You're right. Geralt of Rivia kills them all whenever they cross paths and that's made the roads much safer. Toss a coin to your fucking witcher.

TCGF Donghua Masterpost: How to Watch Legally!~
✨First things to know:✨
There are two places to watch: the official Bilibili App/Website, or Bilibili's YouTube Channel.
Episodes are going to be simulcast, with hard-coded English subtitles on launch!
Both are paid services, if you want to watch on-release as it airs. Price varies per region.
You can also watch for free on YouTube two weeks after an episode airs live. You will not be able to watch for free on Bilibili except for ep1.
The YouTube channel will only have free episodes for a limited time, so if you are watching for free, do not dally! They will be locked behind a paid sub after some time, too.
IMPORTANT: The TGCF donghua on YouTube is region-locked. (Unavailable countries: North/Central/South America, United Kingdom, Ireland, Japan, South Korea, New Zealand, Australia.) But if you are affected, you can use a VPN. Just pay for the sub and then use VPN.
ALTERNATIVELY: Everyone can watch on the Bilibili website, as it has no region locks! You can pay on the website via PayPal!
The Bilibili app itself is region-locked, but Android users can easily use an APK (and pay with GooglePay) to circumvent this. iOS users are best off sticking to the website only, but some counties may allow the app to be downloaded (just check first).
You will need a Bilibili account if you're going to use the Bilibili App/Website. But it's not difficult to make (guide will be linked below), and if you have one for the TGCF manhua, you can just use that one.
✨"Bilibili or YouTube?"✨
Short answer: Bilibili is better overall, especially the website. But there are pros and cons of each, so you can decide for yourself.
Pros of YouTube:
Easy to navigate for English speakers
Straightforward to subscribe, via Google/Apple Pay, or PayPal
Cons of YouTube:
Region-locked for many countries
Require a VPN if so
Subscription is more expensive in certain regions
Pros of Bilibili:
Website is not region-locked, no VPN required
Can use PayPal to pay for sub via website, or GooglePay/Apple Pay via mobile app
Subscription is cheaper
Cons of Bilibili:
Little confusing to navigate if you don't know Chinese
App is region-locked on Google Play/Apple App Store, and iOS users cannot download APK to get around this unlike Android users (but everyone can still use website!!!)
⚠️Please expand the following visual guides, as tumblr heavily compresses them for your dash.⚠️
The paid subscriptions are just channel-based.
YouTube has tiered subscriptions. "MBBM lv2" is the tier you want, in order to watch both episodes 1 & 2 on launch (October 31st). "MBBM lv1" will only have access to episode 1, thus putting them one week behind the lv2 viewers.
Go to: "youtube [.] com/channel/UCQFy MGc60N MCd6H Ck0ZPA" (remove spaces and brackets)
How to subscribe on YouTube:
If you are from one of the region-locked countries, you can use a VPN after purchasing the subscription. If you don't have a paid VPN, you can use a free one like ProtonVPN (suggested by many fans, who have verified it works with the 2nd PV, as that is currently region-locked too).
✨Bilibili Website Guide✨
You will need a Bilibili account. If you have one for the manhua, for example, you can just use those same credentials. If you need to make a new account, please see the end of this post for a link on how to make one.
There are no tiers for the Bilibili subscription; it's just one flat price.
You can choose to buy the 3 month subscription, which will allot you 93 days--more than enough for the airing of the donghua. You can also pay monthly if you wish. (There are other lengths too, but you likely do not need/want them.)
Go to: "Bilibili [.] com" (remove spaces and brackets)
How to subscribe on the Bilibili Website:
Be sure to follow the 天官赐福 page on Bilibili afterwards!~
✨Bilibili App Guide✨
If the app is region-locked in your country (most likely is), please download the APK via APKPure!!!!!!! There are two versions of the app, and the one from the Bilibili home page is not the one you want because it requires AliPay/WeChat Pay/etc, all of which require Chinese credentials.
Due to the probable need of using an APK to get it, using the app is only easy for Android users! If iOS users are able to download the correct version of the app, however, the guide is much the same.
I have a guide on how to know which app is the right one, if needed. See below this section.
How to subscribe on the Bilibili app:
Once you pay on the app, you'll be able to watch anywhere!
If you need to make a new Bilibili account, check out the instructions on this reddit post: "reddit [.] com/r/FinalGearEN/comments/di6tme/bilibili_account_registration_guide/" (remove spaces an brackets)
‼️Differences between Bilibili Apps:‼️
I'm not sure if the alternative version of the app works with PayPal in other regions, but it didn't give me the option when I tried, even when I logged in. Thus, my guess is no, and that only the website offers PayPal, but the "correct" version of the app offers via Google Play.
✨"When should I pay?"✨
Probably a few days before the donghua releases would get you the most bang for your buck. If you are paying via Bilibili and doing the 3 month sub (93 days), you can pay basically anytime between now and October 31st and have enough days left on your sub for all 11 episodes. (Unless there is a random mid-season break, but I doubt that.)
Hope this helps! If you have questions, feel free to send in an ask!
And sorry for the ugliness of these images. Graphic design is not my passion as you can see.... 😂

