  Studio Ghibli Co-Founder and Legendary anime director Isao Takahata passed away at 82
Posted by: JamesYTP - 04-07-2018, 11:24 PM - Forum: Akiba Boulevard - Replies (2)

Didn't see it posted here so figured I might as well. As the title suggests sadly Isao Takahata died of lung cancer on Tuesday April 5th, 2018. He was probably best known for the mother of all animated tear jerker films ''Grave of the Fireflies'' and for co-directing about half of the original Lupin the Third series. His final film was 2014's The tale of Princess Kaguya and his career dated back to the early 1960s, which I think included work on the first ever fully colored Japanese animated feature film.

  Dragon Ball Heroes
Posted by: ShineCero - 04-07-2018, 03:28 AM - Forum: Modern INKers - No Replies

[Image Coming Soon]

Dragon Ball Heroes

Dragon Ball Heroes is the re-imagination of the Japanese arcade carddass game of the same name. First released in November 11, 2010, the series had spawned different medium based on the game; including several comics (Victory Mission, Charisma Mission, Super Dragon Ball Heroes: Dark Demon Realm Mission), ported to the Nintendo 3DS game (Ultimate Mission), events on Dragon Ball Z: Dokkan Battle (JPN) and recently became available in merchandises. 

The purpose of this fanfiction is an attempt to turn the animated introduction of Dragon Ball Heroes into a comprehensive, action-packed story, following the main protagonist, Beat, in a, rather, creative continuity (snipping from various mangas and Ultimate Mission if I felt can contribute the story somewhat and it make more impactful). The second reasoning is to expand my creative writing of constructing dynamic fighting in explicit details to push my limited descriptions further in my own stories. You can think of this creative work as a project of self-improvement. 

You do not need to watch any extra supplemental material to understand Dragon Ball Heroes, as any basic viewing of Dragon Ball (whether manga or animated format) should be sufficient. I will include sources and information as fun little tidbits things I include in the story; none of it enhanced the story at anyway but it something to add a little trivia every now and then. Thank you for taking the time to read this fun little project and I hope you enjoy what I have in store, for this story and future ones.

  General Nickelodeon Scandal (Sexual Predators)
Posted by: ShineCero - 04-01-2018, 06:44 PM - Forum: Metroham Avenue - Replies (7)

Quote:
The Disturbing Secret Behind An Iconic Cartoon


Robyn Byrd and Katie Rice were teenage Ren & Stimpy fans who wanted to make cartoons. They say they were preyed upon by the creator of the show, John Kricfalusi, who admitted to having had a 16-year-old girlfriend when approached by BuzzFeed News.

Robyn Byrd thought her plan was working when the letter from her hero arrived in the mail. It was 1994, and the 13-year-old had sent the creator of The Ren & Stimpy Show a video of herself talking about her drawings and the animation career she envisioned; she thought if she got the attention of the studio behind the hit Nickelodeon show, she might get a job there someday. John Kricfalusi’s effusive letter, Byrd said, seemed like the first step toward her dream.

She could hardly believe he’d responded. “I had built up these characters and this mythos of Ren & Stimpy in my head,” Byrd, now 37, told BuzzFeed News. “It was exciting.”

Soon, she said, she began receiving boxes of toys and art supplies from 39-year-old Kricfalusi, better known as John K. He helped her get her first AOL account, through which he convinced her he could help her become a great artist. He visited her at the trailer park where she lived in Tucson, Arizona. “I thought I was still his little cute friend,” she said. And then, when she was still in 11th grade, he flew her to Los Angeles to show her his studio and talk about her future. She said that on the same trip, in a room with a sliding glass door that led to his pool, he touched her genitals through her pajamas as she lay frozen on a blanket he’d placed on the floor. She was 16.

In the summer of 1997, before her senior year of high school, he flew her to Los Angeles again, where Byrd had an internship at Spumco, Kricfalusi’s studio, and lived with him as his 16-year-old girlfriend and intern. After finishing her senior year in Tucson, the tiny, dark-haired girl moved in with Kricfalusi permanently at age 17. She told herself that Kricfalusi was helping to launch her career; in the end, she fled animation to get away from him.

Since October, a national reckoning with sexual assault and harassment has not only felled dozens of prominent men, but also caused allegations made in the past to resurface. In some ways, the old transgressions are the most uncomfortable: They implicate not just the alleged abusers, but everyone who knew about the stories and chose to overlook them.

Can't say I'm surprised about this. What the heck is going on at Nickelodeon?

