Chapter 12, Kyudo. More lenghty than i imagined, and quite challenging, the right kind of challenging.

☆★★★★ An unknown and way underrated game that mixes beat 'em up and 2d shooter (with bullet hell touches), and damn well.
Demon Gaze
Conquered all circles and cornered Mars, leveling my Migmy healer and then to progress!

☆★★★★ I expected the art style to be less fanservicey, but, eh, whatever.

[EXPRESSO] Calling WII | Tedium In The Dark

C’è da dire che, per quanto sia un polpettone svergognato di clichè dell’horror giapponese, Calling avrebbe una buona atmosfera iniziale, ma non c’è nulla di solido a sostenerla. Sebbene uscito ben prima dell’orda incontrol...

I didn't know that you do anime reviews. I can kinda agree with you there, because there's so much anime out there to watch that it's hard to choose. then you have long-running series that go on for decades (like you mentioned). I think for that reason, I'd rather watch the Kai version of DB Z since it's got fewer episodes to go through (167 as opposed to 291), as I did enjoy watching some scenes of the original version here and there. the only other show I watched from start to finish aside from Yu-Gi-Oh was Death Note (which, only having 37 episodes, didn't take long to finish), and I only found THAT show out from buying Castlevania Judgment (the artist of DN was involved with the character designs of the game).

Yeah, it was a pretty big deal.

Yuck. the DLC practices are why I barely buy DLC for games. it's why I wait for some games to get a re-release with all of the DLC included, such as any game made by NRS. about the only game I went through the trouble of buying was SSB 4.

I heard about the musou patent via a Guru Larry video. it didn't stop Eighting, as they made 3 Kamen Rider games that have musou-style gameplay. [Link]

From what I could find, it's $716 if you bought the season passes and $1,177 if you bought them all individually. yeah, I think I'll stick with the base game...

You can see it for yourself! [Link] it reminds me of this scene from Scary Movie 3. [Link] they (4kids) also skipped over Laboon, so what we get is a iceberg that can moan somehow... [Link]

It's not. despite the show being aired in Japan since 1999, we didn't get a English dub until 2004 (that was done in America. there was a English dub that was done in Singapore, by Odex). FUNimation had always shown interested in doing a dub, but 4kids got to the license first due to Toei's desperation (which I'm sure has come back to bite them in the ass now). and yeah, I think 4kids dub kinda ruined the series reputation over here, as it took until 2013 for the show to be aired on TV again (and even then it was pulled from TV this year).

Yeah, it's insane that Toei would force 4kids to dub a show that any well-minded fan would know that they would edit the fuck out of. they (4kids) never recovered from that, and the lawsuit they got with NAS regarding Yu-Gi-Oh sealed their fate.

Not just Pirate Warriors 1 and 2; 3 along with Burning Blood are digital-only on PS Vita/PS3, and only saw a physical release on PS4 (though you could argue that it's mostly because of the Vita not doing too well in the west on top of the PS3 being phased out), and I believe Unlimited World was exclusive to GS. the Unlimited Cruise games didn't even make it over at all.

Oh, I see.

lol fail. 4kids/other companies usually take it a step further by making the man sound like he's breathing, or have someone else say that he's passed out. this really backfired when they tried doing this with the Shanks scene in One Piece by saying that the gun one of his crew members fired was only a blank so he'd be fine, never mind that the fact that blanks can be just as deadly as a normal bullet if fired at point-blank range (just ask Jon-Erik Hexum).

In my case, it's because I just stopped watching once I realized that the shows I were watching for years were heavily censored. a lot of the plot points that I was always confused about during my time of watching Yu-Gi-Oh DM only made sense to me once I got to watch the Japanese dub. that, and anime no longer appears on regular TV over here, you need to have cable now (and while my mom has that, I don't have a way to catch it on my own TV). so Crunchyroll is my only option.

A lot of people have complained about this for the Blazblue series, as the first 3 games were dual audio (in the west, anyway), while the most recent one was Japanese dub only because Aksys Games cheaped out at the last minute (they wanted to shorten the gap between regional releases). the voice actors were upset/disappointed, and it even led to them making a petition about it. didn't help.

The same thing happened with Atelier Ayesha, which was localized by Tecmo Koei (who owns the developer, Gust); the English release was English audio only, which pissed those who loved the Japanese voices of the previous games (which were localized by NIS America), so for the Vita release and all subsequent games, the publishers went back to dual audio for the western releases. so at least that one had an happy ending.

Didn't know Koei was cutting corners also. you'd think they'd go the extra mile, since DW/Musou is one of their cash cows.

