Feminine_Desires: So when I played Muse Dash, it had been the first rhythm game I had played in like, 10 years. I found it surprisingly easy. My only difficulty was being able to see the things coming at me, they aren't always distinct.

mtvcdm: That's Adam.
zazamost: Of course.
angryoptimist: It looks rather like they're driving a gourd to me.
Feminine_Desires: I love this game so much tothHeart
ContingentCat: do you rather two choices but the same result?
Feminine_Desires: I haven't had so much fun playing a game as I've had with this one in a long time.
ArcOfTheConclave: I someone asks if you're a god, say yes!
EricTheOrange: "happy otaku pack vol. 4"
chaostreader: ^
MunchlaxRegretsNothing: I actually do like it when there's some difference between the expression.
chaostreader: So, yes. Or Yes!
Invitare: now you're attacking cat heads
MunchlaxRegretsNothing: I like being able to express a character even if it means nothing, I guess :p
Dog_of_Myth: So it goes to 11?
cmdrud87: This is definitely some anime end credit
MunchlaxRegretsNothing: But if there's genuinely one choice and it just wants me to press a button, ugh.
DarkMorford: Yeah, it does sound a little crunchy. Wasn't sure if that was just the stream or the game.
chaostreader: Are they riding a round polar bear?
mtvcdm: yes
caelusaran: Was that weaponized candy corn?
ContingentCat: lrrSPOOP lrrHEART
mtvcdm: Yes as well
Dog_of_Myth: Yes
MAPBoardgames: The audio is peaking.
constablecrab: It could be a koala?
kusinohki: get the mixer's permission first
EricTheOrange: no one likes touching the mixer
Dog_of_Myth: !findquote mixer

ContingentCat: CONTINUOUS
SquareDotCube: Also we're on Twitch, not Mixer. Kappa
SilentOptimist: Now I remember! I saw AI-chan playing that one
ContingentCat: CONSENT
Feminine_Desires: This game is *exactly* my aesthetic~
mtvcdm: You'll note, we begin the stream already at level 27.
SilentOptimist: i still don't know where that meme comes from
ContingentCat: katesThank
angryoptimist: A cat getting mad.
niccus: it's never a bad time to switch over to mudamudamudamudamuda
Dog_of_Myth: You can only meme so hard for so long.
chaostreader: “It’s Bonathan, the flying lrrEFF skull”
angryoptimist: That's where the meme came from.
Invitare: wryy is jojo, the other one is probably 4chan
EricTheOrange: probably originaly made for a phone so you slide the volume with the screen
Stoffern: Everyone likes particles
SilentOptimist: and somehow it got associated with mental health?
kusinohki: particle man partcle man...
Invitare: 4chan ruins things for everyone
PlusDY: doin the things a particle can
angryoptimist: Yeah, someone used it to try and make fun of austistic people people.
ContingentCat: @SilentOptimist
chaostreader: My internet was misbehaving for a second there, which meme?
angryoptimist: Wasn't even 4chan, IIRC--some political person or something.
Dog_of_Myth: You mean Dragonforce RPM? LUL
EricTheOrange: which christmas song is this?
chaostreader: Oh. That.
EricTheOrange: this one seems a bit harder
accountmadeforants: This looks suitably, cute, anime and murderous
niccus: i'll have you know that gabber is a proud tradition of weirdly horny japanese music
constablecrab: Punch those pig-riding....Christmas... ghosts?
EricTheOrange: This doesn't sound like any christmas song I know
accountmadeforants: I already don't understand how so many things are being... dealt with... at once.
kusinohki: are you sure it's not boxing day? what with all the punching you see...
SilentOptimist: noice rithym
zazamost: rip boxing bear
SilentOptimist: BibleThump
DarkMorford: Sorta like how any game with "Donkey" in the title is about great apes?
ArcOfTheConclave: I remember diner dash. good memories
EricTheOrange: In my experience rhythm games have 1 dificulty for easy 1 dificulty for normal and like 10 increasing levels of hard.
chaostreader: I’m not even playing and there is just to much stuff happening at once to be able to keep track.
angryoptimist: The game does go out of its way to be cute.
Invitare: speaking of which, is Melody coming back this year?
paulsnotsogoodlookinghat: yall should pay bang g
SilentOptimist: titilating outfits, i understand
Feminine_Desires: It's actually really quite nice, I find those to be a feminine sexuality.
Feminine_Desires: Like I don't think it is fan service *at all*
DarkMorford: Fanservice? Nah, the three sets of long legs on the loading screen didn't hint that at all, Heather.
angryoptimist: ^
EricTheOrange: I dislike when they combine "cute" with "sexy".
Feminine_Desires: Yeah I know, But it doens't feel fan service when I played it.
angryoptimist: We're not yucking fanservice or anything here--just, not for everyone.
Feminine_Desires: It just feels like a feminine sexuality that is embraced.
Dog_of_Myth: Different things for different folks, it's all good.
Dread_Pirate_Westley: No. I am going to stay.
kusinohki: *pout* I'll show myself out now...
TehAmelie: i just want fanservice to not be in "everything"
MunchlaxRegretsNothing: @Feminine_Desires Right, you can feel that way but there's no point trying to argue it
chaostreader: New quote?
