On this episode: @toomannyman @chrinkster @ponz_o @theprimetales @estrella8_

Demon. Ladies and Gentlemen, this is me, your boiler, Pamil alarm on a plack over the one only I'll show Showington, and this is the for eyes academia, and today I am with money. Hello, hello, hello, crinkle star, or Greas as still he guys, and put the Yo so cool. This episode's main topic. You we're going to be talking about streaming services. Split it of kind of reference points around anime ones and how we consume them has kind of changed the way we consume media and anime as a whole. But before that, obviously we can do our nice little news around news round up. So it's jump straight into obviously a lot of content creators have been getting their psfires and xbox one, xbox series s and series x this week, so there's been a lot of kind of new footage, lot of once a Gameplay, but kind of understands and details for a builder on both consoles. I think xbox series XS as expected. Most people kind of knew what they'll get into into ahead of time, so it's not really much up. I touch on that, but I think the inflatials come out around the piers five is been somewhat controversial also somewhat interesting. See, I think the first one we should probably discuss is that the persfive does not support native fourteen forty resolution and obviously for us, as my style, problem avid gamers. I mean that could be a big deal for some, especially kind of and the earlier doctors. So I mean I know Chris and money have bought monitors or worthing about by Monters that were kind of one thousand four hundred and forty or hundred forty four hurts kind of range. So I mean that many count but how you feel about this news that it's not a native support? I'll be a hundred percent with you. I'm not a hundred so sure how that's actually going afl for my enjoying me in the game. So even about a hundred forty four eight said, I don't know how that's going to affect my actual gameplant. Only would it because quite a few people recommended it for the next Gen. so I don't know how we using it under psfive. Is Is it going to is it going to downgrade about much? Is it going to be my game place slower? My reactions to be slower? I think it's offusal reps to some of you can on so, because I'm not too sure that. I just know that Michael Bumped Sous Brost is. What are you saying? I mean, I think ultimately it's it's quite it's quite up saying that it doesn't support forty fortyp I do understand that. Sometimes, because of just a way consoles are usually good for TV's. It go from ATP K and wouldn't be any intermediates. I remember when, before hd was really a big thing, there was nine hundred p monitors, hmm, and obviously there wasn't any content that really was made for nine Oger P. I think ultimately, for me personally, it's not really going to be a big deal. My monitors twenty seven inches and chat that size, you're not really going to be losing too much detail for the most part. Like for me personally anyway, I'm not going to be losing enough detail that I'm going to be upset about having a K monitor instead of a forkme monitor. Ultimately it's still got a very high refresh rate. The performance of the game, in my opinion, isn't going to be hindered too much. I still do plan on getting another K TV or monitor in a future but, as we know, if you want to get something that is a hundred twenty,...

...hurts plus and K, you looking at quite a bit of money to spend that this moment in time. The recommended TV I seen from most people is the LGCX, which is a fifty five inch I led TV, hundred hundred and twenty, hurts K and and it's just built for gaming really really in terms of how it's made. But again, you're looking at over a grand. You looking at about one thousand three hundred, Onezero four hundred. Not Allowed to that is steep. Is Steep. May drop down in future, but yeah, yeah, I'm not sure away. But that's the thing that brings back to the point I've obviously all talking about, is this kind of in between resolution like that. Chris said it might not be a big thing. Do we need to kind of get kind of specific gaming monitors or game and TV's that are either end of the spectrum and just had deal of it, and that kind of obviously, I think much if you mentioned it now, Chris, by terms of how does it up scale or down scale in terms of yeah, that's the time. In terms of them. Yeah, in terms of scaling, we need to know whether it's gonna up scale from ten ATP TO K or down scale from forky. It's UK evil way. What I would say is that for most people, for casual Gamers, it's not going to make the biggest of difference. Obviously some people do want the best performance out of their console, understandably, and for that you're going to need to, you know, pay a premium. Yeah, you know. I mean most people do not have K hundred twenty has TV's at the moment. Most people even have a k sixty hurts or they have something like a ten ATP hundred forty four hurts or even lesser. But I think as time passes the cost of these TV's and moneys will reduce. If you're looking at if you're looking for a K hundred forty four hurts monitor around about twenty four to se twenty seven inches, you're probably looking about eight hundred pounds anyway. So it's a sizeable investment at this point in time. So I would recommend most people do wait. If you are one of those people that wants to best the premium visuals out of your Gameplay, make the investment. It's all down to the image of individual so I mean that kind of brings me back to like a kind of question and obviously nice to say wear into the next kind of topic is, do we feel like Sony? I kind of Mugget in it for the earlier doctors in terms of the way the PS five, all the comes oct we've seen so far and the speck so far have been set out, because obviously in the next pay next news point is that we know that the psfives native. Obviously SSD memory is six hundred sixty seven gigabytes of usable storage. Obviously there's a chunkle that's taken up by the operating system, but our eight hundred twenty five, that is like Na on a hundred hundred seventy gig just gone to somebously run the console. So SSD hard drives aren't common right now. SSD Hard Ives aren't cheap right now. So you're looking at if you're looking to get a too tried about when you're ptty much praying the same prices of the console myself. Yeah, as you said, and there's not really any ssds optimized for pus at the moment. So it's it's annoying and it's not great because you would really expect, especially you know how games are probably going to be take up more memory as well because you know I'm bigger, they've got more pseudom etcetera. They're going to take them more space. It's going to be the point where you maybe this I had back on my my Psfour, just deleting games to install new games etc.

