Noticed there's a Chrome extension VPN thing for Crunchyroll that unblocks the US content :toot:

Boku no Hero Academia Season 3 is apparently 25 episodes! :wub: :mrgreen:

Judging from that and the pacing of the first two seasons I'm expecting it to end around chapter 120-121 with a tease of what's to come.

Couldn't think where else to post this as it doesn't deserve it's own thread.

I have some family visiting from Canada in a couple of weeks and one of the young'uns is into Japanese stuff, anime, manga and the like. Is there anything in London anyone here has been to that might be of interest to someone like this. They're pretty cheap so anything free or not too pricey would be really good.

Cheers

There used to be a TokyoToys in the Trocadero, but it closed down a couple of years ago. Next best thing I can think of would be Chinatown.

If you want cheap then it's going to be a struggle, but a fun place to go to as a nerd is forbidden planet. There's also Gosh in Soho.

Started watching Fullmetal Alchemist yesterday and it seems fairly decent so far.

Only seen four episodes though do don't know if it retains this level of quality.

I'd highly recommend making sure it's the Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood version you're watching. It's an almost perfect adaptation of the manga and the quality is great throughout.

Its not, should I switch to that version?

What's the major difference between the two?

The original series was running alongside the manga and eventually outpaced it. Instead of dropping filler it just branched off to its own thing.

It's not bad, it's just kind of dumb since plot points that are up in the air are just guessed at.

Brotherhood follows the manga and so has the time to explore the points properly, introduce more characters to explain things and is generally a more solid experience.

I could never bring myself to watch Brotherhood. The movie, Conqueror of Shambala was just so bad I never went back to the series.

I'm watching the second season of Himouto, it's pretty good.

Just seen ep4 of Brotherhood, that was surprisingly dark.

Especially the end bit.

Well, your top two are fine at least.

Maki > Umi >= Eli > Kotori > Honoka > Rin > Hanayo > Nico > Nozomi

Every Love Live! girl shipped and then those ships ranked with explanations:

1. Zuramaru x Yoshiko -- Best Sunshine girls.
2. Maki x Nico -- Best School Idol Project girls.
3. Ruby x Ria -- Best actual love story.
4. Nozomi x Eri -- They carry SIP S1.
5. Riko x Chika -- Actually said "I love you".
6. Hanayo x Rin -- Solid mid-tier ship. A bit undercooked in the anime but better in School Idol Festival.
7. Kotori x Umi -- They have to go together, they are basically Honoka's parents. OK characters, I like Kotori more than I like Umi.
8. Dia x Seira -- There is a few-seconds-long scene in S2E09 where they bond and that's good enough for me.
9. Mari x Kanan -- Hagu?
10. Honoka x Tsubasa -- Rivalry too-friendly.
11. Erena x Anju -- Every aidoru must be shipped.
12. You x Uchicchi -- Childhood friends who refuse to confess end up crying into their aquarium mascot fursuits. A life lesson.
