HAPPY BELATED MY PRECIOUS YURI LOVING FRIEND!! Thank you for your amazing birthday wishes. As always, im bad at wishing you a happy birthday on your ACTUAL birthday. I have started work after graduation so its been hectic and have not had a chance to message you back. Perhaps we can try shorter Private Messages so it can be more often? May goddess Utena and Madokami have mercy on our filthy weeb souls LMAO. I love and miss our conversations. I hope you had an amazing birthday!!

KKKkk
Yeah I remember you used to play Rusty Hearts acting like a girl.
I tried to play it again months ago but the game is long gone :(

Some guys tried to create a private server to play rusty hearts but they failed hard.
What a shame.

I watched the first episodes from Golden Kamuy and I really enjoyed it specially the little girl.
She is so funny and cute.

This scene is so gold.

Oh she is a bit creepy but her voice is awesome. Is she a bit shoujo ai?
Well, if you like her, probably she is.

Glub Jul 22, 2018 9:00 PM
That was nothing. Years ago I changed my gender to female hoping some otakus would hit on me.
That was absolute madness!!1
Too bad none tried to seduce me :(

I saw some scenes from Golden Kamuy in the yt and it looks like the animation is fine.
Oh? Damn anime elitists! They force the shows to not use lots of hot girls in the anime.
I miss the old days when it was boobs everywhere.

*Gogling GAR*
Oh shit >.<

And who is this new girl on ur profile that doesn't show her eyes?


Glub Jul 20, 2018 8:34 PM
Yeah that was crazy. I never saw MAL going down for such a long time.

I didn't change anything. The only thing I changed was my gender to non-binary because Im a wannabe troll.

Huh? Okay, Im sure it was on your list. Sorry for not noticing it senpai.
Megumin is by far my favorite character in the show. She is awesome.

And Im gonna check Golden Kamuy that you are watching. I saw it in some random youtube list of top 100 shows from 2018 you must watch right now so it must be good.
Btw, are there many hot girls in this anime??




Glub May 15, 2018 4:41 PM
Usually I come back to MAL just when Im depressed but this time Im fine.

Huh? Idk what you are talking about. My favorites are super updated.
Are you ok? Did you hit ur head on a truck or something?

You really need to watch Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! (Anime that I added to my fav list years ago) to feel better.

So you will know the best character ever made
Glub May 7, 2018 5:43 PM
Morbylan you really need to update ur fav animes and mangas.
They are so fking old.

p.s Now I speak english very good :)
Balut Dec 24, 2017 5:35 PM
I've been so worried about you, Morby-kun! You haven't signed on since September!

Im so glad you dropped by to wish me a merry christmas and a happy new year. MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU AS WELL!! I cannot believe we have been talking for 5 years now!! and over 200 conversations!! I think that means I must visit Brazil and you must visit NYC some time soon!

Perhaps we can send each other gifts at some point! But that will have to start once both of us gets less busy! My last semester of college starts at the end of January, so i pray that you will pass your important test :)

Wishing you all the best and holiday yuri kisses!
This 2018 will be the gayest once Citrus starts :D

Talk to ya soon!
Balut Sep 26, 2017 3:03 PM
I CANNOT BELIEVE I HAVE MISSED YOUR BIRTHDAY BY LIKE A DAY!! YET AGAIN!!!
I hope all the yuri gods bless you with good gay kisses.

Things are going well but also very busy with school :x.

Im glad you are starting on your response! Super excited to hear more, love ya too
Balut Jul 25, 2017 1:07 PM
Hail to you, my Dear-Morby! Hope you are doing well! I will be organizing my reply so it is a little more structured so I can easily go through it!! Hope you don’t mind. Also, WOW IT’S KIND OF ALMOST BEEN A YEAR SINCE I REPLIED, HOW DREADFUL OF ME.

PERSONAL:
Fall and Spring semester were very hard semester’s work-wise. I started to get into the groove of being secretary of anime club and I am now (AHEM) the elected PRESIDENT of my anime club on campus for my senior year, starting this fall. Spring semester was especially busy since I took 2 online classes and I got an internship that was unpaid but I had a very rewarding time during it. Sorta scared for next year since i’m gonna be a senior and the real career world is so close. Even though I had many breaks I barely had time to reply and I was kind of bad at watching the airing anime I selected.

SPRING 2016:
YES HOW AMAZING IS SANSHA SANYOU. The ending is my favorite, especially Sonobe’s beginning part! Ahhh how I missed the antics, Doga Kobo is turning into my new found fave studio. Such fluid animation for quality comedy SoL anime!! I loved Teru x Nishiyama’s character interactions, reminded me of Kyouko x Ayano in Yuru Yuri at times. Also, Sansha Sanyou is made by the same person who made Mikakunin! Both adapted by Doga Kobo (based god-like studio now).

Have you seen the JoJo live action trailers? Sort of excited for it but I didn’t like Diamond enough to be super excited for it!
Speaking of JoJo, this is important is you haven’t ever seen it. Brings up the question...who is worse? Dio or Chinatsu? I forgot if I told you this or not but I used to have this running joke with my friends who have watched Yuru Yuri and we were always like if something bad happened we were like IT WAS CHINATSU. So like for example, I’d stub my toe and a friend would be like, wow CHINATSU, she did this, it was her, what’s next? Is she going to kill my whole family now? Hahaha, I hope you get a kick out of that inside joke. NOTE: not that I hate Chinatsu or anything, it was always just fitting since she was such a rascal as a kid to Kyouko. But like...she killed my family, you know? Unforgivable.

Side Note: Biba being slang for gay in Portuguese KILLED ME. That is SO FUNNY OMG, I got such a kick out of that. RIP Attack on Trains but not really cause apparently a s2 is coming? Please stop.

SUMMER 2016:
~All will be lightning fast round of summaries~

91 days: 4/10, Western mob movie thrills, yet too many characters to keep track of, bad stop image animation and haphazard character decisions.

Amaama to Inazuma: 8/10, totally recommend, one of my top anime of 2016, Here is a reason why.