Juliamon: That's more of a clip than anything.
Dog_of_Myth: They are optional outfits. You don't have to use them in this game.
chaostreader: “If you don’t like rhythm games, get the F—- out!”
chickenace11: welp im heading into lurk mode to do some homework
MAPBoardgames: I'm on board, Iam
constablecrab: Cartoon Network presents "Dark Materials Go!"
DarkMorford: Yeah, I personally don't have a problem with fanservicey stuff. I like watching the ecchi comedy anime. Totally understand how it would be a turn-off for some people or that they're not stream-appropriate, though.
Dog_of_Myth: But the difficultly on this game does get intense later on.

Raithencore235: Is the "His Dark Materials" series getting a tv show? Or is that some dream I made up?
chaostreader: If I’m remembering the story correctly from when I read the books forever ago, that would make it better.
Anubis169: Hellooooooo Ian and Heather lrrAWESOME
Dog_of_Myth: @Raithencore235 Yep, on HBO.
TehAmelie: the jerky animation is so perfect for this game
EricTheOrange: I'm asexual so for me fanservice is just like "ugh more of this, can we just do something, ANYTHING else".
zazamost: Heather & Ian: Have you had any opportunities to play rhythm games in arcades, aside from typical stuff like DDR or Pump It Up? Not sure what the arcade game scene let alone the rhythm game scene is like out where you are.
Juliamon: I wish I was excited, but His Dark Materials was great for 2.5 books and then took a hard nosedive for me which soured the whole thing
chaostreader: ^
angryoptimist: I imagine that sexual fanservice is boring to aces, huh?
zazamost: DDR, but you rotate teh foot pads by 45 degrees
ContingentCat: yup
Dared00: @zazamost and add center step
angryoptimist: Sexual fanservice is not the only kind of fanservice, however! Continuity nods? Nods to your favorite thing? Fanservice!
TehAmelie: i mean i got bored with it after reading X-Men comics for ten years
paulsnotsogoodlookinghat: have you guys heard of dance rush stardom?
mtvcdm: Now it's just aging editions of Big Buck Hunter, crane games, and various 'beat the #notascam we've set up and win a free iPod!'
ContingentCat: @angryoptimist yeah, some Aces really don't like it, for a lot of us it's just boring
DarkMorford: angryoptimist Very true. "Girls und Panzer" is relatively light on the sexual connotation, but dear lord is it fanservice if you like tanks.
EricTheOrange: @angryoptimist true, but language has, as it always does, taken the subtulty out of words and now fanservice refers to sexual fanservice.
EricTheOrange: Bishy boshi is a trip.
Juliamon: EricTheOrange Yeah, "fanservice" is now purely sexual and anything else is "pandering"
angryoptimist: As to sexuality and its expression: there are, necessarily, differing opinions on how that should be expressed--and that's fine, even good. As long as nobody's crossing the boundaries in proscribing to someone else how they're allowed to express theirs.
TehAmelie: question: do you need to punch stuff in the air to stay floating?
Painfully_Dyslexic: I've wanted to go to conventions to check stuff like that out but as someone with agoraphobia I can't handle the crowds
Juliamon: That font didnt look like "8bit" to my eyes
MAPBoardgames: If you went to Japan to find rhythm games could you write that off as a business expense?
EricTheOrange: @LoadingReadyRun so how much patreon do we need for "LRR goes to japan"?
MAPBoardgames: JapanQuest?
TehAmelie: seems more like a kickstarter
Brozard: Train Quest
ContingentCat: SkyQuest
DarkMorford: "Ian and Heather go to Japanese Arcades" sounds like a LRLIVE prerecord to me.
zazamost: Next time you're in Seattle Washington, may I suggest taking a venture to Round 1 Arcade? It's close to to the Seattle Airport, and it's a Japanese arcade/amusement chain that's flourishing in the states. They have oodles of really neat rhythm games and you don't have to venture to Japan.
SAJewers: indeed
angryoptimist: @Juliamon @EricTheOrange Like many things, there's multiple sets of vocalubaries. If you're DEEP deep into the weeb crap, it's got the nuance of meaning multiple things still (sexual fanservice inclusive). Far enough outside, though, all anime is Naruto so *shrugs*
Rhynerd: “Are you kids playing the skrillex in this house?”
mtvcdm: !patreon
Feminine_Desires: How I feel about this game: The sexuality in this game does not feel like fanservice at all. This game in its entirely embraces femininity, it is, femininity the rhythm game. And it tries to embrace all the forms of femininity as various characters. From cute to punk to sexual to goth to business etc. It is all there and it is all a part of the feminine expression this game is going for.

PMAvers: "This trip to Japan was brought to you by Denglervision."
SAJewers: any japanese cons that lrr could get invited to? :P
TehAmelie: blog, vlog, something along those lines
EricTheOrange: That's Beejs part of the buisness. (he handels the finances right?"
gualdhar: is there a way to get the OST for this? I suck at rhythm games but the music is great
Dog_of_Myth: When I win the lottery, I'll send LRR to Japan. LUL
chaostreader: @painfully_dyslexic I know that most Pax have rooms to cool down and relax in. To avoid crowds. And, depending on the strength of your agoraphobia most of the panels are just like a auditorium or concert hall like event.
