    Y'all better learn how to trade VHS tapes.

    Alice to Zourouku with a recap episode this week. It's almost like last week was the season finale given how it ended, and now there's midseason break in the form of a recap episode with the following season airing next week.
    Subs for LWA also delayed by 24 hours. Withdrawal levels rising.

    On the whole loli talk, you're all conflating the idea that loli = no tiddies. Body proportions is one of the main (and many) ways we perceive body growth/age. You could argue tiddies (or lack of) help define those proportions (which they do), but there are other body parts too.

    If you look at the example image, you can see her torso is only about 2 heads large which are the ideal proportions of younger body types. The legs however are sized more towards adult proportion. The roundness of the head also play a factor here as well. Through age, the head becomes more elongated and less round. Of course there are other small nuances too, like how simplistic body features lacking in details such as muscle structure convey a less developed body that has yet to reach maturity.

    Our brains are wired up to associate cuteness with young age. So it's no wonder why you see a lot of these 'loli' type traits being so prevalent within the 'moe' artstyle which is entirely based around getting people attached to cute looking characters.

    @beesuit should descend once a week and teach the plebs about the ways of the loliism. But why was @Preppy using your avatar? Don't share the loli dragon.

    Should I really start Initial D, and if the answer is yes, from the beginning?
    I don't really care about cars, but the music is so good and it seems to be a mandatory watch.

    Makes me all fuzzy inside and happy.

    im a car lover, so initial D is god tier status for me. if your going to watch it, you should definitely start from the beginning. im pretty sure you already know, but the animation is not the best, but i never let that turn me away from a good anime.

    I asked him for help cause he had a non-square avi and I was trying to do the same. You can see my later attempts on my profile history (stupid thing keeps zooming in to keep a square aspect ratio rather than resizing it instead).
    http://forums.shoryuken.com/profile/beesuit

    Eventually I just settled on a square image and packed out the rest of the canvas with empty space. This meant there was that ugly blank space between the join date and username though.

    In the end, Preppy found out u had to resize beforehand and keep the source image to be about 160px wide when u upload. And now there's no more ugly space. YDnVWm4.gif

    Bear in mind I pruned a bunch of your image experimentation from the board activity list, as I use that to keep tabs on joins, level updates, and possible spambots. For some reason if somebody changes their av twenty times it shows up there ... twenty times, so I just purge out most of the irrelevant/outdated avatar changes.

    If only the Activity page had a filter. :smile:

    lol, I actually got softbanned (locked out 100 or 600 seconds can't remember) from editing my post too many times in a row too. The warning said I hit a post limit within an x amount of time (a minute or 30sec maybe). Seems like the system might be counting edits as new posts, funnily enough.

    Hokay, started Initial D, 7 episodes so far. Was on my list for a long time and watched Lucky Star at the weekend once again, having the Initial D scene with that art style and CGI... and eurotrash like me deserves the eurobeat OST. Thought I'd have to work with lots of alternative storylines etc. but guess just some movies and the regular seasons. So on the "one day I'll watch it... maybe... probably not" remain NGE, Fate & FMA.

    We've actually been watching Initial D at the local animu club I'm running, just got to the end of Second Stage and there's only one thing that's pissing me off about it.
    Takumi's streak needs to fucking die already, was fed up of people in the first season being like "Oh no don't race this guy, you'll lose" and whilst I would have thought Takumi having his engine blow out, having been told "In a race that's a loss" and taking it as a loss himself, the streak thing would be dead but nope, the entire rest of the cast is all "That doesn't count" and on to talking about the fucking undefeated streak again.


    Fucks sake, it's lucky the show itself is so good because that shit's annoying as fuck.
    “It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more... than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so ****ing what."

    I first saw Initial D in 04' when the local video rental store had the Tokyopop Dvds and was hooked. The dub is ironically one I enjoyed just as much as the jap voice overs and more than the funimation dub. Even the music selection of the Tokyopop version went well. It was a bit, at times, cheesy with some of the forced voice acting and iirc cutting in the "Initialiiiize" part of the song during the dramatic transition of scenes but that shit was fucking hilarious to me.

    Yeah, Initial D is a good anime to get into even though I have slightly mix opinion of the most recent OVAs. As for other motorsports anime, I suggest Wangan Midnight(not as good) and Bari Bari Legend(as good but I'm biased). I would say Bakoun!! But its not on the same tone or what, though if you know japanese bikes and the culture, its great picking out all the details, as the anime did an amazing job at it.

    Man, Kingdom right now is great. I mean it's always been great but my man Ousen has turned this shit up to an 11! Motherfucker lays a map out on the ground when they're outnumbered 2 to 1 and politely asks for some time to make a new strategy while his men fight around him. Great scene with enemy soldiers being slaughtered and there's Ousen with his arms crossed staring at a map calmly. Riboku talked all that shit when he went to Qin talking about "Who will you send after me? Kanki? Ousen? I already know how to deal with them." Now everytime they show Riboku, he's got the "Oh Shit" face when he gets battlefield updates now that Supreme Commander Ousen is doing shit even he didn't know was strategically possible. Even Kanki is caught off guard by these strats.

    I know everyone loves Aizen from Bleach but man if you guys love Aizen I know you'd get a kick out of Ousen. If you've never read this manga, please start ASAP. Been reading it for a few years now and it hasn't had a dry spell through the volumes like others have.

    Discussed this a few pages back. Manga has been confirmed cancelled. Cancellation due to poor anime sales is just a rumor; no evidence to support that.

    Series was on life support even before the anime, anime selling like shit was just the nail in the coffin.

    The manga ending is real. The authour apologizing and shit is probably fake.

    Apparently the manga's been having ratings and sales issue for a while now (it's always been at the back of the magazine). They were probably banking on the anime to get a boost in interest, but the anime selling like shit proved otherwise. I'm chalking this down to a lack of nudity, even if the fanservice was creatively a step above the generic highschool shovelware. To be honest, the authour out of all people would've been one of the first to see the writing on the wall for his series. It'd be shortsighted if he didn't have an ending plan already in the works for such a case. That's not to say the chances of a S2 didn't just get that much slimmer, it has. There's nothing left to advertise and S1 doesn't have much legs to stand on sales wise either. But if stuff like Hellsing managed a series of followup OVA thanks to popularity outside of Japan, then I'm gonna say this has a chance too. If there's enough foreign noise (which there has been plenty of on the internet), then the chances aren't entirely zero. Maybe I'm just being overly optimistic though, who knows. Either way 18 volumes since 2013 ain't so bad of a run, and if anything I feel like Keijo actually contributed a lot more to the medium than it's sales number actually represented. I don't think many series will be able to replicate the same masterful combination of action and fanservice as well as Keijo did.

    Done with the first two seasons of Initial D.
    I like it, well. So far. I really hope that the MC will lose a race at some point by being outclassed...
    Knew most of the OST beforehand, top tier. No surprise there.
    Not sure if I really want to keep watching the rest
