  2. Viz Media unveiled the first full trailer, a new visual, and the three main cast members for the Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon (Han'yō no Yasha Hime) anime sequel of Rumiko Takahashi's Inuyasha series on Thursday. The anime's official website and Japanese version of the trailer also revealed the anime's October 3 premiere date on the YTV/NTV network in Japan. The cast includes: Sara Matsumoto as Towa Higurashi, one of Sesshomaru's daughters and Setsuna's twin. Mikako Komatsu as Setsuna, one of Sesshomaru's daughters and Towa's twin. Azusa Tadokoro as Moroha, the daughter of Inuyasha and Kagome. Viz has the rights "to the digital streaming, EST, and home video" of the anime in North and Latin American territories. The company describes "the brand new anime from the Inuyasha universe": The daughters of Sesshomaru and Inuyasha set out on a journey transcending time! In Feudal Japan, Half-Demon twins Towa and Setsuna are separated from each other during a forest fire. While desperately searching for her younger sister, Towa wanders into a mysterious tunnel that sends her into present-day Japan, where she is found and raised by Kagome Higurashi's brother, Sota, and his family. Ten years later, the tunnel that connects the two eras has reopened, allowing Towa to be reunited with Setsuna, who is now a Demon Slayer working for Kohaku. But to Towa's shock, Setsuna appears to have lost all memories of her older sister. Joined by Moroha, the daughter of Inuyasha and Kagome, the three young women travel between the two eras on an adventure to regain their missing past. Teruo Sato (Inuyasha episode director) is directing the anime at Sunrise, and Katsuyuki Sumisawa is in charge of the series scripts after doing the same for Inuyasha and Mobile Suit Gundam Wing. Takahashi herself is credited as the main character designer, with Yoshihito Hishinuma (Yakitate!! Japan, City Hunter: Shinjuku Private Eyes) returning from Inuyasha to adapt her designs for animation. Kaoru Wada (3x3 Eyes, Battle Angel, The File of Young Kindaichi) is also back from Inuyasha to compose the music. Takahashi launched the original manga in Weekly Shonen Sunday in 1996, and ended it in 2008. Viz licensed and published all 56 volumes of the manga in North America. The 167-episode anime series based on the manga ran from 2000-2004. A 26-episode sequel anime titled InuYasha: The Final Act then ran from 2009-2010. The series has inspired four movies and a 30-minute anime short. Viz began releasing the anime on Blu-ray Disc last year.
  3. Every teenager that's ever done something stupid without thinking in the Gundam series. So basically all of them.
  4. I do! I keep all my old consoles for parties when there are guests to entertain. Nostalgia does wonders.
  5. Something Like Summer by Jay Bell.
  6. Jedi: Fallen Order. I did not expect to like it, and I hate fighting games.
  7. 600 years ago, the Japanese placed ancient stone markers along the coastline to warn future generations not to build there due to risk of tsunamis. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/ancient-stone-markers-warned-of-tsunamis/
  8. If it's a show I'm super invested in, then yes. If it's a new show that I'm on the fence about, then I'll play it on my iPad under my computer while doing computer work. If I'm distracted from working then it's a show I need to start watching, if not then at least I got work done.
  9. I have a system for shows like that; where I'm on the fence about whether or not to watch it. If you're ever doing computer work, put the show on your phone and right under the monitor, and let it play. Just listen and look at it occasionally while doing work as usual. If the show captivates you then you'll keep watching. If it doesn't captivate you, then you'll have completely ignored it. It's non-invasive either way, and at least you've got some nice background noise to work against.
  10. I binged seasons 1-4 of the Expanse and DAMN! It was such a journey! I really hope season 5 keeps up the energy.
  11. 12 Angry Men. I finally understand all the references to it in Family Guy.
