Facts. Yeah, yeah, so we just just quote uncle it. Enjoy it for, like, you know, energies a bit lower but we're going to pick it up for you, guys. Really is red wine? Red Wine? What you think about? Well, I swear. Will you be watching or read it? Well, I gave all I get up on island. It's finished. Start the week. One Wednesday I was done. That's thought. I've matured. I can't watch her to you no more. This is age, guys. Am I getting older? I just can't do it. The opposite to watch. The older I get, the more I create, the trashy I'd see. Me Really is can't do anymore. But this season, we love island. UK has been especially whack. I've been watching the US one is much spicier. It's not there. Still reading. Good luck bump them. I really haven't had time, but I've got the book. Gere, you asked You about the book. Yeah, still there. I'm opened, but I is Sare gonna worry, so I can pull you. What's the Volumeteo? All right, I see that again. You know, like just find it. Literally can't find it anywhere. Ebay. Well, it's like a hundred second dollars. We should talk about this manger shortage. I think it's just globally. You know, I can find anything so much copy of the first deluxe exact, so in order to Veris of the deluxe desart. When he won by accident, I said I would have put money in your count because when I said see, I was gloating it. But I oh, yeah, I found it had when you everyone else to seem a beginning. Let me check the update of my castle. That lets me so sorry. We had nothing. I think they never like people saming of a ridiculous I want you find any, any anywhere. How much is you said it for stow fifty pounds, a twenty something in it. Yeah, I thought that was reasonable for die hard fun they'll be ready to get men, but they don't. I even did it. I like. I allow people to Bitch for it as well. Nice people. Was Ready. Very Fair enough. Time. Funny is when is it was again? You come wrong. I don't Huh. EQUIPMENT SHAMING MS every parties are different. Okay,...

...no facts. Was it to tame my cameras, crispy, come on now, the difference? I met. It's in the video, older videos. Anyway. This week's I can sway out. What have you been playing or watching or reading? Chris, I've been catching up on Manga. So I call back up on one piece. I don't know where I feel behind. It wasn't by much, but I was by about five chapters, so I'm not to day on that, and I was pretty good, as we know. I've been reading. I caw up with one punch man, Oh wow, which is also very good. Most importantly, I've been playing sky with sword. I don't know why I bought it again, especially you know, and I've literally got the same game on a different console like right behind me, but I bought it again and I actually don't regret it's really good. The way it looks, it's enough of a difference in graphical quality to warrant to purchase in my opinion. And Yeah, man, it's more fun than I'm then I remember it being. I think they've tweaked a lot of the little things, a lot of the load. In Times of reduced there's less talking, talking, speed is faster, so it just seems a bit more of a smooth experience now. But yeah, I've literally been playing that all weekend. Nice, HMM, and you softed. I've been reading. I'm dead unlocked here. The scene in was it last weeks episode of Sexy Started? So I've been reading that. It's a really weird it's really weird to describe, like I can't start reading it, even down like it's not that great, I can't start reading it. I'm like I have to get caught up. I don't know. I think something is telling me that they might be a shift somewhere, or maybe like there's something pupping me, even though I feel like it's so right. You know, what's been the most enjoyable aspect of the manger so are? She doesn't know, to be honest. Maybe I think it's that there the dynamic between the main characters we've been introduced to so far. I still feel like maybe that's why I feel is that King. I feel like the way the interacting each other's very enjoyable to read, but in terms of their own individual personalities, I feel like they could be flashed out more. So I'm hoping, I think that's what's keeping me going, like I'm hoping to see more like backstory and more dimensions to their personalities and stuff, just to just to see if they dont more fleshed out to me. But yeah, it's a fun time, but I'm alstly meeting JJ here as well, it's actually washed up to episode nine of the anime. That's guy just there for like because I was on the hype train, I was really paying attention. So I going back to like chapter one to read it, you know, right down chut the zero, helischopter zero. Okay, I'll sto from Jack to zero. It's only four chapters between the like people pages each. It's is a bit of a drag, but about what happened to in running zero. It does kind of have an importance. After the what's The allll called the sister? Sister School, Right, what happens? But that's that's all come thinking of. This is the school, right, flashback seen. So there's a flashback scene. You too, guys. And and what you read from volume zero. You get about understanding of what's going on. You know, that's that's usually I prefer. I felt like it was better to read volume zero after that or when that came...