It's going to probably be the case again for the psfive until maybe and alsongs on to say as well. I don't think it's still or hard drugs don't aren't compatible well to still ps five games anyway as well. It's got the fit more game. Only it can. You can still p US four games. Still Find I'm ext one harder, but we can still pus five games. So it's going to be a bit of frustration at that in the moment. So until really sis these come down in price as well, it's going to be really annoying. I would have would have liked to have like a more story. Didn't really like like they got to terrify. I think xbox after the OS is about eight hundred and two gigs. Yeah, after the offering system take up. So yeah, it's it's owns it. It's not great. I completely agree. I don't think. I feel like they there's kind of back a bit of a weird punishment towards early adoptors and sense that if you get to place at five early one not really gonna be able to make the most of from the best features of it, unless you're you're kicked up. Obviously many of us aren't. Let me not be. I sure a must be everybody. I know Chris is obviously bulling over in the corner. I'm say too much oder that, but I mean the average, the average Tom Dick and Harry that. I mean we're made of money. I mean Christian. I mean for you had to like a little or a bottle down'm just is that? Are we good? We good, Bro Anyway. We will say is that I don't know why they didn't just go for a one term by SSD to begin with. Facts it just does like it doesn't make any sense to me. Eighty five short, odd number. It's a weird number to pick, very weird. A cost was a costom five s st something for that. Other is weird to me as well. It's the size of games. Were just increase in increasing and it's only going to get worse yet. Currently, what eight hundred and twenty five Gig I think we'll get so point where you could have two and a half games, because I called just flying up. Yeah, you can have like two and a half games and then I don't see that if you were to capture footage or get any EMIL YEP themes, Tryphi stay down screenshots as well. It's just be you want to save additional content on to the console, you're not going to have any space for that. And to not have the SSD support at launch just means that all the people who are thinking of downloading their psfour games so they can be played better, more optimized for the psfive it just not going to be able to do it. Yeah, so a tough one, I think. Obviously I'm getting to PS five and its kind of too late at this point. So I mean more my hands on the get see how much of a other pain it would be. I mean there's not many pairs five games at launched that I could sayd what about want to play and or buy? Yeah, I've got a question. A still seen as you're not primarily a Gamer, do any of these consoles appeal to you at this moment? I'm in the slighting. No, sure and sweet like. It's just as like prime said, how how many games do we even know right now that I'm going to be available in those consoles? And I think my response comes primarily because, as you said, I'm not a Gamer like that. I'll play games, but just not as regularly as maybe someone else who'd want to invest in these types of consoles. And I think at the moment now are just based on what I'm hearing and some of the discussions are been had about the recent pastiation five launch and it's bunched launch. There's been a lot of hype around that. You know, people have been excited. So I think despite the fact that persfive haven't psfive, so many haven't made these type of...

...features available, that just gives them even more that leverage because we all know they're going to introduce it later charge a lot of money to be able to allow gamers to use those features. I think that's what's allowing them to kind of get away with it at the moment and I think people just so excited they're like psfive, then there by the time it rise, I'll just be out all that. I can't do x and I can't do why you get on if you get on saying, but I'm not. I haven't been Swede yet. I know all you guys will, most of you guys go get persfive and you consoles, but I haven't been pushed or convinced enough to invest in a new console, mainly because I'm already content with the consoles that I have, which I really play. It's you got come well, we got currently so Nintendo switch. What else do I have? So I got a Nintendo switch. Still got the older we PSTWO, still works fine. Or Elf do we got? I'M gonna I'm missing one out or missing mountain one, but we use quite a lot of the old consoles we've had and I think, I think those who would be interested did and get your perside of my house would probably my brother's very good. I've enjoyous it's yeah, I feel like it's going to be interesting to kind of see the first few months of both consoles and see how they are, they play out in terms of sales. It seems like saying your ahead, but I mean you would have to see, say, Gus, the Saga Sammy, and I think that that's a interesting part in terms of say, Goa Arcades and how a lot of them have been or shutting down across many, Japan, but obviously various parts of the world. I'm not a big arcade go are in real life, but I mean, Chris, I mean I know you've obviously made mention of this poem previously. How's that? How does that make you feel? I mean, I went to arcades when I was younger, as most people did, not not often, but I did enjoy my time. They're also went to many arcades in cinemas. All right. I also say, you know your time crisis and your house of the dead and all those like dance dance revolution. I enjoyed play those games. It wasn't until we went to Japan, many was there, that you see how big the arcade culture really is, like it's it's so big, super big. Yeah, like people literally finish work, businessmen, like big, big businessmen, and go straight to the arcades and spend hours there, go home, eat and then go to sleep and get ready for work the next day. It is that big out there. I can't remember that. I can't remember the chain of the I'm just trying to think of it as well, but I know which one to talk because it Tato? Is it Tito? is its title arcades. There's a massive change, but it's chain sounds milier, for I've seen in person. I think it might be Tito Arcades. But yeah, it's really, really get this title. Yeah, and it's like one of their it's like in terms of competing, in terms of competition. It's the way in which strangers can find each other and you know, play that. You're stet fights are your Teken against all the best people in Japan. It's the easiest way to do it. So I see in Japan it's a very, very big thing, and Saga Sammy, I know, for sake of Sammy, they specialize mostly in Saga Games. I'm sure say got Arcade Games. Obviously, due to the pandemic and all sorts of other factors, less and less...

