  1. Best Anime Episodes

    Recently the Ringer put out a list of the best 100 episodes of television of the century, so it got me thinking about the best episodes of anime of this century. These are ones that immediately come to mind for me. Dennou Coil 11 - Daikoku City Sinks Dennou Coil 13 - The Last Plesiosaur Haruhi 14 - The Day of Sagittarius Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita 9 - The Fairy's Survival Skills Little Witch Academia 8 - Sleeping Sucy I might go back and browse and rewatch a few things so I'll add on if I end up doing so, was just wondering what episodes everyone else has as some of the best of all time.
  2. Best Anime Episodes

    Talked with a buddy and was reminded of a few more Fate/Zero 11 - The Grail Dialogue Madoka 10 - I Won't Rely on Anyone Anymore K-on 24 - Graduation Ceremony When I have time I want to try and revisit some of these, hopefully most of them are as good as I remember them.
  3. Best Anime Episodes

    No opinions on cg because I have 0 intentions of watching it, but ep 2 of dn is really good. Forgot about it because I think the show is garbage, but it definitely opened with a bang.
  4. Pokemon GO

    I think trading is fine, just another way to reroll every raremon you come across, and personally I wouldn't like it if every egregious multiaccounter got to boost their accs more than they already get to.
  5. What Anime Are You Watching Right Now?

    Personally I think it peaked around 11~12 where every season had a good variety of shows. "Taste" is such a subjective buzzword so it's so hard to find a "peak," but I think variety of shows and having a lot of hits within a lot of different genres show that 11/12 was the peak. After 11/12 it seemed like every studio started chasing AoT/LL, so it either fell into pandering to the idol otaku or psychological/action. I feel like sol sorta has sorta dried up because of it. It's all cyclical anyway, everyone was chasing Eva and then Haruhi then Kon etc so hopefully we get to a point where there's a lot of diversity in the yearly offerings and maybe some studios will start chasing original material again. I think Darling in Franxx was hot garbage, but I give Trigger and A1 a lot of credit for trying something that's not tied to some ip/sequel to something. For how many misses I feel Trigger has, they definitely swing for the fences and I give them credit for putting out anime original content.
  6. Help with some creative research ideas pls

    Poked around a little bit, and the best I could do was potentially talking about that the death penalty leads to an increase of pentobarbitol in the US which in turn could lead to a higher amount of secondary pentobarbitol poisoning of wildlife, this is a real stretch however as according to this from the us fish and wildlife service it seems that most secondary pentobarbitol poisoning is the result of improperly disposed euthanized animals, also pentobarbitol appears to be a common anesthetic used on wild animals. The next best thing that I could find was that states turning to compounding pharmacies as more and more pharmacies refuse to sell drugs required for lethal injection to states, and one of those pharmacies led to a fungal meningitis outbreak. But yeah I'd beg and grovel as well, this one seems pretty fucking difficult. Good luck, I think you're going to need it on this one.
  7. cheapest tinder phone

    people on my local pogo discord were going crazy over $15 Alcatel Ravens, I assume if they run pogo fine they'll run tinder fine as well.
  8. What Anime Are You Watching Right Now?

    that's how i felt for a long time. then ssr came out. there's still hope for the medium.
  9. Pokemon GO

    REDEMPTION.
  10. Star Wars Episode VIII - The Last Jedi

    I think marvel and sw is pretty comparable, and marvel handed the reigns to directors like coogler and waititi. Even dc hired people like jenkins and wan, so I think kennedy and sw could really benefit from those types of choices.
  11. Star Wars Episode VIII - The Last Jedi

    I'm lukewarm on all of those. Comparing those films to villeneuve early shit is apples and oranges. Even something like Prisoners which was fine blows out Looper, Brick, and Super 8.
  12. Star Wars Episode VIII - The Last Jedi

    idk feige handed black panther to coogler and that seems like its doing alright!
  13. Star Wars Episode VIII - The Last Jedi

    If they wanted to make a good movie they'd hand it to villeneuve, and for all the shit I say about comic book movies, at least feige has a clear vision for his universe. Not sure kennedy does though.
  14. Star Wars Episode VIII - The Last Jedi

    It doesn't matter if abrams or johnson direct the next one because neither one has ever made a good movie.
  15. Made in Abyss

    If you're not in by now I'd drop it. I'm not going to watch the second season, that's for sure.
  16. Made in Abyss

    I went in expecting something like kino's journey or girl's last tour, but what I really got was naruto. I agree that it had a fantastic score and was gorgeous, but it felt like it was held back by being forced to pander hard to the otaku crowd. There were so many scenes that I just groaned watching.
  17. Pokemon GO

    It is what it is. I just think it's funny that I encountered the highest and lowest, though I'd rather have the lowest one be the one that fled.
  18. Pokemon GO

  19. Pokemon GO

  20. Star Wars Episode VIII - The Last Jedi

    the first one had some great moments of visual storytelling. It definitely wasn't bad.
  21. Star Wars Episode VIII - The Last Jedi

    People will see this shit regardless whether or not it has the ot actors. It's the same as comic book movies, people will watch any garb as long as the label "Star Wars" is on it. Just like marvel, dc, etc.
  22. Star Wars Episode VIII - The Last Jedi

    I think this trilogy would have been infinitely better if all the fanservice charas were gone. I think that's personally what's held back these films.
  23. Girl's Last Tour

    I was gonna post this in what you're watching now thread, but this show was so good that I think it deserves it's own thread. I stumbled on it because the art style caught my attention. Anyone else see this?
  24. Kino's Journey Reboot

  25. Star Wars Episode VIII - The Last Jedi

    I think this is what divided opinion on this film. If you bought into the "new" direction you'd like it, if you didn't then you don't. Sadly I think a lot of people just assume that all people that disliked it were sw fanboys that felt like it wasn't "their sw," when there are people that just thought that it was ok that they tried something new but thought that what was "new" wasn't actually that cool or exciting.
