Huh. Mixed feelings, then.. May the force be with you, borther!

That's the first I heard of pubg being banned here lol. Let me check and oh it happened 2 days ago.... Lol. Yeah whatever, don't think it'll last too long.

I haven't started anything yet xD
For now planning to watch Vinland Saga and Lord El Melloi II Case Files. To Aru Kagaku no Accelerator too, but after I read the manga ofc which will take a while. There's also DanMachi S2 I guess... Ngl, not super stoked this season XD

Also deleted a few things off my ptw again. Dropped down from 55 to 49 fuck yeah.
World of Colors which aired 2 seasons ago, seems like I won't be getting into it after all and seeing its current score kinda made things worse a bit.. Same with Rokka no Yuusha which aired 4 years ago and has a middling score. Basically fuck the Code Geass Akito movies too, not going to bother. I am merely writing this here for future reference.
Botato Jun 27, 2019 11:59 PM
Oh ouch. Hope it wasn't too bad and the extra pay was worth it :feelshugman:
It would have been worse if they did it in 2D though. Problem is this is an original project, it's not tied to any of the idol games that have a big following and make lots of money already. Not sure if they fixed anything in BDs tbh

Gacha is a literal slot machine. What with all the flashy effects and colors etc.
And yeah I heard and watched a bit, bloody clowns. "We don't make money off our games they're free to play!" Now don't get me wrong EA was terrible too but compared to epic they actually seemed like they at least tried... Fuck epic.
UK Parliament people were amazing lol, not having any of their corporate bs.
Botato Jun 9, 2019 3:35 AM
Indeed.

Oh yeah, definitely. For one thing it was by studio Bones who have a more solid track record (at least as far as production is concerned) than JC Staff and they're also not buried under a bajillion anime projects in a short amount of time. There was even talk about some Mob Psycho staff bragging how much ahead of schedule they were before the anime started airing. No surprise it was better than its first season.
No no no the show itself is good overall, it's just the performance scenes are usually done with cgi in idol anime and uhhh... ZLS had pretty poor cgi. Luckily it sold well so if they make a second season budget will likely be higher.

You know, you're right lol.

Mhm precisely. A shame, really, since most franchises these days go the gacha route and never come back due to how lucrative it is. But hey, eventually they'll die out and have to do something else. R-Right?

I appreciate the comment.
You a man of culture as well.

So about Kaguya, I saw a lot of people saying irrational things like it is starting to drag on or its pointless, it achieved its goal. Not even close, these latest chapters have been some of the best. This is were Aka really started digging in his characters' minds and he also addressed some deep social aspects. Not to talk about ch.150, that was even more ultra romantic than the cultural festival. It's shocking and intense.
Kaguya-sama is really a brilliant work.
Botato Jun 1, 2019 2:58 AM
I mean cliff hangers normally don't mean much to me, especially since like I said I am familiar with the upcoming content. But yes they're handling the material very well. Also did I mention that the music is great? The music is great.

Well, some of them don't really look that bad. I'm seeing many small details missing, sometimes from the backgrounds, which is common for anime adaptations vs their manga counterparts. That said I do feel it in the smoke and explosion effects, oof. Some of the shots feel very lazy too; as in they zoomed in on areas with less details to have less shit to draw. But yeah like you said, not the end of the world. I do miss the previous season's quality ;-;
Colossal Titan didn't bother me as much as I expected, actually. I don't remember if I saw something more horrendous recently but-... Wait actually, I did see worse CG recently. In Zombieland Saga.

Here's the difference between us tho: You actually make use of your ptw still, to some extent anyway, I think I haven't actually used it properly since I "cleaned" it up last time.... Time to uninstall MAL lol.

Oof. Yeah that sucks. I've just resorted to a GBA emulator on my phone, so if I ever find myself in a similar situation and away from my pc I can enjoy some old school handhelds. Before you ask, I tried mobile games, they just don't do it for me.

Thx man. But the hate only makes it better. The truth always hurts more, so deep inside they got the message but rejected it.
Botato May 18, 2019 11:04 AM
I didn't read the manga, no. I did read some chapters following the ending of S1 (which at the time I haven't actually seen, I just knew the general plot thanks to unchecked spoilers on fb of all places), but at some point I just started reading summaries when I didn't feel like reading a full chapter.
For this season, I think it's great. The anime has been on a roll since S2. All the good moments were made better thanks to the visuals, music and great direction. Anyone who was familiar with the manga would agree, I think. It's what I wish most studios would take as an example when doing adaptations.

I'm not sure what you're referring to, lol. My memory is failing me today. Like I said though, S1 is superior visually. A downgrade IS noticeable, it just isn't the trash people make it out to be; it's bad relative to S1, but it's about average or even above average compared to anime in general. You're not missing much by skipping, honestly, so yeah.

Pretty much. Man there are still things on mine from like, 2011 or 2012; before I even signed up on MAL.

I know that feel bro. It's a phase, I think. Occasionally I get in an anime mood and marathon anywhere between 3-10 shows in about a month or less, only to get burned out and slow down again to 1-3 every 3 months.
Botato May 11, 2019 11:18 AM
Yeah well, the usual rule of thumb is to lurk sub-forums of what's popular in a given season.
Yes it is. In some cases it is non-existent even. But like I said the art quality is good, and I think they did a good job making the still images look good and even compensated for lack of fluidity with the way they cut between frames. So far it seems to be more of the same; more heroes, more monsters, etc. One of the new characters might make things interesting but I haven't read the manga so iunno.

