Oh fuck that. If you want an easy way around YouTube's copyright BS, replace "tube" in the URL with "pak", so the URL would look something like this: https://www.youpak.com/watch?v=OVoseNljKr4 - It will redirect you to a mirror site, eachvideo. Works with every video I've ever tried it on. Also, unlike most other proxy sites, it's actually fast. But yeah, Mors Principium Est is a pretty sweet Melodeath band from Finland.

Deus Vult.

They're great as the anime answer to The Onion. Maybe one day I'll start with Gundam. Been meaning to watch G Gundam actually.

LOL to all of that. I sense some serious grievances with the former land of imperialism. Honestly, just go burn everything down. I heard, starting from scratch helps...

Fune wo Amu is great. It's probably my favorite of the season thus far. Try it out.

Also, when are we going to talk again? It's been so looooooooong.

> no idea

don't lie. You're white, fairly conservative [you like guns, and hate refugees aka non white ppl], and wear masks so you're automatically a part of the not-so-secret society of the superior whites. I mean, historically, you definitely have an advantage here.

LOL The French? Their idea of sanitizing threat is by banning Hijabs, let's be real. No surprise there.

Anyways, on to more important things, what is good this season (could possibly be a joke question)?

your comments never fail to baffle/intrigue/amuse me. idk how you do it. maybe you should get into radio hosting. i would pay to listen to your rants/monologues. would be very interesting. and PLS america isn't that bad... just a slight outbreak in wild clowns.... i'm sure nothing is in the water making us all go crazy. we're all good.

Gundam reminds of JoJo in some ways. There's the main JoJo, the Bro-Jo (otherwise known as the Zeppeli), the rival (the Char counterpart), the (sadly, but not always the case) annoying girl, the big bad (Dio, Kira, Pucci, Valentine, etc.), etc. But out of all the characters I listed, Noa is definitely the one I pertain to the most. There were many instances where I would get into a fight with someone they started or told an annoying person to shut up, much like How Noa slapped some sense into Amuro. I can't seem to take Seed seriously, though. I like the concept of friendship between the characters and I wish I could find something like that where there weren't large amounts of possible yaoi/uke and seme/shounen ai vibes between the characters, but I can't seem to take the show seriously. It's not just the stock footage that bothers me, but the awkwardness with the transitions between scenes. A few examples would be (possibly) Murrue's body and her giant bouncing boobs and Lacus' top falling down a bit while she is playing with Haro and I'm like:

http://i1.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/000/427/123/d71.jpg

It's really awkward.

Also, the Matrix Path of Neo was played on the PC, which is why the ragdolls go hectic after they die compared to the console versions.

But as for the friendship theme, I usually want to find a lot of dark and mature themes that shows take seriously, rather than B.S. their way through. Stuff like relationships, human nature, depression, beauty, sadness, loneliness, guilt, suffering, pain, mental illness(es), survival, war, science, philosophy, etc. are things that I tend to like and very few anime and manga have that sort of thing.

Why do you like the mecha series so much, despite the fact that it was the majority of most anime between the mid 70s to the early to late 00s? I'm not judging you for liking it, I'm just wondering why you like it so much? I'm not too big on mechs, but I prefer realism over badassery, much like Silent Hill over Resident Evil in a way. What I mean is that Silent Hill focuses on normal people with issues just like everyone else (up until 4, though Shattered Memories was somewhat of a redeemer to the franchise) whereas Resident Evil is all about being a cash cow and following B-movie clichés just for the sake of profit. So, in a way, I like anime and manga that focuses on people and what they go through in life, rather than toughing it out for the sake of the plot.

And let's not forget those so-called trolls that proclaim that Cory in the House is anime, or that with the combined forces of Johnny Test, Bee Movie, Shrek, and Cory himself you get a show based on that.

I can't seem to imagine a realistic WWII anime because nobody would seem to get it right, especially with that new one with the magic girl as a power source for a machine or something idk.

Yeah:

I was also looking up some Gundam characters and I can't help but relate to a lot of the old ones like Amuro Ray, Bright Noa, and Setsuna F. Seiei. I know the latter is somewhat recent, but the former two I relate to a lot. I tend to be under a lot of stress and distance myself from others and have excessively high standards and expectations of other people. People say I have a "dark presence", which is why people don't want to talk to me because they think I'm mean and scary.

And I can't help but say this but this may be a bit cringe worthy. Apparently, there is a series called Five Star Stories and the new manga looks like it took some notes from Jehuty of Zone of the Enders fame. The reason why I say cringe is because...well, this:

The art style reminds me of the old Arslan Senki anime adaptation based on the Yoshitaka Amano art book covers. But then again, I like unique art, but whenever I say that's a man, I think about this:

They made an anime for Starship Troopers btw. I guess anything that made an impact in today's society would be rated highly, just as how Slam Dunk motivated Japan to play more basketball. I can't say much about Gintama. I'm more of an action/drama person so chances are I won't get into it. Also, what's with those old threads referring to you? I mean, look at one of the posts the user made:

Also, you should check out Chavez's profile. He seems to have some good LOGH fanart.

Perhaps I should get more books based on politics, religion and science. By saying redpilled, do you mean that the users are extremely pragmatic to a fault?

http://i0.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/001/033/691/a2b.png

I see why. Though how come whenever I come across manga rating websites, Historical, sci-fi, and psychological stuff like Berserk, BOTI, Vagabond, Punpun, YKK, and Rurouni Kenshin come out on top? Is it because of their literary themes?
