Yes, yes, my bad. I didn't mean to take away that inch and a half. Google told me 5.375. so I just ended up saying 5'3". Hey, we're similar though, go us. Woo.

Yeah, I think a lot of jobs in that regard are "hero" jobs. I still admire their bravery towards things like that. Actually, everyone in the armed forces. It must be really nice to have a dream to be able to drop everything and just go for it. It couldn't have been the easiest decision. How much longer do you think it'd take to get near that type of position from where you are? I'm not very knowledgeable of the armed forces in general and the requirements to get higher in position or to get into a specific role.

Haha, maybe I'll try to work on building muscle mass one of these days. I'll start thinking about it. I definitely will sign up for the draft soon, most likely this weekend.

Oh, that show. I remember seeing a lot of pictures about that show as it was airing. I think I heard it was quite the "moe" anime, but also entertaining towards slice of life viewers. I hope you do enjoy Nichijou, it's one of the major slice of life anime that I first viewed that made me really want to dive deeper into the genre. I'd love to talk about it after if you're up for it when you've finished. I have more recommendations when you're finished with that too..

Do you have any plans to visit Hawaii again? Or is your next few years occupied by the military to try to get to the position you want? Not sure how it all works in the military.

Hold on, you're 64.5 inches? 5'3"? Not what I imagined honestly. Height definitely isn't a big factor in life when looking at the grand scheme of things. It's just a little thing that I wish I were taller. That's honestly hilarious to know. I guess everyone really has that one hobby that anyone can partake in, regardless of occupation and stereotypes.

EOD sounds a little frightening.. (I just looked it up. Is it the bomb squad thing?) That's actually reassuring to hear, lol. I didn't want it to come off as a rude kind of way towards the country. Being drafted just sounds a little intimidating since I'm not the most physical person. Speaking of physical shape, that's probably out of it for me. I'm pretty lean but in terms of having no muscle mass also. I hope you get where you wish to be. I know you always try your best, so keep it up.

Haha yeah. I still do very much so enjoy writing, even though I barely do any form of that anymore. That was an interesting path that I never thought I'd consider taking. Looking back at that now, it definitely is a good choice to not partake in that and follow through. It was more along the lines of an in-the-moment type of thing. What can you do? Life just rolls that way. I hope I can find a job that I wouldn't mind doing in the science field. It's a little intimidating thinking of all the horror stories that come with "intro-level jobs" in the science field. Many have pretty harsh requirements with subpar pay, or so from what I've heard. At the moment I'm just taking life one semester at a time. More like one day at a time since I procrastinate and push everything off.

I'm actually really glad to hear you find Lucky Star entertaining. Welcome to my genre, slice of life. I can introduce you to so, so many shows. At first, I also put off the genre a bit and looked more towards story and whatnot, but over time after watching more anime and seeing what taste suits me, the slow and steady style of everyday life captures me. I think I may actually prefer episodic anime over overarching storylines that play from the first ep to the last. I find it to be less of a chore to have to "start and finish" to allow characters to develop and whatnot. Have you seen Nichijou? It's similar to Lucky Star, but far superior.

I wish one day we could meet and talk in person. You're someone whom I've actually known longer than most of my current group of friends funnily enough.
Yuusa Jan 15, 10:42 PM
It's amazing to hear you want to take up that position honestly. As much as I love this country, I don't think I'd want to join the military and fight for it. Honestly, I signed up for FAFSA this past semester and haven't done the draft yet cause I don't want a potential drafting to happen. (I'm also lazy) I need to really get on that and sign up though, so I can make sure I don't get kicked off FAFSA. I didn't qualify for any financial aid, but just for future semesters to come.

Yeah, it's been a long time. High school flew by and now here I am in college almost done with my first year. I remember meeting you back in seventh grade on that one server (I don't remember the name). Tylee messages me once in a blue moon about random stuff, but that's like once every 2 years or so maybe. Throughout K-12 I was very interested in science, so I figured that'd be the field for me to go into. I was going to do computer science since I've been living on the computer for as long as I can remember (maybe kindergarten? due to my older step-sister playing online games), but I opted out of that and went for the biology route. I kind of regret that a little bit, but it's whatever. I didn't think coding and whatnot was for me, but the more I think about it, I could have just tried it at first to see what it was like. I already took classes towards the biology major though, and I don't want to waste money by needing to be in school for longer, so I don't want to switch back over.