...people are going in to Ok to play games, meaning that they can't afford to, you know, rent out these spaces, because I'm sure you know, Japan's a very, very packed colls quite dense, very very densely populated and if you're having arcades, which you tend to be quite big, it probably cost a lot to burnt out and you know, throughout over the course of all their arcades in Japan, I'm sure that they're losing probably close to the millions in terms of revenue and I think, I think it's quite sad to see those things go, especially if you're one of those people who's a regular, because you have to remember it's part of some people's lives the same way, you know, you might have an after school club or a boxing club or whatever social club that you go to and then all of a sudden you here, yeah, we're going to have to shut down. It's quite as quite a big thing to take. So I think it's quite sad. I don't know what's going to happen for the future of it. I think it's been bought out. I don't know if they plan to completely change it or what else they're going to do, but we'll see. Do you think it was accelerated as all because of code? Yeah, under deafer. Yeah, because there, as Chris said, they're super popular out there and I start it myself when I went to Japan, like you'll just see the arcades packed out with just suit entire people, like it's like wow, like you finish work to head straight to the arcade and that's a motive for them. But with many things that have been in all many industry story that have been impacted by coronavirus, I think they will make a return and recover a little point in time, closing a lot the seriously agreeable in covid interesting. I think it's been a pretty suit. Yeah, I'm eving like you guys. You seem to wrap it up. We've got some small wins. Now, you know, not going to speak on politics about some small winds, but I think that obviously segways nicely in terms of like the changing climate of of Media and Games and obviously what's talk since our topic this week is around how streaming services have impacted the way we view and consume anime in particular. I think covid obviously been a change in impact for an unexpected one for games and arcades, as we spoke about Scusami. But we should talk about how change in general and streaming works. So I mean first and kind of what streaming services as a group do. Be kind of mainly use or just everyone's going then bubbaloo. Websites controll most of them. Our comment. I will not answer that question about my lay goodness, I say Amazon prime or Netflix, Goddamn word, I have I don't have. I have access to the Netflix right. I have an Amazon prime account and access to Cunty roll. Your access here, access, this acy, this is the key word of this whole discussion. Access is basically not the bill payer. Yeah, communic communal accounts, a hundred percent. Yeah. However, what I will say is that I tend to attend to sway more towards streaming services that are use regularly, so Amazon prime and Netflix of the two that I use. I don't really use crunchy roll much and most of the time, if it's not on...

Netflix or it's not on Amazon, I'll find my own way, but I will usually stick to those streaming services because the quality resolution is all a bit better. What I do find, and what most people, especially in the UK, finders that we just don't have enough access to enough anime and even when we do get access, it tends to be quite late for most of our streaming services. So, as you do, you find your own part and make your own ways and what you're flee it's not just anime too, it's Manga. It's also Manga like, Oh God, just killing me. fell out of you're killing we. Mango whould have had a similar streaming services of the control and Netflix was of a ladder. Yeah, because I have if I complete you can be on us. I have no idea how to get Manga without going to this, quote unquote, Gogoo sites, allegedly, allegedly, allegend. Literally, yeah, because I actually the shown and jump at doesn't exist. If his media doesn't exist, manger play, don't license toff. I mean whatever. We ain't shaming out, ever, so I completely miss them the last way. Second, we need. All we need, especially for Manga, is just we need the same timing, at least similar timing, with the rest of the world and similar access to the rest of the world. Most people having to use VPN's and all sorts to access high quality anime, especially on Netflix. And we know it's not just it's not just anime that we struggle with on Netflix, but it's one of those things. Yeah, show, all shows in general. It's one of the things that affects us. Yeah, like we literally only got Marie Shaw the other day and the US had it. When. When did we have to wait for that? Example, I heard one on one is on sisters, is on us. Oh Yeah, just a sister. Okay. So so let's talk with this one by one. In terms of accessibility to other countries, especially in Anime, I thought, yes, I agree completely. There for like we are like a like a ten months delay in most cases. But I think the time of delay comes from the fact that we don't get sub straight away. We really get license TPP immediately and then the dubs are what most of the kind of these content providers, such as Netflix, such as Amazon prime, would be pushing to try and get first. So that's that. I think that's why there's a delay. I'm like a lot of and may just never gets a DUB. Like some anime that I love to this to this day, I've never got a DUB inside. All right, cool, like, I think we were lucky that we've got for my alchemists base, for the mylcham is and then for mylchams Brotherhood on Netflix. I think that, I think that was Netflix understanding of damn this, this is a money maker, because I think most of that I've watched brotherhoods like avidly or properly. Have watched it again on Netflix. DRMAN. Yeah, so I feel like not pu lay, though, but drought was mud probably. I can he going back to this. Okay, I'll get to it. All right, that's a topic. To topic. I mean the topic Hare Pon late is. It is now November, the eighth, and you promised to watch it two months ago, brother, two months ago. I mean. So, okay, I felt like. But he's tat. He's watched son of Zeus, Zeus, blood of a, blood of disease, and...