DarkMorford: Oh, can we do LRRcon 2 in Akiba? :P
angryoptimist: It looks a little Flash shape-warp-y animation to me, honestly.
EricTheOrange: It's a bit too "aggressively cute" for my taste. Some cute is fine (like Reccetear) but this is a bit much.
PMAvers: I wonder how much lottery winnings it'd take for "Get LRR to Japan... and rent out a Japanese game show to inflict on them" would be.
angryoptimist: @Feminine_Desires It's fine for other people to have more locked-up feelings about their sexuality, though. Just as long as they don't push that on anybody else. I agree with sexual positivity, though.
ContingentCat: the Aesthetic generally seems to be A LOT,
MunchlaxRegretsNothing: All types of femininity, as long as they are young and thin and cute... :\
Feminine_Desires: @EricTheOrange there's non-cute songs and characters, but the map enemies and colour scheme do stay the same.
MAPBoardgames: Like Bit.Trip has a storu
Dog_of_Myth: Just make up your own backstory for it Heather.
e_bloc: uni220 this game is still fantastic
A Cheer shared Rewards to 3 others in Chat!
Brozard: I can see that being too much movement, but the animation is so smooth and well done. I really like the amount of care that went into creating that.
EricTheOrange: Honestly the game play of this feels pretty much identical to Taiko but with more variety to the notes.
angryoptimist: Punch bear, though.
DarkMorford: Hoo boy, did Runner 3 have story. "Sausage Santa" anyone?
TehAmelie: we're reaching some Killer Instinct degrees of combo here
TehAmelie: oops
Juliamon: It suuuure is
ContingentCat: wat
EricTheOrange: @LoadingReadyRun is their any licensed stuff in the "Otaku pack"
chaostreader: Is this song Senbonzakura? Remixed?
chaostreader: *was
ContingentCat: @DarkMorford um I
ContingentCat: I'm sorry wat "sausage santa">
ContingentCat: *?
Juliamon: Don't even worry about it.
angryoptimist: @DarkMorford Runner 3 was sort of a blur for me. We saw that on Heather's home stream, right? Was that the one with everything having faces?
Juliamon: That's for the future.
ContingentCat: oh good something to look forward to
Juliamon: Good ol' Meat Circus.
mtvcdm: I believe it was the everything-wth-faces one.
angryoptimist: I don't know what Meat Circus means and I'm not sure I want to.
EricTheOrange: I'm not into vocaloid music, but this sounds like vocaloid music to me. At least the same genre.
DarkMorford: angryoptimist It was either a home stream or it was a Heather/Cori cafe when Ian was out. I don't remember for sure.
mtvcdm: Meat Circus is a level in Psychonauts.
ContingentCat: "meat circus" sounds like a dangerous google
angryoptimist: So many, many things are dangerous googles, now.
TehAmelie: why don't we have a Sausage Santa? especially over here in sauerkraut country
kusinohki: is runner 3 different from bit trip runner? I think I'm getting those confused...
Juliamon: I think Meat Circus is infamous enough to make a search reasonably safe.
Juliamon: It stopped many a Psychonaut player's attempt to beat the game.
TehAmelie: maybe google "Meat circus" -guignol
Feminine_Desires: Meat Circus on Bing with safe search filter off: Perfectly safe.
MunchlaxRegretsNothing: I'd be less worried about kink and more worried about gore?
caelusaran: That was a hell of a line to come back to. O.o
PMAvers: I mean, Harley Quinn.
SuperSugarSloth: gentleman's sausage
chaostreader: !findquote meat
LRRbot: Quote #1900: "Totally innocuous meat flamingos." —Cori [2016-02-19]
mtvcdm: I mean, what's Harley Quinn's aesthetic
kusinohki: once you try flying trapeze sex...
Feminine_Desires: I am a few "pages" in this search and there's no sexual stuff
angryoptimist: If it's safe on Bing, it's safe anywhere.
Juliamon: Every week is Haloweak
TehAmelie: "thank you for bearing with me as i vocalize my straining thought process"?
ContingentCat: it can always be Halloweek in our hearts
FITorion: I think a came in at an especially weird time
Earthenone: i dont think thats true :)
Juliamon: FITorion nah, you missed the actual weird stuff
chaostreader: @fitorion Nope. That was a minute ago.
angryoptimist: If it's Halloweek in your heart for more than 3 months, consult your physician. Kappa
Juliamon: Unless you WERE here for sausage Santa, in which.. yeah
mtvcdm: Make sure you ask for honey mussy in your stocking
angryoptimist: Halloweek has side-effects. Halloweek may be inappropriate for cardiac people. Consult your physician when taking Halloweek. Kappa
chaostreader: Hallo-Strong?
mtvcdm: Retainers are closer to being out of teeth jail than braces.
Juliamon: Heavy autotune is sort of a staple of this kind of music.
