  1. I'm making Akazora trudge through Maison Ikkoku with me :''^)c we're on ep like 38 and it's just ok
  2. did anyone ever guess your name from that riddle in your 'about me' btw

    1. Akazora

      Akazora

      I think Kenzi might've solved it years ago but tbh I don't really remember lol

  3. Been watching Parks and Rec a lot lately because it'll be leaving Netflix like October 1st iirc and for the longest time it was my go-to background noise show. I wanted to legitimately watch it a bit before it left but... I'm not sure if I genuinely like the show all that much c':
  4. Think the last one I watched was Weathering With You back in February with Akazora :') ..neither of us particularly liked it and we drove through a snowstorm in an unfamiliar area to go see it 4/10 wouldn't recommend, but if you go in without any expectations you might enjoy it idk
  5. My last post here was a half decade ago; I'll come back in 5yrs but I've been trying to gain some artistic skill lately so I hope 10yrs from now I'll have stuck with it and have some semblance of a competent artist
  6. i'm gonna win and make u all relive my vocaloid phase with me
  7. I've been meaning to read for this a few years to be honest! I've seen several people in recent months rave about it though so I might have to bump it up on my to-read list. Is the book as much of a tearjerker as I've heard it is? ---- I wouldn't say it's necessarily "good", but I picked up a really pristine copy of Podkayne of Mars by Heinlein from a secondhand bookstore not too long ago and I've been enjoying it for what it is haha It's a great read if you just wanna turn your brain off for a short while. I also just started Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller the other night, and while I'm not far enough along to really have any thoughts on it yet, I've been enjoying it thus far
  8. I deliberately never posted here because I was always too nervous to want to admit I wanted to meet someone from here, but funnily enough that didn't stop me from eventually meeting Akazora haha Out of curiosity, have any other users here since met other users?
  9. Seems I missed the wave of people coming back to visit at the start of the summer--whoops??? Anyway, it's nice to be back; I'm glad to see there was some activity here a few months ago though I wish I'd checked back here earlier and not just missed everyone c^': c: How's everyone been? 2020's been a biiit of a hot mess but it's not been without its positives; like last year @Akazora and I met, we've been dating for over a year now , and with everything going on this year, it's just been really nice to have him through all this Not to sound too saccharine, but I never would've imagined this little forum would've had such an impact on me! As cringey as it is to look back on, I had such a fun time interacting with everyone here and I'm glad I'm not the only one who remembers the time we concurrently spent here fondly EDIT: after poking around so bit everyone's so grown up??? and I'm so happy to see that so many old users have popped in relatively recently ;o; !! I hope everyone's doing well c: ------- OMM: anyone here wanna exchange switch friend codes? Splatoon 2 and AC:NH have been my main time sinks as of late c:
  10. plz watch the first yokohama kaidaishi kikou ova it's v good
  11. whoa!!! The bots are gone! And it's not as dead here as I assumed it would be what a nice surprise
  12. ty! My username's 'robotical' on discord actually. Depending on how much overlap there is between here and the servers, I might change my nickname to 'machine' on there though
  13. Thanks! edit: the first link expired I joined the 2nd one though
  14. Weird.. I wonder where it exactly came from then I'd be up for joining it though, Do you have an invite link or remember where you found a link to the server?
  15. Started this early 80s mecha series called Aura Battler Dunbine. It's this really weird sci-fi/medieval fantasy mix that's unique and kinda interesting, but just very.... odd overall. (There's electricity, bio-mechs, and fairies all in one setting and it's a bit much...) I heard about when it looking for series similar to Zeta Gundam (Dunbine's also a Sunrise series that Tomino worked on) and was immediately convinced to watch it when I saw that the mechs are heavily inspired by insects. I'm only 5-ish ep's into it, so I don't have much of an opinion yet, but if nothing else, this is a memorable series for its setting alone. Also started the original Macross anime and I'm almost 10 ep's in currently. (this screencap of all things was what made me to give it a go) It hasn't explained very much yet, but despite that it manages to be enjoyable so I guess that's fine...? One really interesting though is the tone the anime has. Something serious will happen, but 2mins later characters will be cracking jokes and that shift somehow manages to not be horribly jarring. I'm not yet at the part where music gets thrown into the mix, but hopefully that'll make it only better I don't like the music/idol genre all that much tho so im kinda nervous about it tbh. . .. . . "...will premiere in early summer 2018" so far away rip Hopefully the Kase-san OVA will be worth the wait though! ------------ It's good to hear that you liked it! Were there any things you disliked about LOGH though? What was your favorite part? (If it's too spoilery to say, who was your favorite character?) And IIRC there's a few other LOGH OVA's and movies in the franchise; have you seen any of those yet? It sounds like an interesting combination of things that are uncommon in most anime. (Classical music please tell me they don't use any music from The Nutcracker, steeped in political themes, and presumably very dialogue-heavy and moves at a slower than average pace) Though you said it's the best portrayal of politics in anime that you've seen, have you watched anything that portrays political conflict in a similar fashion? On MAL a lot of people apparently feel it's similar to Code Geass, but based mostly on appearances, I have a bit of a hard time believing that, but maybe they're more alike than they initially seem...? And slightly off topic but: just how gruesome was it overall? Assuming the post I saw was tagged correctly, a few months ago I saw a rather gorey gif from LOGH and it piqued my curiosity quite a bit since all the well-known promotional material for the series never gave off the impression it would have content like that. Similarly, do any major characters die the middle of the show? Also ty for breaking it down into arcs! I was considering watching LOGH back in July or August or so, but the long episode count felt overwhelming at the time, so I decided to hold off for the time being. Seeing it divided into story arcs does make it considerably less daunting though. Is one arc noticeably better or worse than the others btw? In other longer series I've watched, there's almost always an arc (or just a handful of episodes) that are generally agreed upon to be slogs to sit through, but considering LOGH's reputation, I'm wondering if it somehow manages to avoid that problem. And to digress slightly, just how much of the show takes place outside of battles and strategy meetings? Perhaps worded better, is any time spent on almost slice of life-like situations? In sci-fi series, scenes that show the characters out of combat and just socializing with each other are really interesting to watch imo, so I'm curious to know if they made time for anything like that. I remembering hearing about a remake a long time ago, but I had no idea its air date was coming up so soon. (it's gonna be a tv series and not an OVA right...?) It's interesting they're only going to be adapting the first arc instead of remaking the whole tv series at once though. That way of dividing the content up into both episodes and movies is a bit weird too, but maybe it just sounds awkward on paper and will actually work out well..? And assuming you're correct about them waiting to see how the first remake's received before remaking the rest of the series, I wonder what would happened if the first arc flopped... And you probably don't care buutttt: The reason the character designs for the Gundam The Origin OVA look so cohesive with the original character designs is because the mangaka of the Gundam The Origin manga is the same guy who did the character designs for the original Mobile Suit Gundam anime. The Origin's also not a remake, but rather a retelling of the original Gundam with some new material added in, which is what the OVA's focusing on, so it's not most equal comparison --But yeah the character designs for the remake were much more generic than what I was expecting... The original designs had a lot of character imo so it's kinda disappointing the new ones don't seem to have any....
  16. I wasn't aware there was one. Did it originate on the DCTP forums or something similar?
