    I'm a fair bit behind to be honest. Just need to find the time, but I don't have a lot of it right now. I was surprised to see they were bothering to have it in theaters at all, though the fact they haven't gotten around to releasing the films despite having the license makes me wonder how long after the Japan release it will be. A good portion past a certain point is apparently just a big fight, but a extremely well animated one. Not sure how I feel about that since DB Minus always felt a bit weird.

    Actually looks like tickets opened up around me so I managed to get in a ticket. I just hope I can get there in time as it's an hour after work ends, but traffic can get pretty bad going home at times. Possibly, though I've just been having a harder and harder time imagining him being around all that much or contributing much if he does beyond a last minute save. I think that is selling C.C. incredibly short in terms of her abilities. She helped keep the BK together after Lelouch was captured and Lelouch always took her council seriously. Her major issue I think was apathy, but given a reason to care and her taking it seriously I think she could do just fine. Hell, the point of this might be that she (and everyone else) just need to move on past Lelouch and take care of things themselves. I feel like if he goes again he'd probably still want her to live and encourage her not to give up. Though that's partially that I don't see an ending with both of them alive. If one of them is alive it feels the other must be dead. Honestly, he tends to be about his plans mostly being successful just to fail at some crucial point down the line. I don't put any stock in that promotional video anymore. I think it was a proof of concept teaser they put together to show off the project to fans and the thing evolved into something a bit different with aspects getting set aside. But yeah, I'd be surprised to see him take the mantle back. It says the birth of a new legend so I don't think it's going to be either Lelouch or Suzaku officially taking the mantle, but someone new taking it full time.

    You can infer it from a few conversations and comments had, but it's pretty weird and doesn't seem to matter at all that I still don't get the point either. The two never have a direct conversation onscreen from what I can tell with the closest being phone calls we only hear one side of. Well, they had her get involved on this plan in some way so I'd imagine she's going to show up in some regard or else it's a waste of time. The fact they had a pre-established relationship makes me wonder if, in the event he comes back and sticks around, we're just going to see that they ended up together. Eh, it makes sense why they cut Mao from the movies. Anime is the anime and the movies are the movies. Same general story with some cuts and slight differences. And the anime has its ending while the movies get a continuation.

    I like the deeper red for the Guren though it looks way bulkier which I think is due to the arm.

    It's definitely quite solid and the anime has been quite good as well.

    Same here! Yeah, I've has some family members who needed it done and they didn't have a fun time. Hopefully I don't need to have that done at some point. I've always wondered how much the show has retained it's popularity over the years. It seems to have done so somewhat in Japan, but I doubt it has done so much anywhere else. I think the recent films and Super existing at all means GT is no longer a factor. I wouldn't be opposed to them utilizing some of the concepts from it and reworking them to not be dumb.

    I'm near Austin, but I'd only seen screenings mentioned for San Antonio so far. Hopefully they do some near here. I feel like NYC would definitely have some though as you say having it be near the area you're in could be the catch. I wonder about that really. I could see it being for the finale and perhaps even being just a few minutes at most. Given the whole birth of a new legend line and such, I'd lean towards someone new taking on the role. C.C. doing so to honor Lelouch's memory and exist as an Eternal Zero could line up with that. Not like she doesn't have some experience with it either. I just have extreme doubts of him coming back and actually sticking around at all I suppose. Though I've also been thinking C.C. will probably end up dead or they stick to the status quo with her living on eternally. It'd be nice if there were contingencies, but it wouldn't surprise me if there weren't any either. If Suzaku gets revealed, there's a few easy ways that can be explained away of course.

    Actually, at a recent fan event, there were some reports that he indicated not having recorded any lines for the movie. It may also have been a joke of course about how he's not listed anywhere in the starring credits so far, but hard to say. Shirley coming back was apparently in large part due to Mao's arc getting cut, though other members of the staff wanted to stick with her dying. Director Taniguchi couldn't see it though and so they had her live. They seem to be setting her up for something with her getting involved with C.C. and Jeremiah, but I have no idea what. Taniguchi also had it so that in the movie universe, she and Lelouch were casually dating since freshmen year though none of this is super obvious or important. A few lines here and there that give some indications but that's it. So is she supposed to be a love interest then waiting for him to return? Why would anyone care or expect anything out of her given how unimportant she is in the films?