Amanchu: 5/10, sweet, but kind of yuri bait with no underwater kiss when there were ample opportunities to.

Bananya: Anime of the century. I’m joking, 5/10. It was a fun short anime but nothing else.

Cheer Danshi: 4/10, Cheer sequences were well animated but everything else was poo and boring.

Kono Bijutsubu: 6/10, Colette (blonde girl) was the source of the comedy, but did repeat jokes sometimes. I find myself missing it, though.

Love Live Sunshine: 7/10, Gay Idols confirmed, Ruby and Dia are my faves, “IT’S JOKE!!”. My body is ready for s2.

Mob Psycho 100: 7/10, wholeheartedly enjoyed, Renge is a paranormal master, I love how ONE’s protags are always like “I really don’t want to be here but ok”.

New Game: 7/10, Very Gay, yet I thought the humor was bland at times, very excited for s2.

Shokugeki no Souma 2: 6/10, good as always but way less cohesive of a story line than s1.

(To address your Beserk side note, I am well aware of how good the manga is but I watched like 5 ep of the 90’s anime last summer and wasn’t into it at first, but will try to take it off hold at some point)

FALL 2016:
~Again, lightning fast round~

3 Gatsu no Lion: 5/10, Great imagery and poetic storytelling through MC’s feelings, but the focus on the second half shifted to way too much Shogi that it became boring. It was 22 or so ep so it ended in Winter 2017, but I’ll include it here.

Brave Witches: 4/10, Good gay stuff and combat, but entertaining in a bad way for me, I missed the original girls but I liked the small appearances.

Flip Flappers: 6/10, colorful zaniness and nice twists, but there were some plot holes that made me feel uncomfortable.

Hibike 2: 6/10, Kyoani ruins my dreams with yuri bait the anime, they tryna act like Reina aint gay, Loved Asuka’s moments, though.

Keijo: 8/10, One of the best anime of 2016 (totally serious). You bet your ass I’ve seen that Keijojo video on youtube. It’s honestly just ridiculously likable and a legitimately hype sports anime. “Why are there cards coming out of her butt?!” “Ass eater Nanase” So many good quotes..

Lostorage incited WIXOSS: 4/10, Full of deus ex machina, Chii-chan hates suzuko and then doesn’t?!, Angsty childhood friends with cards. I found the explanation why the LRIGs didnt end to be stupid and the other series was way superior. However, I really like the WIXOSS world so I would watch the sequel airing in Fall 2017.

Magical Girl Raising Project: 6/10, Very strong beginning episodes and great concept along with character backstories, but fell when I felt like the writers were just killing characters just for the sake of EDGINESS. Still have no idea why the raising project continued... Good hype to chat with my friends about when it was airing though.

Natsume Yuujinchou Go: 9/10, Always poetic, amazing, simple and soothing, makes me smile so much. This season as well as Roku we got to see the POV of characters we have never thought about before.

Stella no Mahou: 7/10, Plain and sweet yet extremely enjoyable. Character interactions reminded me of Yuru Yuri. The ending song is also very good (bad quality but still worth a listen). Totally recommend.

Shakunetsu no Takkyuu Musume (Scorching Ping Pong Girls): 7/10, A very intense girl sport anime that has funny moments and unique, likable characters. Needs a s2. Recommend 100%.

www.Working: 5/10, Repetitive jokes, forced romances, just very eh and made me miss the old Working.

Yuri on Ice: 6/10, Enjoyable to watch yes but not as good as people make it out to be. The music is great and the characters are interesting but the animation is honestly poop during the skating scenes and the gay stuff felt forced. Maybe i’m just butthurt it’s not actual yuri.

DID NOT WATCH: How did Drifters, Occultic Nine, and Shuumatsu no Izetta turn out?


MY TOP 5 OF 2016: 5. Keijo, 4. Amaama to Inazuma, 3. Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu, 2. Natsume Yuujinchou Go, 1. Sansha Sanyou

WINTER 2017:

~I’ll go over this season a little bit more in depth~
I almost watched Chaos Child for the sake of it being a sequel of Chaos Head but I barely finished ep 1 it was so bad.

Demi-chan wa Kataritai: 7/10, I will always watch something with monster girls in it. This is extremely funny, sweet and addresses the character’s problem/drama very appropriately. It also had great world building, like more atmosphere and setting where the demis coexist. Character interaction is great too. Succubus best girl. I would be willing to read the manga at some point. The reason i didn’t give it a higher score was because there was a character in love with a teacher, and personally I don’t like that recurring plot element in anime. I still recommend it!

Gabriel Dropout: 8/10, Based Dogo Kobo did it again. I freaking loved it. Funny, amazing music, great character dynamics and atmosphere. Satania-sama and Gab’s teleporting skirt/underwear are my faves. 8 and not a 9 cause Gabriel was not the MOST likable protag; her situations and friends were more funny than her character herself. A candidate for top 2017 anime.

Kobayashi-san: 8/10, Oh hoho Kyoani you have redeemed yourself for yuri. We have the same scores so I am sure you feel the same way; Super funny, charming, gay dragons with Nichijou or Denki-gai over the top comedy. Amazing music as well. Was not a 9 for me just cause the father drama seemed sorta unnecessary, as well as shota’s alchemy and elma’s character in general were out of place but a spectacular show. No fave character for me; kana, tohru, fafnir, kobayashi, takiya-kun, lucoa and riko are all amazing. Yet another top 2017 anime.

Kuzu no Honkai: 8/10, gosh this season was just so good for me. A dark, intelligent, profound and realistic drama/romance. It’s got incest love, unrequited yuri love, cheating (sorta?), sex, and just a lot of teenage wild feelings. I loved it, right up my ally. Some characters were irrelevant and the drama could be a tad melodramatic, so an 8 sufficed.

