    I did not know her, but clearly I remember clearly her roles in older anime...
    It seems she felt death coming and had enough time and will to safely stop her car. It's both a little more of a sad news, as she suffered a little more, but also proof of incredible strenght to make the right choices in the last moments of her life.

    Rest In Peace

    All the things I really like to do are either illegal, immoral, or fattening. And then: Golf.

    Conversely, if she had crashed her car (without dying immediately, ofc), someone would've reported it and she might've been saved.

    It is possible the car was reported quickly even in that case. But I see your point. What I see as a quality or strenght might have played a role in her death.

    Psychopass, or that episode in Kino's Journey anyone?

    As problematic as this is, I'm interested in seeing how this experiment works out. With the amount of uncultured behaviour going on in China (witnessed first hand on multiple occasions), this might be the only way to enforce quick results. It also explains why there are 8 cameras at bloody intersections.

    Funimation is shutting down.

    Crunchyroll is doubling subscription prices.

    enshitfication.

    I don't have a subscription to either, but wouldn't a merge of the two major actors in the field require FCC approval? or maybe it doesn't count since the field is "streaming", and anime streaming isn't distinct enough...

    anyway, unless you pay the actual creators, it's always better to pirate content.

    sig made by Itachi-y2k5, thanks, dude!
    Currently Watching: probably a show directed at 9 years old girls, lets be honest.

    You know the important distinction between Batman and me? Batman is fictional. In real life, there isn't always an alternative.

    Uhf...just saw the news that Akira Toriyama passed away.

    Kentaro Miura hurt slightly more, because his masterpiece wasn't finished yet. But this still sucks really hard.


    Write faster Oda!

    Damn, that sucks.

    Wonder what will happen to DB Super manga. I imagine they'll finish off the arc and call it there.

    As for fearing authors dying with uncompleted works, Togashi takes the spot for me with his HxH.

    edit: (combined posts into one. Could go into News or DBZ really, I just picked one)

    I love me some HxH, but I care WAY more about how One Piece ends. I don't think Togashi really knows where HxH is going to end up.

    First news I saw after waking up today

    Very sad. Toriyama made an impression on me ever since I started reading the DB-manga in school. Started drawing because of him. And enjoyed so many anime and video games he was part of.

    RIP

    "She's the only non-loli girl in the show, your honor!" will be my defense in court

    Only 68? I wonder if he was a smoker. The Japanese should be the long-living people.

    Is it weird that I don't care since I haven't consumed any DB media since decades ago?

    I feel the same way with many artists who I have lost interest in.

    Also, I hear people saying shounen wouldn't be what it is without him, but I believe civilizations create breakthroughs, not individuals. If Toriyama never created DB, someone else would've created something similarly groundbreaking.

    Yeah, but it wouldn't have been the same something. So the things derived from it wouldn't be the same.

    Imagine Naruto NOT wearing orange!

    I heard some site said he had an acute subdural haemorrhage. A nasty fall could do it.

    Not sure, I can't relate because all the people I hear about have left something incomplete - Doraemon, Guin Saga, Berserk etc.

    Toriyama was still involved with DB Super, so I will still be affected by the fact that future Super stuff wouldn't have his ongoing involvement.

    On a broader perspective though, no - I don't think it's actually weird to not care. I feel that way a lot when I watch the news and some murder case or bus crash case stays on the news for days or weeks. One death might mean the world to whoever knows them, but to the wider audience it's really just a number. People die all the time.

    I would actually enjoy Naruto not wearing orange. It looks juvenile, like Goku.

    Francis Scott Key Bridge collapses after a ship loses steering and hits a support column.

    Pretty spectacular.

    Biden apparently said the US government will look into funding the reconstruction of the bridge, but shouldn't the ship owner's insurance company be doing that? The insurance company will be paying a whole lot out of its pocket. Never heard of the site, but at least this arcticle suggests that insurance companies will be suffering losses.

    Insurance companies can pay for the bridge, but the problem is the bridge is needed back FAST. Quality and Fast means Cost is going to exceed what any insurance payout is capable of. I-695 is Baltimore's beltway.
