Sorry for the super super late reply! I hate not responding, I've just been so lazy haha.

Nice! I actually bought myself a MacBook (like yesterday to be exact) which isn't really good for gaming but i wanted a good computer for college. Good luck with SnU, and let me know your thoughts on it after you play it! Speaking of vns, what's your opinion on the Rewrite and planetarian adaptions so far? Just curious considering you're a huge Key fan.

So I've heard, they really seem to be hyping it up! So much that it'll be released in the US first! I'm really excited to hear more info on that.

It's a good time to be a light novel reader in the US. Monogatari, Baccano, KonoSuba, Re:zero, Oregairu, all kinds of stuff is coming our way! And people thought it would be unprofitable haha. I watched the first episode of Hatsuoki Monster and it was soooooo bad. Stay far away from that if you haven't already. Are you watching Handa-kun? I completely forgot about it, but I won't watch it until it finishes cause I don't want to watch too many simulcasts. I used to watch much more and I kind of miss it, but time constraints. :/

How did you feel about the spring season overall? I ended up not watching much but there were some standouts. Best completed series for me was Flying Witch and Ushio & Tora S2, but Re:zero and Macross Dleta are definitely at the top of the list. I still can't believe I finished Mayoiga, and I'm glad I didn't watch Big Order lol. I can't imagine that what the BDs will bring for that though ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Wow, I guess I need to jump on that hype train. Thats the one light novel I want to read, especially since its completed and doesn't have 20+ volumes. Any chance of it getting an anime adaption? Or would that be too complicated? Its okay! I'm not one to complain about people talking about things i haven't seen or read, I could give two shits about spoilers as well haha.

I said I would watch SAC first, but I went ahead and started Ergo Proxy haha. That's next on my list! (Should probably finish Chihayafuru and other stuff I put on hold first haha)

Yeah, i was telling a few people that they needed to catch up a little while ago. That episode had to be one of the best directed episodes i've seen in a while. The VA work from both Matsuoka and Kobayashi were steller, especially with the raw emotion and despair. This has to be among the purest un-adultrated suffering i've seen in quite some time.
FontSize72LOL Jul 10, 9:29 PM
Oh shit, nvm, I didn't notice you were on 15. Since i looked at the stats page after i finished it and it still showed you at 13 lol.
FontSize72LOL Jul 10, 8:56 PM
Discord is actually pretty decent. I need to convince Ryan to make the switch so i'm a step closer to uninstalling skype. You need to catch up on Re:Zero man, the latest episode was something else.
FontSize72LOL Jul 9, 1:55 PM
Just curious, do you have a Skype/Discord that you use? I feel like i might want send you some Rewrite rants in real time lol.
FontSize72LOL Jul 2, 3:48 PM
Well if they keep Terra as a standalone and adapt it reasonably well and faithfully, I'll give THAT a pretty good score. However, I'm not a big fan of how they're ruining the tone which partially made the VN so good, with its pacing. Who knows though, I'm trying not to put too much judgement given this was pre-announced to be an anime original route, but i was atleast hoping they'd keep the tone the same.

But yeah, It WAS better than i was intially expecting, especially when hearing it was going to be 1 cour.
FontSize72LOL Jul 2, 3:04 PM
Well, i just watched episode 1. It certainly could've been worse but jesus christ why didn't they give this 2 cours, and slow the pace down a bit. The source material deserves more than this. Just based on the first episode with the knowledge of the setting, I can only give this around a 6, maybe 7 max depending.
FontSize72LOL Jun 25, 12:10 AM
Well people thinking it was going to get more than 2 seasons (non-refrain) were deluding themselves, but I have no idea how they can condense all of this down into one cour without butchering it. Plus any secondaries that watch the anime without reading the VN will get super spoiled on the plot twists :(.

The most optimistic thing i could go with is them adapting JUST the "6th route", Ignoring the other heroine routes or combining elements from them.
FontSize72LOL Jun 5, 10:39 AM
Well, we'll see. Yeah Comyu wasn't that great but i don't know if i'd exactly blame it on Ixrec or just the type of VN that it was. I liked a few things about Comyu but for a chunni title, it wasn't close to something like Tokyo Babel, or Ayakashibito.

I haven't been keeping up with Rewrite's news as much as i could have. I didn't even know it was slated to have a 1 hour long first episode, but honestly thats good news. The more airtime thats garunteed, the better. Now if only we get an announcement that its going to be at least 2 cour, that would make me feel a little better. I still have to get around to watching Rakugo though.

Yeah, I kind of crunched my ratings a bit on VNs, so 7/10 is still good, 6 is where it starts to get iffy for me there. I haven't been reading much VNs lately, kind of stalled out on Majikoi S. I'm thinking of maybe picking up Cartagra or Swan Song.

Well, i finally finished Alabasta, so Ryan should be pleased at me. He has been telling me for a while how much further you are in the manga, and how disappointed he was in me and it was making me sad. I'll probably watch a few more episodes before i move on to other stuff for the day. I ended up skipping sleep to flip my schedule since i've been waking up at 5-6pm.

Anyways, have a best fate waifu:

Thank god it's summer, now I have (some) of all the time I want to be on here again <3

That's good! I need a new laptop soooo bad, I just have no idea which one to get. Let me know how Saya no Uta is. I've always been interested, I just don't have the balls to actually read it at the moment since... That's not really my sort of thing haha. Isn't it crazy? First Planetarian, then Clannad, then Little Busters and Rewrite, and soon even Harmonia, which is being released in English first is coming to us. Visual Arts really cares about their English audience.

Konosuba was great, glad you liked it. I'm very excited about Yen Press licensing the novels. I hope Deen keeps the streak up, they're out of this world right now.

I have to agree, Ushio is my favorite right behind Re:Zero, which is getting better and better. I've heard great things about Tanaka-kun and the guy who directed Non Non Biyori, so I have no idea why I didn't pick it up. I'll have to watch it soon. How is Kuromukuro? I kneel Netflix will most likely get it, so I'm waiting on that. Yeah, Mayoiga and Big Order definitely disappointed me. Still watching Mayoiga, but I dropped Big Order after the first episode haha.

Damn, where did you read all of HakoMori at? I've been wanting to read that. What are your thoughts on it?

I've seen both the first two movies and they were both awesome, so I guess I really need to check out SAC soon. I guess that's gonna be the next show I start after I catch up on all my airing series!
FontSize72LOL May 22, 5:00 PM
It is kind of funny that so many people seem to hate Ixrec's translations though. Sure, they're not perfect but honestly who is these days? They're not even that bad, and i've definitely seen worse come out of MangaGamer in the past (And they're supposed to be "professionals"). I'm definitely looking forward to it, though. Rewrite is one of those few VNs that i really want to support but its really hard to import anything from Japan, even if you have the money. But yeah, I sure hope that this means that they're actually going to make an effort in adapting this show. Honestly this might be Keys last chance to save face after that trainwreck that was Charlotte. Angel Beats was obviously not as good as it could've been with another cour and some more careful pacing, either.

Koisuru Natsu no Last Resort is alright. I wont go into specifics because i don't want to spoil things, but its pretty a pretty sweet moege (and i mean that in more ways than one). Its pretty romance heavy, and most of the characters are fairly likable and the art is nice. It has a fair amount of h-scenes for its length [I'd say it took me only 20 hours to 100%] (roughly 5~6 per route + 2 in the bonus route), although i wouldn't say it was excessive as much as i would've liked a little more build up on a few of the routes. I liked the fact that it wasn't set in a highschool, but the heroines were essentially co-workers which isn't an angle that you see everyday. However without going into the nitty gritty there are some gripes i had with it, so i ended up giving it a 7/10. Its a nice change in pace if you're looking for something light-hearted and sweet, but don't expect any award winning narrative from this.

Yeah, i still need to get back into watching D.Gray-man. I watched a few of the earlier episodes, but having gotten around to picking it back up. But yeah, i'm pretty hyped for Summer, I might actually have a decent amount of shows on my plate if i don't end up busy with anything else.

TL purgatory is hell, though :(.

Sorry for the super late reply, I've been so busy. Hope you're doing well :)

If you couldn't get IMHHW to work there's no way I'll be able to. Before I start anything else, I need to finish Grisaia first. I also backed the Muv-Luv Kickstarter so I can't wait to finally play those. Mahoutsukai no Yoru seems interesting, let me know how that one goes.

Erased really was a 9/10 until the last 3 or 4 episodes for me, so I would have to agree. I bumped my score up for Shouwa, and KonoSuba is the funniest show I've seen in a long time. Did you watch it yet? If not, do it!! Deen is killing it with Sakamoto as well, I hope they continue this streak.

I really wish I watched the first four of Revolutio, the way you describe it kinda hypes it up for me. What are your favorites of the season so far? The top of the list for me are Re:zero, Flying Witch, Kiznaiver, BNHA, and Macross Delta. Also really enjoying Bungou Stray Dogs and the new Sailor Moon. And yes, I liked Delta enough to want to check out older entries, I did not expect it to be as good or interesting as it is at the moment.

Now I'm super excited to read Kizu, and watch it! I'm so happy Vertical is going to release the novels, that's the only novel I really wanted licensed <3

How was GiTS SAC? That's been on my PTW for soooooo long and I still haven't gotten around to watching it.
FontSize72LOL May 1, 10:11 PM
Remember11 was just something i haven't got around to yet. I'm like 90% of the way through I/O and its... something. I'm not sure if you've read it, and i don't want to say much but its probably one of the more ambitious VNs i've read in its execution. Its fairly polarizing though, there are certain developments you're either going to like or you're not, not to mention several nitpicky things that i don't really want to point out at this time. I currently have it a 9/10. I/O is written by the same person that did Remember 11, as well as Co-directed by Romeo Tanaka so, yee. Never 7 wasn't bad though, I found the majority of the heroines eventually likable, although its not nearly as good as Ever17 in execution. I probably wont read Rmember 11 for a little bit though, I/O is pretty mindfucky as it is so i think the next few VNs i pick up are going to be some easy to digest ones.

Summer is looking like one of the best seasons in the last few years. You have Rewrite, Planatarian, Orange, ReLIFE, Mob Psycho 100, Handa-kun, as well as several sequels. Rewrite looks alright, and i'm not really holding my breath that we're going to get a "VN" experience, rather i just hope we get something that doesn't spit on the source materials integrity. Here's to hoping we get an "Inoue" anime orginal route or something, if they only plan on doing a cour or something.

Right now i'm kind of just browsing around at the few options i have left for english translated VNs, lamenting that i don't know enough moon to go through anything raw.
FontSize72LOL Apr 23, 1:33 AM
So yeah, i just finished Tokyo Babel. It was pretty good if you're looking for a decent non-ero chuuni/action genre'd VN. At the very least, it was pretty interesting. It has an A+ voice cast for it being a VN, something i either forgot or didn't realize when i first looked at it. I'd say overall i'd give it an 8/10, maybe an 8.5 if i'm generous.

I mean i have a few gripes but i don't want to get into it too deeply just in case you get around to reading it but yeah, if you're still interested in VNs i thought i'd let you know that its atleast worth checking out.
