That's my best bet. By the time the PS5 releases I'm sure the PS4 will be much cheaper so who knows if I'll ever get one. I may end up just getting whatever Microsoft console is next. That's very true and it's been a thing for the last several years sadly. Over the last decade it's been a shift to a heavy focus on online gaming as opposed to a big single player story/campaign. Fortunately there are still a lot of games and companies that focus on single player, but if there isn't multiplayer I'm sure it turns a lot of people away. WWI is certainly overlooked overall in the game industry. Seems there are way more games that focus on WWII or just straight up fictional war. I haven't gotten very far in the campaign on BF1 but as long as it's immersive and has a WWI feel to it Im sure I'll like it. Haha I'm sure BF5 will be heavily criticized then. Most people don't want real world political bs in their games, they just want to play them. Yeah even if Nintendo ditches the hardware aspect they will still make crazy amounts of money licensing out titles like that. I'm not sure how I would feel about a Mario or Kirby game on Xbox though. I believe they (and don't quote me on who) say that Yiddish is "a poor mans German" or something like that. While I'm not Jewish I'm lead to believe that Yiddish and German are somewhat similar. "Ikh pruv zich zu lernen Yiddish" means I am trying to learn Yiddish. The word Ikh is Ich in German, zu is zu in German, and lernen is lernen in German. A bit confusing but a fair amount of the words mean the same thing but may be spelt slightly different. Yeah it's definitely intriguing to see how most languages borrow from one another and how that's made languages the way they are today. It's ironic that people want to come here with all of the issues we face, but the grass is always greener on the other side so I guess we would have to be a literal shithole for people to not want to come here. At this rate I think it's most important to at least balance this country's budget. Breaking even on spending and GDP is nearly impossible but seeing the national debt continuously rise is sickening. If we weren't a necessity in the global economy we would be flatlined already. Just makes me think how long it'll be until that time comes where America is seen is non beneficial and we piss the wrong people off. Haha thank you for putting that mental image into my brain. I guess women have that advantage then that their genitals aren't being cooked by their phones. For sure, and hey the information is always there in the event that you want to someday.

Oh yeah, as long as you enjoy a game it doesn't matter if you're good at it or not. I like to boost specific units one at a time as much as possible then move to the next, but that might not be the best strategy for some games. I think the only city builder I've played recently is Cities: Skylines but I gave up because it became too confusing. Something with running a sewage system and linking them and the power distribution just got me flustered. There was a lackluster tutorial so I just grew impatient with it and gave up. It seemed pretty fun from what I saw but I'm just bad at it I suppose. My friend's big into C&C so that's why I recommended it, hopefully you'll like Supreme Commander.

Seems like waiting may be the best option then. I've got a hefty list on my black friday/cyber monday purchases so if it'll be more economically sound to wait until next year then I probably will. It also sounds like I should be looking out for AMD products in the next few months from what you've said. I'll keep my eyes out in the coming weeks for deals though. I'm sure I could find something decent but it's not a must buy now purchase.

Absolutely. I may jump genre's a bit and get a more full experience since I haven't watched much of anything in quite some time. haha very true, it's a very pungent dish. I hope their moms packed them lunch as I'm sure it'll be a field day lmao.

Very true, and they could be used during crimes since you can only see the person's eyes. At face value yeah NYC is pretty crappy. I think since I've been there so many times I've become numbed to the shitty aspects other than the bad drivers. I'm sure most cities are generally decent though, unless you live in Detroit or maybe Chicago.

Yeah, I kinda do. And if you don't, they'll invite you over, lol. Well, I use Jumpshare (which is the same site cardmakers use to host the cards they name for us), and the max space is 2 GB unless you give em money. I do know the feeling of wanting to have your own club, though. I've made one for me and Mnanoha. We're just practicing our horrible skills in hopes of being able to become a good CM someday.

No way...I've never used makeup before, never worn a skirt before, and prefer to tie up my hair in a ponytail. :o

Nope, I mean students' work. Assignments. Homework. Ugh. See, this is why I didn't join the National Honor Society or whatever. I'm not nice enough to do work without expecting things in return. I also like Uzamaid and Beelzebub-jou. I haven't seen Hinomaruzumou, Tsurune or Gridman, since I'm trying to reduce the amount I'm watching.