School Girl Strikers: 2/10, we have gone to highs to the lowest. I started watching this b/c i’m pretty sure I played the mobile app game it’s based on but also, the combat scenes in the first episode were VERY well animated and had NO CGI. Surprised, I went in cautious because I knew it was going to be the “bad anime” of this season. It def was; pacing issues, tropes, and deus ex machina plot. The 2 things I liked was some characters were likable and the ED was super catchy.

Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu s2: 9/10, hands down a top anime of 2017. I believe I discussed the previous season with you, but if not, it’s a beautiful drama not only about the showa-era and the art of rakugo but about what life and death means and it just touched me so much that it amazed me how thrilled I was to see how these characters ended up. You just gotta watch it. I would send you the s2 OP, but its kinda spoiler-ish to what happens in s1.

Urara Meirochou: 7/10, I really enjoyed the setting and topic this one focused on; divination/fortune telling. I see you are still watching this one as well and I hope you can agree with me that there are some Gochusa vibes where it is cute and funny but also the imagery with the divinations are beautiful. The serious plot with Chiya, her mom and her divination was unexpected, hence the low score, but it was a fun time and I would love to see their whole journey to rank 1 urara.

I surprisingly did not watch much Winter 2017, but did watch some gems. (NOTE: I did not include LWA, which I will discuss in Spring 2017, or Precure/Aikatsu Stars, which will have its own part in my “Currently Watching”)


SPRING 2017:

Alice to Zouroku: 2/10, The first episode was really cool with the whole ‘artificial children with powers’ thing but it got too serious and then the serious plot ended half way through the show, became a slice of life and then got way too serious again. However, the OP is amazing and the ED is by one of my favorite artists.

Eromanga-Sensei: 4/10, Typical oreimo feels and incest romance I guess. I didn’t find this anime as funny as Oreimo because the side characters were just not as interesting.

Hinako Note: 4/10, It was sweet and funny cute girl antics with great music but I thought the character dynamics and humor was lacking. The jokes were very repetitive and the theater stuff was very unfocused. I also could not get past the fact that the little girl prodigy advisor has fully formed boobs…

Little Witch Academia: 6/10, Cute adventures that I was looking forward too since the movies were nice and reminded me of a lot of american cartoons but it did suffer from being too predictable at times. I did not like the last episode tbh but I loved all the other episodic stuff.

Natsume Yuujinchou Roku: 9/10, Great feeling Natsume, It always warms my heart and makes me pray it’s not the last season. Just a very calming show.

Renai Boukun: 6/10, A funny, faced paced typical anime gag-like show, it got a little too serious in the last few episodes for my taste but it was a good time.

Shingeki no Kyojin 2: 6/10, I actually watched AnT 2 with a friend who did NOT watch the first season and still enjoyed watching with me. Same exciting titan stuff, got some more reveals but the slow disposition really made it boring at times. The ending was very hype though.

SukaSuka (Shuumatsu Nani blah blah): 3/10, This was a very interesting and unique anime that suffered from a convoluted adaptation, had an emotional ending but it did try VERY hard to be ~*PSYCHOLOGICAL*~

(I watched one episode of Sin Nanatsu no Taizai, which was an ecchi fest. NOTE: Hero Academia 2 and Sakura Quest will be talked about in Summer 2017)

SUMMER 2017:
About 3 episodes into the season right now so these are subject to change but first thoughts I guess:

Ballroom e Youkoso: One of my friends reads the manga so I decided to watch it on his recommendation. I didn’t think an anime about Ballroom dancing would be exciting, it’s a good time.

Boku no Hero Academia 2: I looove it. I relate to Deku’s worry about not being as strong as everyone else and Tsuyu my frog girl is back (FROPPY!). I get very hyped when watching it but the athletic festival really makes this season waaaay better than the first.

Centaur no Nayami: I have read some of the manga previous and forgot about it but you better keep your eyes on this. Yuri kiss count: 3 so far since 3rd ep came out. The mythological history part of it is cool too.

Gamers!: I watched this on a whim and I really enjoy it. It has the laid back club plot, good character dynamics/humor. There is also a feeling of loneliness that the characters show about gaming and I thought that was realistic. The OP also has ALOT of game references.

Kakeguri: You would really like this because of the amazing scary faces the girls make in the show. It’s about gambling and is very prison school-like. It’s pretty sick.

Koi to Uso: I think this my favorite this season, you know I love drama/romance. Decent amount of kissing already. It’s just really really good.

Made in Abyss: Perhaps the dark horse of the season. An adventure anime with some hidden mystery element that I feel will grant some tragedy in due time. Its super interesting and I could compare it to Shinsekai Yori maybe?

New Game 2: Ready for more gay, that’s all I need to say. I’ll be watching every episode with a friend who is also a fan of the first season and how cute it is.

Sakura Quest: Another P.A. Works family/group environment like Shirobako or Hanairo, It suffers from being kinda bland but they do work in a tourism board so of course it will be. The characters are relatable in the way that the theme of ‘adulting’ is hard. I’m not mad at it.

Symphogear 4: Please stop. Honestly, I watch it while I’m doing chores cause it’s getting so ridiculous with explosions and dinosaurs and I don’t even know anymore.

Classroom of the Elite (Youkoso Jitsuryouku..): I casually watched the first episode and really liked it. It’s like a more serious Baka to Test. I’m curious for more.


PREVIOUSLY WATCHED:
I guess I didn’t really watch THAT much after Aikatsu besides catching up to Aikatsu Stars, which I will inform you about in the ‘Currently Watching’.

Re: Zero: 3/10, I started watching after the anime podcast that I listen to did a review episode about it and I watched a few episodes with a friend before he told me it was bad. I didn’t want to give up on it though so I prevailed. My score seems harsh but let me set the stage:

1. Subaru worst MC ever, despite just being overall lame and choosing plain ass girl Emilia, he makes stupid decisions and remains super selfish even after Emilia tells him he is. #1 reason is in the episode where Rem tells him why she loves Subaru, Subaru regurgitates the same "if everyone thinks this of you or you think this of yourself, i will always love you" TO EMILIA. HE’S TRASH IM SORRY.
2. Plot holes galore: how did the witch and repeating death even get into subaru in the first place and what’s the deal with Rosewaal and Ram with the possession stuff? Like they are def fishy and that is never explained.
3. Questionable plot elements: The whale arc, witch cult and Betelgeuse in general. I did not see any part of these furthering the plot or questions in anyway besides furthering the butler’s backstory in the whale arc and the witches cult twisting Rem’s bones just for the tragedy factor.
Feel free to let me know your opinions because I believe you rated it rather high.