...you haven't seen for metal alchemists. Let's US discuss that. It's a quick six episodes, all right, hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on. So, HMM, one of the most revered, loved anime of all time. You haven't seen it. We've been telling you to see it. It's been out since two thousand, two thousand and ten MM. But you're going to watch blood of Zeus. A poor Cansylvania, say, nay, might Canstlvani either. I see, Bros, we we didn't. We just need to hear it. He speechless, doesn't even know what to say to us. I call when I ain't got nothing. I'm got nothing. You are an embarrassment. Point that you've been on a run of bad form for the past month and a half. Manny get it is this. Wait, wait, man, fuck y'all. No, publy be stinking at everything. Reason coming. We can play firmly. I'll come on to the spot to get dragged of. Yes, yes, quest everything. One on a quick detour. What anime? What anime do you feel everyone who calls himself a fan of anime should have seen a specific one? towzers seen definite. So we'll go onto her lag. Those are first. Yeah, that round. Yeah, I definitely, definitely the first one who came to mind. So I felt like there's a few enemies that come to my head that I wouldn't say the specific one that you would have had to watch, but it's going to be a few that you should have watched. These two or three. I feel like everyone should have watched at least one of the big freeze at some point in their lives, at least one of them. Every well, saying was great with the Big Three. I know there's a specific type of anime watcher that is an into the Longhole anime. There's a lot of people who like their short six episodes stuff and whatnot, and and I personally think most people should have at least tried to watch one piece in new old bleach. See if you like it. If it's not for you, there go by. In terms of stuff that everyone should watch, I think you've got like movies like a Kira shows that for metal deaf, not stuff that's just very, very general and out there. Even even attack on tit and I feel like that's something most people should have seen an episode over at least. Yeah, agree, I think fucking signs of really become one of the mainstream was that you stood watch as well. But yeah, for I kind of up bring much. I mean I don't know about attack on Titan, but I mean, yeah, I'm in person. For me, I feel like for my l chust is probably one of the ones, because that's like nearly in everyone. I think it should be in everyone top ten in any capacy I've but I definitely again, is another one of them. Obviously the big free you should have at least watched some of it to them kind of get into it. But yeah, I mean I couldn't. Wouldn't Count Dragon wuzzy because no one really watched that and said yeah, that's mine, that's that's me watching anime sort of things kind out. Everyone actual sledges it, but I feel like those guys, we want to talk about them run. That was shown the only guys, but I thought, yeah, Dragon Wuzzy. I wouldn't really like, Oh yeah, someone says they're watching make because they watch dragon buzzy. That wouldn't be like my kind of like a statement I would make. What would you recommend for, let's say someone who wants to start watching anime but doesn't have the finances? What access to your your normal stem and services? What would you recommend they do?...

