  2. Okay, I had a strange dream last night.


    I dreamt there was a Re-Animated collab vid for the first episode of Speed Racer.


    So I got up, and to my disappointment, no such project exists, to my knowledge.

  3. I just forgot how DICKISH Speed actually is in this show.
    (Sorry for talking about Speed Racer a lot recently. One recommended clip led to another, and now I'm watching the entire series again.)

  4. I wish more old anime got the "Voltron: Legendary Defenders" treatment.

    My personal pick would be Speed Racer.

    Y'know, one that has a similar artstyle and designs of the original, but a slower pace instead of constant motor mouthing. 

    And pretty much every other adaptation besides the movie and MAAAAYBE Speed Racer X have been kinda shit.

      It seemed like Astro Boy was going to get one in France but nobody has heard from the project in years so it's probably dead.

      You should check out Dororo 2019. It's the gold standard in anime for modernizing an old work imo

  5. This show's a being of its own

     

  6. This is actually pretty interesting. Not even SEGA was THIS lenient on fan games to actually bring actual fan games to platforms and make merch out of them. Scott's really a true chad, and I'm not even that big of a FNAF fan anymore.

  7. Umm, I'm guessing this was meant for a status update...?
  8. It's the "Black Shield". It was also in SA2 and Archie IIRC.
  9. So now I'm situated in my college dorm. Don't have any roommates due to Covid.My dad and my future stepmom just left.
    Oh fuck.


    I'm all alone.


    Welp.


    School doesn't start for another week.


    Luckily, in dorm rooms, there's no blocked sites.

      Hope you stay safe during all this. I don't think I'd have been able to handle moving out for school with COVID going on.

  10. Took a very big step today.

    Just deactivated my twitter account.

    Place is just too much of a toxic environment, and more importantly, wasted my time. Glad it's gone.

      yeah, starting to see why some people think that, waaaaay too many sonic fans are at completely extreme poles...

      Spoiler

      also has everyone apparently forgot aaron webber exist? because they're still using their usual chants, rants and raves.

      This isn't really about Sonic fans, the whole site's fucked.

  11. I don't really get the hate for Uzaki-chan.

    Like, her design weirds me out and I personally find it unappealing, but that's it.

    And for the people calling others who like her pedophiles are just kinda dumb. She's apparently 19, and besides the baby face (which is a thing in MOST anime), I think you really have to squint to really call her a child.
    Anyways, to me, she's just waifubait, nothing more, nothing less.

    I just think the discourse behind a fictional character is funny. On both sides, I might add.

    1. DanJ86

      DanJ86

      I could be wrong but from what I've seen, the hate only exists on Twitter.

      She's a standard cute anime girl. If they don't like the design, then they probably don't like anime. I've stopped paying attention to outrage anyway, it's much better for my mental health and I'd recommend it to everyone.

      Okay, I actually started watching the show, and I can kinda get another reason why people hate her.

      She's kinda SO FUCKING ANNOYING.

      Like, every time she does one of those smug faces, i get an urge to fucking crack my phone.

  12. Okay, so the "punched in the face" part was a little harsh (I woke up too early) but the rest of my points still stand.

  13. Well, he actually didn't give details about his encounter with SEGA, but given his tone of voice, I'm willing to bet they weren't happy with that little reference.
  14. I also noticed something else: the CLAW that's destroying the posters is almost definitely Omega's, but the spikes on his arm look quite a bit bigger. Could Omega's new body be a jacked-up version of his old one, and now he' s seeking revenge on Eggman Terminator-style? If so, this could be a real interesting issue.
  15. It looks like Storm's huge-ass finger is partially obscuring the K (like obscuring the E at the end of Village). I think that was intentional on Jon's part, so that SEGA has a hard time trying to translate it. Anyways, this tweet confirms it is Knothole Village. Unfortunately, it also confirms that it's just an Easter egg, as I figured. Still a neat one, though.
  16. I wonder if Jon Gray could get in trouble for slipping in that Knothole Village reference. Last time someone slipped a SatAM reference (ABT), he got a stern talking-to by SEGA. Worst case scenario, the reference gets removed, which would be a shame. However, it's probably not as obvious as a slightly obscured Sally photo, so they might let it slide.
  17. I think they know and were setting up for a joke. (Though I didn't know that either, @thumbs13, nice catch!)
  18. On the second cover... D-does Storm's mugshot say what I think it does? I know it's likely nothing more than an Easter egg, but still, that's pretty awesome!
  19. I'd say the first one. It had more introductions (Tangle, Whisper, Starline, and the skunk brothers), a sense of mystery ( such as the whereabouts of Eggman, the leader of the current empire, etc.), better pacing (imo) and Super Neo Metal. Metal Virus had sluggish pacing up until the end , less introductions, dark for the sake of being dark, and an admittedly a less cool final boss. You also knew that everyone's gonna get better at the end, so there's barely any surprise factor.
  20. I dunno if this topic is too sensitive for this forum. Mods, if you're not comfortable with this subject, pls close it.

