Aikatsu Stars with a bit of a hiccup in ep 90. Kirara was able to perform after being injured like that? I know the best people in the business play and perform through pain and intense stress, but she did need Rei's help just getting back to the stage. Oh well. This show is still too damn awesome. Shows why Rei is also a very strong presence herself!

I'm enjoying it a lot as well, all the teasing from Takagi-san and the reactions from Nishikita really cheer me up after the cold weather and classes. There's also just the right amount of innocent romance that makes me melt. Episode 3 was just lovely. <3

being teased is good... I like it a lot too, I think it helps that the show is very good at showing the sweetness behind takagi's teasing. I see a lot of comparisons to tonari no seki-kun but I like takagi-san more as seki never felt like an actual character to me, just a device used to set up gags. Whereas this feels more like two young teens enjoying their youth, its charming. Also if the show ends where I think its gonna end then I'm looking forward to seeing peoples reactions lol

poor rey doesn't have a picture on mal I see ;;

hows darling in the franxx? from what I can tell its juvenile in both the best (anime girl mechs) and worst (butt piloting) ways and I'm pretty conflicted about watching it

I see. If only the actual animations could be as clean as the original sources, then I wouldn't think so poorly of the hentai medium. Unfortunately, curiosity and being a "Lonely Driver" like the one dude in Initial D has me checking out these questionable works on rare occasion. And yeah, I never thought I would ever get even the slightest bit interested in politics, but thanks to Mark Dice, James O'Keefe (Project Veritas), and President Trump I've been forced to pay good attention to what's happening. Hard to believe so much lunacy surrounds us!

Those action-JRPG games are time sinks though, I tell you! I spent over a hundred hours on NieR Automata as well. Stellar game, to say the least! As for idols, I do have a guilty pleasure towards those as well. I really only like Aikatsu and Love Live though if we're talking idol anime. But yeah, this season has some interesting shows. CCS is CCS, but just modernized with mobile devices and such. I'm naturally weak toward shows like Yuru Camp, and this one reminds me of Tamayura and Yama no Susume. Koi wa Ameagari no You ni is just mesmerizing with its purpose and delivery and could be the next rom-com classic. Evergarden looking clean as ever for KyoAni works. And Sangatsu just TOO damn GOOD. Show is unstoppable and on a mission to be one of the greatest and most substantial anime ever! Well, at least imho. But there are revelations to be had still, so we'll see! haha

Hard to believe it's been well over five-and-a-half years since I saw Aria. I'll rewatch it someday and hopefully get even more out of the second helping. Even at my age, I can wholeheartedly say I'm a lot different now than I was before. Tutu has a pretty compelling final arc from what I remember. I think it was just the comedy style and repetitive nature of some of the side characters and their tropes that turned me off. But wow. Aria, GitS, AND Ef all held up over these years! Just shows how much I value those three because a LOT of great content was consumed since.

Yeah, I was fine. Shows how indifferent I am to natural disaster alerts. Honestly, I think the only scares for me would involve knives and more immediate conflicts. But anyway, thanks for your concern! Shame on whoever whiffed bigtime putting out that alert!

Not sure what to think of it. It was cute, I suppose. But my picky side will suggest too great an emphasis on body fluids and the usual trashy lines plaguing hentai from this decade especially. Seriously! I don't need a damn play-by-play saying how the man's penis is thrusting in and out or hitting the womb. Like, that would be really, really bad news if a woman talked like that to me during intercourse - much like most of the mainstream media (particularly CNN and NBC) nowadays! Not suggesting I have experience or will experience that anytime soon, but you get the idea. And I definitely don't condone drugging of women either, even if it was with good and upbeat intentions like in this particular hentai. Still, I got my (brief) adrenaline rush from it...

So what's good with you? Playing any games or anything of the like. I put a dent in my life career, whatever that turns out to be, with Tales of Berseria (PS4) through TWO 100+ hour playthroughs. And now it's Cyberdimension Neptunia (PS4) setting me back just a little bit further! I swear. I really feel like I'm doing the best drugs out there playing Neptunia - without actually doing drugs! Japan knows what the heck's up for single and lonely guys like myself. Oh, and I say that with sarcasm, but with a hint of truth.

Gakuen Babysitters was very cute, and relatable in some ways, thanks for the rec. :)
MintzZz Jan 15, 12:43 PM
I'd say it's even worse since the borderline rape scenes last a lot longer and the art is a noticeable downgrade. Think I'll stick to slice of life shows and sequels as usual.
Veronin Jan 13, 7:10 PM
For sure. I think Clear Card-hen and Sangatsu no Lion are the best of what's airing right now, although I haven't been able to empathise with Sangatsu's second season as much as I did with the first. Perhaps you'll feel the same way.
Veronin Jan 6, 7:02 PM
Finished earlier today. The robots screaming イタイイタイ as you're fighting them, and that half-destroyed robot at the forest reactor (コロセコロセコロセ) are what hit me the hardest for some reason. Tons of memorable (depressing) moments in there.