I didn't really do much to the pic, but thanks...not really. I want to make a new layout, but I don't want to put up another amateur looking one. I'm planning on making a BBCode layout this time. :)

Sony gets a thumbs down from me. Until they fix some of their services I probably won't consider getting a PS4 unless I can't wait for a specific exclusive but that's doubtful. Absolutely and I hate that. Even the shooters that do still have campaigns they usually suck. Battlefield 1 is free with Xbox Live Gold this month and I started the campaign and I'm hopeful because it looks like there's a lot of levels and different people you play as during different battles from WW1. The multiplayer is pretty decent too, I was surprised. It's unfortunate that Nintendo as a company are how they are nowadays. Millions of people worldwide recognize Nintendo and many have nostalgic memories from their childhoods. The generation growing up now will not feel that. They will probably grow bored of Nintendo and that will be their failure. I give them 15 more years max as a major competitor in the gaming industry. I think that's the one part of my brain that excels at things like Language. German is fairly difficult at first but once you have the basics it's easier to branch off to more difficult things like past and future tense. I'd say I have the vocabulary of a German middle schooler, which doesn't sound very impressive but I only had 4 years of classes. It's something that I found/find quite fun but as life goes on you find yourself with less time to do all of the things you want to do. I'd love to also learn Dutch and Yiddish, as they're fairly similar to German. The US is so far behind because of exactly that. So much overspending on things that aren't 100% necessary all while racking up so much debt that it'll never be paid off. Yeah it's best to have the phone on speaker so the transmission of any radiation is minimal. It'll be interesting to see how wireless providers deal with 5G regarding that. Thank you for the link, I've bookmarked it. NordVPN I'm familiar with as I believe a few youtubers have spoken of it saying that it's reliable.

I love a good single player campaign. I'm pretty crappy at strategy games but I do like tower defense games, which I guess use some strategy. That's fair enough because multiplayer games almost always come with toxic elements like kids using unintelligible swears and threats if violence. That's why I never use a mic. I'm not super kept up on strategy games, but since you like them and are having a hard time finding one to enjoy, I know of a couple. Command & Conquer I'm sure you've heard of, and Supreme Commander which from my memory uses more mecha elements.

Absolutely. With Cyber Monday coming up I may be able to find at least a good chunk of a setup for cheaper than any other time of year. I'm somewhat familiar with Intel graphics chips. The i5 is in most laptops nowadays right? Yeah he'll be my overseer when I go to buy parts just to make sure I get the best deal for my money.

It was certainly enjoyable. I've been busy as hell the last week so I haven't been able to keep up, but I'm thinking that'll change during this week. Ah I love the smell XP Coming home to a pot of chili that's been cooking all day is the best! It'll only be a matter of time until another show comes out then people will be coming out of the woodwork again.

That's very true. Masks have their purpose and are helpful, but that's no reason to overuse them for unnecessary reasons. It depends I guess. In terms of overall cleanliness NYC isn't the best. They've done a lot over the years to make that better though. You can see videos of NYC in the 80's and it was awful compared to now. The trains and subways do still need a lot of work though. The tunnels are like 100+ years old and the company that runs public transit in the NYC metro area are a bunch of greedy pricks, so I don't think that they'll be much nicer moving forward. Despite those things I still think NYC is a pretty cool place. Just like any other city there are shitty parts and nice parts just depends on the area. Only thing that'll never change is the fact that 90% of the people that live there are assholes, but I'd probably be one too if I had to live there.

Any cards that have characters I like, I guess. Oh yeah, there's a bunch of new cards. But since I'm limiting the amount of clubs I'm requesting from, I'm not joining any club that don't have the really good GFX makers. I'm denying all invites unless the cards are good. Also, a lot of the super good cardmakers have stopped making cards for the most popular card club, and they've made their own clubs, which I'm in.

Yeah, that's not happening. It's like my goal to not talk to anyone. I haven't even spoken a single word at school today.

I haven't been watching anime lately, which is increasing my motivation to watch anime. I've been doing work for school for the past few days. It sucks. Seishun Buta is pretty good, tbh. But my favorites are still Goblin Slayer and Tensei Shittara Slime Datta Ken.