The saries, you know, you are, your friends, your Madilla trying to buy trying to buy a piece of weed from yeah, when we please. That goes shows a set up. So I'm not going to answer it, but you should know what more is, if an answer. But yeah, gonna back. And they wanted to get to library. The used to be mango, you know, and DVD's true. That's true. They still have it. They still have it. That's the shallow anime Manga sections. Yeah, we still said. I probably say you could have a look at if you do have sky. I'm have a look at film for see what they're doing. They tend to have quite a bit of animay on there. I think they have online film for as well. Also crunchy rollways like they have free content. Yeah, yeah, it's just has ads. Yeah, I'm gone countrole them. But I'm not sure about in London. But I remember when I went to Paris that I had a really, really good Manga calf that bunch of you, Mana, could you sit down and we had like a little game in area. Can quickly and games for a bit. I've Havn't seen one in London. I've heard one in London, but that will be a great ideal if there is what available to do. Well, you can just think about access options. Yeah, accessibility. Guys, you got two arms and two legash is like me. We got make it work. Cools. So obviously we spoke about streaming services. I've we Shud probably touch on that. The big meat thing, and I guess how much of an impact has dream services affected the way? I mean we can obviously on my own experiences, but were effects that we consume anime now more than anything else. You Nobody Y. DVD's normal. It's true. I mean I'll took on my kind of it because I've see I'm probably one the few ones in there that actually pays for most of them. My services of S. I've got crunchy roll. I've got no worry. Yeah, yeah, we're not just going to just skip over that comment. But you say number one most factual podcast and anyway, go again. As I saw, I think I'm on the few out of her that pays for all of my own streaming contime, streaming services. Exact, exact. Yes, I do, Bro Check your history see if I've used it. Gone Fellaw, I it so we can overlook that. You want to continue your life. So obviously I've used fun a, funimation, crunch role, obvious, up prime and I've got netflix. So there's my main kind of for go to see someone of money. Director bits here the roll be so much. Yes, I have access, you know, subscription funds, but I feel like funimation has a decent area. I think I've got a good array of sub but I feel that cruncher was is the reason why I've actually considered paying for any kind of long term subscription service. Like I'm sick and tired of, you know, when I was younger and less financially, you know, backed and go into these buggaloo sites and consume. Me Do that and it's always that pop ups and the quality was poor and I feel like the older I've got, like I can't be watching stuff in SD anymore. Like I'm not watching that. I hate seeing the big pixels. Yeah, I mean like small pixels. Fine, an Etpeople, great, great, great, hd stuff all great, but when use out all these nonsense, actual was getting like really...

...raw and raggedy subtitles about different colors and I feel like I need to consume my media like in quality is a big thing for me. I think that's why I started subscribing and consumer. That's like a like an animal, like demon, say, which is drawn so beautifully, animated so beautifully. I can't be watching that on the streaming set and seeing how like, but I'm not watching SD. That's my thing. I don't watch something in standard definition wanting high definition. I think that's the reason why I'm actually paying for sights that. And obviously CRUNCHRO has a very fast pall of anime compared to many other kind of streamings. Thats obviously kind of have to do in a ray of them to kind of get the best, but I mean, I think, I think that's important and this sa is like a one hostic all in one service, which there's not. Then you know, to kind of Sun Up to more borns. That's what I wish was the thing, because right now is this country roll, funimation, Netflix, Amazon. I don't have time to be having four, five director it's coming out, just to watch one thing. That's why I when people are like, Oh, you, you should watch this on Amazon prime, I'm like, I've I'm already paying for Netflix. I'M NOT gonna pay for extra, obviously, and I'm a working woman, but no, I don't need an extra. But it's what about competition it? I mean, I agree anyway. I mean, do you guys? I mean I'm many. You pay for controls. Reason for paying for country? Just to get similar to you. Just get a good collie enemy for me to watch, moving, considering pain for funimation. Seen. Yeah, my felt funimations. All right. I feel like it's got a nice way of DUB content on there. If you've only speak this, you can't go. But yeah, good, good quality enemies. The reason why a watch on control and pross because my sister, which is only quite a lot so instead of a tiny watched the botle. Means I'm mostly just have it for so she using my cultural account of the time, using my Netflix and Amazon prime. I can't all the time just to watch enemy for the more spot. It's just easier to do. Let's of a struggle if you want to do by any other means. Question for the non subscribers in her I'm not going to name men's, but not subscribes in her. What's like? Why haven't you gone down that path of subscribing? That what stopping your what like? You know, what do you think needs to be done? More? I subscribe. I don't know you're talking about. I sent for the non subscribe. I didn't say you bro I s around this actually end up on lay personally. Well, I didn't even names. I mean it's collar damage, Christal accident. But what do you mean? polly has got access, accessibility, access. Okay. For example, with me, I've got Netflix, I've got Amazon Prime, I've got something else, but I tend to I mean, I don't really watch that much anime these days. I tend to do when I when I can, I tend to read a lot more manger. So with Netflix, between Netflix Amazon prime, I can usually cover my grounds of what I want to watch. Sometimes my mate Eric, he watches stuff. I don't know what sets he uses. Well, he watches some stuff and when he let us happen to stumble into what he's watching, my Ma Eric, not me. But when, when that occurs, then I would watch it on those sets, whatever sats he uses,...

