  1. So no season 2, that’s a relief https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2021-12-09/netflix-cancels-live-action-cowboy-bebop-show/.180460

    Hopefully they’ll rethink their other live action adaptions 🙏 

    1. Wodahs


      i didnt even give it a chance

      hadnt taken it up as i heard they dropped the character Edward Wong Hau Pepelu Tivruski IV in this so wasnt cowboy bebop to me

      mind you ive so far not found a good live action adaption from an anime to my liking unfortunately and to me cowboy bebops like a cult one

    2. Ohayotaku


      Ed actually did make an appearance right at the end & it was so bad I honestly wish they’d left her out altogether. Over the course of it’s run, it managed to **** on everything I loved about the original. Thing of it is, if they’re going to insist on making live action versions of anime (which I personally don’t see the point in) Cowboy Bebop should have been one of the easier series to adapt. No way in hell they’re going to pull off One Piece’s devil fruit powers without a massive CG animation budget. And if they leave them out, it won’t be One Piece. Just a terrible idea.

  2. Temps got into the mid 50s today, so did what will probably be the last of the end of season yard work. Perfect timing as it started raining just as I was wrapping up. Now just hope we don’t get a lot of ice & snow this winter.

      ^ This, every morning 🤣 
      Weighted blankets are a blessing  & a curse :P 

  3. Had a dream last night about being in one of those university towns where you have to park your car & then walk everywhere you want to go.  Except I forgot where I parked & was just wandering around with no idea where I was or where I was headed. The symbolism ain’t exactly subtle, is it? 😂 Woke up feeling tireder than when I went to bed. Gonna be a fun day at work today, I can tell.

      I get those a lot, enough to question if my subconscious is trying to tell me something. XD Try to make phone calls and can't find my contacts list or remember the numbers to anyone I know. Thanks, dreams. Breakfast is always something to look forward to. lol

    2. Ohayotaku


      Breakfast for me is usually iced tea.

      Though this morning  it was Mello-Yello (hey, at least I stay away from energy drinks :P )

      Will usually attempt something more proper on weekends (turkey sausage, waffles & either iced tea or juice (orange or cranberry) ).

  4. Made it though the first ep of the live action Cowboy Bebop series. 😑

    1. Ohayotaku


      Not so much bad as meh. Has a totally different feel to it than the anime, but that’s a given. They started incorporating the larger drama into into it from the get go instead of letting you get attached to the characters before hitting you with the feelz which to mind is more impactful. My biggest complaint is the fight choreography feels clunky (guess I was hoping for more Jackie Chan caliber). And you can tell it’s a western project because they’ve increased the amount of cursing 😂  For what it’s worth, I started the 2nd ep & it’s at least somewhat better.

      I personally don’t get the need for doing live action adaptions (not just anime, but like the Disney remakes as well though I did  enjoy the first Maleficent movie. Then again, my own personal fascination/appreciation is with animation as a medium/artform. And now Netflix has live action adaptions of One Piece & Yuyu Hakusho in the works 😱

  5. Just a reminder to those of us who need to deal with DST


  6. Friday the 13th is still better than any given Monday 

    1. efaardvark


      I think any Friday would be better than a Monday.  :D

      Crunchyfu?  Funicrunch?

      Actually not terribly surprised after the “test merger” a while back.  (Was that just last year?)

    2. Ohayotaku


      They were sharing a lot of content a couple years back, but then went back to being competitors with Crunchyroll Originals & Funimation Exclusives. Funi eventually came to terms to buy out CR, but the government stepped over possible monopoly concerns. But apparently it’s been greenlit. So now we wait to see what happens to the 2 platforms &  how it will affect legal licensing of anime titles.
      On a related note, Netflix seems to be putting more emphasis on anime, their latest announcement being they will make the latest JJBA series available worldwide before it even broadcasts on Japanese television

  7. Welcome back 😁

    Noticed Fruits Basket on your favorite list & wondered if you’d watched the remake yet. Hands down the must emotionally powerful series I’ve seen.

    edit: meant to post this as a comment on your intro topic, but looks like I posted as a status instead. Sorry 😓

    1. Persona


      Thank you! 


      Furuba will forever be a favorite of mine and I am delighted the series had a remake!

      The Fruits Basket team outdid themselves. You can tell they studied the original and applied the improvements the show needed. 
      I enjoyed being able to connect with every character and feel for them. I cried like the flower I am and enjoyed the final Fruits Basket journey. I will always hope they make a movie with the characters 5 years or something later. Idk. 

    2. Ohayotaku


      I’m more of a shrub than a flower, but I admit to being moved to tears numerous times over it’s three year run (and I’m not personally a fan of most HS melodramas, but this one really knew how to connect with the characters). 
      They are going to adapt Tohru’s parents backstory but not sure if it will be a full season, a movie or an OVA. So a follow up is still possible 

    3. Persona


      I'm glad to meet a fellow Fruits Basket fan! 

      I did not know about the adaptation chatter! Something I'll look up and I hope that does happen!

  8. Started watching season 4 of Castlevania last night which is supposed to wrap up the current storyline.

    Sypha remains the best thing about this series (the “I used to be a nice person who didn’t cuss before I met you” scene had me 🤣 )image.thumb.jpeg.85c2bd12741bccd62253cee7cb7085ef.jpeg

  9. Happy(?) Shark Week 🦈 


  10. I just noticed that Weathering With You is at a nearby theater on 07/27. I’m debating whether to go since I haven’t seen it yet but the previews/clips look like seeing it on a big screen would add to it.

  11. Nope, I don’t miss Damsel Ameri at all, because her usual romantically awkward self is already perfect 😍 


  12. An MHA  personality quiz to see which hero you would be matched with for an internship. I got Gunhead (as long I get to work with Uraraka, I’m fine with it 🥰

  13. Frau is one kickass bunny girl 😎 



  14. “We decided we’d spend our extended break being degenerates”  Quote is from Welcome to Demon School, Iruma-kun & reminds me of how much I miss getting a summer break now that I am “supposedly” an adult.

    1. Ohayotaku


      That’ll teach me to watch what I say with someone in the medical profession around :P I’ve been fortunate enough to never have a broken bone in my life. Lots of stitches though.

  15. The cicadas are HERE!!!! 😱


  16. image.jpeg.906439fb8949ce7642a199c11dfd1112.jpeg

    the fact that it’s Tuesday instead of Monday matters surprisingly little

  17. With temps in the 40s & cloudy, a bonfire seems more appropriate than a cookout today

  18. Don’t know what Koboyashi’s problem is. I might actually want to wake up in the morning if this was the first thing I saw.


  19. I know there’s a scientific explanation, but it still annoys the hell out of me when the house actually gets HOTTER after the sun sets 🥵 And that’s even with leaving the lights off.

  20. Ok, this was actually pretty cute


    1. LonelyPoet


      Very cute I love it. ~

  21. The back yard is absolutely covered in propeller (maple) seeds. Of course once warmer temperatures become consistent, it’ll be cicadas 😬

  22. People keep talking about how emotional To Your Eternity is, but honestly it’s Fruits Basket & Nomad that are hitting me where I feel it.
