Hey, how's it going? On your profile it says you last logged in a week ago so you're probably at least alive. Also, while I'm on the subject of your profile what happened to our anime/manga affinity? 11.2/14.9% respectively? What the hell is going on with that? Back in the day it was like 50-60 right? MAL must have fucked with the formula at some point. They've fucked with a lot of shit on this site.

I'm getting side tracked. Life update: Literally the day after I messaged you my girlfriend told me she had enough time off in February to come visit me. She got her plane ticket right then and her flight gets here the day after tomorrow. That's why I'm writing this message now because otherwise I would have had to put it off for two more weeks and then I would have been feeling shitty after she left and put it off for two more weeks and it just would have been a whole thing. Besides I finished Inuyashiki a few days ago and It's better that I type to you with it fresh in my mind. Also, because my girlfriend is coming to visit I stopped applying for internships/entry-level jobs temporarily until she leaves. I didn't want to deal with work or interviews while also trying to cram six months worth of sex into thirteen days. My priorities are out of wack, I know. Getting a girlfriend didn't fix my mental problems.

Inuyashiki: I rated it a 6, but it has the same Gantz-like quality of being so in-your-face, over-the-top that I couldn't help but keep watching. There were actually a lot of parallels to Gantz I saw other than the blatant posters on the bedroom wall (which, yes, I did enjoy a lot. Proof that somewhere deep down inside of me a tiny little anime heart still beats). Oku can write a really good premise and he's really good at ramping up violence to absurd and shocking levels. But substance-wise? Character development? Plot? He's hopeless. The reason that Gantz worked (for most of it's run) is that most of the main plots (missions) didn't lead into each other fluidly. The randomness of being teleported from slice-of-life to hyper death mission was an actual physical part of the story. Oku didn't give himself that same luxury in Inuyashiki so his biggest glaring weakness was on full display.

Oku could never decide where he wanted Hiro's character to end up. At first he was a pretty interesting sociopathic serial killer, but then that girl let him live with her for some reason which didn't make any sense. Why would a school girl let a known serial killer live with her? Just because she thought he was cute? Like he was using her apartment as a home base for mass murder. He literally told her to her face that the news was right and he regularly shoots people. I saw it as Oku's failed attempt to try and humanize Hiro, but we've seen him shoot small children in the head on separate fucking occasions and you just can't come back from that so quickly. His little redemption at the end felt stupid and hollow. I feel like Oku should have kept him purely sociopathic instead of doing a half-assed attempt at making him likable.

I also felt like Oku could have done a lot more with robotic super hero Jesus people. For example, why didn't people in the world ever...you know...talk about it? Hiro went into a police headquarters and killed 100 police officers and SWAT members and left without a cut. People were shooting him with machine guns point blank. He was CLEARLY shooting them with his finger tip. WHY DIDN'T ANYONE SAY ANYTHING ABOUT HIM BEING AN IMMORTAL ROBOT. It wasn't mentioned in any of the several news reports we saw. People weren't talking about it on the internet. It was bizarre. Gantz could get away with it because the characters were mostly just interacting with themselves and they were invisible on missions, but in Inuyashiki characters are directly interacting with the flying Jesus robot people all the time. And at least in Gantz when people finally did see the Gantz members they had the wherewithal to question what the fuck they were looking at. It made the Inuyashiki universe feel cheap and fake. The CGI parts were mostly ugly too.

But hey, even with all that I still found a way to enjoy it. Oku is just good at crazy violence. It was fun if I turned my brain off.

Shingeki no Kyojin: Are you up to date with the manga? It's about the only thing I still read outside of books (I'm on the second GoT book btw). Shingeki has actually been pretty good lately. I'm legitimately liking it a lot. The build-up to the 'final' battle was really tense and I actually have some hope that it might even have a good ending. Mikasa finally appeared post-timeskip and I think you'll like her design.

How is there going to be an anime on vol 24-26 when they haven't adapted the chapters that come before? Are they going to do like a quikie recap thing? I don't get it.

Vikings: I guess I'll put season 3 on my hypothetical watch list. I'm not making any promises that I'll actually finish it though. 20 episodes seems like a few too many.

I'm out of energy now. I'm going to recharge by playing some Minecraft and then take a good long sleep. Good luck with your retard test.

Tot ziens!

Hello! Nice review on Battle Royale, Can you tell me where you read the novel?
Kisumi24 Dec 28, 2017 10:57 PM
One questionnnn, where is the picture on your profile from?