That's actually funny to think honestly. I just picture a bunch of 6' tall, buff guys talking over whose waifu is better. Oh, on that note. I hate my height. I got the bad end of the stick when talking about that gene lottery. I'm only like 5'4". My mother's side the guys are at least 5'9", but my father's side the guys aren't that tall. Maybe like 5"5'. Tangent, sorry. I haven't really watched anime since late 2015. The only show I watched was gochuumon season 2 in April 2016, but that was cause of my friend. I've been more into games (just picked up a new game today that I'm in love with). What about you? Has your taste or anything changed after watching more anime?
Yuusa Jan 14, 3:44 PM
I don't think I had the best reaction to seeing the alert going off on my phone. My first thought was, "Do I need to go to work still?" Since I had to wake up around that time to get ready. The answer was yes since it was false. I feel like I didn't really have any fear towards that alert. Maybe since I didn't hear the sirens go off or anything, so I didn't think it was anything dire. Or maybe I'm just conditioned to death since I've always joked about that kind of thing throughout high school.

Hm.. life... I think it's going rather okay. I just started my second semester of college (it's insane how much time has passed since we first met back in.. 2012? 2011?), and I'm having more fun than in high school. The freedom and ability to make my own schedule brings me great pleasure. I decided to major in biology (for now at least), but that could change at any moment. I decided to take the cheap route and do 2 years at LCC before transferring up to UH to finish my bachelor's. How have you been? It's been a while since we talked.

At the same time I'm upset about your review of Ajin, I'm also happy. Because it shows how much people were blind whatching this show. People hated it only for the sake of being CG. But luckily those blinded people are the dumb part of anime community, specially with your review saying that this show isn't 30fps. That setence only prove that you have no idea what are you talking about. So I'm definitely happy that most of people hating the show have no idea how does animation works and the normal anime fans apreciated the show.

Thanks for accepting!! Haha I'm not actually Italian, but it's sort of the nickname I go by for Vincent, and my last name starts with a Z haha.
I appreciate the recommendation! I'll definitely give it a shot :)

I find it hilarious that these motherfuckers are butthurt over your review of Ajin. "Oh woe-is-me, someone made a negative review of my favorite Anime. I shall proceed to tell him why he's absolutely wrong and why I'm absolutely right." Kenyanke even went as far to tell you why your review isn't valid, LOL. Talk about being asshurt over a fucking review. You keep roasting shitty Anime while these morons moan and harass someone for having a different opinion. Shit, I have series that I like that people hate and I don't go on their profile to tell them why they're wrong.

Okay, some/many movie I think have a good story but sometime the pace really make it bad or that movie have a bad story.
Well, sorry my english not good so I can explain so well and can just talking little.

See this https://myanimelist.net/blog/RinceWavest (but not detail because same reason :'>)

Also, one more thing, not sure if you're clear on this or not. 2d animation has never been 30+ frames per second. Standard for 2d at least is always 24 fps. Or 12. or 8. 3d animation is newer, and in stuff that's going for a more 3d aesthetic, like Disney, instead of trying to emulate an anime vibe, will probably go 30, etc. But Ajin was trying to make itself look like regular 2d anime with the lower frame rate. That's part of what I meant by uncanny valley.
virulentbunny Jun 21, 2017 5:58 PM
Hey jerk, I'm an animation student. I know what an inbetween is, lmao. It's still 8 frames per second in a lot of anime. Some of those 8 frames are inbetweens, some of them are keyframes. Inbetweens are just frames that you draw after you draw your keyframes. The frame that you linked to is actually usually called a smear, and it does help with smoother movement. That kind of thing is really missing in Ajin, but just adding more frames wouldn't fix the issue. Smears make anime more dynamic and intense. More frames would just make it smoother, but wouldn't add much else.
I don't like anime with less movement, I like anime with "anime movement." I don't know if you'll understand the distinction that I want to make here unless I really over-explain it, so I'll just refrain. I guess let me know if you're interested and I'll try to further explain myself. But buddy. I ADORE great animation. Give me an example of some anime you really like and consider good animation, and I'd love to try and deconstruct it for you.
Also, I'm just gonna say -- pretty sure you misunderstood my uncanny valley comment completely. Nod accepted.
I did enjoy Ajin, but not for the animation. There, we agree. I was just trying to explain to you where your critique of that bad animation was inaccurate to my understanding.
u too bud
virulentbunny Jun 19, 2017 9:15 PM
You know most anime is on 3's, right? That means 8 frames per second. And much of the typical 2d animation has a bunch of tricks with panning and still frames to conserve their resources for when they really need to go 24 fps. Anime has never, to my knowledge, been at a higher frame rate than that. I guess because it's 3d, none of those conventions really apply and Ajin could be rendered at any framerate, but if you're comparing it to other anime you've seen, the framerate isn't really the issue. Tbh, I personally find that I prefer it, and would actually prefer less movement sometimes to get a closer effect to 2d anime, but that's me. It's in sort of an uncanny valley where it's not quite the 2d you're used to, it moves a little too smoothly and precisely for that, but it's choppier than realistic cgi and video games. I've been thinking about the animation in ajin since I started watching it today and wanted to clear up a few things, and also add my two cents.
