That's the one! Different places have different translations, I should've just posted the Romaji version. They also have an anime of it set to start either winter or spring of next year, can't wait!

From the perspective of a translator, the 'We('ll) Never Learn' form seems more fitting, multi-faceted and peculiar, than just 'we can't study' :)

Want another quick read ? When a Stupid FPS Player Falls to Another World or The Other World Doesn't Stand A Chance Against The Power Of Instant Death First is from 'Switched to Another World' type, the other from 'I got a cheat i can defeat everything with'. Harem/leveling continuing with Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? (plus Sword Oratoria side story) and A Certain Scientific Railgun is sci-fi enough to be edible (when A Certain Magical Index sorta isn't already, which is funny because Railgun was supposed to be the side story of that, I think?).

if u wander why i write this, it's to not forget these titles :) Also Namaikizakari,L.DK and Domestic Girlfriend the last one for the thoughts of what matters in being a writer plus fanservice :) yeah, i know.

A couple more for remembrance (I just encountered them today) : Suki mo Yoi,
Remember (by Benjamin) (the latter is chinese but dayum! it's jarring right in the feelz.)

Bakuman is another one on my List. It's a long one..... :roll:

Kinda quiet over in this neck of the woods anymore(but not as quiet as the Games section).

Just watched Riddle Story of Devil. I really liked it except for one thing. But I still really enjoyed the show overall.

I also recently finished Nagi No Asukara. I thought this show was very well-done in every way. My hat is off to everyone who was a part of making this show.

Just finished Mawaru Penguindrum.It's was just OK to me, but how did Showa and Kanba wind up in the boxes in the first place? Or is this just more symbolism?

Watching Kannazuki no Miko. It's good. And man the music for the opening theme and ending theme... blows me away every time. I love it.

Just caught up to Wind Breaker back to back. Talk about realism in bicycle-themed comics? Well. This un's on more real level than Yowapeda, anyway.
At this rate I'll end up picking up riding a road bike of all things, LOL. Or triathlon... Btw anyone know any good manga about running...?
Stopped reading Hunter Age instead.

The Kaze ga Tsuyoku Fuiteiru(Run With the Wind) Anime(which I dropped) is based on a Manga of the same name. YMMV.

I watched the first couple episodes of Re:Zero. I think I'm going to drop it for now because (so far) it is wayyyy too intense for me. I was looking for something about as intense as Akuma no Riddle, but (so far) Re:Zero is 10 times as intense. I can't even handle it. I generally get very immersed in the shows I watch (and I am rather sensitive), which is why I have had such a strong reaction to this show.

Re:Zero was recommended to me and was referred to as a "must watch", (and I agree that it is very well done so far) so I may come back to it, but for now it's wayyy too much for me.

On another note, I recently finished Kannazuki no Miko. Overall, I enjoyed it. I felt like they tried to fit a bit too much into 12 episodes, and that while the show was good, I felt that the show could have been a lot better if it had 24 (or even more) episodes, because that would have allowed the show to get a lot deeper into the character relationships and plot. Given that they had only 12 episodes and wanted to fit in as much as they did, they did a very good job with what they had to work with - but I feel that this show would have been even better if they had 24 or more episodes. I still enjoyed the show though and it was good. I would recommend it to someone who likes yuri animes with a more serious flavor. That's how it was recommended to me, and I agree.

Spoiler warning:
Kannazuki no Miko spoilerShow
Holy **** the passion in the last 2 episodes. That ended up being wayyyyy deeper and more emotional than I expected. I felt that they beautifully illustrated the kind of passion that 2 people have when they have been lovers in past lives. When any show starts talking about past lives and reincarnation, that is especially meaningful for me because I believe in that stuff. I thought many of the scenes in the last 2 episodes were very powerful and beautiful and very well-done.

Plot-wise, regarding the ending: There was a lot of stuff that was unclear at first, but when I started applying metaphysics to it and applied probable realities (metaphysical stuff) to it, (while the authors probably didn't intend that), the ending made perfect sense to me. The only thing I was unsure of was whether the reason Chikane wanted to make Himeko hate her was because she felt guilty or something (or just had some kind of karmic energetic debt), or if getting Himeko to kill her was a requirement for Orochi to be defeated. It wasn't clear to me whether past-life Chikane killing past-life Himeko was enough to get rid of Orochi, or if current-life Himeko killing current-life Chikane was a part of the requirement.

But other than that, I was able to make everything else make sense when thinking about it in terms of various metaphysical concepts. And, personally, that made the show even more powerful for me.

I thought that the past life stuff and reincarnation stuff was very well-done. And illustrating the passion that two lovers from past lives have... I thought it was very well-done and beautiful. It was very powerful for me.

This show will be very memorable for me because of this.

Re:Zero was really intense the first few episodes, but then lightens up a bit later, though there are plenty of heavy parts later on.

And if you have a thing for angsty teens rom-coms, there is also Anoko no, Toriko (by Yuki Shiraishi).

Wait the author seems like even looks a bit like Yuki Sonoda lol. And it's about actors.
