--------------

“Mine has been a life of much shame. I can't even guess myself what it must be to live the life of a human being.”
- Osamu Dazai, No Longer Human

“Whenever I was asked what I wanted my first impulse was to answer "Nothing." The thought went through my mind that it didn't make any difference, that nothing was going to make me happy.”
- Osamu Dazai, No Longer Human


...There are no words for how bad DtB S2 is. NOT A CANNON!

“I have always shook with fright before human beings. Unable as I was to feel the least particle of confidence in my ability to speak and act like a human being, I kept my solitary agonies locked in my breast. I kept my melancholy and my agitation hidden, careful lest any trace should be left exposed. I feigned an innocent optimism; I gradually perfected myself in the role of the farcical eccentric.”
- Osamu Dazai, No Longer Human

“As long as I can make them laugh, it doesn’t matter how, I’ll be alright. If I succeed in that, the human beings probably won’t mind it too much if I remain outside their lives. The one thing I must avoid is becoming offensive in their eyes: I shall be nothing, the wind, the sky.”
- Osamu Dazai, No Longer Human




“All I feel are the assaults of apprehension and terror at the thought that I am the only one who is entirely unlike the rest. It is almost impossible for me to converse with other people. What should I talk about, how should I say it? - I don't know.”
- Osamu Dazai, No Longer Human

"I was afraid to board a streetcar because of the conductor; I was afraid to enter the Kabuki Theater for fear of the usherettes standing along the sides of the red-carpeted staircase at the main entrance; I was afraid to go into a restaurant because I was intimidated by the waiters furtively hovering behind me waiting for my plate to be emptied.”
- Osamu Dazai, No Longer Human

"What frightened me was the logic of the world; in it lay the foretaste of something incalculably powerful. Its mechanism was incomprehensible, and I could not possibly remain closeted in that windowless, bone-chilling room. Though outside lay the sea of irrationality, it was far more agreeable to swim in its waters until presently I drowned."
- Osamu Dazai, No Longer Human

Reviews:


“People talk of “social outcasts.” The words apparently denote the miserable losers of the world, the vicious ones, but I feel as though I have been a “social outcast” from the moment I was born. If ever I meet someone society has designated as an outcast, I invariably feel affection for him.”
- Osamu Dazai, No Longer Human

“For someone like myself in whom the ability to trust others is so cracked and broken that I am wretchedly timid and am forever trying to read the expression on people's faces.”
- Osamu Dazai, No Longer Human

“Even now it comes as a shock if by chance I notice in the street a face resembling someone I know however slightly, and I am at once seized by a shivering violent enough to make me dizzy.”
- Osamu Dazai, No Longer Human

Blogs:


"The small upper window in my room was open, and through it I could see into the room. The light was on, and two animals were there. In a daze I told myself as I gasped for breath that this too was human, that I shouldn't be surprised, this was an aspect of human beings, forgetting to save Yoshino and just standing there on the stairs."
Yozo Oba, No Longer Human

“Is it not true that no two human beings understand anything whatsoever about each other, that those who consider themselves bosom friends may be utterly mistaken about their fellow and, failing to realize this sad truth throughout a lifetime, weep when they read in the newspapers about his death?”
- Osamu Dazai, No Longer Human

That one for 3 has real nice animation, doesn't look dated at all.
Unfortunately visuals are all i can judge cause none of this makes sense to me yet.

reminds me of the BoF4 intro and how much i liked it as a kid.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9aHYiO46Enc


Didn't even watch Michiko to Hatchin yet, no fucks given.
It was recommended to me based on my comments in my SnM review about how i'd like more older female MCs and MtH seems to fit the bill. Chick looks hawt.

Unfortunately, my backwards compatible PS3 got busted, and Sony is replacing it for me with a new model, so unless it comes on PSN, I'm stuck with this.

Jamieson Price is amazing. One of my favorite dub VAs.

SNaG21 | Jun 22, 8:24 PM
That .hack//G.U. cast is pretty fucking great. It has so much talent, just looking at the BTVA.

“I do believe I said something about the purity of my mind. Something about your fingers, also.” Whoa, I completely forgot. Damn, I am so easy on people these days.

Haha, I work on my praising skills so, yeah, I think I am not against joining a friends list as a flattery kind of haremette.

“I was much too lazy to get into the source material - only Monte Cristo could make me read 1000pages”. Oh, cmon, it’s about 600 pages in the original and only 450 in English, and looking at your Fujoshi Rumi review you’re not a stranger to monumental writing yourself. >< But yeah, I don’t think I would’ve picked it up now too.

Btw, is it worth to read No Longer Human? I like stories about insane people, but I am not sure I am interested, if it only goes downhill for the protag.

As for Tsumi to Batsu (I am going to get slightly monumental too):

I’d say that it is a rather good adaptation, considering it is an actual adaptation with most important details present, not an axe-wielding slasher or a novel-inspired porn that I half-expected. Though it is slow and less structured than its source material, so it must be easier to read, if you’re familiar with Crime and Punishment. Oh, and about porn - it helps if you know what the gang-rape scenarios replace, cause they are very out of place.

I had a lot of fun finding familiar motives. Like, for example, it got to me who Risa is only in the moment of her death. She was Elisaveta, short form – Lisa, in Japanese > Risa, pretty logical. And I thought she was supposed to be Sonya– the role given to Echika. Or, for example, the flowers that Sudo dumped on the box with the decomposing prostitute – those were the flowers from original Svidrigailov’s dream about a 14-year old girl that committed suicide after he raped her.

Of course, in the end the story breaks apart, which I expected, since a Japanese author won’t use the Christianity as the way of salvation and it would be very hard to replace it. There are other concessions to the new time and location too. The story lacks the sense of place, so characteristic of the original work, which is kind of Silent Hill-like (if you played the game) – in the sense that everybody has his own brand of hell. I also lament the lack of concept of eternity in form of a small room full of spiders. And there’s no historical context, since original Raskolnokov picked his ideas from streets – his time was the time of Nietzsche, and we all know where it led. These things probably couldn’t be helped.

On the other hand, there’re problems, which could’ve been avoided, like the unrealistic romance (the idea of destructive love was not pedaled in the original, so the author got cornered under his own initiative), Miroku’s inability to go on living not being apparent enough (also strange, since manga is a good medium for showing madness) and overactive Sudo-Svidrigailov. Sudo is a good character, the problem is that he is still too full of life and it’s not evident why Miroku shouldn’t go with him to travel and fuck exotic bitches. It wasn’t an option in the novel (though Svidrigailov offered to send Raskolnikov to the US), cause Svidrigailov was fickle, way too rotten and somewhat insane – he saw his dead wife regularly. Not to mention that he had half-mind to violate Raskolnikov’s sister. And it's not that they could simply fly there. But here Sudo starts to act as the stereotypical tempting villain – hello, Mikishima and dozens of clones and predecessors. And we don't get a proper explanation of why Miroku doesn't choose his easy way.

The most ironic thing is the author of manga is in the same situation as Miroku. Dostoyevski knew much more about live and madness – he was epileptic (apparently debatable, but I was taught that he was) and addicted to gambling, was almost hanged and then sent to Siberia – and I doubt that Naoyuki Ochiai had experiences close to this stuff.

Oh, and the Makarov pistol is a nice little easter egg.

All in all it was an enjoyable manga, but for me the brilliance of the original work was heavily imposed on it, so I may be too forgiving. But mangaka is undoubtedly talented, and it’s a pity this is relatively unknown.

Malfegor | Jun 9, 6:13 AM
A few years? Well, we still have plenty of time left then.
Fuck you man, i like your posts and you can't convince me otherwise. We'll see who gets on the other ones nerves first.
I sit here with bated breath waiting for your responses and every time one pops up i giggle like a little girl. Internally only, of course. On the outside i'm wearing my Kenshiro styled stone-face (me rite now: https://41.media.tumblr.com/31b8ab8746927957760c96ea167c635a/tumblr_mmabnevf0E1r0cipdo1_500.jpg)
Here, i am replying within a day just to spite you.

Seriously, are gonna go full-on gay already OR WHAT?

I'm just realizing that this post is visible to anyone and people reading this might think i'm insane.
Hey you, unrelated person reading this, i'm cool. I swear. Hit me up. (~.^)

So anyway, to finalize the SAO thoughts.

lol motherducker. THE FUCK was that duck about?

Agreed, Munsu = Guts, Aji Tae =/= Griffith.
Feel like Griffith is handled a bit better. He still seems to genuinely care about being a competent leader to humanity, it's just that his methods are highly questionable.
Also, the extent of his god-powers are not clear to me. He still seems to let his armies do most of the work. I somehow didn't realize that Aji Tae's powers were tied to looking at the person he wants to kill. Didn't seem to bother him when he destroyed Jushin lel
Also, unrelated, but have you SEEN Rickert slapping Griffiths shit?

I'm pretty sure these are the exact pages from the manga, because that's how i remember them.
And here is me steering another conversation towards Berserk. Fuck. Is it clear yet that i really like Berserk?

Moving on.
I'm not sure what the purpose of the "Is Chun really a human?"-thing was. As far as i'm concerned she's just a gurl. Everyone threats her as such. Even the randos she saves in the epilogue do.

You really like Kye, that much is clear. A romantic at heart.
Too bad i lack appreciation for romance in most cases. I dunno.

Hwalbidang arc could be completely removed and the series would lose nothing. Her twin sister is never even brought up again before or after that arc.
The only reason i wasn't too bothered by it was cause of the art.

About the movie: Really feel the biggest weakness is that Munsu has no one to play off off (? help my english out here). Both of the villains are one-and-done and Chun has literally three lines in the entire movie (i counted). Really makes you appreciate all the characters in the manga that he has history with.
Chun's fight had some pretty cool music tho.
Summoning the phantom army was badass.
You mention this before i think, but the coloring of the sky in the desert was fucking weird. Why go with yellow? Blue would have created a much nicer contrast.
Anyway, reasonably alright manga trailer, but that's about it.
And please feel free to elaborate on the plot holes in Mandrake arc.

Yeh, i read the gaiden chapters. I think one chapter was missing tho. Last one with Munsu/Kye/king was alright, rest i forgot already.

Amulet smith could also upgrade amulets. I'm not trying to apply any logic to the magic anymore, but i'd like to know when the Angyo Onshi come into play, considering the series is named after them. Plus it's not just Munsu who could summon ghosts, Miss bigtits could as well. Dunno.

Won Sul spent a couple panels as head, then turned into a Kaiju, then released from his suffering by Munsu. Served just to make Munsu even angrier at Aji Tae, i think.

Archaeon is alright, haven't read too much of his stuff. A bit dry for my taste maybe, but deffo good. I like some humor sprinkled on my reviews, cause i'm duuumb. His Evangelion review however is the only one where he really shit the bed. From what i remember it boiled down to ''this is overrated, 5/10''. I dunno, i adhere to the philosophy that "overrated" is never a valid criticism of anything. I rate everything on it's quality, not the popularity.
Plus he got some facts wrong there. Like asking why they let Shinji pilot the robut, when Eva is one of the only series i can think of that gives in-universe explanations as to why they need those specific teenage pilots.
Whatever, i'm just rambling here.

And are you always tsundere for your favorite series? ^^

Your instincts about Terraformars were right. I felt like i was losing my mind when they introduced the german guy named Adolf.
Yep, german superhuman Adolf eradicating an army of insects that look suspiciously like black people.
Someone needs to take the creative team of Terraformars aside and give them a good slap in the face.

Twelve Kingdoms, eh? That's one classy as fuck intro.
It's a bit over my current '26 episodes series max'-limit, but i shall keep it in mind. Plus i don't wanna watch three girl-power fantasy series in a row.
lack of squirrel is worrisome, but i'll make it. It has a 9/10 review on nihon-review, those guys wouldn't lie to me, right?

Yuss, good scene. I feel like it's becoming a bit popular to hate on QT recently, but i still love the guy. He makes my favorite movies. Yes, even Death Proof i like.
The 'tipping scene' is another obvious classic. Whats with americans and their weird tipping?

Wait, you feel like Miura is becoming a lesser man for toning down the rape? Am i getting that right? haha, that's a first.
The troll cave is scary because of its implications, not what is shown. Those women were in there for days, maybe weeks. In complete 'can't see shit, captain'-darkness. getting fuc'd by weird thorny troll dick day-in, day-out.

I'm still waiting for the current season of GoT to finish so i can binge it. I've also read the books, wonder how they will handle the story now that some story-lines are caught up to the books.

I've failed you. ;_;
Like i said, i would love to change my psn-name, but i'm not allowed to. Kill me.
And i certainly ain't makin a new account, i'd lose the fucking trophies.
BTW
this is Malfegor:
http://hqwallbase.com/images/big/wp-malfegor-1280x960-wallpaper.jpg
pretty edgy, rite?
He's my spirit animal. Whatever the fuck that means.

I haven't read Wolfsmund, cause i don't get a lot of manga/anime done on weekends. I spent my weekends doing either one of these two things:
-playing unhealthy amounts of video games (as you witnessed)
-getting disgustingly drunk
I lead an incredibly healthy lifestyle.
About those missing pages/bad scans: FUCK
the fuck am i supposed to do now?
I could order physical copies of amazon, but i don't feel like waiting several days or maybe even weeks to keep reading. Guess i'm just gonna keep going with the scans and hope i don't get fucked over too hard.

And since you really like to torture me with DSP, i'm gonna do you the favor and watch a bit of that ...
Watched the first ten minutes, then kept skipping through the video. This is literally nothing but him complaining about the dodge every single fucking times he gets hit. for 35 minutes. I know a lot of people watch him ironically just to make fun of him, but there is a fanbase out there that genuinely likes his stuff. HOW? HOOOOOW?
There is no witty commentary or jokes in there, it's just a manbabby crying over nothing for long periods. How could anyone enjoy this?

KeyboardKafe | Jun 8, 6:36 PM
I try occasionally but I don't ever get anything else on that list, heh. Always gotta try though!

Yeah, I write a LOT with my reviews. My reviews get smacked regularly, I'm also not sure how, as I'm usually pretty positive. My first five reviews are all within the 10-8 ratings, and my HxH review regularly gets downvoted, so much so that it's almost split completely in half now. Thanks though; I put a lot of effort into scoring and reviewing, its my favorite hobby. I have several reviews I keep in the "shed" if you will, under wraps. My favorite anime (FMAB) is getting a review from me soon, and its honestly my best too. I don't expect a good "helpful" ratio from it though, because who the fuck wants to read another 10/10 fmab review amirite?

It definitely looks like my kinda thing; after Kuuchuu Buranko, (which I fell in love with,) I've wanted to watch more artsy fartsy; Gankutsuou, Tatami Galaxy, Mononoke... plus more. We'll wait and see, when I'm done with what I'm watching now I'll probably dive right into artfart.

Your review is very well spoken! I didn't actually know it took place in the future; AND had robots. I liked it though, it convinced me even further to watch the anime.

Malfegor | Jun 5, 12:09 PM
Okay, final thoughts on SAO post, here we go mofo.

So, i've read your wall-of-text post (i love you, man) you linked me and once again find myself agreeing so often that i'm starting to wonder if i even have an original thought left in my head.
Anyway, here are some of my thoughts (probably gonna forget a bunch of stuff, you know how it goes)

Aji Tae: biggest disappointment for me in the series, i think. When AT first shows up in the manga, his personality is actually fairly chill and made me go 'doesn't actually seem like that bad of a guy, what's the problem?' which in turn led me to expect a more grayscale villain, but as already mentioned, by the time we get to the end he devolves into cackling rapist/mass murderer/blah and is basically unredeemable aka same thing we see everywhere. The entire 'leaving Munsu alive for no good reason' is dumb as hell and stems mostly from the fact that the writer wrote himself into a corner. Started with the concept of 'what if the villain of our series is basically omnipotent? he can read minds and completely eradicate individuals/armies/cities with a word.' Sounds like a cool set up, but the reason why no else does it, is because it's almost impossible to pull off. So we get AT being dumb and leaving Munsu alive for whatever reason. like five times.
Anyway, Munsu basically startling a god to death is badass as fuck, but the thought that it's only possible because ATs brain doesn't work gud still lingers in my mind and that takes a bit of the satisfaction out the win.

Chun: I'd be surprised if this girl even had a hundred lines throughout the entire story. Even by the end of the story she has so little personality beyond 'being super-dedicated to Munsu' that she may as well have been a Dragonslayer type of weapon/object. I think i've had an easier time than you buying her heel turn, because i just assumed it was AT brainwashing magic or whatevs.

BTW forgot to mention this earlier when you talked about it, but i'll tell you whats wrong with the female designs in this series: no hips, no ass! I can't masturbate like this! Good boobs tho.

Hwalbidang arc (?): Realizing that this entire arc was essentially completely useless was a pain. It really only existed to throw a bunch of DBZ battles at us, right? I mean the only guy that survived (Jin from Samurai champloo proxy) really didn't do much in the end either way.

Final battle: whaaa ... seriously who are all these people and why should i care that most of them are dying? Munsu ancestor, what? Strongest guy in the world showing up randomly to battle Munsu's ancestor, what? Who are most of Aji Tae's servants? Scorpion lady or some shit, what? Why is Kaidaten a scared superpowered loli now, what? What's with all this DBZ shit going on, just show me whats happening between Munsu/Aji Tae ffs.
Dice commanding was a cool idea tho.

Also, have to wonder how much your thoughts changed since you wrote that post? It's been five years.
You seemed to be giving Munsus personality a lot of shit, for the exact reasons you sold him to me later on lel

As with a lot of other stuff, i also agree with the rating for the manga. It's getting an 8/10 because whatevs, but i really feel like it would probably deserve an 7. I guess 7.5 might be perfect. I'm keeping the right to change the rating with my mood swings as i constantly do for everything on my list.

Ugh, i hope that's all.

Malfegor | May 31, 3:46 PM
I'm not gonna go into that thread for now, for fear of spoilers, but i shall keep it in mind. You don't have to tell me about simple dumb reasons for liking something, i'm the king of that. My entire reasoning behind liking Parasyte was basically "reminds me of 'the Thing', 8/10".

Yeah, until Aji Tae finally explained that he ate the king the day Munsu left, i was right there with Munsu in terms of confusion and actually started wondering whetever or not the King ever existed in the first place. So good on them for achieving the desired effect, i guess? There was also that third guy, the inquisitor or whatever, that was kinda part of the confusion as well.
I suppose your fire superpower analogy made the entire thing make a bit more sense in my head. Then there is Kye being killed twice, which was confusing as well. I suppose there no point in thinking to hard about the 'science behind the magic' for this series, i'm just kinda going with the flow at this point.

I thought it was mentioned somewhere that the king also came from a 'lower class' or something? I may be mis-remembering that, maybe it just meant 'lower than king'. Should really give that gaiden series a read then.
Just thought it was cruel how Munsu really didn't want to consider the girls feelings at all, she obviously wanted to be with him. Not like a general/national hero is that bad of a catch ... still, i suppose that's the material tragic love stories are made of.

Hard to take Aji Tae seriously once he basically revealed himself as a cackling mass murderer. I was hoping his motivations would be made clearer with time, instead they seem to get more confusing.

I wouldn't know much about Naruto, but i don't mind granpa having superpowers and being a badass ('badass old man' is literally my favorite anime trope), was just surprised about the summoning thing. Once i thought it over it made kind of sense tho. He can forge the Mahai, maybe that's him channeling part of his summoning power into an object?
Which leads me to another question tho, when exactly did the Angyo Onshi 'unit' even become a thing? Munsu's Mahai was mentioned during Deeply Rooted Tree, but not the creation of the unit itself. Must have been after the fall of Jushin then?

Biggest problem with Bang Ja is that he has a fair amount of dramatic scenes, but they are hard to take seriously when he looks like a human toad. There was literally nothing positive gained from making his character design look like that. The other characters occasionally engage in comic relief as well, but they don't need to look like garbage.

What you typed about Won Sul is too true, unfortunately. His personality does a complete 180 like three times in the series, but only the one where he was introduced doesn't make sense. He was bit too gleefully evil at his introduction. Aji Tae indoctrination, i guess? Eh.

We'll see if i can prove myself against Archaeon, as long as i'm within the top four it's fine anyway. I never really expected to do as well as i did in the first place. Good thing about my Terraformars review is that it's still the highest rated one for the series, despite the meager barely 50% rating lol. Really telling about those fanboy votes. I gave LionCake's review a read now and was highly entertained. Seems like you have a way of inspiring people.
Now that i think about it, my Durarara review is my only low-rated one and i consider it the weakest anyway, so eh. Yeah, give Giganto Makhia a glance, both the manga and my review hehe.

Aww shit, an instrumental opening. You really don't see those often, weirdly enough, considering that for some series they just fit way better than anything with vocals could. I mentioned in my review that i found SnM's modern opening unfitting, something like that AnY one would be way better.
And yes, of course i notice the squirrels. Wish squirrels in real life could tell me to fuck myself.

True, there's not much chemistry between the Bride and her assassins, but at least they all get some backstory and/or a good look at their personalities. This remains one of my favorite scenes in Kill Bill: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l4L9Yi-lXbo
Budd is cool <3
Then again, Kill Bill is only two movies and Berserk is a two decade old manga that's already having trouble wrapping up.
Yeh, i remember that troll rape cave. Everybody does. And that's in a series that's already filled to bursting with rape. I think Guts/Casca is the only instance of consensual sex in the entire thing haha.
And i agree, my legacy ending theory might be a bit generic, but i honestly can't think of a better one. Wrap up Guts story, no need to wrap up the entire world, basically. God Hand merging would be shite or would at least require massive amounts of effort to make work.

No safety net for anyone? I love that shit, it's one of the reasons i adore Game of Thrones. Sold me even harder on that series.

That's not my psn profile, i go by boris1600 on there. My irl name + random numbers, CREATIVITY! Wish i could change it, but Sony won't let me. Weird, pretty sure it's possible on Xbla.

Oh yeah, that chalice dungeon trophy was a bitch, everything else was kinda easy. Took me way longer to get the Demons/Dark Souls ones.
I'd honestly recommend you check out that series, they aren't as bad as everyone says, just a bit old school in their design. They are also basically Berserk games, without the license.
Case in point: http://i.imgur.com/GOZRXDe.png
And i'm currently enjoying Witcher 3 as well, though i definitely ain't getting that plat. That game is ridiculously massive/content loaded. In a good way, of course.
I watched DSP's 'how you don't play MGS2', that's about enough for a lifetime.

I own both Raids already. The second one tried to put in more story and that was kinda eh, but i still loved it. The action scenes remained mind-blowing and that's all i watch those movies for anyway.
'action was still gud, 8/10'

Tbh I thought you'd like all the anime shit in the second movie like Baseball Bat boy and Hammer girl, guess I was wrong. Mad Max Fury Road is the best action movie this year and I haven't even seen the previous movies. I watch old movies but IDGAF about frauding since there's no "real" story.

Hi! Long time no see after the A.Z threads. I was going through Tsumi to Batsu: A Falsified Romance and a line inside the sole review on MAL caught my eye - the series really has this "effortless ease". And then I noticed that you're the author of the review. After your amazing crack review of A.Z I must say that I am really impressed by your contribution to the review section. My respect and many thanks! ^^

And Falsified Romance is fun - a pity so few know about it. It's especially interesting to compare it with the source novel, or at least with vague memories about it - in my case.

Oh, thanks for replying!

Damn, I REALLY wanted to add more. 5 isn't a large enough number to represent all my favorite anime, heh. How have you not been harassed by any moderators for it yet?

Yeah I like his reviews a lot. Especially his Terra Formars one. I'm really active in reviewing myself, as I see you are too. after comparing our anime I see we don't often share the same opinion, but thats fine anyway.

I see you like Gankutsuou, and I've been wanting to watch it for a LONG time. Is it really that good?

So yeh, i'm a bit farther in now (close to the end of the arc) and Munsu leaving immediately has some parallels to Guts, but the reasoning might be a bit different. That's also the reason that soured Won Sul and Munsus relationship? Him leaving and not wanting to be a general for his men anymore.

Holy fuck, you weren't kidding about that Aji Tae/King confusion. I'm confused as fuck.
Also, grandpa blacksmith has summoning powers now, whaa?
And the sacrifice spell makes no sense to me anymore. Munsu now has god-slappin powers, i guess.
And what's his problemo with giving that poor girl some lovin?
Aji Tae's motivations are not fully clear to me either. Eliminate ugliness, make everyone into demons for reasons?
My brain is full of fuck.
Still enjoying the ride, tho.

Munsu's is nowhere near as frequently angry as Guts, but that panel was indeed fist-pumpingly good.
Fucking Bang Ja, i swear. The artist in general gets really retarded whenever he switches into overdrawn goofy designs, they are always so damn misplaced. Puck i could at least kinda stand, since he's a fairy (and small), but Bang Ja is supposed to be a human dude.

No idea what's up with those images. I checked the links after i replied and they were fine, but now they're tiny. Anyway, you get what i mean.
Assistants will always be there to help with deadlines, though i'm sure the artists could do all the detail on their own, given enough time.
I have to wonder what Miuras deadlines are tho. Don't seem to be too tight.

Won Sul is a cool dude. Seeing a zombie with intelligence/determination in his eyes is a new breed of terror.

Aww shit, getting that praise from you feels good. I'm always worried about about my reviews, because i never go too in-depth, but i guess being able to summarize my thoughts in shorter/more readable way has it's merits as well.
I didn't have a huge problem with the episodic content in SnM, as episodic stuff is always hard to pull off imo, but so long as it's used for character development, it's fine i guess.
I think the reason why i idolize your stuff (amongst some others) is because you seem to strike a good balance between being entertaining and insightful, something i myself would like to master eventually, ratings be damned.
I'm sure my ratings will go down with time as well, they always seem to, for some reason. (my Terraformars review had 75% approval at one point, now it's down to barely 50%)

Is that spearfight from Akatsuki no Yona? I actually downloaded the series and have it sitting on my hard-drive now. I need to watch it eventually to find out what the deal with that squirrel is.
btw you changed your profile pic and now i can no longer pretend like all your posts are written by a cute lil squirrel in a dress.

I'm sure Isidro will play an important role eventually as well. Possibly adding to my ending theory: Guts goes full-on Skull Knight, Isidro takes up his mantle as swordsman and travels the lands with the rest of the group (should they survive) and defends people from apostle shenanigans?
I found a Berserk timeline online and apparently only two years have passed since the eclipse. Guts aging seems heavily accelerated due to stress tho.

Funny you mention Kill Bill, that's possibly my favorite movie.
Still, the problem is that Guts doesn't seem to have any chemistry whatsoever with the rest of the G-hand, which wouldn't make the fights terribly interesting either way.
Except with sexy-demon-chick, though i honestly forget what the two even talked about that one time.
Or maybe it'll be something dumb like the G-hand fusing into one huge monster or some shit, lel.

I'll be sure to give Wolfsmund a check after SAO, sounds an awful lot like Berserk golden age, which is cool enough. Except set in mah country and our cool-ass swiss neighbors.

"thanks for not raping me, hero-man"
that chick doesn't have high standards. Reminds me of Rapeman, where the titular hero rapes chicks into being better persons.

Mad Bull with english dubs it is then. Seems to make sense in this case.

I bought the PS4 for Bloodborne alone, no fuck given. Was worth it. Got the plat too.
And Persona 5/Metal Gear Solid 5, but those are not out yet.
I'll add you when i think of it, we'll e-waifu it up or something.

PS: saw the Raid on your profile. Das some good shit.

Hello!

Not seen you around before; and I'm sorry if I'm wasting your time but I do have a question; how is it you have more than five "favorites?"

Also see you associate with Malfegor; he's a cool guy, fun to talk to.
