  1. Kind of disappointed, but at least they’re trying to do a quality job instead of half-assing it. If it can prevent another Wonder Egg Priority fiasco it’s worth it.

      thats just sad , so ive got to wait that long to end this season 😥

      It”s been previously announced AoT will be on both, but as to the rest hopefully CR will put something up later this week. Apparently the Sayuki reboot/sequel will be on HiDive. I never watched the original but from what I gather is a bishonen variation of Journey to the West.

    3. Ohayotaku


      And here’s CR with more still to come apparently


      looks like Funi will share Lord El Melloi, Ranking of Kings & Vanitas with them as well.

    4. Wodahs


      haha just come here to post the same but you beat me

      as for hidive , ive been waiting to see if the pick up speed with quantity of stuff to be worth the price but been hanging back

      been thinking of getting a hidive sub

  2. Thought this was kinda interesting personality quiz


    I wound up scoring Ikebukuro. 

    1. Wodahs


      well me i got Asakusa when i completed the quiz 😁


  3. Just curious, who’s the character you’re using as an avatar/profile picture?

    1. kamomesan


      Aha, that would be Pandemonica from the game Helltaker

    2. Ohayotaku


      glasses girl + demon girl + office girl = 😍

    Definitely plan on checking this out this evening (assuming the power doesn’t get knocked out by the predicted storms)

    1. efaardvark


      @Ohayotaku Definitely.


      As as aside, Crunchy really, really, REALLY needs to work on their site.  According to Crunchy's bizarre presentation this is going to be "season 16".  WTF???

    2. Wodahs


      i started this last night but after a few min went to bed as i was wiped from the day so ill finish it some time today


  5. 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.

  6. 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.

    1. Ohayotaku


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

  7. 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.

    1. Kit


      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) ).

  8. 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 😱

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


  10. 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

  11. 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!

  12. 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

  13. Happy(?) Shark Week 🦈 


  14. 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.

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


  16. 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 🥰

  17. Frau is one kickass bunny girl 😎 



  18. “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.

  19. The cicadas are HERE!!!! 😱


  20. image.jpeg.906439fb8949ce7642a199c11dfd1112.jpeg

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

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