d4dj's rap episode features ZAQ (person who did the flipflappers op) and one of ZAQ's real life-friends dissing on each other about their actual real lives, complete with a dunk about how nobody's singing the flipflappers op at karaoke

That's honestly a universal thing for musicians. And that's how you can tell a great musician from a merely competent one: If they have found their own sound.

Also yeah, that's chump change for a proper instrument of that ilk (one of my engineer friends in Japan has a collection of Biwa and Shamisen, most of which have cost her, at a minimum, somewhere in the ballpark of 1m yen).

The change was fine. Hell, they even changed the way they wrote Manji's name with Kanji from using the swastika to using 「万次」instead.

Don't hate-watch shows. That's legit kinda lovely for you. Unless it sets up a funny bit.

Just re-watch something you like instead or hell, stop and "ask for directions". I mean, we do have a recommendations thread with plenty of regulars who recommend stuff.

I enjoy how the show is starting to mock its "commercial" aspect via Reiko, who will not shut up about how awesome things you can buy are. And Koguma simply ignoring her is hilarious. (And also stopping Reiko from buying what she doesn't need.)

Also, Super Cub is not yuri, but I will make an exception for that scene by the lockers.
That sounds like fun! Maybe I should give it a watch.

i just want to know what the next fad will be
  • Comfortable sneakers.
  • More hip-hop because japanese hip-hop is a delicious rabbit-hole.
  • Reverse cooking shows (nobody knows how to cook for squat and they mostly learn to cook so it becomes edible).
  • More Edutainment-shows like Cells at Work.

Is reverse cooking where you turn finished meals back into their ingredients?
Underwhelming/realistic cooking shows, I guess? I dunno, just something where they cook and go "Ugh, it's okay, I guess" or "Hey, that tasted fine!"

Or hell, something that occasionally deals with someone tasting one of the characters' attempts at cooking and going :haw: "Wow! That was loving terrible!"

The best thing about Gridman was its ED.

I kid, of course. I loved Gridman and IIRC it was my #2 show of 2018. :) On a more serious note: Gridman and Dynazenon are one of the few shows with its own dedicated thread and mayhaps this discussion might be all the richer if done inside of the aforementioned thread.

One of the best group watching experiences I've ever had was the anime Divine Gate.

It's loving garbage.
I had this experience while watching Goblin Slayer a couple of times. Once with some of my bandmates and the second time with my wife, her two younger siblings and some friends.

The show was a boring turd but watching it while getting high/drunk, eating tasty food and with your bros/loved ones made it hilarious, especially with my brother and sister-in-law doing pretty good Yuichiro Umehara impressions.

yeah this is something I hope we can avoid here at least, it really sucks the way some people in fandoms think that "I don't like this / it makes me uncomfy" is a good reason to harass artists into closing their accounts (or worse)

chumbler posted:

The drive to harass is eternal, the reason is whatever is convenient at the time.
To make a long-story short, :same:

To engage in a little wall-of-text-y dumbassitude for which I am unfortunately known for: I quit F/GO, FEH and Genshin during the week starting on May 3rd, 2021 for many a reason (mostly for the first two):
  • They started to feel like another job.
  • Some of the grindier aspects had begun to take its toll.
  • Being a mostly F2Player (I did buy the beginner's package for FEH that included a 5-star Bow-Knight Lyn with it), some of the PVP aspects started to feel like a steep hill to climb.
Mind you, I had played F/GO for over a year and I had returned to FEH and had been playing it for 7 or 8 months by that time, so for those it kinda felt like my interest "fizzled out" after a while. Genshin, though? I had played that for maybe a couple of months (started on late March, so maybe like a little over a month? I dunno I fight for my friends and I'm dumb :guitar:) and, like, I know there are dumbass players of all sorts for all fandoms/communities, but holy bastard son of gently caress the amount of harassment that a not-small-chunk of the Genshin Impact community pile onto some artists was on a whole 'nother level.

With FEH and F/GO, it was kind of a decision I took and meditated upon. Like I went to bed on the Saturday Night of May 1st and even talked to my wife about it a couple of days/maybe a whole week before I uninstalled both after I clocked out of work that Monday. I kinda felt a little sad, because I was planning to commission an artist to draw my staple team on FEH (B!Alm, B!Edelgard, Balldigan and B!Camilla, for those who care) and maybe one for my fave Gilgamesh in F/GO too. For Genshin Impact, tho'? I was on Pixiv and I was seeing some super rad Kaeya art and I was like this close to hoping I could remotely smack some fools for harassing/calling an artist names. It was probably the most "gently caress it!" decision I had made in all of 2021 when I chose to quit Genshin like two days after quitting the 2 aforementioned games. Especially because it wasn't a standalone thing, whether on twitter, reddit, pixiv or any other place of that ilk, the loving zeal of some fans to just behave worse than loving anti-fans kinda made me go "gently caress every second of that, I quit". So I did. And now I no longer play any mobage aside from stuff on my Vita, my 3DS or my Switch.

Anyway, yeah.

Sorry for making so many posts but I'm basically posting as I think it through. I suppose what bugs me about it is having a billionaire tech villain seems like such an easy way out writing wise. I'd also say it's minimizing the culpability of the military here, by presenting Sakuma as an individual providing a product rather than a conspirator. It lacks the texture of reality, even if it makes a valid point, and the first half of the season had that texture if that makes sense.