...up, rather than right and the start. Yeah, you don't really get much, that much context from the beginning. Obviously you recognize some characters and you know about some of their abilities, but there's not much else you really gained. In my opinion, that you can't catch up on later on if you were to read it in a different chronological order. I'll keep going. Okay, and I'm sure I know when that big comes out of a little. Okay, you feel like you're know when to read it. Yeah, yeah, definitely why. Also, I've been beginning. I've been reading or head or. It's so good I want to get caught up. I was taking my time with it, but now when you get cut up because they dark. Okay, which is how she is newest work. It's been officially releasing English. Someone I like start reading that as well, but I want to finished her doory first, and I've been reading writkoi during. So I've watched the animally like five tive years and I have to mind your vous up because they released this sporadically. I didn't want to get caught up, and now it's finishing and like I have all these volumes, I'm going to need the water play as well. anime. I've been watching Kaiji. Still Nice. How far I'm on every piece? Thirteen, which one auto survivor season one survive? Very good, very stressful varianteing the very very stressful. Literally, I think I think I just finished watching I cut gems and I think it was jerry that I was the said like, Hey, have you at sky? Do you like knows it like? Is it like? Is it like? I've got Jens's like, though, and I see the similarities. It's just like, how's this? How does this keep getting worse? Is that kind of feeling? But yeah, it's really good, like it was. It remind me of I mean obviously obvious similarities to category, but it's yeah, yeah, I' Got Jim's. Is quite an interesting way to put it. So I think, I think it's just that the high stress it like, because I sick. The stakes are so high and it's just very stressful, very sure. I think of Kaiji's is more emphasis on like the mind games, like the actual gambling, a spectr. It is just like an excuse to dub into like people's psychees and make motivations and all that stuff. It's really good. It's really well written. And what else have I watched recently? I think that's it. But we are going to start these stars season two, so I might do like a spontaneous, much party thing in this could all let's running. Yeah, if that's a she's down to your Monday's. So tomorrow I'll stop the stars in the cod see into and then playing. I'm playing much. I did pick up this in a five against the first time for months. Yes, for say dusty. I haven't even finished my Ms Palace yet for August and I want to get back into hades and I've been playing better. The R to you on the finish activating all the shrines before you just said breath, while to absolutely sorry for the sequel comes out better. The word I want to act to do this shrine. It ends about to beating like after hrine. So one of them hip because I know what comes out for the world. To you, you don't. Yeah, I think that's been that's been me psally. I've been reading monstar quite a lot reasoning. That's been like my my co meet. That would be reading. I watch the anemay, but I can't do it. I don't think I've finished aneway. So it's got a Manga Book and start reading. I really wanted to get so finish the first volume of vager one and I want to get a second volume. But the quality of the Manga books are actually Drush, like the pages with the rip apart the spinal Bo...

...yeah, it spin a book bends too easily and I thought it was just my one and I was speaking to somebody about I said, Oh, yeah, what, I even mentioned it. So yeah, I will get more vagable, I will get a bigger one volume, but too many people come to me to complain about the quality of the book. Is it is the big ones? Yes, yes, really, yes, I don't know how, I don't know, in the same one, I don't know. Often use it, but I've felt like I've got like my pages, I've been ripped out from it. Yeah, so I want. I want to get more of the work spot. I just feel I can waste some more money. The qualities is not good and never had any issues with big Manga books before until this one. So be along, maybe have maybe it's time to do this spine here. I think it's blue, because now sometimes they say it this is acting. I just beak blue, so that might be. I was bending the book quite often, obviously to to read the pages on it. So I think that's wapping, because they sure only start coming when out got to you let both through the book and actill like spread the book open more often by your monsters. We've been reading mostly recently trying to catch up two house paradise. I don't think I reached ten checks yet, but so far as it's easn so far as these and I haven't got to the point where I'm loving it, but it sometimes it takes times with these things. Also started watching I want to diversify my entertainment and selections, so start watching Water Cli, which I've really, really, really enjoying, really really enjoying. Our Life's really fun it's it's just hilarious. Is Literally based around for or four five characters at the point that I'm on and that's all the focus is on. But it's just really funny. It's a really, really funny anime, nicelice of life, and I think I'm I'm kind of more into watching, more relaxed anyway than I ever was before. I don't care as much to go on my way to watch about or adventure, drowning or even psychological feelers or dramas and one so forth. I think sometimes it's just nice to have a little slice of life, especially after watching a taxi thelice life mystery DNA might just be something that I will engage with more. But yeah, just stust. That's be me. Recently I should have been banglouts between all I ever really do it just because you can't relate. Chris, it's okay, I've reallygated you shock I didn't even do obviously, I want to say I didn't know the saying in your bar you put someone do well on corner. That's what I don't that's cause seems like the most stable thing in my life. Fake laughing even I'm covering High Square on my inviting again from the means. You keep saying that again again. What does he threatening with? I don't you remember Punch's beard off. Anyone who's not a UK viewers know what the fuck is that? The meme somewhere. Yeah, nice, up a little catch up. So to move on to the news. It's something I came to attention re seeing is that in the month of June, cyberpunk that was the best selling Psfour game, even though it was had a six month absence. I'm not sure what it means about six months as ands and it was. It was. It was pulled from the playstation store. Yeah, and all that stuff. Okay, so was always added back. Even in the month of gene everyone just going crazy boy, even though how crappy came out enough. I don't think I'm another. I don't think I know. I'm never going to play this game. Have you got it? No, and I'm never get yeah, I mean I still have the...

