Oh, Winter Sonata takes place in NYC and Korea, if you consider that "anime" (joint Japan/Korean co-production).

General Discussion » y is the farums on this site so unpopular

I'm a GB convert, but even then I don't post on either side of the divide all that often.  But I did feel bad about how AV was pretty much the red-headed step child of the WM group.  I mean, even the shirts they gave members basically made fun of the fact that while AV exists, no one is in charge of running it. 
It's why I volunteered to do the podcast anyway - in no way does it replace Squadcast, but at least AV has a podcast to call its own like the other WM sites.
 
In the grander scheme of things, it seems that AV still gets a decent amount of traffic - probably to the wiki itself - but people probably end up posting on the bigger sites like animesuki and whatnot.

General Discussion » AlphaVictor #6: Give thanks, but we'd prefer a tip.

I remember the horrible start to the show since I was put on the spot... then we get into a K-On discussion that was fairly unnecessary. :lol:
So with that said, I apologize in advance!

General Discussion » AlphaVictor #5: What the fuck do you mean?

I need to get to Mushishi and Rax sometime.  I'm just finding it easier to follow the mostly throwaway comedies though, simply because I don't have self control and will end up marathoning a show if I have access to all the episodes.
 
Also, man, that Sonic bit is a classic.

General Discussion » K-On!! is over

@CrazyCanuck: 
 
Oh yeah, now I remember - I think someone said the idea was that you kept the tie colour for the whole time you are there and that the ties rotate with every new class.  So the "OG" crew would keep their blue ties for all three years and Asuza et al would keep their red ones for all three years.  By the time Asuza reaches third year, the first years will have blue ties.
 
Why do I know this? :p

General Discussion » K-On!! is over

I think they changed tie colours throughout the show, didn't they?

General Discussion » AlphaVictor #3: The One With The Giant Robots

Thanks for listening guys!
  
@Gaff: 
 
Streaming seems like the best option because it's so cheap (in the age of globalization, translators/localizers are almost a dime a dozen).  If you're okay with "alienating" your "dub only" fanbase, it's a perfectly viable alternative to pressing discs that will sit on store shelves and collect dust.  For the people who want to collect and have reference copies, they can do more limited runs for people who need to have this stuff in a hard format.  I know that I'm going to buy that copy of The Girl Who Leapt Through Time on BD whenever Bandai releases it.
 For the K-On discs specifically, I don't think they've announced what will be included in the limited editions... but the fact that they pre-announced them kind of makes you wonder if they're not putting all their eggs in a basket for this release.  It has fiasco written all over it.
 
And you know, I had the same experience with anime in the 90s.  My friends would watch a lot of the English versions of anime just out of morbid curiosity more than anything else.  Recently I've discovered that TVB/Animax continues to do dubs these days (there's a Cantonese K-On dub out there) and I almost wish I could watch those versions out of nostalgia.

General Discussion » AlphaVictor #2: The Lions never win on their own.

Yeah, I don't think we'll ever cover news... although the ANN streaming fiasco is a bit funny. 
 
And I don't think we mind softball topics. :)

General Discussion » AlphaVictor #2: The Lions never win on their own.

@Gaff: Hey, two of us on the show like K-On!, although Canuck was having mic problems so I had to go on and on for a bit. :lol:

And that seems like an easy question to answer. :)

General Discussion » AlphaVictor #2: The Lions never win on their own.

I apologize for my rambling during the game section.  I think I only had IGN's review in my mind at that point!
