The Seikai trilogy is one of the universes I'm most fascinated by and it's actually sad that it's not more well known. As far as anime lore goes, it's probably my second favorite behind Slayers. There's so much depth to it. There's even an entire language created from scratch just to give the Abh more character depth as a race.

As for Last Exile if it's been a while since you watched Ginyoku no Fam then it would be a good chance to re-watch that after getting through the OG series since it is a direct sequel and not a spin-off. It'll help S2 make more sense too even though episode 15.5 was a recap of S1. Also worth noting that the franchise has some of my favorite OP/ED songs. Cloud Age Symphony is so good and I love both of hitomi's EDs for both seasons. Okino's Head in the Clouds (insert for Fam episode 1) is another good one, too. Oddly enough, I didn't really care for Maaya's OP for S2.

Gonna be honest I'm not Tomino's biggest fan lol. Especially after he claimed Hathaway's Flash would be competition for Kimetsu no Yaiba. They're not even in the same league. I'm open to recs but even Gundam has had some busts imo *coughZZcough* so I approach his works with skepticism.

Isn't Esca supposed to be mecha though? Is there some sort of S&S element to it? Also are you talking about the film or the TV series? Or both?

Monogatari has been on my mind for years and I'll get to it eventually. It certainly seems like a sprawling universe but then so is Fate. I just need to find some time to binge it. Maybe when I take my vacation later this month. If I can get through gigantic time sinks like Ranma and Dragonball in a week then I can pull that off.

Hmmm...well if you like spacy stuff, Lost Universe. Also created by Hajime Kanzaka (Slayers) and has some similarities. Mainly names. You should watch Slayers Try (if you can get that far) first though as some of the connections won't be evident otherwise. Or just watch it anyway.

On your PTW, would also recommend Irresponsible Captain Tylor. Both the TV and OVA. Some good comedy here.

Also on your PTW, Crest/Banner of the Stars as well (#5 on my favorites) and probably my favorite space opera. Imo, it has some of the best space battles outside of the Gundam universe, as expected of Sunrise. I also highly recommend Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin. One of the best Gundam entries in the last decade and a must-see for any Char fan. I would watch Char's Counterattack before it though. CC isn't that good imo and will sour the experience if you watch it afterwards.

If you like Swords & Sorcery stuff in general, then back to your PTW we go. Record of Lodoss War is a classic. The TV has one of my favorite OPs ever by Sakamoto Maaya.

Then there's Kimetsu no Yaiba. It's a bit more recent but such a beautiful show. If nothing else, it's ufotable flexing.

Would also call out Golden Kamuy. One of the funniest series I've ever watched. And Last Exile because it's just good. Both on your PTW.

You never really changed your photo ever since you joined this site, huh?

Ooh are you learning Japanese? That's awesome. I really want them to animate Wazamonogatari so bad... I haven't read the novels though, not sure if they are translated in english.

I've gotta catch up on both of those, I really liked hataraku saibou S1.
I should probably update my anime list while i'm on mal.
Regicide Mar 7, 2021 4:13 PM
Fortunately I can't afford matlab, so I've never used it, so i'll take your word for it.
I guess I could try out octave if I was so inclined, but R and python fill that need for me currently.

Recently when I've had an itch for something more low-level though, I've been using Rust for its safety guarantees (and also its stdlib).

I feel like I never get any better at lower level programming though because I'm a ruby programmer at work, so most of my work is pretty high level and around databases (indexes are my mortal enemy).

On a completely different note, have you been watching any anime this season? I've been digging horimiya.

My site is written in markdown, so i'll probably leave the csv and just have pandas do .to_markdown and incorporate it into the build step. I already have my site themed properly so I guess that will be all that I end up needing.

I have to say, as a normal web dev, malloc and friends scare me. I've never had to write C for production so I'm pretty poor at it, even if I do think it's a fair language.

You're a hardware guy right, so that's probably why the C focus?

^^ Can't get much faster than C for big data problems. I know a bit of C, and I have to say I admire how barebones it is yet how you can write a lot of things, like compilers, OSes, network stacks, etc.

I've been working on my "digital garden", basically trying to keep a copy of data of stuff of mine, so I parsed it from xml -> csv -> sqlite, and now I guess I have to write some sort of script to turn my sqlite db into an easy to look at html form. (I guess pandas' .to_html() would suffice, but now that I'm a dev, everything has to be over-engineered).

My hat is off to you sir, for writing C. One hard language to use for sure.

It's hard to believe it's been almost 10 years since I started posting in casual discussion (general discussion?) and we started talking on mal.
Time really flies.

Hey Deserada,

I went online to grab my myanimelist to play around with it using python and noticed you left a comment so I figured I'd say hi too.

even though I'm not active anymore on MAL it's good to see an old face.
Erimda Mar 7, 2021 2:27 PM
hello! and yeah i watched almost all of it except for kizumonogatari and koyomimonogatari. i want another season BADLY!

I still haven't really decided the exact career path I was going for since I wanted to sample some of the courses in my first semester and see what they're teaching. In the one month that I've been studying I haven't really found any of the languages that difficult at all [I've been using C++, Java, JS but python seems to be my favorite so far], of course it's just the very basics from videos like freecodecamp but when you consider my degree will probably take 3 years and in that amount of time I'll still be learning on my own I should have at least enough experience for a junior dev job somewhere.

Either that or I was going to get into the more networking side of things or maybe work with databases. Still not too sure but my goal right now is to just get as much core experience in as many areas as I can and when I find an area that's both sustainable and doable for me then I'll get into the more advanced stuff. Here in Australia it seems portfolios are everything and if you make a bunch of projects in your own time or contribute a lot and can show your skill then you should be good regardless of degree. The degree for me will just be something that'll show employers I have a formal education in the field but that'll be propped up by a good portfolio.

That's good to hear the US still has opportunities, I'm originally from California and I know the IT industry is always booming over there but I was considering moving to Dallas if I did move back since that's nearest to one of my relatives, not too sure on how many jobs are out there though since Texas still sounds pretty rural to me lol