  12. I really hope Blood Origin is released in its complete form vs one at a time. It really killed me having to wait each week to watch something; it's like cable/dish never left lol
  13. Thanks for having me @Koby! I've found myself with a lot of free time recently so here I am lol

    Edge of Eternity

    New Dynamic Events We are improving on the Dynamic Events system in Edge Of Eternity. While this feature had been implemented since alpha release, we wanted to expand it to new areas and make the map more lively. You can now encounter over a dozen new events when exploring the Herelsor and Solna plains. Key locations Dynamic Events will start around 3 different type of places: Marketplaces from Herelsor and Solna plains Stonehenges from Herelsor and Solna plains Arena next to the Lighthouse on Solna plain Many events will take place in those exact locations, but some can occur within a 500 meters radius, or get in your way directly. Those quests will change over time so you won't get the same objective twice in the same place: for example if you have to look for a certain treasure chest, the next occurrence may not be in the same area.
  16. Final Fantasy Type 0 HD stream will begin between 5-5:15 p.m. EST. Endgame spoilers. Keep that in mind if you come. You've been warned. https://www.twitch.tv/megachamp89

  17. Fact of the Day - HISTORICAL FIGURES Did you know... that history is defined by people and their actions. The following historical figures have ultimately helped to change the course of history, influencing electricity, politics, religion, and scientific discoveries.Yet, their lives or deaths may have taken rather bizarre turns. Although these are not the accomplishments for which these people are ultimately remembered, here are 10 strange facts about historical figures. Albert Einstein’s Cubed Brain Albert Einstein, a theoretical physicist, took his last breath at 1:15 AM on April 18, 1955. Unfortunately, his final words were lost forever as the nurse at Princeton Hospital did not speak German. Later that day, Einstein’s cremation was held in Trenton, New Jersey. Sadly, his son, Hans Albert, discovered that his father’s body had not been intact prior to his cremation. Dr. Thomas Harvey, the pathologist who performed the autopsy, investigated Einstein’s body to discover more than just his cause of death, which was a burst aorta. As he may have hoped to make a name for himself in medicine, Harvey chose to saw open Einstein’s cranium before removing his brain. In 1978, Steven Levy, a budding reporter, met with Harvey and learned what had happened to the organ. After much convincing, Harvey pulled out Einstein’s brain, which was not only pickled but sliced into 240 cubes. The brain had remained in a box marked “Costa Cider” for 20 years. Sir Walter Raleigh’s Decapitated Head Born: 22 January 1552 (or 1554) Hayes Barton, East Budleigh, Devon, England Died : 29 October 1618 (aged c. 65) London, England Sir Walter Raleigh was an English adventurer and writer and one of the most notable figures during the Elizabethan era. Despite being a favorite courtier of Queen Elizabeth I, who died in 1603, he was beheaded in 1618 for conspiring against King James I. His decapitated head was embalmed and presented to his wife, Elizabeth, who was one of the queen’s ladies-in-waiting. As she could not bear to be apart from her husband, Lady Raleigh is believed to have kept his decapitated head in her red leather bag for 29 years. His head was later returned to his tomb at St. Margaret’s Church. King Henry VIII’s Grooms Of The Stool King Henry VIII of England appointed four Grooms of the Stool, who were responsible for wiping his bottom during his reign. His grooms were Sir William Compton (1509–1526), Sir Henry Norris (1526–1536), Sir Thomas Heneage (1536–1546), and Sir Anthony Denny (1546–1547). Each groom was knighted. The official title of the role was the “Groom of the King’s Close Stool.” These men were responsible for attending to the monarch’s toilet needs, but they also supplied water, a washbowl, and a towel for the king. They monitored King Henry VIII’s diet and mealtimes to predict his needs. The Grooms of the Stool were the king’s most intimate courtiers and would often be privy to his closely guarded secrets as a result of the job. The position became more important throughout the decades because a Groom of the Stool was viewed as an influential man due to his close proximity to the king. Therefore, many people attempted to speak to the groom to pass important matters on to the monarch. King Henry VIII also shared his personal thoughts with the Grooms of the Stool. Each was given lodgings where the king chose to reside and received his old clothing