Wasn't really interested in this movie, Miles Morales, or any of the multiverse versions of Spider-Man at first (aside from Spider-Man Noir maybe, but he looks very cartoonish instead of his usual dark and gritty self here), and this was in spite of me being a huge Spider-Man fan (and even that's an understatement). But this video's got me thinking back on what got me into loving the character so much in the first place, and it seems that the film might just pay tribute to the spirit of Spider-Man's character within rather than just all the superficial powers and aesthetics on the surface. If so, then not only is it a great send-off for Stan Lee, having created such an amazing character (pun intended), but would also bring back my love of Spider-movies (Homecoming was meh and didn't do much for me).

The film is released on the 13th this month in my country. Can't wait.

On a sidenote, I haven't bothered watching movies at the theater for a long time, outside of MCU films (except Ant-Man). The next film I might be watching at all would be Captain Marvel, then Avengers 4.

Edit: This movie has a perfect Rotten Tomatoes score. I know RT ratings hardly amount to much, but a perfect score is still something uncommon.

Edit 2:

See this guy's other video about the death of the creative spirit that once drove Pixar studios if you want more context on the above video.

Personally, despite being a huge Pixar fan, I absolutely agreed. Incredibles 2 was a snooze-fest, saying nothing new about superheroes or the characters of The Incredibles. It's a rehash, a plain cash-grab, a nostalgia-trip.

Discovered PSP opening for Aselia.

And... I kind of surprised how different this is in tone from the OP used in the English version. I don't know. I wouldn't exactly call it unfitting, but I feel like it makes a pretty wrong impression about what the game is actually about.

Here's the other OP:

Also something for people who read Tokyo Babel,

This is actually a very good showing of the situation that occurred at Setsuna's home planet, tbh the first time I read that part it took quiet a while for me to understand the reason.
Purposeless live is indeed literally hell.

Quite an interesting experiment. :-) On the other hand, extrapolating these results to human society is imo a bit risky and may have some dangerously incorrect implications. Humans have a lot more ways to entertain themselves, and, unlike mice, they are perfectly capable of looking for the meanings of their own lives even without external troubles. Unlike mice, we have art and science, and at the same time we will never be able to create the same type of utopia for ourselves, there are just too many of us on this planet. So, I don't know, I wouldn't pay the results of this experiment too much attention.

And, to be honest, I never really liked this part in Tokyo Babel, for similar reasons.

Well yeah exact results won't apply, but it is undeniable that a void will be created - one that would be needed to filled properly with other interests. You know even for mice some of them adapted -beautiful ones- so adapting is definitely possible, just the ratio is unknown. If this change happens slowly over time with everyone slowly getting used to the change it would be alright, though on the other hand a sudden lack of purpose would make quiet a few people mentally unstable.
Using that exact scenario in human case is arguably an extreme case but definitely a possible one.

One that might have taken place for Babel's case.
Also there too not everyone is out of grips, the scientists in particular who were the one's responsible for Setsuna are the prime examples as they handled it fine by getting invested in science as you had implied. 
In that world though majority couldn't make the transition, resulting in anarchy. Again such anarchy literally killing everyone is doubtful, but a possible worst case scenario may indeed result in the 'end of the world'.
And in Babel's defense there was literally a multi-verse cataclysm (lot of worlds ending) going on, so things veering in ways that lead to the worst case is somewhat understandable.

So, apparently, one of my favorite isekai light-novels will soon get an an anime adaptation. I guess, this is not unexpected, considering that this LN is actually very popular in Japan (and it recently got an official localization announced too, which is very cool :vanilla:).

I try to be not too excited though. This story is extremely slow paced, and typically stories like that don't transfer to the anime format very well. Still, it's interesting to see that something different from the usual "reincarnated into an rpg world and killing all enemies with a slight cough" gets turned into an anime.
