I agree, but watching that trailer the voicework made Nagatoro seem WAY more sadistic than I was getting out of the manga. I was definitely interpreting it closer to Takagi-san than like, Prison School. Hopefully things cool off a bit as the story progresses.

Nagatoro still good though.

You know it was originally a porno where she literally kicks and punches the guy right.

She absolutely starts off pretty mean in the manga (and she's nicer in that than she was in the webcomic). She does mellow out later on and become more tsundere than sadistic.

Checked out super cub after the surprising amount of chatter in the thread about it and it's extremely my jam.

Only thing I'm not keen on is how they draw her cheeks. It looks like she's constantly horrified.

I do like that in Slime the lead voiced by Aoi Yuuki is having the isekai life that the lead in Spider (also voiced by Aoi Yuuki) really wants

People say "So I'm a Spider, So what?" is a ripoff of "That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime".

Aoi Yuuki plays Kumoko in "So I'm a Spider, So what?". and the Slime killing Witch in "I've Been Killing Slimes for 300 Years and Maxed Out My Level"

Coincidence? i think not!

I caught myself looking at Super Cubs and Ruckus/Zoomers on eBay but I realised that a scooter wouldn't make me happy.

Modern Super Cubs are really proper motorcycles and not scooters. I think in the US they only come in 125cc's which require a motorcycle license to get. Most places only refrain from requiring that for vehicles 50cc's and below.

That said, scooters/lightweight motorcycles like Super Cubs or Vespas are totally super useful if you live an an actual city and not in suburb hell where you'll need to get on the freeway to get anywhere.

Also way more affordable than a car, at 3-5k new. Excellent gas milage, with over 100mpg (I think the Super Cub 125 can go over 160 miles on its 1 gallon tank)

They sell smaller displacement super cubs in japan so she probably doesn't have the 125cc engine.

The version she had also had a kickstart, which the 2019 and later models don't have (they're all electronic start and keyless) so she clearly has an earlier model. I think Honda has continued to sell less powerful models in the Asian market throughout the Cub's run since the market over there supports them better.

And now for something completely different.
Really liking Nagataro. They've toned down her early sadism and leveled out her character to more like she was after the manga had gone on for a year, which I like.

So is Nagatoro pretty much just fetish material, or does it actually get better? As far as I can tell, she's a super-oval office almost on league with Myne (obviously, nobody can get worse than Myne).

Raenir Salazar posted:

Yeah! It was pretty clear to me why events were unfolding differently was because of Vivy altering the timeline (saving brown haired dude) and that these stones in the pond will definitely result in something, resulting in Matsumoto's information being increasingly out of date as time goes on, resulting in Vivy needing to make more and more judgment calls to try to keep the mission on track. I don't think Matsumoto is wrong about the initial timeline being what caused things, but Matsumoto probably also doesn't really understand human motivations or why things unfold the way they do, and thus why he doesn't/won't know what to do when things go completely off the rails; he's just running a script while its Vivy who needs to understand the heart.

Almost like her personal growth toward her ultimate goal is mirroring the overall worldwide plot!

dogsicle posted:

the thread melting down about it is probably the one that just railed on sus and scrub (in the context of losing at a game), which have both had longterm use and should be fine

when your counterpoint is stuff like the official manga tl's "acting really suspiciously" the argument does not feel strong

I have no problem with a junior high/highschool girl using "sus" in an anime in this setting. I thing it's cool and good that translators and writers should continue to update their language as it evolves over time.

That said, I don't think I'd ever seen it used until Among Us became popular, so I wouldn't really call it in "long term use".

Not really. You just give the text a contrasting border and then no matter what the surrounding color, it'll either contrast with the text border or the text itself.

The Super Cub is also the most produced motor vehicle in all of history, not just the most produced motorcycle. It's very popular in Japan in particular for what should be obvious reasons, being that Honda makes it.

Watched Nagatoro while bored at work. It's a fun little show; I like that it understands the distinction between her being sadistic and being malevolent. That's a level of character nuance I don't see very often, especially in something that's otherwise so frivolous.

It took the manga a while to get to that point. The early chapters really felt a lot more malevolent than anything else, but the direction and acting for Nagatoro have gone a long way toward making it clear she earnestly cares for senpai, and that she’s not just worried about breaking a plaything when she starts to maybe go too far.

Slime literally commits warcrimes in the last couple of episodes of the most recent season. He kills surrendering soldiers, and you know for sure they surrendered in their hearts because the skill he used only works on those who legitimately surrender.

The series does not take a critical look at this and just seems to go, drat what a cool guy this slime is.

Nemo2342 posted:

The justification (which I don't think comes across very well in the anime) is that the enemy army is protected by an anti-magic barrier, precisely because in a world with super powered magic users/monsters/demon lords you don't want your troops wiped out with a well-placed fireball. So instead Slime uses his knowledge of physics and his super-analyzing skill to create a bunch of lenses out of water droplets that focuses sunlight into deadly laser beams, because that doesn't count as magic.

And also because the other played enough RPGs and thought "laser beams raining from the heavens" looked cool.

Wait, that's what was happening? I thought he was just using those little balls to shoot magic bolts at everyone.

Also him just summoning the trio of demons out of nowhere to clean things up with absolutely zero setup for him having that ability was just wild. It's like the author (director?) has no idea about how to setup abilities of characters.

Yes. The first 2 volumes are mostly the same (other than the dragon girl not existing at all in the WN), but they diverge completely soon after. And even some LN parts where the same events happen (like the fight against Araba) are 100% new text

Although I've not read the WN, I've been told by folks who have it will also likely have a different ending than the LN too.

That first one could just be a difference in translation choices though.

Yeah I'm pretty sure she was still using the same word she always uses in Japanese "kimoi" which is usually translated to "gross" but the translator just mixed it up so she wasn't saying the EXACT same thing over and over again.

Calling Senpai "kimoi" is kind of her thing.
