    The thing about the masks is it's not a "my body, my choice" sort of thing.
     
    It's not your body you're protecting when you wear a mask, it's other people's bodies. It's acting as a filter intended to reduce the particles you're putting out, far more than those potentially coming in. There are a high number of asymptomatic people, and they can still transmit the coronavirus to others. Wearing a mask is intended to reduce the risk of that spread.

    The Cing Collection: Trace Memory, Another Code R, Hotel Dusk and Last Window. 
     
    Adventure games and visual novels have seen a resurgence in recent years. I kind of see 2010 as a turning point for the genre: that was the year 999 came out in America, as well as the year Danganronpa made its debut (though that wouldn't come to America until 2014). A few other series had laid the groundwork for the genre in America, with Phoenix Wright being the most notable, but the adventure genre hadn't seen its comeback when Trace Memory came out in 2005. To put that year in perspective, that was the year after LucasArts cancelled Sam & Max: Freelance Police and the year before Telltale Games released the episodic of its Sam & Max series.
     
    The genre was floundering, but times have changed so much since then.

    Nintendo throws the term "Nindie" around a lot, and it would be a pretty big move if they took the step of making an indie character playable in Smash.
     
    We've seen indie spirits, Mii costumes, assist trophies and music, and even a trophy back in Smash Wii U, so Nintendo clearly recognizes the indie gaming fandom. Maybe it'll translate into a playable character, of which Shantae remains my pick.

    I would also support Shantae wearing her ninja outfit as one of her alts. There's a will, Nintendo, just find a Wayforward.

    I'd also draw comparisons to Sheik.
     
    Ninjas are tough, in general, in that while I have nothing against Ninjara in particular, if a ninja character was to make it into this Fighters Pass, I can think of several I'd rather have. Ryu Hayabusa, Strider Hiryu and Yoshimitsu are probably the most notable.

    Collectively, we're at 69 games beaten, though if everyone is indoors due to coronavirus, that number might be increasing soon.

    It's been ages since I played this one, but Parasite Eve was a unique RPG/Survival Horror experience from the PS1 days. What a night at the opera!
     
    It and its two sequels are available on the Vita, though I've only ever played the original, and that was back on the PS1.

    Not that anyone is paying attention, but Jacob Hornberger has now won the Libertarian primaries or caucuses in Iowa, Minnesota and California.
     
    Far more interesting are New Hampshire and North Carolina. New Hampshire, which as mail-in primary, was won by Vermin Supreme (with 26 votes, or 17.3% of ballots cast), while "No Preferene" topped the ticket in North Carolina with 2,060 votes. Hornberger was second there, with 604 votes. 
     
    I'd also point out that there is someone on the Libertarian ballot listed as Dan "Taxation Is Theft" Behrman. I want to stress that- the ballot literally included the words "Taxation Is Theft." Lincoln Chafee is also running for the Libertarian nomination. Remember him from 2016? No?

    A few potential starting options:
    1. The first show you added to your list: If you've been sitting on one awhile, you might as well stop incubating that egg and hatch it already. 
    2. The oldest show on your list: Is that show older than you are? Watch it already, it's only getting older! 
    3. A short show: 4,315 shows is a lot. If you watch a 200 episode anime, it reduces that number two 4,314. If you watch a two episode anime, it also reduces that number to 4,314. There are a bunch of two or three episode OVAs out there, as well as a number of movies, and quite a few of them are good. Watching a few of them will get that ball rolling. 
    4. Random: I just googled random anime, and there is literally site called randomanime.org that lets you generate an anime at random. Generate until you get one on your list, and run with it.
    5. Screw it, just watch Welcome to the NHK: It's good!
    6. Let Tyranogre decide: Do it.

    Random Number Generator. I assume that list is numbered, so hop on over to random.org, set the parameters to between 1 and 4,315, and start with whatever comes up.

    I highly doubt that Interspecies Reviewers would have been generating the same amount of buzz if Funimation was continuing to simulcast and dub it. 
     
    The mere act of stopping brings a lot of attention to the series. There are going to be people who check out the series to see why falls outside Funimation's standards. If something is controversial, people often seek it out to see what the buzz is all about.
