    • I have no real opinion on Apu. I'm just amazed that there is a new episode of Brain Dump.

      Also I consider Paul McCartney a stereotype of Authoritarian Vegans based on a long winded commercial of Paul McCartney demanding other humans become Vegan. I didn't hate Vegans until I watched that.

       

    • XD I grew out of my binge habit 6 years ago (with anime anyways, I still binge the hell out of TV shows). Not to say that there hasn't been a few shows that have brought it back out (Violet Evergarden and My Hero are two recent ones (god I don't know how many times My Hero made me got to bed later than planned, just had to get one more episode in and you know how that works)). Nothing will ever beat the old binge days in college when I'd spend my entire Spring Break watching anime (my record is 16 full series in a week (24 episode series) and a couple of movies. Then that was that time I binged Zeta Gundam in less than 2 days (26 episodes one day and the last 24 the next)) or that time in my life when I was literally a shut-in ala NHK (I watched so many shows in that 6 months).

      Meh, I never had the trouble with access to anime since I'm one of the old school fansub downloaders (I rarely, if ever, watched anime on TV after my college Anime club introduced me to fansubs) or as we're commonly known "Dreaded Internet Pirates" and when I did it wasn't like I was actively seeking out shows to watch as I was content with what was on Toonami and the Fox morning lineup back then (back when they aired Escaflowne, Digimon, and what have you). I didn't get access to Sci-fi until my senior year of high school so I didn't even get the option of staying up until 3 am to watch anime because when I finally got Sci-fi they quit airing anime.

      The only thing that really sucks now is if you don't have a sub to all these services you miss out on a lot of anime since only certain ones have certain shows (case and point Violet Evergarden, had I not kept my Netflix sub (which rarely, if ever, gets used anymore) I'd of never been able to watch it legally (fuck I don't even think you can find fansubs for it then again I never tried)). Sadly my back account can't afford it even if it is cheaper then buying anime (I mean two MMO subs, a crate sub, CR sub, Netflix sub, Spotify sub, 3 twitch subs, 2 patreon creators, and the yearly PSN sub is hard on the account) though I guess half of the services offer little to nothing that I'm interested in (CR has pretty much gets all the simulcasts with few exceptions and has a pretty good back catalog of shows for me to watch. Netflix is good for that occasional anime that's worth watching but that's rare for me these days (VE and now Unicorn (which after seeing it is also subbed I'll be watching it on Netflix instead of the fansubs I have)).

    • Funi doesn't really get anything new in anymore outside of Simuldb... which for me is ok since I've pretty much watched everything that interests me and some that don't. XD Now it keeps me from binging if there is only 5-10 new episodes of something a week to watch. Plus when I'm only dedicating 24-28 min of my time on an ep, when I might be bored, I find some new surprises on things I normally wouldn't have committed to a binge. I have a binge problem XD. If a series of any type interests me I can dedicate all of my time to it until I finish it... hell I watched Game of Thrones in its entirety in less than a week. It's a bad habit. I remember when I first got funimation, I spent months doing nothing but watching anime when I wasn't at work... all my free time was consumed by it.

      They've let a few good series licensing lapse recently like Darker than Black and Birdy the Mighty. With how accessible anime is now, I figure they'll make more Blu-Ray sales off new hotness, and tried and true classics, while cult and lesser known series that didn't sell as much will all eventually be carried by someone else as they let their rights to them expire. You're right about the too many subscription services, but damn at least we have so much access now that we don't want it. XD Gone are they days of searching for Vampire Hunter D and Project A KO on Sci-Fi at 3am in the morning because that's all we had.

    • It sounds like anything co-licensed by both Funi and CR will remain on both platforms as will big name shows like AoT and MHA. Outside of that it seems like pretty much anything they were sharing will be lost (mostly shows where Funi has the license and the same with CR). Honestly it sucks but then again I'm not overly affected by it considering I've seen just about every title Funi has that interests me (though I will be sad if CR loses The Saga of Tanya the Evil, the movie comes out next year and I was really hoping CR would get the stream rights for it but since Funi owns the license for the series I'm pretty sure they'll get the movie as well (though I will probably just end up buying it). Well that and I want be able to re-watch it again until I buy the series (same could be said for Koyabashi's Dragon Maid, such a cute and fun series)). It does suck for those who were hoping the stream options would stay somewhat consolidated and easier on their wallet (to many fucking streaming services now, especially for anime).

    • This is actually pretty wild... we could basically cripple the entire worlds military without much hassle. It didn't even take into account how we could say "fuck it" even more on EPA regulations, get our own oil and glass the middle east. I mean I knew that we were militarily superior to every nation... but not all at once.

      I've been too busy with moving and stuff. I didn't realize facebook login crippled the front page of AC unless you were logged in. I don't know when that started happening, but I've disabled facebook and twitter login for now until I have the time to resolve the issue.

      I never want to move again. Almost every day for the last week has been rain and it's raining even now. It's hard to believe how much stuff two ppl can accumulate over 18 year's until you have to move it all under a time restriction.

      Thanks Spectrum/Time Warner for shutting off my services in the middle of the work day. fml. I scheduled the new account activation at my new house for this weekend and for the old account at the house I'm renting to terminate as of monday.. so what does Spectrum do? Shut my account down 1 day before the new account is activated and a full 4 days before it was scheduled to close. wtf. It took me 40 mins on the phone for them to reactivate my internet so I could finish working. wtf.

      With the summer simuldub season coming to a close, it played out like I predicted more or less. I'll wait a bit longer before I post my review. Pretty lackluster overall. But for me, the Fall Lineup is pretty stacked. Fairy Tail, SAO Season 3, and Black Clover continues which has become a lot more promising after this last arc I just watched... by far its strongest and most compelling. I watched the first episode of Double Decker! Doug & Kirill which was entertaining, and SSSS.GRIDMAN seems to be a Pacific Rim clone. Overall a return to more action adventure series, and lighter on the fan service heavy series.
