Speaking of Wee Hughie, it's so weird seeing Jack Quaid play him after I've read the comics. Got nothing against Mr. Quaid but god I do miss that short grumpy scotsman.

I've been reading the The Boys comic from 2009 and I gotta say its a lot better than people give it credit for. Sure in comparison to the show it might not have a lot going for it but I really don't think the two are even comparable. The comics are edgy and gross but thats sort of the whole point and it never tries to be more than that. Quite different from the show thats more emotionally driven and "deep". Love them both but you definitely can't go into one expecting the same thing from the other. I hope they make an animated show that stays 100% faithful to the comics because that episode of Diabolical with Billy and Wee Hughie was really fun. :badbone:

I've never read the comic book, but just started watching The Boys the other day while sick. It was cool. Homelander is the kind of character that makes me laugh a lot, he's such an hypocrite, a murderer, cunning, but still in the pocket of his female boss... I've yet to finish the first season (8 episodes, that's just enough short for me, imagine if series were 20+ eoisodes a season still!) but I'm pleasantly surprised. Protagonist is a bit annoying, but mostly because his jokes and anthics remind me of myself, lol
The new bcs episode was wild. It was so strange to see Kim like that, she almost reminded me of Skylar. I watch the show with my dad and he says she and Gene are gonna run away together. Personally I think one of them will go to jail, or worse. I guess we'll find out in 5 days.

I really liked that montage, but in an infuriating way. It was deserved, it was grim, though in real life I honestly can't say it's this bad, because a normal person would get used to live a normal life (in general), a special one like Kim wouldn't, it's like assassinating her character altogether. I honestly wish she doesn't appear in the finale a là Melphy.

I really enjoyed the new episode. But please don't post unmarked spoilers for the show! Many folks have probably not seen it yet! :magni:

I don’t know what people are smoking but that new Predator movie sucked so bad i turned it off halfway. I immediately put the original on to cleanse my pallet

Unfortunately I do think the bar is very low nowadays... Most new stuff is unwatchable to me.

There's a new predator movie?

I haven't watched it yet, but I was generally hearing good things about it! I'll have to approach with caution. :schnoz:
I watched the Elvis movie yesterday. My mother was tearing up at the end, as she lived through Elvis' untimely passing. I told her I could relate, the whole thing reminding me of Kentaro Miura despite all the differing circumstances.

That's grief man. When my gramps died, I felt the same, "why him? someone else should have died!" but, I guess that's asking too much, he was 94 years old! Same with Peart (why didn't he announce another world tour, I only went to see them perform once when I was so little, it's unfair! etc) With Miura, it was weird... I remember I didn't feel anything at first... deep down I wanted it to be a sick joke, or misinterpreted news story... like he was at the hospital alive, or something... it was so sudden... it's not like I miss Berserk per se, I miss Miura's Berserk and thus, I miss him, he was a great man, and through his manga, I got a chance to glimpse at a part of his soul, so to speak; everyone did, and when I listened to everyone's reaction to the matter... it was so heart-breaking, I understood just after finishing that podcast, that the end of an era concluded, or to put it bluntly, that I was devastated given how it happened... :judo:

That's life, my friend. I never knew my grandparents; two died years before I was born, and two when I was too young to remember them. As for Miura, I think your description is spot-on, and I felt more or less the same.

Pretty much. And that's terrible, you not knowing your grandparents, usually they are cool. I only had my mom's, my dad's also died before I was born. But both my living grandparents accompanied me for more than two decades... I miss them, but at the same time, I'm glad they didn't suffer anymore, they were simply too old. :shrug:Or I guess that's how I still cope with their passing's, dunno.
It's been a while, but I just re-read the scene where Mule meets Griffith for the first time, and I got chills all over again. Millenium Falcon is just so fucking amazing.
YouTube has become unbearable with its excessive ads. I'm trying to listen to a symphony while I work and it keeps being interrupted every minute or two with an advertisement, sometimes an unskippable one on top. Ugh. (Yeah I know I can use adblock but that would mean switching to the browser instead of the app. Meh).

The symphony, for anyone interested:

Same, though sometimes I don't find myself getting to rip or downloading that many new albums...

Yeah I should store music on my phone, but I'm way too lazy LOL

But with the way YouTube is going, I'll have to change platforms soon anyway.
Been a really long time since I logged in here. Might as well take the chance to just say that I overall liked 365/6 and am willing to view pre and post tragedy as two different entities sharing the common thread of a connected story. I trust Mori to not screw this up. There was a difference, for sure. But it wasn't what i'd call bad.

Things would be simpler if Hakusensha had chosen to present it as a separate but related series, instead of a direct continuation without a clear demarcation.
This year is flying by. Life is going well and there is much to be thankful for. Hit up Florida in March. My lady surprised me with a dip in the water, swimming next to manatees. Took my daughter to knotfest and plan on a road trip to Chicago for Rammstein. Made a fun sign from fence pickets. Linked in the comment below.
You know what word i really can’t stand now? “Content”

There's so much content out there that it's hard to find something you'd be content with. Decision paralysis ^_^

Piggybacking on this idea, I cannot (for the life of me) stand it when someone makes a Berserk-related post and calls out to anyone reading in this way "Hello fellow strugglers" or "Hello strugglers" ... that word - strugglers - within that context = 1000% cringe.

A thing of nightmares would be to log into the board and find every post/ topic on here start with that sort of messaging - THE HORROR!

As a new Berserk fan, it's almost unfathomable to me how long Berserk had been running. I was looking at the episode release schedule on the forum, and found out that Guts left the Hawks 28 years ago today.

That's the cover date, in truth the episode were he left came out 2 weeks before! :slan: But yeah, Berserk ran for a long time.
I can't believe that it's already 1 year since Miura has passed away. Rest in peace, Miura-sensei. You'll always be missed and never forgotten.
I’ve beaten Elden Ring three times with three different builds now. I can definitely say a Guts build is the way to go. :guts:

I did a Guts build just to try out and it basically poise broke everything, including bosses. You have to tank some hits but basically you can just spam attack and they'll be helpless sooner rather than later.

The Ashes of War breaks them even further. Royal Knight's resolve increases the damage by an absurd amount. A hit that normally does 1100 could do 3000 within the right circumstance. Lion's Claw, (Artorias/Berserker Armor swing) is another good one with its high damage and super armor. It also recently got buffed, so I would recommend it. (Not to mention it just looks awesome)
I made an order of 16 Berserk Konami tcg cards for a nice price to Grorum last week-end. The cards were commons, unco ,rare and foils. The order arrived in very good condition with all the cards sleeved and well protected.
Thanks again for the cards Kévin !
