"The production of The Dreaming Machine is less a matter of funding & more one that there isn't someone to match Kon's talent. So far, nobody"

I'm pretty sure one of my friends knew him. I got to see Perfect Blue at the SF taikai with CHAM (yes really) standing right behind ^^!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_fort

The JSDF base in Gate #4. Appropriate for the enemy they're up against, I suppose. "Fortifications of this type continued to be effective while the attackers were armed only with cannon, where the majority of the damage inflicted was caused by momentum from the impact of solid shot. While only low explosives such as black powder were available, explosive shells were largely ineffective against such fortifications. The development of mortars, high explosives, and the consequent large increase in the destructive power of explosive shells and thus plunging fire rendered the intricate geometry of such fortifications irrelevant. Warfare was to become more mobile. It took, however, many years to abandon the old fortress thinking."

+Bunny Evans Erm, you care to read before replying?

An A10 isn't a fighter.

It got no guns for a dog fight at all. The only air defence are sidewinders placd at some of its 11 hardpoints - that part of the weapon array people tend to forget when they think about the A10.

Current Titles & Episodes  - 
 
This season we are blessed with three entertaining adventure series. And unfortunately they are adaptations, which means people can & will go to spoilertown. I find it more thought provoking not knowing what's over the horizon.

Gate will be the fan favorite I imagine.  The premise is fascinating and there is a lot to chew on, so much that I wish each episode was an hour long... And that I had the full set to binge on.

Japan finds itself in a strange political situation on both sides of the otherworldly portal; one for its exclusive access to an untamed and resource-rich continent, and for the other the god-like technological power it wields in the medieval world. There are many ways this scenario could go. The humorously nonchalant Lt. Itami reminds me of Patlabor's Captain Gotou. However, the refugees of war & dragons suddenly become a critical political asset, and their rescuer, Itami, may soon become a power player in the political game. If Japan's neighbors come knocking on their door hankering for a piece of oldschool colonialism, which side will Japan fall on? And the JSDF? And Lt. Itami?

Overlord depicts a man losing himself in his own power fantasy, succumbing to his demonic alter-ego. Will he ever return to his own body? Where does he end and his persona begin? Does the real world even matter anymore? If your own fantasy world beckoned from the beyond, would you resist? This tension gives Overlord a subversive edge that .hack//Sign & Sword Art Online lack.

Gakkou Gurashi! ("living at school" or, officially, "School-Live!") is kitsch to the max. You should watch the first episode cold right now if you haven't. It's a doozy.

The contrast of saccharine moe and post-apocalyptic survival is the kind of ridiculousness I come to anime for. I'm waiting for the next delicious bombshell, like, what's up with that sensei?

I'm sticking to the tv anime and will not be looking into other media for these shows. Like Sean said not knowing is more thought provoking.

This exists: an intentional ASMR TV series from Japan. I'm not saying it's great, but the premise is basically the same as all of those ASMR roleplay vids. It's a 1st-person TV series in which a veteran voice actor whispers sweet nothings to the audience to help them sleep.

New plan: kill the goalie. (Only my mic was recorded so it sounds like I'm talking to myself, lol.)

Wacky car-soccer game Rocket League feels more like a sport than most modern sports video games. My problem with the latter is they simulate the experience of television rather than the sport itself, with dynamics that are hard-coded rather than emerging from the physics of the game.

Rocket League is not quite pick-up-and-play, but it makes a lot more immediate sense than FIFA & Madden, and is far less contrived despite it being a game where you slam rocket-powered cars into an exploding ball.
