    My guess would be Apple being "brave" and making the next iPhone wireless charging only.

    Technically when I watched the original Naruto in around 2008 on TV. But my weebdom really began with Gurren Lagann in 2013, followed by Code Geass and Soul Eater.

    Nah. I personally don't see the need for it at all. Seems like too much of a hassle for not that much reward. Bruteforcing takes a very long time, it's hardly a concern. If a site you're registered gets pwned just change your important passwords. Takes 15 minutes at most, depending on how many you have to change.

    Really my only issue is that they dropped the audio jack for the 6T and presumably future ones.

    Torrents. I don't like streaming sites, they're not as convenient as having it on my PC available at any time.

  7. Comment on Initial D. What do you think? in ~anime

    It has a lot of problems, but god damn do I love the Eurobeat soundtrack and ridiculous racing tactics that are used to justify a 10 year old (at the time) Corolla beating 300+ horsepower sports cars.

    Just saying that it's hypocritical to ban anime girls that look underage but be fine with real girls that look underage. But fair enough, it is whataboutism.

    Death Road to Canada is a fantastic little rogue-lite that you should definitely check out.

    ??? Hearthstone is a card game, hell yeah, they have a huge benefit.

    There are some microtransactions but they're rare and don't give much of a benefit most of the time.

    I don't see how anyone can support this ban when /r/fauxbait is allowed to stay.

    I thought it was pretty evident, but maybe having extensive experience with reddit has helped.

    A lot of the time Fansubs are better, tbh. For instance, Crunchyroll didn't sub Symphogear's songs initially, while Commie had them subbed. (And Crunchyroll didn't bother with the fourth season at all, leaving everyone with no option but fansub)

    Fansub also releases when the show releases, meaning you don't wait months/years after release when Netflix has bought the rights to it.

    Yet another team based, hero shooter, battle royale, online only game. Hard, hard, pass.

    Binged Inuyashiki. Honestly, I don't know what to think. Certain parts were really great but it also felt rushed - story wise and production wise.

    Also, this is probably a very typical complaint, but looking at a half naked 50 year old isn't my cup of tea. The artstyle certainly didn't help.

    Another one I watched recently is Black Lagoon. Really liked it, this kind of self aware edginess is great. Though it felt like the plot went nowhere, not that that just establishing the city and telling disconnected stories about it is bad - just felt like there could have been more there.

    Reception of it tanked, but the game isn't even out yet. Most likely it'll be successful.