    I don't know about cut. It takes place between the end of the ZR and start of the film and nothing about it all contradicts what info we have. Though the Black Albion seems to be a remnant from the original test footage that they inserted into canon, but appears to have been dropped or not used in between. What do you think of the new Lancelot and Guren anyway?

    Hey man! And congrats on both of those, though moreso on the Paralegal stuff as the root canals definitely don't sound like a fun time. I'm definitely intrigued though still a bit hesitant on the whole thing due to worrying how it'll play out. I expect we won't see that NA release until some months after the Japanese premiere unless they end up going a month after like the Dragonball Super movie. Don't think CG holds that kind of clout though.

    I just hope they have showing out where I am. Went through an analyzed much of the trailer, which has a lot of interesting stuff going on. I'm actually not convinced Lelouch is going to be in this much at all and wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't show up once. Don't think the Zero they're showing off is him either, but more likely someone like C.C. taking on the role.

    There's a translation of the synopsis as well as a short story they released that takes place a year after ZR with some interesting background details. Was released in conjunction with them announcing a special Zero version of the Lancelot Albion Metal Build figure. The blog I'm linking below actually does a lot of translation work for the series including interviews as well as some of the recent manga.

    I keep forgetting they're doing that. It's weird because I'm so used to the much older animation with it. Speaking of which, did you know they're apparently going to be doing a localized official release of the original?

    It'd be nice if that premium set wasn't the only one because apparently its $800.

    No prob man, best of luck with both. I'm in the Austin area though none of this has happened near me yet and hopefully it stays that way. Hope they catch the nutjob soon too. My complex has lockers for packages so I'd know to avoid any showing up at my doorstep. Thanks for checking in

    Apologies for late response. Just sort of been wrapped up in work and such.

    Great! Hope it indeed ends up panning out for you.

    Some have actually called him the next Miyazaki, though he's been noted as uncomfortable with that title given that their style of works are very different and of course the kind of pressure that comes with that sort of expectation. That's really interesting they went for that route with things. I feel like I don't see too many dubs that take that kind of liberty with things.

    Anime wise the only thing right now really would be Magus Bride and Darling in the Franxx. The former has been surprising because they're literally right at the end of current manga and the most recent chapter doesn't quite resolve things so I guess they'll do something original. Franxx I'm intrigued about mostly because I want to know what's up with the world, but otherwise it feels pretty standard. Given it's 2-cour it seems to be taking it's time but I expect it'll do a shakeup soon. Manga wise it's Shokugeki and One Piece for carry overs. Sort of skimming on AoT but starting to feel like letting that one just accumulate till it ends. New stuff (for a given value since this was last year I started reading) I've gotten really into would be Dungeon Meshi (Fantasy Cooking/Comedy manga about an adventuring party cooking up creatures in a magical dungeon while on a rescue mission) and Kaguya Wants To Be Confessed To (Comedy-Romance I guess though it's main focus is two individuals trying to force the other to confess out of a prideful belief that whoever confesses gives up power and advantage).

    Been anything further on that one? I also think I saw they're releasing some new version of Cold Steel on PS4/PC or something? It's been going alright though there's a lot to learn and I tend to worry I'm not picking it up as fast as I should. Just super fearful about losing my job given what happened before.

    I also need to apologize as I haven't gotten to reading your story yet, but I plan to get to it this weekend. Need to take my car in Saturday to have it looked at (again...) so I'll probably be reading while that gets taken care of.

    Wasn't aware they'd done a graphic version, which is neat. Didn't they do comics of the original Thrawn series or am I thinking of something else? That's fair enough and I can always appreciate ending something at a set point compared it carrying on forever. Nice to see that came out though I still need to read the first. Need to read Words of Radiance too come to think of it. Yeah, I'm not sure what to really do with all that given where things are now. Yep, definitely agree and had a good time at that one. Really enjoyed Wakanda and honestly would have enjoyed more scenes going into their culture and the politics of it all. Michael B. Jordan was fantastic too and I really wish he'd had more scenes honestly. Seeing Isle of Dogs in a couple weeks and a friend got an extra ticket for Ready Player One the weekend it comes out, though I'm a fair bit more iffy on that one. Free though so I can't really complain.

