I was actually expecting some dude to go pale and say "No homo!" and run away. :P
Yeah, that wouldn't surprise me a bit if it had happened.

Democratic Primary debates for 20. LET THE BLOOD-LETTING BEGIN! :ymdevil: Seems to be that these people are going to be so busy trying to cut each others throats that they're going to wear themselves out and we going to get another four years of Trump. Yay, us. :|

I've heard he's been talking about plagiarism? It was only one twitter comment, I think. Whether he actually said it or if it's got any truth to it remains to be seen.

I was in India when this happened and this is completely heartbreaking. People who worked on warmhearted shows I utterly loved. Many of the directors such as Yasihiro Takemoto (who was responsible for adapting Dragon Maid) perished in the fire too.

In all likelihood his reasons behind this will be insane. I am taking this very badly.

These guys consistently put out amazing shows like Violet Evergarden, Dragon Maid, k-On, lucky star, Clannad, a silent voice, the Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi, full metal panic and Nichijou. They deserved so much better than this for all the joy they gave people.

I've... seen things you people wouldn't believe.

Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion.

I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate.

All those moments will be lost in time...

like tears in rain...

Time to die.

Rest in peace, Rutger Hauer. :(( :(( :((

Nuuuuuuuuuuuu

More later

EDIT: So, this is so sad. :( And a bit weird, for me.

I cam across The King of Random about half a year ago, at a time when THE King of Random, Grant Thompson, was not even the host of the show anymore. I've never actually watched a video with him, just with the two new hosts (Calli! :x ) and did not even look deeply into why he handed over the reigns (wanted to spend more time with his family, it seems).

So when I was browsing CNN today, and saw yet another Youtube star had died, I took a few eyeblinks to think "I know that face..." and then I clicked on the article and was still very much shocked, despite my lack of direct association...

It's bitter that theoretically, if he had stayed on as host, this might not have happened... :|
