    Gundam Wing: Operation Meteor?

    https://www.rightstufanime.com/Mobile-Suit-Gundam-Wing-Endless-Waltz-Blu-Ray You're welcome!
  4. I'm hoping it'll look like Dragon Quest XI does during cutscenes, but I'm extremely doubtful. Apparently this movie is also based around the DQ5 world and characters from my understanding?
  5. A 3DCG anime movie based on the popular Dragon Quest JRPG game series was announced via NTV's News Program News Zero on Wednesday. Titled Dragon Quest: Your Story, the movie will premiere on Japanese theaters on August 2. There is no specific information, but Yuuji Horii, a game designer who is also doing story and supervision to the game series, will also participate in the production. More information will be revealed at a later date. Staff Chief Director, Script: Takashi Yamazaki (BUMP OF CHICKEN Music Video director) Director: Ryuuichi Yagi (Stand By Me Doraemon director), Makoto Hanabusa (Stand By Me Doraemon art director) Music: Koichi Sugiyama (Dragon Quest: Dai no Daibouken (TV)) Dragon Quest series was launched by Square Enix in May of 1986. Currently there are 11 main numbered games and multiple spin-offs. Since the first game, the franchise has sold over 78 million copies combined. Several manga series were written and among those the Dragon Quest: Dai no Daibouken manga received several anime adaptations by Toei Animation. A movie in July 1991, 46-episode TV anime series that aired in the Fall of 1991, and four more movies between 1991 to 1996. Visit the official website here and Twitter account here.
  6. GOD EATER was awesome. Probably their best work aside from Heaven's Feel at this point animation wise. Still sad we haven't had a second season announcement. ufotable is busy with all the cutscenes for the GOD EATER games though still.
  7. "Whenever happiness is destroyed, there's always the smell of blood." Enter the realm of the demons as Demon Slayer premieres April 2019! Don't miss this melancholy tale of humans and demons, bloodcurdling swordfights and comical characters from studio ufotable and based on the popular manga by Koyoharu Gotouge serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump magazine. Synopsis: It is the Taisho Period in Japan. Tanjiro, a kindhearted boy who sells charcoal for a living, finds his family slaughtered by a demon. To make matters worse, his younger sister Nezuko, the sole survivor, has been transformed into a demon herself. Though devastated by this grim reality, Tanjiro resolves to become a “demon slayer” so that he can turn his sister back into a human, and kill the demon that massacred his family. A sorrowful tale of siblings in which the fates of humans and demons intertwine…begins now!

    Last Live-Action Movie you Watched?

    So Alita: Battle Angel [2019] was actually pretty good. Only a few small differences between the anime OVA and the movie and imo the added scenes were definitely for the better as the OVA felt very choppy and rushed, while the movie worked. There was a little bit in the 2nd quarter of the film that kind of dragged for a moment, but it picked back up and overall we liked it. If you thought the "love story" was bad in the live-action, you should have seen it in the original anime OVA. The movie at least tried to build it somewhat.
  9. I went to the movies and watched Live Free or Die Hard.. Wait erm, I went to the movies since then and watched Rush Hour 3.
  10. Disney film production chief Sean Bailey’s effort to retool and relaunch the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise is back in uncertain waters after the defection of Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick, the hot-shot writing team behind Fox’s mighty Deadpool franchise. Disney insiders say Reese & Wernick are no longer working on a sixth installment in the swashbuckler series that has grossed $4.5 billion in worldwide box office and $2.5 billion more in global merchandise since it first set sail in 2003. The films have all been built around Johnny Depp’s antics as the bleary buccaneer Jack Sparrow, but the actor’s recent travails and steep salary prompted Bailey to consider a new course for Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures and its flagship brand. Bailey’s new direction began with the October hiring of Reese & Wernick, who are viewed as tone-savvy specialists in subversive action comedy after the success of the Deadpool series (which has posted the two largest opening weekends by R-rated films in Hollywood history) and Sony’s Zombieland (which celebrates its 10th anniversary with a sequel this October). The hiring was widely hailed and Bailey has been vocal in his excitement about it, telling reporters and colleagues that the scribes were going to “make Pirates punk rock again” and give the franchise a much-needed “kick in the pants” that would revive the off-kilter charisma the brand exuded in its early days. Those high hopes faded in recent weeks. Disney insiders are divided about what happens next. Some say a search is already underway for viable replacement options, others say the once-proud flagship of Disney’s live-action fleet may be headed to dry-dock for good. The glory days for the swashbuckler series were more than a decade ago. The franchise matched The Lord Of The Rings series by finishing back-to-back years with the No. 1 film in global box office (Dead Man’s Chest in 2006 and At World’s End in 2007), each taking in north of $950 million. The plunder has been more modest in recent years. The latest release was in 2017 with Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man Tell No Tales, a $230 million production that showed the brand’s international traction ($622 million in foreign markets) is far stronger than its domestic standing ($173 million). Interestingly, there has been some spitball discussions about revamping the property for a Pirates of the Caribbean television series, but the budgetary and logistical challenges of a seafaring series may be too daunting.