TehAmelie: it seems tightly related to the vocaloid species of artificial singers
chaostreader: ^
angryoptimist: So, this got me thinking about T-Pain. And that got me thinking about the Lonely Island song he guested on. And that got me thinking... are there any Japanese parody music bands/artists that anybody here knows of?
angryoptimist: I doubt I could appreciate them fully without knowing the language, but I'm curious.
angryoptimist: Is there a Japanese Weird Al? A Japanese Lonely Island? Flight of the Concordes?
angryoptimist: *Conchords?
ATinyFalcon converted from a Twitch Prime sub to a Tier 1 sub!
Juliamon: Oh boy, dysthymia
niccus: how about the counter-question: is there an american Pikotaro?
DarkMorford: I'm still firmly in the camp of "Autotune done correctly should be undetectable." It's there to touch up imperfections, not define a sound.
Feminine_Desires: I feel like TQ would love this game as well, but I don't know if she enjoys rhythm games.
chaostreader: Senbonzakura?
ContingentCat: oh this is neat music
DarkMorford: Not Senbonzakura, but very similar
TehAmelie: this makes me want to play Pocky & Rocky
chaostreader: It sounds like someone shifted some of the notes.
mtvcdm: I never got around to Pocky and Rocky.
Dared00: once again, just like Taiko ;D
TehAmelie: it's sort of like this, but presented as a schmup
Earthenone: Srank!
constablecrab: Punching things with a bear is its own reward.
Benzilla99: This artstyle is so cute
angryoptimist: @niccus Thanks! Looked the fellow up, that answers my question.
ContingentCat: !findquote jojo
LRRbot: Quote #4597: "Is this a JoJo?" —Graham [2018-01-13]
Juliamon: More like, why HAVEN'T they made that game yet
TehAmelie: i'm trying to figure out if the girl riding on the bear adds anything to the team
angryoptimist: A JoJo rhythm game would work.
Benzilla99: Shes moral support
mtvcdm: There's more going on in a setup like this, it's not just lines and shapes and stuff.
MAPBoardgames: The boss of the level is Odd Job
DarkMorford: @mtvcdm You mean it's not Just Shapes and Beats? Kappa
angryoptimist: You could even make it make it work story wise; make it a sidestory with an original rhythm game Stand. I don't doubt Araki would be down.
ContingentCat: isn't there already a bunch of music stuff in Jojo? A rythum game would make sense
mtvcdm: We've had rhythm games come through here that have been just geometric shapes across the screen and they've not landed the greatest.
constablecrab: This is the weirdest musical adaptation of Miller's Crossing.
chaostreader: @tehamelie It reminds me of Gaige from Borderlands 2, cute girl with dangerous punch robot.
Bellpei: It was also a plotline in PInky and Brain.
ContingentCat: are you thinking of The Mask?
MAPBoardgames: Evil hats took over in Meet the Robinsons
Earthenone: i feel like evil hats taking over is a cartoon trope
kusinohki: pinky and brain episode where they get the name of the hat they're wearing?
angryoptimist: @ContingentCat Yep. Araki is a fan of a bunch of western musical acts, so he sprinkles it liberally in everything.
Raithencore235: Meet the Robinsons?
DarkMorford: "Enka Dance Music"?
chaostreader: One of Pack 3 had the font style from Sword Art Online. The color, background and letters all looked right from the little I saw of it.
DarkMorford: The Taiko games tend to have the current Pokemon theme for that year, I think
Bellpei: Oh gosh, I loved Theatrhythm so much.
Painfully_Dyslexic: I'd really like a punk/rock/metal focused game like this
Bellpei: Yeah, the second one was better imo.
caelusaran: Goodness.
Juliamon: This is literally just Panty.
angryoptimist: Now that's a sentence that'd sound odd if you didn't know about the character.
kusinohki: the first attack on titan sounded like that??
angryoptimist: Enka EDM.
niccus: Enka... IDM
Juliamon: EnkaDM
ArcOfTheConclave: I liove her hoverboard
constablecrab: Okay this slaps
Alness49: Enkacore
Alephred: Oh, I thought Ian was talking about the Incas, you know, in ancient S. America.
Dared00: This is amazing
Bellpei: Well, I'm going on a long train trip tomorrow. i think I'm gonna download this onto my switch for the trip. <3 Thanks Heather.
Earthenone: !findquote wub
LRRbot: Could not find any matching quotes.
ContingentCat: katesThank my sick brain was very confused with that homophone looking for a connection to the Inca
Xafty: @Bellpei we too should be going on a long trip tommorow. a road quest if you will. have fun.

Juliamon: I could see Precure, but I stand behind my "That's Panty" declaration
ContingentCat: Would just saying "wub wub" be cheating or PostModern?
DarkMorford: Heartcatch best PreCure.
ArcOfTheConclave: What is this 'enough PreCure'?
ArcOfTheConclave: is that a thing?
Bellpei: I'll admit. I still have it in my head to this day.
Dared00: um, excuse me, Naruto German opening
Painfully_Dyslexic: that is the only good thing 4kids ever did
Xafty: im with Ian on that. much as i dislike all the other 4kids stuff. that song is a banger
DarkMorford: Yeah, I never saw Glitter Force, but I've heard plenty about it.