...game, so it's it's more of a thing of a probably will play it. was waiting for it to get next to the right level before I engage in it. As soon as I started playing, the news came out of all the crashes and I just thought, yeah, there's no point in playing, but the same time I couldn't be bothered to return it back. So I've just got it sitting there and hopefully it will get better at least have a decent single play experience. So you people who don't refund an exchangefulity goods are really rich. You know, I pay for mine to be fair. Relays, relays, money, Chris. There's money, money and money, Chris, because what I'm very, very like Sampa, Champagne, Christ and tea money, and imagine even like champagne, something with more literation. Chris, stop, I'm joking. Now he's on the topic of video games. Netflix applanning to add video games to each service in the next year. Howing, Mike Verdu a former head of emobile. If facebook they are Slesh, we are as vice president of the development. I'm let's get to the fact that they're hiring somebody that was head of mobile gaming. So I'm but curious about how the Games will turn out. For netflix itself, I think I'm about being aspect is not as not some discutanize as much as just like how they would deliver games. I'm not play like I guess because it's Netflix. I'm just assuming you'll be like something similar. To stay here was like, okay, well, streaming games either way. I'm interested to see what it looks like, but I'm almost not interested in my being any of these games. So, but enough to pay? Yeah, no, I have no interest. I don't like Eay. Oh yeah, we hat that. I remember. Okay, yeah, just like. Let's be honest, they have have a long history of putting out a little rubbish and prioritizing making money over anything anything else. Whether it's the quality of the game, where it's the sanctity of the consumers, whether it's protecting kids from gambling, none of that matters to EA and as a result, it shows in their games and the ideas are very apparent in the kind of games they put out and that's how was they put out. So No, I mean I'm not really interested. It's just going to be a way to, for me, increase the price of Netflix add some funky streaming titles. I don't see how you're gonna have any decent chipolate outs come out on a streaming platform. Yeah, exclusively. There's there's going to be no reason for me to get a game on Netflix in comparison to steam or on the playstation five or on my switch or whatever. So now no interesting. I've been interested. To me like they're targeting for us, because if it's like more casual games, and I see it, but, like you said, this it's like what such a play out ors? I just just say, yeah, a good phys if you work. But I'm not course, I'm not sure what the crossover is between Netflix users and gamers. I don't think it's interesting. Actually that consistent? Yeah, it'd be interesting to see. That's what I mentioned earlier about what I'm...

...bit confused by. Someone the specializing all were gaming is because when we do consume Netflix, I don't know most people are. I don't necessarily think that they use the phones from Netflix. I might be wrong. I feel like Netflix is more like our a, a TV or laptop a whole year so. So I would assume that they would have gone in the direction of more traditional type of video games rather than what I'm assuming to be more mobile gaming and have people more you to the phone's rather than their home systems. So that's what was bit spectacles skeptical about them being somebody that specializing more game. I don't know. I mean me myself. I'm quite a avid netflix UES mobile user. But yeah, yeah, I use a lot Netflix on my phone light on my travels. But I feel like it's mobile gaming in the sense of the type of game being produced, not so much where it's going to be played. So I don't think it's going to be exclusively played on or no, it probably all be, but I don't think the aim is it is for it to be exclusively played on mobile phone. There could be something where you could play using your phone as a remote and casting onto costing netflix onto a screen or whatever, but I just don't feel quality of the game is going to be that good. That's my that's my concern. The only thing that I can think of this because I see that the client to add video games to the service. Are they actually planning to develop more video games? or My might have been something like what's those? The thing that playstation have, not not P S, plus the one they complete. So again, plays ation now, yes, please, station now something that playstation now, where you didchally have a catalog or games you can rent out via Netflix event displayed like that through wherever game console you have, rather than them like actually developing chipple a games or or games from Netflix that you just literally stream people to Stream Games that you want to stream and play a set price for it on them off the pieces. Yeah, in my in my head, initially I feel like it's going to be similar to like U Yeah, or on live, where you're literally taking chipolatiles played at maximum settings and literally just streaming them through Netflix as as a bridge. And so if that's the case, netflix would bring out their own controller or have compatibility with, you know, android controls of some sort. But I don't I don't really don't know. I feel like the whole streaming thing, especially in the UK, one thing you've got realizes an'ton next speeds are not that great. Yeah, so streaming, streaming chipolataitles is very, very hard to do. If you were like software, maybe, maybe literally, maybe if maybe of Jeremy Calling, what? Maybe this would be a whole new series of what if Joe Recording one, and you imagine impact on gaming? Oh yeah, just move on. So it's actumber person or will be selling bringing the twenty five yeah, anniversary. They are launching a special website and or teasing seven new projects. So towards the floor, yours. Yeah, so this now I instantly got high. But then when it says so many projects and like, let me manage my expectations a little bit, because like or if it's just like there's know how percent of foreheads we were christen their helpers in the four head? Like a million. Yeah, I always I couldn't keep up. If it doesn't all night. Then had the other arcade game that had the sequel to that Arci game. Then I had like another like it had like moving...

