Re: What are you Watching/Reading Q3 2019

I recently finished Yamato 2202. After of course my second go at 2199 and also checked out the movie. Which I thought would bridge the two seasons together, but was really just an additional story taking place close to the end of 2199. Though it did introduce the Gatlanteans(though albeit inaccurate...

Planescape Torment: Enhanced Edition

So I started playing this. It's my second attempt I suppose, but I never finished it that one time I tried quite some years ago. I don't really remember shit, and I kinda got lost, stuck and sidetracked and never finished it. After searching for some internet advice, my starting build had 18 WIS, 16...

Re: Idolmaster

I think there's a major issue with Cinderella Girls crossing over with the rest of im@s. But this is just my speculation and analysis. The thing about Cinderella Girls is that it is co-developed by Bandai Namco AND Cygames. And I hear Cygames does most of the heavy lifting really and Bamco is mostly...

Re: What are you Watching/Reading Q3 2019

Rewatched Soukyuu no Fafner. I was hankering for some mecha and absolutely did not remember what it was about, so I revisited it so I could watch the Heaven and Earth Movie and Exodus as well. Now that I'm done with it all, I feel horrible just from how much of a trauma conga line the entire show is...

Re: What are you Watching/Reading Q3 2019

Fire Force is looking quite nice. Lord El-Melloi will either be good or really pretentiously cringey. I think I will enjoy Cop Craft. Sounan desu ka is kinda amusing but the character designs are so reminiscent of some hentai I've watched before... Symphogear XV is the only reason I haven't flung my...

Re: What are you Watching/Reading Q2 2019

Spy X Family is probably like my favourite manga now. And you can read it for free, legally on Shueisha's Manga Plus website. I dropped Fairy Gone at some point, decided to binge the rest of it and my life was not at all enriched by the experience. I also dropped Bocchi at some point. Maybe I'll wat...

Re: Anime Toys 2019

Prize figures tend to be el cheapo, but their price is proportional to their quality. They typically don't compare to proper stuff and might as well be molten wax in the face of high end brands like Alter. There is a nice variety though, I actually like the concept of a number of them, like the Taka...

OPM was never really my thing but I noticed a lot of discussion on how the next season would be poo after it was revealed that JC Staff would be doing it instead of Madhouse. I did some backlogging. Watched Comic Girls. Well, it's very Manga Time Kirara. Really cute, but not really much substance. S...

Re: Thoughts of 2018?

I find it so hard to think of a year as a year. Since I mostly think of seasons and barely remember seasons beyond the previous one. I thought S;G0 was utter arse though and wish I never gave it the time of day. Yuru Camp was definitely the bee's knees. Didn't actually like DarliFranxx that much but...

Re: Whatcha watchin' / readin' Q1 2019

Kakegurui XX - More funny faces. Asuka - I kinda like the premise but it feels so early 2000s low budget pulp. Endro - I started it because of an amusing photoshop which redid some of the lines to be about MtG. But the show itself is a bit nyeh. Kouya no Kotobuki Hikoutai - I kinda like the premise ...

Irozuku Sekai no Ashita kara - Yeah well, it's pretty but kinda lacking any hook at the moment. Just gonna roll with it with expectations in check.

JoJo Golden Wind - Well it's more JoJo and I shall gladly partake.

Thunderbolt Fantasy S2 - This is all I need to call this season good.

Re: What are you Watching/Reading Q3 2018

My experience with josei stuff is that they do enjoy their more 'forbidden/taboo' relationships. Though Usagi Drop went out its way to do this convoluted explanation on how they ultimately weren't blood related. Which makes Daikichi's grandpa even more of an oddball. I wouldn't have minded nearly as...

Monster Hunter World

Anybody in on this? I was never into the MH franchise due to just not owning the relevant platforms. The little I played on a friend's PSP kinda turned me off a bit due to the single stick and lack of buttons resulting in awkward controls. But I have played God Eater Resurrection/2 Rageburst and Tou...

Haven't been able to keep up with some shows. I've kinda just completely lost interest in Planet With and Banana Fish after 2 episodes. Can't even muster the effort to leave Free! on. I think all I'm watching is Chio, Asobi, Hataraku Saibou and Yama. Well I am watching S;G0 but I kinda forget that I...

Re: Anime vs Drama

I'm overall not that big on Japanese acting, it just seems exaggerated and kinda fake. But then my experience with that is mostly tokusatsu. The only J-dramas I've watched are Bartender and Densha Otoko. I've watched a few random movies on planes and stuff that I largely I don't remember. So I might...

To be clear, I more meant NEW series claiming 'Flagship' status. I think a lot of the 'Classic' series keep that status in the fandom, though probably more with older demographics, but for sure people can still go 'Oh guys... EVANGELION. :O'. But I feel like there's no space for NEW series to be ve...

I got into anime from TV broadcasts. Being in Malaysia, we didn't have many options and as a kid, buying stuff online was definitely not accessible. So dodgy bootleg VCDs or DVDs and when internet got better - fansubs alongside any TV broadcasts was the way to get into the hobby. I try not to let ot...