People around me don't really get sick, and that's my family.
Cleaye Oct 25, 10:17 PM
I guess hahahahaah. It kind of makes sort of sense lol.

Okay okay, whatever floats your boat senpai hahahaha. Hmmm yess, they make me sleep better <3 Plus, I don't have any room to place them anywhere else ;v; Yukane is a chain here that sells dakgalbi! It's a big chain and easy to find! Omg, that's one of my favorite anime. It was so unique and amazingg. I remember the season I watched it in. Oh gosh, happy days. I'm usually playing singles, but from time to time I do double matches as well. But it's hard since I'd like my partner to be around the same level as I am, and in the club there are so many different people with different skills. :O NO WAYYY 1800? That's insaneee wth. You better be assigned to a very luxurious penthouse then. With a private pool. And a private tennis court. Yesss! I wasn't interested in karate that much at all when I started. I just tagged along with a friend to watch. But then the karate teacher asked me to join. And I was like okayy, it's not so bad. And from then on I stuck with it! I'm really grateful for the discipline it has taught me and control of my body as well. I'd like to try so many other different martial arts. Especially shaolin kung fu looks stunning. Jujitsu is so useful! I love jujitsu and it's pretty similar to karate in some ways. Muay Thai is just brute. It's not so much graceful, but very practical. Hmmm, the things is, I want to try a lot. But I simply do too much already. I guess I don't prioritize it enough to give up the other sports. :( I have never heard of eskrima, but generally, I don't like the fighting style in action movies. I'll check it out! Maaaaybe when I come across it.. I'll try for you. I have a hundred different ways I prefer my chicken and waffles is definitely not one of them! But I need to try it first before I can confirm it. Ohh, maybe American people don't like Dutch coffee hahahahaha. Okaay I will check it out! Thanks for the link! I know absolutely shit about sports teams or matched that recently happened lol. I love sports, but most time I don't talk about it! I want to pick up Japanese for sure! It such a fun language to learn. Besides that, I know a little bit of Chinese. Hmmm... Korean words are sometimes really hard to pronounce. So hard to pronounce that they short shorten the word, or just skip some parts of it. I wouldn't say choking, but it definitely isn't the easiest language to speak. Especially since there are real subtle difference in the things you say. Like, last time in a restaurant I was in a restaurant, trying to ask for chopsticks. Instead I said, "kick the penis". :'( I heard a lot about Goblin Slayer hahahaha. Do you like to watch it? Yeaah, there are also Malaysian people whom I befriended with here in Korea, and their English is really good!
ChissyCheeze Oct 21, 6:05 PM
For sure, but to be fair I haven't kept up a lot with Sony exclusives since PS2 so there's a bunch of games I don't even know about. I do enjoy a lot of shooters, or at least games with that element. RPGs, Shooters, racing, and even some sports games but that's mainly football. I could see Nintendo dropping the home console market and after the WiiU I'm surprised they didn't. I enjoyed Gamecube quite a lot and even the Wii when it came out, but most of Nintendo's games have been drug out for a long time. You can't have a Nintendo console without 10+ Mario related games. Another issue with the Switch (at least in my friends case) is that a lot of games are too easy and pander to young kids. He 100% the newest Kirby game in like 8 hours and 100% the new Mario Party within the week he bought it. There's no incentive to play half the games once you beat them which turns me away from the console even more. I'm hoping that the new Smash Bros and Animal Crossing are both amazing because those are the ones I've been excited for. A big reason why I wanted to learn Japanese was so I could pick up on more words and sentences while watching anime, but the main reason was for the enjoyment of learning a new language, especially one so difficult. I took 4 years of German way back in high school and still use it to this day. It's especially fun when you meet another person that speaks it and you can have a conversation or just say random words around other people and they don't understand haha. That's odd, maybe you could use a PC HD on an Xbox. It would just have to have a USB connector. It wouldn't look as good per se, but essentially I could get a 2TB drive for half as much as an external. Yeah fiber optics and soon 5G for mobile devices. I think 5G goes public sometime early next year. People will have to buy new phones compatible with 5G if they want it but will become standard within a few years where available. Bing and Google are fairly synonymous with each other, I just personally think that Bing has a better format when it comes to browsing articles and such. Yeah it's definitely a fair trade off in the long run. You can get VPNs for free, but if you want more security features a paid subscription is your best bet. Especially if you're doing big time pirating and don't want to set off any alarms to your ISP.

