  1. When you've built a spread sheet titled 'Dooms Day' to calculate your 'survival time' in terms of months on which you could be unemployed and coast on cash reserves and your goal is to get it to 18 months but you're thiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiis close. :/

      *panics and screams*

      18 months days

      Yeah I can do that easy as long as I don't go out to eat and did some overtime last week and push a bill or two back

  2. So what do I do literally after blowing through $1000 at Anime North last weekend? Why I start buying more anime garbage of course. Why not? I got the Princess Princess Premium art book for $24 on ebay. Though it's going to come by the slowest shipping possible and take 1-2 months to turn up. But squeeee, a whole artbook of Tsuda-san's crossdressing manga boys. <3
  3. Generating ad revenue for a pirate operation doesn't mean you're not pirating. ...It just makes you stupid enough to consume ads for pirated material that you could have just pirated for FREE and WITHOUT ADS elsewhere.
  4. $20 says 'It's because it looks different than our other sets and it's visually interesting'.
  5. Both KissManga and KissAnime are pirate sites.
  6. That site is for sure NOT a grey area. It's pretty obviously a pirate streaming site and here on a site that has had Crunchyroll as a sponsor at times, they're DEF not going to let you post it here.
  7. I'm honestly confused by this product. What does it really offer that you couldn't just throw on teh Android store and have accessible to phones, set top boxes and even some Smart TVs? It doesn't even LOOK like an Atari, it just VAGUELY resembles one and has wood grain. Nintendo's 'Mini' offerings fed well into nostalgia by offering what was a scaled down replica of their childhood game console where as this only vaguely invokes the styling. It just kinda seems like a wood grain NUC.
  8. Canadians: Oh look, the Americans only just now heard of Phoenix. :V
  9. Well, I'm actually a LITTLE off, it's 18, my bad. But the final episode, 'Sakura And Her True Feelings' aired in March 2000, so the cel would have been produced no more than 2-3 months prior to the episode's airing.
  10. It's a 19 year old cel, if I don't display it properly it won't last another 19 years.
  11. Some other things I picked up at the con.  Discounted Read Or Die and Evangelion art books, $10 each.  A Serial Experiments Lain 'Collector's Action DOLL' and... TINY PLASTIC FOOD! :3

      are the bottom ones plates or what?

    2. AshleyAshes


      It's tiny plastic food! :D

    3. Jtalk4456


      Dangit, I wanted the mini plates!

  12. 1) HRT prevents baldness if one is pre-disposed to it. 2) Hair grows long if you don't cut it short.
  13. *pelts you with rocks until the words 'Super Dimension Fortress Macross' escapes your lips*
  14. How about some other purchases from Anime North this year?


    Manga!  A collection of Utena illustrations by the Mangaka.  Also this 15 year old, STILL SEALED, player's guide to a boys love visual novel.  Not enough player's guides these days feature boys kissing each other if you ask me.






    1. Hiitchy


      Someone should have purchased a bulldozer for Sunday.

    2. AshleyAshes


      No, Sunday was for all the gay stuff. :D  Boys are best when kissing other boys. :D

  15. Today is a day of ripping ALL the media discs I got at Anime North this weekend so that they can be accessible on my media server.

    I got some good deals. New, sealed, Haganai BDs for $60 CAD each, these are out of print now and Aniplex will be re-releasing them for a much higher price.  Meanwhile I got dumb trashy Sukisyo in a box set for $6.

      I just need enough for a 2 bay nas and 3 2 tb harddrives to put in raid 5

  16. 1) As I said, $130 was the ASKING price and I haggled down to $105 2) It's not a card it is an animation cel. As in it is one of the actual pieces of celluloid that had the art carefully painted onto it and was then layered over other celluloid sheets, such as the background. to make a complete image and then photographed to make a frame of animation. It quite literally is a piece of the animation process that has been resting in a bag for some 19 years since that episode was produced. I imagine you think it is card because there is a piece of cardboard behind the celluloid sheet to protect the paint on the back and to allow you to act as a background on an otherwise transparent medium.
  17. It's really not so bad. I took out $700 from the bank just in spending cash to ensure I never had to hit an ATM at the con. I'm a fan of Cardcaptor Sakura, I'm a fan of the pre-digital animation process, it's from the final episode and it has four main characters on it. Plus one signature that is personalized to me so far. Of course NOW I need to get the proper means to display it, including a UV filtering frame to ensure the sunlight never harms it. Ah, yeah, side by side comparison, after I went hunting for the shot in the series:
  18. It's $130, which was the price tag when I bought it, however I haggled it down to $105 which I'm told is a good price (Canadian Dollars). A cel collector ALSO in the autograph line saw mine and asked about it, asked what I paid, when I said $105 he was like 'That's pretty good!'
  19. So, on Friday I got an animation cel from Card Captor Sakura featuring Tomoyo, Sakura, Kero and Li. This is from the final episode of the original TV series no less. ...Saturday I spent over an hour in line to get the cel autographed by Junko Iwao who voiced Tomoyo. I guess now I need to collect the other cast members.
  20. So... I now own a Card Captor Sakura animation cel...


  21. I love living in a civilized country.
  22. https://api.unrealengine.com/udk/Two/PublicModResource.html It would appear that you will need to BUY Unreal Tourney to access the engine. There is no stand alone development version like UT3.
  23. So in QUEERER news, my best friend from high school is arriving here in Toronah for Anime North. I've not seen her sine 2007. Back in 10th grade she was loaning me untranslated physical yaoi manga. Everything that's wrong with me is her fault and we gonna weeeeeeeeeeeeb it up. ^_______________^
  24. I don't think it was ever intended to have people PURELY talk about LGBT issues.
  25. I mean, I'd argue that as long as the people in this thread are mostly LGBT thread, it's more or less on the rails that was originally intended.
