    Yoko/葉子 got a reaction from Potada in Dragon Ball (Warning: Untagged Spoilers)   
    https://www.youcaring.com/christopherayres-1010986
    Chris has posted as an update that even though he's still very ill, our current Frieza put on a smile that the number of shares to support him hit 9'001. While his lung strength is low, he thanks everyone who shared and donated.

    @bmn, really?
    For years, when seeing the message on other sites, I honestly thought it was named for Dr. N. Gin.

    Yoko/葉子 got a reaction from Snowragnarok in Popular and unpopular Sonic opinions you agree and disagree with!   
    This is an unpopular opinion, as I sense most haven't thought of it. Besides, it's kinda fitting for Thanksgiving.
    I wish more people would spend less time whining about the NY cast and imagine how adorable it will be to have their kids have chats about how their mom/dad is on their team of characters.
    "My dad has the strong Knuckles, so he's on my team." "My mommie has been Blaze, who makes fire. She's the best." "No, my daddy has been two Super Saiyans. My team can beat your team."
    Austin Griffith is still a baby, so he can join in, in a few years.

    Houston, we really do have a problem.
    Chris Ayres (the newer voice of Frieza, after the cast change) is very, very ill from C.O.P.D. According to the page, he's been ill since March. Please help, if you can. Share to your friends.
    I'm sure we all are concerned about him. Having had an obscure manga signed by him, not even four months before this started, this is extra scary.

    Yoko/葉子 got a reaction from Gresh11990 in Official Sonic 2006 topic   
    I agree that having a single tear causing doomsday is a bit over-the-top for my taste. Even by fantasy standards, it's hard to take it seriously for a story, even if meant for symbolism.
    Her situation reminds me of one reason I don't like the Haruhi Suzumiya series. One person feels down and innocents suffer for it. Even worse with Haruhi being a cruel brat that has to have her way.
    Anyway, I found a very simple, but likely unintentional explanation as to why Mephiles/Solaris makes awkward decisions. It could be possible that being split from Iblis messed up his reasoning. It's like when you suddenly pull out a power supply in the middle of saving a game and find your file has been corrupted. As such, Mephilaris might not have even realized he caused parts of the time loop and not fully realized half of what he was doing.

    Yoko/葉子 reacted to Salamander in Official Sonic 2006 topic   
    ...Imagine if Mephiles couldn't travel through time, though.  I'm going to be honest, I don't remember the game well enough to say when he actually did travel through time on-screen, but what if it just wasn't a power that he had?  And hey, why is he just moping around in the future and not merging with Iblis when they're practically right next to each other?  It might be possible to argue that Mephiles cannot actually travel through time at all, which is why he has to rely on Silver to alter the past; and that it's necessary for the past to be altered because, perhaps, if Elise dies, some part of Iblis dies with her even while a terrible monster is released, so it's a bad end for Mephiles too if Elise happens to die.
    To be clear, I don't imagine that this is what Sonic Team intended.  But it's interesting to try and bend the story into a shape that makes more sense.

    Yoko/葉子 reacted to Blacklightning in Official Sonic 2006 topic   
    Let's for a second put aside the fact that crying to release an apocalyptic demon is just a stupid fucking concept in general - even if it weren't, Sonic Team's own writing undermines just by virtue of having an already existing bad future in the first place. Think about it. Had the timeline been left as is, Elise would have died aboard Eggman's ship, and that somehow ends up releasing Iblis to wreck the future regardless. If the case, why even have this dumbass crying caveat at all? Just have Mephiles shank Elise for the endgame and be done with it.
    Speaking of Mephiles, it also begs the question of how a character with literally infinite time on his hands and completely unconditional time travel somehow never found the exact moment Elise died or even just any other moment in general Iblis is exposed and alone to absorb it and become Solaris, but then again trying to decipher Mephiles's logic into any semblance of sense is like trying to solve a rubix cube with your elbows while colourblind.

    Afraid I might skip it.
    Not a fan of the whole "over-the-top inter reality and timeline" crossover trend.
    That and custom characters aren't really my cup of soda.
    The advertisements don't have me sold.
    If others like it, that's fine. It's just not an ideal fit for me.

