The OP lied to me
Good, funny. See: any otaku reference in SZS
An anime expressly set in Akihabara with antics thereabout is anything but a "light parody". It's as in-your-face with its humorless self-referential bullshit as it can possibly be
Those are too broad. And not Akiba related enough. Maids and figures and some other electronic thing is more likely. An episode about kebabs is more likely than anime or manga generally. Vidya was kind of covered this episode.
The amount of genuine representation of legit otaku hobbies kept bringing Genshiken back into my mind. Only solidified more after the fighting game episode. Surprisingly enjoying this show.
Like what for example?
I don't see a single anime from these last 20 years that did the same thing as Akiba's Trip.
SZS and Gintama parodied everything and not specifically otaku hobbies, Genshiken was more specifically about anime otaku and it was almost as much romance as comedy, NHK ni youkoso was more about the hikkikomori way of life, and so on.
>Aoi Yuuki big bad this week
>Ayana Taketastu big bad last week
>No Petit Milady ED
YA BLEW IT
I am still hoping Aoi and Ayana appears as themselves later on.
>Aoi Yuuki is genderbent Daigo complete with EVO moment #37 reproduced in SFV
My expectations were below bedrock but this show has a unique charm it brings each week. It's also pleasant to hear Earphones still surviving.
Tornado arcade playing reminded me of Arcade Gamer Fubuki, which is a pretty obscure reference nowadays, all things considered.
This episode really elevated the show for me above most recent "us otaku rite" shows, though Genshiken is still the best of all time.
Thought it was the same thing but another anon said it originated in Game Center Arashi, which Arcade Gamer Fubuki is a spin off of. Both the tornado and the fire.
Yeah, I should have looked further into it rather than taking the post at face value. Still, I'm surprised they threw an Arcade Gamer Fubuki reference in.
Also, why did Arisa have to be T. Hawk? This is SFV, at least go with Karin. Even with how poor of a character he is, I have bad memories of getting dunked as Seth.
They're gonna need to get with the times of meme apparel very quickly, they're still on the cat leggings.
Well, it's a spin off in a sense since, although it started as a standalone series that just had references to Arashi, they managed to actually include Arashi himself officially later, and the animated adaptation features him in the very first scene.
Mashiro is cute.
Is this girl ever going to be an actual character?
I'm not looking forward to this guy's episode, he creeps me out.
GET TO THE HALKO-CHAN ED
I'VE BEEN WAITING 10 YEARS FOR HER TO RETURN
This is a great example of the series humor.
What the fuck is that animal thing in the background on the left?
The golden age of 3S is over, man. It's time to move on. Isn't Ultra dead now too since most mainstream pros have moved on to SFV too?
I blame the attention hungry FGC whores who are desperate for E-fame to the point where they're helping awful games thrive when if they claimed to loved the franchise half as much as they claim too they'd be pushing something better that could use attention
That and tournaments. Tournies are going to switch to the latest installment (even if there are side tournies for older games) as their mainstays to pull in an audience and pros need to hop on that bandwagon. Forget 3S, I already miss Ultra at this point. Season 2 better have some incredible additions with these new characters.
Arcade Gamer Fubuki is entirely about it. High Score Girl too if you want manga.
And just realized she is one of the main heroines in AT Festa, iirc this is the first time a character from another entry makes a guest appearance in the series.
>it's SFV episode
i'll wait until Commie replaces the screens with SF4
I just watched the first episode. I like this guy. He takes things in stride
You mean 3S? How else are they going to appropriately replace Daigo whooping Justin Wong's ass with parries into super? Unless they find Evil Ryu footage of him chimping out with axe kicks and FADC.
I went in expecting Earphones service and maybe some decent ecchi, but it's managed to deliver on all fronts. One of my favorites this season so far.
14 is a lot of fun. I like it a lot. But Rev2 looks cool too, and Baiken's back. Fuck that is a touch call.
Well assuming you have Rev1 already Rev2 is gonna be cheaper so there's that to consider
By Grabthar's hammer, by the suns of Worvan, you shall be avenged.
Love that movie
if these sunglasses work how they look and I think they work then I seriously want a pair
yeah. The reason why it works so well as a parody is because they made it a good movie itself before anything else. It stands alone without any Trek knowledge but that knowledge will add an extra layer. Everything is played completely straight and there's no real look to the audience and wink moments.
It showed how people are passionate about these things.
>And it is about to shit on the PC MUSTARD RACE next episode.
Actually yesterday I learned about M.2 PCIe drives. Still don't know whether I need it or not.
It's self aware and not afraid to take a jab at some silly things *Cough Wesley* but it's all very affectionate.
It's not LOL Trekkie what nerds it's "Hey Trek is a lot of fun and it brings a lot of people together as fans"
Thanks for the recommendation anons.
Yeah, sorry for being off topic. Anyway what game is she playing here?
Looks like a 2D dungeon crawler like Faxanadu
Tekken. On a famicom? What are you new?
A lot of games used that kind of health bar line up. It's not a fighting game only tight deal.
You could be right, but the middle of the top UI looks too close to a round timer to me. My problem is the only games I have played with UI like that are things like tekken, so I have tunnel vision right now.
I'm actually in a shit situation where I have for SATA slots and already have four drives so it's not a waste. Basically, it's perfect for the system SSD, since there are no cables, easier to place, etc. And the prices aren't that high nowadays.
Sorry to get off topic, but Alan Rickman was just so, so perfect for that role. To be able to put so much disgust, disdain, sarcasm and defeat into one line and sell it is a work of genius.
He will be missed.
It doesn't have to be anything sexual though. Sniffing bodily smells is a natural way to check health and diet since dawn of time. Social mammals (like humans) are genetically programmed to check each other within their group. This way they can detect potential threats (poisoned food, sick members) and also state of their group. Think of sniffing each other as a way of honest (because animals can't lie through a bodily smell (except humans)) communication where bodily smells are words, and nose and tongue are "ears". So what you see is her, listening to Tamotsu's honest feelings.
Don't steal my joke, you double niwaka.
I wish they said something to her about it