and furniture. Thomas Edison’s Last Breath Thomas Edison has been deemed America’s greatest inventor by many as he was responsible for the motion picture camera, phonograph, and a long-lasting, electric light bulb, to name just a few. His innovations undoubtedly inspired Henry Ford, the founder of Ford Motor Company, who worked for Edison Illuminating Company in 1896. Ford’s dream came true when he was able to meet Thomas Edison and explain his new automobile to the inventor, who was impressed by his idea. His words ultimately inspired Ford to create a prototype of the Model T. The two men also shared a friendship throughout Edison’s life. Sadly, Edison died of complications from diabetes in 1931 at his home in West Orange, New Jersey. After sharing a great friendship with the inventor, Ford supposedly convinced Edison’s son, Charles, to hold a test tube to Edison’s mouth to catch his last breath. Many believe that the eccentric Ford was trying to capture Thomas Edison’s soul as it escaped his body. However, it might be easier to believe the story that eight test tubes were located near Edison’s bed as he died and his son sent one to Henry Ford. Either way, the last breath is on display at The Henry Ford Museum in Detroit. King George III’s Blue Urine In addition to his so-called erratic behavior, King George III will always be known to the British as the king who lost America. It was known that the king was prone to repeating himself, and he would often talk until foam ran out of his mouth. Yet, one of the strangest facts about King George III is that he supposedly had blue urine. He was posthumously diagnosed with acute intermittent porphyria, which is a genetic blood disorder. The condition would have been the cause of his mania and strange-colored urine. Galileo’s Three Fingers And Tooth Galileo Galilei was an Italian astronomer who famously heard of the construction of the telescope and developed a superior version without seeing the initial example. As a result, he made many astronomical discoveries throughout his lifetime, including the mountains and valleys on the Moon’s surface and the phases of the planet Venus. The notable inventor died at age 77 on January 8, 1642. Weirdly, before he was buried, three of his fingers and a tooth were removed from his body by his admirers. The body parts are now on display at the Museo Galileo in Florence, Italy. Click the link below if you are interested in reading about the next 4 Historical Figures.

  18. What's the Word? - FICKLE pronunciation: [FIH-kəl] Part of speech: adjective Origin: Old English, 13th century Meaning: 1. Changing frequently, especially as regards one's loyalties or affections. Example: "'Fame is a fickle friend, Harry.' —Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" "I'm just too fickle — I can't decide what I want for dinner." About Fickle In Old English, the original spelling was "fickol," with Germanic roots. The meaning of changeable and capricious is the modern definition, not necessarily with malicious intent. The original definition of "fickol" was "deceitful." Did you know? The alliterative idiom "fickle fortune" can be traced back to Shakespeare. In "Romeo and Juliet," Juliet cries, "O fortune, fortune! All men call thee fickle." Fate remains a fickle friend.

  25. Fact of the Day - TENNIS Did you know... that Tennis is a racket sport that can be played individually against a single opponent (singles) or between two teams of two players each (doubles). Each player uses a tennis racket that is strung with cord to strike a hollow rubber ball covered with felt over or around a net and into the opponent's court. The object of the game is to maneuver the ball in such a way that the opponent is not able to play a valid return. The player who is unable to return the ball will not gain a point, while the opposite player will. (Wikipedia) Games using some form of ball and racquet have been played in numerous civilizations dating back as far as Neolithic times. Ruins in Mesoamerica indicate a particularly important place for ball games in several cultures. There's also evidence that ancient Greeks, Romans, and Egyptians played some version of a game that resembled tennis. However, court tennis—also called "real tennis" and "royal tennis" in Great Britain and Australia—owes its beginnings to a game enjoyed by French monks that can be traced back to the 11th century. Lawn and Real Tennis The Beginnings of Modern Tennis Monks played the French game of paume (meaning "palm") on a court. Rather than a racquet, the ball was struck with the hand. Paume eventually evolved into jeu de paume ("game of the palm") in which racquets were used. By the year 1500, racquets constructed of wood frames