    [–] CONGRATULATIONS r/Manga!!! We have surpassed r/anime in subs count! TheDerped 15 points ago in manga

    You don't understand. Any fanart post on the front page obviously means the sub is going downhill!

    [–] CONGRATULATIONS r/Manga!!! We have surpassed r/anime in subs count! TheDerped 2 points ago in manga

    I'm surprised the shed scene from Kizu hasn't been posted yet as an individual post. IMO it's way better than the toothbrush scene but admittedly doesn't have the same wtf factor.

    Nope, can't read. They're full length chapters tho so it would be a bit of a mission to google translate the whole thing lol

    [–] Casual Discussion Fridays - Week of January 11, 2019 TheDerped 2 points ago in anime

    Got my hands on some doujins that I could never find raws for online. Doubt anyone would translate them though if I ever scanned them as only 1 of the 6 issues of the series is translated. Still, it's nice to have them I guess.

    Oh also it's not hentai lol. Just a cute SoL series for FGO

    [–] The Man Who Brought Anime To America: Sony Pictures Television's Funimation CEO Gen Fukunaga TheDerped 11 points ago in anime

    Then there's Fred Patten who laid the foundation for anime and manga in general to come to America in the 70s

    And yet it doesn't match the money spent by domestic customers. Believe it or not I imagine businesses would want to focus on who's giving them the most money.

    Mandarake is a second hand seller. Usually pretty damn good quality too but they are not a first party seller which is why they can price like that.

    Edit: that said it's not far off from how it really should be priced. The Australian release for Bake is around 60 dollars for a regular edition without special bells and whistles like a box

    I don't even want to pay 40 for a season

    And some people wonder why the Japanese side doesn't care for appealing to western audiences

    Edit: spend that 40 if you wanna matter

    Went to the batting cage from Persona 5 irl but my proficiency wasn't high enough

    Some of the train stations in Tokyo playing a jingle of the Astro Boy theme is really cute

    [–] Casual Discussion Fridays - Week of January 11, 2019 TheDerped 9 points ago in anime

    Bought some all ages doujins but it still comes in a black bag lmao

    [–] Casual Discussion Fridays - Week of January 11, 2019 TheDerped 11 points ago in anime

    Arrived in Japan for a long overdue weeb pilgrimage. Plane arrived in Tokyo at 5am and I slept about 5 minutes cause I couldn't find a good position that didn't hurt my butt.

    I've been guzzling coffee and konbini sandwiches until my hotel check in. Why don't more countries have readily available decent hot coffee in a can smh. And for the equivalent of about a dollar too!

    Loving how no one talks on the train. My broken ass anime English has gotten me along just fine so far. Everything is so tourist friendly but I guess that's a given with the Olympics next year.

    Also Don Quixote sells sex toys next to the dress shirts lmao

    What manga/LNs did you guys read this week?

    Kengan Asura had an amazing finale. Now to eagerly wait the week or so till the sequel starts lol

    [–] The "Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san" TV anime will be receiving a 2nd season TheDerped 5 points ago in anime

    That’s true. If the pacing is similar to the Takagi-san anime though we’d probably need another like 6 months of chapters for a full cour. Then probably another 6 months for an announcement.

    [–] The "Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san" TV anime will be receiving a 2nd season TheDerped 16 points ago in anime

    I’m not sure how the sub would react considering her bullying is more intense than Takagi at the start lol

    [–] What single scene from an anime is an absolute masterpiece? TheDerped 8 points ago in anime

    The anime had a less than stellar ending which turned a good few people off the rest of the series. I still maintain that like 80% of the anime is fantastic

    [–] Official Aniplex EN Trailer for Babylonia Anime TheDerped 16 points ago in grandorder

    Also helps that he’s wearing armor which I imagine is way easier to render than animals or the Lahmu

    [–] Official NA site for the upcoming FGO anime projects TheDerped 7 points ago in grandorder

    Oh good, for some reason I was thinking it was from a 2018 poll. A year of production time isn’t ideal for anime lol.

    [–] Official NA site for the upcoming FGO anime projects TheDerped 2 points ago in grandorder

    I kinda hope the poll wasn’t the sole reason for the projects going ahead. That they were already in production beforehand and the polls were just a way to announce them so that they don’t have a rushed production schedule

    [–] Official NA site for the upcoming FGO anime projects TheDerped 17 points ago in grandorder

    3.16 is the date for MadFest Sydney, a con held by our biggest anime distributor and the main partner for FGO here. Guess I'll be heading there to see what's up !
