Here's a little something that I had surprising practical use for this past week.

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.

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?

INtellectual Exploration / Re: The Crunchyroll Bitrate Saga Explained

I don't watch Crunchyroll's streams that avidly anymore, especially not for old titles (I had a glitch where CR's ads wouldn't load right but also wouldn't let me reload or even exit fullscreen mode so I'd have to restart my laptop 1-3 times per episode; aah, that #relatable rural internet feel) but I do watch releases on airing shows so I understand why people would be upset about this as it would directly effect me too. Also, just saying, I'm pretty sure sites like KissAnime use Horriblesubs' rip of Crunchyroll releases, so it would effect a wide range of viewers...

That said, I'm not really wading into the thick of the argument either. I'm glad they seem to be addressing it, and hopeful that they'll at least return the quality to around where it used to be, and I'm leaving it at that for now.

I'm sure anything would be helpful, but especially art! TBH we haven't really talked about this at CAINE meetings yet, mostly just here and in social meetups, but maybe we can talk about it along with the workshopping for Misspent Youth next meeting.

Edit: I'm sure we do NOT want to get this dark with it, but as an example of the kind of seamy underbelly that UVA has to explore, here's an article about the since-destroyed Anatomical Building Jefferson designed for the medical school: http://uvamagazine.org/articles/theatre_of_the_macabre
This is pretty gruesome and has some nasty racial overtones, but there are a lot of dark secrets like this hiding in the school's past that we could shamelessly appropriate.