Yeeeeeah... Although I will say thinning down my ptw felt good for some reason haha.

No worries, lol. That's what I do too mostly. There just isn't much I want to talk about these days so I don't visit the forums too often.
Botato May 7, 2019 3:47 AM
The fun is in not reducing your lifespan or brain cell count. Also I don't think anyone claims Kirito is best mc, that's a common misrepresentation of SAO fans.
Eh, nah pass. I liked the comedy and the fight scenes were great in S1. S2 has the comedy, but sadly the animation isn't exactly up to par. The art looks good overall so it's not a complete disaster visually, but anyway. If you weren't fond of S1 I can't imagine you'd enjoy S2 in any capacity.

Rofl. Yeah well, pretty much my PTW/PTR lists. I actually even ended up removing a bunch of stuff from my PTR list specifically a couple months ago. Years just pass by and I make no progress so I decided to completely drop the idea of reading certain titles. All of them were LNs, I don't remember if I deleted some manga titles but anyway.

Oi, are you dissing my boy Late Reply? He's pretty cool, I'll have you know!
Botato Apr 26, 2019 9:56 AM
Of course, haha. I really miss posting in a friendly sub-forum. These days the things I watch are either shitty adaptations of things I like so if I go to threads I'mma just be a salty sourcefag, or overhyped stuff which means shitstorms.
Speaking of overhyped stuff, are you watching OPM 2 this season? What do you think so far?

Well this is where the analogy falls apart XD
Like yeah I'd store it for later but by the time I get around to eating it I received 5 other cakes as well. Now, obviously the smart thing to do would be to store those for later yet again. That's precisely what I'm doing, I'm a smart man I'll have you know, and thus you know the true story behind my backlog. I had too much cake.

Thank you!
And... Yeah pretty much. Oh well.
Botato Apr 20, 2019 9:34 AM
There doesn't seem to be any official source cited in that article tho...
I want a 3rd season so they can fix the abrupt ending, but it's not gonna happen.

Nah my point is, why buy 2 cakes when you can only eat 1. Sure the second one would taste great if you picked correctly, but you can't eat it anyway so who cares.

Life's weird. Lots of stuff not happening.
Basically I graduated and now looking for a job.
Botato Apr 16, 2019 11:49 AM
Pretty sure there is no S3, someone just added it and the mods never got around to nuking it. I tried looking for any official sources for an announcement, nothing. If you happened to come across, do share, having no confirmation is too much for my little heart.

Ah well, I'll try nyaa next time I'm in a LN mood. I do remember getting the first 4-5 volumes off of a random forum when the anime was still new though. Won't start until I know for a fact I can find future volumes though; it would suck if I started and then had to stop mid-way through the story.

I feel like we've talked about this before so I'm getting weird deja vu here. But anyway yeah that's a great way to live. I go the extra mile by not picking up things I have the slightest feeling they will bore me at some point. It means I miss out on very rare gems but honestly considering I'm rarely in an anime mood lately that doesn't matter. As long as I get a decent couple episodes every week I'm good, no point in watching everything I will enjoy. If anime was my only hobby then sure, it could work. But I also read manga, LNs sometimes, and although very rarely just random books. Not to mention video games and yt videos etc, there's just a lot to do in my free time it's impossible to do everything.

Oh I will. Like World of Colors and Dororo, it's on my radar. I will watch them, eventually, just now isn't the right time I think :joy:
You'd be surprised at how much I felt Hibike Euphonium S2 improved over S1 just because I was in a better mood when watching it.
Botato Apr 15, 2019 2:13 AM
Ah Sidonia, brings back a lot of memories. Some painful ones too. Truly a bullied child, that series.

Is there an active fan translation for NGNL or are you buying the official translation? I kind of wanted to read it after S1 ended but there wasn't much material and it was hard to find. I might dig into it at some point because we are never going to get S2 rip.
In terms of gaming yeah they've been great, heh.

Well at least you haven't burned out yet. I sort of don't feel like keeping up with seasonals this spring, luckily from what's airing I'm only interested in AoT and OPM, they're not much and they're sequels to things I like so should be easy. I wanna try that Kimetsu no Yaiba too but kinda wanna read the manga first.
Sounds to me like you read the Kaguya manga, lol. How is it? Did you read anything else?
Botato Apr 13, 2019 3:33 AM
Oh no there are still people, they're just more spread out. People watch more things in general now every season, so unless there's something like ReZero or Steins;Gate or the like, you will see less activity on individual series. But overall I'd say it's the same, even when MAL went down for like 3 months straight people still came back anyway. The less toxic bs the better imo, so less 10/10 vs 1/10 is a good thing.

Ah, those buggers are a pain. Hit me up if you find a reasonable solution, I'm kinda out of ideas.

Not much, really, haha. But I skimmed through our last conversation and wow, things have really changed. First off I am now up to date with the Index novels, read every single volume of it, the sequel new testament AND all official parodies/side stories. S3 was shit btw.
I also got a good chuckle out of my giving up on anything new Mega Man, literally 1 month or less after that conversation MM11 was announced and things are actually looking good for a change.

What about you? Anything exciting besides 8 legged abominations?
Botato Apr 12, 2019 10:08 AM
Would have been in the 50,000s by now if not for Skype and later Discord taking over most of my conversations with people. Also I may or may not have given up on episode discussion threads on MAL entirely.
But anyway, 20k is nothing if you have places you hang out at regularly here.

Indeed. About a year and a half, in fact. How have you been? No more problems with man eating spiders I hope?
