Another franchise I really like is F-Zero. F-Zero GX and F-Zero X Are the best racing games I've ever played, and probably the most difficult! what do you think? <3

I need to play it! Thx for the recommend =D

about Mario Kart, my fav is Mario Kart 64, I loved playing with my friends on that old and cubic TV xD

Breakdowns happen bruh. It's overcoming them and moving on that matters. You got a scholarship huh? That's good news! Keep it up yo!

QZGS is good. The Web novel is even better! I'm yet to resume reading it. It's has like around 760 chapters translated, if I'm not mistaken. I'm still at 260. For Kakegurui, I'll read the manga first, it doesn't seem to have a lot of chapters out so far. After catching up, I'll think of jumping into the anime if I liked the story that much.

A lot of people I know on MAL got mangas stacked up, to actually read them is another thing. You probably should start with the mangas you got in hard copy first and foremost. I understand the thing with distractions. For me to determine how much concentration I'll give to a manga, it depends on the manga itself. Is it serious or comedic? Is it a simple plot or there are plots to uncover? Is it a new read for me or is it a reread? It depends. I'm experiencing the same as you on both counts on noisy household and short attention span. However, my short attention span is due to the household entirely.

Oh? You gonna read something today? Go on then, DO ITTTTTTTTTT!!!!!

From my observations, hatedoms surface out of spite and wanting their opinions to be noticed. Whenever I find videos I don't like on YT, I simply close it out or move onto the next one. Going out of my way to hit the dislike button and then say something vindictive about it feels like a waste of time and energy. But when you're driven by hatred and negativity, it actually becomes fun and almost a necessity to make a point out of it. I used to be that way to some extent, so I generally steer clear of it nowadays especially when it comes to anime. Better to be Zen'd out and enjoy what matters to you.

"One thing I have promised myself is that I will never stop doing something that I like as long as it isn't a harm to myself or anyone around me." - Probably the best recourse for the time being. I generally stick by the "live and let live" mentality so long as it's reciprocated. I returned to anime a bit over 5 years ago. In that time, I don't really feel like I've gotten any older. I mean, I see changes and certainly I've grown as a person. I've definitely become a better person than who I was back then. But I don't feel like I suddenly leaped forward into adulthood. It's not like there's a Land of Adults or anything like that (That's a story in Kino's Journey by the way. Hah!).

The entire notion of growing up with 21st century anime and sticking by it through adulthood is unheard of because it hasn't actually happened yet. At least, not into mid-life and beyond. In that sense, you could say we're pioneers of sorts.

Heh, speaking of gaming and brothers...when my older brother moved out, he took some of our N64 games. The rest of them are lost in our parents' house somewhere. So when I said I was disappointed I couldn't replay Ocarina of Time or Super Mario 64, he got them for me at Christmas. It's such a nostalgia rush, that's for sure.

My general rule has been to use 10% of my paycheck on fun and the rest on savings/living. So far that's kept me debt free and content. I'm not a very material person to begin with and most of what I want is stuff money simply can't buy.

Ya know, I used to think that way about politics and online debates for literally my entire life. I think it changed when I became aware of the most recent election. Even though I know those debates are still so pointless, they're not entirely fruitless. Even talking to a brick wall helps me explore certain ideas and beliefs that, one year ago, I never would have been aware of. Certainly I think I'd be better off to stop, but I also want to apply what I have learned as well. One thing's for sure though, I felt like I was on a better road back when I was taking most of my values and morals from anime. And that's exactly why I'm so desperate to get back to it. These past 5 years, it's been a constant inspiration that's made me realize where I can truly find my purpose in life.

I haven't actually read Hiyokoi. I keep building up a backlog of shoujo manga I want to read (KareKano, Fruits Basket, Gakuen Alice, etc etc). If I wasn't a slow reader, I'd probably keep up with manga more often. It literally takes me 15 minutes to read a 40 page chapter.

Well if trying to keep with a show each day is a hassle, I have an Amagami Challenge to sell you: http://i.imgur.com/7UVCXg.jpg

Now THAT is a challenge (and one I've sadly done once now).