Oregairu: 5/10, I think my whole problem with the anime came down to personal taste. I did not relate to Hachiman’s pessimistic feelings and I prefer character related drama that brings development rather than plot related drama. I liked Yui as a character and preferred the first season’s animation. By s2 I was just losing interest in the characters and the ending was too vague for my tastes. It just wasn’t my cup of tea. 3/10.

Kiznaiver: 6/10, I liked this more than I thought solely on the character dynamics and interactions, everyone worked great in the friend group. Very unique characters that are based on archetypes but I believe they branch out from that. However, a pet peeve of mine is when an anime explains everything that was mysterious in plot in the last like 2 episodes and creates a conflict that is jam packed and neatly wrapped up in a bow by the end of the last episode. It was super duper unique and interesting anime so it deserves a watch. It took me a while to finish because school got in the way. Nico was the best character though, so cute.

Nodame Cantabile: 6/10, I really was in the mood for a dramatic romance so I heard great things about Nodame and it being a rather mature josei. That it is not. It’s not that I didn’t like it, it’s a very funny rom com with an emphasis on classical music, but I was really in the mood for a romance and there was barely any romantic interactions in the first season. Nodame has likable characters with a simple story but lacks romance and doesn’t give time to develop characters like other shows would; the anime’s focus feels more on advancing the classical music plot than the character relationships. The passage of time also feels way too fast yet the character are very constant. The same can be said with the second season (Paris-hen) except it’s way shorter and it takes place in France. New characters make it fresh and enjoyable but same lack of romance between the main couple. There is pretty good CGI in the anime, though. And the music is obviously a main focus and done well. Here is my favorite ED.

Mahoutsukai Precure: 7/10, How could I forget to talk about the latest precure? I don’t know what to say besides it was a rather weak season as far as the ‘filler’ episodes go but it was NOT bad by any means. What is really unique about it was the last 2 episodes were like epilogues and the very last episode had a Cure Whip cameo, who is the protag of Kira Kira Precure a la mode! The reason behind the magical world was interesting and unique too. You’re just gonna have to watch to find out...haha!

I also rewatched the movie Grave of Fireflies with a friend (which is always full of sobbing) and watched Millennium Actress. It made me miss Satoshi Kon, very cool cinematography as expected.

Please use this space to share your past watches :).

CURRENTLY WATCHING:

The only thing I’m currently watching is Nodame Cantabile s3 and I’m not very far right now but it will probably be a similar feel to what I previously discussed about the series.

Aikatsu Stars: I started watching it right after I finished the original Aikatsu and it’s basically just the same Aikatsu concept in a different universe with different girls. Obviously has similar emphasis on friendship and dreams but it is kind of more...angsty?...competitive?...than the original Aikatsu. Because of that, I don’t like it as much but I love idols and the Aikatsu world so it is helping my fix. This one is a really catchy song and I don’t have a favorite as passionately as Yurika but Kirara is growing on me.

Kira Kira Precure a la Mode: Hoho wow is this a great precure season. If you haven’t figured it out, everything is modeled from sweets so it is SUPER CUTE. The plot is moving along and we are just getting to see the new sets of villains so it’s very enjoyable. Also, this transformation could make anyone gay. Good ‘ol Precure shoujo-ai is alive.

MISC CHATTER:
I kind of put all of the side talks we had in one big section so leave out what you don’t feel is necessary and refer to old chats if you don’t really understand haha sorry:

I did seek your advice and watched the Mother’s Basement stuff you sent me! “Its OP, the Hero” That made me laugh. I’ve seen his what’s in an OP about “SAO is worse than you think” video before. I like the scientific explanations he tries to give for Saitama too. And dude….the Gakkou Gurashi one was so good. About how all the objects show the growth of character progression and stuff made me realize how much I love the series so much. But the manga is still superior. Speaking of which, I was reading updates on the Gakkou Gurashi manga and a translator’s note said that Yuki’s hat symbolizes a japanese proverb “to put a cat on one’s head” (b/c her hat looks like cat ears) which means to put on a friendly appearance to hide someone’s true personality. So, further food for thought. Still haven’t figured out the reason for the difference in the character’s uniforms, though.
I say there is a weeb scale, you know from Elitist Anime Watcher™ to Narutard, but I’m not sure where we would rank?

Whoops I’m super behind on Steven Universe so oh well.
I’ve seen the first Ju-on! I know it’s similar to the american “The Grudge” but I liked the Japanese one better, way more unsettling. I know exactly what you mean by SUDDEN LOUD NOISE, American films do this alot, horror or just general suspense genre films.
I LOVE CABIN IN THE WOODS! I’ve seen it so many times, it’s amazing. You’ve said the basics of what I like about it; the intentional so bad, it’s comedy and how it tricks the audience to seem like something it’s not and I thought the “behind the scenes” of how horror films are made was a very very very clever plot. I love that movie to death (DEASU, Deko voice from Chuunibyou came into my head). I shall check out those other Japanese Horror films, thank you!
I saw that after he defeated the dancer! You can also get her swords, no? That’s such an interesting point of the game, getting the battles spoils haha. (Dark Souls)
I think the character designs in Overwatch are cute, like Mercy! Who is your fave to play as? One time I played as D.Va with my friend and everyone over Xbox Live yelled at me for playing worst character. :( She’s so cute though!
Dude, I love X-Files so much. Legit, the truth is out there, aliens exist, and Mulder is a riot. But Netflix also removed the show so I’m mad at them.

And no I’ve never seen or heard of Death Stranding! I’m starting to flow away from games so much lately since I have zero time to play them. But that sure was an interesting trailer, I’m gonna look more into it since I loved P.T. Not sure why, but that trailer reminded me of the Unity Engine demo, linked if you haven’t seen it.

Talking about Monster Musume our previous convo reminds me of my favorite centorea character song. Check out the others if you haven’t! Also, the uncensored OVA is great.
Omg everytime I use that Sakura Trick bookmark I have to be wary of people around me on the train when I read because of the sweet yuri kiss featured on it haha.
I watched Ghost in The Shell so long ago that I never even put it in my list to remember what happened, will get a rewatch one day.

I LOVED the Hatsuki Yura song you send me “My Beloved Julietta”, I have been jamming to it for a while now. Bless Madokami for giving us permanent Yuri Goggles.
‘Valuable life lessons’ omg that was so funny, nah in reality we are GROWN ASS ADULTS WHO LIKE CUTE GIRLS WHOOPS. I’m so glad you liked all of my Aikatsu videos, if you need anymore Aikatsu tunes, I got them I promise. I also watched the Aikatsu Stars movie recently, which is hardly worth mentioning compared to the first Aikatsu movie but there was a special played with it that included the EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THE ORIGINAL Aikatsu girls which was just WOW. Here is the dancing scene from it. Gave me chills seeing them all back again.

Would you say you like FMA or Arslan better? I know FMA is a well known anime and is highly regarded as being very good, but in your personal opinion which is in a setting you like more?
I still have yet to watch Kizu and now Owarimonogatari is delayed until late August to air….yawn what are they doing.
Awww omg your reply about how you relate to Ema in Shirobako make me smile SO MUCH. I shall include a spoiler as well.

Like Ohana says, you gotta Fest it up!!! ULTRA HAPPY!! FABULOUS MAX!!! SHIAWASE GETTO DA YO! (feel free to include more inspiring anime quotes haha)

Aaaaand now I wait patiently for your amazing reply. ♥
Balut May 14, 2017 3:45 PM
Hey there Morby! I hope you are doing well. I sincerely apologize for my absence but I am now done with my junior year of college! Time flies!
This is just an update to let you know I am going to be free now to finally reply to your october comment lol...

It is def going to be edited so it can be as short as possible so we can continue talking regularly. I am going to cut out my reactions to anime that aired like last year which are no longer relevant to talk about (unless i really loved them). Basically a rapid fire comment so i can get to the better stuff.

I love you and look forward to my comment soon enough so i can tell you about cute anime girls and other boring stuff going on in my life that im sure you are missing haha.

Senpaiiiii! First of all, Happy Birthday :3 might not be the 25th yet :o I'm not sure xD
Hope you can take it easy and celebrate it maybe with your friends and family, or just relax xD

Maaan, but I'm really late, I'm sorry again! I've been busy with preparing my trip, and finally I'm over there in England xD
last week was my introduction week and everything's quite new and different, but I managed to survive it :D

About Mangas, I'm not sure if you follow them as well, but I'm currently reading Daily Witch and Everyday Lily (Pulse too, if you don't know about it, check it out, now i'm not sure if I already spamed you them) xD
Anyways, especially Daily Witch is a good read, it's Fantasy with Yuri *q* that 's so great, I love it! xD
(I've started with Virgins' Empire though, it's great, but somehow I couldn't continue yet :x but thanks for the recommendation again, Senpai!)
And Senpai! I'm not sure about the timezones, but I recently got L4D2 and I just wanted to ask if you're interested in playing with us anytime xD I really hope we get L4D3 soon too D:

So...since I'm replying so late now, C90 is like 1 month and a half ago ;w; but what's your favorite track? xD
mine's definitely Future House by Kirin https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FhTfvbLzj1E
and after that Xenado (who is probably himmel, I asked him on facebook): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HfPz-NWACF4 and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UVvydHr11Qc
I also loved Get in the Ring's melonbooks track https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qiK7nqraLAo
and lol, ENS' movie was really weird: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bIH3qS4uJ6s

still have to see which anime series I'm going to follow this season. I somehow missed the start xD what are you going to watch? :D


Balut Sep 9, 2016 12:32 PM
Thank you, Morby-kun. Its really reassuring to know that there is someone out there who cares and a friend that i've known for a while that is considerate and knows of the college pains!
I think LUSH stores are mostly in Europe, America and Canada but there may be some other places they may be. Lol, when i say i'm "into soaps lately" i mean like i enjoy treating myself to bath oriented accessories that make my time in the shower/bath more enjoyable haha. Like self-care kind of thing. And i've been listening to an anime podcast lately where they aren't biased or weeaboos plus they even shouted me out on their show cause i left them a review so that made me ecstatic. I return to school in like mid August i believe and i'll be moving stuff into the apartment so i am excited but also slightly stressed haha.
AHHH the Kyary show was amazing, it was full of Japanese people who live in nyc, weebs and people like me who just enjoy the music (perhaps that must mean i am also a weeb, oops). Yumeno Hajima Ring Ring would have to
be my favorite song by her but surprisingly enough, she didn't play it at the show! But i had an amazing time, i went with my friend sophia and we had such a positive and confident vibe from her singing irl.

Aw don't worry, do not be afraid of the 70+ episodes of Steven Universe because each episode is only 11 or so minutes long. The 3rd season is going right now so you’ll get around to SU and it’s canon gay gems soon haha.
OOO what types of horror movies lately? I really enjoy watching them, especially the bad horror movies that i treat as comedy haha. My summer has been fairly lonely, I’ve been learning to enjoy being alone and independent because I’ve lost a considerable amount of friends since the start of 2016 so it has been fun. But college is something to look forward for both of us! You more toward the end of it, which can be anticipating.
RIP 10 YEAR OLD COMPY. I was actually recently watching one of my friends play Dark Souls 3 and i thought the dancer (one of the bosses i believe, flowy clothes with a helmet and 2 swords?) was beautiful but the game looked v hard and he said it wasn’t as good as the other Dark Souls. I have obviously heard good things about Overwatch but i have no way in playing it, looks interesting enough though! Kindred Spirits on the Roof looks so cute and sweet oh my gosh, i watched the trailer aw aw, looks fun. That's alright! Not boring at all, you do some things! I mostly watch anime, X-Files on netflix, read novels that i have lying around and go outside to get coffee and play pokemon go.

