Hi Ringo! So how are you doing this summer?

I'm actually kind of liking this season. I also got a lot of Tenchi OVAs to keep up with. RIP to Yuko Mizutani by the way.
Kurt_Irving Jun 28, 4:52 PM
With that said, I've been catching up with Kurogane no Linebarrel, the manga that is.

I intend on finishing it this year.

By the way, I re-watched Twilight Venom in a flash and I miss Bee Train so much right now.

I remember re-watching Dot Hack Sign last May. Not just because 2021 anime sucked, but also because of me being very understanding of the storyline. Also because I've had fond memories of the IMOQ games.

Yeah! Bee Train anime each have a charm that you can't find in today's anime. They cared about quality while the current anime industry only cares about cashing in on the same product.

It's like the FPS or COD bandwagon all over again.
Kurt_Irving May 25, 9:34 PM
Anyway Ringo! How are you doing this May?

I've been re-watching Ghost in the Shell and now I'm at 2nd Gig. I felt like watching sci-fi action anime so that's why. Takes me back to the days when I watched anime on TV.

I was more excited to watch Second Gig on late night TV than Inuyasha one time. Two thumbs up for Yoko Kanno, that is, for doing cyberpunk music. Even Samurai Champloo and S-Cry-Ed got me hyped for late night TV than Inuyasha.

Point is that Cowboy Bebop has a lot of famous people in the cast.

Too bad that today's anime don't have an overall talented cast or crew. Today's anime basically have too many second-rate actors, singers and music composers that no one has ever heard of.

It must be hard to find J-Pop acts comparable to Maaya Sakamoto, Megumi Hayashibara or Rie Tanaka these days.

By the way, I think that Rie Tanaka is the best Morrigan Aesland after Yayoi Fujimoto passed away. Would be great if the Darkstalkers franchise could go on. That's still up to Capcom though.
Kurt_Irving Mar 24, 7:13 PM
Hey Ringo! Did you know that Yasuhiro Nightow is having a birthday soon? So will Megumi Hayashibara and Maaya Sakamoto.

Sometimes I watch Cowboy Bebop in Japanese for the two ladies mentioned above.

Of course everyone knows Maaya Sakamoto for her roles in FF7 and other video games. Her Natsume voice was really cute by the way.

One of the reasons I love Gungrave games is because they remind me of Trigun. I like how Brandon Heat and his weaponized coffin were modeled after Nicholas D. Wolfwood. Of course, and the weapon he entrusted to Vash also.

I agree, they are a scam and good riddance to Funimation after being swallowed whole.

Another thing that I hate about Sony is Aniplex. Instead of giving people Blu-ray anime at a fair and economical price, they rip people off. They ripped off customers during the VHS era too.

So yeah! streaming services and Aniplex are the reason why people prefer watching anime on AnimeKisa, 9anime or via torrents. 9anime was the site I used to watch Vision of Escaflowne and the awesome Arc The Lad last year. Can't wait to recommend those two free anime watching sites to my oldest Libra friend on DeviantArt.

By the way, I look forward to more news about Gungrave GORE. I love the first two games of the franchise. I was thirteen years old when I saw the first Gungrave in the gaming aisle of Sears. Overdose was the epitome of underrated and I didn't get to play it till early adulthood.

Oh yeah! I completed ZOE HD and I loved blasting bad guys in Mars with my mech. That train chase mission was intense and so was this all-out war in said planet. ZOE 1 and 2 are definitely my all-time favorite sci-fi action games besides Breakdown. Can't wait to play Fight For Cybertron next.
Kurt_Irving Mar 13, 7:53 PM
Anyway Ringo, Happy Birthday!
Kurt_Irving Mar 4, 12:27 AM
By the way, a friend of mine will be 32 on the 14th of March. So her birthday is a day after yours and she's also a gamer, just not casual or anything.

89 hours? That close to the time that took me to complete Wild Arms: Alter Code f. Too bad my PS2 doesn't read half the games that I love anymore. Of course, because Sony is a cheap tech corporation.

I also care less about the broken Crunchyroll replacing Funimation and I prefer watching anime on AnimeKisa which has 80s anime. Sony doesn't even care about anime at all.
Kurt_Irving Feb 28, 8:44 PM
Anyway Ringo! You're birthday is coming on early March, right? By the way, my brother got me Zone of the Enders HD.

I also had the most delicious beef, potato, squash and corn soup ever.

Other than that, I still can't wait for future Macross movies to come to theaters. Even though all the theaters are very far away from my house. Wish I could have watched the CG Lupin movie.

Interesting to hear! Well I do like anime so I'll probably enjoy CS then. It's been good so far (although a bit slow at times) and I definitely enjoy the fact it's a singular long running story.

And I guess I forgot to ask this even though it was the impetus - what are your thoughts on Mawaru Penguindrum nearly 11 years later? I was thinking it was a bit over ambitious near the end, but the ending itself was very cathartic and satisfying to me. Very solid overall.
Kakkoi-Kun Feb 22, 10:16 PM

Just finished Mawaru Penguindrum and was going through the forum post of the last episode. Decided to check if people who posted in that were still using MAL and happened upon your page. Given your profile message - a quick glance led me to a lot of questions in my head, but I guess I'll ask two:

For someone who has played through all the Kiseki/Trails games up until partway through CS1 - how does the CS arc compare to the previous entries?

And I see that you've favorited OMK - have you read Chikan Otoko/Molester Man? Different sources for the story, but the artist is the same and I think they're both very interesting.

I can't remember the last time I saw Canada get publicly announced like that on the news. I also knew that there was something screwy going with the Parliament and stuff. One thing for certain is that Canada is even more famous now.

Anyway, I'd like to try Elden Ring too and I'd also like to see how mentally challenging it is compared to Zoids Assault. Not sure if you played Intelligent Qube, but I thought that it was the most mentally challenging game of its time.

On the other hand, I'll be re-watching old favorite anime for kitchen duty. Especially Cowboy Bebop, Kikaider and Big O. Then I thought about re-watching Mezzo Forte while washing dishes too since I miss Bee Train.

I have yet to play Monster Rancher on the PS1, but I watched the TMS anime because I saw it on FOX Kids along with Digimon and Power Rangers, two franchises 90s kids know of. Dinozone is niche, but everybody knows Transformers, Yuusha, Beast Wars, etc. Never saw Power Stone ever, but I do remember the 1994 Spider-Man series.

Speaking of TMS, I didn't watch Detective Conan until the dubbed Funimation episodes came out in 2004. Same year that got me into Ghost in the Shell (A Capricorn chick that I know loves that anime and is a huge fan of Mary Elizabeth McGlynn).

With that said, good night.
Kurt_Irving Feb 18, 6:50 PM
So anyway Ringo! I heard some things about Canada on the news and I hope that things will get better soon.

On the other hand, I've been watching Monster Rancher 2 until the new season of Fafner is finished.
Kurt_Irving Jan 2, 11:22 AM
Apart from me winning the difficult Missions 5 and 6 in Zoids Assault, I hope that you had a happy new year.