  A second Tomie analysis!
Posted by: scriptweaver - 03-31-2018, 08:31 PM - Forum: Media Room - Replies (2)

Because of how great the response was to my first tomie video, I spent the last 2-3 months making this second one. If you haven't read Tomie or Junji Ito's works, I'd highly suggest it. If you have and plan on watching this video, I hope you enjoy it.





Oh and Senpai noticed you, loopy. Thanks for the compliment.

  Facebook Acknowledges It Has Been Keeping Records of Android Users’ Calls and Texts
Posted by: ShineCero - 03-28-2018, 03:14 AM - Forum: Boogaloo Donut - Replies (9)

Quote:On the same day that the state of Illinois sued Facebook over its alleged misuse of data that allowed Cambridge Analytica to download information on more than 50 million users, Facebook confirmed that it had been collecting and storing call logs and text message metadata for millions of Android users.

Last week, one user who downloaded his data to learn what Facebook knew about him in the aftermath of the Cambridge Analytica scandal found that the company had a record of the date, time, duration, and recipient of calls he had made from the past few years. On Saturday, the tech news site Ars Technica published an account of several others—all Android users—who found similar records.

In response, Facebook published a post Sunday denying that it ever logged call or text history without a user’s permission. But it did acknowledge that it was collecting and storing these logs, attributing it to an opt-in feature for those using Messenger or Facebook Lite on an Android device. “This helps you find and stay connected with the people you care about, and provides you with a better experience across Facebook,” the company said in the post. “People have to expressly agree to use this feature.

“We introduced this feature for Android users a couple of years ago. Contact importers are fairly common among social apps and services as a way to more easily find the people you want to connect with.”

Ars Technica refuted their claim that everyone knowingly opted in. Instead, Ars Technica’s Sean Gallagher claimed, that opt-in was the default setting and users were not separately alerted to it. Nor did Facebook ever say publicly that it was collecting that information. “Facebook says that the company keeps the data secure and does not sell it to third parties,” Gallagher wrote. “But the post doesn’t address why it would be necessary to retain not just the numbers of contacts from phone calls and SMS messages, but the date, time, and length of those calls for years.”
On Monday, in response to the Cambridge Analytica scandal, the Federal Trade Commission announced it was launching a probe into Facebook’s privacy practices.

  BoogaVerse Project: Concepts and Progression
Posted by: ShineCero - 03-25-2018, 03:42 PM - Forum: BoogaVerse: Magic Ascension Arc - Replies (12)

The intended purpose of this topic is the assurance of consistency in BoogaVerse.

Once again, as stated in the Guide, BoogaVerse is an OPEN RP, but has a heavy reliance on lore. Any questions, ideas, or suggestions for the section in any way is welcome; or, this can be used as a way for approval for your thread is also a much welcome addition. 

BoogaVerse was introduced in 2016 as a way to implement the concept of Openness in terms of Roleplaying, lingering over from a previous site; however, I disagree with the concept entirely, and instead, opted for a way to bring a consistency where everything is interconnected, but at the same time, have their own separate stories. The process of creating and working on this has been brutal, but with the help of LoopyPanda and Z, BoogaVerse soon became successful of capturing the intended purpose I was aiming. Now, with your players, I wanted to push for further improvements on the section; furthermore, steer people to become better at creating stories, character dynamics, scenes, summary and sufficient in grammar!

You are not required to read every single thread in BoogaVerse, outside the BoogaVerse Guide 3.0 and the Character Box. However, before joining the thread, you’re encourage to ask important questions of the thread (some threads have a more specific setting with rules, and some are more opened in terms of purpose). 

If you had RP in BoogaVerse (even before it conception) and your thread had been deleted/moved, you can still recreate an brand new thread with information relevant to the updated rules. Of course, there is a 10 day wait of the restoration of those threads upon request. After that, you simply have to make a brand new one. 

BoogaVerse Guide Updates will be smaller for now on, mostly for updated things on the lore in the timeline; make sure when creating your thread, it consistent that, regardless of update, you won't have any need to change it.

Hey all! I'm back with a short story one-shot. This is part of a 1000-word writing exercise, so don't expect a series out of this (I actually nearly reached 3,000 words!)
I took two prompts that were generated and mashed them into one: "Your character gets married" + "your character fights kaijus for a living". Hope you enjoy it all the same knowing I slightly spoiled it.

Basically, with this approach, I took a bit of artistic liberty with it and didn't really go along with realism for this one. I kind of messed with the laws of physics/gravity but in the end I wanted to achieve a comical fantasy type of thing. I'll probably update this thread with cover art of some sort eventually.

Hope you enjoyed reading!