    Thanks! Yep, same apartment and such which I'm happy about. Drive is a bit longer but otherwise fine.

    Hope you hear something soon!

    I quite liked Your Name as well and didn't know the Shokugeki dub was that silly with how they took the dialogue. That one I'm behind on currently. Oh right the Ao games were finished or near it, right? No, haven't been gaming as much as now playing catch up though my shift is 9-6 so I don't end up with too much time before I need to get to bed. Provided the books ever end up coming out that is. True, I imagine that's the big one people might want to try. Yes, I'm fully aware of that theory. I'd actually be surprised if that didn't end up happening in the books, but who knows.

    I wonder if they have anything in mind to replace it. Yeah, I think the stuff with Kylo and Rey was the best part of the movie, but was more mixed on the Finn and Resistance plots. It definitely got me more invested in him compared to TFA.

    Hey man. Apologies for being off the grid for a while. Got sidetracked and then further side tracked. Anyway, ended up getting two offers in the end and accepting one. Into my second week now and I think (or hope) it's going well. Hope things go well for you too.

    Going in person can certainly help as well as looking at things like job fairs and such. Some places where I am even did things called hiring events where they interviewed tons of people, though that had some preliminary stuff before as well. I really hope you get something soon.

    Yeah, feels a little sparse right now though that could also just be me missing other stuff. I've actually picked up a number of new manga to read now in addition. I've fallen behind on a lot including reading. The books are also the type I feel the need to take a break from given how bleak they can be. Nothing that comes to mind. I admit I find that bleakness a bit draining, which I guess is the main thing. Ah gotcha. What does Rhaegar live or something like that? I know the gist of a lot of things that happen though some of it is mixed in with the show I'm sure. Spoilers don't really affect me anymore honestly.

    Isn't Rebels supposed to be ending soon. I'm curious what you'll think. I had some issues myself.

    Traffic is probably pretty heavy there too I imagine, which can sort of help with practice in those kinds of conditions. Yeah, hopefully something comes sooner rather than later. I've gotten more hits than I would have thought honestly, which I'm grateful for. I hadn't done too many interviews prior to this either so it's been good practice. It gets better generally the more you get used to it. And good luck with the hunt! Well, the friend was out of the country with another friend dogsitting. He'd seen it be just fine most of the time. It had just been towed due to the damage the day before I got home apparently and he didn't realize as he hadn't ventured out. Friend felt terrible when she got back, especially since this sort of thing had never happened in their neighborhood to their knowledge. I'll need to get a new car too eventually at some point so hopefully this one manages to last a bit longer while I try to save up for that.

    Pretty much my approach. I've got a few others I followed up on who said they'd start interviewing in the Spring so there's that too. But yeah the agencies generally have a lot of stuff available I've found.

    Haven't really gotten many games lately in part due to saving and due to trying to get through the backlog if I can. I've seen a few of what's been out recently as well as some new manga series I've started reading, but largely quiet on that front I guess. And nice! Don't have the latter at all and only through book 2 on the former. Not exactly like I need to be in a hurry unless those last two books come out in quick succession. Oh so does it take place after the point the books stopped at and the show started diverging? The show I've only gotten through the second season, though it's one of those cases where I have a general understanding of what's going on in current events. Like I know all how the most recent one ended for instance.

    Hey man, glad to hear from you. Congrats on the license! Still hunting though I've been getting interviews at least and I figure things may ramp up with the new year. Have one that's been ongoing that I'm in the final stages for, so I may have something soon. 2017 did decide to kick me in the teeth one last time. Came home to find my car towed from the place from where I'd left it by a friend who lived near the airport as I'd done before. Turns out it was because someone had based in two of my windows and got halfway doing a third. So dealing with that now though it looks like insurance will cover it.

    Yeah I know that game. There are services and whatnot that can do a review for some tips on how to improve if you're not getting too many hits. I know doing so when I started hunting seems to have helped. Contract work can also be an option and there are agencies that help with that.

    Been finding stuff to do on my end as well. Games from the backlog, podcasts, movie now and then though rather infrequent. Need to do a lot of catching up on my reading I'm afraid. And I'd certainly be open to reading some though I'm afraid I'm not caught up. Would this be more the book continuity or the show?

    Yep, let's hope 2018 is all around a better year
