Brain Drain

The flavor isn’t horrible, but if I want something that tastes like a Pepsi, I’ll buy a Pepsi.

I read about people hoarding the old recipe Coke, and selling it for a significant premium. Can you imagine if that happened today with online shopping?

I don’t think they would have made it into production with New Coke in today’s environment. Can you imagine the Social Media backlash? :woozy_face:

People have practically ruined their lives with an individual post. For Coke, that might as well be equal to brand suicide…

So Funimation’s September stuff is sort of up on their website . Until they show up on Rightstuf can’t be 100% certain if it’s final ,but if it is that is a lot of essentials sets .

Either they took it all off already, or it’s not showing in mobile Chrome. The furthest away set it’s showing when I look up the Funi store is Danganronpa 3, which releases in August.

Looks like Funimation needs a copy editor too.

It’d be nice . Guessing this is because of the Olympic’s next year .

I’m wondering if we will see less fan service and odd strange anime/manga titles the closer we get to them . Japan seems to be trying to I’m not sure if hide the neon skeletons in the closet the closer we get ,but it fits in my head .

@MaouSadao not forgotten about the New Coke . I mean I did forget yesterday . I’ll taste it this afternoon after I get done with lunch .

Edit:

So I drank it today .

The taste is like someone trying to make a imitation Coke using a Pepsi as a starter base . It’s got a hint of coke flavor ,but it’s very faint and it’s not the full flavor . Like they used part of then changed the rest to replicate another soda ,but give you that it’s a coke yet not really feeling . Can certainly see why people were flipping out as this was not something to replace the original with ,but to add to the brand as a cousin . I can see why they did the release like this now to . I think unlike Ecto-cooler the retro hype would have been dead quickly .

It came from my closet !
It’s Prefectural Earth Defense Force !
I believe I have another sealed copy floating around . Might be Battle Angel though .
I think this may have been one of the lowest DVD runs ADV did next to Dunbine 11 and 12 .

Ask someone to not spray something because it causes me to itch and sneeze . Get “It’s natural .” . What does that matter if I’m allergic to it ? :thinking:

I sent it right back with a screenshot of the issue that’s STILL THERE. My first thought was that it had gone through the rotation and had been taken down, but nooooo…

They are not the best company when it comes to actually reading what your saying and/or looking at pictures in emails . To be fair though most of the Anime companies are not great at email . Some suck at phones to .

Can anyone get into Anime News Network or Crunchyroll this morning? I can get into all the other websites I frequent, just not those two. Been trying for over an hour now.
