I went into this season only expecting to pick up maybe 5 shows, and i'm probably going to end up picking up 10, and probably going to eventually pick up a few others from this season later on. My current top 3 for this season are currently Boku no Hero Academia, SukaSuka, and Re:Creators. Re:Creators is probably the most volitile show, It could easily multi-track drift, trainwreck itself, but honestly the show has a pretty solid staff so i hope it keeps being entertaining. The OST is 10/10, at the very least.

I didn't hate the ending of Terra, but i was a little disappointed by it. I honestly felt like if they had 1 more episode, it would have been a more complete adaption, since it would have given them the time to allow for the impact of the more major events to settle. 2 more episodes would have allowed for moon to not get rushed as much as it did.

The orginal Gundam wasn't that bad though. Zeta Gundam is a bit better. I'm no fan of the mecha genre though so sometimes its hard to keep my interest in the show, but the older style is a bit refreshing sometimes. I can tell a few shows i've watched have drawn some inspiration from Gundam. For example: Eureka Seven there are some parrallels, same with NGE. My biggest complaint are that the characters in U.C Gundam are generally weak (poorly developed) and unrelatable.

Anyway, I think its about time for you to pick up a certain show, Friend. Kemono Friends.

Tfw I decided to trek through the Gundam franchise. Its out of my comfort zone but i suppose i enjoyed it decently. I'm planning on watching as many of the entries i can stomach, even the decidedly bad ones. Probably going to save 00 for last though.

It's not like you need to tag every part of the conversation, but even when there are only two people talking, you should do a fair amount of it. Also, you can use it to add actions to your characters e.g "'I absolutely hate apple pie!' Jeffrey scrunched up his nose while saying so". Adding life to the conversation that way can help liven things up.

So that's why you have galleys, dojos and Go, huh? I see where you're coming from. Though I think you should diversify a bit more if you're doing that because having two terms from one country can make it seem like you're focusing on it, especially since you don't have many terms from other countries. I'd say keep the Go, but swap out dojo for barrack because the picture that comes into my head when you say 'dojo' is very different from what I think you're getting at. But it's your story so don't listen to me if you aren't comfortable with it.

Don't underestimate simple sentences. Of course, having simple sentence fter simple sentence will give you a disjointed work, but don't shy away from them otherwise. It's not like noun phrases as descriptors are bad things, but I just felt it was strange reading a sentence with a noun phrase in one paragraph, then looking at another one shortly after. Two sentences aren't necessarily worse than one.

I'd say they were fine. I didn't feel any emotional connection with them, but that's not a problem considering how I've only just started the story and I'm not even the kind of person to fall in love with characters easily. Good work once again, and sorry for the delay.

I've sent it over. It was a good read over all.

Just a few issues. I was pulled into the narrative fairly quickly though.

G-Senjou no Maou is pretty entertaining. I didn't really care for the route structure, but the main route was great. The others felt more like icing than anything else. The iffy vibes are kind of justified, just a little bit. Unfortunately there are a few holes here and there, but if presented right, they shouldn't be too significant. I remember going through Clannad Afterstory with the Machine Translated version, and i still kind of enjoyed it. Key definitely has that kind of thing sorted out pretty well. There is a 100% patch for Dracu Riot, Just not 100% edited. Miu's route wasn't fully edited, they might have patched it by now since apparently there are still a few people working on the editing process right now. Speaking of G-senjou, If you haven't gone through Sharin no Kuni, I'd definitely recommend that too.

Moon could've been better. They should have spent 1 more episode on it, but it was still decent considering they had to still tie it into the trainwreck that was season 1. I wasn't a fan of how easily the spoiled the TERRA route revelation
. That was a good example at having a good meta in the plot.

Unfortunately i haven't been watching as much as i could be. I was busy with FFXIV, but a few months ago i decided to take a break so i've been playing alot of other games. Lately i've been grinding alot of Rocket League and various other games (I had just aquired Master of Orion + the other games in that franchise, which is a space-based 4k, much in the same vein as something like Civ5).