*Monogatari talks down there shh shh.
I will be honest, Papi got a tad annoying in monster musume and I though Centorea was just so cute how embarrassed/confident she was at the same time, hilarious omg. Recently, i went with my friend from anime club to this japanese bookstore in nyc and there is anime merch there too. He got a blind box for monster musume and i got a love live one, he got Meroune and I GOT HANAYO LIKE I FLIPPED OUT THAT I GOT MY FAVE OF MUSE. She is currently on my cell phone cause it was a cellphone strap haha.
Ah i see, Overpowered characters are usually not much of a problem for me but we shall see once i decide to watch Overlord!

OMG, but okay do you see where the stuffed animals that Akari has in Yuru Yuri COULD be her buns?! It’s plausibly funny. But it was even funnier to find out that i was wrong all the way into the 3rd season.
Speaking of Sakura Trick in a side note, from that same japanese bookstore i got a free Sakura Trick bookmark and i use it when i read like regular novels. So everytime i open my “normal” books, i laugh because it’s like i’m hiding the fact that i am ANIME TRASH. And yes, i knew you were wondering, of course they are kissing on the bookmark.
Shomin Sample is average at best, but the yuru yuri manga cameo just like made it all the more funnier. It was about the main girl looking up to Akari and it was just so funny cause like Akari is always put aside as the invisible character omg. Yes, it’s a good bad anime to watch.
I am currently praying and blessing to you that you have the honor of finding the yuri in anime for me to watch. Amen, Hidan no Aria AA with be watched just for the yuri, it will be in my on hold, bless.

I guess I will uphold this format
WINTER 2016:
I actually thought of you while I was watching Erased, it has a lot of dark themes that you would love and while i said before that the ending is a little predictable, it kinda reminds you why you watch anime in a way? If that makes sense, like wow this is a pretty unique story kind of way. Here is the really good OP. But yes i think you would enjoy it, it did get a lot of hype too, which i think was deserving.
Oh yeah, Dagashi actually has some nice points of comedy that was funny, the character interaction could be bland but the main girl makes up for it since she is the main source of the comedy.
I have nothing else to say about DRRR besides that i'm glad you agree with me cause the series became such a mess, i wish they just stayed with the s1. I've never watched Baccano but i feel like i would like it better than DRRR.
I would say don’t even try Musaigen, it really truly was the studio telling us that haha. Kyoani is really fucking with us sometimes.
Ahhh i really just know you will love Shouwa Genroku, it has the best amount of tragedy, development and romance too! I would compare it to Sakamichi no Apollon but i don't think you have seen/read it?

The real question here is, do they kiss in Koukaku no Pandora? Because always +1 for yuri. How is it even related to Ghost in the Shell omg i didn't know that at all WAT.
Bleh i hate when anime takes itself too seriously, i feel that pain.
Isn't Schwarzesmarken related to Muv Luv or something? Maybe a different VN, i don't know enough. So bad that it's good, good stuff i love it. Im also baffled at how bad the CGI is in the OP, yet the character designs and sound is pretty good? Your Winter 2016 season sounded bad aw :(.




SPRING 2016:

I see you finished Ansatsu 2 and it was the same as my score, a 5! I hope i didn’t influence your opinion in a bad way or anything. What are your thoughts? I think you’d probably like the twists and stuff that happened with Kayano and Koro-sensei’s past but i thought the delivery was kinda poor.
HIBIREN! NO REGRETTI. IM DEAD. It made me laugh so hard reading through that ahh. I lost it that ruri was in love with a construction sign and everything Botan said made me feel so bad for her, poor bby. At the same time, their misfortune was really funny, especially Anne. I came for yuri, comedy and the color palette and i am not disappointed. The magical girl episode was the best.
I agree with that on Bakuon, i did feel bad for the Suzuki hate a lot even if i didn't really understand it haha.
AHHHH Tsuyu best girl of this year, gero gero. I actually really did enjoy the whole plot of Boku no Hero Academia.
Kancolle is probably better than Haifuri though. I definitely agree with you on that, i think they really did get lazy when they put the virus plot on and then never explained. The biggest question is why was the CGI for the ships so good but once it was on the girls it was bad? I don't know, i really did not enjoy it once i realized it was getting serious. The festival episode or whatever was funny, i'll give it that.
I approve of Kuma Miko, a very funny series but be wary that the ending is kinda bleh. It's just a fun casual watch.
Mayoiga had such a cool concept and then like wrecked it with awful CGI and TRYING to kinda do character development.
I know for an absolute fact that you will love Sansha Sanyou, i cannot say enough great things about it, it's just too funny and too cute. Just please watch it and you will understand.
Sigh, i feel the same way. My friend who has read the manga said it is a good part like at the end but it's really slow and he doesn't really know why it is 39 episodes because it's the shortest arc out of all the jojo arcs. So he’s thoroughly confused on that one. Also, they probably won't animate anymore of jojo because the stands in the other parts are like actual names of American artists and stuff so there would be waaaay too much copywrite to go into it. But yeah agreed, this season of jojo is very meh. I don't really have any other opinions besides that Yukako and Yohane are pretty wild and i like them. (Yohane is supposed to be an insert character to mirror the creator of jojo, Araki, idk this is what my friend told me).

