  1. Tikal could've stayed a regular cast member similar to Silver tbh, except she'd just be from the distant past rather than the distant future, plus she's technically(?) a ghost so that would've been a neat character type. ...Then again it's probably for the best that SOMEONE on the hero side in this series left after one game before overstaying their welcome/ plot relevance.

    1. Blacklightning


      SA1 was kinda the perfect closure to Tikal and Chaos putting aside their restlessness and being at peace at long last, but I guess since Chaos has been brought back multiple times for no real good reason I honestly wouldn't object to Tikal getting another shot or two to balance it out.

    2. Blue Blood

      Yeah, no thanks. Tikal was introduced with a purpose and that purpose was successfully fulfilled in SA1. She definitely has no reason to appear in stories anymore. Her story has been told and I can't think of any way to take it further after SA1 without trashing her. 

      Silver, IMO, also should have stayed out of the series for a while or should have been reintroduced properly. I think he actually has something to offer being a psychic fighter from the future, but I've never been keen on the fact that he just keeps magicing back from the future whenever he wants to. A story should have been introduced that stopped him returning to the future or something. 

      And just cause we're on the subject, Shadow deserved so much more than Heroes storyline. His death in SA2 was really well played out at the end of that arc, but there was just so much more potential in the character. I'm glad they brought him back, and it's just a shame that Heroes pissed all over the impact that SA2 had. I don't even hate plot of ShTH that much. At least it tried.

      Okay but I want a Sonic game that starts with Silver appearing and saying "Guys, we did it, the future stopped being fucked up permanently, you've truly created peace for good this time, well done."

      Then Tikal appears and is like "Sonic I don't know how you did it but you managed to fuck up the past on that last adventure, c'mon let's go."


      The game ends with it undoing Silver's future again and he reappears and is just like

      "GUYS." ಠ_ಠ

      Shadow was window dressing in Heroes, didn't really do much of anything and was only there to move units . A bunch of mystery and questions with no answers until his big dumb game. I thought the Shadow Android subplot would've been really cool but even that was relegated to a unimportant non Canon story path

      @Blacklightning Chaos came back for Battle, IIRC only because he shows up in times of crisis. It was forced and didn't really follow SA1. But other than that... Where has he showed up? In Forces he's just an illusion, in Generations it's timey-wimey nonsense, and I can't think of anything else other than cameos like SA2's multiplayer. He's been mentioned (Chronicles, Heroes) but doesn't appear.

      @JezMM the sequel has the gang trying to fix the past AND Silvers future.


      In the end, the present somehow got ruined.

      I liked how the Archie comics post-reboot did it, with her and Chaos inhabiting the Master Emerald and warning Knuckles when shit is about to go down.

  2. *learns that the creator of Owl House is 29*

    *...remembers that im 28 stuck in retail*


    mainly joking but sometimes the quarter-life crisis thoughts be hittin' late at night at bedtime right before another long shift in the morning

    1. Zaysho


      One day, man.

  3. I had no idea that the creator of Fire Force also created Soul Eater. I kinda wondered what they were up to after Soul Eater but now I know.

  4. was there ever a sonic robo blast 1 tho

    1. jingleblurs98


      there was, and i played it.

      it was janky. really janky.

    2. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      It created way back in the early days of Sonic fan games (late 90s, early 00s). It was made with some of the earliest Click Team software, and didn't even support screen scrolling.

      Basically the Team Fortress 2 of Doom engine games, where as TF ascended from a Quake and Half Life engine predecessor. One of the Unlockable Secrets in SRB2 include a 2.5 remake of SRB1's levels, and there are mods that add in the questionable spritework Sonic and Knuckles (there was no Tails) were drawn in the original.

      Like this-


  5. I notice quite a few Spanish speakers seem to like my stuff every now and then on twitter. Really makes me wanna learn the language so I can interact with them.

    1. Milo


      As someone who has taken Spanish classes since middle school (but still not quite good at it) you might be a bit surprised at how many words are actually similar to their English counterparts (i.e. la computadora, los pantalones, la bicicleta). Or might be similar to one English term but actually stands for a related English term (sopa isn't soap, but it is soup; ratón actually means mouse, rather than rat).

  6. Geez, even with full time hours my rent and other expenses still gouge my bank account with a rusty spoon every month leaving me struggle-crawling through the next few weeks until the next paycheck. Until I get my Patreon off the ground I don't think I'll ever be truly free from needing to open commissions occassionally every few weeks/ months. I'll probably lower the number of slots I have open at once though, but still.

  7. So many youtube video thumbnail/ title combos read like Toei Animation episode titles. EXCLAMATION?! (in the thumbnail) followed by the actual video title below the thumbnail.

    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Modern day thumbnails take form of parrots to the video title's bold statement.