I don't know. It's Eric knows. But yeah, for the most part Netflix covers most of the big anime I want to watch. Everything else is covered by Eric. Yeah, that's for you. Shouts your beric shout out to air. It's got that accessibility, boy accessibility and cash tag access, but not that obviously poly that that you worko much on terms of like this, the scripture services you use, in terms of the way you consume your anime, like why or why haven't you UN down the subscription? The first similar to Chris, I don't only watch much enemy these days. To be fair, I'll read more as well, reading manger that I watch on me. To be understand, I've already want life, I've already got a Netflix Account, I've got as on prime. Eventually, I say, it's you get around to watching. For example, Female Act alchemist is such a but just mainly if I start to watch more anime again, maybe I'll get around to get my Crini because I'd like to see that. It will be easy of access. Probably are watching like my console EXCEP, watching the TV versus watching, you know, like you know those, as you say, bubble lose sites and get better quality. But that because I don't really consume as much enemy these really these days. I don't really see any put to me getting, for example, crunchial. Maybe, for example, if I did start to watch more and more again than I would guest subscription then. But this one time I've gotten. I've got Netflix, lambs on the primary already play for s. So yeah, okay. So question for you guys. If we were toever like everything like, what would make the ultimate anime streaming service? What would you want to be compiled with in this alter anime string service? For you, what was, I like, a key feature that would make you want to subscribe to like a service, like a subscription service like that and everything you want? Yeah, I would add no ads. I don't want any ants and I think it's just to be up to date with with the with releases in Japan. Yeah, well, I think I'm yeah, my main three things would be content, so I don't want a lot of content on assuming service quantite. So I'd want it to be high resolution for K if possible. And then speed of UPLOADS. So if I'm watching a regular maybe something a demon to say Jiu jitsu cousin, I want the next episode up as soon as possible after it's been aired in Japan. Well, Crunchy Roll Prize himself on the air in anime in sub nearly two hours after its lit. I aid live in Japan. So that's what they'll call. There're somewhat simulcast or simle casts. I don't say I'm a gust. Yeah, and that's when they privose was an obviously uploading it almost instantaneously and lets our to yeah, that would be sobbed. So that's that's why I like. That's my biggest thing for cruntrols that they the turn under content. Like one piece comes out every Sunday and I know about at twelve o'clock on a Sunday it will be uploaded and I'm good to go. And I Jutsu Kais and comes out what every Friday, I believe, fire force every like Monday. So I know that this the schedule roughly and they seldom, seldom would. I would the black beard day and uploading that and if there's going to be like, it's not going to be are next week. Don't let you know. I can't at the bottom the page sons own. Obviously, when use on an APP as opposed to the website, you might not get that notification, but obviously they're like they're aware of kind of work. The same when a Manga Cou goes on break, I'M gonna takes like a week. As like crunch all update you on that in terms of the website and says this won't be erring and you'll say the day. So for like crunch advised a very good like service in terms of that, and I've like that's really why controls really push them and the most crunch of also recently...

...introduce pro premium, I believe it's called, and that's now allowed you to download anime offline, and I've seen Netflix already had that with some of their content. Baffle an Amazon pointments of actually funimation don't. I felt like that is a big part in terms of a selling point in terms of assign that for me is that can I watch this content offline. So sometimes I want I want, I want to be fast, to set on much at home if I'm making a commute. If it was normal times, I'd want to watch anime offline rather haven't have a stable Internet kind of connection and some that have a good streaming set connection, so download it may be the best thing for them. But become a long way, mmm, from the old ways to consume anime, which is obviously the sites that Eric uses. And I've got the contrast between those two too. Over contract consuming a lot. Like we'LD talked my easy spoke on the pod money a number of times back when bleach was first ever Naruto was first airing. It. Watch on youtube in three different parts. It's like, you know, a seven minute video here, another seven minute vide there, another seven minute. Yeah, I mean, and I've like having it all, have an all consolidated, makes it that make I don't know, makes like streaming services like much better. I feel like that's like I'ms like you said, the content, the catalog, is a big thing. By having it all being of quality in one concerted a place is amazing. Yeah, you work for crunch? Ll No, I don't, but I hope they picked up after this and obviously I'd give me like a like a code, I mean crunch a shout out your boy prime, butout any ATMs. I mean look, look, speak it and hopefully it'll exist in it and someone, someone drop never now've brot that guy. No, with count rolls or spinks, you can, since Sony are buying. Yeah, that was a new supping. Yeah, because that's weird, because I don't talks by control. You reckon. They may in future. That some kind of maybe incentive with tar certain so on. Free crungy role with playstation plus. You've blood deluded. Honestly, that is absolutely free crunchy role. We've playstation plus. That is delusus of what. It's not fair. Come on, it's going to be a highly unlikely job. Much crunchile racks by itself. Six ninety nine per mon. The nerds, all the NERDS, yeah, are playing playstation or watch an anime. That's all they do. You're an idiot. You're an idiot. Why was it all feasible to I don't get. It wasn't. Yeah, I just don't. I don't feel like I could be a febill package. I feel like with games, you just don't what I want to get for free, because you pay for it. Would free to as well. But there's my I don't think it's feasible. It's just purely because if you feel how much mine they break separately. Will, I think, come bundle in a playstation plus and, as I'm going to one, not increase my subscription fee? I'm not doing anything because no, no, if you think about it, for example, from the financial standpoint, how much is country roll month? Six hundred and ninety nine? Six hundred and ninety nine, okay, and how much will maybe fashion plus? How much playstation plus per month? I don't know that pay per month. I pay Ye, which is that? Seventy nine for your seventy nine pound four a year something. That's I paid fifty. It's actually maybe forty that. Yeah, we discounts. Seventy Pound Stalin. No, I think monthlyest, maybe like twelve. I was told my nine for like three months. Is that's it's a yes, it's the same prices. County six hundred and ninety nine. Yes, for PS and club playstation plus months. I think I think you could at you could at least get...

