It doesn’t appear distinct enough...like Rogue One was so different for a Star Wars film.

I’d prefer a Kenobi film that plays out like Logan (ends with New Hope) or something like a mob movie involving the “bad guys” akin to a Goodfellas of space.

Hell, my girlfriend, who watched anime as a teenager, gives me shit about some of the stuff I watch. I got annoyed when I talked about crying during an episode of an anime and she said that was stupid because anime doesn't have stuff like that.
This really bothers me because for me, for so long, the appeal of anime is that it's a great "in-between" story-telling medium. It (generally) has visuals from childhood - specifically meaning that it's animated and generally looks cartoon-y - but it can also tell more dramatic stories that cartoons generally can't/don't/won't try for. Anohana was a HUGE tear-jerker and a fantastic way to look at how people deal with death and loss. Now and Then, Here and There is a brutal survivor's story and is amazingly painful for a show with such a light-hearted aesthetic. Madoka Magika is a show with amazing visuals and bright, hopeful characters set against a backdrop of loss and sacrifice. How could I forget the Tucker storyline in FMA? Or Hughes' plot? And that's not even mentioning the work that Studio Ghibli does! The Wind Rises and When Marnie was There both broke my heart, in different ways, and left me crying.

I've always been the kind of fan who uses their fandom like armor - this is stuff that I LOVE. And if someone else doesn't love it, that's fine, it doesn't have to be for everyone, but I also won't apologize for liking it either. DBZ, to me, has always been a great starting place for a conversation about anime, as most everyone has seen SOME of DBZ, or the Studio Ghibli films. Mononoke and Spirited Away were both pretty popular and well accepted movies, so using those as opening gambits to see how someone feels tends to go okay for me. From there it's just a matter of finding what someone likes. Oh you like serious dramas? Try Yugo the Negotiator. Fan of sci-fi stuff? Are we talking Firefly? Then I suggest Cowboy Bebop or Outlaw Star. Like a little more war in your sci-fi? There are about two dozen Gundams you can try!

There are, of course, people who won't care either way. I have a few co-workers who just aren't into the super-hero movie scene so they tend to get left out when me and the rest of the store is talking about Infinity War. And that's fine, they don't have to be interested, and I don't spend hours of my life trying to get them onboard.

Is Fox clearing house for a possible buyout?

Read something about it being due to Fox getting the rights to Thursday Night Football and needing to clear the space for it. The shows they canceled are also all shows that Fox doesn't own so they were paying to broadcast them.

Plus side, Brooklyn 99 is being picked up by NBC!

And Fox picked up Last Man Standing. But hey, it's been confirmed that Punisher is getting a Season 2 now. So I'm happy about that.

Of the two Childish Gambino songs released in the last month "Saturday" is a far superior song to "This is America"

I'm sorry but everytime I hear the name Childish Gambino I think of some Mafia-Themed cartoon show. "He's a brat, not a rat. Don't cross this underage boss! He's Childish Gambino!"

At this point he just needs to be Donald Glover, no more separation of actor and rapper.

He said he's retiring Childish Gambino after this next album. Who knows what he'll do from there.

Grimes is changing her name to c. In italics. As in "speed of light".

Nope. Just "C". Apparently her friends call her that because her birth name is Claire.