Are you a university student now? I never did ask what you've been up to lately. As far as the rainy season goes, it varies a lot. 2017 was nothing, but when I came in Sep '16 there were typhoons strong enough that your umbrella would fly away/break and you'd be drenched within seconds of going outside. That's quite rare.
Veronin Jan 6, 2:36 AM
Actually, I think I'm going to apply for a working holiday visa. So it's possible that from late April/early May, I'll begin living permanently in Japan.
Veronin Jan 5, 10:05 PM
Route B was quite nice, with the whole Forest King backstory having the biggest impact, but it was also extremely short for me - maybe three or four hours, as I just wanted to get to Route C as quickly as possible. As far as that one goes, I've only gotten up to where a 'certain' character dies, but that entire hour was incredibly intense and unlike most things I've experienced in games. The only part that frustrated me was the virus segment, since it made me fall in a ditch and die and have to repeat things from the Bunker again...
I've heard that the best stuff is still yet to come. Hopefully I can do the rest of it in one sitting tonight or tomorrow.

Yup. The plan is to land in Tokyo around April 29th, and stay until the beginning of September in an apartment with my girlfriend. That means I will indeed be there in June!
Koybz Jan 5, 12:54 AM
thank you! it was only one exam today but it went pretty well despite me being super underprepared due to watching so much stars lol. Yeah, that's actually a much less intimidating sounding schedule for getting through shows. I think I'm averaging about the same with stars and once I catch up I'll probably move to something else then since 4 episodes a night give or take is really doable. I might actually focus on finishing doremi after this as well as checking out some new anime this season.

Yeah, they'll definitely finish this arc which I'll take although I guess in a way Aikatsu feels more like a long burning shounen kinda series in that development is small but gradual and that it could go on for as long as it needs to in terms of episodes before it ever feels complete but I can see why the team is insistent on shaking things up at the 100 episode mark to keep interest up. I have trust in this director honestly so that's relieving to hear, his vision and direction with stars has been really solid so I know even with the new protagonists he'll probably bring it in a satisfying direction.

No but I just finished the episode where Ako gets her own kids show and it is the most perfect thing for her haha, her relationship with kirara is cute too. I should get to that a little later though but I'll look forward to it! Oh yeah and thanks again for the second episode, I'll probably have it watched by the time you read this lol
Koybz Jan 3, 7:17 PM
ahh I know, it's kinda all I've been doing lately haha

I've really come to love stars though, its everything I love about Aikatsu but it still very much has its own voice and tone that separates it from its predecessor. I'm surprised by how well stars has been handling its emotional weight, its not really something I expect from Aikatsu but it captures the pains and triumphs of rivalries and the competitiveness of the idol industry without losing what makes Aikatsu what it is. Yume and Laura (or Rola? I'm not sure which one is right honestly) are amazing main characters and their friendship/rivalry has become one of my favourites in anime. Waiting to see where this second season goes now, I would've like to see yume and the others get more time to grow as top idols before immediately becoming underdogs again but I've been enjoying this arc too, koharu has been getting some good development and geez those crossover episodes were a little forced, but very fun and nostalgic especially since they used the old bgm.

Looks like we're gonna be getting a new generation of idols next season too which is a little sad I still think there's lots of room to do stuff with this cast, I wonder if stars will even get to 170 episodes though. Not looking forward to watching it weekly once I catch up but it's my fault for binging it lol, also heck speaking of getting through things fast you're already at G Gundam, damn. I wanna know what you think of Ideon when you watch that too.

Hope you had a good new years btw, my semester exams start in like 10 hours which I should totally get back to studying for now ;;
Veronin Jan 1, 9:25 PM
It's quite good. I just finished Route A last night, actually. I've heard Route C (the third and final playthrough) is what makes the game special, though, so I'm looking forward to seeing where the story goes when I get there.

I thought the Skytrain in Vancouver would serve all my needs, but nah, the number of stations is very limited, and it only goes as far south as upper Richmond, so I still need a car to even get to a station in the first place. And there's not even a station by Stanley Park, as far as I could tell. I'm having trouble understanding how a country's only viable form of transport is a car, since that seems so 1950's to me. Japan had the Shinkansen open in 1964... c'mon.

How is Toronto? Are you in the city or one of the suburban parts?
