this is exactly and perfectly what Netflix would do and I hate it.

They used to (or still do) change the thumbnails of movies based on what race they think you are.


#2032

You can login on different computers and watch it do that, it feels like a carnival barker trying desperately to get my attention. I don’t think there’s a UI design I’ve ever disliked more than Netflix

who knew Punch the Monkey would form the theoretical design basis of the most popular media service in 2019

#2034

actually these two would be kinda fun if there was no dialogue


#2035

I started watching gen:LOCK because Waypoint talked about it it has both gun-holding and gun-mounted mechs. I’m floored at how interesting the sci-fi philosophy is. 2nd episode spoiler: the protagonist gets severely disabled in battle and is used as a candidate for the experimental remote mech pilot program while he’s in a bacta tank not dissimilar to Source Code or Southland Tales. They call it a “decanted mind.” Squarely my shit to an upsetting degree.

I wonder if RWBY is good? When I pulled up Rooster Teeth in my memory I had this and Red vs Blue. Good on Michael B. Jordan for EP’ing it with what I assume is his black vegeta money.

Plus it has a colon in the title. It’s not a semicolon, though, sorry @Rudie.


#2036

rwby is alright, it’s what you think of as far as generic shonen style plot goes. The animation gets better the later it goes on, and it usually runs at a decent frame rate


#2037

Do you like fight animations? Because that’s what RWBY is good at, which makes sense considering how Monty Oum started. Everything else is fairly mediocre.


#2038

6.21


#2039

fun fact: June 21st is the last day of spring


#2040

can’t wait for the renaissance of Neon Genesis Evangelion hentai this is going to spawn, those were the days


#2041

while I appreciate Hi-Score Girl as a cool comic, god it just works so much better as an animated product. a lot of that has to do with the fact that they cared enough about getting game footage that the whole show is CG and 30 fps so everything looks as it should (for the most part); the little bit of awkward looking model work and animation is more than made up over the loving inclusion of (fucking scanlined where appropriate!) gameplay. The OVA/bonus episodes seem cool and I’m glad they’re getting another whole season to finish up the comic even though Netflix will Netflix and it won’t be out until New Years again


#2042

First season actually got fansubbed though because of Netflix release shit so that might happen again.


#2043

I’m heartened by the fact if a no-hype show like ID-0 could get fansubs, anything will

Much like how the base assumption is that I’ll have to grab fansubs for anything Symphogear


#2044

justice league vs the fatal five feels much closer to being part of the dcau proper than batman vs. harley quinn. they should probably just let this old universe go to sleep tho


#2045

the pop team epic special is good (it’s two episodes) but they really did 4 different sets of voice actors instead of the usual 2 lol

adult swim making six hour long episodes of the machu picchu tennis anime thing just for aprils fools is like the perfect hair forever gag except they just released a whole season of tv in one night


#2046

i was wrong the pop team epic thing has 8 sets of voice actors per episode and two episodes


#2047

I don’t think I’ve seen audience-despising this beautiful since Metal Gear Solid 2 well 4 is an even better troll