  8. as it gets to the end tho

  10. Look.. up, there, now what do you see, shining on you and me?
    Out there, on the waves of the sea?
    Above, all the clouds in the sky
    The moon, brightly glowing on high 
    The moon, makes all the cares float away
    The moon, soothes all the worries of the day
    Come out, even if only for awhile
    And see, the night sky can make smiles
    So come on with me, grab your oars and we'll row
    Far out to the sea, where we'll both surely know
    The serenity, that we've sought high and low
    Right under the moon, tell me that you will go... that you will go..?

      was in a diabetes-inducing mood plus i always forget that lyric writing/ poetry(?) is one of my lost hobbies that i never really indulge in anymore

  11. it be like that sometimes in youtube comment sections for anime dubs (aside from DBZ/ DBS)


    1. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      Ironically, The Japanese version is the dub here.

      DB dubbed anime comments are terrible for a whoooooole different reason ehehe

  12. yet another cyber monday where i'm too broke to shop. wish it were in the middle of the month rather than at the very beginning right after just paying rent/ bills

    1. TCB



  13. i've only worked fulltime for like a month and im tired af, and then I remember that most people do this for like 40+ years

      Slowpoke tails are a curry ingredient, so they could feasibly be that. 

      And gone are the days of GSC being low-key dark with Team Rocket cruelly chopping them off and the poor Slowpoke's being mutilated for life... As with anything modern-Pokémon, it's been sanitised. Their tails fall off naturally and grow back quickly.

    3. Thigolf


      As if Rocket wans't boring enough in GSC already

      I remember checking the items in the supermarket in S/M and going "wat" when finding slowpoke tails in there.

      Bulbapedia seems to have interpreted Slowpoke’s SuMo dex entry to mean only Slowpoke from Alola have this trait.

    9. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      I just read the Dex entries and it doesn't imply that. It just describes the practice of hanging and drying the tails in Alola.

      i wonder if Vegetarians are still Vegetarians if they eat like, a Bellsprout

  15. *wakes up after a long af work day yesterday, sits at desk, blasts pacific rim theme through headphones while picking up stylus pen* ..its good to be home tho

  16. seeing home-made stuff like this makes me wanna dust off Blender and actually attempt something beyond that cube it starts you off with. (but also eventually get a computer that handles 3D stuff better for that matter to begin with)


  17. *when you learn that big anime studios like the one behind Pokemon uses the same art software you draw with to make some of their assets and animations*



  18. Things sure were different at the start of the decade. I remember when Facebook was pretty much what Twitter is now, where all the big companies and important people hung out and revealed their stuff. I think even the Generations teaser premiered there first of all places before getting uploaded to Youtube later.

    1. Ryannumber1Santa


      I can confirm the Gens trailer debuted there, I still remember being hyped as hell as it got closer to showing it off.

      I even remember - it was this trailer:


  19. pretty much going into the warzone tomorrow. I've worked black friday almost every year since i started working retail, but this'll be my first one that'll be a full 8 hour shift

      I'm not working an eight-hour shift (i work part time), but this will be my first time working at retail on a black friday. (i didn't work fridays last year so i lucked out)

    4. jingleblurs98


      hope it goes well.

      Good luck brother. I got lucky this year and got a morning shift so got off work only two hours after the sale started

  20. Apple and Onion (new CN show) looked dumb at first but the writing's pretty good and I got used to the art style pretty quickly.

    1. Panda Claus

      Panda Claus

      I’ve been meaning to give that show a look ever since I found out Richard Ayoade was in it.

      How the hell does it only have 14 episodes despite coming out a year and a half ago?

  22. "we're making a movie about fukin goofy, but lets make the soundtrack really good tho just for kicks, they'll never see it comin. its the 90s, we're disney, we can do whatever we want"

    1. AlphaRuby


      Interesting that one of the composers went on to do The Matrix

    2. Ryannumber1Santa


      A Goofy Movie is an underrated classic among Disney's library and it saddens me it still doesn't get the proper love and respect it deserves.

  23. I didn't know it was TMS Entertainment that's animating Dr. Stone. Looks pretty good, as did their work on the recent Lupin lll stuff and MegaloBox. I guess Sonic X was animated by like, one of their C Teams or something because everything else they've made since other than maybe Bakugan, looks pretty good.

    1. Sean


      Really sucks that Sonic X turned out looking like trash more often than not, I would have been happy with something akin to early Pokémon episodes.

    2. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      Really fun fact about Sonic X

      ufotable made all the CG for the series

      Yes THAT ufotable

  24. I wonder how the anime industry is gonna respond to Klaus tho. 👀They seem to really wanna get into more 3D-esque stuff but they're also really attached to 2D methods still. The Klaus style could be right up their alley if they ever try it.

    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Any western animated film that's not Disney is DOA there as far as I'm concerned. Might get a small following if yer lucky, but rarely gets around with the general public.

  25. Watched all 3 seasons of Better Call Saul on netflix and I felt like I was all caught up but then I found out there's a season 4 that isn't on Netflix yet


    1. Ryannumber1Santa


      Season 4's on Netflix UK if you've got a VPN or whatever to use the UK version.

      S'all good, man.
