Animation / Fall 2017 Anime Season - Discussion Thread
« on: 2017-10-07 16:35:12 »
So, I realize that we missed summer due to everyone being on break and forum usage dropping off, but I hope the new members will help re-vitalize them this semester!

If you are new, this thread is a place to tell us what you are watching/looking forward to watching this anime season. The only rule is NO SPOILERS!

To start things off, I suggest taking a look at what Kizunai Ai is watching:

Spam / Introductions Thread (Fall 2017)
« on: 2017-09-27 19:42:57 »
Hey, everybody. If you are new to the forums, please consider leaving a post here introducing yourself. I'm not asking for your real identities or anything if you don't want to post those, but maybe just say something about yourself--favorite shows, comics, games, etc.--so we know what your interests are.

Welcome to CAINE!

Making personalized bingo cards has become a meme, so this is a space to post your worst.

At the request of someone who couldn't make it to the presentation, here is Franklin's .ppt on the Fate/ and larger Nasuverse from the end of the semester. I'm sure he or others can answer any questions you might have.

News / New Forum Theme
« on: 2017-05-15 22:54:01 »
Hey, everybody.

So, you probably noticed the forums look quite different. Don't panic, if you like the vanilla layout more, you can change your own profile to use that by going to the "Look and Feel" section of your profile page. What this theme does give us, though, is better layout on mobile platforms and the flexibility to modify it as we like going forward.

For those of you interested in keeping this new theme, though, I want to get your input on color palettes. The current colors are just something I chose on a whim, and are easy to change. So, I'd like you to vote in this poll for the colors you would like to see. If you don't see anything there you like, drop a comment below!

Animation / Nyaamageddon
« on: 2017-05-03 17:34:40 »
As of May 1st, 2017 nyaa.se, the world's largest English-language anime, manga, music and game tracker was shut down. Here are some of the details:

There are some other trackers still operating like Doki's Anidex and Minglong, but they do not have nearly the catalog Nyaa did. Now, may of Nyaa's magnet links are still available on tokyotoshokan (which is an index, not a tracker, BTW), so it's not like everything is gone, but it is a huge blow. BakaBT is still around, but they have recently made the move to become a private tracker, and their closed nature means that they don't have every show, or only have a bad release of a show you might want. And obviously all currently active groups are just releasing their own magnet links for ongoing shows.

I do expect a new site to emerge in the not-too-distant future, but in the mean time, you might not want to delete anything you already have downloaded.

Oh, and if you're a tool who uses Kissanime, this affects you too, because the morons who run that site won't be able to find stuff when it gets DCMAed and they have to re-upload it.

Animation / AOTY: A Look Back
« on: 2017-04-27 10:42:18 »
So, there is this thing going around that finally made it to anime twitter the other day when Miles from Crunchyroll posted this:


A few of us in Facebook chat got into it and posted our own lists, but I wanted to make a single spot to do that where everybody can see them, so I made this thread. So, with that, here is my list:

2012: Shinsekai Yori
2013: Nagi no Asukara
2014: Fate/Stay Night UBW
2015: Hibike! Euphonium
2016: Re:Zero
2017: Legend of the Galactic Heroes

There is no reason you can't go back further than five years, either, or include movies, so get creative with it!

Animation / The Best of Haruhi Dance Parodies
« on: 2017-04-02 20:50:18 »
This is a place to post the best of the many, many Haruhi dance parodies made over the years.

To start things off here is a great JRPG-style CG version I've always liked:



And here is the famous CPDRC Prison inmates doing the dance:

Spam / Overwatch Thread
« on: 2017-03-23 16:38:34 »
I'm almost shocked nobody made one of these already. In any case, this is a place to share Overwatch related memes, highlights, news, and more! It is also a great way to find other people in CAINE who play!

To get started, post your Blizzard battletag so people can find you! If there's interest, I might make a CAINE Overwatch discord server as well.

My battletag is Tormaid#1364, and I play on PC.

This year is super weird because we're seeing sequels and reboots of shows that frankly nobody asked for or expected. I'm trying to compile a full list, so if you know of any others, let me know below and I'll add them.

  • Legend of the Galactic Heroes (Re-adaptation)
  • Full Metal Panic IV (Sequel)
  • Kino no Tabi (Re-adaptation)
  • Eureka Seven (Reboot)
  • Hell Girl (Reboot)
  • Uchouten Kazoku 2 (Sequel)

So, since this pertains to anime and the club, and since not everybody here uses Facebook, I thought I'd share this article I wrote that at the very least has a decent summary of events surrounding the whole Crunchyroll bitrate debacle. Would love to hear people's thoughts on this: do you watch a lot of streaming video? How much does image quality matter to you?

News / Guide: Auto-updating MAL Signature Banners
« on: 2017-03-05 16:29:09 »
You may have noticed my MAL banner signature, and wondered how to create your own. The processes of configuring one is fairly straightforward, but betting it to auto-refresh is trickier, so I thought I'd make a guide detailing how I accomplished this.

First, go to this page on MAL: https://myanimelist.net/editprofile.php?go=signature

There, you can setup how you want your signature banner to look. You can also upload your own background image. That must have a height of 105px, and can have a width of up to 600px.

You can now hit save and copy the embed code at the top of that page it will look something like this:

Code: [Select]
[url=https://myanimelist.net/animelist/tormaid&sclick=1][img]https://myanimelist.net/signature/tormaid.png[/img][/url]
In order to make it automatically refresh like mine, though, you will need to add a random string after the image filename like this (after the .png):

Code: [Select]
[url=https://myanimelist.net/animelist/tormaid&sclick=1][IMG]https://myanimelist.net/signature/tormaid.png?80172489074[/img][/url]
You can use the same number as I did, or a random long string of numbers of your own. This essentially generates a new URL each time the image is called which forces the browser to re-download the image when the page is refreshed and not cache it. I'm sure XT or someone else can explain in more detail exactly what is going on, but I can confirm that it works for me. Anyway, just copy that modified code into your signature field and you should be good.

Animation / Sakura Quest Hype
« on: 2017-02-15 23:16:40 »
Could this show be the next Hanasaku Iroha?! PA Works is calling it the next show in their "working" series, which includes Hanasaku and Shiro Bako... Time will tell!

Spam / Pixiv Trope Dictionary
« on: 2017-02-05 16:40:29 »
I stumbled across this while translating a certain doujin (check back on the Hot Tub soon for more on that). The names for some of these tropes are absolutely hilarious.

Take「童貞を殺すセター」or the "virginity-slaying sweater," which has been making its rounds on the web lately. Example:
