Re: Dealing with being thirty

I was balding too but I think it is more due to stress or whatever...

Also, how do deal with the feeling where you compare yourself to other people? The feeling that you haven't accomplished anything? Or the feeling that it is too lat eto accomplish or try anything because you are old now?

Re: Dealing with being thirty

I also want to ask about the stigma of being thirty, our society praises youth and vitality but thirty is close to middle age and thirty seems almost frowned upon. How do you deal with that stigma? Or is it a thing? Growing old is inevitable as you not be able to certain things when you are younger.

Re: Controversial Anime Opinions

I really don't think One Punch Man is interesting at all, I get the conflict is internal but that still doesn;t stop from being boring. Ditto for ONE's Mob Psycho, it feels like the same premise but with psychic powers.

Re: Dealing with being thirty

Buy a Harley-Davidson. Oh, wait, that's for 50, not 30. I don't recall anything particular for 30; if anything, it would have been that I had finally "levelled up" as an adult. That was still at the time of high tensions between East and West -- the Soviets didn't blink until some time af...

Dealing with being thirty

Can anyone give some life advice on how to deal with being 30 and how to deal with the existential crisis that comes with it? I know I am still technically young but thirty is a big step and by most animu standards, I am practically an "auld phart"by this point. What advice do you have for...

Bebop is okay but I might need to rewatch again. I remember that I was almost always half asleep when I watch it when I was younger.

Re: Controversial Anime Opinions

If you hadn't heard this already, I am really developing a bit of contempt for Dragon Ball Super. It feels like it is using my own nostalgia against me and it is doing so in an ironic manner. It caused me to be strangely existential as I wonder if I ever was fan of the series although that has more ...

Re: [Film] Watchmen

Watchmen is ubfilmable. It's as much a story about the medium of the comic book as the tropes of superhero comics and a major chunk of its significance can't be captured in another form. So there's two ways to adapt it: go avant-garde to capture its spirit or have a director storyboard into a movie...

Re: Controversial Anime Opinions

I agree with you mostly but I am not sure that will ever happen considering that Toei/Toriyama/Toyotaro aren't really trying to portray Goku as a villain. I could be wrong consider how early into the arc that we are in but it would be a good opportunity to explore that aspect of Goku and his action ...

I see. I guess it makes sense as to why Anno is critical of otaku but I also wondered if he has calmed down over the years?

Re: Is Anno really that critical of otaku?

Anno is an otaku himself (check out Insufficient Direction by his wife Moyoco for an illustration of this), albeit one who has struggled with the notion of reconciling the otaku's reputation (as a disconnected recluse, etc.) with his own desire to be, well, better than that. I think most of the sup...

Re: Controversial Anime Opinions

Really? I thought that super Goku was just the same as always. We've just been getting more of a chance to see Goku in his normal life, rather than just fighting (he tends to be more serious when he fights). Then again, I've never really watched the dub, so I don't know how much they changed his ch...

Is Anno really that critical of otaku?

I read a very interesting article on Anno give up on otaku, how 2ch used Anno's own words agianst him and how Anno essentially 'gives up' on otaku . I know many things are said but few are ture and it is especailly true when it comes to Evangelion but does Anno really hate otaku as much as everyone...

Re: Controversial Anime Opinions

I a beginning to develop a sort of contempt for Goku in super where it seems like he is a parody of himself. I know Goku was never a Superman style hero but it seems like his cluelessness has risen to new levels in Super and it makes a lot more foolish than he actually is in the original series. I m...

I don't know if I am much of a GENWUNNER but I do admit that I have a special fondness for the anime series and I kind of want the series intact.

Re: Controversial Anime Opinions

I only know him from Trigger? He seems straightforward to me. Directing series like Kill La Kill. It is just that his shows pour so much information that it makes brain hurt and I need to rewatch in order to 'get' it. Dead Leaves confuses me but I probably don't have a lot of life experience or nee...