ContingentCat: I mean, that is the internet's normal reaction to most things
TehAmelie: One Piece ending theme 2 though
DarkMorford: "Difficuty"? Way to spell check, developers.
EricTheOrange: reminds me of later phoenix wright games when the series delved more into traditional Japanese stuff when the game already set itself up as in america.
ContingentCat: katesThank
Juliamon: "Budget is burning" that's a mood
angryoptimist: I choose to believe that it's a pun on Difficulty + cute.
Earthenone: spell checking is difficut, ok
Gizmoloid: My favourite comic about translators making everything take place in US
DarkMorford: 🎶 After these messages, we'll be riiiiiight back!
chaostreader: Sound?
DarkMorford: Oh, dang. Now that I see it on the ad card, another round of What's In The Box last night would have been great.
Earthenone: my favorite translation censorship thing is still the yugioh GX sake=hot sauce
Juliamon: Do I have time to make coffee? No, but I'm gonna go for it anyway.
angryoptimist: @Earthenone So people were just drinking hot sauce?
Earthenone: people, cats, monsters
chaostreader: @earthenone Oh. I know exactly where that is, and never knew that was a thing. Makes sense.
angryoptimist: @Earthenone That's surreal. I love it.
TehAmelie: hehe remember the bit in Butterfly Soup where they drink hot sauce due to cultural ignorance
DarkMorford: I remember that episode, yeah. Or there was one Digimon episode where the enemy 'mon was hooked on "orange soda" and the bubbles went right to his head. >_>
niccus: i guess in the opposite direction there's that jean reno wasabi scene
TehAmelie: ah, bubbles in your head, the internationally recognized sign of being drunk
chaostreader: Chumley dueling his father, why do I remember this? It makes sense, what non-alcoholic drink makes your face flush red.
mtvcdm: Lanota next week.
Dog_of_Myth: Random thought: I kinda want that Roadquest title screen as a playmat.
banachspacebar: I wonder if any of the 4kids translators ever explicitly go for the most ridiculous Americanization they can
TehAmelie: ooh
mtvcdm: And more PiF later tonight.
Feminine_Desires: FIGHTING FOODONS! Fighting food with attitude
Earthenone: i mean i remember it quite vividly as i challanegd myself to watch ALL yugioh and spinoffs a couple years back :)
Earthenone: cant be sure why you do, though it is a pivitol charicter moment
chaostreader: All? A few years back, that would be GX, 5DS and Zexel?
Earthenone: also arcV
Earthenone: was only a couple years back
Painfully_Dyslexic: was there any reason why 4kids were so "aggresive" with their localisation? or was it just down to plain old xenophobia?
Earthenone: and it wasent done so not all of it
DarkMorford: I stopped after watching 5D's. By that point there were too damn many mechanics to keep track of.
banachspacebar: in honor of this discussion, I'm going to have a "hot sauce" kit kat
TehAmelie: i think it was just trying to tailor the stuff for American preteens
DarkMorford: Yeah, I think it was less overt racism and more "This is what resonates with our target demo."
TehAmelie: "we think"
Earthenone: i dont know if they have the correct merch conections but they should at least make that roadquest logo into a bumper sticker
Anubis169: Painfully_Dyslexic: because they were so intensely set on not offending anybody that anything which could remotely be interpreted as edgy was altered
chaostreader: It was also harder back then to just easily look up international references
Anubis169: should see what they did to One Piece... nngh
DarkMorford: Even more than the dicey translations, the thing that always irked me about 4Kids was that they'd take shows originally intended for late-middle to early-high school kids (the Yugioh series being good examples) and try to rehash it to be palatable to 10-year-olds.
niccus: ya-yo, ya-yo
aWabbajack: yo! Party People
EricTheOrange: @Anubis169 it's not so much the "sex, violence and language" but the "we can't have anything not american" attitude. Like why are onigiri jelly doughnuts?
TehAmelie: Ted Woolsey may have said too much in this interview i read once. he said Nintendo of America would be delighted to just keep the music and graphics from the games from Japan and rewrite them completely if they could
Dog_of_Myth: Welcome back
Anubis169: EricTheOrange: Partially DarkMorford's reasoning
Rhynerd: I would doubt it at all.
SquareDotCube: Waifu worship?
Rhynerd: *not doubt
chaostreader: @erictheorange Because they intended for young children to watch this stuff. And most kids wouldn’t know what onigiri is.
Anubis169: because honestly, only a tiny amount of 10 year olds in the target demographic in the states back then knew what an onigiri was
banachspacebar: This discussion makes me wonder - what's the bare minimum you'd need to do to create something that qualifies as both "onigiri" and "jelly donut"
cuttlefishman: Ian, what should I cook for tomorrow thanksgiving

Feminine_Desires: @banachspacebar gluten free donuts made with rice flour
Anubis169: banachspacebar: Ever had an onigiri filled with sweet red bean paste?
Anubis169: those are badass
Anubis169: and could quite easily pass for a doughnut equiv'
SquareDotCube: Veggie burgers. Nobody will expect it!
niccus: oh hey new difficulty level
FITorion: Honzuki anime is finally airing.
Painfully_Dyslexic: yeah I'd like a slice of life anime that wasn't in highschool
cuttlefishman: Like... Watamote?
