General Discussion » Series that are still going be popular after 10 years

@SMXLR8: You know it originally come out about 20 years ago, right? What will be the thing that happens in the next few years that is different than the past 20 and will cause it to fall off? Something that's been going strong for 20 years has kinda already proven that it's not the type of thing that falls off in a few years.

Off-Topic » What if Galactus made you his herald?

@EVA_01: Look man, that's what I'd do if I had the damn powers, lol. I'm not gonna argue about whether or not you like my made up actions in a thread about getting made up powers. If it hurts your heart, so be it. I'm struggling to understand why you're taking it so serious and personal to begin with, but whatever.

Off-Topic » What if Galactus made you his herald?

@EVA_01: I want to go out and spend crazy money with my friends. I don't want to create my own entertainment. I don't want to have control over everything. Then it's no fun. It's like when you're dreaming and you start to realize that you're dreaming and you can make whatever you want happen. I always get out of bed at that points. If there's not some element of randomness, it's no good. Yes I could control everything and force everything to be how I want, but then everything ceases to be fun. I'd rather just have a lot of money so that I can spend it and have fun but still let their be some random element that I'm not controlling, like maybe I don't know how the night will go. Maybe it will end up being a night that goes from crappy to awesome, maybe something will surprise me.

That's what'd be fun for me. Have perfect and total control over everything would be a snorefest if I exerted perfect control over everything. I'd have to let some things just play out or else what's the point? My life would actually get way worse and way more boring with the introduction of these powers if I didn't let some randomness creep in.

@sickVisionz: Why do you care about money when you have the power to destroy the solar system + immortality?

But why would I want to destroy a solar system? And I damn sure wouldn't want to be broke for all eternity. My life is on Earth. On Earth, money is super important.

If the deal is that I accept it and he reveals that there's alien threats out there and I have to put my life on the line to fight enemies that are probably never going to even reach Earth... screw that. I'm turning down the deal. I'm doing decent enough for myself. I've no desire to get great power but then have to be a front line soldier for an intergalactic war.

Off-Topic » What if Galactus made you his herald?

Heralds of Galactus have to do his bidding, don't they? That would suck. If it was just like super powers, I'd use them to get rich.

Neon Alley » Why I believe Neon Alley is permanently blacked out in Canada

Do you really think it's Canada's media industry that is holding things up? Neon Alley is spun as a "channel" and "network" but it's actually just a website that streams video. They aren't in the same arena as a TV network, or rather a TV network can't really stop them from doing what they do. Similar to how in the US, I'm sure cable companies would like to see Netflix vanish but they don't really have the grounds to anything to stop the platform.

I don't think Canada focusing on broadcasting and video-on-demand is what stops Neon Alley from coming. Again, despite how it seems on the surface where all of them are delivering video in one way, Neon Alley is in a different arena altogether. It's not battling to get carried on cable networks where Canadian broadcasters and network could try to push legislation to stop it. I think the issue is the other one you mentioned: Viz may only have US rights. Some Canadian company may have the Canadian rights. Maybe nobody has the rights and it's simply a case of Viz not thinking there is enough of a market to warrant the cost of them pursuing it.

Crunchyroll » Heads Up: Crunchyroll down due to DDoS Attack

@takashichea said:

@Bigheart711: Hey, do you think the same attack happened on Anime Vice...

The same type? Maybe. Relatively no name Anime Vice being a part of a massive attack aimed at services with 10s of millions of users like PSN and XBL? That seems highly unlikely.

Naruto » If you could use Edo Tensei, who would you bring back?

I'd honestly rather hit the gym for a few months, commit suicide, and then have it used on me. As long as you get free will (or at least free will long enough to weave the signs to break out of control) it's an ideal state to be in imo.

Editing & Tools » Shows With 2.39:1 aspect ratio (Anamorphic Widescreen)

It's few and far between for shows where the entirety is shot like that. I wouldn't be surprised if isn't simply a case of someone's monitor being set to a resolution with a ratio with more vertical space than 16.9 and bars get added in whatever media player they are using rather than the player stretching the image out of it's aspect ratio.

Anyways, this series is actually like that for the entire time. Just tell the user to crop their images. If they don't know how, there is a free program called PhotoScape that will let them batch crop everything all at once.

General Discussion » Do you get enough free time for Anime & Manga?

Probably about 1-3 hours each week. Sometimes it's more, sometimes it's less. There's usually like three shows that I watch week-to-week (right now it's Naruto, SOA2, and Akame ga Kill) and then I might watch some episodes of some older show I've been meaning to catch up on

Just Anime » Worst animated Anime ever?

Early One Piece (and by early I'm talking like the first 200-300 episodes) is god awful for animation.

There's some low budget anime that was never going to be really popular and had budgetary constraints on why it couldn't be well animated and companies just had to do the best they could with what they had. One Piece was a cash cow and it's issues were the production committee simply wanting to cut every corner and squeeze every penny out of the series they could get, quality be dammed. Some stuff may technically worse (although OP is legit really terrible animation and not simply less than it should have been) but OP should take the crown imo because both the manga and anime had become insanely popular and Toei was still refusing to put any quality and funds into the production whatsoever until like 5 years into the series. It got even worse when they added a ton of previous episode recap on top of having like a 5 minute opening theme to so that they'd have less run-time to animate.

#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Hunter X Hunter Discussion

@Marshal Victory: I don't agree with that at all I don't think most people so either. I never said that everything not written by the original author is better than anything written by the original author. I said that the original author is rarely seen as the best writer on a series. You mention DC and DC totally proves that. How many people out there honestly feel that the stories told in Detective Comics are better than The Killing Joke, The Dark Knight Returns, or Year One? Like I was saying, the original creator is rarely seen as the best or only good writer to ever touch a series?

I wouldn't mind seeing HxH go a Fullmetal Alchemist approach and letting some new writers tell their own stories in the universe and have control over it until Togashi decides to get his act together, which he hasn't for years with constant hiatuses and poor quality art thrown about.

#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Hunter X Hunter Discussion

I wish the series could continue, even if it was filler. In long running comics, rarely is the inventor considered the best writer to have ever worked on the series. I think anime and manga could work the same if they were given free reign to do whatever they wanted like in comics.

Off-Topic » Do You Play Dating SIM Games?

I've only played School days. It was cool. I've never played a game with so many radically different endings that are fleshed out with the same production values as the rest of the game. I would play other dating sims or visual novels but they're also so cheaply put together compared to School Days that it turns me off.

I wish that poll had a non-loser version of Yes. I played School Days because I liked the anime and thought it could be fun... not because I'd rather have sex with cartoon characters than real women or trying to use them as like a training lesson in talking to the opposite sex
