Hoshiai No Sora/Stars Align is the best new anime you aren't watching



With a new anime season just starting, there's a plethora of new shows to catch up on. Hoshiai No Sora wasn't a show that was on my radar, because to be honest high school sports anime are hardly really my thing. Watching a show about high schoolers being really really passionate about sports just isn't relatable to me. But I was bored, so I just decided "why not?" after seeing a few recommendations. And boy, am I glad I decided to check this show out.

tl/dr: Hoshiai No Sora is a high school sports anime that touches on some pretty dark topics in a fairly realistic manner. It balances kids being kids and enjoying their sports club with some unsettling plotlines about their home lives really well. It's also available to watch on Hulu, with new episodes coming out every Thursday.

Weekend Box Office: 'Joker' and 'Maleficent' Neck & Neck for #1


Joker seems to be edging out Maleficent by under a million dollars this weekend, with each of them making between $18 and $19 million, but they could switch places when the numbers are finalized tomorrow. The Addams Family, Zombieland 2 and Countdown rounded out the top five. The Current War flopped with less than $3 million, dismal for a wide release, while The Lighthouse made slightly over $3 million in fewer theaters.

Game of Thrones writers talk about how incompetent they are at the Austin Film Festival


  • Writers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss did a talk at the Austin Film Festival where they basically confirmed they lucked their way into the jobs by being white males who failed upwards

  • When they met with George R. R. Martin he asked them what their writing and TV background was and they admitted they had no experience

  • They showed their pilot to their industry friends (including Chernobyl writer Craig Mazin). Everyone who read it told them it was terrible

  • HBO hated the pilot and only didn't cancel the show because they had already sold enough of the foreign rights to make it profitable

  • Two months before the series aired HBO literally had to sit them down and force them to write extra material because the scripts were way too short

  • The only reason they wrote all the eps themselves was because they didn't know how to run a writer's room (because they had no experience!) HBO begged them to hire more people

  • They never did a break down of the books, just sort of figured stuff out as they wrote it

  • Full, infuriating tweeted summary at the source

Louis Tomlinson is still mad at Zayn Malik



On whether he could ever forgive his former One Direction bandmate Zayn after leaving the band: “I just don’t think I am mature enough, even in my own head, to give that a real answer. At the moment, I am still pretty mad about the whole thing. I don’t think he [Zayn] handled it very well. But never say never. Who knows? He chatted a lot of shit in the early days. I thought One Direction were pretty good.”

Watch Louis flop with his debut solo album, “Walls,” early next year on January 31st.

ONTD, are you still mad at an old co-worker?

Netflix Cuts Fake-Suicide Scene from The Office

Collapse )

During season 6 of The Office, Michael Scott tries to scare children at a Halloween event by pretending to hang himself. After graphically simulating suicide, he tells the children to seek out mental help if they need it. The scene first aired on NBC in 2009, but since then the network has tried to eliminate the scene in reruns and on the DVD. However, NBC did upload a clip of the scene two years ago on YouTube right before Halloween.

Netflix has decided to get rid of this scene as well, so it cannot be viewed.

Ben Affleck Visits Ex Jennifer Garner's House After Relapse: 'He Owned His Mistake,' Source Says




Ben Affleck was seen arriving at Jennifer Garner‘s home on Sunday, one day after TMZ posted a video of him appearing to be under the influence.

Ben had attended the UNICEF Masquerade Ball on Saturday night and TMZ caught him stumbling as he was leaving the event.

“You could tell that it wasn’t an easy thing for him, but Ben owned his mistake,” a source tells People. “He said it happens, that he slipped up but that it won’t happen again. It was a smart move because now the story is basically over.”

A rep for Affleck did not immediately respond to People’s request for comment. Earlier today, a friend of Ben's told People:

“Sobriety is difficult and elusive for everyone struggling with addiction. Ben has acknowledged he’s going to slip up from time to time. It was never as if this was simply behind him.”