Those types of people are pretty lucky then. That's how I am with gaming for the most part. A game has to be pretty damn bad for me to not enjoy it. That coupled with researching a game before I play it. Saves me the time and disappointment when I feel the need to finish a game that I don't like.

Well it was something that we knew we had to face, and we were both willing to try and see where it took us. It was definitely difficult, and still even is now. Over time it's gotten easier though, and when either of us leaves we usually talk about the next time we're going to see each other or things going on for us during the week. Communication is also very important and try our best to talk on the phone here and there despite having pretty different schdules.

Definitely a mid-tower then. Waiting until next year is what I'm going to have to do since I have a lot of purchases to make from now until I'm moved out, on top of other existing expenses. It'll be nice once I'm able to sit down and buy all of the parts. My friend that I'm moving in with built his last 2 computers himself, so I'll have plenty of help in that regard when the time comes.

I've heard that a lot with series' manga being better than the anime. Or even VNs being better than both. So in Mahou Shoujo, the girls bullied Aya because she didn't thank them for sticking up for her? You're absolutely right on how ridiculous that was. The show seems to be progressing pretty well despite that. It's a pretty weak argument for torturing someone but that's anime for ya. Chili is a godsend, and with the cold weather now is the best time of year to enjoy it. Jesus christ hahaha, the absurdity. People want to correlate an animated show to 'real life issues'. It just shows how delusional they are and that they'll use anything they can to scream their opinion. That response is absolutely hilarious.

Oh man that's awful. I remember when I was in Japan/Okinawa and seeing a lot of people with those masks on and even more at the airport. That's something that I never see here but it makes sense to me. People are pretty nasty and shit spreads like California wildfires because of it. I go to NYC a lot for work and I'm surprised I don't get sick more often.

Although there aren't many cardmakers that are fans of Gintama, I really like it when they make Gintama cards. They also make a lot of idol cards, and I guess there are a decent amount of Umi cards. I don't get spammed too much, and it's probably because I joined all of them before they could invite me. I've only gotten around 5 or so ever since I started collecting cards.

Nope. And no one talks to me on the bus either, so I really don't talk at all. Really? I like threads where you post because I usually don't agree with any of the options, lol. Okay, then.

I did mention that anime's more of an obligation now. I feel like I'm watching it more to challenge myself and to add more anime to my list rather than enjoying it. I still come across anime that I enjoy, though. It's gotten worse, you could say, since high schools requires you to do more homework and I have other things, such as making cards, that I'd like to do. I don't particularly like CGDCT anime, either, but I just have a thing for rom-coms.

Oh...that sucks...I don't get sick easily, but I do get runny noses easily. It's a result of waking up in the freezing mornings to get ready for school, so it's quite a normal occurrence, but still annoying...
ChissyCheeze Oct 15, 6:18 PM
PlayStation does have a service called PlayStation Now, where I believe there are older games but it's cloud-based so you have to stream the games, which causes graphical issues due to any network lag. In my opinion I think it's stupid but I'm sure some people enjoy it. Yeah definitely Xbox over PS. I grew up with PS but the 360 really caught my attention and I never looked back. Switch is alright, but I see it more as a party console than a regular console. The only games that are really fun are the new Mario Party and the Jackbox collection, which is a few random games that you use your phone for. I can read a few basic words if they're in Hiragana, but not much. I studied the alphabet for a little while but then gave up because it's a huge time investment that I just don't have the time of day for. Hopefully in the future I can pick it back up. With the JPN PS1 games I have, mainly regarding the Megaman games, I know what to do I just won't know everything that's being said. It's more so just to fill that nostalgia from when I was young. I'm surprised you don't care for Ubisoft. I'll admit that pretty much all of their games are DLC heavy but franchises like Far Cry, Watch Dogs, and Trials are all pretty good in my opinion. I don't care for Assassin's Creed but I think that's their biggest game franchise. Yeah if new controllers were like $45 instead of $60, I'd probably have a 2nd one by now. Yeah even my 1TB external was $80, and nowadays you can find 2TB for $100. If I'm not mistaken Japan actually has the most reliable and fastest internet speeds over any other country. I would love to see how quickly 1GB would take download over there. Oh, I meant that me not being able to use wifi at my current home sucks, improper grammar on my part there, sorry about that. Yeah it's a bit annoying, but at least I'm able to check out articles from different topics with ease, Bing has their setup really nice. KAT was/is a popular torrent site just like Pirate Bay, but was shutdown (https://money.cnn.com/2016/07/21/technology/kickass-torrent/index.html). I believe the site is back up and running now, but after something like that I don't care to use it anymore.