Edit: Wait nvm, found it
xbobx Dec 15, 2017 1:15 PM
A belated reply to a belated reply makes everything fine.

Amazon reviews are a surprisingly good source of information. There's a lot of people with obscure niche blogs that reviews the product on their site and then paste it on Amazon. So you can sometimes find actual comprehensive reviews with pictures, details and et cetera. It's also fun to read the passive-aggressive rage reviews and the baits "I bought this for my shy daughter and now she spends a lot of time with her girlfriends" for series like Prisma Illya.
>Whereabouts do you live if it cost you THAT much for shipping?
Brasil. The only place on Earth that can't be ICBM'ed or invaded by any foreign nation because upon arrival they would be submitted to customs and get taxed 150% + fees on their belongings. Not to mention their weapons and supplies arriving through cargo planes and ships would also be lost by our excellent and reliable public postal service.
Jokes aside, I usually end up paying ridiculous amounts for shipping because, aware of the chaos, most online retailers already boost it so it can include the import taxes, theoretically speeding up the process.
For Chrono, though, the huge price was a result of me choosing FedEx instead of USPS so when it arrived here it would be handled by FedEx BR instead of "Correios" (our USPS) which would certainly destroy and/or loose all my books.

>but didn't Chrno and Aion have a heart-to-heart at the very end? I distinctly recall Aion referring to Chrno as his brother... been too long.
In the manga, yea. But not in the anime.
It's one of my favorite chapters actually. By volume 7 we already knew Chrono and Aion, along with the other sinners, were long-time friends thanks to the previous flashbacks but it's during their final 1v1 that we get all the truth (and the stuff about the demons actually being aliens). They were indeed blood-related brothers.
When the "demons" arrived, their AI supercomputer that controlled most of the ship's (Pandemonium) system malfunctioned and they required a replacement. After attempting with multiple demon "voluntaries" they found out that a human woman was a perfect match (for PLOT reasons), therefore abducting her and stitching the girl to some tech-whatever-control-core. It just happens that she was pregnant, of twins. Then, once again for PLOT reasons the demons decided to keep the kids and raise them because they believed both would become very powerful thanks to this organic affinity to Pandemonium's goo or whatever.
They eventually do become strong. Strong enough to make the elders fear them and discriminate against them. Aion tries to understand why and eventually discovers the whole story.
Already pissed with the manner their society was organized and the dictatorship of the elders, he decided to rebel and start an uprising. The uprising became a civil war, and the rest we all know.
I can't really hate him. Just like Chrono concludes in the end, he had a "good" goal but got lost along the path.

> Is that Kyouko from Maison Ikkoku?
Same author, different series. That's actually my wife Kagome from the first Inuyasha ED (the ferris wheel one).
I rewatched everything (EVERYTHING) a couple of months ago. Mostly out of nostalgia after listening to some Do as Infinity songs again, but also because I never got to watch the Final Act.
Nostalgia truck hit like a fully loaded train. I honestly can't listen to any of those ending themes, especially Ayu's Dearest, without tearing up.
They are just too damn good.

Hello, again. Like you, I don't really know why I keep coming back to MAL. Usually I come back here to look up a manga or anime I happen to hear about by chance online somewhere. A part of me still has the desire to read a really engrossing manga or watch some new interesting anime, but it hasn't happened for years. I recently tried watching 'Made in Abyss' with it's ridiculous 8.9 rating but only got two episodes in before the overly fluffy cute character designs bothered me too much to continue. I doubt I'll find any manga/anime series worth consuming anytime soon. Still eagerly awaiting the next season of One Punch Man though so no reason to delete my account quite yet. Plus there are my messages with you of course.

About my internship hunting: Applied to dozens of places and barely heard a peep. Never got interviewed. Shit is way tougher than I thought. I'm focusing on trying to get an internship that starts around January/February, but my hopes aren't high. Still going to try, though. Nothing else to do. My last semester starts in a month and I'm honestly looking forward to school work. The past few months have been me sitting at home not working or studying. I'm falling into old procrastinating habits and becoming comfortable with lazy days filled with reading, television, and video games. It really scares me how much I enjoy that kind of life. I can't wait for the miserable day to day grind of being productive.

Have you had your 'Am I crazy enough to get money?' interview yet? What exactly are you hoping for? On the one hand you're mentally challenged, but you get money. On the other hand you're mentally okay-ish, but then you have to get a job.

