Anonymous, cancer is basically your body going haywire during cell reproduction and fucking your shit up by producing stuff you don't need that interferes with the stuff you DO need. To cure someone of cancer you'd basically have to make sure every single cell in their body wouldn't go haywire ever from misfires during natural reproduction and if that was possible people would never fucking die.

Cancer's a bitch. If treatment missed even a single cell it can come back.

Worse yet is that often a tumor, because the cells are all incredibly fucked up by nature because they're ignoring or misusing all the usual DNA/chromosomal control systems, have high odds of having at least one cell by (bad) luck evolve some way to resist chemo treatments thrown at it, and if the cancer returns from that resistant cell then chemo may become useless and you're fucked. If the returning cancer is vulnerable to some kind of chemo but popped up in some organ where that chemo literally can't reach to work on (such as the brain), again you're fucked.

This happens a lot actually, which is why it's so common for people to have cancer but not die for maybe 5-10 years, because for a while it was mostly gone but then it returned in an incurable way.

It's an umbrella term for thousands of diseases really, which can all have unique ways of manifesting and needing very different treatments (if any exist - for example we are I dare say somewhat capable of treating some kinds of leukemia, but very bad at treating most liver and lung cancers).

Stopping it is and likely will remain be a long torturous process, fought bit by bit, tissue type by tissue type, mutation type by mutation type. I always cringe at the "walk for the cure" drives and such, fucking >implying any one thing could miraculously cure all types of even a specific range of it (like breast cancer).

She's nothing with her songs. Wada is a heavy classic for Japan. You got obviously large following for him on their net, and even offline with something like his song always appearing on the top of karaoke lists alongside Zankoku and non anime.

>>139787885
Yeah. Xros Wars Manga had this thing where it took a lot of influences from a ton of different sources. So you had the Tailmon and Wizarmon from Adventure, Zero from V-Tamer, and even a Ranamon.
Haven't read it in a while, but I think it ended with some sort of dimension-time warping monster so everything's just sort of mixed around, but it sort of makes sense if you read it.

No they haven't, for the exact reason that you mentioned. Your consciousness lives and dies with your physical brain and "uploading" it would just be creating a copy, doing nothing to lengthen your own life. The only way to create immortality would be to make the brain immortal, which will probably take a lot longer to figure out than humanity has left.

Last time I went to Japan it seemed like Wada was a pretty big deal. But that might just be because the tri hype was starting then I guess.

>>139792671
What? How does that change your memories? I've rewatched Adventure tons of times and although there are definitely problems with it I didn't notice as a kid that doesn't suddenly make my memories watching it when I was younger disappear or change at all.

I'm not sure, pretty sure it is as the following pic appeared in an article pertaining Wada Kouji on withthewill forums.

I'm pretty sure his official website has a picture of him wearing a Beelzebumon jacket too in one of his journals.

well I'm not a nostalgiafag as I'm willing to call out shit on old products, I already acknowledge Adventure being like that

I just rather want to keep my memories of the show fun rather than taint them with frustration.

That's just not true. I enjoyed Digimon just as much rewatching it in Japanese for the first time and I'm still enjoying rewatching it watching the Blu-Rays now. Yeah there are issues but that doesn't make it frustrating to watch or any less fun.

I know none of you will care, but in the midst of all this sadness I'm reminded why I want to be an artist. I'm an actor/musician, and seeing so many people around the world be touched, affected and moved to tears for this one mans death. It reminds me of the beauty and power that music and art can have across the world. While I'm no where near the performer he is, I can only aspire to one day have the joy and optimism he did and more importantly bring those feelings of happiness to people one day.

So long Kouji, fly along now, on our love this time.

So you're a nostalgiafag. If you weren't watching the show now would have no bearing or "taint" your memories with the show. That's just fucking retarded.

I mean nothing wrong with not wanting to watch it again, but you're definitely a nostalgiafag.

>>139792970
And they are immensely popular and basically "legends" in Japan.
>>
>>139791897
Except digimon was good. And that's something my seven year old self knew too.
>>
>>139793003
I really don't like the slog of the first half, the generic "evolve to fight" shit the early arcs had, and I feel like the stupid "card puzzle" they had was pointless

>>139793033
I think you miss my point. I recognize their faults and willing to shitpost, but at the same time I'd rather keep my fond memories of when I played a game.

Like I know the major flaws of Pokemon GSC and will be the first to critic it, but I wouldn't want to play it again. One is because as per pre-Gen V it's a chore to play and two is because I enjoyed my time playing it with my GBC that I'd rather not be let down replaying it again.

>>139792959
The singer behind Digimon Adventure's first opening, Butter-Fly.

He's pretty legendary in Japan, even among non Digimon fans.
>>
>>139793033
I guess my example was wrong.

What my point was that you usually get flavor of the month jrock and jpop being sung in karaoke too, so I don't see the point using it as an example.

Again, a bunch of people are suddenly equating him to Aniki and pals.
>>
>>139793090
No he's not legendary. Stop saying this.
>>
>>139793101
Yeah, and Wada Kouji has been the flavor of over a decade now.

Digifags, everybody.

He's certainly better then a bunch of has beens that only show up occasionally to sing shitty old mecha songs. I'd wager more people recognize him now too, given he's pretty much what they are to grandpas to the current generation.
>>
>>139793101
Your entire argument is wrong. If you honestly don't know how famous or what a symbol Wada is in Japan, then you don't know anythign on this subject. I'm sorry he's not as famous as your old Grandpa's and no one cares about them on your chinese imageboard, but stop talking like you know shit.

Fuck I haven't watched Digimon since I was a kid but even I know this.
>>
>>139793077
So basically, you're a filthy nostalgiafag?

>>139793090
Wada Kouji isn't a legend like Kagemeya and shit.
>>
>>139793157
Why shouldn't he be? Butter-Fly is pretty famous over in Japan, and the Japanese refer to him as the, "Anime singer of the immortal butterfly, 不死蝶のアニソンシンガー。"
>>
>>139793250

>>139793187

If your example was that "L'arc n ciel and Wada Kouji are flavor the month" then yes, you are wrong. L'arc n ciel's ppularity is immense and even worldwide and Wada Kouji has almost constantly been at the top of Karaoke charts since his debut.

actually it seems more like he's a one-hit wonder the more you people keep bringing up Butter-fly.

because you can't even data

also being sung in karaokes != chart topper. Those other Butter-Fly songs are considered different from the original. This is like saying Witch Doctor from the 50's (60's?) and the one in the 2000's is the same

and again, you're besmirching his name even more as you're turning him into a one-hit wonder

if this isn't shitpost, I dunno what is

also I find it hilarious that "being sung in karaokes" makes someone an icon

no nigga, you don't see Michiro Izuki songs in a karaoke yet he's an icon because of what he provided, and it is considered an honor when he sings something in your show

same with Isao Sasaki and the like, when they perform, they attract an orchestral group

You're only complaining because you were ignorant of what Goku is supposed to sound like. You watched a shitty dub when you were a kid and it imprinted on you and you can't accept that Goku sounds exactly like his intended character, a pure-natured, grown-up, yet, naive manchild.

Masako Nozawa's voice, while a tad too high pitched at times, reflects the warmth, sincerity, and character of Goku in the nuances of her performance unlike Sean Schemmel who sounds like a stereotypical Marvel/DC character. Really, if there is anyone that sounds right in English as Goku and catches his character spot-on, it's MasakoX.