EricTheOrange: @chaostreader ok so what. They have all kinds of made up stuff in say pokemon. if a kid can get behind like 800 pokemin a few foods and stuff they don't understand should sink in. Worst case senario they just think onigiri is pokemon food.
banachspacebar: Or they just translate "onigiri" as "rice balls"
Anubis169: EricTheOrange: which in turn sets off 4kids' censor's board
Anubis169: 4kids weren't good

Feminine_Desires: @EricTheOrange the problem with that analysis is that you could get pokemon stuff in america, like a lot of it, games, merchandise, music and so much more. Onigiri? Kids would never be able to find that on their own.
Earthenone: not enough people orchestrating from the back of luxuray cars
FITorion: this season marks the first time manga and light novels I was reading beforehand became anime
Feminine_Desires: Like you can't change the pokemon stuff because the games enfranchised it already before the show did.
FITorion: Accendence of a Bookworm and Didn't I say to make my abilities average
MunchlaxRegretsNothing: Is that so bad? I remember seeing foods I dodn't recognise in cartoons when I was little, and it usually led to me trying to make the food or asking Mum to show me how
MunchlaxRegretsNothing: Like, to creativity and exploration, which are surely good things to encourage in kids?
Anubis169: munch: 4kids
Earthenone: i am trying to remember if i was exposed to a jelly doughnut or a "jelly doughnut" earlier in life
EricTheOrange: @Feminine_Desires I mean I read british fantasy like the chronicles of narnia growing up and that had englishism in it I didn't understand but I figured it out with context.
Anubis169: that's books
chaostreader: @erictheorange We’re not saying it was a good decision, it’s just that the company probably decided to hedge their bets and make it as American as possible.
Anubis169: you're not thinking like a company that's just in it for the money
niccus: i'm not sure if power rangers is an example of an adventurous american publisher or localization gone too far
MunchlaxRegretsNothing: @EricTheOrange Good point. I've had the same experience with tons of US foods. Twinkies, Baby Ruth, whatever the heck Fluffernutter is
MunchlaxRegretsNothing: "Jelly"
MunchlaxRegretsNothing: "entree"
mtvcdm: Does quidditch still qualify, given that that's a real sport now?
mtvcdm: And a violent sport at that.
SAJewers: bridge on afk when Kappa
Earthenone: late night bridge fight
SquareDotCube: No no, rummoli, and Wiggins has to attend too
niccus: is there a bridge variant of magic?
EricTheOrange: huh I've never heard of rummoli
banachspacebar: I'm sure someone somewhere has made Bridge Magic
kusinohki: rummoli was mentioned last db by wiggins
DarkMorford: Being in Victoria, I'd imagine you all get more British-isms than most of Canada. You and your darn silent "U"s. :P
kusinohki: it reminded me of "tripoli"
Alness49: It requires goat tokens though
kusinohki: it's a game that combines hearts, poker, and michigan rummy
Gizmoloid: Unavailability of onigiri is in no way a good reason to just call them doughnuts. Unfamiliar looking food with a strange name is an easy concept to wrap your head around at any age. Calling it a doughnut when the real thing is easily obtainable can actually be quite confusing.
MunchlaxRegretsNothing: What's the magic variant with 3v3 teams and attack ranges?
EricTheOrange: Ah google says it's a "canadian board game with cards".
MunchlaxRegretsNothing: Emperor, possibly?
banachspacebar: Emperor
Earthenone: Emporor
chaostreader: That’s accurate.
MunchlaxRegretsNothing: Ah yeah thanks!
Armstrong11139: I mean, you're not wrong
Lysander_Gustav: Hello everyone!
niccus: oh right bridge got banned from modern
Lysander_Gustav: there's a magical-boy series?
Anubis169: Lysander_Gustav: Yup
Lysander_Gustav: Was it the penguin one?
Armstrong11139: Hmm...Wish Upon the Pleiades is definitely a magical girl show, but it has A magical boy in it
EricTheOrange: Than again on the topic of british to american translations I heard they had to "translate" the harry potter books when they released them in america.
DarkMorford: Oh, god, the kappa scene. Don't remind me, Ian. x_x
Lysander_Gustav: Oh that one
niccus: we did get a different title for the first book
MunchlaxRegretsNothing: Well there is famously "Sorcerer's Stone"
OmnipotentTrevor: As far as I'm aware, they only translated the title of the Harry Potter book. I don't think the contents of the books changed, but I could be wrong
Earthenone: i mean assuming americans wouldent know what a philosopher is seems VERY brittish :P
EricTheOrange: @OmnipotentTrevor it's manly britsh slang apparently. I haven't seen a side by saide translation.
PMAvers: And then Beej posts images from the other ones in #memes
chaostreader: Why is it even called a philosopher’s stone? It’s made by an alchemist.
MunchlaxRegretsNothing: But conversely tehre's also "Legend of Aang"
DarkMorford: Oh, I need to rewatch Shugo Chara at some point. Probably my second favorite mahou shoujo after the Nanoha series, possibly tied with Cardcaptor Sakura.