About Belgium: My girlfriend's home town is a little mining town made up of a lot of second/third generation immigrants mostly from Greece, Italy, Turkey, and other southern European countries. She's half Greek herself. It seemed perfectly fine to me, but I wouldn't call it classy. There are a few bad areas in Belgium and even one city my girlfriend calls "terrorist town", but we obviously didn't go there. We went around Antwerp and Brussels with no issues. The only problem we had with anybody was in her tiny town when she got cat called by some (white) guy she went to high school with. I had no idea what was happening at the time since he was speaking Flemish, but she told me later he said stuff about her ass. It was a really awkward and gross situation, but it didn't involve Muslims or migrants.

Of course you're the one guy who didn't like Witcher 3. Don't get me wrong, it's not the kind of game I'd ever play by myself, but sitting next to somebody it was kind of great. The only games I actually play on my own are pokemon and jrpgs. I'm all about that turn based gameplay.

Also you read the Game of Thrones books right? I just finished the first one. I'm purposefully not going to rush through the series. I'm reading some other books before I start the next one to try and preserve 'good GoT' as much as possible. I keep getting told over and over again how bad books 4 and 5 are and I believe it. The only thing that gives me hope is that they can't possibly be as bad as season 6. I know I said it in my last message, but season 6 fucking blows dicks. Really.

I watched the first two seasons of Vikings. You've been pushing this series on me for years and I hate to say it, but it was just kind of average. Maybe even bellow average. Ragnar is an interesting main character and his wife is as MILF as MILFs get. Seriously, like damn. But every character in the show goes through rapid and unfounded development. Ragnar's brother goes from a rapist wanting to murder his brother so badly he starts a war to...not wanting to murder him. I'm assuming because the plot demanded the main character not to die. Then you have the monk who is a fucking monk and after a time skip he's slaughtering his fellow countrymen with an ax. No explanation given. Or was the shrooms and sex scene supposed to tell the viewers that he's an ax murder now? By the way that dude got literally nailed to a cross by his hands and feet and two episodes later was walking around with no scars on his hands. Apparently crucifixions are only minor flesh wounds. And Siggy. Why is Siggy in the show at all? And we have to talk about the pacing. The pacing is as wild as I've ever seen in a TV series. Over the 19 episodes I watched there were like 5 time skips and they all came at such random times. Sometimes in the middle of an episode. It was nauseating. I never knew when I was. Also Ragnar's second wife has an ugly bitch face. Doesn't make any sense that he'd cheat on his hottie wife with a girl you can only fuck in the dark.

Anyways, sorry for shitting on one of your favorite shows. It just wasn't for me.

I'll look into maybe watching Inuyashiki in the future. I will say that my love of Gantz hasn't aged well. It's more of a nostalgia-ish "I loved it when I was an angsty teenager" kind of love. Maybe I just don't like manga/anime anymore? Ugh. I don't know. Problems for later. I've been typing for way too long.

I'll see you later, man. Good luck with everything.

Ankithadam Oct 30, 2017 3:20 AM
hi did you watch when they cry part 2?
Ankithadam Oct 30, 2017 2:51 AM
Hi do you remember about Princess sara story..? it was my childhood anime....can you please tell me the ending as i forgot about it?
(i dont want to spend my time on it) as per my knowledge princess sara's father's friend comes to her rescue and takes her away or is it something else?
phs_togusa Sep 16, 2017 6:11 PM
Thanks for the kind words my dude. I will say this in Aku no Hana's favour - it's nowhere near as fucking stupid as Onani Master Kurosawa. You want to talk about undeserved happy endings? Just read Kurosawa and see how long it takes for you to get a migraine. Say what you will about Kasuga, but at least you can make an argument that after confronting Nakamura for the first time in years, he finally got closure. With that in mind, the ending of Hana left me wondering what the fuck happened to Nakamura in all that time if she had hallucinations about insects covering her.

As far as my ratings go, they don't really mean much these days. After a certain point, I just stopped caring about what to rank a series because it was too much of a bother to factor in storytelling, characterisation, artwork, etc. Nowadays, I just rate in accordance with how likely I am to recommend something. 7 or higher, I would heartily recommend. 4 or lower and I would say it's not worth it. 5/6 is "I like it to an extent but I'm not likely to recommend." The only thing a higher number means is that I enjoyed it more.