and gut strings had been developed, as well as balls made of cork and leather, and by the time the game spread to England—where both Henry VII and Henry VIII were big fans—there were as many as 1,800 indoor courts. Even with its growing popularity, tennis in the days of Henry VIII was a very different sport from today's version of the game. Played exclusively indoors, the game consisted of hitting a ball into a netted opening in the roof of a long, narrow tennis house. The net was five feet high at each end and three feet high in the center. The Tudors Henry VIII - Sports, Real Tennis (Click link and listen to video) Outdoor Tennis By the 1700s, the game's popularity had seriously dwindled but that changed dramatically with the invention of vulcanized rubber in 1850. The new hard rubber balls revolutionized the sport, making it possible for tennis to be adapted to an outdoor game played on grass. In 1873, Londoner Major Walter Wingfield invented a game called he called Sphairistikè (Greek for "playing ball"). Played on an hourglass-shaped court, Wingfield's game created a sensation in Europe, the United States, and even China, and is the source from which tennis as we know it today eventually evolved. When the game was adopted by croquet clubs that had acres of manicured lawns, the hourglass shape gave way to a longer, rectangular court. In 1877, the former All England Croquet Club held its first tennis tournament at Wimbledon. The rules of this tournament set the standard for tennis as it's played today—with some notable differences: service was exclusively underhand and women were not allowed to play in the tournament until 1884. 1884 Maud Watson was the very first champion in the first Wimbledon Championships for Ladies. Tennis Scoring No one is sure where tennis scoring—love, 15, 30, 40, deuce—came from, but most sources agree it originated in France. One theory for the origin of the 60-point system is that it's simply based on the number 60, which had positive connotations in medieval numerology. The 60 was then divided into four segments. The more popular explanation is that the scoring was invented to match the face of a clock with the score given in quarter-hours: 15, 30, 45 (shortened to the French for 40 quarante, rather than the longer quarante cinq for 45). It wasn't necessary to use 60 because reaching the hour meant the game was over anyway—unless it was tied at "deuce." That term may have derived from the French deux, or "two," indicating that from then on, two points were required to win the match. Some say the term "love" comes from the French word l'oeuf, or "egg," a symbol for "nothing," like a goose egg. The Evolution of Tennis Attire Perhaps the most conspicuous way tennis has evolved has do do with the game's attire. At the end of the19th century, male players wore hats and ties, while pioneering women wore a version of street clothing that actually included corsets and bustles. A strict dress code was adopted by the 1890s that decreed tennis wear must be exclusively white in color (with the exception of some accent trim, and even that had to conform with stringent guidelines). 1920 Tennis Men's Apparel From Corsets to Culottes Women's Tennis Apparel The tradition of tennis whites lasted well into the 20th century. Initially, the game of tennis was for the rich. White clothing, although practical because it tends to be cooler, had to be vigorously laundered, and so it wasn't really a viable option for most working-class people. The advent of modern technology, especially the washing machine, made the game more accessible to the middle class. By the swinging ’60s, as societal rules relaxed—nowhere more so than in the realm of fashion—more and more colorful clothing began to make its way onto tennis courts. There remain some places, such as Wimbledon, where tennis whites are still required for play. Source: ThoughtCo. | Wikipedia - Tennis | Wikipedia - History of Tennis
  26. What's the Word? - GRABBLE pronunciation: [GRA-bəl] Part of speech: verb Origin: Dutch, late 16th century Meaning: 1. Feel or search with the hands; grope about. 2. Sprawl or tumble on all fours. Example: "I had to grabble for the books hidden on the top shelf." "Move that broom before someone trips and grabbles." About Grabble If you trip on a chair leg and take a tumble, don't feel embarrassed, just call it a grabble. You can use a new vocabulary word to describe sprawling on all fours. This has evolved from its original meaning of reaching about for an object. Did you know? We get the word "grab" from Middle Dutch and German, also the origin of similar words grip and grope. Grabble was originally from the Dutch word "grabbelen," meaning to scramble for a thing.
