    My Hero Academia

    Let me talk to you guys about this real quick My Hero Academia is the new rising Shounen on the block, potentially rivialing its contemporaries like Naruto and Bleach in poularity. It gained a lot of traction, probably because its pretty dang good. The story is about a boy named Deku who, in a world of people with superpowers, has none of his own. But as fate would have it he runs into his idol, the world's number 1 hero All Might. From there the story goes into a underdog tale of Deku working hard and improving to hopefully someday become the world's greatest hero himself. Stqarting by attentind a prestegious hero academy with other fellow heroes who share the same goals. While not the most freshest or most subversive anime/manga around, it does play around with the formula enough to keep things from being to formulaic or predictable. Character archetypes you've come to expect are played with and twisted so they're given a relatively fresh perspective. Our main character is a emotoinal, talentless boy who wears his heart on his sleeve, as opposed to a confident, niave hot head that comes to permeate the genre. Character designs are fun, varied and well thought out, the "power system" with quirks are all unique and are mostly on a even keel, your power is what you make of it, and even with the most seemingly unimpressive power you can becaome a competent fighter and hero, it makes fights more interesting when everyone has something unique to bring to the table and isnt goverened by a single power system. I could go on about the gut punching emotional moments, the mostly solid character development and relationships with each other, and so on but id honestly say check it out for yourself. The anime has 2 seasons and is about to finish it's second one, the manga is ongoing so if you dont wanna wait just read that! If you wanna watch the anime id say go for either sub or dub since they're both really solid. I leave off with this brilliant piece of music from the anime
  2. When you hate your job and the people you live with so you're essentially in a cycle of depression about your life 

    1. FReaK


      been there last year. moved out and changed my job. I also did a therapy against depression. you should really get help, this can ruin everything..

    2. Failinhearts


      Please do get help. I've been in very dark places, myself. And while I don't have a job yet, you need to fight your sadness with a professional.

    3. MightyRay


      I'm with the others, if you can afford it see if you can get some help until an opportunity arises fro you to escape.

    4. E-122-Psi


      I'm not too sure what to say about jobs because nearly all jobs suck, though it may be best to consider living elsewhere if things are getting too vitriolic.

    5. Kiah


      That’s a very unhealthy combination of circumstances to have in life. 

      While it would be ideal to rectify both situations as soon as possible maybe focus on trying to make a change on one of them to alleviate things for you somewhat because trying to fix both problems could be very overwhelming.

      In the meantime please get some help as you don’t have to suffer with depression like that on top of the dangers. Hang in there and I hope things get better for you very soon.

    Help Me Understand The Love For Mighty

    I liked him in the comics, outside of that he's just inoffensive. I don't mind he exists or even comes back in fact I find it pretty neat,, I hope they can explore his character more in whatever new appearances he might make in the future I liked him in the comics, outside of that he's just inoffensive.

  4. Update: I still hate Sonic Forces 

    1. shdowhunt60


      I think the one upshot about Sonic Forces is that it made me forget about Lost World. Which is something I kinda noticed the other day.

      Balding Spider

      No you love it. It's everything you've ever wanted in a game. ACKNOWLEDGE IT'S MAJESTY AND GREATNESS RIGHT NOW!


      Or don't. I don't really care.


    3. Ferno


      here's how Bernie Forces can still win

    Pokemon Anime General Discussion

    I find hte SM copanions just very okay, not nearly as invested in them as I was past companions though, that feeling can be extrapolated to all of SM in general tbh
  6. Itws really amazing to me how these Mega Man cartoons (Captain N, Ruby Spears, now this) just....uterrly despise the original concept of the franchise so much that they always feel the need to make massive fucking changes because THEY always think they can do a better job. No matter what era, im so tired of it, just give us a fucking anime or OVA already where they actually respect the source material because we have shown time and again we dont know what were doing with this character (unless its the comics)
  7. Also not a fan of Mega Man being like a cocky generic kid show hero shouting explectives like "dude" and stuff when Mega Man is supposed to be a more innocent mild mannered humlble hero who just wants to fight for justice and for the common good. Not saying he cant smark every now and then. but this isnt the way to go about it, man the more I think about this show the more it feels like itd be something made 10 years ago instead of 2018. Not a fan
  8. Its not outright terrible but I can gladly say this show offers literally nothing new and I wouldnt even give this a second glance if it wasnt Mega Man related, Man of Action is running on fumes at this point, there's so many tired action cartoon for kids tropesI dont know where to start
  9. PPHEW I dont like Crash 1 lol, that game is more frustrating than fun

    1. MightyRay


      I'm currently stuck on Slippery Climb. That level is just mean.

