    Happy birthday, Tami!

Injuries matter, age and practice matter, size matters, ground game matters (though being a kung fu movie don't expect too elaborate choreography here). It's heartwarming yet never shields the characters from the consequences of their actions or their failures. And it has some meaningful character arcs that bring earned narrative satisfaction without magically fixing everything. I think you might enjoy it.
    I will 100% check this out, thanks for the recommend, Falcon!

    We get it, you like Tall Mommy Vamp.
    Yeah, but if you... man, we're getting into weird analogy territory, like if you disintegrated Superman's arms he wouldn't be able to go "fool! Little did you know that my arms and I are one and can be remade from me!" and will his arms back into being from pure nothingness. - Pendaran

    So, for the algorithms thread, I am currently reading Dragon Ball and Trigun in parallel and hoo boy is it a weird mix to go from one to the other.

    I've not actually sat down and read Dragon Ball in like... more than a decade beyond skimming for feats but with this read-through I am, as a man in my 30s, acutely aware of how much this series is for young children. Like, I had forgotten quite how kid focused it was.

    As a result, I am enjoying Trigun a lot more which is both aimed more at my demographic and is generally more my sort of thing.

    No idea who that might be, but the first thought that come to me was Yamcha. How long has it been since he has had any significant role in the series? Though there are plenty fo other characters that have fallen to the wayside over the years.

    It's not going to be Yamcha.

    It's never going to be Yamcha.

    Wouldn't be surprised if it's another movie villain that gets their canon debut.

    But I wonder how this is going to mesh with what's going in the last two, so far, manga exclusive arcs.