...anime and and another. It was a lot. So if it's just like more movies and Anime, that I'm not interested, but if it's actual games, I feel like seven new projects, he's that's a lot. Those of content. If we're talking about games which make it feel like maybe it's not, so maybe I shouldn't be excited. But again, if it comes to a Nintendo or atlas, I'm like Dope, creen. So I'm obviously going to keep my eye on these, but yeah, just try and manage my exercitations a little bit. Actually, were under percent of central site to see if there's any like hints, and there's nothing. So it's just like Oh, yeah, stay tuned. It's basically it's stuff about merchandise. Yeah, put on a march. I actually I got the collectors addition of pisode of key, which I never finished because there's a really scary dungeon and I couldn't get cost. I was like look, it's good, it's good. If, if hide, this is this wh know what I'm talking about is Good Evil Spirit Club. And maybe maybe I'm just to Nigerian or like. When things start falling in the scene and as I'm not playing this, watch a place, it was something, but it was a really good game up to that point. I got the it came with like the Tarrat cars, because it is like the Demon Arcana is the whole thing that. So it came in the tar cars. It came with the soundtrack in the city and art book. So that somewhere. And then, yeah, that's it for much the like. I guess that poss I got a post. I got that comic on. Yeah, yeah, stuff like that. And if we want to last few pieces of news, one of them being a sealed copy of supermarrow sixty four has been sold for one point five six million dollars and auction, making it the most valuable game collectible of all time. So my question is, how many old Nintendo Games of you guys, guys, have that sealed and how we're going to split the profits? Crowded burn as questions here. See All would you think? I am Christians is very, very easily, he very, very easy. This was some ten see games. Doesn't plenty. I don't have any sealed. A old toils. That's the thing. See New titles. Believe it or not, once upon a time I said play angmplay every single game. But no, no seal titles. I do have some older titles that do have some value and do have some worth, but know nothing sealed to that extent that people wanted to start buying. It's not opening games and just waiting, as just wait like years. Yes, yeah, I mean the problem is, the problem is I feel like that then that time is is passing and the way gaming was back then, there's far, far fewer supplies of games to begin with. Nowadays, if you have a top title, you're you're going to have millions of copies printed, or at least in that in the you know, five hundred thousands, whereas before you might have literally a decent game only print at two hundred thousand copies worldwide, and the people who get them usually don't think much of them and they'll be one person, one dude who thinks. You know what, let me seal this, you know, special copy of we sports resort and play it and see what happens. In twenty years time there's going to be one personal and that's where these prices one point, five, six million, that's where they will come from. Really surprised that it's my sister four that is it a reg game? It's not a reg game, but I think it's just the condition of the game, because the way there's a classification,...

...it's like I think it was. I'm not sure many, but I think is a plus plus. Yeah, I think I think the highest you can get is a triple plus, which is pretty much like it's just been printed. But they keep it in these kind of vacuum seals protect them, get them verified by proper bodies and then they just hold them and see what happens with their value. Question. Do you know who held the record or most valuable game before this one? Which game you mean? I don't know. This was a Olympics. Now the end of the V game was getting bin but I would have said the only one I can think of is there was a track and field game on the on the yes, that was that was. That went for like stupid and month. But I can't really think of anything else. So the the game. So the game, so essentially Super Mario suiting for but the record. But s before another game boot the record? Oh, a hundred and Seventyzerot. Yes, yeah, the leg mons older corner first one. Personally I first one. But yeah, yeah, so I think before the elder was I'm not sure it was Shaku field, but checkingfield held a record for a very, very long time because there wasn't many copies printed. Yeah, and to be one to our last bit of news is introduction of steam deck, a powerful POOL WALL PC gaming starting at three hundred nine nine dollars, designed by Wolf, powered by steam. Shipping December two thousand and twenty one, so in about six months time. I don't know much about this, but I saw that loads of jokes on twitter. The people like just buy the role or where steam deck? Sorry, as by the steam deck event. Emily, I didn't see anything about this actually physical specs of it, but like, I feel like it's a cool idea. I don't know. No, I mean, yeah, I think it's I think it looks cool. I think it is cool. There are obvious things to consider, mainly battery life. That's that's real life. is going to be a big, big thing. I know it's powerful system, so I don't expect the married to last very long. Number One. Number two the price. It's quite expensive. Hundred dollars. What science telling let's let's be honest, is going to come? It's going to come out for like four hundred pounds. Yeah, he's you know, I come out with fifty. I'm sure come out with fifty US and sixty. That's that's the base. That's the baseline. That's the baseline version, which is like I'm not sure I'm nly Gig because I thought you too Gig or something. Sixty four some of them those lines anyway. But no, it's not going to beat the switch. People buy the switch for exclusive titles. Why? I don't get why you would buy a stream deck just to emulate when you can bas those sense where you could just buy the switch. Yeah, and if you want to try and justify and say I'll but you can also play PC games, number one. Most of these people who are going to buy the steam deck have PCs anyway. So that's one thing to consider. So if you wanted to emulate, there are other ways to to emulate switch games. I wouldn't buy a steam deck just to do that. And then the type...

