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!

New season, new anime. What are you watching?

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

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:

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]
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]
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

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:

Animation / Gateway Anime Discussion
« on: 2017-02-02 21:31:27 »
Continuing the discussion from club on what got you into anime: what shows got you into anime? Where did you watch it? A lot of people seemed to start with Toonami, but I think that's becoming less and less common. Besides just getting you into anime as a whole, was there a show that got you into the so-called anime mainstream (e.g. Haruhi)?

Here I will do the job of watching this trash so that you don't have to. 感謝しなさいわ。

The first few posts will be from Twitter, since I already deleted those screenshots.

He's fantasizing about her sniffing his gym clothes, which in his mind looks like this. This guy makes Junichi Tachibana seem normal.

Not mine, but definitely my favorite from episode 2:

Oh, and uh... please subscribe.

Animation / Winter 2017 Anime Season - Discussion Thread
« on: 2017-01-06 12:12:53 »
It's that time again... I'm not done with half of what I started last season, but anime waits for no one.

So maybe you're a recent convert to the Glorious PC Master Race, or maybe you're an old hand. In either case, you ought to take pride in your battle station, whatever its relative level of performance, because it is YOURS. To enable you in that, I've created this thread for you to post nerdy specs and pictures of your window into the Wired.

So, I've been playing a few visual novels that I'd known about for a long time, but am looking to branch out. I'm currently playing ef - the first tale (on hold because I'm trying to get my hands on the Japanese version) and Rewrite. I'm not opposed to playing some other classics like the Key stuff, but I'm also looking for newer titles and titles for which there is no anime adaptation. H- or otherwise is fine as long as the story is good. So, what should I play next?

And yes, I know Fate/ is a thing... I will play some iteration of it eventually.
