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!

Not quite 30 seconds but, eh, close enough.

This is an abomination.

I hate it when people perpetuate false information... I guess this is a reminder to always triple-check compatibility. 

As an aside, I had some kind of driver issue with my basic scrub webcam/mic that chipmunked me and rendered me completely unintelligible (one of the more frustrating yet hilarious software issues I've had) so someone gifted me a Blue Snowball mic, and it's by far the nicest USB mic I've ever used. The sound quality is noticeably improved from before, even just in game chat. (Maybe I'll get noticed on Twitch now lol ^^; )


The mic issue was super weird though... Must be a Windows 10 thing, though, since it works on your sister's computer fine, right?

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:

Thanks for posting the recs list; there's a weekend sale on Steam so I'm looking up some of these. Some other titles I've heard recommended but never played: Amnesia, Dandelion & Nameless (by Cheritz, who made Mystic Messenger) and Hakuoki.

I will say I dropped the Amnesia anime adaptation like a hot rock, but maybe it was just a bad adaptation.

Here is the /vg recommendation chart I mentioned in club yesterday. Looks like a pretty good starting point if you're looking to get into visual novels.

I got to play in the Tespa College Overwatch Tournament this weekend, and recorded both our games. First matchup was terrible, but the second game was quite good:

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.

3. Youjo Senki: Saga of Tanya the Evil

Now, not to be biased or anything, but this is probably my favorite show for this season. It has several elements which remind me of Code Geass in that the main protagonist, Tanya, displays qualities more suited towards a villain. She is not only evil, as the title implies, but intelligent and skilled which makes her all the more overpowered in a sense. The action scenes are well executed and I enjoy how it includes post credit/ ending song scenes as well, similar to Marvel movies. While some people may not initially watch it due to Tanya being a salaryman reborn as a little girl, which is included in the summary, I think people should give it a shot and at least watch three episodes before deciding for themselves whether to continue or not.

I'm just going to hop on the Youjo Senki bandwagon myself and say it's quite enjoyable, and you're absolutely right that people should give it a few episodes before deciding if they're going to continue. While the first episode had a lot of action, it wasn't nearly as compelling as the second.

Animation / Re: Sakura Quest Hype
« on: 2017-03-23 16:23:37 »
I'm getting a little hype about the voice actors they've got for this show. Chika Anzai (Reina in Hibike, Merry in Grimgar), Tomoyo Kurosawa (Kumiko in Hibike, Sylphy in Amagi Brilliant Park),  Mikako Komatsu (Yume in Grimgar, Miuna in Nagi Asu, Totsuka Saika in Romcom Snafu), etc.

The main girl, Ayaka Nanase, is pretty inexperienced, but it'll be nice to see a fresh face I think.

I like the mix of well-known VAs in supporting roles, and fresh faces for the main characters. ReZero did the same thing and I think we can all agree it worked out pretty darn well for that show.

Proposal for layout:

  • Cover
  • Character Art (Single Drawings)
  • Reviews and Articles
  • Comics
  • Writing and Translation
  • Signature Page(s) (Yearbook Style)
  • Back Cover

We ought to have at least one submission in each of these categories, but another option is scattering the individual drawings and art around to add visual interest between the longer writing pieces. What do you all think?

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)
