Could be people trying to find/create inconsistencies so they can claim the event didn't actually happen. Some folks see false-flag operations in anything.
People worried about that kind of thing have a lot of totally legitimate concerns regarding fire safety standards to bring up. The fact that Japan generally doesn't have fire escapes, for one thing, and the fact that the roof door, which could have saved lives, was locked. The huge focus on wood, structural elements of which could have been impregnated with flame retardant relatively cheaply at the time of construction (but wasn't) also crops up.

Although from what I've seen, conspiracy theorists are mostly fixating on the fact that the main doors were open because the NHK were planning to come over, which isn't supposed to be SOP for a press visit anywhere, and now the NHK has a big story which naturally they were first on the scene for. But that's consistent with KyoAni being in a nice area and having no real fear of anything like this happening and just generally being careless.

People just aren't comfortable with the idea that one lunatic acting alone can wreak this kind of havoc. But even if I don't think it was the main fault in this case, hopefully this is a wake up call for fire safety standards in Japan in general, since it has long been notorious among developed nations for having poor building codes.

I had to try it as well.  On the one hand, it's conceptually interesting, and on the other hand, it's always amusing to see what monstrosities these random character generators put out.

The random waifu tech has been around for a while (https://www.thiswaifudoesnotexist.net/), what's new is the procedural steps where you pick from grid. And, I think, ending up on a page that will sell you a pillow of your procedural waifu for $90.

You can't, because the site doesn't retain an image, the image only exists in your browser and the data to represent it exceeds 40000 characters (maximum allowed length for a forum post here) so you can't embed it or link it without it being saved as an image somewhere.

Pretty neat, I messed with it a while.  I feel like their tends to be a "wonky" option in the color palette stage, but it sometimes transitions into surprisingly good results.  I also appreciate how it has some Korean-esque art along with the typical Japanese tropes.

Saved for the record, obviously wrong in various ways, but oddly comfortable.

The tech isn't much ahead of TWDNE, unless I'm remembering it as being based off the wrong paper (I happen to work with something very similar, except for neural imaging not waifus). Someone recently-ish put out a paper with more direct conditioning on waifu characteristics. This site is a bit of a cop out, because I'd stake money you never get shown a waifu with glasses (or drills). :P

I'm not bothering, I'm only allowed to have a waifu if she has more than 6 legs or is a really cute mantid.

The internet fulfills its true purpose at last, we have AI generated custom waifus
I'd like to give this a try, but oh holy fuck it does not play nice with my browser. Just loading the page shoots my computer's RAM usage all the way up to the upper 90s, and if I try to generate a new list of potential waifus the browser turns to sludge until I force-close it.

I have yet to make it past step 1.

I feel like this is the real breakthrough.

Apparently Zombie Land Saga is getting a second season.

I might actually watch, despite disliking idol shows on a general basis. ZLS was actually pretty good for what it was, and had a lot of good humor in it. Producer himself was a friggin' hoot who could have carried the entire show on his back alone, but between the based biker zombie girl and the couple of legitimately surprising twists, he didn't have to.

Which is quite a lot of effort for a genre normally reserved for "We dunno what else to make this season but we need to fill a time slot, get some monkeys on typewriters and the first three coherent words they make are the 'twists' we'll go with."

Waifu labs keeps crashing Firefox for me too, as in all Firefox windows instantly crash and close without warning. I gave up, never did get a finished Waifu, and only got to the decorating stage one time, it usually crashes the browser before that.