...of Game Mart this is aimed at, I don't really see it being that much of a marketable product. Guys are playing these chiplate titles, like I've seen stuff like control on are the star wars game like big, big tire ors. People are trying to play these games in the best possible settings. I know you can connect it to a Tiev to the TV screen, but that defeats the purpose. Just by a PC. Yeah, yeah, I think they have to really if I guess, if anything new developed, still have to think hard about their USP this we just which is obviously the fact is portable and home comes at the same time. I think without a specific seven point, I've seen many people bind this. One thing to remember is that there's this thing that people love to do, the same motorcycle. Oh yeah, this is going to kill the switch or this is going to kill the DYEA, this is going to kill the game. Boy is so much more powerful, Scott, all these games. People don't really care about that stuff. Just have this product on its own and they do something really and that wraps up our new segment. So there's something that I mentioned before people we saw the recording that it was a question I want to ask you, guys. So I'm writing a I want to start write an articles for my friends online magazine and one of the first things that I'm starting to write is the Tas called five enemies from non animy watch. was had a few anemies in mind that I want to worry about the this is the list that I currently have. So definitely, if I can't sat and raise what to call you and De Miss Leo, and these are the five enemies. I decide to pick to introduce rand arc about about an Iman. Enemy watches, that this should watch. You use them to enemy. Obviously. What would your recommendations be if you were interchange to do somebody to enemy? I still gonna go first. Okay, get your bagging store given. Give me a time to think. I definitely say the ones you've got on the list are good ones. I'm not familiar with to so deven say, Oh, what's Quem? Never read or watched, so I wouldn't know what it's about. But I definitely think for first time anime watches, it needs to be easy, not too much, not too much show and not too much you know. It needs to kind of be easy going for them. But I say this it goes back to conseration you've had in the past about recommendations and the big three, one of the big three series being one of them, and I definitely stick by that argument to say that one of those series used to be on there kind of recommend so someone saying you watch out, yeah, that's that's what I say, but something from the big three to start them off, so that also they not only have that experts, we can contrast it with anime from before and the anime series of today, even only one, you think that a big free should be wanted to recommend a enemies for people. Yeah, no, I do. The reason why I disagree with is like you feel like the standard of anemy quality by sage quite a bit. And also I feel like even me I didn't like it at this a first, the seasonal stuff. I didn't really like the season stuff before, and because also used to have an anemy come out weekly. But thing is actually a great idea for a long running anime and, for example, demon slayer att I can time and she is the guys and so on and so forth. that the cart, the cling up, the animates, seasons, probably doing weekly and Alice off. That's not necessary to a story and I feel like, if you want, I feel like the Manga is the best representation of the story and anime in the past has butchered that. But I didn't feel out when it wasn't necessary. And I feel like if you introduce somebody to closer on pull a ru or bleacher or even or even one piece,...

...you're you're not giving them the best representation of that story. And and with with the new journal of anime. They've got it, the getting a lot closer to what I believe to what the Manga Manga car wants, because, one, they're not addn't unnecessary stuff, and it's stuff that you do add is it adds to the story rather than adding a new story. But yeah, that's why I would necessarily suggest somebody that hasn't in this year, that hasn't watched anime often, not previously year, doesn't watch animal at all. I wouldn't recommend any of the brief for you for that specific reason. I agree with your points. Stick around the point you made about quality and it not matching the story as much as it does today, tickularly, because anime studios have evolved in their in their way of producing Manga and kind of keeping up to date with that short writing of the Manga series themselves. And I think of the series, of all the series you name, the all five, I believe you names. They're all new series in recent so I think two bouts out. Always think it's good to kind of drop in one that's old, you know, like an old one, because a very new the one that you raise. But you did raise valid points, Chris. Oh my gosh, drops it's the apple. How many times are you people going to be hanging? Hanging, oh, that's all. That's money, money swinging. I don't know what he's singing really well, but I'm still fairly composed, like I'm still I'm like glasses academia, you know pod. Yeah, okay, yeah, I think I agree with with a lot of the ones you pick. So definitely I do like because it's quite there's not too much in terms of the mystical. A lot of it can make sense, even though we do have, you know, the wod, you call it. Rio Can what they called? Should gummies? Think I'm nigummies. Yeah, even though we have the shiny gummy, there's not that much in the story that's entirely takes a lot to understand all you or something that you need prior knowledge of anime to understand. So I definitely agree with that. Attack on Titan is another one. It feels like it's it's very easy to get into it. Cut, it cut from the start. So I've always thought that's a very, very good one. eraised. Definitely, I feel like it's a good one, even though you do have the the element of a guy been able to kind of go back in time and revisit his history. For the most part, is still something that is quite the where I put it is that it be very easy to see it in a live action so there's not too much to understand from a from a anime perspective, and someone who does and have anime could still figure out what's going on. I think after those three that's when I start to look at preferences of stuff that may previously like. So, for example, if they are, let's say, for example, is a Harry Potter Fam I would definitely recommend for metal alchemist.

