kiggy007: (thinking)
Can anyone please explain to me what's wrong with the new ToS? I think I might be missing some key important point in the new ToS.

I read it and it pretty much standard blog/social media ToS with the only major thing is change of service to Russia.

Regarding sexual content the word obscene or pornographic usually refer to real life pornographic materials (like human being).

Also regarding the "translated agreement not legally binding", for someone who live in a country that uses many languages for contract this is quiet common. The original language of which the contract is written in is the one the party involves will be bound to. This is to avoid conflict in cases where there are discrepancies.

There's always commotion whenever users were ask to agreed to new agreement. I've seen this multiple times before Deviantart, Facebook, Tumblr, Artsy, mobile apps. This usually stem from misunderstanding (legal stuff is always convolated) and sometime because the user don't even know the original ToS that they agreed to when they created the account and sometime is simply because the ToS is just not agreeable.

LJ has made changes to the ToS from time to time but no new agreement require which I guessed because of prior changes were made by the same company when we first created the account with. So the transfer of service will require new agreement with the new company.

Please anyone enlighten me, I don't want to get screwed over because I'm missing something important in the ToS.

p/s: If thing really goes downhill I have Dreamwidth account with same name which I opened way back in 2012. Used to crosspost to here but picture didn't carry over so I stopped but I guess now time to crosspost again.

Crunchyroll’s reduced premium video quality is either deliberate cost-cutting or catastrophic incompetence

Spoiler, not because of incompetence.

CR plans, what theorized:
1. lower quality video
2. less bandwidth used
3. less money spent on bandwidth
4. more profit

After all the ruse their paid subscriber raised, they're now use back the old quality video for simulcast anime for 48hrs before reverting back to the new low quality video. All their other videos (existing ones) are in the new low quality encode.

People made joke about this on twitter, link here for context.



p/s: to say "new" and then "low quality" is an irony.

Well I expected this but not really like this. Just after things are looking good to them they got sour really fast.




I would take it better if he dies at the end, after they accomplished their goal. I thought they gonna kill him off at the very end and let him enjoy "the place where they belong" just for a split second before he died.

Also the luck and the bias of screen writer on the bad guys is way too apparent, the bad guys escape major death twice by absolute chance and not to mention survive scot-free after got blown by bomb, stabbed by giant sword (this happen way too many times) and literally survive after becoming vegetable. We in the fandom call this screen writer's plot armor.

The screen wrtier of this series is a sadist and that make us masochist lol. She make the death of Spike Siegel and Nanashi (Sword of Stangers) looks better.

Honestly I don't think I'm ready to see real life human being doing Jojo pose on the big screen. I may or may not going to puke a little in my mouth because of it.











or this




I wanted to read the manga because it looks cool but the number of volumes overwhelmed me and that's not including all the spin offs (by the author himself). I really do want to read it someday.



I end my post with a pose.

Warning spoiler, spoiler everywhere.

FYI generally in war theme story regradless on which media I'm pretty open about tragedy and character death whomever they might be because war by nature is pretty much a death pit and vortex for tragedies.


But IBO you hurt me (emotionally), tears were shed, the anticipation frustrates me (ten fold for someone like me who couldn't stand cliff hanger), the death flag gnawing at the back of my mind as to whether it'll comes true YET I can't stop watching.

Honestly I think the build up tragedy is what really got to me.

E40 Naze and Amina death


E41 Lafter death


E43 MacGillis back story  (Izanio you creepy child-predator sadistic asshole)




E45 Shino death (did not expect this) and possible Orga death flag.

Orga asking Mika to be vanguard to their head-on mission
Mika: Anything you order me to do.
Orga: This will be my last request.

Me: Not cool Orga, not cool. Don't say that!

My epiphany about mobile game started last year when Konami vs Kojima was a hot topic.

Youtube video for more info
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iMK-kajdgMA
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0nwPPYkd8gs

Tl:dr Konami wanted Kojima out, not in a good way.

One of the reason of Konami action was because they wanted to focus on Mobile and gambling game. At the time I was not aware the mobile game economy until I started playing Final Fantasy Brave Exvius a gatcha-mobile game which literally is mobile and gambling game in a way. It is not necessary to spend money to play but if you want the good stuff and be top of the pack money is everything. If you're not willing to spend and still want to be on top of the pack better bring out your lucky charm, horse shoe and rabbit foot because you a huge amount of luck on your side.

Even knowing this my ignorance or innocent which ever you prefer to call still believe that people couldn't possibly spend thousands on intangible stuff that will be always be replace by a new better intangible stuff. Well that was until I see this guy video,

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t6MDhBywDhY
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Cxk7XbRvWU

He spend more than USD 8000 on this game and this game is only about 6 months old.