How To Play Japanese Mobile Games On iOS Without Making A New Apple ID Or Downloading Third Party Software
Hey guys! I found this quick and easy trick after installing the new Bungou Stray Dogs: Mayoi mobile game and being unable to download the first update due to the different App Stores.
Due to changes in Apple and iTunes features with the latest updates, all other tutorials one may have used to get a Japanese Apple account before now are completely invalid - I know, I’ve been trying all day lmao This method worked really well for me and I’m able to get back into the game, so I hope it works just as well for you!
Please Note that this is an iOS only method and I personally have no experience with any other mobile OS, so I’ll be unable to help you further. I’m very sorry about that.
Let’s Get Started~
First, go into your Apple Account settings through the App Store (by clicking on your display picture at the top right corner of the screen.)
Choose the Change Country/Region option and choose it again on the next screen. (Ignore the message that tells you you’ll have to add in an extra payment option).
Scroll down the list of countries and choose Japan, then Agree to the Terms and Conditions shown on the next screen. You’ll then be taken here:
(Please Note that there will be slight differences in the screens as I’ve taken screenshots of the UK information form, but the information I have provided is all that you need to proceed)
This is very important: Click ‘NONE’ under the payment method options to avoid being prompted to add information for a valid Japanese credit or debit card.
After that, scroll down and fill out the billing address form. You can’t progress until you fill out this form, so you need to put in “realistic” information coinciding with a random area in Japan for it to authenticate properly. Don’t worry about this form being for Billing, you won’t be asked for any personal or incriminating details since you have chosen NONE.
To save some time, here is the information I entered into the form (and it worked):
Street: Nishishinjuku 6-12-6
Drop down box: Hokkaido
Post Code: 160-0023
Phone: 03 3344-511
Click ‘Next’ and your profile will be set up with the Japanese information. You will now be able to access the Japanese store and perform necessary updates.
If you wish, you can change your original details back the way they were for peace of mind (you will have to anyway to update any non-Japanese apps), but you will have to do this method again if your Japanese games require another update.
PLEASE NOTE that you MAY be able to choose PayPal as a payment option above, if you really want to be able to purchase in-app features. I haven’t tried this option but I imagine that since billing address and payment options are included in your PayPal, you won’t have to put in any of the address information.
The NONE option is the easiest way, and I’m not sure if there would be any authentication problems if the card and address details associated with the PayPal account aren’t correct for a Japanese account transaction.
I hope this guide helps you all out and if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch, I’ll help out in any way I can~

Cartoon Network and [adult swim]: 4/2—4/8
The new series Craig of the Creek will continue to air episodes every hour through April 5, with another new episode Monday at 7.
Apple & Onion, a cartoon that has already ended earlier, replaces We Bare Bears’s 3pm hour slots on weekdays. We might still get to see them on Sunday, but that all depends on unexpected changes that could happen on Friday.
Both Ben 10 and OK KO! Let’s Be Heroes have half-hour specials, respectively titled The 11th Alien (AKA, Shockrock) and You’re In Control (Season 1 Finale), which premieres on Friday at 6, followed by another new episode of Craig of the Creek.
The reboot nobody fucking wanted, The Powerpuff Girls, returns with new episodes on the day of the death slots, Sundays at 4. This week, Bliss returns in a sequel to The Power of Four, titled Never Been Blissed.
Mighty Magiswords also return with new episodes, but not until the following week.
The new [adult swim] animated series, Ballmastrz: 9009 (from the same person that also created Superjail!, Christy Karacas) premieres Sundays at midnight as double-headers. Here’s a trailer. I think you’re gonna love it.
And speaking of Superjail!, that show and Metalocalypse will replace Eric Andre and Tim & Eric weeknights at 1am.
Mr. Pickles Season 3 switches to “rerun mode,” as it, and Hot Streets, move down 30 minutes in the lineup after Ballmastrz: 9009.

