@MochaKoffee there's someone out there who's really into trains and a big Eva fan who would absolutely lose their shit over this

@MochaKoffee I'm sure it's more popular but I still like the cheap hand drawn stuff better lol

@MochaKoffee I've always loved the look of 70s anime, and Gundam is one of the better looking (and plotted) shows from that era so I don't know what those folks are smoking lol

@MochaKoffee Eva just had the misfortune of developing a reputation for being deep within anime circles in the west, and then it escaped that sphere and mainstream critics picked it up and ran with the established idea of it having some sort of obscure meaning and tripping all over themselves in the process

youtubers could have saved the effort by watching like, one series of early Gundam

@MochaKoffee > giant iron corporation flattening the landscape

no idea what that's supposed to mean

I've always seen it as a deeply sincere portrait of growing up and beginning to develop an understanding of how the world works. it's never seemed like a difficult show to get, other than the otaku directed jokes that maybe English speaking viewers didn't get at the time, but that shouldn't be the case anymore lol

@MochaKoffee whenever I see people talk about how goofy and wacky FLCL is, as if it's Sgt Frog, I'm always convinced they didn't actually watch it

@MochaKoffee I'm a heathen who thinks the original series is a better paced show, while Brotherhood has the better character writing so I have no idea how it got the top spot.

feels like they didn't want to just stick Cowboy Bebop on the top spot because that's not interesting or controversial lol

@MochaKoffee great list for people catching up on their shonen, terrible in all other metrics lol

@MochaKoffee @triumph_forks as one of those GCN kids, this is correct. I had no idea the GCN was selling poorly, and was super happy with the games it had. some of my favorite Nintendo games were the GCN ones. me and my siblings put a few thousand hours on my GCN to the point it stopped working

when I got a Wii it played GCN games more than Wii ones lol

@mewfeuille @MochaKoffee hm, I know I uploaded some stuff there but I cannot remember for the life of me the fucking dumb username I used because I didn't want to use imagamingfreak lol

@MochaKoffee it's just ridiculous when the top streamers and even the mid range streamers that everyone on the platform watches represent such a tiny percentage of streamers on twitch. if you average more than like 3 viewers on a stream you're in the top 95th percentile or something

there's only a few thousand streamers who are full time, if that. acting like they can't afford to pay these people because of server costs is disingenuous beyond belief considering the money that comes in

@MochaKoffee "we don't want small streamers to feel left out, so we think it's fair to pay everyone less, because that's the best for the community

no we couldn't have paid everyone more, what are you talking about us being a 11 billion dollar company."

@MochaKoffee I've been to torrent sites with less ads than twitch lol

just a really shitty way to treat their streamers. a lot of partners are saying it's better to just cancel the contract, go back to affiliate and collect 50/50 while simultaneously streaming on other platforms now

@MochaKoffee also don't point out that the trillion dollar company who owns us owns the servers we host on

@MochaKoffee I like how they cite how streamers who stream 200 hours per month is very expensive for them as if that isn't like a fraction of a fraction of one percent of people who stream on twitch