As for Berserk, I'm actually working on an updated review of the manga. If you want to know the condensed version of why my opinon of the manga has sunk so low, well you'd be right on the money if you guessed it's because of Miura. I seriously don't understand why Berserk is still venerated as the greatest manga of all time when its glory days have long since passed. At this point in time, Berserk has way more in the way of boring valleys than enthralling peaks. Not to mention how we're 350~ chapters into the manga's run and we STILL don't have any mention of the Idea of Evil. Like wtf? Miura said that he rescinded the chapter because it spoiled too much about the overall story but where the fuck is the story going? He's not like Eiichiro Oda who actually puts thought and effort into his story.

"Berserk is dead. It will remain dead, and Kentaro Miura killed it," - Friedrich Nietzsche.

Hey there!
You just costed me roughly US$170 (half of it was shipping, ironically) and I guess I should be... thanking you for that.
I finished Chrono Crusade years ago and rewatched it a couple of months ago but never really cared about the manga until I read your review on its Amazon page and decided to give it a try.
Not sure if I was drunk when I decided on it but instead of reading it online first, like an intelligent weeabooshit would do, I just bought all 8 volumes and paid for international shipping (and no, I'm not rich). Turns out it was probably one of the best anime/manga-related purchases I ever did.
ADV did a great job with the translation, I loved Moriyama's art and the story is so much better developed than in the anime. It satiated all of my backstory needs and fixed some of the wrong impressions the anime left (as someone who was raised in a catholic family, having a character born in 1800s be named Mary Magdalene bothered me. Turns out the "Magdalene" part is because she was an orphan Mary with no surname adopted by the Magdalene Order. Sasuga!).
I ended up agreeing with a lot of the points you raised, especially on how manga Aion is ridiculously superior to NTRing rape-addicted anime Aion. Though I'd disagree on the pacing issues and I actually loved the alien twist in the plot. But perhaps the most significant reason that makes me prefer the manga over the anime is how the narrative climaxes. Having the final battle be between clashing armies felt much more satisfying than Chrono and Aion fighting over a passed out Rosette. Oh and manga Rosette becomes so assertive and confident as the story approaches its finale that it gave me goosebumps.

Oh well, seems like it's becoming an habit coming here to thank you for unexpected recommendations on unexpected series. I guess it was Maoyuu the last time? Sweet Jesus that was 4 years ago.
Now everything makes me genuinely afraid of my own mortality. Thanks Chrono Crusade!
Tumerking Sep 3, 2017 8:25 PM
Hey, I'm back.

I've been back for about a month. Like you, I assumed I'd have an internship by this point, but things are looking kinda dicey. I tried getting one through my school, but they're being really slow about it. It's starting to look like I have to venture out and apply to places on my own which scares the shit out of me. Job interviews give me anxiety like crazy, and in the past I've only applied to a couple fast food places and a restaurant. This time I've got to apply to actual skilled positions and demonstrate knowledge of my field of study in an interview all while every fiber of my being is yelling at me to run away and scream and cry and never come back. I'm already feeling anxious and I haven't applied anywhere yet.

Ugh, sorry for venting. I needed it. Real life sucks.

On the flip-side my Belgium girlfriend trip was a success. Two weeks in we took a cheap flight to Prague, stayed for a few days, ate some good Czech food, walked around everyday til our feet hurt, flew back and just relaxed for the last two weeks.

She has an xbox one and made me play Witcher 3. That games a blast. I see you've played it on PS4. I'm assuming you think it's amazing too? I only played for about 7-8 hours, but I watched my girlfriend play a few hours on her save file as well. She was about 70 hours in and only half way through the game. The side quests, the combat, the gigantic world...the amount of content is overwhelming. The hype for Cyberpunk 2077 is real. She had also just gotten Final Fantasy 15 so we both experienced that game for the first time. It was way better than either of us expected. I highly recommend it. We even watched the prequel movie that goes along with it.

Oh, and we had a bunch of sex. Real life can be awesome sometimes too.

...

I can't wait for AoT season 3: death of a fanbase. If the anime turns average paced manga chapters into horribly paced anime, what the hell are they going to turn horribly paced manga chapters into? Maybe the best thing for them to do is pull a Death Note season 2 and rush through all the shit parts. They won't though. They know the fanbase is too large and too loyal.

Speaking of giant loyal fanbases getting served horribly paced hot garbage what in the fuck happened to Game of Thrones this season? Granted seasons 5 and 6 weren't nearly as good as 1-4, but they were decent enough for the most part with a couple good episodes. But season 7... I honestly don't even know where to start. The winterfell story line is where the writers put all the characters they didn't know what to do with and had them play a little game for our entertainment. The end result? The death of the most interesting character they knew least what to do with. The "Beyond the Wall" episode is an insult. Jon Snow and Dragon girl have the least convincing and most forced romance I've maybe ever seen. What was the point of Jorah getting greyscale? Why is he even still doing things? Did you listen to the dialogue this season? Jon forgiving Theon is cringey as hell. ENTIRE ARMIES ARE TELEPORTING AROUND THE WORLD IN NO TIME AT ALL! THOSE CAVE DRAWINGS LOOK CORNY AS FUCK!