    2. Space☆Yeow


      Crash 1 is Rough with a capital R, especially with its level design and save points. Not finished with Crash 2 (or the first Spyro, for that matter) but they're both much, much better/more accessible.

      Don't even get me started on Road to Nowhere and The High Road. My God, those are two of the absolutely worst platforming levels I have ever played. Fuck those levels, honestly.

      Just thinking about those levels genuinely makes me angry.

    Sonic Forces Final DLC - What is it?

    I didn't even know they were still working on DLC for this. That kinda makes me sad, I'd rather they just get to the next bad game then wallow further in this one.

    My Hero Academia

    Ill watch it if the movie is good, but my expectatinos for anime only movies are very low.
  12. It really amazes me how The Last Jedi holds a 91% (higher than INFINITY WAR) on RT yet literally ALL the highest most popular videos about it on YT are rtired 'hot takes' on why it fails on every concievable level to be a movie with millions of views and likes. Star Wars fans confuse me

    1. Space☆Yeow


      this is not going to go the way you think!

    2. Jovahexeon Megumin Academy

      Jovahexeon Megumin Academy

      Have you seen the audience rating though? It's quite low compared to its bretheren. Sometines the public are better critics than the actual critics. 

    3. shdowhunt60


      That's what I go with, there's a pretty clear dissonance between critics and what the audience itself actually feels about something.

      And really? The Last Jedi was shit.

    4. Conquering Storm’s Servant

      Conquering Storm’s Servant

      Honestly, Star Wars has quite a large critical dissonance compared to Marvel.

      Infinity War delivers to all but the most critical and hardcore (and even they are careful how they go about it) as opposed to Star Wars where the public gives more insight, for better or worse, compared to the critics who don’t delve as deeply as they do.

      Probably doesn’t help that Disney ditched the Star Wars Expanded Universe and retconned as uncanon in favor of their own completely original take, whereas they didn’t do that with Marvel Comics and wherea lot more faithful or hands off. That’s definitely a major factor.

    5. Jovahexeon Megumin Academy

      Jovahexeon Megumin Academy

      Needless to say,  Disney haven't been handling Star Wars nearly as proper they've treated the MCU.

    6. Conquering Storm’s Servant

      Conquering Storm’s Servant

      I mean, I know many were excited for the possibility that they’d adapt the Thrawn trilogy given how those were (and likely still are) considered the unofficial Episodes VII, VIII, and IX.

      Not getting that went sour with a lot of folks.

    7. Strickerx5


      I think there's also a heavy dissonance in the actual fanbase too. Even outside the hardcore base, you have people (like myself) who watch all of these movies and don't think nearly as long about them as some do. From my experience, these are often the people who love this film as they just see it as a fun, engaging movie.

      It's probably one of those things where your enjoyment factor greatly depends on how invested into the series you are. There are things in the movie that I could absolutely see myself hating if I cared more about these characters but since I don't, those flaws simply aren't that prevalent to me.

    8. Jovahexeon Megumin Academy

      Jovahexeon Megumin Academy

      And then there's the actual execution with these Star Wars films just getting pumped out, and the new trilogy not even having some consistent story guy like Feige or Lucas to keep the ship on track. Case in point, us getting Rian Johnson's drek script that spits in the face of continuity with Episode 7 too many times to count.

    Team Sonic Racing - Reveal Trailer

    Sonic Team not touching this gives me a sigh of relief, I'm sure it'll turn out just fine then.
  14. After playing Mega Man 9 and 10 back to back for the frist time im utterly baffeled why 10 gets teh cold shoulder from so many fans, I think its just as good if not a little better than 9 tbh

    1. Harkofthewaa


      Yeah, I like 10 more than 9. Sure, the weapons aren't as broken, but Bass makes up for that. Also, the Wily stages aren't brutally hard.

    2. Maxtiis


      I prefer 9 over 10, but I still like 10 more than many of the other classic Mega Man games. 10 just felt more difficult to me than 9 in a way that wasn't as fun.

  15. Soniman

    could forces be fixed like mania?