Indeed, "excessive negativity" is a good way to put it. It's why those "GENKI-DEEEEESU" characters tend to be some of my favorites. They're upbeat, optimistic and constantly doing their best to be a light in the world. Though to be fair, it's also just really cute.

I would like to think Trump is part of the K-On master race. Either way, he is Making Moe Great Again.

While I definitely like anime from all time periods, there's certainly flaws with the industry today that irk me as well. Japan's lack of outreach to its western fans is a bit saddening. And I don't mean Americanizing anime for casual viewers either. I mean people like you and I, who want more of what they're already doing. Another thing is, as you've said, a severe lack of complete adaptations. Anime has become more bountiful, but at the cost of longevity. I can't even fathom another major show the likes of One Piece or Naruto coming out today and airing for 10 years to come.

And on a final note, I really wish they'd do away with censorship. Like okay, a girl is being ripped in half in Tokyo Ghoul but we need to blur out the syringes on the table because that might be offensive? Give me a break.
Jazz3302 Aug 7, 3:57 PM
Into the Galaxy - Super Mario Galaxy and Sky Station Galaxy - Super Mario Galaxy 2 are my favorite soundtracks.

Super Paper Mario Wii, It was the only one I played. I find it excellent! and Mario Kart, you like? ^^
Angeldust7 Aug 6, 7:10 PM
Hi, I'm doing pretty well for myself I guess. Right now I'm going into my third year of college and in between then and now my relationship with anime has shifted dramatically. I burned out pretty hard while I was still in High School and I don't think I've really recovered since then. I still like anime and even went to Anime Expo in Los Angeles twice but I haven't really been able to consume anime at the rate I used to back when I was 16/17. I'm going to try to update my list more often but I can't really promise anything since I'm going to very busy this school year.

How have you been?
Raging_Berserker Aug 5, 5:50 PM
What's school without good and bad times? Experience bro, experience!

Yeah. I got a few other comedy anime recommends from pals online, so I'll focus on that as well. I'll also take on Ajin simultaneously. From then on, I'll see Berserk 2016 and 2017, Blame! movie, then finish Quan Zhi Gao Shou (King's Avatar). Anything outside that, I'll have to check out my PTW list. I also wanted to read Kakegurui manga, I been catching wind of its anime adaptation been fun as well. I'll most likely jump into that franchise as well. Haha I'm pretty much a nomad in this realm, however, I care more for mangas rather than anime.

Is from Touhou, I'm not a big fan but I liked this picture haha
Jazz3302 Aug 2, 1:29 PM
Yes, I even got the 242 stars 5 times xD I'm very fanboy of the franchise! hehe
The soundtrack, gameplay, visual, everything is amazing in this game! what do you think? ^^
Raging_Berserker Jul 29, 10:37 AM
At least, you're done, that's all that matters. Fuck that bitch called high school man, hope you came in her balls deep too? Hehehe.

I recently saw Daily Lives of High School Boys, really good comedy. It made me laugh a lot. I plan on watching all the skits or OVA in the franchise as well. After that, I'm bouncing back to Ajin season 1 and trying to catch up with all its anime.

Well, in general, I'm way way way behind anime. I'm like 2yrs behind by I try. I got a few other anime to watch bro. How about you?
Ratohnhaketon Jul 28, 9:19 PM
Well at least there's no pressure even if you don't catch up. I thought I'd catch up to Aikatsu when I started it. I was around 90 episodes behind. Now I'm at least 180 behind including both series. It's still an absolute delight to watch at my own pace regardless. There's also One Piece, which literally isn't going to end for at least another 5+ years. Got all the time in the world to savor that.

Yep, I've gotten flak on YouTube for that as well. People start stalking my anime playlists and then send comments to me "ur into that cartoon jap porn??? LOSER!" It's part of that delusional YT hierarchy where the Breaking Bad avatar belittles the Game of Thrones avatar who berates Family Guy avatar who chastises the Death Note avatar who looks down on the Naruto avatar who finally scoffs at the K-On avatar who was just saying that they prefer cheese to pepperoni.

I could never watch anime, let alone anything, with my mom. She asks too many questions during the show and then makes random remarks about trivial things that end up becoming more important to her than the main plot. No joke, I could show her the Ushio field scene from After Story and her first thought will be "Look at those flowers. What flowers are they? I wonder if they would stir up my allergies" and then boom, the scene is over and she'd be like "Sorry what happened just now?"

But lighthearted ranting and raving aside, it sounds like a neat thing to be able to share with your family. I hear stories of kids who introduce their parents to anime, but I start to wonder what it will be like when I have my own family. Would I introduce my kids to anime? Would that be part of family bonding? Is it really alright for me to still like shows such as Fate/kaleid or your run-of-the-mill harem with a wife and children? It's just surreal to think about.

As for anime merch, I decided that I'd start thinking about room decoration after I get DVDs/BDs of all of my favorites. That's at least the one thing I have been collecting as early as 2006. I actually got Shingeki no Kyojin BDs a little bit ago. There's a bigger incentive when I have an XB1 to watch them on.

The more I try to "catch up" on anime, the more I realize the futility of that mindset. Once you take a long enough break, it's hard to just jump back in, especially if I look and think "holy smokes, so much to watch before I can get to the next shows." It's like trying to run a mile after sitting around for a month. But honestly, I wouldn't mind watching an episode or two per day if it meant getting back to the roots of my greatest passion. As long as I don't give it up entirely, I want to take it with me on my journey through life.

Indeed, there's plenty of worthwhile insight to be had from all of those rabbit hole detours into Wonderland. All of my life, I was never a political person until about a year ago. Now it's something I can get lost in for hours. While I have a better sense of who I am and my personal values, I really do want to hang it up and move forward. Apply what I've learned to my life instead of fooling around with dozens of YT videos or spending 4 hours debating with Anon8237 about what free speech means.

Well if you're interested, I'm pretty sure Dark Cloud 2 is available on the PS4. It has that anime-esque style to it. I've found Dark Cloud to have one of the most satisfying progression systems in any game I've played. It's a one of a kind experience which, unfortunately, means that there's just nothing else like it.

Dude, I LOVED that Hiyokoi special. My goodness, Hiyori just makes my heart flutter all fuwa fuwa (Okay, now you can call me a weeb). I just have a soft spot for shoujo romance. What I would have given to see a bonafide TV series for this: https://i.giphy.com/media/Xo9d0UTneyqZy/200_s.gif

Speaking of watching anime at certain times, every December I watch a 24-26 episode show to countdown the days till Christmas. I'm sure people have thought of it before, but it's something I came up with for myself years ago and became one of my favorite anime traditions.

I mostly agree about the whole "growing out" notion. It's especially ironic when the same people who say that are watching South Park, Game of Thrones, or some rehash comic book film. Not that there's anything wrong with 'em, just that people are far more "childish" than they let on. I'd even say there's nothing wrong with adults liking kids' anime either. One of my favorites (Les Miserables) is aimed at little girls, yet the themes it draws out are nothing short of something only an adult could fully appreciate.

People's hearts tend to harden as they get older. It's something I struggle with and resist myself, but it's easy to get set in your ways and lose sight of the feelings that were once second nature. The way I see it, anime (in a general sense) tends to reflect very pure, raw emotions that those people lose through age. Maybe people reject it because of that bitterness and desire to conform into the world of adults. The world where dreams and passion are sacrificed for efficiency and calculation. It's not like they're demons reacting to holy water, but I tend to notice that adults who do like "childish" things tend to be more passionate about life and being true to themselves. Well, except for bronies. Sometimes it just leads to regression and utter horror.

Yeah I'm 26. Born in 1990. My MAL birthday is all messed up, mainly because I like to have fun with my profile. The current birth date on there is Donald Trump's (oof!).

Most of my favorites are from pre-2010, but that's just because of the content as opposed to the year. I've always found the old vs new debate trite and shortsighted. I can understand personal preferences, but anime as a serious medium is still fairly young in comparison to other forms of storytelling. I've studied (and even been in) plays that are literally thousands of years old. The tale of the human condition is timeless.

Haloooo!

Thanks for the FR my bro, nice to meet you!!

If you want to talk about anything feel free to leave me a comment ^^
Jazz3302 Jul 25, 10:00 PM
Thx for the request! =D
btw, I love Nintendo, and Super Mario Galaxy is the best game I've ever played!
giannis85 Jul 25, 5:07 PM
Thank you too for accepting! It's true that I add to the list nearly any non-watched anime I discover, for watching it in the near future! Now, how many... decades I'm gonna need to see them all... Well, that's a different story, xd!
Ratohnhaketon Jul 25, 2:36 AM
Well the moment of reckoning we've been waiting for finally arrived. The countdown for that Fairy Tail finale is upon us. Hopefully it starts first thing for Winter 2018. There's also a movie for it, Fairy Tail: Dragon Cry, that's supposed to air in theaters in August. I haven't seen it listed for my area, but I'll definitely go if I can. I haven't seen an anime film in cinema since Yu Gi Oh when I was a kid.

Yeah, I'd actually venture to say anime plays a direct role in my fitness. Ever since I stopped watching regularly, I've been putting on weight again. Quite the irony that I've gotta start going at it full force again by sitting in front of my computer and wasting away for hours at a time.

Hey you know what? I'm too deep into anime now for "weeaboo" to hurt. I actually find it to be somewhat of a compliment at this point. Despite practically being in love with anime, I don't really ever show it in my life. I don't have any merchandise, I don't play anime music in public, I don't go to conventions and I barely even talk about it with other pals who watch anime. I take the various lessons and emotions that anime offers to heart and just hone them to fit my own life. Now with that said, I have been taking interest in some merchandise recently. Would love to riddle my room with posters and complete my bed with waifu pillows and blankets.

Now and then, I have that day where I just don't do anything. Absolutely nothing. I get up at sunrise, start a conversation on Skype, then it's sundown and I'm like "Uhh...what?" Having bad time management skills is very frustrating. I've tried to make little "To Do" lists, but anime always somehow ends up at the bottom and I can never spread out the time the way I want to. That's especially true when I'm on YouTube. Start out with some random video about the current events and then 6 hours later, you're on some channel with a talking cat that tells you that ice skating atop a yacht under the Aurora Borealis helps alleviate stress. The internet is one giant rabbit hole, that's for sure.

My basic rule on the PS4 is simple. If they finally come out with Dark Cloud 3, I'll buy one without question. I love the Dark Cloud games and replay them on my PS2 yearly. I'd likely say it's one of my top 3 game franchises along with Assassin's Creed and Splinter Cell. If you do get the upcoming AC, you'll be just in time for Ancient Egypt. I'm extremely excited considering the implications of that time period in the overall story.

It's a shame because there's so many VNs that look like they'd be incredibly interesting. I also like the vibe that comes with ones the likes of Key titles and ef: A Tale. But yeah, the time it takes is the main reason I steer clear. Though truth be told, that has its perks. When you watch an anime adaptation, you don't have to be disgruntled by its lack of faithfulness to le sauce (another perk of barely reading manga).

Since Kino's Journey is an episodic series, it's more likely the new series will be covering different material. There's plenty of source material to draw from, so I don't mind if they decide to make like Natsume Yuujinchou and give us 6 full seasons.

This is just my preference, but Air is great for the summer whilst Kanon (2006) is perfect for December-ish. I can't fathom watching any of those shows with my family. I used to watch more mainstream titles like FMA with my brothers, but both of them "grew" out of anime. No one else in my family really understands it. Which is fine with me, since anime is definitely "Me Time." I can immerse myself into it more when I'm alone.

Well beyond Pokemon and the like, I first saw bits of Escaflowne when I was 9 (in 1999). The first time I actually started becoming aware of anime was in 2002, when I started watching the likes of Rurouni Kenshin, G Gundam, and Inuyasha. Ironically I barely watched DBZ, save for some episodes on Toonami. So I'd say I took full interest in it around 15 years ago. While I have fond memories of those old school days, I love where anime has gone. I get to enjoy the best of both worlds.