If they like a you know, like a n S Vibe, or they're really big on on music, I might pick cowboy people another one on my pick. Maybe if they're not to if they don't mind seeing a bit of Lude, then I might pick something like sugar Gett, you know, Soma or Kak Gury, something where it's for the most part very easy to understand, but the lewd nature of the the story could put a lot of people off. So, but other than that, I think, I think, yeah, I think your choices is still suffice. Some opinion. It's any foots diagree of attack on Titan and the race because I think, at least from suspected, a lot of people who didn't usually watch anime watch the second Titan yeah, people something that's I think said something about the anime and that it could be even though it's not. It's quite easy dealing with heavy stuff. It's good introduction terms of just like a captivating story from like the outset. So so they reduce introduce people. Also, similarly to what cusser saying about all, if someone at her potter, I suggest from the topmost of them. I think for me, if it would be easier for me to know what to recommend to people, especially since I haven't read or watched a lot of the like popular and I really like a sand much. Definitely, probably never will if its NARATER. I think I got to like run, watch the floor. I think I got to the Rooky retrieve rock in Leach or this, like the the popular stuff. I haven't watched Evangelian you stuff like that. So I think for me be like okay, if I knew what that person usually likes, so be easier for me to recommend them. Like I have a friend who likes watching. I have a home use obsessed like the vanilla movies. So like, okay, you should watch PAPRICA and like as I'm killing a terror stuff things with. They have to follow like paper place the ship pot lines a recommended back on it to her as well. For that reason, or like if someone really likes game of thrones, you might be okay, I know what to recommend to you. That anime. I think there's just so many different genres get towards the different demographics with then mango and anime like if you really really easy to recommend stuff to someone, if you really know what they're like in terms of books, on movies or TV shows. So I think that's a good basis. But Atta came to any rays about that. Just like generally. Yeah, is it the pics? Just to pick up on your point that you're you're never going to watch definitely or not? Just in just in general, probably real go by. I probably will by many times in anywre honest, but you might not. I think like it's getting to the point where it's getting a lot harder to watch classic enemy. I feel like we had a cause again, I know it spoke about this before, is that we keep getting way more enemy in recent years than we ever had before we are gainst slept with with dozens and dozens a enemy per season. We never had that before. Select ten, fifteen years ago, when people would recommend enemy, it will literally be the same ones from from one person to another. Is because the pool of great enemies or good enemies or there my enemies were watching wasn't as large. So you would always get you always hear somebody bring up I will be pop or one of the one of the big free or again, definitely is been one that's always been recommended, could be your son and so forth. It was such a small pool, not a school pool, but was it anyway near as large as this. And I think the older we get in the most time pass on and the more enemy is out there. They're less likely you are going to have time to what watch all these classics. Now I will gladly recommend to any ready to watch what animal regular, regular basis, or taxi, which it's like when before the season started, that literally...

I need see a single person mentioned or taxi. But it's going to be so many duors type of enemies where are literally on Earth Gems that there you find out about it weeks or months Lee or after enemy drops of render just adds to the list of our enemy need to watch. So what would you concern yourself watching the animies like twenty three years old, when you can just watch something that came out this year? Yeah, I think I think that's a very, very valid point. People like to be in within the gossip. They like to talk about the stuff that's relevant. They want to be able to speak in conversations about, you know, what's going on, what the latest show is. The problem I usually see with all the shows compared to new ones is that, because there's so many new anime when they created essentially trailers, soundtracks, first episodes are all made to be very, very engaging for the most part, I feel like we're currently in a place where we don't have as much patience as we used to. So we need something to quip us from the very, very beginning. And so when you see, for example, something along the lines of, let's say, even one piece, and you watch the first episode of one piece and you're like this, it was okay, but there's like a thousand episodes, I don't know if I'm going to be able to do this when there's, you know, another show here, ten episode modes in a season. Next season comes out next year. I can do with that and catch up with that. I can be part of a discussion about that show without having to commit, you know, a hundred hours to the show. But yeah, the older one, you know, is the old ones. What we need to remember is that we've all come from a background of watching anime from a very, from relatively young age. So watching those shows has shaped how we see all other shows where a lot of the newer anime watches don't have that. They might want to just watch shows that are similar to, you know, game of thrones or similar to Harry Potter or similar to Pokemon or something along those lines, and they may never want to watch anything that we recommend the big three. They may have never they might they may have no interest in it whatsoever. So yeah, so I think that I want to pick on the cup on wis. We've got some one pieces that my recommendation for enemy versus my recommendation from mangle for people that, having watched or read watch enemy often or Redman got often, are completely different. If I need somebody that enjoys reading and reads quite often, I will gladly recommend them. Long running shown in mango. I will have no calms recommending somebody that reads often one piece. I will have no colums or recomend it recommending them to read bleach or Hunt Hunt what the boiling versions? Not that online version completely different. Yeah, so, and that's just based on the I guess, the level of enjoyment between between the ANNIVERSA Mangot, and goes back to you what was saying earlier about how enemy studies recently, in the last few years, have got it more right in comparison to what we gained early, two thousands, late, lately, pence. Sorry, early time. Sorry, so I see. But yeah, my recombination between enemy man go be cut completely differents want to pick up on that point? Yeah, any courts is done. I I agree. I agree with your points. You know, it's quite objective.