He is one of many in the game, there are many other semi casual player who spend not that much but still a considerable amount.

I keep forgetting to post about this but when hoshi_kuzuu posted dropping project licensed by Renta it all coming back.

Actually I found out about it from a thread on Mangaupdates when people discussing english releases by Renta. I was made aware that Renta is merely an ebook site just like its Japanese counterpart.

(MU thread https://www.mangaupdates.com/showtopic.php?tid=51584, there are other similar thread just search through the forum.)

Summary

-What about all those titles that only avaiable on Renta?
They just have the exclusive release of it just like some of CR titles (less and less title exclusive to CR these days Comixology has bunch of the same titles available).

-So who is the real publisher?
The real publisher is whoever Renta listed as publisher (seriously, they never credited themselves as publisher).


-Proof that the credited publisher is the real publisher.
Here one of em https://www.futurecomics.com/en/. They also serve manga by other publishers like those licensed by DMP and Harlequin which publishes Harlequin manga.

Many people are not aware of this, if you look at MU there are many title listed as licensed by Renta even when on the cover there's obvious DMG or June logo on it. I also noticed that they mainly cater to not mainstream manga. They used to have quite a sum of shounen titles but not as many anymore especially they literally re-brand themselves as "Renta! is The Official Romance-manga Site".



Mainstream manga publishers like Kodansha & Kodakawa seems to either avoid or just prefer some better ebook sites like cd japan, amazon kindle, comixology etc. Well, they are big time publishers and many has their own exclusive ebook site for example Kodakawa Book Walker (paid content), Comic Walker (free content).

Although if I put on my conspiracy theory hat on, it was because Renta service; their ebook reader and their ebook quality is pretty bad. The reader sometimes just stop working and you have to close and re-open from the beginning and the image quality is grainy and it grating on you when you read. At the bright side the typesetting and font choice for their exclusive titles has improve in their newer releases (older releases can't be help).

I watched this movie...

I'm not the one paying for the ticket so I guess I can still claim that this movie does not profit from my money.

2 warnings to anyone on planning watching this movie.
1) It's really gross, personal grossness level may differ between individuals.
2) Prepare your ears, the jump scare music perhaps a little too loud.

Something is off somewhere, I cannot pin point where exactly but I feel like something is definitely off.

Side story

On new year's holiday, my family and I binged watch FMA:Brotherhood anime. When we got to the part when Bradley asked Riza if she knows who he is he mentioned that in his life all the choices was made for him except his wife, he chose his own wife.

It was then occur to me with the current trend of manga getting sequel/prequel/spinoff on each side character, if there is one about how Bradley chooses his wife I would read that. However I probably fancy something like extra chapter like DB Future Trunks story than entire vols or multivols.

I maintain my belief that side character should remain side character because they are not very well fleshed out and attempt on one usually ends up with continuity error. Also, if what happen to the side characters is so important it should be apart of the main story telling for coherent plot.

The most destructive relationship of two protagonist in Gundam history, they bring the worst out of each other.

Someone needs to do an intervention, probably too late but still...


The worst part of this week ep is this (I probably the only one who feels that way though...)



This scene I was like "oh, god please no. Just no!".
Atra heel, heel! How did you make that conclusion? Why does a baby will make everything better? I find it quite the opposite considering how much Mika wants to protect those that around him.

I honestly from the beginning couldn't quite grasp why Atra ship Mika and Kudelia so much, Mika pretty much acts the same towards everyone (except Orga). It was Kudelia who showed interest in Mika and suddenly she backs off thinking she doesn't stand a change winning Mika's heart agaisnt Kudelia.

Also imagining Mika suddently interested in sex is quite difficult since so far his priority are these: Eat>Barbatos>Orga's vision>the rest of the world.

Thinking about the future of this series regarding this "baby" brings me back to my bad memory in anime Blood+ when Diva raped Riku and in manga Loveless when Soubi lost his ears. In story setting not centered in romance (i.e not porno or romance) sex among minor and especially sex with minor disturb me, very.

Main casts in their costume.

The man that plays Shinpachi was Phillip one half of Kamen Rider W. He's quite popular now apparently, he stars in Death Note too.





The adaption on the looks (hair color, eyes, costumes) pretty decent. Unfortunately I don't get Ginpachi vibe from Shun.


p/s: Anyone watch Death Note new live action film? Is it any good? I hate the first 2 films.

Sanji and siblings are test tube babies and they are all the same......in this aspect...



Reiju hasn't been tested yet, probably have to wait for Zoro.

Mogcakes

kiggy007: (dead tired)
I recently (exactly one month) play Final Fantasy Brave Evius and got myself too immersed into their event Festival of the Autumn Moon. It was my first event too.

