Q: Anime - Tv or Movie

Lively LifeI am looking for an anime but I cannot remember the name of the show or movie. She is blonde with blue eyes and is looking for her father or mother by getting answers. I remember the opening scene where the blonde girl and man who has brown-dark hair who looked at each other just a moment, they w...

@Gallifreyan some of the artwork with that is.....creepy
or unnerving. not sure of the right word
might have something to do with the...
In aesthetics, the uncanny valley is the hypothesis that human replicas which appear almost, but not exactly, like real human beings elicit feelings of eeriness and revulsion (or uncanniness) among some observers. Valley denotes a dip in the human observer's affinity for the replica, a relation that otherwise increases with the replica's human likeness. Examples can be found in robotics, 3D computer animations, and lifelike dolls among others. With the increasing prevalence of virtual reality, augmented reality, and photorealistic computer animation, the 'valley' has been cited in the popular press...

@Memor-X I don't think it's that actually. I think the issue with that image is the eyes. They're angled a little too far into the corner, which aside from the usual problems also makes the pupils harder to notice, which isn't helped by the fact that the iris doesn't contrast enough against the whites. It makes her eyes seem empty and soulless, esp. in the thumbnail. I think the rest of the image is fine
@Tonepoet possibly. i do find i can't really look at their faces sometimes
@Memor-X I'd point out that boobs aren't everything, but I'm in the wrong company for that sort of comment to have the intended effect. =P
@Tonepoet i didn't mean it like that. i mean that while i want to look at their faces something about them makes me want to look away
in that image for the most part i don't even notice them unless i seek them out, even then it's just a glance