Reminds me of how Tales of Hearts R only saw a Japanese dub in the west, because I guess Bandai-Namco didn't want to go through the trouble of recording a English dub for a Vita installment. the translation was crap; either the translators they hired weren't very good, or they were planning on an English dub that would change some things around and just abandoned it halfway through. for example, Shing was renamed Kor, but you can still hear people refer to him as "Shing" in the Japanese audio.

I guess to TFS, they just took it as a challenge. like "let's see if we can't make it even more ridiculous". hell, even Attack on Titans got an abridged dub. unfortunately, that one only lasted one episode (the rights holders got super pissed with that one).

That's good to hear. I guess they take their dubbing seriously!

It's not just that, either. 4kids and sometimes other dubbing companies accidentally create some "oops, we forgot to remove this/didn't think this through" moments. like in Episode 18 of Pokemon where a guy named Ryu/Moe takes a liking to Kasumi/Misty saying that things would be more fun when she's older, with the dub instead changes it to him saying that he reminds her of his granddaughter... but he still blushes at her with that creepy expression, which has the unfortunate implication of making it seem like he's into incest (in all honestly, 4kids were better off just removing that scene completely). or that time where their dub of One Piece changed Bellemere's gun to a shovel, but forgot to remove the gun clicking noise, resulting in gun-cocking shovel. or pretty much every scene where a character's death is changed to being captured despite the fact that the character never appears again (so I guess they got quietly tortured to death instead?). One Piece was especially bad because 4kids actually had no interest in the show at all, and the only reason why they dubbed it was because Toei told them to (Toei wanted One Piece to be released in America so bad that they refused to license out any of their other shows to 4kids unless they include One Piece). weird thing is, Shaman King was actually their least censored dub from what I've heard (they even slipped in a use of the word jackass).

From what I've read/seen, pretty much every country that isn't located somewhere in Asia gets the censored 4kids dub with the replaced music (there were very few exceptions, such as Sonic X's French dub). they even made their own dub of Winx Club for the US (which is an Italian show; not sure if you've heard of it, though) despite the fact there already existed an English dub of that show in Canada that they could have licensed instead.

LOL. bloody fun for the whole family! I wonder if that was removed from later TV ratings. XD

Myself, I am slowly getting back into anime now, and right now, I've been watching Yu-Gi-Oh DM on crunchyroll. I'm up to Episode 39.

Oh, I didn't know that you haven't seen (or even heard of) abridged, either. if you watched one, it's honestly not that different from what happened with Ghost Stories as they're usually done for laughs. I haven't watched too many, but so far, I really enjoyed Yu-Gi-Oh DM (the first ever series to get an abridged dub) and Dragon Ball Z abridged. Hellsing was pretty hilarious, too (which is weird as I've not even seen the actual show), as was Attack on Titan (which sadly only got one episode). interestingly, FUNimation actually got the TFS guys (the ones who did DBZ) to lend their voices to an episode (the one where they re-enact the Cell Games), but Toei found out and basically told them to redub it before it got aired. [Link] also, one of them lended his voice in the Xenoverse games.

Oh, you're from Italy. I'm kinda curious; how were the Italian dubs of the shows you've watched? if you can't answer, that's fine.

Myself, when it comes to anime, I had to choose, I would prefer the Japanese dub instead of the one in my local language (English, since I'm from America) if the dub was heavily, heavily altered for the worse (as in because of censorship); so basically anything that was dubbed by 4kids I'd rather just watch in Japanese, such as Yu-Gi-Oh DM and One Piece (especially the latter; it's only really worth watching for unintentional hilarity that comes from the censorship). I'm also not nearly as bothered about games that are being released with Japanese-only dubs as some people, though that might be because I'm actually been trying to learn Japanese for years now in order to better understand Japanese-only games. still, I wouldn't mind watching another hilarious dub like the one in Ghost Stories. XD

The episode you're talking about actually didn't get aired because of parents that had children whose faces were deformed (due to a disorder) complained about it. it wasn't even included in the overseas DVD release. also, most listings I've seen on Wikipedia tend to treat the special separately...

Yeah, watching some of the clips, it almost felt like ADV was watching an abridged dub of the show and thought "screw it, let's just use this abridged dialogue for the actual dub". then I remembered that the English dub didn't actually cut anything out (as abridged dubs usually merge several episodes into one) and this predated even the Yu-Gi-Oh abridged dub. XD

Also (and I don't know if this is true or not), it seems that the show's tanking almost killed Pierrot (one of the two studios behind the show), as they sold the rights to ADV in order to avoid bankruptcy. it might also explain why there's only 20 episodes.
The truth is still engulfed within the spires of chaos.
