I believe the default audio is set at the time the master disc is made, and does not check your BD player default language, but I could be wrong
 
Urrrm discs are set by region? It depends on what track is set on the disc first, it doesn't have much to do with your player, that'll just set the language your player's menus uses. You're gonna have to remember to set the Japanese language from the disc menu if you want that

Actually the Blu-ray specification has support for what you want. A BD player can set the preferred audio language and in turn the program on the disc can use these values to pick the right audio stream. In practice, though, most discs ignore these and (forcefully) set the video and audio streams. :rolleyes:

Manga Question

Can you read arcs from Pokemon Adventures by themselves (Example: Leaf Green / Fire Red without reading the first 21 volumes of manga)
 
Can anyone get Crunchyroll videos to play on Firefox? I use the last one that allowed for extensions (56), and I'm having nothing but a black screen and a spinning orange circle, and the odd stray subtitle, except for the ads at the start, which play fine.

I watched JoJo but tried to refresh and got the CR error page saying people are trying to fix it. At least once a month this happens what a joke.
 
Looks like the site is down. I can't get it on Firefox or Chrome.
That it is now, but when I was watching Fruits Basket an hour ago, Firefox was a no-no for me (although the videos did work in a portable version of Firefox I keep on a USB stick. I watched one episode in Chrome, and one episode in Waterfox, just fine. It's just Firefox which is refusing to go past the spinning orange wheel. I even tried it with all my extensions disabled. No luck

It depends on the arc! Usually they’re all fine to read on their own, apart from the original red/blue/yellow and Gold/Silver which were connected. ‘Remake’ arcs tend to bring back the original cast from the original arc (so red comes back for firered), but they can usually still be taken on their own anyway if you prefer. :)

The more recent stories are all standalone as far as I can tell, so you should be good to jump in wherever you like otherwise.

Right, I'm just about to finish Fate/Zero. So what's next? I've read that F/Stay Night and F/SN Unlimited Blade Works (and F/SN movies, although not finished and not on Netflix) are all adaptations of the same VN, but of different routes. UBW has the better score on MAL, so is the first worth it and is there an order at all.
The other shows on Netflix Grand Order, Extra: Last Encore and Apocrypha all seem to be side stories. Are any of them worth it? Especially thinking about anything related to Waver/Lord El-Melloi II.

Apocrypha is an alt universe. Waver appears in it and another character who is in El Meloi.
They are really all alt universes. El meloi anime cant be the same timeline as FSN As bits are contradicting the sequel FHA (yet to be animated) if you ignore the fanservice it is set before FSN about a month before I think.

I mean technically the best option would've been to start UBW before Zero since Zero is a prequel but that's a whole can of worms that'll probably cause a big debate lol.

But yeah I'd recommend UBW next as that's the more canon version. The 2006 adaption is good but tries to adapt parts of UBW and HF into the Fate route iirc. The other series like Grand Order, Apocrypha and Extra all use the same concept but with different characters and settings so they're pretty much irrelevant to the main story.

Cheers guys.

I guess the reason why it was only 10 years and not the traditional 60 (IIRC) between HG wars is revealed at some point?

That should explain it, FSN also explains it but by knowing FZ you know more than you should. (Which is why really FSN Should be seen first but as HF isnt out yet I cant recommended it over F/Z)