I was interested in Flying Witch but because of the sheer number of anime i was watching, it was on the maybe list and thus the cutting block eventually. But wow those scenes, I loooooove the scene with the Mandrake, i'm dying. It certainly feels heartwarming without any cliches or forcing plot. Ahh thank you for the recc, it will be watched on a bad day aw.
I actually watched half of the first episode of Sakamoto because a lot of the hype i've heard of it, and i just didn’t think it was that funny so i didn’t give it another episode. But i agree, What an OP!
I've seen some gifs and screenshots of the Phoenix Wright anime and although i don't know much about the franchise, it looks terrible so it must be bad from what you are saying? I agree in giving it until ep 5 if you really enjoy Ace Attorney but like drop that shit if it doesn’t get good.
Kotetsujou, or as some people have been calling Shingeki no Train, did have a unique and explosively good start as well as the animation and art just wowing me in the PV initially. Once Biba came in, i think that’s where the decline happened. All the other stuff that happened i was just whatever about it.

SUMMER 2016!:
I think this season is pretty decent, but definitely not extraordinary. I can’t really say that I have a favorite but i enjoy a handful of the ones i’m watching!
91 Days seems to have a lot of western-ized influence, its about prohibition and its really good, just hard to follow with all the mafia groups. It is certainly thrilling.
Amaama to Inazuma is a really sweet and heartwarming anime about a single father who doesn’t know how to cook for his daughter since his wife died recently and his student helps him cook for her. The little girl in it is adorable and it gives you such a fluffy feeling, like a really well done SoL. I’m really fond of it and it’s also incredibly funny. It has a nice subtly to it.
Amanchu is basically what I hope is light yuri scuba diving adventures. I love the 2 main girls and how they interact, I just want them to kiss underwater or really kiss period. They also make alot of funny faces, the main girl, Pikari, reminds me of Ohana (Hanairo) in a way. A good time.
Bananya...I actually cannot give you a decent answer as to why I am watching this short. But….Anime of the year 10/10, Cat is a banana so it’s a masterpiece, a must watch.
Cheer Danshi I guess i would say is the “worst” anime that I’m watching this season but it’s still not SUPER BAD. I started watching it cause the fluid animation during cheer scenes was impressive but the animation can also be poo, have some dry humor and bland characters but I dont know, it has a setting in college and men doing a female dominated sport. It’s interesting and kinda empowering.
Kinda talked about Jojo Diamond before but it is kinda boring and SoL with the plot. After stardust, you want more of that hot blooded plot but Diamond doesn’t really deliver. It seems very dragged out too. The animation is kinda sub-par compared to the other Jojo’s so i dont know, im enjoying it but i find myself missing stardust and the first season. I like Rohan and Yukako as characters but everything seems kinda..random? There is no flow, idk.
Kono Bijitsubu i thought was sort of repetitive and bland at first but the humor is actually getting pretty good half way through, good music too! Reminds me of what i thought was bad with Joshiraku but was actually really charming.
OKAY SO LOVE LIVE SUNSHINE IS GREAT OBVIOUSLY, RUBY IS MY FAVE CHARACTER SO FAR AND YOHANE IS A LOVELY CHUUNIBYOU MESS, MOVING ON??? WHAT ELSE IS THERE TO SAY IT’S GREAT! I love how there might be mean rivals like A-Rise didnt really do that to Muse but maybe this new unit will idk we shall see im excited. Shout out to my run on sentences.
Mob Psycho 100 is certainly cause of ONE HYPPPEEEEE. It’s stylistically really amazing and abstract and there is character development already which i love love love. Mob is a very interesting character but there is also the charm of the underlying plot and humor thrown in. The psychological parts i really enjoy too. Bones is doing an amazing job wow.
I heard of New Game’s manga before but wow i didn’t even know you were keeping up with it! Art and animation wise, it’s the best thing airing right now. The animation is so fluid and of course i’ts by Doga Kobo, especially some scenes where you see Aoba’s emotions really well and the changing scene in ep 6 is just subtly animated very well. I can taste the yuri sprinkled in. Umiko and Nenecchi are my faves so far. I do think that the humor in New Game could be a little bland, but it’s very cute and impressive.
Orange i’ve been interested in the manga for quite some time but i never got around to reading it (typical me) but i thought the anime had really weird and awkward editing. Then once the plot unfolds you realize they are doing it on purpose to set the mood of the high school setting and what is to be revealed. I want to say it’s less a romance and more a drama. Alot of feelings and im waiting for other characters to develop. I’m surprised at how much i like it. It’s very relatable, imo.
You really should get into Shokugeki eventually, my friends who read the manga told me that the anime very faithful to it. There really isn’t much else to say is that it’s as good as the first season, it’s about intense cooking there is no “heavy” plot here. But…...the ending is by nano.ripe (hanairo soundtrack) so +1 already. And it’s only half cour but tis a good time.

No you are completely right! A lot of the Precure fandom (at least what i’ve seen) is kinda stuck in the older shows OR heartcatch is like the epitome of Precure. Heartcatch wasn’t bad, it just didn’t live up to the pedestal it’s put on. Lots do not enjoy Smile because it has “too much filler”, as if that is a bad thing in magical girl anime...cause the purpose is...character….development. And Smile does it fantastically. Plus the “”filler”” is really funny and has great messages for kids.
Ahhh bless your goddess heart, Morby. You’re certainly welcome for getting you into Precure, i knew you wouldn’t be disappointed. I thought doki doki had some unique plot twists in it and i believed it could stand alone as a really good magical girl anime, not just a good precure show, but im so glad we both agree. Regina was def best character but i remember the whole time thinking…..how is he her dad like..who...how. Haha
Mahou Tsukai is very nicely animated, the character designs are top notch and the witches plot is very enjoyable. If ONLY THE SUBBERS WEREN’T TWO WEEKS BEHIND HJADHHFJUYEUHFI. Its nice, i like it, introduced another cure and i am not disappointed.