Hahaha, I love the sarcasm. It's valid though as it seems like quite a few people blindly ask questions on the internet without looking for more than 10 seconds. That's fair enough, I feel like the same could be said for others that have long anime watching careers.

Well our whole relationship was built on not being able to see each other all the time, so I feel a bit lucky for it to have gotten this far. We met when she was doing an externship (about 45mins from me) and things hit off really well so we made the effort to see each other as much as we could that first summer.

I've been away from PC gaming for a long time, but I do like games like Diablo and Counter-Strike. Not super picky with graphics, but I would like a graphics card that would hold up for at least a few years. I think a mid-tower would be my best bet. Would water cooling by any more efficient regarding tower storage? Yeah the A/V editing would mostly be song editing and short video editing. I'd also like to become more proficient at photo editing and Photoshop itself so that's another thing I would love to do once I get a computer.

It's good! While I won't say that it's super awesome I am definitely enjoying it. I need to pick up on it since I was out since Friday. There was a chili cookoff at the college yesterday and it was awesome. Two that I really enjoyed were this curry beef one, and another one made with stout beer. It gave it a nice bold flavor without the alcohol taste. I saw a post on Facebook about that Goblin Slayer show and people were debating over that first episode. Some were complaining and a few people were replying telling them to get over it and made comparisons to other anime with gruesome scenes. I find it fair that people dropped it, obviously content like that isn't for everyone. But that goes with anything, graphic or not.

No problem, I hope things have cleared up and that you feel better now :)

I got into cards from MAL AD forums. There was this thread that had thousands of posts...the Anime Watching Challenges one. I was curious and found the club that hosted that thread. By coincidence, there was an edition open at the time (it was around Christmas and New Year's). That club rarely has editions, since they're more for doing challenges. After that, I found other card clubs by looking around AWC. Maybe it was the affiliates, and then I clicked on people's profiles to stalk see what clubs they were in and joined all of them.

Yes, irl-wise. I don't mind talking to strangers on the net since most people are strangers. Besides, on the forums, I don't think my posts are directed at anyone in particular, maybe the OP, but it's like doing a survey or a poll, and I like doing these kinds of things. Am not!

I always try watching less and less each season, but it isn't working. Sometimes, the anime with fewer amounts of people watching tend to be better. For example, I'm liking Beelzebub-jou this season, although it only has 11k members at the moment.

No, I reply late myself, too, so it's not a problem. I just hope you're feeling better~ :3

"It feels weird having a guy telling me he's my "first one". Stahp giving me strange ideas! >.<"

Cleaye Oct 10, 9:23 PM
Ohh, I don't think it will be anything special? Only graduation ceremony for the people who graduated lol. So I learned yesterday from my friend that's called cuffing season hahahaha. The more you know xD