    Status Quo

    As you're likely aware by now, Kametsu has been forced to undergo changes in order to continue to exist and keep its staff members out of legal trouble. There was no other possibilities to be had. So please refrain from suggesting ways to get around the situation, and please do not attack the staff for the decisions made. What is done is done. No we will not be bringing back the content you're liking to be wondering/asking about. No we cannot access the content to back it up for you. No we cannot recommend other sites that participate in such activities. Please understand our situation. If you have any suggestions for the community going forward, we're all ears. We're looking for ways to breathe life into discussions, continue to draw new members in and keep them around actively participating in discussions, etc... To this regard we have many changes we plan to roll out within the coming month. One of which is usergroup levels in which you advance ranks based on various things such as account age, post count, and reputation points. This'll give you styled names in the online list as well as various perks such as larger Private Message box, access to other boards, less flood control on searches, ability to give out more rep points per day, custom titles, and more. We're also looking into having the occasional Steam key giveaway contests to and various gaming activities where hopefully we can get enough people together to play some online games together, stream gameplay, write reviews, give recommendations, etc. We're also looking for news writers to keep up with the latest news on television, movies, anime, toons, and games. I'm also pondering the idea of a points system with a shop for possible profile treats (just in the name of fun), and various other possibilities such as maybe the ability to pin a thread for a certain time, bump it, feature it, custom user style, or something. We had something like this years ago, so it may be fun to bring back provided such thing exists. Also, we're going to be looking for ways to cut costs of the community and ensure the community can better maintain itself. What this entails, I'm not sure at this point, but for now, if you'd like to continue to show your support for the community: donations are welcome as always and much appreciated. And if you have any further questions or suggestions be sure to voice them. Just please by courteous and realize this entire event has been extremely taxing and stressful and we've had to deal with hundreds of inquiries already across all social media platforms.
  12. Rage of Bahamut: Manaria Friends MAL Synopsis Mysteria Academy is a prestigious magic school that teaches magic without discrimination to the three factions (men, gods, demons), who usually are engaged in battle with each other. Two of the academy's students are Anne, a princess and honor student, and Grea, a princess born from a dragon and a human. (Source: ANN) Mobile game developer Cygames has opened an official website for a TV anime titled Shingeki no Bahamut: Manaria Friends, scheduled for 2016. It is an adaptation of a popular event, Manaria Mahou Gakuin (Manaria Magic Academy), within the Shingeki no Bahamut social game.

    Resident Evil 2 Remake

    No idea if more is planned or not, but the DLC doesn't affect the main game at all. It's separate side-missions you can do. So there is no reason to hold off playing the main game. The Ghost Survivors DLC is 3 campaigns about characters that canonically are dead and the scenario is a "what if they lived" type deal.