So I subjective. No, the choice and what's recommend a new anime watcher. And just to echo what Chris is math qus mentioned before, we are living in the time where people are in patient. They ready to watch the next thing, whereas previously, let's wait a long time, like to be quite patient of our anime. So actually, in today's me it today's world, like new and I watch's are really, really lucky. They get their content and their episodes lot more we can it when we used to music quality everything soundtrackers is it's completely different as well. But I do think there are, there will be a small, a small mini group of new anime watches that, once they're in it and they start to enjoy it, will want to know about previous animes that came before. Like Chris is mentally, it won't be a lot. It would be a lot of people. Most will just do you want what most all prefer to just watches seasons go by. There will be a few that will appreciate that work as they become more into and I got get more of an interest in anime and want to kind of look to the past. But I'm just speaking for the minority of those who will want to get into that. The frisons in the majority. But I agree with you guys that that's a very good point because it's likely what you're saying happens with gaming as well. People don't tend to even even lesser than with anime. People don't want to play old games for the most part, but you will get a small subshit s so subsection of people who do want to go back and see, okay, whether this tyle originate, was the history behind this title? All right, let's taken seven. Let's see what se can one was like. How does the story continue? How did it develop? How did it become this? How to become that? There are a few people who will do that. I think just a majority of people, especially people who come into anime late one, really have much. I've an interest to do it. You know, I think thinking about those for subset of people, I think I feel in stuff for like games and anime, but I think a part of the motivation for me is that I get so over around because things come out so quickly and I can't keep up. So I feel like I use that as an opportunity, like I couldn't possibly keep up anyway. So I not use this opportunity to go back in the visit like old classics a little. Why do people love this old games? I'm going to play so much. Let me see what it's like. Yeah, play the same thing that animal as well, like having mean to watch you. I could show for aces, but I was like, I kin'd be thinking about it until I've got up to date. One piece, but it's going to be my next long project on them is it's still Netflix from last time I was there, but I know some Manga series are some anime series have been removed in and they come back. Yeah, I mean hopefully when I'm really either be on functual or so on Netflix or yeah, I think that's only my next one. Want and we looking forward to it. In the came up stay long ago. It's just I think it's nice to see what makings so pupper like. This is not even this is still kind of related, but I finally watch scarface like four years ago, no way, and I feel like when I watched it I was like, okay, I can see why this movie was such a big fucking do. At the time it came out like nice and I could. I got context to all the like references and stuff like just what like. But the when he to say a look to my little friend, I was like the other camp. I watched paid in full for the first time. We're seeing, really seeing it, and start seeing it. This is what Scott it was like. This is a good film. It's not like mind blowing. But then I want to put into context, like when this movie came out, I was you know, I understand why. It's a called PASSIC QUA came out. Any was decent, I it wasn't. I could watch whole thing and I wasn't upset that I watched it. Yeah, yeah, because like when people, when people talk about you, I could show now, obviously it's a classic for a reason, but peofore like and any people who went back to watch it recently, you're like, Oh, this is like Dragon Ball Z. You guys hate this up. Saying much, but it's still not the tarrent for me, because I think putting it into context is why it's probably...

...reason why I want to watch it. Like it just when did you? When did you? I could come out and eat midnights, when I early days, early Nice. That's part of the reason why I like. Okay, let me go back and see, like what does was? If I put it in context and see, like a big deal about this any was, I don't care if it's just okay, it does actually mind blowing, I still want to watch it. So, yeah, that's so funny. I recommended American psycho to someone, to people to watch at a party. They was enough party and I was. I haven't watched it, but I wou say I want to. I am DB top movies, or so American psychles. Yes, souch, this is all. What's this? Just like a gem DII. You can go tell me your story is not real. who also do something like that? And I was that that's what's this and as it as the movie was going, I was like, Oh my God, what, What does it get? Good. So, really, when you recommend something to someone, they just rubbish you. It's like I seven, I have beef. Yeah, I recommended. Asked me pomprint and she's like what the Heck did you recommend me? This ain't things. Is some bullshit. What do you mean? Is last piece? It's like about pump. Yeah, this is every session. That's go. Don't put it like that. You see it mature, cause, yeah, yeah, it's a move. was like what the first time I was mentioned? After that, I'm good. Yeah, it's so. What do you like? This like swatch right, possible? How much have you read? I got up to the part where's funny, but he's he's in middle school. ONCES, the middle reach the full madness yet. Yeah, he's in the Middle School. He's in middle school. Now he's with his mom and his uncle. But I think, think, for me, I think it's because it's been a very long time and I've read this to gener of Manga before. So I found it very slow, just very slow to E. I was like, come on, when, when's the sween's when the stuff gonna Happen, you know. So it's been like I'm trying to house, trying to hang in there. My patients was just running out. I was like, what is this? But you know, seen a tot of talk about it so positively. Oh now I now you care about my opinion. Really Pass between. I'll take this. It's not on the same level, spotine. So I'm want to I've got the book at home. I must you roll you left between. That's a different that's a separate podcast. What's that means that? Why are you getting us going to sit down the start and be like white, like, do you actually like we've got freeze in my last time procession, but because of mine in there reality, obviously, Christens is are going to have to like that. An'll know what I bought those money is you to come py session, but thinkers, those only person in fours and needs it. What? What about? Who is it. Holding Games and not playing at that is of serious issue. I have you know, I'm a collector. You I will, I will play these games. Youn make it something ominous eventually. No, but we went through this so that he's like, you be so sneaky y. So thats for gas. I could you for real this? Yeah, I was going after this. So happy,...