Since the event started on the 1st Sept I have been doing nothing in my free time but farming ingredient for Mogcake and crafting Mogcake. I even set-up alarm to when my Mogcake would finish crafting so I can craft a new batch.

I'm proud (or not) to announce that I completed the event, I got all the items I wanted to get and more and yet still have plenty of Mogcake and ingredient left over with 4 more crafting days to go.



New event is coming up and according to other player the new event it won't be as intense. It was also mentioned that the Autumn Moon event is the most intense/hardest event so far. Also I dunno if I can commit to another event so soon, I'm still recovering from the Mogcake event frenzy. When you life is molded to cater for a HP game's event I think that is when you should take a step back for a little while.

Bleach has finally ended after 15 years.
What follow to that ending is a LIVE-ACTION ADAPTATION FILM. My reaction to this news was "Japan pls just stop with this live-action adaptation".

Here is the guy that'll be playing Ichigo. I had to google him because to find out that he was Kamen Rider Fourze (didn't watch that series it was one of the awful ones) no wonder he looked fimiliar.



Back to the manga, I havent read Bleach for a very long time that I even forgot where I stopped. Although I skimmed read sometimes whenever my sister told me some important plot developement but I'm still way out of touch. So I need some help here, dead people can have children now? I mean Ichigo's dad was a Shinigami but his mom was a human so I kinda allow myself to believe that one alive parent is require to create babies but Renji and Rukia are both dead...so...the dead can self populate soul society? If yes the children of both dead parent is alive or dead?

Also, what exactly is the ending because weren't they were just in the middle of a fight and suddently time skip?

I have so many questions?

p/s: I probably should use the word "soul" rather than "dead" because it seems like I'm talking about zombies but you get the idea.
kiggy007: (happy)
It's kinda odd to have the sub-title after the main title. Shouldn't it be like Final Fantasy XV: Kingsglaive?



Hear yee hear yee!
Everyone, I implore you to watch this movie. I, myself have watched it twice in a row.

Made by the same team as FF:AC and everything has improved a lot. The fight scene at the end still a little too fast and everywhere.
It's a good start to get people hype on the game, but unfortunately the hype probably be hampered by Square Enix themselves since they delayed the release date of the game again... Well there were rumours that this game is not anywhere near "complete" so I guess the delay probably a good thing. Releasing a game full of bugs probably will make people even more mad than a delay.

Well, this is a very emotional chapter and probably my favourite one. I expected Ishiyama to down play the options but he manages to lay it all out.

When I read the previous chapter I'm began to weigh which one the humanity needs right now. Armin has showed great potential to as good strategist and with experience and grooming he can be a great leader. Erwin on the other hand is respectable brilliant man with experience, leadership and charisma.

I feel for Eren and Mikasa in their effort to save their friend but if I was in Levi shoes and view the options solely based on objective I would've choosen Erwin which Hanji and other senior soldiers agreed, they are in desperate time and in desperately need for good leadership right at this moment which is enough reason to lose a highly potential individual for future.

Honestly before reading this chapter I was ready to accept either one of them to die despite me being Armin bias. I'm happy that Armin get second chance but I'm still sad for Erwin, at least he gets to go out nicely (not get eaten and puke back out by titan like many other soldiers and still bodily intact) and from previous chapter 80 this war against titan slowly strips him out of his self-preservation and probably also his sanity.

RIP Erwin.






Bertolt is also dead now (?) Armin ate him. Can Bertolt regenerate after the his head got crushed between molar, if he can he might still be alive somewhere in the waste of Armin's titan body.

I don't feel much for him because I though that he always disturbing humanity progress with his lack of resolve.

Well, first impression on my PC. We already using Win10 on our entertainment PC since it early introduction because that PC came with Win8 and it sucks bad campared to Win10.

July hasn't been very good for me and mostly because of Win10.

I upgraded my PC to Win10 and it took out one of my hard disk, spends weeks trying to salvage the disk and no avail. Because of my unsuccessful attempt for salvation I decided to just get a new one and when surveying for current market price I found out that the price is 25% more than when I bought my old drive. Since I'm in the it can't be help situation and my PC really need a replacement I went out to buy anyway and again my luck ran out 2T drive is completely out of stock from manufacturer so here I am using my PC in degrade state.



I've taken every percaution when I decided to upgrade my PC to Win10. I decided to do it because I want to lock my license for free Win10 and I'm planning to roll back to Win7 after the major Win10 update on Aug 2nd. I made back up and stuff and check my PC compatibility, if only (if freaking only) microsoft actually explicitly stated that Win10 upgrade will destroy RAID, the entire predicament I'm facing now could have been avoided. Honestly now I feel like emailing microsoft "Please pay for my destroyed HDD, thank you".