    Yoko/葉子 got a reaction from BlueSky in Popular and unpopular Sonic opinions you agree and disagree with!   
    Oh, no! A Sonic opinion no one even thought of and miscellaneous details!
    Unpopular: I really like how Yuri Shiratori handled Maria's voice. Shame she hasn't been in newer things, that I'm aware of. Great seiyuu.
    Popular: Edwin Neal (is that his name?) was very amusing as OVA Robotnik. He's also a funny guy in general. He even played a certain Berg Katze in the uncut Gatchaman.
    Unpopular: Supposing Biollante's reptile-plant form really was the influence for the general design of Perfect Chaos, I liked how they're distinctively different.
    Unpopular: I've always found the religious/mythological elements since the Dreamcast days to be very neat. In fact, I wasn't aware that Mephiles and Iblis were named after persuasive beings, when I first played. 
    Unpopular: Not a single game in the series in the series has disappointed me, in terms of graphics. Among those I've played, that is. There might be ones I've completely missed. 
    Unpopular: If it weren't for the time-travel paradoxes, I think Mephiles would have been more creepy as a villain.
    Popular: The many versions of Mephiles' theme are great for Halloween.
    Popular: I love how Jay Snyder (AKA Dan Green) made Mephiles sound like a genuine monster while being all refined. He said it himself that Mephiles is a very simple character.
    Popular: Jay is a very funny guy, when he's coaching you. 
    Unpopular: The intentional campiness of how he played Storm made me enjoy the "Riders" games more.

    Yoko/葉子 reacted to Austroid in Popular and unpopular Sonic opinions you agree and disagree with!   
    Popular: That SA2B is still a great game overall, despite the trend to hate it in recent times. I love all 3 gameplay styles, the story, the music, the multiplayer, the unlockable goodies, the Chao garden, and hey even the badly-synched dialogue!
    Unpopular: I'm not sure if this counts or not, but I really don't like the meme-centric route the franchise has gone recently.
    Sure memes can (occasionally) be funny, but when even official stuff is using/acknowledging "Sanic", Snooping as usual (ugh...), the Mania face, Original the character, "& Knuckles", etc. it kinda rubs me the wrong way; like the whole series just a joke now. Add nearly everything the Boom show puts out that pokes at these existing jokes as well as the fanbase, and it just gets a bit irritating after awhile.
    Sonic fans get a bad enough rep as it is, we don't need dozens of "lulz internet jokez!" added on top of that.

    Yoko/葉子 reacted to Badnik Mechanic in Iizuka: There will not be a Sonic Adventure 3 & what future Sonic titles will be like   
    Polygon has interviewed Iizuka and brought up the SA3 question... and before mods decide to lock the topic... he actually gave some VERY different reasons as to why SA3 is not happening this time which also gives a slight insight into what Sonic Team is doing as a unit.
     
    “I hear people saying that they want Adventure 3, but the path that we’re on and ... Adventure 3, what fans want that to be, might not be an advancement of the series, [...] So I don’t want to do an Adventure 3 and step the franchise back just to give the fans what they want.”
    Basically, Sonic Team does not see a return to the adventure series as being an advancement of the series but a step backward, he then goes onto explain future development plans and strategies.
    “From the developer standpoint, every Sonic game that we’re making is taking new steps and advances, furthering the game in a new direction, and that’s dictated where the Sonic series has been going,”
     
    So every new Sonic game from now on is going to have some kind of gimmick or something new, the co-op buddy thing looks like it's the first major step in that direction 
    He then returns back to the SA3 issue and states that if SA3 were to come out, it would be in name only and would not be what people expect it to be.

    Houston, we seriously do have a problem.

    As many of you know, one of the major anime companies in America is based in Houston, Texas.
    Unfortunately, some of their employees were harshly affected by the recent hurricane and need help getting back on track.
    Please give them a hand, if you can.

    Don't get too excited though, right now they are only doing mobile games.
    But hey, there is mobile games that are under Crunchy's popular titles such as My Hero Acadamia and Mr. Osomastu, so you can finally get those games without jailbreaking!

    Yoko/葉子 got a reaction from Zavok the SpinningSilver in Popular and unpopular Sonic opinions you agree and disagree with!   
    Popular: I can see why most would not care for Jaleel White not voicing Sonic and his siblings well in Underground. 
    To make a comparison, since there are lots of Dragon Ball fans here: While I'm happy for Kozo Shioya for being able to voice all incarnations of Boo except Oob in Japanese, the problem is that he does not sound convincing as any of them, just like with Jaleel. And believe me, this is coming from one who knows small amounts of Japanese and can pick up on the acting in some words. No matter what, if you can't get a decent voice actor to believably play multiple parts, don't use them for the extra parts, even if to save money. (Which is why I think having different people play different Boo versions in the American dub worked much better.)
    Which reminds me, I am still impressed with how the New York cast were able to pull of so many different voices and still sound great as them all. I think part of that might be that New York has one advantage that Los Angeles does not: much more work to practice with in theatrical plays, thus forcing them to have variety.
