  1. Is "fan service" even its own story/concept genre? I always thought that it was just something that usually came with it.
  2. That's what happens in Statist societies.
  3. The link in the OP's sig currently has a 45% trust score on scamdoc.
  4. In a word, no. Probably. Dunno. Without any rules, it would naturally degenerate into an orgie of slander, blackmail, doxxing, swatting, and explicit threats of bodily harm to the participants. Not a pretty sight.
  5. "I don't want a nation of thinkers, I want a nation of workers" - John D. Rockefeller, founder of the General Education Board ( GEB )in 1903 ^^ ( not an endorsement )
  6. Not really a casual topic but something which needs to be heard and understood. I probably would have never posted this here if somebody ( not dropping any names ) didn't decide to try to turn AF into their own personal soapbox. The one boogieman that nobody is talking about also happens to be the most dangerous of all. Want something to be afraid of? Fear this... "Trust me." Would you trust Mr. Burns from "The Simpsons" to solve all of civilization's ills? Let's see how it turned out when the character managed to convince Lisa that he had turned over a new leaf... ^^ Although a complete work of fiction intended to amuse, if you trust people like Gates, Saint Elon, Maurice Strong [ insert any other oligarch or politician ], the end result will be something like this. Whether the issue being pushed is climate change, the Virus™ or anything else, it does not matter to them. Everything is just a cynical power play to strengthen their control over the populace in the eyes of the predatory ruling class. They do not care. The fact that the elites persist in traveling the world in their own private jets while investing so heavily in all of this 'green' stuff should tell you something about their true nature. What is good for the goose should be good for the gander, should it not? Naive ignoramus interjects: "But Mr. K! They have to use some form of transportation to make it to their international summits!" If the world's captains of industry were really that concerned about carbon emissions destroying the atmosphere, why don't they hold electronic teleconferences instead! They don't need to be physically traveling halfway around the world just to talk about that! They already have the technology to do it this way but they don't...or maybe I should say they won't. Where is it all leading to? See the following... Although not entirely complete, the process has been well underway for a long time. I fear for the future.
  7. The character portrayed by Matt Frewer on British television whose consciousness was transferred into an AI program following his fatal accident is possibly the most anime non-anime character ever. 1 - iKKM308.mp4
  8. The atmospheric soundscapes accompanied by the paleo art of Gregory S. Paul is a large part of what made dinosaur documentaries from the 90s so special. The combination of the music and images allowed my childhood imagination to run wild visualizing the reconstructed scenes of the dangerous prehistoric environment. I'm glad that they started producing these modern CG nature films with dinosaurs but it feels like there is something missing in them somehow.
  9. One of the people in the comments remarked that a design with segments in the shape of chevrons would be more stable when in their retracted state. Interestingly, this is exactly the type of configuration that Jeanne's whip sword had in "World Heroes" - a forgotten 2D fighter franchise from the 90s. Before there was Ivy in "Soul Calibur", there was Jeanne... ( aka "Janne" ) ( all artwork and animations courtesy of fightersgeneration.com )
  10. The Snake's second entrance theme was hypnotic.
  11. ^^ I never thought that I would hear Jim Cornette talking about the classic anime "Lupin III".
  12. "To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize." - Voltaire
  13. Although I have been watching anime now for some time, it was only recently as a writer that I decided to experiment with the concept of attempting to create graphical novels or manga. The single biggest fear lurking in the back of my mind is, what if someone copyright trolls me and attempts to deprive me of my IP ( intellectual property ) and perogative of using the characters that I created myself - my brainchild? Recently, I have watched videos about the way that the process works in the States. Is anything ever simple in the whole legal aspect?? Since I am actually trying to appeal to audiences not only in the West but also in Japan, would it perhaps be a better idea to try using the Patent/Trademark Offices of Japan over those of said Western Countries since the system is geared 99% toward destroying up and coming entrepreneurs? I cannot imagine that they could be any more untrustworthy on the other side of that pond. Are there any known examples of people actually doing this? Foreigners ( or "gaijin" ) in the West actually coming to the Japanese to get their ideas copyrighted/trademarked? Below are some videos that made me even more hesitant to try working with the USPTO. I am unfortunately very unworldly about these types of things. Unlike the wealthy 1%, I am an honest person and not a scumbag who does this type of stuff to people. I am actually less worried about whether anyone tries to copycat me in an overtly brazen manner. Opinions and/or insights on this topic are welcome.
  14. I'm actually kinda fond of Metal Man myself. I thought it odd that many of the comments seen online about him insinuate that he was one of the easy ones to beat just because he's destroyed with only two hits from his own weapon. lol I don't know how anybody beats Metal Man without the Quick Boomerang. In my honest opinion, Metal Man was actually one of the toughest ones to beat in MM2 - definitely in the upper echelon of bosses along with Quick Man, Air Man and Crash Man. I guess I can add Bubble Man since he's almost invincible before obtaining the Metal Blade from Metal Man. It is disappointing that Metal Man never made an appearance in "The Power Battle" or "Power Fighters". Regarding Knight Man, it is kinda cool that he shares his name with better known characters ( like Shadow Man ) although I was personally more impressed with his stage theme than the character himself. I was underwhelmed by his battle capabilities. Knight Man looked cool, I'll give him that. Fuse Man was introduced much later and since I have not played these newer titles I cannot comment about him.
  15. I thought nobody would ever ask. Among the scantily clad fighting game girls drawn in the manga style, nobody tops Elena in Street Fighter. When she was first introduced in SF3, I immediately had it bad for her. Her body had just the right balance of not too much and not too little - just right. She was gorgeous and she was chiseled like a Greek Goddess in a way that didn't make her look too mannish. One of the great things about animation, is that animated girls can surpass the limitations of what is physically possible for the human body. If Capcom had only given us an SF3 anime we may have gotten to see this in full motion other than just in a game... ^^ ( art by Genzoman courtesy of fightersgeneration.com ) animated gifs... Official art from Capcom... More art... ^^ She's the total package. That's a face made for hentai there. Yet for some reason Capcom can give us a SF4 anime but not an SF3 anime. Such a wasted opportunity. ( I might as well go ahead and establish Elena as my waifu at this point )
