  1. Well I do think that for casual drivers, automatic would be the preferred choice of the majority. But for motorsports enthusiasts, I would guess they would prefer to drive Manual. There is just this satisfying feeling of control on how you rev the engine. Especially for racing drivers, they need a certain amount of precision in gear ratio to exact accurate control of the speed especially when turning corners. I'm very sure that it's very difficult to drift using an automatic transmission.
  2. From where I come from, this question is rather strange, as I grew up in a place where manual transmission is a standard, and automatic transmission are more geared towards luxury vehicles. I learned to drive using stick shift, and have been driving so almost half my life. Of course right now I drive a CVT because of issues with my knee. Not to mention this is a godsend during hour long traffic jams. There are less vehicles coming out now with manual transmission. So, I was wondering, in your part of the world, what type of transmission are most commonly used? And what would be your preference?
  3. Batman won't be the same for me without the epic voice of Kevin Conroy.

    Nice collection! Good to see another fellow who appreciates Lamborghini. I myself is an Aventador enthusiast. Though the real one eludes me still, as I don't see myself spending $300K for it any time soon.
  5. Wow! This is cool! First time I've seen Godzilla do a drop kick! I like the way how agile they made the Kaiju fight.
  6. At last, something to contribute to. I recently managed to get my hands on this: I've been looking for this for quite some time now.
  7. I'm actually very guilty of necroposting. If the information posted is relevant and would spark new discussion, I don't think it's a bad thing. There's a balance between reviving an old topic or creating a new duplicate one. So it's up to the administrator to determine how rigid they should enforce the policies. For one thing, I don't think I've ever seen any forum policies posted in these parts, which I also don't think is necessary at the moment as we've been conducting discussions and observing the common courtesy.
  8. Ooh! Operation Galactic Storm. I have that. Well, part of it anyway. Mostly the Captain America chapters. I'll try to see if I can still dig up my Captain America 400.
  9. Very interesting read. I don't think I need to bother translating this as google translate seems to work just fine. I am a bit surprised that Steve Wang holds the rights to Dark Hero.
  10. I just got into Mushoku Tensei, Jobless Reincarnation. Loved it so much that I've read the manga, and the Light novel is currently sitting on my tablet. Just Finish SAO vol 26, and now just Finishing vol 7 of the World's Finest Assassin before I can proceed with the Mushoku Tensei Light Novel. Mushoku Tensei has a very deep lore and I found out that the anime skips a lot of details so I went ahead and read the Manga. They really do skip a lot of details, so I'm wondering how they will treat some of the skipped content when these becomes relevant in future episodes.
  11. With the way the world is turning out, we really could use some Cronos right about now...
  12. Just saw this the other day. Well, it's as GotG as GotG can get. Nice end for the movie and wondering if it will lead to anywhere since James Gunn is now heading DC studios. I also noticed that Nathan Fillion's appearance in many of James Gunn's film. I just wish we had seen more of the Original Guardians of the Galaxy (Vance Astro, Martinex, etc..)
  13. Well, the results I got is a little more palatable: In a final, climactic battle between Guyver and the sinister Chronos organization, Sho Fukamachi (Guyver) faces off against the powerful Zoalord leader, Archanfel. The fate of humanity hangs in the balance as the two mighty beings clash with unimaginable power. Throughout the fight, Sho's determination and growth as the Guyver have been evident. With the support of his allies, he manages to hold his ground against Archanfel, who is desperate to exert his control over all of humanity. As the battle intensifies, Sho taps into the full potential of the Guyver Unit, reaching a level of power previously unseen. He unveils new abilities and tactics, surprising even Archanfel. With every punch and blast, Sho fights not just for his survival but for the freedom and future of Earth. In a shocking turn of events, it is revealed that Archanfel is not the true mastermind behind Chronos' sinister plans. There is a hidden force manipulating events from the shadows, using Chronos as a mere pawn in a much grander scheme. With this revelation, Sho realizes that the true enemy lies beyond Archanfel and Chronos. He sets his sights on confronting this hidden antagonist, who has been pulling the strings behind the scenes. In a thrilling final showdown, Sho faces the true mastermind, a being of immense power and malevolence. The battle tests every ounce of Sho's strength, determination, and spirit. Yet, with the support of his friends and allies, Sho finds the strength to overcome even this ultimate challenge. In the end, Sho emerges victorious, defeating the true mastermind and breaking the control that has plagued humanity for so long. With the threat of Chronos and its manipulators gone, peace slowly returns to the world. However, the fight has taken its toll on Sho, and the Guyver Unit is heavily damaged. Recognizing the immense danger that the Unit poses, Sho makes the difficult decision to relinquish its power. He entrusts the damaged Guyver Unit to a secret organization that promises to keep it safe and out of the wrong hands. Having saved the world and earned his freedom, Sho decides to lead a peaceful life, cherishing the memories of his heroic days as the Guyver. He remains vigilant, knowing that new threats may arise in the future, but he embraces a newfound sense of hope for humanity's future. The manga ends with Sho Fukamachi, no longer the Guyver, walking into the sunset, leaving behind a legacy of bravery and heroism that will be remembered throughout history.