S;G 0 is basically the PSVita translation pasted onto the JP PC release. Its actually pretty well done, although there is some TL errors in the official release and one of the vids is unsubbed. On the original TL release of Clannad, Afterstory was an edited Machine Translation, as far as i know, so it did take a pretty big hit. But yeah, for S;G 0, just don't go into it with expectations that it'll be as good as the original. Its good, but there are a few more flaws in it. I'd say more, but i'd rather let you read it and make up your own mind. However, I do feel like as long as they dedicate the requisite amount of effort into the animation, It could be on par with the original. I still haven't 100% Dracu Riot. I haven't finished Loli
route, Miu, or the pure girl (forgot her name). I did like the Lewd Russian's route, and the Trap's route, while shorter, was pretty sweet. Tfw i'm stalled on my Clannad Playthrough. I only needed to read Nagisa's and Afterstory.

Rewrite Moon/Terra has been handled well. It could still be better, but compared to the trainwreck of season 1, This is actually at a level where i can call it "good". I think i gave season 1 a 4, I'll probably give season 2 a 7. Youjo Senki has also been a show i was expecting to be complete shit, like 4-5/10 tier, but turns out its probably my favorite show of the season. I guess i was in the mood for edgy imperial war shenianigans. I still have to watch Kono Suba S2, but i was waiting for it to finish though.

Nah its alright. I'll do it again. If you want my general thoughts though, I'd say that it was interesting, the flow a times was a bit odd (imo) but never unreadable and that I had a few minor gripes that I can't remember right now.

Have you tried r/destructivereaders?
SodiumChloride Feb 12, 4:20 AM
I think I've found the problem. Now that I recall the week I sent it to you, I remember that the internet was piss poor (fluctuating speeds. Frequently turning off and on). And so it's possible that although I thought I sent it, it didn't actually get sent.

Sorry. Looks like it's a problem from my end and I should have checked again. I'll have to draft a new one from scratch and while I can start now, I won't be able to finish until March (exams by the end of this month and into the next). Sorry again.

But have you done any revision of the work? To try and improve the flow or something like that?
SodiumChloride Feb 7, 11:39 AM
No. I definitely did it. I rescheduled the last evening before I left particularly because I wanted to get it done. That's why I was surprised when I saw that I hadn't received a reply about it even since then. If I got slammed by work, I'd tell you.

Weird. I'm sure I uploaded it. Did I make a mistake?

I really hope I didn't...

I'll check again from my end.
SodiumChloride Feb 5, 12:28 PM
Don't you remember? I said I'd send it before I went to school.

I sent it by email in word format. Didn't you get it?


That's your email isn't it? It was on the slack invite.
SodiumChloride Feb 4, 12:33 PM
Yo. It's been a while.

What did you think of the review I sent you? I hope I didn't come off as too harsh.
SodiumChloride Jan 3, 11:20 AM
I plan to make the story full of weirdos and hardly any normal people. Not anime/manga character tropes/archetypes though. They're boring most of the time.

Wow 40k. That's almost a full length novel. It's reasonably less than the cutoff mark for fantasy/sci-fi stories so if you're gonna get it printed, you've got that going for you (less pages mean that publishers are more willing).

Meanwhile I'm stuck here at over 20k even though I haven't reached the halfway mark. I wonder just how much cutting I'll have to do once I'm done.

I'm still in the middle of reading. Do you want a step-by-step breakdown or just general thoughts and stuff? The former will take time and if I don't finish while I'm at home (which is until Sunday), I'm not sure when I can. I should(read:60% chance) be able to finish at home though. If it's general thoughts then I'll be done before then.

5 to 6 full length books.

1st being the intro to the world and stuff.
2nd having Erik take over as the protagonist.
3rd having Gideon's back story
4th just being another story but with certain plot escalations
5th being where I kill almost everybody off (the deaths probably start from the end of the fourth).

Writing is hard and the characters need to pay for how much trouble I go through in keeping them alive. Therefore I've decided that nobody must live through the end of the books. They must all die. Mwahahahahahaha.

Also, finishing with an ordinary happy ending seems boring. I'll just have to make the deaths as unedgy as possible while still retaining the impact. Easier said than done though.

I'm thinking of giving the books away for free on Kindle once (no ifs in this case. I'll finish even if it takes years) I'm done. I wasn't really writing for money. If by some weird chance they do great, I'll probably publish though. What about you?
SodiumChloride Dec 31, 2016 11:47 AM
None at all sadly. No progress on this front.

Sweet. Gimme and I'll read anytime (that is, before January 8. Anything after that is dubious).

How many volumes do you plan to have?