Yeah actually my bed is so stuffed with plushies. I don't want to start talking about how much I spend in the arcade. Favorite foods is dakgalbi! It's just so simple and so good. Since I've joined the pingpong club at school I haven't been working out that much lately anymore. It's just pretty hard keeping up with the workouts when you also want to socialize with everyone here. Rent is soooo much... I think about 550 dollars a month. Yeah Tae Kown Do involves a lot of kicks indeed. Yeah I've practices karate since I was a kid! Who the fuck mixes gravy and fruits togetherr omg hahahahaha. Please keep that away from me. Just like chicken waffles oml. Can't imagine liking that. Woah that's interesting. A lot of stores have a Dutch coffee option here. I tried and it was surprisingly.. Dutch hahahah. But it's also more expensive. I will definitely try that out! Sounds like fun finger food :) Ah, that's some new information for me. I'll have to remember when I'm roadtripping America xD It's okayy! Why would you want to love sports?? xD Since learning two languages at the same time is reaaaally confusing. I still like the sound of Japanese more. Korean sounded so ugly to me at first, but now I kinda like it. I think I like Japanese more because it's way easier to pronounce. Yeaaah learned those in a day as well hahahha. Okaayy I will check it out! Thanks! You know.. I was always surprised why your English was so good.. HAHAHAHA. Now it makes sense.
ChissyCheeze Oct 3, 1:01 PM
Also apologies on that first sentence. I meant that you can purchase both PS1 and PS2 games on the PS4, but not play PS3 games. I have to copy and paste my messages from Mal Client because my text bubble blocks me from seeing the previous messages once a message gets to a certain point, so I must've screwed up in my original message
ChissyCheeze Oct 3, 12:56 PM
I'm not sure if they were compatible with all previous systems but I do know on the PS store you can buy certain PS1 & can't play PS3 games on PS4 and that's one of the things that seperates it from XB1. Backwards compatibility on the One has grown a lot and there are well over 100 Xbox 360 games that can play on current gen and it grows weekly/monthly. I'm holding off on getting a Switch until there are more games and the price drops, or I might just skip out and wait because my girlfriend bought one and if we end up moving in together I don't see a need for 2 of them. Battle Royale is more so a "last man standing" type of game mode so I guess that could be synonymous with free-for-all but it depends on the game I guess. Playstation definitely reigns over Xbox in terms of JRPGS and anime style games. The Xbox isn't popular in Japan compared to Playstation so PS users get a lot more games in that aspect. That's part of the reason I bought a JPN PS1. Mostly for just Ore-no Ryouri, but there are tons of really cool and weird games that never made it to the west. It's also a good way to get games that are way more expensive for the U.S. version than the Japanese version. A prime example would be The Misadventures of Tron Bonne, a spin off of the Megaman Legends series (my favorite trio of PS1 games other than Spyro). The US copy of Tron Bonne goes for well over $250 if you want the original case and inserts, as opposed to $20 for the Japanese version. I've played a few of the Star Wars games but my favorite would have to be the original Battlefronts for PS2. I haven't tried any of the new ones. Yeah I really dig the Pro controller but they're pricey which is understandable. Yeah Fallout 4 is a big game storage wise. Elder Scrolls online is like 80GB. Fortunately not nearly all games are quite that large. I'd say most are in the 10-25GB range, and 360 games are almost always less than 10GB. Any 3rd party or indie game can range from a few hundred MB to a couple GB. It could be that your ISP meant 12MBs which is megabits per second, which would make sense if your download speed is around 1-1.5Mbs. I actually use my phones hotspot to update and download smaller games which ranges from 25-45MBs, so about 20-40Mbs. My homes wifi has "too many devices" so I've been told so when I want to download full games I do that at a friends or up at my girlfriends college. Sucks, but I just found out yesterday that sometime around January I can move in with my best friend and his girlfriend at a townhouse once the current tenants leave. it's his parents rental too so I don't have to worry about getting screwed over and I'll finally have my own wifi. Microsoft has a rewards program through Bing where you can earn points from searching with Bing and doing daily "quests". With about 5 minutes you can earn around 200-300 points per day and it's 6800 points for a month of game pass. So essentially it's "free", just a very small daily time investment. As a former pirate and active community member of KAT, I can say that torrenting now is different than it was a few years ago when I was actively a part of it. It used to be as simple as checking file extensions (a movie with a .exe file is definitely not a movie, it's always either .mkv .mp4 or .avi) but nowadays there seems to a bigger presence of those types of things but hidden better. Yeah Nintendo has zero tolerance for pirating. Emuparadise and CoolROMS were the sites I used to use, not sure if they are still active but I know Emu had to remove all of their games. I still have a crapload of Nintendo games and their emulators on my laptop but haven't touched them in years.

Haha you're definitely right with that. Half of the time you can tell from the synopsis that an ecchi anime is going to be well, ecchi. It's quite ignorant for people to look past that and then complain. I think that would be intriguing to see how you feel about old favorites if you rewatched them today, especially given the experience you've earned along the way since then. Maybe do a side by side analysis of how you liked it back then compared to now?