  14. I just saw this the other night. It was alright, I guess. No annoying humans or transformers. Unicron was a let down. Or maybe I was too influenced by the voice of Orson Wells. Then again, so much material was wasted. Also just found out that Pete Davidison did the voice of Mirage. So I guess that explains a lot. So Hasbro-verse? A post credit scene that would probably lead to nowhere.
  15. Looks like a message from Takaya. It's a little blurry for me to make out but it says something like after the serialization way back in 85, he always wanted to release a book about his Guyver Illustration from a long time ago . And mentions something about comics cover, foldout pinup, various jackets, figrure package and etc. Message was made last June 2023.
  16. I'm really liking how their naming them. Papsinoid!!!
  17. Ok, no luck. Seems that I wasn't able to back up the old files. So would appreciate it if someone could point me to the right direction. Man, 11 years and we're still not done with this.
  18. Ok, I'm bored and I was thinking of continuing to translate this. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to backup the pages to my NAS so I currently have no access to the novel. I'll have to check if the files are still in my old PC. But just in case I don't, would anyone be a dear and point me to the right direction?
  19. It's so cool that you were able to get those issues. Do you have any Jim Lee during his Punisher stint? My frustrations is that back issues are very hard to come by where I live. And what is usually available are those issues with significant relevance (like first appearance, first cover, first etc.), which usually sell at an insane amount of money.
  20. Just finished Nier Automata ver 1.1a. Currently following Oshi no Ko (reading the manga after watching), My unique skill makes me OP Even at Level 1, Bleach thousand years war arc, and just finished Dead Mount Death Play (currently reading the manga).
  21. Well, season one is done. There are slight differences from the game but they almost captured it 1:1. That's ending A basically. So all the feels is much later in the game. Then again, the scene from the last episode hit me much harder in the game. The ending seems to set up the events for later, but I'm wondering if this gets renewed for another season. I'm also wondering if the next season will be on 9S perspective (which I doubt since ending B is already the title for episode 1) or go straight to A2 perspective.
  22. The artbook is released today. For those who bought it, how is it? Anything to drool over?
  23. It's a free special poster to celebrate the release of the artbook.
  24. Okay, I am a little embarrassed to say that I was only able to watch this the other day. I did enjoy the film, but there are certain nitpicks that I wanted to point out. They certainly goofed up that Batfleck (lots and lots of things wrong with how he was portrayed), and certainly made Keaton Batman really cool. I still don't like Ezra Miller as the Flash. He really runs funny. And I really found that they did Henry Cavill dirty here. All of the original Justice league was in the film except Cavill (and of course Ray Fisher because of his harsh words). They even included a Nick Cage Superman and didn't even have the decency to include Cavill? and CGI Cameo, really? And replacing Affleck with Clooney is the cherry on top. Really? The guy who literally killed the Franchise, and who openly admitted to playing Batman Gay? Despite the film being quite passable as a stand alone movie, you can see that there are a lot of politics involved in the making of this film. I'm not happy with the way they made this, but I will give James Gunn the benefit of the doubt because he came in late on the game. If Gunn caved to the management's pressure, Superman Legacy will also be doomed.
  25. Cool! If I was 20 years younger and have a lot more time on my hands, I'd probably dab my hands on 3D printing. Alas, responsibilities awaits. (not to mention my wife would kill me for buying an expensive 3D printer. It's already hard enough to sneak in small toys!!)