I could go on, but it's getting late and I should calm down before going to sleep.

See ya next time, friend.

Junjo_J Aug 26, 2017 12:56 AM
hey , good review on the break blade anime :D . i wanted to ask you something: i'm still intrested somewhat in break blade, but where should i begin, the movies or the manga ?
MisterGibbon Jul 12, 2017 6:46 PM
Hi,
Just to let you know I really enjoyed your take on Parasyte - it's like you took the words right out of my head. Never read the manga though, so I wouldn't know how bad it was at an adaptation level (not that I think I need to at this point, mind you...)

And by the way, I can barely believe I've met another guy who actually watched Licensed by Royalty (dropped the show myself at around half-point but I was really taken in by its groovy atmosphere - in fact I've written a review about it). Without spoiling, how good do you honestly think the show is? What I saw so far felt quite preposterous but still halfway enjoyable at a basic entertainment level, so I'm in half a mind to see it through. Do you honestly think it's worth it?
Tumerking Jun 24, 2017 8:36 PM
Hey, look at me replying to your message in a timely fashion!

I'm leaving for Belgium in five days and with work, packing a suitcase, my mom's birthday, and a freshly dead car battery this is one of the only times I'll have to hammer out some paragraphs. I could've waited until I got back at the end of July, but I'll be applying for internships then which will give me massive anxiety and destroy my ability to focus on anything at all. So rather, I'm striking while the iron is hot and my head is clear.

AoT Season 2: The great animation carried it, and the pacing absolutely killed it. It felt like a lot of episodes were either brought to a screeching halt by heavy chunks of dialogue or were just 90%+ dialogue all together. Was this the case with season 1 as well? I only ever watched a few episodes and I can't remember much. Overall the anime was disappointingly good. Knowing the content the anime was going to be covering for season 2, I was legitimately excited. It's why I wanted to watch this season in the first place. This was an amazing section of manga and probably Shingeki no Kyojin's high point, and it got turned into a just pretty good anime. What the absolute fuck is going to happen in season 3 when the manga content is absolute shit? Ah well. I was hardly invested in the anime adaption to begin with.

So I guess you've dropped the manga for good? The human v human shite does end eventually and it goes back to being pretty cool. The Levi v Beast titan fight that you linked me being a good example of that. I don't know exactly what you mean by '2000 year thing', but eventually there is a one year time skip that lasts exactly ONE chapter if that. And then the very next chapter there's like a four year time skip. And yes it's extremely hard to follow exactly wtf is going on, but after a few chapters it's settled down and I actually enjoy the new direction the manga has taken.

I don't blame you for dropping it, though. My girlfriend dropped it at around the same stupid wild west shoot out/politics part you did. She doesn't watch/read too much anime/manga anymore now that she's in university, but she does really like One Punch Man. Also she decided she didn't want to go to the Japanese convention anymore. Something about her anxiety. I'm not broken up about it. And yea, the relationship is as strong as ever. Literally. She's been working out the past few months and went from an 'average' body type to 'fitgirl'. I won the lottery with this one.

Twin Peaks: Yea, I really wanted to finish season 2 so I could be all caught up for the 20 year late brand new season 3, but that show got boring as fuck. I'm glad it got cancelled.

Leftovers: It's a show that takes place three years after 2% of the world's human population randomly and suddenly disappears out of existence. Nobody knows why or how and they're forced to just kind of move on. The show takes itself VERY seriously at times and I nearly dropped it in season one for being so bizarre. To give you some context, the most 'ominous' and 'frightening' group of people are a bunch of chubby, middle-aged women, who only communicate through notepads and markers, and who smoke cigarettes because 'life is meaningless'. So the first season has it's fair share of rough patches, but it also has very moving scenes of loss and coping and faith and you begin to understand that the goofy chubby women are just trying to find meaning in a life which doesn't make sense anymore. Season 2 and 3 get better and better, but it's one of those shows where you either love it or hate it and I won't hold it against you if it's not your cuppa tea.

Weeeeeeeeeeeeell that about does it for me. I'll see you when I get back. Tata for now.