    Resident Evil 2 Remake

    Maybe I'm just terrible or maybe they're just nearly impossibly hard, but I've tried and tried dozens of times and haven't been able to complete any of the new "Ghost Survivor" DLC runs.
  15. ufotable is based. I also like WhiteFox and Wit Studio though to a much lesser extent. Not always because of their animation quality, but because of the shows they opt to do. ufotable on the other hand, their animation quality is always superb. Fate/UBW, Fate/HF, GOD EATER, Garden of Sinners (Kara no Kyoukai), and Tales of Zestiria.
  16. FF4, FF8, FF9, and FF10 were the most enjoyable in my opinion. FF4 is by far my favorite though. However popular opinion is that Final Fantasy 7 is the highest acclaimed and most known, yet long-time fans of the franchise generally claim that FF6 was the best of the franchise. In any case, with a series as big and old as FF there are bound to be a lot of differences in opinions. FF12 was the last game I enjoyed at all. FF11 & FF14 were both MMOs. FF13 & FF15 and all their spin-offs were garbage. FF7 is being remade from the ground up, though they're drastically changing things: removing turn-based for action-based, releasing the game in episodes instead of all-in-one, etc...
  17. You might think that a publisher with as much prestige as Square Enix would want to preserve its history in as smart a way as possible, allowing new generations of video game fans to discover and fall in love with Final Fantasy. But... nope. Final Fantasy IX launched on Switch and Xbox this week, and unsurprisingly yet still disappointing we discovered it was the same port that Square had put on PC and PS4, which itself was based on the versions the publisher developed for iOS and Android. The character models are higher-resolution than they were in the original, but that graphical improvement comes with some drawbacks. Final Fantasy IX on Switch retains that ugly interface and font (seen above) and has a few quirks that make it clear this was meant to be a mobile game, like warning you in the character naming screens that emoticons aren’t allowed. What’s irritated people most might be the music bug. All the modern versions of Final Fantasy IX have come with the same annoying flaw—after every battle, the field music track will start from the top. So if you run into battles every 10 seconds on the world map, you’ll only get to listen to the first 10 seconds of the world map theme—before it starts all over again. As pointed out by a ResetEra poster, this bug has been prevalent not just in previous ports of FFIX, but in other new Square Enix ports of Final Fantasy games. For Final Fantasy X, they patched it out. It’s a bug that’s not easy to notice, but once you do spot it, it’s impossible to stop hearing the problem. Even the good new features in this version of Final Fantasy IX are implemented in a frustrating way. For example, there’s a fast forward toggle in the console ports of Final Fantasy IX. Which is fantastic—the best way to play many of these old role-playing games in 2019 is to speed through the many, many random encounters. But rather than letting you fast forward combat at varying speeds with the press of a button, the way the excellent Final Fantasy XII remake does, this version of the game adds an extra step. To toggle fast-forward, you need to pause the game, then press R. It’ll make everything super-fast, not just combat, which essentially makes the game unplayable outside of battles. Then, to turn it back off, you need to pause the game again and press R again. That extra button press is more annoying than it seems. The game is also prone to randomly crashing, as is the case with nearly all of Square-Enix PC ports of the classic Final Fantasy games. Final Fantasy IX costs $21 on the Nintendo eShop, it should be noted. When Square Enix released Chrono Trigger for PC last year in horrible shape, fan outcry led the publisher to put out a series of patches that fixed many of the problems. Here’s hoping they can do the same this time around, because Switch users can’t just mod this into a good port. Source: Kotaku
  18. Resident Evil 2’s reimagining of the 1998 original leaned heavily into action, with revamped camerawork and gunplay. Its first batch of DLC, Ghost Survivors, focuses on untold stories and “what if” scenarios, and emphasizes intense zombie gauntlets over raw horror. Ghost Survivors, which is free, follows three protagonists: gun store owner Robert Kendo, Raccoon City mayor’s daughter Katherine Warren, and an unnamed Umbrella soldier. Each of their scenarios acts as a hypothetical. What would have happened if Katherine escaped from the clutches of evil police chief Brian Irons? What if there was another special forces soldier sent to retrieve virus samples? These scenarios are imagined as high octane time-attacks, pitting each survivor against a slew of enemies. The challenge is simple: get from point A to B. Ghost Survivors’ scenarios aren’t slow and tense survival-horror; they are fast-paced rushes through dense hordes and new foes. Each mission takes around 10 minutes to complete if you don’t die, but around twenty minutes first time with trial and error. Eventually, each run will be even shorter than that. You start armed with a few weapons and some ammo, but only enough to get you started. As you progress through each location, you’ll find item dispensers that might contain three different herbs (although you can only take one) as well as backpack-wearing zombies that carry extra supplies. The trick with Ghost Survivors is learning how to preserve what you have and knowing exactly what to take. It plays out with some trial and error. You’ll rush a little further into a scenario, reach a stumbling point, possibly die, and then try again from the start. Each new piece of knowledge gets you further and further until you can complete the level in one miraculous rush. Resident Evil 2’s changes to combat thrive here, forcing players to shoot specific foes out of a pack or find ways to get around massive throngs. You can’t kill everything. Instead, you’ll juke out attacks and blow off limbs to squeeze through by the skin of your teeth. It worked well as the format for the game’s “Fourth Survivor mode” and continues to work here. Each new success feels well earned. In order to vary each scenario, Ghost Survivors adds a few new enemies. There are glowing-eyed zombies that explode with poison gas upon defeat, armored zombies that shirk off attacks to critical areas, and strange “Pale Heads” that regenerate from everything but the most lethal of weaponry. They provide just enough complication to cause problems, but I might have liked more enemy variety in this case. The original Resident Evil 2 features giant spiders and a few other nasty tricks that didn’t make it into the remake, and this would have been a good opportunity to bring them back. Ghost Survivors is a very straightforward experience. There are zombies, you have some guns, now get to the end of the level. Resident Evil 2’s modernizations allow it to turn this simple concept into something bloody and exciting. It’s not as sublime as sneaking around and hiding from Mr. X in the main game, but Ghost Survivors can be a lot of fun. It’s a case of a game knowing what it does well and really playing around. Hardcore enthusiasts will enjoy trying to get the best times, while players eager for more zombie-blasting get to enjoy some of the best in the business. Source: Kotaku