5:48 AM
@Memor-X what is this
@Darjeeling touhou i think
first frame the fox girl and the one next to her look like Touhou characters
and quite sure the guy is Rinnosuke Morichika, like the only guy in Gensokyo
with the reception to reader-kun who mainly stars in h doujin
how's thing anyway @Darjeeling
been playing a random game where I run a school with bunch of girls fighting zombies and other school for a while
mobile game
@Darjeeling fighting zombies and other schools? don't the schools have a bigger problem like the zombie apocalypse currently occurring
have you voted in the election yet @Darjeeling?
6:20 AM
@Memor-X the zombies don't really attack you tho, they just wander around the school peacefully and we are the one that attack them
@Memor-X yea changed my mind couple times, but I already vote.. uh, two
@Darjeeling i was changing my mind before i voted. both i believe would have made good mods
6:39 AM
@Dimitrimx morning, how's things?
@Memor-X fairly good, how about yourself?
@Dimitrimx good. completed a script which downloads my website's wiki. once i create the reverse i can then manage my wiki on my offline WAMP Server and just run this script to update the one on my website
ohh, thats pretty nice
7:13 AM
@JNat morning, hows life?
Pretty good; yours?
Fairly good as well
Gently awaiting the result of the elections ;)
8:14 AM
@Memor-X Identifying it as Touhou is a little vague. Those are almost certainly Touhou characters, but I am almost certain that Zun would not sanction a kick to the crotch in authorized work. It's not quite like South Park, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Family Guy or even (insert harem based anime here). What doujin is that, if you're at liberty to say?
I'm writing some tiny code to instantly give me the name of winner at the moment elections finalize
@Avery One of these days, you're going to have to code a program where the only four characters are G, O, L and F.
@Tonepoet meh
it's as simple as "echo 'Dimitri mx'" tbh
Good to know people have faith in me so far :)
8:21 AM
does anyone own a mac?
or can boot macos10.9+
i have lots of large images that i need to optimize and compress but this app only supports mac
@Gao Seen this?
Cool stuff.
@Gallifreyan the windows version suck, and the web version timeout after 120s
win version saves only 10% max, but the web thing can save more than 50% easily
linux version haven't been updated in like 7 years
or i'll have to use irfanview's batch command or something else
actually i'll give that a try now
a shame that cool stuff doesn't have a windows version
> python2 runElection.py -r TextReport MeekSTV ase.blt | grep Winner is | awk '{print $3}' | tr -d .
Just need to do some more magic and it shall work
8:40 AM
well I'll go to sleep
Works as intended
Good night @Avery
this should handle it
lol ok, seems irfanview is just as good as imageoptim
My hero
9:16 AM
Morning tosh
zZzZ ~
Hows life
hi tosh
so busy T_T
i started playing pokemon go again
i caught lugia :)
9:31 AM
@ToshinouKyouko wasn't that the first raid boss....thing?
@Tonepoet oh that, i have no idea
it was a random image i saw
sorry to dissapoint
@Gallifreyan this one i don't really find creepy or anything
@Gao are they all png and jpg images?
@Avery aside from the hacking there is a government warning on home releases indicating that they shouldn't be used for public screenings
@Memor-X Eh, I can't be too disappointed, since I'm not the person who originally requested the source for it. I just pointed it out because I figured the fact that it was a Touhou image should be made sufficiently obvious by Tewi's presence. I mean, she's one of the characters from the first three Windows entries into the series, which I believe should be the most recognizable core set.
well it is copyright infringement
all DVDs etc you buy have a legal text on them
@Tonepoet which one was Tewi?
basically prohibits public screenings without prior written approval
9:45 AM
@Memor-X The one who delivered the kick.
@Avery yeh more or less
@Tonepoet ahhhh. i had no idea who she was. when i first saw the image i didn't realize it was Touhou until i saw the 2 girls in the first frame then it clicked that the guy being kicked was Rinnosuke
is Rinnosuke his first or last name?
sounds like a last name
@Memor-X I don't even know to be honest. I have the full names of many characters memorized, including Hong Meiling, but he's not among them because he's relatively rare even in the fanworks.
@Memor-X yup, group battles
@Memor-X yes, but i'm turning them all to jpg
9:52 AM
@ToshinouKyouko so does everyone get a chance to catch it or is it first to catch it gets it?
@Memor-X Hmm, oh! I didn't notice Ran and Yukari Yakumo. They're even more (in)famous, but I suppose I was too distracted by the obvious distraction.
@Memor-X you all beat it together, then you all get a chance to catch it individually
will have to resize some images to cut down file size
@Gao have you looked at tinypng? if you have a drop box account you can save them strait to that
@Tonepoet at first i didn't notice that. i thought he was getting clashed or something
@Memor-X It took me a moment to realize what exactly happened as well, but that panel is certainly the focus of the page.
9:57 AM
i want something i can specify a minimum jpeg quality and a maximum file size, and will auto resize when needed
@Gao oh....hmm, no idea then
tiny png can reduce file size by getting rid of alot of the crap meta
@Memor-X i'm almost done with it using irfanview
i set a limit of 2MB
but most are under 1MB
i generally see size reductions between 70-90% of the original size with no reduction of quality
@Gao isn't it better to use full size?
@Darjeeling not possible to get it below 2MB for some 6000x6000 images
unless i set the quality to be very low
now that thumbnail feature is gone
i have to post the original image
10:02 AM
we used to have 10 MB image, so we have thumbnail, but with thumbnail we also can see it full size. I don't think reducing it without providing the original image is a good idea
well, for me at least :p
^ that's about 1 MB and with Tiny PNG i can reduce it down to 200 kb
@Memor-X Fate finally figures out how to kill Nanoha through copious amounts of blood loss. 'Tis almost a shame she no longer has a reason to do so by then.
@Tonepoet lol that's true
10:08 AM
who is that
@Tonepoet i actually can't wait for the 3rd because we're finally going to see the Material Girls in action
@Ikaros well in a way she is happy in the end and i suspect if the story continues and Gen Urobuchi doesn't fuck them over Homura's fears wont come true
after all Madoka says it's no ok to break the rules but she did that herself, she broke the rules of the universe
I guess yeah :)
@Memor-X To be fair though, Kyubei probably doesn't even know if it's even possible for Homura to feel anything, except maybe for hatred towards him.
She seems so detached from any sense of emotion throughout most of the show, but she is motivated to kill him.
10:16 AM
@Tonepoet yeh because Homura being more emotional was in terminated timelines and Madoka is the only person who sees those at the end
10:51 AM
^ By one named spicybara.
@Gallifreyan reminds me of one of the twins in Nier
grrrrr, Tokyo Tattoo Girls is available for pre-order but Shopify Checkout is down for maintenance
@Darjeeling Image not found?
ye I thought so.. I guess I have to upload image from pixiv
10:59 AM
@Hakase others looks fine to me tho
this userapi never works for me
only if I click the image
no probs here
11:00 AM
it's a hotlinking problem
@Darjeeling 403 Forbidden you dirty hotlinker
which is what should show up
k lol
well it could be worse. my brother once hotlinked and rather getting the image or a 403 error the image was replace with a low quality image of some naked guy stretching his anus open so wide my brother side you could stick you whole foot in there
@Memor-X o_0
11:03 AM
which is why i am always careful with my image uploads
@Hakase Are you at work? Do they block Vk?
last thing i need to do is see that myself or expose anyone here to such a horror
it is her
lolified grown up
as opposed previous images
11:06 AM
in case if you are wondering why i posted that video, well it's about trouble caused by Harmony Gold, the studio who did Robotech
Harmony Gold is a real estate developer, motion picture distributor and production company, based in Los Angeles. It was founded in 1983 by Egyptian-born Frank Agrama and is managed by his daughter, Jehan F. Agrama. The company began by selling broadcast rights from Paramount Pictures to the Mediaset media conglomerate. It is best known as the distributor of the controversial Shaka Zulu miniseries and for various anime series, notably Robotech. The company worked closely with Intersound, a Los Angeles-based post-production recording studio, managed by Frank Agrama's son, Ahmed Agrama. They were...
@Darjeeling it's cute. now we need her being cuddled with Ristu for more cuteness
@Darjeeling Protag of Grand Order. in the anime his name is Ristuka however in the game he can be a girl so Ristu, like Mio's Wifey in K-On
@Gallifreyan yep, bumblebee
11:18 AM
@Darjeeling I posted the author :D
5 mins ago, by Gallifreyan
Ok, I need someone with a clear head to look at this post and tell me if it's really NSFW.
Second time one of my posts is flagged as sensitive.
Grow a spine, people.
@Gallifreyan i can't see how it's NSFW
they are fully clothed, not in bikinis
Of all the stuff in Sunstone, this is the least racy it gets.
wait, with the bottom right image is there anything that could be NSFW in the border?
Girls are NSFW, ya know
@Memor-X Pfft.
Well, maybe. Depends on how close one looks.
And how one chooses to interpret it.
I guess that border doesn't really have to be there.
Poof! It's gone.
That's weird though: I had previosuly had this post marked as NSFW, but I flagged for review and it's not longer NSFW.
I should post something really racy for a change.
On Tumblr, that is.
Mwahaha, no longer NSFW!
11:45 AM
@Gallifreyan I want to know if it was original or fanart
12:14 PM