FITorion: I think Ascendance of a Bookworm may be up your ally Heather
OmnipotentTrevor: As an American, I remember having to get used to the word "snogging" show up a lot. If there was more that did get translated, I guess I appreciate it.
chaostreader: @darkmorford I loved that show!
mtvcdm: Beej will show up in the LRRCord, but mostly for work reasons.
ghostvalv: lrrSPOOP
Gizmoloid: As a kid I watched loads of American cartoons and shows and nobody had any problems with understanding that American thing from America are American. Though now I'm kind of curious what would X-Files look like if translators decided to pretend that it's in Ukraine :D

noSmokeFire: this song bops
MunchlaxRegretsNothing: @chaostreader Guessing because there wasn't really a distinction between a philosopher, alchemist, and scientist back in the day
Xenguin47: Are we a magical guitar girl?
Lysander_Gustav: Demon girl next door?
PixelSavage: btw ... what happens once you run out of good rhytm games ?
DarkMorford: Machikado Mazoku. That was a ton of fun.
DarkMorford: And so gay.
niccus: they're never running out of good rhythm games
Juliamon: They also never said they would ONLY play "good" ones
MunchlaxRegretsNothing: Enough deconstruction, time for a magical girl reconstruction?
Xenguin47: I thoroughly enjoyed Sailor Nothing, but it's definitely dark in places.
mtvcdm: Even if we do run out of rhythm games, there's plenty of other game genres that could get a weekly show around here.
MunchlaxRegretsNothing: XD
noSmokeFire: if you read webcomics, definitely check out Sleepless Domain. it's a mix of comedy and drama, but it actually respects its characters
mtvcdm: So many genres.
Juliamon: It's like the fear that W+P would run out of bad games. There's a bigger supply than you think.
Earthenone: could just do a weekly show where they play an imported game, call it something witty like matters of import
chaostreader: ^
Xenguin47: I concur, Sleepless Domain is good at showing "real" magical girls with realism, rather than grim dark.
GDwarf: I'm not big on dark Magical Girls, I love Madoka so much, but all the others I don't care for. Give me, instead, "normal" magical girl that goes darker places, like Sailor Moon and Princess Tutu.
Juliamon: I just want more Nanoha.
EricTheOrange: OK did a bit of googling, it's mainly slang that's changed. Like for example in british english it's "he had hands the size of dustbin lids" and in american it's "he had hands the size of trash can lids"
Feminine_Desires: @GDwarf there's quite a few american magical girl webcomics you would enjoy.
Gizmoloid: "What do girls hide under their skirts except for panties? Fish? Pillows? Bears?!" - WTF, game? :D
GDwarf: Feminine_Desires I'm eagerly awaiting my dead tree version of Sleepless Domain
Lysander_Gustav: I was starting to watch a magical girl show this year, where they pilot mechs. The episodes I've seen so far are okay.
GDwarf: *Danganronpa* had trouble not being terrible at times, imitators don't stand a chance. :P
DarkMorford: Heather, there was a show last year called "Release the Spyce" that you might enjoy. It's ninja/secret-agent flavored magical girl, and it does deal with the danger inherent in the job and what happens when they age out of it.
GDwarf: Lysander_Gustav Granblem? I've heard good things about that.
SydPreviouslyHeadache: Will vouch for Cagle, he webcomics are great
SydPreviouslyHeadache: Her*
SFSMaus: Just entered the room after having watched Ian and Graham murder a toaster
Lysander_Gustav: Yes good
Armstrong11139: "Anime is the mind-killer. Anime is the little death that brings questionable merchandising decisions."
Earthenone: dident they do a highschool version of romance of the three kingdoms?
MAPBoardgames: I would watch a highschool anime adaptation of Dune.
ogundiety: I read the entire dune series in a single night. For a boy.
GDwarf: Earthenone Several, I've no doubt
ogundiety: I am a very dumb guy sometimes, let's just leave it at that.
Earthenone: i remember a friend in highschool bringing up "Lu Bu- Chan"
Lysander_Gustav: Dune suffers from world-builders disease with a strong side-order of misogyny
noSmokeFire: give me the horse girl book version of dune where Muad'ib bonds with an untameable sand worm and saves it from an unethical rancher
MAPBoardgames: a few As
FITorion: I read several books that people generally critizise as slow... and have never found them to be slow
ogundiety: THough this was before his son took over 'writing' the followup books
FITorion: I do find many books to be super fast... glossing over things without enough thought or detail...
Lysander_Gustav: @noSmokeFire Yes that sounds amazing
Feminine_Desires: I love Marija's witch form :loveeyes:
GDwarf: "Dysthymia": "Persistent, mild depression", this will be a cheerful song, I'm sure
Lysander_Gustav: What about battleaxes and warhammers?
kusinohki: real musicians would take better care of their instruments...
DarkMorford: But does one do machines? And is another cool but rude?
noSmokeFire: so far I'm really digging the music in this game
chaostreader: Can confirm. A bow whips through the air and hurts a lot.
GDwarf: This song, at least, is making me think of JDK Falcom's stuff, which is neat
Xenguin47: I like the hp mechanic for if you're passing a song or not
GDwarf: The character models outside of combat are kinda hilariously over-animated
Lysander_Gustav: I sort of wish One Finger Death Punch synched up the music with the battle. That way it could be fully a rhythm game.
