Re: UY ALLSTARS: New Urusei Yatsura anime on TV in 2022!

This adaptation is looking promising! The new voice talents fill the roles of Lum and Ataru perfectly in that PV, and it's a nice gesture to see Toshio Furukawa and Fumi Hirano pass the baton on the official website. So far, the art style, character design, etc. all seem quite accurate to Takahashi'...

Re: Netflix cancels LA Cowboy Bebop

I feel exactly the same as DKop. Without getting into spoiler-y details, despite Cowboy Bebop Netflix handling Vicious and Julia rather... poorly , I thought the main crew had excellent chemistry and were a blast to watch together - The show overall wasn't as deep as the original, but you could tell...

Re: Sexism in early anime fandom

On the plus side, I think people are much more knowledgeable about these issues nowadays, and can actively work to make our communities a welcoming place. Be it Anime, Science-Fiction, technology, or really any field that has been traditionally male-dominated. We can all imagine a stereotypical &quo...

Re: How did JoJo's Bizarre Adventure become popular again?

I remember the OVAs and that "Street Fighter"-esque video game being relatively popular in the early 2000's - But as you said, that interest eventually died down. To my understanding, the recent JoJo's boom started from the 2012 anime adaptation, which was made to celebrate the series' 25t...

Re: Macross Conversion DYRL maybe

Converted a few Macross Famicom carts to NES I don't know what FAMICOM is but I know what NES is. This would convert for the Nintendo 64 system I believe. So I know a thing or two about these old gaming consoles... Basically, the NES we got in the west was a rebranding of the Japanese Famicom, with...

Re: Netflix Live-action Cowboy Bebop opening dropped

I've got a similar mindset as DKop here. I think this new live-action version has potential, and it's not like it's replacing the original or anything; We can always go back to it whenever. It seems like the crew behind this is putting some care into the project, and I'm interested to see where it g...

Those mascot characters are as cute as a button. Now you have characters you could make as merchandize if you so wish :P

Re: Berserk Creator Kentarou Miura Passes at 54

It really is a shame. Miura was such a creative juggernaut of the medium, so it's devastating to see him go at the premature age of 54.
