    DanMachi season 3 was announced.

    Psycho-Pass 3 was confirmed to be 8 1-hour long episodes.

    Fire Force episode 12 won't air till 10/11 due to special programming.

      Also got A Certain Scientific Railgun T (AKA Season 3) confirmed for January 2020. 

      Fire Force delayed but got a new Key Visual if you like those. https://www.funimation.com/blog/2019/09/27/fire-force-new-key-visual-art-fall-2019-anime-funimation/

      And the SAO Premiere at NYCC is confirmed to be Subbed. https://twitter.com/AnimeFestNYCC/status/1177284871837949952


      Bummed about the last one, since US Location/Dub VA at Event, I assumed it was going to be Dubbed. Which I also hoped was a sign that the Dub broadcast wouldn't be far behind Sub.

      C here too Pollux. I already own 2 of the games in A, not interested in anything in B, so C was the obvious choice with the upcoming DMC5 and God Eater 3.

      Fancy me I just completed reading this manga today and it was awesome. Hero is strong willed and characterization is excellent. Easily takes my top 5 manga. I hope anime can make justice to it.

      @Scyrous Manga is awesome. Why not give it a try you definitely won't regret it.

      Nah, if you have something to discuss with me, discuss it with me rather than going through the grapevine of staff who'd then have to come to me (stuff gets misinterpreted when middle-men so to speak are involved in relaying messages. I don't mind when potential issues are brought up, I guess I just don't see what the issue was here, what kind of answer you hoped for, or what you hoped to achieve from it.

       

      Maybe it stems from the fact it started with a lame joke among friends. Maybe it's cause I speak with you almost every day, so the method of which this transpired (status updates) was kind of an odd way to address a concern you have with the community. Discussing it in live chat, or in more public of places (like the assistance board) would have allowed for much more active responses and more community input into the matter.

       

      I find it odd that you'd compare Reddit to Kametsu (funny my auto-correct keeps wanting to change Kametsu to Kamehameha)  and expect some kind of similar thing. To me it's like comparing apples and broccoli, or comparing a big team of staff at a AAA Game Studio to a small indie game studio made up of 3 people. Obviously a huge business will likely be held to higher standards and business protocol than a fan-group of people who just share a similar hobby. The basis of the comparison was also of totally different things in my eyes; one was modifying or silencing a political party on a huge base where no one really knows anyone or are close friends, the other was an insider joke among friends in a tight-knit rather small in comparison community.

       

      If it's solely about what sort of bad things COULD happen in the same vein... Well you shouldn't fear that, and if it ever became an issue, bring it up at that time, rather than taking issue with a joke. To me your concern seems to be about potential issues that I wouldn't allow to happen, nor would most of our staff be willing to put up with. I'm not running this site as a hobby to go around pissing off friends by modifying posts to change opinions or speak for them through their account. But yeah, when people voice concerns about this potentially being an issue, it's practically the same thing as saying they don't trust me not to abuse whatever abilities I may have. So in a way, it does come off as sort of an attack against my character, whether intended or not. The simple question to any of these concerns is... Do you trust that I can be responsible enough to not abuse my authority? If the answer is no, then there isn't anything to talk about and there wouldn't be any reason to stick around. If the answer is yes, then there is nothing to worry about.

       

      The only "agenda" in this ordeal was boredom and a bad attempt at getting some people to smile. I wasn't trying to force a different opinion, I didn't re-write posts to any degree (simply inserted two words that didn't change the contents meaning besides the addition of a o.O joke). Some of the parties involved found it humorous, but obviously you did not. Unfortunately with anything there will always the "that one" that takes issue. Are you wrong for taking issue? No, I just didn't see things from your pov to understand why you felt there was an issue or what kind of result or answer you hoped would come of it. I honestly do feel however that some people simply take every aspect of anything far too seriously and sometimes we just need to take a breath and chill. Not everything has to be professional and devoid of any emotion. I'm not faulting anyone here. Mainly the biggest issue, as always, is simply a miscommunication/misinterpretation or lack-thereof.

      First when I saw the post I thought it was release list, didn't know it was watch list. OMG it really is big list. I commte very long, so ntg better to do I hang out on forums and watch anime. At that time I watch ongoings. If I get some time after reaching home I try to clear the pending list. I have some title which I downloaded 3 years and didn't even open the folder. I take it nice and slow to complete them.

  20. Fall Season Native Resolution list is a work in progress: https://tofincayra.wordpress.com/anime-related/2018-fall-anime-series-native-resolution/

      Probably because lower resolution anime require less work. With 1080p, backgrounds need to be a lot more detailed (unless blurring them ofc, but that's only a small portion of scenes). As for line-art, not too sure. I suppose you can be more precise at 1080p but line-art is rarely ever that detailed. 🤔

       

      Edit: also, I'm almost certain the native res for Goblin Slayer will be 720p, based on previous shows from White Fox

      >thinking anibin is correct

      Thinking that its possible to guess original resolution of an image that was filtered/adjusted, and who knows what else, is like saying 4:2:0->4:4:4 restores the original frame. 🤣

    4. Koby

      Koby

      Nah, I'm fully aware that anibin isn't always right, but it is a pretty decent estimate a lot of the time and it's better than just outright believing everything is native 1080p. Some fansubbers use some bot in Discord to determine native res from a screenshot lol, but that also typically comes close to agreeing with aniBin.

       

      Generally speaking, if anibin says it's higher than 720p, I'll just go ahead and encode the web releases to 1080p, if it says 720p or below I'll encode in 720p... but Blu-rays I go ahead and do 1080p for anyways. >_>

       

      In any event people who watch full-screen will be having their player upscale it if on higher res screens, so upscaling is going to happen regardless.

  21. Come on Crunchyroll... could you have made this line any worse?

      Hope for a dub then, Zero. Also, I believe this screenshot is taken out of context. It does look weird out of context, but in light of the comments above, it would seem that there's a reason why Mai phrased it like that? I haven't watched the show, so I don't know.

      I didn't have a problem with Aniplex TL for this show they thankfully translated *onii-chan* to *big brother* instead of writing it as *onii-chan*.

       

      Speaking of the dub, i doubt that Aniplex is going to dub it they have better shows in mostly the same genre like the monogatari series,nisekoi,saikano and others and they didn't dub them so i think it will be the same case with this one, i could be wrong though who knows.

    4. Inverti

      Inverti

      I would like to give Aniplex the benefit of the doubt that they'll actually realize that most anime viewers nowadays would only be willing to pay that much for a BD set when a dub is included. Also, Aniplex has dubbed nicher shows in recent years, so hopefully that's a sign that they're gonna make more dubs.

       

      Regardless of the quality of the dub, it is an undeniable fact that dubs increase accessibility of the target audience.

       

      PS: It's *Saekano
