    The Anime Thread

    I'm so pre-emptively angry at how much time they're going to dedicate to Zenitsu daydreaming or swooning over Nezuko in the anime. Goddamit. They should be imprisoned. They're masters of their craft. They create these crack addicts with their timeworn anime secret sauce, then drip feed the good stuff over the course of decades. I was actually listening to a podcast about the economics of anime/attempts to offshore it, and the shortage of artists, and how the whole production process is completely different to TV shows/films.

    Cricket 2.0

    Dead ball in the IPL final. Gill hits for 6, going to be short and caught. Hits the spidercam rope, fielder adjusts to catch it. Not seen that before.
  10. I tend to disagree. It's calling a spade a spade. I think any suggestion linking Rayner's comments and this are tenuous, and are incomparable to Trump and the raid on the Capitol building, for example.