Yeah I definitely consider myself fortunate for the relationship I have despite the distance. Many people have long distance relationships like that where they're very far away from each other and I give them props for that. It takes a lot of extra effort to be with someone that you can't always physically be with.

I'll definitely be looking around at computers but won't be able to make a full decision for myself for a while. I do love the portability of a laptop but at the same time a nice home computer would ultimately be a better investment imo. Keeping up with constant and better hardware would be an issue but a mid-range desktop would probably be my best bet. I'd use it mostly for media, a few games that are PC only, and then I could get back into Audio/Video editing. I used to do it for fun a few years back but having an old laptop kind of hindered my options on the type of work I could do.

Oh man I can't wait. There was definitely a lot of sensitive material in that first episode but thought provoking and shocking elements like that can either make or break a show on any medium. I guess it depends on the circumstance and the execution. So far so good though, I'm gonna check out the 2nd episode now though since I just got home from work.

Yeah, that's it. I can never get the motivation to do the work before it needs to be turned in. No, you don't have to remind the mods. They just unban you after the time limit's up. Nope...getting banned is a pain. I wouldn't be able to apply for editions and stuff.

I don't know, I feel like I glare at people a lot. Or maybe I just look like that naturally. I know how you feel about the embarrassing part, but I usually just never look back or stare at them back. One or the other. Most of the time, the bus is gone by the time I reach my front door. In class, I really hate it when people stare at me, so I'll look them in the eyes until they take theirs off mine. Tsundere? But I've only ever gotten kuudere on those dere tests.

I've only ever seen one Chinese drama, you know. Other than the time when I tried looking up Lucky Star in YT and found a subbed version of My Lucky Star ep 1. It was a movie called "Our Times" in English. I really liked it.

Over time, I've also lost the motivation to actually enjoy what I'm watching, and anime is probably more of an obligation now than a hobby. Well, considering that I'm still doing it, I shouldn't be bored with anime. I prefer not to stop in a middle of an episode, and I'll finish the ep, then take a break, and go back to watch the next episode.

I think a lot of people have negative feelings about Akame ga Kill's ending being different from the manga. Funny how we're talking about Akame and this edition was released. The most you'd see from me is anime pics. Wallpapers and avatars, stuff like that.

Some of our teachers are like that, too. The guy next to me had his head on his shoulders on the desk, so the teacher called on him. I meant in the sense that I turn in all my assignments on time. I do procrastinate, but I still get them in. I just delay my work until we have to turn it in tomorrow. For example, if the history teacher assigns us a study guide due in 2 weeks along with mandatory flashcards, I only do the whole thing 2 days within due date. Just thought that maybe the girls online were different from irl girls, and vice versa. 1 day for making accounts. 3 of them. Well, the reason I got caught was so stupid that I don't feel like saying it. I've also been banned from trying to avoid the post limit on forums. 2 times.

Nah, I sit alone if possible. I make it very obvious that you would be stupid if you tried to sit next to me. I don't have anyone I know on the bus, anyways (maybe I'm not looking hard enough). So yeah. People only see where I live in the morning. Because the bus just drops me off at the corner of my street and I walk back. My house isn't exactly in the best place for a bus to pick up. The doors are always on the wrong side. What? Did you...get yourself a stalker? Σ(O_O) I look out the window while singing, and I'm pretty most people can't read lips. Besides, I don't sing any of the popular anime songs. Me, too, I always skip the openings and endings. Partly because I don't wanna waste time I could be watching the actual episode. Sometimes, I do listen to around 8 seconds or until the vocal starts to see if I like it or not.

Yeah, I can and do. We never talk about things like "politics", and I don't get Chinese dramas unless they're subbed because they speak in what I consider "advanced" Chinese. I can only speak in daily life Chinese. For anime, I can pick out words and phrases, but not the stuff in between that connects the words and make them into a sentence.

I'm watching 12 eps per day, along with whatever episode of whatever airing anime that airs that day. I watch around 12-24 during summer vacation. It seems like I'm always messing around on MAL or the internet when I want to watch anime...