...a subsidized subsidize fee because so many buying country roll unless they does want something else to add to their portfolio. I think they could benefit a lot from subsidizing the cost on the playstation, because you're going to get more people who like, for example, people who were maybe indecisive about buy an xbox series x and again, if you can five, if they hear that, okay, you get a discounted or you get, yeah, this kind of version of cruntry roll, or or even if you get like six months free playstation five, something along those lines. That's something that can sell a console. Those little as fine margins usually between buying one count one another. So I agree and consider the most jail pugs and anime base rpuge's or games are mainly kind of pushed on playstation first, before xbox or I just made solely for playstation exclusives. I think. I think like I don't, I don't happen, but I feel like it would be a good thing to come about right. Bundle together, let's get all these these anime guys on our side and take over sort side. Speak to go. I mean what I mean, I guess to kind of finalize everything. What anime from Netflix, because I feel like a lot of people. Most people won't have cruntry role or funnimation because especially people who wanted to anime, let's all did a lot of the ritual series now, aren't they? Let's discuss that to let's talk about that. But in terms, in terms of what anime you'd recommend on Netflix and let's say Amazon Prime, for example, what would you recommend to a new be conserving your based on? Yeah, currently, because I know there's those people who would beachling in watching anime, but because there's like a barrier between where to watch it and stuff, even though a lot of people do have Netflix for other reasons. Recommendations on what is available on Netflix might persuade a couple of people to watch it. I agree up on I I think cast many is a good one. Costing is great once to get into let's got free seasons and there's that stuffs suchally. Really what was been really done out? Well, so he's Cassylvania, anime, it says, says any class, but it will a good way to ease and you and you watch her into animation or anime world. I'd say I agree. I would say back in dely, not say back reason now, but I love Blacky, but I definitely would recommend it for new be but you this lie begetting a hunched up. I think it's a bit too over the top. Most people would just want something that's quite similar to normal TV shows, not too over the top. Okay, then I recommend that regular match magic, hi or astrix will I haven't actually seen told you my netflix portfolio and in fact door had Doro. I might even pissing about. I don't as as a record first recommendation, I don't think so. Dori head, Dori I, you got something, watched it, then I'm not going to. I've watched it. I reckon. I reckonst a very good for for someone who hasn't got it me before. It's on Ting on Netflix is possibly one punch management. It may be parasite, depending on the person. I would probably recommend definitely Castlevania, like polly said, and then maybe something along the lines of something like pack agery. Okay, gory as R, I'll no, disagree, Chris. No, no, obviously it's got the the depends. The first time, like think about most of these anime that we're going to recommend, I'm going to be over the top anyway now, but categories of the top and explicit kind of over the top. That almost like it's a bit weird.

Yeah, like I recommended. I think I'm my friends are watching anime using Netflix. I think I recommend to deafinitely as the base level entry, and she loved that. Or is. Yeah, definitely always my first point of contacts, recommendation for even for anyone just trying to get into anime point period. I don't know if from terror and residence is on Netflix. Not Anymore. It's obsolately one. That's it's not anymore. Yes, terrible was on there. It's not anymore. Well, yeah, that I've seen. Netflix probably license it for a bit, but it's good. I mean I wouldn't say everyone cry baby. If you're going to put K agory, you put down man in the same boat both Mesh. Yeah, not recommend I could have watched the watch the first episode of episode. It wasn't what you mean. I'm atually I think probably that. Yeah, I think that anime start start with dream. Yeah, the same thoughts all, but had to get used to it. I think it's a bit too it's a bit too adult form. I wish occat to children. What enemy that I was suggest under but not necessary for a beginner, would be no inveloor life. I think it's a great enemy, but for somebody to just started off it is a bit too much. I've about a list of and ENTRYMA for Netflix, regular magic high of S. Yeah, again, yeah, Asterix will yeah, seriously, yeager is all right, I think. I think those like that only few. I think. I think I was, as I don't feelish parking. What's seriously, eager? Yeah, I just wonder if anyone else has seen him, but I'm I think we should. I'm I think I mentioned it earlier, but I think we should touch on the fact that a lot of these stream providers have taken into creating, obviously their own anime content, but also picking up a lot of anime content in general. Like on Amazon Prime, they've got, what's the aim? More swordsman name again? fucking a well, Chris was that was the album? The immortal swordsman, Blady, oh blade, the mortal. Oh, yeah, say Amazon Blade, their moortal. They have. They have quite a few. They've got something circus. I can't remember. Can't whisplad names, but they they've got Shin Geking Obahama. They've got are creators on their arm and they've got like a that's regretted too long. Bro It so long. It's like twenty four episodes. I was what's Lowe a re creators, but Shin Gheki Obahama obviously amazing first and second seasons. I didn't want the second season. He's a finish it. I said not watch some of the second season. Love the lot are funny to yeah, I feel of that as well. I feel like I've obviously touched when on the youtube videos. I did, but I feel like I'll see Amazon and Netflix have taken big interest in pick up animeze as part of the kind of like their put failure of shows. So point where like on my Netflix now like apes and recommendations are always anime recommendations, because that's how much like like, that's how much I watch. And even that the port frail, they've got back. He's now the new back. He's purely license by Netflix, not an ovious and performs bay them or pure license by Amazon Prime, and that they've got like decency, just as animates on their staff, flight studioman parts and so goes on. Amazone as well, Yep, exquecid I'm on prime. I think that's animated by Madhouse as well. It's time so that they've got some big stooges that you know if you watch anime, you know that likes a pseudo map and mad house I've got some very noble animals and behind them. So when the sites taking that like a big point in of view on this, I feel like it just...