12:40 PM
@Gallifreyan there's no way i could have that as my work space
I wouldn't mind.

Q: A shoujo manga about a guy with long bangs and glasses and a girl that likes him in middle school

PapaHHThe manga that I'm talking about has a long title (if I remember correctly). The story starts with the MCs being in middle school. The guy sits at the back of the class, has kinda long bangs that cover his eyes (black hair), and wears glasses. The girl sits in front of him and I think they were d...

@Dimitrimx burning
@Dimitrimx title?
1:56 PM
@Hakase Would suggest migrate to main, and lock it. It doesn't get updated all that often, and as you also stated, neither do we really want to maintain it. — Dimitri mx 16 mins ago
@JNat what do you think, can we migrate that list to the main site and lock it?
@Gallifreyan no, I'm in Russia and it's weird here in general
@Dimitrimx yen, a google result didn't show anything consistent. hell i even got Iri from Fate/Zero
had to bounce back home to find that my pc's bios has an option to boot back up after power loss
turns out I could have had it enabled all this time since 2009
better late than never
@Hakase I thought Vk et al would work well in Russia. At least last I visited.
@Hakase to be honest locking it seems a bit extreme, maybe auto protect
@Gallifreyan it's probably disabling hotlinking in RU exactly because too many russian smartasses decided to hotlink images from vk
@Memor-X what's that?
2:01 PM
@Hakase well normally a question is protected after so many spam/offensive answers. rather than wait when it gets migrated make it protected right away
Protected questions have the additional restriction that new users are not permitted to answer the question. Unlike locked questions, they can still be edited, commented on, and voted on. You can even vote to close them.
@Hakase :'(
Wait, why?
I think lock would be a better fit. But maybe closing it works 2.
@Dimitrimx and that's what i would still like to do, edit it. already we do need to remove the Aniplex link since it now leads to nothing
it would be like a canonical Q/A
@Memor-X we don't need any new answers and we don't wanna have to edit it too often, so I think we should disable editing for low rep users at least
or maybe just disable all editing and fuck it
coz it's not our job to google "stream attack on titan english dub"
2:06 PM
I guess the real question is, do we want to actively maintain a list of legal sources? Or just stick it out As is.
I don't think it's too hard to find legal sites for watching specific anime
I doubt it will require edits often, especially looking back at the edit history.
also people aren't googling for sites, they're googling for titles
because.moe always finds legal sources based on titles reliably
and when you search "watch mononoke" you find a site which has it
google doesn't give you sites that don't have things (most of the time)
in any case, finding such sites for users is out of our scope
it's "shopping advice" type questions
2:09 PM
Historical lock. Think that fits it best
@Memor-X gotta review all those links, edit it one last time, add a "how to google for where to watch something" and lock it for good
2:30 PM
Q: Can we expect Saki anime's sequel?

V. CourtoisSaki anime is a thing. It comes in three parts : Saki; Saki: Zenkoku-hen; Saki: Achiga-hen episode of side A, produced by Gonzo. It follows the plot of the anime written by Kobayashi Ritz Saki, that is actually ongoing. My concern is that the anime stopped a long time ago. At that time, I suppos...

My favourite artist posted a new art, but i'm not sure if it's acceptable.

@Hakase I'd defer to the community and mods; around to help with anything they need done and can't do once a decision has been made, though :)

Q: 2017 Community Moderator Election Results

Shog9Anime & Manga's 3rd moderator election has come to a close, the votes have been tallied, and the new moderator is: They'll be joining the existing crew shortly — please thank them for volunteering, and share your assistance and advice with them as they learn the ropes!

Q: Where Can I sell my Anime Art Cel

Rob Rach Schilling My original shipped from japan Ponyo Art Cel has never been removed from the protective casing except to take this photo. I have listed it on eBay and had no takers. I was just wondering if anyone knows of a dealer or website that would buy my Cel?
