime, with series such as Galaxy Fraulein Yuna and Tenchi Muyo! and then the early-21st-century and the DVD Anime boom hit, and i was well and truly off to the Anime Races. i'm about as hardcore today as i've ever been, and, thanks to the internet, i now have the kind of Mecha and Character-themed merchandise that i would have killed for as a young teen, two-plus decades ago...

  29. So I've been doing some remastering using AI algorithms on an old anime, hajime no ippo, a boxing anime and have just finished it. The type of remastering I did was to enhance the resolution, clean up artifacts/noise, and frame interpolation. I've made my own subreddit, in there I've got more info, as well as some FAQs. Check it out! https://www.reddit.com/r/InterpolateAndEnhance/ For now I'll be doing anime, the next series will be the old hunter x hunter. At some point I want to try out live action content, specifically action stuff like martial arts movies, or straight up action, but for now the interpolation algorithms aren't quite good enough, or well actually they kinda are, at least the high end ones, but good luck trying to interpolate anything with those on anything other than a RTX 3090.

  31. Welcome back to confirmation biases. Last time, I explained that to avoid confirmation bias, you'd have to view a perspective on both sides. If you haven't read it yet, I suggest you do. So, what did I mean by viewing a perspective on both sides? Well, simply put, I meant what I said. You find both proving and disproving evidence of a topic. Well, how do you do this? Think of it this way - "Does this evidence give clear evidence that this might be right? If not, is there any counter evidence?" If the answer to this is yes, congratulations - You've found sound evidence that does not confirm that your belief is 100% right. At the most, you've most likely only confirmed a very small portion of your claim. If the answer to this is no, however, you then look for counter evidence. Counter evidence to see if your not-clear evidence is incorrect. Let's use an example, again. You're investigating a murder. You have solid evidence that the murderer is a 15-year old child from... I don't know, Kentucky. However, you know that this one piece of evidence doesn't confirm it, and therefore, look for counter-evidence. Then, you do find counter-evidence. You find counter-evidence that they're not from Kentucky, and that they're actually from New Jersey. So, you put both of these aside and begin battling out which seems more likely. If, however, you can't find a conclusion, then set them aside for later until you find more evidence/counter-evidence. Once you have enough, argue with yourself, then make your case. This has been Week One of Logic Lessons with L, stay tuned for Week Two, which we'll be discussing about planning and unplanned executions of... anything.

  35. Hey there! I'm know as Swan songs, but I go by many names such as: Reaper, Forsaken, & faceless, but I honestly don't care what you call me. I've longed to join this forums for a good while, but like usual I got distracted by manga, video games, anime; as a result I've never gotten times to really set-up an account on the forums. I've spent a good while spectating the forums from the shadows ( whenever I actually have free time) & when I mean the shadows, I mean watching on a computer from a dimly lit room in an air conditioned room. Anyways, It's good to be apart of a nice community albeit I'm the nicest of people I still tend to get very aggressive during certain topics, but that rarely happens. I really need to stop getting off track! I hope I can get along with you guys. Your local crackhead - Swan Songs

  40. When Tohru clutched Rin's hand & said, 'Let's team up!' I felt that. I'm telling you guys, this was the last piece of the puzzle to unite everyone I think. Also when Shigure was speaking of Rin & said, 'Now, will she let herself be cared for?' That hit me like a ton of bricks. This show should be required viewing for people looking to get into the mental health profession in regards to trauma survivors. Seriously.

My dog comes up behind me like she needs out, takes one look outside & pees in the hallway. While I’m certainly not happy, can’t say I blame her really (different story if she does a #2 though)

  45. One of my favorite characters is Tanjiro Kamado from Demon Slayer. He's such a sweet, caring older brother to Nezuko and he's determined to save her from Muzan's curse. I love his kind nature and how even he gets annoyed at Zenitsu's antics (I still love Zenitsu though lol). I love his growth in the series and the friends he makes along the way. He endured so much and when fighting demons, he shows no resentment, but sorrow when they're defeated. Muzan is another story though. XP