OmnipotentTrevor: Every time I hear about another Romance of the Three Kingdoms or Warring States era piece of media I start to wish my countries history got the same treatment. A founding fathers over the top action game or high school AU. I mean, I guess there's Abe Lincoln vampire hunter. Still haven't watched that
Xenguin47: Better than a sad otaku pack...?
GDwarf: I need to actually watch Stars, I know what happens in it, and I've seen the musical adaptation of it (which was great), but not the TV series
GDwarf: I mean, the Starlights are around for over half of Stars, aren't they?
Lysander_Gustav: what is this?
chaostreader: A rhythm game.
DarkMorford: I don't think I ever got around to watching past Sailor Moon R. I need to check out the other three seasons.
GDwarf: The problem with a Sailor Moon watch is the 200 episodes. Plus a movie.
GDwarf: The Doom Tree saga is amusingly divisive, I know people who love Ail and An
EricTheOrange: To quote ProZD ""i have no time to watch shows" i say as i rewatch 12 episodes of shirobako in one sitting"
PMAvers: Babies *do* have the most tender and chocolately of hearts.
niccus: what's an lpis
MAPBoardgames: Is "feed the doom tree" a euphemism? If so, for what?
Juliamon: I never watched Stars and I don't know if I want to
Lysander_Gustav: :D
Juliamon: Oh yeah... I still have never seen Kodocha in a non-RM format
EricTheOrange: I'm always afraid of experiencing media of my youth but I'm afraid that they will not hold up and ruin my young rose tinited memories
Lysander_Gustav: That's unfortunate
chaostreader: Are we fighting Go-Go from Big Hero 6?
noSmokeFire: "fighting evil by moonlight" yup, sounds evil. checks out
Lysander_Gustav: That reminds me I need to watch more Cardcaptor Sakura
GDwarf: Heh, my parents thought Sailor Moon was too violent, coupled with my classmates calling me weird for talking about it, so I never did get to see much when young.
DarkMorford: I remember RealMedia's RMVB format not being all that terrible, but yeah. Their original codec just honked.
chaostreader: ‘Totally collect 500 notes’ not the best translation?
mtvcdm: I imagine they had no problem with the Negaverse. But that Sailor Moon, *she's* the suspicious one.
Lysander_Gustav: It's probably racism
GDwarf: Sailor Moon, the character, is evil. She establishes an eternal totalitarian regime wherein she keeps exiling people into other dimensions. :P
noSmokeFire: a church trying to cast sailor moon as an evil doer sounds like a sailor moon plot
MAPBoardgames: Thank you, Father Bumper.

EricTheOrange: Is that the voice of a QWRPline charecter

MAPBoardgames: Highlight reel: super cut of just "welcome to the highlight reel"
Lysander_Gustav: Great, now I'm imagining a Sailor Moon game in the style of a Yakuza game. Including a spearfishing minigame
buckminst: I remember going downstairs every morning to set my mother's VCR to record the DIC Sailor Moon episodes.
buckminst: Off the USA Network. x.x
GDwarf: Clearly the theological issues with Sailor Moon are that one episode wherein an American priest turns into an evil boxer
EricTheOrange: @buckminst do they have the USA network in Canada?
buckminst: I doubt it lol
buckminst: Woudl've been on YTV in Canada, IIRC.
FITorion: <<< Venus Wars. midnight Scifi channel movie
noSmokeFire: how do you mess up a tv series THAT BAD
EricTheOrange: ah the days of syndicated only TV. where their can be no storyline that lasts longer than a singkle episode.
GDwarf: US TV stations took a decade to figure out that cartoons could have an ongoing plot
CataclysmicReverb: Harmony Gold is the worst...
Lysander_Gustav: yeah that was wild
GDwarf: Yeah, something I loved about anime was that it had an ongoing plot
mtvcdm: Difficulty master!
Earthenone: Woo oo
GDwarf: Like, Digimon is, in hindsight, pretty episodic, but at the time I was amazed at how stuff would change over time!
Lysander_Gustav: Tailspin was great, but yeah
Lysander_Gustav: I never got a chance to see Gargoyles when it was first on tv, due to scheduling issues. But I heard it had a plot
Earthenone: yeah pokemon/digimon were great bridges for that episodic to long story gap
DarkMorford: This is why Gargoyles was one of the greats of that time period.
Lysander_Gustav: deeply groovy tunes
EricTheOrange: As I understand it it was all about syndication. The money was in making like 2-3 seasons and just selling them off for decades. and for that to work every episode had to be it's own contained thing so they could be watched in any order.
DarkMorford: Third season notwithstanding. But even the creator doesn't consider that canon, so yeah.
caelusaran: And it had a stellar cast :D
DarkMorford: Oh yeah, Gargoyles had incredible voice work.
GDwarf: Syndication didn't require episodic TV, but it wasn't until the '80s that VCRs became affordable and common, and before that serial TV was a real issue, because if you missed a week that was it, you couldn't catch up.
EricTheOrange: @caelusaran HAH I get it.
