Nikkolas from Texas Relationship Status: Anime is my true love

So when I got into MHA last November I was told the dub is cdompletely caught up with the sub.

I don't follow many anime but this seems unheard of from what I can recall of my older da ys of following anime. Fairy Tail and Bleach and Naruto were always far, far behind their Japanese counterparts.

So what's the deal? Is it to do with the streaming service Funi has now or these simulcasts? Do all anime have that now?

Seasonal schedules are a lot more common for anime now, so thereís also that.

A lot of anime used to just run nonstop until they ended. Seasons were still a thing, I think, but you didnít get shows taking breaks in the middle. Happened a lot with shounen manga adaptations, but I was under the impression that it used to be standard for anime across the board. Might be wrong about that, but it definitely used to be more common. Nikkolas mentioned Naruto and Bleach, and I know it applies to those. Schedules like MHAís are a fairly recent thing.

Itís why a lot of older adaptations are full of padding and filler arcs, and why the Overtook the Manga trope isnít quite as omnipresent for long runners as it used to be. But yeah, I think stuff like simulcasts and streaming services mean more of an incentive for dubs to keep up.

How do you know when a new episode comes out on Funi's site?

I'm caught up with Fairy Tail and I don't know when to check for new eps.

The 1st TCPA hearing has concluded, and the result is that Vic has lost on the majority of the lawsuits.

  • Tortious interference claims have been completely dropped for ALL defending parties.
  • All of Jamie Marchi's claims have been dropped, though this was predicted as a likely possibility.
  • Civil conspiracy claims have been dropped for Funimation, but NOT Monica Rial or Ron Toye.
  • Defamation claims remain for Funi, Rial, and Toye.
  • The remaining claims shall be ruled on later, likely by the given October time frame.
  • Consensus seems to be that Vic's lawyer made several critical mistakes.
  • There's a bit of a divide on whether or not the judge also made errors, but eyewitnesses say otherwise.

Sep 7th 2019 at 11:56:43 PM

[up]Given that the divide is based on Nick's commentary, and how his main source of income is getting Vic fans to watch his livestreams talking about how strong Vic's case is, I don't put much stock in the claim that the judge made errors.

A GFM has been started and completed to pay for a transcript to the hearing (transcript was over $1,000) with any left over being donated to RAINN. That should give the clearest picture.

And people have started spamming the judge's Facebook page because of him ruling against ~80% of Vic's case, because that's not a bad idea.

Oh I agree, the Judge ruled fairly and all blame falls squarely on Vic's terrible lawyers.

Sep 8th 2019 at 2:09:26 PM

From the sounds if it the lawyer Vic picked up the day before conducted himself well and presented himself like an actual lawyer, but it was obvious that one day was not enough to catch up on.

As for his actual lawyer, reading the Twitter feeds of other lawyers and I see a lot of legitimate disgust for how poor a job he's done for Vic, especially considering how he had a quarter of a million dollars in funding.

Same things that would normally land you in jail.

I remember that it took years of misconduct from anti-video game crusader Jack Thompson for him to lose his legal license. But he also never forged signatures or faked notary claims.

That said Ty almost certainly could be sued for malpractice at this point.

It's been a while, so I'll just let off some steam.

@ Vic Mignogna : Uhh, I don't know what to say now. I was on his side the whole time but his lawyers blew it.

Now, I want to make it clear that while I think the #MeToo campaign had the right intentions and sexual harassment is terrible no matter who does it and to whom it's done, that campaign also made a precedent for some unscrupulous women to claim they got sexually harassed just to ruin some guy's life out of spite or otherwise, especially if it's a male celebrity.

@ MHA : Watched the first and third seasons of the dub and man, was I amazed. Funi definitely went Plus Ultra on this one.

  • Justin Briner as Izuku Midoriya reminds me of Erik Kimerer as Haruyuki Arita.

  • Christopher Sabat and J. Michael Tatum definitely went full ham with All Might and Iida, respectively, especially the former during the final battle against All For One. UNITED STATES OF SMAAAAAAASH!!~

  • John Swasey as AFO was amazing as well, guy is basically pure evil incarnate whether in Japanese or in English.

  • I was surprised to see some of the best known veterans in US voice acting among the cast, and every one of them did their respective characters very well. It was kinda hard for me to judge Monica Rial as Tsuyu at first due to Vic Mignogna's SH cases going on at the time I watched the dub, but Tsuyu as a character grew on me in both English and Japanese so it ended up okay, I guess.

  • I was also surprised to hear Josh Grelle as Tokoyami. I was like, is that freaking Akihisa as the deep-voiced dark birdman?

  • I believe MHA is definitely Clifford Chapin's breakout series. He did Bakugou so well I kinda wished he was casted as Accelerator instead of Austin Tindle. It's hard to judge Austin as Monoma, however, because the character is just so forgettable other than his inordinate hate of Class 1-A.

  • The only character I liked better in Japanese than in English is Aizawa.

Specifically only 2-8% of reported accusations are false as per the FBI. There are far more rapes that are never reported than there are false ones.

Plus again, Vic has confessed to almost all accusations and is just trying to argue that they were all consensual.

Sep 30th 2019 at 4:50:20 PM

So the case will likely wrap up this week. On Wednesday there's mediation between all parties to try and get things settled before the judge gives his TCPA decision. If they don't come to an agreement then the judge hands his decision down on Friday which is expected to either be a complete dismissal or close To, with the last carve getting dismissed before it goes to a jury.

Hopefully whatever happens ends this definitely so it can all be put in the past.

Yeah, hopefully this'll be over with and the voice actresses and his many victims can move on with their lives. Wash their hands of this and be done with.

Mediation ended in an impasse so no settlement. The financier for Vicís case for lack of a better word got permanently banned from Twitter for insulting other lawyers, and the judge completely dismissed Vicís entire case.

So we finally done?

And does Vic have to pay reparations?

For this stage of the trial they still have to have a hearing on how much Vic owes; Legal Fees (which the judge reviews to make sure the defence hasn't inflated part of their bill) and then discussing additional sanctions to discourage Vic from filing any further meritless lawsuits. Normally if legal fees are high enough - and given that Vic will have to pay most if not all of 6 law firms worth of lawyers they will easily be in the 6 figure range - courts will not put in additional sanctions, but given that he's used a GFM to pay his legal fees to date whilst the defendants all paid out of their own pocket an argument could be made that he's financially insulated himself from the cost of this lawsuit so far so the sanctions will be needed. Weather the judge agrees is another matter.

Then Vic can appeal, and given that mediation failed I imagine he will (unless the bill for one reason or another convinces him it's better to just take the loss, or the bond request for appeal is so high that he choses not to make it). That will take about 1-2 years to get through appellate course due to caseload, at which point he will lose again and have to pay even more legal fees.

This whole thing has been such a mess that I'd be surprised if he didn't just want to be done with it all.

What about the accusations against Chris Sabat? Haven't heard much about them in a while.

but HOW?

Accusation, singular.

Only one guy made the claim (who also sided with Vic) & nothings come up of it since in over a month I think. Apparently itís already been debunked by other VAís & such.