...goes to show that animals obviously become more pop culture and there's a big kind of pull to get regular subscriptions because of animal viewers and Nim watches. But you guys a really got netflix subscriptions, and Chris mentioned before that you know, if it's not an Amazon prime in Netflix's probably not going to try and look for it out of out of the blue. If you'll just use you know these boy eric to kind of use Eric. Eric watches his own stuff, I'm sorry. So he partakes just experience Eric. To Walk Past Eric at times. I plods just part takes in the view and experience with Eric. So I'm about that. That that's the kind of like a if you've really got the service. And now we add in all these extra animals to it. It's I'm more likely to stay with the service and then leave and look seek alternative means. Yeah, man, we don't want to be the subscription so yeah, I'll just about to make a light and that, because it's just like what I wouldn't want to happen is that new subscription services start popping out and it's like Oh, you can, can watch this here, and it's just like I'm especially if you like those series as well that they're offering on their students platforms, whichever those future ones are, and I think we'll get some point where it will just become too much. I know that I'm not going to invest in anything other than Netflix. It's just just not going to do it because I didn't once. I don't know, I feel like, but all you get. You look at what you're spending. Obviously some people are boiling, but I'm not spending like seventy pound a month out of expenses for streaming me personally. I just can't do it. And when you look at it, it's just like not on you paying that. But the TV's are there. Obviously people don't watch to the anymore. We do. We not pay like TV license and all that stuff. Yeah, we faithy license. Yet yeah, school should probably all about one the night exactly. So TV license, all this streaming stuff. If you've Got Sky Virgin, do you? When you think about it's like, how much are you spending on watching stuff? Obviously we've locked down coronavirus. We've all been at home just watching stuff self, isolating containing the virus, saving lives, as Brow I said. But you know, costwise is, I think, some point in factor, although I pay for all four. Is kind of like what which one of these can easily go? Amazon prime probably be the first to go. But no one bailing, like Huh, but you say, fellow, that's all right. Continue. Yeah, so I thought. Mr I put up to the house in a rangelizes anyway. Anyway, yeah, I feel like there's levels of subscription service in it. Like you got to think of what additional content I'm getting of it. Netflix luckily has a plethora of other content. Amazon has Amazon Prime, which I'm delivery. So there's those are two things that, you know, you're not really losing much by having Amazon prime anywhere. You know, like who of I can watch animal and TV shows because most people get for if I'm next to every sort of things. Yeah, but Netflix is Ghilo. Every couple of weeks I'm reading these articles and they're saying Netflix wants to increase. I'm not her increase. What it was nice making news. You got. I'm not glad you're putting it up. Paying it, like, let's not that of ourselves. That one pound change under us about who bit's deep. I might as a change my access then, because I'm already paying premium. You Pay Fourteen P ninety nine. Yeah, cool, I respect that. Man. You're quality. Yeah, and I get it. I want to be your friend still. Well, what we've heard from this is savory money. Save your money, but I will be a baller. Yeah's Inter options. Be like a record,...

...be like, you know, money. So I mean, ultimately I think it will be good for recommendations to be done based on the most popular assuming platforms. Yeah, also to inform people on things like film, for because they have a very big anime push. They've they've had, I mean I've watched tons of anime on film for in the past, in the early two thousands, and they've continued that up until today. So I think for people who want to watch something new or interesting, it's definitely worth checking out film for and their anime season. But one and I recommendation from the non so conventional animal streaming sets. I'm I'm actually going to go vinland. So I'll go on Amazon, prime money ill, Netflix and watching a game of life. Cool. I still obviously Netflix, not paying anything else, although we discuss this earlier, and technically cause of Vana isn't anime, I think it's a good start, one to get people like put into the whole anime world. So I'll go for that one. All your op foundations for my alchemist, right. Yeah, it should be. That's gonna say that as all look fraud. What's The mail, alchemist? It's amazing, apparrently. So, yeah, see, hopefully, with that said, you know, the viewers and listeners can look forward to Poonday's review and come up time in next week. Next week.