    This, no point in salvaging a turd, I rather Sonic Team move on to the next trainwreck then drag this one out

    Channel Awesome Was Not So Awesome

    This channel is definitely dead now like holy shit, Lupa is probably rolling in laughter over how she got the ball rolling on CA's demise. They were already trickling users before but now it's a full blown torrent and now fucking no one is left. This site is fucking done
  17. chikariko is a great ship, anyonee who even knows what that is breathe if you agree

    1. Celestia


      Damn right.

    Sonic Mania Adventures (The Complete Series)

    Mania continues to be the glimmering hope of this franchise. What can I say, it was brilliant and expressive and I can't wait to see more
  19. I don't find the memes gut bustingly hilarious or anything. Just nice to have at least one aspect of this franchise that isn't depressingly shitty (the games) or draining (the fandom) and gives some levity to all where we can just make mostly innocent jokes about this franchise. Telling then to stop making light because the franchise is bad and doesn't "deserve" to make that kinda humor till its good just doesn't seem to really accomplish much but make a more depressing atmosphere instead
  20. Do the PR team make fun of any of Sonic's bad games outside of decade(s) old stuff like R, Sonic 06 and Shadow and whatever? Things way past the point of relevancy so its no real harm in taking the pisss out of them on occasoin since everyone else does anyway? Like if they were making jokes about how shitty Forces was that'd be one thing sicne the game is new, but they havent really?
  21. How is the PR team in any position to fix anything though? They dont have anything to do with maaking the games shitty
  22. Sonic is gonna be crap regardless might as well have some fun with it.
  23. Ive been drawing digitially for over 4 years now and not once as anything ive drawn got over 1000 notes/likes whatever on twitter or tumblr. Its been incredibly discouriaging that the only thing I can do to really not think about it is just go full pessimist and accept its never going to happen EVER for me, ive been constantly trying and ive come up dry and im sick of it. I draw these big complicated pictures hoping to finally get it for me and nope nothing, I guess I just suck then. My friends who also draw are easily able to do it and it just makes it worse because I feel like even more of a talentless loser, sometimes it makes me wanna give up drawing entierly lol

    1. Nast


      your first problem there is that you're under the assumption that these likes have any sort of importance or reflect your merit as an artist. or are you making art just to be noticed? don't take that as an attack because that's not necessarily an invalid reason but it'll make it that much harder for you to be happy with doing art.

      as far as your skill goes, you're not bad and you've certainly gotten better as you've gone on, but there's still plenty of room to improve. it's natural for it to take a while to happen. you're not a "talentless loser", that's for sure

    2. Soniman


      I dont do it just get noticed but its just kinda discouraging is all. Im not saying I DESERVE it or anything, just be nice to have it happen once (LITERALLY JUST ONCE I WOULDNT CARE AFTER THAT). TBH lately ive just accepted it wont happen in the near future and just concentrate on drawing for myself rather then others and thats been working out nicely but once in awhile ill still angst about it,. But yeah, thaks for the advice!

    3. Space☆Yeow


      I can't say I feel as bitterly about it as you do, but I do feel the same way sometimes. I guess I try not to think about it to much because I don't necessarily draw a lot (though part of that is because I sometimes hit a creative wall on what to draw) and there can be some positives of being an obscure artist (though that's not to say I'm a fan of my art on average getting single-digit likes/reblogs on tumblr).

      I will say though that it's actually part of the reason why recently I've moved away from my series of platformer concept art (which I tried to put a lot of detail into in their original drawings), and focused more on character design in recent years and more simple environments/backgrounds.

    4. Ferno


      Tbh, sometimes I feel like the opposite has happened to me. I get lots of notes on my stuff but I always feel like I started gaining attention before I or my art skills were truely ready for it. I had like a long 10-or-so year plan and things kind of exploded within 5 and now I'm always scrambling and feeling like I'm "doing it live" instead. when I was just starting out I actually liked the quietness and single digit numbers because there was less pressure to not screw up or get my proportions just right etc, so behind the scenes these days I'm always sorta being hard on myself to improve quickly, to feel like I've "earned" the attention my stuff often gets.

  24. Oh they're pulling this "secret super hero who goes to school" horseshit wiith Mega Man I see, ahvent heard THAT one a million times before in countless otther mediocre kids shows, totally not unessecary at all for a character like Mega Man who can be a hero AND a kid at the same time with no trouble at all. Pass

    Dragon Ball (Warning: Untagged Spoilers)

    God damn at least Bergamo went out in a flashy way in the anime lol. That and Krillin/Tien actually ringed SOMEONE out before getting out themselves