It was psychologically intense to the point where I thought you would enjoy Kotoura-san but then it got repetitive and in the end it was a decent watch with a very memorable start.
The entirety of Jojo filled to the brim with memorable quotes that will probably be uttered in our conversations at some point. I agree that Jotaro grew on me and while the first season is amazing, Stardust Crusaders is just too good to like. Do you have a favorite stand? I loved Vanilla Ice’s (lol) Cream but i also kinda like in Diamond the Cinderella stand, but Stardust’s stands definitely have more impact. Polynarff had to be my favorite character but… Kakyoin...I just cant with him sometimes omg. I loved it i loved the Jojos.
Knowing you, I think you may like Fresh Precure more than Go Princess Precure just because of the plot twists that occur in it but Go Princess Precure is like super good as far as cute girls and just the whole sweetness of the lessons for girls are. But yes you shall watch all of the Precure at some point but i think the one you’d like the most is Fresh. Also the main pink haired girl, Love, is a really great main, like she isn’t plain or anything, kinda like Miyuki in a way from Smile. It has amazing humor too.
*This will be long because it’s on Aikatsu*
Ahhh you respect my opinion that makes me so happy, especially on anime with cute girls in it lmao. I am pretty much almost done with Aikatsu at this point and I have watched 140 episodes in a span of an entire 3 months of summer, I can tell you right now that it has become one of my favorites. The amount of episodes is intimidating but i literally demolished them so fast and fell in love with all of it. I’ve never listened to Hatsuki Yura so i looked it up just now and listening to it as we speak and ah what a nice gothic style. I knew that this was so you for some reason haha. How did you find this it’s so good! The gothic style is very nice and while i wouldn’t say it’s a favorite of mine, Yurika is absolutely my favorite girl in Aikatsu. Glass Doll is her first song but Eternally Flickering Flame is another of hers. I just love anything Yurika-sama. Basically, she is a character idol that acts like she is a confident vampire that “will suck your blood” if you say something to her but in reality without her persona she is a sweet, shy and kinda insecure perfect princess that loves Europeans style and vampire romance manga omG. But yes she has made it to my top 10 favorite characters and as you can see, is now my icon.
Aikatsu is split into a lot of seasons like 1 to 51 is s1, 52 to 101 is s2 and so on, so 4 seasons in total. My favorite season is season 1 because i love the main cast and how they interact but at the end of s2, they kinda put a next generation of aikatsu and melt the old cast members away. They also bring out a new idol school and girls from that school in s2 and its barely heard from again in the next seasons. So like this show is not perfect, especially in terms of the CGI in
season 1, compared to season 2 and season 3. Especially in the expressions the characters make when they are in the CGI animation. But what really makes Aikatsu shine is the character interactions and just the overall dynamic of the anime. This may or may not make sense, but the world that Aikatsu takes place in, all the parts of the plot of the idol school and stuff, kind of made me remember why i watch anime. To like be invested into this fictional world with fictional people living their lives as if it was normal and all the tribulations they go through. The lessons are fantastic in the show for me and i could only imagine how little girls take them to heart too. I have so many quotes that i wrote in the comments section of my entry on the show itself, which idk if anyone else uses besides me haha. It is just a very genuine show and while im not finished with it just yet, its already a 10/10, no question. It makes me so happy. If you are curious as to which ones are my faves, it goes Yurika, Ran, Kii, Hinaki. I also have too many fave songs but if i had to pick one it would be Prism Spiral because its always in my head omg. I also apologize for the amount of Aikatsu videos. Tl;dr just watch it PLEASE you will not be disappointed.

I LOVED EVERY TIME KOHINA SMILED IN GUGURE KOKKURI-SAN THAT HER EYES FELL OFF. I thought it was going to be a full on parody show but they kinda tried with it. The comedy did get old sometimes but it still made me laugh a whole lot.
Omg and Hibike getting a season 2 in Fall 2016. I’m so excited for more gay in my face, bless Kyoani. I knew you would love it.
Highschool DxD seems like something kinda hard to stomach with all the ecchi. I know they show actual boobage and nipples? There is a time and place for a lot of fanservice i guess.
For lack of a better word, the Arslan Senki OP you send me is just plain awesome, it’s such a pumped up tempo with really engaging visuals and fight scenes. I can see the resemblance to FMA, even though i have never watched FMA myself but wow just seeing that op really intrigues me. I remember hearing about it while it was airing but i didn’t think much of it. Definitely going to PTW it since you liked it that much.
I heard a lot about Owari no Seraph, mostly in the notion of children dying or something? That’s really all I’ve seen about it but it’s sad that it was kinda meh in some aspects and failed story wise. The Opening has wowed me, it sort of reminds me of the Higurashi OP in some aspects, like how serene it is but also creepy? So far i like pink haired girl hehe. I don't know why i even bothered to double check, but i looked up the two characters you said you shipped hard and of course they are both girls, do it for the yuri.
Wow i feel like your time watching anime is all over the place at this time, quite the variety. I’ve heard of the classic GTO and how funny it is but woah character development?? SIGN ME UP!

I agree! That was a real strong point of both Shirobako and Hanasaku Iroha, they made everyone seem like real people with their unique characteristics. It made you cry a bunch?! Ah i am so happy that i introduced you to a new fave anime. When Shizuka got into the anime with everyone and it’s like their dreams were achieved, I loved it and i will admit how it did make me a cry a bit. How does Ema relate to you personally, if you don't mind me asking? I love knowing favorite character’s significance to my friends. Like how did you identify with her problems? You are so welcome i feel like a mother that i bestowed this anime upon you aw.
I know you really enjoyed Girls und Panzar anime but to think that the movie is even better. Gah now I gotta watch it. I watched like a half hour of Kizumonogatari if that is significant but it was late when i started it so I stopped in the middle and now the pt 2 came out so i gotta get to that eventually.
I also see you are watching Re: Zero, i have heard some really good praise about it and I actually listen to an anime podcast that loves it too. The podcast is called Weeabooze and its on itunes and soundcloud if you want to listen to it! Anyway, what do you think of Re: Zero?

I messaged you about it btw so the next time you are online we can private message about it if you are so inclined to hear about my complain. But ive just been thinking about how long we have been talking on MAL and it blows my mind and i just want to thank you for being my friend this long and i will be getting more active on here this year since i am feeling better overall lately. Again, school does keep us busy so there will always be delays, but i will make it my utmost duty to reply speedily :)

(just realized i didnt put kotetsujou in there either, i didnt really like it either, nice hype tho)
