  1. i'm gonna win and make u all relive my vocaloid phase with me
  2. 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
  3. 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?
  4. plz watch the first yokohama kaidaishi kikou ova it's v good
  5. 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....
  6. not technically a song, but Space Channel 5 makes for solid background noise
  7. Watched Doukyuusei like a month ago, and I think I enjoyed it for the most part, but aside from it being very pleasant visually/aesthetically, I wouldn't say it's anything more than an o-k way to spend an hour. There's both considerably worse and better things out there to watch instead, it's simply satisfactory imo. By 'robo waifus' do you mean robo waifus, or robo waifus? Asking for a friend
  8. I couldn't find what I was originally looking for so this'll have to do
  9. I heard about that! A while ago I saw a rumor floating around that the OVA was a 'test' to see if there was any interest in a full series eventually being animated. When I tried looking into it I couldn't find anything, but considering an additional project was announced, maybe there was some truth to it..? Regardless, it's still exciting news c: And I noticed you were watching LoGH a few weeks ago; did you like it? does it live up to the hype?
  10. You can change it by going to settings > display name
  11. plz watch this it's the stupidest sketch I've ever seen
  12. srry for the double post My favorite yuri manga got a little 5min OVA-like thing 2-ish months ago! It's called Kase-san and Morning Glories and it's on Youtube (there's no voice acting so you can watch it without subs) It's basically just a collage of certain scenes from several different chapters in the manga, so don't expect anything other than shallow fluff with zero context, but it's very nice fluff nonetheless imo And the first commercial episode of Gundam Twilight Axis came out not too long ago and I;m real salty about it. . . . .. . . .. .
  13. Started reading Devilman. I've only read the first volume, so I don't really have an opinion of it yet, but it's hilarious sometimes, even though it's not trying to be. Are there any specific genres you're interested in?
  14. *insert thumbs up emoji here*
  15. After beating P5, I wanted to try out some other SMT games, and I decided to start with the first Raidou Kuzunoha game and SMT IV. RK1's a ps2 game and feels very... clunky, but I'm actually really digging it so far. It's set in 1930s Japan, the music's really unique, and the gameplay is just really interesting. For one, it's not turn based, and your captured demons don't just fight alongside you in combat, you utilize them while doing detective work around town too. And for a game in a spinoff series called Devil Summoner, RK's surprisingly quirky . Some of the demons are just downright adorable too. You capture enemies to have them aid you in battles and the objects you house them in are these almost syringe-like tubes, and when I caught a Mokoi, the little guy exclaimed: "I've been on 6 or 7 diets lately, I should have no problem fitting in there!" Also Raidou's got some impressively lethal sideburns Meanwhile SMT IV was really freaking hard and I died an embarrassing number of times. (I somehow ended up really over leveled towards the end though. Apparently most people beat the game between lvl 75-lvl 80, but I beat the game at lvl 91 whoops) There's multiple endings that are based on the morality alignments, and your actions over the course of the game determine whether you get the lawful, chaotic, or neutral ending (with neutral being the hardest ending to achieve). The three main characters are Jonathan (law), Walter (chaos), and Isabeau (neutral), and while they do have some character traits, they're less so meant to be characters of their own, and more so just supposed to be the human manifestations of their morality alignments so they're kind of boring Despite siding with Walter, I still got the law ending, and to put it bluntly, I did not like the law ending. Neither extreme is particularly great, but I find the mentality that comes with the law ending to be the worse of the two/three since it's kind of hypocritical and very literally holier-than-thou, whereas, as far as I know (I haven't played the chaos route yet), the chaos mentality is just grossly over simplified. (Chaos allows for free will, but is very 'every man for himself/survival of the fittest', whereas Law is peaceful, but very controlled and 'kill those who disagree/don't live up to our standards'. And while I don't for sure know what the Neutral ending entails, it's the ending the sequel, SMT IV: Apocalypse, takes place after, so I'm assuming it's the least terrible of the three) Some things I did like about SMT IV though is that the Tokyo reveal is very cool (even if a bit obvious), some of the relic descriptions are hilarious, the boss battle theme is ridiculously hype, demon negotiations are consistently interesting, and the game's got a good variety of demons (there's over 400 different ones). tl;dr got the law ending, hated it, but it was alright for the most part otherwise
