the superdelegates aren't locked in, as in even if they say they are voting for her, at the convention they can be like "nope nevermind going with Sanders instead."
This is important because it's highly unlikely that they would go against the popular vote were Sanders to win it, because it would split the party, a lot of people including myself wouldn't vote for Hillary because of such douchebaggery. And yeah just in general would be really bad for the party.
I mean it's happened before I believe, but it's just really unlikely that they would risk it.
Icarus ain't gonna be happy wit you for dis.
His boner for Hillary is massive.
Almost as massive as bucket's for Trump.
But I will take Shillary over Trumpler any day.
First off, real quick thought before I dive in with my thoughts on this pick-up... Was I the only person that was thinking they'd maybe pick up the first season at least of GATE -Thus the JSDF Fought There!-? I mean, I don't know if Sentai is dubbing it, or if they're currently working on it or anything, but if they are working on it or will, I highly suspect it'll end up on Toonami. Not tons of action every week with it, but when there is, it DELIVERS. Maybe an "extended cut" of it is coming out on BD in Japan, and that's what Sentai is waiting for. Who knows? I just hope it'll get dubbed and wind up on Toonami. Would be kinda funny if it came on around election time, since there's a lot of fantasy politics in it too... Moving on to Dimension W!
I have somewhat mixed feelings on this. For the show itself, I'm pretty hyped. I actually haven't been watching it this season on Funi, mostly because I think it's one that updates on Friday or Saturday, and between those two days, I have like, 8 new episodes of shows to watch between Funi and Crunchyroll, so this one kinda fell on the backburner.
What DOES bother me with this pickup is the "simuldub" or however you'd call it. Aside from Space Dandy, this is pretty new for Toonami. However, Funi has been doing this "simuldub" where they have the first episode dubbed 4 weeks after it airs for about 1-2 years now iirc, and it's had mixed results. For example, I quite enjoyed the "simuldub" of season 3 of Highschool DxD, and thought it was very good, even with the MC getting a VA change. But then you get situations like Prison School... Dear lord, Prison School. I religiously follow the manga ever since I watched the first episode, and love the series to death. There's nothing else like it. So, I go and give the "simuldub" a chance to see what it'll be like... And this thing had probably the biggest dissonance between the sub and dub VA that I've ever come across in anime. Like, they just decided to take the series out behind the shed and shoot it. Then, around I think episode 9 or 10, there was literal outrage across the internet because of the scriptwriter literally making up his own lines, which were POLITICALLY CHARGED. He thought he'd be clever and bring up Gamergate, and holy crap, did the internet (at least the anime forums I've viewed) explode over that. I don't think it was just the liberal changing of the script, or just the Gamergate reference, it was all of it combined.
A series that is nothing but sexualizing highschool girls (and later, the guys to an extent even) and having outrageous concepts like a prison inside a school and a guy getting stabbed in the anus by a high-heel slipping into a gutter opening, only to be bleeding profusely and be stuck with the stigma of having hemmorhoids... And they bring in stuff like Gamergate to add "humor" when the series was plenty funny already.
Long story short, I'm looking forward to this pickup if the dub doesn't take liberties, however, after the Prison School incident, which just happened within the past 6 months and didn't even have a single apology, I'm highly hesitant as to how a "simuldub" will turn out. Of course I'll be tuning in, but if they throw in ANY stupid stunt like they did with Prison School, it's being dumped.
Also, to those commenting on how this is only 12 episodes, I don't know if you know this, but the way cours work oftentimes now in Japan for anime is say, they'll have a 12-13 episode "season" for one quarter of the year, and then the next quarter the show doesn't have anything, but then another 12-13 episode "season" airs in that third quarter. So, it is possible this could get another 12 episodes come the July-August-September season.
im just wondering how in the hell this thread has almost 30k views?!
why arent these people posting?
Well I mean for a good while there was no reason to click it other than Ben kept tossing it to the top of the page with more bitching, but leaving no real reason to respond to him parroting the exact same 3 lines over and over again. This thread is the turd that keeps on turding.
