    Kyoto Animation set on fire by sick [edited]

    The final number might be 33, but there are more seriously injured. Prayers for the departed and for their families, and prayers for those hurt so they may recover soon.

    Updates. Casualty numbers going up to 26. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-49027178 https://edition.cnn.com/2019/07/18/asia/kyoto-animation-fire-intl-hnk/index.html CNA says 30, then revises to 33. https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/asia/japan-kyoto-fire-animation-studio-injuries-dead-kyoani-11731372 I agree this company might be dead with the great loss of its talents. This is extremely tragic for the anime world.

    Technically, its three warships, one destroyer and two frigates, even if the HMS Duncan, a Type 45 destroyer, is looking more and more like a frigate these days. Chinese Navy decommissions. 884 Jingpohu, a Type 904 refueler. This can free their names for future Chinese frigates. Turkey has been formally kicked out of the F-35 program. Russia is developing a new AIP SSK. The Admiral Gorshkov heads home and likely going through the English Channel. Current vicinity includes two RN warships and a French frigate.

    The studio looks completely gutted. News seems to be getting worst. At least 12 maybe presumed dead and more people are missing. https://www.wsbtv.com/news/japanese-fire-official-says-12-people-presumed-dead-more-missing-after-kyoto-animation-studio-fire/968024334 https://www.theverge.com/2019/7/18/20698910/kyoto-animation-arson-attack-deaths-injuries-suspect https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-49027178 https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/multiple-deaths-arson-attack-at-kyoto-animation-anime-studio-1225232 A GoFundMe campaign has started, "Help KyoAni heal". This is among the most beloved of anime studios, rivaling Ghibli itself, for many iconic TV series and characters. With this level of damage and death among its personnel, I wonder how the studio can survive.
  6. A tragic day. At the time of writing, presumably 38 injured and at least one dead. RIP for those who died and condolences for their families.

    SinoAlice gets delayed. Not sure what happened. Nexon is doing the international publishing and localization of the game, although Square Enix does the publishing in Japan.

    Dr. Stone is definitely on my watch list. Others I am still exploring. So much shows to go through.

    AL looks pretty repetitive to me either, and side scrolling with sprites, might be regarded with this day and age, as being lazy coding. This might be a conceptual decision to allow the game to run on weaker phones, but that decision may bite as smartphones keep getting more powerful and the bar for these games keeps getting higher. 'Would be better for consoles' --- what's that? The enormous success of PUBG, Fortnite and other Battle Royale games on smartphones have shown how PC like games can massively succeed in smartphones. Games like Honkai Impact has shown that PC-console like triple A rated games can succeed very well in smartphones. You need to get past this mobile game stereotype. The newer generation of mobile games are blurring platform boundaries. Your Apple A12 or your Snapdragon 855 has way more processing and graphical grunt than the nVidia X1 on the Switch. Super Mecha Champions by NetEase. This company has been very successful with Knives Out and Rules of Survival. Game success can rely on two things. Game play and Great Story. Fate Grand Order has lousy game play but has Great Story. Fire Emblem Heroes has great game play but meh story. HI3 has both great game play and great story. We will need to see how Blue Wars can execute these basics. I am surprised how far FGO went considering its art assets are mediocre to say, FHE. The one consequence of having 3D models is that it takes more time and care to develop a 3D model which also requires animations and inverse kinetics (not to mention, boob physics). 2D is mainly just a art and sprites. Far more easier and quicker to draw more waifus and husbandoos for FGO and FHE than it would for lets say HI3 or Star Ocean Ananmesis which is why your waifu collection won't grow as fast on a 3D game. And yet you probably spend about the same amount of money on gacha on getting this much more expensive to develop 3D model than far cheaper 2D art. I do like getting my money's worth in equal developer's effort and art assets. This next video isn't from a console.

    Honkai Impact 3rd to get a new 3.3 update soon. Kiana is back with a new Ranger battlesuit and Bronya with her Cyberangel battlesuit Kiana feels more darker and mature now, not as kid like as before.

    Drawing trying to illustrate what is happening in the Hudong Zhonghua shipyards. This is pointing to three Type 075 LHDs under construction.

    Azure Lane UI? The UI in Azure Lane is similar to that of Honkai Impact 3rd, but further more, its also similar to that of NetEase and Tencent games. I think that came as a result of mobile game refining and streamlining, and that people prefer familiar over 'original' interfaces that are trying to be original for the sake of being original --- which doesn't really improve the learning curve of the game. 3D is more than just the models. It affects the way the game looks and plays, giving it more of a console, triple A rated game feel. Game looks to have high production values overall and doesn't give this 'just another mobile gacha game with 2D chibi sprites' stereotype impression.

    After Azur Lane and Kantai Collection, this should be just another naval girls game right? I would have dismissed this at this point. But.... Fk. This is the next generation.... Sample waifu. Comparison to Kantai Collection Arcade. Except that this is a dedicated arcade machine, not your smartphone. Abyss Horizon came out last year but I don't know what happened to it. It looks it can do a bit of polish.
