Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

Eureka Seven AO: In short, I don't get why this series is supposed to be this uniquely awful thing, [...] it doesn't commit vein-popping characterization vandalism like Pocket Full of Rainbows did. I agree about Pocket Full of Rainbows - but at least that was obviously just a different story. AO on...

Re: From Your Lips to the Author's Ears: Story Ideas

It was for VUX, whose ideas are questions rather than even suggestions. I'm not saying that suggestions are worthless - they're fine if they have a germ of an idea how the ideas presented might interact as a reason for making the suggestion; but throwing out apparently random connections and asking ...

Re: From Your Lips to the Author's Ears: Story Ideas

Try writing one rather than (barely even) talking about it. I mean, really try - and offer your efforts up for criticism. That might give you the chance to get some idea of what's involved in making such things work. I wouldn't want to suggest ideas to others if I had no idea whether or not they wou...

Re: Best service to watch anime around the world

I guess it's pretty incomplete. It doesn't know that both Crunchyroll and Funimation are available in the UK, for instance.

Re: [GAME] Neon Genesis Evangelion 2: Another Cases

I saw no problem with Zippyshare, nor have I in the past (and my malware checker is very fierce); but I know people upload dodgy files there. I've taken the liberty of putting the file on my own server in case anyone wants a guaranteed clean download (and as the original link has been removed). http...

Re: Introduction, Toxicity of AsuShin and other things

True? None of us has the incontrovertible truth - it's all opinion. You can argue for one opinion or another, but trying to claim that one answer is the only and complete one is not going to cut any ice. Thing is, we all interpret the world (real life and fiction alike) in the light of our own exper...

Re: Controversial Anime Opinions

Yea, I get that - I thought I'd made that clear enough. In fact I'm not as sensitive to poor lip sync as my wife (being deaf is an issue there, actually); but when it's as bad as in the last couple of (Japanese) episodes of Black Clover ( don't judge me !), things are really going to pot. How often ...

Re: How do i get a picture onto my profile?

To edit your profile go to the main top menu item which is your name and select User Control Panel ( not Profile); then on the Profile tab select Avatar and upload an image. It will be displayed as 125x125 px, and there's a size limit which I can't remember - maybe 30kB or somesuch, but don't quote ...

Re: Controversial Anime Opinions

Aside from whether the delivery is natural (which I guess is harder to judge in a language one doesn't know), the sync with the image can vary. In some productions, the sync is at least as bad in Japanese as one expects it to be in English...

I fear this is a consequence of being part of the "share everything" generation, and being uncritical in your choice of friends. Sometimes taking care to keep a little privacy can help avoid such situations.

Re: Dealing with being thirty

Once I figure out what it feels like, I will share it others. As far as I can tell, feeling like an adult is little more than simply feeling like a kid less often. Maybe some people stop feeling like a kid altogether at some point in their life, but I can't claim to have quite reached that position...

Re: Dealing with being thirty

Actually it's not a big step at all; on your 30th birthday you were but one day older than the day before. So it is no more reason in itself for a crisis than becoming 18, or 21, or 25, 30, or 40, or 50 - all of which get quoted as excuses for a crisis. So you need to ignore age and simply look at y...