The Justice Department accused Google of illegally protecting its monopoly over search and search advertising in a lawsuit filed on Tuesday, the government’s most significant legal challenge to a tech company’s market power in a generation.
In a 57-page complaint, filed in the U.S. District Court in the District of Columbia, the agency accused Google of locking out competition in search by obtaining several exclusive business contracts and agreements. Google’s deals with Apple, mobile carriers and other handset makers to place its search engine as the default option for consumers accounted for most of its dominant market share in search, the agency said, a figure that it put at around 80 percent.
“For many years,” the suit said, “Google has used anticompetitive tactics to maintain and extend its monopolies in the markets for general search services, search advertising and general search text advertising — the cornerstones of its empire.”
The lawsuit signals a new era for the technology sector. It reflects pent-up and bipartisan frustration toward a handful of companies — Google, Amazon, Apple and Facebook in particular — that have morphed from small and scrappy companies into global powerhouses with outsize influence over commerce, speech, media and advertising. Conservatives like President Trump and liberals like Senator Elizabeth Warren have called for more restraints over Big Tech.
The suit will also be a major test of antitrust law. Many Democrats argue that the laws need to be adjusted to account for the digital era, when many products are free and it can be more difficult to prove the harm to consumers from a company’s firm grip on a market.
Attorney General William P. Barr, who was appointed by Mr. Trump, has played an unusually active role in the investigation. He pushed career Justice Department attorneys to bring the case by the end of September, prompting pushback from lawyers who wanted more time and complained of political influence. Mr. Barr has spoken publicly about the inquiry for months and set tight deadlines for the prosecutors leading the effort.
The lawsuit may stretch on for years and could set off a cascade of other antitrust lawsuits from state attorneys general. About four dozen states and jurisdictions have conducted parallel investigations and are expected to bring separate complaints against the company’s grip on technology for online advertising. Eleven state attorneys generals, all Republicans, signed on to support the federal lawsuit.
A victory for the government could remake one of America’s most recognizable companies and the internet economy that it has helped define since it was founded by two Stanford University graduate students in 1998. The Justice Department did not immediately put forward remedies, such as selling off parts of the company, in the lawsuit. Such actions are typically pursued in later stages of a case.

A work I did for an art group I joined. We had this activity to make an OC out of a phone brand. Kinda butchered it with the colors though. I'm... thinking of quitting the group though. The deadlines are too short and I don't do well with those kind of stuff. It makes me feel pressured and anxiety ;-;

Cartoon Network and [adult swim]: 3/19—3/25
Spring is about to start! And what better way to start your spring than to watch only 6 shows on the weekday! There are also more Ben 10 slots at random times on this week.
Also, we now have Apple & Onion in a fixed time slot throughout the weekday: right in the middle of their lineup.
This weekend, we will see a bit more Teen Titans GO! than last time. And also, their 2nd movie of this year will be......Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip! Which has a Rotten Tomatoes score of.....
Yeah, that’s what you get for premiering on the same weekend Star Wars: Episode VII premieres. Cartoon Network is like that lazy-ass mom who just can’t decide what movie to buy for her wild, hard-to-control kids from the movie bargain bin.
Remember that music video Dialing for Dollars that was supposed to air earlier this month? Well, it got pushed back to this week instead. Also, apparently they’re airing Final Space every week now....yep.
That’s it for Outlaw Star. Beginning on March 24, Space Dandy moves up a notch, and double the Bebop.
The Mr. Pickles Season 3 Finale will air this Sunday. It’s appropriately titled, “Season 3 Finale.”
Here’s what’s NEW NEW NEW NEW! this week:
Ben 10 - Assault on Pancake Palace, High Stress Express - Monday at 6
OK KO! Let’s Be Heroes! - The Perfect Meal, Hope This Flies - Monday at 6:30

Williams Stream - Late Friday night at 4
Toonami - Every Saturday night from 10:30p-4a
Mike Tyson Mysteries - Sunday at 11:30
Mr. Pickles - SEASON 3 FINALE, Sunday at midnight

Hunting apples at Pomochan ('pommes aux champs' ? )
I've been waiting for this since August. 25 000 apple trees, all branches bend heavily with the perfect fruits. I didn't know much about apple cultivars that are being grown in France, but I certainly wanted the ones that come in October-November and last the whole winter if kept in cave. Today we got Idared, Pinova, Crimson and Chantecler: a case of ~15 kg for 10 euros and gathering the apples from trees by hand -- priceless. Someone's gonna be making apple cakes every week 🍎😶🍏