    Anyways, I was on Twitter, i've been seeing quite a few people say that POC can't be racist because of power and economic imbalances. I grew up with the definition of racism being "discrimination based on skin color" and... that's it.

    It's mostly leftists saying this, and since i'm a leftist myself, I wonder if the definition changed recently.

      Anyone can be racist. Twitter is dumb.

      Though, "discrimination based on skin color" is not the best definition because race ≠ skin color.

      the idea's been around for a while, and while it's a sloppy way of wording it, it's getting at something real; groups with power can impose, and have imposed, their bigotry on a larger, systemic scale. a white guy in the us being racist against black people is operating in a system that often supports or at least is somewhat sympathetic towards his racism; a black guy in the us being racist against white people lives in a system that is already biased against him. the point isn't that some groups literally cannot be bigoted or that it's ok for one side to be racist, but that we can't just look at the individual actions in a vacuum and judge them to be equal; the society we live in give these actions vastly different impacts and consequences, and they really should be addressed as different things because of that.

      at least, that's my understanding of it, i don't claim to be an expert.

      Of course they can be. There are more checkboxes on your income tax form than "white" and "black," and the assumption that everyone who is not white is a big happy family working together (or even the assumption that everyone who is white is, though that's obviously not nearly as big of a deal as it was a hundred years ago) is absurd.

       

      "I got mine" is absolutely still in force throughout; which is why things like first and second generation immigrants being heavily against paths for illegal immigrants to permanently live in the US is still a common thing.

  21. If the world loses Charles Martinet, a part of me will die inside.

      Dude! you scared me with this status update, thinking that just happened.

      I agree, though. I think the biggest charm with him is that he absolutely LOVES playing the characters he plays, as I can tell from his convention meet and greets, Instagram videos, and Interactive Mario and Luigi at the Nintendo World store. It's hard to imagine someone as passionate and loveable as Charles coming along.

      DON'T entertain in the idea of that happening. Just don't. Don't even think about it. 

      Charles has certainly recorded thousands of voices for his characters so he's practically set for life. But I can't bare to even dignify the thought of him one day not being with us. He looks pretty healthy up to this day, so I say he's still got plenty ahead for him.

      I can't believe Charles Martinet's first ever credited role was in a film with Keanu Reeves.

      You guys are setting yourselves up for despair. It's a lot better to understand what mortality is for yourself and others than to just never think about it and actively suppress any attempt to do so.

      @Shaddy Zaphod

      It's still gonna hurt when the time comes, whether or not I'll deny it or accept it.

      Plus I really don't like dwelling on that. It's not good for my anxiety, so I really don't understand how it's any better for me.

      Sorry for derailing this, just wanted to throw my two cents on this.

  22. I believe @Shadowlax was the one to say it here first, and heard it from a discord somewhere.
  23. So apparently (according to another user in this thread) there's this new mandate that Knuckles can't even leave the island anymore. If true, can SEGA just STOP? I mean, I get that fans wanted him to smarten up and actually protect the Master Emerald. But to completely KICK HIM OUT OF STORIES unless whatever problem's happening on Angel Island is going the OPPOSITE extreme. Oh god... I think WE'RE the partial cause for the recent mandates. Shadow's memed vegeta personality, Knuckles protecting the Emerald... These ate things the FANS joked about and/or wanted. I think SEGA is taking in our suggestions and misconstuing them because they're out of touch with the fan base and making them into mandates. Goddamn, SEGA of Japan needs to relinquish control of this comic to someone who actually UNDERSTANDS these characters.
  24. Given that I don't think that it can be anyone else BUT Sonic.
