Agreed.
I wouldn't have had it as my profile layout otherwise, it's a really nice picture and it happen to be somewhat compatable with my profile picture so I decided to just put them together.

Thanks mate

Ya, it's a lot of fun. We broke to the round of 16 and advanced to the top 8 before being knocked out by last year's winner. I believe they ended up placing 2nd overall this year, but they were really good; the first speaker in particular I think won best advocate for the whole competition and for the final round. The Ro16 and Ro8 were held at the Federal Claims Court, which is about 50 feet away from the White House.. made for a great experience!

Can definitely sympathize with you there. In another year I'll be working huge hours and trying to find any way to break from the grind lol... Anything in particular that you've been reading? In probably the most stereotypical thing I've ever done in my life I'm currently reading A Civil Trial, which is a solid book about a massive cancer-causing environmental issue outside of Boston. I think it was made into a movie with like Travolta or something, which I will refrain from seeing.

I was trying to find a good fantasy series so I'm currently looking into The Riyria Chronicles by Michael Sullivan. I'll tell ya how it goes :o

That does sound like a good year. Shinsekai yori and Shirobako are two of my absolute favorites as well and probably would've been exactly the first 2 titles for me to recommend to you. SSY I think I actually did in the past, just a near-perfect anime and unfortunately much too underrated and undeservedly lesser-known. It has some flaws, but in terms of pure intensity and world-building it's simply the best, and it's not like any other aspect really suffered for it; as a whole it's just excecuted sooo well.

And Shirobako is a slice-of-life masterpiece, not too much to say there. Incidentally, I see it as a spiritual successor to Hanasaku Iroha, so I'm glad it at least managed to make your prestigious anime list. RIP Ohana though. (Also no Jintai? What did nano.RIPE do to you??)

Recently I've been watching through some of the big-name anime that has been on my PTW since forever like TTGL, Monster, and Code Geass. TTGL I quite liked, and I kind of see why it's one of those anime that anime-lovers love to love, but I think it might be a bit overrated? What do you think about it? Other notable watches were Nichibros, Utawarerumono, Cross Game, and Ansatsu Kyoushitsu. I enjoyed all of them and would be happy to go more in depth about any that you'd like to discuss or are curious about.

Took you long enough, haha. Madoka was basically my first anime so it's always been special to me. But I also rewatched it a couple times before fully appreciating how masterful and "elegant" it was.

Have you had any other notable adventures in animeland recently?

Nice Homus.
I don't remember you being such a huge fan though; what sparked this?
Dustro Mar 18, 7:07 AM
Ow, that's interesting. Thank you for answering.

Hi Josh. I'm not dead! I enjoyed Penguindrum a lot. My friend from work got me to watch it. I watched with her (she was rewatching) and, although she wasn't super into Ikuhara saving anime, she still liked Penguindrum for its entertainment value. I think the penguins and general tone of the show makes it a bit more accessible than maybe something like Utena, which I know some of my friends had trouble with. As I watched with her, that kind of shaped my experience as well and I was happy that she enjoyed it. I liked it a lot too anyways and I think I enjoyed it more than his other works. Well, maybe enjoy is the wrong word. I probably understood it better than his other works just because I knew what to expect after seeing Utena and YKA. :3

I finished FLCL, GITS SAC 2nd Gig, and a few others too. I really liked both of those, namely.

What did you think about this season? Have you kept up with Rakugo, LWA, Maid Dragon, and the others? I thought this season was pretty fun. As for next, I'm super excited for the new Natsume season.

Speaking of seasons, can we get spring soon? What is this weather we're getting??? Someone make it stop. *sighs*
Dustro Mar 17, 6:35 PM
Yeah I understand. One thing I want to ask: despite joining in 2012 you only watched 40 anime, of course not everyone has time watch everything. I'm just curious.
Dustro Mar 17, 3:19 PM
No problem at all, everyone has their friend request thing, some wants to talk a while first, some don't even accept, that is to be respected of course, everyone is different. I guess it's about how one perceives the term "friend". For example I don't use any sort of social media things like facebook for example but I use Steam.

I consider my friends "on this site" as "associates I can talk anime with" but of course not as true friends. "On steam" for example I only have my "true friends" but I saw some people on steam who adds people like it's nothing, some has 5 friends for 5 years... some has 100 but it has only been 1 month, so yeah I can understand, Since I'm exactly like you on my steam profile, I want to talk with the guy on the other hand first.

Great taste. I even remember sending you a fr, it's ok thouh.

I actually watched it on the Japanese airlines, lol. They had it available as a part of their film selection.

My friend drew it for me on my birthday! I requested an Utena x Penguindrum crossover.
