Glad to hear. Sounds like you're very busy but in a good way, haha.

I've been well! I actually might visit Houston this winter. A close friend of mine lives there and I figure that would be a relatively cheap winter getaway.

I might be stretching the definition of "lately" with a few of these, but Shirobako, Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu, and The Case of Hana & Alice are all great. I'm enjoying Katanagatari at the moment, but not as much as those three.

Yup yup. "A better version of YYH" is definitely an apt way to describe HxH.. Not to discredit YYH by any means, because it's a good show in its own right, but Hunter x Hunter just takes it to another level. Enjoy the ride.
And Kino has been fantastic so far. Perhaps the most thought-provoking anime I've seen, maybe with the exception of Monster (I guess that doesn't mean much though, seeing as how a decent chunk of the anime I've actually watched is just mindless action :P).

And yeah I hear you. I'm not as busy as you seem to be, but I haven't regularly posted on the forums for a long time either. As for LSU, agreed. I feel like the media (particularly ESPN) has pushed the narrative for the last few years that Miles is a great coach and LSU fans should be thankful/lucky to have him, but there is no excuse for failure at this point. LSU is very, very arguably the most talented team in the nation (even ahead of Bama) and losing to Wisconsin with all of that talent is just... wow. I actually feel like the LSU fanbase has been incredibly patient with Miles. The team has been in the situation of "we just need a QB and we'll be unstoppable" dating back to at least the Jordan Jefferson days, which was like 5 years ago at this point.. If Miles can't find a QB in 5 years, he's never going to, so changes probably need to be made. I'm not sure if LSU has any chance at Tom Herman, but you guys should definitely make a run at him. Especially since maybe (maybe) Texas might be in line for a good year (thus equaling Strong not getting fired, so Texas won't go after Herman). Though if Texas is for real this year, I honestly might say it's less due to Strong being a good coach and more of Sterlin Gilbert/Shane Buechele saving Strong's job.

What's up man? Been a while. I would ask if you're hyped for college football this year, but sadly I think your excitement is probably already dampened somewhat.. Sorry for the loss against Wisconsin :(. On the bright side, A&M looked good vs. UCLA so there is that. I guess nobody is going to create a CFB thread on the forum this year..? I mean, I would just create the thread myself, but honestly, if one hasn't been created by now it's probably a sign that a CFB thread wouldn't see much activity besides posts from you and I, lol.. But I guess we could still give it a shot. I hope you're enjoying HxH, by the way. Really great anime if I say so myself.

Hope all goes well with that and that is super impressive. I have my parents to thank as well. It was my mom who convinced me to start going again. I think I finally found my passion that I also want to have as a career as well. First and foremost, I play guitar and music is probably my top passion in life. I originally went to school for music, but realized I hated it. Ironically my first job ever was a guitar instructor and loved it lol. I love music for myself, but found I have absolutely no drive to ever have a career in it. It wasn't till till I built my PC quite a few years ago that my love for computers and the like was sparked again. I pretty much grew up with them. I learned Linux super hard and I am constantly modding, fixing things, or finding projects to do with consoles and PCs. A year ago I finally realized that is what I should be working towards.

My love for anime and film really translates to my music taste. The first genre I truly fell for was progressive rock which typically the songs are super long. So when I hear about this yakuza epic that spans over 8 hours it really gets me hyped lol. I love journeys that don't sacrifice themselves by any time constraint.

Also after all these years I am finally watching Ergo Proxy and I am quite enjoying it. I remember seeing the cover for that show at a store like 8 years ago and always thought it looked interesting. I saw you watched it ^_^

I know what you mean. I had to watch it a few times to understand it all. I also first saw it when I was younger and recently got the blu-ray release. Watched it now that I am older and it gave me a different perspective. I love films/series that can grow with you like that.

I just been gaming super hard since last year. I think I beat more games last year than I ever have, literally. I have a whole old school set up I worked on with modded consoles and such. Working on my steam catalog now though again after getting a new GPU and monitor. ^_^

Also going back to school to finally get a bachelors. I struggled pretty hard with not really knowing what to do with my life and barely got an associates. I never thought I would go back, but I'm glad I am and have a renewed drive for it. : )

I saw the new Ghost in the Shell movie in theaters and was surprised how much I liked it. I think it tied up Arise nicely and had the right amount of throwbacks to the original. I saw the original Ghost in the Shell at a movie theater near me as well that was pretty sick!

Been going pretty hard on Criterion/old Japanese movies as well. Just watched Battles Without Honor and Humanity in all its 8.3 hour glory and I highly recommend it!

Anything new with you!?

Jin-Rou is incredible. Loved that I just saw that on your list.

The second season spends more time on the character (and volleyball skill) development of the whole team, rather than just Hinata and Kageyama, which is a very welcome change. I like those two, but they're not interesting enough to run the whole show by themselves.

My plan was to watch an episode every few days, so I would catch up near the end. But I ended up watching multiple episodes everyday, haha.
Josh Jan 22, 7:50 PM
It's pretty great. I regret starting it before it finished, because now I have to wait a week between episodes...

Merry Christmas! :)
Josh Oct 25, 2015 4:55 PM
Yup! That said, I've seen the first three rebuild movies, read some of the manga, and heard a lot about it. So I wouldn't say I'm going in blind.

My final verdict on Haikyuu is "decent". I never really became interested in the narrative or the characters, but I enjoyed watching the matches. I'm certainly not in a rush to watch the second season.

One thing Haikyuu did do is get me pumped for my volleyball games tomorrow (I have two back-to-back), haha. I'm ready to crush the other teams!

At first the shounen/sports cliches bugged me quite a bit, but I got over them. The sheer unreality of the gameplay is both hilarious and entertaining. It's inspiring me to try harder. (I'm on a recreational volleyball team right now.)