Sim happy, but not you pre drinking asking. Yeah, the damage pressures, I have them. Okay, Fu drinking. A shower would let's end it out the like. So one get that money, guy and intervention wanted misable video and I know segment we are saying that money up. I'll pray for you that you. What is this sound about drinking? It's all. I'll pretty that. You know depressed when you're drinking. And when I did try, guys thing it's saying. He said I wasn't on that night. I Don know to stegue from that. Black. On that note, please do let us know what enemy you think. Not anymy to anemy watches to watch for the first time, or even games and a man got to be fair. I'm pretty sure that the suggestion to you, anyway, man, go be completely different. I'd recommend anyone hut to read? WHAT'S THE QUINTA? Any T something? You Sleep? I see the SEM reminder like it's good man. It's like like yeah, if you know what you're there for, you're the if you're there for like loves and it's obviously it's obviously it's it's a josy and it's about romance, but it's not overwhelming about it. It's mostly about two characters that like you, trouble. That's what it is. It's about charage of like each other. Even then it's just about like their lives that the romance is obviously like a focal points, but it's not like like I even like I hesitate sometimes to pass the Toquis a romance because the rain like the main couple, that they're still very much in the early stages of the relationship, with just getting to know each other. It's like the sade couple. They're like they've been in like a ten year relationship and they because like all the old married couple, they're more like romantic in that sense. But yeah, it's just really yeah, you're just getting to know the characters. Yeah, the story is just really fun. Conquerors hockey. No, you don't know and IACT here. Sorry. Well, they do have in game characters. They all play the same more pegs and they all have like the abilities inside the game. The characters are cockles and but all different types. So there's one that's a game in one this is obsessive playing games, one that is obsessed with anemy. Man, God, that was obsessed with cossibly. I don't know what the other guy is. What's his bag is? This is just shown him. He's like he's like a Gamer as well. But yeah, yeah, you seem like a lot of like the girls on. I'm like, Oh, what a man like hero at all. Go He's at the name mine die because he's like a proper Gamer and he helps his girlfriend in this year six. She doesn't know how to like shee hot level of her character because she say by the game when he likes he's just basically like doing everything for her. There was a get me a man like that when I was watching the enemy, you know, who are full my men actually is in real life. That's publy just game. That's what this guy. This guy actually good at games to fly. He's probably two thousand and fifteen. Fifteen literally run the same age as well. But then that's the funny thing about it. We'd what to carry and then what's the Nime? Thank you. Brilliant. The movie. I don't know why they made it a musical. There's a lot of wasted potential there. Yeah, we can be readly cool, like comedy, one gum kind of thing. They just made it in the supple. I don't know why the yeah, a few before before I ended a few honorable mentions. For First of anime watches somewhere. A shampoo definitely up there. I will look. I will recommend you. I haven't watching you guys of my I can imagine it being a great animal first time watch her being for my power. WHOSE...

WOULD I recommend it? Since they say Zankiana Tara. Definitely recommend. Now the premise of it would be. Yes, really good, nice and death parade is as well. Yeah, definitely is a good for parasite to you press. Yes, yes, I agree with some maximum is. It's fairly easy to get into. But if you do enjoy, I don't know who's listening to this, does watch your watch animal or anything, but if you do, you enjoy, like so for hip hop, hip hop music or low fighting sumchumphous. Is Your bag? Absolutely bad man. Yeah, I think there's. Actually, I think if more people were maybe there's something intimidating about anime and mango. People think it's for like nerds, but there's there's genuinely an anyway manger for everybody. But if you look, if you real a watch or play anything, there's something you will find that you enjoy yourself. It's just a medium. Yeah, it's just another thing, it's just another piece of fiction or whatever. Let's see if you enjoy anything that involves any source sort of telling or even just mad even just my list TV, yeah, has a plot. So cool.
